    "If you are a fan of the badlands series then this is one is not to be missed. It has won a few awards for game play and its graphics. I have to say the game play is gorgeous i cannot deny that because it makes you stay with it and not have your mind wander from the story. The soundtrack was also perfect for this game. All in all top notch game."

    "It starts out easy and gets progressively harder as I move up in levels. I like that the game has simple rules and it's not overly resource intensive. Some of the puzzles are really hard to figure out but it keeps me occupied and interested. For a no frills puzzle game, this good."

    "I was looking for a casual game to play during a road trip. I downloaded New star soccer for my android phone. The graphics are ok, not top notch. There are way to many ads and they actually hinder your gameplay. The game play is fun when it works, and its good for wasting time. If you get frustrated by ads, do not attempt this one. "

    "This game kept me from getting bored for awhile, but I was disappointed to find that it only lasts for a few days. There is a paid version that I was kind of skeptical of but since I enjoyed the base game I didn't mind paying for a little extra. I was surprised to find such high production values in a mobile game."
