hustle castle: Kingdom wars
Description
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?
Addictive

A good game honestly no cap but I’m here because of a wizard hypnotized me with his pet frog.
Aggravated.
by ticky tavey on 2020/11/29 16:54
Fun game. I keep getting kicked off line during fights and tournaments. Aggravated.
BEST GAME EVER
by KingHustleFan on 2020/11/26 03:16
I started to play and at the start I liked it so thank you creator
Fun game, but needs improvement.
by jsa9 on 2020/11/25 07:57
There is a bug in the update. Whenever you lose to the monsters in Mysterious Signs, it doesn’t take you to the results screen, instead it freezes with music playing and I have to restart it to continue. I’m not sure if this occurs in other missions. Other than that, it’s a fun game. Be prepared for the ads though, as there are quests that you can do that involve watching ads. The only thing that bothers me is you have to spend money in order to get far in the game. Diamonds cost money, and you will have to grind more often just to get your army to top shape. In app purchases are common in this game, so keep that in mind before you download this.
Playing for years now
by zzccbbff on 2020/11/24 13:27
I absolutely love the upgrades gem bay, heroes, clan neighborhood, and the ability to watch ads in tourney and portal. Thanks for keeping it good for the everyday player.
Bring money or quit
by HoofHearted13 on 2020/11/21 00:11
Progress in the game is impossible unless you spend a lot of money after an initial fun few days. Same old bait and switch you find in most of these “free” games.
Trash customer support
by The Shivva on 2020/11/20 14:30
The game is ok but customer support is garbage.. current event stop giving me cards and I’ve completed a butt load of task and defeated castles..and no way to contact or creat a ticket.. all it says common answers to some problems
Must Spend Money
by eur0travels on 2020/11/17 15:35
This game makes you spend money to be any good and compete with other players.
Can I rate it 0 stars?
by Ethan4102983 on 2020/11/16 04:09
So just from opening this game I can see it’s false advertising. I’m not even going to play it. Their Snapchat ad shows a “Where’s my water” replica [Where’s my water would still be 1000% better if the game played as it did in the Snapchat ad] This is truly just a fake advertisement they put on Snapchat, I don’t see any part of the ad ANYWHERE on the app, and from the reviews I see, that the app is pay to play, puts a bad reputation on this company for me. I am never installing a game from this company.

Add gauntlets hustle castle plz
by Pandora759YT on 2020/11/14 15:29
This game is Good but it would be a lot better if it had a another story knife and also add cooler weapons like some gauntlets or powerful gloves
The better you get your opponents always get 3 times better.
by Iamdone2 on 2020/11/12 08:25
I upgrade and upgrade thinking this next set will be a winner, I try it works for a short time like a day than my opponents get much harder. It’s a circus really never ending.
Hmmm
by BigBadBair on 2020/11/11 06:26
I’m trying to figure out where all the black people are in the castle? Or are they hangin out just outside the walls. That must be it. They’re definitely around...
slow and expensive
by el_savastano on 2020/11/11 01:19
I’ve been playing this game for 1 year now and I am only at 1M squad power. We always have to pay so much money for diamonds, premium, goblin, upgrades or gear and it’s becoming redundant. Also, I often don’t get any rewards after watching ads (yes, completely). It’s more about waiting than playing... Thanks for fixing these issues! This game would be legendary otherwise :(
Carbord event update CRASHES
by Coasterbuf on 2020/11/10 06:15
Can’t even run the game now. It just crashes no matter what I do. Way to screw up my progress. Other people are complaining about it on Facebook too. Come on My.games. What did you guys DO? So frustrating. No need to contact my,games support (they are worthless BTW) as their update to their update fixed my problem 11/9/2020. Strangely their tech support people are out of the loop and completely unaware of this update’s existence. Which is why they are worthless. The company really needs to invest in better support and better communication to their staff.
Not able to get on
by Mvclowny on 2020/11/08 04:23
I love this game but ever since the new update I haven’t been able to play. It crashes as soon as you open the app. Is there something wrong or have the update been messed up.

Make It Queer
by FourgeC. on 2020/11/06 23:20
Want so more Queerness to it. Maybe add to the baby-making mechanic, like an additional marriage and family bonus. Add surrogacy option to the mix of baby making. Maybe add housing around the castle for additional workers to live in, where maybe the families could move to and offer unit bonuses from. Queers—we’re everywhere!😜
A guy who enjoys the game
by kaijjj1 on 2020/11/06 11:06
Why is there a black guy on the cover when he isn’t accessible on the game.
Omg best game!!! ❤️❤️
by nyawinslow on 2020/11/04 19:13
Ok so this game is so good! I have never had a bad experience from this game! You get this really cool and funny storyline and you get this little chat log in game where the in game bosses have like a little Facebook page! If you ever have a problem with someone saying something in the clan or world chat you can just use there version of reporting! You don’t need to by anything they have events so you can earn them your self!
Cool work game.
by BigALCali82 on 2020/11/03 19:43
When I’m at work, this game helps me throughout the day.
Best game ever
by Crawdad67 on 2020/11/01 15:30
I mean I like a lot of games, but this games is quite fun it is a fun game to play when you are bored or have free time and you can really play it all the time and some parts of it are waiting and waiting, but some you can just keep playing and not stop. I would personally always download this game really fun you should check it out.
This game is a long dull drag
by OGREZILLA on 2020/11/01 11:26
I have been playing this game for to long and only gets worse and harder over time. Geared way to much towards pay to win and you still lose. I was a maxed bases with 7 dwellers at 100 in full ancient sets and losing to 6 fighters 3 at 100 and 3 in the 70s with out full gear. 6 millions squad power lower then mine. Game is glitched to help lower fighter. It’s such a waste of time to upgrade and play this game. Highly recommend investing in a different game. In response to devs. You’re right I don’t get how having less gear and lower level fighters help you win. Total game flaw in my opinion. What’s the point of adding souls and jewelry to fighters if others do better with out it. Again the game play is so messed up it makes the game unfair and aggravating to play.
Slow but good
by hyddheueh on 2020/10/30 04:09
In the training place it goes super slow but over all it’s a pretty good game.
Great format
by Kirakuro on 2020/10/29 07:18
Love how the game world is built and the story mode. Will there be more story expansions?
Scam
by kevinetran77 on 2020/10/27 16:15
This game is a scam! Be prepared to shell out tons of money. No matter how good you are or how much money you spend the game adjust to get harder so you just end up spending more money.
I is a good game
by progan 83 on 2020/10/27 00:52
I wish you made a game called knights vs goblins like this game PLEASE
Fair and competitive
by "The Farts" on 2020/10/23 15:17
Despite what some reviews state you can easily compete and have fun without investing money. If you don’t want to buy upgrades there is definitely fun strategy involved in upgrading your castle. You will still have plenty of opportunities to collect unique and legendary gear that allow you to compete with the players who pay for upgrades. The game updates with new events fairly regularly too so new opportunities will always arise. Have fun!
Addicting and fun BUT...
by dancehamsta on 2020/10/23 14:05
The only complaint I have is level matching with PVP or the fact that someone with literally a million squad points can raid your castle. I’ve spent so much time saving up gold so that I can upgrade a room only for someone 5 times my strength to come steal 100k or more of my gold. That being said, The game is fantastic and I love that you can do things in this game that you can’t in most. Also getting diamonds is pretty easy and I like that you can win the premium pass for 3 days sometimes.
So awesome
by RL graham on 2020/10/21 21:47
This game is cool that I joined my favorite YouTuber’s clan. I like getting more coins and food and wood and more. I like fighting in the adventure map, the arena, and many more that I can’t get off this game app. It would be sooooooooooooo cool that this would get a awesome dinosaur event in the hustle castle future and there would a new Dino background for the castle!!!
There’s good and bad to this game.
by Rocnewyork on 2020/10/19 19:27
This game is actually incredible. It will keep you busy for hours. There is a lot going on in this game. From making weapons to fighting tournaments, the building your castle it’s a great game. There are a few downsides to this game. One is you definitely eventually have to spend money. My biggest problem is people can literally screw you in the dungeon. To start a journey in the dungeon you have to use food or torches. Torches will make sure you get a box after beating a boss. Food doesn’t. The problem with this is you have to play with another player. So if you start a game and spend food or a torch and the person playing with you decides to leave before you start you lose whatever you used to play ie torch or food. Torches can be won but you can also buy them. We should NOT be losing stuff we paid for before it can even be used. We should be given back what we lose if no battles are fought on a journey. Also some people don’t know how to play. They go in die once and leave. Again the other player loses when someone does that. Amazing game truly has become one of my favorites. Like any game there are flaws but hopefully some of them get fixed. Keep up the good work developers
Tournaments make 0 sense
by Kil0o on 2020/10/17 21:20
I’m at 350k power and it continually matches me with all 1000k+ power players after waiting for 20 to 30 minutes to even get into it. And the event tells me I have to defeat player in the Tournaments. I regret buying the event token at this point.
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.
Love it

Micro purchases will destroy you
by doesn'tcareforthis on 2020/10/10 18:41
If you don’t become a premium subscriber, you will be chum for those that do. And being premium offers very little in terms of actual help. You can’t win, and at a certain point can’t even progress, without paying. I played daily for about a year, but got fed up at the point where all my progress for a day would be wiped by looters anytime I closed the game. Tournaments are rigged; I literally never won anything. The dungeon is a joke. Can’t get reward chests without beating bosses, but many rooms don’t even have bosses you can reach. So you only earn coins towards hero updates, but do so very, very slowly without paying for premiums. In addition to coins, you also need artifact fragments are randomly given out in chests, so that’s another way to slow progress and keep you at chum levels if you aren’t generating income for developers. About 50% of rewards are skins for your items that offer nothing helpful for play, just make things look different. And some of the skins won’t work with options you’ve selected. So you’ll have worked for hours and spent resources for absolutely nothing. It’s garbage. Contests are stacked in favor of those that pay for the premium passes, and those rewards compound in future contests and play. Basically, if you don’t plan to spend at least $10 per day after about level 20, you will be nothing but chum for wealthier players. I’m not saying the developers don’t deserve an income, but the game isn’t fun unless you’re shelling out major bucks. And the more you pay, the better you do. Don’t waste your time or your money on this cash grab.
Game good/ bad
by Jaylarue on 2020/10/05 15:08
Game is great in the beginning. Game will become impossible to progress endless you make cash purchases. Customer support is no help either.
No changes in tournaments
by waxshiy on 2020/10/04 16:31
When will you make tournaments fair? My level is 29 but always fighting against level 33s or over than it, I'm always the least leveled and weakest player there, do you think it is fair?
Eh
by MMelliC on 2020/10/04 15:42
There are no black or brown characters to play - they are just in advertisements. Game gets boring after a while if you aren’t paying.
Fun to a point.....
by nooooo o on 2020/10/04 01:34
This game was fun, until I started to progress, then it is absolutely pay to win. Don’t even start it, seriously.

I am enjoying the game. The male characters need some new looks. Maybe a guy who actually looks like he could be a knight or something.
BUGGY!!!!
by Buchtmann on 2020/10/01 21:36
I have to reinstall the game 3 times now playing for 2 months. Waiting on training and moving around castle, one peon got selected and I tried dropping him back with all of a sudden my two training 5 hours in LEFT TRAINING AT THE SAME TIME. When I finally got them back in they lost their training.... LOST HOURS OF TRAINING BECAUSE THE GAME IS BUGGY!!! Frustrating as hell and tournaments like everyone says is lackluster and rigged. Ads crash the game now and again. This game lets you speed up by ad watching. Not bad until it crashes your game. I’m just about at the point of uninstalling this game as it seems it’s in a beta version. So many other games that just aren’t as frustrating than this game and they seem to be a cookie cutter game as I’ve seen ads with almost identical layout. Game is honestly 2-3 stars. Anyone giving it 4 or 5 is full of it.
Don’t let these people screw you
by BigSnug on 2020/10/01 15:08
Sooooo after spending thousands and thousands of dollars over the past year the developers decided to ban my account. I’ve never cheated and done absolutely nothing wrong. I have one of the stronger accounts in the game and went to log in and they decided my account was to be no more. Don’t let these people screw you. If your not ready to throw away a bunch of money this game isn’t for you
Hope you never need anything
by 1984mandi on 2020/10/01 11:07
The support team for this app is a complete joke. They are not helpful and offer no solutions.
Fun. But shady in app sales
by Geahjib on 2020/10/01 10:26
So every once in a while this game gives you custom packages to buy. Some are straight forward like boss gear and certain settlers. But some make it seem like your buying a big bundle and you only end up getting one piece. They have a bundle called the jack of ALL trades. And as you scroll through what appears to be the contents of the bundle. It shows 4 different settlers all with corresponding gear for gold, mana cooking and wood cutting. And calling it the jack of all trades you would think you get all of them. But as you slide through what appears to be the complete list. The settler you are on at the time of purchase is the only 1 settler you get with gear. Everything else is forefit. So pay attention to the in app sales. Because they are misleading sometimes. Gonna dispute that one. And with the response I got from the dev. I have since lowered my rating of this game. Because the devs don’t give a sht. They just want your money.

by junketjunket on 2020/09/22 16:06
Hey developers you earned this review due to the current event! 65 cards and not a single rune! Are you serious? Anyone thinking of paying extra money for events don’t! It’s a rip off game promises to offer you rewards that you never get. Just a way for these people to pump more money from your wallets.

Clan Territory
by Hausofmeredith on 2020/09/17 08:16
The developers say there is uncertainty due to Covid-19 to release clan territory, the new content they promised 2 years ago. Yet there is no uncertainty when it comes to releasing monthly pay to win events. A lot of longtime players are leaving
Bait and Switch
by Disappointed in Hillcrest on 2020/09/17 05:31
If they are going to run ads they should be required to actually include game content. If you watch the ad and think that looks fun. This game has nothing shown in the ads.
Game developers are Cheaters and Swindlers
by mtt1960 on 2020/09/16 21:37
This game is addictive but you have to spend thousands of dollars to progress and they always change the rules so every time you think you’ve finally achieved something good the rules change again. Work to buy an artifact that works great for a few week then they turn the attributes off. Seriously don’t waste your time or money. Support is completely non-existent I WOULD GIVE IT ZERO STARS if I could!
Used to be fun, Now it’s horrible
by dex5661 on 2020/09/16 21:15
100%? Pay to play, events are fun but good look getting any of the unique items without having to pay. Even if you pay, the chances are so low of getting any of those unique items. Developers don’t ever listen to the players. I just quit the other day, save your money and time ... go elsewhere
Only can go so far
by PreppychickGM on 2020/09/15 20:50
I loved this at first, exactly what I thought I was looking for. I was addicted the first few days, spent some actual money. Then I hit a wall. It takes DAYS to earn enough resources to build, and I want a game that I can sit and play for an hour. Can’t do that anymore.
Pay to pay to pay
by Julu1988 on 2020/09/15 14:48
After a year or so I just do some daily grind. You don’t get much benefit unless you have about 200-300 per month to spend on events and diamonds. The clans are fun, enjoy the early growth but get out around 6 months if you don’t want a bad taste in your mouth.
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

Don’t play
by Amy Khuhro on 2020/09/08 07:08
I am a top 70’s regional player. I have loved the game, grind daily and over 22million in power. The events are rigged, artifacts don’t drop till you’ve hit 250 chest. I purchased over 300 dollars on this event and got to chest 190 and it would have taken another several hundreds of dollars to get to chest 300. Don’t play, the events are not worth it. Until I get good items out of the amount I spend to support the game, I’m Out!! BBB needs to get involved it’s what us gambling
Classic pay to win
by The one and only Oscar. on 2020/09/05 09:39
Grind all you want, spend countless hours building your squad up with the the best you can gather - a twelve-year-old with his mother’s credit card will outclass you in a day. Special events occur frequently with the “opportunity” to buy special items that will allow you to easily beat non-paying players; it is a competition of wallets, not skill. Waste your time with another “freemium” game - or not - it’s all the same. “Be a Rich Man” is the most powerful clan in this app - can you venture any guess as to why?
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.

Where to start??? Well it’s simple, if you don’t wanna spend money but actually just want to play then do t get this game. A person can have better soldiers and be a lower level and still win simply because they’ve spent cash. Not to mention if you don’t spend money and you don’t spend every waking second on the game people will constantly attack you and you lose tons of money that you’ve accumulated over time which in return makes it close to impossible to upgrade. I’ve been on this game for over a year and have spent maybe 5 dollars and still not max level. Good game and concept other than that. The execution of it caters strictly for people who pay. So not worth playing overall
Need to clarify whos purchasing stuff on their game.
by D_dog360 on 2020/09/04 05:34
They need some form of security for puchasing crap on this game. My kid keeps buying stuff off of it

Expensive and Disappointing
by Bobbykissmyass on 2020/09/03 14:47
While the camel is pretty good in the beginning it gets to be some what difficult an overly time consuming unless you wanna spend lots of money.

Get Hustled Castle
by CMoonUUA on 2020/09/02 04:58
This game is ok. It can pull you in but there’s a redundancy. To compete with other players you have to spend a lot of money. Saying that, this last event is why I’m deleting the game. After spending a certain amount of money I should have been able to get all the unique items but I never got the ones that were worth it. You’ll have to buy a bunch in app purchases for any and everything in the game. This game makes you think you’re the hustler, building your castle and fighters but really the creators are hustling you for the money in your wallet. I really wanted the T-Rex artifact in the Jurassic event it’s very disappointing to open 375 boxes and spend cash on the event to not get what you want. Send me the T-Rex artifact I’ll write a better a review.
Greedy
by tong514 on 2020/09/02 01:59
Good game but creators are greedy and make events impossible without spending big money
Bored
by Ladyluck811 on 2020/09/01 09:01
I’ve been having this game I think 2 years maybe more but I used to enjoy this game. Now it’s getting boring. The characters take too long to level up and they won’t level up automatically. The rooms are expensive there is no way you can save up 10,000,000 coins if you are getting raided all the time but you can’t blame the players cause that’s what you’re supposed to do. I blame the makers of this game to only think of money and put things so expensive so people would have to buy diamonds just to get their resources on what they need. It’s not fair to the community. Think of the players that have helped you make this game as an success cause remember if we didn’t play then....🤷🏽‍♀️

This game is fun but it is very unfair to players. You have to spend a lot of money to get your characters strong enough to compete. And even if you are strong they always pair you up with someone 10 times stronger than you so you will get your ass kicked anyway. The tournaments are a freaking joke. And when you attack somebody even if they are weaker than you sometimes you will loose. I played for a while but got really frustrated. So they will not get any more of my money. Don’t play this game unless you want to spend a lot of money.
Extreme pay to win
by Oidez on 2020/08/24 17:05
I don’t mind paying for a game but the most recent event required 8+ hours a day for 3 weeks and an extra 200-300 dollars to get all the items. Every event that comes out the price goes up. Selective offers 10 dollars for you 50 dollars for your friend for the same item. Try a different game
Been year. They need your money
by alansharan on 2020/08/20 04:24
I can totally relate to most of the reviews here. I understand they made the game to make money. But they have so many ads. I am sure they are making good money. If you have to grow, you need to spend $$!! Never came even a 10th in a tournament, gorget winning. Barely get hold of Legendary stuff. Most stuff I made it myself. I am deleting this app, as soon as I end this line. TY HC.
Lies
by Wog boy on 2020/08/19 20:05
The developers lied they said all pvp will be at even power levels but yet my acct gets hit regularly by other acts some with power levels 4 times mine a ploy to get you to spend money save your coin and don’t play this game
Ads Lied
by NASCAR fan man on 2020/08/19 00:35
So many ads for building bridges and get a poor clash of clans remake
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!
Absolute worst customer support!
by artfuldodger444 on 2020/08/17 19:06
It began as fun game but is now Pay-to-Play. If you have any game issue Customer Support will do everything to blame you and not resolve your issue. Choose another game, you will be happy you did.
Great game but....
by inkedmom0104 on 2020/08/17 01:23
I love this game so much but it drives me nuts that you have to wait days on things to upgrade! To try and use diamonds to do it is ridiculous too! I would definitely enjoy the game more if the wait times were better.
Fun game but careful with in app purchases
by Kouruu on 2020/08/11 22:37
It is a very fun and addicting game. However to get the most out of it, in app purchases would be required. They offer good deals but be careful when you select your purchases. Because if you make a mistake, you are stuck with that mistake. Customer service will not help you resolve it. Only tell you basically sorry, there’s nothing we can do. But thanks for your money though. I’m having to work with Apple for a refund now.
It’s just a tease
by grandpa retired on 2020/08/11 04:27
It is a fun game but I’m gonna delete it. I have spent too much money! Nothing free it was in the beginning but I’m stuck having to upgrade again. I have couple waiting to have the baby and now all the crap with stone or whatever it is. I put it on my phone. That was a mistake you can’t share. The goblins bought doesn’t last. I want some more free play it was fun. I’m deleting soon. You guys have taken hundreds of dollars!,,
To old for new players!
by battle Rad Rod on 2020/08/10 21:31
Don’t waste your time loading this. No new players so you have to fight battles against larger opponents which makes it take forever to grow! Try something newer.
Love it but wish less pay-to-win
by shrubbery360 on 2020/08/10 15:24
I really love this game. The tournaments aren’t my favorite like many other reviewers comment. I have won before but it’s rather infrequent. I mostly play tournaments just to grind for other things and not with the expectation to win. I enjoy plenty of other aspects of this game. I understand that it is a grind game so you are going to spend most of your time grinding to get anywhere. So if you need more instant gratification results this game is probably not for you. I do agree that I wish I could earn a larger amount of blue diamonds for free than I do. Especially for the high diamond cost for things.
I like it!
by atabalasi on 2020/08/10 09:37
As many people said in previous comments,this game’s progression is too slow but I take it as an advantage because it makes difference between real players and not real ones
Addictive
by Cause robins on 2020/08/10 00:13
I’ve only been playing this game for three days now and it’s pretty addicting. Tons of stuff you can do which makes it really fun especially during times where there’s a lot of down time.

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 :(
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.
Great free to play game.
by Maxermind on 2018/04/28 14:22
I have been playing for 5 months and nearly reached the top level for less than 10 dollars. Developers are generous with game currency (gems), earn 30-40 a day. I saved and spent and bought builders to accelerate. People complain about being outmatched against higher levels, but haven’t figured out how to work the system. Your rank goes up for winning and down for loosing, your pvp map generates opponents according to your rank. Kill everybody on your map at once = inflated rank = super tough opponents regenerate next time. You have to lose on purpose, to manage this. Easily done. I would say f2p players could reach end game in 6 months of normal play. To dominate it will take a lot more time, but doable.
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
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..
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.
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.
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.
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
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
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
There’s good and bad to this game.
by Rocnewyork on 2020/10/19 19:27
This game is actually incredible. It will keep you busy for hours. There is a lot going on in this game. From making weapons to fighting tournaments, the building your castle it’s a great game. There are a few downsides to this game. One is you definitely eventually have to spend money. My biggest problem is people can literally screw you in the dungeon. To start a journey in the dungeon you have to use food or torches. Torches will make sure you get a box after beating a boss. Food doesn’t. The problem with this is you have to play with another player. So if you start a game and spend food or a torch and the person playing with you decides to leave before you start you lose whatever you used to play ie torch or food. Torches can be won but you can also buy them. We should NOT be losing stuff we paid for before it can even be used. We should be given back what we lose if no battles are fought on a journey. Also some people don’t know how to play. They go in die once and leave. Again the other player loses when someone does that. Amazing game truly has become one of my favorites. Like any game there are flaws but hopefully some of them get fixed. Keep up the good work developers
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?
by heavy metal is good 4 u! on 2020/03/30 14:50
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.
Awesome but costs too much and frustration!
by Kyustation on 2018/01/02 17:24
Ok. Awesome game. You start out upgrading your castle and crushing your enemies. Then you can take couple and breed more workers to build a larger squad and resource gatherers to get more powerful. However, you get to a point where the pvp match up is always putting you up against people more powerful than you. Now you have to pay a lot to get awesome armor and weapons to make you more powerful. You think your are going to crush enemies now.... NO. Now the the matchup puts you against event more powerful enemies. I dumped $150 in 2 weeks and I keep getting put against opponents with better armor and weapons than me. Which means, they even dumped more money to cherry pick all the good items.. It’s a vicious circle you won’t win. So I’m done playing only due to the fact I would have to pay thousands to actually enjoy the game.
Not free to play
by a123pa on 2019/05/15 17:35
I downloaded the game because of an interesting ad. It was not anything like the ad but I thought maybe it gets better if i keep playing! It did not! The game is not at all like the ad. Deceiving advertising! Besides that, it is not a free to play game. It is basically get better items, get more powerful game. Strategy and game plan are not that important. Basically do not advance too fast before you are ready and you are good! Spend money to get better items or even buy them and you rock it! Of course, you can get the same items people buy for free but with spending too much time and maybe after a few months! I understand games need to make money and the way to do it is by giving an edge to players who spend money. However, this game does not give an advantage to players who spend money. It gives disadvantage to people who does not! Once you activate premium, then the real competition starts. Premium gives you a normal play. Without it, you spend most of your time waiting for battles to finish! You don’t have auto-battle option and can only fast forward them if you have a premium account. Also, be ready to watch around 20-30 ads (30 seconds each). To conclude, if you are not going to spend money, this game is not for you. If you are going to spend money, there are better games to play!
Quite a fun game, but has some issues
by markfvita on 2019/03/30 21:49
It is an average game, there is no big problem with it, however one bad thing about this game is that some waiting. Sometimes you have to wait because of a lack of resources. In this game you have to have a certain amount of food to be able attack , so for a while you have to wait until you get more food. Another problem is the offers the game offers you. The offers will give you a certain amount of time to buy some gear or something that will help you. Now this would seem normal most games do that, but this game is different. The stuff you can get are very overpriced. One of the offers was 10 dollars for some gear and more resources. I just think that is really not worth it. Even though these problems it is still a fun game
More fun than Fallout Shelter
by XxRakkMac101xX on 2017/12/20 00:04
I must admit, this game is a blatant ripoff of Fallout Shelter mobile game. They didn’t even bother with changing the name of the inhabitants from “Dweller”. That being said, it does almost everything Shelter does well, and not only simplifies it, but also manages to build on it when it comes to combat. The squad building battles are fun and rewarding. Loot system is pretty good as well offering decent customization of your troops. The problem once again is the pay-to-win scheme that simply ruins games in my opinion and I don’t understand why we as gamers put up with it. The multiplayer in the later stages becomes a brick wall of difficulty unless you cough up the cash to build a decent team. Which can be very costly. Luckily there is enough single player game packed into Hustle Castle to make it enjoyable without paying a cent, but it just doesn’t last.

Addictive
by Shasta.Cola805 on 2020/12/01 05:31
A good game honestly no cap but I’m here because of a wizard hypnotized me with his pet frog.
Aggravated.
by ticky tavey on 2020/11/29 16:54
Fun game. I keep getting kicked off line during fights and tournaments. Aggravated.
BEST GAME EVER
by KingHustleFan on 2020/11/26 03:16
I started to play and at the start I liked it so thank you creator
Fun game, but needs improvement.
by jsa9 on 2020/11/25 07:57
There is a bug in the update. Whenever you lose to the monsters in Mysterious Signs, it doesn’t take you to the results screen, instead it freezes with music playing and I have to restart it to continue. I’m not sure if this occurs in other missions. Other than that, it’s a fun game. Be prepared for the ads though, as there are quests that you can do that involve watching ads. The only thing that bothers me is you have to spend money in order to get far in the game. Diamonds cost money, and you will have to grind more often just to get your army to top shape. In app purchases are common in this game, so keep that in mind before you download this.
Playing for years now
by zzccbbff on 2020/11/24 13:27
I absolutely love the upgrades gem bay, heroes, clan neighborhood, and the ability to watch ads in tourney and portal. Thanks for keeping it good for the everyday player.
Bring money or quit
by HoofHearted13 on 2020/11/21 00:11
Progress in the game is impossible unless you spend a lot of money after an initial fun few days. Same old bait and switch you find in most of these “free” games.
Trash customer support
by The Shivva on 2020/11/20 14:30
The game is ok but customer support is garbage.. current event stop giving me cards and I’ve completed a butt load of task and defeated castles..and no way to contact or creat a ticket.. all it says common answers to some problems
Must Spend Money
by eur0travels on 2020/11/17 15:35
This game makes you spend money to be any good and compete with other players.
Can I rate it 0 stars?
by Ethan4102983 on 2020/11/16 04:09
So just from opening this game I can see it’s false advertising. I’m not even going to play it. Their Snapchat ad shows a “Where’s my water” replica [Where’s my water would still be 1000% better if the game played as it did in the Snapchat ad] This is truly just a fake advertisement they put on Snapchat, I don’t see any part of the ad ANYWHERE on the app, and from the reviews I see, that the app is pay to play, puts a bad reputation on this company for me. I am never installing a game from this company.

Add gauntlets hustle castle plz
by Pandora759YT on 2020/11/14 15:29
This game is Good but it would be a lot better if it had a another story knife and also add cooler weapons like some gauntlets or powerful gloves
The better you get your opponents always get 3 times better.
by Iamdone2 on 2020/11/12 08:25
I upgrade and upgrade thinking this next set will be a winner, I try it works for a short time like a day than my opponents get much harder. It’s a circus really never ending.
Hmmm
by BigBadBair on 2020/11/11 06:26
I’m trying to figure out where all the black people are in the castle? Or are they hangin out just outside the walls. That must be it. They’re definitely around...
slow and expensive
by el_savastano on 2020/11/11 01:19
I’ve been playing this game for 1 year now and I am only at 1M squad power. We always have to pay so much money for diamonds, premium, goblin, upgrades or gear and it’s becoming redundant. Also, I often don’t get any rewards after watching ads (yes, completely). It’s more about waiting than playing... Thanks for fixing these issues! This game would be legendary otherwise :(
Carbord event update CRASHES
by Coasterbuf on 2020/11/10 06:15
Can’t even run the game now. It just crashes no matter what I do. Way to screw up my progress. Other people are complaining about it on Facebook too. Come on My.games. What did you guys DO? So frustrating. No need to contact my,games support (they are worthless BTW) as their update to their update fixed my problem 11/9/2020. Strangely their tech support people are out of the loop and completely unaware of this update’s existence. Which is why they are worthless. The company really needs to invest in better support and better communication to their staff.
Not able to get on
by Mvclowny on 2020/11/08 04:23
I love this game but ever since the new update I haven’t been able to play. It crashes as soon as you open the app. Is there something wrong or have the update been messed up.

Make It Queer
by FourgeC. on 2020/11/06 23:20
Want so more Queerness to it. Maybe add to the baby-making mechanic, like an additional marriage and family bonus. Add surrogacy option to the mix of baby making. Maybe add housing around the castle for additional workers to live in, where maybe the families could move to and offer unit bonuses from. Queers—we’re everywhere!😜
A guy who enjoys the game
by kaijjj1 on 2020/11/06 11:06
Why is there a black guy on the cover when he isn’t accessible on the game.
Omg best game!!! ❤️❤️
by nyawinslow on 2020/11/04 19:13
Ok so this game is so good! I have never had a bad experience from this game! You get this really cool and funny storyline and you get this little chat log in game where the in game bosses have like a little Facebook page! If you ever have a problem with someone saying something in the clan or world chat you can just use there version of reporting! You don’t need to by anything they have events so you can earn them your self!
Cool work game.
by BigALCali82 on 2020/11/03 19:43
When I’m at work, this game helps me throughout the day.
Best game ever
by Crawdad67 on 2020/11/01 15:30
I mean I like a lot of games, but this games is quite fun it is a fun game to play when you are bored or have free time and you can really play it all the time and some parts of it are waiting and waiting, but some you can just keep playing and not stop. I would personally always download this game really fun you should check it out.
This game is a long dull drag
by OGREZILLA on 2020/11/01 11:26
I have been playing this game for to long and only gets worse and harder over time. Geared way to much towards pay to win and you still lose. I was a maxed bases with 7 dwellers at 100 in full ancient sets and losing to 6 fighters 3 at 100 and 3 in the 70s with out full gear. 6 millions squad power lower then mine. Game is glitched to help lower fighter. It’s such a waste of time to upgrade and play this game. Highly recommend investing in a different game. In response to devs. You’re right I don’t get how having less gear and lower level fighters help you win. Total game flaw in my opinion. What’s the point of adding souls and jewelry to fighters if others do better with out it. Again the game play is so messed up it makes the game unfair and aggravating to play.
Slow but good
by hyddheueh on 2020/10/30 04:09
In the training place it goes super slow but over all it’s a pretty good game.
Great format
by Kirakuro on 2020/10/29 07:18
Love how the game world is built and the story mode. Will there be more story expansions?
Scam
by kevinetran77 on 2020/10/27 16:15
This game is a scam! Be prepared to shell out tons of money. No matter how good you are or how much money you spend the game adjust to get harder so you just end up spending more money.
I is a good game
by progan 83 on 2020/10/27 00:52
I wish you made a game called knights vs goblins like this game PLEASE
Fair and competitive
by "The Farts" on 2020/10/23 15:17
Despite what some reviews state you can easily compete and have fun without investing money. If you don’t want to buy upgrades there is definitely fun strategy involved in upgrading your castle. You will still have plenty of opportunities to collect unique and legendary gear that allow you to compete with the players who pay for upgrades. The game updates with new events fairly regularly too so new opportunities will always arise. Have fun!
Addicting and fun BUT...
by dancehamsta on 2020/10/23 14:05
The only complaint I have is level matching with PVP or the fact that someone with literally a million squad points can raid your castle. I’ve spent so much time saving up gold so that I can upgrade a room only for someone 5 times my strength to come steal 100k or more of my gold. That being said, The game is fantastic and I love that you can do things in this game that you can’t in most. Also getting diamonds is pretty easy and I like that you can win the premium pass for 3 days sometimes.
So awesome
by RL graham on 2020/10/21 21:47
This game is cool that I joined my favorite YouTuber’s clan. I like getting more coins and food and wood and more. I like fighting in the adventure map, the arena, and many more that I can’t get off this game app. It would be sooooooooooooo cool that this would get a awesome dinosaur event in the hustle castle future and there would a new Dino background for the castle!!!
There’s good and bad to this game.
by Rocnewyork on 2020/10/19 19:27
This game is actually incredible. It will keep you busy for hours. There is a lot going on in this game. From making weapons to fighting tournaments, the building your castle it’s a great game. There are a few downsides to this game. One is you definitely eventually have to spend money. My biggest problem is people can literally screw you in the dungeon. To start a journey in the dungeon you have to use food or torches. Torches will make sure you get a box after beating a boss. Food doesn’t. The problem with this is you have to play with another player. So if you start a game and spend food or a torch and the person playing with you decides to leave before you start you lose whatever you used to play ie torch or food. Torches can be won but you can also buy them. We should NOT be losing stuff we paid for before it can even be used. We should be given back what we lose if no battles are fought on a journey. Also some people don’t know how to play. They go in die once and leave. Again the other player loses when someone does that. Amazing game truly has become one of my favorites. Like any game there are flaws but hopefully some of them get fixed. Keep up the good work developers
Tournaments make 0 sense
by Kil0o on 2020/10/17 21:20
I’m at 350k power and it continually matches me with all 1000k+ power players after waiting for 20 to 30 minutes to even get into it. And the event tells me I have to defeat player in the Tournaments. I regret buying the event token at this point.
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.
Love it

Micro purchases will destroy you
by doesn'tcareforthis on 2020/10/10 18:41
If you don’t become a premium subscriber, you will be chum for those that do. And being premium offers very little in terms of actual help. You can’t win, and at a certain point can’t even progress, without paying. I played daily for about a year, but got fed up at the point where all my progress for a day would be wiped by looters anytime I closed the game. Tournaments are rigged; I literally never won anything. The dungeon is a joke. Can’t get reward chests without beating bosses, but many rooms don’t even have bosses you can reach. So you only earn coins towards hero updates, but do so very, very slowly without paying for premiums. In addition to coins, you also need artifact fragments are randomly given out in chests, so that’s another way to slow progress and keep you at chum levels if you aren’t generating income for developers. About 50% of rewards are skins for your items that offer nothing helpful for play, just make things look different. And some of the skins won’t work with options you’ve selected. So you’ll have worked for hours and spent resources for absolutely nothing. It’s garbage. Contests are stacked in favor of those that pay for the premium passes, and those rewards compound in future contests and play. Basically, if you don’t plan to spend at least $10 per day after about level 20, you will be nothing but chum for wealthier players. I’m not saying the developers don’t deserve an income, but the game isn’t fun unless you’re shelling out major bucks. And the more you pay, the better you do. Don’t waste your time or your money on this cash grab.
Game good/ bad
by Jaylarue on 2020/10/05 15:08
Game is great in the beginning. Game will become impossible to progress endless you make cash purchases. Customer support is no help either.
No changes in tournaments
by waxshiy on 2020/10/04 16:31
When will you make tournaments fair? My level is 29 but always fighting against level 33s or over than it, I'm always the least leveled and weakest player there, do you think it is fair?
Eh
by MMelliC on 2020/10/04 15:42
There are no black or brown characters to play - they are just in advertisements. Game gets boring after a while if you aren’t paying.
Fun to a point.....
by nooooo o on 2020/10/04 01:34
This game was fun, until I started to progress, then it is absolutely pay to win. Don’t even start it, seriously.

BUGGY!!!!
by Buchtmann on 2020/10/01 21:36
I have to reinstall the game 3 times now playing for 2 months. Waiting on training and moving around castle, one peon got selected and I tried dropping him back with all of a sudden my two training 5 hours in LEFT TRAINING AT THE SAME TIME. When I finally got them back in they lost their training.... LOST HOURS OF TRAINING BECAUSE THE GAME IS BUGGY!!! Frustrating as hell and tournaments like everyone says is lackluster and rigged. Ads crash the game now and again. This game lets you speed up by ad watching. Not bad until it crashes your game. I’m just about at the point of uninstalling this game as it seems it’s in a beta version. So many other games that just aren’t as frustrating than this game and they seem to be a cookie cutter game as I’ve seen ads with almost identical layout. Game is honestly 2-3 stars. Anyone giving it 4 or 5 is full of it.
Don’t let these people screw you
by BigSnug on 2020/10/01 15:08
Sooooo after spending thousands and thousands of dollars over the past year the developers decided to ban my account. I’ve never cheated and done absolutely nothing wrong. I have one of the stronger accounts in the game and went to log in and they decided my account was to be no more. Don’t let these people screw you. If your not ready to throw away a bunch of money this game isn’t for you
Hope you never need anything
by 1984mandi on 2020/10/01 11:07
The support team for this app is a complete joke. They are not helpful and offer no solutions.
Fun. But shady in app sales
by Geahjib on 2020/10/01 10:26
So every once in a while this game gives you custom packages to buy. Some are straight forward like boss gear and certain settlers. But some make it seem like your buying a big bundle and you only end up getting one piece. They have a bundle called the jack of ALL trades. And as you scroll through what appears to be the contents of the bundle. It shows 4 different settlers all with corresponding gear for gold, mana cooking and wood cutting. And calling it the jack of all trades you would think you get all of them. But as you slide through what appears to be the complete list. The settler you are on at the time of purchase is the only 1 settler you get with gear. Everything else is forefit. So pay attention to the in app sales. Because they are misleading sometimes. Gonna dispute that one. And with the response I got from the dev. I have since lowered my rating of this game. Because the devs don’t give a sht. They just want your money.

Hey developers you earned this review due to the current event! 65 cards and not a single rune! Are you serious? Anyone thinking of paying extra money for events don’t! It’s a rip off game promises to offer you rewards that you never get. Just a way for these people to pump more money from your wallets.

Clan Territory
by Hausofmeredith on 2020/09/17 08:16
The developers say there is uncertainty due to Covid-19 to release clan territory, the new content they promised 2 years ago. Yet there is no uncertainty when it comes to releasing monthly pay to win events. A lot of longtime players are leaving
Bait and Switch
by Disappointed in Hillcrest on 2020/09/17 05:31
If they are going to run ads they should be required to actually include game content. If you watch the ad and think that looks fun. This game has nothing shown in the ads.
Game developers are Cheaters and Swindlers
by mtt1960 on 2020/09/16 21:37
This game is addictive but you have to spend thousands of dollars to progress and they always change the rules so every time you think you’ve finally achieved something good the rules change again. Work to buy an artifact that works great for a few week then they turn the attributes off. Seriously don’t waste your time or money. Support is completely non-existent I WOULD GIVE IT ZERO STARS if I could!
Used to be fun, Now it’s horrible
by dex5661 on 2020/09/16 21:15
100%? Pay to play, events are fun but good look getting any of the unique items without having to pay. Even if you pay, the chances are so low of getting any of those unique items. Developers don’t ever listen to the players. I just quit the other day, save your money and time ... go elsewhere
Only can go so far
by PreppychickGM on 2020/09/15 20:50
I loved this at first, exactly what I thought I was looking for. I was addicted the first few days, spent some actual money. Then I hit a wall. It takes DAYS to earn enough resources to build, and I want a game that I can sit and play for an hour. Can’t do that anymore.
Pay to pay to pay
by Julu1988 on 2020/09/15 14:48
After a year or so I just do some daily grind. You don’t get much benefit unless you have about 200-300 per month to spend on events and diamonds. The clans are fun, enjoy the early growth but get out around 6 months if you don’t want a bad taste in your mouth.
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

I am a top 70’s regional player. I have loved the game, grind daily and over 22million in power. The events are rigged, artifacts don’t drop till you’ve hit 250 chest. I purchased over 300 dollars on this event and got to chest 190 and it would have taken another several hundreds of dollars to get to chest 300. Don’t play, the events are not worth it. Until I get good items out of the amount I spend to support the game, I’m Out!! BBB needs to get involved it’s what us gambling
Classic pay to win
by The one and only Oscar. on 2020/09/05 09:39
Grind all you want, spend countless hours building your squad up with the the best you can gather - a twelve-year-old with his mother’s credit card will outclass you in a day. Special events occur frequently with the “opportunity” to buy special items that will allow you to easily beat non-paying players; it is a competition of wallets, not skill. Waste your time with another “freemium” game - or not - it’s all the same. “Be a Rich Man” is the most powerful clan in this app - can you venture any guess as to why?
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.
Not balanced for lower level players
by revise n edit on 2020/09/04 18:43
Where to start??? Well it’s simple, if you don’t wanna spend money but actually just want to play then do t get this game. A person can have better soldiers and be a lower level and still win simply because they’ve spent cash. Not to mention if you don’t spend money and you don’t spend every waking second on the game people will constantly attack you and you lose tons of money that you’ve accumulated over time which in return makes it close to impossible to upgrade. I’ve been on this game for over a year and have spent maybe 5 dollars and still not max level. Good game and concept other than that. The execution of it caters strictly for people who pay. So not worth playing overall
Need to clarify whos purchasing stuff on their game.
by D_dog360 on 2020/09/04 05:34
They need some form of security for puchasing crap on this game. My kid keeps buying stuff off of it
To the devs

Expensive and Disappointing

While the camel is pretty good in the beginning it gets to be some what difficult an overly time consuming unless you wanna spend lots of money.

Get Hustled Castle
by CMoonUUA on 2020/09/02 04:58
This game is ok. It can pull you in but there’s a redundancy. To compete with other players you have to spend a lot of money. Saying that, this last event is why I’m deleting the game. After spending a certain amount of money I should have been able to get all the unique items but I never got the ones that were worth it. You’ll have to buy a bunch in app purchases for any and everything in the game. This game makes you think you’re the hustler, building your castle and fighters but really the creators are hustling you for the money in your wallet. I really wanted the T-Rex artifact in the Jurassic event it’s very disappointing to open 375 boxes and spend cash on the event to not get what you want. Send me the T-Rex artifact I’ll write a better a review.
Greedy
by tong514 on 2020/09/02 01:59
Good game but creators are greedy and make events impossible without spending big money
Bored
by Ladyluck811 on 2020/09/01 09:01
I’ve been having this game I think 2 years maybe more but I used to enjoy this game. Now it’s getting boring. The characters take too long to level up and they won’t level up automatically. The rooms are expensive there is no way you can save up 10,000,000 coins if you are getting raided all the time but you can’t blame the players cause that’s what you’re supposed to do. I blame the makers of this game to only think of money and put things so expensive so people would have to buy diamonds just to get their resources on what they need. It’s not fair to the community. Think of the players that have helped you make this game as an success cause remember if we didn’t play then....🤷🏽‍♀️

by javier19611203 on 2020/08/26 00:55
This game is fun but it is very unfair to players. You have to spend a lot of money to get your characters strong enough to compete. And even if you are strong they always pair you up with someone 10 times stronger than you so you will get your ass kicked anyway. The tournaments are a freaking joke. And when you attack somebody even if they are weaker than you sometimes you will loose. I played for a while but got really frustrated. So they will not get any more of my money. Don’t play this game unless you want to spend a lot of money.
Extreme pay to win
by Oidez on 2020/08/24 17:05
I don’t mind paying for a game but the most recent event required 8+ hours a day for 3 weeks and an extra 200-300 dollars to get all the items. Every event that comes out the price goes up. Selective offers 10 dollars for you 50 dollars for your friend for the same item. Try a different game
Been year. They need your money
by alansharan on 2020/08/20 04:24
I can totally relate to most of the reviews here. I understand they made the game to make money. But they have so many ads. I am sure they are making good money. If you have to grow, you need to spend $$!! Never came even a 10th in a tournament, gorget winning. Barely get hold of Legendary stuff. Most stuff I made it myself. I am deleting this app, as soon as I end this line. TY HC.
Lies
by Wog boy on 2020/08/19 20:05
The developers lied they said all pvp will be at even power levels but yet my acct gets hit regularly by other acts some with power levels 4 times mine a ploy to get you to spend money save your coin and don’t play this game
Ads Lied
by NASCAR fan man on 2020/08/19 00:35
So many ads for building bridges and get a poor clash of clans remake
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!
Absolute worst customer support!
by artfuldodger444 on 2020/08/17 19:06
It began as fun game but is now Pay-to-Play. If you have any game issue Customer Support will do everything to blame you and not resolve your issue. Choose another game, you will be happy you did.
Great game but....
by inkedmom0104 on 2020/08/17 01:23
I love this game so much but it drives me nuts that you have to wait days on things to upgrade! To try and use diamonds to do it is ridiculous too! I would definitely enjoy the game more if the wait times were better.
Fun game but careful with in app purchases
by Kouruu on 2020/08/11 22:37
It is a very fun and addicting game. However to get the most out of it, in app purchases would be required. They offer good deals but be careful when you select your purchases. Because if you make a mistake, you are stuck with that mistake. Customer service will not help you resolve it. Only tell you basically sorry, there’s nothing we can do. But thanks for your money though. I’m having to work with Apple for a refund now.
It’s just a tease
by grandpa retired on 2020/08/11 04:27
It is a fun game but I’m gonna delete it. I have spent too much money! Nothing free it was in the beginning but I’m stuck having to upgrade again. I have couple waiting to have the baby and now all the crap with stone or whatever it is. I put it on my phone. That was a mistake you can’t share. The goblins bought doesn’t last. I want some more free play it was fun. I’m deleting soon. You guys have taken hundreds of dollars!,,
To old for new players!
by battle Rad Rod on 2020/08/10 21:31
Don’t waste your time loading this. No new players so you have to fight battles against larger opponents which makes it take forever to grow! Try something newer.
Love it but wish less pay-to-win
by shrubbery360 on 2020/08/10 15:24
I really love this game. The tournaments aren’t my favorite like many other reviewers comment. I have won before but it’s rather infrequent. I mostly play tournaments just to grind for other things and not with the expectation to win. I enjoy plenty of other aspects of this game. I understand that it is a grind game so you are going to spend most of your time grinding to get anywhere. So if you need more instant gratification results this game is probably not for you. I do agree that I wish I could earn a larger amount of blue diamonds for free than I do. Especially for the high diamond cost for things.
I like it!
by atabalasi on 2020/08/10 09:37
As many people said in previous comments,this game’s progression is too slow but I take it as an advantage because it makes difference between real players and not real ones
Addictive
by Cause robins on 2020/08/10 00:13
I’ve only been playing this game for three days now and it’s pretty addicting. Tons of stuff you can do which makes it really fun especially during times where there’s a lot of down time.

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 :(
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.
Great free to play game.
by Maxermind on 2018/04/28 14:22
I have been playing for 5 months and nearly reached the top level for less than 10 dollars. Developers are generous with game currency (gems), earn 30-40 a day. I saved and spent and bought builders to accelerate. People complain about being outmatched against higher levels, but haven’t figured out how to work the system. Your rank goes up for winning and down for loosing, your pvp map generates opponents according to your rank. Kill everybody on your map at once = inflated rank = super tough opponents regenerate next time. You have to lose on purpose, to manage this. Easily done. I would say f2p players could reach end game in 6 months of normal play. To dominate it will take a lot more time, but doable.
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
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..
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.
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.
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.
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
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
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
There’s good and bad to this game.
by Rocnewyork on 2020/10/19 19:27
This game is actually incredible. It will keep you busy for hours. There is a lot going on in this game. From making weapons to fighting tournaments, the building your castle it’s a great game. There are a few downsides to this game. One is you definitely eventually have to spend money. My biggest problem is people can literally screw you in the dungeon. To start a journey in the dungeon you have to use food or torches. Torches will make sure you get a box after beating a boss. Food doesn’t. The problem with this is you have to play with another player. So if you start a game and spend food or a torch and the person playing with you decides to leave before you start you lose whatever you used to play ie torch or food. Torches can be won but you can also buy them. We should NOT be losing stuff we paid for before it can even be used. We should be given back what we lose if no battles are fought on a journey. Also some people don’t know how to play. They go in die once and leave. Again the other player loses when someone does that. Amazing game truly has become one of my favorites. Like any game there are flaws but hopefully some of them get fixed. Keep up the good work developers
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?
by heavy metal is good 4 u! on 2020/03/30 14:50
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.
Awesome but costs too much and frustration!

Ok. Awesome game. You start out upgrading your castle and crushing your enemies. Then you can take couple and breed more workers to build a larger squad and resource gatherers to get more powerful. However, you get to a point where the pvp match up is always putting you up against people more powerful than you. Now you have to pay a lot to get awesome armor and weapons to make you more powerful. You think your are going to crush enemies now.... NO. Now the the matchup puts you against event more powerful enemies. I dumped $150 in 2 weeks and I keep getting put against opponents with better armor and weapons than me. Which means, they even dumped more money to cherry pick all the good items.. It’s a vicious circle you won’t win. So I’m done playing only due to the fact I would have to pay thousands to actually enjoy the game.
Not free to play

I downloaded the game because of an interesting ad. It was not anything like the ad but I thought maybe it gets better if i keep playing! It did not! The game is not at all like the ad. Deceiving advertising! Besides that, it is not a free to play game. It is basically get better items, get more powerful game. Strategy and game plan are not that important. Basically do not advance too fast before you are ready and you are good! Spend money to get better items or even buy them and you rock it! Of course, you can get the same items people buy for free but with spending too much time and maybe after a few months! I understand games need to make money and the way to do it is by giving an edge to players who spend money. However, this game does not give an advantage to players who spend money. It gives disadvantage to people who does not! Once you activate premium, then the real competition starts. Premium gives you a normal play. Without it, you spend most of your time waiting for battles to finish! You don’t have auto-battle option and can only fast forward them if you have a premium account. Also, be ready to watch around 20-30 ads (30 seconds each). To conclude, if you are not going to spend money, this game is not for you. If you are going to spend money, there are better games to play!
Quite a fun game, but has some issues

It is an average game, there is no big problem with it, however one bad thing about this game is that some waiting. Sometimes you have to wait because of a lack of resources. In this game you have to have a certain amount of food to be able attack , so for a while you have to wait until you get more food. Another problem is the offers the game offers you. The offers will give you a certain amount of time to buy some gear or something that will help you. Now this would seem normal most games do that, but this game is different. The stuff you can get are very overpriced. One of the offers was 10 dollars for some gear and more resources. I just think that is really not worth it. Even though these problems it is still a fun game
More fun than Fallout Shelter

I must admit, this game is a blatant ripoff of Fallout Shelter mobile game. They didn’t even bother with changing the name of the inhabitants from “Dweller”. That being said, it does almost everything Shelter does well, and not only simplifies it, but also manages to build on it when it comes to combat. The squad building battles are fun and rewarding. Loot system is pretty good as well offering decent customization of your troops. The problem once again is the pay-to-win scheme that simply ruins games in my opinion and I don’t understand why we as gamers put up with it. The multiplayer in the later stages becomes a brick wall of difficulty unless you cough up the cash to build a decent team. Which can be very costly. Luckily there is enough single player game packed into Hustle Castle to make it enjoyable without paying a cent, but it just doesn’t last.
