UNACCEPTABLE

[Post New]by crisgori on Jul 8, 13 9:33 AM
It' absolutely crazy that people who have spent real money, a lot, to buy diamonds and get the highest levels of the game can't play it anymore. BFG and ELEPHANT GAMES shame on you.

What do you mean they can't play it anymore?

I understand how you feel.

I like the game for the most part but the part I don't like, I really don't like.
And you hit that on the nail -- Having to Buy Diamonds. And waiting for 5 days of playing each day to get the 5 free diamonds. Really -- that is just insulting.

But the game designer has to make money. So this is one way to do it.

Now if the game designers had set it up that you can buy a version of the game that allowed you to play it, and not have to buy diamonds or coins. Earning diamonds and coins a bit faster would make the game more enjoyable.

My only other issue can be tracked back again to having to buy coins or diamonds, and that is the energy you have to essentially buy or you leave you computer on focused on the game over night and hope that there isn't some automatic shut off -- and you can then recharge your energy. I haven't tried this yet but personally I think that is just wrong.

So as fun as this game is -- I am going to uninstall it.

It's "insulting" to get five diamonds every fifth day?

When this game was introduced, you only got diamonds when you achieved another level. You did not get free stuff from a box every three hours. You did not get diamonds, energy and items from special floaters. Things "cost" more to buy.

I'd say it's only gotten better.

Why should the developers continue spending their considerable time, resources and talent to create a beautiful, engaging and fun game if no one wants to contribute anything towards its development? I don't mind a bit throwing a few bucks into the kitty to encourage future updates, and as it benefits me in the game to do so, that's a bonus. I haven't spent more than I would have on a collector's edition game that only lasts five hours. And I've probably played FOUND for well over 50 hours by now. I'd say that's a good investment.

There is already a "version" that allows you play without spending money on diamonds or coins. It's the one you're already playing.

I am at level 173. I'm not having new quests, no new locations, no alter-ego floaters, no new achievements.
I think there should be a balance between the reasonable profit for a well-done job and the amusement of the customers, who, at the end, are paying for that job: in my opinion the new updates are just working for the profit of Elephant Games. And that's unfair.

I agree with UNACCEPTABLE. I spent "real" money to buy diamonds for quite some time and could have bought many games instead. This was a fun game, and early releases were improvements.

The more recent releases have had so many negatives that I did not download them and continue to play without them. It does not seem that I am missing anything. Yes, there are apparently new things but nothing that makes me want to forfeit that i have achieve and bought.

Devs should be able to make money for their efforts. When the negatives outweight the positives from a new release, Devs lose their market. The game may be enjoyable, but it is not the only fun game.

Freemium just seems to mean "hook 'em and soak 'em."

But Found isn't Freemium, there is just one version of this game, is it?
I've always been loving the fairness of BFG, now I'm feeling deceived. What a pity

I remember those days...and thanks for pointing out this is better.

I refuse to pay any money.

OK, it may take me longer but that`s fine with me.
