Not a screen goes by without some kind of social media integration icon bouncing up and down like a Jack Russell friggin terrier, urging you to spam all your friends with links back to this app.

I liked Alchemy, then I read that Doodle God was even better, so I downloaded the free version from the Google Market. It worked well on my Evo 3D, and when I checked Amazon and found it available here, I decided to purchase it.
Unfortunately, Amazon's version of the game is VERY far behind Google's. The version Google has is 126.96.36.199, Amazon's is only 1.3. It appears Amazon's version hasn't been updated in over 5 months! Alas, this version does NOT work properly on my Evo 3D.
It's a great game, but don't buy it from Amazon, get it from Google if you ever hope to see updates. I only hope Amazon will give me my money back.
EDIT: The game finally got updated on Amazon, but now it's utterly broken. This version has actually been pulled from Google by the developer because of all the problems, but slowpoke Amazon still has the defective version.
2nd EDIT: There is a new update which supposedly fixes the force close issue (I haven't tried it out yet). The current version is 188.8.131.52, which actually puts it ahead of Google (which still reports version 184.108.40.206) at the moment. Only time will tell whether the developer will keep the Amazon version up to date or if it will fall behind like in the past.

I have a few problems with this app.
* First, it did nothing for me personally. I just considered the game play to be mechanical, random, and boring.
* Second, so will kids like it? It doesn't matter. Unless you want to school them on age inappropriate language and other content. If you want a developer to control when you expose your kids to certain concepts and language instead of having input on that yourself, go for it.
* Third, there has been some discussion that the Amazon version of this app is waiting for an update to catch up with the Google version. I'd be a bit leery about that. The permissions for this app don't appear bad at this time. But this dev has been rightfully slammed for intrusive permissions in some of their other apps, which include things like both fine and coarse GPS location and in app purchases (in apps aimed at kids). I prefer not to have this app updated and find that they've slid in the intrusive permissions that permeate their other apps. For example, those intrusive permissions are STILL IN Doodle Farm three months after Amazon customers made it plain that we don't appreciate them. So I have no confidence that this or any other app from this developer won't grow those permission in an update.
I downloaded the thing to take a legitimate look for writing a review, but it's going right back off my account as soon as I submit this.

Doodle God is one of the worst games I have seen yet..Match the elements to create your own world or go on mini Quests..First, it forced closed on us two times during the opening sequence..Boring and repetitious gameplay matching the same elements or tiles over and over..
Second, you have Facebook ads and IAP which you have parental controls to turn off thankfully..Played for over an hour and highly inappropriate for children...We picked Santa Claus's Quest which the storyline goes he is running out of time and you must help him make presents..My child was excited...This is what we ended up creating during gameplay, a bottle of wrapped Vodka, Beer, Alcohol, Rum, a bottle Tequila, and wait a nice bottle of green Absinthe (Wormwood) and nice package of weapons....Then with each wrapped alcoholic bottle we learned a new phrase for school...BITE MY SHINY METAL A**......This is all on Santa Claus's gifts..You decide what you want your child to learn because the game says it's for all ages...
I am disgusted...

Have you ever been so bored that you are having a hard time keeping enough tissue around to wipe the drool off your face? Tired of playing Mahjong and solitaire on your computer? Then you might be so computer illiterate that you could enjoy this game.
The object of this game is to touch two different pictures in the vague hope that you might get a new picture. When you do, you can then use that picture to combine with your old ones to make still others. Oh the joy! Rapture!
Personally, I quickly discovered that the most efficient use of my time was to match each picture item by item until something new popped up. There was no rhyme or reason to it. Just keep clicking until something happens. By that point, I was about 30 minutes into the game and made the decision to delete it never to look back. And now I have written this review so that you need not suffer. Aren't I nice?

A bit too abstract, time consuming and random for my tastes. The game consists of combining "elements" to produce new things. The issue is that the combinations don't always make sense and the elements aren't always appropriate.
The elements vary from the concrete like glue and glass to the abstract like death, life, and order.It is open to a lot of interpretation.
"Fortunately" help is available, in the form of in-app purchases to get help creating new stuff. That, to me, is extremely objectionable in a paid app. I can accept purchasing add-ons to extend a game once it has delivered everything I originally paid for but if there is a price to be paid then I should be able to access all that I paid for without paying any more. (I realize that I'm submitting this review when it is a FAOTD and that shouldn't make any difference as it will be the same game tomorrow.)
While there is nothing bad in the software (such as malware or viruses) for me there is little in the game to recommend it even when it is free.

Problem fixed great game
Same problem. 28 elements and force close. Hope you fix this soon so you can get 5 stars.
In your comments you asked for 5 stars to keep the updates coming. I think if you update it you will get the 5 stars coming.

I downloaded this game despite reading all the reviews, good and bad. After downloading, even before I opened the app, it made me crash out of every other app that i opened. MAJOR flaws need to be fixed. I always give the "FAOTD" a chance. What the heck, they are free. But you couldn't pay me to reinstall this one. I can't give any input on the gameplay or graphics or anything else for that matter. Only that it really messed with my tablet. I play on a kindle fire HD. Hope this helps. Cheers !!!

Maybe I was over expecting. I had at first an idea that this may be like the old classic Populous. Ah, no. Logical (sort of) tile combining.
The usual 2 Privacy permissions, Phone ID and USB - obviously developed for phones, as only portrait mode is available. No malware is present currently (I say currently as apparently there was an issue a year ago).
IAPs are present, but thankfully demarcated by the universal "shopping cart" icon. You start off with 1000 game coins to purchase hints or unlock side games with, and timed regenerating hints keep you going without being overly tempted to buy hints.
Rather nice artwork, pithy remarks with each successful combination, logical connections (kind of) even with the more outlandish combinations (weapons + void = deathstar), and apparently daily renewed Artifact mini game along with unlockable puzzles, quests, and more mini games.
The reason I don't sound excited is because... I'm not. I played for an hour, got 28 elements, completed the first mini-game, and I'm done. Half the time was spent in random mish-mash; once in a while, a brilliant flash of insight would lead me to an interesting combination (sun + glass for a vampire's gift, I r smrat!), but after all that, I'd rather play something else other than trying to combine tiles to make more tiles to only then spend hours trying combinations of tiles to get another... ya. Your Mileage May Vary.

I downloaded this even with all the bad reviews cause I thought it couldn't be that bad. Well they were right. It was working fine then a force close popped up and now I can't play at all. Can open the game and click to play but then it closes. was really liking the game too. Hope you fix it soon!
