Become the lord and master of a real medieval castle! Accept new subjects, assign them to their duties, train and protect your men and women! Defy your rivals and laws of physics as you build and upgrade your fortress! Your pudgy warriors look great in their shining armor! Nourish and train your troops, and they’ll crush the armies of Grav the Mighty Brainpan, find the shelter of the fearsome OM-NOM, put the Abyss Lord back in his place, and also burn down a couple of enemies’ castles! All day long your scribes scratch their heads with quills, treasurers spill coins on the floor and blacksmiths drop anvils on their feet for the sake of your prosperity! Prepare true specialists, become wealthy and influential! Build a dating room and watch your subjects have children who’ll soon grow up and serve you too! Assume command, my lord! Here are some of the opportunities you get in the game: - Story-driven campaign. In hundreds of missions your heroes fight orcs, giants, skeletons and even dragons! Battle magic, cold steel and cunning strategy – the end justifies the means! - Castle construction. Build new rooms for your stronghold and upgrade the existing ones. You’ve got all you need to create a dream castle! Begin the construction now! - Developing the villagers. Each of your subjects can learn new skills and wear any equipment. Train great warriors and scribes… and then swap them with each other! - Multiplayer. Get medieval! Burn and plunder the castle of someone you don’t like… And you don’t like all of them, right?

No royal clothing

I’d like to see dresses and set up a royal family and I’ve yet to see that option

Not fun, you need to pay
by guayanese mango chutney, MD on 2021/07/26 04:52
This game is not very fun compared to other games. There’s not much sense that goes into the one activity available and again it’s not really fun. You win every single fight without pause until it is impossible to win period. Maybe it has the potential to be fun? If you were able to actually play it. But you hit a wall after about one day where you would need to spend about $30 in order to continue playing. Breakdown: you need 4 characters at a certain level. It costs 750 gems to upgrade 1 character. It costs like $10 to get 250 gems. Once you upgrade one you have the chance of getting more characters born at a higher level capacity. This process takes 9 hours and is not a guarantee. Just absolutely not fun by any definition. There is no reasonable way around paying including watching adds or putting in more time. Not worth downloading.
Slow
by ouui_mama on 2021/07/23 19:39
When I first got this game it was pretty fast paced and enjoyable but after about a week it slowed down really fast and I’ve had it for almost a year and all I can do is log in just long enough to collect my resources then can’t do much. Also I hate logging in because for the first 2 minutes I’m just closing everything that pops up.
Fun to a point
by kdmcE on 2021/07/23 14:19
Fun game, I really enjoy it. I am leader of a clan and that is where my major frustration comes in. If you find a player you would like to get in your clan, there is no way to contact them. Want to talk to one person in the clan, have to do it publicly in clan chat, as there is no other way to talk. Game needs to give players a mail system that allows us to privately talk to other players like other games do. I can’t ask people questions as by the time they come online, it may be lost in chat many messages above. If you could message them, they would be able to see it and respond more easily. Recruiting would be easier also, and warning players about to be kicked would stop any embarrassment at being called out publicly. Other than that, events are fun with good rewards, matchups are part of the strategy it seems,and sometimes it works other times you are pitted against monsters and there is no way to win.

The game is so fun
Fun for a while.
by Daniel.P.H on 2021/07/20 21:11
Game is a lot of fun for a while. After a while, of course, you hit a wall and it becomes extremely difficult to progress without spending money. Upgrades start taking 5, 6… or more days, to progress a single level. And it takes just as long to even collect the resources necessary to upgrade. Every once in a while there is a GREAT deal on diamonds where you can get like 20,000 for around $6. Other than that the purchasable content isn’t really worth it.
The game is good but is frustrating at times
by Zombies 935 on 2021/07/19 17:18
I’ve been playing this game daily and I’ve reached the point where I’ve needed to have a few million coins to upgrade. Getting the first million is no problem but once I reach two million it’s like I’m enemy number one. I’ll put my phone down for a few hours and find that I’ve been attacked 6-7 times and everyone steals 2-3 thousand gold putting me back into the hundreds. I’ve had to hoard daily resource chests and watch the daily ads to earn diamonds so I can afford upgrades since it’s extremely rare for me to earn enough to afford them on my own. The I’ve had to grind to get the premium memberships so I’m able to produce enough gold to afford it. It’s ridiculous on how much production is for regular players as compared to those who cough up the money to get it. It would be fine if it was double but ten times the amount?
Good game

Fun for a bit.
by TTph008-234 on 2021/07/15 16:24
The game is fun in the beginning, but sadly that does not last too long. Once other players, who are literally up to 500% your strength start farming you, it’s over - unless one buys gems to upgrade. I’m deleting and moving on.
blatant pay to win ruins potential
by Bob00000000000000000000001 on 2021/07/14 21:41
aside from insane pay to win microtransactions that completely ruin any hope of a competitive game its a decent Fallout Shelter knock off
Enjoyable.
by Fjjdjdf on 2021/07/10 02:28
It’s actually a pretty enjoyable game. I was just in a car wreck and this is helped keep me sane and able to help me enjoy my time while healing! The wait times to build things can be pretty long but I fill my time with the arena and battles.
False Advertising
by psiucrash24 on 2021/07/09 21:35
I got this game because I saw the ad for the game and to my dismay, it plays nothing like all the advertisements I have seen. It’s just like Fallout Shelter with other elements for PVP battles and contests, but the core of the game is the same. The dwellers run different rooms and can be upgraded to get more resource amounts and they can be kitted with weapons and armor. But again, this does not play anything like their fake ads.
It wouldn’t open so I uninstalled it from my phone,
by Haylieghz on 2021/07/09 13:29
When I tried to connect to Game Center, nothing came up, so I thought I lost my progress. Then, I purchased 6000 diamonds for the new account to hopefully get to where I was before a little quicker, and the option for my old account came up. When I loaded my old account I lost all 6000 diamonds. I don’t know if there a glitch in my phone or what but I’m glad I have my progress, sad I lost gems before I got to use them.
I like it a lot
by austin stoneafin on 2021/07/09 00:28
I love this game and I might want you to make some more updates because all I just love this game and maybe I might want like some extra level Old Navy on you and he may be something different kinds of stuff
You are the best games I’ve ever seen in App Store
by cody573 on 2021/07/06 19:31
This game is amazing you should download it it’s more the Bears it’s a good strategy game and it’s amazing it’s way better than Clash of Clans it’s amazing but I also kind of wish that you will get 500 gems it is I’ll be cooler but everything else is amazing no bugs no great glitches or anything it’s the best game
Banned for no reason

How fun and addicting this game is
by MSBJUKEE on 2021/07/01 21:59
This game is so fun and addicting to the point where I have been playing it for hours now
Fun, But needs work
by Sir Thrall on 2021/06/30 21:42
Very addictive game but there needs to be a sort button for gear for your dwellers. So for your archers/mages/melee give the option to do that an to sort from rarity then to what’s actually best on top. I think sorting threw gear in this game is the least enjoyable part of the game an can be down right frustrating. Because developers could easily fix this. That’s why it’s 3 stars review.
Pretty good game
by Zaythegoat216 on 2021/06/25 21:59
It’s a pretty good game. I feel like there certain things that can be done better. I feel like you should be able to play the game offline but you can’t do any of the pvp part of the game until you are back online. I also feel like you should be able to make money faster but that just apart of the game. I don’t really feel like it should be fixed but it would great to earn money a little faster. I also feel like the combat part of the game is cool but I would like to be able to speed up the fight without paying for the premium version of the game. Also I would like to be able to permanently buy the goblin assistant with in game currency or real money but you should be able to have the option to pay either way.
Multiple times per day offers
by Bro Fleet on 2021/06/21 06:50
Every time u open the game u have to click through pay to play offers. They have different times to expire but it doesn’t matter they’ll throw it back up a day later. Takes 10 seconds just to get tot the game screen. Missed clan wars from last minute deploying and having offers to click thru. I’m throne room 11. Have had 2 builders for over 2 years and have nothing left to construct. So why the F am I constant getting a offer to buy another one!? Just shots in the dark at players hoping we’ll buy anything. Skip the game devs don’t listen. Still haven’t gotten rid of the cool downs in guild territory which didn’t start with cool downs. They implemented after the fact
Until you stop with the fake demos!!
by SetecFl on 2021/06/18 07:39
The game is actually fun but the demo ads are full of crap! Fire your marketing team!!! I’ll change my review once you stop with the fake ads and the constant pop-ups of “buy this” crap! Let us enjoy the game you created and stop with the spam! Otherwise my 1 star stands!
A lot of bad reviews
by its a good game, bad reviews on 2021/06/18 04:40
I see a lot of people saying that this game is slow going, not fun, and a waste of money. If you hate the game, don’t give up. It’s wrong to do that. You must work hard a lot to be good.
The pop ups are horrendous
by frogg626 on 2021/06/17 20:44
Recently they added in pop ups which pop up allllll the time and you need to click through each offer. I have 11 at the moment. They only pop up after you’ve invested enough time into the game.

Advertising Spam and Scam
by Toddles88 on 2021/06/15 12:08
The advertisement for this game is not like the game play; this seems to be a ploy by the developers as their other games have the same bait and switch tactic. Furthermore when you log into the game they force you to see their pay to win items and when you close the window it will reopen and force you to look at each available package before letting you play again. If they weren’t so obnoxiously money hungry the game would be enjoyable, but frankly it ruins the player’s experience.
We need some improvements
by kbfixit on 2021/06/13 15:03
Alright, so here is the deal, in tournaments I am getting pitted up with people who have god-tier armor and weapons, it’s a pay to win game, and players like me need some slack because we are getting pummeled by a.I because even if we have max level combat, the best gear available for us, and a bunch of combat points, we STILL get our butts kicked. I am not saying this game is bad, but it REALLY needs some improvements. Because I am not one of those people you expect to blow my life savings on a slightly better experience, so you developers think of ways to make this game NOT pay to win or I ain’t doing this game.
Fantastic game at first !!
by Zechariah B on 2021/06/13 14:22
The rune event really kills any love I had for this game , I enjoy the camaraderie that my mates in the game have built up . As others have said if one really wants to get ahead in this game one needs to stump out cash. I love the bubble and hammer event, the challenge event is special I give this game two stars because it was a fantastic game at first. I am NOT quitting because of my mates, I have quite a bit invested in this game .

by Rotten48 on 2021/06/06 13:05
You are forced to pay for premium and upgrades. If you don’t the stronger players or the ones that spend the most money will take what gold you have. When you are in tournaments you are constantly fighting a lot stronger players.
False Advertising
by Becky Lunch on 2021/06/04 00:24
The ads that made me get this app made it seem like it was puzzles and games to play. This is not the case… I have no clue what is happening in this game, and I cannot find any way to do what the advertisement showed that this app was. It starts with forcing you to do different tasks in a castle, nothing like the advertisements showed. I don’t understand why advertising is drastically different from what this actually is. Attempted to mess around in it for 10 minutes, waste of time. :(
Stupid “Unique Offers” pop ups ruin the game
by FantasticDuck on 2021/06/03 19:41
I used to love this game. Now I can’t login without 4 or 5 pop screens declaring UNIQUE OFFER! trying to get me to spend real money before I can play. And it’s not once a day. It’s EVERY time I log in. I get they want you to spend money on the game but this trend has me to the point it’s causing me to no longer want to play as it’s annoying.
Much to improve
by loincom on 2021/06/03 04:54
Fun game riddled with terrible usability, cumbersome game flows, and a constant barrage of ads to get you to spend money. Tech support is pathetic / none empathetic at best.
Game is a scam
by crice256 on 2021/06/01 15:40
Have been playing this game for a year now and the rune events use to be decent to where you could get several runes by opening 159 chests. I’ve opened 200 chests and have gotten 1 rune. I have 9 that I need. I guess spending $20 on events means you get total garbage for rewards. I really liked the game for a good bit but lately it’s turned into a $$ scam to where they want you to spend hundreds of dollars to play. I’m done after spending money in every event for the past year. My time and my money will be spent elsewhere. Update: I ended up opening 234 chests and wound up with 2 of the 10 runes that I needed. If you guys are going to charge people $20 for an event there should be better results than this for a drop rate. The game is geared for those that spend big money. You will get more money from players if they are able to get what they think they are paying for. With the way it is now for me I’m not spending anymore money or my time playing this game as the last few events I’ve not been able to get the items that the $20 buy in shows you can get. 234 chests and a great deal of my time should have resulted in more than 2 runes. I also tried to contact support but there is no option to leave feedback there on this subject. Bottom line is give people what they pay for and don’t scam them into thinking they are getting something that is unattainable unless they spend big money on each event. I’ve spent hundreds of dollars on this game and you guys just lost a devoted customer due to being too greedy.
Pay to continue
by Genesius2001 on 2021/05/31 11:28
Once you hit about level seventeen, there doesn’t seem to be any way of progressing without paying a lot of money to do it. It was fun while it was lasted, but I’ll probably be deleting it soon.

Ads don’t match the game
by Jimwymr on 2021/05/30 13:28
I played this game for a little while but it requires you to spend too much money to advance. So I shelved it. Recently while playing some other game, I came across ads for it which look nothing like the game I remember, so I reloaded it. It’s still the old game. Why are you putting out ads that look like some new game and yet you still have the same old game?!Back on the shelf you go.
Pay to play
by Mynickname47 on 2021/05/30 11:45
I really love the premise and the game play of this game. It’s just so defeating... Unless you are spending major money, it is very difficult to get ahead in this game. Constantly playing against those who have millions more power is no fun. Never getting any runes in the event is frustrating because you can get to the same level of those with millions more without runes....
Yep, This is a review

Like fallout shelter but better
by Bossam101 on 2021/05/29 02:07
Beginning review I’m new but I see the resemblances. More cartooney and really fun so far. A lot simpler. I haven’t the walls that the other player have mentioned yet. If you havennnt played fallout. You build a team. Of fighters / people stay at home to keep up on things. Fight to make money to build upgrades and advance. There are videos to get extras. In app purchases if you want but I havent needed any yet . Have you played fallout/Skyrim? The game shows your equipment comparisons so you know if what your equipping is beneficial or not. Best feature so far hahah.

Not happy
by fixproplem on 2021/05/26 00:16
I was enjoying the game . I work a full time job. I had a day off was playing arena as much as I could to get my glory. I get the bot test because of Suspicious activity. Which I failed twice because I can not see what the pics are because they put a scribble through the test. I already am half blind and the test is unfair. Now I am suspended for 24 hrs. They have no problem taking my money. Very upset with the game. I was picked on three times today. I want my privileges back. Now not only are you hurting me and my glory competition your hurting my clan. This is very unjust. Fix the problem. Very unhappy player! You really do not deserve the one star.
They hustle you
by Pitbulls are not evil on 2021/05/25 03:39
Constant add pop ups never ending special events to get you to spend money and you never get the items you try to buy, game is nothing but a money trap. You can’t advance unless you spend thousands. I bought this event and nearly 100 collections and not a single item worth anything.
Not the game you saw in ads
by Yellajkts on 2021/05/24 22:15
Another one of these games that advertises one thing on social media. Then when you download it and install it hoping you’re getting what you saw. To only be let mislead with this crappy game. DONT DOWNLOAD! This isn’t the game they advertised.
Great if you have 1k to spend on the game
by Derpingderp0927 on 2021/05/24 18:05
It’s a free game, so obviously they have to have some way to make money. I think paying for resources and speed ups are a good way to do that, but this game has pvp and lets you buy items that just let you win. Starts off fun (I even spent some money on it because I enjoyed it) then it turns into “absolutely no way to win, unless you wanna gimme $100” If you decide to take your time, not pay, grind the levels. Well do they have a solution for you! Instead of letting that work, they just triple the power of whoever you pvp and it makes it pointless. Not to mention OP items are included in the game, where a Player can have a fighter do the following: (effect on weapon) at start of fight, summon 3 golems which cannot be killed for 12 seconds, and take 60% of fighters HP to summon. When golems die, give HP back to fight or Res him if dead. + (separate item) if user drops to critical health, give him immunity shield for 3 seconds, then when it goes away it deals 35k health to everyone in a long range from fighter. (For those unaware 40k health is a soft cap for fighters at this level) UPDATE: since developers reached out and asked, I will give the following ideas for making the game more enjoyable while still rewarding developers. I don’t care about people buying in game gems to speed up building or etc, but for PvP make a ranked system that lets players of similar stats fight. If someone has full legendary, don’t put them against people who don’t. Considering it takes 2-3 days to make one piece of legendary equipment. Offer more cosmetic items, not just equipment which makes you win or do an unreasonable amount of damage. (Like with the castles how it has 30+ cosmetic sets which do nothing but change looks. Not give castle huge buffs) Possibly take away some items like the combo mentioned above which I do not honestly believe can be beaten unless you turn off all artifacts and kill everything within 5 seconds. As for “still rewarding the developers” consider that giving people an easier time in game, leads to more sales. One of the games I love is crush the all because you get a lot of resources to use and can buy more, which gives other bonuses (ie upgrade multiple things or etc). And as much as I understand needing to make money off game development, this game has a price on everything. Want your castle to look nice? $20, want some max tier workers? $5-10. Want to get premium? Monthly $5-$20. Want to have things auto collect? $5-10. There is nothing in this game you cannot just buy, which ruins the experience.
Customer service fail do not play
by AdRock!!! on 2021/05/23 22:08
If you play this game and it feels you are a bot because you are doing well it will suspect you of being an artificial intelligence... apparently humans can’t do well?!?!? They created a Captcha Authenticator with icons that you can’t see clearly through the swirl they place over them which makes it nearly impossible to decipher what’s under the swirl. As a result of failing this test I have been locked out for 1 hour, 24 hours, and 3 days, and for the record my vision is 20/20. I contacted customer support and was responded to my Keith notifying me that ‘Support’ “doesn’t recheck or consider the results of the test” quote from Keith. I simply confirmed that I was a real person and requested my game to be unlocked, easy enough request in my opinion, as an account administrator myself I know how easy this is to do.
Hustle castle problem
by Huntergaming30tiktok on 2021/05/21 01:21

Live’s up to its name...
by BHStudios on 2021/05/19 13:13
This game is addicting and fun. But after a very short time you’re getting hustled... and hustled hard. It’s near impossible to level up without spending a ton of money. I’ve spent more on this game than any other game I’ve ever played in the past decade. PvP battles: very frustrating because you’re not paired up well with other’s at the same level as you. They could be 10 levels higher, better weapons/armor and can never be beaten. And I’ve seen so many that raid my castle at ridiculous levels take so much resources it’s discouraging. What’s the use of even trying? Gems: this is the most greediest game when it comes to gems. They’re too expensive. The developers never reward gems for anything - like if the server goes down for maintenance which is always an inconvenience... nothing. Other games like AFK are very generous with things like these. It keeps the gamers happy and continue to play and spend. I’d say only play this game if you have a decent amount of disposable income... because you’re gonna need it.
Paying to win
by CodPieceHeroine on 2021/05/19 10:22
The pay to win option I think has made this game a lot less enjoyable for me . My husband got me interested and has been guiding me with building my castle . I do enjoy the battles . The camel expedition was not very impressive, possibly because too much hype was made of it and when I actually got to go on one . It was nowhere as great , I loved the last event with the hammers and bubbles I earned quite a bit. The camaraderie built up with friends through this game is great .
In app purchases don’t work
by vgghufffgh on 2021/05/18 18:06
I just paid $20 for diamonds and it took my money, gave me the diamonds then didn’t upgrade my room. Just took the diamonds and money. It’s a scam. I’ve also had someone buy diamonds using my account and the game and Apple refuse to refund me. This game is awful. Please don’t download it. There are so many other way better games.
Unfair
by Da Boz! on 2021/05/16 16:04
Each day I log in I find I’ve been attacked at least five times, loosing 400-500K in coins FROM EACH ATTACK. I check my map and I can barely even earn 100K if I attack other castles, or they’re more powerful than me so I can’t attack them at all. I’ve been trying to save up coins to upgrade my training room FOR MONTHS, but the constant attacks make it impossible...unless I spend money on diamonds to get the coins. I won’t do that, I forgave the issue with being entirely unable to participate in the arena because of this absurdly unbalanced and unfair matching system, but this is unacceptable. Your game is a scam, and unless you plan on fixing the arena AND reimbursing me for the millions of coins I EARNED that I lost because of this ridiculously unbalanced player system, I’m never touching this again.

Add were nothing like the real game which is a knock off version of fallout shelter. For the game to continue while you’re away you have to hire a goblin which takes jewels and that’s one way how they try and try over and over to get you to buy things.
Arena is too hard + other issue
by xxk3990 on 2021/05/12 19:10
Like some other reviewers have been saying, the arena is way too hard. All teams are like 4-5 million above me even though I'm at like 6-7 mil overall. Please make it so you get partnered against other teams similar in threat level. Many other games do this so I don't see why you guys can't. Also unrelated but I just noticed that the Shadow's set is labeled as a tank set and the weapon is a tank weapon but then the armor and armor soul are for an archer. Please either make it a tank set or archer set!
Fix the cash problem please I don’t have any money to able to get throne rooms

Way too tedious...
by rickympls on 2021/05/06 21:38
This game is ALMOST fun, but as a ‘Free’ player, here’s how it goes.... 1) fight battle. 2) move fighters from the barracks to the hospital so they can heal. 3) wait a minute or so while they heal. 4) move fighters from hospital back to barracks. 5) fight next battle. This doesn’t sound so bad, BUT you need to fight lots & lots of battles in order to earn enough gold and materials. It ends up taking way more time than it should, and I just don’t have the patience for all that.
Great game but needs a little update
by AZb's on 2021/05/06 07:21
I love the game and it is very addictive, but everything in the game take a little too long. I am waiting days after days just to upgrade on thing. Then if you want to get another builder it is costing money. Please reduce the time limit, I’m not saying but a lot just a little
Keeps kicking me
by tyopiuks on 2021/05/04 18:27
Ok I love the game so much definitely a good game just gonna say that but here’s the problem I’m at level 14 and my name is um let me check... “Chale Da King” I’m in a clan named God’s Warriors. But enough of that ok when I come in the game it’s fine for like a couple minutes then kicks me out of the game and if I’m in the middle of moving a person to another room or upgrading something it won’t resets when I come in so I have to move them again or upgrade my building again “it doesn’t reset my castle” so it would be really helpful if you can please help me. Thank you for reading this and I hope it’s not too much trouble.
Customer support is one dude sitting in his mom’s trailer
by Jengu33 on 2021/05/04 09:40
The generic response from customer support is nauseating. This game is a joke. Arena is completely useless because there is no even matching system between players and because the little incompetent developer didn’t pass his basic algorithm class.
Fun and cool game
by Eat my wiener on 2021/05/04 02:12
This game is really fun and it’s really cool download this game for free it’s probably the one bestest castle one hit time game so fun

Might aswell download the fallout game if you like the bunker concept and don’t want to be forced to pay money to play longer
Love the game but..
by Pro DJ Fire Az Speedy Flash on 2021/04/30 14:11
So the game is really fun and all but it’s like spend money and you’ll get like for example in the Golden Clover place if you get all the ordinary items then you need to buy the golden clover to get more of the other stuffs so that why I don’t like it that much

No customer loyalty
by Wonks04 on 2021/04/27 12:28
I’ve regretfully spent too much money in this game. Purely by accident when using my Apple Pay card to purchase a gem pack for 60 dollars it was declined saying 120.00 I brought this up to customer service and was asked for screenshots. Don’t bother it’s more a customer disservice!
Pretty Good
by M Sev on 2021/04/24 15:41
All in all it’s a solid game with a lot to do and a lot to work on. The only problem I’ve ever had in the placements for the arena system. Don’t get me wrong it’s frustrating losing, but that’s not the issue. If you do manage to place in the top 3 out of 10. You immediately get thrown against people that are 100 times better than you and you stay there for a bit of time. The game doesn’t make it harder it makes it impossible. I don’t mind losing if I can work my way back up, but if I get punished for placing in the top 3. Why am I not going anywhere when the last 17 arenas I’ve been at the very bottom? With 0 wins out of 5 or I get 1 win out of 5 and the rest is impossible. It’s very frustrating that I can only place 1 out of 30 or 40 arenas and the rest that I don’t place is impossible for me to even scratch the surface. Rewrite the algorithm for the placement in arenas please.
Annoying
by grant ellis remley on 2021/04/24 00:37
It would be better if the actual game was like the nice ads.
Too many ads
by cpalmer406 on 2021/04/20 14:03
When I opened the game it would show me 5 sales they had going on to buy stuff on the game. Game was fun but not that fun, and the ads really take away from the game. I spent a couple bucks on it, but it seemed like it wanted $5 every couple days. Not worth it
Fake
by dav1899 on 2021/04/19 21:18
Fake, like most games. Ad shows a puzzle game which gets you to download it, but the actual game is completely different.
Don’t bother downloading the game and the game useless

I have been stuck on the downloading the game for 5 minutes no progress also saying that is not connected to the internet and the network has been fine the hole day
Unbalanced and unfair
by ahlin571 on 2021/04/15 21:26
I’ve been playing this game for a while now and I’ve reached the conclusion that no matter your progress or what you spend on it you will never be able to be your opponents. The moment you upgrade your characters is the moment you get put into a tougher bracket. It seems the moment you feel like you’re doing good, you were in the exact same spot you were just a couple days ago. The game is incredibly unbalanced and is solely focused on getting you to spend money on in game currency so you can try to get ahead but even when you do that it’s not enough. My recommendation It’s a stay clear of this game until they resolve their issues
Good game needs fix’s
by ToxinFN on 2021/04/08 19:28
At first the game is fun and pretty balanced. It only took a little while to complete wretched land. Then once I progressed a little bit I played some tournaments. At first I got first and second place. Then once my power was about 39,000 and I did a tournament I was against other players with double my power. So at that point I decided to do some story quests and I finally got stuck in the volcano area. There for I decided to try and upgrade my fighter training area to level 4 and it was 150,000 coins. Eventually I just bought a pack to upgrade it. On fixes I think that their should be something to make your enemies in tournaments around +5000 your power or -5000 your power. I also think some things should be cheaper and training time a little shorter. Over all I would recommend it ,but needs change.
Don’t get it twisted it’s pay for play
by Jschexxy on 2021/04/07 20:39
Still fun though if you’re honest with yourself but if you join a good clan then can help make it so you’re not spending much to have fun.
Dwellers
by Nomadic Biker on 2021/04/07 20:11
I am liking everything about this game it just needs the ability to view all dwellers at once just like in the fallout version to make it easier to manage their individual inventories and put them where they need to go
Personally I like it!

Game Is Broken
by Region3A on 2021/03/27 07:26
I started a month ago and got hooked to it. Now, it’s broken... stuck. You’re offering prizes for completion of quests that I can’t even complete because of the enemy balance. Other players that you put on the map are almost all over-powered (I am at 400,000 and almost everyone else is at 3,000,000 to 15,000,000). The arena is severely broken. I’ve sat there for hours waiting for the tournament to start and nothing happens. It is still looking for challengers. And when I do finally play the tournaments, it is also not balanced. Most players are over powered. Out of 15 players in a tournament, I’m almost always in 14th or 15th because it’s me and a couple other players that are between 500,000 and 300,000 while everyone else is 3,000,000 to 15,000,000. Even with pay to play, I can’t win. That’s why it’s broken. Fix this or you’re going to lose me!

I have experienced two bugs when we were upgrading the characters I got two of them training at level 30 they finish the training but they continue to be at level 30 and a little bit before writing this review I watch the video to get rid of 40 minutes on their training and I was scammed out of 10 minutes it was at 44 minutes I watched another video and it was down to 14 minutes I should’ve only had 14 minutes and a couple seconds left and some of the battles don’t make sense how one character can get hit but very little help is actually taken from the for amount of health even though they’re wearing pretty basic gear not like level one or two somewhere in 30s or 40s but still
The game is not as advertised!
by Swole Black on 2021/03/21 13:58
So the developers saw fit to have ethnic diversity on the loading screen; however, during gameplay you don’t see diversity (except for the Hero character). So why is it so hard to have the dwellers in different skin colors to show the same diversity as that in the real world? To show what is on your loading screen? Why is that so difficult? False advertising and it needs to be addressed!
REAL REVIEW FROM FORMER PLAYER - Terrible game, worse customer service
by jhtdhfhhgehhr on 2021/03/17 20:08
This game is a perfect example of “the dark ages of video games.” These developers are only interested in your money for minimal creativity on their part. Additionally, they will punish you just because someone complains about you. Theres no interest in maintaining a reasonable gaming environment. If you want a poorly produced game with the worst group of developers that is only looking to take your money, THIS is your game. These guys are awful, enjoy! Update (for the developers): THE TIME TO “TALK ABOUT IT” WAS BACK WHEN I WAS REACHING OUT TO YOU VIA YOUR IN GAME CUSTOMER SERVICE TICKETS AT WHICH TIME YOU ADVISED THAT I “ONLY REACH OUT FOR REAL ISSUES SO THAT YOU CAN KEEP YOUR CUSTOMER SERVICE AVAILABLE TO DEAL WITH ACTUAL PROBLEMS.” IM SORRY BUY I WOULD THINK THAT BEING MISTREATED BY OTHER PLAYERS IS A SERIOUS PROBLEM...? IM SURE THAT HAD IT BEEN A PROBLEM GETTING MY PAYMENTS TO GO THROUGH YOU WOULD HAVE SNAPPED TO IT NICE AND QUICK TO TAKE CARE OF THAT “MUCH MORE SERIOUS AND REAL PROBLEM”

Can’t restart progress
by GamerAtticus on 2021/03/16 14:41
I want to have a fresh start on Hustle castle, but there is one problem. You can’t. There isn’t a way to reset your progress on the game unlike better games like fallout shelter. I like having a fresh start on games, so if I can’t, it hurts my perception of that game. If only the developers could listen to the consumer.
Fair, Fun, Addicting and Hilarious
by Matt. G on 2018/02/12 21:45
My experience with this game has been great. The prices are pretty fair and everyday you can earn rewards so it doesn’t seem impossible to craft items, rooms and your troops. It’s also pretty fair that if someone actually pays for items that they have an advantage over someone who doesn’t. I find it silly when people say it’s not fair. I have made a few purchases and they were worth it. Also very hilarious! I love how the developers didn’t take the characters to dark and serious but not too silly either as if I was playing a kids game. The social feed makes me laugh all the time, so I look forward to progressing through the game and seeing what they have to say. And even the subtle intricate faces and miscellaneous things the characters do are genius. I’ve been playing this for a few months but what made me write this review was the new “Spring Festival” Update. I was fighting the dragon’s warriors and saw two Pandas fighting in the air and could not stop laughing. Overall Hustle Castle is my favorite game.
Tournaments are rigged
by hairinyosoup on 2020/06/20 19:12
The game can be addictive and is enjoyable for a while, but like everyone else has mentioned, you eventually reach a wall where you absolutely have to spend money to compete or progress in the story. Arena tournaments are the most notorious for this. I’m almost always the weakest army in the tournament, sometimes getting matched up with other players who are three or four times my strength. Usually I have no chance which is no fun, and fun is the point of playing. I grind on this game so much. Been playing daily for over a year now and haven’t won a tournament or came even close to it after maybe the first week or so of playing. You need five star players to compete, and you can watch ads to get diamonds to upgrade your characters but the ads only give you 5 diamonds per ad with a limit of how many you can watch at a time. You can get more in the portal when it’s open but it’s unlikely you’ll get more than 100 before the portal shuts. You need 2,000 diamonds to get your character to 5 stars. That’s on top of the diamonds you’ve likely spent to get them from three stars to a four. Please update to where the tournaments are more even. Matching me with several players in a tournament that are over A MILLION squad points higher than my own is dumb and unfair. If as many people play this game as you all claim, the grouping certainly can’t come from a lack of online players. I know this company wants to make money, but gee-wiz. Cut us some slack.
Slow going
by losinginterestfast on 2019/09/24 15:36
First of all, it’s not as exciting as they make it out to be in the advertising, a bit boring compared to the advertising. Some of the side events aren’t even playable unless you spend money on it due to being under powered. The arena for example, with all your stats maxed out and the best weapons and armor you can find, a couple weeks into the game you’ll find yourself being the weakest person on the list unable to get through one round. Just happens you have to beat a certain number of players for the achievement, good luck beating one if your lucky because they’ll match you to players who spend money ( which is probably deliberate to inspire you to spend ). I’ve been playing for over a year and at this point it’s just unrewarding repetition. Clear the lands, watch a ton of advertisements, some of them lock up the game and cause you to restart. Game support is unresponsive regarding the issue. My advice on many of these games in the App Store, buy a console if you don’t have one already, play console games. Once in a while you may feel compelled to buy an add on but the console games are far less money and you won’t spend a year watching timers count down. A huge problem, pretty much every time you reach another realm it can take months to develop your fighters to a strength in which they can even start completing the fighting stages, then you whip through the realm and repeat the whole process. These negative factors make the game pretty boring.
Has lots of potential, but...
by manchebeech on 2019/10/30 09:33
When I first started playing this game I would give it 5 stars. Which by the way is when they ask you to rate the game. Which is probably why this has so many good reviews. As I played more, my rating slowing dwindled because I realized how much time and money and I’m talking hundreds upon hundreds of dollars, it takes to get anywhere in this game. When gearing your warriors, the game is broken when trying to get legendary items. The only efficient way of getting them is by participating in this broken system they have called Arena. For everything other than than arena. This game utilizes a “squad” power which basically tells you how strong your team is. Everything from what I can see is based around it EXCEPT for the arena. its based on the average level of of your squad 0-100. So what happens is I get paired with teams who have 3 to 4 times my squad power who are the same lvl as I am, they hit me three times and I’m dead. Not fun at all and it’s a complete waste of time. If they based it around squad power instead, I would at least have a chance. The devs know this has been an issue since the inception of it but they refuse to do anything about it. They say they are working ok fixing it but don’t. If that’s the case give us alternative methods of obtaining legendary items efficiently and not force me to spend ridiculous amounts of money to obtain them. 2 stars for this game.
Pay to play all the way
by Cart man1313 on 2018/11/10 07:03
Good game at first, then you find yourself stuck big time unless you pay a lot. At first your against other new players and you can actually compete in the arena which is critical for rewards. But eventually you hit a massive roadblock where all the players have all legendary gear and you just get slaughtered over and over unless you spend big and I mean big on getting legendary gear. Also as you level up your throne room and castle level they keep raising the bar ie raid costs, event costs, upgrade times, and other aspects become unobtainable. I’ll be deleting the game after this as my entire clan is stuck loosing arena battles to people with all legendary gear and unable to improve due to horrific time and resource requirements. It really is not worth playing unless your ready to drop an easy hundred bucks maybe more. They bait you initially with special offers, but the gear you may buy becomes obsolete quickly along with other upgrades. You actually have to throw matches just to stay at a manageable level it’s pathetic. I give two stars for good initial gameplay but after a month or so it’s hands down the most money grubbing game I’ve played. I hope people read this and don’t play because I think they feed off new players enjoying the game until the end date where you realize you been ripped off hard. Boooooo.
P2W
by Okoleen on 2020/03/29 01:25
I’d been playing for a week or so before deciding to nix this game from my library. Achievements, quests, and story line aside, this game has an awful amount of pay to win, arena is a most notable example considering its one of the few you’re able to experience early on, and probably for the reason of getting you to pay for those glamorous items these other players have, the devs have the hots for showing off what you can get for a quick buck in their pocket. For example, I began and ended during the Phoenix event, and finding that people who had a lower combat level than I have a seamless trait to destroy my entire team. It may have been poor strategizing but I couldn’t find but one instance of my having a lower power level being advantageous, or at least better suited to beat my opponent, and of course I’d outfit myself with items that had the best stats I could RNG from these loot crates/chests. Now for the advertisement, it’s poor and most of the time irrelevant. What inspired me to play this game was this bridge building game mode that I could find no resemblance of in the game, I found it intriguing yet unfounded and no trace of that game mode being present in the app itself. My advice, don’t invest in this game, there’ll always be someone whose spent more than you; don’t put time into this that could have been spent elsewhere, and elsewhere would be much more beneficial if not profitable than this.
Get your games straight
by jonh goodman on 2020/01/29 14:01
First and foremost I do enjoy the game I seriously do however the event were you get to spin and use the 100 snowflakes to spin and see what kind of prize you get is completely not worth it, it’s simply ment for you to think you have a chance to win something big and trust I have checked with my alliance members and none of them have posted any big wins that’s insane !! You have a great app why do push people away by making these stupid excuses for a great game?? Why!!!! We are loyal customer and you by far treating this like this nothing also the time it takes to get support from you is almost impossible seriously a reply to my iCloud would be nice. By the this reminds me of the 2accounts I have lost so far! YES YES YES 2 !!! 2 flipping accounts on this one device. What is the point of linking it with Game Center if it won’t remember you if the app was deleted by accident or cleared ? My account is still the same with Game Center so was my data not saved or was this just left behind I do make purchases with my games and I do want to buy some stuff here but how can feel secure that if I lose my app or phone again I will also get the investment I put into the game back well because I won’t that’s why. GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER.
Fallout Shelter Clone
by BigChiefton on 2018/05/20 08:14
Great game, I just wish I didn’t get rekt by all the pay to win plebs. As a game designer myself, I know there are ways to make money on a free to play game, pay to win has to be the sleaziest way of doing it. It reeks of laziness and poor business ethics, I will continue playing this game because I genuinely enjoy it and if you’re looking for a game that’s highly addictive and don’t mind grinding for days give this one a try. All things considered, it’s a great game concept, it’s easy to play, has a goofy storyline, it’s pay to win AF, and it’s highly addictive . . . if you’re into Fallout Shelter clones. Please studio nords or my com if you’re reading this consider reworking the pay to win system it’s just not fair or competitive. Yes it’s fun but I have 46 tournament tickets because I can’t win any of my tournaments against all the people that bought their legendary gear so why should I even bother with doing tournaments. Why can’t you just be happy with your $5 a month from premium players? At least let me buy those legendary item pieces with diamonds. So far the only thing in this game that seems fair is the portals and even then only the people that have been playing the longest and buying the best gear can truly benefit from that.
Fun, but it’ll cost ya
by Danno210 on 2018/03/05 03:25
I’m generally ok with pay to play if the game is honest and fair, but after playing for a couple months now it’s become clear to me that their AI is designed to restrict your castle and team’s abilities once you’ve gone about 7-10 days without paying for something. Overnight it will go from where you’re doing decent, even quite well, then the next day you get destroyed by everyone you come across, even PVE, PVP, and tournaments - all of it just gets to where you obviously cannot achieve anything unless you cough up even more money. Even purposefully allowing your team to get destroyed over and over to lower your ranking dramatically [which should cause the AI to adjust and put you up against more evenly-matched foes] has no effect at all. I mean zero. I’d say I’ve spent about $60 on this game and frankly that’s way more than enough for a “free to play” game so since I’ve learned it’s going to put the screws to me about 7-10 days after my last cash purchase in the game, I can not recommend this game to anyone no matter how much fun it is - which is sad because it’s a really fun game. Just keep your wallet open and your cash endlessly flowing if you want to continue to get anywhere - the AI will make sure you do. And that’s not acceptable.
Waist of money
by Dont go !!!! on 2018/06/28 05:02
I download the game and was enjoying trying to build up a team but no matter what you do or how powerful u get ur team ull get beat by someone half the strength. And they have one armor “skeleton armor” thats impossible to get and totally one sided that u kill ur opponent and it resurrects two skeletons and u kill them and the opponent again and itll resurrect 2 more skeletons and repeat even though ur army is twice the strength. They do this to get you to spend more and more money and one week upl be doing good beating everyone and then the next week u cant beat anyone to get you to spend more. Sadly ive spent hundreds on this game and its just set up so you keep spending in hope that eventually youll be able to start winning but take it from me that wont happen cause they just want your money and with the skeleton armor no matter how weak the opponent is you loose. Ive contacted the support team about it and they dont do anything and if u email them again they just close ur ticket and ignore you. Its to bad cause if it wasnt about just getting ur money and setting it up to loose no matter how strong you are it would prob be a good game but if you dont wanna throw ur money away just to be frustrated and not get anywhere no matter how much you spend i wouldnt even bother with this game.
Strong on PTW
by sailor_0703 on 2018/01/21 07:51
This one is fun and entertaining, but could be better. Not even out of the "tutorial" stages yet, and I already can see how it is very strongly a pay-to-win type game. What's worse, it is one that requires a subscription for its premium benefits(so not a one-time purchase for premium benefits, but rather a monthly payment). Greedy developers. The subscription does NOT, however, give you all the good stuff. A subscription does not even give you any extra in-game currency(meaning diamonds). Furthermore, the matching system for this game is WAY out of wack. Not only does it almost always put me up against players WAY stronger than me, but even when other players seem to be weaker than, I still will often lose. The battles are extremely unpredictable. That was before. Now, they have created a whole new battle "Arena," where you go up against other players, to fight them for prizes. Only once again, I am put up against players with "squad power" all more than mine, and most of the players have more than twice my own "squad power." The battles are also, once again, extremely unpredictable. I find it impossible to beat ANYONE I'm put up against in the Arena. Several MAJOR adjustments are needed in this game.
Sick of dealing with it!!!
by gamergirldee on 2020/03/16 17:28
First off I’ve been playing this game for a yr now and I have been stuck in the same position forever! This is why. There is absolutely no reason a person with 3 million squad power should be attacking somebody with only 750 thousand squad power and taking 3 days worth of loot! Clearly I could never win revenge against this person! Every time I get so close to being able to upgrade something people in the millions come and attack me and take everything! And TONS of points but when I attack somebody in the 500 thousands sometimes I don’t even get any points? This game should have leagues were certain groups can only attack people in their squad power range! There’s no reason for any of this besides complete unfairness! And don’t even get me started on the tournaments.. Completely out of wack. Sometimes I get lucky enough to even able to go up against 1-2 people without others being WAY higher than me. I’m so sick of this game being money drivin. It seems the only way I’m going to progress is if I spend my real money and that’s just not going to happen. When I first started playing I bought premium and few diamonds and that’s IT! The game is just no longer fun to me anymore and stresses me out more than anything!
Response to developers.
by Gottti79 on 2020/10/17 00:41
So I was asked for my input to make the game better. Ok. Let’s start with the problems. Any other game you play if you focus you can upgrade at a decent pace. Unlike here you get a building to level 4-5 and you’re taking anywhere from a day to two days to upgrade. For low level buildings? Seriously? So now you want for a player with a competitive nature to spend $10 for 1100 gems that will not satisfy an upgrade to a level 3-4 building. Option buy a $20 and get 2500 gems. Oh wait you want to have extra builders to upgrade faster well you have to buy that too. While you’re at it here are a dog and cat you can buy that do absolutely nothing. So now if you want to rush you “forcefully” have to spend money. Not to mention if you go into a tournament you’re not placed in your certain power level you’re fighting people with higher your level, higher your stats and higher hero’s. Just as fun as a hole in the head. You guys have algorithms that can pick up if a character is 4 stars and offer packs to upgrade them but you really have to ask a player “talk to us so we can improve the game” what a joke. This game has been out how long? (Deinstalled) I can buy a game from Xbox or PlayStation and get more excitement.

I’m really into the build and manage a neighborhood-type games, and usually the idea is good but in practice it’s clunky and relies too heavily on timed energy or in-app purchases. This game has enough going on that if you’re waiting on one task, you have a few more to do in the meantime. and it’s completely playable without spending any money. and it’s legitimately fun, I like the level of customization it provides. BUT!!! almost every time I watch an ad in exchange for a game gift (resources, unlocking one of the ad-fueled chests, etc) it’ll play the entire ad and then freeze and force me to restart, losing the reward, or just go back to the main screen like normal yet still not dole out the reward. it’s super annoying and is an unnecessary handicap! and I can’t access the chest unlocked with ads because they refuse to log! please fix this :(
Really unfortunate
by Tate 66 whoop on 2020/12/17 02:18
Initially when I downloaded this game, it was on a whim. It looked fun, and don’t get me wrong... it was.. at first. With games like this there seems to be a pattern; the game is fair up until about mid-way in. After that, you can really start to see how greedy it’s creators actually are, and how little they care about their players. The unfortunate thing is though... that these devs, along with all others who share in this sense of greed, don’t seem to understand that behavior like this will only serve to spread poor reputation - which in the long run means that despite starting off strong, their creation will eventually end bitterly once people realize how low grade their games progression system really is. If only they understood that valuing their customers and putting effort into creating a game EVERYONE could enjoy would result in a widely loved, popular game with an indefinite lifespan that would ultimately bring in MORE income and funding then a game run by greed ever could. The best games in the world are where they are because they listen to what their players think, and care about their enjoyment. Maybe take a lesson from them and stop trying to fill your pockets with cash as fast as possible? You’re just screwing yourselves over in the end.
Recent update loot chests are horrible
by Blackholehog on 2018/03/04 20:01
Awesome game, I check in to collect and build resources multiple times a day in order to make sure I'm giving myself (f2p) the best chance I have against p2p, the devs have made this game manageable to play for free unlike some other games with in-app purchases. One downer though, RECENT UPDATE LOOT CHESTS ARE HORRIBLE. Chests from fighting off invasions used to give decent rewards such as mid-level cooking, alchemist, woodworking treasury, mining an sometimes fighter gear as well as coins and wood usually. I fought off 10 invasions earlier and 8 out of the 10 basic loot chests gave out only coins. The reason I do the invasions is to get uncommon gear through loot chests to be able to craft rare and eventually epic weapons/armor. If the devs are going to start being greedy with what they allow loot chests to provide I will cease to continue playing this game. P2p don't need even more of an advantage against f2p, they can already be much lower levels than you and come to your castle and defeat you. Other than that I do really enjoy this game and hope this issue can be resolved
General, Events, and PVP
by hkkhwidveual on 2020/01/31 01:34
Firstly, the game is enjoyable and has a lot of potential to be great. There are however a few issues that I have been running into. These issues are annoying enough to make me want to delete the game. In the PVP arena, I believe that I have only had a hand full of matches that were fairly ranked since I’ve started playing. Currently I’m around 200k power rating and I’m being placed against opponents that are over 2.5 times mine. Which would not be so terrible if it didn’t take over 5 mins to complete one arena. The amount of time it take and the matchmaking is ridiculous. Now this winter event that is taking place currently. I’ve put thousands of gems and dozens of free spins with nothing really to show for it. Even had the same exact reward (like a poison spell) over and over again. I don’t just mean getting it the majority of the time. I’m talking about spinning three times and each spin was the same reward. In my opinion it’s horrible odds and infuriating, especially using gems. As a side note, the Angry Birds advertisement needs to be fixed. After watching it kicks me out of the game and locks me from watching another video to get the reward.
They only want money!!
by Derm1121 on 2019/11/10 00:53
I have had this app for a while now and the times I’ve had problems, the developers acted very uninterested in fixing them. I spent $10 on in-app purchases because I enjoyed it so much at first and apparently once they find out you will spend money, they make it almost impossible to move on in the game without doing so. I have set up another game on a different device to see if this is actually the case and that game has moved forward faster and further than the one I spent money on. My castle is constantly up for attack so I can’t save any resources to upgrade it without purchasing diamonds. On the other device, it’s only vulnerable once in a great while. Also, the algorithm used for the tournaments is severely flawed. I have not been able to even place in a tournament in a long time. They fail to address the problem and continue to state that it is working just fine. Once again, on the other device, I have placed first in quite a few tournaments. I wish they would make an honest game where you weren’t forced to make a purchase after finding out you WILL spend money. Shame, I would’ve considered this one of the beat games on the market if they didn’t act like crooks.
Not worth your time
by Wielder13 on 2019/05/14 15:33
Imagine a game with a great concept, then have it structured very badly, and you get this. It’s starts off smooth and fun, but by the end of the first couple of chapters, the grind sets in. And the pay to play really comes to the forefront. Want to grind to get rare items, sure, you can do that, but it won’t help. The game uses an adjusted development to try and keep you on equal footing with other players, BUT, if they pay, they get a decidedly unfair advantage. I played this for sometime, and ran into many in game play issues. Resources become more and more exponentially off balance the further you develop. Making game play harder, and money more important. I’m all for paying games to help the ones I enjoy, but this one is pointless. Nothing is permanent. Rare artifact? Useless the moment you level up the throne and move up to the next tier. Premium account? Not really a thing. It’s temporary at best. The one in game bug I had involving credits was resolved fairly quickly, and that is about the only good thing I can say about this game. Sorry folks, don’t bother with this one. Much better clones of this style of game are out there. Also, don’t be fooled by the rating... I’ve seen negative reviews vanish from this site.
Support is a joke. It’s all about $.
by Xalerion on 2018/12/14 18:40
Support will often ignore your question and provide a cookie cutter unrelated answer and close the ticket. Ask for clarification? You get a cookie cutter response saying it was already answered and you get ignored. Watch ads, perform a transaction, but didn’t get what you were supposed to? Too bad. Want to participate in an event but it pairs you up against someone several tiers above you at twice the power level (260k more power) where it is impossible to defeat one of their people much less all 5 or 6? Too bad. But... you can spend money to buy diamonds to speed up the building of your barracks, trainer fighting room, leveling your fighter levels, building the three crafting buildings, speeding up the crafting of the 5 items for each of your people, and then you might be on equal ground where you have a chance of winning (until you get paired up against someone insurmountable again and have to shell out more if you want to participate in the “free” event). Don’t waste your time. That is how it is intended to work per the support who say they consulted with the developers who agree. They don’t care. Don’t give them your time or money.
Repetitive, misleading game trailer
by BobCrabmm on 2020/02/01 06:02
Yeah, the interesting and fun looking games shown in the pop/up trailer which enticed me to play the game any in the game. Also, be prepared to spend enough for a brand new PlayStation to beat this thing. There is no way to getting ahead is to constantly buy weapons, super wizards, whatever. Wanna upgrade a room that is essential to move up in the game? That will take 4 days(real time). Just use some magic diamonds to speed it up! Not enough diamonds? Enough diamonds to get it built on time are “on a special deal! Only $4.99. Now just repeat this for infinity and you can be up there with the other clowns who spent an incredible amount of cash to play a game which is basically an infinite maintenance game like the sims or any other iteration skinned as theme park owners, pirates, taco stand entrepreneurs, zombie whatever’s blah blah blah.. Take the time and money and read a mind bending book(or 20), buy a guitar, learn it, save up for a car, learn to juggle, get a girl/boyfriend and have fun sex and fall in love, or, aim low and at the very least just buy a nice video game system and a few games instead of playing this crumby excuse for throwing time and money in the trash.
Great game
by PowerPugh88 on 2019/07/19 22:28
This game is very fun to play. It has just the right amount of details and side missions without getting too lost in what this game was all about. I have been playing since NOV 18 and I am only a lvl 33. You will have to spend a big huge amount of money or you will have to spend a huge amount of time to go to the top of the leader boards. The equipment is general very random and has a good chance of getting better stuff if you are willing to spend money on buying diamonds to open chests to get them. If I had to make any adjustments, it would be to add some type of armor or weapon upgrade feature. Or if you end up getting over your level items, having a feature to drop the level of that item to your current level. I also have a problem with there not being any black people or other ethnic groups in the game. There is a black guy in the opening screen but not in the game. It would be a lot cooler if there were mixed races.
Pretty Good
by M Sev on 2021/04/24 15:41
All in all it’s a solid game with a lot to do and a lot to work on. The only problem I’ve ever had in the placements for the arena system. Don’t get me wrong it’s frustrating losing, but that’s not the issue. If you do manage to place in the top 3 out of 10. You immediately get thrown against people that are 100 times better than you and you stay there for a bit of time. The game doesn’t make it harder it makes it impossible. I don’t mind losing if I can work my way back up, but if I get punished for placing in the top 3. Why am I not going anywhere when the last 17 arenas I’ve been at the very bottom? With 0 wins out of 5 or I get 1 win out of 5 and the rest is impossible. It’s very frustrating that I can only place 1 out of 30 or 40 arenas and the rest that I don’t place is impossible for me to even scratch the surface. Rewrite the algorithm for the placement in arenas please.
Good in the beginning...
by drock001 on 2019/03/28 17:48
When starting the game it’s fun.. and it’s equal.. then as you get higher up it becomes almost distorted in the way that you can seemingly attack players that are equal or lower skill level and always seem to lose... its almost as if they want you to spend money so you can buy more or better equipment so you can beat the players you are already significantly ahead of skill level wise... and then still lose to the people who are higher then you.. been playing for about 3 months and loved it until I have gotten to this point.. when complaining about how it doesn’t seem right... they respond with.. we can’t give strategic information out.. so I decided to change all strategies and equipment and what do you know.. same outcome. Really enjoyed the game but obviously at this point it’s quite frustrating since I can’t beat the people above me who are most likely bots and also can’t beat the people who are below me unless I pay to get better equipment. Anyways anyone who plays this game I wish you luck! Try not to get to irritated with it! -Derek
Extremely slowly progressive game, typical pay to win
by Mayham80 on 2019/01/26 15:57
First the good points, the graphics and gameplay action is good. The potential for being a great game is there but not as of now. Now the bad points, typical pay to win. The upgrades are extremely slow and can last days unless you spend diamonds to build instantly which requires a lot of money, to get good items requires real money or a lot of diamonds and the items you do get are always for mages. In game fighting is set at 1x speed and can not be sped up unless you purchase premium biweekly or monthly package (in-game fighting speed should always be changeable in standard game play!). All resources very slow to gain and can also pay to increase. Customer support very unhelpful, won’t admit or help when reporting glitches. Unless you plan on playing this game for years or paying ridiculous amounts of money just to be strong enough to keep up with other players, really don’t recommend. Plenty of other games out there that benefit non paying players, more evenly.
Unique “City Builder” Management Sim
by Lord Travis on 2018/10/07 16:02
There are a ton of stupid city building games in the vein of clash of clans that are all clones with little to offer the genre. Hustle Castle is something different for a change! Each production room of your castle needs to be manned by a villager that you either rescue or create through couples in the living room (G rated baby magic). Those villagers each have stats that can be modified with items, so there’s some strategy in determining who should be a warrior, treasurer, food producer, scientist, etc... It has goofy characters and art similar to Family Guy. I’ve played about a week and haven’t felt disappointed. There is a competitive pvp mode that I am sure paid players have an advantage, but you can jump right into joining a clan and get assistance with little things and learn the game. I cannot give 5 stars because there’s no such thing as a perfect game. But otherwise decent fun and unique take.
Money pit
by Clire111 on 2020/09/05 04:10
The last event they had was $20 for a pass for the *chance* to spend diamonds to win prizes. Diamonds also cost money. In the past buying the pass and grinding in the game 10-12 hours of game play per day would get you all of the items but not for this last event. Huuuge waste of money even putting the $20 in to unlock some rewards. Some of the rewards for this event was the chance to spend more money. I also had frequent issues in gem bay where my fighters would all make it to the next round and when I was taken out to the open queue my fighters were dead even though they were clearly not. When this was brought up the mods told me it was a glitch on my end and not a system error at all which also lost my points toward the event. Waste of time and money, they are losing players very quickly. Not to mention that there are tons of bots in the game and it is almost impossible to set up a good squad for arena anymore. I used to have a very good set up and would more often than not place top 3 now I’m lucky to win a battle or 2 per tournament.
Need money to win
by BEER CHICK on 2019/02/05 19:48
This is the time of year when suicide rates are high. The stress from the holidays still linger, while the added stress of a new year makes it even worse. I am writing to you because of the fragile state that I am in, I am pleading for you to understand my plight! Suicide is an epidemic in the United States, there have been many this month in my town alone. What I don’t think gaming companies, like yours, understand is that people like me turn to you for help. We turn to our gaming systems to cope with the failures of real life, in order to find something that boosts our confidence and self worth. Playing this game has been making me depressed and feel inadequate lately. I have tried asking for your help with why the game is like this but I received a blanket statement response about the arena matches. And my questions were left unanswered. What my point is here is that you are ruining the point of these games. These games are supposed to pass the time with fun and a bit of challenge for thrill seekers. It isn’t supposed to leave you defeated and hopeless. I hope someone cares..
Pay to play
by Avid Warrior on 2020/09/15 07:20
It’s fun when you start but as you progress you’ll need to spend money to advance enough to complete. It’s definitely a pay to play scam game. They promise big prizes in their special events they require money buy-in’s to win anything decent but use terms like “you might get” to justify why you paid into an event but didn’t get the prizes they offered unless you spend more money to buy extra chest well beyond the quests they give you. When you ask questions to customer support they send you vague generic answers that don’t help at all. Their battle matching is terrible and you’ll end up in battles with teams 10x your strength in arena battles which slows progress down. The game is designed to excite you at the beginning but as you start to get further along it will just push you into needing to add more money to get you a little further. As you progress the game will take longer to get anywhere and will become frustrating. If you’re not ready to waste money on a game I recommend searching for a different game to play. This ones a money pit scam
From 0 to ALOT...
by Immortality_101 on 2019/04/16 12:33
Hustle castle is fun and pretty easy at first, but after leveling up your throne room a few times the price of things SKYROCKET! This caught me very of guard, and is now really annoying. I have all my troops as level 20 fighting, but then I start getting better weapons and I can’t afford to upgrade my training room! And to upgrade it, I need to upgrade gold storage, which and 30,000 gold. The gold production in my castle is 👎👎👎. And guess what, I can afford to upgrade that either. Another problem I’ve noticed was that sometimes if I watch an ad, I don’t get any reward, and when I click on it all it says is “waiting for ad network to respond”. This mixes with another problem of the price of battles. After a bit, the apples needed to do a battle is in the thousands! This is just a few annoying problems, but it’s still a fun game.
Fun to a point
by kdmcE on 2021/07/23 14:19
Fun game, I really enjoy it. I am leader of a clan and that is where my major frustration comes in. If you find a player you would like to get in your clan, there is no way to contact them. Want to talk to one person in the clan, have to do it publicly in clan chat, as there is no other way to talk. Game needs to give players a mail system that allows us to privately talk to other players like other games do. I can’t ask people questions as by the time they come online, it may be lost in chat many messages above. If you could message them, they would be able to see it and respond more easily. Recruiting would be easier also, and warning players about to be kicked would stop any embarrassment at being called out publicly. Other than that, events are fun with good rewards, matchups are part of the strategy it seems,and sometimes it works other times you are pitted against monsters and there is no way to win.
Growing to despise the game
by Blake1140 on 2020/03/31 06:31
At first I loved the game, but as time went on I learned that you can only progress so long until you have to start spending real money to continue growing stronger. You will be unable to go far in events, become a strong player, or even properly participate in the game without spending hundreds of dollars. If you enjoy spending your hard earned money on real things, this is not the game for you, avoid it before you get committed and tempted to waste cash. Besides being a pay to win game without saying so in the description (come on game developers, don’t scam people like that), it is also an overall frustrating experience. In the Arena you will be matched with people far stronger then you most of the time, you won’t get to the end of the gem bay without using all your diamonds, and you won’t be able to play for very long at a time because you don’t get many resources unless you, yes. Spend real money. I look forward to the day when we can play games without our financial situation being relevant to our success in the virtual world.
Pay to play or find your fun elsewhere
by LandSeaCow on 2019/03/21 18:13
As other reviewers have said, this is a pretty solid game to begin with... but as it progresses, you NEED to shell out money in order to stay competitive with online features (other players). The game consistently pits you against other players with similar levels, not similar power levels, which means you’ll soon find that tournaments, raiding other castles clan battles & additional features/levels are next to impossible to even attempt to be mediocre at, b/c you’ll be way outmatched by those who don’t mind the extra hit to their wallet (lucky them). So you’ll have to grind a lot, and I mean A LOT, to get the resources and rewards necessary to power up your team b/c your rewards are based off your performance. Low performance (i.e. low power score) = low rewards (i.e. staying with a low power score) Wish this game focused more on micro transactions being a way to enhance the game for those willing to pay more, rather than micro transactions as a prerequisite to enjoy the whole game.
Hmmmm
by Zequeth on 2018/04/22 18:42
This is a relatively fun game by itself good challenge. Decent story. However it is definitely a pay to play & pay to win type of game. At the beginning it seemed relatively easy to understand even children can play it, however when you start leveling the missions and players get progressively harder and they game almost forces you to pay money to get any kind of advantage. or to just be on equal footing. There is limited space in the castle so one cannot really build there dream castle in my opinion. If you have a child playing this game make sure you pay attention because if they have your credit card you may be getting some surprise charges to it LOL. But again the story is half decent and has some funny moments so that is why gave it a middle score. If I was not so much a pay to play and pay to win type game I would’ve given it a five. If you want a game similar to this I would recommend fall out shelter it is a older game but just as fun
Balance
by Teura Nahoko on 2020/12/04 15:31
The game is so off balance, you want to just move on. No point in playing if you reach a point where you are attacked by players many times your level, and they take 30% or more. It should be closer to fighting within the level your at. To much is given to players are willing spend. You have to have both non-paying and paying. It’s not going be paying players that draw in more players, it’s non-paying that will. And their going spread to other players if the game is worth the time.. spread little honey and you will attract more bees. You will make money, someone will always will pay. If you make the game enjoyable for non-paying players you find in time you get them to spend as well. Way is now, get only those eager to spend and not the true players. Wish there way to delete the account, for my castle will be farmed for resources regardless if I delete the game, and this game requires you spend money if you want to advance your people. This game is one you should avoid and for what you get if spend money it’s not worth it.
Love it but starting to resent it
by Watching_the_world_go_by on 2020/01/21 21:37
This is a great game......up to a point. They get you hooked building your castle and spending so much time investing into developing your people and castle....it is a grind but one you enjoy. Then it gets to a point that unless you spend money....your progress grinds to a halt. But you feel compelled to buy resources because of your time investment. You’re constantly being invaded by people who have purchased those resources, and beaten. It becomes a game based on what you’re willing to spend vs your skill and strategy. You can easily become successful if you purchase the resources but if not....the grind no longer becomes fun and game becomes monotonous and boring because of lack of progress and the days it takes for building to be completed......but if you just purchase those diamonds to get things done faster it’s great! (Sigh) .......and that’s the part that makes me no longer want to play. Don’t like feeling manipulated.
In app purchases
by nathgogg on 2018/08/18 22:22
I really enjoy this game and decided I would purchase a rather large amount of diamonds to progress with my castle. I never received my diamonds and my credit card was charged. I immediately contacted the app to create a ticket for my issue and because there was only a generic ROBO type response, I created a second ticket for the same issue. One ticket was closed due to the fact I had created 2 tickets ( in a rather timely manner) and not even a single response to any of my comments on the original ticket. If anyone else is having an issue with in app purchases, Apple was able to refund account and resolve my issue immediately. This is just bad customer service on part of the developers of the app. I followed all directions needed for them to resolve my issue and was even willing for them to just dump my diamonds into my app. Developers please fix whatever bug might do this to another customer and please make sure that issues are being resolved promptly !!
Fun game BUT.....
by Bill497 on 2018/11/28 22:11
I’m going to start this review out on a positive note and say that I have really enjoyed playing this game! I have been able to meet plenty of people that just want to have fun with the game as well which has been great. But that being said if you are going to play the game don’t go above throne room 7. The reason for this is because once you get passed that level you will and I mean will have to pay to play (at least if you want to stay competitive). I don’t mind spending the occasional 20 here and there on the game but I don’t want to spend 50 or more every week to have fun with the game. I also don’t like the way they set up the arena, when I am in there the next closest person to me is at least 150k more powerful than I am ps I am TR8 currently which is why I said stay at 7. Maybe if they can fix this then the game could be a bit more fun but until that time stay low power and just sit back and relax at 7.
Money grabber
by Jedi511 on 2018/08/18 10:59
There is no shame with these developers, the game is free to play but the last 5 updates added in features that cost diamonds which is money in the game and although you are rewarded 1 diamond here and 4 there the majority of anything good costs thousands of diamonds pvp and pve match making is extremely flawed, where you don’t stand a chance unless you spend money. They have special events and awards but those all cost money, they try to hype it up but saying you might get a pet from a chest but the pet is totally useless and does nothing what so ever. The latest update is changing the way your game looks but yup more diamonds more money, and if you do pay your cash you are competing with thousands of others who have spent thousands...the game is fun to play, free to play to win you gotta pay...and the developers just give you cut and paste dry answers with any questions... all in all this game is nothing more than a costly wallet draining time losing distraction that’s not worth the effort or the time. Avoid at all costs or it will cost you.
They try to make harder players job to spent more
by DarkTurks on 2020/12/13 20:18
They release the Clan territory after 2 years and after first week, they start messing up with it. First of all, low tr level players are punished pretty bad. They cannot get fair coins compare to higher lvl players. I am talking about 1% of high lvl players. They just want you lvl up fast then spent real money to catch up with others. Second part they put some useful clan building such as hunter neighborhood. First of all, clans, admins have the control who will use it. It is totally fine but then they also put a cool down time on it. Most of players spend 3-4 hours of their time in a day to play the game and they have to wait to use this benefit. Especially local clans will have huge problem. Because people try to play this game after work and all clan members will try to play on the same time. Developers only think about money and not consider players need. If you are rich and want to spent your time, start this game, otherwise, find something else that provides better service.
Please read this suggestion!
by Yamaceles Shipper on 2020/08/18 06:24
I’ve looked through the reviews and it gets worse, you should really add an update on the arena. It’s good and all but it's annoying that most of the time you’ll get paired up with squads more stronger than you, one time I was in a tournament where almost every single player had a squad power of 100,000+ and you know what’s worse? I only had the squad power of 97,000+ I barely won any matches and most of the players had beaten me with ease, I have a suggestion where you could have choose how much squad power do you want your opponents to be, or if you could just check the amount of power the player (as in you) has and pair them with opponents of a fair amount. Like seriously! You’d almost have to pay to win in-order to win most tournaments and it’s frustrating to most newbies and players who’ve been playing for months. In the conclusion of this review/rating; PLEASE MAKE THE TOURNAMENTS FAIR!
Stay far away
by Gód Fathęr on 2019/01/02 15:22
So I started this game 32 days ago and invested about 700 dollars in that time to advance. I learned that this software developer lives by their name as “HUSTLE CASTLE” they hustle the consumer by force lost of matches. I have reported them to the better business bureau and I feel developers in this nature should not be allowed in iTunes and should be investigated upon for unfair and violation of privacy and said agreement and apple should be placing such apps in iTunes. As now I struggle to get my money back and have to go through legal matters steaming from playing this game. I’ve experienced a lot of bait tactics definitely in their tournament game play. I’ve even experienced a team battling me and losing against me and minutes later going against the same team that lost against me just to lose against them right after. It’s a software developer hustle to force the consumer out of money and is in violating if the consumers right of fair play. Stay away from this one... good game if you want to spend thousands to just be undercut by developer scandals
Good and bad
by jgirl897 on 2019/06/02 20:17
Bad and awful When u are watching the battle 1x is literally like u put it on slow mo. It’s like u really have to freaking pay to win or to have good eq in this game like seriously plz change that. And I hope y’all can have better events. For example the summer events is like 1 in a million chance of getting the runes. I personally like the unicorn event better way better than any other event. I hope u can I’d more events like the unicorn event, this game is getting more and more ridiculous with the way they try to get the money. Good/ and awesome Well, in this game u can talk to a lot of people you don’t even know. Although there are a lot of idiots in the global chat. Global chat is still fun especially all the drama that happens, lol. And talking about the clan, I personally like clans because the members helps you grow. What the point of a clan of u don’t talk with each other? Like....anyways in the arena I get last place almost ever again time, lol. I hope you can include tips and tricks to get better placing a in arena. Yeah, I know i talked a lot sorry about that. I love this game it’s just that sometimes y’all are just all about the money likeee......anyways that’s all I have to say. Have a great day😁. I just noticed I just a whole essay, lol. Ok bye.
Terrible customer support.
by Guerby Belizaire on 2019/11/27 20:17
I purchased some wolf tokens using the diamonds, a total of 6k. I thought I would be able to purchase the artifact, but that wasn’t the case. It doesn’t explain that you have to purchase the other groups first before you can get the artifact. Once I made the purchase that’s when it told me I had to buy the others first. Had I known I would’ve continued to save them. I requested my diamonds back and for them to get the wolf token back no problem. I didn’t spend those wolf tokens. I’ve been saving those diamonds for quite sometime waiting to purchase a nice artifact. This is the only game I play on my phone practically everyday or even spend real money on. So if you would please refund my the diamonds. They stated, “We totally understand your frustration over this situation, however, reverting successful in-game transactions goes against our policies....As stated earlier, we cannot provide assistance on the matter.”. They provided no help, no options, just a copy and paste answer.
The game is good but is frustrating at times
by Zombies 935 on 2021/07/19 17:18
I’ve been playing this game daily and I’ve reached the point where I’ve needed to have a few million coins to upgrade. Getting the first million is no problem but once I reach two million it’s like I’m enemy number one. I’ll put my phone down for a few hours and find that I’ve been attacked 6-7 times and everyone steals 2-3 thousand gold putting me back into the hundreds. I’ve had to hoard daily resource chests and watch the daily ads to earn diamonds so I can afford upgrades since it’s extremely rare for me to earn enough to afford them on my own. The I’ve had to grind to get the premium memberships so I’m able to produce enough gold to afford it. It’s ridiculous on how much production is for regular players as compared to those who cough up the money to get it. It would be fine if it was double but ten times the amount?
Fun!
by Lights L. on 2017/11/19 15:57
This is a lot more fun than fallout shelter. I really do enjoy playing this game. But I have to agree with someone else. Early on you can fight against people but later once someone has paid money and has better outfits, people etc then there's no way possible to win against them without paying yourself. UNLESS they make it possible where you get matched up with other non-playing players. Then it's fair. Overall the game is quite fun to kill time and enjoy. I have come across a bug though. I was playing all day yesterday fine, but today every time I'm in a battle whether I win or lose it gets stuck. Basically saying I am offline and I am not. I can pop up any other game, app etc on my phone and it is working fine. When I try to reload the game it won't even load. Hope this gets fixed.
Where’s the hustle in Hustle Castle?

At first, it’s an enjoyable game that has kingdom building aspects with a nice fighting function, and an aesthetically pleasing art style. However, in less than half a day of play time, it develops into a pay to advance/win game. After your throne advances to level 4, you’re stuck waiting a day and a half for build times just to advance your army. The ad watchers chest that gives you commons after 5 ads definitely isn’t worth it, and reducing the time by 30min by watching an ad doesn’t really help when your wait time is 16 hours. With the build timers, I won’t be able to advance in the game for a day and a half without spending money, so I doubt this is something I’ll play a lot, but it’ll be fun to come back to every few days and check up on. What could’ve been an amazing experience fell drastically short to a mediocre one.
Nothing Like the Advertisements
by RVARealtor on 2019/11/29 15:22
I’d Maybe give this 4 stars if it weren’t for the fact the only thing that enticed me to play this in the first place were the advertisements— which, the gameplay you see in the ads, isn’t even in the game! Still, very fun game. You are Heavily incentivized to sit through numerous ads multiple times a day. That part Blows, but I get it. Free game- need to make your money somewhere. I spent nothing other than time, and still had a fun time playing. I eventually deleted the game. Found I was spending too much time playing. Again, fun game. There are times you will be matched in arena play where you’re the weakest, but keep maxing your squad before leveling up your throne and you’ll soon find yourself back on top again. I’d recommend at least giving this game a try— could be 4 stars, but I hate the sleazy way they got me here.
Game is nice but continues to take my money.
by Aidens_Luv on 2019/08/16 01:45
I have tried to purchase the premium add on at least 4 different times and Apple withdraws the money out of my account but I don't get anything in the game. Contacted support showing screenshots and transaction ids and they literally said, we'll we didn't receive the money so there's nothing we can do. Then contacting apple which says because it is an In-app- Purchase, the only one that can provide service is the developers. My problem is that if you guys didn't get the money that shouldn't hinder the customer. If the customer can prove that they sent the payment through the host the problem is between the Dev and host (apple) not the customer. I wasted $27 and all i can get is a my apologies but because we didn't get the money you don't get the product even after numerous times. Smh sucky customer service. Sucky chain of command. And sucky compassion for the games prime players.

Its a ten outta ten
Not fun, you need to pay
by guayanese mango chutney, MD on 2021/07/26 04:52
This game is not very fun compared to other games. There’s not much sense that goes into the one activity available and again it’s not really fun. You win every single fight without pause until it is impossible to win period. Maybe it has the potential to be fun? If you were able to actually play it. But you hit a wall after about one day where you would need to spend about $30 in order to continue playing. Breakdown: you need 4 characters at a certain level. It costs 750 gems to upgrade 1 character. It costs like $10 to get 250 gems. Once you upgrade one you have the chance of getting more characters born at a higher level capacity. This process takes 9 hours and is not a guarantee. Just absolutely not fun by any definition. There is no reasonable way around paying including watching adds or putting in more time. Not worth downloading.
Slow
by ouui_mama on 2021/07/23 19:39
When I first got this game it was pretty fast paced and enjoyable but after about a week it slowed down really fast and I’ve had it for almost a year and all I can do is log in just long enough to collect my resources then can’t do much. Also I hate logging in because for the first 2 minutes I’m just closing everything that pops up.
Fun to a point
by kdmcE on 2021/07/23 14:19
Fun game, I really enjoy it. I am leader of a clan and that is where my major frustration comes in. If you find a player you would like to get in your clan, there is no way to contact them. Want to talk to one person in the clan, have to do it publicly in clan chat, as there is no other way to talk. Game needs to give players a mail system that allows us to privately talk to other players like other games do. I can’t ask people questions as by the time they come online, it may be lost in chat many messages above. If you could message them, they would be able to see it and respond more easily. Recruiting would be easier also, and warning players about to be kicked would stop any embarrassment at being called out publicly. Other than that, events are fun with good rewards, matchups are part of the strategy it seems,and sometimes it works other times you are pitted against monsters and there is no way to win.

The game is so fun
Fun for a while.
by Daniel.P.H on 2021/07/20 21:11
Game is a lot of fun for a while. After a while, of course, you hit a wall and it becomes extremely difficult to progress without spending money. Upgrades start taking 5, 6… or more days, to progress a single level. And it takes just as long to even collect the resources necessary to upgrade. Every once in a while there is a GREAT deal on diamonds where you can get like 20,000 for around $6. Other than that the purchasable content isn’t really worth it.
The game is good but is frustrating at times

Fun for a bit.
by TTph008-234 on 2021/07/15 16:24
The game is fun in the beginning, but sadly that does not last too long. Once other players, who are literally up to 500% your strength start farming you, it’s over - unless one buys gems to upgrade. I’m deleting and moving on.
blatant pay to win ruins potential
by Bob00000000000000000000001 on 2021/07/14 21:41
aside from insane pay to win microtransactions that completely ruin any hope of a competitive game its a decent Fallout Shelter knock off
Enjoyable.
by Fjjdjdf on 2021/07/10 02:28
It’s actually a pretty enjoyable game. I was just in a car wreck and this is helped keep me sane and able to help me enjoy my time while healing! The wait times to build things can be pretty long but I fill my time with the arena and battles.
False Advertising
by psiucrash24 on 2021/07/09 21:35
I got this game because I saw the ad for the game and to my dismay, it plays nothing like all the advertisements I have seen. It’s just like Fallout Shelter with other elements for PVP battles and contests, but the core of the game is the same. The dwellers run different rooms and can be upgraded to get more resource amounts and they can be kitted with weapons and armor. But again, this does not play anything like their fake ads.
It wouldn’t open so I uninstalled it from my phone,
by Haylieghz on 2021/07/09 13:29
When I tried to connect to Game Center, nothing came up, so I thought I lost my progress. Then, I purchased 6000 diamonds for the new account to hopefully get to where I was before a little quicker, and the option for my old account came up. When I loaded my old account I lost all 6000 diamonds. I don’t know if there a glitch in my phone or what but I’m glad I have my progress, sad I lost gems before I got to use them.
I like it a lot
by austin stoneafin on 2021/07/09 00:28
I love this game and I might want you to make some more updates because all I just love this game and maybe I might want like some extra level Old Navy on you and he may be something different kinds of stuff
You are the best games I’ve ever seen in App Store
by cody573 on 2021/07/06 19:31
This game is amazing you should download it it’s more the Bears it’s a good strategy game and it’s amazing it’s way better than Clash of Clans it’s amazing but I also kind of wish that you will get 500 gems it is I’ll be cooler but everything else is amazing no bugs no great glitches or anything it’s the best game
Banned for no reason
by Jazzy132897564 on 2021/07/06 02:07

How fun and addicting this game is
by MSBJUKEE on 2021/07/01 21:59
This game is so fun and addicting to the point where I have been playing it for hours now
Fun, But needs work
by Sir Thrall on 2021/06/30 21:42
Very addictive game but there needs to be a sort button for gear for your dwellers. So for your archers/mages/melee give the option to do that an to sort from rarity then to what’s actually best on top. I think sorting threw gear in this game is the least enjoyable part of the game an can be down right frustrating. Because developers could easily fix this. That’s why it’s 3 stars review.
Pretty good game
by Zaythegoat216 on 2021/06/25 21:59
It’s a pretty good game. I feel like there certain things that can be done better. I feel like you should be able to play the game offline but you can’t do any of the pvp part of the game until you are back online. I also feel like you should be able to make money faster but that just apart of the game. I don’t really feel like it should be fixed but it would great to earn money a little faster. I also feel like the combat part of the game is cool but I would like to be able to speed up the fight without paying for the premium version of the game. Also I would like to be able to permanently buy the goblin assistant with in game currency or real money but you should be able to have the option to pay either way.
Multiple times per day offers
by Bro Fleet on 2021/06/21 06:50
Every time u open the game u have to click through pay to play offers. They have different times to expire but it doesn’t matter they’ll throw it back up a day later. Takes 10 seconds just to get tot the game screen. Missed clan wars from last minute deploying and having offers to click thru. I’m throne room 11. Have had 2 builders for over 2 years and have nothing left to construct. So why the F am I constant getting a offer to buy another one!? Just shots in the dark at players hoping we’ll buy anything. Skip the game devs don’t listen. Still haven’t gotten rid of the cool downs in guild territory which didn’t start with cool downs. They implemented after the fact
Until you stop with the fake demos!!
by SetecFl on 2021/06/18 07:39
The game is actually fun but the demo ads are full of crap! Fire your marketing team!!! I’ll change my review once you stop with the fake ads and the constant pop-ups of “buy this” crap! Let us enjoy the game you created and stop with the spam! Otherwise my 1 star stands!
A lot of bad reviews
by its a good game, bad reviews on 2021/06/18 04:40
I see a lot of people saying that this game is slow going, not fun, and a waste of money. If you hate the game, don’t give up. It’s wrong to do that. You must work hard a lot to be good.
The pop ups are horrendous
by frogg626 on 2021/06/17 20:44
Recently they added in pop ups which pop up allllll the time and you need to click through each offer. I have 11 at the moment. They only pop up after you’ve invested enough time into the game.

Advertising Spam and Scam
by Toddles88 on 2021/06/15 12:08
The advertisement for this game is not like the game play; this seems to be a ploy by the developers as their other games have the same bait and switch tactic. Furthermore when you log into the game they force you to see their pay to win items and when you close the window it will reopen and force you to look at each available package before letting you play again. If they weren’t so obnoxiously money hungry the game would be enjoyable, but frankly it ruins the player’s experience.
We need some improvements
by kbfixit on 2021/06/13 15:03
Alright, so here is the deal, in tournaments I am getting pitted up with people who have god-tier armor and weapons, it’s a pay to win game, and players like me need some slack because we are getting pummeled by a.I because even if we have max level combat, the best gear available for us, and a bunch of combat points, we STILL get our butts kicked. I am not saying this game is bad, but it REALLY needs some improvements. Because I am not one of those people you expect to blow my life savings on a slightly better experience, so you developers think of ways to make this game NOT pay to win or I ain’t doing this game.
Fantastic game at first !!
by Zechariah B on 2021/06/13 14:22
The rune event really kills any love I had for this game , I enjoy the camaraderie that my mates in the game have built up . As others have said if one really wants to get ahead in this game one needs to stump out cash. I love the bubble and hammer event, the challenge event is special I give this game two stars because it was a fantastic game at first. I am NOT quitting because of my mates, I have quite a bit invested in this game .

by Rotten48 on 2021/06/06 13:05
You are forced to pay for premium and upgrades. If you don’t the stronger players or the ones that spend the most money will take what gold you have. When you are in tournaments you are constantly fighting a lot stronger players.
False Advertising
by Becky Lunch on 2021/06/04 00:24
The ads that made me get this app made it seem like it was puzzles and games to play. This is not the case… I have no clue what is happening in this game, and I cannot find any way to do what the advertisement showed that this app was. It starts with forcing you to do different tasks in a castle, nothing like the advertisements showed. I don’t understand why advertising is drastically different from what this actually is. Attempted to mess around in it for 10 minutes, waste of time. :(
Stupid “Unique Offers” pop ups ruin the game
by FantasticDuck on 2021/06/03 19:41
I used to love this game. Now I can’t login without 4 or 5 pop screens declaring UNIQUE OFFER! trying to get me to spend real money before I can play. And it’s not once a day. It’s EVERY time I log in. I get they want you to spend money on the game but this trend has me to the point it’s causing me to no longer want to play as it’s annoying.
Much to improve
by loincom on 2021/06/03 04:54
Fun game riddled with terrible usability, cumbersome game flows, and a constant barrage of ads to get you to spend money. Tech support is pathetic / none empathetic at best.
Game is a scam
by crice256 on 2021/06/01 15:40
Have been playing this game for a year now and the rune events use to be decent to where you could get several runes by opening 159 chests. I’ve opened 200 chests and have gotten 1 rune. I have 9 that I need. I guess spending $20 on events means you get total garbage for rewards. I really liked the game for a good bit but lately it’s turned into a $$ scam to where they want you to spend hundreds of dollars to play. I’m done after spending money in every event for the past year. My time and my money will be spent elsewhere. Update: I ended up opening 234 chests and wound up with 2 of the 10 runes that I needed. If you guys are going to charge people $20 for an event there should be better results than this for a drop rate. The game is geared for those that spend big money. You will get more money from players if they are able to get what they think they are paying for. With the way it is now for me I’m not spending anymore money or my time playing this game as the last few events I’ve not been able to get the items that the $20 buy in shows you can get. 234 chests and a great deal of my time should have resulted in more than 2 runes. I also tried to contact support but there is no option to leave feedback there on this subject. Bottom line is give people what they pay for and don’t scam them into thinking they are getting something that is unattainable unless they spend big money on each event. I’ve spent hundreds of dollars on this game and you guys just lost a devoted customer due to being too greedy.
Pay to continue
by Genesius2001 on 2021/05/31 11:28
Once you hit about level seventeen, there doesn’t seem to be any way of progressing without paying a lot of money to do it. It was fun while it was lasted, but I’ll probably be deleting it soon.

Ads don’t match the game
by Jimwymr on 2021/05/30 13:28
I played this game for a little while but it requires you to spend too much money to advance. So I shelved it. Recently while playing some other game, I came across ads for it which look nothing like the game I remember, so I reloaded it. It’s still the old game. Why are you putting out ads that look like some new game and yet you still have the same old game?!Back on the shelf you go.
Pay to play
by Mynickname47 on 2021/05/30 11:45
I really love the premise and the game play of this game. It’s just so defeating... Unless you are spending major money, it is very difficult to get ahead in this game. Constantly playing against those who have millions more power is no fun. Never getting any runes in the event is frustrating because you can get to the same level of those with millions more without runes....
Yep, This is a review
by ItsAustin1280 on 2021/05/30 08:54

Like fallout shelter but better
by Bossam101 on 2021/05/29 02:07
Beginning review I’m new but I see the resemblances. More cartooney and really fun so far. A lot simpler. I haven’t the walls that the other player have mentioned yet. If you havennnt played fallout. You build a team. Of fighters / people stay at home to keep up on things. Fight to make money to build upgrades and advance. There are videos to get extras. In app purchases if you want but I havent needed any yet . Have you played fallout/Skyrim? The game shows your equipment comparisons so you know if what your equipping is beneficial or not. Best feature so far hahah.

Not happy
by fixproplem on 2021/05/26 00:16
I was enjoying the game . I work a full time job. I had a day off was playing arena as much as I could to get my glory. I get the bot test because of Suspicious activity. Which I failed twice because I can not see what the pics are because they put a scribble through the test. I already am half blind and the test is unfair. Now I am suspended for 24 hrs. They have no problem taking my money. Very upset with the game. I was picked on three times today. I want my privileges back. Now not only are you hurting me and my glory competition your hurting my clan. This is very unjust. Fix the problem. Very unhappy player! You really do not deserve the one star.
They hustle you
by Pitbulls are not evil on 2021/05/25 03:39
Constant add pop ups never ending special events to get you to spend money and you never get the items you try to buy, game is nothing but a money trap. You can’t advance unless you spend thousands. I bought this event and nearly 100 collections and not a single item worth anything.
Not the game you saw in ads
by Yellajkts on 2021/05/24 22:15
Another one of these games that advertises one thing on social media. Then when you download it and install it hoping you’re getting what you saw. To only be let mislead with this crappy game. DONT DOWNLOAD! This isn’t the game they advertised.
Great if you have 1k to spend on the game
by Derpingderp0927 on 2021/05/24 18:05
It’s a free game, so obviously they have to have some way to make money. I think paying for resources and speed ups are a good way to do that, but this game has pvp and lets you buy items that just let you win. Starts off fun (I even spent some money on it because I enjoyed it) then it turns into “absolutely no way to win, unless you wanna gimme $100” If you decide to take your time, not pay, grind the levels. Well do they have a solution for you! Instead of letting that work, they just triple the power of whoever you pvp and it makes it pointless. Not to mention OP items are included in the game, where a Player can have a fighter do the following: (effect on weapon) at start of fight, summon 3 golems which cannot be killed for 12 seconds, and take 60% of fighters HP to summon. When golems die, give HP back to fight or Res him if dead. + (separate item) if user drops to critical health, give him immunity shield for 3 seconds, then when it goes away it deals 35k health to everyone in a long range from fighter. (For those unaware 40k health is a soft cap for fighters at this level) UPDATE: since developers reached out and asked, I will give the following ideas for making the game more enjoyable while still rewarding developers. I don’t care about people buying in game gems to speed up building or etc, but for PvP make a ranked system that lets players of similar stats fight. If someone has full legendary, don’t put them against people who don’t. Considering it takes 2-3 days to make one piece of legendary equipment. Offer more cosmetic items, not just equipment which makes you win or do an unreasonable amount of damage. (Like with the castles how it has 30+ cosmetic sets which do nothing but change looks. Not give castle huge buffs) Possibly take away some items like the combo mentioned above which I do not honestly believe can be beaten unless you turn off all artifacts and kill everything within 5 seconds. As for “still rewarding the developers” consider that giving people an easier time in game, leads to more sales. One of the games I love is crush the all because you get a lot of resources to use and can buy more, which gives other bonuses (ie upgrade multiple things or etc). And as much as I understand needing to make money off game development, this game has a price on everything. Want your castle to look nice? $20, want some max tier workers? $5-10. Want to get premium? Monthly $5-$20. Want to have things auto collect? $5-10. There is nothing in this game you cannot just buy, which ruins the experience.
Customer service fail do not play
by AdRock!!! on 2021/05/23 22:08
If you play this game and it feels you are a bot because you are doing well it will suspect you of being an artificial intelligence... apparently humans can’t do well?!?!? They created a Captcha Authenticator with icons that you can’t see clearly through the swirl they place over them which makes it nearly impossible to decipher what’s under the swirl. As a result of failing this test I have been locked out for 1 hour, 24 hours, and 3 days, and for the record my vision is 20/20. I contacted customer support and was responded to my Keith notifying me that ‘Support’ “doesn’t recheck or consider the results of the test” quote from Keith. I simply confirmed that I was a real person and requested my game to be unlocked, easy enough request in my opinion, as an account administrator myself I know how easy this is to do.
Hustle castle problem
by Huntergaming30tiktok on 2021/05/21 01:21
I have a problem that the game doesn’t want to load and I would of rate it a five star but to do that. First it has to be fix and that’s all I’m asking y’all to do for me please.
Live’s up to its name...
by BHStudios on 2021/05/19 13:13
This game is addicting and fun. But after a very short time you’re getting hustled... and hustled hard. It’s near impossible to level up without spending a ton of money. I’ve spent more on this game than any other game I’ve ever played in the past decade. PvP battles: very frustrating because you’re not paired up well with other’s at the same level as you. They could be 10 levels higher, better weapons/armor and can never be beaten. And I’ve seen so many that raid my castle at ridiculous levels take so much resources it’s discouraging. What’s the use of even trying? Gems: this is the most greediest game when it comes to gems. They’re too expensive. The developers never reward gems for anything - like if the server goes down for maintenance which is always an inconvenience... nothing. Other games like AFK are very generous with things like these. It keeps the gamers happy and continue to play and spend. I’d say only play this game if you have a decent amount of disposable income... because you’re gonna need it.
Paying to win
by CodPieceHeroine on 2021/05/19 10:22
The pay to win option I think has made this game a lot less enjoyable for me . My husband got me interested and has been guiding me with building my castle . I do enjoy the battles . The camel expedition was not very impressive, possibly because too much hype was made of it and when I actually got to go on one . It was nowhere as great , I loved the last event with the hammers and bubbles I earned quite a bit. The camaraderie built up with friends through this game is great .
In app purchases don’t work
by vgghufffgh on 2021/05/18 18:06
I just paid $20 for diamonds and it took my money, gave me the diamonds then didn’t upgrade my room. Just took the diamonds and money. It’s a scam. I’ve also had someone buy diamonds using my account and the game and Apple refuse to refund me. This game is awful. Please don’t download it. There are so many other way better games.
Unfair
by Da Boz! on 2021/05/16 16:04
Each day I log in I find I’ve been attacked at least five times, loosing 400-500K in coins FROM EACH ATTACK. I check my map and I can barely even earn 100K if I attack other castles, or they’re more powerful than me so I can’t attack them at all. I’ve been trying to save up coins to upgrade my training room FOR MONTHS, but the constant attacks make it impossible...unless I spend money on diamonds to get the coins. I won’t do that, I forgave the issue with being entirely unable to participate in the arena because of this absurdly unbalanced and unfair matching system, but this is unacceptable. Your game is a scam, and unless you plan on fixing the arena AND reimbursing me for the millions of coins I EARNED that I lost because of this ridiculously unbalanced player system, I’m never touching this again.

False advertisement
by Dissapointed in this app on 2021/05/13 17:48
Add were nothing like the real game which is a knock off version of fallout shelter. For the game to continue while you’re away you have to hire a goblin which takes jewels and that’s one way how they try and try over and over to get you to buy things.
Arena is too hard + other issue
by xxk3990 on 2021/05/12 19:10
Like some other reviewers have been saying, the arena is way too hard. All teams are like 4-5 million above me even though I'm at like 6-7 mil overall. Please make it so you get partnered against other teams similar in threat level. Many other games do this so I don't see why you guys can't. Also unrelated but I just noticed that the Shadow's set is labeled as a tank set and the weapon is a tank weapon but then the armor and armor soul are for an archer. Please either make it a tank set or archer set!
Fix the cash problem please I don’t have any money to able to get throne rooms

I liked the game at first got decent cash campion how I got the cash mostly I was mad when I waited 2days for a potential 2 they had great states know somehow I cants win a battle with better units then the other team fix it
Way too tedious...
by rickympls on 2021/05/06 21:38
This game is ALMOST fun, but as a ‘Free’ player, here’s how it goes.... 1) fight battle. 2) move fighters from the barracks to the hospital so they can heal. 3) wait a minute or so while they heal. 4) move fighters from hospital back to barracks. 5) fight next battle. This doesn’t sound so bad, BUT you need to fight lots & lots of battles in order to earn enough gold and materials. It ends up taking way more time than it should, and I just don’t have the patience for all that.
Great game but needs a little update
by AZb's on 2021/05/06 07:21
I love the game and it is very addictive, but everything in the game take a little too long. I am waiting days after days just to upgrade on thing. Then if you want to get another builder it is costing money. Please reduce the time limit, I’m not saying but a lot just a little
Keeps kicking me
by tyopiuks on 2021/05/04 18:27
Ok I love the game so much definitely a good game just gonna say that but here’s the problem I’m at level 14 and my name is um let me check... “Chale Da King” I’m in a clan named God’s Warriors. But enough of that ok when I come in the game it’s fine for like a couple minutes then kicks me out of the game and if I’m in the middle of moving a person to another room or upgrading something it won’t resets when I come in so I have to move them again or upgrade my building again “it doesn’t reset my castle” so it would be really helpful if you can please help me. Thank you for reading this and I hope it’s not too much trouble.
Customer support is one dude sitting in his mom’s trailer
by Jengu33 on 2021/05/04 09:40
The generic response from customer support is nauseating. This game is a joke. Arena is completely useless because there is no even matching system between players and because the little incompetent developer didn’t pass his basic algorithm class.

by Pro DJ Fire Az Speedy Flash on 2021/04/30 14:11
So the game is really fun and all but it’s like spend money and you’ll get like for example in the Golden Clover place if you get all the ordinary items then you need to buy the golden clover to get more of the other stuffs so that why I don’t like it that much

by Wonks04 on 2021/04/27 12:28
I’ve regretfully spent too much money in this game. Purely by accident when using my Apple Pay card to purchase a gem pack for 60 dollars it was declined saying 120.00 I brought this up to customer service and was asked for screenshots. Don’t bother it’s more a customer disservice!
Pretty Good
by M Sev on 2021/04/24 15:41
All in all it’s a solid game with a lot to do and a lot to work on. The only problem I’ve ever had in the placements for the arena system. Don’t get me wrong it’s frustrating losing, but that’s not the issue. If you do manage to place in the top 3 out of 10. You immediately get thrown against people that are 100 times better than you and you stay there for a bit of time. The game doesn’t make it harder it makes it impossible. I don’t mind losing if I can work my way back up, but if I get punished for placing in the top 3. Why am I not going anywhere when the last 17 arenas I’ve been at the very bottom? With 0 wins out of 5 or I get 1 win out of 5 and the rest is impossible. It’s very frustrating that I can only place 1 out of 30 or 40 arenas and the rest that I don’t place is impossible for me to even scratch the surface. Rewrite the algorithm for the placement in arenas please.
Annoying
by grant ellis remley on 2021/04/24 00:37
It would be better if the actual game was like the nice ads.
Too many ads
by cpalmer406 on 2021/04/20 14:03
When I opened the game it would show me 5 sales they had going on to buy stuff on the game. Game was fun but not that fun, and the ads really take away from the game. I spent a couple bucks on it, but it seemed like it wanted $5 every couple days. Not worth it
Fake
by dav1899 on 2021/04/19 21:18
Fake, like most games. Ad shows a puzzle game which gets you to download it, but the actual game is completely different.
Don’t bother downloading the game and the game useless

I have been stuck on the downloading the game for 5 minutes no progress also saying that is not connected to the internet and the network has been fine the hole day
Unbalanced and unfair
by ahlin571 on 2021/04/15 21:26
I’ve been playing this game for a while now and I’ve reached the conclusion that no matter your progress or what you spend on it you will never be able to be your opponents. The moment you upgrade your characters is the moment you get put into a tougher bracket. It seems the moment you feel like you’re doing good, you were in the exact same spot you were just a couple days ago. The game is incredibly unbalanced and is solely focused on getting you to spend money on in game currency so you can try to get ahead but even when you do that it’s not enough. My recommendation It’s a stay clear of this game until they resolve their issues
Good game needs fix’s
by ToxinFN on 2021/04/08 19:28
At first the game is fun and pretty balanced. It only took a little while to complete wretched land. Then once I progressed a little bit I played some tournaments. At first I got first and second place. Then once my power was about 39,000 and I did a tournament I was against other players with double my power. So at that point I decided to do some story quests and I finally got stuck in the volcano area. There for I decided to try and upgrade my fighter training area to level 4 and it was 150,000 coins. Eventually I just bought a pack to upgrade it. On fixes I think that their should be something to make your enemies in tournaments around +5000 your power or -5000 your power. I also think some things should be cheaper and training time a little shorter. Over all I would recommend it ,but needs change.
Don’t get it twisted it’s pay for play
by Jschexxy on 2021/04/07 20:39
Still fun though if you’re honest with yourself but if you join a good clan then can help make it so you’re not spending much to have fun.
Dwellers
by Nomadic Biker on 2021/04/07 20:11
I am liking everything about this game it just needs the ability to view all dwellers at once just like in the fallout version to make it easier to manage their individual inventories and put them where they need to go
Personally I like it!

Game Is Broken
by Region3A on 2021/03/27 07:26
I started a month ago and got hooked to it. Now, it’s broken... stuck. You’re offering prizes for completion of quests that I can’t even complete because of the enemy balance. Other players that you put on the map are almost all over-powered (I am at 400,000 and almost everyone else is at 3,000,000 to 15,000,000). The arena is severely broken. I’ve sat there for hours waiting for the tournament to start and nothing happens. It is still looking for challengers. And when I do finally play the tournaments, it is also not balanced. Most players are over powered. Out of 15 players in a tournament, I’m almost always in 14th or 15th because it’s me and a couple other players that are between 500,000 and 300,000 while everyone else is 3,000,000 to 15,000,000. Even with pay to play, I can’t win. That’s why it’s broken. Fix this or you’re going to lose me!

I have experienced two bugs when we were upgrading the characters I got two of them training at level 30 they finish the training but they continue to be at level 30 and a little bit before writing this review I watch the video to get rid of 40 minutes on their training and I was scammed out of 10 minutes it was at 44 minutes I watched another video and it was down to 14 minutes I should’ve only had 14 minutes and a couple seconds left and some of the battles don’t make sense how one character can get hit but very little help is actually taken from the for amount of health even though they’re wearing pretty basic gear not like level one or two somewhere in 30s or 40s but still
The game is not as advertised!
by Swole Black on 2021/03/21 13:58
So the developers saw fit to have ethnic diversity on the loading screen; however, during gameplay you don’t see diversity (except for the Hero character). So why is it so hard to have the dwellers in different skin colors to show the same diversity as that in the real world? To show what is on your loading screen? Why is that so difficult? False advertising and it needs to be addressed!
REAL REVIEW FROM FORMER PLAYER - Terrible game, worse customer service
by jhtdhfhhgehhr on 2021/03/17 20:08
This game is a perfect example of “the dark ages of video games.” These developers are only interested in your money for minimal creativity on their part. Additionally, they will punish you just because someone complains about you. Theres no interest in maintaining a reasonable gaming environment. If you want a poorly produced game with the worst group of developers that is only looking to take your money, THIS is your game. These guys are awful, enjoy! Update (for the developers): THE TIME TO “TALK ABOUT IT” WAS BACK WHEN I WAS REACHING OUT TO YOU VIA YOUR IN GAME CUSTOMER SERVICE TICKETS AT WHICH TIME YOU ADVISED THAT I “ONLY REACH OUT FOR REAL ISSUES SO THAT YOU CAN KEEP YOUR CUSTOMER SERVICE AVAILABLE TO DEAL WITH ACTUAL PROBLEMS.” IM SORRY BUY I WOULD THINK THAT BEING MISTREATED BY OTHER PLAYERS IS A SERIOUS PROBLEM...? IM SURE THAT HAD IT BEEN A PROBLEM GETTING MY PAYMENTS TO GO THROUGH YOU WOULD HAVE SNAPPED TO IT NICE AND QUICK TO TAKE CARE OF THAT “MUCH MORE SERIOUS AND REAL PROBLEM”

Can’t restart progress
by GamerAtticus on 2021/03/16 14:41
I want to have a fresh start on Hustle castle, but there is one problem. You can’t. There isn’t a way to reset your progress on the game unlike better games like fallout shelter. I like having a fresh start on games, so if I can’t, it hurts my perception of that game. If only the developers could listen to the consumer.
Fair, Fun, Addicting and Hilarious
by Matt. G on 2018/02/12 21:45
My experience with this game has been great. The prices are pretty fair and everyday you can earn rewards so it doesn’t seem impossible to craft items, rooms and your troops. It’s also pretty fair that if someone actually pays for items that they have an advantage over someone who doesn’t. I find it silly when people say it’s not fair. I have made a few purchases and they were worth it. Also very hilarious! I love how the developers didn’t take the characters to dark and serious but not too silly either as if I was playing a kids game. The social feed makes me laugh all the time, so I look forward to progressing through the game and seeing what they have to say. And even the subtle intricate faces and miscellaneous things the characters do are genius. I’ve been playing this for a few months but what made me write this review was the new “Spring Festival” Update. I was fighting the dragon’s warriors and saw two Pandas fighting in the air and could not stop laughing. Overall Hustle Castle is my favorite game.
Tournaments are rigged
by hairinyosoup on 2020/06/20 19:12
The game can be addictive and is enjoyable for a while, but like everyone else has mentioned, you eventually reach a wall where you absolutely have to spend money to compete or progress in the story. Arena tournaments are the most notorious for this. I’m almost always the weakest army in the tournament, sometimes getting matched up with other players who are three or four times my strength. Usually I have no chance which is no fun, and fun is the point of playing. I grind on this game so much. Been playing daily for over a year now and haven’t won a tournament or came even close to it after maybe the first week or so of playing. You need five star players to compete, and you can watch ads to get diamonds to upgrade your characters but the ads only give you 5 diamonds per ad with a limit of how many you can watch at a time. You can get more in the portal when it’s open but it’s unlikely you’ll get more than 100 before the portal shuts. You need 2,000 diamonds to get your character to 5 stars. That’s on top of the diamonds you’ve likely spent to get them from three stars to a four. Please update to where the tournaments are more even. Matching me with several players in a tournament that are over A MILLION squad points higher than my own is dumb and unfair. If as many people play this game as you all claim, the grouping certainly can’t come from a lack of online players. I know this company wants to make money, but gee-wiz. Cut us some slack.
Slow going
by losinginterestfast on 2019/09/24 15:36
First of all, it’s not as exciting as they make it out to be in the advertising, a bit boring compared to the advertising. Some of the side events aren’t even playable unless you spend money on it due to being under powered. The arena for example, with all your stats maxed out and the best weapons and armor you can find, a couple weeks into the game you’ll find yourself being the weakest person on the list unable to get through one round. Just happens you have to beat a certain number of players for the achievement, good luck beating one if your lucky because they’ll match you to players who spend money ( which is probably deliberate to inspire you to spend ). I’ve been playing for over a year and at this point it’s just unrewarding repetition. Clear the lands, watch a ton of advertisements, some of them lock up the game and cause you to restart. Game support is unresponsive regarding the issue. My advice on many of these games in the App Store, buy a console if you don’t have one already, play console games. Once in a while you may feel compelled to buy an add on but the console games are far less money and you won’t spend a year watching timers count down. A huge problem, pretty much every time you reach another realm it can take months to develop your fighters to a strength in which they can even start completing the fighting stages, then you whip through the realm and repeat the whole process. These negative factors make the game pretty boring.
Has lots of potential, but...
by manchebeech on 2019/10/30 09:33
When I first started playing this game I would give it 5 stars. Which by the way is when they ask you to rate the game. Which is probably why this has so many good reviews. As I played more, my rating slowing dwindled because I realized how much time and money and I’m talking hundreds upon hundreds of dollars, it takes to get anywhere in this game. When gearing your warriors, the game is broken when trying to get legendary items. The only efficient way of getting them is by participating in this broken system they have called Arena. For everything other than than arena. This game utilizes a “squad” power which basically tells you how strong your team is. Everything from what I can see is based around it EXCEPT for the arena. its based on the average level of of your squad 0-100. So what happens is I get paired with teams who have 3 to 4 times my squad power who are the same lvl as I am, they hit me three times and I’m dead. Not fun at all and it’s a complete waste of time. If they based it around squad power instead, I would at least have a chance. The devs know this has been an issue since the inception of it but they refuse to do anything about it. They say they are working ok fixing it but don’t. If that’s the case give us alternative methods of obtaining legendary items efficiently and not force me to spend ridiculous amounts of money to obtain them. 2 stars for this game.
Pay to play all the way
by Cart man1313 on 2018/11/10 07:03
Good game at first, then you find yourself stuck big time unless you pay a lot. At first your against other new players and you can actually compete in the arena which is critical for rewards. But eventually you hit a massive roadblock where all the players have all legendary gear and you just get slaughtered over and over unless you spend big and I mean big on getting legendary gear. Also as you level up your throne room and castle level they keep raising the bar ie raid costs, event costs, upgrade times, and other aspects become unobtainable. I’ll be deleting the game after this as my entire clan is stuck loosing arena battles to people with all legendary gear and unable to improve due to horrific time and resource requirements. It really is not worth playing unless your ready to drop an easy hundred bucks maybe more. They bait you initially with special offers, but the gear you may buy becomes obsolete quickly along with other upgrades. You actually have to throw matches just to stay at a manageable level it’s pathetic. I give two stars for good initial gameplay but after a month or so it’s hands down the most money grubbing game I’ve played. I hope people read this and don’t play because I think they feed off new players enjoying the game until the end date where you realize you been ripped off hard. Boooooo.
P2W
by Okoleen on 2020/03/29 01:25
I’d been playing for a week or so before deciding to nix this game from my library. Achievements, quests, and story line aside, this game has an awful amount of pay to win, arena is a most notable example considering its one of the few you’re able to experience early on, and probably for the reason of getting you to pay for those glamorous items these other players have, the devs have the hots for showing off what you can get for a quick buck in their pocket. For example, I began and ended during the Phoenix event, and finding that people who had a lower combat level than I have a seamless trait to destroy my entire team. It may have been poor strategizing but I couldn’t find but one instance of my having a lower power level being advantageous, or at least better suited to beat my opponent, and of course I’d outfit myself with items that had the best stats I could RNG from these loot crates/chests. Now for the advertisement, it’s poor and most of the time irrelevant. What inspired me to play this game was this bridge building game mode that I could find no resemblance of in the game, I found it intriguing yet unfounded and no trace of that game mode being present in the app itself. My advice, don’t invest in this game, there’ll always be someone whose spent more than you; don’t put time into this that could have been spent elsewhere, and elsewhere would be much more beneficial if not profitable than this.
Get your games straight
by jonh goodman on 2020/01/29 14:01
First and foremost I do enjoy the game I seriously do however the event were you get to spin and use the 100 snowflakes to spin and see what kind of prize you get is completely not worth it, it’s simply ment for you to think you have a chance to win something big and trust I have checked with my alliance members and none of them have posted any big wins that’s insane !! You have a great app why do push people away by making these stupid excuses for a great game?? Why!!!! We are loyal customer and you by far treating this like this nothing also the time it takes to get support from you is almost impossible seriously a reply to my iCloud would be nice. By the this reminds me of the 2accounts I have lost so far! YES YES YES 2 !!! 2 flipping accounts on this one device. What is the point of linking it with Game Center if it won’t remember you if the app was deleted by accident or cleared ? My account is still the same with Game Center so was my data not saved or was this just left behind I do make purchases with my games and I do want to buy some stuff here but how can feel secure that if I lose my app or phone again I will also get the investment I put into the game back well because I won’t that’s why. GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER.
Fallout Shelter Clone
by BigChiefton on 2018/05/20 08:14
Great game, I just wish I didn’t get rekt by all the pay to win plebs. As a game designer myself, I know there are ways to make money on a free to play game, pay to win has to be the sleaziest way of doing it. It reeks of laziness and poor business ethics, I will continue playing this game because I genuinely enjoy it and if you’re looking for a game that’s highly addictive and don’t mind grinding for days give this one a try. All things considered, it’s a great game concept, it’s easy to play, has a goofy storyline, it’s pay to win AF, and it’s highly addictive . . . if you’re into Fallout Shelter clones. Please studio nords or my com if you’re reading this consider reworking the pay to win system it’s just not fair or competitive. Yes it’s fun but I have 46 tournament tickets because I can’t win any of my tournaments against all the people that bought their legendary gear so why should I even bother with doing tournaments. Why can’t you just be happy with your $5 a month from premium players? At least let me buy those legendary item pieces with diamonds. So far the only thing in this game that seems fair is the portals and even then only the people that have been playing the longest and buying the best gear can truly benefit from that.
Fun, but it’ll cost ya
by Danno210 on 2018/03/05 03:25
I’m generally ok with pay to play if the game is honest and fair, but after playing for a couple months now it’s become clear to me that their AI is designed to restrict your castle and team’s abilities once you’ve gone about 7-10 days without paying for something. Overnight it will go from where you’re doing decent, even quite well, then the next day you get destroyed by everyone you come across, even PVE, PVP, and tournaments - all of it just gets to where you obviously cannot achieve anything unless you cough up even more money. Even purposefully allowing your team to get destroyed over and over to lower your ranking dramatically [which should cause the AI to adjust and put you up against more evenly-matched foes] has no effect at all. I mean zero. I’d say I’ve spent about $60 on this game and frankly that’s way more than enough for a “free to play” game so since I’ve learned it’s going to put the screws to me about 7-10 days after my last cash purchase in the game, I can not recommend this game to anyone no matter how much fun it is - which is sad because it’s a really fun game. Just keep your wallet open and your cash endlessly flowing if you want to continue to get anywhere - the AI will make sure you do. And that’s not acceptable.
Waist of money
by Dont go !!!! on 2018/06/28 05:02
I download the game and was enjoying trying to build up a team but no matter what you do or how powerful u get ur team ull get beat by someone half the strength. And they have one armor “skeleton armor” thats impossible to get and totally one sided that u kill ur opponent and it resurrects two skeletons and u kill them and the opponent again and itll resurrect 2 more skeletons and repeat even though ur army is twice the strength. They do this to get you to spend more and more money and one week upl be doing good beating everyone and then the next week u cant beat anyone to get you to spend more. Sadly ive spent hundreds on this game and its just set up so you keep spending in hope that eventually youll be able to start winning but take it from me that wont happen cause they just want your money and with the skeleton armor no matter how weak the opponent is you loose. Ive contacted the support team about it and they dont do anything and if u email them again they just close ur ticket and ignore you. Its to bad cause if it wasnt about just getting ur money and setting it up to loose no matter how strong you are it would prob be a good game but if you dont wanna throw ur money away just to be frustrated and not get anywhere no matter how much you spend i wouldnt even bother with this game.
Strong on PTW
by sailor_0703 on 2018/01/21 07:51
This one is fun and entertaining, but could be better. Not even out of the "tutorial" stages yet, and I already can see how it is very strongly a pay-to-win type game. What's worse, it is one that requires a subscription for its premium benefits(so not a one-time purchase for premium benefits, but rather a monthly payment). Greedy developers. The subscription does NOT, however, give you all the good stuff. A subscription does not even give you any extra in-game currency(meaning diamonds). Furthermore, the matching system for this game is WAY out of wack. Not only does it almost always put me up against players WAY stronger than me, but even when other players seem to be weaker than, I still will often lose. The battles are extremely unpredictable. That was before. Now, they have created a whole new battle "Arena," where you go up against other players, to fight them for prizes. Only once again, I am put up against players with "squad power" all more than mine, and most of the players have more than twice my own "squad power." The battles are also, once again, extremely unpredictable. I find it impossible to beat ANYONE I'm put up against in the Arena. Several MAJOR adjustments are needed in this game.
Sick of dealing with it!!!
by gamergirldee on 2020/03/16 17:28
First off I’ve been playing this game for a yr now and I have been stuck in the same position forever! This is why. There is absolutely no reason a person with 3 million squad power should be attacking somebody with only 750 thousand squad power and taking 3 days worth of loot! Clearly I could never win revenge against this person! Every time I get so close to being able to upgrade something people in the millions come and attack me and take everything! And TONS of points but when I attack somebody in the 500 thousands sometimes I don’t even get any points? This game should have leagues were certain groups can only attack people in their squad power range! There’s no reason for any of this besides complete unfairness! And don’t even get me started on the tournaments.. Completely out of wack. Sometimes I get lucky enough to even able to go up against 1-2 people without others being WAY higher than me. I’m so sick of this game being money drivin. It seems the only way I’m going to progress is if I spend my real money and that’s just not going to happen. When I first started playing I bought premium and few diamonds and that’s IT! The game is just no longer fun to me anymore and stresses me out more than anything!
Response to developers.
by Gottti79 on 2020/10/17 00:41
So I was asked for my input to make the game better. Ok. Let’s start with the problems. Any other game you play if you focus you can upgrade at a decent pace. Unlike here you get a building to level 4-5 and you’re taking anywhere from a day to two days to upgrade. For low level buildings? Seriously? So now you want for a player with a competitive nature to spend $10 for 1100 gems that will not satisfy an upgrade to a level 3-4 building. Option buy a $20 and get 2500 gems. Oh wait you want to have extra builders to upgrade faster well you have to buy that too. While you’re at it here are a dog and cat you can buy that do absolutely nothing. So now if you want to rush you “forcefully” have to spend money. Not to mention if you go into a tournament you’re not placed in your certain power level you’re fighting people with higher your level, higher your stats and higher hero’s. Just as fun as a hole in the head. You guys have algorithms that can pick up if a character is 4 stars and offer packs to upgrade them but you really have to ask a player “talk to us so we can improve the game” what a joke. This game has been out how long? (Deinstalled) I can buy a game from Xbox or PlayStation and get more excitement.
the ads!
by mycousinbobby on 2020/01/10 04:40
this game is ALMOST perfect. I’m really into the build and manage a neighborhood-type games, and usually the idea is good but in practice it’s clunky and relies too heavily on timed energy or in-app purchases. This game has enough going on that if you’re waiting on one task, you have a few more to do in the meantime. and it’s completely playable without spending any money. and it’s legitimately fun, I like the level of customization it provides. BUT!!! almost every time I watch an ad in exchange for a game gift (resources, unlocking one of the ad-fueled chests, etc) it’ll play the entire ad and then freeze and force me to restart, losing the reward, or just go back to the main screen like normal yet still not dole out the reward. it’s super annoying and is an unnecessary handicap! and I can’t access the chest unlocked with ads because they refuse to log! please fix this :(
Really unfortunate
by Tate 66 whoop on 2020/12/17 02:18
Initially when I downloaded this game, it was on a whim. It looked fun, and don’t get me wrong... it was.. at first. With games like this there seems to be a pattern; the game is fair up until about mid-way in. After that, you can really start to see how greedy it’s creators actually are, and how little they care about their players. The unfortunate thing is though... that these devs, along with all others who share in this sense of greed, don’t seem to understand that behavior like this will only serve to spread poor reputation - which in the long run means that despite starting off strong, their creation will eventually end bitterly once people realize how low grade their games progression system really is. If only they understood that valuing their customers and putting effort into creating a game EVERYONE could enjoy would result in a widely loved, popular game with an indefinite lifespan that would ultimately bring in MORE income and funding then a game run by greed ever could. The best games in the world are where they are because they listen to what their players think, and care about their enjoyment. Maybe take a lesson from them and stop trying to fill your pockets with cash as fast as possible? You’re just screwing yourselves over in the end.
Recent update loot chests are horrible
by Blackholehog on 2018/03/04 20:01
Awesome game, I check in to collect and build resources multiple times a day in order to make sure I'm giving myself (f2p) the best chance I have against p2p, the devs have made this game manageable to play for free unlike some other games with in-app purchases. One downer though, RECENT UPDATE LOOT CHESTS ARE HORRIBLE. Chests from fighting off invasions used to give decent rewards such as mid-level cooking, alchemist, woodworking treasury, mining an sometimes fighter gear as well as coins and wood usually. I fought off 10 invasions earlier and 8 out of the 10 basic loot chests gave out only coins. The reason I do the invasions is to get uncommon gear through loot chests to be able to craft rare and eventually epic weapons/armor. If the devs are going to start being greedy with what they allow loot chests to provide I will cease to continue playing this game. P2p don't need even more of an advantage against f2p, they can already be much lower levels than you and come to your castle and defeat you. Other than that I do really enjoy this game and hope this issue can be resolved
General, Events, and PVP
by hkkhwidveual on 2020/01/31 01:34
Firstly, the game is enjoyable and has a lot of potential to be great. There are however a few issues that I have been running into. These issues are annoying enough to make me want to delete the game. In the PVP arena, I believe that I have only had a hand full of matches that were fairly ranked since I’ve started playing. Currently I’m around 200k power rating and I’m being placed against opponents that are over 2.5 times mine. Which would not be so terrible if it didn’t take over 5 mins to complete one arena. The amount of time it take and the matchmaking is ridiculous. Now this winter event that is taking place currently. I’ve put thousands of gems and dozens of free spins with nothing really to show for it. Even had the same exact reward (like a poison spell) over and over again. I don’t just mean getting it the majority of the time. I’m talking about spinning three times and each spin was the same reward. In my opinion it’s horrible odds and infuriating, especially using gems. As a side note, the Angry Birds advertisement needs to be fixed. After watching it kicks me out of the game and locks me from watching another video to get the reward.
They only want money!!
by Derm1121 on 2019/11/10 00:53
I have had this app for a while now and the times I’ve had problems, the developers acted very uninterested in fixing them. I spent $10 on in-app purchases because I enjoyed it so much at first and apparently once they find out you will spend money, they make it almost impossible to move on in the game without doing so. I have set up another game on a different device to see if this is actually the case and that game has moved forward faster and further than the one I spent money on. My castle is constantly up for attack so I can’t save any resources to upgrade it without purchasing diamonds. On the other device, it’s only vulnerable once in a great while. Also, the algorithm used for the tournaments is severely flawed. I have not been able to even place in a tournament in a long time. They fail to address the problem and continue to state that it is working just fine. Once again, on the other device, I have placed first in quite a few tournaments. I wish they would make an honest game where you weren’t forced to make a purchase after finding out you WILL spend money. Shame, I would’ve considered this one of the beat games on the market if they didn’t act like crooks.
Not worth your time
by Wielder13 on 2019/05/14 15:33
Imagine a game with a great concept, then have it structured very badly, and you get this. It’s starts off smooth and fun, but by the end of the first couple of chapters, the grind sets in. And the pay to play really comes to the forefront. Want to grind to get rare items, sure, you can do that, but it won’t help. The game uses an adjusted development to try and keep you on equal footing with other players, BUT, if they pay, they get a decidedly unfair advantage. I played this for sometime, and ran into many in game play issues. Resources become more and more exponentially off balance the further you develop. Making game play harder, and money more important. I’m all for paying games to help the ones I enjoy, but this one is pointless. Nothing is permanent. Rare artifact? Useless the moment you level up the throne and move up to the next tier. Premium account? Not really a thing. It’s temporary at best. The one in game bug I had involving credits was resolved fairly quickly, and that is about the only good thing I can say about this game. Sorry folks, don’t bother with this one. Much better clones of this style of game are out there. Also, don’t be fooled by the rating... I’ve seen negative reviews vanish from this site.
Support is a joke. It’s all about $.
by Xalerion on 2018/12/14 18:40
Support will often ignore your question and provide a cookie cutter unrelated answer and close the ticket. Ask for clarification? You get a cookie cutter response saying it was already answered and you get ignored. Watch ads, perform a transaction, but didn’t get what you were supposed to? Too bad. Want to participate in an event but it pairs you up against someone several tiers above you at twice the power level (260k more power) where it is impossible to defeat one of their people much less all 5 or 6? Too bad. But... you can spend money to buy diamonds to speed up the building of your barracks, trainer fighting room, leveling your fighter levels, building the three crafting buildings, speeding up the crafting of the 5 items for each of your people, and then you might be on equal ground where you have a chance of winning (until you get paired up against someone insurmountable again and have to shell out more if you want to participate in the “free” event). Don’t waste your time. That is how it is intended to work per the support who say they consulted with the developers who agree. They don’t care. Don’t give them your time or money.
Repetitive, misleading game trailer
by BobCrabmm on 2020/02/01 06:02
Yeah, the interesting and fun looking games shown in the pop/up trailer which enticed me to play the game any in the game. Also, be prepared to spend enough for a brand new PlayStation to beat this thing. There is no way to getting ahead is to constantly buy weapons, super wizards, whatever. Wanna upgrade a room that is essential to move up in the game? That will take 4 days(real time). Just use some magic diamonds to speed it up! Not enough diamonds? Enough diamonds to get it built on time are “on a special deal! Only $4.99. Now just repeat this for infinity and you can be up there with the other clowns who spent an incredible amount of cash to play a game which is basically an infinite maintenance game like the sims or any other iteration skinned as theme park owners, pirates, taco stand entrepreneurs, zombie whatever’s blah blah blah.. Take the time and money and read a mind bending book(or 20), buy a guitar, learn it, save up for a car, learn to juggle, get a girl/boyfriend and have fun sex and fall in love, or, aim low and at the very least just buy a nice video game system and a few games instead of playing this crumby excuse for throwing time and money in the trash.
Great game
by PowerPugh88 on 2019/07/19 22:28
This game is very fun to play. It has just the right amount of details and side missions without getting too lost in what this game was all about. I have been playing since NOV 18 and I am only a lvl 33. You will have to spend a big huge amount of money or you will have to spend a huge amount of time to go to the top of the leader boards. The equipment is general very random and has a good chance of getting better stuff if you are willing to spend money on buying diamonds to open chests to get them. If I had to make any adjustments, it would be to add some type of armor or weapon upgrade feature. Or if you end up getting over your level items, having a feature to drop the level of that item to your current level. I also have a problem with there not being any black people or other ethnic groups in the game. There is a black guy in the opening screen but not in the game. It would be a lot cooler if there were mixed races.
Pretty Good
by M Sev on 2021/04/24 15:41
All in all it’s a solid game with a lot to do and a lot to work on. The only problem I’ve ever had in the placements for the arena system. Don’t get me wrong it’s frustrating losing, but that’s not the issue. If you do manage to place in the top 3 out of 10. You immediately get thrown against people that are 100 times better than you and you stay there for a bit of time. The game doesn’t make it harder it makes it impossible. I don’t mind losing if I can work my way back up, but if I get punished for placing in the top 3. Why am I not going anywhere when the last 17 arenas I’ve been at the very bottom? With 0 wins out of 5 or I get 1 win out of 5 and the rest is impossible. It’s very frustrating that I can only place 1 out of 30 or 40 arenas and the rest that I don’t place is impossible for me to even scratch the surface. Rewrite the algorithm for the placement in arenas please.
Good in the beginning...
by drock001 on 2019/03/28 17:48
When starting the game it’s fun.. and it’s equal.. then as you get higher up it becomes almost distorted in the way that you can seemingly attack players that are equal or lower skill level and always seem to lose... its almost as if they want you to spend money so you can buy more or better equipment so you can beat the players you are already significantly ahead of skill level wise... and then still lose to the people who are higher then you.. been playing for about 3 months and loved it until I have gotten to this point.. when complaining about how it doesn’t seem right... they respond with.. we can’t give strategic information out.. so I decided to change all strategies and equipment and what do you know.. same outcome. Really enjoyed the game but obviously at this point it’s quite frustrating since I can’t beat the people above me who are most likely bots and also can’t beat the people who are below me unless I pay to get better equipment. Anyways anyone who plays this game I wish you luck! Try not to get to irritated with it! -Derek
Extremely slowly progressive game, typical pay to win
by Mayham80 on 2019/01/26 15:57
First the good points, the graphics and gameplay action is good. The potential for being a great game is there but not as of now. Now the bad points, typical pay to win. The upgrades are extremely slow and can last days unless you spend diamonds to build instantly which requires a lot of money, to get good items requires real money or a lot of diamonds and the items you do get are always for mages. In game fighting is set at 1x speed and can not be sped up unless you purchase premium biweekly or monthly package (in-game fighting speed should always be changeable in standard game play!). All resources very slow to gain and can also pay to increase. Customer support very unhelpful, won’t admit or help when reporting glitches. Unless you plan on playing this game for years or paying ridiculous amounts of money just to be strong enough to keep up with other players, really don’t recommend. Plenty of other games out there that benefit non paying players, more evenly.
Unique “City Builder” Management Sim
by Lord Travis on 2018/10/07 16:02
There are a ton of stupid city building games in the vein of clash of clans that are all clones with little to offer the genre. Hustle Castle is something different for a change! Each production room of your castle needs to be manned by a villager that you either rescue or create through couples in the living room (G rated baby magic). Those villagers each have stats that can be modified with items, so there’s some strategy in determining who should be a warrior, treasurer, food producer, scientist, etc... It has goofy characters and art similar to Family Guy. I’ve played about a week and haven’t felt disappointed. There is a competitive pvp mode that I am sure paid players have an advantage, but you can jump right into joining a clan and get assistance with little things and learn the game. I cannot give 5 stars because there’s no such thing as a perfect game. But otherwise decent fun and unique take.
Money pit
by Clire111 on 2020/09/05 04:10
The last event they had was $20 for a pass for the *chance* to spend diamonds to win prizes. Diamonds also cost money. In the past buying the pass and grinding in the game 10-12 hours of game play per day would get you all of the items but not for this last event. Huuuge waste of money even putting the $20 in to unlock some rewards. Some of the rewards for this event was the chance to spend more money. I also had frequent issues in gem bay where my fighters would all make it to the next round and when I was taken out to the open queue my fighters were dead even though they were clearly not. When this was brought up the mods told me it was a glitch on my end and not a system error at all which also lost my points toward the event. Waste of time and money, they are losing players very quickly. Not to mention that there are tons of bots in the game and it is almost impossible to set up a good squad for arena anymore. I used to have a very good set up and would more often than not place top 3 now I’m lucky to win a battle or 2 per tournament.
Need money to win
by BEER CHICK on 2019/02/05 19:48
This is the time of year when suicide rates are high. The stress from the holidays still linger, while the added stress of a new year makes it even worse. I am writing to you because of the fragile state that I am in, I am pleading for you to understand my plight! Suicide is an epidemic in the United States, there have been many this month in my town alone. What I don’t think gaming companies, like yours, understand is that people like me turn to you for help. We turn to our gaming systems to cope with the failures of real life, in order to find something that boosts our confidence and self worth. Playing this game has been making me depressed and feel inadequate lately. I have tried asking for your help with why the game is like this but I received a blanket statement response about the arena matches. And my questions were left unanswered. What my point is here is that you are ruining the point of these games. These games are supposed to pass the time with fun and a bit of challenge for thrill seekers. It isn’t supposed to leave you defeated and hopeless. I hope someone cares..
Pay to play
by Avid Warrior on 2020/09/15 07:20
It’s fun when you start but as you progress you’ll need to spend money to advance enough to complete. It’s definitely a pay to play scam game. They promise big prizes in their special events they require money buy-in’s to win anything decent but use terms like “you might get” to justify why you paid into an event but didn’t get the prizes they offered unless you spend more money to buy extra chest well beyond the quests they give you. When you ask questions to customer support they send you vague generic answers that don’t help at all. Their battle matching is terrible and you’ll end up in battles with teams 10x your strength in arena battles which slows progress down. The game is designed to excite you at the beginning but as you start to get further along it will just push you into needing to add more money to get you a little further. As you progress the game will take longer to get anywhere and will become frustrating. If you’re not ready to waste money on a game I recommend searching for a different game to play. This ones a money pit scam
From 0 to ALOT...
by Immortality_101 on 2019/04/16 12:33
Hustle castle is fun and pretty easy at first, but after leveling up your throne room a few times the price of things SKYROCKET! This caught me very of guard, and is now really annoying. I have all my troops as level 20 fighting, but then I start getting better weapons and I can’t afford to upgrade my training room! And to upgrade it, I need to upgrade gold storage, which and 30,000 gold. The gold production in my castle is 👎👎👎. And guess what, I can afford to upgrade that either. Another problem I’ve noticed was that sometimes if I watch an ad, I don’t get any reward, and when I click on it all it says is “waiting for ad network to respond”. This mixes with another problem of the price of battles. After a bit, the apples needed to do a battle is in the thousands! This is just a few annoying problems, but it’s still a fun game.
Fun to a point
by kdmcE on 2021/07/23 14:19
Fun game, I really enjoy it. I am leader of a clan and that is where my major frustration comes in. If you find a player you would like to get in your clan, there is no way to contact them. Want to talk to one person in the clan, have to do it publicly in clan chat, as there is no other way to talk. Game needs to give players a mail system that allows us to privately talk to other players like other games do. I can’t ask people questions as by the time they come online, it may be lost in chat many messages above. If you could message them, they would be able to see it and respond more easily. Recruiting would be easier also, and warning players about to be kicked would stop any embarrassment at being called out publicly. Other than that, events are fun with good rewards, matchups are part of the strategy it seems,and sometimes it works other times you are pitted against monsters and there is no way to win.
Growing to despise the game
by Blake1140 on 2020/03/31 06:31
At first I loved the game, but as time went on I learned that you can only progress so long until you have to start spending real money to continue growing stronger. You will be unable to go far in events, become a strong player, or even properly participate in the game without spending hundreds of dollars. If you enjoy spending your hard earned money on real things, this is not the game for you, avoid it before you get committed and tempted to waste cash. Besides being a pay to win game without saying so in the description (come on game developers, don’t scam people like that), it is also an overall frustrating experience. In the Arena you will be matched with people far stronger then you most of the time, you won’t get to the end of the gem bay without using all your diamonds, and you won’t be able to play for very long at a time because you don’t get many resources unless you, yes. Spend real money. I look forward to the day when we can play games without our financial situation being relevant to our success in the virtual world.
Pay to play or find your fun elsewhere
by LandSeaCow on 2019/03/21 18:13
As other reviewers have said, this is a pretty solid game to begin with... but as it progresses, you NEED to shell out money in order to stay competitive with online features (other players). The game consistently pits you against other players with similar levels, not similar power levels, which means you’ll soon find that tournaments, raiding other castles clan battles & additional features/levels are next to impossible to even attempt to be mediocre at, b/c you’ll be way outmatched by those who don’t mind the extra hit to their wallet (lucky them). So you’ll have to grind a lot, and I mean A LOT, to get the resources and rewards necessary to power up your team b/c your rewards are based off your performance. Low performance (i.e. low power score) = low rewards (i.e. staying with a low power score) Wish this game focused more on micro transactions being a way to enhance the game for those willing to pay more, rather than micro transactions as a prerequisite to enjoy the whole game.
Hmmmm
by Zequeth on 2018/04/22 18:42
This is a relatively fun game by itself good challenge. Decent story. However it is definitely a pay to play & pay to win type of game. At the beginning it seemed relatively easy to understand even children can play it, however when you start leveling the missions and players get progressively harder and they game almost forces you to pay money to get any kind of advantage. or to just be on equal footing. There is limited space in the castle so one cannot really build there dream castle in my opinion. If you have a child playing this game make sure you pay attention because if they have your credit card you may be getting some surprise charges to it LOL. But again the story is half decent and has some funny moments so that is why gave it a middle score. If I was not so much a pay to play and pay to win type game I would’ve given it a five. If you want a game similar to this I would recommend fall out shelter it is a older game but just as fun
Balance
by Teura Nahoko on 2020/12/04 15:31
The game is so off balance, you want to just move on. No point in playing if you reach a point where you are attacked by players many times your level, and they take 30% or more. It should be closer to fighting within the level your at. To much is given to players are willing spend. You have to have both non-paying and paying. It’s not going be paying players that draw in more players, it’s non-paying that will. And their going spread to other players if the game is worth the time.. spread little honey and you will attract more bees. You will make money, someone will always will pay. If you make the game enjoyable for non-paying players you find in time you get them to spend as well. Way is now, get only those eager to spend and not the true players. Wish there way to delete the account, for my castle will be farmed for resources regardless if I delete the game, and this game requires you spend money if you want to advance your people. This game is one you should avoid and for what you get if spend money it’s not worth it.
Love it but starting to resent it
by Watching_the_world_go_by on 2020/01/21 21:37
This is a great game......up to a point. They get you hooked building your castle and spending so much time investing into developing your people and castle....it is a grind but one you enjoy. Then it gets to a point that unless you spend money....your progress grinds to a halt. But you feel compelled to buy resources because of your time investment. You’re constantly being invaded by people who have purchased those resources, and beaten. It becomes a game based on what you’re willing to spend vs your skill and strategy. You can easily become successful if you purchase the resources but if not....the grind no longer becomes fun and game becomes monotonous and boring because of lack of progress and the days it takes for building to be completed......but if you just purchase those diamonds to get things done faster it’s great! (Sigh) .......and that’s the part that makes me no longer want to play. Don’t like feeling manipulated.
In app purchases

I really enjoy this game and decided I would purchase a rather large amount of diamonds to progress with my castle. I never received my diamonds and my credit card was charged. I immediately contacted the app to create a ticket for my issue and because there was only a generic ROBO type response, I created a second ticket for the same issue. One ticket was closed due to the fact I had created 2 tickets ( in a rather timely manner) and not even a single response to any of my comments on the original ticket. If anyone else is having an issue with in app purchases, Apple was able to refund account and resolve my issue immediately. This is just bad customer service on part of the developers of the app. I followed all directions needed for them to resolve my issue and was even willing for them to just dump my diamonds into my app. Developers please fix whatever bug might do this to another customer and please make sure that issues are being resolved promptly !!
Fun game BUT.....

I’m going to start this review out on a positive note and say that I have really enjoyed playing this game! I have been able to meet plenty of people that just want to have fun with the game as well which has been great. But that being said if you are going to play the game don’t go above throne room 7. The reason for this is because once you get passed that level you will and I mean will have to pay to play (at least if you want to stay competitive). I don’t mind spending the occasional 20 here and there on the game but I don’t want to spend 50 or more every week to have fun with the game. I also don’t like the way they set up the arena, when I am in there the next closest person to me is at least 150k more powerful than I am ps I am TR8 currently which is why I said stay at 7. Maybe if they can fix this then the game could be a bit more fun but until that time stay low power and just sit back and relax at 7.
Money grabber

There is no shame with these developers, the game is free to play but the last 5 updates added in features that cost diamonds which is money in the game and although you are rewarded 1 diamond here and 4 there the majority of anything good costs thousands of diamonds pvp and pve match making is extremely flawed, where you don’t stand a chance unless you spend money. They have special events and awards but those all cost money, they try to hype it up but saying you might get a pet from a chest but the pet is totally useless and does nothing what so ever. The latest update is changing the way your game looks but yup more diamonds more money, and if you do pay your cash you are competing with thousands of others who have spent thousands...the game is fun to play, free to play to win you gotta pay...and the developers just give you cut and paste dry answers with any questions... all in all this game is nothing more than a costly wallet draining time losing distraction that’s not worth the effort or the time. Avoid at all costs or it will cost you.
They try to make harder players job to spent more

They release the Clan territory after 2 years and after first week, they start messing up with it. First of all, low tr level players are punished pretty bad. They cannot get fair coins compare to higher lvl players. I am talking about 1% of high lvl players. They just want you lvl up fast then spent real money to catch up with others. Second part they put some useful clan building such as hunter neighborhood. First of all, clans, admins have the control who will use it. It is totally fine but then they also put a cool down time on it. Most of players spend 3-4 hours of their time in a day to play the game and they have to wait to use this benefit. Especially local clans will have huge problem. Because people try to play this game after work and all clan members will try to play on the same time. Developers only think about money and not consider players need. If you are rich and want to spent your time, start this game, otherwise, find something else that provides better service.
Please read this suggestion!

I’ve looked through the reviews and it gets worse, you should really add an update on the arena. It’s good and all but it's annoying that most of the time you’ll get paired up with squads more stronger than you, one time I was in a tournament where almost every single player had a squad power of 100,000+ and you know what’s worse? I only had the squad power of 97,000+ I barely won any matches and most of the players had beaten me with ease, I have a suggestion where you could have choose how much squad power do you want your opponents to be, or if you could just check the amount of power the player (as in you) has and pair them with opponents of a fair amount. Like seriously! You’d almost have to pay to win in-order to win most tournaments and it’s frustrating to most newbies and players who’ve been playing for months. In the conclusion of this review/rating; PLEASE MAKE THE TOURNAMENTS FAIR!
Stay far away

So I started this game 32 days ago and invested about 700 dollars in that time to advance. I learned that this software developer lives by their name as “HUSTLE CASTLE” they hustle the consumer by force lost of matches. I have reported them to the better business bureau and I feel developers in this nature should not be allowed in iTunes and should be investigated upon for unfair and violation of privacy and said agreement and apple should be placing such apps in iTunes. As now I struggle to get my money back and have to go through legal matters steaming from playing this game. I’ve experienced a lot of bait tactics definitely in their tournament game play. I’ve even experienced a team battling me and losing against me and minutes later going against the same team that lost against me just to lose against them right after. It’s a software developer hustle to force the consumer out of money and is in violating if the consumers right of fair play. Stay away from this one... good game if you want to spend thousands to just be undercut by developer scandals
Good and bad
by jgirl897 on 2019/06/02 20:17
Bad and awful When u are watching the battle 1x is literally like u put it on slow mo. It’s like u really have to freaking pay to win or to have good eq in this game like seriously plz change that. And I hope y’all can have better events. For example the summer events is like 1 in a million chance of getting the runes. I personally like the unicorn event better way better than any other event. I hope u can I’d more events like the unicorn event, this game is getting more and more ridiculous with the way they try to get the money. Good/ and awesome Well, in this game u can talk to a lot of people you don’t even know. Although there are a lot of idiots in the global chat. Global chat is still fun especially all the drama that happens, lol. And talking about the clan, I personally like clans because the members helps you grow. What the point of a clan of u don’t talk with each other? Like....anyways in the arena I get last place almost ever again time, lol. I hope you can include tips and tricks to get better placing a in arena. Yeah, I know i talked a lot sorry about that. I love this game it’s just that sometimes y’all are just all about the money likeee......anyways that’s all I have to say. Have a great day😁. I just noticed I just a whole essay, lol. Ok bye.
Terrible customer support.

I purchased some wolf tokens using the diamonds, a total of 6k. I thought I would be able to purchase the artifact, but that wasn’t the case. It doesn’t explain that you have to purchase the other groups first before you can get the artifact. Once I made the purchase that’s when it told me I had to buy the others first. Had I known I would’ve continued to save them. I requested my diamonds back and for them to get the wolf token back no problem. I didn’t spend those wolf tokens. I’ve been saving those diamonds for quite sometime waiting to purchase a nice artifact. This is the only game I play on my phone practically everyday or even spend real money on. So if you would please refund my the diamonds. They stated, “We totally understand your frustration over this situation, however, reverting successful in-game transactions goes against our policies....As stated earlier, we cannot provide assistance on the matter.”. They provided no help, no options, just a copy and paste answer.
The game is good but is frustrating at times
by Zombies 935 on 2021/07/19 17:18
I’ve been playing this game daily and I’ve reached the point where I’ve needed to have a few million coins to upgrade. Getting the first million is no problem but once I reach two million it’s like I’m enemy number one. I’ll put my phone down for a few hours and find that I’ve been attacked 6-7 times and everyone steals 2-3 thousand gold putting me back into the hundreds. I’ve had to hoard daily resource chests and watch the daily ads to earn diamonds so I can afford upgrades since it’s extremely rare for me to earn enough to afford them on my own. The I’ve had to grind to get the premium memberships so I’m able to produce enough gold to afford it. It’s ridiculous on how much production is for regular players as compared to those who cough up the money to get it. It would be fine if it was double but ten times the amount?
Fun!

This is a lot more fun than fallout shelter. I really do enjoy playing this game. But I have to agree with someone else. Early on you can fight against people but later once someone has paid money and has better outfits, people etc then there's no way possible to win against them without paying yourself. UNLESS they make it possible where you get matched up with other non-playing players. Then it's fair. Overall the game is quite fun to kill time and enjoy. I have come across a bug though. I was playing all day yesterday fine, but today every time I'm in a battle whether I win or lose it gets stuck. Basically saying I am offline and I am not. I can pop up any other game, app etc on my phone and it is working fine. When I try to reload the game it won't even load. Hope this gets fixed.
Where’s the hustle in Hustle Castle?

At first, it’s an enjoyable game that has kingdom building aspects with a nice fighting function, and an aesthetically pleasing art style. However, in less than half a day of play time, it develops into a pay to advance/win game. After your throne advances to level 4, you’re stuck waiting a day and a half for build times just to advance your army. The ad watchers chest that gives you commons after 5 ads definitely isn’t worth it, and reducing the time by 30min by watching an ad doesn’t really help when your wait time is 16 hours. With the build timers, I won’t be able to advance in the game for a day and a half without spending money, so I doubt this is something I’ll play a lot, but it’ll be fun to come back to every few days and check up on. What could’ve been an amazing experience fell drastically short to a mediocre one.
Nothing Like the Advertisements
by RVARealtor on 2019/11/29 15:22
I’d Maybe give this 4 stars if it weren’t for the fact the only thing that enticed me to play this in the first place were the advertisements— which, the gameplay you see in the ads, isn’t even in the game! Still, very fun game. You are Heavily incentivized to sit through numerous ads multiple times a day. That part Blows, but I get it. Free game- need to make your money somewhere. I spent nothing other than time, and still had a fun time playing. I eventually deleted the game. Found I was spending too much time playing. Again, fun game. There are times you will be matched in arena play where you’re the weakest, but keep maxing your squad before leveling up your throne and you’ll soon find yourself back on top again. I’d recommend at least giving this game a try— could be 4 stars, but I hate the sleazy way they got me here.
Game is nice but continues to take my money.

I have tried to purchase the premium add on at least 4 different times and Apple withdraws the money out of my account but I don't get anything in the game. Contacted support showing screenshots and transaction ids and they literally said, we'll we didn't receive the money so there's nothing we can do. Then contacting apple which says because it is an In-app- Purchase, the only one that can provide service is the developers. My problem is that if you guys didn't get the money that shouldn't hinder the customer. If the customer can prove that they sent the payment through the host the problem is between the Dev and host (apple) not the customer. I wasted $27 and all i can get is a my apologies but because we didn't get the money you don't get the product even after numerous times. Smh sucky customer service. Sucky chain of command. And sucky compassion for the games prime players.
