Not compatible with newer phones

Doesn’t work on iPhone XS Max or iPhone 11 Max. Hasn’t been updated in 2 years. Be careful when purchasing if using a newer phone.


Waste of $3.00. Doesn’t fit my screen at all and it doesn’t let me upgrade anything. Bummer used to be a great game

Amazing! But not fitted for the iPhone X

I LOVE THIS GAME!!! It is incredible! I loved playing it on my iPhone 6 and it was some of the best fun I’ve ever had. I got a new phone, an iPhone X, and I wanted to play this game since it’s great. However to my disappointment, the game was not fitted for iPhone X. The fishing was small and panned out, the menus and loading screens were messed up and broken, and the text was way too small. I love this game but please fix it.

iPhone XS max compatibility please ):
Fried Noodles

the screen is wayyyy small and its hard to see stuff. and it just looks ugly. please update it ):

Not compatible with new phones/os

The UI within the game is offset making it impossible to play the game beyond the initial level. Please update game so that it’s playable on newer devices.

Not good for iPhones

I cannot truly play this game. The display doesn’t fit on the iPhone 11 and I can’t upgrade any of the components. Complete waste of money.

When's the new update

love this game, but needs a whole new remodel for new end devices ex. iphone 6 and up

fantastic game, broken on new iphones

i have an iphone 8+ and the UI is horribly sized. i can’t press any of the buttons. i remember playing this a few years ago and it was a really fun game. i just wish i could read the text and experience it again.

Not Supported New iOS

Games not supported. Cannot upgrade. Looked like an awesome game... Need to be refunded
