FTFA:

It is not clear if the woman had the breast implant replaced - she apparently had the surgery to boost her low self-esteem.

Well then, she asked for it.

If she had kept her real, smaller, superior tits, she wouldn't have had a single problem.

Is the game really that good, I hear about it tangentially from Facebook, but I kind of assumed it was another Farmville or Mafiawars.

Thankfully, no one of value was injured.

So... chinese people also deal with shoddy chinese-made goods?

Good. Maybe they'll have incentive to fix their QC issues.

Match-three game. Get far enough in and it's another Battletoads or F-Zero GX or Ghosts 'n Goblins. It will kick your farking ass without mercy.

It's basically bejeweled, with the added bonus of having to she'll out cash to advance in the mid to later levels.

Next time I bet she spends the extra 59 cents on the pressure relief valve.

I'll bet she was one angry bird after that.   She'll be having a few words with friends should they ever get implants.  I'll bet the amateur surgeon was happy though.  He had to draw something out of them all day.

This is why women should rest their boobs on a more natural surface when playing.

It's Bejewelled, but they add challenges, like get a certain score with only 30 moves, or "clear all the jelly" by busting candies inside the jellies, etc.

Some levels are frustrating and are PURE LUCK.

But, basically bejewelled.

For an EXCELLENT bejewelled type game, try "Puzzle Quest", I'm not sure if that is online or whatever, but my Mom bought it and couldn't figure it out so I "borrowed" it (forever) and it's great.

At first I was worried the game had violated some copyright and had been yanked, but I am relieved to see that is not the case.
Just exploding boobs. She'll get over it.

Well to be fair, all it takes to be "middle class" in China is about USD $15k per year.  But according to Wikipedia, there are 95 Chinese billionaires as measured by US Dollars.

Since I have spent some time developing games like this, I have a rather full, informed answer for you...

Essentially the game model is derived directly from the old "match 3 things and they go away" model.  More like Bejeweled than anythis else.  The twist they put on it is the special powers that some of the candies have (although, even this is mostly stolen from Bejeweled.)  They also set it up so that the levels are more "puzzle like", in that you have to figure out how to clear items off the board somehow.

And that last part is the thing.  And that last part is also what makes the game so frustrating.  They only give you a certain number of moves to solve the level.  They also only give you a certain number of "lives/attempts" in a given time period.  This last part is coupled with, "But you can give us $0.99 for this awesome powerup so you can solve the level you are so frustrated by."

What they DON'T do is make sure that there really IS a solution to every level.  The whole thing is totally random.  So, in many cases, all you can do is just keep trying and trying and trying until you finally get lucky enough to beat the level.  Unless you pay them.

In other words, they make the game intentionally, and more progressively, difficult, so that you may get SO DAMN FRUSTRATED, that you will actually start sending them money so you can beat the level.

Now, I have no actual evidence to back this point up...  But I've seen people who are playing levels in the 300's.  Some of the levels are VERY hard to beat unless you get really lucky.  So I can only imagine that the company's particular business model is working, and they are making money off the game.  I just don't think people want to admit it audibly.  Perhaps that's one of the reasons people are so damn frustrated with the game.

This. My wife sends them a buck every 10 levels or so.  She is at level 72. I take my lumps, sometimes getting stuck for as many as 6 days and I am on 56.  It's a money grab.

I got up to level 208 and it started frustrating me more and more.  Then about 2 weeks ago I decided that its not really a game if you get so frustrated with it, so I quit.  I don't think I'll ever go back.
 
2013-06-25 03:58:35 PM
Wait
-Basically Bejeweled?
-Have to pay later?

I'd rather pay up front and have RPG-style attack/defense combat system as well.

Well, thanks for taking the time to let us know that you didn't feel likde taking the time to read...

So, for that, you get another long post.  This time about Mafia Wars and Farmville.  Two completely different game models that are very successful for very different reasons...

Mafia Wars took off because of the quick social nature of it, and the RPM of being able to act like a tough guy.  But after you play for a little while, you begin to notice that other than the fantastic artwork (and the paintings really are awesome), and the somewhat interesting story lines, the game is rather boring.  You click a few things, and either level up or run out of energy.  It gets rather monotonous rather quickly.
In addition, the game is never ending.  No matter how long you play, or how hard you try, you will get stuck in a jam where it's simply impossible to progress - unless you give them a CC#.  Even then, maxing out every weapon you can, you can't really win any fights because you are never matched up with (or even able to see) people that are much weaker than you.  It's like being a tree where every other tree around you is the same size.  There may be smaller ones, but you're way out of reach.  So you can't crush them.

Farmville is actually a really great concept.  Not exactly original.  But the graphics are cute, and there are enough items to build some pretty cool looking landscapes without having to cough up any money.  Of course they encourage you to do so, for decorative purposes  The only real problems I found with that game is that, when you run out of room, there isn't much you can do to expand.  Well, you can.  But then what do you do with that?  And trying to rearrange a gazillion items is entirely too time consuming.  So before long, you kind paint yourself into a corner, as it were.  The other problem is that it's Flash based.  And that's a HUGE memory hog.  So, unless you happen to have a very powerful machine with a lot of RAM, it takes forever for the game to load.  And even then it tends to lag.
(Cityville, a main competitor has the exact same problems)

In any case, both games have made Zynga a lot of money.  And to this day, despite declining popularity, they are doing fairly well.
