Groovy Garage (Universal) - FREE




My gf played the Facebook version, now i'm playing the iOS one and we're pretty excited about this game.
It has a fun back-story, lovely animations and it's really addictive!
If you like social games this is a must have.

Facebook version? No.

"Social" in the description? No.

Nice train of thought...

Just two little mistakes...

Most people? Facebook today announced that nearly 200K mobile apps connect with Facebook. 45% of the top grossing, and what is more 9 of the 10 top grossing iOS apps integrate Facebook Connect. http://www.insidefacebook.com/2012/1...now-connected/

And... I didn't experience crashes on my iPhone, just some negligible bugs. My buddy has an iPod touch 4, he encountered crashes frequently for that matter. Then he found in the description that it's not a supported device.

I agree so much with you here. Those are both complete turnoffs. No thanks.

Seems like a must pass. Thanks for the heads up about facebook and other social media interaction. I value my privacy too much.

And? So? Farmville connects to Facebook. Is Facebook meant to imply quality in regards to gaming?

There ARE good games which allow the player to, say, post scores or achievements to Facebook. But I've never encointered a game developed FOR Facebook that was worth my time. And most have stupid micropurchases and timers.

Upcoming update

Hi forumers!

We've got a bunch of valuable feedback from our first release and are going to release an update that addresses all of the issues.

We're working hard to fix the reported crashes and also to improve the user experience by doing several minor bugfixes.

As for the Facebook login, it won't be obligatory in the update. Users will be only asked to use their Facebook accounts if completing a goal needs social interaction (eg. gifting). Since goals can be passed by using gears, Facebook login won't be neccessary at all.

Thanks for all your feedback!

We hope that you will enjoy this update!

Have things come to that? Facebook won't be neccessary at all?
I have come to believe that developers are listening to you...

No Facebook. Not compulsorily "social". Any other objection?
