  • 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.

  • No chat option

    There is no way to interact with other players.

  • 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.

  • Too many ads.

    You can't breathe without an ad popping up. It's nog worth it. Beside the fact that it doesn't keep track of your scores. What is the point? No thank you.

  • Ads pop up every 5 seconds

    For one, it won't let you play offline for some inexplicable reason. But past that, a full-screen ad pops up literally every 5ish seconds the entire time you're using the app. Before and after every move you make there's an ad pop up. Nuts.

  • Upgrading broke the app

    I enjoyed this app until I decided to purchase the upgrade to remove the very annoying ads. Right after, anytime I tried to change the theme or start a new game the app crashed. Thanks! Not.

  • Always crashes!

    Great game but the app always chrashes

  • Disappointed

    When I had this app a few years ago, I loved it! I was on it all the time. I decided to get it again and I can't chat to my opponent (there's no option). Also, lots of ads and it keeps crashing :/ hope this gets fixed because I miss playing this game.

  • All ads

    It's like three major ad agencies took a runny dump over a mediocre app. It's an app an intern can develop with enough ads to make Fox News jealous

  • Bad app

    I like the game and I like that you can play other people online, but this actual app is really bad.

  • Game

    This game works for a while then won't open I have to always change my name to play it or it won't open.

  • Time for a bug fix again...

    The game was working beautifully until a couple of days ago. Now it seems that there might be a caching problem which causes the game to crash. The only way I've found to fix this on IOS8 is to do a system restart. Hope it gets fixed soon.

  • Terrible

    I used to love this game but now there are WAY too many ads. It's incredibly annoying. Definitely doesn't motivate me to buy any of them, let alone the mandala app. I deleted it instead.

  • Online play could be better...

    With that said it still is a good game just a lot of lag online...

  • I can open the app

    I was trying to open the app and play, but for some reason I'm not able to do it, hope it gets fixed soon...

  • Ads are Ridiculous

    I cannot even make my first move without closing 5 or more ad pop ups. If you take more than 2 seconds to make a move more ads pop up. It is completely impossible to play the game.

  • Too many ads

    Ads popped up every few seconds. Had this game for years but it's now unusable.

  • Some bugs

    A decent game my ability to "chat" has disappeared but not a huge deal, didn't use it too often anyways. Updates usually crash after download so just wait, don't update right away wait for the second update and it usually works. If an update is broken it's fixed within a week.

  • Broken gameplay...tons of ads

    Don't waste your time with this app...the gameplay is very buggy and there are ads after every other move. Find a version from a different developer

  • Seems to be broken

    When I try to open up new games it just sits there and freezes my phone for 45 seconds I think it needs a fix

  • Won't load.

    The first 2 days that I had this app, it worked fine. However, now it won't load. The first screen appears, and then it goes back to my apps. Please fix this.

  • Insidious Ads

    Game is fun, 1-player reasonably challenging. When taking action, sometimes even during game a pop-up will appear; Inadvertently leading to App Store & ending game. Understand ad support but don't force clicks.

  • The amount and aggressiveness of the ads make it unenjoyable

    I enjoyed this app when I could just play it, but once the app started switching screens and opening safari I uninstalled it.

  • Poor

    Poor function.

  • Terrible Game

    Drops games all the time. Too many ads to deal with as well.

  • Sometimes it works

    I would give this game 5 stars if it worked all the time half the time it won't open for me it just lags out over and over and then all of a sudden it works then lags out the next time I try and open the game

  • Trash app

    Love mancala but I don't understand how this app can be soooo garbage... A ad pops up in your face back to back and sometime the game won't even open up.. Had to delete and redownload at least 6 times! Don't recommend

  • Hate it

    To many ads gets annoying deleted it after 1 game

  • Love it

    In some ways it could be better

  • What happen!!!!

    After the upgrade, the game will not start and shut down without allowing you to play😕😕😕

  • Advertisements

    At first the app was working great but then as time went out I was playing a game & after all my moves an advertisement pops up. It's annoying! I don't recommend it.

  • Boo Hiss!

    After a long period of not playing, I decided to try this game once again. I'm now uninstalling it. Game constantly freezes, crashes, and fails to start.

  • Entertaining

    Really fun game that makes you think. The app is a lil quirky (can't connect at times) and too many bots but very good fun overall.

  • Confused

    I've played this game many times irl (yes, I have been playing it the correct way), but the app is constantly confusing me with it's fast moving pieces and steals.

  • Unbelievable

    I leave for TWO MONTHS, get an update, come back, all of a sudden GREETINGS ARE GONE. How am I supposed to greet the most played player, "Internet Player"? He or she is always on. What is going on. It's like the apocalypse or something. I can't even. Mancala you were at a 4 because there could have been more greetings now you're down to a one and a half.

  • Too many ads

    I can't be on the app for five minutes without an ad popping up. Not only is it just one or two apps every couple minutes, it's about 25 ads back to back without a break, making it absolutely impossible to play the game without being redirected to the app store. Please fix this problem.

  • Devs Broke App With Update

    There used to be a "Nearby" option that has been completely removed from the app so you can't play over Bluetooth or wireless anymore. They force you to play through GameCenter and it doesn't work so my friend and I can't play on our phones right next to each other. Great job, devs... downloading a different mancala app now.
