Last week my game got some sort of glitch which caused it to run sluggishly. The fix involves having to reinstall the game, which of course means I will lose all my boosters. So, I have spent the week playing down my cache of boosters. Also, I haven’t had the benefit of ads since this sluggish play began.
Ever since the Quests were removed from the game, I have been very cautious about using any boosters I received, so that basically means that I had a pretty good supply built up—over basically 7 months. During that time I was basically relying on the timed boosters from the ads.
As I was working on playing down my cache of boosters, I realized that I was essentially able to play the game the way I used to play—before the ads, before the Quests were removed. And it was really, really fun!
This makes me think about how some of the new features affect the game. I can’t remember if I managed to win Batula’s Key during the past week. Despite the rewards with Batula being “better” than the old treasure chests, not recalling whether I won it tells me it doesn’t have a big effect on my success in the game. I do remember thinking that I would have managed to open at least 3–maybe even 4 of the old treasure chests.
I will probably have depleted my boosters in the next day or so and will reinstall the game. But, I’m actually rather glad this is happening. It will be interesting to see how long it takes me to build up a booster supply with the “new” game.
