    Try asking this in the General Chat area. This part of the forum is for playing word games, not discussing computer games.

    This is Simon's cat crunch time. I was playing it but found it very buggy on my phone. Sometimes it wouldn't up date and sometimes it reset losing my score completely and starting me from the beginning.

    In the end I gave up.

    No idea how to solve the problem. Agree it's better to post on general as there are some players on the forum.

    Oh, right. I don't do mobile phone gaming. Simon's Cat is that animation series from YouTube isn't it?

    It's PC and mobile gaming. It's a candy crush type game.

    Yes Simon's cat is the animation - his free stuff is on YouTube..

    The basis of this style of game is that you have to match 3 or more similar tiles. Depending on how you match them and the number of matching tiles determines the number of points. The premise is fairly simple but each variant has various rules, bonuses, mini challenges and virtual in game "prizes" which can make the game play quite addictive.

    Now that you explain it does ring a bell. I've don't bother with things like that; pointless in my opinion. I've heard that people waste money on boosters and extra levels or whatever whilst playing this kind of game.

    Yeah I think they can be quite lucrative. Ostensibly they are free to play but tend to be hard to play without the additional boosters which either cost money or replaying lots of levels again and again to get more bonuses. Complete time wasters really but some people enjoy them.

    There was a news article about this recently. Apparently thousands of young children install free apps to their tablets/phones and end up spending hundreds of pounds on upgrades and the like. Why young children are being allowed to install apps in the first place, I don't know.

    The only on-line game worth playing is Megapolis produced by Social Quantum. The small animations they have inserted into the application are entertaining and thoroughly amusing.
    Beautifully produced and well worth playing on android if you enjoy being creative. I've had the app' for about three years now and have built up quite a number of areas.
    It will probably take an unspecified number of years to compete because the application itself is so vast with various competitions for you to take part in.
