Poor excuse for a game where you have buy a solution as part of game
I thought this game could be fun and it started that way. However, to get necessities to continue you are almost forced to spend real money to buy food, materials and other needs to move forward in the game. Nothing is stated in the start of this necessity. I kept playing side challenges rather than "buying" needed items but you then spend all the time doing these side challenges. I quit even though the graphics, challenges and sound were great.

This game along with "Midnight Castle" just takes too long to get any results. I only play it to kill time for food to grow on "MSM"!

Awakening Kingdoms.... Huh?... a rude awakening :\
I loved all the Awakening series games... was excited with this concept yet overall, this version to me was like being given a nice, big, beautiful box of decadent chocolates and each time I reach for one, someone pulled my hand away ... insisting me to wait a minute... here's what type it is and this is how you need to eat it and, oh... if you want more of these nice chocolates, you will need to pay for each one as you go.. what?
In this case, Awakening Kingdoms, of course, obviously isn't a box of chocolates, but a decadent game.... giving directions and needing me to pay money as I go along. All the interruptions just didn't make for an immersive gaming adventure. I'd rather have the learning curve up front, play a more fluid game, and pay before I play in order to truly enjoy my gaming 'indulgences'.
For those not minding how much their box of chocolates, eh, game, will cost, enjoy! ;}

I have all the games in the "Awakening" series so of course I tried this one. BUT was greatly disappointed. Way too many pop-ups. I can never get ahead--every time I earn enough money to do something I have to spend it all on energy snacks! Why can't Boom Zap put it out as a normal game that I can buy??

Wake up to the real intent of Awakening
When I first played this game I would have given it a 3. It's a fun diversion, but offers nothing special. Hey, it's free, though. Be aware of getting what you pay for. As you progress deeper into the game, it's obvious that the intent of the developers is to get you to buy extra coin. Quests become exponentially more expensive, but rewards remain the same. Have fun for a while, then move on to something else.

OMG, this is the worst!
This is easily the worst game I've downloaded. I'm a huge fan of Boomzap and have most all of their games. But I didn't like the latest Botanica and now this one. I won all of the Awakening games and it's my favorite series.
This game, after a really long download, was in your face popups constantly. Click for your next quest! Click to get your rewards! Click to upgrade the door! There are popups everywhere you look. There is absolutely nothing related to any of the Awakening games except the art.
The more you like the series, the quicker you'll uninstall the game. I lasted 9 minutes.
I really hope Boomzap does a real next Awakening game.

The "Awakening" series is one of my favs. Love the game play, graphics, story; but then you go and totally ruin a great game series with this "free" version, which is more like kingdom building type games - which I hate and never play. I want my fractured Hog game play back. Don't mess with what's working!!!

THIS IS NOT FREE!.....I was so excited to see a new Awakening game...then its one of these NEW AWFUL "FREE" games, that aren't free....if Big Fish doesn't figure out a way for us to NOT get notices about "FREE" games....I may have to find a new game source....this really really is not right...yes I know you can play it without buying stuff, but whats the chance of doing that...this is a real money maker for them, and I understand that as well, having my own business for over 44 years...but this is NOT how to have happy customers...GRRRRRRRRRRRRR

Wish I could play!
I love the Awakening games series and was looking forward to this one, the graphics look stunning. Alas, I have downloaded it three times and each time it comeswith someone else already signed on and thegame about 1/4 done. NO place for me to change players, no way to move except to reboot the computer. I know it's free but come on, BigFish!

Would never buy it
I liked the previous Awakening games, but this one is not the same. Too much on buying and rewards, etc. and not enough game play. Played it for about 10 minutes, but it was so boring and not worth trying to keep on playing. I would never buy it. But the scenes looked nice and also the music was pretty.
