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.

Subtle Racial Element

I love this game and have played it for a while. I have noticed, however, when the darker skinned man is waiting for his food, no matter how quick you are, ALWAYS grumbles when he is served his food. I have tried preparing and servicing him first despite having other customers and he always makes an unsatisfactory noise. I am not quite sure why this is the case but I would advise the creators of this game to change that character's response.

Lost my progress and they won't refund me

This is game is super fun, but difficult to get beyond a certain point without paying money for gems. You can go forward, but you get stuck playing the same rounds over and over again to earn the gems. So I purchased some gems thinking you know what? These developers do deserve to be paid and I get my $20 worth in the amount of time that I spend on the game. Well, I spent a total of $34.30. Within hours, I somehow lost all my progress only to go to their help and find out it is a known issue when using Windows. I contacted customer service and was told that they can't fix it. I asked for a refund and was refused. I was told that I could get a credit in Gems and coins, but that they don't refund money. Why would I want that if it will continue to lose my progress? I think it is fraud to knowingly charge someone for something that you know doesn't work. Shame on you people.

Too much consumerism
