Question & Answers
I'm at level 25 with NO quests in 5-8 levels! HELP!
I am level 25 and I've had no new quests in over a half dozen levels! The only quests that are there require real cash to purchase gems, needing over $40.00 worth. The game driven quests have stopped coming. I have the golden hind. I have reached some points without getting anything, like reaching the second girl encased in glass to just name one. Mainly I cannot reach any new islands, they are all in clouds. I have two that say to complete a quest but no directions on how to complete them. One island says unlock pirate cove and the other says unlock the hidden city but no details on objective. I have bought things and spent about $100, I've been playing about a month, daily, and? Will they stop here and force the ~$50 in gem purchases to continue? I won't be forced. Have I wasted a month? Please advise. Thank you!

Hey Genesis, i've run into the second girl under glass too, but i still have a couple of quests to follow (at level 31). i finally broke down and got some rubies to build that mansion for that guy, which gave access to the island close to the start with the statue (with the emerald). That gives way to the the quest Cats and Cakes which apparently opens up the another piece of the board. Have you done that one yet? (I'm probably going to) I think they basically force you at this point to use rubies to get further into the game, or else be very very patient and slowly build houses and merchants ... maybe something will come up.
Ignore the previous user's comment about cheating, many are at the same level or higher after 2 months of play.

Wow, blastmaster, is that the attitude in this game, that if someone gets ahead in the game then they must be cheating? I've been idle enough to keep tapping for coins almost nonstop, and apparently just doing that alone causes me to level because I've leveled while only tapping for coins, with no finished quests during that time. Maybe the game is set up for leveling through frequency of tapping. So if Genesis made it to level 25, why does it have to mean that he cheated? Bah humbug. You guys....
It is clear that this game depends on people getting impatient and spending real dollars, but even when they do, they get blown off as cheaters? Come on. I don't think I'd recommend this game to others if that is the attitude.

Ok i just started playin a while ago Im level 20 and am not running into trouble but the game cant legally force u to buy coins or gems to continue, if u r patient u wont have to spend anything because if u had to it would be illegal

I'm on level 28 and haven't cheated! I too have reached special things in the trees without receiving anything for them and my map is stuck on the golden hind which I have etc. Think there is a bug and once fixed we'll all whizz along!!

I am almost to level 30 and my only real complaint is the "cost" of expansion. It seems to be more and more. It will cost more than the three ships and 23 merchants to keep getting land. I saved the old lady's kid then other issues popped up. Played withe the mermaid a few times and she is tighter than a casino's slot machine in this economy. It's not cheating to buy rubies or coins but they have decent prices if you buy, could use a sale every now and than like in modern war or kingdom age

I am at level 40. Only seem to go up when you harvest wood. Have not gotten any new lands to open up in over a month. I won't spend any rubies unless more achievements start coming up that can be accomplished and open new islands. Will keep trying just a couple of more days. I did get a new 2 day quest which requires fighting 4 pirates but am down to 12 hours left and haven't had any pirates around. This seems to be a poorly managed game and I would never recommend it to someone.
Answer from: Jahyra
At level 50 which appears to be the ceiling for levels. Now have my third challenge on a time limit....each time I fail because the pirates immediately dry up. I am ignoring requests to rate the game as I hate to give poor feedback. Potential for a good game but sadly appears more and more to be an excuse to drive the player to continuously spend. I don't have 200 rubies and can't get them this side of Christmas. No hidden areas opened up for the last month. Getting boring.
Answer from: Jewules
I have found that the game levels up when you chop trees from expanding land. I also have a button on the bottom left of the screen (above the map button) that always has pirates in it so I dont have to wait for them to appear. I have no problem expanding for land but I only expand when I new space to place a house or merchant and I continually buy these as log as I have money. I have also found that Tempe price of the land goes down if you wait. Three hours ago land costed me 14 thousand to expand and when I clicked to expand now it only coated 7 thousand. I am at level 31 and I find that I get a ruby every time I level up. Te best deal for the mermaids seemed to be the right column. I you click on the mermaid and the right column is more than six rubies try clicking on the mermaid again or try a different mermaid until the cost is six rubies. This option gives you a better Jane t getting rubies and often you get coins too. Hope this helps!!

The game is good but the owners are leaches, there is no reason to play this game unless you like being frustrsted about having to pay to advance, remove the game
