Each time you would do anything in the game, it goes into a "pause" state, then loads the full page ads, then you have to "back" out of it just "Wait" even more for the game to reload.

Imagine this on devices where a user has limited data. Eats it right up!


The ads I was getting were definitely downloading with 3G mobile data, because when I turned off mobile data, no ads appeared. My mobile data is pay as you use. I send a SMS to a special number requesting how much mobile data I wish to buy, and the amount is deducted from my total pre-paid account balance. That's how it works with China Mobile.

LOL Sims Freeplay must be a bad game, if the ads are better than the game. Like when a TV show is so bad, the ads are better. The offending game I referred to earlier didn't work properly, the start screens loaded but when I tried to play it, it froze and had to be force closed.
