hustle castle: Medieval Vault
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?
Bad support
by 122445677909642 on 2019/10/22 15:46
Game is fun, but you better spend money to win. Oh, once you spend money, good chance the game will glitch and you will lose items that you paid for. Put in a ticket, they will tell you the problem was fixed but they do not reimburse lost items... Like it cost them money to do so. Worst customer service ever.
Seems very much like Fallout Shelter
by Royal Daddy-O on 2019/10/22 02:20
Similar layout although I like the change and staying with the comical theme. Small efforts of micro transactions but still very “free to play” playable so far.
One of my favorite games

A good game overall
by Kbright08 on 2019/10/20 15:57
This is good game overall. It’s definitely a pay to win, but they all are when money is involved. The Arena is probably the part of it I like the least. Getting beat by guys less powerful is something I still don’t understand. But I guess that’s how it goes.
Filled with scams
by Mobotics on 2019/10/20 00:50
The latest is their ad - pay 9.99 and get all these amazing items! You pay 9.99 and the find out you unlocked the rewards - now you can earn them? Total scam! This app should be banned!
What is the title for?
by Khanchris1 on 2019/10/19 01:02
The one problem in this game is that they greater chances of getting better things when getting a chest to get a powerful item or a legendary item and the skins that envoled events also need to have greater chances of getting them
False advertising
by —KANIPTION— on 2019/10/19 00:27
Where is the advertised game??
Great game
by craftybillbo on 2019/10/18 10:25
I’ve had this game over a year now, and I really love the game it’s easy to play/learn how everything works
Hitting the paywall
by Ashely Bird on 2019/10/18 00:40
Fun and entertaining, as well as addictive, but there’s a point at which you can’t progress without spending $$$ My castle is full of pregnant unwed mothers 😂 Wish it were reasonable to play without spending. I mean...what are advertisements for?
Hampster wheel.
by Amateur music maker on 2019/10/17 23:01
This game is great fun! A year of my life can be summarized as follows: You upgrade the units so you can get more resources so you can upgrade your units so you can attack more people so that you can upgrade and attack more people and get stronger unit and upgrade your resources so that you can upgrade your units and attack more people ......
Love this game
by MDWorthington09 on 2019/10/17 22:08
I love this game I’ve been playing since I was 6
Nothing like the ads
by bsdesigns on 2019/10/17 05:38
All I wanted to do was the some what interesting like puzzle escapes that are on the ads. But no it’s not even close to that don’t lie to get people to download your uninteresting game.
Best Game Ever
by GameFreak 290908 on 2019/10/16 20:28
It is one of the best games I have ever played. I love doing tournaments and collecting cool outfits. I just wish you could chose which weapons you craft. Sincerely Your Biggest Fan!
Money out to play
by Annoyed player Amy on 2019/10/16 17:20
I love the game, but you have to pay to advance and that’s why I gave it two stars. I will pay to support games I play and enjoy. But this outrageous.

False advertising
by Dan7777777770311 on 2019/10/15 02:52
First of all, this is nothing like the advertisement that made me download this game. It is a fallout shelter clone not the puzzle solving game. However it was a large download so I decided to give it a try. After about two days you’ll realize that unless you start paying money you are completely out matched. I spent about $15 and it didn't make a dent. Lastly you can't play with out internet connection so boo on this.
Horrible
by Hans Onmaicok on 2019/10/12 15:20
My review is the same as everyone else’s for the past year. This game is so P2W it’s unreal. Everyone has said the same thing, yet the developers have done nothing to fix it. They just keep milking their cash cow. At my level/trophy range my power sits at just over half a million, yet when I go into the arena not a single competitor has less than 800 thousand. I refuse to spend money on a game that isn’t fair to begin with. Don’t waste your time downloading because it will never be fixed.
Deceptive ads
by Nick94131 on 2019/10/12 02:50
The game isn’t even what the ads show. Unethical
Great
by Fdbenton:) on 2019/10/11 18:18
Listen, it only cost money if you are either impatient or not strategical. This game is just fine without spending money. Just like any game don’t waste the Gems on stupid stuff and save them. It is 4.99 one time price for 1 month to get premium which I think is definitely worth the price. This game is fun and has great content. If you find you are having a difficult time there are many YouTube channels and gaming forums that offer tricks. Perhaps read up before fully developing your castle to get an idea. That will help you level up the quickest and most efficient way. Also yes it is similar to Fallout Shelter in forms of format, but like Fallout Shelter stole their format from This War of Mine a PC game lol. This is just a new style of gaming that I enjoy and it doesn’t make it any less or more enjoyable. I love all 3 of these games lol. The only Cons for this is the friends option. I would like to be able to have in-game friendships. It’s limited to only Facebook Friends. I think it would be nice to at least become friends with my clan members.
Not as advertised
by bearkittykaciesfcf on 2019/10/09 19:54
Literally nothing like the ads you put out. Was a total and complete waste of my time to download and try and play. Don’t advertise this one way and have the game be something completely different.
@ Throne lvl 9...pretty much pay to play
by J054ngrhngg on 2019/10/08 02:41
It’s a 4 because it is interesting, has a few mini games and is a game that will last you 7-12 months depending how often you play. Funny game writers and interesting quirks. Good graphics, fairly addicting and worth the play if this type of game is your style. BUT, to compete decently toward the middle of the game...say throne lvl 6, you’ll need to watch a significant amount of adds or pay to win. At Throne level 9, it’s pretty much pay to play gamers. I would raid 3-4 enemies and gain 350k. However, I’ll get attacked by 2-3 enemies double to triple my level and lose 600-800k. At this point I can’t save to build...so the game is pretty much over. It was good while it lasted.
Slow pace, unbalanced gameplay, terrible support
by Kubmir on 2019/10/07 13:51
I play mainly on Android and have found it’s mildly interesting. The customer support, while it is responsive, is a canned “we can’t help you”. So my advice, don’t purchase anything.. if you have issues, they refuse to help. Go ahead and play games from a developer who will help their customers, there are lots out there
Engaging
by Othniy€L on 2019/10/07 02:28
Not many games hold my attention right away. Bravo!
Not the game shown in ads
by Mccloud79 on 2019/10/06 18:25
Like so many other games, not even remotely the game shown in ads. Just another that is nothing but a constant cycle of hurry up and wait. Build some rooms, upgrade some people, accomplish a couple quests then stuck waiting hours or even days (unless you spend a lot) to do anything else. One day I’m hoping to actually find a game that is what the ads show.
Wack
by Joel Varela on 2019/10/06 08:16
This game is wack, I wouldn’t recommend it loads a ton and the ads are too frequent
All ads
by Not too impressed either on 2019/10/06 04:53
I would say abut 90% of the time you have the game open you’ll be ignoring an ad. There is very little game to it, it’s just watching ads to advance your characters and castle to end up watching more ads.
Yea totally appropriate

Lots of buckle and dimeing
by Ana nonimous on 2019/10/04 22:05
This game is fun and engaging. The business model is terrible. Lots of $3-5 charges for little things. I paid for a couple, but I’m done now. Don’t get invested in this game, it will rip you off.
Better than fallout
by gisbtkd on 2019/10/04 16:21
I freaking love this game
Used to be amazing :(
by LY1025967 on 2019/10/04 11:24
I have had hustle castle for over 2 years or so now and have noticed it’s nothing but PAY TO WIN after you excel a certain range. I’ve had a blast with this game killing time making friends ect and even had and amazing clan of which all said there top tier players have all put spent a decent amount of change..loved the game but will no longer be installing, recommend to those who have a lot of free time and who are willing to spend money on a decent basis, quests were amazing though.
Hustle Castle Hustles You
by Dude anima on 2019/10/04 08:38
This game is incredibly unfair. Once you get slightly leveled up (after spending as much as a AAA game) they put you against people who spent more than you. Complete BS.
Lame
by Xandon on 2019/10/03 04:10
Gimmicky marketing shlop. The spent a ton of time (and money) on visuals with no real game play. It’s all about the upgrade.
Best game ever
by play to play never stop on 2019/10/02 22:19
I just got this game and I can’t stop playing its so fun
Arena
by Mallard711 on 2019/10/02 01:06
Fun game. Great game play. But the arena is some crap. Its a random draw so most of the time you fighting way out your league. Players 2-3 and 4 times stronger than you. I like a challenging game but if u dont like losing alot this isnt for you.
Nothing like advertised on Instagram.. try Change that

Rinse and repeat game design
by Pielover47 on 2019/09/29 00:18
Pay to have fun Pay to win Endless cycle of the enemy team is stronger than your team. You make your team stronger. The “new” group of enemies are stronger than your team. Endless cycle of being overpowered to encourage spending money. Too many meaningless items to collect. Just a money trap. If you are looking for a new game, don’t bother. It’s pretty much the same business plan as almost all phone games. Rather pay $100 for a game than a free game with in-game purchases that gives you an advantage for spending money. It’s just sad.

by sore poops alot on 2019/09/28 14:22
It’s a great game ,but when I spend diamonds to update a room while another one is under construction and don’t speed other room up ,the game takes my diamonds and doesn’t update after the first is done .
False Advertising
by 112 Reviewer on 2019/09/27 18:26
This game advertises as a puzzle game on social media. I was very disappointed to download it and see it’s another story game.
Good game, but.....
by Tpicfishman on 2019/09/27 18:07
I like the game, and it was really fun at first. But now it takes FOREVER to level people/rooms up and I’m really, really REALLY TIRED of wasting apples in the dungeon when a random player decided not to play at the first checkpoint... at 105,000 apples a pop if your partner decides not to play you should get your apples back!!!!
Bad ad

Flag
by Clash Golf Skidd on 2019/09/26 17:37
Not sure where else to write this but, the American Flag you have hanging vertically on the tower is wrong. When hanging vertically the Stars should be on the upper left. Thank you
I Stopped Playing!
by MaineMama77 on 2019/09/26 17:33
This was fun at first, but then it started to get a bit boring. I don’t mind spending a small amount of cash on a game but as a player I shouldn’t have to spend a fortune to get anywhere. I got to a point in the game where I could not upgrade my throne room. In order to do so, I had to upgrade my lumber mills. I couldn’t upgrade my lumber mills because my throne room wasn’t upgraded. Unless I bought an exorbitant amount of diamonds, I was stuck right where I was at. No thanks, I’m done.
Game is nice but costly.
by Zayqywyxc on 2019/09/26 16:36
If you want to level up and get anywhere in the game then expect to shell out a lot of cash.

I really love this game like the plate I was at a very high-level. Now I just updated the game and it won’t even get halfway loaded. I tried to reinstall it, and it still will only load halfway! Please try to fix it I would still like to play the game!
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.
Bait and switch

Hustled by Hustle Castle Support
by KahalaRock on 2019/09/23 10:40
I had submitted a request to Hustle Castle support to unlink a Facebook account from the game. After two days of waiting, I log onto the game and find that my game was completely reset to a new game id!! They unlinked my Game Center account rather than unlinking the Facebook account as I had requested. I sent a urgent message to Hustle Castle’s support team regarding this problem but have recieved *NO RESPONSE*. I’ve spent hundreds of $$$ on this game and will be contacting Apple Itunes to report this and receive restitution if Hustle Castle support doesn’t resolve this problem ASAP!
Didn’t even download and disappointed!!!
by Nicci929 on 2019/09/23 08:51
I love fallout shelter so I was really excited when I saw the gameplay video mm. The plot is totally something I would be into as well. Then I read the reverse...... Pay to win games piss me off!!! There are SO many reviews that say this game is one of the worst offenders! I get that you worked creating the game and want to make $ on your work, which you absolutely should!!! But there are better ways to do so that MORE people would probably be more likely to pay into! Do a $5 premium version that unlocks a premium gameplay where the better items are more common or something along those lines etc. but NO I will NOT be downloading and feeding into that greedy B.S!
False advertising

Very fun!
by Aprilsumma on 2019/09/22 18:15
I’m really enjoying this game. The graphics are fun kind of like Futurama style. The game plays not complicated, but I do wish after the tutorial was over there was an easier way to find out things I can’t remember how to do. Still trying to figure everything out.
Poor Player Level Matching
by ChannieBear on 2019/09/22 16:01
Constantly matched to players at excessively higher power levels than my warriors, instead of a good mix of high and low in the arena and in PVP battles on the map. Developers put out update after update saying they are going to fix this and they don’t.
Send equipment to clan members!!
by G dubbbble on 2019/09/22 14:32
Hey developers!! Let’s see a new update where we can send equipment to our friends/clan members! I don’t see why we can’t? This will make the game more competitive and increase the friendship of clan members and friends. I believe this would help out a lot. Please write me back and let me know if we will see this feature in the future!
BEST GAME EVER
by monster kila on 2019/09/22 14:24

Goofy and Fun

Hustle Castle
by lillymintchocolatechip on 2019/09/20 19:03
This game is very fun. My daughter is consistently playing it! I give this game 4 stars because although it’s fun, when I win my trophies don’t add up, the just don’t appear! If I could, I would give it 4 in a half stars.
Decent game. Dont upgrade too fast.
by allthenicknamesaretaken123455 on 2019/09/19 12:25
I upgraded my throne room too fast now i cant make any progress in the game. I would reset the game and start over but apparently developers wont let players do that. So i deleted the game and moved on with my life. Too bad. It was kind of fun until every battle was a loss.
False Advertisement
by falsefalsefalse on 2019/09/19 05:01

Unbalanced game play and uncaring support.
by Dynobytes on 2019/09/17 10:34
Game has tons of potential! Unfortunately the devs and customer support fail to really give a crap about player concerns. When trying to play in tournaments it is apparently set up that players that spend the most money will be the winners. Their matching system that is supposed to pair you up against other players of equal or close to equal skill and power is a joke. The last tournament I played in had 1 player with 86000 squad power, I had 218000 SP and the majority of the other 15 ish players were above 400000 SP. So basically I could squash like a bug 1 player and then get squashed myself. I contacted support and tactfully explained the issue and they gave me a long winded example of how the balancing worked and that ultimately the issue was my strategy and Squad build. How the hell would ANY strategy work against players are double any obtainable strength? Oh I get it, you pay over $100 to get your squad as high a level as possible and wait for days on end while they level up. Silly me!

Horrendously Deceitful
by Spidahmanz on 2019/09/16 14:55
I’ve seen several ads of this game, each ad was different from the rest, and that made the game somewhat interesting. So when I had the opportunity to download it, I found out that I was horrendously deceived. The ads market the game as “adult” themed, yet the game is NOWHERE like that. I would never spend a cent on this pitiful app. The developers are nothing but sleazy, slimy. Greedy goblins that are willing to False advertise their app just to get some money.
Starts off fun and quickly becomes confusing
by Dirk phoenix on 2019/09/16 00:20
I deleted the game today. I thought this game was cool at first but got tired of it once it wasn’t clear what I was supposed to do next.
Armor and weapon idea
by GuyWhoIsImportant on 2019/09/15 14:35
I love this game and as of right now the only thing I could think of that would make it better is making more different unique armor styles and weapons styles. And a new kinda black knight type of rare armor would be pretty cool too.
Great game

How did you get permission to copy a game?
by Blank Nyte on 2019/09/14 03:04
This is a merge of so many other games... most notably, Fallout Shelter. Also, fun for about five minutes before you are harassed about spending money... at every turn...
Definitely Pay to win game
by IgLikerApp on 2019/09/13 20:03
The game concept and play is fun, but you seriously can’t compete in the Arenas with the people that pay money. My power is a level 400k and they have me fighting against players that have 1.1-1.4mil. I emailed the game Devs and they basically said I need to review my “strategy” and invest in the game if I want to win! What a joke!
Fantastic game

Matchmaking
by Jjjjjjgggggggggg on 2019/09/11 16:43
I’ve been playing this game for about a year or so now. I really enjoy it but I’m not sure why y’all haven’t fixed the matchmaking yet. Like another reviewer said, I have all these tourney tickets but never use them because at 1.6 mill overall I’m getting paired with 4-7 mill overalls. Can you please explain to me how that’s fair at all? The tourney feature is virtually useless to me and I wish it wasn’t. Please fix your matchmaking system it is garbage as of rn.
Awesome

Another greedy developer
by baddude007 on 2019/09/09 06:28
This game has so many bugs not sure where to start. The ranking system is so screwed up that even though you are so much stronger than than another team you loose because they have some supreme gear. It takes forever to rank up. The game puts you in a losing situation by making you compete against players twice your strength. Don’t waste your time and get sucked in to it being fun early on.
FYI on this game
by CharlesClair on 2019/09/08 22:58
If you are on for any extended amount of time they accuse you of suspicious magical activity. Why that is I have no idea. It seems that you can only stay on for extended amounts of time is if you are spending money on the game. I believe this defeats the purpose of a so called free game. Actually I would call this fraud. Look out.
Fake ads

Garbage
by seazyr on 2019/09/08 05:12
Basically unplayable as FTP. Constantly ganged up on by opponents 6-7x stronger who bleed you of any resources to the extent it’s not possible to progress. Not worth your time.
Balance the game please
by LJmoney1999 on 2019/09/07 14:36

by drewpru on 2019/09/07 01:47
So when is the next update to fix the arena again, it still isn’t right
Fun but..,
by no fair tournaments on 2019/09/05 06:01
Tournament matching use to work but with the latest update. Tournament matching is trash. Why is it that every tournament I join I am the lowest ranked. I don’t get it. Please fix.
Need to adjust player levels
by bryanskee808 on 2019/09/05 06:00
The game if fun but arena battles are really awful!! Players that challenge you are 2 times or 3 times your power level and they seem to always win obviously. The leveling system needs a remake so players in the same range can play together instead of being abused by higher leveled players. Other than that fun game on your down time.
pay to win
by cirnwbaigkgmsbz on 2019/09/04 23:12
fun to build the castle but that’s about it i’ve never won or finished anything of significance even after caving to pay still not a win on the books and every event just gives you stuff out of your range of use forcing you to upgrade and wait months to use it or the developers just hate me and have just put wall after wall in front of me with nothing good on the other side i regret ever getting this game
Need real money to enjoy it.
by Cordel96 on 2019/09/04 09:55
This game is fun but you need to keep spending money to actually progress at a reasonable rate. I like the game but you have to buy too much like the goblin assistant and the premium. It’s not worth it in the long run.

This game could not get better or at least for me this game is so addicting and fun also it is easy to get really good troops and the better the troops the easier it is to win.
Eh...
by Cpindt on 2019/09/03 17:37
The dungeon in this game is atrocious. Enemies need to be nerfed very much! Please fix! Other than that and the dumb quests they have for some events. Not a bad game
Good game
by Wraith420 on 2019/09/03 07:54
This is fun
Do Better 😡
by BrgsMommy on 2019/09/03 05:28
I wish I could give a higher rating because I actually do love the game. But I absolutely hate that you have to pay so much money for everything!! It gets ridiculous!! Especially with this new event where you win the opportunity to BUY a legendary artifact. That’s just ridiculous! I hate that rich people or people who just blow money away get to be “better” than those who actually play and can’t afford it. I seriously get burned out because I get tired of fighting 3 mils when I’m a 1.7 mil. Like something has got to give here!! If it weren’t for my clan mates this game would be deleted!!
Wonderful Game One Problem
by Donno.19 on 2019/09/03 04:52
Yeah so I love the game the only reason im giving it 4 out of 5 is because I lost everything all my data and progress. Im a fresh fish again and have to start from the bottom is there any way I can get my old account information back. I deleted the app trying to make space on my phone now that ive redownloaded it all my progress got wiped.
this game is awsome
by smileyboy1010 on 2019/09/03 02:07
I’m a pro at this game my castle level is on level 19 i forgot I’m training my guys in my castle so they will be strong I love you game I’ve got 5 stars in this game also game awsome
Great game and developers listen to you
by BruinsMcWoo on 2019/09/02 03:33
I don’t know what you guys are doing with the arena. I know you tried fixing it but it’s still not leveling out with ppl of comparable stats. Im in the lower 300’s now and everyone is been playing against have been in the 700’s 500’s and 400’s. It’s not worth playing arenas. Another issue I think you may want to take a look at... If I’m trying to build a room and/or upgrade with my diamonds it won’t let any of us because we may not have the “storage capacity”. What’s the point of having the option to faster upgrades through diamonds if we need to make other upgrades first?! Isn’t that the point of using your diamonds lol?! Other than that it’s a GREAT game and fun to play.
Pay to pay to pay to win
by Nussant on 2019/09/02 02:58
Could be an awesome game but let me give a perfect example... $5.00 a month premium membership = fair enough $10.00 special event pass to make grinding worth it = ok Really insulting after paying that to play for hours in the special event to find that instead of earning the power gear you earned the right to buy the power gear at $20.00 a crack. Yes, I am done spending money on this Ap. They are just too greedy.

I love this game
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.
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.
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.
Fallout Shelter Clone
by Crysomemore 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 Jon-Boy 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.
Worst support team ever
by Timothy Lyon on 2019/03/04 12:38
I’m giving this game or bad review because the service that they provide with their support team is absolutely the worst experience of my life I’ve been ripped off $100 from this game and they don’t even have the time of day to go and look through their tickets in fact they told me to just go ask my credit card company to reimburse it. They didn’t even want to handle it themselves.I put in multiple tickets and they closed every single one of them asking me not to put in multiple tickets because it’s just going to extend the time so they have to take to look over my issues, basically threatened me to stop sending tickets because they won’t respond to them. So I decided that if they’re going to make me go out of my way to get my money back that I’m going to also go out of my way to let people know what they’re getting themselves into. Don’t make in app purchases unless you feel like taking the risk of not getting your money at all nor your product. Oh yeah not to mention the support system takes their sweet time getting to you I have spent over 24 hours to 48 hours waiting for a response on one of my tickets and keep in mind not even 1 million people play this game. I’m starting to see why.
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.
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
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.
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.
Good in the beginning...
by drock001 on 2019/03/28 17:48
When starting the game it’s fun.. and it’s equal.. then as you get higher up it becomes almost distorted in the way that you can seemingly attack players that are equal or lower skill level and always seem to lose... its almost as if they want you to spend money so you can buy more or better equipment so you can beat the players you are already significantly ahead of skill level wise... and then still lose to the people who are higher then you.. been playing for about 3 months and loved it until I have gotten to this point.. when complaining about how it doesn’t seem right... they respond with.. we can’t give strategic information out.. so I decided to change all strategies and equipment and what do you know.. same outcome. Really enjoyed the game but obviously at this point it’s quite frustrating since I can’t beat the people above me who are most likely bots and also can’t beat the people who are below me unless I pay to get better equipment. Anyways anyone who plays this game I wish you luck! Try not to get to irritated with it! -Derek
Extremely slowly progressive game, typical pay to win
by Mayham80 on 2019/01/26 15:57
First the good points, the graphics and gameplay action is good. The potential for being a great game is there but not as of now. Now the bad points, typical pay to win. The upgrades are extremely slow and can last days unless you spend diamonds to build instantly which requires a lot of money, to get good items requires real money or a lot of diamonds and the items you do get are always for mages. In game fighting is set at 1x speed and can not be sped up unless you purchase premium biweekly or monthly package (in-game fighting speed should always be changeable in standard game play!). All resources very slow to gain and can also pay to increase. Customer support very unhelpful, won’t admit or help when reporting glitches. Unless you plan on playing this game for years or paying ridiculous amounts of money just to be strong enough to keep up with other players, really don’t recommend. Plenty of other games out there that benefit non paying players, more evenly.
Unique “City Builder” Management Sim
by Lord Travis on 2018/10/07 16:02
There are a ton of stupid city building games in the vein of clash of clans that are all clones with little to offer the genre. Hustle Castle is something different for a change! Each production room of your castle needs to be manned by a villager that you either rescue or create through couples in the living room (G rated baby magic). Those villagers each have stats that can be modified with items, so there’s some strategy in determining who should be a warrior, treasurer, food producer, scientist, etc... It has goofy characters and art similar to Family Guy. I’ve played about a week and haven’t felt disappointed. There is a competitive pvp mode that I am sure paid players have an advantage, but you can jump right into joining a clan and get assistance with little things and learn the game. I cannot give 5 stars because there’s no such thing as a perfect game. But otherwise decent fun and unique take.
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.
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..
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
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.
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.
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.
Potential
by Turdburglartom on 2018/06/19 20:05
Pros and Cons Love the graphics and art work More casual than Fallout Shelter. Big plus PVP! Art feels in the vein of Family guy and American Dad. Easy disasters that don’t annoy like FOS “Populating” actually has a timer you can see Lots of free chests (see below) No worries of your people actually dying Rooms customization tool!!!YES!!! And it does NOT cost anything ! Woo! Big win over FOS Can collect gems, very slowly however Game runs smooth Loading is fast (IPhone 8 plus) Cons Sound altogether are so so Match making, as in most games, is designed to push you to purchase. Build times get long quickly Gems are too expensive for speed ups and actual purchase. I feel like I only care about my attack/defense team. All others are there just to fill a void. Why can’t I keep moving forward each stage in the campaign? Why do I always have to go back to the castle first??? Gear inventory management is horrible Chests aren’t very rewarding Overall, the male models never look “cool” My Biggest reason for frustration and lower stars: Accidentally dragging a character out of the training box (all training rooms) and their training time resets completely. W T F... This makes me think the developers are Retarded or wanting you to spend cash on “your” mistake to fix it. We are not talking a couple minutes here either...we are talking hours and days will reset. Again....W T F
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.
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!
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.
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
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.
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.
Need The Developers To See This
by Developers Please Read This on 2018/07/06 02:30
This is a fun gaming, especially if you’re involved in a clan. Unfortunately, in the clan that I take part of, the clan leader has (one of the people who can start clan wars) has become inactive. The only other person who can start clan wars is the deputy leader (he isn’t very active). I hope the developers see this and create a new rank such as “officer leader” or something like that, in order for not just my clan but other clans can take part of more clan wars. This new rank could be promoted by the clan leader or deputy leader. Clan wars is very fun to take part of, so this is the reason a feature like this could improve any clan. Hopefully the developers respond to this. Thanks, a loyal Hustle Castle Player.
Designed to stall you and waste your time..
by Ewartlambert on 2018/03/23 20:16
With hopes that you will try to swim against the flow using real cash, this game is a shameless gold digging waste of time. It could be fun if they didn’t set it up like that. This is how it goes, you start of making progress like normal. You can fight other castles for loot and grow faster, but the thing is. The game gives you trophies for defending, but no resources and the resources take days to build up. So what happens is you will no longer be able to make up the resource difference by attacking other people (since the game boosted your rank while you were away with the defensive trophies) and now you are stuck with opponents that are much stronger than you. So now you are forceful to either wait for your resources to build up (upgrades cost 3times what your room can hold, which means 3days of collection hoping you don’t get attacked which will cost you more than you can generate in 24hrs. Not to mention you might get attacked twice in one day, so basically you end up stuck. Just a farm resource for the people who spend real cash. Do they really think that people will consider a game fun if the game is set up to stall you until you pay the extortion fee? If you just want to burn cash on a waste of time, this is the game for you...not me though.
Pay to win and customer support is a joke...
by Churybvggv on 2018/12/30 05:32
TAKE MY WARNING PLEASE!!! They definitely will bait you into playing for awhile. Don’t get me wrong it’s fun for a bit.. until you start losing to everyone, and I mean everyone. You have to buy their “special offers” to be able to keep up. And don’t get me started on trying to upgrade anything.. it will take days to simply upgrade anything, that’s if you wait days to be able to acquire resources, since you’re matched up with unreasonable opponents to try and pvp with others for extra resources. Plus, DO NOT LINK THE WRONG ACCOUNT TO FACEBOOK!!!! I have contacted them several times to unlink my beginner account so that I can link my account I play on my phone. You have to pretty much send them everything you would need for a birth certificate. It’s a joke. In all reality it’s not worth the hassle to try and get into it because two weeks down the road you’ll end up just uninstalling it.
Arena!
by TP10564 on 2019/05/11 11:47
Please fix the balance of the arena. Really tired of being the lowest person in every single battle by at least 2-300 points. And since the last update the pvp on our world are way too high also. When my team was much lower there was a better balance and you could actually engage in battles with other players. Even spending apples to get another player doesn’t help. Thanks in advance. I love the game. Play it everyday. Would love it more if the balances were better. Also,with being last place in the arena every time and only getting 60 coins actually it’s more profitable to watch adds. I hope you understand the frustration. Thanks again.
Fun but only if you pay
by Fish lover 2514 on 2018/02/01 17:29
The actual game is very fun and the animation is great. It’s cool building up your team and upgrading their weapons armor and gear, and getting people to create babies is an interesting tool. However once you get past the first 3 areas, the game ramps up the difficulty so both single player progression as well as pvp fights are almost impossible without paying for gear or leveling your people past 3 stars. Leveling up your rooms can be very tedious with 12 to 24 hour wait times... unless you want to pay of course. I understand money isn’t an object for some people, and I have no problem watching ads for little bonuses but it isn’t right to pit PVP battles with someone who has more than twice the battle score. All 4 of my guys are level 30, and most battles last less than 20sec with me loosing.
Key word: Hustle
by YeyeYEAH01 on 2018/11/21 16:53
Definitely have to pay real money to have an actual advantage in this game. It does start off fine but you quickly realize it’s just like any other game out there...have to spend money to get ahead. There are people have must have spent A LOT because you can no longer win matches or advance much without dropping serious cash. The upgrades take a very long time as well. We’re talking 9 days in some instances and I’m not even at a high level. It was fun but now just seems kind of lame. Another company solely interested in taking your money and not providing a fun, easy playing game. I miss the days when game developers actually cared about the games they developed. Oh well. On to the next one. If you want to spend real money then you should download...if not, keep scrolling.
Beware: This game will cost you more higher you go...
by Kanaelik on 2018/09/28 20:05
I have really been enjoying the game, even though the pay to play aspect is pretty strong as other reviewers have said. However, I just leveled up my throne room again and discovered that once I did, items that you can purchase using things you can earn in the game simply by playing such as dark souls have drastically increased! These items are the exact same items and after upgrading, they began to cost significantly more. In one case, a solid catcher went from roughly 340 diamond to 1100. I understand creating a game to generate revenue and to offer items to buy, but this type of increase in cost is such a blatant money grab and attempt to continue to push players to start spending more and more that I am extremely frustrated. I will be thinking carefully about whether to continue to play.
Great game first 2 weeks, after that it goes quickly downhill!
by Mrinkenb3 on 2018/06/15 05:49
This game started off amazing. After 2 weeks of playing, it is very clear if you are not paying tons of money you will have no chance of being successful. I could play tournaments up to level 55 (I played in over 50 of them, and only was able to get a 3rd place once) they will not let you win unless you pay a bunch of money for upgrades. Now that I am above level 55 for fighters, I cannot even play in the tournaments any more. I’ve sent in 2 tickets for help on this and the answer I have been given is too bad - programming of the game will not work for this feature at that level so you cannot be rewarded for it. Completely cut me off and no reason as to why. Pass on this game as the support staff could care less about you as a person and if you don’t pay big bucks they push you to the bottom of the totem pole.
Fantastic game/mediocre support
by cwinga2 on 2019/06/24 13:36
I love this game, it was fun when I was free to play it and it’s still fun when I put a few dollars into it. The only gripe I have with the game is their support. I was triple charged for a purchase not long ago, received two sets of the desired one purchase(I was fine with it because I’d have likely bought the second one any way at some point) but the third charge, which didn’t yield anything in game, they are denying even after I supplied them receipts from App Store purchase history. Initially they acknowledged it while the third purchase was showing as pending but once it cleared and listed in purchase history they started to deny it. Again, really fun game free2play or pay2play. But if you don’t have the money to lose to billing glitches, don’t risk making purchases.
Very Good Game, So Far.
by FearMartyr on 2018/01/11 07:39
I have played almost two hours so far, so I am actually not too far into this game yet. But thus far it is an amazing game! Very in depth, yet easy to get the hang of. It offers a lot of options and versatility, while being enjoyable and entertaining. I do see (from other reviews, however) that this game is pay to win further into the PvP aspect. Although I have yet to run into this issue, I sincerely hope that it’s not as bad as some say, when and if I do see that side of it. Regardless it’s a good time killer and interesting entertainment. Also the PvE side of the game is a lot of fun and interesting enough to be worth the download, with or without a “ptw” aspect to the PvP side of the game.
Fun to play and free
by Dustylindgren on 2018/12/07 19:33
Seeing the only other review I had to put out the opposite review. This game is fun and runs similar to then same concept as CoC. It takes time to build up your castle and warriors. If you are being beaten too much... intentionally forfeit PvP battles to lower your trophies. It keeps people from just wiping through and finishing the “campaign” if you will. I got board with CoC but playing with the clan I’m in makes it fun and constantly entertaining. I like how there is updates constantly based on things like Halloween, octoberfest, Christmas, etc. Kees it fresh :) I spend literally $5 a month max for auto farming and premium. That’s it!!! And that’s only because I work an avg of 60-70 hr work weeks and can’t check it regularly. Great game keep it up.
It’s a very fun
by Mikaylyn on 2017/12/11 20:55
It is a very fun game, but I personally think and feel like 1 free builder is not enough. This games closest relative is fallout shelter. In fallout shelter there is no wait time on building creation and upgrades. Farther more, of this game is going for the Clash of Clans feel,Clash gives 2 free builders to start. If all players have 2 builders, then we wouldn’t be holding on to soooo.... many resources waiting for a time to use them. Finally I feel as if the arena is almost rigged. I say this because I am always one of the weakest. I have participated in 8 now and every time I get better so does my competition leaving me in a endless cycle with the only way out to spend money. Thank you for a over all great product.
I really like this game!
by amn1011 on 2018/04/02 15:01
I honestly really love this game so far! It reminds me of everything I loved about Fallout Shelter, but I find that I love Hustle castle so much more than Fallout Shelter. Everything I hated about Fallout Shelter isn’t an issue in this game and I love it! If I could say anything that would help feature wise is to have the ability to view all the people in your castle. Unless there is a way to look at everyone and I’m just not seeing it. But that is really my only “complaint” and it really isn’t what I would consider a complaint. It’s really more of a suggestion than anything else. I just wanted to let you know how much I truly enjoy this game and I am so glad I found it!
Unbalanced and bad pulls for items.
by Lissalyn on 2018/02/26 17:58
Special events pulls for items are bad. I don’t mind spending a few bucks here or there to pick up items it supports the makers and updates of games like this. But once u spend money and play everyday to get something and in turn get noughting but crap. That’s when I call it quits. Loot boxes are what’s wrong with all games lately. Then to get to the unbalanced part all u have enemy’s u can battle to get more supplies every time I level up one my enemy’s level can go up by 3 or more as a level 26 now one of my enemy’s is at a level 30. Don’t even think about arena if ur under 28 u will never get anything higher then the basic prize. Yes as level 28 I have plenty of time into the game but as of now I’m done with it and will be deleting it from my phone. Im hopeing to warn people before they waste time unless ur willing to spend lots of real money u won’t get anything good or go anywhere on top.
I love this game 💕💕💕💕💕
by seafoodlover11 on 2018/02/17 21:15
I absolutely love it 😍 this game is very addictive and fun ! At first I played it for like about 5 minutes and I didn’t really like it but then my cousin also downloaded it too so I was like okay now we can play together and so I like it even more and now I absolutely love ❤️ it still . But of course every app or game has its down I have been noticing that my squad power is stronger but I’ve been losing and I really hate it ... idk if that’s how it supposed to be or if it’s a glitch but if it is please fix but I’m still gonna give it a five stars 🌟 thank you and good job 👏🏻 of entertaining me cuz I really idek what do do when i was bored. But now i know what to do again thanks 🙏 😊
Good game but....
by Fry pizzazz on 2019/07/22 18:20
This is a truly fun and addictive game but with the updates comes more difficulty. The dungeon almost seems as it is too difficult now to even get to fight a boss. I don’t understand why you would make it so difficult unless it is to persuade gamers to spend all the money they can on gear that doesn’t really help. Please adjust the difficulty in this game due to the fact that people don’t play games to spend their paychecks on them. Greed is what keeps people from wanting to play these games. If you are looking for a highly addictive gaming experience and are willing do drop all kinds of money on it as of right now this game is for you.
Good until.....
by knighthawk9841 on 2018/01/29 14:44
I loved the game at first, and even got 3 others to start playing as well. However, now we are all having the same problem. When tying in a tournament with other players who have obviously spent more money than I have based on their strength, the developers give them the prize and have been placing me at a lower prize tier. The obvious solution is to call it a tie for the place and award both the prize, however that is not the case. They put the players who have spent more ranked higher and knock others that have used better strategies over money out of the rankings for prizes. When contacted, they do not seek to resolve issues, but blow you off then close the ticket so you cannot discuss with them further. At this point, I would not recommend playing the game. I also noticed my tournament rankings drop when my premium expired.

Bad support
by 122445677909642 on 2019/10/22 15:46
Game is fun, but you better spend money to win. Oh, once you spend money, good chance the game will glitch and you will lose items that you paid for. Put in a ticket, they will tell you the problem was fixed but they do not reimburse lost items... Like it cost them money to do so. Worst customer service ever.
Seems very much like Fallout Shelter
by Royal Daddy-O on 2019/10/22 02:20
Similar layout although I like the change and staying with the comical theme. Small efforts of micro transactions but still very “free to play” playable so far.

A good game overall
by Kbright08 on 2019/10/20 15:57
This is good game overall. It’s definitely a pay to win, but they all are when money is involved. The Arena is probably the part of it I like the least. Getting beat by guys less powerful is something I still don’t understand. But I guess that’s how it goes.
Filled with scams
by Mobotics on 2019/10/20 00:50
The latest is their ad - pay 9.99 and get all these amazing items! You pay 9.99 and the find out you unlocked the rewards - now you can earn them? Total scam! This app should be banned!
What is the title for?
by Khanchris1 on 2019/10/19 01:02
The one problem in this game is that they greater chances of getting better things when getting a chest to get a powerful item or a legendary item and the skins that envoled events also need to have greater chances of getting them
False advertising

Great game

Hitting the paywall
by Ashely Bird on 2019/10/18 00:40
Fun and entertaining, as well as addictive, but there’s a point at which you can’t progress without spending $$$ My castle is full of pregnant unwed mothers 😂 Wish it were reasonable to play without spending. I mean...what are advertisements for?
Hampster wheel.
by Amateur music maker on 2019/10/17 23:01
This game is great fun! A year of my life can be summarized as follows: You upgrade the units so you can get more resources so you can upgrade your units so you can attack more people so that you can upgrade and attack more people and get stronger unit and upgrade your resources so that you can upgrade your units and attack more people ......
Love this game

Nothing like the ads

Best Game Ever

Money out to play
by Annoyed player Amy on 2019/10/16 17:20

False advertising
by Dan7777777770311 on 2019/10/15 02:52
First of all, this is nothing like the advertisement that made me download this game. It is a fallout shelter clone not the puzzle solving game. However it was a large download so I decided to give it a try. After about two days you’ll realize that unless you start paying money you are completely out matched. I spent about $15 and it didn't make a dent. Lastly you can't play with out internet connection so boo on this.
Horrible
by Hans Onmaicok on 2019/10/12 15:20
My review is the same as everyone else’s for the past year. This game is so P2W it’s unreal. Everyone has said the same thing, yet the developers have done nothing to fix it. They just keep milking their cash cow. At my level/trophy range my power sits at just over half a million, yet when I go into the arena not a single competitor has less than 800 thousand. I refuse to spend money on a game that isn’t fair to begin with. Don’t waste your time downloading because it will never be fixed.
Deceptive ads
by Nick94131 on 2019/10/12 02:50
The game isn’t even what the ads show. Unethical
Great
by Fdbenton:) on 2019/10/11 18:18
Listen, it only cost money if you are either impatient or not strategical. This game is just fine without spending money. Just like any game don’t waste the Gems on stupid stuff and save them. It is 4.99 one time price for 1 month to get premium which I think is definitely worth the price. This game is fun and has great content. If you find you are having a difficult time there are many YouTube channels and gaming forums that offer tricks. Perhaps read up before fully developing your castle to get an idea. That will help you level up the quickest and most efficient way. Also yes it is similar to Fallout Shelter in forms of format, but like Fallout Shelter stole their format from This War of Mine a PC game lol. This is just a new style of gaming that I enjoy and it doesn’t make it any less or more enjoyable. I love all 3 of these games lol. The only Cons for this is the friends option. I would like to be able to have in-game friendships. It’s limited to only Facebook Friends. I think it would be nice to at least become friends with my clan members.
Not as advertised
by bearkittykaciesfcf on 2019/10/09 19:54
Literally nothing like the ads you put out. Was a total and complete waste of my time to download and try and play. Don’t advertise this one way and have the game be something completely different.
@ Throne lvl 9...pretty much pay to play
by J054ngrhngg on 2019/10/08 02:41
It’s a 4 because it is interesting, has a few mini games and is a game that will last you 7-12 months depending how often you play. Funny game writers and interesting quirks. Good graphics, fairly addicting and worth the play if this type of game is your style. BUT, to compete decently toward the middle of the game...say throne lvl 6, you’ll need to watch a significant amount of adds or pay to win. At Throne level 9, it’s pretty much pay to play gamers. I would raid 3-4 enemies and gain 350k. However, I’ll get attacked by 2-3 enemies double to triple my level and lose 600-800k. At this point I can’t save to build...so the game is pretty much over. It was good while it lasted.
Slow pace, unbalanced gameplay, terrible support
by Kubmir on 2019/10/07 13:51
I play mainly on Android and have found it’s mildly interesting. The customer support, while it is responsive, is a canned “we can’t help you”. So my advice, don’t purchase anything.. if you have issues, they refuse to help. Go ahead and play games from a developer who will help their customers, there are lots out there

Not the game shown in ads
by Mccloud79 on 2019/10/06 18:25
Like so many other games, not even remotely the game shown in ads. Just another that is nothing but a constant cycle of hurry up and wait. Build some rooms, upgrade some people, accomplish a couple quests then stuck waiting hours or even days (unless you spend a lot) to do anything else. One day I’m hoping to actually find a game that is what the ads show.
Wack
by Joel Varela on 2019/10/06 08:16

All ads
by Not too impressed either on 2019/10/06 04:53
I would say abut 90% of the time you have the game open you’ll be ignoring an ad. There is very little game to it, it’s just watching ads to advance your characters and castle to end up watching more ads.
Yea totally appropriate

by Ana nonimous on 2019/10/04 22:05
This game is fun and engaging. The business model is terrible. Lots of $3-5 charges for little things. I paid for a couple, but I’m done now. Don’t get invested in this game, it will rip you off.

Used to be amazing :(
by LY1025967 on 2019/10/04 11:24
I have had hustle castle for over 2 years or so now and have noticed it’s nothing but PAY TO WIN after you excel a certain range. I’ve had a blast with this game killing time making friends ect and even had and amazing clan of which all said there top tier players have all put spent a decent amount of change..loved the game but will no longer be installing, recommend to those who have a lot of free time and who are willing to spend money on a decent basis, quests were amazing though.
Hustle Castle Hustles You
by Dude anima on 2019/10/04 08:38
This game is incredibly unfair. Once you get slightly leveled up (after spending as much as a AAA game) they put you against people who spent more than you. Complete BS.
Lame
by Xandon on 2019/10/03 04:10
Gimmicky marketing shlop. The spent a ton of time (and money) on visuals with no real game play. It’s all about the upgrade.
Best game ever

Arena
by Mallard711 on 2019/10/02 01:06
Fun game. Great game play. But the arena is some crap. Its a random draw so most of the time you fighting way out your league. Players 2-3 and 4 times stronger than you. I like a challenging game but if u dont like losing alot this isnt for you.

Rinse and repeat game design
by Pielover47 on 2019/09/29 00:18
Pay to have fun Pay to win Endless cycle of the enemy team is stronger than your team. You make your team stronger. The “new” group of enemies are stronger than your team. Endless cycle of being overpowered to encourage spending money. Too many meaningless items to collect. Just a money trap. If you are looking for a new game, don’t bother. It’s pretty much the same business plan as almost all phone games. Rather pay $100 for a game than a free game with in-game purchases that gives you an advantage for spending money. It’s just sad.

by sore poops alot on 2019/09/28 14:22
It’s a great game ,but when I spend diamonds to update a room while another one is under construction and don’t speed other room up ,the game takes my diamonds and doesn’t update after the first is done .
False Advertising
by 112 Reviewer on 2019/09/27 18:26
This game advertises as a puzzle game on social media. I was very disappointed to download it and see it’s another story game.
Good game, but.....
by Tpicfishman on 2019/09/27 18:07
I like the game, and it was really fun at first. But now it takes FOREVER to level people/rooms up and I’m really, really REALLY TIRED of wasting apples in the dungeon when a random player decided not to play at the first checkpoint... at 105,000 apples a pop if your partner decides not to play you should get your apples back!!!!
Bad ad

I Stopped Playing!
by MaineMama77 on 2019/09/26 17:33
This was fun at first, but then it started to get a bit boring. I don’t mind spending a small amount of cash on a game but as a player I shouldn’t have to spend a fortune to get anywhere. I got to a point in the game where I could not upgrade my throne room. In order to do so, I had to upgrade my lumber mills. I couldn’t upgrade my lumber mills because my throne room wasn’t upgraded. Unless I bought an exorbitant amount of diamonds, I was stuck right where I was at. No thanks, I’m done.
Game is nice but costly.
by Zayqywyxc on 2019/09/26 16:36
If you want to level up and get anywhere in the game then expect to shell out a lot of cash.

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.
Bait and switch

Hustled by Hustle Castle Support
by KahalaRock on 2019/09/23 10:40
I had submitted a request to Hustle Castle support to unlink a Facebook account from the game. After two days of waiting, I log onto the game and find that my game was completely reset to a new game id!! They unlinked my Game Center account rather than unlinking the Facebook account as I had requested. I sent a urgent message to Hustle Castle’s support team regarding this problem but have recieved *NO RESPONSE*. I’ve spent hundreds of $$$ on this game and will be contacting Apple Itunes to report this and receive restitution if Hustle Castle support doesn’t resolve this problem ASAP!
Didn’t even download and disappointed!!!
by Nicci929 on 2019/09/23 08:51
I love fallout shelter so I was really excited when I saw the gameplay video mm. The plot is totally something I would be into as well. Then I read the reverse...... Pay to win games piss me off!!! There are SO many reviews that say this game is one of the worst offenders! I get that you worked creating the game and want to make $ on your work, which you absolutely should!!! But there are better ways to do so that MORE people would probably be more likely to pay into! Do a $5 premium version that unlocks a premium gameplay where the better items are more common or something along those lines etc. but NO I will NOT be downloading and feeding into that greedy B.S!

by Aprilsumma on 2019/09/22 18:15
I’m really enjoying this game. The graphics are fun kind of like Futurama style. The game plays not complicated, but I do wish after the tutorial was over there was an easier way to find out things I can’t remember how to do. Still trying to figure everything out.
Poor Player Level Matching
by ChannieBear on 2019/09/22 16:01
Constantly matched to players at excessively higher power levels than my warriors, instead of a good mix of high and low in the arena and in PVP battles on the map. Developers put out update after update saying they are going to fix this and they don’t.
Send equipment to clan members!!
by G dubbbble on 2019/09/22 14:32
Hey developers!! Let’s see a new update where we can send equipment to our friends/clan members! I don’t see why we can’t? This will make the game more competitive and increase the friendship of clan members and friends. I believe this would help out a lot. Please write me back and let me know if we will see this feature in the future!

Hustle Castle
by lillymintchocolatechip on 2019/09/20 19:03
This game is very fun. My daughter is consistently playing it! I give this game 4 stars because although it’s fun, when I win my trophies don’t add up, the just don’t appear! If I could, I would give it 4 in a half stars.
Decent game. Dont upgrade too fast.
by allthenicknamesaretaken123455 on 2019/09/19 12:25
I upgraded my throne room too fast now i cant make any progress in the game. I would reset the game and start over but apparently developers wont let players do that. So i deleted the game and moved on with my life. Too bad. It was kind of fun until every battle was a loss.

Unbalanced game play and uncaring support.
by Dynobytes on 2019/09/17 10:34
Game has tons of potential! Unfortunately the devs and customer support fail to really give a crap about player concerns. When trying to play in tournaments it is apparently set up that players that spend the most money will be the winners. Their matching system that is supposed to pair you up against other players of equal or close to equal skill and power is a joke. The last tournament I played in had 1 player with 86000 squad power, I had 218000 SP and the majority of the other 15 ish players were above 400000 SP. So basically I could squash like a bug 1 player and then get squashed myself. I contacted support and tactfully explained the issue and they gave me a long winded example of how the balancing worked and that ultimately the issue was my strategy and Squad build. How the hell would ANY strategy work against players are double any obtainable strength? Oh I get it, you pay over $100 to get your squad as high a level as possible and wait for days on end while they level up. Silly me!

Horrendously Deceitful
by Spidahmanz on 2019/09/16 14:55
I’ve seen several ads of this game, each ad was different from the rest, and that made the game somewhat interesting. So when I had the opportunity to download it, I found out that I was horrendously deceived. The ads market the game as “adult” themed, yet the game is NOWHERE like that. I would never spend a cent on this pitiful app. The developers are nothing but sleazy, slimy. Greedy goblins that are willing to False advertise their app just to get some money.
Starts off fun and quickly becomes confusing
by Dirk phoenix on 2019/09/16 00:20

Armor and weapon idea
by GuyWhoIsImportant on 2019/09/15 14:35
I love this game and as of right now the only thing I could think of that would make it better is making more different unique armor styles and weapons styles. And a new kinda black knight type of rare armor would be pretty cool too.

Definitely Pay to win game
by IgLikerApp on 2019/09/13 20:03
The game concept and play is fun, but you seriously can’t compete in the Arenas with the people that pay money. My power is a level 400k and they have me fighting against players that have 1.1-1.4mil. I emailed the game Devs and they basically said I need to review my “strategy” and invest in the game if I want to win! What a joke!

Matchmaking
by Jjjjjjgggggggggg on 2019/09/11 16:43
I’ve been playing this game for about a year or so now. I really enjoy it but I’m not sure why y’all haven’t fixed the matchmaking yet. Like another reviewer said, I have all these tourney tickets but never use them because at 1.6 mill overall I’m getting paired with 4-7 mill overalls. Can you please explain to me how that’s fair at all? The tourney feature is virtually useless to me and I wish it wasn’t. Please fix your matchmaking system it is garbage as of rn.

by baddude007 on 2019/09/09 06:28
This game has so many bugs not sure where to start. The ranking system is so screwed up that even though you are so much stronger than than another team you loose because they have some supreme gear. It takes forever to rank up. The game puts you in a losing situation by making you compete against players twice your strength. Don’t waste your time and get sucked in to it being fun early on.
FYI on this game
by CharlesClair on 2019/09/08 22:58
If you are on for any extended amount of time they accuse you of suspicious magical activity. Why that is I have no idea. It seems that you can only stay on for extended amounts of time is if you are spending money on the game. I believe this defeats the purpose of a so called free game. Actually I would call this fraud. Look out.

Need to adjust player levels
by bryanskee808 on 2019/09/05 06:00
The game if fun but arena battles are really awful!! Players that challenge you are 2 times or 3 times your power level and they seem to always win obviously. The leveling system needs a remake so players in the same range can play together instead of being abused by higher leveled players. Other than that fun game on your down time.
pay to win
by cirnwbaigkgmsbz on 2019/09/04 23:12
fun to build the castle but that’s about it i’ve never won or finished anything of significance even after caving to pay still not a win on the books and every event just gives you stuff out of your range of use forcing you to upgrade and wait months to use it or the developers just hate me and have just put wall after wall in front of me with nothing good on the other side i regret ever getting this game
Need real money to enjoy it.
by Cordel96 on 2019/09/04 09:55
This game is fun but you need to keep spending money to actually progress at a reasonable rate. I like the game but you have to buy too much like the goblin assistant and the premium. It’s not worth it in the long run.

Do Better 😡
by BrgsMommy on 2019/09/03 05:28
I wish I could give a higher rating because I actually do love the game. But I absolutely hate that you have to pay so much money for everything!! It gets ridiculous!! Especially with this new event where you win the opportunity to BUY a legendary artifact. That’s just ridiculous! I hate that rich people or people who just blow money away get to be “better” than those who actually play and can’t afford it. I seriously get burned out because I get tired of fighting 3 mils when I’m a 1.7 mil. Like something has got to give here!! If it weren’t for my clan mates this game would be deleted!!
Wonderful Game One Problem
by Donno.19 on 2019/09/03 04:52

Im a fresh fish again and have to start from the bottom is there any way I can get my old account information back. I deleted the app trying to make space on my phone now that ive redownloaded it all my progress got wiped.

Great game and developers listen to you
by BruinsMcWoo on 2019/09/02 03:33
I don’t know what you guys are doing with the arena. I know you tried fixing it but it’s still not leveling out with ppl of comparable stats. Im in the lower 300’s now and everyone is been playing against have been in the 700’s 500’s and 400’s. It’s not worth playing arenas. Another issue I think you may want to take a look at... If I’m trying to build a room and/or upgrade with my diamonds it won’t let any of us because we may not have the “storage capacity”. What’s the point of having the option to faster upgrades through diamonds if we need to make other upgrades first?! Isn’t that the point of using your diamonds lol?! Other than that it’s a GREAT game and fun to play.
Pay to pay to pay to win
by Nussant on 2019/09/02 02:58
Could be an awesome game but let me give a perfect example... $5.00 a month premium membership = fair enough $10.00 special event pass to make grinding worth it = ok Really insulting after paying that to play for hours in the special event to find that instead of earning the power gear you earned the right to buy the power gear at $20.00 a crack. Yes, I am done spending money on this Ap. They are just too greedy.

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.

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.
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.
Fallout Shelter Clone
by Crysomemore 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 Jon-Boy 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.
Worst support team ever
by Timothy Lyon on 2019/03/04 12:38
I’m giving this game or bad review because the service that they provide with their support team is absolutely the worst experience of my life I’ve been ripped off $100 from this game and they don’t even have the time of day to go and look through their tickets in fact they told me to just go ask my credit card company to reimburse it. They didn’t even want to handle it themselves.I put in multiple tickets and they closed every single one of them asking me not to put in multiple tickets because it’s just going to extend the time so they have to take to look over my issues, basically threatened me to stop sending tickets because they won’t respond to them. So I decided that if they’re going to make me go out of my way to get my money back that I’m going to also go out of my way to let people know what they’re getting themselves into. Don’t make in app purchases unless you feel like taking the risk of not getting your money at all nor your product. Oh yeah not to mention the support system takes their sweet time getting to you I have spent over 24 hours to 48 hours waiting for a response on one of my tickets and keep in mind not even 1 million people play this game. I’m starting to see why.
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.
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
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.
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.
Good in the beginning...
by drock001 on 2019/03/28 17:48
When starting the game it’s fun.. and it’s equal.. then as you get higher up it becomes almost distorted in the way that you can seemingly attack players that are equal or lower skill level and always seem to lose... its almost as if they want you to spend money so you can buy more or better equipment so you can beat the players you are already significantly ahead of skill level wise... and then still lose to the people who are higher then you.. been playing for about 3 months and loved it until I have gotten to this point.. when complaining about how it doesn’t seem right... they respond with.. we can’t give strategic information out.. so I decided to change all strategies and equipment and what do you know.. same outcome. Really enjoyed the game but obviously at this point it’s quite frustrating since I can’t beat the people above me who are most likely bots and also can’t beat the people who are below me unless I pay to get better equipment. Anyways anyone who plays this game I wish you luck! Try not to get to irritated with it! -Derek
Extremely slowly progressive game, typical pay to win
by Mayham80 on 2019/01/26 15:57
First the good points, the graphics and gameplay action is good. The potential for being a great game is there but not as of now. Now the bad points, typical pay to win. The upgrades are extremely slow and can last days unless you spend diamonds to build instantly which requires a lot of money, to get good items requires real money or a lot of diamonds and the items you do get are always for mages. In game fighting is set at 1x speed and can not be sped up unless you purchase premium biweekly or monthly package (in-game fighting speed should always be changeable in standard game play!). All resources very slow to gain and can also pay to increase. Customer support very unhelpful, won’t admit or help when reporting glitches. Unless you plan on playing this game for years or paying ridiculous amounts of money just to be strong enough to keep up with other players, really don’t recommend. Plenty of other games out there that benefit non paying players, more evenly.
Unique “City Builder” Management Sim
by Lord Travis on 2018/10/07 16:02
There are a ton of stupid city building games in the vein of clash of clans that are all clones with little to offer the genre. Hustle Castle is something different for a change! Each production room of your castle needs to be manned by a villager that you either rescue or create through couples in the living room (G rated baby magic). Those villagers each have stats that can be modified with items, so there’s some strategy in determining who should be a warrior, treasurer, food producer, scientist, etc... It has goofy characters and art similar to Family Guy. I’ve played about a week and haven’t felt disappointed. There is a competitive pvp mode that I am sure paid players have an advantage, but you can jump right into joining a clan and get assistance with little things and learn the game. I cannot give 5 stars because there’s no such thing as a perfect game. But otherwise decent fun and unique take.
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.
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..
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
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.
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.
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.
Potential
by Turdburglartom on 2018/06/19 20:05
Pros and Cons Love the graphics and art work More casual than Fallout Shelter. Big plus PVP! Art feels in the vein of Family guy and American Dad. Easy disasters that don’t annoy like FOS “Populating” actually has a timer you can see Lots of free chests (see below) No worries of your people actually dying Rooms customization tool!!!YES!!! And it does NOT cost anything ! Woo! Big win over FOS Can collect gems, very slowly however Game runs smooth Loading is fast (IPhone 8 plus) Cons Sound altogether are so so Match making, as in most games, is designed to push you to purchase. Build times get long quickly Gems are too expensive for speed ups and actual purchase. I feel like I only care about my attack/defense team. All others are there just to fill a void. Why can’t I keep moving forward each stage in the campaign? Why do I always have to go back to the castle first??? Gear inventory management is horrible Chests aren’t very rewarding Overall, the male models never look “cool” My Biggest reason for frustration and lower stars: Accidentally dragging a character out of the training box (all training rooms) and their training time resets completely. W T F... This makes me think the developers are Retarded or wanting you to spend cash on “your” mistake to fix it. We are not talking a couple minutes here either...we are talking hours and days will reset. Again....W T F
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.
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!
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.
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
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.
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.
Need The Developers To See This
by Developers Please Read This on 2018/07/06 02:30
This is a fun gaming, especially if you’re involved in a clan. Unfortunately, in the clan that I take part of, the clan leader has (one of the people who can start clan wars) has become inactive. The only other person who can start clan wars is the deputy leader (he isn’t very active). I hope the developers see this and create a new rank such as “officer leader” or something like that, in order for not just my clan but other clans can take part of more clan wars. This new rank could be promoted by the clan leader or deputy leader. Clan wars is very fun to take part of, so this is the reason a feature like this could improve any clan. Hopefully the developers respond to this. Thanks, a loyal Hustle Castle Player.
Designed to stall you and waste your time..
by Ewartlambert on 2018/03/23 20:16
With hopes that you will try to swim against the flow using real cash, this game is a shameless gold digging waste of time. It could be fun if they didn’t set it up like that. This is how it goes, you start of making progress like normal. You can fight other castles for loot and grow faster, but the thing is. The game gives you trophies for defending, but no resources and the resources take days to build up. So what happens is you will no longer be able to make up the resource difference by attacking other people (since the game boosted your rank while you were away with the defensive trophies) and now you are stuck with opponents that are much stronger than you. So now you are forceful to either wait for your resources to build up (upgrades cost 3times what your room can hold, which means 3days of collection hoping you don’t get attacked which will cost you more than you can generate in 24hrs. Not to mention you might get attacked twice in one day, so basically you end up stuck. Just a farm resource for the people who spend real cash. Do they really think that people will consider a game fun if the game is set up to stall you until you pay the extortion fee? If you just want to burn cash on a waste of time, this is the game for you...not me though.
Pay to win and customer support is a joke...
by Churybvggv on 2018/12/30 05:32
TAKE MY WARNING PLEASE!!! They definitely will bait you into playing for awhile. Don’t get me wrong it’s fun for a bit.. until you start losing to everyone, and I mean everyone. You have to buy their “special offers” to be able to keep up. And don’t get me started on trying to upgrade anything.. it will take days to simply upgrade anything, that’s if you wait days to be able to acquire resources, since you’re matched up with unreasonable opponents to try and pvp with others for extra resources. Plus, DO NOT LINK THE WRONG ACCOUNT TO FACEBOOK!!!! I have contacted them several times to unlink my beginner account so that I can link my account I play on my phone. You have to pretty much send them everything you would need for a birth certificate. It’s a joke. In all reality it’s not worth the hassle to try and get into it because two weeks down the road you’ll end up just uninstalling it.
Arena!
by TP10564 on 2019/05/11 11:47
Please fix the balance of the arena. Really tired of being the lowest person in every single battle by at least 2-300 points. And since the last update the pvp on our world are way too high also. When my team was much lower there was a better balance and you could actually engage in battles with other players. Even spending apples to get another player doesn’t help. Thanks in advance. I love the game. Play it everyday. Would love it more if the balances were better. Also,with being last place in the arena every time and only getting 60 coins actually it’s more profitable to watch adds. I hope you understand the frustration. Thanks again.
Fun but only if you pay
by Fish lover 2514 on 2018/02/01 17:29
The actual game is very fun and the animation is great. It’s cool building up your team and upgrading their weapons armor and gear, and getting people to create babies is an interesting tool. However once you get past the first 3 areas, the game ramps up the difficulty so both single player progression as well as pvp fights are almost impossible without paying for gear or leveling your people past 3 stars. Leveling up your rooms can be very tedious with 12 to 24 hour wait times... unless you want to pay of course. I understand money isn’t an object for some people, and I have no problem watching ads for little bonuses but it isn’t right to pit PVP battles with someone who has more than twice the battle score. All 4 of my guys are level 30, and most battles last less than 20sec with me loosing.
Key word: Hustle
by YeyeYEAH01 on 2018/11/21 16:53
Definitely have to pay real money to have an actual advantage in this game. It does start off fine but you quickly realize it’s just like any other game out there...have to spend money to get ahead. There are people have must have spent A LOT because you can no longer win matches or advance much without dropping serious cash. The upgrades take a very long time as well. We’re talking 9 days in some instances and I’m not even at a high level. It was fun but now just seems kind of lame. Another company solely interested in taking your money and not providing a fun, easy playing game. I miss the days when game developers actually cared about the games they developed. Oh well. On to the next one. If you want to spend real money then you should download...if not, keep scrolling.
Beware: This game will cost you more higher you go...
by Kanaelik on 2018/09/28 20:05
I have really been enjoying the game, even though the pay to play aspect is pretty strong as other reviewers have said. However, I just leveled up my throne room again and discovered that once I did, items that you can purchase using things you can earn in the game simply by playing such as dark souls have drastically increased! These items are the exact same items and after upgrading, they began to cost significantly more. In one case, a solid catcher went from roughly 340 diamond to 1100. I understand creating a game to generate revenue and to offer items to buy, but this type of increase in cost is such a blatant money grab and attempt to continue to push players to start spending more and more that I am extremely frustrated. I will be thinking carefully about whether to continue to play.
Great game first 2 weeks, after that it goes quickly downhill!
by Mrinkenb3 on 2018/06/15 05:49
This game started off amazing. After 2 weeks of playing, it is very clear if you are not paying tons of money you will have no chance of being successful. I could play tournaments up to level 55 (I played in over 50 of them, and only was able to get a 3rd place once) they will not let you win unless you pay a bunch of money for upgrades. Now that I am above level 55 for fighters, I cannot even play in the tournaments any more. I’ve sent in 2 tickets for help on this and the answer I have been given is too bad - programming of the game will not work for this feature at that level so you cannot be rewarded for it. Completely cut me off and no reason as to why. Pass on this game as the support staff could care less about you as a person and if you don’t pay big bucks they push you to the bottom of the totem pole.
Fantastic game/mediocre support
by cwinga2 on 2019/06/24 13:36
I love this game, it was fun when I was free to play it and it’s still fun when I put a few dollars into it. The only gripe I have with the game is their support. I was triple charged for a purchase not long ago, received two sets of the desired one purchase(I was fine with it because I’d have likely bought the second one any way at some point) but the third charge, which didn’t yield anything in game, they are denying even after I supplied them receipts from App Store purchase history. Initially they acknowledged it while the third purchase was showing as pending but once it cleared and listed in purchase history they started to deny it. Again, really fun game free2play or pay2play. But if you don’t have the money to lose to billing glitches, don’t risk making purchases.
Very Good Game, So Far.
by FearMartyr on 2018/01/11 07:39
I have played almost two hours so far, so I am actually not too far into this game yet. But thus far it is an amazing game! Very in depth, yet easy to get the hang of. It offers a lot of options and versatility, while being enjoyable and entertaining. I do see (from other reviews, however) that this game is pay to win further into the PvP aspect. Although I have yet to run into this issue, I sincerely hope that it’s not as bad as some say, when and if I do see that side of it. Regardless it’s a good time killer and interesting entertainment. Also the PvE side of the game is a lot of fun and interesting enough to be worth the download, with or without a “ptw” aspect to the PvP side of the game.
Fun to play and free
by Dustylindgren on 2018/12/07 19:33
Seeing the only other review I had to put out the opposite review. This game is fun and runs similar to then same concept as CoC. It takes time to build up your castle and warriors. If you are being beaten too much... intentionally forfeit PvP battles to lower your trophies. It keeps people from just wiping through and finishing the “campaign” if you will. I got board with CoC but playing with the clan I’m in makes it fun and constantly entertaining. I like how there is updates constantly based on things like Halloween, octoberfest, Christmas, etc. Kees it fresh :) I spend literally $5 a month max for auto farming and premium. That’s it!!! And that’s only because I work an avg of 60-70 hr work weeks and can’t check it regularly. Great game keep it up.
It’s a very fun
by Mikaylyn on 2017/12/11 20:55
It is a very fun game, but I personally think and feel like 1 free builder is not enough. This games closest relative is fallout shelter. In fallout shelter there is no wait time on building creation and upgrades. Farther more, of this game is going for the Clash of Clans feel,Clash gives 2 free builders to start. If all players have 2 builders, then we wouldn’t be holding on to soooo.... many resources waiting for a time to use them. Finally I feel as if the arena is almost rigged. I say this because I am always one of the weakest. I have participated in 8 now and every time I get better so does my competition leaving me in a endless cycle with the only way out to spend money. Thank you for a over all great product.
I really like this game!
by amn1011 on 2018/04/02 15:01
I honestly really love this game so far! It reminds me of everything I loved about Fallout Shelter, but I find that I love Hustle castle so much more than Fallout Shelter. Everything I hated about Fallout Shelter isn’t an issue in this game and I love it! If I could say anything that would help feature wise is to have the ability to view all the people in your castle. Unless there is a way to look at everyone and I’m just not seeing it. But that is really my only “complaint” and it really isn’t what I would consider a complaint. It’s really more of a suggestion than anything else. I just wanted to let you know how much I truly enjoy this game and I am so glad I found it!
Unbalanced and bad pulls for items.
by Lissalyn on 2018/02/26 17:58
Special events pulls for items are bad. I don’t mind spending a few bucks here or there to pick up items it supports the makers and updates of games like this. But once u spend money and play everyday to get something and in turn get noughting but crap. That’s when I call it quits. Loot boxes are what’s wrong with all games lately. Then to get to the unbalanced part all u have enemy’s u can battle to get more supplies every time I level up one my enemy’s level can go up by 3 or more as a level 26 now one of my enemy’s is at a level 30. Don’t even think about arena if ur under 28 u will never get anything higher then the basic prize. Yes as level 28 I have plenty of time into the game but as of now I’m done with it and will be deleting it from my phone. Im hopeing to warn people before they waste time unless ur willing to spend lots of real money u won’t get anything good or go anywhere on top.
I love this game 💕💕💕💕💕
by seafoodlover11 on 2018/02/17 21:15
I absolutely love it 😍 this game is very addictive and fun ! At first I played it for like about 5 minutes and I didn’t really like it but then my cousin also downloaded it too so I was like okay now we can play together and so I like it even more and now I absolutely love ❤️ it still . But of course every app or game has its down I have been noticing that my squad power is stronger but I’ve been losing and I really hate it ... idk if that’s how it supposed to be or if it’s a glitch but if it is please fix but I’m still gonna give it a five stars 🌟 thank you and good job 👏🏻 of entertaining me cuz I really idek what do do when i was bored. But now i know what to do again thanks 🙏 😊
Good game but....
by Fry pizzazz on 2019/07/22 18:20
This is a truly fun and addictive game but with the updates comes more difficulty. The dungeon almost seems as it is too difficult now to even get to fight a boss. I don’t understand why you would make it so difficult unless it is to persuade gamers to spend all the money they can on gear that doesn’t really help. Please adjust the difficulty in this game due to the fact that people don’t play games to spend their paychecks on them. Greed is what keeps people from wanting to play these games. If you are looking for a highly addictive gaming experience and are willing do drop all kinds of money on it as of right now this game is for you.
Good until.....
by knighthawk9841 on 2018/01/29 14:44
I loved the game at first, and even got 3 others to start playing as well. However, now we are all having the same problem. When tying in a tournament with other players who have obviously spent more money than I have based on their strength, the developers give them the prize and have been placing me at a lower prize tier. The obvious solution is to call it a tie for the place and award both the prize, however that is not the case. They put the players who have spent more ranked higher and knock others that have used better strategies over money out of the rankings for prizes. When contacted, they do not seek to resolve issues, but blow you off then close the ticket so you cannot discuss with them further. At this point, I would not recommend playing the game. I also noticed my tournament rankings drop when my premium expired.
