    Haven't seen him yet but still have the Rainbow Road boxes. Hopefully they will not get replaced. Often they are the only way get extra free time to work on hard levels and at least a few times with some boosters. 

    The similar character in Friends is random as well and also has a time limit to fetch the key. However, it is in addition to daily quests!

    Having failed to open the chest (multiple agains) the key fairy has upped the time limit to 3:45 hours and moved the chest one level down the road.

    I have played this game for a very long time now. Those treasure chests are what kept bringing me back to the game more than once a day. I got the new feature a few days ago and I absolutely hate it. The keys are difficult to get within the short period of time. The boosters are great but what I want is the 2 hours extra for lives. The treasure boxes gave us those multiple times throughout the day. This feels like king would rather us not play as often. I still bought boosters every now and then so the chests did not deter me from that. If this tactic is to get us to buy more boosters it’s not working. Now I just play in the mornings when I get my half hour of free lives and don’t revisit the game the rest of the day.

    That’s exactly the tactic, DONT BUY BOOSTERS.
    I do the same as you, 30 mins free lives, then see you tomorrow. Sometimes I get to a level and after a few attempts, realise it’s fixed, then stop playing until the following day, when the more appropriate booster drops.
    Its all a racket, they don’t even try to hide it.

    Ok, they already made this feature harder for me. The first two times, when I completed one new level, the treasure goblin/batula thing would show up and then I would have to complete 2 or 3 more levels for the reward.   Now it makes me play 3 new levels before the batula/goblin thing shows up and then I have to play 3 to 4 more levels to get the reward. Ugh...I liked this the first two times I played it, but now forget about it. I'm not going to complete 7  new levels just to get a small reward.

    Agreed.  I’ve only opened the chest once so far.  Tonight I got a new key and it was 4 levels away instead of 3.  Once again, why fix what wasn’t broken?

    I have to agree that I am not at all fond of how many levels I have to clear in order to claim my prize. The old gift boxes were much more manageable!

    Ive been on this stupid level for 4 days now, there’s no way I’m getting that stupid key.

    The game’s corrupt !!!

    I just seems like yet another feature that is great for lower level players that can zip through a bunch of levels in one session rather than spending days or weeks in a single level.  And so far the rewards have been minimal , three boosters in maybe a week.

    This is rubbish! Won a level with a chest only for it to open with the key which flies a few levels further?! That's just absolute rubbish!

    Doesn't sound like fun at all.
    Please Vote here for adding a 500 point Treasure Chest to Soda Squad! Thanks.

    Batula paid another visit tonight.  Five levels to complete in 4 hours.  Yeah—not going to happen.  Missing the treasure chests as much as the Quests right now.

    If Batula’s goal is to prevent players from opening the chests, it is immensely successful.  I’d like the old chests back, please.

    I should probably be less sarcastic and more specific.  First the positive.  The one and only time I saw a reward, it was worth playing for.  Now the negative.  The randomness with which he appears as well as the randomness of the number of levels one has to complete to open the chest is annoying.  He always seems to appear just about the time I am either done playing or out of lives.  Also annoying.
