    I do so regret starting this game.

    There are a number of issues I have with this game.

    The concept is to construct a castle using the pieces given to you in a tetris like way. However, you need to take into account that the castle will crumble and break if you overstack blocks.

    So my first qualm; the stacking logic. If i was to stack 5 identical blocks on top of each other, the ones at the bottom "crack". Frustratingly, you then have to stack blocks to the side to "spread out" the weakness, which then in turn means they will begin to crack. At the same time of this, you have to meet the level requirements.

    When you get to level 14, the fun drops because the levels then begin to become simply impossible. Trying to balance blocks on a tiny little island where as soon as one cracks the whole thing goes is simply not fun. Its challenging yes, but I will now explain why it is NOT fun....

    This is a FREEMIUM game. Lives cost money, bonuses cost money, and so do the boosts. Everything either requires extensive waiting or money.

    The achievements themselves are, as you can see from the attainment levels, very hard. They are time consuming and mostly require farming blocks (which are randomly generated) on each level.

    Homunculus FuryI couldn't agree more. You can earn free boosts in the WIN 8 version of the game by watching a video if you fail a level. The problem is that the boost you earn is random and you don't get a video each time you fail a level. The WP version of the game you have no option to earn a free boost at all.

    GAM3RJETI like the concept, but the freemium nature ruins what could have been a fun, challenging game.
