Bug Fixes

Recent Reviews and Comments

  • Boring but SOOOOO MANY ADDS!!!!!!!

    This game isn't that interesting and entertaining but it's something to waste time. But... there is so many adds and I can't even play the game cause when I go to the settings page ( the start page), I can't even press the start button in time!!!!

  • Sell out

    The game has sold out to ads everywhere to the point that it is unplayable. I literally closed out of 20 ads which popped up one after another before exiting the ap. Before that, a bug force exited me out of the ap. So even if you get into a game you still have to deal with the absurd amount of ads which pop up randomly forcing you to click them due to the game lag, and the chance it might quit on you... with that said, it used to be a fun game, strategic and time consuming without requiring a lot of attention but it is just impossible to play anymore.

  • The adds are too much

    I would be fine with the game if the adds were not over done. I get it adds will pop up but I countered 15 adds popped up in the middle of the game in 1 min. That's a little too much.

  • Nothing but constant ads

    See title

  • Timer issues

    If the timer runs out, it should be game over

  • Mancala

    It's ok u can't type messages to people if u have free version it's annoying when someone calls in the middle of a game and it automatically throws u off

  • Easy computer, cheating opponents

    Like all the other reviews, while playing others they can just wait you out to win. I don't see how that's fun for anyone. And the advanced AI is way to easy. I win against the program 90% of the time.

  • Horrible app amazing game.

    I have had to delete the app and restart 5 times because the update freezes the app. And when the timer runs out the opponent should lose.

  • Frustrating and Unfair

    I can actually deal with all ads and other bugs this game has to offer EXCEPT this one. When the game play timer runs down you would think that would count as a forfeit for THAT person who let it run out, but no. Instead the game comes to a complete standstill until a player decides to leave the game, and in that case that person loses the game and loses their chips that were betted. As you can imagine this is incredibly FRUSTRATING and UNFAIR to the person on the other side of that. Losing players are using this as a way to get the winning players to lose the game and their chips. Which takes all of the fun out this app. I personally feel like I should have a much better record and rating but can't seem to get ahead because this happens almost EVERYTIME I'm winning. I end up leaving after so long because the other person doesn't, which makes it seem like I forfeited and lost. I'm searching for a new mancala app because I'm tired of wasting my time with the cheaters and bad bugs this app has. Please fix this bc I actually would love to keep using this app.

  • Good potential but poorly maintained

    Update broke some functions. Now exits app after each round. Still doesn't award internet games to the winner when opponent lets the clock run out.

  • Poor execution!

    As if the meaningless timer isn't bad enough, now you're making me click through 12 ads between games? Are you fraking serious?!?

  • Alright

    I love you can play randomly online but that's the best part about it. It won't let you change your theme unless you have a min of 2000 credits and you only get 10 for winning and 5 for losing. Doesn't explain rules very well and it's really just a boring interface.

  • Too many adds!!

    After each game there are anywhere from 5-10 adds that pop up. So your constantly trying to close them so you can start over or exit but they keep popping up. Even happens in the main menu. Very annoying and will probably delete game if it stays

  • Ads

    Way too many ads. They used to end when the game started but now it interrupts between games & even gets in the way of playing. Absolutely ridiculous how it spiraled out of control

  • Bad and getting worse

    The developers have pretty much abandoned the game. It freezes preforming most actions and the themes have not been updated in a couple of years.

  • Horrible quality

    Horrible Quality game, Glitches, and looks outdated

  • Needs fixing

    Attempting to give support feedback but leaving it here just in case I cannon get through. Free version crashes after each game. Not a normal occurrence as the app was very reliable in the past.

  • JUNK! Don't install

    JUNK! There are many problems with this game. Crashes after every game. Won't retain settings. Doesn't run properly on iOS 10. Previous in-app purchases aren't fulfilled. JUNK!

  • To many ads

    I finished a game with the computer and I won and there were so many ads. I just clicked x on all of them while I counted. 20 ADS PLAYED AT ONE TIME.

  • Rules to Game Confusion.

    I may be wrong, but the objective of the game is to collect the most seeds into your storage (right hand side). I had 34 while the opponent had 38, so I shoud lose but the game said "winner." I'm confused... so I supposed to have fewer seeds?

  • Great! But.....

    This game is really great! Everything I expected, but... you can't play without internet.

  • Ads after ads

    The free version used to never have so many advertisements. I played a little bit ago and counted 15 advertisements popping up in under a minute. Good game just an annoying way to get you to spend $2.99 on the game without ads.

  • Nice game but way too many ads

    I enjoyed playing this one but, it got to the point where I closed literally 11 ads in a row before being able to start another round. Not worth it when there are plenty other free apps that do the same thing.

  • Poor design

    Suggestion: when the timer for a player in online play runs out, then that player loses. When playing online players, it takes forever to connect to one. Then, your turns are timed. Great, it keeps the game moving. Except the timer means nothing! Once your time is up, the game is at a standstill until someone forfeits. Especially frustrating when you are ahead and the other person runs their clock out so they don't lose, making you forfeit. Third time typing this out. Thanks Apple.

  • Need more fun options for free

    Need a little more option and less ad

  • Won't work offline, endless ads

    I loved a previous version of this app, whose ads were predictable and regular and would work offline. This version does not work unless you're connected to the Internet. It will freeze at the menu or when the app realizes you're not connected to the Internet. Additionally, I have run into situations in which popup ads were endless, requiring me to quit the app and reopen. I want the old mancala back!

  • Too many ads

    There are so many ads that I can't even play the game. The game itself isn't bad just all the constant annoying ads that pop up when playing.

  • Ads

    Had it for all of 3 min. Ads literally popped up every 10 sec so it was really hard to play without accidentally clicking an ad. Not worth it at all. 😡😤

  • Adds like crazy

    This game has way too many adds. They kept popping up over and over so quickly I wasn't even able to play the game. It was one add after another with literally zero time in between them. Waste of your time downloading. If it wasn't for these adds making it impossible to play I am sure it would have been fun.

  • Love the game but.....

    I love the game but seeing that it was last updated in March of 2015 and having it crash after game is over gets annoying. Manacala is one of my favorite games to play. 😔 I wish they would fix it. Until than I am deleting it.

  • Not recommended

    The game itself was OK. Computer wasn't nearly hard enough to be called "advanced", but what really got irritating was the ads. Every time you go to click on something - BAM! Another ad. You can't stop yourself quick enough from clicking on them. When it started happening every time I tried to make a move in the game, that's when I decided to get a different app. Too frustrating.

  • Disappointed

    Every move I made a pop up ad happen EVERY MOVE I could enjoy the game at all I'm very disappointed.

  • Bad

    Needs to be updated badly

  • Great game but

    So many freaking advertisements. I understand it's free but they're during the middle of the game! I at least understand them being in between games but right in the middle I mean come on, I quit the game because of it.

  • I don't understand

    If the object of the REAL game is to earn more marbles then your opponent then why does it tell you that you lost!! I've been winning every game but it says I lost!! And when I purposely lose it says I Won. Please fix this!!ASAP

  • You can't play because of the ads

    It was a constant flow of ad after ad. I could even tap my screen

  • Would give 5 stars but ads are TERRIBLE

    The ads pop up when you're trying to hit "play" and then they freeze up your phone while trying to take you to the App Store. Good app, but the ads make it SO difficult to use.

  • Ads every 1 sec

    It's so annoying! There are ads every seconds!!!

  • Crashes

    The game is fun to play, but whenever I win a game it says I lose; whenever I lose a game it says I win. After playing one game the app crashes and resets itself

  • Awful

    The ads make this game unbearable. Every single turn is interrupted by multiple. I deleted it after only two minutes of having it downloaded. Absolutely ridiculous.

  • Good but a big flaw

    This game is pretty good and I can even deal with the ads. However, in online play often when I am beating someone they will simply let their time run down and the app won't do anything. I would think they would lose if their time ran down. I left my phone like that for 9 minutes while I did something else and I came back to the same screen.

  • Game


  • Too Many Ads

    I have to tap X on 10 ads each time I start a new game. Not worth it.

  • Messages

    Does anyone know how to send messages? App does not open


    I love this app but it's too easy to beat the computer once you get the hang of it. I hope the developers enhance it or I won't be using it anymore .

  • .

    So many ads I never could play.

  • It crashes after every game

    It also Crashes when you update settings please fix the bugs

  • horrible

    Always crashes after one game and it never saves your data. Super annoying !!!

  • Ads!!!!

    A waste of time. There are never ending ads that pop up. I couldn't make a move without ads blocking the game.

  • What happened

    I get the ads, but now there's more ads flying at me than a math competition. C'mon man.
