Love and hate the game 2/5
I love the stories in this game and I love playing but the reasoning for the low rating is you can't do anything you want because of how many diamonds a lot of the choices cost. There should be a better system for it or charge like $2.99 for the game and get rid of the diamond system completely because I rather pay a one time fee than waste my money on diamonds, because I refuse to pay the money for them. That is the main reason I don't recommend this game to others is no one would want to deal with it. Not only that, but the timing it takes for you to earn free keys takes so long and it will only go up to a max of two and then stop earning them until you use one you have to wait another hour and thirty mins for each of them to come back. And you blow through through the keys so fast it's upsetting. I was actually debating not playing it anymore because it's so frustrating. I have played other games that are free and you earn so many of the diamonds for free you can actually enjoy the game fully. With out wasting a dime. Last if you do use diamonds to make a choice if you decide you want to do the story again that option cost diamonds every time it doesn't save options you already paid diamonds for. Same goes with keys even if you opened a whole book already you need keys to to it again. Overall I wish they would makes changes and I bet a lot more people would download the game. It almost makes the game unenjoyable.
Addicting but.. 3/5
There should be ways to earn keys. Like watching ads or things of that nature. Waiting 2 hours to play again? Not to mention all the diamonds things cost. At least make it more plausible like 10 diamonds max, not 32! Very off putting.
Iba bien hasta q paso algo 3/5
By Joan Triminio
Estaba esperando la llave para jugar hasta q lo actualize y ya no me entra entro y se me sale al momento arreglen eso por favor
Well 😤 3/5
THE GAME IS GOOD BUUUUT since you guys freaking updated it it's not working and it's being a screw over.
The best stories but... 2/5
The need for diamonds is becoming super irritating. Seems like every minute there’s a new choice that requires diamonds. It’s starting to take the fun away, and not everyone can whip out a credit card to pay for diamonds everyday. Also you have to wait over an hour just to get 2 keys.
I love choices it’s a really fun game (By the way loving Endless Summer.) But diamonds sort of ruin it...Don’t mind keys though. I just wish the keys would keep coming after you get two. My main problem is the diamonds...all of the fun choices are diamonds. :( I mean. Really? 30 diamonds to do something? Even 15 is quite a bit. Anyway just saying. Love the game.
Not for me 1/5
By Aniya makia Richardson
I don’t really like the app because I like to see the details.I just don’t want to see there face impressions and emotions.I want to see there whole entire body not just there face. For the people that are like me you should not download this app
It’s a very fun game but... 4/5
I just downloaded this game recently and I love it. It’s so fun and relaxing and I love seeing how the characters evolve each book. My only problem with the game is the diamonds... most choices you need diamonds for and you almost never have enough diamonds to make the great choice so you’re kinda stuck with the more sucky choice. The only way you can pick the great choice is by spending money for more diamonds. I think what you guys should do is you should offer an alternative. Watch an ad for extra diamonds. Do a daily spin or prize wheel that gives away diamonds
Awesome app 5/5
This is a really cool app. I chose Michael to be the love interest for the main character in High School Story.
Great game but 4/5
By Mathias Santos
You guys make so hard to earn diamonds to spend in a story!!! I’m totally fine watching ads for a diamond or a key. You should at least give 3 diamonds a chapter. Please make sure you have that added!!!!!!
Disappointed but good 4/5
The game is great, but it’s really disappointing that you can only play twice every two hours (roughly). Having keys to play doesn’t make sense, and there needs to be more ways to get more diamonds. And keys, for that matter. A quicker, faster way to get both and it would have 5 stars.
Diamond system is seriously flawed. 3/5
By Little Miss No Diamonds
You guys are really going to have to overhaul your diamond system. I can live with waiting for keys but the diamonds are way too hard to earn. Finishing an entire chapter only nets you 18 diamonds at most, you aren't rewarded for repeating chapters, and most items cost at least 20 diamonds. The cash price for the diamonds is too high as well. I love that the choices have consequences but it feels like the game punishes you for not spending money. For example, I had purchased a dress in the "glamorous" category. Later in the story I was prompted to purchase another dress, also in the "glamorous" category. I decided to wear my already owned "glamorous" dress instead and was told I was dressed inappropriately. That is irritating and does not make sense.
You have to add some sort of daily spinner or AT LEAST award more diamonds for completing an entire book.
This has really great potential but feels needlessly greedy. Please make changes otherwise I don't think I will be able to maintain interest in this game, it seems like others feel the same.
I love this app! But.... 3/5
I absolutely love this app and the stories. I just don’t like how every choice that could influence the story costs diamonds. With so little in return. I hope in the future you make choices more obtainable....especially given the name of the app.
Fun if you dump money into it 2/5
The stories are well written for a phone app, and the art is great. It really is a fun game. What’s not great is the gem situation. You earn one gem per chapter completed and choices that cost gems are sometimes upwards of 30 gems! Gems should be for purely cosmetic reasons imo. Changing your clothes and things that don’t impact the storyline. I ended up losing out on an ally I wanted because I didn’t have 25 gems just hangin around. Having to pay to have the best ending or even just choices you’d want is just unreasonable. Make money from people who appreciate a good game, or want cosmetic changes. Even buying the app for a bit of money and having infinite keys and gems is something I would absolutely do. But I can’t warrant the amount of money they want to charge you just to make the premium choices that actually impact the storyline or alter your character. Not fair to your audience and a severe disappointment.
Keys and diamonds 3/5
First off, is there NOT a unlimited key subscription anymore? I have searched and searched and would honestly GLADLY pay for the subscription. But can’t find it anywhere. Please either update that or edit it out of your game description.
Honestly this is such a great game, good storylines, character development, graphics, the whole shebang. My only constant complaint is about keys and diamonds. It’s IMPOSSIBLE to fully enjoy the game because of the soft cap of 2 keys. I know you’re “working” on ways to get more diamonds and keys but speed it up. There are so many other games with a daily spin or the option to watch short ads, it’s tempting to ditch this one and leave it in the dust.
Those stupid diamonds 3/5
The stories are great. The art is great. But why is diamond earning so slow compared to how many diamonds you need for the best interactions? One diamond per chapter ever? Really?
Money Maker 2/5
By Tiffany Landers
It’s too bad this app doesn’t let you make good choices unless you spend money because it’s really fun. As much as I loved it, I deleted the app because of this. Too bad.
Love It 5/5
I really really love this app even to the point where is spend boat loads of money on diamonds just to get the reaction out of the story I’m just waiting on Endless Summer book 3 it ended with such a cliffhanger and I made sooooooooo much progress in it that I want to finish
Great game with great storyline 3/5
I am loving playing this game but the diamonds are costing me too much. I may have to delete it. It needs a way to earn more diamonds by daily bonus or something.
Pretty good 4/5
The stories are awesome, but the extra content cost too many diamonds.
My favorite app 5/5
I can’t put this app away, I’m addicted! I love the details, I just wish I could customize characters a little more. Oh and some stories are definitely 18 and older not 12. I’m not complaining though this is by far my favorite app.
Why did you change the character James! 1/5
I don’t appreciate coming back to sophomore book 1 and seeing a whole new character with the same name.
Great but... 3/5
This app is great but some choices that are “premium choices” are not really logical. For example, you have to pay in order to kiss someone or tell someone a secret. It isn’t really realistic. I know that’s not the point of this game but you can’t even choose what you want to wear? I feel like this app is very money hungry.
What would be a nice promotion is to give one book away for free to give the players a feel of what they can have? I would be down to play the game if it meant a free book was involved. Just a thought.
I like it
Ok, let's start off with this: every time I have to dress for a party or go on a special date, I have to waste 20 freaking diamonds/gems just to wear something, it's a great game it's just I hate how you have to literally buy everything. I especially hate when, let's say you have to spend 20 diamonds/gems to go on a date then while on the date you can wear something that costs 20 diamonds/gems. And it takes forever to get them back since you're only allowed two keys. Can it at least be like 5 diamonds/gems because I need those diamonds/gems for other things. So please lower the price to at least 5 diamonds/gems. PLEASE!!!
This Game 2/5
Really good game, but I wish you didn’t need diamonds to make most of the decisions!! It has messed up so many of my chapters and it’s kinda upsetting. Please fix this because I can’t enjoy this game....
Not for me 2/5
Cool game but it costs to much to play. The amount of diamonds it takes to purchase something is designed to wipe you out so you have to buy more. It’s pretty lame because the game is fun and the visuals are nice but, I’m not going to keep throwing money in a game and get nothing out of it. Plus it takes way to long to be rewarded your keys. It was fun for a bit but I’m deleting the app. Not worth it.
I like it
Had to give three stars... 3/5
I love the idea of this app. And granted the story really keeps me going and I feel like I have to know more. However I don’t feel like it’s fair that there is no other way to earn a substantial amount of keys or diamonds besides paying. What’s offered through the app by waiting TWO hours and then by finishing one chapter and getting a gem. Doesn’t seem worth it. I feel like I should be able to spin a wheel or watch some adds to earn more. I would even be more willing to have payed for the app then had freedom from there. My other complaint is that for anything good you have to pay. IE Wardrobe or a fun choice. AGAIN definitely think the creator of this app is on to something AMAZING. Just needs a few twerks. To make it more user friendly.
Very fun game but 1/5
You have to spend way too much of your own money to complete one little task. And it’s impossible to “earn” enough money in the game to accomplish anything.
Fun app 3/5
But why are half of the characters gay? I don’t have a problem with anyone or their choices, but half+? It’s not representative of any ‘general population’. Like I said, the stories are fun, but...
This app is killing me! 4/5
I agree with other reviews. It’s fun to kind of escape and make your own story but such a drag to start other books to make enough diamonds for the one you really want. Then when you get involved in another story, you need more diamonds. It’s just a way for the app developers to make money, which I understand, but it makes it harder to play. And it takes forever to get a key to open a new chapter.
I’m on the verge of deleting the app because it takes forever to develop the story. If there were incentives to earn diamonds, maybe it’d be easier to get a story going. It’s lame when you have to choose a basic choice when what you really wanted was to see where the story went if you chose a “diamond” choice... I think it’d be more fun if you got what you wanted and were free to restart and choose again to see what types of choices lead you where.
Amazing game except 1 thing 5/5
I love this game so much. I play it a lot too the only problem is that the special things you can do with your diamonds are so hard to pass up. I connect to the characters so much the I can’t stop buying the diamonds. If you do something so that we can earn diamonds easier that would be very appreciated.
This should be called Charges! Not Choices! Every episode calls on you to buy diamonds just to make normal decisions during the story. One episode gets you one diamond but one episode also requires 2 or 3 scenarios where you can make choices if you have 12 to 30 diamonds. So basically every episode is going to cost you money if you want the story to be interesting. I’ve deleted this ripoff App
Needs better diamond rates for each chapter 3/5
Stories are great, but I would rate this higher if it gave more diamonds per chapter. Or a daily reward for logging in. Even better would be to watch ads for diamonds. 1 diamond per chapter when diamond choices cost 10+ is ridiculous.
This game is complete crap! Cheap story lines and the $$$ you have to spend to "really enjoy it", makes it such a complete waste of time. If you want to spend hundreds of dollars on a thrill-less mediocre game than this is your chance. Ugh, my worst!!! Ultimate rip
Honest Review 4/5
Choices produces a library of various interactive comic books where you can influence the outcome of the story through various choice options throughout the story.
The artistry is gorgeous and appealing, the music engaging even download worthy in some cases, and the stories (at least most) are definitely a cut above the rest.
However, and this is a BIG however, the diamond choices are beginning to weigh heavily on even the most devoted of players. Myself included.
If you were to hypothetically pay for all of the diamond options for all of the current books, you could spend well over $1000 dollars in this app before you are done!!!!
Their Endless Summer and The Crown and the Flame series are among the best series in their crop. Also popular are the Freshman and the Royal Romance, and their newest horror story It Lives in the Woods is turning out to be another hit. I started playing this game for their initial mystery series Most Wanted, which sadly hasn't received a second book, as of yet.
If you enjoy these types of games, I recommend checking it out, but be warned it can be addicting and pricey! So if you value your money and time... well you've been warned. See below for a breakdown.
I say influence rather than control because honestly you won't have as much influence in the story as you may like.
For one, it would be extremely difficult for the writers to account for all of the outcomes readers/players may want to choose. They are trying to tell a story here.
And two, many of the prime choices that make the most difference in the game are diamond choices. So unless you are willing to pay, you may end up making the less interesting choices and therefore playing a less interesting story.
In most cases, you can complete the story in a satisfactory way without diamond choices. However, the diamond choices greatly nuance the story, giving the stories length, and depth that would otherwise be lacking in a non-diamond play-through.
However, many of the diamond options feel manipulative. The choice is often built up or hyped in the story, I would even say practically handed to you, only to have a diamond choice pop up and you can't have the scene without paying. The guilt trip is real. You can't help friends out or wear even the most reasonable of clothes to an event or save an adorable animal without paying.
There is a way to earn diamonds in the game, by completing chapters. But the amount of free diamonds compared to the amount of diamond choices and cost of those choices are greatly disproportionate.
SUGGESTION: how about a marathon play through option for extra diamonds. In this option you can choose at the start of a new book to play without the ability to replay chapters. In other words, whatever choice you make the first time round you are stuck with til the end. But with this choice you earn extra diamonds per chapter. You also can't restart the book until the end without forgoing the extra diamonds for each chapter. There are often timed choices or difficult choices that I often get 'wrong' the first time around but I always go back and replay the chapter for the outcome I prefer. But in the marathon option you are stuck with those consequences through to the end of the book. This way those who really need diamonds can get them. But there is still a kind of consequence that makes it so the reward is delayed.
They gotta make money somehow, so I really don't mind spending money now and then. But to give you an idea of prices, consider the following:
For a middle diamond pack, you can pay $20 for 250 diamonds. In the course of reading one chapter of one book you may come across 3 maybe 4 diamond choices at approximately 15 diamonds a piece. For a book that is 15 chapters long, you could potentially pay 500-600 diamonds. At the rate of $20 per 250 pack, you could potentially spend $40 bucks or more on a single book to participate in all of the diamond choices. (To give you a comparison, a normal new paper comic book would range from $5 to $20 dollars!) So you could be paying nearly twice as much just to have a choice and for the addition of music!
Currently, there are around 25 books, within around 10 to 11 different series. These series span across a handful of genres, fantasy, romance, mystery and horror.
If you earn a diamond for every chapter for each current book, you will likely earn around 300-400 diamonds over the course of the playing all of the stories, which wouldn't even get you through all of the diamond options in one book.
Granted, you may not wish to purchase all of the diamond options. You can choose not to do all of the romance options. Or to not keep or name pets. You can choose to not do the premium clothing options. And there may be some books you are not as invested in and can play them only to acquire diamonds. Also, there are plenty of walkthroughs on YouTube, so if you just gotta see what happens, but can't afford it there's that. However, some stories/games involve accumulative choices so the walkthrough on YouTube may not have your precise choices or desired outcome.
My advice, pick what premium choices you make with great care...and prepare to get addicted. Or just plain stay away.
A big thing ruined the game for me. 1/5
I hate the fact that you have to use diamonds in order to do certain tasks or use certain choices. It kills the fun and the game for me. I would love if you could make you game better by deleting this feature.
why did you guys change James ☹️ 4/5
my baby looks so different now 😒😂 anyways this is a fun game. Keys take a while and diamonds are pricey.
Great but you need gems for everything 4/5
It’s a fun game but you shouldn’t have to need gems for everything, it makes people not want to play it like who’s actually gunna spend money on gems for a fake character.
Absolutely love choices! It lives in the woods is my favorite!
Ahem but on to the sophomore...PLEASE CHANGE JAMES FACE BACK !
Fix the diamonds! 3/5
It cost way to much to purchase diamonds and only get such a small amount, the scenes cost like 20 diamonds. It’s ridiculous. Make you not want to play. Please adjust and make it more realistic
I truly truly love this app but it has one huge problem, the pay wall. For most of the fun choices you need diamonds. An average choice costs around 18 diamonds and for the completing a chapter you get a single diamond. You can make one of these choices per season unless you are willing to pay money
I made some bad choices 2/5
By MY GIRLFRIENDs uncle craig
If you’re like me, don’t get this app. I’m bad at choices and boy believe me when I tell you, this app is ALL choices. I fell into the well on the third screen. And it’s a dang shame too, because my princess was a dame. Get this app if you’re into disappointment and choices.
The game is great as an RPG but is a shameless cash grab. 2/5
I think that the storytelling in this game is good but it struggles with the same overpriced micro transactions that every other free to play game has. That however isn’t the main problem. The problem is that for the price you don’t get much out of it. I would suggest a reward system closer to Fallout shelter as it rewards you fairly for completing objectives and goals but purchases are incentivized as they don’t severely inhibit gameplay and don’t make the player feel stuck behind a paywall. If this problem was addressed I could warrant giving the game 5 stars as the rpg style elements are fantastic for how they appear in the game.
There are great stories that get you connected to the characters and much much more. This is a great game that tells amazing stories.
More keys and diamonds please! 1/5
I love this game. I can play all day and everyday if I can BUT!! The fact that it takes forever to get keys and diamonds get me so frustrated makes me not want to play anymore and even delete it off my phone! Think everyone should stop playing and even delete the app until they fix this problem!!!!
All I got to say is this game is clickbate 101
I like it but...... 3/5
I like this app it has great stories and everything. But I'm really frustrated at the fact that you have to wait 2 HOURS JUST FOR ONE KEY! I suggest you should make us wait 15 minutes for 4 or 5 keys. I also don't like how you only earn 1 diamond after each chapter you should earn at least 4.
