    I cannot comment on the latest levels, but I find the challenges harder for the amounts of papas we get. We could do with a few more ;)

    Oh yeah, good point Queen Mia! I meant to get back to you on the aiming thing. It works ok, but when you try to move it (slightly) it either doesn't move or it moves wildly. I think it still needs a little tweaking, but not that much, at least. As for other feedback, the Team really needs to stop making it so you only have one or two Papas extra to clear a level because it is unfair and frustrating to the point where a lot of people have stopped playing this game (and Diamond Diaries is next because they are doing the same thing on that game) and they think King doesn't care, which I KNOW is not true. I also get frustrated to the point of quitting and this just has to change. It is not smart to drive players away like this. King needs to stop trying so dang hard to make levels challenging bc the only thing that they are doing is making it not fun to play and chasing people away. Get with it King. Seriously. Listen to the players and not your wallets. If you build a fun game, the players will come...my apologies to "Field Of Dreams" for stealing that. If you keep going the way you are with the levels being so hard that you need boosters just to clear them...then don't cry when people leave the games and your wallets start to suffer for it. I actually can't wait for the next PaPS challenge because besides this last one, which was really BAD, the one or two before that were really fun! Challenging, but fun. Take this to heart. I have been playing this game for a long long time and I know this game in and out. I truly love it. :)

    I have found the aiming ok for lower objects but it would be nice to have it straighter for the higher ones. The arrow curves and its harder to aim it.

    Chicken Slayer is so right !! There seems to be an aiming issue. I thought it was just level 916 where that pole is in my way. My aim is going down as well, can't even do a bank shot. Can't knock out the multiplayer pins, cuz they put them right up against that pole. Please move that pole !!  

  • level 922 is terrible, I only get 15 papas while my friends get 19. There is no way you can complete this level with only 15. I check every day to see if it is fixed and more papas added. I will not even play as it is a waste of time.

    Hi Eileen. Who gets 19 Papas? I have been playing on an Android phone and an Android tablet, and I just checked and I now have 20 Papas on this level! Can you make sure your Papa Pear app is up-to-date? I don't remember (I had cleared this level days ago) but I could have sworn I'd had 15 Papas also. :) Good luck!

    might come back to this with more specific things but: a)it's annoyed me that having completed all available games/episodes, I'm then not offered the challenges.  Have now realised wassup and have to force myself not to play through, but it's weird (all other king games try to encourage you to play every day/more frequently).  b)There are bugs, and even if you report them the answers aren't satisfactory- eg on the last challenge I had spare papas when I completed the game but the pop up said I'd failed for running out of papas, and the response assumed it was I'd run out (even when i'd made clear the reason for reporting it).  There are many more sorts of routine bugs that I don't bother reporting, but it does make it unfun. It is nice having to work out how to play a game (my friends think it's just pinball, but actually this game is good for it being about problem solving. the gestalt moment when you see a different strategy makes it perhaps one of my favourite king games).  I really wish there were more episode releases/challenges.  (I don't, though, go back and try and 3-star all the levels as I do for other games as papa is far too variable for that to be fun).Also, and this doesn't just apply to papa- GRRR! lots of us play with the sound off.  And don't want it on.  It's annoying/embarrassing/inconvenient to have to turn it off each time.

    Also, because there are so few new games/I've not had access to challenges, I've got no idea what all the boosters do.  The icons for them are meaningless.  Would probably use them if I had a clue.Do want to say more about the type of games I like so we can see more of them but will have a wee think.

    Pippin, you should have gotten the challenge regardless if you had cleared all the episodes or not. I have cleared all of them and I still had the challenge. Remember, the challenges are time-limited...usually 72 hours or so or more, so if you miss them and they end, then you won't see them. I can't imagine that you missed that many hours of a challenge, so I don't know why it didn't show up. As for answers, sometimes the answer from King is there is no answer, but the scenario you have described should have been answered definitively. Did you post here about it? If you used the contact form, I am not sure what happened there. I can ask the Moderator about the challenge and how you didn't get a reward because it said you had failed, but I'm not sure there is much they can do now that it has been over for a while. I totally agree with you on the problem-solving part of Papa Pear, and that is what makes this my "expert" game. I am more skilled in this game than any of the others, though Candy Crush Saga is right up there too. I prefer Papa Pear though, and I, too, wish they would hurry up with the new episodes sometimes. They are a very small team, so we have to be patient so they can do the episides and levels as accurately and correctly and as bug-free as they can. I get antsy waiting myself lol. I can't wait for the next challenge to come out, which may be soon, if I have my timing right. Ask about any of the boosters and I can help you with that. I spend an extraordinary amount of time playing Papa Pear as I said, so I know the game inside and out. If there is something I can't answer, I will find the answer for you. This post is a refreshing read and I thank you SO much for taking the time to type all that out! It was great to talk to you and I hope I get to interact with you more! Ask away, my friend. :) I am here to answer anything you need. Gladly. Have a great day!

    It is wonky to be sure...I don't know if it is just my touch-screen devices but it is hard to make tiny moves, especially short-shots. I know they were testing new aiming but it seems like the aimer either doesn't move when I swipe my finger, or it moves way too fast/much. It is really hard to describe...not all devices are alike. I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab A6 and a Moto Android phone.

    thankyou!! IDK why I don't see challenges- I'll log in and be told they're coming up, but then I'll log in when they're meant to be live and just see the same old 'coming soon' message. But if it's working for you, that's great to know, I'll test it out, thankyou!Yes, I'd posted my bug about the challenge and the response hadn't been great- it also happened in the most recent challenge. Nice to know someone else is playing at this level- none of my friends do (and I don't think there's a FB group), so compared to CC where we have a nice little band who play together when it's first released, it does feel quite a different experience.

    Aiming can be a pain. I'll find (using a laptop) that I'll have lined up but then it'll refuse to actually fire. Laura's spot on that tiny moves can be tricky (even on laptop). Also annoying is when you've practiced to work out a shot (and know from eg lining up on particular spots) that it's not always reliable it'll fire the same way.

    Hi @Robert, Welcome to King care. I will make sure this is passed over to the team straight away. The trouble is, when you email in, they can take a while to get back due to the volume of emails. Is it possible you could start a new thread? It would make it easier to track :)

    Could you also try this troubleshooting too please and confirm on the new thread if it helped or not, thank you so much!
