Default In-Game Arcade Ads - They Need to Stop!

Hello everyone!

I've gotten so frustrated after trying to win a few trophies today that I had to vent to someone.

Does anyone else feel that the ads that show up in the arcade games are totally unnecessary? I played both Polarberry Jam and Zacky's Quest today, and in both of them I lost multiple lives due to ads switching in the middle of my game. It has to be about once a minute, maybe every other minute. How frustrating!

The ads are totally pointless because who's going to be paying attention to them while playing a game? I completely and totally understand ads outside of arcade games, as they are likely a big money maker for Ganz, advertising other Ganz products and outside endorsements. However, I strongly feel that the arcade in-game ads need to be removed. This change would speed up the game and the site in general.

Thanks for reading! Any feedback, positive or negative, would be appreciated!

May I ask how the ads caused you to lose a life? That confused me, LOL.

I agree. I especially dislike the moving ads inside of games. They are distracting and slow the whole thing down. I think ads outside of games are fine, but I don't care for the ones inside games.

LOL, it's okay

When one ad changes to another, it takes a 5ish second "pause", and in this pause I'm usually sitting on a log that knocks me off or a shell that sinks. Just my luck

Yes! I think their site would run much better without so much going on

When the ads change, it causes the screen to freeze up. Usually, after the ad changes everything that would've happened during that time it was frozen suddenly happens very quickly and you could lose lives because the enemies could've come at you during that pause, and because it's stuck or really slow, you can't move.

Oooohhhh. Thanks for explaining that. Ganz should certainly do something about this!

Yes, that's what I meant. It's very frustrating!

I know what you mean! I kept getting that Hoodwinked ad during games, like Picnic, and it messes up my path and I go off of the mat. It is most definitely frustrating! It slows us down and makes us get messed up.

And you're SO right. No one even looks at the ads during games.

Thank you! The Hoodwinked one is definitely the worst of them all because it is animated...that in and of itself takes a while to load, not to mention the game going on!

Yes, I know! That one is definitely the worst; however, I see 5 to 10 different ads per game.
