    Thank you so much for all the great reviews! As each update resets the ratings count, please take a moment to update your review for the current version.

    Also, if you ever have a problem with the game, please write us via the "Report a problem" option, which is available from the Options menu, or with "Contact us" on our website ( We answer all email promptly, and work very hard to solve any problems that come up.

    If you send a review to report a problem, we have absolutely no way to contact you back. So you will not receive any answer, and it's a pity because we probably already have a solution to your problem!
