Family Island — Farming game for Negative User Reviews

Love the concept, but....I just wish I could play it for longer. It takes me about 2 minutes to use my energy on clearing around 3 items... then I close the app again & have to wait for more energy to build up before I can do anything. It’s annoying. Feels like it’s going to take forever to actually get anywhere in the game & I refuse to spend money buying the items required, which is what they ultimately want me to do. I know the developers are responding to people saying they need to accumulate their energy... but where’s the fun in that? I’m meant to log on several times a day, collect the energy & do nothing else whilst I wait? Then use it all in one hit trying to get rid of a large item? It’s just irritating. Also in order to get energy from the merchant or shaman I need to complete their orders.. which I need energy for to get the items in the first place. So it doesn’t help 🙃 If energy wasn’t such a pain I’d love this game. I see so many other people say thing the same thing..Version: 202012.0.9541

Costly gameI really enjoy the game but the wait time is a big issue and I am almost done to the exploring it cost way too much for way too little why does everything have to have hard to get products just to get through the next section. I came in first place with with the dolphin island but I put way too much money into it but I think that 1000 points should last at least through 1/2 of the island not 1/2 of of one little section with gather the shells and making items should not cost 150 points just to make 3 wheels plus the cost of hatching the other items. I enjoy making things for the game but because of the cost I believe I may have to quit playing I am on socsec and cannot afford this game and another thing after the time is up the island disappears and I really liked the island. I would rather have it then the three that never goes away. Dolphins are a favorite which is why I kept paying to help them. Please make playing less costly and I will stay but I am ready to quit with nothing to show for the cost except two aquariums and a dolphin in a child’s play pool. I am scared to check my bank on how much I put into the game. Thank you from a disabled grandmother..Version: 2022206.1.22525

The ads are terrible.I’ve never played this game before but I get spam emails telling me to try it all the time. I’m not gonna play this game and I’m just gonna keep reporting your spam mail you send me. 🤷.Version: 2022206.1.22525

Great concept spoiled by greedFirst let me say that I routinely spend money on games. I realize how much work goes into creating and maintaining something like this. I throw around $15 at a game once I decide it is worth playing, and continue to support it if I love it. This game is theoretically awesome. However, it is a mind numbingly slow process to progress because of the energy requirements. The free energy you receive will clear a rock, a tree, or a few bushes. I can see the potential in this game and spent my $15, but the energy requirements ate that up in minutes. I will probably slog on with it when I get a free moment, but it’s not worth spending money on considering how little you get for it and how much it requires. It really is a shame. The graphics are awesome and the characters love able. The storyline is interesting and even the dialogue is amusing. A lot of attention to detail has been used, as tapping on a person tickles them. This is obviously someone’s brain child which has sadly been overmonetized. 5 stars for the designer, -3 star for the financial department. Average them and you get a pretty average, not worth paying for, game..Version: 202011.1.9290

Crashing since last updateGreat game until latest update. Crashes almost immediately after loading. Unplayable means it might as well not exist..Version: 202006.1.7513

WthWhat is wrong with the game? Cannot connect to server. Super irritating..Version: 2021144.0.12000

Please read so you don’t waste your time spending $$$Great game! I love the story, the challenges are fun and exciting and the graphics are amazing. I find myself waking up in the middle of the night playing and working on my progress. BUT, I do feel like the amount of progress you can achieve with the energy that you have (for free) is completely disproportionate to the amount of work to be done. I am one that will pay (real money) to push forward, even with that the energy does not last long! I have spent $100’s for energy and rubies, yet still it could take weeks to complete certain tasks and upgrades. Even still I won’t delete (right now) because I want to see the progress I can make. Honestly I can see myself deleting this game further down the line for LACK of FREE PROGRESS. Update: I have started to notice that little tasks that I have for sure completed are not counted so I am having to go back and redo a lot of the small tasks. I do not like that you can’t buy or get keys, shovels or picks any other way than through the boat guy or to spend real money. I’m growing tired of this game and will probably delete soon. Angry birds is getting more of my attention now. Final update: This game was exciting and addictive in the beginning but the progress is so super slow that the game became repetitive and boring. I have put a lot of real money into this game but today is the day I delete..Version: 202016.2.10581

Support cannot be contactedI have been playing the game for some time. I have an issue and no one to contact. We are promised things that don’t eventuate. (Like levelling up). Going through the contact form is ridiculous and impossible. Always the same ‘reload the game and submit again. Sorry for the inconvenience’. REALLY! What’s the point in having a form to fill in? I have been trying to contact support a number of times each day! MOST of the things to do to progress in the game are beyond comment. Wayyy too hard and takes an impossible amount of time. I don’t spend money! Can’t see much logic in making things impossible to build and repair. A few of the ads we have to watch are adult content and should be removed! (And reported!) I’m looking for another game!.Version: 2021110.0.11384

Storage spaceDon’t recommend download this game because you can only get so far before you can’t go any further the developer (s) should have thought of different things to find tune the game such as storage for everything that you gather and if you want to upgrade the storage space you can’t because you are unable to craft the needed items because your storage space is full, one thing that they should have done in that instance would be to have unlimited storage space instead of having to constantly upgrade the storage space it’s the worst game I have played I liked it at first but then the storage space issue arose and I just got fed up with the issue and just installed the game a few minutes ago and I won’t ever reinstall the game I sent a message to support about it and got no response from them so I would give this game a one in a half star if it were possible but it’s not game developers should think of that before releasing their game instead of just rushing to release it by taking short cuts 🤬.Version: 2022158.0.17384

CrashingSince updating I am constantly frozen out and crashing. I like the game but it’s becoming very frustrating having to wait for it to reload just to have it crash again. Any solutions?.Version: 202011.1.9290

Events are unrealisticWhen I started playing the game, each event would last about a week and I was able to collect the reward at the end or at least rank fairly high in the leaderboard and get some keys and energy. However we are now only getting three days for HUGE event islands that have lots of obstacles that take up a lot of energy to get even 10% progress (and forget about the leaderboard tasks, which are even harder to complete now). I feel like the developers want people to spend money on buying energy/keys and making the events short is a way to force people into it because that’s pretty much the only way to complete the event. Sad to see them getting greedy when they’re already getting ad revenue. Very close to deleting the game..Version: 2021164.0.12451

Latest update keeps crashingI have wasted so much money on this game since downloading so its a shame that the latest update keeps crashing even when just doenloading when i open it!.Version: 202006.1.7513

SloooooowThis game potentially has the means to be very good, visually and longevity, also the fact you don’t have any annoying adverts pop up every 30 seconds!! The main aim of the game is to clear the island of obstacles, ie trees, rocks and build with your resources. But the major issue for me is the energy bar, they do not give enough! When you first log in after few hours you’ll have a full bar, but being confronted with large rocks and trees, two, three chops and gone! Game over, yes you can build resources, but there is nothing else to do. So the game has potential, but need ways of getting more energy to make you stay longer..Version: 202101.0.10629

Entertaining Money GrabThis is a farming game like a lot of others with a lot of in app purchases. My problem with this game is you are pretty much forced to purchase energy to participate in the recurring events. For instance a player like myself at a level 23 maxes at 78 energy points. One of the most recent events required users to gather items that were 80 points each and you had to have 4(?) of them to make one larger item and 10 of the larger items to advance to the next stage. You can find free energy scattered throughout the stages but not enough for the tasks. So you can make food for energy but you can’t exceed your max limit. You can watch ads for free energy but that is also limited to a certain number of available ads. I’m ok with waiting for my energy to refill on this type of game however the limit of energy is set way too low to accomplish much without buying way more! It’s like having a full tank of gas but running out before you leave the gas station. This is a very expensive “free to play” game!.Version: 2022152.0.16771

Please fix.I loved the game first levels easy as any other game get lots of energy as you go about the levels it’s harder and harder and the production times are ridiculous on some things. i’ve been enjoying the game spent some money to get energy in order to upgrade my workshops however in the past week a lot of the items i’ve made mind you i’ve taken days to do so turns out they are gone just like magic. First time I noticed was when I was producing bowls for the lion well i logon to the game and turns out i only had 1 left from 7 I already had made (no I did not exchange them not used it for anything else. Yesterday I had chopped some trees to get cinnamon it never collected the cinnamon so I just gave up on that festival thing. Now today I logon first time I do I noticed i’m a stake short to upgrade the stone workshop which I have been producing since 3 days or more ago i get that going and log off the game well when I come back to the game I only have 3 stakes left. please fix it i enjoy the game just dislike to log in and notice some of my things are missing..Version: 2022184.0.19736

It is terrible game, whoever designed it is clutteredI was so disappointed with this game. It has so many things happening extremely resources. They just want us to spend money on rubies. It is most cluttered game and when you achieve a task then it gives you absolutely. It is a cluttered game with no end to the tasks. the developers just want make money and they not interested in the gamers at all. there is no beginning or ending to the tasks. just more and more tasks and no resources. Gamers were still going into shops to buy these upgrade packs, but a cheaper expansion to a favourite game would take revenue from a competitor’s brand new, full price game. This did not stop new games being developed; indeed, it encouraged ongoing franchise development with refreshed full price evolving versions of games starting to appear. I do not want give it even ONE STAR. It is absolutely crap game..Version: 201910.1.5305

EnergyIt takes way to long to renew energy. Tasks to chop trees and break up rocks use up way to much energy! You can do 1 or 2 things by the time your energy is depleted. Too long of a waiting game..Version: 202017.1.10615

Can’t playI downloaded the new app version today and it won’t let me play. Each time I open it, it tells me something went wrong, and reloads. But the. It says the same thing, over and over..Version: 202010.0.8725

MehUse to be a good game, other than never enough storage space to get everything you need to upgrade and essential items almost impossible to get. Since the last update, the game no longer loads. Time to delete and find a new game.Version: 202010.0.8725

Awful and laggy!Wow. This game is useless. There was no adventure in this awful game. How could people possibly think that this is a good game? All that happens in it is LAGGING AND BEING THE WORST THING EVER. I saw it on an advert AND OH MY GOSH IT WAS SUCH A WASTE OF TIME. Yeah, rescuing people and improving your raft is fun, BUT THESE PEOPLE ARE ALREADY RESCUED! I seem to think that this awful game thinks we are not good enough to rescue the people on the ad WHICH TOTALLY OFFENDED ME! Some ads do not lie. THIS ONE DOES! Thank you to the games with ads THAT DO NOT LIE! If somebody is wanting to download a GOOD game that you need to rescue people, do NOT choose this one. I am writing this review in MY PJs and this game HAS NOT MADE MY MORNING AT ALL. IT TOTALLY OFFENDED MY MORNING! Do not choose this game it is the worst game ever that I have played in my life AND I HAVE BEEN ALIVE FOR EIGHT YEARS NOW! Please pretty please can you fix this horrific thing whatever it's supposed to be. Bye..Version: 2021060.1.11105

Not GoodHave just uninstalled the game for the third time. We can’t even get past the loading screen as it gets to about 80% loaded and then tells me I’m not connected to the internet, even though I am. Not a good game if you can’t even play it 😑.Version: 202013.0.9903

Money graberThis game is a money graber. You have to put a lots of money in it to obtain the keys, more energy and rewards. This sucks the fun out of this game. This does not make the game a rate 5 in my eyes. Not much engery to play with; makes levels harder to achieve. Have 2 goats why can't I have 2 roosters? Should add mini games to obtain more energy..Version: 2022204.1.22155

Lost its charmI loved this initially. I’m not a big gamer and I don’t spend money but by being clever and tactical you could have a lot of fun and it kept me engaged for months, but that all changed. Festivals got pointless: Shaman island was an endless stream of impossible tasks and clearly people were just buying everything they needed and finishing in record time. I gave up. Now Treasure island returns but only for 2 days 14 hours when last time we had 4 days plus. Then I look tonight on the leaderboard and people have finished the whole thing in 7 hours so they either cheat or spend a fortune buying energy and gems. Either way I’m outta here.....Version: 202014.0.10492

Frustrating to playLove the game but it’s so frustrating at how much power it takes to play the challenges. To get anywhere on the challenges you need to buy power and now the darn purchase page keeps popping up the minute you run out if power 3 times I had to cancel the purchase because it jumped in at the moment I touched the screen. I am just thankful I have my settings set to confirm any purchases or it would have gone through. Fed up with the constant purchase page popping up all the time. That is a personal choice and I don’t need it shoved into my face all the time…. As for the email options it would be nice if we could delete the message rather than having it sitting there all the time……...Version: 2021184.0.12838

Way too much waiting. Even for games like this.Games like this have a lot of waiting, I get that. But the amount of waiting required in relation to the energy you’re given is insane. You can wait for your energy bar to fully fill up and be able to do maybe one or two average sized actions. Then you’re empty again. So gotta wait an extra hour or so 🤷‍♀️. On top of that. Upgrades and events require an insane amount of items. Even level 1 items, the first that can be crafted, at the minimum require 2-4 minutes starting off. Buy you may need like 15x level two items in order to do the /first/ upgrade!! This in total could take about 2 hrs to craft them all (you’re locked to only three slots too), but these level 2 items may require 3-4 level 1 items to make. So in total could take several hours to just craft 1/3 of the needed items for an upgrade. This doesn’t even factor in the hours of waiting in order to get the energy in order to harvest the needed base items for crafting. It’s broken beyond belief and ever minute or so you’re asked to either level a rating or buy energy. Buy energy. Buy energy!!! That’s the game, that’s how it’s made. 👎.Version: 2022184.0.19736

Be careful with the adsI enjoyed this game and you can progress through the levels even without having to pay for gems, through perseverance. I do have a very big issue with the ads that come with free lives or gems. I have, on multiple occasions, seen the ad for King’s Throne: Game of Lust. This is a blatant age-inappropriate marketing when this game is listed for ages 12+. I have also seen other similar ads targeted to the older audience. Either this game needs to be listed with the right age category, or the developers need to seriously review the ads that the game features. This is dangerous for parents who unknowingly allow their children to be subjected to adult content, masked in an innocent enough game..Version: 202101.1.10636

Worth it in the end?This game started off fun and the visuals are a nice touch. However, the longer you start to play this the more you start to understand how much harder it gets. When you start to unlock upgrades and new buildings it becomes interesting until you realize how long it will take to gather/make the materials. You can forget about making any kind of progress in any of their events if you are also trying to finish the events as well as make progress on buildings and upgrades. The developers designed this game to capture your interest and slowly make you become more frustrated overtime. The only possible way to overcome this frustration would be to spend money on gems/energy/tools which is ridiculous but also genius. Sad to say that I’ll be uninstalling this game after wasting so much time on it. Hope the developers come to the realization that this game will start to die if they don’t make some changes. But they’ll probably comment something like “thanks for the suggestions we will be sure to pass it along to our team” and not make any changes. Even with the growing number of people making the same exact reviews. Hope people see these comments and realize they’ll be wasting their time unless they plan to pay..Version: 202102.0.10659

MehThis game will keep you amused for maybe 7-10 days when it’s all new and you can build up momentum. After then, everything slows down and you can’t possibly keep up with the tasks being set, events to participate in and upgrades necessary to accommodate all of these things you’re meant to do. You also can NEVER have the appropriate energy as it runs out so fast (like.. do 2 things and it’s gone). So the developers have amazing ideas and lovely graphics but no concept, it seems, or how to keep a gamer engaged fully. If they set tasks and events, great, but the energy and storage doesn’t reflect that so you can’t actually participate (without, I can only assume, spending a LOAD of money) So whilst I would be happy to support and probably spend a bit on this game, they’ve overshot it hugely. So, as a result, it’s boring and I lost interest very quickly..Version: 202014.0.10492

Would like to try itCan’t even load it to play it, keeps saying that it needs an internet connection and then loop reloads..Version: 202017.1.10615

Good idea, needs some changes.The idea of this game is great. It plays well, doesn’t crash and there are some interesting ideas. However, the constantly changing island every few days is way too much. You are fighting to finish and that to me takes away the pleasure in the game. Every island is the same work, requires so much energy you have to pay out to complete and quite honestly the whole thing is way too repetitive and feels like forcing you to pile money into the game. I’m all for paying for things but this game seems to want too much to proceed. I know they say you can make energy but you would never be able to make enough to complete an island adventure. I think this game forgets that most people cannot sit on a game all day. It’s a shame because the idea is good..Version: 2022190.0.20407

Was okay at firstThe game has some positives, like the graphics and the adventures but there are more negatives then positives. 1) the narratives - god, all I want to do is play. I don’t care about the story and it always pops up when I’m trying to move through the island. There should be a way to turn it off. 2) You have to spend money to get anywhere in this game. If you try and play for free it will take so long and you get bored quickly. You will never be top dog in the competitions if you don’t spend dollars. 3) You never have time to work on your home island to build up your reserves to trade for keys or clean up the island (as grass, trees etc keep growing on your island) etc. All your energy is spent usually on the adventures because you will get prizes with more energy so you can compete. 4) A lot of things take up more energy to clear then they should. Example grass can be 8 energy or 26 energy. 5) they have clans, but you can’t talk to anyone and you can’t help each other. I did spend more than I should have on this game, but no longer. I’m going back to my other game where I have more interactions with others and where we help each other through the game. Also, you can play for free and progress easily. So if I’m going to spend money, it will be with that game..Version: 2021210.0.13548

Game is Fun and awesome. Customer service is awful.I was having a great time with this game until the Christmas event. First it came in early and completely broken and I was wondering if it was even fixable but really the game just needed to update. It updated and got fixed and my event progress got reset as expected. Then i played through the event a second time and got quite far into star island before it got reset...again. Apparently there were more bugs that needed to be fixed so progress needed to be reset and thankfully the time got reset too. But the second play through i bought the smallest gem pack and collected some gems that i specifically used to buy energy so I could get stuff done quickly and progress in the Christmas event. Now i received 300 gems for my progress getting reset and was told that I would get my gems i spent also in the event time refunded back to me so id be officially at square one with compensation for having to do it again. But i never received my extra gems. I went to support and they repeated you got your gems in every way possible without actually helping me with the situation. I paid money but they really didn’t care about giving me compensation for that money that i paid which turned me off of the game almost immediately after. I really liked the game but I dont want to play it anymore because if I encounter a problem that only affects me directly I know I wont get the needed support..Version: 201910.1.5305

Deleting the gameUgh, I really wanted to play this game, I think I played it for about a month, but deleting now. The reason is simple - it’s really frustrating that in order to remove big items, that require a lot of energy, I actually have to accumulate that energy, instead of removing it in parts, like it’s done in a lot of other games of the same type. And it seems that developers are pushing you to pay money to get that energy, otherwise you can’t get resources required. Really frustrating annoying. And I don’t like to play games that don’t give me positive emotions..Version: 202017.1.10615

L’énergie insuffisanteJe trouve votre jeux très amusant et j’ai envie d’y jouer souvent mais je trouve qu’on manque trop rapidement d’énergie alors je voudrais vous conseiller sur comment vous pourriez faire par exemple vous pourriez baisser l’énergie des object à déplacer ou à cultiver et possiblement rajouter le fait de quand on fini une tâche de soit disant l’agriculture ou faire des roche aussi rajouter de l’énergie et de baiser le temps avant qu’ont aye de l’énergie donc à la place que ce soit 1 minute 30sec que ce soit par exemple 30sec ou 45, en plus ce serais extrêmement agréable et appréciable pour moi et comme ça je vais pouvoir jouer plus souvent à votre jeux J’espère que vous prendrez mon conseille😁.Version: 202014.0.10492

Wish I could give it 5 stars butI love the concept of this game and I enjoy it HOWEVER there’s just too many things to do at the same time , while I have to craft items in the same machine which takes me ages to create. Then the boat arrives way to fast. Should be once a day not every 2 hours. There’s just too many things to do, makes me feel like it will take me absolute ages to get anywhere in this game. Please change that. Please don’t require 10/20 items to upgrade stuff while it takes ages to craft the items, and then in addition to that, there’s million other things to upgrade, then the shaman then the boat. Change that!.Version: 2021060.1.11105

Impossible quests even with real moneyI started out loving this game…it’s exciting exploring the different islands…but then the timed quests started back to back with no time in between…a few of them are doable without spending money if you are willing to be on the game 24/7…most of them you will have to spend money on if you want any hopes of completing them… the amount of things they require you to do is ridiculous in proportion to the amount of energy you get free… I have went through 500 gems worth of energy so far with this one and am no way near completion… 50 gems gives you 500 energy to give you a better idea of how much energy it takes on these timed quests…I right now have 3 pits to fill in and a set of steps all of which need these special balls that look like rubber band balls that are made on the island…each one of these takes 2 flowers to make…you get 4 flower spots that take 2 hours to regenerate… so you can make 2 balls every 2 hours… now the steps need 6 so there is 6 hours just to fix the steps… and the pits need 3 or 4 each…it’s impossible… they are ridiculous and no longer fun… too many back to back quests with slim chances of completion… no time to work on your main island and arrange things or decorate it… and no time or resources left to work on the regular quests that are not timed…I will be deleting this….Version: 2021140.0.11857

Something wrongEvery time i open it since yesterday it keeps popping up the message oops something went wrong !!! can’t play it anymore.Version: 202010.0.8725

Was a great game but now. Oh dear!I have really been enjoying thia game for the past five months or so but now oh dear. An update was done about a week ago and have had nothing but problems with the game ever since. It crashes after 30 seconds. Te load and works for another 30 seconds and so it goes on I’ve contacted the support and the first time I was made to sound like I was imagining things. I was not impressed. They then replied again and admitted there was a problem with iOS platforms. It was suggested I needed to be patient. It could take 72 hours to sort out. Well some 168hours plus and nothing is sorted still. I’m not the only one encountering this problem. It really needs sorting as it’s so stressful. No longer a pleasant relaxing game..Version: 2021110.0.11384

Love this game BUT…This is without a doubt my favourite game and I play it all the time. I don’t mind occasionally buying gems or energy to progress but recently I think the developers have become greedy. The amount of energy you need to make things to get you through gates etc on the event islands has become too much and this does NOT make me spend more money, quite the opposite. Often I quickly realise that I’m not going to get to the end without spending a load and at that point I just give up. Come on developers, be reasonable otherwise you will end up making less money as I can’t believe I’m the only one who thinks like this….Version: 2022104.0.14408

Valley girlWhile I have been so happy with the game and do get sucked into spending money, it’s the ongoing issues when the game is updated and yes my device is updated in fact I can’t even sent a message for support because it crashes, it’s a game that relaxes you at the end of a long day but since the past 2 updates I can’t play it which seems to be so common with other games from the same company so unless it’s fixed and I can play I’m done with these companies that are so bad at making communication with us or realise they are losing people’s respect for their creations..Version: 202007.0.7639

Slow in goingOk first off the concept is remarkable in it's communications between characters. Very cute. The animations are also pretty cute. I like being able to go between islands freely. I don't really bother with the ”special” games as they end well before I can get anything done. With that being said, it's nearly impossible to get up enough energy to do anything. I play about 5 minutes at a time and run out of energy quicker than that. I have a lot of open tasks, about 10 or 12 at a time, because you can't get enough energy stocked up to do anything but cut one tree or hit a rock a couple of times. And then you can't do anything for another hour at least. So this game is easy to forget because the play time is low. I was hoping for the charge time to get better as I played longer but nothing has changed. So I did give it 3 stars for cuteness, interaction and concept but unless things change I may delete soon. But would be willing to raise star level if the charge problem we're corrected. I can't recommend and this time..Version: 202011.1.9290

Game was amazing until updateSince. Yesterday’s update the game crashes upon opening.Version: 202010.0.8725

Gets boring after a dayRead the reviews but thought I’d give it a try. Agree with ALL the reviews that say it takes way to long for energy to refill. You get one bit of energy every 4 - 5 minutes... but if something takes 45 energy to chop down it makes for very slow and boring progress. I read all the makers standard reply’s and yes you can get extra energy from a few bits on the island, but the further you get into it, the fewer and farther between these become and it’s never enough. After getting salt from a few star fish, these disappeared and never got any from where it said you could find salt, so couldn’t cook anything. The storage situation was annoying as well. Storage maxed out so couldn’t pick up any production bits, which meant I couldn’t put anything else in production queue, which would have freed up storage! Found myself trapped in a frustrating circle!! All in all the game got deleted because it just took to long to do anything and I got bored of playing after 24 hours. Maybe, rather than just posting your usual standard reply about finding energy around the island, you should actually take on board peoples suggestions and frustrations and make energy refresh more quickly......Version: 202017.1.10615

Completed Polar Island but was forced to start again !!!Loved the game until the festive islands were introduced. Polar Island still needs more work. I had completed all the quests (the last one where I needed 200 stars to cut down the Christmas tree. For some strange reason when I reopened the app to play the game from where I left off, it said there was an error. This ‘error’ has taken me all the way back to before completing the quests in Polar Island. Now I have to start all over again. Is something wrong at the back end of the game? Not very impressed with this and I really hope it is addressed soon. Please can the developers look into fixing this issue? Perhaps more testing can be done before releasing a new aspect of the game to the public? Other than that, the game has been great so far!.Version: 201910.1.5305

This game constantly crashesI’ve downloaded and deleted this game multiple times. It’s fun but it constantly crashes so gets frustrating pretty quick..Version: 202009.3.8528

This game is a time wasterThis game is a big waste of time, the energy is always too low to play, in order to get more you cook, eat and forage. The energy needed to complete tasks far outweighs the recharge and energy level increases. Gathering resources is hard because you need to limit to the storage capacity or upgrade which uses resources you make but you need heaps and if your storage is full then you can’t collect or make unless you dump resources. Gathering more requires energy, making it a cycle of wasted time. The game glitches. One example is a task required 5 feathers, I collected 10 and it would not recognise them. Frustrated with yet another attempt to extort money from players, it’s now deleted..Version: 202104.1.10960

Money VampireThe only way to advance in this game (without it taking a full week to level up or be on constantly) is to spend a significant amount of money on the game. The game itself, along with storyline are really good. But, as much time and effort made to level up; max energy should be significantly higher. It’s nearly impossible to make decent progress on the adventure islands, and the prizes are no where close to as valuable as the resources and energy you spend on it. The most recent adventure, wizard island for example: 35 energy to get one particle of emerald dust is absolutely ridiculous. 42 energy for the purple flowers..3 of each to make ONE wand. 231 energy use required per wand, needing multiple wands to advance. Not to mention having to clear the paths using energy also….At level 15 you max energy is 75. The concept and stories are good like I said but the game definitely needs a major rework for energy max and usage. Impossible to do anything without spending a significant amount of money, or never setting your device down. Currently waiting 25 minutes for food so that I have enough energy to break down a rock on the new adventure giant island……..Version: 2022104.0.14408

Great game- rude support staff!?I would give this game more stars but the rudeness of the support staff members are outrageous if the game has a glitch or a bug in an event island it’s automatically your fault not there’s or the game but yours for example on explorers island I’m supposed to collect 15 presents I have collected 14 now but the glitch is making it only count 10 I have been told that I have to collect only the orange with green bow presents but I only can count 12 in the game so how am I supposed to get 15 to complete a task if there are only 12??? Also the same with the thorns I’m supposed to chop the green thorns to collect the task but it allowed the purple one to complete the task the staff member is refusing to help me so it’s now caused me to fail this island in completing it really not happy they don’t like cheating but allows there games to cheat! Other than that the main game has plenty to do.Version: 2021154.0.12209

Was great now notThrough fb groups we have found out it’s not fair. Some players get things like 200 gold bars and some get 2000, the merchants/shaman orders and payment/rewards e.g chicken feed, energy a key. Some people get up to 200 energy some 60ish. The mini island games every few days are taking soooo much energy, gold tools now. My last order with the merchant cost me far more in resources, stools, sackcloth beams and what not to anything in return like energy from 120 to 60. For what it takes to make them it costs you so much more than what you get. Things you have made get taken. I made 3 tambourines which probably takes you 8/10 hours from start to finish. Woke up in the morning to find one had vanished. Had a few things vanish. Lots of other players have noticed this to. The developers are now just seeing £$€ signs and want you to pay over the odds to get anywhere now. Report anything to them about missing things they say your lying 🤥 lots of other players will say the same. Check out the unofficial page on fb because the official one removes anything we say negative about the game..Version: 2022122.0.15263

Misleading and offensive adsNot sure why in their ads they show the wife getting a positive pregnancy test and then the husband kicking out the wife. Then showing building a raft and collecting things. I thought this was called family island…sure isn’t my idea of how how families work. Shame on the app developers for using these types of ads. BTW - I’ve played previously and there is no rafts or anything and it gets boring fast because of constantly waiting for energy..Version: 2021144.0.12000

An ok waste of timeI’ve been playing this game for a while now, just because I needed something to occupy myself in short spurts. After all this time, I’m honestly not sure why I keep playing. As the game advances it becomes almost unplayable because the amount of energy you get VS how much energy it takes to do anything means you get to click maybe one or two things and then there is nothing to do for hours. On top of that, I’m starting to be convinced there is something scammy going on with the ads. When on my iPad (which is needed since everything is so so tiny on the phone). You get opportunities to watch an ad and get some energy or gems, but pretty much every time you get through the ad when it comes time for your reward, the game crashes. This means you watch 3-4 full ads before one doesn’t crash, meaning they are making you actually watch way more than they are rewarding you for. Or if you click the X to leave the ad and it takes you to the App Store, when you go back to the game, it restarts and no reward. Maybe the game devs don’t know or don’t care but this is a major problem since playing the game for me has basically become just 15 minutes of commercials and I get to chop down one tree. The art is cute and the game could be sort of fun if it was more playable. The point of a game is to be able to play it, but there isn’t much to do..Version: 202017.1.10615

Waste of timeIn a world the developers live in this is an exciting game. In reality it’s a waste of time. 1) they don’t fulfill the actual rewards it’s based on their rules where you have to play 24/7 to get the big rewards. (so unless you’re in with the developers you get nothing) 2) the energy system is the weirdest and most exhausting part of the game you upgrade a house to get a few more energy bars. Most other games with energy used increases upon leveling up (being a high level with 60 energy because you didn’t level the house up 🧐🙃) 3) they don’t want their customer support team bothered with feedback they want you to join their Facebook group and when you provide feedback they delete it so no one can see it 😂.Version: 2021100.0.11288

Game keep restartingGame won’t start. It appears to start for a quick second then you get the message “oops something went wrong” click ok and restarts....never ending loop. Game worked fine up until I was forced to update today and now won’t work..Version: 202010.0.8725

Paid for extra energy and it was goneI paid 21.99 for extra energy and diamonds woke up to over 2000 or more of my energy gone I know I wasn’t playing the game as I was at work. Great game but money down the drain..Version: 2022206.1.22525

Don’t DownloadTo start, I’ve been playing over a year and they still haven’t even completed the main island. Too busy with repeated “events” to make you pay money. Impossible to win unless you play all day every day and pay for extra energy. Their little “tips and tricks” for extra energy gives you 5-10 extra sometimes. I’m level 42 and max energy hold is 99. In the event right now, for 2 flowers costs 60 energy, you need 25 for one single bit of a task, including 65 energy per cobweb thing which you need 5 of per little task. I’ve spent $30+ on this event alone and its over in 5 hours and unless I drop at least as much, it’s impossible to finish. And what’s my reward for 4th place? 250 energy, 1 key and experience. 250 doesn’t even cover 5 of those flowers, and I’ve had to pick at least 60 by now, not including all of the other ridiculously high energy grabs. And playing just the home island isn’t a fun option because they have not finished it. This is getting absolutely RIDICULOUS. Ive spent probably 15,000+ energy on this one event and I get one key and 250 energy back for 4th place. I could have bought a key and 1500 energy for a few bucks. The events arent even fun anymore cause they’re all the same islands and events over and over. Don’t download..Version: 2022132.0.15694

BadI did not like this app because it told me different stuff the add then the actual game and it was extremely disappointing.Version: 2021080.0.11182

Bad connectionI’ve seen really good reviews and even ads that made me get the game but when I tried to go onto the game it would just crash and take me back to my home page. I don’t know if this is my internet even though the wifi’s great or if it’s just the game or my phone but that’s just my experience with the app. I would love to try out this game if I could though!.Version: 202101.2.10643

IT IS SOOO HARD TO PROGRESS!!!!It’s a good game but you really struggle to make much progress. Everything is just so hard!!! I’ve just spent the past week making and collecting things to make the mixer in order to fulfill a request from the Sharman. This morning I thought I’d finished the mixer and went into it to make something for the Sharmans order only to discover I need to keep building/collecting things for the mixer - I can’t use it yet!!! Aaaaarrrrggh This situation is representative of the level of difficulty. To top it off I need energy and lots of it to collect these items and when the merchant comes in he offers energy but only if I give him stuff I’ve collected for projects like the mixer!! How are you supposed to get anywhere???????? I know I can get energy from totems, watching ads and feeding family ect but it’s only a tiny amount t compared to what’s needed. Chopping down a nice big tree to make boards, resin ect you will need around 140 energy which in most cases is near impossible to get seen as how the energy bar only goes up to 80 or something!! Think I’ll delete the game and find one a bit easier.Version: 202015.1.10526

Good ideaEnergy too slow to recharge and it makes the whole game hard to play and i enjoyable. Big drive to spend money to get energy/gems to keep playing, which I understand, but it makes it hard to play without spending, so if you don’t want to you get to a certain level and its hard to progress (or very slow going). So many challenges going on that require the same resources that you can’t keep up with because of the lack of energy…it becomes monotonous. Good idea but needs work..Version: 2022142.0.16172

Newer updates are super buggyI’ve been playing family island for a while now and I have issues with how many items it takes to perform upgrades and how long it takes to make items, it’s really quite frustrating but I enjoy the game so I persevere. But lately the game is almost unplayable it just crashes every couple of minutes and force closes. If you can get passed the frustration of waiting and working hard to progress in the game, you’re thwarted by the fact it’s currently not playable. I hope you guys manage to fix it ASAP because otherwise I’m going to have to delete and find something else to play 😥..Version: 2021100.0.11288

Updated, still Engaging but frustratingUpdate 3/21: game play is expensive. I at level 23 and game play cost lots of energy and you only gain 78 depending on your “house” upgrade. I have one are that I need to investigate but can’t get past large rock that needs 169 in energy. I can’t even use what energy I have to knock it down each time I am awarded energy. Other farming games have this option. I have spent actual money playing this game, but I have never been able to complete a special island due to the expensive energy. Occasionally you get to watch videos for energy but it’s never enough to get 169 you can’t do anything. I’m not spending any more money for energy. It’s just not how I want to spend my fun money. I will give this game a few more days, but as others have complained, I too will be deleting the game. If you can’t progress, the game isn’t fun. The game is engaging but needs more fun. There should be a way to use energy for all items. Example: cutting a tree needs 154 energy but all I have is 54. I should be able to use my 54 energy for that tree. I still would need 100 energy to finish the job. It makes me want to come back and play this game. I don’t spend money on games to buy energy or rubies. So progress through the game is slow and basically not much fun..Version: 202104.1.10960

Be Careful!!I had a few minor issues playing the game, it’s a little glitchy it’s very easy to click on things that you’re not trying to select and quickly use your energy. Besides that I enjoyed the game, but here’s the really bad part and my warning, the game started to offer these gem pack and energy bundles for in game purchases. From time to time I would purchase one, the last time I purchased one I noticed my card was double charged, the second being a totally different option. This second option was a gem pack with saws, I didn’t make a mistake and click on anything and to make it worse nor did I receive any of these items within the game. This made me check my account and I noticed multiple gem pack with saws purchases that I never made nor did I receive within the game and believe me if you’ve played the game long enough you’ll remember and know if you’ve purchased multiple saw packs because you constantly need them!! I reported a claim for a refund and was denied so my warning is to be careful if you decide to make in game purchases, check to make sure if you’re being charged correctly. I deleted the game and removed the card from my account, really disappointed with all of this!!!.Version: 202005.1.6898

Would love if it . . .Didn’t crash every two minutes. Please fix before I delete it. It looks like the kind of game I’d really enjoy..Version: 2021154.0.12209

I’m addicted but wish I wasn’tI’ve been playing this game for over a year!!!!!! It’s so addicting because you are curious as to what’s next and constantly waiting to reach that goal of completing something. I wish I can just turn it off sometimes but I haven’t found a game like this anywhere…..and trust me I looked. The game has cute and fun stories that keep you wondering what’s happening next but the downside is that 1/4 of the time you can actually finish those quests….which becomes annoying if you spent 3-4 days trying to complete a story and spent $20 too. If you don’t spend money on these quests you will not finish them, trust me I know. I’ve been at the end of quests and haven’t been able to make the items in time and lost out. It’s frustrating. I give this game 3 stars because it is fun….but you often don’t get the prize. I understand that the game needs to make money and nothing is free but can’t you make these quests complete-able ever? I used to be able to get the prize at least 2 out of 3 times now I can barely get any and I’m at level 50!! If this were to change I’d play the game more but now I’m taking a break from quests and just focusing on the main story. Hopeless.Version: 2022190.0.20407

$$ hungry gameThis game is really fun I loved it!! But by level 20 and Over $40 of my real money buying energy and rubies I notice little things like items I’ve made not being accounted for. Or when I use my energy to gather items it looks like I’m getting the items but when I go to use them, they are gone! It takes more energy then you can earn by waiting to gather most items. So you have to gather small items to make meals for energy. When your energy if full you can eat the meals to get extra energy after the bar if full to then get bigger items or if your like me you buy the items with real $ to build your village. Then I also discovered that you have to build the same thing up several times before you can even use it. For instance the light house and other things are built in stages you think by gathering and making supplies then putting then towards a building it would finish it but nope that’s stage one then for the same building you have to gather lots more supplies and make items to build stage 2 of the same building. So by the time you’re missing items you were supposed to receive and missing items you build it’s gets frustrating oh also some times your energy won’t ever fill up all the way even after 8 or so hours! So... If you put real $ into this game you’ll find it’s a big ripoff since so much stuff goes missing!.Version: 202014.0.10492

Only 3 stars for nowI really like this game. But has recently has not let me into the game. By saying “something went wrong”.Version: 202103.1.10816

It made me restart the gameI was really enjoying the game and made it to level 35 and then it glitched and wouldn’t let me load the game. I re downloaded it and it didn’t save any of my progress and made me restart. Customer service hasn’t replied and I’m very frustrated. Not sure if I will keep playing.Version: 2021142.0.11922

Good gameIt’s a good game but since the last update keep crashing. Fix it..Version: 202010.0.8725

Too expensive!!!I’ve been playing this game for over 2 years, it used to be a fab game and really enjoyable. There has been no new permanent islands for months now, the special events islands are often repeated and are made more difficult each time they are re-introduced. The only way to finish these event islands is to spend (a lot of) money. I am level 65 so have the high energy foods unlocked but even using these I find it impossible to complete event islands unless I spend real money. I have spent lots of money on this game so far, but it seems to be getting more greedy with each event. I understand developers need to make money but it is just getting too expensive especially when some of the events just keep getting repeated..Version: 2022200.0.21425

Had to deleteThis game has been a firm favourite of mine for 2 years now. I’ve played religiously! I’m gutted I’ve had to delete the game. It’s way to expensive to play, I get zero enjoyment from it since the developers decided to become greedy ganits. Max energy is 137 and most obstacles you have to clear are 30-50+ energy so basically you can make two moves every hour which in turn means you CAN NOT complete an island or a task without spending real money. Salt is hard to come but so you can’t even cook for energy now never mind being able to get clay to make bowls to cook with. Things that don’t require bowls require ingredients that take ages to generate. Keys and gold tools are literally like gold dust. You used to get plenty of energy and gems as you played along…. Not anymore. They’ve now put obstacles in front of energy boxes that require gold tools which you don’t have as you can’t win them, find them or give enough to the merchant to get a gold key. They have an island with a key maker that you have to have gold dust for….. again these are in chests locked behind obstacles that need gold tools….. kinda defeats the point really. So unless you are rolling in it and have £100+ to drop on this game, I would t download it..Version: 2022176.1.19009

Love the gameI have been playing for a while now and am on level 42 but I find that there are very long periods of time where there is absolutely nothing to do. I need to get the level 43 to open a new area but getting the stars in virtually impossible. I have made every item numerous times and completed all the quests but I am now stuck. I have filled up all my spaces with items but have nothing to use them on to get stars. I have spent literally hundreds of dollars and am not just disappointed and bored. When is the next upgrade or next level going to open up? Please do something as I am losing interest in this game now. Thanks.Version: 202017.1.10615

Great concept but .....I love this game and the whole idea of it but it is frustratingly slow after the first few days! As others have said you use your energy in a couple of minutes and then nothing to do for ages as you need lots of energy for all the tasks. Also cannot replenish salt quickly enough to make more food for energy. Energy needs to fill up more quickly or have a much bigger limit, it only goes up by very few each level! PLEASE could we have REWARDS for logging in each day like other games do. I know there are parcels to collect but there need to be more rewards and incentives and more sustainable energy. I will probably be fed up of this soon and it’s such a shame!.Version: 202014.0.10492

Good game but not enough energyThis is a good game the only downfall is the amount of energy you need to complete the tasks to get further through the levels, which makes it super hard to go on especially in the mini games that last a few days. You need several items to complete one small task but this uses lots of energy (for example my energy bar is 96 but one item is 87 energy) so unless you pay ££ for more energy you’ll be waiting hours for your energy bar to refill so you can move on. Think I’m just going to delete the game as it’s getting annoying. Maybe bigger energy rewards would make it worth while..Version: 2022206.1.22525

Greed took overIt was an awesome game, but now it’s all about the money. It costs 50$ just to play a 2 day game. This game is beyond most people now. You should play to the mass, not just the rich.Version: 2022204.1.22155

Slow grind..I’ve been playing this game for ages now and I love it. It’s cute and it’s addictive! The artwork is great and same with the concept. But.. The grind is so slow? You got so little energy to do anything with. And by the time I finally get all the resources to upgrade a building, I need to start again because it takes so long to actually upgrade that the next upgrade is waiting! And then you have to decide whether you do the special events that pop up every four days or do you focus on trying to upgrade your island? It’s getting to be a bit much, now that I’ve levelled up a bit, so I might take a little break from it, sorry! 😔.Version: 2021192.0.13007

Enjoyable but slowLove the concept of the game, it find it so hard to get everything you need to move on. I have played for a few months and found I have had to buy rubies to complete each event. Not enough time is given for the events to consider all levels of players. Also lack of storage is an issue, if you could store a substantial amount of items it would make things easier to prepare for events, but it’s hard to get the items you need as you can’t store enough. It takes so long to do things and gather items needed, if you could have more than one machine that would be helpful, but often you need to use the machine to make several items needed and it’s just so hard. I have spent a fortune on the game and feel I have not progressed much after several months of playing, I am deleting the game unfortunately, which is a shame as I loved it, but I like to feel I am progressing which I’m not.Version: 2021060.1.11105

Time consuming with little rewardI really like the concept of this game, but too time consuming for little progress. I have been playing this game for a couple of weeks now and find I am putting a lot of time into it with little reward. Each building takes so long to construct, once you have constructed it you have to upgrade it you it. All this takes a lot of energy sucking resources, energy that is far less than the game needs. Very slow going. To top that off, trying to clear and move forward in one island is difficult, then every cou0le of days a new adventure begins, i was lucky to finish one, but the others have been extremely difficult. I had 50 points to go to finish the quests and I still needed 18 axes (1440 flowers)to get those 18 axes, impossible to complete flowers every 2 hours, energy needed for rocks with little reward. I.Version: 2021190.0.12921

Unfair practices and gets very expensive to complete tasksI absolutely loved this game, especially during lockdown, when they were in the early days. It was stress relieving and fun. I could complete tasks and enjoyed the storylines. Now, I can’t complete a single event, let alone finish in the top 1-3. And I spend ££. There are small things in the game to insure you NEED to spend. I am telling my experience here since they do not approve negative (yet honest) comments on their Facebook page. And I am frustrated. It all feels very dishonest and unfair to their players. Yes, It has been my choice to spend. Yes, it’s only a game. Taking a break…maybe I’ll try something new for a bit..Version: 2022152.0.16771

So little advancement for a lot of workI have almost thrown the towel in a few times due to the fact that I don’t seem to get anywhere. I have spent money thinking that would make a difference & it does for a very short time, I thought I had finally finished the mixer then the game is asking for another lot of improvements before I can use it - I have practically given up on the lighthouse. I can play for only a few minutes before running out of energy/options & the only way to go forward is to spend more money!! I have decided NO MORE MONEY, if I continue to play it will be only for those few minutes before shutting down and switching over to a different more satisfying game. I really did enjoy Family Island when the game moved forward, not when stuck in a circular hell of making things for a project only to have to sell them to the merchant to get more energy to continue to make things for a project. Come on developers listen to what the players are saying- I am not the only one frustrated by these issues..Version: 202102.0.10659

More money than funI like this game and would give it 5 stars if: A) you didn’t have to pay to progress and B) your progress wasn’t reversed and only able to be restored to what you had previously completed by paying…. I get that they need to make money, but I’d much rather pay for a full version of the game upfront-or even a monthly $2.99 subscription or something then have to spend money every time I need a key or tool. It’s frustrating that obstacles appear where you have already taken a lot of time to clear and arrange your space. Then, on top of that, these obstacles can only be removed with things you have to buy. So every few days giant logs and things appear in the open space and I have to buy a key to open a chest that the golden saws or whatever may or may not even be in there. These are not things you can find any other way in the game. So when the objects you need aren’t in the chest, you just have to repeat the process of paying until it randomly gives you what you’re looking for. Once you progress that should be it. Not right to backtrack you and charge for it. I won’t be spending anymore money on this game and would recommend others do not either as it’s just disappointing. Fees like we’re being taken advantage of..Version: 2021154.0.12209

Needs some workDon’t bother playing I’m sad I wasted so much time and effort on this game figures the first time I leave a good review on a game and it then decides to crash every single time I try to play I’ve only been playing for maybe a week and I do see some things that could use a bit of fixing but otherwise I’m addicted to this game -game crashing during ads This is the biggest one I’ve experienced recently I play a lot so I use energy like crazy and rely on the pop ups for 20 energy for watching an ad -not enough items I feel like there aren’t very many items you can buy in game (using game currency) to help level up while also doing the tasks -too many tasks at one time I’ve got at least 7-8 tasks that all need similar items sadly I use those items for the deliveries and competitions as well -resources cost way too much energy I get why they cost energy obviously but say for stone I find a large Boulder and it takes 79 energy ok easy enough done but now I have to get a smaller Boulder in the same place for 33 energy then again at 15 Honestly if the game didn’t crash during ads, had more store items, less tasks at one time, and made it so you only had to go through the resources once I’d have no complaints but I enjoy this game but it has its downsides it won’t stop me from playing but it could be better!.Version: 2021152.0.12131

Needs your moneyThis is a fun addictive game that gets you in. As you progress you discover you can’t finish any of the challenges without spending money. I on occasion have spent a small amount but there have been a number of times I have been charged without purchasing, and other times when I have actually purchased a ‘special’ buy that supposedly had bonuses, I was charged more than the advertised price. About half the time when I disputed the transaction, I was not refunded. The last time this happened the amount charged was more than double that was advertised. I am yet to be refunded the difference. The “help” section auto prompt questions are no help.

Good gameI agree with the other person who left a review I get there is other places to get things and find stuff but the keys aren’t enough and I don’t like filling the orders because I need the stuff in order to make my storage go up. It takes to much to do anything honestly and I find myself asking why are u still playing this game? I like the game but at the same time it takes so much just to be able to build my island i under there needs to be some difficulty in order for it to be a game and have some challenging points but every time I open the app to start playing I stop like 10 mins later with no more room to store stuff and a lot of task to complete. I can’t complete most task due to some stuff being on the other side of the island or I don’t have keys. I wish there was a shop where u could make keys and other tools with the gold or gems u dig out of the rocks. But other wise it’s still good cuz im always playing on it or making stuff to come back later to make more to upgrade one thing for 10 more things to show up lol smh.Version: 2022114.0.14880

Clear the developers have not listened to feedbackFirstly it is a good game but it has a major flaw. The balance between energy needed to play and energy earned is severely damaged. I am only level 9 and I have had to give up progressing on any of the “main” storyline as I need all my energy if I am to have any hope of completing an adventure event (which I never can). All reviews have been saying that energy cost is too high, and earning is too low yet it is clear the developers have done nothing to change it. Seems to me they only care about roping in new players and don’t see a need to maintain players if they won’t listen to the very clear player feedback.Version: 2022140.0.15993

Needs some workThis game is fun to play, but it’s ridiculous how much it takes to complete a task, or how much it takes to make something or update something. Sometimes it’s impossible. Especially the events. You give us 2-3 days to explore this new island and complete tasks that need too much to complete. Also the time it takes to make something is outrageous. And it’s not easy getting energy unless you constantly buy more. I enjoy playing this game. But honestly I don’t see myself playing it much longer. Takes days of getting energy and making stuff to just update my house or a workshop. And don’t even get me started on the storage!! I’m constantly having to get rid of items so I can have more storage! And updating storage is even worse!! And please don’t respond to me of ways to earn energy, like through the bathroom, shower, treasure boxes, etc. we all know about them. But they still don’t give enough energy to cut down more than one small tree!! You have a good game here, just need to lower the amount of stuff it takes to make/update an item!! Or it cost 158 energy to cut down a tree and the tree only give you 3 pieces of wood!! When I need 40 pieces of wood to make 20 boards to update my house!! Smdh.Version: 2022124.1.15439

UndecidedAt times I love this game bc it’s exciting and has the adventure islands that are so much fun. I reached the top level of 58 a couple of weeks ago and was kinda ok with it since I could still do trades with the merchant and the shaman plus adventure islands. No new tasks have been added at my level…if they have then I haven’t seen them. Or they are unobtainable bc of no palm trees. I’ve noticed in the last week that my rewards have been taken away. My bathroom and shower that I upgraded to get energy levels have been downgraded on energy by almost half. Also, the rewards from the merchant were cut in half…so even though I get the smileys for next level they do not help me at this point so I feel like I’m losing out on the game all they way around. I’ve spent money but I’m to the point that I feel like the rewards aren’t necessarily worth it. The graphics, storyline, and etc are good but I feel like I’m getting the wrong end of the deal with things being taken away after I worked and spent time to accomplish the tasks..Version: 2021222.1.14070

Game stopped working with the last updateHi; The game stopped working with the last update, basically brings an error message, as as soon as you click, restarts the game and the same error message comes, and this is a loop. :(.Version: 202010.0.8725

Don’t play unless you want to spend money.I’ve been playing this game for a while now and as much as I enjoy pottering around, filling sharman orders and boat orders the events require a lot of effort, they don’t give enough time for you to finish the event without spending money, yes I understand that the developers need to make money and this is their job but the cash required eg. $50 per event is extortionate, if you wanted to just play for a couple hours a day then just forget it, you will not win or even complete an event ever unless they change the format. Eventually this will probably go the same way paradise bay went and just finish as people are leaving the game in droves due to how expensive it is..Version: 2022114.0.14880

Would be five stars if it wasn’t so buggy and expensiveThis game would be great if it was made with user experience in mind instead of profits. The events are impossible to finish without spending large amounts of real world money, even if you spend literally all day with it open. The events end up just being extremely frustrating. They also reuse island formats and just change the names, which is so boring. They run several events at once so you really don’t have a hope of finishing, even if you’re willing to fork out tons of actual cash. Then come the bugs. It is SO buggy, and customer service is non-existent. Do not buy this game, save yourself a headache and get stardew valley instead..Version: 2022172.1.18706

Was fun, now crashingI played this game all the time for the past year or more. Not sure what is going on now but it keeps crashing or saying “oops something went wrong” :( I keep checking for an update to fix the bug… Help!!.Version: 2021154.0.12209

FrustratedI love this game but cant seem to play it on my ipad, i can play it on my samsung devices tho. Iv deleted and reinstalled multiple times but no luck.Version: 202104.0.10905

Love the game, too hard to complete without $$I absolutely love the game but it’s getting harder and harder to play without out having to outlay $$ to play. The constant events are too many, and too difficult to complete without paying for energy or rubies. Gold tools needed to play the events are harder to get. I used to get a few for each chest opened, now I’m lucky to get one. When I first started there were no pop ups, now there’s several to offer items to purchase with $$. Annoying when you miss getting the adverts for energy cos of all the pop ups getting in the way. To the developer response: you have completely missed the point of my review. There’s no technical issue with game play it’s the cost which is making it harder to play. For example the elephant that fills up so you can buy energy was affordable at around $5.99 it is now $22. I suspect if you make everything cheaper people will spend money. It’s a game and I like many others who have talked on FB won’t pay more than $1 - $10 max especially when the rewards are so little..Version: 2022142.0.16172

Awful unless you spend lots of real moneyThis game is obviously built to get players to spend money. You need energy to do absolutely everything and you only get a tiny bit for free. As you move through the levels, you need more and more energy to achieve even the most basic tasks, which is impossible to get. The issue is that you need energy to make energy, which is completely counterproductive. For example, to make food (which gives you small amounts of energy) you need certain items which cost energy to get, so you can’t make deciding progress. The free energy that accumulates has a low maximum level that only allows for approx 1-2 mins of play time. Even if you buy energy with really money, the game is designed to stop you progressing as you can’t build on that amount by making food, it won’t let you if you are over the maximum level. There are never-ending missions to go on - all of which need tons of energy. When you first go to the mission islands, they reel you in with free energy, but as you progress through the mission the energy runs out really fast. Then, when you get deeper into the mission, the free energy gifts are significantly reduced, so you can’t complete all the tasks unless you buy energy. I’ve stuck with this game for so long and tried to find ways to enjoy it as the game could be fun if the creators wanted it to be, but it’s set up to make you fail or spend money, which isn’t fun, so I’m now deleting it..Version: 2021222.1.14070

Good game, needs improvementThis could be such a good game! There are a few things that need addressing, energy vs quests is one of them. Unless you spend actual money, there is no way of finishing the tasks. The amount of items to get before you can finish a task in some of the quests is ridiculous, and most of the time end up not even competing half of the quest, waiting for the energy to be refilled again. Ads used to be available and it was a good way of getting diamonds and energy, but hasn’t worked for months. I enjoyed playing the game in lockdown, now I just find it frustrating. This has been said before, and no improvement has been made, I guess developers are more interested in reaching our pockets! Hey, money moves the world after all! 3 out of five..Version: 2021200.0.13187

Falls flatI started up this game and loved it, I spent real money on it because it was so addictive and fun but there are golden tools you need to remove tree stumps and other things which you cannot buy and are hard to collect and you clear an area but then a tree will grow and you end up with stumps everywhere that you can’t get rid of which is so disappointing considering the rest of the game is really fun! I just don’t want to spend more money on a game and end up re-doing everything to clear an area, especially when you can’t buy the tools to clear it and some things take LOTS of energy to clear in the first place when you only get a certain limit (which is also based on your level and house upgrades). Sorry just falls flat even when you spend money on it..Version: 202009.3.8528

I love this game, but there are so many problems!First off, the WAITING. I understand why you do this, but why do I have to wait a FULL HOUR to finish a brick!? I know that you do this to have people keep playing the game, but it takes so long to finish one thing! And I think one of the tasks requires 15 BRICKS! The time should honestly be 1/2 or even 1/4 of the actual wait time! Even with the string it gets annoying! (And I can’t be the only one that thinks the rope and the string is required too much. Plus, even though the time decreases if you upgrade the workshop, the lowest level workshop still takes too much time). The fact that you can’t cancel your first crafting item and that there are only 3 slots is also annoying. Not to mention, the storage is also too limiting. Like, I have 490 storage, which seems like a lot, but I ALWAYS find myself getting rid of materials not to get XP, but to HAVE ROOM. And that is also bad, because I often find myself getting rid of grass, which I know I’ll likely need 2 minutes later. Those gold tools are another issue. The keys are way too hard to get, and should be way more frequent. I also think that a key should cost 10 rubies instead of 30. And the events are too short. The reason I give this game 3 stars is because I always find myself coming back. That is a good sign. If these problems were fixed, it would make for a great game. Edit: Energy is also too low. Should take 1 minute to get 1 energy instead of 2..Version: 2021200.0.13187

Similar games are betterDon’t let the ads fool you, there is never a part where you collect stuff to build a raft. I hate it when apps show things in ads that aren’t actually part of the game. It takes way too long to build up energy. played it once before deleting it. If you’re looking for something similar but better try hay day..Version: 2021130.0.11629

Way too many energy wastedI’m here for the same reason everyone else is complaining about this game , first of all we are spending money on items that cost more money than what they are charging, like when you purchase them they tend to go up and up , from 2.99 to 9.99 each time you purchase them!! I’ve asked for a refund for items I didn’t authorized but they didn’t refund my money back to my account, I was told to just play the game without buying any thing I’ve been stuck on the same level now I updated my items and now it’s telling me to upgrade to a higher level now that’s costing me more energy and rubies!!! They need to fix this problem cause they are charging all of us to play the game!!!! Tired customer, plus each time you run out of energy you have to keep buying it it’s really costly and it’s not right because you should not have to pay more money each time the piggy bank gets full , all the energy goes in it and if you don’t pay it it leaves and the order goes away as well !!! Developer stop saying you guy’s know how we feel and do something about this issue people are having, the only thing you’re saying is blah blah follow us on FB to get your game more review.Version: 2022114.0.14880

Don’t botherWould give it zero if possible... tried twice to get the game. It would download, but would not open. Message said that I had to be connected to the internet, which I obviously was if I could get the the App Store!!!.Version: 2022112.0.14719

Keeps crashingKeeps crashing after latest update.... “oops something went wrong “ is the pop up caption....Version: 202010.0.8725

Energy expelled greater than energy availableI have played other farming games before but this is cumbersome. Very few ways of being able to get the energy required to complete quests or progress. Often I can do one thing and then have to close the game and wait. If there were breakout challenges to be able to earn energy that would be good. It seems like a game I would enjoy for a long time but I feel that I will lose patience with how slowly the game allows progress (and yes I waste time watching every ad to get energy). Chopping a tree down uses 129 energy credits but feeding the family 3 meals only gives you 79 energy credits, including watching the adverts!.Version: 2022104.0.14408

Game Has Changed for the WorseSo I’ve been playing this game on abs off for about a year to a year and a half and it has completely changed. At first, I didn’t like the game and quit playing for a couple of months because of the energy demand and how it affected gameplay. But then things seemed to get better with more opportunities to earn energy, keys, and gold items. Things were great! I started playing more regularly and spending more money on rubies and such. I was also getting more involved on the social media posts for the game. However, within the last month to two months things have DRASTICALLY CHANGED. It is near impossible to complete events because it consumes far too much energy, far too many resources, and there isn’t enough time. Because it costs SO MUCH energy to complete tasks now, purchasing rubies/energy is useless as you still won’t be able to get any where close to completing the game. Gold items are nearly impossible to get. And all players are no longer rewarded for interacting on social media, only a select few. I don’t know what happened in the company, but whoever suggested that all these changes happen lead you down the wrong path. The game isn’t fun anymore, just a cash grab. Reading comments from the developer make it seem that these changes are permanent, so I think I am completely done with this game. It was fun for a while at least..Version: 2022114.0.14880

Difficult to level upIt’s really hard to level up without paying so I’m quitting.Version: 2022206.1.22525

Oops something went wrong.I spent a lot of time clearing debris and full filling quests and as a as I finished “exploring Nearby Island” I can’t get back into the game. I keep getting the message “oops... something went wrong”. My daughter got to the same point in the game and is experiencing the same super frustrating issue!.Version: 202010.0.8725

Fraudulent ActivityAfter making my first purchase on the game it crashed and logged me out of my account which was linked to my FB so I wouldn’t lose progress right?? Well after trying to log back in, it started me at lvl 1, and then it kicked me out again and the app was a blank icon. I tried reaching out to developers more than once (including social media) all to get the same automated response. I was new to the game barely playing for not even a week but got pretty far and wanted my information especially after spending money on it. The links they sent to my email didn’t work, I sent proof and screenshots everything they asked for only thing is if you don’t have your old ID name they can’t and won’t do anything for you, if you lost your progress and you’ve spent money on this game it’s gone. After trying and a whole lot of nothing coming from customer support, useless links, and no replies, I deleted the game issued a refund and got denied. Filed an dispute explaining everything and still got denied. Don’t bother with this game, if you don’t want your money stolen. Apple support was useless even after explaining everything that happened in detail willing to show proof they decided support a game that steals your money and doesn’t work as advertised and the way it was supposed to..Version: 2021124.0.11600

Time and Energy requiredI liked the look of this game so thought I would give it a whirl. I am really enjoying the game however it is painfully slow and frustrating to do anything. The ratio of energy to the activity is so far out of proportion it’s silly. I can log on the game, remove one tree and then that’s it until I refill. The alternative is to purchase energy but even with this you won’t get very far, especially if you only purchase a bit. I’m going to see how the game pans out but if the ratio doesn’t change, I will delete as it’s unreasonable. Other than that, I am enjoying it..Version: 202017.1.10615

Never enough energy!This game was fun, graphics are cool and I like the story line. That being said everything require SO much energy to complete and you hardly ever get any free energy. So if you want to pay you can but otherwise you’re just playing for a few minutes before your stuck waiting for your energy to recharge. It’s gets boring if I can only play for 5 mins at a time..Version: 2022202.0.21777

Fun? Kind ofI’ve had this game for roughly 6-10 months. Not entirely sure. I’m on level 24 I believe? I’ve participated in many events. At the start this game is really fun, it was so easy to level up and build things. Then as you go on, having the materials to build new building takes a lot of time and resources. Then there are two steps, which seem ridiculous because it takes so much for step one. You also have to wait incredibly long amount of time for materials that are HIGHLY needed to be done. Gold tools are very rare and hard to come by, which can cause a standstill in your gameplay. You also have to sacrifice so many things just to complete one project, because things like bricks and hammers take so much time. The animals also take a long time to produce materials. An hour for a single rooster to produce one piece of meat that I need to cook and give to the Shawman? Very ridiculous. While the game can be entertaining and satisfying to see your diligence pay off. It can be extremely frustrating. I would give it two and a half but that’s not possible so three is the best option. Personally if you like a game that makes you wait get this, but if not then download hay day instead..Version: 2022172.1.18706

Great game, but too slow to gain energyIt’s a great, relaxing game. Trouble is, once you’ve got rid of all the smaller energy items it’s extremely hard to do more. The larger rocks and trees are over 100 energy, so you can partially cut down then have to wait ages to build up energy to finish. Even with the “food” it isn’t enough. Completing shaman, and the boat orders only gives me enough to then chop down 2-3 items before needing to wait for energy to build up again. Nice game, but getting frustrated with the lack of energy. I can’t complete challenges on the special islands or the home islands because I can only partly clear one item before being able to progress in the game. The ability to sell excess items for energy (instead of XP) May be a way to improve this?.Version: 2021134.0.11792

Has potential but too slowThere’s a lot to like about this game: the different missions, trying to organise your factories, searching for treasure chests etc. just takes too long to do anything. Energy runs out very quickly, sometimes there is only enough to chop one tree or break one pile of rocks. You might need to do hundreds of these tasks to complete a mission. And then the energy takes so long to refill, I just lose interest. There is no way to play this game at a reasonable speed without spending A LOT of money. I wouldn’t even mind spending a bit of cash here and there, but not at the level that is required to complete missions. It could be so much fun if they made it more playable! But it’s just a bit of a failure..Version: 202104.1.10960

Frustrated and Unhappy.Twice now this game has reset itself wiping the days progress away. This has now happened on an event island that I paid real money to play. I’ve spent so much money on this game and I bitterly resent it when this happens. The game is horrendously expensive . You get no where without money because so much energy and resources are necessary to complete tasks. Today’s I lost everything . Progress, energy, money ,gold tools. Is the universe telling me not to waste time and money. Probably. If you haven’t started playing this game . Don’t! Have to laugh. I’ve just read other players comments/ complaints. Hilarious how the developers promise to take player comments into consideration and made revisions to game play. Complaints from 12 months ago still exist today. Nothing has changed ..Version: 2022100.0.14253

Would be greatThis game is fun and it makes you want to check in throughout the day to finish tasks. But, it will not load. I have deleted and reinstalled so many times, I’ve checked internet connection and it’s fine. None of my other games have this problem loading. It gets about 45% loaded and a box pops up that says. You need internet connection to play this game. Check your connection. Ok, so i searched online and found others have ‘this same issue. I did everything that was suggested. Yes I even have VPN and use it. I decided to write the support team in hopes of a resolution. Took them 2 days to send me a canned speech to try everything I’ve already tried. The bad part is I explained everything I did to correct the problem on my end. It appears they don’t take the time to read what people are saying to them. I’ve gotten to play this game 4 times. I’m just so tired of trying. There are plenty of other games that don’t have this annoying issue and their support team actually cares. I’m not going to write in the support team they seem to the link they attach to these reviews because I’ve already tried that. Don’t buy rubies like I did. You won’t be able to use them..Version: 202007.1.7699

App won’t connect to internetGame was working for two weeks now suddenly it will not connect to the fully functioning and working internet. Have tried to connect developers to no avail. Annoying esp as I have spent money on this game grrrrrr..Version: 202008.1.8017

Started off fun...But then after a while got boring and frustrating. I have items taking up storage that I can’t even use yet, and now have no room for the things I need currently. Have no way of offloading said items I can’t use, as there is no option. Wish there was a way to send needed items to clan members, and receive items in return. Would also be nice if some of the resources didn’t have such high energy costs. As well as a lot of upgrades not have high item costs as well. Hard to upgrade things when pretty much everything takes the same few items, and I can never have enough energy to get them. Have already “blown” close to $100 on this game, just to get somewhere, really don’t want to have to keep paying just to play. If not resolved, I will just uninstall the game and go on about my life. Too many more important things to use my cash on. Got the game to give me something to do during lockdown during pandemic. But it’s clear to see that the game is just another money drain..Version: 2021120.0.11430

Disappointing serviceI have been playing this game for a looooong time and have had issues along the way. I kept playing even when I was at maximum levels because I enjoyed it. What I don’t enjoy is that the developers are happy to take your money but not reply to messages or compensate you when things go wrong. For example just the other day I was on level 42 and then the game reverted to level 1! Yup and no one replied from support for days and when they did was told sorry and no I can’t compensate you for anything. Mind you they’re still happy to take my money. There was no goodwill and it’s one issue after another. I think I’ll stop playing soon mainly for the reason that I can only support a business with good ethics and customer service..Version: 202008.0.7899

Used to be greatThis used to be my favourite game. You could easily play without having to spend real money on extra energy and gems. The extra island events used to be really fun, I easily could finish them within the time limit. But now everything requires a ridiculous amount of energy. One thing sometimes cost around 135 energy to chop and my max energy is only 90! And the amount of things you have to collect in the events is crazy. It’s definitely all about making money now for the game developers. I contacted them to complain and was told to save up my energy and they can’t change the amount of energy needed to complete tasks…. Yes you can, you are the developer!! I have spent real money in the past, but no more. It used to help complete tasks and events but not anymore. I’m off to play other games..Version: 2022178.1.19302

UpdateI had finished polar island and had moved onto star island but then it randomly reset the progress on these islands. I now have to restart at polar island. My other progress on my main island is still the same. I was wondering if you could please fix this glitch.Version: 201910.1.5305

$$$Unless you plan on spending your own real money, don’t do it. The cost of EVERYTHING is outrageous and it takes weeks to construct everything you need to make a simple upgrade, if you ever even can. I’ve played for months and I’ve been able to upgrade one building. You aren’t given enough energy to cover a smidgeon of what you’re required to do to keep moving up. I’ve completely given up on the special islands that they do every three or four days, no doubt just to make extra $$ off of people. RIP OFF. What kills me is, this game has SO many more bad reviews than good, yet they continue to not change a thing or make it better. It’s stupid to not realize how much money you’re losing by making it where so many people can’t play. It’s not fun. Not in any way. It’s frustrating and stressful. So stupid. After reading the developer’s reply, I’d like to add that almost continuous play is necessary to complete adventures, and each upgrade takes more and more items that each take more and more items that you must craft; ie causing you to either have to play constantly or spend your own money. New adventures start every few days and they’re utterly impossible to finish without spending cash. Developers obviously do not want people playing who are not willing to spend their hard earned cash in a game that is absolutely ridiculous anyway. I have better things to spend mine on, thanks..Version: 2022206.0.22287

Could be so great!This game is so cute and could be such a great game. But it is designed to be impossible to actively play unless you spend money. For instance, I am at level 12 and to progress into an area, I need to clear a tree and a rock formation. At level 12 the max amount of energy I can store is 75, the tree is 108 energy to clear and the rocks are 258 energy to clear. So that is impossible! I NEVER EVER spend real money on games but I did spend some $$ to see if I could progress at all and it lasted about 10 min for all the tasks of clearing objects. And you have to clear trees and rocks and grass because you need those resources to craft items to build your island up but you spend all your time crafting. Each kind of building requires certain objects to progress but the problem is you need to craft 15 stakes to build something but to craft the stakes you need to craft rock scrappers and wood, etc. so it just takes FOREVER! When I find a game I like I stick with it, I have been playing Lily’s Garden for over a year now and I am on level 1572 and I have never spent a dime. I thought this was going to be a fun fresh game but I am probably going to delete it soon. The only reason I haven’t yet is because I did spend a little money..Version: 202011.1.9290

Good gameThis is a cool game but Still having problems when ever paying for rubies... payment goes through but no rubies are given.. or it says something went wrong. Fix this problem!.Version: 202005.1.6898

Sooo expensiveI love the game and all its options and adventures. However it is one of the most expensive games I’ve come across. Energies don’t last long because everything you do takes a lot of energy. I purchased some rubies to get more energy to do an expedition on an island where I finally reached a stack of gifts containing energy (1500 of them) and then as I was opening them they went into a piggy bank where now if I want those I have to pay to open the piggy bank!!! I understand you need to make some return from the game but the amount of money you need to spend actually achieve anything is way too much..Version: 2022134.1.15922

Was fun, now restoring progressI really wish it would not restore my progress, because i am really more of a “start from a clean slate” kinda guy, so can you fix this issue in the next 3 days? Will be checking if issue is fixed or not on day four! Thanks! And if you want to succes in the given Criteria, you had better get started now! Like, the second you receive this Review! Thanks! Just to remind you, three days, will be checking back in on day four! And also why is it rated 12+? I am only 10 and it has bedn fine so maybe you should change it to 4+. I have experinced no inappropriate issues with this game! (Edited).Version: 2022200.0.21425

Need more energy!Really love this game but as others have said the energy recharges to slowly.... Rubies & keys seem hard to get without purchases which I understand but wish there was another way around! I don't mind doing the occasional purchase but it seems that you can't complete quests without purchases which with today's climate of high bills just isn't as easy as that!! Can see having to wait this game because of this which is a shame..... So developers if you read this please make energy at the very least easier to get! Thanks Btw this is the first game I've ever left a review for!!.Version: 2022156.1.17228

Good luck if you need any support in this game!!Worst customer service I have ever experienced in a game. I notify of glitches or errors when I can, not only in hopes of being reimbursed for whatever went wrong, but also in order to help the game run better. All that customer support will do is tell you you are wrong and there is no glitch or issue. Pics or it didn’t happen. Since I don’t know when glitches are going to happen, how would I know to take screenshots?? They also start special events and then randomly delete them, wasting your time and energy. The gameplay itself is fun. It’s a good game. But I can never support paying money into a game where the customer support is so terrible. I put a little money into games I enjoy playing to support them and keep them around, but this game is now strictly “free-to-play” for me. They are not getting one more single dollar from me..Version: 2022172.1.18706

Impossible to complete most eventsI keep hoping they will improve the probability that most people could finish an event but since I’m in 1st by a landslide and haven’t gotten past the 1st of two islands to explore on this event which ends in 18 hours it’s highly unlikely the developers are listening. I agree with every comment about how difficult it is to get energy in order to accomplish anything. I understand you can “make food” or fulfill boat orders but it take a ton of items to do that and the max you get is 60 energy! I can’t cut down 1 tree for 60 energy. I keep coming back thinking the next event will be reasonable and I might have a chance to get close to completing it but im pretty close to deleting this app because these developers clearly aren’t listening. Be prepared to be annoyed if you add this game. Thanks for your response but on this next event I’m a day and a half in - I’m in 7th place and I haven’t opened a single gift for completing tasks yet. Positive your Facebook posts won’t help so don’t bother to respond. Sad how much you have destroyed the fun of this game by making it impossible. Takes 3000 energy points to get 50 free ones from a gift. Silliness..Version: 2022122.0.15263

Waste of time.Can’t find my last review. I don’t know. It was long. I’m deleting this game today after about 3/4 months. I will just say a few of my frustrations. It’s really unfortunate that you can be one item away from finishing the merchant order and you don’t come back in time - so despite having the item made - you missed the bonus and have forfeited all those items. You end up with a bonus that reflects wasting less resources than you did. It’s not fair. I don’t know how many times I’ve been finishing up the last item and he leaves and I’m left with no key for chests after forfeiting a ton of resources. It’s not right. I’ve been double charged multiple times for in app purchases. The amount of stones you’ve needed to harvest to make scrapers and stakes and boards for this latest event is RIDICULOUS. I spent $20+ over the last few days and regret it because it barely even helped. I play regularly. So disappointing. You invest so much time and energy and it just takes and takes. And then your bathroom breaks. And you need to use rare resources to repair it - all so you can get an occasional sprinkle of like 10 energy... enough to pick grass. The cheapest option for purchasing in game is $4!!!!!!!!!! Not .99... not 1.99... the cheapest option is 3.99. It’s sad. It was cute for a while. I enjoyed the dialogue. Now I’m just disappointed and moving on..Version: 202013.0.9903

Not enough energy to playThe game is good, but virtually impossible to progress. It takes to long to gain enough energy And there aren’t enough resources to make your own food to gain extra. So you just give up.Version: 202104.1.10960

Great if you’ve got lots of money to spend!I’m really enjoying this game, but - and I never usually write reviews - it’s super irritating, as you literally can’t complete a challenge without forking out… energy restores to about 72ish daily, which is less than chopping down 1 big tree! There are gifts, but they never amount to much when it comes to clearing a path or gathering resources….. Each island challenge is a 2/3 day event, which means you’re never likely to complete without paying A LOT for extra energy or crystals… I have paid for the odd bundle, but I refuse to pay to play each evening… that’s more than a bloody PlayStation game! Please can it be just a little more economical and less greedy!.Version: 2021172.0.12610

Fun, but only for the 1st dayI played this game and it was fun for the 1st day. So much to do. But then after a day it became slow progress unless you spend loads of money to buy rubies. It takes too long to wait for energy and to clear an item it then costs too much energy. So youre only clearly a few items each day. I want a game that can keep me occupied and entertained. Not something that is so slow that its like watching paint dry. Updating my review following their response... My feedback still stands unchanged. Even with all their suggestions on how to find more energy through exploring, the game is still far too slow. They need to lessen the the amount of energy it costs to clear obstacles and then it would be worth my time to play. Maybe even reduce the cost of buying rubies, then I might be more inclined to spend real money..Version: 202006.1.7513

CrashesI just downloaded this game and I can’t even start playing it. As soon as the app loads it crashes and shuts down. Very annoying..Version: 202103.1.10816

PoorIt keeps stating newer version but you can’t do anything. I have followed the instructions in the faults but but still the same issue which means I can’t play. I have paid for items and now can’t use..Version: 202009.3.8528

Didn’t receive RubiesI was told in a message from the game that if I downloaded their cafe game and got it to level seven and joined a township I would get 100 rubies. I didn’t get any rubies. Not at all happy, especially as the cafe game is so incredibly boring. Also, this game takes ages to build up enough energy if you don’t have money to purchase it.Version: 202101.1.10636

Had potentialSucks cause this game could have been great but you need energy for everything and it takes forever to get any. Not to mention you need more than what they do give you. Just a money grab..Version: 202101.0.10629

Great game, but slow/hard to completeThis is a great game that can get you hooked for hours in a day. Graphics is good and the quests make it interesting to keep playing. Unfortunately as with most games with in-app purchase, the developers of this game has similar things in their mind. Making it really hard to complete quests and also upgrade your buildings that either: 1. You gave up altogether cause it takes so long to upgrade a building, and also near impossible to complete a quest without buying gems for energies, or 2. You shell out your hard earned money for a game where it’s sole purpose in your life is just for entertainment and nothing more but actually wasting your time (think about it, yes it may give you satisfaction when you completed a quest or upgraded a building, but how much time have you wasted in your day/life that you could actually have used it better such as for exercise, sleep, or even make more money!).Version: 2021172.0.12610

Good fun game but...Basic premise is to clear the land of trees, shrubs and rocks/clay. You then use those gathered resources and improve your buildings and enhance your technology. Was really good fun at the start and some of the trees and rocks take a lot of energy to remove, more than you can achieve at early levels. I have managed to get to level 15 and this is where it is becoming less fun as the game now puts trees and rocks back on land you have already cleared. What’s the point of spending to clear only for you to stick a tree in the middle of my settlement requiring a lot of energy to remove when there is still so much to do anyway. If this continues the enjoyment will diminish and it just won’t get played. Don’t keep trying to mess up areas that I have worked so hard to clear..Version: 202010.2.8876

Reinforces gender stereotypesFrom the very start of the game the father and son craft tools, hunt, mine stone and chop trees, and figure out all innovations, while the daughter and mother keep the hearth warm, clean, gather, cook and serve food, and at best use a loom, while the mother constantly expresses how safe she feels about their future when she looks at all the supplies the father provided. At one point the daughter asks if the family shouldn’t have left her behind on the old island in exchange for 100,000 rubies (the in-game meta currency). In 2021 I find it unacceptable that in a family game you’d reinforce the notion that men should bring home the bacon and advance the civilisation while women should learn self doubt, that seeing themselves as currency is appropriate, and that simple service labour is the best they can amount to. Parents - please do not get this game for your kids until this is fixed. Developers - please fix the sexist dialogue and division of labour, so we can enjoy the beautiful art work and fun mechanics of the game..Version: 202102.0.10659

Pity the developers are not listeningLike previous reviews I find this game fun but extremely frustrating There is a fine balance between making the game too easy vs hard. The problem is the developers are way way off the mark. The energy takes forever to reload while the cost for rubies are astronomical high. I would have paid if it’s a full game with some degree of waiting (I actually find the waiting meaningful if they get it right). So overall... what a shame. Please come up w a full game and charge for it rather than the current silly model..Version: 201908.2.4862

Horrible stereotypeThis app reinforces gender stereotypes. Haven’t we moved beyond this!!??.Version: 2021192.0.13007

In-game purchase theftTwice now I made purchases in game and items did not arrive. I contacted support first time and they told me they had, then when I pushed it further, miraculously they realised they were wrong and credited the items. It happened again today and they again told me I was wrong and items had been credited. I told them this was the second time this had happened and they needed to check again because I know I’m right and they ended the support chat! Now taking it up with Apple to be refunded. Do not give money to this game! Unethical thieves that don’t respect those that pay money to play their game. Disappointing because I have loved this game….Version: 2022170.1.18411

Okay but could be a lot betterThis game is a lot of fun, and I truly do enjoy the gameplay. However there are several issues with it too. For the amount of energy you have, the tasks take a lot more energy that you can afford. I can wait all night and only save up about 75 energy the next day, with can be used up in seconds by cutting down two trees and a bush in one of the events. You can get statue boosters in your island, but those only last about three charges of energy before you need you refill them with expensive and time consuming time balls. I can never play the game cause I never have energy. Also, I downloaded MyCafe for an offer of 100 rubies for Family Island. I completed all the tasks and even got an email saying that I should be receiving my rubies shortly. I waited all night but they never arrived. This is apparently a common problem, and I feel scammed and ripped off. I went to the help section, and was basically told it was my fault and that I must not have done the requirements, even though I did. A good game, but not worth downloading until these problems are fixed..Version: 2021152.0.12131

Irrelevant comments by the characters in this gameI downloaded this game after it came up as an ad on one of my social media accounts. I’ve been playing it for 2 days now and I was halfways through level 8. When I first started playing it, I was reading the little story it has about how the tribe left the island or whatever but then as the game goes on, the little kids (in the game) ask random questions about the creations of life for example “where do trees come from?” And “what comes first, the chicken or the egg?” And then parents have the two options to respond with like Mother Nature or ( i can’t remember the exact phrase but said something in regards to a higher power) God or gods and I even got to one where the responses said “the dev...” I got annoyed and deleted the game. From as far as I have gotten, I only noticed word phrases in regards to a higher power and hear a lot more about Mother Nature. Nevertheless it doesn’t seem to fit the story of the game. Like it’s a game how could you talk about something so serious and the only answers the parents (characters) can give are Mother Nature? These random questions from the characters are quite frequent. Talking about Mother Nature and the devil and whatever do not seem to fit the story of a GAME called Family Island. Like? I thought it was supposed to be a game about a family rebuilding an island? I mean they literally look like little cavemen cartoons!.Version: 202102.0.10659

Time Consuming and UnfulfillingI gave this game a shot because I love the graphics, the personalities of the characters and the basic idea of the gameplay. But I quickly learned that you have to craft an overwhelming amount of time consuming items to get anywhere. And at a certain point you have to craft those items just so you can further craft different items. The problem is, each upgrade to a building, each repair of a staircase, a building or a ditch requires loads of those items as well. THEN if you want those keys that open the chests with the golden tools (which are required to remove randomly placed wooden obstacles on your land), you have to hand over loads of items you labored over (meant for something else) to the dude with the boat. So essentially... you make very little progress, you spend all of your time crafting and waiting on crafted items, and very little time actually playing a game. I've resorted to logging in, getting crafting started, and then logging out to play a different game. I did purchase gems to see if it helped. But I really made no no measurable progress. So as cute as this game it. I think I'm just going to delete it. In my opinion, it's just not rewarding gameplay. Shame. It has a lot of potential..Version: 202010.2.8876

Good but expensiveI’ve been playing this a little while now and I do enjoy it but there is now such a disparity between the energy you have and how much energy things cost to harvest. For example in the current quest of magpie island to harvest just 1 wild pumpkin is 75 energy. That’s outrageous! In the previous halloween quest it was just 25 energy to harvest. The quests are particularly bad and even with all the extra energy gift boxes scattered around you just can’t get anywhere without spending real money. I understand this is how you make your money for a free app but it’s impossible to enjoy without spending. Please reduce the amount of energy you need to harvest items within quests, I’m likely to delete the game if this doesn’t improve..Version: 2021202.0.13234

Energies disappear and support is uselessBoth my husband and I have been playing this game, it is a great game in concept. However my husband has deleted his as he had over 600 energies and they disappeared overnight. I had a few hundred that also disappeared the same time. Supports response (which takes over a day) was that nothing was wrong and they had apparently checked and stated we had used all our energies collecting rocks and sticks. This is not the case. We both contacted multiple times. And both got the same standard responses. Then today I came back on from this morning and had lost over a thousand energies that I had received as a reward for completing all the tasks on the previous island. I too will be deleting this game, because of what appears to be dishonest or at the very least incompetent conduct from the support team..Version: 2021194.0.13111

FreezingLoved this game until I updated it. Now I can’t get past the loading page to get into the game. It’s been 3 weeks of trying to play. I’ve deleted and redownloaded the game 23x now but I still can’t get in. Frustrating..Version: 202011.1.9290

You won’t get very far without spending money… or WAITING…The game is fun and cute, and when you first start playing, it can keep you pretty busy. But the energy you need to complete tasks and events depletes so much faster than the amount of time it takes you to earn any of it back. Of course you can purchase more energy, more tools, etc, but no matter how much you spend, it won’t last long… then you’ll be right back to the point of buying more or waiting… and waiting. When I play a game (which is not very often AT ALL), I want to PLAY the game and at least feel like I achieved something during that time, even if it is just a game. I have spent way too much time and money to be right back to the point of waiting. If you choose to wait it out and are able to avoid spending money, you’ll get to where you log on just to collect the items you were waiting on, add more items to be made, then log off and wait some more. I’m sure that’s a business strategy (since, who really wants to wait that long?), but during all of this waiting, I’m now looking for different games that don’t feel like such a waste of time and money..Version: 2022176.1.19009

Disappointed & DisgustedIf you asked me yesterday I would probably have given this game a 4 star review , I enjoyed the progress although it’s always been hard getting enough resources together for progressing, however thinks had drastically Improved with much better rewards for fulfilling Merchants wish list and the rewards for swapping goods for a key ! Today it’s taken a huge st backwards giving piffling little energy rewards making progression difficult and the only real way forward to spend a lot of money ! I have made quite a few purchases of the last couple of months , but not now , I won’t spent another penny ! For children with parents steer them away from the greed of the developers of this game ,.Version: 2022122.0.15263

Great game but expensive to obtain extra energy and rubiesI was testing this game to see if it was good for my young nieces and nephews to play. Although I enjoyed the game and it looked promising for the kids the energy reserves deplete very quickly and purchasing extras seems reasonably priced until you work out that the further you go in the game the higher the energy cost for items. This then means that to play for more than 5-10 minutes at a time stacks up to buy the extra energy and rubies. Due to this I chose to delete the game and find something else for the kids to play that didn’t have me spending half my weekly pay on credits..Version: 2021184.0.12838

Crappy gameStorage is always full, not fun. Difficult to follow, little information..Version: 2022202.0.21777

DisgustingI’ve been playing this game for quite a while and I’m used to the amount of ads, but today there was an ad that promoted a game that incorporates sexual assault. I’m beyond words. The mini game has you forcibly removing the clothes of a tethered woman. It’s unbelievably disgusting. Do the makers of this game not check into the ad content before allowing this? Melsoft is as much to blame here. Not funny..Version: 2021142.0.11922
