The ads are crazy!
by Lori Simon Gray
The game overall, it’s good. But you know what makes this game worse? The ads. For starters, it feels like if I click one button and a 30 second advertisement turns on which makes me lose my turn. This especially happens during a triviathon. It’s EXTREMELY annoying. Once I had a really good score on a triviathon and guess what happened next? A 30 second ad turns on making me lose my score. Secondly, some of the ads are inappropriate especially for young children. Now this statement was inspired by another review I saw earlier, so don’t think I’m copying anyone. Now I don’t want to get into details but let’s just say some of the ads are unnecessarily...gross. If I owned this app, I would reduce the ads just by a LOT. And I would actually care about the people who play this game and not the money. This is just sad. I read some other reviews and the game owners replies and all the reply’s basically say is “ oh we will try to help” or something other. And I haven’t seen a difference. AT ALL. Yes, I am saying what other reviews are saying but all I’m trying to do is spread the message. Remove the ads! In conclusion, the game overall is good but the ads are very unnecessary. Especially the 30 second ones. Please reply to this review I would like to see your response and if you really remove at least some of the ads. I have only seen you reply to two reviews. So again, remove the ads!
Please fix this
I like Trivia Crack, I think it’s a cool app, but there are some things that hinder it from getting five stars. I understand people need to make money through adds. I’m not saying there are too many adds, there are just adds where there shouldn’t be. When playing Triviathon you answer questions non STOP within 10 seconds and if you answer a question wrong or didn’t answer it in time you start again. Seems pretty legit to me, so when playing you shouldn’t be interrupted by adds that make you lose your streak and keep you from getting a higher score and high rewards right? I’m fine with adds but when they pop up and make me lose a round that shouldn’t have been lost, that makes me upset. Please don’t show me adds when I’m in a middle of a game, I’m sure no one wants that. Show me adds when I lose or before I even play. Don’t have pop up adds that take 15 seconds to show and get rid of when I only have 10 seconds to answer a question. This is very frustrating and almost makes me want to delete the app, again! I gave y’all another chance but it seems like things still need to be fixed. Please take this into consideration, I believe it’ll make this app a lot better and will reward itself 5 stars.
Ads, Lives, etc. What happened to just playing the game?
Once you play a certain amount of games (a very low amount) you run out of lives. Then, you have to wait an hour until your lives refill. Dumbest thing ever!!!! You need to get rid of that. I’m thinking about deleting app now. If it’s not fixed soon, I’m done. DO NOT PLAY IF YOU DON’T LIKE WAITING!!!!!!!! Also the ads are terribly long and often. The game is fun itself, 5 stars when you take out the non-trivial stuff like ads and lives. It ruins the game. Good trivia and categories. Good design. I like this game but all these problems makes it fun but annoying. Please fix it. We all know you’re going to say “thanks for the feedback” but you’re not thankful for it at all. As the “I need space” review says in its last paragraph, you ignore/delete the bad reviews and keep the good ones. You don’t care what we say. It is pretty much a scam, yeah, because all you do is fire an ad at us every question. “Buy this app”, “go to this store”, “buy this item”. Uh, no thanks. Sorry, but, we bought this app to play games, not to buy stuff. So stop asking us to. We don’t care. DUMB STUFF. Actually, forget what I said before. Even if you like waiting, don’t download. You’re gonna end up deleting it right away anyway. You’re going to end up leaving a bad review.
The Looong Ads
The game is great, but what’s up with the ads that just sit there with “Install Now” on the screen and never go away. I left it up for 5 minutes and no X ever showed up, it just sits there and I have to close the game out just to get rid of it. The 30 second ads are bad enough, but this is ridiculous. Im uninstalling this game.
Responding to Developer Response:
Thanks for the generic response that you guys will do nothing to improve gameplay for free players. Eventually, people will get tired of the long ads and you will maintain a base set of paid players, which will in itself dwindle after so long because for every paid player, you have at least five free players. I understand ads help keep a game going that the majority of players it has are free playing. But your ads are longer, and more annoying than any other game out there. You give similar responses to anyone who complains, basically stating that you will change nothing and focus solely on pleasing advertising instead of customers. You pull wiki questions and answers, giving all of us, both paid and non-players a mediocre set of questions in an attempt to provide good content but toss it all away for a few quarters of pestering ads. Lowering my rating to two stars based off your uncaring response.
SO MANY AD’S
Developers you might not read this but I must put out there is that you half to stop putting so many ads in here it’s honestly really annoying i just got this game 20 minutes ago and I am already thinking of deleting it I like the game but not the ads they just keep popping up and it’s really unnecessary for so many ads so please do something about it cause I am considering on deleting this game and by the way the ads aren’t making people want to play the game shown on the ads it really just making the person watching them get irritated and want to delete the game and if this is someone else reading this don’t download this game unless you know that there aren’t these many ads and also make the game safer you shouldn’t just be able to talk to random stranger around the world like what if some creep just starts talking to you and I also don’t like the fact that my email is my name I actually feel like somebody is going to hack my account and I have encountered a hacker hacking my account and I had to change it so if you are reading this please don’t download this game thank you🙄
Awesome game, but it needs to be improved.
I enjoy doing trivia so I can learn new facts. I thought this game would be satisfactory, but there are a never-ending string of ads that appear throughout the game. There will be an ad if you guess the incorrect answer. I know there is a version of this game that does not include ads. However, it is not free and I honestly don’t want to spend money on some pixels. Many people cannot buy the “No ads” version either. I think that this is a major complaint and problem. I have read many of these complaints that have been posted a year or so ago, but apparently, the people that made this game are not doing anything about banning adds. I think that the ads should be eradicated in the free version of Trivia Crack because there are many complaints about it and it is frustrating for some people. I might delete this app soon and find a better trivia game to play that is free, and has a few ads or none of them. To be honest, I am a patient person. However, I do think that this game has too many ads. If there were fewer ads, I think this game would be even more awesome. Thank you for taking your time to read all of this is you did. I hope you have a nice day :)
An egotistical sellout of a game
by Screw you good sir
Like pretty much everyone, I had this game a long time ago and re-downloaded it with some friends. The depths this game has sunk to is astounding. First of all, the amount of ads is shameful. I've never seen an app sell out this hard. Every missed question, every screen change, pretty much anything you do results in an ad, and a lot of them are 30 seconds long. On top of this, I've experienced ads that appear in the middle of a timed game, and some that even make me exit the app, resulting in an automatic loss. It'a really disappointing to think that these developers care about their customers as little as these developers apparently do. They have no pride in their work, no loyalty to fans, all they care about is money. Speaking of loyalty, the developers are trying to fein interest in the desires of their fans when you look at the app's reviews. Many reviews apparently have feedback from developers, but if you dig a bit deeper, you find that it's only a few responses, copied and pasted over and over again. All in all, the game was good and fun at the beginning, but it got corrupted and monetized by the creators somewhere along the way. At this point they might as well be EA. Honestly I feel stupid giving such a pathetic development staff my time by playing the game, and writing such a long review.
I loved this app so much!! I had so much fun with it to begin with, I mean I played with all my friends and it also taught me new things that I had never knew! I thought it was an awesome app and I think u will to the only problem I’ve had from the start is... AD’s!!! They are so annoying and popped up all the time like when I was trying to click on a game then once I got on the game before I would spin, after and if I answered a question wrong one would pop up(so basically I was already watching an ad to spin!), it really was annoying because then it would ask if I wanted to pay for no ads which yeah would be great but I’m not gonna pay for no ads it’s not fare in my opinion!!! But worst of all I thought the new update was so cool until I noticed instead of getting that “free” spin to boost up whatever u landed on u now have to watch another ad just to spin!!!!! That is totally not right because now I have to watch 2 ads to spin! I know this may sound super petty and stupid but ads can be very frustrating especially since my iPad would start lagging afterwards I loveeeeeeee this app just not the ads! 😉😑😂
I have a pretty big problem
So when I do the survival mode, it will show me my opponents and I’ll just sit there for quite a while and it will just show the question then and I ran out of time because I couldn’t even be on the page with the question on it and it only loads at 0 almost every time! :( it’s sort of frustrating cuz I will get pretty far sometimes and then that glitch will happen. The ads are annoying too, one I’ve seen only twice in like 3 months was certainly not child friendly! It was a slot game ad and had practically naked people in it! ~_~ it was gross nobody wants to see that sort of ad! Please remove those kind of ads!!! And most other ads that you see are very repetitive like homescapes and the weird matchington thing, and they are both like, 45 seconds long, and if you get like maybe five six or seven questions right in trivia-thon you get one of those ads, and when you get a question wrong you can watch an ad to continue, when you get another wrong you get another pop up ad. I like the game but, I don’t like the long ads or inappropriate ads, as for the glitches hopefully you guys can fix them. Thank you for reading this long review. :)
Great game, update even better! Thx! ❤️
I suggest people who complain about ads but the “opt out” for under five dollars! It’s so worth it. The developers have to make a living too! I was not happy with some aspects of the game and developers got right back! Amazing! Thank you! I love this new update! What a difference in game play! Trying to get people to play because they think it’s the older version I don’t know... but I will keep trying.. at least my husband and I play regularly. If you could give us a little more time to answer questions as he can’t get to all on busy work days. Maybe a week grace period or more.. people do have busy life’s. My son stopped playing because of that restriction. And others say it’s not enough time and get annoyed because they almost win and go back and find the game closed.. but otherwise.. love it! Five stars if timing of days get set longer... thx again!
