love the game hate frustrations
on March 21, 2013
I would give FF five stars if I was rating only the game but....looking at the whole package, the best I can say is it has problems that seriously take away from the fun. This game is what I call a money teaser as there is very little that can be played for free...even though it is advertised free. Each day we play, as in a 24 hr period, you get to spin a slots machine. Mostly you get 3 ones or occasionally a two and a one. It takes two coins to play one round. A round consists of 3 turns, five questions each turn. At the end of the round, if you are the winner, you get a chance to earn more points, not coins., with five more questions on free play. If you lose, you have to pay one coin if you want to do free play. The only time you get free coins other then the daily slots spin is when you earn enough points to advance to the next level. For this you get two coins and can play another round.
Since daily spits spins yield 3 coins and on a lucky day 4, you usually play just one round and sometimes two and at most 3 if you get two coins for advancing to another level.
Rounds seem to last less then five minutes but, i have not timed it. As with most games, as you advance in levels, it requires more points to reach the next level then it did in previous levels. As you can see, the fun is very very short lived and very frustrating if you want to have more fun! I refuse to spend money on the coins. I did look at coin prices and said no way!!! Even if you buy coins, in my opinion, you don't get you bang for the buck. I know my gaming addiction is totally out of control if I start spending money on coins!
I don't like to be teased like this with a fantastically fun game and have it over just like that! I guess they are in the business to make money. I would rather pay $5.00 or so to buy the game in the store and forget the stupid coins. Then buy the game again next year.
