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.

Worst game ever (ugly and filled with scamming and hacking, money focused)

Ugly game , horrible avatars , drama, scamming, hacking, ignorant community. Totally Money Obessed and the game doesnt look that good. The avatars look like babies and the clothing is poor. The Moderation is very unsafe and there are a LOT of bulyling and scamming customer service is terrible and the company never listens to its player base. I do NOT recommended this awful app.

Not for the faint of hearts

This game is extremely expensive, people are selling items way too over priced. I definitely do not recommend this for your child or any other ages. Unless if you’re rich, go ahead, I’d still warn you. Profiles from what I’ve seen on the game shown their nudity, thinking it’s a dating tinder app or either Instagram. Most users on the game aren’t very friendly, most are just toxic and you can’t never get along with other users. I’ve been on this game for two years now, totally given up. I’m not going to spend another £320 of gold of things I’m not going to get or want. Stay away from similar gambling games, not worth a minute of your soul.
