Overall good game! Some issues/suggestions.
All in all, this game is a very great game. It is a very fun and different style of gameplay then what I’m used to. It’s addictive nature is what sells the game. The ads are fine by me, I simply play without internet. (Although it could get a bit annoying but I understand it. It’s a free game.) My only problem with this game is the energy system. I don’t understand it. (I have reason to believe that it stops players from speed-running the game.) The system seems more punishing to players that make a wrong move or swipe on accident, rather than being a balancing aspect of the game. Most games that have a energy system are very good games that limit themselves by preventing people from playing constantly. Some suggestions/additions I’d make would be, music for arcade mode (It gets a bit quiet). And maybe a level creator? It sounds like a stretch, but this game has created the perfect platform for creators to develop and publish levels for other TOTM players to enjoy. And this can be balanced: limit level creation to only premium members who spend money on the game. (It is a free game, but I understand the pricing for premium) Although I’d favor that PLAYING fan-made levels should be available to everyone. But overall, a very great game. The aesthetic is fun to look at, and the game is a challenge that requires patience and some insight. Nice job.
Problems I experience
by Typicallbesson(Why don't we)
This games is really, really addictive. I have very minimum space on my phone and I decided to try this app out. I deleted it (due to amount of space it took up) but then quickly regretted my decision. Very addictive game. The only problem(s) I experience are the ads. After I complete a stage, an add pops up and they are usually 30 seconds - a minute long. This gets frustrating because I can glide through the stages in under a minute. This really is frustrating. Another problem are the lives. When I'm playing a stage and fail, I loose a life. I would play the game more, but loosing a life every other stage or so, takes all my lives away in under 10 minutes. I just wish that we didn't need to rely on the lives. My last problem that I have experienced are the power-ups. For example, during the tutorial, the directions say to double tap the screen or tap the shield in the bottom left corner. Sometimes I go to fast and accidentally double tap, therefore wasting my shield when I didn't need to. The double tap is a pretty good idea, but not for a game like this where you may accidentally double tap. This game is really, really, really fun and addictive (quite literally) and I hope all the problems get sorted out to make this the dopest game of the year.

A fun little game but has its problems
by Mr. Person 12346890
The game itself is fun, I like the movement, the traps, the sounds, the Pac-Man-esque style, but I have a few problems with it. For one, after around level 100, there are a few challenging levels, but pretty much from then on every level was repetitive and too easy. I preferred the challenge rather than just flying through level after level, putting limits on myself or else I would beat it too fast. Another problem is the ads: I know it’s how you make your money but showing an ad after literally every game is excessive. I watched some videos to open chests (because that’s pretty much the only way to finish the “open X chests” challenges without waiting for days on end) so having more ads on top of that is annoying. Finally I have issue with the “diamond membership” that you and a bunch of other games have been offering lately. $7.99 a WEEK for what, 4 masks you’ll never use, 400 coins per day, and no ads, which on any other game would cost like $3.99 once? Do you really think this game offers almost 4 times as much value as, say, Netflix, which charges like $9 a month? I would pay $7.99 ONCE for these things, maybe. I bet you offer the 3-day free trial so people sign up for it and forget to cancel, too.
Having finished all the levels, I can say all in all that this is a fun game that could have been better executed if more effort was put into the levels and it weren’t muddled by greed.
I rated this three stars because it is to easy it is hard to understand the concept of It being this easy so I feel that the screen needs to be a little tougher maybe not you are not too easy maybe like just right for kids 12+ something is for kids 12+ it should be harder for the older kids in the younger kids so saying this I feel that it should ask you for your age and then based off of the age make it just right for that age so like if you’re 12 it should be hard if you’re up 4 it should be easy It should be based off their age because it’s just right for that age and they should be able to change your aid my a it should be based off the age because it’s just right for that age and they should be able to change The age of the person gets older like I’m 11 so it should be harder for me than a four-year-old and then like if you’re 12 it should be harder than a five-year-old so based off whether you’re 12 11 or10 whatever you should be able to change your age that way if you’re four and then you turn 10 within six years then that age should be hard enough like just rain but not harder than it should but this is too easy for me being an 11-year-old so I’m just saying that it should I ask for the age also parents just so you know this game has certain add to it I’ve seen that are age-appropriate starting from the age 8+ year-olds so just make sure that you know that the ad can be inappropriate
DEVELOPERS PLEASE READ!!!
by Dylan Cookies XD
I love this game and I got it only 3 weeks ago and have gotten half of the masks and beaten all of the campaign levels. Now here’s my question... Is there any way to make a level editor? I’m probably not the only one to have asked for this but am definitely one of the most enthusiastic for this to (hopefully) come. If there was an editor I would definitely consider buying the Diamond Membership and would enjoy the game much more. I would also share the game to all of my friends and recommend it to anyone I know. Now I understand if you guys will ever add this that it will take some time (2-3 weeks dependent on how many people are working on this add-on) and I will be very patient in waiting. Please, if anyone in the Playgendary team could get back to me, I would love to inform you on what else I would like added because I can see a very big change (better version) of this game to come. All you guys would need to do is to make a server capable of handling millions of people uploading their own levels... not that hard right??? Well that’s all for now, thanks for making this stupendous game!
(As a side note please add all the fractures that are currently in the levels. My favorite of them is either the rotation of 90 degrees or the blocks that appear after having been touched.)
I need new levels please
I love this game, it’s difficult but not to the point where it gets frustrating. The graphics are cool, the music and sound affects are well done, the enemies are unique from other games and each other, Tomb of the Mask is definitely one of my favorite games.
The arcade mode is fun but I’m not really the type of person who can enjoy trying to beat my own high score over and over again. I love the story mode though. It’s really entertaining and since you only have a certain amount of lives, it keeps me from getting bored. It wouldn’t be as fun if I could just zoom through the levels without much of a challenge.
I don’t have any problems with the game at all actually. The ads get a bit annoying but you can just turn off your WiFi. My only dissatisfaction comes from the fact that I played through all 200 levels and I don’t really have much else to do on the game since I’m not a huge fan of the arcade mode. So please release new levels as soon as you can. Or at least give us an update as to when they’ll be out. I hope you read this, thanks.
Bad business practice
This game is a lot of fun. It has a great art style and I have thoroughly enjoyed playing it, however that doesn’t excuse it from the two major flaws it has. The first major flaw is the ads. It shoves ads down your throat every chance it gets, and it gets really annoying. I’ve gotten to the point where I turn on airplane mode just to be able to avoid them. The second major flaw is the membership program the game has. I’ve never seen anything like it in a smartphone game and it kinda scares me. The game allows you to pay 7.99 for 4 masks (in-game skins), 500 coins per day, and unlimited energy all of which, in my opinion, should be free. The membership program really doesn’t offer anything substantial and has no use of being in the game, it’s just blocking you from things that should already be included in the game, plus, the price is just absurd. Paying 8 dollars a week for something that gives you a few items that should naturally be in the game is just awful business practice and shows that most companies don’t care about the consumer anymore. This game is lots of fun and I would definitely give it 4 stars if the developers showed they cared about the consumer and didn’t have these awful, greedy, practices within their game. The saddest part about this though is that everybody just gobbles this game up and gives it a perfect rating, not even noticing what’s going on with the game.
Joy, with Complications
This is a great game with adventurous levels. Though there are many complications while playing. These include that when playing a level, if a gamer would be needing to swipe quickly the they would receive problems. One is that while the gamer was swiping, sometimes, the game understand that they were swiping at a different direction. This causes the player to either continue by watching an ad, pay game coins, or restart the game. Another swiping problem is how when a player swipes quickly, the game could understand that they are double tapping. This results in putting the shield on, which wastes it for when the gamer could need it. Another problem is also how every two hundred levels, the game would say “NEW ADVENTURES
ARE COMING”. This causes the player to wait until the new levels come. Though new levels are coming, like other games the Tomb of the Mask game developers should be working on new levels every day; since gamers finish levels quickly. Though this game has many complications and frustrations, it also has it’s joys. The levels are adventurous, and make the player work harder on each one. Though in between the harder levels the game gives players a little break by adding a few easier levels.
Extremely fun, but the ads kill it.
I absolutely love this game. It’s one of my favorite mobile apps so far. The fast paced movement, combined with the skillful dodging of obstacles and collection of dots, makes it a fun platformer. One of the only flaws with the game, however, is a deal breaker: the ads.
Now, I know free apps have to run adverts in order to stay afloat. I get that. But the frequency at which ads are shown are a bit overkill. Here’s an example: at the end of a level, you’re given an option to watch a video ad to earn a free chest. Now, if you take this offer, you’re given the item and sent on your way. But if you pass and just tap ‘next stage’... it shows you an ad anyway. This is a bit ridiculous in my opinion, especially since this means you have to watch an ad after EVERY LEVEL. And the “diamond membership” is downright predatory. $8 a WEEK?! That’s $24 a month, just for a few masks and other superficial benefits. This, along with other IAPs, are shown suddenly, without warning in places where you’re just tapping through the menus to start a level; this makes it extremely easy to accidentally confirm to purchase one of these IAPs, another shady practice.
All in all, great game, but the way the developers handle adverts and IAPs is pretty anti-consumer.
Ads + Money
by Potterhead fan
I personally loved this game. It was nice and the levels are good and fun. It took me a very long time to get to fifty, and I’m still getting to 100. As nice as this game is, I hate about half of it. Why? Because the ads are just plain stupid, annoying, and costly. Every tie. You die, or complete a Level, you go into an ad. Immediately. It’s stupid and that’s not it. Every time I go into the app it shows the title screen. Then immediately and ad for a fishing game pops up and I accidentally click on it. This game is not even using a clever strategy to get you to buy games, it is just plainly trying to get you to click on them by accident. After I click on the ad, nothing happens. Until I get into a level. Then while I’m PLAYING the level, the fishing game’s AppStore page pops up. Not only is it late, it has costed me so many lives it’s unbelievable. I’m still not done. Then it is the costly in-game prices. Not gonna lie, 8$ a week is the most stupidest, frustrating, outrageous thing I will ever see. Or maybe not. Then, in order to stop seeing ads about every 15 seconds, I have to pay 20 something dollars, MONTLY!!!!!! I have seen no ad purchases on other games. They are ranging from 5-8 dollars. Overall, I like this game, but all this side nonsense makes it have a 3-star rating
