Recent Dark Pattern Reviews

Advertisements reported on May 31, 2022
Without the premium subscription, I believe ads show up at the bottom of the screen? You can also use advertisements to get coins and tokens. However, I don't think it uses the (play a level) > (RANDOM AD) > (play a level) structure a lot of games use. I do have the subscription, so they could have changed it since I started subscribing.
Infinite Treadmill reported on May 31, 2022
Being a daily puzzle game, updated daily with puzzles, there will almost always be puzzles to do.
Premium Currency reported on May 31, 2022
Can pay real money to buy coins (to buy power-ups and easier modes) and to buy tokens (which, without a subscription, are used to unlock puzzles).
Recurring Fee reported on May 31, 2022
There is a premium subscription ($5.99 USD monthly or $35.99 USD annually) to unlock all of the daily puzzles and gain a certain amount of special edition keys daily.
Daily Rewards reported on May 24, 2022
Logging in daily gives you tokens, which are used to unlock puzzles.
Advertisements reported on May 24, 2022
The advertisements are not particularly intrusive, but are often used as options where you view an ad to unlock a puzzle or gain currency.
Infinite Treadmill reported on May 24, 2022
There are new sets of puzzles daily.
Premium Currency reported on May 24, 2022
