Boring and Fake
by Masked Lord on 2019/02/16 02:00
Super fun for a very small frame of time, but gets extremely boring later. They games summoning system is obviously rigged.
Crap
by Clash Royale Knockoff on 2019/02/16 00:57
This is stupid.Its like Puzzle and Dragons Without Anime! And They Poorly Ripped it off! It’s way worse because it like bejeweled and Puzzles And Dragons its original. Horrible
Fun

Very fun and addictive game, you have to work a bit to get good items but it’s worth it, I play this game very frequently

Awesome game very addicting
Mostly good
by KTkitara on 2019/02/15 17:17
Really great game, aside from the hero acquisition. I can only give it 4 stars because that is all it will give me. I’ve spent too much money trying to get 5 star heroes and can’t upgrade my team enough to make it worth spending more. I hope they fix this - it has been a really fun few months.
Greedy game
by Timilme on 2019/02/15 17:02
You can’t progress in this game unless you spend a ton of money...
Fun
by Comish069 on 2019/02/15 16:31
Fun game the only thing about the game I would change is the time it takes to gain supplies and the raid role so far as I just started to play can’t find anyone my lvl but one
No Advancement
by Spencino on 2019/02/15 12:07
The game is very fun and has good guild group work. Unfortunately the developers are cheapskates so don’t expect to advance without spending a lot of money.
Awesome

Game is fun, but don’t spend money
by bookwyrm_86 on 2019/02/15 01:56
The game is fun to play and I enjoy the mechanics. That said, unless you are willing to pay massively, don’t bother with in game purchases. I buy gems to do 10x draws on events and rarely if ever get anything besides duplicate three star heroes. I’ve been playing for a year and have only one or two 3 star event heroes and two of the heroes of the month. Don’t waste the money, just chug along at an impossibly slow pace and enjoy the chat.

Beware when summoning
by Trydonart on 2019/02/14 22:49
I was so mad when I saved up 300 gems to get a hero that I wanted. When I selected it and it said are you sure you want to proceed with this and I said yes it summoned a totally different hero??? I do enjoy playing the game but it took be over a month to save up and then it summoned a lesser hero.... so mad

It’s an ok game.
by JessieThomas08 on 2019/02/14 13:57
It takes a really long time to build up your character roster. Do your self a favor don’t waist your money trying to get new characters by purchasing gems. Most of the time your going to get junk characters anyway. Just slowly build them up overtime for free.
Problem with recent update
by 1472053 on 2019/02/14 12:21
Every time I get to the queen and diamond guy at the end of the rare level 5 of the wonderland event I get disconnected. When I get reconnected I don’t get my word energy refunded. I have to go through the process again just to be disconnected every time. Please fix.
Pay-to-win
by AL, M.D. on 2019/02/13 21:21
Unfortunately - unless you pay, the game (around level 8-9) becomes impossibly rigged for you to lose ... and I categorize it as unfortunate, bc it *was* a fun game until that point ...
little repetitive, but fun game altogether
by lukain2reboot on 2019/02/13 20:43
Had a good time trying to teach my nephews this game. Even let them make a few in app purchases. They are into it and it keeps them from running around the house.
Great Game!
by nahhh0 on 2019/02/13 20:30
the game is great but i think that you should add trading or gifting. because my friend really wants to give me stuff but she can’t. so i would really appreciate if you added this feature!
Customer service
by 1080ego on 2019/02/13 07:16
Lost my full account and got no help getting it back. I’ve never been more disappointed in a developer.
Fun great game
by Brien253 on 2019/02/13 07:12
A great game once I got the hang of it great story too.
Fun but frustrating
by Kumbaka on 2019/02/13 05:29
Games a lot of fun but once you hit the 5 th map it gets really difficult to advance without spending money and the raids are incredibly mismatched. You will be placed in maybe two winnable battles out of every eight.
Trash
by OvOBrian on 2019/02/13 04:51
The app is really trash.
Not a game to expect to advance and having skill doesn’t matter having money to blow is key
by danny.v1986 on 2019/02/13 04:27
This game is addictive and can be fun but I will admit it rigged
Hooked?

I enjoy it
by Dkavatar97 on 2019/02/13 01:28
I really enjoy this game. My Android phone ended up breaking and I couldn’t get my profile onto my iPhone, but I enjoyed playing the game too much so here I am starting all over again.
Leveling up
by B0ss1ady11 on 2019/02/12 22:15
It says I have to level up the castle but I can’t cause my iron needs to be leveled up can’t level that up cause the castle needs to be leveled up. How do I do that
Good fun

Only been playing for a few weeks, but really enjoy this game!
Matchmaking needs to be fixed or I’ll stop playing
by Annoyed1633 on 2019/02/12 05:41
I’ve pretty much never left a review for an app but I really like this game so here I am. I’ve never played a game with a worse matchmaking system. It’s a waste of time and sanity, not to mention resources in the game that are hard to come by. Just let me play against players at my skill level without having to waste 600,000 in food JFC. And the penalty for losing to a team much better than you is so frustrating on top of it all, it’s enough to ruin what is a fun game
Review
by jay20000000000 on 2019/02/12 04:22
Like the game. Wish though the letter received on version 20 being out was out. I was confused to see no update. Only wish was that getting ascension items was made slightly better without giving the already powerful a over advantage.

It would be nice if you guys could add private message to other players!

This game is a lot of fun. It reminds me of my mmorpg days and how fun it was to be in a guild.

Puzzle me with Empires
by Crys4u on 2019/02/12 00:45
I love this game it is so addictive. I can’t wait for my energy to refill so I can keep on playing. Doesn’t require money, but it does help when you need gemstones at times. Always building up my teams and trying to get to the next levels with the puzzles and stories. You are constantly working on building up your Empire! The latest update though did give you the ability to level up maxed players, but I’m am finding it quite difficult to get the skill to level 8. One suggestion would be to have a smaller gemstone purchase of a 100. That way if you need gems to continue playing or to buy an energy refill you could do so!!!
Great game but...
by PMW716 on 2019/02/11 20:39
I love the game. I do, really. But there’s a few things that set me off. •the story mode is way too difficult to level up your characters and keep going •TOO MANY UPDATES it’s like every week I feel like I’m updating this game, it’s so inconvenient. Just make a big update instead of 10 little ones.
Money Grabber X 10
by Yager Bom on 2019/02/11 19:00
I get pay to play but this game is unreasonable. Even using in-game money (diamonds) is a rip-off. Requiring WAY too many diamonds to get a slim chance of acquiring mandatory ascension items is just rude. Also, since it takes unreasonably long to build, requiring addition money to temporarily add a 2nd builder is just more rude. I’m guessing you’d make more money by cutting these costs in half, as maybe more would actually find it worth it to pay to play this game. Just a thought. So, while gameplay is fun, if you don’t empty your pockets routinely, don’t expect to get too far.
Stats
by 2pipesloaded on 2019/02/11 17:15
The stats on your team is totally bogus I have been defeated on raids by players with over 400 less team power and it really makes me mad so I buy more diamonds so I can go back and defeat the lower ranked team and that’s one way they get you to spend money so really no way to tell if you have a chance to win and certainly not buy the bogus stats.
Uh

My favorite...until I raid
by blrrhaha on 2019/02/11 14:00
This is my go to mobile game everything is amazing EXCEPT THE RAID SYSTEM! No reason I should spend all my food looking for one decent match. Other than not matching raids with team power this game is 10/10
it's perfect minus...
by Darky Persian on 2019/02/11 12:02
As an experienced writer, i'm saying the only downside of this game is the storytelling and characterizing aspects... i love this game and for a year it's the only game i've spent so much time, money and energy on, but if they could work on those two aspects i said above... then i could say without any doubt the game is perfect!
Fun but expensive
by Redak239 on 2019/02/11 06:34
Fun game, good ideas. Payout for money put into the game pretty lacking compared to other games. Be prepared to spend if you want to get any good hero’s. If you get in a good group that teaches you will find this game entertaining.
Garbage
by Klutw on 2019/02/11 06:00
Your ranking means nothing, it’s seriously about nothing but money with this game. If you have money to spend (a lot) it’s a great game. By the way, when you do “raids” the team power means squat.
Good app, but it has problems
by MangoMarieMeow on 2019/02/11 05:44
This app is fun and really great, but it can be annoying. When the app tries to get people to buy stuff for them, they make very helpful things hard and annoying to get. It takes more than 84 hours to upgrade to upgrade the stronghold, which is super annoying, and also, they only give you one builder, so now I have a ton of food and I can’t upgrade anything else until it’s over. But for the good qualities of this app, it’s very fun to collect heroes , play against players, etc... but if I had to recommend one thing for this app, than I would say that they should open a trading booth. Like where you can trade hero cards for others, which would be very helpful in the app. Overall, it’s very nice to play and a good game to play when bored.
Do not download
by Newrevo on 2019/02/11 04:38
I have put so much time, effort and money into this app just to be constantly set back on progress. In order to get far in this game quickly you have to buy gems and more to just get anywhere. You don’t have to but to get involved with the game it is a very...very slow progress otherwise. This game is addictive and to be free... I have sunk countless hours and way over my spending limit on a stupid mobile game that makes you want to win. I have been looking at the way you can get into raids... for example and play. Sometimes you advance, but other times the game pushes you back purposely to make you wanna pay to advance. I won’t recommend this game to anyone. It is a money pit.

by OhbesPuck on 2019/02/11 03:08
Yeah overall pretty fun. Generally well designed. Keeps you thinking both building base and battling. However, ability to build w/out spending $$ is tough.
Game is good but...
by Mikeyten246 on 2019/02/10 23:41
This game is really fun but I wish there was a trading system within the alliance that you are in.
Fun!
by JollyTrolli on 2019/02/10 01:46
For now it’s fun, have a feeling it’s going to turn into a pay to win game very fast!
Dishonest
by Macanudog on 2019/02/09 23:47
Everything about this game is great;except raiding.When you raid it doesn’t matter what you do,the game just makes you lose.Its not random,you don’t get the colors you need,the other guy won’t die,even when he has no life bar,and you die easily.I won’t spend a penny on this game until its fair. Hey developers, I’ll never spend a cent on this dishonest,cheap game. I’ll play it but I’ll never pay! This game stinks. Whoever is behind it stinks too. I was gonna buy the Christmas special but then I lost twenty times in a row so forget it.Twenty times!That can’t be equal odds. Never spend a penny on his game, starve the developers until they give an honest game.It doesn’t matter what you do,you’ll lose your raid unless you pay.

by MCPhatPat on 2019/02/09 19:20
good game really fun
It is what is but can be fun at s risk
by C from the bay area on 2019/02/09 10:17
Let’s face it, the reviews you see about people complaining about all the money spent are 100% true!!! You can play this game without spending tons of money but it might get tedious and boring. You can also drop loads of cash and still hit s brick wall because you don’t have rare items to level your heroes with. The money complaint is ridiculous because most of the interactive games cost money to play now. Yes, we’re all fools for paying so much to play the same games o we and over. I’ve been playing this game for almost 300 days now and I like it. It isn’t as stressful as games like GOW where it’s all about spending. As I stated earlier, you can play with small amounts spent or none at all but it might bore you. Join an alliance and play twice a day and you will level up but not as fast as some who spend. The big complaint is that you can’t trade items in your alliance to other, you can’t trade or buy needed items (which I understand the buying part because that can make the game turn into a pay to play), but at least you should be able to trade the awarded items for ones you need. I have 20 worm capes and need 1 hidden dagger. I’ll give up 10 of those capes for this item but I can’t. That is fair so players can grow. You also can’t do some of the basic chat groups or copy and paste as in other games. Overall, fun game that takes time but it won’t cost you an arm and a leg unless you want to spend it.
Amazing game

I so love this game. I am obsessed with it. All other games have gone by the way side.
Possibilities for next update
by DyzeeG on 2019/02/08 15:08
I love the game but I really wish we were able to practice and spar with other alliance team mates and challenge other players. It would be awesome if you could trade heroes between alliance members as well. Other than that it’s a great game keep up the good work.
Awesome
by CyndyML on 2019/02/08 14:17
As far as I’m concerned, this is the best game out there. It’s like they took the fun parts of other games, and put them all in one. Gem matching for the battles, town building for infrastructure, hero cards for strategy... PvE for basic fights, PvP for raids, team PvP for wars. Find the right alliance for yourself, whether you want chatty, intense, casual... it’s all out there. They even have auto play if you want to redo lower levels for rewards, so you can do real life and just tap and have it go! You can definitely play for free. I did for awhile, but my personal philosophy is that if I like a game and play it a lot, then I want to pay the game makers for the product. I do pay for this game (get a feel for the deals, and wait for a sale). But, I get a ton of fun from this, and play it a lot, and I love my alliance which has terrific people in it, so I am getting good value. If you spend money on games, then I suggest setting an annual limit, and looking for deals along the way. Like I said, just personal philosophy; you can play for free with no problem, just advancing slower than those who pay something.
Great Work
by Shadow Lord 1 on 2019/02/08 13:32

by hippie421 on 2019/02/08 02:49
You can not get what you need to ascend your team. No matter what you play, it’s not a fair game when you do raids, I have a team almost 3000 power yet a 2000 can beat me up. I’m ready to delete this game. Other than that it is fun.

Fun game. Been playing for a year now. Spent about $400 so far. There are people in my clan that spend $1000 a month. Can’t be competitive without spending some $$$.
Awesome
by Sp7tst@7 on 2019/02/07 22:15
This game is crazy for people who love to rule over an empire and pretend like they’re actually in the game. A great game for night time and when you need to get away. I totally recommend this app for ages 6 and older!!
Stop the tutorial
by X51RocketExtreme on 2019/02/07 21:01
This game is sort of fun but I’m stuck in the tutorial. Why can’t I just play the game and figure it out myself very annoying. Also the hints that come ever 1-2 seconds make this game too easy.

by jibrno on 2019/02/07 08:42
It’s a fun game, but only if you spend a lot of money. They don’t listen to there fan base and I don’t see the game lasting. They are pushing away the ones that enjoy the game.
New updates

by shayde-lee on 2019/02/06 20:31
I hate being pushed after three days of play to buy with real money to move on without crawling progress. Also the fact I had no choice but high level players in pvp so I alway lose. Rigged and not worth the download
Pay to play
by Jedi 4590 on 2019/02/06 17:43
Oh you don’t have to spend money but it’s so hard if you don’t, especially now with all the new added buffs to hero’s, if your looking for a new game this isn’t it. Save your money and go elsewhere.
Fun Game, but not free, pay to play!
by Release Your Lock!!!! on 2019/02/06 16:36
Don’t play thinking you will get anywhere with strategy, it takes bank and lots of it!
It’s a lot of fun

You can still play and advance without using real money and it is well laid out game.
Extremely poor customer and app support
by Trnnp on 2019/02/06 02:55
I and many alliance members have had extremely poor customer and app support from the game. Disciplinary actions are very subjective and enacted without explanation, warning, or a chance to defend oneself. Examples: 1. An opponents team member had 7 flags in war when there can only be 6. There was only one person in the opponents alliance that had that name. Reported it to support as a bug or cheat. Support responded by saying that it was impossible and that no investigation was warranted. The ticket was closed although no resolution nor explanation could be given. Repeat reports have had no response. 2. An alliance member had a systems error occur where he bought $100 worth of gems equaling 10,000 gems through the game. He was given 20,000 gems which he promptly used. The error was identified by the game. So how did they choose to resolve this error? The game docked him 10,000 gems meaning his balance was -10,000 gems. Why is he being punished for the systems error??? 3. An alliance member went into what he thought was a dead alliance to recruit or see if they would want to merge with our group. He was reported as attempting to steal members which was felt to be disrespectful. The game punished him by banning his ability to talk in the game for 2 months including public forums AND alliance chat. The game-either SG or new administration Zynga-does not value its customers. This is seen by their response to game play issues. If it weren’t for the friends that I have made in game, I would have quit long ago. I still may since I communication is now being restricted as well.
Best. Game. EVER.

Massive cash grab
by DaddioWA on 2019/02/06 01:33
This game is no different than any other of the cash grab-like games that force you to spend some amount of money to succeed against others where the more you spend the more stacked your deck is in terms of hero’s and resources. Not casual friendly in the slightest bit.
The best game

by imthegreatestloser on 2019/02/05 01:32
There are a lot of aspects of the game that seem to be rigged such as the raids or the hero’s that you are able to get by working the game to build your team instead of just paying cash to power up quickly. However the maps and Titian fights are fun so ya gotta take the good with the bad
Good game
by Damikesta on 2019/02/05 00:58
I guess the best way to explain it is like bejeweled and clash of clans got married. Sounds weird I know. But there is a lot of room for strategy in this game. And you can join other members and start an alliance. Give it a try.
?
by ab020419 on 2019/02/04 23:28
Rate this love because like some say it make you spend a lot of money in order to compete, they should put just diamond prices foreach individual hero, like 5 star been the more expensive instead of spent too much money without knowing what you getting! I almost spent 100$ and only two 5 star heros! I will pay 10$ for a 5 hero easily
Great but...

I really like this game. It reminds me of another game that's kinda similar but I don't remember the name. It would be better if it didn't crash so much. I was looking through the alliance list and it decided that it wanted to crash for no reason. Nothing pisses me off more than games crashing.
Major Rip Off!!!
by Trex2106 on 2019/02/04 19:54
Let me start of by saying I think this game is really fun, however the reason I am giving it a one star is because the raid system completes destroys the point of the game. I don’t understand how teams that are way inferior to mine can beat me 5, 6, or sometimes more times in a row. What is the point of upgrading and making your heroes so powerful if weaker teams can beat you and sometimes just plain humiliate your team. That seems like a big middle finger by the creators of this game to all its players. It’s a MAJOR RIP OFF!!!!! I’m getting to the point that if this is not fixed soon I will deleted this app!!!!! FIX THE RAID SYSTEM NOW!!!!!
Is what it is
by Suvarius on 2019/02/04 19:21
This game is a decent waste of time my favorite part is that it’s not full of ads they do want you to buy jems and other micro transactions but you don’t have to watch a 30 second advertisementIn between every action you take like other games
Very Nice Game
by gazerofheaven on 2019/02/04 15:43
At first I was skeptical about this game because it looked like another “spend 5 grand and be the best mmo rpg on the server” type of game. I’ve played other games that were mobile specific, and they purposefully make it so that you can’t get the best items or best characters unless you spend a lot of money to get them. When I saw the diamond spending system, I cringed, but was pleasantly surprised as I got more and more familiar with the game. For one thing the diamond system is not the only way to get the best items or characters in the game. And if you are so inclined to spend money to get the best characters, it won’t break your bank. I literally spent 20 dollars on the game and got a full elemental team that was 3 stars or higher. Great for me in the sense I don’t feel like a newb and I can battle with people who had been playing for at least 3 months or less. The micro managing elements in this game are very easy to understand and very strict about leveling. If your “kingdom” is not level 5 than none of your buildings in the kingdom can be level 5. The programmers for this game realized that we can prevent someone from becoming over powered overnight and still encourage the users to build up storage, mines, and farms to appreciate the games mechanics even more. The leveling feature of each character is something I greatly enjoy. It gives the user the sense that buying the best character doesn’t mean you’ll be able to destroy the competition, and you have to put in some decent effort to reach higher standing. The ranking system alone makes it very nice to be able to knock the top three across all servers down a peg or two every day. The fighting system is based on luck and skill. Taking into account all characters abilities and elements, with just a hint of luck for that 15x combo you desperately need to defeat your opponent. All in all, I really enjoyed this game and I hope to make it through all stories just to get my team up to all 5 stars as well. 😊
Well designed long term mobile game
by applekat311 on 2019/01/11 21:25
I am a long time gamer of all varieties. I take my hat off to small giant for this game. The game play is just right for a mobile device. It’s got enough flavors of puzzle, rpg, and world building to keep you involved. The story is campy and silly, but that’s fine, he game never pretended not to be a little silly—and I like that. There’s little bits of humor everywhere if you look. I’ve been playing for going on a year and change now. Still have stuff to do and hero teams to build. You also don’t have to spend money to succeed, at all. It helps, sure, but there’s no gating with money, just increases your odds of getting good stuff if you have more chances at the hero lottery, so to speak. It’s also the only mobile game that does group team building right for the small screen. Prepping for wars and strategizing how to win as an alliance of 30 some people has been the best part for me. Reminds me of when I used to have more time for games like WoW. Sure you don’t get the full immersion, but still get some of the feels with this little game. My only beef is what a lot of folks complain about, the raid system seems super unbalanced and is downright annoying at times. But, it’s apparent small giant are always working their butts off to tweak it, so hats off to them again for that. Also, this game is not for the impatient. Strategy is the log game sometimes.
Addictive
by Pretty stone face on 2018/10/20 13:15
I do like playing this game, I have been playing awhile and check on my empire frequently. Maybe too much. I especially like the match game twist, it’s a bit more engaging than an idle RPG. There is always a new mission or quest to complete. Titan to gang up on, Heroes to level up, or something to build or upgrade. It is very much a long term game, not for the impatient instant gratification types. I dare say you are better off not shelling out a lot of money for better heroes. If you take the slow steady approach you will have the ascension items before you need them most of the time. If you buy heroes you will end up having to wait for items to strengthen them far too often. If I were to make one complaint it would be how the raids are handled. Never mind your team power score, or even the multiple times they have revised how they are calculated, they have little bearing on your ability to win raids. It all comes down to how many special attacks you get off. Who ever makes the most special attacks, wins. Special attack energy is almost always slanted. The winner typical makes two to three attacks for the losers one. There will be seasons where it’s slanted in your favor, other times it will be slanted against you. Those rare times you are equally matched a raid can last upwards of 30 moves or more. If there were not rewards for engaging in raids, I wouldn’t bother doing raids. It’s that much of a nuisance.
New games, new names, same problems
by Al1223 on 2018/03/08 11:37
A needlessly elaborate schematic designed to confuse you into thinking you can play for free. Quickly gets too hard to do so. But more than the standard and expected money grab is the baffling added difficulty thrown at you to actually *play* the basic puzzle game. Upgrade a web of buildings in a long linear series to Recruit heroes to train heroes up levels to ascend heroes of five different types. With taking days to move each step. Why stop your gamers from playing? 1 star not for the money grab but the inane thoughts in the "boardroom" that this style of play is likeable by those that play puzzle matching games. Speaking of money grabs though. This developers here are masterclass. You can (and will) pay hundreds of dollars (I have spent close to 1000 on this game) buying *chances* to get what you need. And the chances are (not surprisingly) near zero. Exact chances? Guess. And you won’t have to guess who figured out that in their boardroom? You will be laughed at in that boardroom. Key items are kept from you from fully ascending you heroes though which can’t be bought. Ascending them *if* you get lucky and pay money is amazingly difficult at higher levels with months of grinding (during which time you will be spending more money). Honestly this game makes you wonder why anyone would deal illegal drugs. Here the developers have found something more profitable, zero material cost and somehow legal.
BEWARE!!!
by Kilo-g13 on 2018/06/19 09:22
To new players who will end up being suckers and spending money on a off chance you might, just mighty be lucky enough to get what you so desperately need for you to win just a bit more..... DON’T!! DON’T FALL FOR THIER TRICKS!!! There’s is nothing I can not stand more than a app like this who tempts poor unsuspecting sheep into slaughter giving up their hard earned money or allowance money for no and I mean NO GAIN! When you see other players with all the “top stuff” it is usually the game developers, betas or a friend of the app makers or they are fools and spent hundreds or sadly thousands $$$ so they will have all the stuff you dream about, that YOU will never be able to have! You’ll spend a small amount an might get a lil better then you will say yes i might be lucky and spend more and then before you know it you’ll be so deep in a hole with absolutely NOTHING TO SHOW FOR IT! It’s so disgusting of these type of game developers! They are no different than a casino a scratch off addiction and the drug dealer down the block getting you hooked so you’ll spend more! I’ve worked with people like this that make apps like this and that’s the reason why I don’t anymore! There are better ways to make big bucks on this app but to take millions from poor unsuspecting sheep is gross! Please players spend your money elsewhere or save it or don’t listen to me but don’t say you were never warned!
Hm. Not so much fun.
by mycastle4acloud on 2018/03/27 07:49
I started this as a fun way to do a match-3 game during my free time. Somehow, it turned into more of a chore than a fun adventure. The part I dislike the most, as some have mentioned, is the match-up during raids. I know the parameters and what they use to determine who you match with, but it still seems like it’s not fair either way and definitely not consistent at all. The amount of resources it takes to get anywhere in the game is a joke, even if you spend money, which is not a guarantee that you’ll get something you actually need/want. It would be different if, like other games, the money you spent got you what you needed all the time. But in this game, it’s a huge gamble and not worth the risk. I’m getting pretty tired of the whole process. It’s not fun anymore. The only good thing I kind of enjoy is the alliance I belong to, which isn’t even a high-ranked one, but it seems to have some fun people so I like that aspect. Now with the wars added, plus raids (which I still hate because there is zero consistency and the matching makes absolutely no sense still), plus the usual gameplay progression, Titans, AND quests/events... it seems like there’s too much going on in one game. Things happen so fast I barely get a chance to participate and that’s disappointing. Plus I feel to get anywhere in this game and to be a competitor, you have to spend money. Not cool.
Empires and puzzles
by Madre1961 on 2019/01/24 16:47
Customer Support is non existent. Been playing for well over a year. It takes a lot of time to play this game if you aren’t willing to spend money. So what is good, meeting other players and chatting. What’s bad, no trading post (the developers state they can’t provide this even though other games can) , the raids are a joke because the person can come back and get more points than you took, the challenges are fine until you get to the last level and then it’s so hard you can’t complete them unless you want to spend money. Saved all my gems for a ten hero grab, (where you have the chance for 3,4 and 5 star heros) and ALL ten were 3 star heros (statically impossible) not a single 4 or 5 star hero. When you complain to customer support, no help at all! But in the mean time they are upgrading things you don’t want or care about(like WAR which is another joke. I have tons of items I’ve won but it does nothing and is not useable. Oh and now my trading camp is fully loaded up, it takes food and iron for this. Now what can I use these massive levels of food and iron for? You can use some amounts for leveling players up but not this much! The rewards they give you are a joke. Now they have coins to earn but only on challenges (which you can’t complete) or chests (sometimes). Did I mention SUPPORT does NOT CARE, just a money grab.
Awesome
by CyndyML on 2019/02/08 14:17
As far as I’m concerned, this is the best game out there. It’s like they took the fun parts of other games, and put them all in one. Gem matching for the battles, town building for infrastructure, hero cards for strategy... PvE for basic fights, PvP for raids, team PvP for wars. Find the right alliance for yourself, whether you want chatty, intense, casual... it’s all out there. They even have auto play if you want to redo lower levels for rewards, so you can do real life and just tap and have it go! You can definitely play for free. I did for awhile, but my personal philosophy is that if I like a game and play it a lot, then I want to pay the game makers for the product. I do pay for this game (get a feel for the deals, and wait for a sale). But, I get a ton of fun from this, and play it a lot, and I love my alliance which has terrific people in it, so I am getting good value. If you spend money on games, then I suggest setting an annual limit, and looking for deals along the way. Like I said, just personal philosophy; you can play for free with no problem, just advancing slower than those who pay something.
TL;DR: Get this game!
by sarawithout on 2018/04/06 15:53
I love this game. Are there issues? Of course! But the game is engaging and overall fun to play. You can raid other players for trophies and resources (food and iron, the in-game currencies). You can join alliances and battle titans every day, and with a recent add-on you can now battle other alliances in epic PvP Alliance Wars. The biggest complaint I have seen is that the loot isn’t always great. No, it’s not. But if you got everything you needed to be able to ascend every single hero from titan loot, you would be bored with the game and complain that it’s too easy. The point of the game is to grow slowly at a marathon pace, not finish it in two months at a sprint. Sure, you can buy gems and get those epic heroes quickly, but you still have to play the game to get the materials needed to level those legendary heroes. There’s always going to be someone who has better heroes, stronger teams, and more hams than you. That just gives you something to strive for in the game. In all, it’s a great long-term game with a great community. If you want instant gratification in a game, play Mario Kart.
Started out fun but now too slow
by Prinimi on 2018/05/05 17:36
I’ve been playing this game for about six months. I really enjoyed it at first, and got fairly addicted. Then I realized it completely slows down as you advance. Leveling buildings and heroes becomes extremely time-consuming. The higher level building upgrades can take a week at a time. I bought gems a few times and also bought the VIP package to build faster. But the chances of getting five star heroes are so small that even after so many summons I only have one. And that one is essentially impossible to get to the final ascension level unless I buy some items for it. The ascension item drop rate for higher-level heroes is a very, very low. All these things are meant to slow down the game and make you spend more money, even if you’re already a paying customer! Why should it take six months to get the items necessary to ascend a five star hero? I could spend those six months playing a different game that doesn’t make me wait so long. At the end of the day, what’s the fun in sitting around and waiting? I want to play, that’s why I downloaded the game! Hope the developers look into this and improve the drop rates for five star heroes and ascension items. This would make the game more fun and make people like me less likely to quit.
Terrible design
by Glazed Ham on 2018/12/22 21:21
As others have pointed out, it’s gonna cost an INSANE amount of money to EVEN HAVE A CHANCE to climb the ranks. You can drop $100 on the largest gem bundle and you are not guaranteed to get even one top tier item/hero/etc. The alternative is to spend literally months grinding out the same boring levels to build up resources in the hopes that you can get what you need to progress and upgrade a single hero. No exaggeration, expect 3-5 pop ups every single time you open the app trying to get you to buy stuff. Porn sites have fewer pop ups. I’ve played other games with in app purchases, but this is a whole new level of money sink. To give an example, clash of clans also offers gems for purchase. However, you can get exactly what you want upgraded if you choose to spend money. Here, not only do you get fewer gems per dollar, but this is basically buying pulls on the lever of a slot machine. I don’t even know how that’s legal while I cannot play online poker because that’s “gambling.” Absolutely everything in the game is luck based, skill is not even a factor. You’ll get a lot more for your time and (if you choose) money elsewhere. Unless you have a couple thousand dollars burning a hole in your pocket, or a couple hours a day for the next year or so, avoid this one.
Beware…
by cereal.killer6 on 2018/11/13 15:25
As many others before me have mentioned, this game is all about the money regardless of how it’s disguised. It will seem manageable to start off, but quickly becomes too difficult to progress unless you spend spend spend. The ironic part about it, is that spending guarantees you absolutely nothing! In fact, the more you spend, the more frustrated you will be that you did and got hardly anything, and nothing that you will feel is worth your money. The upper levels are even more difficult and the thing about this is you will need to upgrade your hero’s to even be competitive so you will feel the urge to keep trying for better hero’s but the odds are like .001 that you will receive one. Shameful money grab. You will read that you can play for free, but believe me, you can’t beat anyone or progress for free. This is ridiculous. Don’t fall for it...... I haven’t spent nearly as much as others and it’s apparent. My hero’s are stuck waiting endlessly to be upgraded, I don’t have a 5* hero and I get beat or loose all the time to those you do. This is no puzzle game either. The boards are controlled in some manner and you will lose in the end. Don’t take my word for it, read the reviews or better yet go to the actual community forum.
A fun game with some catches.
by A competitive player. on 2018/07/29 09:07
I say it’s a fun game as I check it several times a day. I like the fact there is new Titans and quest to do every so many hours. Ranging from lower level for beginners up to hard for more advance players. The raids can be frustrating, how ever once you get a good team together and level them up it’s challenging but not impossible. Yes advancing your characters and buildings does get very time consuming once you get higher level. How ever that’s what advancing takes in a lot of games. As for the money aspect I’ve seen how you buy gems to try to get the “rare” characters only to get the same ones over and over, while it seems others have no problem getting them. My biggest issue is the Alliance wars, the pairing system should be more on a even basis. How ever it seems your always running into these huge and extremely powerful Russian Alliances that have insane fire power, are farmed to be elites or just plain have spent lots of money to get the best possible. And there are ALOT of them.
Pay LOTS to win
by The Elven Minstril on 2018/10/17 14:34
The game itself is fun at the start. There is a lot to do and it keeps you busy. The cost of the main resource, gems, is reasonable and you can subscribe for benefits. But after a few months you realize that the rate of reward is a borderline scam. I have spent hundreds of gems in an attempt to get the best heroes, or the limited time heroes, and inevitably, you end up with low ranked rewards or duplicates. I have gotten my most powerful hero 4 times. And when there is a special event, you spend extra gems to try to get the new heroes, but get the same duplicates you paid much less for before. And the rare items needed to advance your hero into the highest power levels are so rare that my characters have been capped for months. Of course, you can spend hundreds of gems on “deals” that give you a chance to win them, but in all likelihood will give you a lesser item you already have little use for. I went from believing this was the most cost effective game to realizing it is a total money grubbing scam. Of course, you don’t have to spend money. Just don’t expect to compete or get cool stuff if you don’t. My wife and I realized this after several months of subscribing. Guess we got suckered.
BEST GAME EVER
by the801legend on 2018/09/25 03:39
I previously wrote a bad review on this game, but I had to update it. This game is amazing. I truly must say this is the best, and most rewarding game I’ve ever played. All I can recommend is patience. Yes there are quirks to this game, sometimes the raids aren’t fair, sometimes the summoning isn’t fair, but trust me when I say it will all even out. They’ve really upped there customer service also. If your writing in to ask a question and not asking for your gems or money back, you will be taken care of. Again I must stress that on this game you win some and you lose some. I’ve spent alotta money on this game. And that is 100% by choice. This is NOT a pay to play game. It’s just gonna take longer to get the hero’s you want and level up etc. Give this game a chance and I promise it will reward you, and give you unbelievable satisfaction. GET THIS GAME NOW!!! There isn’t a better one in this genre, period. Thank you to the amazing staff, and for being a game that actually listens to its players. THANK YOU GIANT GAMES!!!!
Blatant money grabber
by Gammer579 on 2018/11/17 08:15
These developers are master class. It’s fun and addictive...at first. Honestly you won’t be able to put it down. It’s a well thought out rouse to get you hooked and then you’ll eventually reach a point where you can’t advance without paying. I’m not jaded and venting because I’ve spent a bunch of money and now regretting it. I’m actually impressed with how they did this. Listen folks. I have spent hundreds of dollars on this game. And I know what your thinking. But no, I’m not just venting. I don’t mind spending the money. It was entertaining and I had my fun. But really people, there’s no end to it. The money only buys you so much game play ability and then you’ll have to pay more to advance again. I was heart broken to read reviews about people who finally got a 4 star warrior. I have 5 teams all made up of 4 and 5 star warriors and I literally can’t finish the first story. I invite any developers reading this to look at my game profile and tell me And everyone else that I’m lying. If you are a person of means and can afford to spend the money, than feel free to do so. But be warned, spending that money will only get you to the next step. Rest assured, you’ll need to spend more to see what comes next.
Addicted - However, I’m with the majority
by Mrs. Hott on 2019/01/17 18:40
Love the game; however, the fact that you can only upgrade one building at a time, unless you invest cash (and then it’s only 2 at a time with no time or cost difference), the tremendous amount of resources and time required to advance anything and everything, and then the ridiculously hard challenges that you will never pass if you don’t have special items crafted for (& plenty of them) - it all makes it seem as though the game was designed to get you to spend and keep spending money. Because trust me, just investing a few dollars here and there would not help you in this one. I’ve played games where it would/did; this is not one of those games; this is spend, and continue to spend if you want to continue to advance at a decent pace. If you don’t mind playing the same boards over and over to earn the required supplies, while building up your base and heroes, which I’m fine with, then settle in. Make sure you choose a great alliance like I did, chatting with your family can help pass the time and if it’s a good one, they will give you pointers. Sorry mine is all full :) Good luck
A few problems
by rhryrc on 2018/07/01 15:48
1.) first of all and probably the biggest is not being able to destroy or delete your buildings for the fortress 1 misclick and that spot is taken forever 2.) I’m pretty sure y’all do this in purpose, but the thing is, is that the multiplayer system is pretty bad. I’ll be a level 7(which I am at the moment i think) and when other to fight other people I’ll only find people who have troops who are all super high level with the troops being at least 3 star(note most of my troops are 2 star and the highest level I have on one is 13 not even ascended, so yeah I don’t know what y’all are doing, but fix it, and the next thing isn’t really a problem a fact, this game is a bit to much pay to win(by a bit I mean a lot) it you had enough money you could have a max level fortress with max level hero’s and troops within a hour or day, but what’s good is that this isn’t a game that sets a limiter of how far you can go without money(I don’t spend money) but this is a four star on a gameplay standpoint
Sure, I’ll leave a review.
by Three Octaves on 2018/08/26 16:08
This Atlantis thing you’ve got going on, brilliant. You made sure that you can get 97 of those coins so that you’d have to beat at least 1 level on hard to get a character. Cool. Except for the moth on the last wave of the FIRST level. He’s OP. And unless I’ve already spent a bunch of money getting other characters there’s no way on Earth I’m beating this fella. I spent 175 gems to keep fighting, thinking that maybe it would be enough. It wasn’t. He can take out an entire crew. Just 5 turns. Unfortunately he had about 25% health. Which meant he could wreck twice in a row and still have 20% health. It’s a nice mix between “very clever way of getting people to spend money” and “good lord I have to delete this because I’m not adding it to my list of bills”. Thanks for the short ride. My dreams of having at least one character that wasn’t run-of-the-mill have been shattered and I’d rather just play sudoku now anyways. Sustainability is key. But by all means, swipe as much money from the people who can afford it and just start a new game once this one’s done. - Average person
Played since the beginning.
by Preakness1765 on 2018/10/28 03:44
I have been playing since the second month of this games release. I can say that it is fun, but absolutely ridiculous how low your chances are at getting five star heroes and even worse your chances are to get the items needed to ascend your heroes to the final levels. This game becomes boring, waiting day after day, month after month, for one good item to appear. You can pay $100 for a 30 hero summons and you get only 3* heroes, which you can get for free at the higher level training camps. These developers know how to milk their players. I constantly have full iron and food, and nothing to spend it on. What’s the point in having it if I never get the items I need to use my iron and food? Seriously, it’s addictive at first but after almost two solid years of playing, I’ve finally decided to write my review. I’m seasoned, so I know how this game works in and out. I will still play, but I think you should know what you’re in for. Don’t expect anything to happen fast, don’t expect anything for free, and be resourceful with your spending.
Read the reviews but ignore the stars.
by pmn759 on 2019/01/08 05:53
This is not a good game for someone with a game addiction like myself. lol I’ve been playing Castle Siege & like building type games. If you’re a f2p (free to play) player, understand it will take time to progress as you juggle spending resources (esp hams) on leveling up, training, & making battle items. The puzzle part has become more fun after I realized you don’t have to rush to make your moves (except for the Titans). The monsters will wait for you to take your turn (or maybe even two) before they strike. Also, ghosting helps (i.e., shooting into a blank area) because you can build up your mana to use your hero’s special power. So, there is some strategy involved. Alliance membership allows you to chat we teammates which is nice. I haven’t been in an alliance v alliance war yet so can’t comment about how the AI selects your opponents. We’ll see how long I keep playing. If I could only train myself to play a few minutes every couple of hours I could keep up with my real work. lol.
Great game
by Glmpoo on 2018/10/13 01:34
In response to mycastle4acloud, this person doesn't get it. In order for game developers to make money and continue to make great games they cannot just let people have everything for free. This game is FREE to download and play. Do you not get all the best hero's? Do you actually have to be patient and work at something to get what you want? Might you have to shell out a little dough if you want better? Yes. This is how these guys/gals make money in this industry. And hey do games have some bugs, absolutely. Boo hoo that the matchmaking isn't exactly how you want it. Aside from all that, this game is wonderful. I was being bugged by the ads for this game for quite some time. Finally said screw it im gonna check this game out. As far as puzzle rpgs go this is by far the best one out there. You can easily play this game and not spend any money. I like the challenge events, titan battles, wars, and story. All of it. Very excited to see whats in store for the future of this game.
This game is rigged
by okdokiegamer on 2018/12/04 02:26
So i’ve been paying attention for a long time now, this game encourage people to buy and spend more money unnecessary, they will match you with weak people but then “randomly” place your element jewels that other team is strong against, even if you reroll and pick the weaker ones, you still lose since you will end up building mana for weaker team to wipe out one by one. The stronger elements barely appear. Most people are competitive, and think their teams are weak but the truth is the game makes you lose against AI so you can buy more. Have you ever seen that randomly you can win much stronger team by oooh combo with matching jewels everywhere, and then boom lost 50 points where you find no jewels to match at all and keep building their mana the entire match. This is only happens in raid and not war. There is a time you can see damage increase or decrease, even your mana gain becomes faster if the game wants you to win, if not the other team just again “randomly” target your main character (when points win are around 40ish). This is not random, this is pre coded to make you become competitive and spend more. This has been my observation and experiences so far.
It is what is but can be fun at s risk
by C from the bay area on 2019/02/09 10:17
Let’s face it, the reviews you see about people complaining about all the money spent are 100% true!!! You can play this game without spending tons of money but it might get tedious and boring. You can also drop loads of cash and still hit s brick wall because you don’t have rare items to level your heroes with. The money complaint is ridiculous because most of the interactive games cost money to play now. Yes, we’re all fools for paying so much to play the same games o we and over. I’ve been playing this game for almost 300 days now and I like it. It isn’t as stressful as games like GOW where it’s all about spending. As I stated earlier, you can play with small amounts spent or none at all but it might bore you. Join an alliance and play twice a day and you will level up but not as fast as some who spend. The big complaint is that you can’t trade items in your alliance to other, you can’t trade or buy needed items (which I understand the buying part because that can make the game turn into a pay to play), but at least you should be able to trade the awarded items for ones you need. I have 20 worm capes and need 1 hidden dagger. I’ll give up 10 of those capes for this item but I can’t. That is fair so players can grow. You also can’t do some of the basic chat groups or copy and paste as in other games. Overall, fun game that takes time but it won’t cost you an arm and a leg unless you want to spend it.
PvP system is frustrating
by JH116 on 2017/11/28 00:33
The game overall is decent. I like the building and collecting resources and progressing through the campaign world. The system is set up so you have team power that should be a gauge to how easy or hard fighting another player will be or certain quests should be in relation to your team. This is where it falls short and is terrible and frustrating. In PvP you can see what your opponents team power is in relation to yours and combat should be based on that. It isn’t!!. The developers decided to make team power irrelevant. When combating another player who should be relatively easy because their power is significantly lower then yours still somehow destroys you. Even the team you have for some reason doesn’t increase in their special abilities like I. The campaign by your opponent seems to always get their special abilities. It’s incredibly frustrating and it’s like the developers just made it this way to make you want to buy things in game to get stronger part members. So even if you have a higher team power you can still be totally annihilated by a much weaker player. It’s ridiculous. I deleted the game!! Don’t bother with this game.
Addictive game
by Timothy77 on 2018/02/03 05:11
I’ve been playing E&P for a couple months now and let me say it is extremely addictive. It’s super fun and everyone that I’ve run into has been nice and helpful. With that being said I have a few problems with the game. I feel like it is to hard to grow past a certain point. I currently have a team of 3 3 star heroes and 2 4 star heroes. I have my training ground going pretty consistently and I’m only getting more 3 star heroes. I have saved up 300 gems twice to do the elemental summons which both resulted in 3 star heroes. I feel like if I spend the time and effort to save up 300 gems I should be guaranteed a 4 star hero with a chance at a 5 star hero. Keep in mind even with doing all the daily chests and free video I usually get around 10 gems a day so it takes forever to save up just to waste it on a 5ish % chance at a 4* hero. Another issue I have is the titans not taking up the whole area. Why can’t the titans be able to take damage from all lanes? It’s a lot of wasted damage. P.s. Please optimize the game for iPhone X.
The best
by iam4au2 on 2018/01/31 23:08
I adore this game. It is so addictive I keep it open almost constantly. Of course I think the alliance I belong to is the best. Shout out United. You will not be disappointed. It's free to play and it's not pushy about shoving ads in your face about gems constantly. Also there aren't ads for anyone else either. You can choose to watch one ad a day for some free items if you choose. Developers actually listen to the players about new updates. I can't say enough positive things about the game. I've read the negative review and it's my opinion they don't understand the gameplay and haven't taken the time to research or read the guide. PvP is not just about players power you also have to take into consideration abilities and ascention of other players. The game has an easy searchable forum if you are ever confused about gameplay as well as a you tube channel. It's super easy but also has depth if you want to dig in.
Empires & Puzzles
by Baulder001 on 2018/08/31 19:51
Do not get this game. It’s horribly unbalanced and sneakily deceptive in its game play. At first, it starts out fun and enjoyable. Then you hit a wall. A wall placed there so you have to try and spend money to get further along. The problem? The gambling system is terribly awful and works against you. The chance to get decent heroes is abysmally small and in order to upgrade them to the fullest, you’ll need to wait for drops from Titan creatures. You can only engage these creatures if you are in a guild. On top of that, you’ll need to wait and pray that your guild-mates attack it/ kill it. The item drops are still subjective to a crap gambling system. So you’ll not lucky get the items needed to upgrade your deck. Also, the Raid system is horrid. This is the process in which you attack other players decks. The Raid teams don’t follow the same mechanics as your team does. The AI attacks you at will after so many turns. Attacking them builds their mana bar and they will obliterate you with special attacks. You only build mana by completing combos. Which is the only way to win, so facing a team much weaker than yours can still mean defeat if your rolling bad luck.
Great but.....
by thebeardedbro on 2018/09/24 16:51
I love the game I hope the creators see this review because they did a fantastic job on this game and I have the same complaints as the other reviews. The raids are very challenging once you get so far and you have to spend a bunch of your food just to get to fight a level that’s a little lower you know you might have a chance at. If they were a way that they could bring down the size gap in raids and I mean if you go over 3000 hp doesn’t meant you should go against ppl that are 3800. Same goes for the other way. 2400 shouldn’t be playing a 3000 hp player. Not fair. Oh and one more thing THE LOOT YOU RECEIVE from titans and wars and such lately has been very limited on anything decent and the scene a hero you need certain things and those are just impossible to get and I have spent over 60-70 bucks on this game and don’t have anything to really show for it. The game though is right as rain just needs some fine tuning on things is all.
Update locked me out!
by Marlene.J on 2018/09/24 21:32
UPDATE: It’s happening AGAIN! Locked out, no update available, exact same thing that happened before. Help! I went to play as I have been for a long time, and got a little box that said “UPDATE available” with a button to Update. I clicked the update button which took me to the App Store Page. The ONLY option there was to “Open”. There was no update option. I hit Open and it took me back to the game where the same Update available box was. I cannot get into the game at all now because there is no way to close that box! I have effectively been locked out! Gee, thanks! Bad enough that it takes days to upgrade anything, it teases you to spend a fortune In gems at a (slim-to-nothing) chance at 5-Star elements, when you only get an otherwise easily obtained 3-Star one. You have to play the same lower levels over & over because you can’t get strong enough elements needed to advance or fight. And because of that you can’t get the rarer items needed to ascend 4-star elements from level 3 to 4. I love this game, but it’s fast becoming old with no way to advance. AND NIOW NO WAY TO PLAY AT ALL SINCE I’M LOCKED OUT!
It’s OK
by ScottE1987 on 2018/04/18 15:19
This game can be pretty addicting. It’s a build your own empire game that effects your production. You can also join guilds to fight super strong titans. So the more in your guild the better. You also need a guild to go to wars with other guilds. You might find yourself playing and getting really good items at the beginning of the game but, it slows down and the opportunity to ascend heros to higher stars are made very difficult. I suspect that the people who made the game boards those items for themselves. I paid for some gems but, it’s such a waste of money for crappy rewards. The other big downside is the PvP it is so off on some weeks that you maybe getting really good and fighting a range of players and winning to getting beat against players with 200+ power totals less than your own. It’s like the developers flips a switch every so often and it doesn’t seem like there is a good constant algorithm that is fair. If I could rate this game a little less then I would.
Fun game but
by AhzieMina on 2018/06/03 02:39
I enjoyed this game in the beginning but it is very hard to progress without spending money. New players will be raided by other players who much more advanced than they are. Which means that your hard won trophies and resources will be taken from you. You can’t win against these bullies because they are too strong. The developer needs to address this by limiting the stronger players to their own levels. Make it a fair game for newcomers. If you don’t have the money to buy advanced warriors you’re screwed. I’ve been playing for a few months and can’t get beyond bronze level. I was raided 12 times in less than 2 hours by players way stronger than me. Very unfair. Most of my trophies are gone. I don’t raid other players who are way weaker than me. I will not recommend this game for people who can’t afford to buy their way through it. I will be deleting this game because of the unfairness to new players.
Good but a few things need changes
by Ninigirl24 on 2018/07/16 18:36
This game is really fun and has a good storyline as well, My family, Friends and I are all in an alliance. However a few changes and additional features to this game would make it better Things to change: The price for Epic summons are pretty high and I’m running out of options for getting gems. Other players are very OP just because they throw money on this game. This is no fair to people who have played much longer but still can’t beat Money spenders. Yes I know TC20 is a way to get 3* 4* and 5* but the chances for getting anything other than a 3* is a about 15%, which In My opinion (and many others) is not fair. Dew to the time and resources it takes to get to TC20 and the the time and resources it takes to train JUST ONE hero is very extreme, especially for the poor results coming from it. Things to add I feel it would be very convenient for there to be a way to change the placement of the buildings that you built on your Base. This would be a nice way to organize all your buildings and make it less cluttered on the screen. Having a more organized Base would make it easier to find the buildings your looking for. It would also make your base look better and easier to collect finished products. Thanks for reading! I would be very glad to see any of these changes made in the game as it would make for a better experience for all who agree.
Stupidly expensive (and buggy) free game
by ltsk on 2017/09/26 15:57
This game would be addictive and heckafun if it weren't so ridiculously expensive to play. It costs a heck of a lot to pay for the basic currency that lets one do nearly everything. If you don't mind playing very briefly and letting it sit idle for a couple of days before you play again, you might be all right, but the game is just too much fun for me to do that without being very frustrated. If they'd only charge less, I'd be able to give this game a couple more stars, but the in-game prices are verging on highway robbery. UPDATE (now a 1-star review): They did something that now has rendered the game so buggy, it crashes both the app and the device you're using mid-fight. Points are lost (both for yourself and for your alliance if the crash happens during a team fight), turns to play are lost, experience is lost, loot is lost, PvP raids are lost. Doesn't look like they care enough about it to fix it, though. They'll just take your money and leave you with a halfway unplayable game. Don't bother downloading this game.
2 stars and u better read....
by Hissogon on 2019/01/25 17:08
I have spent 35€ only 48 hours after having downloaded the game. But I soon faced connection problems while in campaign mode and lose energy ( which is the most important thing in the game for paying) . So after 3 times it happened, and not only to me but to a lot of players I wrote to the support who answers me : “It is not out fault but it come from your connection network”. The fact is that every other devices connected to internet in my whole home were working great during this lagging time...and added to this -> a lot of players faced the same problem , it looks like the all planet has a modem 56k while Empire and puzzles is the most reliable application on earth. I only asked a virtual refund (energy drink) to compensate those losses and the wrote me they “can’t give anything “ as it looks like virtual items are more valuable than real items : money I spent. Yes the game is good and great BUT DONT SPEND A PENNY just play the game free you will not face delusion.
Be Selective
by Spatzus on 2018/09/24 14:19
I’ve read some of the reviews with some amazement. Yes, raids are a pain and lean toward unfair. Then DON’T PLAY THEM. They have nothing to do with you progressing, so if you don’t like them, don’t play. The reason you can’t simply buy everything you need is that then the game really does become only for those who have the money to spend. If you don’t like the odds on buying heroes, DON’T BUY THEM. I just wait for the gem sales, which are really cheap, and then cash them in for multiple tries. Most will be lower level filler, but you do get higher ranked heroes and, when you do, it’s exciting. The guilds are definitely a high point and actually worth joining. I’ve been playing a long time and have progressed pretty far without spending more than about $30-40 and that’s over the whole time I’ve been on.
This game
by 123Tiffany321 on 2018/10/27 23:53
Really ya kick us out the war and don’t give anybody no rewards what so ever for what they done in the war. Another reason why I’m giving a one star is that I spend my gems and I haven’t gotten nothing good but one time as in getting a higher player card until I used my season two coins. It’s like it’s impossible to get anything good and the levels are just to way hard to beat most of the time. It takes me way too many tries to go to the next level and even move up to upgrade. Also the heros I get to upgrade my own hero are always a one star hero. This game can be a lot better but the stuff that are going on are ridiculous. And why must I wait for a building to build. Most of them especially if they are in the high numbers take days to finish. Why can I build more than one building at the same time it would make it better. This game is fun but all these wait times and not getting what you deserve makes it slow and makes you not want to play. Keep the fun and not make it forever to win something good.
No different than gambling, just much worse odds than a casino.
by Rayraythe8th on 2018/02/03 22:25
This app pulls you in by the odds. The odds of getting that big hero for starters, even though you can blow twenty bucks and get nothing you couldn’t have gotten from the free daily summons. It makes you feel good to hit the jackpot with that one big 5 Star hero, but the odds of that happening are so slim that you may become infuriated with this expensive slot machine and quit long before that happens. Unless you throw a lot of money at the game, which is what the developers want of course. It’s a good puzzle game sure, but the rng aspect of it is all about making a buck. It’s like gambling, sure it feels good when you win but I’ve never played a slot machine with odds as bad as this game. Personally I’d avoid it, I know some people that are addicted and have blown hundreds on it only to get diddly squat in return. I’m pretty much done myself, all work and no reward is not a good way to repay your customers for playing your game.
PvP System is Broken
by MyOhMyCrystal on 2017/11/09 10:07
This game is a lot of fun with the quest line, Titans to fight, buildings to upgrade, etc, but the one thing that has me extremely frustrated with this game and playing less? The PvP system. Like many others here, I think the system is completely rigged and the basis on which it’s evaluating you and your opponent is worthless so in turn, you can spend a 1000 Food to reset the opponent to one more favorable but even when you get an opponent who should be an easy fight for you, turns about being a slaughterhouse for no obvious reason. I’ll defeat an opponent that is marked as hard for me and then in the next turn lose all all of that progress and more on an opponent who should be easy. It’s one of those things where you have to think the developers are setting up players to be frustrated so they purchase items to get stronger. But don’t do it! It’s a trap. It doesn’t matter how strong or weak you are in the current PvP system - it’s going to ensure you’re not progressing as you should in player rankings.
Great game. Too expensive
by HonestlyReally223 on 2019/01/27 18:18
Love this game. Beautiful combination of my favorite types of games. BUT.. they try way too hard to get WAY too much money from you. By level(province) 10-12 it starts to become so difficult you either give in and spend stupid amounts of money or you just chug along slowly and hope that maybe next month you’ll have the power and resources available to make it to the next level. Example: typical reward for watching and ad or completing a task is like 3 gems. To buy 1 MAYBE(and it’s only a maybe) good character costs 300, not to mention the time it costs to try to level the character up enough to have value. Could be a five star game but they really need to make this a more realistic endeavor for us poor folks. DEVELOPERS: Let me watch more ads instead of 1 every 15 hours. Let me help you make more passive income. Make prices reasonable. You’re not as good as an Xbox or PlayStation game. Stop trying to charge me more than they do
Money sucking game
by CanRut on 2019/01/25 04:14
If you’re looking for a puzzle game to enjoy and relax, then this is not for you. This is not even a puzzle game!!! Once you get to lvl 5, it’s almost impossible to progress without spending money because: - It takes forever to get the energy to refill unless you spend money to get gems. - The energy cap is very little and limited so you can the whole day waiting just to play for 10 minutes. - Once you upgrade building, it takes up to a few hours or even a few days (seriously) to finish unless you spend gems. - The rng when you raid other players is crap. Most of the time you will lose to a lower lvl player with lower power just because the spawn rate is horrible and you only have 6 raid energies which takes up to a day to refill unless you spend gems. - There is no chance for you to pull a 5* hero and very low chance to pull a 4* one. If you do daily missions and stuff like that to collect gems, it will take you at least 5 days to get 1 summon and most of the times it’s a 3* hero. - There is also no way to upgrade your troops if you don’t want to spend money. - You will be frustrated and upset because you made no progress in the game and keep losing to other players. Another thing is that you can’t revenge if they are online or use a different app version (makes no sense to me). There are more cons about this game but this should be enough. JUST DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME FOR SOMETHING NOT EVEN WORTH THE TRY.
Needs balance
by NRF7782 on 2018/02/22 07:04
The game is good and has a lot of potential, but there are a few things that need to be balanced. The raid system is the big one. Similarly higher level quests and story levels are ridiculous. Does team power not play into the game at all?your team can be hundreds of points higher than opponents but still get run through. #1 Revamp the raid system. Opponents heroes special skills should not charge based on how many times they get hit. Instead It should be set to fill by how many individual hits they deliver just like the players heroes. That would eliminate getting hit by four or five special hits before the player can deliver one. This should also apply to higher level quest/story line bosses. #2 Training times for a chance at a higher lever hero are excessive especially to end up with multiple low level heroes. 48+ hours of waiting for a two or three star hero is insane. At least increase the odds of getting a a 4 or 5 star hero.
Extremely disappointing
by trick not a treat on 2018/12/15 03:39
You can play this game putting money into it for less than one level. Near the end of one level and lots of money later you will not be able to get enough legendary figures to make it past the first level. Nor will you be able to obtain the needed materials to ascend to the third level on legendary figures. Even when you pit money into the game you never know what your going to get and 90 % of the time your disappointed getting the same figures over and over getting you nowhere. The challenges are ridiculously hard where having all legendary figures ascended to top of level three not able to go further without winning more battles to get the ascension tools and you still can’t win the battles to advance so you are effectively stuck. I am disappointed because this was my relaxing time when I first started playing but now will delete game for a game I can continue advancing and enjoying.
It’s fun, but could be better!
by Dp_Bunny on 2018/12/01 07:38
I have played this game for a year now, and for the most part I have enjoyed it. However, with each update to not only fix “bugs”, but also changes some game plays. Raids, and especially Alliance Wars have now became off balance with the last few updates and so called fixes to the game, constantly you are, as a player versus player, or young Alliances are not equally paired off with those you are up against of “supposedly equal” team points. If that’s not enough, you do have to put forth some real money into the game to get anywhere, how much depends on how much you are willing to pay. You can go the long slow way, but keep in mind, it may become frustrating if you expect build a strong team in a short time. You can find some “tips and tricks” on the game, and there is a forum that offers support to learn the game better. Good Luck.
Excellent!
by Dylanc1986 on 2018/08/15 20:26
I have been playing over a year and have a 3200+ team. I've never spent a cent and enjoy the game thoroughly. For those who spend hundreds or thousands and then blame the developers? Stop! Be patient and work your way up. There are a lot of techniques that work in this game but you have to use your brain, not just your wallet. It's fine to make purchases, and in fact thank you for supporting the game, but don't go crazy. You can have fun without paying, just don't expect to be amazing in your first month. I love the mix of raids, titans, wars, story map and quests. There's a lot to do. Every type of battle has tricks you can learn to succeed. A friendly active alliance will help you grow. My few complaints are that I truly believe that in raids, E&P manipulates the frequency of colors in the starting matching field. This can make it tougher to win. They say they do not manipulate colors, but long experience and counting color frequencies has me thinking otherwise. Second, there were points as I was growing when I hit plateaus where I couldn't really improve and I almost quit twice, with months away from the game. Other than that, great game and my absolute favorite mobile app. Keep it up!
Could have been a 5 star
by Bus3je on 2018/11/02 01:17
I really wanted to give it a 5, but there are some things this game lacks. I would love if in raids they paired you close to opponents that are actually close to your level instead of opponents that are much higher than you. I also think it’s terrible that when you finally get enough gems to summon in an Elemental Summon you get the same rare you already have every time. How many of the same rare characters do I need? Even if they were Epic or Legendary I’d still be tired of getting the same characters. The game also then makes it nearly impossible to get past a certain level within Province 1 unless you have Legendary characters or a ton of battle items that you can’t make because they don’t give the right resources. It seems like a very sad endless loop of impossibles so you’re stuck playing the same stages over and over again.
Fun but really a waste of time
by deschenm on 2018/11/01 20:58
I found this game fun, but soon realized it's pointless to waste your time on it. Once you get to a certain level with your characters it becomes very evident that this game is stacked against you worse than any casino. In order to beat certain levels to find the "loot" you need to upgrade your characters your character need to be rather strong. Unfortunately, in order to pass to these levels you already need the loot to upgraded characters so they are strong enough, which they are more than willing to sell you at a nice inflated price of course. You only really find this out once the game is well underway and you have invested enough time to get nicely frustrated. Also, other loot that aids you in the game appears to be harder and harder to find with each update, not cool! I'm done with this game. I don't mind spending some cash for a good game but the prices they are demanding are way to high.
It’s a fun challenge!
by CharlotteChe on 2018/10/31 11:36
It takes work to get going, it’s not too hard and I don’t believe you ‘have’ to spend money. It can get a little grind intensive to start with but it’s fun. It takes some time and effort to understand the best strategies. You can’t just expect to play without some learning. The people giving one star because they think they need to spend money need to understand you can’t just jump into PVP. You need to spend time leveling up your and bettering your team. However, that being said, the PVP can be pretty unfair. I’m not sure how it determines who fights who, but it’s not always evenly matched. Maybe once a higher lever is achieved it will even out? You also can’t play for hours because your energies need to recharge, but that’s a good thing on such an addictive game. Over all it’s a good game worth the challenge.
Game is ok
by Anon 7777777 on 2018/05/03 18:46
Alliance wars are stupid at best. As an alliance you should be able to have the option to be in a war or not as the current way to war is weak and an alliance can be outmatched easily with no hope of a win. Secondly, and more importantly is that if you spend actual money on this game to purchase gems and then use those gems to summon. It is ludicrous that you can’t purchase what you want. Only a chance of getting what you pay for. So if you want an epic, or legendary then you you have to summon with only a chance to get one and if not spend more again, for only a chance. That’s like going to he store needing sugar and handing the store some cash and hoping that you might get it. So pay real money for something you don’t know if you will or won’t. Seems like a rip off to me. If I want an epic then I should be able to use MY money to get one. The game overall really needs improvements If it is to become a next level game. The idea is good but as always, the developers only want your cash. And they don’t hide that in the way they set it up. If they put as much thought into making it a great game as they do on how to get in your wallet, they wouldn’t have to try so hard to get your money as you wouldn’t mind spending a little. But I certainly won’t hold my breath for that. You can play free, but you will get bored long before you really get anywhere.
Cool concept, PVP is utter trash.
by Jacksonion1324 on 2018/12/22 04:37
The game is alright overall. There is plenty to do, but what absolutely ruins this game is the fact that the PVP “raids” are almost impossible to win early game. (They are also required to advance in the story). When matching you against an opponent, 9 times out of 10, it will place you against someone who is almost impossible to beat with your current team. It almost makes it necessary to spend money on the game to upgrade your heroes to stand a chance, although I’m not sure that this would work because it would likely just face you against even harder opponents. Either you spend money, or you just stop playing the game and let your resources build up slowly upgrading your heroes and base, essentially wasting time doing nothing, and wasting storage space on your phone. It is ridiculously unbalanced once you get to level 4 or 5. The devs need to fix this game breaking flaw because it is almost impossible to enjoy a game where you can’t win.

Awesome game
Boring and Fake
by Masked Lord on 2019/02/16 02:00
Super fun for a very small frame of time, but gets extremely boring later. They games summoning system is obviously rigged.
Crap
by Clash Royale Knockoff on 2019/02/16 00:57
This is stupid.Its like Puzzle and Dragons Without Anime! And They Poorly Ripped it off! It’s way worse because it like bejeweled and Puzzles And Dragons its original. Horrible
Fun

Very fun and addictive game, you have to work a bit to get good items but it’s worth it, I play this game very frequently
Great game

Awesome game very addicting
Mostly good
by KTkitara on 2019/02/15 17:17
Really great game, aside from the hero acquisition. I can only give it 4 stars because that is all it will give me. I’ve spent too much money trying to get 5 star heroes and can’t upgrade my team enough to make it worth spending more. I hope they fix this - it has been a really fun few months.
Greedy game
by Timilme on 2019/02/15 17:02
You can’t progress in this game unless you spend a ton of money...
Fun
by Comish069 on 2019/02/15 16:31
Fun game the only thing about the game I would change is the time it takes to gain supplies and the raid role so far as I just started to play can’t find anyone my lvl but one
No Advancement
by Spencino on 2019/02/15 12:07
The game is very fun and has good guild group work. Unfortunately the developers are cheapskates so don’t expect to advance without spending a lot of money.
Awesome

Game is fun, but don’t spend money
by bookwyrm_86 on 2019/02/15 01:56
The game is fun to play and I enjoy the mechanics. That said, unless you are willing to pay massively, don’t bother with in game purchases. I buy gems to do 10x draws on events and rarely if ever get anything besides duplicate three star heroes. I’ve been playing for a year and have only one or two 3 star event heroes and two of the heroes of the month. Don’t waste the money, just chug along at an impossibly slow pace and enjoy the chat.

Beware when summoning
by Trydonart on 2019/02/14 22:49
I was so mad when I saved up 300 gems to get a hero that I wanted. When I selected it and it said are you sure you want to proceed with this and I said yes it summoned a totally different hero??? I do enjoy playing the game but it took be over a month to save up and then it summoned a lesser hero.... so mad
fun game

It’s an ok game.
by JessieThomas08 on 2019/02/14 13:57
It takes a really long time to build up your character roster. Do your self a favor don’t waist your money trying to get new characters by purchasing gems. Most of the time your going to get junk characters anyway. Just slowly build them up overtime for free.
Problem with recent update
by 1472053 on 2019/02/14 12:21
Every time I get to the queen and diamond guy at the end of the rare level 5 of the wonderland event I get disconnected. When I get reconnected I don’t get my word energy refunded. I have to go through the process again just to be disconnected every time. Please fix.
Pay-to-win
by AL, M.D. on 2019/02/13 21:21
Unfortunately - unless you pay, the game (around level 8-9) becomes impossibly rigged for you to lose ... and I categorize it as unfortunate, bc it *was* a fun game until that point ...
little repetitive, but fun game altogether
by lukain2reboot on 2019/02/13 20:43
Had a good time trying to teach my nephews this game. Even let them make a few in app purchases. They are into it and it keeps them from running around the house.
Great Game!
by nahhh0 on 2019/02/13 20:30
the game is great but i think that you should add trading or gifting. because my friend really wants to give me stuff but she can’t. so i would really appreciate if you added this feature!
Customer service
by 1080ego on 2019/02/13 07:16
Lost my full account and got no help getting it back. I’ve never been more disappointed in a developer.
Fun great game

A great game once I got the hang of it great story too.
Fun but frustrating
by Kumbaka on 2019/02/13 05:29
Games a lot of fun but once you hit the 5 th map it gets really difficult to advance without spending money and the raids are incredibly mismatched. You will be placed in maybe two winnable battles out of every eight.
Trash
by OvOBrian on 2019/02/13 04:51
The app is really trash.
Not a game to expect to advance and having skill doesn’t matter having money to blow is key
by danny.v1986 on 2019/02/13 04:27
This game is addictive and can be fun but I will admit it rigged
Hooked?

by Dkavatar97 on 2019/02/13 01:28
I really enjoy this game. My Android phone ended up breaking and I couldn’t get my profile onto my iPhone, but I enjoyed playing the game too much so here I am starting all over again.
Leveling up
by B0ss1ady11 on 2019/02/12 22:15
It says I have to level up the castle but I can’t cause my iron needs to be leveled up can’t level that up cause the castle needs to be leveled up. How do I do that
Good fun

Only been playing for a few weeks, but really enjoy this game!
Matchmaking needs to be fixed or I’ll stop playing
by Annoyed1633 on 2019/02/12 05:41
I’ve pretty much never left a review for an app but I really like this game so here I am. I’ve never played a game with a worse matchmaking system. It’s a waste of time and sanity, not to mention resources in the game that are hard to come by. Just let me play against players at my skill level without having to waste 600,000 in food JFC. And the penalty for losing to a team much better than you is so frustrating on top of it all, it’s enough to ruin what is a fun game
Review
by jay20000000000 on 2019/02/12 04:22
Like the game. Wish though the letter received on version 20 being out was out. I was confused to see no update. Only wish was that getting ascension items was made slightly better without giving the already powerful a over advantage.

Puzzle me with Empires
by Crys4u on 2019/02/12 00:45
I love this game it is so addictive. I can’t wait for my energy to refill so I can keep on playing. Doesn’t require money, but it does help when you need gemstones at times. Always building up my teams and trying to get to the next levels with the puzzles and stories. You are constantly working on building up your Empire! The latest update though did give you the ability to level up maxed players, but I’m am finding it quite difficult to get the skill to level 8. One suggestion would be to have a smaller gemstone purchase of a 100. That way if you need gems to continue playing or to buy an energy refill you could do so!!!
Great game but...
by PMW716 on 2019/02/11 20:39
I love the game. I do, really. But there’s a few things that set me off. •the story mode is way too difficult to level up your characters and keep going •TOO MANY UPDATES it’s like every week I feel like I’m updating this game, it’s so inconvenient. Just make a big update instead of 10 little ones.
Money Grabber X 10
by Yager Bom on 2019/02/11 19:00
I get pay to play but this game is unreasonable. Even using in-game money (diamonds) is a rip-off. Requiring WAY too many diamonds to get a slim chance of acquiring mandatory ascension items is just rude. Also, since it takes unreasonably long to build, requiring addition money to temporarily add a 2nd builder is just more rude. I’m guessing you’d make more money by cutting these costs in half, as maybe more would actually find it worth it to pay to play this game. Just a thought. So, while gameplay is fun, if you don’t empty your pockets routinely, don’t expect to get too far.
Stats
by 2pipesloaded on 2019/02/11 17:15
The stats on your team is totally bogus I have been defeated on raids by players with over 400 less team power and it really makes me mad so I buy more diamonds so I can go back and defeat the lower ranked team and that’s one way they get you to spend money so really no way to tell if you have a chance to win and certainly not buy the bogus stats.

My favorite...until I raid
by blrrhaha on 2019/02/11 14:00
This is my go to mobile game everything is amazing EXCEPT THE RAID SYSTEM! No reason I should spend all my food looking for one decent match. Other than not matching raids with team power this game is 10/10
it's perfect minus...
by Darky Persian on 2019/02/11 12:02
As an experienced writer, i'm saying the only downside of this game is the storytelling and characterizing aspects... i love this game and for a year it's the only game i've spent so much time, money and energy on, but if they could work on those two aspects i said above... then i could say without any doubt the game is perfect!
Fun but expensive
by Redak239 on 2019/02/11 06:34
Fun game, good ideas. Payout for money put into the game pretty lacking compared to other games. Be prepared to spend if you want to get any good hero’s. If you get in a good group that teaches you will find this game entertaining.
Garbage
by Klutw on 2019/02/11 06:00
Your ranking means nothing, it’s seriously about nothing but money with this game. If you have money to spend (a lot) it’s a great game. By the way, when you do “raids” the team power means squat.
Good app, but it has problems
by MangoMarieMeow on 2019/02/11 05:44
This app is fun and really great, but it can be annoying. When the app tries to get people to buy stuff for them, they make very helpful things hard and annoying to get. It takes more than 84 hours to upgrade to upgrade the stronghold, which is super annoying, and also, they only give you one builder, so now I have a ton of food and I can’t upgrade anything else until it’s over. But for the good qualities of this app, it’s very fun to collect heroes , play against players, etc... but if I had to recommend one thing for this app, than I would say that they should open a trading booth. Like where you can trade hero cards for others, which would be very helpful in the app. Overall, it’s very nice to play and a good game to play when bored.
Do not download
by Newrevo on 2019/02/11 04:38
I have put so much time, effort and money into this app just to be constantly set back on progress. In order to get far in this game quickly you have to buy gems and more to just get anywhere. You don’t have to but to get involved with the game it is a very...very slow progress otherwise. This game is addictive and to be free... I have sunk countless hours and way over my spending limit on a stupid mobile game that makes you want to win. I have been looking at the way you can get into raids... for example and play. Sometimes you advance, but other times the game pushes you back purposely to make you wanna pay to advance. I won’t recommend this game to anyone. It is a money pit.

by OhbesPuck on 2019/02/11 03:08
Yeah overall pretty fun. Generally well designed. Keeps you thinking both building base and battling. However, ability to build w/out spending $$ is tough.
Game is good but...
by Mikeyten246 on 2019/02/10 23:41
This game is really fun but I wish there was a trading system within the alliance that you are in.
Fun!
by JollyTrolli on 2019/02/10 01:46
For now it’s fun, have a feeling it’s going to turn into a pay to win game very fast!
Dishonest
by Macanudog on 2019/02/09 23:47
Everything about this game is great;except raiding.When you raid it doesn’t matter what you do,the game just makes you lose.Its not random,you don’t get the colors you need,the other guy won’t die,even when he has no life bar,and you die easily.I won’t spend a penny on this game until its fair. Hey developers, I’ll never spend a cent on this dishonest,cheap game. I’ll play it but I’ll never pay! This game stinks. Whoever is behind it stinks too. I was gonna buy the Christmas special but then I lost twenty times in a row so forget it.Twenty times!That can’t be equal odds. Never spend a penny on his game, starve the developers until they give an honest game.It doesn’t matter what you do,you’ll lose your raid unless you pay.

good game really fun
It is what is but can be fun at s risk
by C from the bay area on 2019/02/09 10:17
Let’s face it, the reviews you see about people complaining about all the money spent are 100% true!!! You can play this game without spending tons of money but it might get tedious and boring. You can also drop loads of cash and still hit s brick wall because you don’t have rare items to level your heroes with. The money complaint is ridiculous because most of the interactive games cost money to play now. Yes, we’re all fools for paying so much to play the same games o we and over. I’ve been playing this game for almost 300 days now and I like it. It isn’t as stressful as games like GOW where it’s all about spending. As I stated earlier, you can play with small amounts spent or none at all but it might bore you. Join an alliance and play twice a day and you will level up but not as fast as some who spend. The big complaint is that you can’t trade items in your alliance to other, you can’t trade or buy needed items (which I understand the buying part because that can make the game turn into a pay to play), but at least you should be able to trade the awarded items for ones you need. I have 20 worm capes and need 1 hidden dagger. I’ll give up 10 of those capes for this item but I can’t. That is fair so players can grow. You also can’t do some of the basic chat groups or copy and paste as in other games. Overall, fun game that takes time but it won’t cost you an arm and a leg unless you want to spend it.
Amazing game

Possibilities for next update
by DyzeeG on 2019/02/08 15:08
I love the game but I really wish we were able to practice and spar with other alliance team mates and challenge other players. It would be awesome if you could trade heroes between alliance members as well. Other than that it’s a great game keep up the good work.
Awesome
by CyndyML on 2019/02/08 14:17
As far as I’m concerned, this is the best game out there. It’s like they took the fun parts of other games, and put them all in one. Gem matching for the battles, town building for infrastructure, hero cards for strategy... PvE for basic fights, PvP for raids, team PvP for wars. Find the right alliance for yourself, whether you want chatty, intense, casual... it’s all out there. They even have auto play if you want to redo lower levels for rewards, so you can do real life and just tap and have it go! You can definitely play for free. I did for awhile, but my personal philosophy is that if I like a game and play it a lot, then I want to pay the game makers for the product. I do pay for this game (get a feel for the deals, and wait for a sale). But, I get a ton of fun from this, and play it a lot, and I love my alliance which has terrific people in it, so I am getting good value. If you spend money on games, then I suggest setting an annual limit, and looking for deals along the way. Like I said, just personal philosophy; you can play for free with no problem, just advancing slower than those who pay something.
Great Work
by Shadow Lord 1 on 2019/02/08 13:32

You can not get what you need to ascend your team. No matter what you play, it’s not a fair game when you do raids, I have a team almost 3000 power yet a 2000 can beat me up. I’m ready to delete this game. Other than that it is fun.

Awesome
by Sp7tst@7 on 2019/02/07 22:15
This game is crazy for people who love to rule over an empire and pretend like they’re actually in the game. A great game for night time and when you need to get away. I totally recommend this app for ages 6 and older!!
Stop the tutorial
by X51RocketExtreme on 2019/02/07 21:01
This game is sort of fun but I’m stuck in the tutorial. Why can’t I just play the game and figure it out myself very annoying. Also the hints that come ever 1-2 seconds make this game too easy.

by jibrno on 2019/02/07 08:42
It’s a fun game, but only if you spend a lot of money. They don’t listen to there fan base and I don’t see the game lasting. They are pushing away the ones that enjoy the game.
New updates

by shayde-lee on 2019/02/06 20:31
I hate being pushed after three days of play to buy with real money to move on without crawling progress. Also the fact I had no choice but high level players in pvp so I alway lose. Rigged and not worth the download
Pay to play
by Jedi 4590 on 2019/02/06 17:43
Oh you don’t have to spend money but it’s so hard if you don’t, especially now with all the new added buffs to hero’s, if your looking for a new game this isn’t it. Save your money and go elsewhere.
Fun Game, but not free, pay to play!
by Release Your Lock!!!! on 2019/02/06 16:36
Don’t play thinking you will get anywhere with strategy, it takes bank and lots of it!
It’s a lot of fun

You can still play and advance without using real money and it is well laid out game.
Extremely poor customer and app support
by Trnnp on 2019/02/06 02:55
I and many alliance members have had extremely poor customer and app support from the game. Disciplinary actions are very subjective and enacted without explanation, warning, or a chance to defend oneself. Examples: 1. An opponents team member had 7 flags in war when there can only be 6. There was only one person in the opponents alliance that had that name. Reported it to support as a bug or cheat. Support responded by saying that it was impossible and that no investigation was warranted. The ticket was closed although no resolution nor explanation could be given. Repeat reports have had no response. 2. An alliance member had a systems error occur where he bought $100 worth of gems equaling 10,000 gems through the game. He was given 20,000 gems which he promptly used. The error was identified by the game. So how did they choose to resolve this error? The game docked him 10,000 gems meaning his balance was -10,000 gems. Why is he being punished for the systems error??? 3. An alliance member went into what he thought was a dead alliance to recruit or see if they would want to merge with our group. He was reported as attempting to steal members which was felt to be disrespectful. The game punished him by banning his ability to talk in the game for 2 months including public forums AND alliance chat. The game-either SG or new administration Zynga-does not value its customers. This is seen by their response to game play issues. If it weren’t for the friends that I have made in game, I would have quit long ago. I still may since I communication is now being restricted as well.
Best. Game. EVER.

Massive cash grab
by DaddioWA on 2019/02/06 01:33
This game is no different than any other of the cash grab-like games that force you to spend some amount of money to succeed against others where the more you spend the more stacked your deck is in terms of hero’s and resources. Not casual friendly in the slightest bit.
The best game

Rigged but fun
by imthegreatestloser on 2019/02/05 01:32
There are a lot of aspects of the game that seem to be rigged such as the raids or the hero’s that you are able to get by working the game to build your team instead of just paying cash to power up quickly. However the maps and Titian fights are fun so ya gotta take the good with the bad
Good game
by Damikesta on 2019/02/05 00:58
I guess the best way to explain it is like bejeweled and clash of clans got married. Sounds weird I know. But there is a lot of room for strategy in this game. And you can join other members and start an alliance. Give it a try.
?
by ab020419 on 2019/02/04 23:28
Rate this love because like some say it make you spend a lot of money in order to compete, they should put just diamond prices foreach individual hero, like 5 star been the more expensive instead of spent too much money without knowing what you getting! I almost spent 100$ and only two 5 star heros! I will pay 10$ for a 5 hero easily
Great but...
by DDD84 on 2019/02/04 23:01
I really like this game. It reminds me of another game that's kinda similar but I don't remember the name. It would be better if it didn't crash so much. I was looking through the alliance list and it decided that it wanted to crash for no reason. Nothing pisses me off more than games crashing.
Major Rip Off!!!
by Trex2106 on 2019/02/04 19:54
Let me start of by saying I think this game is really fun, however the reason I am giving it a one star is because the raid system completes destroys the point of the game. I don’t understand how teams that are way inferior to mine can beat me 5, 6, or sometimes more times in a row. What is the point of upgrading and making your heroes so powerful if weaker teams can beat you and sometimes just plain humiliate your team. That seems like a big middle finger by the creators of this game to all its players. It’s a MAJOR RIP OFF!!!!! I’m getting to the point that if this is not fixed soon I will deleted this app!!!!! FIX THE RAID SYSTEM NOW!!!!!

This game is a decent waste of time my favorite part is that it’s not full of ads they do want you to buy jems and other micro transactions but you don’t have to watch a 30 second advertisementIn between every action you take like other games
Very Nice Game
by gazerofheaven on 2019/02/04 15:43
At first I was skeptical about this game because it looked like another “spend 5 grand and be the best mmo rpg on the server” type of game. I’ve played other games that were mobile specific, and they purposefully make it so that you can’t get the best items or best characters unless you spend a lot of money to get them. When I saw the diamond spending system, I cringed, but was pleasantly surprised as I got more and more familiar with the game. For one thing the diamond system is not the only way to get the best items or characters in the game. And if you are so inclined to spend money to get the best characters, it won’t break your bank. I literally spent 20 dollars on the game and got a full elemental team that was 3 stars or higher. Great for me in the sense I don’t feel like a newb and I can battle with people who had been playing for at least 3 months or less. The micro managing elements in this game are very easy to understand and very strict about leveling. If your “kingdom” is not level 5 than none of your buildings in the kingdom can be level 5. The programmers for this game realized that we can prevent someone from becoming over powered overnight and still encourage the users to build up storage, mines, and farms to appreciate the games mechanics even more. The leveling feature of each character is something I greatly enjoy. It gives the user the sense that buying the best character doesn’t mean you’ll be able to destroy the competition, and you have to put in some decent effort to reach higher standing. The ranking system alone makes it very nice to be able to knock the top three across all servers down a peg or two every day. The fighting system is based on luck and skill. Taking into account all characters abilities and elements, with just a hint of luck for that 15x combo you desperately need to defeat your opponent. All in all, I really enjoyed this game and I hope to make it through all stories just to get my team up to all 5 stars as well. 😊
Well designed long term mobile game
by applekat311 on 2019/01/11 21:25
I am a long time gamer of all varieties. I take my hat off to small giant for this game. The game play is just right for a mobile device. It’s got enough flavors of puzzle, rpg, and world building to keep you involved. The story is campy and silly, but that’s fine, he game never pretended not to be a little silly—and I like that. There’s little bits of humor everywhere if you look. I’ve been playing for going on a year and change now. Still have stuff to do and hero teams to build. You also don’t have to spend money to succeed, at all. It helps, sure, but there’s no gating with money, just increases your odds of getting good stuff if you have more chances at the hero lottery, so to speak. It’s also the only mobile game that does group team building right for the small screen. Prepping for wars and strategizing how to win as an alliance of 30 some people has been the best part for me. Reminds me of when I used to have more time for games like WoW. Sure you don’t get the full immersion, but still get some of the feels with this little game. My only beef is what a lot of folks complain about, the raid system seems super unbalanced and is downright annoying at times. But, it’s apparent small giant are always working their butts off to tweak it, so hats off to them again for that. Also, this game is not for the impatient. Strategy is the log game sometimes.
Addictive

I do like playing this game, I have been playing awhile and check on my empire frequently. Maybe too much. I especially like the match game twist, it’s a bit more engaging than an idle RPG. There is always a new mission or quest to complete. Titan to gang up on, Heroes to level up, or something to build or upgrade. It is very much a long term game, not for the impatient instant gratification types. I dare say you are better off not shelling out a lot of money for better heroes. If you take the slow steady approach you will have the ascension items before you need them most of the time. If you buy heroes you will end up having to wait for items to strengthen them far too often. If I were to make one complaint it would be how the raids are handled. Never mind your team power score, or even the multiple times they have revised how they are calculated, they have little bearing on your ability to win raids. It all comes down to how many special attacks you get off. Who ever makes the most special attacks, wins. Special attack energy is almost always slanted. The winner typical makes two to three attacks for the losers one. There will be seasons where it’s slanted in your favor, other times it will be slanted against you. Those rare times you are equally matched a raid can last upwards of 30 moves or more. If there were not rewards for engaging in raids, I wouldn’t bother doing raids. It’s that much of a nuisance.
New games, new names, same problems
by Al1223 on 2018/03/08 11:37
A needlessly elaborate schematic designed to confuse you into thinking you can play for free. Quickly gets too hard to do so. But more than the standard and expected money grab is the baffling added difficulty thrown at you to actually *play* the basic puzzle game. Upgrade a web of buildings in a long linear series to Recruit heroes to train heroes up levels to ascend heroes of five different types. With taking days to move each step. Why stop your gamers from playing? 1 star not for the money grab but the inane thoughts in the "boardroom" that this style of play is likeable by those that play puzzle matching games. Speaking of money grabs though. This developers here are masterclass. You can (and will) pay hundreds of dollars (I have spent close to 1000 on this game) buying *chances* to get what you need. And the chances are (not surprisingly) near zero. Exact chances? Guess. And you won’t have to guess who figured out that in their boardroom? You will be laughed at in that boardroom. Key items are kept from you from fully ascending you heroes though which can’t be bought. Ascending them *if* you get lucky and pay money is amazingly difficult at higher levels with months of grinding (during which time you will be spending more money). Honestly this game makes you wonder why anyone would deal illegal drugs. Here the developers have found something more profitable, zero material cost and somehow legal.
BEWARE!!!
by Kilo-g13 on 2018/06/19 09:22
To new players who will end up being suckers and spending money on a off chance you might, just mighty be lucky enough to get what you so desperately need for you to win just a bit more..... DON’T!! DON’T FALL FOR THIER TRICKS!!! There’s is nothing I can not stand more than a app like this who tempts poor unsuspecting sheep into slaughter giving up their hard earned money or allowance money for no and I mean NO GAIN! When you see other players with all the “top stuff” it is usually the game developers, betas or a friend of the app makers or they are fools and spent hundreds or sadly thousands $$$ so they will have all the stuff you dream about, that YOU will never be able to have! You’ll spend a small amount an might get a lil better then you will say yes i might be lucky and spend more and then before you know it you’ll be so deep in a hole with absolutely NOTHING TO SHOW FOR IT! It’s so disgusting of these type of game developers! They are no different than a casino a scratch off addiction and the drug dealer down the block getting you hooked so you’ll spend more! I’ve worked with people like this that make apps like this and that’s the reason why I don’t anymore! There are better ways to make big bucks on this app but to take millions from poor unsuspecting sheep is gross! Please players spend your money elsewhere or save it or don’t listen to me but don’t say you were never warned!
Hm. Not so much fun.
by mycastle4acloud on 2018/03/27 07:49
I started this as a fun way to do a match-3 game during my free time. Somehow, it turned into more of a chore than a fun adventure. The part I dislike the most, as some have mentioned, is the match-up during raids. I know the parameters and what they use to determine who you match with, but it still seems like it’s not fair either way and definitely not consistent at all. The amount of resources it takes to get anywhere in the game is a joke, even if you spend money, which is not a guarantee that you’ll get something you actually need/want. It would be different if, like other games, the money you spent got you what you needed all the time. But in this game, it’s a huge gamble and not worth the risk. I’m getting pretty tired of the whole process. It’s not fun anymore. The only good thing I kind of enjoy is the alliance I belong to, which isn’t even a high-ranked one, but it seems to have some fun people so I like that aspect. Now with the wars added, plus raids (which I still hate because there is zero consistency and the matching makes absolutely no sense still), plus the usual gameplay progression, Titans, AND quests/events... it seems like there’s too much going on in one game. Things happen so fast I barely get a chance to participate and that’s disappointing. Plus I feel to get anywhere in this game and to be a competitor, you have to spend money. Not cool.
Empires and puzzles
by Madre1961 on 2019/01/24 16:47
Customer Support is non existent. Been playing for well over a year. It takes a lot of time to play this game if you aren’t willing to spend money. So what is good, meeting other players and chatting. What’s bad, no trading post (the developers state they can’t provide this even though other games can) , the raids are a joke because the person can come back and get more points than you took, the challenges are fine until you get to the last level and then it’s so hard you can’t complete them unless you want to spend money. Saved all my gems for a ten hero grab, (where you have the chance for 3,4 and 5 star heros) and ALL ten were 3 star heros (statically impossible) not a single 4 or 5 star hero. When you complain to customer support, no help at all! But in the mean time they are upgrading things you don’t want or care about(like WAR which is another joke. I have tons of items I’ve won but it does nothing and is not useable. Oh and now my trading camp is fully loaded up, it takes food and iron for this. Now what can I use these massive levels of food and iron for? You can use some amounts for leveling players up but not this much! The rewards they give you are a joke. Now they have coins to earn but only on challenges (which you can’t complete) or chests (sometimes). Did I mention SUPPORT does NOT CARE, just a money grab.
Awesome
by CyndyML on 2019/02/08 14:17
As far as I’m concerned, this is the best game out there. It’s like they took the fun parts of other games, and put them all in one. Gem matching for the battles, town building for infrastructure, hero cards for strategy... PvE for basic fights, PvP for raids, team PvP for wars. Find the right alliance for yourself, whether you want chatty, intense, casual... it’s all out there. They even have auto play if you want to redo lower levels for rewards, so you can do real life and just tap and have it go! You can definitely play for free. I did for awhile, but my personal philosophy is that if I like a game and play it a lot, then I want to pay the game makers for the product. I do pay for this game (get a feel for the deals, and wait for a sale). But, I get a ton of fun from this, and play it a lot, and I love my alliance which has terrific people in it, so I am getting good value. If you spend money on games, then I suggest setting an annual limit, and looking for deals along the way. Like I said, just personal philosophy; you can play for free with no problem, just advancing slower than those who pay something.
TL;DR: Get this game!
by sarawithout on 2018/04/06 15:53
I love this game. Are there issues? Of course! But the game is engaging and overall fun to play. You can raid other players for trophies and resources (food and iron, the in-game currencies). You can join alliances and battle titans every day, and with a recent add-on you can now battle other alliances in epic PvP Alliance Wars. The biggest complaint I have seen is that the loot isn’t always great. No, it’s not. But if you got everything you needed to be able to ascend every single hero from titan loot, you would be bored with the game and complain that it’s too easy. The point of the game is to grow slowly at a marathon pace, not finish it in two months at a sprint. Sure, you can buy gems and get those epic heroes quickly, but you still have to play the game to get the materials needed to level those legendary heroes. There’s always going to be someone who has better heroes, stronger teams, and more hams than you. That just gives you something to strive for in the game. In all, it’s a great long-term game with a great community. If you want instant gratification in a game, play Mario Kart.
Started out fun but now too slow
by Prinimi on 2018/05/05 17:36
I’ve been playing this game for about six months. I really enjoyed it at first, and got fairly addicted. Then I realized it completely slows down as you advance. Leveling buildings and heroes becomes extremely time-consuming. The higher level building upgrades can take a week at a time. I bought gems a few times and also bought the VIP package to build faster. But the chances of getting five star heroes are so small that even after so many summons I only have one. And that one is essentially impossible to get to the final ascension level unless I buy some items for it. The ascension item drop rate for higher-level heroes is a very, very low. All these things are meant to slow down the game and make you spend more money, even if you’re already a paying customer! Why should it take six months to get the items necessary to ascend a five star hero? I could spend those six months playing a different game that doesn’t make me wait so long. At the end of the day, what’s the fun in sitting around and waiting? I want to play, that’s why I downloaded the game! Hope the developers look into this and improve the drop rates for five star heroes and ascension items. This would make the game more fun and make people like me less likely to quit.
Terrible design
by Glazed Ham on 2018/12/22 21:21
As others have pointed out, it’s gonna cost an INSANE amount of money to EVEN HAVE A CHANCE to climb the ranks. You can drop $100 on the largest gem bundle and you are not guaranteed to get even one top tier item/hero/etc. The alternative is to spend literally months grinding out the same boring levels to build up resources in the hopes that you can get what you need to progress and upgrade a single hero. No exaggeration, expect 3-5 pop ups every single time you open the app trying to get you to buy stuff. Porn sites have fewer pop ups. I’ve played other games with in app purchases, but this is a whole new level of money sink. To give an example, clash of clans also offers gems for purchase. However, you can get exactly what you want upgraded if you choose to spend money. Here, not only do you get fewer gems per dollar, but this is basically buying pulls on the lever of a slot machine. I don’t even know how that’s legal while I cannot play online poker because that’s “gambling.” Absolutely everything in the game is luck based, skill is not even a factor. You’ll get a lot more for your time and (if you choose) money elsewhere. Unless you have a couple thousand dollars burning a hole in your pocket, or a couple hours a day for the next year or so, avoid this one.
Beware…
by cereal.killer6 on 2018/11/13 15:25
As many others before me have mentioned, this game is all about the money regardless of how it’s disguised. It will seem manageable to start off, but quickly becomes too difficult to progress unless you spend spend spend. The ironic part about it, is that spending guarantees you absolutely nothing! In fact, the more you spend, the more frustrated you will be that you did and got hardly anything, and nothing that you will feel is worth your money. The upper levels are even more difficult and the thing about this is you will need to upgrade your hero’s to even be competitive so you will feel the urge to keep trying for better hero’s but the odds are like .001 that you will receive one. Shameful money grab. You will read that you can play for free, but believe me, you can’t beat anyone or progress for free. This is ridiculous. Don’t fall for it...... I haven’t spent nearly as much as others and it’s apparent. My hero’s are stuck waiting endlessly to be upgraded, I don’t have a 5* hero and I get beat or loose all the time to those you do. This is no puzzle game either. The boards are controlled in some manner and you will lose in the end. Don’t take my word for it, read the reviews or better yet go to the actual community forum.
A fun game with some catches.
by A competitive player. on 2018/07/29 09:07
I say it’s a fun game as I check it several times a day. I like the fact there is new Titans and quest to do every so many hours. Ranging from lower level for beginners up to hard for more advance players. The raids can be frustrating, how ever once you get a good team together and level them up it’s challenging but not impossible. Yes advancing your characters and buildings does get very time consuming once you get higher level. How ever that’s what advancing takes in a lot of games. As for the money aspect I’ve seen how you buy gems to try to get the “rare” characters only to get the same ones over and over, while it seems others have no problem getting them. My biggest issue is the Alliance wars, the pairing system should be more on a even basis. How ever it seems your always running into these huge and extremely powerful Russian Alliances that have insane fire power, are farmed to be elites or just plain have spent lots of money to get the best possible. And there are ALOT of them.
Pay LOTS to win
by The Elven Minstril on 2018/10/17 14:34
The game itself is fun at the start. There is a lot to do and it keeps you busy. The cost of the main resource, gems, is reasonable and you can subscribe for benefits. But after a few months you realize that the rate of reward is a borderline scam. I have spent hundreds of gems in an attempt to get the best heroes, or the limited time heroes, and inevitably, you end up with low ranked rewards or duplicates. I have gotten my most powerful hero 4 times. And when there is a special event, you spend extra gems to try to get the new heroes, but get the same duplicates you paid much less for before. And the rare items needed to advance your hero into the highest power levels are so rare that my characters have been capped for months. Of course, you can spend hundreds of gems on “deals” that give you a chance to win them, but in all likelihood will give you a lesser item you already have little use for. I went from believing this was the most cost effective game to realizing it is a total money grubbing scam. Of course, you don’t have to spend money. Just don’t expect to compete or get cool stuff if you don’t. My wife and I realized this after several months of subscribing. Guess we got suckered.
BEST GAME EVER
by the801legend on 2018/09/25 03:39
I previously wrote a bad review on this game, but I had to update it. This game is amazing. I truly must say this is the best, and most rewarding game I’ve ever played. All I can recommend is patience. Yes there are quirks to this game, sometimes the raids aren’t fair, sometimes the summoning isn’t fair, but trust me when I say it will all even out. They’ve really upped there customer service also. If your writing in to ask a question and not asking for your gems or money back, you will be taken care of. Again I must stress that on this game you win some and you lose some. I’ve spent alotta money on this game. And that is 100% by choice. This is NOT a pay to play game. It’s just gonna take longer to get the hero’s you want and level up etc. Give this game a chance and I promise it will reward you, and give you unbelievable satisfaction. GET THIS GAME NOW!!! There isn’t a better one in this genre, period. Thank you to the amazing staff, and for being a game that actually listens to its players. THANK YOU GIANT GAMES!!!!
Blatant money grabber
by Gammer579 on 2018/11/17 08:15
These developers are master class. It’s fun and addictive...at first. Honestly you won’t be able to put it down. It’s a well thought out rouse to get you hooked and then you’ll eventually reach a point where you can’t advance without paying. I’m not jaded and venting because I’ve spent a bunch of money and now regretting it. I’m actually impressed with how they did this. Listen folks. I have spent hundreds of dollars on this game. And I know what your thinking. But no, I’m not just venting. I don’t mind spending the money. It was entertaining and I had my fun. But really people, there’s no end to it. The money only buys you so much game play ability and then you’ll have to pay more to advance again. I was heart broken to read reviews about people who finally got a 4 star warrior. I have 5 teams all made up of 4 and 5 star warriors and I literally can’t finish the first story. I invite any developers reading this to look at my game profile and tell me And everyone else that I’m lying. If you are a person of means and can afford to spend the money, than feel free to do so. But be warned, spending that money will only get you to the next step. Rest assured, you’ll need to spend more to see what comes next.
Addicted - However, I’m with the majority
by Mrs. Hott on 2019/01/17 18:40
Love the game; however, the fact that you can only upgrade one building at a time, unless you invest cash (and then it’s only 2 at a time with no time or cost difference), the tremendous amount of resources and time required to advance anything and everything, and then the ridiculously hard challenges that you will never pass if you don’t have special items crafted for (& plenty of them) - it all makes it seem as though the game was designed to get you to spend and keep spending money. Because trust me, just investing a few dollars here and there would not help you in this one. I’ve played games where it would/did; this is not one of those games; this is spend, and continue to spend if you want to continue to advance at a decent pace. If you don’t mind playing the same boards over and over to earn the required supplies, while building up your base and heroes, which I’m fine with, then settle in. Make sure you choose a great alliance like I did, chatting with your family can help pass the time and if it’s a good one, they will give you pointers. Sorry mine is all full :) Good luck
A few problems
by rhryrc on 2018/07/01 15:48
1.) first of all and probably the biggest is not being able to destroy or delete your buildings for the fortress 1 misclick and that spot is taken forever 2.) I’m pretty sure y’all do this in purpose, but the thing is, is that the multiplayer system is pretty bad. I’ll be a level 7(which I am at the moment i think) and when other to fight other people I’ll only find people who have troops who are all super high level with the troops being at least 3 star(note most of my troops are 2 star and the highest level I have on one is 13 not even ascended, so yeah I don’t know what y’all are doing, but fix it, and the next thing isn’t really a problem a fact, this game is a bit to much pay to win(by a bit I mean a lot) it you had enough money you could have a max level fortress with max level hero’s and troops within a hour or day, but what’s good is that this isn’t a game that sets a limiter of how far you can go without money(I don’t spend money) but this is a four star on a gameplay standpoint
Sure, I’ll leave a review.
by Three Octaves on 2018/08/26 16:08
This Atlantis thing you’ve got going on, brilliant. You made sure that you can get 97 of those coins so that you’d have to beat at least 1 level on hard to get a character. Cool. Except for the moth on the last wave of the FIRST level. He’s OP. And unless I’ve already spent a bunch of money getting other characters there’s no way on Earth I’m beating this fella. I spent 175 gems to keep fighting, thinking that maybe it would be enough. It wasn’t. He can take out an entire crew. Just 5 turns. Unfortunately he had about 25% health. Which meant he could wreck twice in a row and still have 20% health. It’s a nice mix between “very clever way of getting people to spend money” and “good lord I have to delete this because I’m not adding it to my list of bills”. Thanks for the short ride. My dreams of having at least one character that wasn’t run-of-the-mill have been shattered and I’d rather just play sudoku now anyways. Sustainability is key. But by all means, swipe as much money from the people who can afford it and just start a new game once this one’s done. - Average person
Played since the beginning.
by Preakness1765 on 2018/10/28 03:44
I have been playing since the second month of this games release. I can say that it is fun, but absolutely ridiculous how low your chances are at getting five star heroes and even worse your chances are to get the items needed to ascend your heroes to the final levels. This game becomes boring, waiting day after day, month after month, for one good item to appear. You can pay $100 for a 30 hero summons and you get only 3* heroes, which you can get for free at the higher level training camps. These developers know how to milk their players. I constantly have full iron and food, and nothing to spend it on. What’s the point in having it if I never get the items I need to use my iron and food? Seriously, it’s addictive at first but after almost two solid years of playing, I’ve finally decided to write my review. I’m seasoned, so I know how this game works in and out. I will still play, but I think you should know what you’re in for. Don’t expect anything to happen fast, don’t expect anything for free, and be resourceful with your spending.
Read the reviews but ignore the stars.
by pmn759 on 2019/01/08 05:53
This is not a good game for someone with a game addiction like myself. lol I’ve been playing Castle Siege & like building type games. If you’re a f2p (free to play) player, understand it will take time to progress as you juggle spending resources (esp hams) on leveling up, training, & making battle items. The puzzle part has become more fun after I realized you don’t have to rush to make your moves (except for the Titans). The monsters will wait for you to take your turn (or maybe even two) before they strike. Also, ghosting helps (i.e., shooting into a blank area) because you can build up your mana to use your hero’s special power. So, there is some strategy involved. Alliance membership allows you to chat we teammates which is nice. I haven’t been in an alliance v alliance war yet so can’t comment about how the AI selects your opponents. We’ll see how long I keep playing. If I could only train myself to play a few minutes every couple of hours I could keep up with my real work. lol.
Great game
by Glmpoo on 2018/10/13 01:34
In response to mycastle4acloud, this person doesn't get it. In order for game developers to make money and continue to make great games they cannot just let people have everything for free. This game is FREE to download and play. Do you not get all the best hero's? Do you actually have to be patient and work at something to get what you want? Might you have to shell out a little dough if you want better? Yes. This is how these guys/gals make money in this industry. And hey do games have some bugs, absolutely. Boo hoo that the matchmaking isn't exactly how you want it. Aside from all that, this game is wonderful. I was being bugged by the ads for this game for quite some time. Finally said screw it im gonna check this game out. As far as puzzle rpgs go this is by far the best one out there. You can easily play this game and not spend any money. I like the challenge events, titan battles, wars, and story. All of it. Very excited to see whats in store for the future of this game.
This game is rigged
by okdokiegamer on 2018/12/04 02:26
So i’ve been paying attention for a long time now, this game encourage people to buy and spend more money unnecessary, they will match you with weak people but then “randomly” place your element jewels that other team is strong against, even if you reroll and pick the weaker ones, you still lose since you will end up building mana for weaker team to wipe out one by one. The stronger elements barely appear. Most people are competitive, and think their teams are weak but the truth is the game makes you lose against AI so you can buy more. Have you ever seen that randomly you can win much stronger team by oooh combo with matching jewels everywhere, and then boom lost 50 points where you find no jewels to match at all and keep building their mana the entire match. This is only happens in raid and not war. There is a time you can see damage increase or decrease, even your mana gain becomes faster if the game wants you to win, if not the other team just again “randomly” target your main character (when points win are around 40ish). This is not random, this is pre coded to make you become competitive and spend more. This has been my observation and experiences so far.
It is what is but can be fun at s risk
by C from the bay area on 2019/02/09 10:17
Let’s face it, the reviews you see about people complaining about all the money spent are 100% true!!! You can play this game without spending tons of money but it might get tedious and boring. You can also drop loads of cash and still hit s brick wall because you don’t have rare items to level your heroes with. The money complaint is ridiculous because most of the interactive games cost money to play now. Yes, we’re all fools for paying so much to play the same games o we and over. I’ve been playing this game for almost 300 days now and I like it. It isn’t as stressful as games like GOW where it’s all about spending. As I stated earlier, you can play with small amounts spent or none at all but it might bore you. Join an alliance and play twice a day and you will level up but not as fast as some who spend. The big complaint is that you can’t trade items in your alliance to other, you can’t trade or buy needed items (which I understand the buying part because that can make the game turn into a pay to play), but at least you should be able to trade the awarded items for ones you need. I have 20 worm capes and need 1 hidden dagger. I’ll give up 10 of those capes for this item but I can’t. That is fair so players can grow. You also can’t do some of the basic chat groups or copy and paste as in other games. Overall, fun game that takes time but it won’t cost you an arm and a leg unless you want to spend it.
PvP system is frustrating
by JH116 on 2017/11/28 00:33
The game overall is decent. I like the building and collecting resources and progressing through the campaign world. The system is set up so you have team power that should be a gauge to how easy or hard fighting another player will be or certain quests should be in relation to your team. This is where it falls short and is terrible and frustrating. In PvP you can see what your opponents team power is in relation to yours and combat should be based on that. It isn’t!!. The developers decided to make team power irrelevant. When combating another player who should be relatively easy because their power is significantly lower then yours still somehow destroys you. Even the team you have for some reason doesn’t increase in their special abilities like I. The campaign by your opponent seems to always get their special abilities. It’s incredibly frustrating and it’s like the developers just made it this way to make you want to buy things in game to get stronger part members. So even if you have a higher team power you can still be totally annihilated by a much weaker player. It’s ridiculous. I deleted the game!! Don’t bother with this game.
Addictive game
by Timothy77 on 2018/02/03 05:11
I’ve been playing E&P for a couple months now and let me say it is extremely addictive. It’s super fun and everyone that I’ve run into has been nice and helpful. With that being said I have a few problems with the game. I feel like it is to hard to grow past a certain point. I currently have a team of 3 3 star heroes and 2 4 star heroes. I have my training ground going pretty consistently and I’m only getting more 3 star heroes. I have saved up 300 gems twice to do the elemental summons which both resulted in 3 star heroes. I feel like if I spend the time and effort to save up 300 gems I should be guaranteed a 4 star hero with a chance at a 5 star hero. Keep in mind even with doing all the daily chests and free video I usually get around 10 gems a day so it takes forever to save up just to waste it on a 5ish % chance at a 4* hero. Another issue I have is the titans not taking up the whole area. Why can’t the titans be able to take damage from all lanes? It’s a lot of wasted damage. P.s. Please optimize the game for iPhone X.
The best
by iam4au2 on 2018/01/31 23:08
I adore this game. It is so addictive I keep it open almost constantly. Of course I think the alliance I belong to is the best. Shout out United. You will not be disappointed. It's free to play and it's not pushy about shoving ads in your face about gems constantly. Also there aren't ads for anyone else either. You can choose to watch one ad a day for some free items if you choose. Developers actually listen to the players about new updates. I can't say enough positive things about the game. I've read the negative review and it's my opinion they don't understand the gameplay and haven't taken the time to research or read the guide. PvP is not just about players power you also have to take into consideration abilities and ascention of other players. The game has an easy searchable forum if you are ever confused about gameplay as well as a you tube channel. It's super easy but also has depth if you want to dig in.
Empires & Puzzles
by Baulder001 on 2018/08/31 19:51
Do not get this game. It’s horribly unbalanced and sneakily deceptive in its game play. At first, it starts out fun and enjoyable. Then you hit a wall. A wall placed there so you have to try and spend money to get further along. The problem? The gambling system is terribly awful and works against you. The chance to get decent heroes is abysmally small and in order to upgrade them to the fullest, you’ll need to wait for drops from Titan creatures. You can only engage these creatures if you are in a guild. On top of that, you’ll need to wait and pray that your guild-mates attack it/ kill it. The item drops are still subjective to a crap gambling system. So you’ll not lucky get the items needed to upgrade your deck. Also, the Raid system is horrid. This is the process in which you attack other players decks. The Raid teams don’t follow the same mechanics as your team does. The AI attacks you at will after so many turns. Attacking them builds their mana bar and they will obliterate you with special attacks. You only build mana by completing combos. Which is the only way to win, so facing a team much weaker than yours can still mean defeat if your rolling bad luck.
Great but.....
by thebeardedbro on 2018/09/24 16:51
I love the game I hope the creators see this review because they did a fantastic job on this game and I have the same complaints as the other reviews. The raids are very challenging once you get so far and you have to spend a bunch of your food just to get to fight a level that’s a little lower you know you might have a chance at. If they were a way that they could bring down the size gap in raids and I mean if you go over 3000 hp doesn’t meant you should go against ppl that are 3800. Same goes for the other way. 2400 shouldn’t be playing a 3000 hp player. Not fair. Oh and one more thing THE LOOT YOU RECEIVE from titans and wars and such lately has been very limited on anything decent and the scene a hero you need certain things and those are just impossible to get and I have spent over 60-70 bucks on this game and don’t have anything to really show for it. The game though is right as rain just needs some fine tuning on things is all.
Update locked me out!
by Marlene.J on 2018/09/24 21:32
UPDATE: It’s happening AGAIN! Locked out, no update available, exact same thing that happened before. Help! I went to play as I have been for a long time, and got a little box that said “UPDATE available” with a button to Update. I clicked the update button which took me to the App Store Page. The ONLY option there was to “Open”. There was no update option. I hit Open and it took me back to the game where the same Update available box was. I cannot get into the game at all now because there is no way to close that box! I have effectively been locked out! Gee, thanks! Bad enough that it takes days to upgrade anything, it teases you to spend a fortune In gems at a (slim-to-nothing) chance at 5-Star elements, when you only get an otherwise easily obtained 3-Star one. You have to play the same lower levels over & over because you can’t get strong enough elements needed to advance or fight. And because of that you can’t get the rarer items needed to ascend 4-star elements from level 3 to 4. I love this game, but it’s fast becoming old with no way to advance. AND NIOW NO WAY TO PLAY AT ALL SINCE I’M LOCKED OUT!
It’s OK
by ScottE1987 on 2018/04/18 15:19
This game can be pretty addicting. It’s a build your own empire game that effects your production. You can also join guilds to fight super strong titans. So the more in your guild the better. You also need a guild to go to wars with other guilds. You might find yourself playing and getting really good items at the beginning of the game but, it slows down and the opportunity to ascend heros to higher stars are made very difficult. I suspect that the people who made the game boards those items for themselves. I paid for some gems but, it’s such a waste of money for crappy rewards. The other big downside is the PvP it is so off on some weeks that you maybe getting really good and fighting a range of players and winning to getting beat against players with 200+ power totals less than your own. It’s like the developers flips a switch every so often and it doesn’t seem like there is a good constant algorithm that is fair. If I could rate this game a little less then I would.
Fun game but
by AhzieMina on 2018/06/03 02:39
I enjoyed this game in the beginning but it is very hard to progress without spending money. New players will be raided by other players who much more advanced than they are. Which means that your hard won trophies and resources will be taken from you. You can’t win against these bullies because they are too strong. The developer needs to address this by limiting the stronger players to their own levels. Make it a fair game for newcomers. If you don’t have the money to buy advanced warriors you’re screwed. I’ve been playing for a few months and can’t get beyond bronze level. I was raided 12 times in less than 2 hours by players way stronger than me. Very unfair. Most of my trophies are gone. I don’t raid other players who are way weaker than me. I will not recommend this game for people who can’t afford to buy their way through it. I will be deleting this game because of the unfairness to new players.
Good but a few things need changes
by Ninigirl24 on 2018/07/16 18:36
This game is really fun and has a good storyline as well, My family, Friends and I are all in an alliance. However a few changes and additional features to this game would make it better Things to change: The price for Epic summons are pretty high and I’m running out of options for getting gems. Other players are very OP just because they throw money on this game. This is no fair to people who have played much longer but still can’t beat Money spenders. Yes I know TC20 is a way to get 3* 4* and 5* but the chances for getting anything other than a 3* is a about 15%, which In My opinion (and many others) is not fair. Dew to the time and resources it takes to get to TC20 and the the time and resources it takes to train JUST ONE hero is very extreme, especially for the poor results coming from it. Things to add I feel it would be very convenient for there to be a way to change the placement of the buildings that you built on your Base. This would be a nice way to organize all your buildings and make it less cluttered on the screen. Having a more organized Base would make it easier to find the buildings your looking for. It would also make your base look better and easier to collect finished products. Thanks for reading! I would be very glad to see any of these changes made in the game as it would make for a better experience for all who agree.
Stupidly expensive (and buggy) free game
by ltsk on 2017/09/26 15:57
This game would be addictive and heckafun if it weren't so ridiculously expensive to play. It costs a heck of a lot to pay for the basic currency that lets one do nearly everything. If you don't mind playing very briefly and letting it sit idle for a couple of days before you play again, you might be all right, but the game is just too much fun for me to do that without being very frustrated. If they'd only charge less, I'd be able to give this game a couple more stars, but the in-game prices are verging on highway robbery. UPDATE (now a 1-star review): They did something that now has rendered the game so buggy, it crashes both the app and the device you're using mid-fight. Points are lost (both for yourself and for your alliance if the crash happens during a team fight), turns to play are lost, experience is lost, loot is lost, PvP raids are lost. Doesn't look like they care enough about it to fix it, though. They'll just take your money and leave you with a halfway unplayable game. Don't bother downloading this game.
2 stars and u better read....
by Hissogon on 2019/01/25 17:08
I have spent 35€ only 48 hours after having downloaded the game. But I soon faced connection problems while in campaign mode and lose energy ( which is the most important thing in the game for paying) . So after 3 times it happened, and not only to me but to a lot of players I wrote to the support who answers me : “It is not out fault but it come from your connection network”. The fact is that every other devices connected to internet in my whole home were working great during this lagging time...and added to this -> a lot of players faced the same problem , it looks like the all planet has a modem 56k while Empire and puzzles is the most reliable application on earth. I only asked a virtual refund (energy drink) to compensate those losses and the wrote me they “can’t give anything “ as it looks like virtual items are more valuable than real items : money I spent. Yes the game is good and great BUT DONT SPEND A PENNY just play the game free you will not face delusion.
Be Selective
by Spatzus on 2018/09/24 14:19
I’ve read some of the reviews with some amazement. Yes, raids are a pain and lean toward unfair. Then DON’T PLAY THEM. They have nothing to do with you progressing, so if you don’t like them, don’t play. The reason you can’t simply buy everything you need is that then the game really does become only for those who have the money to spend. If you don’t like the odds on buying heroes, DON’T BUY THEM. I just wait for the gem sales, which are really cheap, and then cash them in for multiple tries. Most will be lower level filler, but you do get higher ranked heroes and, when you do, it’s exciting. The guilds are definitely a high point and actually worth joining. I’ve been playing a long time and have progressed pretty far without spending more than about $30-40 and that’s over the whole time I’ve been on.
This game
by 123Tiffany321 on 2018/10/27 23:53
Really ya kick us out the war and don’t give anybody no rewards what so ever for what they done in the war. Another reason why I’m giving a one star is that I spend my gems and I haven’t gotten nothing good but one time as in getting a higher player card until I used my season two coins. It’s like it’s impossible to get anything good and the levels are just to way hard to beat most of the time. It takes me way too many tries to go to the next level and even move up to upgrade. Also the heros I get to upgrade my own hero are always a one star hero. This game can be a lot better but the stuff that are going on are ridiculous. And why must I wait for a building to build. Most of them especially if they are in the high numbers take days to finish. Why can I build more than one building at the same time it would make it better. This game is fun but all these wait times and not getting what you deserve makes it slow and makes you not want to play. Keep the fun and not make it forever to win something good.
No different than gambling, just much worse odds than a casino.
by Rayraythe8th on 2018/02/03 22:25
This app pulls you in by the odds. The odds of getting that big hero for starters, even though you can blow twenty bucks and get nothing you couldn’t have gotten from the free daily summons. It makes you feel good to hit the jackpot with that one big 5 Star hero, but the odds of that happening are so slim that you may become infuriated with this expensive slot machine and quit long before that happens. Unless you throw a lot of money at the game, which is what the developers want of course. It’s a good puzzle game sure, but the rng aspect of it is all about making a buck. It’s like gambling, sure it feels good when you win but I’ve never played a slot machine with odds as bad as this game. Personally I’d avoid it, I know some people that are addicted and have blown hundreds on it only to get diddly squat in return. I’m pretty much done myself, all work and no reward is not a good way to repay your customers for playing your game.
PvP System is Broken
by MyOhMyCrystal on 2017/11/09 10:07
This game is a lot of fun with the quest line, Titans to fight, buildings to upgrade, etc, but the one thing that has me extremely frustrated with this game and playing less? The PvP system. Like many others here, I think the system is completely rigged and the basis on which it’s evaluating you and your opponent is worthless so in turn, you can spend a 1000 Food to reset the opponent to one more favorable but even when you get an opponent who should be an easy fight for you, turns about being a slaughterhouse for no obvious reason. I’ll defeat an opponent that is marked as hard for me and then in the next turn lose all all of that progress and more on an opponent who should be easy. It’s one of those things where you have to think the developers are setting up players to be frustrated so they purchase items to get stronger. But don’t do it! It’s a trap. It doesn’t matter how strong or weak you are in the current PvP system - it’s going to ensure you’re not progressing as you should in player rankings.
Great game. Too expensive
by HonestlyReally223 on 2019/01/27 18:18
Love this game. Beautiful combination of my favorite types of games. BUT.. they try way too hard to get WAY too much money from you. By level(province) 10-12 it starts to become so difficult you either give in and spend stupid amounts of money or you just chug along slowly and hope that maybe next month you’ll have the power and resources available to make it to the next level. Example: typical reward for watching and ad or completing a task is like 3 gems. To buy 1 MAYBE(and it’s only a maybe) good character costs 300, not to mention the time it costs to try to level the character up enough to have value. Could be a five star game but they really need to make this a more realistic endeavor for us poor folks. DEVELOPERS: Let me watch more ads instead of 1 every 15 hours. Let me help you make more passive income. Make prices reasonable. You’re not as good as an Xbox or PlayStation game. Stop trying to charge me more than they do
Money sucking game
by CanRut on 2019/01/25 04:14
If you’re looking for a puzzle game to enjoy and relax, then this is not for you. This is not even a puzzle game!!! Once you get to lvl 5, it’s almost impossible to progress without spending money because: - It takes forever to get the energy to refill unless you spend money to get gems. - The energy cap is very little and limited so you can the whole day waiting just to play for 10 minutes. - Once you upgrade building, it takes up to a few hours or even a few days (seriously) to finish unless you spend gems. - The rng when you raid other players is crap. Most of the time you will lose to a lower lvl player with lower power just because the spawn rate is horrible and you only have 6 raid energies which takes up to a day to refill unless you spend gems. - There is no chance for you to pull a 5* hero and very low chance to pull a 4* one. If you do daily missions and stuff like that to collect gems, it will take you at least 5 days to get 1 summon and most of the times it’s a 3* hero. - There is also no way to upgrade your troops if you don’t want to spend money. - You will be frustrated and upset because you made no progress in the game and keep losing to other players. Another thing is that you can’t revenge if they are online or use a different app version (makes no sense to me). There are more cons about this game but this should be enough. JUST DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME FOR SOMETHING NOT EVEN WORTH THE TRY.
Needs balance
by NRF7782 on 2018/02/22 07:04
The game is good and has a lot of potential, but there are a few things that need to be balanced. The raid system is the big one. Similarly higher level quests and story levels are ridiculous. Does team power not play into the game at all?your team can be hundreds of points higher than opponents but still get run through. #1 Revamp the raid system. Opponents heroes special skills should not charge based on how many times they get hit. Instead It should be set to fill by how many individual hits they deliver just like the players heroes. That would eliminate getting hit by four or five special hits before the player can deliver one. This should also apply to higher level quest/story line bosses. #2 Training times for a chance at a higher lever hero are excessive especially to end up with multiple low level heroes. 48+ hours of waiting for a two or three star hero is insane. At least increase the odds of getting a a 4 or 5 star hero.
Extremely disappointing
by trick not a treat on 2018/12/15 03:39
You can play this game putting money into it for less than one level. Near the end of one level and lots of money later you will not be able to get enough legendary figures to make it past the first level. Nor will you be able to obtain the needed materials to ascend to the third level on legendary figures. Even when you pit money into the game you never know what your going to get and 90 % of the time your disappointed getting the same figures over and over getting you nowhere. The challenges are ridiculously hard where having all legendary figures ascended to top of level three not able to go further without winning more battles to get the ascension tools and you still can’t win the battles to advance so you are effectively stuck. I am disappointed because this was my relaxing time when I first started playing but now will delete game for a game I can continue advancing and enjoying.
It’s fun, but could be better!
by Dp_Bunny on 2018/12/01 07:38
I have played this game for a year now, and for the most part I have enjoyed it. However, with each update to not only fix “bugs”, but also changes some game plays. Raids, and especially Alliance Wars have now became off balance with the last few updates and so called fixes to the game, constantly you are, as a player versus player, or young Alliances are not equally paired off with those you are up against of “supposedly equal” team points. If that’s not enough, you do have to put forth some real money into the game to get anywhere, how much depends on how much you are willing to pay. You can go the long slow way, but keep in mind, it may become frustrating if you expect build a strong team in a short time. You can find some “tips and tricks” on the game, and there is a forum that offers support to learn the game better. Good Luck.
Excellent!
by Dylanc1986 on 2018/08/15 20:26
I have been playing over a year and have a 3200+ team. I've never spent a cent and enjoy the game thoroughly. For those who spend hundreds or thousands and then blame the developers? Stop! Be patient and work your way up. There are a lot of techniques that work in this game but you have to use your brain, not just your wallet. It's fine to make purchases, and in fact thank you for supporting the game, but don't go crazy. You can have fun without paying, just don't expect to be amazing in your first month. I love the mix of raids, titans, wars, story map and quests. There's a lot to do. Every type of battle has tricks you can learn to succeed. A friendly active alliance will help you grow. My few complaints are that I truly believe that in raids, E&P manipulates the frequency of colors in the starting matching field. This can make it tougher to win. They say they do not manipulate colors, but long experience and counting color frequencies has me thinking otherwise. Second, there were points as I was growing when I hit plateaus where I couldn't really improve and I almost quit twice, with months away from the game. Other than that, great game and my absolute favorite mobile app. Keep it up!
Could have been a 5 star
by Bus3je on 2018/11/02 01:17
I really wanted to give it a 5, but there are some things this game lacks. I would love if in raids they paired you close to opponents that are actually close to your level instead of opponents that are much higher than you. I also think it’s terrible that when you finally get enough gems to summon in an Elemental Summon you get the same rare you already have every time. How many of the same rare characters do I need? Even if they were Epic or Legendary I’d still be tired of getting the same characters. The game also then makes it nearly impossible to get past a certain level within Province 1 unless you have Legendary characters or a ton of battle items that you can’t make because they don’t give the right resources. It seems like a very sad endless loop of impossibles so you’re stuck playing the same stages over and over again.
Fun but really a waste of time
by deschenm on 2018/11/01 20:58
I found this game fun, but soon realized it's pointless to waste your time on it. Once you get to a certain level with your characters it becomes very evident that this game is stacked against you worse than any casino. In order to beat certain levels to find the "loot" you need to upgrade your characters your character need to be rather strong. Unfortunately, in order to pass to these levels you already need the loot to upgraded characters so they are strong enough, which they are more than willing to sell you at a nice inflated price of course. You only really find this out once the game is well underway and you have invested enough time to get nicely frustrated. Also, other loot that aids you in the game appears to be harder and harder to find with each update, not cool! I'm done with this game. I don't mind spending some cash for a good game but the prices they are demanding are way to high.
It’s a fun challenge!
by CharlotteChe on 2018/10/31 11:36
It takes work to get going, it’s not too hard and I don’t believe you ‘have’ to spend money. It can get a little grind intensive to start with but it’s fun. It takes some time and effort to understand the best strategies. You can’t just expect to play without some learning. The people giving one star because they think they need to spend money need to understand you can’t just jump into PVP. You need to spend time leveling up your and bettering your team. However, that being said, the PVP can be pretty unfair. I’m not sure how it determines who fights who, but it’s not always evenly matched. Maybe once a higher lever is achieved it will even out? You also can’t play for hours because your energies need to recharge, but that’s a good thing on such an addictive game. Over all it’s a good game worth the challenge.
Game is ok
by Anon 7777777 on 2018/05/03 18:46
Alliance wars are stupid at best. As an alliance you should be able to have the option to be in a war or not as the current way to war is weak and an alliance can be outmatched easily with no hope of a win. Secondly, and more importantly is that if you spend actual money on this game to purchase gems and then use those gems to summon. It is ludicrous that you can’t purchase what you want. Only a chance of getting what you pay for. So if you want an epic, or legendary then you you have to summon with only a chance to get one and if not spend more again, for only a chance. That’s like going to he store needing sugar and handing the store some cash and hoping that you might get it. So pay real money for something you don’t know if you will or won’t. Seems like a rip off to me. If I want an epic then I should be able to use MY money to get one. The game overall really needs improvements If it is to become a next level game. The idea is good but as always, the developers only want your cash. And they don’t hide that in the way they set it up. If they put as much thought into making it a great game as they do on how to get in your wallet, they wouldn’t have to try so hard to get your money as you wouldn’t mind spending a little. But I certainly won’t hold my breath for that. You can play free, but you will get bored long before you really get anywhere.
Cool concept, PVP is utter trash.
by Jacksonion1324 on 2018/12/22 04:37
The game is alright overall. There is plenty to do, but what absolutely ruins this game is the fact that the PVP “raids” are almost impossible to win early game. (They are also required to advance in the story). When matching you against an opponent, 9 times out of 10, it will place you against someone who is almost impossible to beat with your current team. It almost makes it necessary to spend money on the game to upgrade your heroes to stand a chance, although I’m not sure that this would work because it would likely just face you against even harder opponents. Either you spend money, or you just stop playing the game and let your resources build up slowly upgrading your heroes and base, essentially wasting time doing nothing, and wasting storage space on your phone. It is ridiculously unbalanced once you get to level 4 or 5. The devs need to fix this game breaking flaw because it is almost impossible to enjoy a game where you can’t win.
