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.

Acceptable for adults, dangerous for children; Ultimately Gambling engine

This game is simple and fun, but beyond the core mechanics, all the development of this game focuses on compelling players to pay very large sums of money. Not every player will fall into this trap; most do not, but the goal of the game is to lure the few susceptible players that will spend thousands of dollars every year into habituated spending. The ideal target for this tactic is a child, so I strongly believe allowing children to play this game is as safe as allowing a child to play with a pack of cigarettes or wander around a casino with their college fund in their pocket. Remember, if you create an account, it will have instant access to online purchasing, so unless you are sure your child can resist marketing designed by behaviourists , there is a large risk of allowing a corporation to groom your child into a gambling addict. I play and enjoy the game, but I would never let my kids play it.

Waste of time, and money

This game takes advantage of kids and adults by preventing players game progression by requiring money for crystals to compete. Game developers should be fired for fraud waste and abuse of people.
