  • Annoying ads

    by Adj2323

    This is an enjoyable game however the ads are incredibly annoying. Every time you go to the store to buy ( or even look) a video ad pops up and you cannot 'X' out of it. I would have given 5 stars but the ads are too frustrating.

  • Need friends

    by Leelo rawr

    I love this game but I have no friends playing it I'm leelofish

    by Diamondwsr

    My son got this game but I am mom and I play it every day. Very cute and lots of fun!!

  • 24 hours Of fun


    I like this game very much but I hate when I tap something and it says the shark whatever his name is

  • Parent and huge supporter!!!!

    by (:tigger:)

    Extremely age appropriate for the pre-adolescent age group. This game will teach your child responsibility, the value of what things cost, how to manage keeping within a budget,and the satisfaction of being able to purchase items from the nursery with sand dollars, alge, and pearls that he or she has earned themselves and has not just had the items bought and paid for buy a parent.

  • It's fun

    by LindsayGFaulkner

    It's a fun game!:) I like it

    by Baby fun yayyyyyy


  • Great game but......

    by Amblewett

    Every time you add from the nursery why all of a sudden is there pop up ads now????? Remove ads And I'll give 5 stars.

  • Super fun to play ☺️

    by Cindiloo78

    Lots of fun and the little ones love building there own tiny aquariums.

  • Nemos reef

    by Winmouse2

    I like the game. It's colorful and fun. The only prob is that I need more space . The reef grows too slowly making it difficult to complete tasks. How do we make the reef grow bigger? As an update the server is down for 2 days now. What is the problem? Do you all even review these comments? A shame that you can't somehow communicate and give us an update

  • Older fun

    by Emobunny:P:ap

    This was actually a lot of fun, even though I am 18. I guess that goes to show you're never too old for Disney. All and all, a lot of fun, entertaining, and great graphics. Visuals were great, music was wonderful. The only complaint is that it could use a bit less ads. But if you've ever been to Disney, (I live in Florida so it tends to happen) you grow to understand Disney is pretty money grubbing so it's come to be expected.

  • Love this app

    by Pooh postal

    Great app, I like that you can learn about reefs and the fish.

  • Sever issue

    by Caw930

    I can't ever get to a server

  • Nemo's Reef

    by Gammy529

    Graphics are great. Bruce showed up & the game locked up. Now what? My grand kids loved this.

  • Could've been fun

    by Zimmy7mm08

    This is a game that could have been fun to play but never really was. The game frequently gives you tasks you can not complete. Even if you buy resources, there is no guarantee you will be able to complete the task. The game also does not give you credit towards tasks for things you have already done. For instance, if the task is to grow a specific plant or coral, and you already had it before the task was assigned, you will have to grow another one to complete the task. The game is stingy with rewards so you spend most if your time waiting and harvesting resources. It takes 72 hours to get 1 pearl from a rare fish! If you spend the resources to grow a rare plant, and it turns out to be a species you already have, it means nothing. The only time growing a rare plant counts towards a task or attracting new fish is if it's one you don't already have. Thus, you must spend TONS of resources to grow LOTS of rare plants to get anywhere in the game. There are also a lot of adds that pop up and you can not continue the game until you have watched the whole add(even though some adds say you can skip them after so many seconds, I have never been able to skip them). Frequently, the game freezes in mid-add so you have to close the game and open it up again. Needless to say, the game became more annoying and frustrating than it was worth, so I'm done with it. I recommend against downloading and playing it unless they fix the bugs and overhaul the game.

  • Ehhh

    by AmandaaaBbyyy

    Fun at first but after a while it gets annoying and time consuming.

  • Fun

    by Emily104

    It's fun but to many ads

  • My wife and kids like it

    by J & S Martinez

    And if they are happy, I'm happy.

  • Fun

    by Wow factor!

  • Yellow sponge bed

    by Mferrell4

    Really great game, but one of my "quests" is coming up about seven times on the side, and part of it is to harvest from a yellow sponge bed, but when I try to, it force closes and some times resets the harvest time without giving me credit. Very frustrating to wait 6 hours again and again and have it continue to not work.

  • Fun

    by Queenpoopiehead

    Very fun. Very addicting.

  • Love the game but

    by Kristyswmsbg

    I love this game but I broke my phone and had to reload my game and lost all my info. They make it to difficult to recover your reef. But I really love the game itself.

  • Nemo's Reef

    by Karrn1

    Great app. Fun, interactive, and entertaining! Definitely a MUST HAVE!

  • this game rocks

    by Only me says this

    this game rocks

  • Great!

    by Lawrence Volovski

    Awesome game, I just wish the rewards for tasks were a bit better!

  • Game

    by Hero58477

    Wonderful game very time management game but love it

  • Nemos Reef

    by Meeekaa

    Great for short entertainment, but kids can't get the pearls to finish tasks without having to buy them.

  • Really cute!

    by Robert Steach

    Such a cute game! Love it!

  • Disillusioned

    by Moochita

    When I first started the game I thought it would become somewhat addicting. That feeling ended after my first homework assignment. I planted my 8 rare plants, grew them and when all 3 stages were complete I ended up with 1 rare plant. So I didn't get any reward and am missing 7rare plants. I haven't checked a homework assignment since. I don't care about it anymore.

  • Amazing game love it so interactive

    by Monkey306

    Love it so fun attracting new fish and growing new coral! Love it!!!!!!!!!

  • Constant commercials

    by Sleepycatss

    This app is ok but it constantly plays advertising and gets annoying, there's not much to do on here and the plants/corals exc don't display what it's for so there's kinda no goals in the game plus you can only visit 1 friend a day which is stupid -.- plz make this game more fun it's not rly worth playing when there's not much to do and with a ton of advertising

  • Great game but needs to give more pearls

    by LVGMA4

    I love the graphics and the game is fun but it is hard to keep up with the algae plants need to grow and fish need to eat. The treasure chest also cost to many pearls to open. The only way to go up levels is to spend a lot of real money to buy them in the store.

  • Love the game, but now it won't work

    by Kh22304

    I've had this game for several days now, and it's addicting! Once I reached level 12 my game won't start. It loads 75% of the way then closes and takes me to the home screen on my iPhone. So now if I delete it, I'll loose everything I've grown so far. If it worked it would be worth the download!!

  • Great

    by goodspeed2013

    so addictive


    by Ahgakekhgjajjrnbd

    This is such a fun game gunna play it every day till there's nothing mo'to do

  • This is an awesome game

    by Riley brown

    Same thing

  • Not bad

    by Mdt02052005

    I agree I live the colors, but it seems they are always asking for more money to complete something in the time frame.

  • Great and beautiful game

    by Emily230

    Great game! My reef is beautiful and I started it less than 24 hours ago and ALREADY have literally tons of money!

  • horrible support if you have more than one device

    by Knick Knomme

    tech support cannot seem to restore my inapt purchases on all iOS devices. Unfortunate.

  • Review

    by Findingnemobabe

    It's ok

  • Awesome but...

    by Chesca123

    I mean come on Disney you can get so much money but you decide to bully kids out of there money to make there reef acceptable to a peer pressuring fish that thinks your reef is lame until you buy stuff with real money. But I can't complain this game is really addicting... ;D

  • BEWARE: Disappointment

    by BigPPbutt420

    BEWARE: As soon as you start getting somewhere in this game, it continually force closes. I have emailed Disney mobile and asked for a fix but it has been 3 weeks and not only no answer but no fix. Its extremely disappointing so head my WARNING: whoever made and/or fixes this app, doesnt care what you think. NOT WORTH THE AGGRAVATION, trust me! Just another sad app that the creators dont care about those who play, whats this world coming to. Satisfy the customer, not yourself!

  • FUN!!!

    by Smileabc123

    Love the game! I discovered it this morning, but my sister got it yesterday. I'm already on level 7. It's a great game and you should definitely get it!

  • Great game level 30 now

    by KimWarder

    Very fun! Visit my reef and get lots of goodies! Patches of 500 sand dollars or 390 algae!!! EspisReef

  • Stuck Quest

    by Hadhighhopes

    I have a quest that wants me to move 4 grown fan corals. I've done this multiple times with multiple fan corals, I eve grew new ones with no luck. Incredibly irritating.

  • Great game!

    by Kyc98

    Got this for my son but I play it now. I'm on level 25. I love Nemo and I have become obsessed with getting all his friends back to the reef. The last friends I earned was Peach and Jacques. The recent holiday theme was fun too! Now I want to go into some feedback: I enjoy the challenges but would like to earn pearls instead of XP. I would like to see an inventory of what I have on the reef and I would like to see a list of the tips I have earned so I can better my reef vitality. And I think the 6 pearls for every chest is too too expensive! Hope someone can work these in

  • Super cute!

    by CasablancasGrl

    My toddler loves this game (with mommy's help). She likes the sounds, fish, building the reef. Super cute!

  • Doesn't work not work a start

    by Saditdesntworknemore

    Won't connect to server. Very disappointed with this app!!

  • Help

    by TequilaCat1987

    My friend and I really like this game and added each other so we could do quest together, but every time we try to visit each other or do a quest it tells us that the other person has not downloaded the game. How do we fix this?

  • Cute game

    by Tdiaz14

    This should be through Game Center so it can be played on multiple devices. It's cute and fun though.

  • Love it, but...

    by Hdsvfjvsh

  • Nemo Reef

    by SadMom1234567

    At first the app was really cute my daughter had a great time with it until I spent $10 on getting pearls for her and then the very next day the entire game was lost she lost all of her plan all of her fish and it started back at square one. The bad thing is I didn't even regain the pearl so I lost all the money that I put into the game. And there's no customer service to help you out

  • Mrs

  • But....

    by Alexandra21

    Enjoyed the game until I did an update and lost it, have been trying unsuccessfully for a month to get it should be easier, maybe through the Game Center or FB...I have emailed customer service and they keep routing me to the help blog, where they are telling me to do the same steps I already did...this is ridiculous!!!

  • Fun App

    by Boss Evan

    Very fun game

  • Nemo's Reef

    by Fps11

    Awesome fun

  • Great fun!

    by Cantankerous Corgi

    Love this app!

  • Pearls..?

    by Kenzie1948429

    We need to be able to want pearls or harvest them. Not enough are given for what is needed. Great downfall.

  • I give it 3 stars. Rip off when it comes to purchsases over 99 cents.

    by ontheverge1482

    Fun game to play, but right after you purchase anything more than 99 cents, the game automatically resets and puts you back on level 1 and you lose EVERYTHING. I contacted Disney Games support over 1 week ago and I still have no response. The only way to contact them is by going to their website and sending them an e-mail, with all of the information they SHOULD already have. I will no longer be putting any money into this game. If you have kids, my suggestion is for you to remove your card information until you are ready to purchase something from itunes itself.

  • 0 stars

    by AT1sreef

    I would give it 0 stars if I could. Absolute worst customer service ever. Do not ever allow your operating system to update or your profile will disappear and you can never get it back because customer service is so horrible and will not restore it. Be warned!

  • Ambivalent!!

    by Waterlilly01

    This app is good in some ways but I can't get past the fact that the rewards supposedly earned & the contents of the mystery chests are never added to the totals for algae, sand dollars or even atmosphere. This makes the so called "Homework" a joke. This game is supposed to be geared toward children. Does Disney Pixar need money so badly, they have to lie about rewards, thinking that children will not notice?? Evidently, most adults miss seeing this as well. It takes away a lot of the fun when one has been building their reef to suddenly realize this. It is also disillusioning for children. For those just starting their reef, watch your totals & decide whether you want to invest in the game anyway.

  • Great game for the grandkids!

    by BoDaeShus


  • Cool game

    by Jegillis

    Like the game but looses my 4yr olds attention when it takes a while for things to happen.

  • Like the game but....

    by ugafunshine

    I can't utilize the same reef across multiple devices (iPhone/iPad). That is a big negative to me since my family has multiple devices the kids use to play on.

  • Fun just....

    by Hope4meyet

    Fun app, needs more challenges per level and ways to earn more XP. I just reached level 19 and performed the few quests with a lot more points to earn before level 20.

  • Can't put it down

    by Haphab

    Very addictive! Lots of fun. Amazing how quickly it all comes together. Must have for families!

  • 666

    by JamieJo76

    One of the last quests require me to harvest 666 sand dollars, huh heck no, Where's my DELETE button!!!

  • Fun game, but ...

    by CraZiiChiCk!!

    This is a very cute and fun game. It's creative, but the times to build your reef takes too long. Also they don't give you a lot of pearls, so you have to spend money to get them. Otherwise no complaints.

  • Very fun

    by Chobiz

    This game is super fun and addictive, love it :)

  • Great fun

    by Rises460

    Lots of fun!

  • Great graphics and color! Entertaining if you love the ocean :-)

    by PeachAct204

    Great app!

  • Ripped me off hook line and sinker

    by Knick Knomme

    Support non existent in getting same reef on multiple devices Perhaps a fix may happen in the future but company may be too big to provide adequate--not even good--support Steer your devices clear of this reef Or never make an in-app purchase!!!

  • Game

    by Dmg1981

    I love this game! Highly addictive if you like making things

  • Loved it until

    by Robin204

    Updated yesterday, January 2,2014, now it won't open! What the heck happened?

    by Brewing Sailor

    This is good for travel and waiting rooms.

  • beautiful art

    by sikrn

    wished it moved quicker

  • Fix the app now!!!

    by Mcbria1

    I have had this app since it was first released. After doing the last update a month ago it will not open. I'm so disappointed. I've played and built my reef for almost a year and now I can't even open it.
