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.

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??

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.

Let those kingdoms sleep!
Simply dreadful "game" and so unlike its predecessors on just about all levels. Like many, perhaps most, HOG players, I use the game to relax. That means no timed sequences, no penalties, well lit scenes and no head hammering pop ups. This game fails all. Skip it.

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!!!

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!

It wasn't broke...why fix?!
The Awakening series has always been a must buy for me...until this one. The popups made me quit and uninstall after 15 minutes of playing. Such a disappointment!

Not my style
This game has too many pop-ups. Just let me play!

Rip off of the Awakening series
Awkward movement through the game. The "plot" is to fix destroyed buildings by earning or buying points. You have to click on a task which opens a screen that describes the task. Solve the task. Then click on the reward and wait while stars float up to the scorecard. Then click on the next task. etc. If you want to move along just buy points with actual money.
As an added treat you get to watch all the other players wander around as well.
Did not like the skill level (very low), art, lack of plot, or buying points.

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.
