Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Utter Con Targeted at making you Spend Money.

The game at first seemed fun. However it soon becomes apparent that its directly targeted at getting you to pay to play. Every pop up between rounds is aimed at special deals and offers. You never get the 5 full lives bonus if you already have lives left. Some of the levels are ridiculously difficult with deliberately targeted incentive to get you to spend money. It's really become a money/income targeted game. Thoroughly Disappointed and Angry at this Greedy Company attempting to fleece players

At the beginning this was a fun game to kill time with however the game thru time has been modified for money. As you progress up just one game can take weeks to win making it boring, while waiting for the algorithm to give you a win.
