Recent Reviews and Comments

  • Frustrated

    Every single time a game ends, there are so many ads that pop up. They're slow so you never know if you're going to click play again or press an ad that will just bring you here to the store. It's honestly really annoying and has made me sort of regret ever getting this game. I mean it's like six ads in a row. I love this game but the ads are so not worth it.


    Can't even play. App continues to crash once I open it up.

  • Very Upsetting

    I have played both the free and paid version off and on for years, and while I enjoy the game, the app is terrible. I have lost all my points every time I lose contact with Game Center. I finally built them up again to 2500+ and it crashed and took me to zero! Good players won't play with you if you are considered a "beginner" and they quit as soon as they see your low point score. AVOID THIS APP.

  • Waste of time

    The ads are unbearable. An ad pops up ever few seconds during gameplay and if you tap the ad then it takes you to find out more about whatever is being pushed down your throat and your progress in your current match is lost (and possibly counted as a loss since you "abandoned" your game). This game also cannot be played offline. The first time I tried there was some popup about needing to connect to wifi and then it just crashes and refused to open. This app is awful.

  • Awful

    The game has so many ads that you cannot even attempt to play the game without clicking on one of them. The worst experience I have ever had with a game.


    I have no clue why But I clicked out of a game and was CONSTANTLY clicking off adds Get rid of one and it even does a box turning animation TO ANOTHER ADD

  • Ehh

    To Many Ads

  • Doesn't play by rules

    If there was a 0 star option is click that. The rules are wrong with the game. In this app, when you take your turn and the pit you end in stops your turn. But in real Manacala, you would continue your turn until you land in an empty pit. Also, the other thing that is wrong is the game is SUPPOSED to end when you get all the marbles out of your side, NOT when you have the most in your pit. Hope you read this, iHascupquake 💕

  • Mandala

    Love the game, but the server has problems. It gets stuck. I have to delete game then reinstall to be able to play. Plz get this fixed. Also, why can't we have chat anymore?

  • Eh

    It's a fun game but the advertisements are insane. Too many , causing me to delete the app

  • Do not waste your time!

    You literally can't even play the game because ads are popping up every 3 seconds. No exaggerations. This was quickly deleted.

  • Great game

    Let's you play others online which is better than the other mancala apps I've tried.

  • Getting an AD every 0.5 seconds

    Please fix this bug. It started happening recently and makes the game unplayable. I'm giving it 4 stars based on my past experience minus 1 for the annoying bug. Otherwise this is one of the better Mancala games in the App Store.

  • Great Game!

    Love it!! 😊

  • Add overload

    Love the game, but there are so many adds that it's impossible to play. Literally one add every second, even in the middle of a turn. You have to close them out or you'll accidentally hit them because they pop up in the middle of the turn and then you get taken to a whole other page. Extremely annoying.

  • Love this game

    Live love love this game love that you could play with others. Could anyone explain how to type and write messages that's what I don't get how to do??

  • Less than 1 star is preferred

    Less than 1 star is preferred. If you like apps that crash and freeze, then Mancala FS5 is for you! Game has a one minute timer but once the time is up..... Nothing Happens. This allows crummy players and sore losers to sand bag a game until you quit. When the game crashes the only way to play is to reinstall the app, then you lose of of your progress. Not worth the hassle!

  • Mancala FS5

    Piece of crap, ads pop up every five seconds and game freezes almost every time I open it or it crashes. I would give zero stars if possible.

  • Don't Get Your Hopes up

    When I got the game I had a splendid time. However after a few games I made an attempt to press the icon play again. The app immediately just shut down on me. And now every time I try to re download this app and press play again after only one game and it shuts down. Please fix this problem. I love this Mancala game, but this little problem results in two stars for the game makers from me.

  • To many ads!!

    You can never play the game as an adds just keep coming up blocking the game. Don't get this app

  • I usually don't mind ads...

    I usually don't mind ads... But when they pop up every 2 SECONDS, I get irritated. I'll go find another Mancala game to play.

  • Glitchy glitchy, yeah yeah dada.

    Great game, when it works. Half the time it crashes on opening. The ads are a fine concept but they obstruct the functionality of the game. No thanks, deleting the app.

  • THis is a fun app.

    I have been enjoying the challenges!

  • Frequently have to redownload

    Despite giving it only 2 stars, I really do like this app. However, every other day it stops working, and the only way to get it to work again is to delete the app and redownload it. This is really annoying, please fix it!

  • Use to be a nice app

    Unfortunately, they have so many pop ups that come up it isn't worth it unless you purchase the ad free version. So I'm deleting this and I'll play another version by a different developer. Peace out!

  • Nope.

    The 10 ads one after another is a joke on me right?

  • No new updates! Won't work!

    I have always loved this app, until now! It may still be good, but not if you can't get it to come up. There have been no new updates in over a year and so I guess I'll delete this and go with a new one that's tended to. I would not suggest anyone getting this until they update!


    This game is okay. I mean it's pretty fun if you're bored. Maybe it's just my game but if I play a second round an ad pops up every second. I literally mean EVERY SECOND. It's annoying because it prevents me from playing anymore and gets me frustrated.

  • Crashing

    There is some sort of memory leak in this thing. Every few days it crashes and won't launch any longer. I have to delete it and re-download the game. I loose all my points every time I do this. I've had to delete/re-install it 3 times in the last week.

  • Game crashes

    Game crashes often.

  • How do you chat???

    It's a nice game but it took a little bit to get use to. In school we were taught to play differently. Also people send me chats and I have no clue how to respond to them, and there is no info to tell you how to.

  • Game is great but needs update to stop crashing

    I enjoy playing but hate when I have to delete and reels load all because it freezes.

  • Bah

    Crashes constantly at startup. No data connection? No game. Goodbye mancala. It's been fun.

  • Pop up ads

    Was fun until all of these ridiculous ads starting popping up in the middle of my game! Literally 8 ads came up in a matter of 2 minutes... Uninstalling! 😡

  • Fun


  • it's fun, but...

    when this app works, it works. i love being able to play with actual people online. i love having the option to change my "internet name," and i love all of the other choices on what kind of game we want to play. verse the computer, verse a friend in real life, verse someone else playing in real time, or friends from your game center. earning credits to change the theme is wicked cool, too. but. this game crashes too much. sometimes i can't even get the app to load, and if i leave my option on the internet game and i'm not connected to the internet, it won't even give me the chance to switch options. it just crashes and crashes until i'm connected. it's really frustrating. please fix the crashing bugs.

  • Way to many ads

    At least 1 ad every 5 seconds and I'm not paying real money just for this game. That's super annoying. I know ads are what makes the game free but that many ads is just too much. I can't enjoy a game if I get interrupted every few seconds.

  • Mancala is crashing. DONT PURCHASE!!!!!!

    This is my favorite game, but now it is not working. I think the update has made it stop working. Please fix this issue so we can start playing again. When I try to open game it show it for a spit second then crashes. I have played this game for a long time but hasn't worked for more then a year now. I did purchase to play with no ads and this game should work especially if you have paid money toward it. DONT PURCHASE THIS GAME!!!!!!!!

  • Terrible App

    Way to many ads!!! Makes it so you can't even play the game because of all the pop ups!! 😡

  • What happened?

    Can you please stop this from crashing because when I download manacala and I was using the wifi so when I shut off access to the Wifi it crashed when I tried to play it so can you please fix it

  • Love the game but....

    I love this game, I often played as a young child. However, I'm considering not anymore, too frustrated with not being able to chat, mostly because people must think I'm rude for never responding but I am unable to!!

  • Too many adds

    I get it, it's a free game so it needs some ad-based support. But come on, this is crazy. The game play is smooth, minus the popup adds after each game and the request to buy to get rid of them, but not worth the hassle IMO, for a simple mandala game.

  • Ads won't go away.

    As soon as I click x another pops up and I tried closing the app and opening it again and it still does it.

  • What's with the ads!!?!?!?!

    My daughter and I have played this game for years, waiting in line or at restaurants. I just opened it to play and got no fewer than twenty ads, one after the next after the next, in such quick succession that I can't even access the menu to see what the problem is. It will be deleted because a ticker tape of ads is useless to me as a game. Very disappointed, but there's others out there!

  • Keeps on crashing

    Every timeI try to open the app it crashes. It will not work at all!

  • Could be better

    It's a great app for those who loves mancala... But could be better.

  • Crash

    App will not load

  • Terrible!

    I can't even get through one game without accidentally clicking on an ad and quitting my game. I've yet to finish a game thanks to this. Deleting and finding a new one.

  • Great game but has scoring bugs

    This is a great game with excellent graphics, but the scoring system will make you want to pull your hair out. The new update has done nothing to stop the cheaters, and you will sometimes lose points when an opponent quits. Scoring=very buggy. I recommend using the free version until FS5 fixes these problems. This game used to be great before the update now everything is messed up. I love when an opponent quits and I lose points! Awesome!

  • Great,if it would work.

    The app ALWAYS shuts me out after clicking on within a few seconds. It didn't happen the first few time and now it never works. When it did work, it was a great app. Nice, it didn't look cheap or anything. unfortunatly I'm having to download another app right now to replace this one.
