YeeshNothing like the add.Version: 3.9.2

Playrix cheatsYou can see it with some levels especially the oil ones where you have to remove the oil that you know that you have got it on your last move yet the game says you didn't get it which to me is cheating be cause the only thing left is the barrel and you can't destroy. And it's a game that discriminates against players that don't spend money even though they say that there games can be beaten without spending money that might be true but if there is a competition to collect pearls or collect electricity if you get stuck on a level it might be sometime before you get past that level by then you are so far behind in the competition because you didn't spend money to get bombs you could never end up on top of the competition therefore playrix discriminates against you for not spending money.Version: 4.5.4

Seriously getting annoyed with the bugs and difficulty with supportI bought the seasonal gold pass and very soon realised it was an absolute waste of money. The snow bomber destroys 2 tiles as a bonus but has actually destroyed my lightnings/explosives more frequently than I could tolerate. Also, if you happen to finish a level on the last move with the snow bomber, you end up ‘losing’ that game. So if you have racked up any bonus, you lose that as well as a life. Once you exit, of course you progress to next level having completed it but lost a life and any bonus - so frustrating. As for the support - it is a constant maze of repetitive steps with limited options. If you get lucky enough and beat the maze (bot) you are put through to a person who typically responds a day or so later, often when the glitch is gone or the event has ended. If you have unlimited lives active, be prepared for a lot of time spent on beating very few levels. Quite a few ‘normal’ levels are much harder than super hard levels. The game has potential but severely handicapped by bugs as above amongst other things..Version: 5.3.0

Started off great but soon turns into a money making scamLoved the game at the start, but I’m now ready to uninstall. I don’t take kindly to being ripped off. After the honeymoon period the games, especially the hard (boring and repetitive) and super hard (super boring and repetitive) feel very much like they’re rigged. I particularly dislike the fact that if there are no moves on the board it will force you to use any booster you made. Added to that, if you do capitulate and purchase boosters to help you get past a level they’re often put somewhere useless where you can’t use them (eg the lightning wedged in a corner surrounded by stones or gold). There is no skill involved, it’s down to dumb luck and the hard levels just depend on crap drops. It’s a King game all over again that sees players through dollar sign eyes. I think these [email protected] like King and this game should be investigated. I have no doubt the games (hard/ultra boring levels) are designed to get money. The last straw for me was level 1283 (i think] I had 1 hour infinite life, 1 hour infinite lightning and I used bombs, dynamite and lightning and STILL not get past the level, I even used the extra moves option. After an HOUR of playing WITH boosters and still no success, and btw I had to keep quitting because the lightning kept getting bunged somewhere I couldn’t use it, I gave up. I’m done. I do not like being taken for a mug. Shame on me for giving them money. Absolute pi$$ take..Version: 5.0.0

Another generic match three gameI thought that this would be a cool and unique game like in the ads but no it had to be another boring and generic match three game as if we didn’t have enough of those the mini games are worse than the demos and I had more fun watching the ads than playing the game itself even the demo was more fun and that demo game was a lie of what the actual game is this game is very lazy and extremely boring it seems as if it’s to much to ask for developers to try something new and different but it seems that you just thought that it would be easier to make a match three game like every other game on the AppStore very disappointed, I hope that the next game you make is nothing like thais and is at least a little bit creative because this game is not creative at all !.Version: 4.7.5

Do you have endless cash to spend? Then this game is for you!This game is quiet addictive and lots of fun but the kicker is the rediculous cost of Gems needed to progress through the levels. I have to agree with other reviewers of the game that if you want to move on to the next level of having used 20+ lives unsuccessfully because bombs are needed to finish then you are left with the option of abandoning the game or buying the gems. Even to get an addition 5 moves they charge you 9 gems. Developers need to review costs or ways to accrue gems as current game play is not fun nor sustainable in its current form. Maybe instead of charging 9 gems for an extra 5 moves give players the option of watching a 30 second add... This would still make the developers more $$$ but allow players better chance of progressing to the next level....Version: 2.7.3

Hard & Super Hard levels...Do any of the developers ever play this game themselves? My guess is NOT, otherwise they would have noticed how easy Hard and Super Hard levels are compared to the rest! More: Quite irritated by how good play is "rewarded" with strategically [mis]placed bonuses. Invariably they upset a really good position of tiles resulting in the loss of powerful bombs etc. Also notice much harder play of levels when I choose to play with extra "help". Question: WHY, after earning money because of good play, do I then have to buy that Fake Money with Real Money?? Another punishment! "Fill the vault" should EARN US extras! Really weird game play, regardless of whether others do this as well....Version: 3.7.0

PurchasesIn app purchases are a lot more than what it says 😡.Version: 3.9.2

Fair game for awhileIt was a fair game to play for awhile, after level 60-70 it’s impossible to progress, some levels are completely covered and you have only like 13 steps to uncover it. It’s impossible without speedups which cost money. I am giving 1 stars because it’s false advertisement. Unethical. The ad is completely different than the game itself..Version: 4.7.5

False advertisingThis app was pretty fun! I deleted it a while ago because im not very interested in these type of games, my only concern is that you are tricking people with the advertisements you are putting for this game. I saw a developer reply to a review complaining about the same thing, and the developer said that the advertisement she saw was a mini game. Now what doesn't make sense to me is why would you make a whole advertisement on a mini game instead of the actual game? That confuses and tricks people. I am personally not very happy about this, i hope game developers take this to mind because if you made advertisements about the actual game, people who like these kind of games would download it and enjoy it, but since you didn’t people are getting tricked and the app is getting bad reviews..Version: 5.3.0

Pretty disappointedI downloaded this game because it was one of those persistent ads on another game. It’s nothing like the game that was advertised. The ad made it look like a set of puzzles to save the fish. Instead, it’s just another variant of Candy Crush. Match the pieces; collect the gold; use the coins to but aquarium decorations and more pretend fish. Definitely not the game it was advertised to be. Also, what’s with the fish shaming you and using psychological manipulation to get you to leave reviews or join teams? Although the game is not the game it was represented to be, I initially thought there was a place for a game like this with children but after watching the not so subtle shaming programming coming from the fish, no way I’d let a young child play it..Version: 4.6.3

Lame, and not as advertisedI am bombarded with ads for this game while playing other games, but the actual game is nothing like the advertised one. This is clickbait. In reality it is a really lame and unresponsive match 3 game..Version: 4.6.3

Nothing like the addAnother tile matching game with little reward. Only way to win is spending real human money for boosts. Such a scam.Version: 4.7.5

DeletedSo many disappointments. Finally just deleted it at Level 1600 something. First, the game they advertise with is not the game you actually play. You think you are going to guide the fish through obstacles to a goal. Nope. It’s a matching levels game. Virtually the same game over and over with a few variations. I really loved the squid and the seals games. Really, really hated the oil levels. And then you can “decorate” tanks that you unlock with coins you “earn.” You generally have 3 tanks you are building at a time. You would expect levels to get harder and you understand the game wants you to spend money. I didn’t spend any money. Without making purchases, you will have to stay at the same level, even as long as a day or two, but they let you get to the point where you just need ONE MORE turn to win the level and move on. This happens regularly and I realize they want you to make purchases. I’d rather buy a game outright than be manipulated to make in-app purchases. Ultimately, the reason I deleted the game is I don’t like the constant manipulation. If you don’t mind making a lot of in-app purchases, you will probably enjoy this app. It’s a good game, but definitely rigged to make you want to spend money to move from harder levels..Version: 5.5.6

Definitely riggedAfter playing 930 some rounds I’ve noticed that the controls start to become real sloppy ... example when you go to swap to the emblems it will actually go the other way so you have to mainly click on each an individual item to swap instead of putting your finger on one emblem and move it to another when you try that it actually goes the other way so if you’re trying to connect the corner emblem to say to make a line of five it will sometimes go the other way and connect only three...... when you start using the explosive the mines the dynamite the firecrackers and so on it shows up in a meter .... you must fill up this meter and then it gives you this triangle looking lightning bolt the problem is every time you use those explosive they don’t really power up the meter like they’re supposed to which doesn’t give you those extra power ups so you got a watch out for that..... and there’s also the challenges select you’re supposed to clear out 24 bubble emblems well you’ll have to spend six or 10 of your moves before any of those ones that you’re supposed to clear out will drop down hence you can’t win on the first round unless you spend money to buy these power ups...... it’s sad that they have to rip the game like this not only could’ve been extremely fun but like a lot of Game Developers their greed has outweighed their talent for making a game fun.Version: 4.4.0

BlahUse to be really addictive but now it's frustrating. There no updates of new bowls etc so your stuck on the same theme for months then time by there is an update it's only for one theme so you can complete it within minutes cos you've have nothing to spend your coins on for the past few months. Was a good game but it's peaked now..Version: 2.4.0

Was incredible game but .....This was a really fantastic game, in early days one could visit all friends aquariums easily, one could feed fish therein also. One felt frustrated and how difficult it was when having paid for power ups there was no control where they were placed, but at least there was the hammer and swapper. The swapper was great as it gave a degree of control you could move a bomb or dynamite to a more useful place on board. But the the owner seems to have become increasingly greedy. This is not a free game it is paid for through the need at times to buy power ups. They changed the most useful swapper for the glove and brought in the very expensive torpedo. Then they stopped you visiting friends aquariums only let you visit the last one and brought in the silly seasonal aquaria, that often have no fish to feed. Time to help players more. You say that all game levels can be gone through without power ups but at some levels I can not believe this nor can friends who are far higher than me. You give less encouragement to stay and play. I don’t play for competition and many friends have left because they don’t want to compete, just want to enjoy visiting friends getting ideas. And playing with fish and watching them. In many games you can help friends more but not in playrix It is sad but be warned this will cost.Version: 4.1.5

False advertising don’t download!!!The game is NOTHING like the ads..Version: 4.7.0

Should be illegalThose fake gameplay adds. They should be illegal. Since it’s not, it’s on us users to never support companies that rely on these tactics..Version: 4.6.3

False advertisingThis game is nothing like the advertised game shown in other games. Don’t waste your time (or phone space) downloading it..Version: 4.7.0

Where are the mini games?The advertisement for this game is what motivated me to download it. These mini games were periodically featured for the first levels, but then they stopped. So for those of you thinking of getting this game, if you really want it because of the Ad, you’re not going to get what you think..Version: 4.9.5

Boring gameNothing like advertised.Version: 4.3.2

Unfair unlimited livesI’m level 946 What really annoys me is the pass 3 levels and get two hours unlimited lives, lovely! But to get another two hours you only need to pass another 3-5 levels which automatically adds on to the two hours you’ve already won then 3-5 levels after that you get six hours.. who can sit and play any game for ten hours? If you have two whole hours it’s not going to be difficult to pass another 3-5 levels. Just seems pointless. It’s not reasonable and I always feel a waste. You should be able to bank the hours you ‘win’ or not have silly amounts of levels to pass before earning more unlimited lives.. other than my poor comment I enjoy this game, it’s bright and the levels are addictive with easy, hard and extra hard etc. I also like the little in-house competitions and the sub that visits with prizes after completing certain levels..Version: 2.6.5

Hide your credit cardA real money spinner for the developers, not only do they get revenue from ads but add insult to injury they also sell diamonds and they are expensive, you might get diamond one from watching an ad or sometimes when you win a game but it costs 9 for an extra 5 goes or for 30 seconds. This increases considerably if you suddenly find the previous attempt didn’t work. In all fairness diamonds should be sold for coins earned. Some levels are impossible to clear under normal conditions forcing the use of diamonds or bombs if one wants to progress to the next level. Once I finish using my last purchased diamonds the game will be trashed, shame really because it is an enjoyable game, but I will not put any more money into the crook developer..Version: 2.4.0

Cash grabIt was entertaining until about level 500. I realize difficulty should increase as you progress however it became exceedingly clear it became more rigged towards purchasing gems. The boosters often impede playability on the first move. They are placed specifically in the line-up of tiles clearly designed for gameplay (and effect). For example, five tiles combined are needed to make a bomb which is the only way to clear surrounding boxes. Despite being several other options for the boosters to be places, they predictably go into the exact boxes *designed* for gameplay to start that level. This applies even if you don’t select your boosters but are given them. So you have to keep losing the level to undo the in-game winning streak boosters. This depletes you’re lives and any advantage to actually being on a winning streak. Second, there are too many animations that impede game play. Normally it’s just annoying until you get to timed levels. Using lightening, required on some levels, can wipe out a large amount of tiles (or all tile if two are combined) and the board has to refill. As it refills more combinations are being made and it takes longer. All the while the clock is still ticking, and if you’ve made enough explosions another lightening booster(s) is waiting to drop. During that time you cannot make any moves and the clock is still ticking down. This has to be intentional to make you purchase gems. Done with the in-app purchase model..Version: 4.8.0

It’s okayI only recently downloaded this game and found the first level really enjoyable, now I’m on the “bronze level” and it’s become a struggle to get through the levels, like I’ve tried 20 times to get through a level without any “help” ie buying boosters. The only reason I stick around is I like my fish and building the aquariums. Also downloaded the app as it was an ad on my scrabble app as a puzzle type game but it’s not a puzzle game it’s another gem matching game. As I said I’ve stuck around because of the aquarium building but I don’t know how long I will if the levels get any harder..Version: 4.8.0

MisleadingGame lets you get only so far until it starts asking you for money. Buy jewels, coins extra lives,whatever. I deleted after two days. It’s garbage.Version: 4.7.5

It’s great! However..This app is very fun and addictive! However, I see a bunch of false ads on different games for Fishdom, and they don’t have any of those mini-games in the actual game! I did not download fishdom from the ads about rescuing a fish, but I think it’s unfair to advertise like that. Plus, the customer service is HORRID. I’d honestly like to challenge the creators in to replying to this comment, because I haven’t seen a single reply to any review mentioning the advertisements. Playrix, you need to own up to the false advertisement and actually show the game for what it is! One other thing about the game that really annoys me is that you can TELL they’re looking for you to spend a ton of money. The gems and power-ups are ridiculously priced and they’re always reminding you that there’s some kind of sale going on. They need to relax with that and just let people purchase if they want to purchase. That being said, I know I just completely trashed the app, but all in all it’s a great game. The fish are adorable and the decorations are the cutest. The different tanks are wonderful as well. Thanks for reading, and Playrix, I hope you take the time to actually read your reviews because your customer service is not the best right now..Version: 4.9.5

Misleading AdvertisementJust create the game you advertise, looks more interesting than this bs game..Version: 4.7.0

So predictableI’m on level 2820....your game is on my nerves because the free time you give out is used up on one hard level if you don’t use boosters. I’ve stockpiled diamond (I’ve got over 1800) and coins (I’ve got 118,000plus) so I could do whatever I wanted to beat the level obviously. I’ve never spent one thin dime—there’s not a game out there that would ever get me to spend real money on a game. My issue is— it’s so predictable when you are at these hard levels. I just play them day after day, getting defeated until the game finally lets you win. You can tell when it’s going to too—gems will blow up nowhere near where you just made your move, and there have been times when I pick white to be removed with a booster I’ve earned...and there’s white gems that will not be taken away with the use of that booster. So lame. Also— when you’re at the beginning of any game — nobody needs the ribbon coming across the screen to tell us what that games goal is. It’s at the top of the screen for heaven’s sake....we can see for ourselves. Irritating as hell. Just stop with the free time if all you’re going to do is keep you stuck on a hard level for the hour that is given and that’s all I’ve got to say..Version: 5.0.0

Don’t download this game. It was designed to take your money.Don’t play this game. It will make you spend money endlessly to keep playing. Go buy a Nintendo switch instead. It keeps making me lose after I hit a score of over 200 trying to get me to purchase tools to get me to the next level or trying to sell infinite lives but only for two hours. I thought it was because I was making mistakes at first but then it started doing it to me right after the first move which wasn’t much. It would give me no moves then reshuffle and still nothing. I played it in front of several people who also noticed there was no possible way to go to the next level unless I purchased tools or gems to keep going. So if your playing and keep getting nowhere You will start to believe it’s you but it’s not. This game was designed to take your money. Also the worst part was when win a game and it gives you the options to skip to a new game the button worked fine until I purchased or claimed two hours of infinite play. The button had to be pressed as much as 10 times to get it to skip. The algorithm was purposely doing it to me to make me run out of time. Once my time was up the button would go back to only having to be pressed once. That is cheating and I got so mad thinking about it I’ve deleted the game..Version: 5.6.4

My son would call it Medium....This is a fun game but there’s an obvious algorithm that makes the hard levels allow you to get to one move left with no way to win. It’s forcing you to either use extra lives, use your earned life lines or just plain buy help. When you earn help during a game the help lands in a place that normally doesn’t help. It, like all free games, plays mom the fact that most humans have no self control and need to win NOW!.Version: 4.7.5

Fun, but too stingy with rewardsAn enjoyable match 3 game, but way too stingy with rewards; takes forever to earn enough to fill your fish tank, and so miserly with handing out gems you may as well forget about it. I hate the timed levels, you basically just have to keep playing them until you hit a turn that drops enough bombs to just randomly blow up all the tiles because there's just no time for studying the grid and planning a strategy. You need patience for this game, or else be prepared to spend lots of real coin in order to keep playing and advancing levels. GET RID OF THE TIMER! Update: Now into the levels above 800. The game has only gotten worse. Now some levels have individual time bombs in the squares that you must take out before they count down and end the game before you're even out of turns. More and more it has become a matter of just taking turns until the level wins itself by dropping enough power-ups to complete the round. I'm getting very close to deleting the app entirely. Another update: The game is actually CHEATING! For the last FIVE GAMES IN A ROW I have been left with nothing but one or two squid to capture, and the game simply stopped issuing new squid! I even used up my gems buying extra turns to clear this level, but still no squid popping up until after last turn has been played! That’s the last straw. Deleting now..Version: 3.0.0

Good game but questions need to be answeredSo I downloaded this game as I watched an ad showing different puzzles in a game for example moving rods to free a fish etc. I have been playing the game for about 2 weeks now working my way through the levels which at first are really interesting and engaging, but soon after seems like some levels are fixed to encourage one to buy booster packs that are expensively priced. I brought some packs but thinking about it it all adds up and gets really expensive. I have got to level 85 without playing one of the puzzles that initially led me to downloading the game and I do not think they will come either as there is no indication in the game that they will come. It is an interesting game at first but can get monotonous especially as I was/am expecting g different types of games as the ads show.Version: 4.7.5

DisappointingI just hate the false advertisements. Why don’t you just create the game in the advertising and I’ll download that. Probably even pay for it..Version: 4.3.2

Very addictive cool game, but......I have been playing this game for almost a year. I enjoy it very much, but I get caught up and to keep moving forward a lot of time after many tries , you need to make purchases which I think are way to expensive for what you get. I think you need to get more for your money. If you are not careful it almost becomes like gambling. I have spent way to much money on this game. Some of the boards are really not possible unless less you use diamonds you need to purchase. They do few offer some if select the diamonds on the daily bonus, but they aren’t even enough to continue on a game with a couple more moves or time. Also right now it won’t let me play on regularly without a credit card to make purchases until I do an update and put in a credit card that it can charge. I dont want to buy anything now, I really want to challenge myself and stop spending money on this but I can’t even start a new game. I have been stupid and spent at least hundreds of dollars on this addictive game. So careful and also you are charged more than what you think you are paying. I normally am really good at a game after all this time, but the boards do change as well, even if it’s the same board. So it won’t always start the same each time..Version: 3.1.0

DumbIt’s nothing like the add don’t advertise things that doesn’t happen in the game.Version: 4.7.0

Can be expensive!I loved the idea of this game and quickly had two aquariums set up. However I’ve found it to be frustrating at times to pass the levels and expensive to buy extra add ons. I’ve amassed a huge amount of coins but can’t do anything with them as my aquariums are full and I can’t seem to open another one whatever I do. It would be great if you could exchange some of these coins for the useful purple diamonds. I know you’re not forced to buy extra help but you get so frustrated when you can’t pass a level you end up doing so. Also when I downloaded it it was on the assumption that I would be able to play save the fish from the shark/hot lava type of game. So far I think I have only had three opportunities to do this. I like the game but am seriously thinking of deleting due to cost and frustration level..Version: 5.3.6

Garbage gameStop advertising your game as something it is not!! Nothing but a stupid match game!! Real original 🙄 DO NOT DOWNLOAD!!!! Doesn’t even deserve the one star that you’re forced to give with review!!!.Version: 4.7.5

Hate this gameThis game sucks. I have been fooled with false advertisements so many times. Such a waste of time..Version: 4.7.5

Not like the adsI downloaded Fishdom because I was intrigued by the ads where you had to work out how to rescue a fish. It looked pretty interesting, moving barriers around and using physics to get cool water to the fish. Unfortunately this doesn’t happen in the game as far as I can see. It is just a boring matching game with some aquarium “decorating” thrown in. The only interesting thing has been the facts that you get when you buy aquarium plants. You win vouchers to buy hideous designer fish, none of which I want to buy. The graphics aren’t very sophisticated and the fish constantly nag you to buy more stuff. I will be deleting this game and will not be buying any other games by this firm..Version: 4.6.3

Loved old design, still a good gameLoved old design, still a good game to play if you need something to wake your mind up or give you something to do while waiting for something. I play with my morning coffee as i find it helps get your mind working ready for the day....Version: 3.7.0

Manipulative GameThis game decides if and when you will win. It is designed to tempt you to spend money on extras that will make winning easier. Delete!.Version: 4.3.2

Totally misleading!!!Often have patience tested by ads for one game within another game. Usually ignore, rarely hit ‘download now’. Attention caught by Fishdom ad that showed a goldfish swimming through a watery ‘obstacle course’ where logic choices of the player save the fish from hazards, or so it seemed. Thought, I’ll give this one a go and DID hit ‘download now’. Downloaded game NOTHING like the Ad!! It’s just a ‘fishy’ candy crush! Googled “Fishdom game nothing like ad” to find this is a ‘thing’. Apparently there’s a whole family of games from one developer that are nothing like the video ads used to promote them. It’s argued they violate Google play’s advertising policy... not the App store’s also?? Don’t support this dodgey commercial practice by downloading this rather dull copycat game!!.Version: 4.6.3

FakeThis App is a lie. Its fake...Version: 4.7.0

More false advertisingSeriously, please stop doing this.Version: 4.4.0

Stupid gameI would rate this zero stars but I have to do 1 to make it a review. So this game is overall an okay game but as soon as you go on the game there are millions of notifications that come up. When you collect the reward you get from doing quests, you press claim and then it takes you to another screen to claim for the second time. They need to fix this. The characters in the game speak to you soo much that it gets annoying and you can’t skip it. They should add a feature where you can press a skip button to stop the talking. They should also add a new feature where you can pause your infinite lives because you have to play it and it gets boring after a long time. Another feature they should add is to donate INFINITE lives, you can already donate regular lives if someone has ran out of lives but they need to make it so you can pick the amount of infinite lives to give to others..Version: 5.4.0

GoodI have been playing this game for years however it's not because it's great it's because there isn't another similar. The game could be better in the sense it cheats. The bombs are directed one place however it goes the other and not enough moves are given. Also you think you have cleared every tile but then suddenly another appears magically. And it's not me as I check to make sure. Yesterday I finished all the tiles but it's says I got one more. I didn't there was none left. So there might be some bug issues but I do get frustrated. Not enough presents are given either. The life button should be somewhere else as I press it according Denton and use my diamonds to buy life by mistake. It should not be together with play button. But I continue playing as it helps my mental health to relax and pass time. Thank you team..Version: 3.7.0

ChangesThis used to be such a fun game that I would get up through the night and play. I have set up all night just to play it. Now.....I really do not mind if weeks go by before I set to play again. Every game I have ever played has been ruined by trying to put too much in, and this is one of those games. I am not one of those people that don’t like change either....if it’s needed. I do believe you need to stay relevant, but at any cost? That’s where I draw the line. Most of the “new” is just stupid. Most people are looking for a game that they can play at their own luxury......to actually set and relax, but after all the changes I have a hard time combing the two. It is not all that relaxing anymore. I haven’t figured out the “group” thing works. I tried to start my own, but no one bit. I don’t know how to get to know the people, what THEIR rules are or going to be (whoever starts the group gets to set their own rules?....what level you have to be at, etc...). There are too many issues to go into now because my review would look like a book, lol. But just a few months ago, I still would have given at least a three star (some changes weren’t too bad, yet), but just not happy with at this point. I do hope that changes and I can start to enjoy my game again..Version: 4.0.3

FishdomWhy don’t you make a game that’s as fun as the fake ads?.Version: 4.6.3

Don’t get itNot worth downloading. It’s nothing like it’s advertised. More like candy crush type game.Version: 4.8.0

Nothing like the adAd looked cool, game is the same as most others and nothing like what was advertised.Version: 4.7.5

Nothing like the adThis game is nothing like the ad, in the game I don't see any pins, levers, sharks, or sea monsters. Just a suggestion in the next update you should keep the fish tank but make the challenges like they are in the ad and just remember this review is just a suggestion..Version: 4.7.5

It would have been 5 stars exceptGreed!!! The further you progress the more deliberate it gets requiring money to proceed. My Christmas tank is pathetic only because I wouldn't spend anymore money on extras so that I could proceed. I've spent a lot of money on this game & I was ok with it because it was a great game & worth the fun I was getting out of it. The higher I got the more I noticed the deliberate ways it was obviously not going to let me advance. When you have to pop the bubbles to complete the level & I had 10 or more moves left to get my last bubble yet there weren't any bubbles on the board until I reached my last 2 moves left & one drops not giving me any chance to get it. This has happened to me many times not just with bubbles, but the sqiuds as well. So how can people higher up the ladder get the needed levels completed to earn the bells & dress up our holiday tanks when it takes hours if not days to complete the harder levels as you progress into the levels 200 & higher. So yes this used to be a great game, now however I have no interest when all I can do is play 5 times before having to close it down & wait it out for 5 more unless I spend more money for another 5 minutes of play. It's sad because I really did enjoy playing it an even spending money on it until I realized I was spending more then the pleasure I was getting out of it..Version: 4.5.4

Ruined by greed... again!This is a good addictive game though has little to do with the oddly misleading advertisements for the game. Unfortunately, although it purports to be free to play, certain levels can only be completed using boosters which of course you never have enough of, but surprise, surprise, you can always buy them. You also have very limited lives which disappear extremely quickly when you get a “hard” or “very hard” level (which would better be described as “completely impossible”) unless you buy expensive boosters, without lives you get locked out of the game until your lives refresh again. Of course if you do want to spend, you can buy as many extra lives as you want. The result is that you eventually just go and find another game to play that doesn’t keep locking you out, which seems a little counterproductive So to sum up... if you don’t regularly spend cash the game soon becomes very frustrating as it will only let you win when it wants to..Version: 4.9.5

Match 3 with fish tanks to decorateI go thru phases with these kinds of games. I use them to wind down and switch off my brain before sleep. This game has lasted longer than usual partly due to the creative aspect and partly because the teams/give lives option isn’t dependent on Facebook. A couple of changes would ease up on frustration (and keep me playing) When you’ve earned a lightening bolt or whatever, it’s deeply irritating not to have any choice about where it’s played. I know the main objective of these games is to get players to spend money due to frustration. Thing is tho, I never do that. If I run out of diamonds/lives there are a multitude of other match three games out there for me to swap between. As other have said I’d happily pay for the game, or even a nominal monthly amount if it meant play was genuinely about figuring out the solution to a level, rather than it being geared up to pushing players into making purchases. Being able to join two teams would be 👍🏻. I’d also really like the option to play levels more than once, or there being an additional type of game play maybe, called Relaxation or s’th, where you can play favourite levels multiple times. Finally, and this is me really nitpicking - could the fish ‘say’ some new stuff please? 🙃.Version: 4.5.4

Cost too much to winI love playing this game. I have spent much more money than I ever should have on it to try to win challenges and aqua tasks. I have reached the higher levels now. My biggest issue is when I have to “wait for new level” and can only “look for treasure”. I do not like it because I can’t gain ticket and any bombs or extra lightning boosters are voided as soon as I clear the board. This amazingly seems to happen when I’m close to winning the challenges against other players (collect pearls, lightning bolts etc..). If the makers of this game want us to keep playing, levels should be available or at least allow us to use up remaining boosters and collect tickets after clearing a board. It takes a ridiculously long time to collect the tickets that we need to purchase special fish. I also do not like that we can only win gems with completion of challenges. I can purchase the highest amount of gems won cheaper than paying to win the challenges!! I have deleted this app before. If I delete again, I will not reinstall it! I have deleted this game again. It costs too much for a “free” game. You cannot win in higher levels without buying boosts. What’s more, I removed my credit card profile and won’t let me play this “free game” without one being on file! If it’s “free”, why do I need a credit card on file to play it?!?!.Version: 4.7.5

Not what I thoughtLiked the idea of the game from the ads but what I downloaded is nothing like the ads. I don’t want to play a matching game. I want the pins, sharks, lava... deleting it now.Version: 4.7.0

Terrible purchasing conditions. Paid and didn’t receive my purchase.On more than one occasion I have spent money to buy gems and boosters. The process went through and said enjoy your game with your purchases, but then the purchases were never received. I wrote to who I thought I should, giving them the date and time and nothing was done. A couple of times, a purchase didn’t go through, so I tried again, then I was charged double. Because Buthelezi time I bought it again, all of a sudden the first purchase, which said no money was taken from my account corrected itself. Literally for I g me to ha e paid twice for a purchase. I love this game, but someone needs to look into my account and see what happened. Especially for the purchases I made but didn’t receive at all. Why is it so hard getting in contact with someone who can handle these problems immediately? I went where I was supposed to go, then was told to boot another link, which would never open up. If this happens again, I will fervently find who I need to talk to and get some type of satisfaction. I’ll also bash this game on social media with all my will and energy. I love this game, but I will not be ripped off. Especially when I do and have made a considerable amount of purchases. No other gamer has ever given me this particular problem. Make it right please. Thank you..Version: 3.3.4

Potentially a great game, but too damned expensive.Way too driven by in-app purchases to be truly enjoyable. I mean, really - banning us from playing unless we buy lives or wait half an hour for one turn? And some of the levels are ridiculously difficult, to compel us to buy help. I’ve given you enough of my cash, so now the game is just plain frustrating. Even the infinite lives are often useless because I’m not able to play when they’re on offer. What’s the point of that? And having one bubble left to get in one remaining move, but no bubbles in the field? Literally impossible. I just deleted this game in utter frustration. It could have been a fantastic game - the concept is great and well executed, but just way too greedy..Version: 3.0.0

I loved this game, but it is losing my interestI thought this was a great game, but the farther I get in the levels, the less I get to play. It is so hard to win with it taking days sometimes to get through a level now that I am at Level 393. There is no control of where to put the bonus pieces you earn, they just get dropped into spots where you had a great move you could have made. It is hard to earn bonuses. I move a piece to do one thing, and it does something I didn’t ask it to do. I have not paid for anything yet, so that is probably why it doesn’t want me to win much. The worst part is after you get to play a few times, when you lose, it kicks you out of the game not allowing you to play for sometimes as long as 30 minutes!!! You also can earn 30 minutes of a help, like the bombs, then three minutes later, you get timed out for 30 minutes since you lost a half dozen times. You can’t choose when to use an hour you may have earned so if it is late in the night, you just lose the time. I have never played a game that was so sparse on rewards. The other thing is I like being on a team, but I am pretty useless when I can’t win a level during the days the competition is taking place. I guess if this game wants me to play other games more that won’t time me out so fast and for so long, then they are succeeding. I do love the aquarium and the fish, but that can only go so far with helping me stick with this game..Version: 5.2.0

It’s not really like the addsFishdom is basically another one of those match three games. It’s different to things like Gardenscapes because you can place items wherever in the tank and can buy whatever fish you want. To be honest, that fact that you just buy ransoms fish and items and put them wherever isn’t very appealing to me because I don’t see how my tank could end up looking very good. Also If you were looking for mini games like in all of the misleading adds, this actually has them. You have to play a couple levels and then it’s an option to do. It choose a random mini game (mostly the tunnel and level one) and you play for a prize. Honestly I’d recommend Gardenscapes instead because it has the same mini games and the actual game is a lot better.Version: 5.8.2

No longer having funI have been playing Fishdom for over 3 years and are nearly up to level 4000 and I think I am done. I have been happy to spend money here and there fully realising that it it is fair to pay to have some fun. But I also realise that you only win if the programmers allow you to. You have made it too hard, it is now completely money focussed and so I am not having fun anymore. You need too many coins to collect stars and progress but even that isn’t the problem as I have the time. You have just got greedy, manipulative in your coding and taken the fun out of it and so I am losing interest. A key mistake on your part..Version: 4.6.3

The add is a lieIf I could give it a -5 stars I would.Version: 4.7.0

False advertisingNot at all the same as the ads total false advertising had I known I would not have wasted my time.Version: 4.7.0

Stuck in a loopI have been playing for a couple of years. Always love to play when I have a few moments spare and I especially like playing when Leo is about! Love him! lol But, the latest update I can't comment on, I don't know if my tasks are missing. I had been saving one which had a 2 hour free time reward, for when I had time to play, as other reviewers have mentioned they are missing from theirs, I can't comment bcs I can't open the game! I updated the game but every time I go to open it tells me there's a new update, I click on that but the App Store says I'm upto date , I go back to the game, can't open as it tells me there's a new update. I am stuck in a loop which I can't get out of... reading the other reviews seems that the game has gone downhill anyway with progress only if you pay, so prob not worth it, shame I loved my fish and Leo... but not paying to play.... but would be nice to actually get into the game! Grrrrr.Version: 4.5.3

Just DeletedAfter a year or so playing and on level 2024 I finally deleted this game. Enjoyed playing, didn’t spend money on it very often. Just got tired of the manipulative algorithm that would have you run out of moves or time with just one move to win. Also, annoyed when I still have a few moves but game won’t release the bubbles needed to finish level. So goodbye Fishdom, I won’t miss you and sure you won’t miss me. Also lowered my rating. The following is a previous review since I simply edited to say goodbye. Tiffer roll your eyes at this. Play this game as a way to unwind and mostly enjoy it. I spend some money on it from time to time but not much. A few times I’ve almost deleted it because the game at times seems designed to make you spend money which I get, so I’m patient and stay stuck on a level at times for a few days. Really irritates me when the board is completely cleared and you have a few moves left and need only one more bubble but the game won’t release a bubble, grrr. Those are the times I nearly deleted. I also despise the new reward system of vouchers for designer fish. Yuck, those fish are ugly and I’d rather have the old reward system back where you get power ups. Another ploy to get players to spend. I’m in the 1700s on levels so been playing awhile. Maybe not much longer though if changes keep being made to squeeze me for money..Version: 3.6.0

QuestionJust wondering if it’s illegal for you as a game to advertise game modes and puzzles that we never get to play after we download the game and agree to your terms of agreement..Version: 4.7.0

Not the same as the advertI downloaded this because I saw an advert of a fish trying to get away from a shark and the player as the fish trying to figure out how to stop the shark. The game is just a fish tank with pet fish that you play a matching game to earn coins to buy decorations to decorate the fish tank. Not at all the same as the advert..Version: 3.9.2

Very deceptive Advertising- Just another Match-3!I downloaded this after seeing advertisements on Instagram and Facebook. It looked like an interesting change from the usual match-3 games so I thought I would give it a try. But that’s all it was. Just another Match-3. Where are the interesting loot and treasure puzzles promised by the ad?.Version: 4.3.2

Was betterI’ve been enjoying this game, though the mini games are not as advertised. I have never been asked to save a fish by directing it through various pipes past various perils.... mini games are good, but not what they suggest they may be. My main gripe now though is the what seems like constant requests to ‘like on Facebook’. Very annoying. Also you attempt to say, feed fish, but a screen with the latest games pops up, then your score in another tournament, then telling you how many Pearl you have... etc etc. Please let me click on something and be able to do that first without the directions elsewhere- it’s really annoying. And to the people who says it’s too expensive. I’m on level 961 without paying a penny. You just need to keep trying levels and save power ups until you are really stuck. They give you a reasonable number of free ones and as prizes for tournaments..Version: 5.0.0

Like an underwater BejeweledDear Fishdom Developers, Fishdom is another take on bejeweled. I don’t even understand how Bejeweled is so popular. I personally never really got into the game and after a while they are all the same. But ups to you on the effort. I would pick Fishdom over Cookie Jam, but not over the Family Guy version of Bejeweled. The fish talk so that’s kind of cool. Quit trying to connect me to Facebook! Facebook, does not take care for its users and as long as it doesn’t I will continue my personal boycott. Thank you again, I appreciate your time. Keep up the good work. I am unfortunately going to be leaving the game, after a while it seems impossible to win without purchasing boosters. While I appreciate the fact that you don’t have ads, I would rather watch an ad than pay real life money. I have limited funds and I also realize limited time. Spending money on a game that truly only occupies time is just not worth it for me. The concept and the design while very cool, just encourages one to buy more things you don’t need. I am assuming buying decorations for your fishbowl is just another way to program a person to purchase unnecessary items in real life. Thank you for your time, and take care. ❤️🤗😜..Version: 3.0.0

Things need to change for the better....So I’m sat here trying to progress through one of your leagues, and I’m wasting yet another unlimited lives boost because I physically can’t get passed an EASY level (supposedly)... I am literally tearing my hair out and how rage inducing this game is... and what a pisstake I am experiencing. I am also fed up to the back teeth of your games, Playrix, whereby the only way to get passed a level is to buy stupid amounts of bombs... NO. I uninstalled homescapes because of this very same greed tactic... you make the level nigh impossible to beat, forcing me to pay to play... not happening. I am now permanently stuck on a hard level that I physically cannot beat, and it is overwhelmingly infuriating. Make a fun game that’s not all about profit, ya conning gits! Also also, can you stop automatically applying the unlimited lives boost as everytime I get one, I’m about to go to work or bed, thus unable to use it and it gets wasted. I would like to pick when I want to use it and play the game WHEN I WANT TO, not when you want to, change this immediately, it is annoying beyond belief..Version: 3.3.4

Why no coins as I wait for “levels”?I’m now at level 4621 after having “run out of levels” once already, I saw a refresh and woo-hoo more levels (so now I can generate coins to decorate my tank). And then ... in less than an hour ... I ran out of levels AGAIN and am expected AGAIN to play for keys or some team bs which is really playing the same levels but now they are harder (eg no lightning now less effective alternative) and NO COINS. This is a scam - it costs more to beat these non level “levels” which are otherwise the same as normal levels, but I dont make any progress in the game. Which seems to be what the developers had in mind? I just want to work towards decorating my tanks and finish up my current tanks AT MY PACE - not yours!!! It’s ok if I have to wait for more tanks, but this situation is infuriating as there is no sound reason to stall my progress in tank star achievement without coins for winning these “levels” and this is a waste my boosters. Really super disappointed. I’m not spending another dime on this game! I’ve already spent a lot of money and time on this game and I’m THIS close to just walking away permanently. Stop trying to manipulate the players - if you have unlimited key/treasure “levels” (with no treasure mind you) then you can give us coins for them -no excuses for removing the coins. 😤.Version: 4.3.2

Baiting AppFalse advertising. Avoid this app developer..Version: 4.7.5

What an actual con ***DO NOT DOWNLOAD FOR YOUR CHILDREN***So much psychological ploys being used against you in this game. Firstly, I was advertised a logical problem solving game where the fish was trapped and I had to rescue it with water, without burning it in the lava. Turns out that's just a once every 24 hours side game. The actual game is the tired old candy crush, bubble witch saga sh**e that is revamped year after year! The game is rigged so that you're inclined to pay for tokens for ways to complete the level. As soon as you use a cheat the game is such that you can win it using the allocated moves with some to spare. Try playing it without the cheat and it's near impossible. The combinations just don't happen. Then there's the stupid octopus with his Disney sad eyes telling you, you won't win a token (to buy Easter eggs for your tank 😒) if you don't complete the level first go. Then he says you're going to lose your diamonds and pearls. All to convince you to part with your cash. There's also been this whale piggy bank collecting purple diamonds for most of the game. Once you collect 50 you have 3 days to buy them for £2.99 or else all that hard work will disappear. You need purple diamonds to cheat the rigged levels. Not a good game for children as they might fall for the tricks. I just wanted to play the logical problem solver part..Version: 4.7.5

Nothing like advertisedThe ad for this game shows you trying maneuver a fish safely through obstacles yet it is more like candy crush this app is falsely advertised if it was as advertised I’d play it but the game is lame.Version: 4.6.3

RIP off.......This is a great game but is extortionately priced. I have left a comment before but never heard anything. I am just getting over bilateral pneumonia and have been quite ill and I have to say this game has kept me entertained but at a cost of around £100 over a 3 - 4 week period. My choice I know but sometimes you get dragged along and I do agree with so many of the reviews saying the game is rigged, fixed whatever........take note of the affects of the bombs and how sometimes 1 or 2 squares will be cleared as opposed to many the majority of the time. How many times you are pushed towards purchasing lives, bombs etc in order to go forward but still get nowhere? Time and time again this happens. Maybe I have been silly paying out so much but obviously this is what companies want and extracting money from people is the real aim..Version: 4.6.3

Great game but since the update, the visuals aren’t as sharpI loved this game to the point of addiction. I loved the visuals, fish and their quirky comments and just building the tanks up one at a time. Then the update occurred. Visuals aren’t as sharp as what they used to be. Before they came across more as 3 dimensional now they seem flat, 2 dimensional (I am referring to the game levels, not fish tanks). Also the levels are now ridiculously difficult especially the timed ones. I agree with the other comments that unless you are willing to spend money you can’t complete a level anymore. You are having to use all your resources bombs etc and if they are suggested by the game, I have learned not to accept because you DEFINITELY will not complete it ... it’s a con so you can use your resources and buy more. A game which I literally spend 4 of more hours playing is now half an hour to maybe an hour. The difficulty has spoilt it and I lose interest now after 4-5 tries. It’s a shame because the fish tanks and fish are what I play for as I love the creation side but I can’t move on now because it’s become too hard and the expectation of points you have to gather to earn a star to progress is out of scope..Version: 3.8.2

Click baitNot at all related to the add.Version: 4.6.3

Great game. But far too expensive.I love this game, however I feel it's something of a ripoff. It is impossible to solve a lot of levels without spending money, no matter how many goes you have. And the prices are far too high; it would still be too expensive at half the cost. I don't mind paying something, indeed I'd be happy to pay a one-off amount or even something per month. However as it stands it is ludicrous. I've spent more than enough & don't plan to spend any more. Also you get the feeling some of the levels are fixed until you use a bomb or something & then at times it becomes super easy, whilst at other times the layout, which has been unchanged for all previous attempts suddenly changes & your bomb, etc. is practically worthless. Or you get to having one or two things to clear & as you've already used up a bomb or something you feel you have to spend diamonds for a few more moves or you'll have wasted your power-up. Then surprise surprise you struggle to get a decent move & run out of moves, so spend more money. It's all designed to encourage you to spend money. Please consider a subscription option or a one-off fee or at least lowering the cost/giving you more for your money. It really is a great game, suitable for all ages, but as it stands it really does seem more of a ripoff than a fun game - which is a huge shame..Version: 3.0.0

Too contrivedI have Two issues with this game. First is if you lose and you can use nine diamonds to get five more moves it appears instantly and you can accidentally hit it. I have continued a level about 12 times. 10 of those were by accident when was absolutely no way to win the level in five moves. I think when you hit the button by five more moves the game should ask you if that’s what you really meant. Secondly, There is really no such thing as infinity play. They give it to you, yes, but you’re really only allowed to win one or two levels. When you get to your limit of levels you can win on an infinity play it doesn’t matter whether you are on an easy, hard or super hard level, You’re simply not allowed to win. I was pretty sure that was the case but I tried it on my last infinity play. I was on the easy level and I played it for two hours of infinity play and never won. If I tried to use a booster they would place the booster in the absolutely worst possible place that would actually mess up what you have would have started with if you had not used a Booster. If you came very very close to winning, all Poseidon a lightning bolt would appear in the very spot you getting ready to do something with. Amazingly enough, as soon as infinity play had run out, I won the level. I do not like games that are that contrived..Version: 3.9.0

False advertisingThe game is not how they advertised it. i hate when you wanna play something they advertise and when you download it you will have to first play something else..Version: 4.7.0

Pay to winThis game is practically IMPOSSIBLE unless you use power ups, which is completely unfair since you have to pay to get them, I’ve been stuck on level 29 for the last week and after many tries using power ups, NO AVAIL. Maybe I’ll consider re-downloading once this game picks up its act and makes it POSSIBLE to play again without using money..Version: 3.9.2

False advertisingThe game is good and addictive. But the add was for a completely different game type that you can’t even play. I invested money into this game hoping to speed up my chances and unlock it but it turns out it’s only a puzzle game. Disappointed I fell for it, I suggest adding the survival feature that is advertised..Version: 4.7.5

Artificial difficultyThe fish are adorable. However, I’ve played several match 3 games in my time, and I’ve never seen one that is this difficult to progress in, even during early levels. I’m only on level 34 and have encountered many levels that seemed impossible to complete without boosters (which you can earn in game, but can also be bought with real money). I’d love to continue playing, but the levels are very frustrating, and I’m unwilling to constantly feed the game money to progress. I’m only at the beginning, I don’t even want to think about how ridiculous levels must get later on. Also, it takes far too long to unlock the regular fish and it takes so many tickets to unlock the special fish that I doubt I’ll ever be able to unlock any. If the game were rebalanced to be more playable, and released for $5-$10 (with no micro-transactions) I’d probably love it. In the state it’s in now, I’ll be deleting it. If the devs ever decide to rebalance the game, or introduce an easy mode that’s more geared towards those who just want to collect cute fish and decorate their tanks, I’ll re-download. But for now I’ll stick with Cats Atelier, which also has adorable graphics and characters, but is actually fun instead of frustrating..Version: 3.8.2

WhatI don’t even have the game i’m just so confused as to why in the world the add is not what the game is???? what kind of advertising is that? the add version of the game actually looks interesting too, I would actually play that..Version: 4.7.0

Game is falsely advertisedI downloaded this game thinking it had all different kinds of problem solving challenges when in fact it’s just another candy crush type game. In the advertisement is showed me a fish swimming through a tunnel and the player had to use problem solving to get the fish through the tunnel safely and avoid certain obstacles like fire and sharks which was what attracted me to the game. I downloaded the game and completed a few of the candy crush knock off levels in hopes I’d get to complete a level like the one advertised only to continue to be disappointed. I think it’s an absolute shambles and do not recommend this game to anyone as it’s just the same thing over and over and no where near the game I thought I was getting. If you don’t believe enough in your game to advertise the actual game and have entice people in with a false representation then you should just give up, not falsely represent yourself to get downloads ffs.Version: 4.5.4

Just one change, please!!I can live with the levels, even though some make me need a blood pressure pill... I can evenn live with the non-matching trailer park looking decorations... I can even live with the constant asking for miney, as if you’re homeless on Burboun Street... but for the love of God, please remove Goldflipper, Rachel, & Leo!!! Or atleast give the option to remove or hide them! I have played this on and off for years in between major surgeries. It’s fristrating at times, but like others, I’m addicted to the strategy of the game, as well as decorating my tanks, which I do very often. It is annoying to have to have so many decorations that many look like a flea market, in order to get the stars to move to the next aquarium.. But no where near as annoying as having Goldflipper, Leo, & Rachel in my tanks. For one, we spend money and carefully decide how we want our tanks to look, then we’re blasted with these annoying animals in our tanks, that we have no decision over. And, have you ever tried cleaning your home with a toddler right under your feet, in your way??? THESE ARE MY TODDLERS!!! And I would like to put them up for adoption!!! I have a toddler already. He’s cute, he knows when we’re cleaning, to either clean or play, out of the way of others. These don’t mind at all. Please, I beg you! Don’t make me want to throw my phone... It’s expensive! Just give the option to hide them for OCD folks!!.Version: 5.8.2

Super RiggedDon’t download. Not addictive but when you do get into the game they keep making sure the last 2 boxes to tackle are impossible- SUPER rigged so you spend money to buy more lives, diamonds so you can play on and anything really every game I’ve played they’ve made sure no other candy was the same type next to each other so I wouldn’t be able to do it..Version: 4.7.5

Player Beware...must have $$$ to play!After playing Fishdom off and on for years, I decided to try again. To my dismay, the booster rewards are not plentiful, nor frequent. I’ve been playing the same level, which is identified as hard, for the past week! I don’t know how to get out of this level without buying additional boosters. There isn’t a way to continue the game without finishing the level. I’ve completed all but one task multiple times and must purchase additional lives to continue. If you don’t have extra money to play this game, I can testify you won’t get very far. I’m amazed at the rating this game gets, with it being touted as a game for ages 4 and up. I’m an adult, with a masters degree, and I guess younger players are more capable than me. My message is player beware. Purchasing additional lives are the only way to reach the higher levels. Unless, of course, you have unlimited time to continuously play the same level week after week. Even when additional rewards are awarded throughout play, they drop in randomly and take away moves that are beneficial to the player. So, money and frustration are the outcome of playing this game. I don’t know how other ratings can indicate this game as relaxing. Very disappointed with this newer version of play since the game’s origination..Version: 4.7.5

Can’t play w/out spending $$$$Most “free” games have in app purchases available, and that is accepted. Fishdom makes it virtually impossible to complete levels (even if willing to wait for more lives) without spending “diamonds” which are pretty much (in any meaningful quantity) only available through purchase with real money. There are few chances otherwise. The advertised fun “figure out escape” games are virtually non-existent. They throw one in at the beginning to avoid lawsuits I suppose. You can “win” diamonds for your fishy bank which you must purchase with real money. There was a week time limit on this that I thought I could wait out and not pay. Nope, limit just resets. I admit I have spent money on this because it’s an easy game to play while sick (i.e. doesn’t take too much effort). You can win coins quite easily, but they are essentially worthless other than buying fish and decorations for your aquarium and giving you the occasional diamond or two. It’s entertaining enough, but not worth the cost to play. Even if you’re willing to stop and wait for new lives. Not enough rewards that aren’t worthless coins. When you do earn rewards such as infinite lives for a # of hours you are forced to claim them immediately rather than choose when you’re willing to spend another 2+ hours playing an iPad game. Just my opinion..Version: 4.7.5

Not as advertisedAs I was expecting a fun puzzle game. Not a matching game. I’m so done with the matching games..Version: 4.3.2

Fun… for a costI’m probably going to play this for a little longer, so don’t let me discount the addictive nature of this game. I’d have quit if i wasn’t being amused. That being said, the fact that it’s a naked cash grab isn’t lost on me. Some levels are simply unwinnable without a “boost”. Don’t believe me? I hit roughly level 1100 and every other level is “super hard” or a “challenge” ( that you cannot opt out of…). I spent $50 for this little experiment, so I’m sure some PR guy will reply that no level is unbeatable, but when you win based off of spending, right? So, when the app feels you haven’t spent enough, you get all the levels you can’t win without a boost. And it directly correlates to how much you spend! I had my wife just in this as a control. As soon as I spent $50, I got about 20 levels that were “easy”, whereas she didn’t spend anything and got slammed on those same levels. So we remade the accounts and got to where the app wants you to spend money. This time, she dropped a $20 and got half as many “easy” levels, while I got slammed. Basic idea, they made a fun game that makes it too easy to spend money, and that’s the point. They didn’t make this out of generosity. I’m getting annoyed by the fact that I don’t want to spend $20 a day so my time in Fishdom may be ending soon, but I’ll never fault it for a lack of entertainment value..Version: 5.8.2

Your typical in-app purchase gameTypical as it demands money to be paid on a regular basis if you want to enjoy the game, and if you don’t pay it makes sure you don’t get to the next level as it would not give you the necessary boosters. I think it hopes you get so annoyed and frustrated that you would pay eventually, like many in-app purchase games. When you start playing at the beginning the program gives you enormous amount boosters generated automatically during the game. I’m already on the 400 level, and I paid some money after this honeymoon period, as I was enjoying the game so much. Then the program realised I stopped paying and I get no boosters anymore, but in fact the “no more moves” situation occurs a lot which I haven’t experienced at all at the first 300 levels. So welcome to the 21st century when they try to rip you off online. Sent from my iPad.Version: 5.3.6

Not what it seemsIf I could give it a 0 I would. Game is not what it seems it is a game where you match gems 3 in a row ect to gain pains. Points then go in to the mode where you pick which option to help the little fishy get through the obstacles. It always pops up as an add and I’ve always been curious as it looks cool. I mean for kids may be fun but false advertising.Version: 4.7.5

Duped by the advertI have seen the advert many times and every single time it is about saving the fish, moving blocks etc. It appeared to be an intelligent game but the reality is that it is like a three in a row block game and I have only ever seen three opportunities to play the game advertised but two or three moves and games over then back to matching three in a row, you get 5 lives and when you get past the very simplest levels it is impossible to get past the level, you lose your lives then have to wait to play again for like 20 Minutes or so OR you need to pay. I am afraid that after a while it is mind numbingly boring and it is nothing as advertised. Very disappointing and after posting this review I am deleting the game as doing the same game over and over without the tools to pass unless you pay what is not a small sum gets boring. I wish I had got to play the proper game that is advertised and I think misadvertising is unethical..Version: 5.3.0

More livesIt would be better to have more lives, or not have to wait so long for lives to replenish. A hard level could use up 5 lives in 10 minutes, then you have to wait 20 minutes for 1 more try you lose interest..Version: 4.7.5

False advertisingThe ads are a lie..Version: 4.6.3

BlehBoring when I get stuck on a level for ages because I'm too tight to buy gems. This is when I toss the game aside. It's funny like that. Some levels are just right and some are stupidly difficult forcing you to pay out. Also I don't like the way that when you use your weapons it dumps them on the board all at once.g.Version: 2.5.0

Misleading and a major waste of your money and time.I downloaded the game cause I loved the idea of helping the fish in certain cases during the game it’s now only been two or three and that’s all there is. The level I’m on is impeccably hard for one to pass and it feels they’ve designed levels to make consumers buy packs and whatnot just so you can pass some levels. I’ve purchased some packs cause I’ve only had one move or something like that. But this is becoming a trend even on the Homescapes game too as they also are the creators of this too. I understand they need to make money but how much is too much? It should be a one off purchase to last the entirety of the games life. In hindsight these prices aren’t as bad as the Kardashian game but most things you have to buy a k coins which you have to buy which is expensive. But when did games become so expensive for us consumers???.Version: 4.8.0

UmmI know this is supposed to be a kids game, but sometimes the fish talk to you, which is fine, until it gets creepy. A couple of times I had my fish say to me, “who’s that behind you?” And I actually checked behind me because I was really creeped out. I know the developers probably weren’t intending to make it creepy, but sometimes that was the vibe that I got from the game. A few times I had looked away for a couple of seconds, and then when I looked back, my fish were asking me, “why aren’t you paying attention?” I was really creeped out by that. Please take my advice and maybe try to fix these little creepy messages. Otherwise this is a pretty good game, maybe a little bit too expensive though. Thanks.Version: 4.7.5

Fun game yet challenging sometimesIt's a fun game but sometimes challenging. I think it should take less time to get lives but maybe that's cause it's addictive. What is the deal with asking for lives, you get them and then they disappear? If I have the lives from friends then I should be able to use them, it’ll keep me playing longer and then I’d wait the time for the new lives. For example, my thing just said I had 8 lives I believe, could’ve been 4 (but I have had where it said 8) and it only let me have 2 of them, it took the rest away. That irks me and then I won’t play for a day or 2 cause I’m agitated. Also, I think when you beat the "event" levels and receive an infinity lives for 2 hours, you should be able to start it when you're ready. Once you start you can't stop it, but if I beat a level and then get the unlimited lives for 2 hours, I end up losing it if I can't keep playing for that time period. It's a reward and you can make it to where you can't earn another one until that one is used but, it seems rather unfair that if I beat it and earn that at, let's say 10pm, I can't always stay up until midnight to use it. Or if I beat it at 8am and start work at 8:30am, I can't use it and therefore I lose it. That bothers me quite a bit..Version: 2.5.0

Too good to be trueI have now deleted FISHDOM after first playing and deleting HOMESCAPES and GARDENSCAPES. I was really captivated by the mini games within each program, as they were a way to make points and yet solve puzzles. I found the “match 3” games very addictive, but in the end when I could not get past a certain level, it became frustrating and futile as one ran out of lives within minutes, and one didn’t have any way to earn points to use helpers. Even helpers could not save me! I realise a lot of clever people must play these games everyday, but I think I will stick with card and word games as they are more achievable and relaxing for me. Thanks for your attention to this. Kind regards Kanga.Version: 4.8.0

Great game if it didn’t throw in random hard challenges & high costsI really enjoyed this game initially. However it quickly moved to needing to go fast and drop bombshell everywhere to get through a level . This interrupted the leisurely steady enjoyment it began with. It was a nice relaxing game initially.. which I was after. Then it suddenly throws in a very hard challenge from time to time to interrupt this still further... and seems aimed at using up power ups so you have to purchase more at high cost to get beyond the annoying thing. Developers, you almost have something here if you had the choice if a steady buildup in a more casual mode. Also the ability to reset the whole game and start again if the pace stepped up too much. Not everyone wants adrenaline rushes and tension when they pick up a game. Either create a different game for those like me or add in some options with this one. I think the adrenaline competitive junkies like this game and rate it highly. But is could have been so much more for someone liking its style but wanting a single player relaxing option. At least it makes a change from endless confectionery and gems in other Match 3 games..Version: 4.5.4

Some really irritating aspects to this gameThis could be an enormously satisfying and addictive game but there are some serious obstacles to enjoying it that could easily be removed by the developers. It’s designed to frustrate you into buying extra lives out of sheer frustration at some levels when you get stuck. There are awful timed games where unless you purchase boosters you can get pointlessly stuck and chew up all your lives, which is far from enjoyable, and other games have truly nasty little pieces which are blocked and time out of you can’t match them, bringing the whole game to a premature end. It’s all calculated to make you so desperate to escape the level you will spend proper money buying extra lives and boosters. You get these reward tokens for finishing a level on the first try, with which you can only buy ugly ‘unique fish’ (the ‘real’ fish are much nicer and you can buy with the coins) and you can’t swap tokens for the diamonds you need for lives/boosters etc which would be much fairer. It’s basically deeply flawed and such a shame as it could be a lovely game. So disappointing..Version: 3.4.0

😂Misleading false advertising..Version: 4.7.0

Nothing like the adI see the game you’re posting and when I download it it’s just like every other game with the matching. That’s not cool!!!.Version: 4.7.5

You’ll see why it’s only 2⭐️Okay this game is pretty 😎 but it’s doing some FAKE ADVERTISING! The ads say it’s always mini games and you have to save a 🐠 without ☠️ing it. I want a game like that so you download the game and it brings you to a……fish tank? THIS WAS NOT IN THE AD! You only get a mini game per day! WHAT?! 2️⃣ It’s not like a 👧🏻/👦🏻 is going to pay 💵 to beat a level definitely not ;). YOU 💭 CHILDREN ARE PERFECT??? Because you’re wrong. Its almost impossible to beat a level without having to waste your 💵 to beat the game andddddd there’s a 😔🐙 with its crying 👀 saying yOu wOnT GeT tHe tOkeNs fOr bEAtiNg thE LevLe oN tHe fIrSt tRy or yOu wOnT geT tHe bEtTa bOoSteRs. THE CHILDREN ARE GOING TO BE SAD AND WILL WASTE 💵 JUST TO BEAT THE LEVELS! ThEn they will have no 💵! 3️⃣ The stupid golden 🐳 is TAKING MY HARD EARNED JEMS AND I HAVE TO PAY 2.99 AND IF I DONT PAY IN 3️⃣ DAYS MY HARD WORK IS POOFED INTO A OBLIVION! what?! Please just let me get MY HARD EARNED JEMS and spend it MYSELF! Take away the golden 🐳 k?.Version: 4.9.4

Not what it’s made out to be!Me If you, like me, came here because of an advert on another game and thought you would be solving puzzles to try and help the little fish in distress, then you will be disappointed, like me. It’s basically another Candy Crush clone with the aim to decorate an aquarium! Lots of requests for your money which I would never spend on a game like this. Disappointing. Don’t waste your time..Version: 4.6.3

I like this gameI mean who dosent love fish? It’s a good way to build a digital aquarium whilst playing some mini games. It is enjoyable but you loose life very quickly. And if you don’t complete a level first time it deprives you of vouchers to buy better fish. And then there’s the timer that most games have that make you wait before you can play the level again. Seems to be a game of luck of the draw as most levels seem like you don’t have enough moves to complete it. Especially when it says you still have 19 squares left to erase. I guess if you have the time to invest in the game it’s good if you don’t then this game isn’t for you. It also says everytime to connect to Facebook and get free stuff and invite your friends and all that but I don’t use Facebook. My friends are on my phone not a website. If I choose not to use Facebook I shouldn’t be pestered to sign up just to get free stuff for the game. You spend a lot of time playing the same lever again and again which gets boring after a while. I feel sorry for my fish as I don’t play it for ages after I get bored then I return and my fish are almost dead cos they haven’t been fed. Soo deleted it. Very tedious without micro transactions unless you want to play the same lever 100 times before you beat it..Version: 5.0.3

Good gameSo addictive and overall good game. Personally I like it. Although it did display false advertisement when I was shown an ad for the game which the app calls a “mini game” within the game to gain more coins, you only get to experience that at least 3 times and it completely stops..Version: 4.9.4

Misleading advertisingThe advertising for this game that I see during other games bears no resemblance to this game. There are no pins and levers, no sharks, no traps and no epic fails, other than the game itself which is an epic fail!.Version: 4.6.3

CheatingThere is nothing in the game like an advertisement they are showing for..Version: 4.7.0

Fun, but not always easy to enjoy for freeI like to use the game as a way to decompress after a long day, or when I have some down time between stuff. I love when I get the timed infinite life reward, but HATE that I can’t activate it during a time when I can actually utilize it!! Also, I’m not fond of being forced to accept one that’s awarded to me, when there’s a gold pass reward event going on! Earlier today, I opened it to play for a bit, before heading to an event. I played a couple of rounds on the game, but when I finished with the second round and it took me back to the aquarium screen, I suddenly got a pop up that the gold pass event is going on. The pop up forced me to not have any other choice, but to click all of the prompts that the little penguin character put a green arrow next to, for me to click on. As luck would have it, the last forced prompt I had to click was, you guess it...a 1 hour infinite life reward, that I couldn’t even enjoy due to time constraints. Had I been able to have the choice of whether or not to click through that event prompt, I could have come back when I had time to actually enjoy using the reward and play the game for a while. If we earn the reward, we should be able to decide when we want to activate it..Version: 5.3.0

Totally agree with..Great game but far too expensive.Very frustrating for kiddies to play. ( I’m an adult and got bored with trying so hard) Don’t download it will only incur disappointment and upset when they can go so far and not progress. For two days and about 50 attempts I tried to beat the timer at level 54. So many people review way too early in a game so I waited to give an honest opinion. I enjoyed building the tanks up, it’s colorful but not very interesting once done. There doesn’t seem to be a great purpose. It’s very similar to a thousand other games. You shouldn’t have to get in touch with a developer for tips and advice on how to beat levels. If you haven’t the diamonds to buy bombs you can’t move on. If you have used up your stack of resources you cannot move on. You can get extra resources by completing tasks such as feeding the fish but this could take you several days if not to complete. Seriously don’t waste your time and effort..Version: 3.9.2

Good fun, but...I really love playing this game, but there are a few things that are quite annoying about it. As others have mentioned, the ridiculous 'cost' of buying extra turns. Then there's how when you lose a level you lose ALL the boosters at once, even though it took you many levels to accrue them all and could have also won lots of levels in row whilst on the top level of boosters. It would be far better if you lost the boosters at the same rate they were accrued - one per level. Finally, the squids. I hate how the game is stolen from you unless you fork out 18 gems to 'rescue' the squids. Please lose that whole concept..Version: 4.7.5

WHY?I love this game, but...various aspects are really annoying. If you use bombs, at the start of a game, or any of the things you’ve worked so hard to get, WHY can’t YOU decide where to put them, rather than them being placed randomly, and having no control over where that is? Also, the switch hand, why do pieces have to be next to each other in order to switch? My daughter plays this game on her own iPad, but infrequently, and at a much lower level. She is offered bigger packages, but for a much cheaper price. It seems that the more you play, the more you’re charged for packages. Also, if you choose to ‘play on’, and buy 5 moves, but complete the game in 1 extra move, Why are the 4 remaining moves taken away? I’ve accessed 5 moves, not 1. There should be a facility to bank the moves you don’t use. The fishy bank.... I have 50 diamonds in there, which I can only access if I choose to buy them back?.. why? The gold, silver and bronze coupons are useless. I have lots of one kind, but not enough( of another kind, so have very limited option to use them. When the game is in progress, why can’t you have the option to use the bombs etc which you’ve earned, and which you are offered at the start of the game?.Version: 4.1.5

Some levels are so hard you can’t pass if you don’t payI like a simple game to enjoy and play, but when some levels are so ridiculously hard (and not even labeled as such) and the set up of the pieces never fall even close to giving you a a remote chance of passing unless you have bonus bombs etc to use (and if you do have bombs etc you need to select everything you have (not just one option - ALL of them) in order to have even the slightest chance - even then you’re likely to fail)... well it makes me consider deleting the game and finding something better. I want to enjoy the game, not feel anger and frustration over what should be enjoyable..Version: 3.2.0

This game isn’t good for kidsIf I could I’d rate this no stars. I was playing the game and the turtle came over and said “new fish on bestgorecom” I know what the site is and I don’t care personally I’ve seen my fair share of gore videos but that’s besides the point. Young stupid kids will not know what that means, or anyone in example who has been living under a rock. Will go to that site and be mentally scarred. People think gore is cool and trendy, but you’re so wrong. It changes you inside, when I watched my first video it changed something inside of me. But now I’m fully addicted to these videos. I just find it disgusting that a game that looks heavily targeted towards kids would put that in their game..Version: 5.6.5

Mini Games?Nothing like the ads. It’s basically candy crush..Version: 4.8.0

Great for a while, but then gets too difficult without paying to simplify levelsHaving been playing this for a while, really enjoying the challenge but now at the point where I’m not able to win without paying to get items to make the levels easier. I could live with levels being difficult, but not impossible and having played the same level 15 times without beating it, I’m getting bored of the same level so in summary, enjoy the game but nice you reach a certain level expect to either start paying to win, or spend a long time on the same level trying. Also some of the free items do not appear to be as random as they seem, for example why do I usually only get the freebie with one item and not the good ones with two. Simple stats would tell me I should get the better items more frequently if they are truly random, so I suspect they are weighted to give less free items, but I could be wrong..Version: 4.9.0

Still Stupid!Ticks me off that you get 2 bombs and they always get placed so close together that you explode one and they both explode,.Version: 3.1.0

Change to previous reviewsWhilst i originally gave this a five star rating and playing continually i have found of late that i do not enjoy it so much. I agree with other reviewers who are saying about the increasing costs, if you give in to move forward. What i have found most annoying is that it takes an absolute age now to achieve the three stars to unlock the next aquarium. You have to constantly get more ornaments etc so that the scene is overflowing and cluttered looking - not good. Also, while i am having a rant, i am fed up with the constant competitions for pearls etc where any value you build up in a game is lost if you dont buy extra moves etc and the fact that diamonds now dont go into your scoreline, no they go into a bank and you cant get them out with game coins, no you have to pay cash to get them. Initally with this game i was more than happy to spend a little cash occasionally because i feel the developers deserve to profit from such a good product, but enough is enough, you are getting too greedy..Version: 3.3.4
