Recent Dark Pattern Reviews

Daily Rewards reported on Jan 2, 2022
There's a puzzle of the day. You don't need to play it, but there are certain "quests" you can only complete by doing daily puzzles. Doing quests don't affect any sort of score or currency so you don't have to do them to enjoy the game.
Advertisements reported on Jan 2, 2022
Brief, five second ads after selecting a level.
Badges / Endowed Progress reported on Jan 2, 2022
The achievements or quests are minimal and don't help the game progress any more quickly or offer any advantages.
