Terrible customer service
by Firemedic director on 2022/01/19 15:58
I purchased stuff for an event I didn’t receive was told by support it would be sent shortly it wasn’t event ended and finished 11th. Outside of prize. Then it’s been three weeks of the same run around asking for screen shots proof and when sent close ticket there are tons of these on message boards be careful and the review about cheaper packages isn’t true. Which wouldn’t be an issue but customer service non existing and when you ask for a refund for there error apple has no problem with it but they threaten to lock and delete your account. Played many games like this over the years. Yet customer service has to be one dog the worst I experienced. Be aware with this game. state 878

Easy to follow, low priced packages
by Yesdnyl99 on 2020/07/28 05:00
I’ve played a couple of games like this one. Upgrade, train, defeat, support your alliance by trading and lowering their time to upgrade, attack other alliances. One in particular I played was difficult to follow at first. They gave a quick tutorial and set you free then never helped you understand how certain upgrade points applied to other parts of the game in order to increase defense and overall strength and knights. You needed communication with your alliance to get help. If you also did not buy enough packages ($5-100), you were going to lose to other alliances who were constantly attacking. This one however encourages you to grow your food and defeat zombies to get better. The packages are $4.99 which makes it easier. Also, when you don’t have enough resources to build or defeat, the game shows you how to get them with a cursor showing you what to tap to help you out. It completely guides you even when you’ve been playing for a while. Still very helpful. There’s a lot of hidden areas to tap to grab the resources you’ve worked for. There’s events to work towards too. There’s also skins for your headquarters which gives you abilities and looks fun, theres options to change your hero, you can change your profile photo to your own or a character’s, you can also arrange your base and make it look however you want.
Game dictate your life.
by lackofcoin on 2021/12/30 14:12
If you’re looking for a game that will pretty much take over your whole life you have found the right one. If you’re trying to enjoy a holiday with your family, know that this game will plan an event to interfere. If you choose your family over your game, you may come back to your village being zeroed. Such as what happened to me. You spent a lot of money and time building things up, and really don’t know the rules or how to get certain things even after six months of playing, this game still leaves a mystery. You find you’re doing things wrong which cost you a lot of time and then find others that know what they’re doing but won’t share that information with you even though they’re on the same team as you. They will take you and lead you into battles and won’t explain things to you and then they end up getting you in trouble because you don’t know what you’re doing. Some of your leaders will badmouth other teams which will cause the other teams to come after everybody in the group, not just the one that’s doing the bad mouthing so pick your alliance wisely. Streamers are there to take even more money from you. After awhile the game gets repetitive and you need to set an alarm for them. Make sure you are playing the time zone as most of your alliance or you will be left out of many good events. Plan to rack up $1000 on your credit card yearly. I did and I am frugal. After investing so much, hard to stop playing.
Fair and unique
by birbitto on 2021/09/26 00:39
I went in to SoS with indifferent and honestly low expectations. The ads I’ve seen don’t do it justice though I know it’s a hard genre to advertise. I really like the multiple things you can do instead of just managing your settlement. I think the little exploration tasks and survival challenges really add flavor to it and are pretty fun. The in game transactions are honestly fair priced and you still get a lot of biocaps for completing missions so unless you have something specific in mind you might not even need to buy to progress. I like the multiple chiefs and their different combat abilities too. I think the events are pretty neat. The dailys are really beneficial too. If I had any criticism it’d be that it might be nice to have troops linger in the battlefield instead of completely returning. It can be a little cumbersome to have two intel missions right next to each other, 80km out, and have to wait 3 minutes for them to come back to send them out again. Though it’s entirely possible I’ve missed something. All in all, I’m having fun with it. Being in an alliance actually feels helpful for timers and such when in other games I’ve barely noticed their assistance. For reference for where I’m at in the game — I’m upgrading my HQ to 18 and I’ve been playing religiously for a week.
Needs some additional help
by Porkchop420 on 2020/09/20 08:33
Okay so the game is basically pretty cool but it has some draw backs first of all u less you spend money it’s hard to collect all the players cause you have to collect pieces of them and if you get them you rarely get them again to level up but you’ll get the same 2 characters till there generals and the dam game goes into over drive and when you do the searches like your supposed to now all of a sudden the game wants to give you 5 of that character now and you cannot even use them any more why not rotate the players you do need why does it give you the same 2 people and you can’t use those pieces anymore. Also when your in a clan you cannot share your resources with you guild mates on all other games you can share supplies within your guild and they tax you for it which is very helpful cause if your attacked and all of your supplies are taken and they have killed all your troops it will take you a week just to get back to what you had because it takes for ever to collect the resources back to get your troops back if you could share withi. Your guild you could put a tax on the resources that you share so like if you shared a million food or wood the tax could be high to begin with but if you leveled up say a trading station your taxes of resoreces could be reduced but never less than say 10% I just wish it would be more team friendly that away. Other then that it’s an okay game
Horrible Support
by jpack on 2021/03/13 14:49
The game is similar to others out there. Build a settlement, attack zombies and compete with others for rewards. Warning, it is an expensive game. I’m fine with that, my issue is that their support is horrible. If you have any issue, it’s your fault. The game is riddled with bugs that lead to missing rewards (both free, and ones YOU PAID FOR), also some of the benefits (called buffs) you purchase won’t always work. Again, if you contact support, they will immediately say it’s your fault and close the support ticket. I found too many bugs that took things away from me that I paid for, so I stopped putting any money in. I also reported a few mystery charges I did not initiate, again it’s your fault, not theirs. I suggest you play it for free, and resist the urge to spend, because the developers will just find a way to steal from you. Or better yet, just move on to try one of the many other games that are exactly like this. Maybe those developers treat their customers better. *** Response to developer: More time? Each time I submitted an issue you were quick to close the ticket without asking any follow up questions. I had to submit the same ticket three times for the same bug. Each time having to re-explain the issue to every new agent who responded. You were not interested in fixing the issue, you just wanted to blow off your customer who spent A LOT of money. So, I’m done spending money. I’ll play for free with that kind of support. ***
Love it! BUT...
by Pppllllooolllooo on 2020/07/09 13:05
I love this game highly addicted and happy to have spent money on it. There hasn’t been a game I’ve actually enjoyed this much until this game. BUT, I have recently hit a brick wall, I’m a clan leader but the alliance has hit a brick wall with the alliance towers and research because there are no Gas Alliance Nodes along the outskirts meaning you have to move closer towards the middle to get Gas alliance nodes, unfortunately it also makes it harder to move because clans already Staken claim to areas within the map making it harder for smaller clans to grow and build along side of them. Honestly there should be more Gas alliance nodes all over the map especially on the outskirts of the map so it’s fair for all alliances. Also there should also be a way to @ people in chat whether it’s one person or the clan as a whole. Lastly I feel like clan leaders should have more reign during alliance events for example Alliance Showdown, give the clan leader the chance to move people to different lanes. Honestly, I want to give this game 5 stars hands down, but there are just things that limit growth in the game whether it’s individual or as a clan. But I still love the game I just wish things could be added to the game ie; Gas Alliance Nodes around the outskirts, since there are already farm, wood, and metal Nodes. It forces smaller clans to have to move where there is no space cause stronger clans already taken up space in the central parts of the map.
Fun and Addictive! LOTS to do!
by BrindleStudio on 2020/07/23 17:47
I have been playing a week or so; it is a fun addictive game with tons to do. Pokes to spend real money on the game are pretty reasonably not in your face but easily found if you want to go that route. I did spend about $15 on a top-up special and it gave me a big start as far as being able to speed up training and upgrading of my buildings. Worth it to me. Heck, I’d easily spend that on lunch and now that we’re in the COVID-19 era, I’m not going out to lunch as often as I used to so might as well still have some fun! I joined an alliance that is casual but active, which is nice! I love the events and the way that missions and other tasks are kinda staggered so you can play for pretty long periods of time. I wish that I could queue up research when individual research tasks are less than 10 minutes, maybe up to a limit of three tasks. Not a fan of shooty stuff where I have to control individual heroes so I’m really glad I can set the shooty challenges on auto and 3x speed...it is amusing to watch the zombies shamble into bullets and die in that mode. Nicely designed, visually attractive game. I will play for a long time, for sure. I wish there was more stuff to decorate my settlement with! Maybe I will discover there are as I progress.
Average free game with good graphics
by deano19892012 on 2020/09/17 07:16
Overall SoS is a good enough game for being free. The graphics are good and there’s plenty of content to do for being a free game. That being said, the developers make it clear they want you to spend money by constantly putting different ‘packs’ everywhere on your screen that can be purchased. One example is that every time you load the game there’s a pack that is offered for 4.99 (right now it’s the Survival of the Fittest pack). You can also pay to have a second construction slot to upgrade buildings, which is reasonable for the price. What isn’t reasonable is that every time you create a new character, you have to purchase the second construction slot again. This was very misleading because I purchased it on my first character thinking it was a one-time only purchase because it literally says that in the game! The game can be played without ever having to pay money, but just know that you won’t ever be as powerful as the people who pay for power(yes this game is pay-to-win). I’ve been playing this game for over 10 months now and I do enjoy it, although sometimes I do get annoyed at how much the game tries to advertise different things that can be purchased. If you are looking for a new game to play that is free I would recommend trying out SoS, but just note that it’s pay-to-win and you’re going to get bombarded with ‘deals’ and offers in the game.
Good game with the same old story
by Jozzut on 2020/12/24 20:59
The game is fun and the graphics are very well done. But as is the norm for this type of game it’s fun for a few days then you need to shell out $$$ to get things done without waiting hours for upgrades on buildings or troops to finish. This game has good game play and lots of missions to keep you busy but once again it’s a game where the biggest players destroy the smaller players constantly so what’s the sense of playing. I don’t mind being attacked and losing a battle and resources but there no way to continue to grow when you are attacked and destroyed several times a day. Put a limit on how much a player can lose before a free and I mean free shield pops up to save loss of resources based on player level. I liked this game and even in an alliance you get destroyed. It’s a shame I don’t mind spending here and there to play but the cost of a shield is way too expensive. Just another good game that’s going to lose out on the volume of player to please the few big spenders. Such a shame this was a well designed game. It’s almost a great game. But who wants to grind and have nothing to show for it when your not on and have to start over. If you lose a battle pvp you might as well quit moving your base and a shield (peace flare) will break you wallet. I understand the game needs to make money but 100 small spenders will spend more than 1 big spender food for thought.
Addictive

Addictive game. The first few levels are great but as you advance upgrades to your buildings take longer and longer until upgrades take hours to complete. To make matters worse you hit a wall on what you can do without upgrading. You cannot queue up your upgrades so the next one starts when the one you are working on finishes. That would be a great feature to help with advancing gameplay while you are off doing real life things like working, going to school or sleeping. You cannot add a second construction slot to work on other things unless you pay real money. The same goes for training troops. At higher levels it takes hours. Upgrading your hero hits a wall. The really good upgrades, you guessed it, costs real money. Exploring the world? You can send out tow groups to gather resources, which once again, takes hours on higher levels. You cannot get more groups to send out unless, you guessed it again, pay real money. Researching new technologies. You hit the upgrade wall and you can’t research more than one thing at a time unless, you guessed it, pay real money. Do you see a pattern emerging? After a certain point this becomes a wait forever for something to happen or pay to play. I am almost a week into it and have already hit the pay to play wall. I don’t see it staying on my iPad more than another week unless something changes.

I got this game about a week ago, so far I’m liking it. I did go ahead and purchase the Extra Labor Pack, my card got charged but I did not get the pack.. i had to “update” my payment so it directed me to the App Store and I put okay and the payment went through then when I went back the the game it said “payment failed”. So I was like okay whatever, I was pretty hesitant to buy it in the first place so I didn’t mind that it didn’t go through, he next day I check my purchase history in the App Store and I had a payment pending for The State Of Survival.... I go and check my bank app AND of course the payment is pending. So I tried disputing it with apple first and all they said was to contact the game support. So I went to see if I can find a number or something AND nothing. So I have to now dispute it with my bank and it is very annoying that the payment went through but I didn’t get the pack... which I really want because it has that extra slot to build two things at once, which would be fantastic. Now I’m just going to wait for my money to get back into my account and hopefully the pack is still there so I can purchase the thing and actually get what I’m paying for lol. Small rant but good game just be cautious if you’re purchasing anything in the app.
Different from the others
by Barchenowa on 2020/06/11 18:10
I began playing this game out of boredom with no expectations or desire to continue to play past the first day. This was not the case however. As soon as I went through the standard learning curve that all mobile RPG/Strategy base building games have, I knew it was a game I can see myself playing and investing time into. This game has a lot of the elements that other successful and popular games of the same genre has, but it is unique enough to keep you interested because it has added features and mechanics to the game that I personally haven’t seen in others. This game doesn’t feel like a “copy and paste” clone of other well known games that many many others on the app stores have become. The best part about this game in my opinion, is that I do not feel as if it a straight up cash grab game that pressures you into feeling like the only way you will succeed is if you spend a lot of money; if I spend any money, it will be because I want to not because I feel as if I have to. You can enjoy and actually compete within the game without ever spending any money. Overall, it’s a well made game that’s unique enough for veteran mobile game players to at least try out!
Great game but
by KAS1K5SPIRIT on 2021/02/09 13:01
I love the game but if the creators are reading the reviews please listen to this one I would like more customization in the construction area of decorations because I want to customize my HQ more like for example add something like cut down logs to sit on for like a camp fire set up like I can put a mini bonfire then put logs around it and have a little camp set up and other customization things around the game like customizing your own character you can unlock things like shirts shoes socks pants accessories like jewelry sunglasses or glasses and you don’t have to go that far into it but add things like eyecolor and facial hair and expressions. Please! Let us have a 360 view so we can move around our view so we can see more to the HQ and other things in the game and also let us rotate things that we were allowed to rotate before like our warehouse or farm or lumberyard in those rotate those all the stuff so we can customize it more to this will be a big update but please do it if other people are reading this please like it so they can do this you don’t have to but if you agree you can. 😀👍😍👌 great job on the game Kings group loving it so far just more customization please
Could be a great game... bullying ruins it!
by RenaHen1969 on 2021/11/04 04:19
It’s supposedly free to play but unless you put in a lot of money, unless you have a endless supply of cash or your mommy and daddy‘s credit card you aren’t going to get anywhere but crushed. And the developers don’t care, or that’s the feeling that is received by everyone. There’s different levels that your base can be at and different stars your base can have. I’ve watched repeatedly as alliances that have eight star bases attack little alliances and crush level 28, level 25, heck I’ve even seen a level 20 go down under a 8 star base, because they don’t have the cash to put into it. There’s nothing to stop much much higher levels from killing states. Those are called dead states, and there’s a lot of that going on. There is nothing put into place to stop the rampant killing, BULLYING, that’s going on. The Devs could put a stop by just halting anyone from attacking three levels below their own, but that might stop the money from coming in and they can’t have that. It’s going to come to a point where everyone leaves and the only ones left are the credit card players, and soon they’ll have to attack their own. This game was fun, it’s just not anymore. So if you have a credit card it’s a great game for you, if you don’t have a credit card with an endless supply of cash stay away from this game.
My state is dead
by THEPaNzEE1 on 2021/08/22 22:42
State 72 is dead top 5 clans went an joined forced into 1 clan cause there arent enough players to play against in the state itself an now anyone who comes into are state is just dying cause we have all the strongest people in the state so now all we can do is events games fun but would like to smash the low population states together , also people in my state are running 3 different accounts an ruin the game for people with 1 account example:i try to do one of the events an it takes alot of stuff or materials to do it an i have 1 account so i use all my stuff to place high in the ranks only to have some guys 2nd account thats low level win because over the course of the game they just save an save because their 2nd account doesnt get used to often so it makes it impossible to place at the top cause once you start to beat someone they use the 2nd account just so you dont win because there main account could caught up cuz they sont have enough stuff to do so which is very much unfair to anyone else whos trying to do events
DO NOT DOWNLOAD IF YOU DONT HAVE MONEY
by Cuddii* on 2020/11/12 02:13
Well hello fellow game players, I downloaded this game almost 1 year ago. Its fun, interesting, full of people but recently the game developers have made it apparent that money is more important than the players. This game is most definitely a power hungry contest. More power you have, more friends you have. Starting out power didn’t cost a lot of money, $20 here $20 there. No big thing. Now it’s THOUSANDS of dollars. You are now PHYSICALLY UNABLE to progress in the game at the pace needed to in order to survive. (Survive; you have your own army of troops, when they die, you no longer can play the game; stronger players kill your troops). I have spent close to $1,000 dollars on this game and It’s very heartbreaking to know that a majority of my fellow players that I have made close friendships with will now be unable to progress in the game and await our demise from stronger (rich) players. The developers will auto respond to this review and tell us “your voices are being heard” - “please contact us through the help message in game” but they don’t help. Our in game inventory goes missing, they don’t help, our purchases don’t get added, don’t help. It’s always automated responses. It’s really a shame what the developers have done and continue to do. This game is fun, you make a lot of friends and it is BEYOND time consuming but if you don’t have thousands of dollars to spend on it, please don’t waste your time. S104
Terrible customer service. DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY
by Fab_was_here on 2021/04/07 20:11
I have been playing this game for almost a year. It has been fun and there are a lot of good qualities to it. What has ruined it is the lack of interest to their user base. I had made a purchase and the game crashed (the game crashes A LOT) and i contacted their customer service, which is pretty much a chat bot. Waited. Waited. Waited some more and nothing so i contacted apple. They issued a refund and thats when I received a response from SoS. I was placed in probation for requesting a refund and until i pay back the refund i would not be allowed back. WHAT? Lol.. i pleaded my case but they refused to acknowledge the validity of my claim and kept repeating that refunds requests are a violation to their terms.. what a joke... especially from someone whose spent a pretty penny in this game. When i submitted my ticket with customer service i had all documents. I had receipts, proof of purchase from paypal/apple as well as screenshots that the package that i paid for was still locked.. they still refused to see the evidence and only focused on me requesting a refund from apple. As if im supposed to wait a long time to request a refund.. this is a big community with loads of servers on discord. I’ve shared my experience in all of them and this has been echoed by a lot of players. So many issues with purchases and customer care not caring about it. So users beware, they do not care about you.
Players are unheard
by Matteson's Girl on 2021/10/05 15:51
I have been playing this game for over a year. I would call myself a moderate spender. I have invested $1,000’s of dollars. I am definitely a top 20-25 player in my state. My husband also plays, and he is one of top 10 strongest players in the state. So you see, we’ve invested a lot of money and time. Our alliance is ranked 2 in our state and we’re competitive on a global scale with players reaching the top 100 global leaderboard. Now we watch as our state and alliance dies around us. Players are leaving everyday. There is no replacing them because there are no players left to replace them with. The constant large upgrades have made spenders leave because their previous $20,000 investment is no longer going to be able to compete with the player that is dropping another $20,000 into the newest upgrades. The gap between free-to-play and pay-to-play is almost laughable at this point. To top off costs and the dying state components the game is incredibly glitchy and at game day reset you know you’re not going to be able to login. The rewards for the “everyday” events like bunkers and facilities, horde, plague zones, intel, CC, and SvS are so dated and really only help low spend players that are just starting out. Help save our dying states and reinvigorate gameplay in older states and not with events that just cost us more money either. You can do better SoS.
No sure why
by Punky green 81 on 2020/11/07 06:53
Not sure why I keep logging in. No sure why I even hit the buttons, not sure why I train troops,not sure why I care. This game has no point at first you have fun you build you grow then it all stops. It then becomes a game of well I’ll log in just to see if my people have been eaten, or if my supplies have been taken in a attack, it at the point of sheer boredom. So I’m not sure why I keep logging in and clicking the buttons. The constant updates got old 20 updates ago and that is not an exaggeration. The “ challenges” are not. The game is boring and the same all the time some events have been interesting but mostly the same thing with different colors so do one event and you’ve done them all it just repeats and repeats and repeats endlessly. You can’t grow or develop anything new after about week 2 so I have no idea why I keep playing. 3-4 months and I keep hoping this update will bring something new and nope. So developers maybe add something new please, games can be repetitive but really you are bringing a whole new level to so beyond the same..I hope you actually understand what I’m saying, and I hope anyone thinking of downloading this doesn’t, and I’ll probably unload it soon it really a waste of time and space on my device. But it’s become a habit to just click but it brings me no joy and very very very very little entertainment.
Update 1.9 was terrible
by txwolf32 on 2020/09/25 21:56
This game is good for what it is. It’s a zombie survival game. I mean I spend more time fighting other survivors than zombies, but whatever. I enjoy it for the events and the fun I have with the players. Overall it could be better for reasons I state below. Each update seems to have more and more things that players are not requesting and less things we actually want. Please listen to those who are playing your game and fix the issues. We can all adapt to changes and work with new ideas, but completely overhauling something that has no problems, with no reasoning, makes no sense and only takes away from the gaming experience. Many of us have put a lot of time and money into the game, so consider that before just trashing what we love about the game and take heed to our suggestions. There have been update that came as a request of players, and that’s awesome but more often than not it’s a patch or a throw in instead of being a planned thing. A lot of players are starting to get stuck in old states that are dead, so consider opening state moves or combining states so those players can keep enjoying the game. Take the time to focus on where your money comes from instead of how you can make more of it. Thanks.
Honest Opinion
by mya1101 on 2021/11/17 12:33
Since there isn't an updated Review on this game and I know that Reviews are technically personal opinions, but hear me out. This game is somewhat fun and somewhat boring. I play it daily and there's some pros and cons. I wish the cooldown for the Settlement Buffs were less because I can't take a 20 minute without my settlement getting attack and then I'm back to square 1, trying to make "money" again. It's also very simple to get currency in this game. I've only spent money on this game once and it's only been $4.99 other than that in my opinion, you really don't have to spend money on this game like others are saying. I also think there should be a mute button for messages that are being sent by Alliance members because they can be some spammers and it gets pretty annoying from time to time. Not to mention, that after you finish beating all of the "Boss" zombies to unlock your land that's it, there's no more boss levels to complete which is kind of boring because that was the only reason why I continued to play this game. There are mini version of the boss levels on a mini map, but I preferred the bigger boss levels you had to clear to unlock land. Like I said there's pros and cons, but overall 3.5 stars, semi good game.
Don’t put money or time into a game that requires you to bind your account.
by MACD trended on 2019/11/12 03:42
The app restarted my game when I upgraded my phone. Don’t put your money or time into this game unless you can bind the account. It’s been over a week since I last logged in. Several active players sent Help and Support messages about what happened. Help and support is useless even though you send screenshots of all the transactions, chief information, coordinates, etc. I hope players are still active if I ever get my account back. Other than that I had fun playing the game. I enjoyed customizing my settlement and teaming with other players to fight the plague. If help and support were better this would be a five star game. Update: Help and Support was able to relocate my account after 26 days and I’m happy to play again. Unfortunately my base’s resources and troops were all depleted and I couldn’t start off running. My absence has impacted the alliance and many players lost interest in the game. I tried my best by purchasing several packs to rebuild my settlement and troops but I wasn’t the strong player that I used to be. I tried to motivate players to participate in events but we weren’t able to place anymore. It’s sad to see the players that I invested my time into leave the game. I tried my best.
Don’t waste your time. It’s rigged to make you spend money .
by 82k8u3 on 2021/01/11 16:45
This game has potential to be fun. But it’s an exercise in futility. You join up and get put in a state only to see level 30 players who spent hundreds and thousands of dollars bullying everyone who doesn’t spend money or is new. So you can have your settlement for a week and some other player comes along who’s been playing for a year destroys you. Even if you spent money for the first week they are to powerful and the money you spent was a waste. They even have an event called kill stage where you get points for kills. So after joining for 5 days I got attacked by one alliance a bunch of times and had no troops and they moved my settlement as it burned to the ground . So essentially starting from scratch . I got placed in a state where 90% of the alliances are foreign. And they see an American player and I am a sitting target. I join a decent size alliance and they dictate where we can build and what we can and can’t do. So much fun!! Sarcasm of course. Save your money on another game. I hope one person who spends money reads this and goes to another game instead and spends their money elsewhere. And Kings group knows this, I have spoken to other dissatisfied players who have written Kings and they don’t care. It’s stacked for spenders.
LOVING IT
by Denise Heneka on 2020/03/01 00:33
I love how the game is baste on zombies I love zombies games so much it’s something that is interesting to me and I also love how the game is based on zombies because when I was little about three or four are used to watch The Walking Dead all the time my mom just let me watch it constant I really like zombies and gory movies so for me to download this game is a real treat for me. That is why I downloaded the game state of survival and this is also why I rated this a four star review it is probably one of the best games I’ve ever downloaded in my downloading history I am very happy to have a state of survival game it is also like I said a very awesome treat for me so thank you for Creating this amazing zombies game so for whoever made this game you are the best person living yes of coarse a lot of people are the best at living I guess but this is just the best game I’ve had so thank you so much for putting this game in the game store I really appreciate this and I’m going to play it over and over again all my life this is why I picked a four star rating yet because it has its ups and downs but I really think that this game has some talent and I think that I’m going to play all my life so thank you and goodbye.
LONG TIME PLAYERS LEAVING IN DISGUST.
by Nanna's angle on 2021/12/05 01:49
I have been playing this game for approximately two years. It was fun to start with new and exciting but has turned into a money pit. If you do not spend money you get nowhere in this game and that is exactly what they want you do to. There are players who have been playing this game since the beginning who are leaving because they are disgusted with the poor customer service, updates that are never right, events where they steal your items from you and do not even tell you in the rules for the event that this is going to happen. You get kicked out of the game all the time. Terrible lag, game freezing and cannot get it to undo without going out and coming back in the game. I am very frustrated that they do this to their customers who play this game and get away with it. Long time players we are talking about just quitting because they are so disgusted with Kings Group. So beware of this game but if you enjoy being lied to, items stolen, getting kicked out of the game, lagging game so bad it just sits there and spins and then they have the never to tell you it is your connection. Well it never happened before until the upgrade they do. They do the upgrades and never fix the problems. So please find another game to play besides a Kings Group game and save yourself a ton of headaches.
Good Game, but don’t spend money here
by DC/MD lawyer mommy on 2021/05/13 14:49
The game is fun. But you need to be very careful about where you settle down and where you choose to build your headquarters. Before you build, or invest ANY money, try to get a sense of the alliances there. Once you are there for a few days, you cannot take your HQ and move to another state, so you have to abandon it and start over. And spend more money. Many states are full of bullies, who destroy weaker alliances for no reason and force them to abandon what they have built. The game does not prevent the strongest players (5 star/level 35) from attacking anyone, no matter the difference in power. It does not limit the number of attacks or cap resources that can be stolen. People are openly bullied and harassed in the state chat by these groups. That is a BIG problem in this game. The developers do not respond or assist, even when presented with picture evidence of the bullying, copies of attack logs and other evidence. Probably because they already got the money from the players and don’t care. This game could be so much better and enjoyable for everyone, with a few small changes, and if the developers cared to stop the terrible behavior. But, so far they have not, and some states, like 493, have turned into dumpster fires.
False Advertising Up The Wazoo
by cbf sad h on 2021/04/10 19:14
Just wanna say real quick I didn’t have a problem with this game player wise before seeing all these ads, now I feel like I’ve gotta say something. The game is literally every kingdom building game ever. Tapping and waiting and paying to not wait as long, like we’ve all played and complained about before. I actually don’t have too much of a problem with this game aside from what I’ve just listed because I went into this gaming KNOWING what I was getting into and knowing that if I wanted to get ahead and upgrade stuff without waiting months on end I was gonna have to pay outta pocket. I’ve had this game for a few months and play it when I’m bored, it’s good for wasting time and if I care to pay attention to the 19,000 different story lines going on in the game then that too also passes the time for me. But I’m writing this one star review because what I cannot stand is seeing all the false advertising for this game on other apps and ads. It’s ridiculous and it’s pathetic you dupe people into downloading your app because they think if they play long enough and get through the half hour hand holding tutorial that they’ll finally get the kind of action they saw in your advertisements that made them download in the first place, when in reality they won’t. Shame on y’all.
Not bad, surprisingly fun and addictive
by Right side only on 2021/02/09 18:48
I just downloaded this game yesterday. I have spent money on it, because I’m impatient and from prior experiences playing games like this. If you don’t pay for some of the “perks”(extra resources, speed up etc.); you will be a target for the really big spenders. They will zero you out and lose interest in the game. You can’t play on your own, you will need to join an alliance to make it easier to get resources and reduce the amount of time building and researching. It seems like the devs are listening to the players, on current event, they lowered the requirement to obtain prizes. The game is simple and isn’t too hard to figure out. One of the things I think that needs improvement is the requirements to get a peace shield. You have to use “bio-caps”, which are hard to get. If you get bio-caps, it’s takes a lot of them to get a 24 peace shield. Quick search on the internet, I found you can enter codes to get bio-caps and others things to get you going, that is a nice surprise. Overall it’s not that bad of a game. The packs are inexpensive, but they increase in price when you purchase one. So be careful and select wisely.
Better than Most!
by FreshieeFresh on 2019/11/09 17:37
I’ve played this game fore only 3 days but I can tell that this is a different experience than what I’m used to. I’m this game there are so many different gameplay mechanics that you may forget. Not only can you attack other players bases, but there is a single player mode, and side quests. The single player missions are similar in terms of gameplay and the story may be not that fleshed out, but it’s still highly enjoyable. However this is a free to play game, so how are the micro transactions handled? Unfortunately every time you load up the game they will shove a micro transaction opportunity done your throat. They also put micro transaction logos over key buildings in the game in the hope that players will click on them. I have done this several times and it’s an annoyance in my opinion. I understand why they do this, but I still don’t agree with it. However the positive to all of this? You DO NOT need to buy these transactions to progress at an acceptable pace. There are plenty of ways to speed up building construction and scientific research. Overall I think if you like zombie games, base builder, and simply want something to pass the time download this game and try it out.
State of Broken Tutorial
by Tae98Lily on 2020/10/19 00:43
The entire game feels like a tutorial where a hand cursor shows you where to tap to progress the story. Exploration missions are boring and are fully automated. They present no challenge whatsoever. The infected in the wilderness map are all such pushovers except for rallies. After you get through the prologue, the game becomes frustrating yet still a cakewalk because you have to spend biocaps or wait for HQ to upgrade just to continue the tutorial (I mean story) and the hand cursor directs you to buy biocaps when you should already have enough. As a result, new players might think they have to pay for biocaps when they have thousands in their inventory that they have to claim manually. Shortly after starting Chapter 2, the game started to lag even in text boxes for the story to the point that it took more than a second for each word to pop up on the screen. I doubt that is an issue with network latency because the story is probably locally cached. Also, there are no voiceovers after Chapter 1 is through with. The hand cursor still does not go away and is trying to force me to upgrade my heroes when they are upgraded as far as possible now and the game will no longer respond to swiping the touch screen to move around the home base. That is when I deleted this app.
You will spend all of your money
by TJSINP on 2020/12/26 09:59
This game is fun with many ways to strategize for optimal play. However, the constant barrage of advertisements for $4.99 here and $4.99 there to enhance your experience are designed for players to accept without thinking. For those with problems of self control, especially during a pandemic when you’re trying to find an escape from the real world, you will easily spend thousands of dollars without realizing it. In order to be a top player in this game and compete for top prizes, you will have to spend $10,000+ and deal with sexual harassment, hate, bigotry, xenophobia, and a multitude of other undesirable characteristics of top players. I have created accounts in at least 7 different states in this game and there is only one state that has some semblance of organization. It can be fun, but it can also be financially devastating and gut wrenching for people looking for a simple escape during a global crisis. Along with that, there are updates all of the time that include major game lag and missed opportunities to participate in events due to these constant upgrades. I’m sure there is a better game out there where you can have just as much fun, meet people from all over the world, and spend a fraction of the money. Go see for yourself but heed the warning.
Wonderful progression in states
by Aftremn on 2020/11/06 14:23
This game is wonderful. The world is broken down into states. Each state is independent and the game promotes cooperation within that state. If you join a newly created state, the zombies that appear on the map are less powerful and the “high level” areas of the map are locked down. As the state grows over time, higher levels of zombies unlock and eventually your state unlocks the ability to have a player to be the governor of the state and grant state wide buffs using currency earned by everyone in that state and eventually battle against other states. I’m not sure if it is due to state specific player enforced rules, but players in my state do not zero out bases or pick on low level bases as I have experienced on other war style games. It is possible to be competitive by investing time into the game without paying but as in most games, I suspect the top 10 teams are made up mostly of people who spend money every week. There are a good number of events that rotate and some that appear as your state progresses.
Broken/glitchy app - No support
by Nachtbringer on 2021/08/10 02:47
This game is super glitchy and crashes constantly. I’ll get locked out of the game for hours and have entire events or tasks I miss because of constant glitches and crashing. Events are basically “pay to win/pay to play” and so is pretty much every other part of the game. This would be fine except that I will spend the money, and it could be a few hundred dollars, on events, only for it to crash every time I try to load it and prevent me from playing much if any of said event. As the issues have been getting steadily worse over the last few months, as much as I loved and enjoyed the game, I am ready to call it quits. I want the money I’ve put into the game back because it’s literally unplayable. Of course the developers and apple support are both completely unhelpful telling me I should try and dispute the charges with my bank instead of trying to get help from them. I’ve never considered getting a Samsung before now. Moral of the story, don’t get this game. With as expensive as it is to play, it shouldn’t be broken to the point that it is often unplayable, and don’t expect help from the developers or apple when it doesn’t work. They knew they were selling a faulty product and so they won’t do anything about it to help.
Nice game BUT..
by Sid 😡😡 on 2020/10/04 23:27
As other reviews have already pointed out that game is pretty nice and addictive but once you get past level 10 it’s too hard to upgrade buildings and heroes, get some legendary heroes and train troops without purchasing bundles. Not only that the bundles only keep getting more and more expensive. The event rewards have also become limited and hard to get basically purchase more bundles to complete events to get those “free rewards” However, the most annoying thing of all this their ‘help and support’. I purchased a bundle but the transaction failed. I was charged for the purchase anyway so I reached out for assistance but got no response (aside from them asking for receipt which I provided). You would think that the game that you spend so much money on would have a good customer service but oh well! The only reason I still am on the game is because my alliance is awesome but don’t know how long I can keep up with their poor service. Oh did I forget to mention the horrible glitches 😊 every update basically releases a new glitch :) the app freezes/ crashes, rewards go missing (again no help from ‘help and support’), lags a lot!! I wish they would focus a little on the reviews and suggestions
Fun
by britxannx on 2021/01/01 17:06
Great time pass or buffer for another wait time game. Mini missions killing zombies and alliances. What’s not to loveeeeeee. People you rescue will teach you things as well as your alliance. There’s an open world chat with a translator as well. For most part people are chill can be mean to noobs and you can get your occasional creep. But just don’t chat or report the player. Most part those like I said people are chill. Been playing for a few days still trying to figure out everything. They offer a lot and don’t have to pay to play. Graphics are cool and load times aren’t a major. Can be fun solo and with friends/family. I do recommend this game based on the missions and not pay to play. There is daily rewards and things to keep busy as you wait for your base and troops to upgrade or train. Fun fun fun thanks these are my personal opinions and I did get a reward for this review. It’s nothing crazy just a simple thanks in game play. You can play at your own pace and not rush through things.
Well it’s been over a year…

I didn’t write a review at first because I’ve played plenty of games like this. Though this one has more conversations with its players and developers via discord, there’s many things ignored. As players, we’ve given what we want or need constantly and yet every update has things we never asked for or wanted. You manage your settlement, your heroes, your chief. The best part of the game, is finding an alliance you connect well with. I’ve made some of the best friends and family, and they are the only reason I haven’t stopped playing. Our state is dying and quickly. Our big spenders are quitting, our F2P can’t keep up because the rewards don’t update. A merge of servers is desperately needed and though we’re being told it’s happening, it keeps getting pushed. Many maxed players have an overstock of items in their backpacks that are now useless, but they keep getting them as rewards. Getting frags for heroes is either pay or fall behind. It’s definitely a player beware. Unless you are a social person, you will quit quickly. The friends are the only thing that makes this “chore” worth it.
Great Game, Horrible Customer Service
by sunwhisper on 2020/09/28 20:13
This is a great game to play, a little glitchy at times but things you can live with. If you are new to the game, start at a new state. If you go into an existing state it will be difficult unless you are spending money. Even in a new state, you have to spend money to level up and keep up with other players or you will get burned. Customer service is pretty bad. I have had issues buying packs and not getting items, this happens more than you would like it to. And a familiar story among Alliance members and they don’t take banking transaction details as proof which is crazy. They want screenshots of the game etc when you don’t take as you never assume your purchase is going to fail. Also when you log tickets for things going missing in your backpack or using items that are taken away from inventory yet the buff does not work is troublesome as it is impossible to get CS to give you back any items. I have had to wait days for CS to respond and at the end of going backwards and forwards for a week, they say “No issue found” and you just lose anything that went missing.
Created to take your money
by Artistic Advertising on 2020/08/17 19:03
Although this game is enjoyable at first, it was only created to take your money. It has many features and is very intricate, but at a point you can only advance if you buy some sort of game feature like a hero bundle, or badges, etc. You cannot get to the level of your enemies unless you spend $4.99 here or $1.99 there. I got to level 7 for free but in order to get to level 8 I would have to spend $4.99 for a feature to get over an obstacle. What would I get for real cash from my Apple wallet? Some stupid virtual advancement that vaporizes as soon as I delete the game off my phone, only to find another obstacle requiring another $4.99. The game developers are geniuses for devising this game scheme, however. “Create a game where users will get addicted and be ‘forced’ to buy character features in order to ‘win’!” Which never happens because there are too many other networked players with more ability than you who have probably spent $1000 on game features. What a waste! Don’t get addicted to this game-you will have nothing to show for it in the real world after your piggy bank or Apple wallet is empty. Instead, spend your money on an online business course where you can make money for your family.
Awful support
by Blake.D on 2022/01/01 19:44
I normally don’t review but this game has really chapped me. It’s a great game, I have spent hundreds of days and more in money on this game and play it daily still. I have no issues with the game itself but rather the company. This game like every other game now days has micro transactions, I purchased them for months now with no issues. Last week however I spent my $50 for a few packages of gear parts and did not receive them. I contacted support and was told it can take up to 24 hours. They said if I had not heard back by then to contact them again. I waited and waited and didn’t get anything in game so I reached out again and was left with silence. I then let them know I would be requesting a refund and I reached out to Apple who issued the refund within a day. I was then contacted 2 days later by support letting me know that any future packages I purchased would be held until I had spent the $50 with them again. They are stealing from the player base and Apple allows it to happen. Once again the game is great but read online before you spend money I am not alone in this their are plenty of people in the same position as me. I will not be spending any more money with them and the account is now in my eyes useless.
Ineptitude and greed, a pathetic combination
by Man4allrsn on 2021/03/08 17:24
First, the game is fun. Let’s get that out of the way. Having said that, let me state categorically that to really get anywhere in this game you better have a serious amount of money to blow on crap. Everything costs, and they nickel and dime you to death. I spent several hundred dollars in a matter of a couple months. In light of that, let me add that their support is non-existent most of the time and completely incompetent for the remainder. I had an issue over the disappearance from my storage of a few items purchased. I acknowledged that they had been there, but somehow vaporized from my inventory. In dealing with this i was passed off to multiple people, having to re-explain every time. The general tactic was to wear me down until i gave up. When that failed, Their response was: you got the items, have a nice day. They never actually understood the problem, or they pretended they didn’t. In the end, i’m not certain if i’m more offended by their incompetence in solving a problem over $7.98, or their stupidity in sacrificing hundreds of dollars in future revenue from me over such a piddly amount. Whatever. I no longer care, but i will NEVER give these people another dime, and you shouldn’t either.
DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME! BREEDING GROUND FOR BULLIES!
by LointerLeo on 2020/07/08 22:30
DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME! REPEAT: DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME! THIS IS BREEDING GROUND FOR BULLIES! YOUR MONEY WILL GO WASTED! The game lures you in with humans have to be cooperative during a zombie apocalypse and they did a beautiful job at that. In the early stages of the game, you would be building up your home, your troops, gathering resources and killing zombies. After a certain point, ugly head started to rear up. Stronger players, either started playing before or serious players who spent lots of money, started going around bullying people. They would send their troops around razing your home and your hard-earned money. Since they keep attacking you and killing your new troops, raiding your resources while building their own, you have almost no chance of fighting back. And mods do not intervene at all! Other games would have a system to prevent things like this from happening but these developers make no efforts at it. The whole state turned into bullies' hunting ground and the money you spent early in the game is wasted. AGAIN! DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME! *** P.S: I am not taking this down unless devs start cracking down on bullying in this game. Either ban them outright or move them to a more developed state where they can fight people their own weight, but DO SOMETHING!
Survival
by weenis elbow on 2021/11/04 13:13
It seems others are having a similar experience that I have also encountered. Love the game and nearly everything about it. It’s the only game I play. However, customer service isn’t a service. It’s seems more of trained responses to somehow blame you for an issue that we have no control over. I initiated 4+ tickets and was dismissed each time, having to come up with more proof, screenshots, and narrative. I tried explaining what happened each time, even stating that I don’t want a refund or exchange (I just wanted the item I purchased), but the gist of all replies “it is impossible” (their own words). After receiving the same message despite evidence I simply wanted to be understood which I have now given up on. I’ll still play the game, but will not interact with no “help & support” for as long as humanly possible. I would give this game more than 5 stars if I could otherwise. Hopefully this review doesn’t impact my gameplay, but had to share my experience as it appears I am not alone. Keep on surviving everyone! Please don’t send some automatic developer response saying y’all are fixing the issue. I suggest simply making it what it is - a service.
Way more fun than I expected
by <3siena<3 on 2021/01/07 06:55
From the ad I saw, I just thought it was going to be a sort of tower defense style game. It is in some aspects, but there’s really a lot going on in this game. There’s plot and storyline, interesting characters, and a large variety of tasks. There’s also worldbuilding, alliances, and of course there’s the combat which is fun as well. While there are a lot of of elements the game makes it easy to figure out what’s going on by making innovative tasks and goals. There’s also an interesting function where townspeople ask you little trivia questions about gameplay which help make sure you understand what’s going on (if you get them right you get a reward!). I thought I would just download as a way to pass the time but it’s honestly very great. Also while I haven’t had the game long, I haven’t felt like the game is “pay to play” as many games like this are. Now as I continue maybe that will change, but for now I am greatly enjoying it.
Don’t do it
by JFHeff on 2021/04/15 08:01
The gameplay itself isn’t bad, although it does seem to keep getting more bugs or half developing things and rolling out a “beta” version of something new and just eventually abandoning altogether without warning or real updates which is kind of frustrating. But that isn’t really the big issue, the problem I had was the customer service, it was laughable when you did contact them about bugs and glitches. I once tried for over a week to tell them about a problem I had SPENDING more! As in the game glitched and wouldn’t let me, and they handled it with the most broken communication and cryptic messages over a week plus of random back and forth, seriously it was so frustrating at first it infuriated me but went on in such comical fashion resulting in total absurdity I just had to laugh at it all by the end. In summary, the game is of average interest to play, it is very limited unless you want to spend a lot, and be prepared that even if you are ok with that and accept it, it might not always let you and the customer service to problem solve towards any real solution is not going to be there. Lots of options out there, I recommend swiping left on this one.
Double Charges, Support threatens and robs
by FS0SYALLGR33DYAF on 2021/03/08 02:54
This game is 100% pay to play. Be prepared for that before you download. Don’t download if you run iOS Beta programs, or honestly even if you have iOS (they gave Hawai players extra time after some events end so you spend $$ to win and surprise you don’t). Not only that, they are double charging you regularly. Me and several of my alliance members noticed this. They contest refund with Apple, then after you contest they give in but send you a nasty message saying you won’t get future purchases of the same dollar amount (essentially saying they’ll take your $$ til they get back what Apple refunded). Their customer support takes AGES to get back to you, and is incompetent to say the least. They said, and I quote: if frequent refunding is detected, swift and decisive action will be taken. Like what? You gonna sue me for you double charging and me requesting a refund? Screw these greedy developers. Oh btw, they charge tax on all in app purchases so that 4.99 comes to 5.29. I dropped $200 in a couple weeks and they still take forever to reply. F these developers Fr. If you read this good luck man and I hope you are ready to hand over your wallet. I only stay for my alliance fam 😅
Unprofessional Rude Greedy
by WarriorOperator on 2020/03/10 03:00
The two stars are because I like the game, but your customer support is ridiculous and condescending. I have NEVER had to leave a bad review ever, but this treatment will not go unspoken, the fact that I’ve spent my hard earned money to enjoy a game is fine, but the simple fact is when I don’t get my money’s worth is outright thievery. I’ve tried to contact you through in game support and on Instagram and of course I got no reply except when I told you that I would go through apple to resolve the issue your response was &#34; glad you can get the issue resolved &#34;. That’s disgusting to say the least, I’ve noticed from other reviews that you enjoy giving your customers the run around and unfulfilled support, I am appalled that you have the nerve to not either reimburse me or compensate me for my time and money. I promise you and I don’t break promises, I will happily and vigorously let everyone know on every social platform of your blatant disregard for paying customers and your complete and utter lack of responsibility via Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Discord and reddit forums. There was albino sense in treating me or any other customer in this fashion.
Overall Experience
by jpal2000201 on 2021/10/10 15:27
Here is how i rated. I start with 5 stars. One star was deducted for not having good clarity of game play. I highly recommend a short video of the main beginners topics (informing that there are alliances out there to join, how to communicate with other members, what not to do as a beginner like attack. Lol). The subtopics like building, research, etc. you do very well in guiding. You teach really good on how to press and what to press. I realized this was my second time playing (trying it out) after a large period of time in between. The first time as I was building I did the dumb mistake of attacking a base. Lol. They demolished everything I worked for. So I stopped. I was not in an alliance because I was still trying to figure things out. Makes me wonder how many other people are in the same predicament, which is why I dropped another star. Loosing player interest quickly due to lack of knowledge. On another note, how awesome would it be to be able to interact with this through VR? Is it possible to somehow create something where you could play either through mobile or VR?
Fun game!
by Firebird805 on 2020/08/22 21:45
This is a pretty fun game to play and spend a little time on. I definitely prefer this game over to most others in the category. Games like Evony and Fire Age are not as good as State of Survival. The only game similar that I think still trumps it is Clash of Clans. However they are very different games so maybe not a fair comparison. This game is relaxing and simple. It’s pretty easy to progress through the game as well. However, the couple reasons that I gave this a 4 star instead of 5 are: 1. There seem to be a couple bugs for me. The one that stands out the most is the alliance donations. They don’t ever seem to work properly. It either says that I can’t donate or they will reset in 10:00 with a countdown timer that just restarts over and over again. 2. I believe the game could do a bit better at explaining some of the minor things or what specific buildings do. It does a good job of explaining the main parts of the game but there are some alliance features that I don’t understand as well as some of the buildings purposes.
Bullied by High Level Player
by Shylioness on 2021/07/16 20:49
I really enjoyed this game and didn’t mind grinding and paying for supplies. It’s taken me awhile to realize that one high level player has been attacking my lower level settlement over and over again. Last night I just realized that the rewards of all the grinding I’ve been doing for over a month were in the messages, reports, so I happily collected them all. I felt dumb for not knowing they were there all along, but was thrilled that I could grow. Along the way I’ve also made several in app purchases for supplies. Well, color me SHOCKED when I signed in today to see that almost ALL OF MY RESOURCES WERE GONE! I looked in the battle log to see what happened and that’s when I saw it, a high level player name AHA, has been attacking my settlement consistently. I just never notice much was missing because I never had much. So I grind and spend real $$ on this game only do a big time player can come take it all. And then…oh this is rich…and then this game offers to let me buy a booster package, or whatever they call it to help replenish my lost goods!!! AM I BEING PUNKED?? Well, no more. Don’t waste your time or money with this app. It should be named “State of a Rip Off”!

Terrible customer service
by Firemedic director on 2022/01/19 15:58
I purchased stuff for an event I didn’t receive was told by support it would be sent shortly it wasn’t event ended and finished 11th. Outside of prize. Then it’s been three weeks of the same run around asking for screen shots proof and when sent close ticket there are tons of these on message boards be careful and the review about cheaper packages isn’t true. Which wouldn’t be an issue but customer service non existing and when you ask for a refund for there error apple has no problem with it but they threaten to lock and delete your account. Played many games like this over the years. Yet customer service has to be one dog the worst I experienced. Be aware with this game. state 878

A lot like survival and puzzles. There is a pay to win as in most every game. Starting out seems fine so far though.

Easy to follow, low priced packages
by Yesdnyl99 on 2020/07/28 05:00
I’ve played a couple of games like this one. Upgrade, train, defeat, support your alliance by trading and lowering their time to upgrade, attack other alliances. One in particular I played was difficult to follow at first. They gave a quick tutorial and set you free then never helped you understand how certain upgrade points applied to other parts of the game in order to increase defense and overall strength and knights. You needed communication with your alliance to get help. If you also did not buy enough packages ($5-100), you were going to lose to other alliances who were constantly attacking. This one however encourages you to grow your food and defeat zombies to get better. The packages are $4.99 which makes it easier. Also, when you don’t have enough resources to build or defeat, the game shows you how to get them with a cursor showing you what to tap to help you out. It completely guides you even when you’ve been playing for a while. Still very helpful. There’s a lot of hidden areas to tap to grab the resources you’ve worked for. There’s events to work towards too. There’s also skins for your headquarters which gives you abilities and looks fun, theres options to change your hero, you can change your profile photo to your own or a character’s, you can also arrange your base and make it look however you want.
Game dictate your life.
by lackofcoin on 2021/12/30 14:12
If you’re looking for a game that will pretty much take over your whole life you have found the right one. If you’re trying to enjoy a holiday with your family, know that this game will plan an event to interfere. If you choose your family over your game, you may come back to your village being zeroed. Such as what happened to me. You spent a lot of money and time building things up, and really don’t know the rules or how to get certain things even after six months of playing, this game still leaves a mystery. You find you’re doing things wrong which cost you a lot of time and then find others that know what they’re doing but won’t share that information with you even though they’re on the same team as you. They will take you and lead you into battles and won’t explain things to you and then they end up getting you in trouble because you don’t know what you’re doing. Some of your leaders will badmouth other teams which will cause the other teams to come after everybody in the group, not just the one that’s doing the bad mouthing so pick your alliance wisely. Streamers are there to take even more money from you. After awhile the game gets repetitive and you need to set an alarm for them. Make sure you are playing the time zone as most of your alliance or you will be left out of many good events. Plan to rack up $1000 on your credit card yearly. I did and I am frugal. After investing so much, hard to stop playing.
Fair and unique
by birbitto on 2021/09/26 00:39
I went in to SoS with indifferent and honestly low expectations. The ads I’ve seen don’t do it justice though I know it’s a hard genre to advertise. I really like the multiple things you can do instead of just managing your settlement. I think the little exploration tasks and survival challenges really add flavor to it and are pretty fun. The in game transactions are honestly fair priced and you still get a lot of biocaps for completing missions so unless you have something specific in mind you might not even need to buy to progress. I like the multiple chiefs and their different combat abilities too. I think the events are pretty neat. The dailys are really beneficial too. If I had any criticism it’d be that it might be nice to have troops linger in the battlefield instead of completely returning. It can be a little cumbersome to have two intel missions right next to each other, 80km out, and have to wait 3 minutes for them to come back to send them out again. Though it’s entirely possible I’ve missed something. All in all, I’m having fun with it. Being in an alliance actually feels helpful for timers and such when in other games I’ve barely noticed their assistance. For reference for where I’m at in the game — I’m upgrading my HQ to 18 and I’ve been playing religiously for a week.
Needs some additional help
by Porkchop420 on 2020/09/20 08:33
Okay so the game is basically pretty cool but it has some draw backs first of all u less you spend money it’s hard to collect all the players cause you have to collect pieces of them and if you get them you rarely get them again to level up but you’ll get the same 2 characters till there generals and the dam game goes into over drive and when you do the searches like your supposed to now all of a sudden the game wants to give you 5 of that character now and you cannot even use them any more why not rotate the players you do need why does it give you the same 2 people and you can’t use those pieces anymore. Also when your in a clan you cannot share your resources with you guild mates on all other games you can share supplies within your guild and they tax you for it which is very helpful cause if your attacked and all of your supplies are taken and they have killed all your troops it will take you a week just to get back to what you had because it takes for ever to collect the resources back to get your troops back if you could share withi. Your guild you could put a tax on the resources that you share so like if you shared a million food or wood the tax could be high to begin with but if you leveled up say a trading station your taxes of resoreces could be reduced but never less than say 10% I just wish it would be more team friendly that away. Other then that it’s an okay game
Horrible Support
by jpack on 2021/03/13 14:49
The game is similar to others out there. Build a settlement, attack zombies and compete with others for rewards. Warning, it is an expensive game. I’m fine with that, my issue is that their support is horrible. If you have any issue, it’s your fault. The game is riddled with bugs that lead to missing rewards (both free, and ones YOU PAID FOR), also some of the benefits (called buffs) you purchase won’t always work. Again, if you contact support, they will immediately say it’s your fault and close the support ticket. I found too many bugs that took things away from me that I paid for, so I stopped putting any money in. I also reported a few mystery charges I did not initiate, again it’s your fault, not theirs. I suggest you play it for free, and resist the urge to spend, because the developers will just find a way to steal from you. Or better yet, just move on to try one of the many other games that are exactly like this. Maybe those developers treat their customers better. *** Response to developer: More time? Each time I submitted an issue you were quick to close the ticket without asking any follow up questions. I had to submit the same ticket three times for the same bug. Each time having to re-explain the issue to every new agent who responded. You were not interested in fixing the issue, you just wanted to blow off your customer who spent A LOT of money. So, I’m done spending money. I’ll play for free with that kind of support. ***
Love it! BUT...
by Pppllllooolllooo on 2020/07/09 13:05
I love this game highly addicted and happy to have spent money on it. There hasn’t been a game I’ve actually enjoyed this much until this game. BUT, I have recently hit a brick wall, I’m a clan leader but the alliance has hit a brick wall with the alliance towers and research because there are no Gas Alliance Nodes along the outskirts meaning you have to move closer towards the middle to get Gas alliance nodes, unfortunately it also makes it harder to move because clans already Staken claim to areas within the map making it harder for smaller clans to grow and build along side of them. Honestly there should be more Gas alliance nodes all over the map especially on the outskirts of the map so it’s fair for all alliances. Also there should also be a way to @ people in chat whether it’s one person or the clan as a whole. Lastly I feel like clan leaders should have more reign during alliance events for example Alliance Showdown, give the clan leader the chance to move people to different lanes. Honestly, I want to give this game 5 stars hands down, but there are just things that limit growth in the game whether it’s individual or as a clan. But I still love the game I just wish things could be added to the game ie; Gas Alliance Nodes around the outskirts, since there are already farm, wood, and metal Nodes. It forces smaller clans to have to move where there is no space cause stronger clans already taken up space in the central parts of the map.
Fun and Addictive! LOTS to do!
by BrindleStudio on 2020/07/23 17:47
I have been playing a week or so; it is a fun addictive game with tons to do. Pokes to spend real money on the game are pretty reasonably not in your face but easily found if you want to go that route. I did spend about $15 on a top-up special and it gave me a big start as far as being able to speed up training and upgrading of my buildings. Worth it to me. Heck, I’d easily spend that on lunch and now that we’re in the COVID-19 era, I’m not going out to lunch as often as I used to so might as well still have some fun! I joined an alliance that is casual but active, which is nice! I love the events and the way that missions and other tasks are kinda staggered so you can play for pretty long periods of time. I wish that I could queue up research when individual research tasks are less than 10 minutes, maybe up to a limit of three tasks. Not a fan of shooty stuff where I have to control individual heroes so I’m really glad I can set the shooty challenges on auto and 3x speed...it is amusing to watch the zombies shamble into bullets and die in that mode. Nicely designed, visually attractive game. I will play for a long time, for sure. I wish there was more stuff to decorate my settlement with! Maybe I will discover there are as I progress.
Average free game with good graphics
by deano19892012 on 2020/09/17 07:16
Overall SoS is a good enough game for being free. The graphics are good and there’s plenty of content to do for being a free game. That being said, the developers make it clear they want you to spend money by constantly putting different ‘packs’ everywhere on your screen that can be purchased. One example is that every time you load the game there’s a pack that is offered for 4.99 (right now it’s the Survival of the Fittest pack). You can also pay to have a second construction slot to upgrade buildings, which is reasonable for the price. What isn’t reasonable is that every time you create a new character, you have to purchase the second construction slot again. This was very misleading because I purchased it on my first character thinking it was a one-time only purchase because it literally says that in the game! The game can be played without ever having to pay money, but just know that you won’t ever be as powerful as the people who pay for power(yes this game is pay-to-win). I’ve been playing this game for over 10 months now and I do enjoy it, although sometimes I do get annoyed at how much the game tries to advertise different things that can be purchased. If you are looking for a new game to play that is free I would recommend trying out SoS, but just note that it’s pay-to-win and you’re going to get bombarded with ‘deals’ and offers in the game.
Good game with the same old story
by Jozzut on 2020/12/24 20:59
The game is fun and the graphics are very well done. But as is the norm for this type of game it’s fun for a few days then you need to shell out $$$ to get things done without waiting hours for upgrades on buildings or troops to finish. This game has good game play and lots of missions to keep you busy but once again it’s a game where the biggest players destroy the smaller players constantly so what’s the sense of playing. I don’t mind being attacked and losing a battle and resources but there no way to continue to grow when you are attacked and destroyed several times a day. Put a limit on how much a player can lose before a free and I mean free shield pops up to save loss of resources based on player level. I liked this game and even in an alliance you get destroyed. It’s a shame I don’t mind spending here and there to play but the cost of a shield is way too expensive. Just another good game that’s going to lose out on the volume of player to please the few big spenders. Such a shame this was a well designed game. It’s almost a great game. But who wants to grind and have nothing to show for it when your not on and have to start over. If you lose a battle pvp you might as well quit moving your base and a shield (peace flare) will break you wallet. I understand the game needs to make money but 100 small spenders will spend more than 1 big spender food for thought.
Addictive
by michaelspringfield on 2020/06/23 12:05
Addictive game. The first few levels are great but as you advance upgrades to your buildings take longer and longer until upgrades take hours to complete. To make matters worse you hit a wall on what you can do without upgrading. You cannot queue up your upgrades so the next one starts when the one you are working on finishes. That would be a great feature to help with advancing gameplay while you are off doing real life things like working, going to school or sleeping. You cannot add a second construction slot to work on other things unless you pay real money. The same goes for training troops. At higher levels it takes hours. Upgrading your hero hits a wall. The really good upgrades, you guessed it, costs real money. Exploring the world? You can send out tow groups to gather resources, which once again, takes hours on higher levels. You cannot get more groups to send out unless, you guessed it again, pay real money. Researching new technologies. You hit the upgrade wall and you can’t research more than one thing at a time unless, you guessed it, pay real money. Do you see a pattern emerging? After a certain point this becomes a wait forever for something to happen or pay to play. I am almost a week into it and have already hit the pay to play wall. I don’t see it staying on my iPad more than another week unless something changes.

by Egg Cuteness ^.^ on 2019/12/17 19:46
I got this game about a week ago, so far I’m liking it. I did go ahead and purchase the Extra Labor Pack, my card got charged but I did not get the pack.. i had to “update” my payment so it directed me to the App Store and I put okay and the payment went through then when I went back the the game it said “payment failed”. So I was like okay whatever, I was pretty hesitant to buy it in the first place so I didn’t mind that it didn’t go through, he next day I check my purchase history in the App Store and I had a payment pending for The State Of Survival.... I go and check my bank app AND of course the payment is pending. So I tried disputing it with apple first and all they said was to contact the game support. So I went to see if I can find a number or something AND nothing. So I have to now dispute it with my bank and it is very annoying that the payment went through but I didn’t get the pack... which I really want because it has that extra slot to build two things at once, which would be fantastic. Now I’m just going to wait for my money to get back into my account and hopefully the pack is still there so I can purchase the thing and actually get what I’m paying for lol. Small rant but good game just be cautious if you’re purchasing anything in the app.
Different from the others
by Barchenowa on 2020/06/11 18:10
I began playing this game out of boredom with no expectations or desire to continue to play past the first day. This was not the case however. As soon as I went through the standard learning curve that all mobile RPG/Strategy base building games have, I knew it was a game I can see myself playing and investing time into. This game has a lot of the elements that other successful and popular games of the same genre has, but it is unique enough to keep you interested because it has added features and mechanics to the game that I personally haven’t seen in others. This game doesn’t feel like a “copy and paste” clone of other well known games that many many others on the app stores have become. The best part about this game in my opinion, is that I do not feel as if it a straight up cash grab game that pressures you into feeling like the only way you will succeed is if you spend a lot of money; if I spend any money, it will be because I want to not because I feel as if I have to. You can enjoy and actually compete within the game without ever spending any money. Overall, it’s a well made game that’s unique enough for veteran mobile game players to at least try out!
Great game but
by KAS1K5SPIRIT on 2021/02/09 13:01
I love the game but if the creators are reading the reviews please listen to this one I would like more customization in the construction area of decorations because I want to customize my HQ more like for example add something like cut down logs to sit on for like a camp fire set up like I can put a mini bonfire then put logs around it and have a little camp set up and other customization things around the game like customizing your own character you can unlock things like shirts shoes socks pants accessories like jewelry sunglasses or glasses and you don’t have to go that far into it but add things like eyecolor and facial hair and expressions. Please! Let us have a 360 view so we can move around our view so we can see more to the HQ and other things in the game and also let us rotate things that we were allowed to rotate before like our warehouse or farm or lumberyard in those rotate those all the stuff so we can customize it more to this will be a big update but please do it if other people are reading this please like it so they can do this you don’t have to but if you agree you can. 😀👍😍👌 great job on the game Kings group loving it so far just more customization please
Could be a great game... bullying ruins it!
by RenaHen1969 on 2021/11/04 04:19
It’s supposedly free to play but unless you put in a lot of money, unless you have a endless supply of cash or your mommy and daddy‘s credit card you aren’t going to get anywhere but crushed. And the developers don’t care, or that’s the feeling that is received by everyone. There’s different levels that your base can be at and different stars your base can have. I’ve watched repeatedly as alliances that have eight star bases attack little alliances and crush level 28, level 25, heck I’ve even seen a level 20 go down under a 8 star base, because they don’t have the cash to put into it. There’s nothing to stop much much higher levels from killing states. Those are called dead states, and there’s a lot of that going on. There is nothing put into place to stop the rampant killing, BULLYING, that’s going on. The Devs could put a stop by just halting anyone from attacking three levels below their own, but that might stop the money from coming in and they can’t have that. It’s going to come to a point where everyone leaves and the only ones left are the credit card players, and soon they’ll have to attack their own. This game was fun, it’s just not anymore. So if you have a credit card it’s a great game for you, if you don’t have a credit card with an endless supply of cash stay away from this game.
My state is dead
by THEPaNzEE1 on 2021/08/22 22:42
State 72 is dead top 5 clans went an joined forced into 1 clan cause there arent enough players to play against in the state itself an now anyone who comes into are state is just dying cause we have all the strongest people in the state so now all we can do is events games fun but would like to smash the low population states together , also people in my state are running 3 different accounts an ruin the game for people with 1 account example:i try to do one of the events an it takes alot of stuff or materials to do it an i have 1 account so i use all my stuff to place high in the ranks only to have some guys 2nd account thats low level win because over the course of the game they just save an save because their 2nd account doesnt get used to often so it makes it impossible to place at the top cause once you start to beat someone they use the 2nd account just so you dont win because there main account could caught up cuz they sont have enough stuff to do so which is very much unfair to anyone else whos trying to do events
DO NOT DOWNLOAD IF YOU DONT HAVE MONEY
by Cuddii* on 2020/11/12 02:13
Well hello fellow game players, I downloaded this game almost 1 year ago. Its fun, interesting, full of people but recently the game developers have made it apparent that money is more important than the players. This game is most definitely a power hungry contest. More power you have, more friends you have. Starting out power didn’t cost a lot of money, $20 here $20 there. No big thing. Now it’s THOUSANDS of dollars. You are now PHYSICALLY UNABLE to progress in the game at the pace needed to in order to survive. (Survive; you have your own army of troops, when they die, you no longer can play the game; stronger players kill your troops). I have spent close to $1,000 dollars on this game and It’s very heartbreaking to know that a majority of my fellow players that I have made close friendships with will now be unable to progress in the game and await our demise from stronger (rich) players. The developers will auto respond to this review and tell us “your voices are being heard” - “please contact us through the help message in game” but they don’t help. Our in game inventory goes missing, they don’t help, our purchases don’t get added, don’t help. It’s always automated responses. It’s really a shame what the developers have done and continue to do. This game is fun, you make a lot of friends and it is BEYOND time consuming but if you don’t have thousands of dollars to spend on it, please don’t waste your time. S104
Terrible customer service. DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY
by Fab_was_here on 2021/04/07 20:11
I have been playing this game for almost a year. It has been fun and there are a lot of good qualities to it. What has ruined it is the lack of interest to their user base. I had made a purchase and the game crashed (the game crashes A LOT) and i contacted their customer service, which is pretty much a chat bot. Waited. Waited. Waited some more and nothing so i contacted apple. They issued a refund and thats when I received a response from SoS. I was placed in probation for requesting a refund and until i pay back the refund i would not be allowed back. WHAT? Lol.. i pleaded my case but they refused to acknowledge the validity of my claim and kept repeating that refunds requests are a violation to their terms.. what a joke... especially from someone whose spent a pretty penny in this game. When i submitted my ticket with customer service i had all documents. I had receipts, proof of purchase from paypal/apple as well as screenshots that the package that i paid for was still locked.. they still refused to see the evidence and only focused on me requesting a refund from apple. As if im supposed to wait a long time to request a refund.. this is a big community with loads of servers on discord. I’ve shared my experience in all of them and this has been echoed by a lot of players. So many issues with purchases and customer care not caring about it. So users beware, they do not care about you.
Players are unheard
by Matteson's Girl on 2021/10/05 15:51
I have been playing this game for over a year. I would call myself a moderate spender. I have invested $1,000’s of dollars. I am definitely a top 20-25 player in my state. My husband also plays, and he is one of top 10 strongest players in the state. So you see, we’ve invested a lot of money and time. Our alliance is ranked 2 in our state and we’re competitive on a global scale with players reaching the top 100 global leaderboard. Now we watch as our state and alliance dies around us. Players are leaving everyday. There is no replacing them because there are no players left to replace them with. The constant large upgrades have made spenders leave because their previous $20,000 investment is no longer going to be able to compete with the player that is dropping another $20,000 into the newest upgrades. The gap between free-to-play and pay-to-play is almost laughable at this point. To top off costs and the dying state components the game is incredibly glitchy and at game day reset you know you’re not going to be able to login. The rewards for the “everyday” events like bunkers and facilities, horde, plague zones, intel, CC, and SvS are so dated and really only help low spend players that are just starting out. Help save our dying states and reinvigorate gameplay in older states and not with events that just cost us more money either. You can do better SoS.
No sure why
by Punky green 81 on 2020/11/07 06:53
Not sure why I keep logging in. No sure why I even hit the buttons, not sure why I train troops,not sure why I care. This game has no point at first you have fun you build you grow then it all stops. It then becomes a game of well I’ll log in just to see if my people have been eaten, or if my supplies have been taken in a attack, it at the point of sheer boredom. So I’m not sure why I keep logging in and clicking the buttons. The constant updates got old 20 updates ago and that is not an exaggeration. The “ challenges” are not. The game is boring and the same all the time some events have been interesting but mostly the same thing with different colors so do one event and you’ve done them all it just repeats and repeats and repeats endlessly. You can’t grow or develop anything new after about week 2 so I have no idea why I keep playing. 3-4 months and I keep hoping this update will bring something new and nope. So developers maybe add something new please, games can be repetitive but really you are bringing a whole new level to so beyond the same..I hope you actually understand what I’m saying, and I hope anyone thinking of downloading this doesn’t, and I’ll probably unload it soon it really a waste of time and space on my device. But it’s become a habit to just click but it brings me no joy and very very very very little entertainment.
Update 1.9 was terrible
by txwolf32 on 2020/09/25 21:56
This game is good for what it is. It’s a zombie survival game. I mean I spend more time fighting other survivors than zombies, but whatever. I enjoy it for the events and the fun I have with the players. Overall it could be better for reasons I state below. Each update seems to have more and more things that players are not requesting and less things we actually want. Please listen to those who are playing your game and fix the issues. We can all adapt to changes and work with new ideas, but completely overhauling something that has no problems, with no reasoning, makes no sense and only takes away from the gaming experience. Many of us have put a lot of time and money into the game, so consider that before just trashing what we love about the game and take heed to our suggestions. There have been update that came as a request of players, and that’s awesome but more often than not it’s a patch or a throw in instead of being a planned thing. A lot of players are starting to get stuck in old states that are dead, so consider opening state moves or combining states so those players can keep enjoying the game. Take the time to focus on where your money comes from instead of how you can make more of it. Thanks.
Honest Opinion
by mya1101 on 2021/11/17 12:33
Since there isn&#39;t an updated Review on this game and I know that Reviews are technically personal opinions, but hear me out. This game is somewhat fun and somewhat boring. I play it daily and there&#39;s some pros and cons. I wish the cooldown for the Settlement Buffs were less because I can&#39;t take a 20 minute without my settlement getting attack and then I&#39;m back to square 1, trying to make &#34;money&#34; again. It&#39;s also very simple to get currency in this game. I&#39;ve only spent money on this game once and it&#39;s only been $4.99 other than that in my opinion, you really don&#39;t have to spend money on this game like others are saying. I also think there should be a mute button for messages that are being sent by Alliance members because they can be some spammers and it gets pretty annoying from time to time. Not to mention, that after you finish beating all of the &#34;Boss&#34; zombies to unlock your land that&#39;s it, there&#39;s no more boss levels to complete which is kind of boring because that was the only reason why I continued to play this game. There are mini version of the boss levels on a mini map, but I preferred the bigger boss levels you had to clear to unlock land. Like I said there&#39;s pros and cons, but overall 3.5 stars, semi good game.
Don’t put money or time into a game that requires you to bind your account.
by MACD trended on 2019/11/12 03:42
The app restarted my game when I upgraded my phone. Don’t put your money or time into this game unless you can bind the account. It’s been over a week since I last logged in. Several active players sent Help and Support messages about what happened. Help and support is useless even though you send screenshots of all the transactions, chief information, coordinates, etc. I hope players are still active if I ever get my account back. Other than that I had fun playing the game. I enjoyed customizing my settlement and teaming with other players to fight the plague. If help and support were better this would be a five star game. Update: Help and Support was able to relocate my account after 26 days and I’m happy to play again. Unfortunately my base’s resources and troops were all depleted and I couldn’t start off running. My absence has impacted the alliance and many players lost interest in the game. I tried my best by purchasing several packs to rebuild my settlement and troops but I wasn’t the strong player that I used to be. I tried to motivate players to participate in events but we weren’t able to place anymore. It’s sad to see the players that I invested my time into leave the game. I tried my best.
Don’t waste your time. It’s rigged to make you spend money .
by 82k8u3 on 2021/01/11 16:45
This game has potential to be fun. But it’s an exercise in futility. You join up and get put in a state only to see level 30 players who spent hundreds and thousands of dollars bullying everyone who doesn’t spend money or is new. So you can have your settlement for a week and some other player comes along who’s been playing for a year destroys you. Even if you spent money for the first week they are to powerful and the money you spent was a waste. They even have an event called kill stage where you get points for kills. So after joining for 5 days I got attacked by one alliance a bunch of times and had no troops and they moved my settlement as it burned to the ground . So essentially starting from scratch . I got placed in a state where 90% of the alliances are foreign. And they see an American player and I am a sitting target. I join a decent size alliance and they dictate where we can build and what we can and can’t do. So much fun!! Sarcasm of course. Save your money on another game. I hope one person who spends money reads this and goes to another game instead and spends their money elsewhere. And Kings group knows this, I have spoken to other dissatisfied players who have written Kings and they don’t care. It’s stacked for spenders.
LOVING IT
by Denise Heneka on 2020/03/01 00:33
I love how the game is baste on zombies I love zombies games so much it’s something that is interesting to me and I also love how the game is based on zombies because when I was little about three or four are used to watch The Walking Dead all the time my mom just let me watch it constant I really like zombies and gory movies so for me to download this game is a real treat for me. That is why I downloaded the game state of survival and this is also why I rated this a four star review it is probably one of the best games I’ve ever downloaded in my downloading history I am very happy to have a state of survival game it is also like I said a very awesome treat for me so thank you for Creating this amazing zombies game so for whoever made this game you are the best person living yes of coarse a lot of people are the best at living I guess but this is just the best game I’ve had so thank you so much for putting this game in the game store I really appreciate this and I’m going to play it over and over again all my life this is why I picked a four star rating yet because it has its ups and downs but I really think that this game has some talent and I think that I’m going to play all my life so thank you and goodbye.
LONG TIME PLAYERS LEAVING IN DISGUST.
by Nanna's angle on 2021/12/05 01:49
I have been playing this game for approximately two years. It was fun to start with new and exciting but has turned into a money pit. If you do not spend money you get nowhere in this game and that is exactly what they want you do to. There are players who have been playing this game since the beginning who are leaving because they are disgusted with the poor customer service, updates that are never right, events where they steal your items from you and do not even tell you in the rules for the event that this is going to happen. You get kicked out of the game all the time. Terrible lag, game freezing and cannot get it to undo without going out and coming back in the game. I am very frustrated that they do this to their customers who play this game and get away with it. Long time players we are talking about just quitting because they are so disgusted with Kings Group. So beware of this game but if you enjoy being lied to, items stolen, getting kicked out of the game, lagging game so bad it just sits there and spins and then they have the never to tell you it is your connection. Well it never happened before until the upgrade they do. They do the upgrades and never fix the problems. So please find another game to play besides a Kings Group game and save yourself a ton of headaches.
Good Game, but don’t spend money here
by DC/MD lawyer mommy on 2021/05/13 14:49
The game is fun. But you need to be very careful about where you settle down and where you choose to build your headquarters. Before you build, or invest ANY money, try to get a sense of the alliances there. Once you are there for a few days, you cannot take your HQ and move to another state, so you have to abandon it and start over. And spend more money. Many states are full of bullies, who destroy weaker alliances for no reason and force them to abandon what they have built. The game does not prevent the strongest players (5 star/level 35) from attacking anyone, no matter the difference in power. It does not limit the number of attacks or cap resources that can be stolen. People are openly bullied and harassed in the state chat by these groups. That is a BIG problem in this game. The developers do not respond or assist, even when presented with picture evidence of the bullying, copies of attack logs and other evidence. Probably because they already got the money from the players and don’t care. This game could be so much better and enjoyable for everyone, with a few small changes, and if the developers cared to stop the terrible behavior. But, so far they have not, and some states, like 493, have turned into dumpster fires.
False Advertising Up The Wazoo
by cbf sad h on 2021/04/10 19:14
Just wanna say real quick I didn’t have a problem with this game player wise before seeing all these ads, now I feel like I’ve gotta say something. The game is literally every kingdom building game ever. Tapping and waiting and paying to not wait as long, like we’ve all played and complained about before. I actually don’t have too much of a problem with this game aside from what I’ve just listed because I went into this gaming KNOWING what I was getting into and knowing that if I wanted to get ahead and upgrade stuff without waiting months on end I was gonna have to pay outta pocket. I’ve had this game for a few months and play it when I’m bored, it’s good for wasting time and if I care to pay attention to the 19,000 different story lines going on in the game then that too also passes the time for me. But I’m writing this one star review because what I cannot stand is seeing all the false advertising for this game on other apps and ads. It’s ridiculous and it’s pathetic you dupe people into downloading your app because they think if they play long enough and get through the half hour hand holding tutorial that they’ll finally get the kind of action they saw in your advertisements that made them download in the first place, when in reality they won’t. Shame on y’all.
Not bad, surprisingly fun and addictive
by Right side only on 2021/02/09 18:48
I just downloaded this game yesterday. I have spent money on it, because I’m impatient and from prior experiences playing games like this. If you don’t pay for some of the “perks”(extra resources, speed up etc.); you will be a target for the really big spenders. They will zero you out and lose interest in the game. You can’t play on your own, you will need to join an alliance to make it easier to get resources and reduce the amount of time building and researching. It seems like the devs are listening to the players, on current event, they lowered the requirement to obtain prizes. The game is simple and isn’t too hard to figure out. One of the things I think that needs improvement is the requirements to get a peace shield. You have to use “bio-caps”, which are hard to get. If you get bio-caps, it’s takes a lot of them to get a 24 peace shield. Quick search on the internet, I found you can enter codes to get bio-caps and others things to get you going, that is a nice surprise. Overall it’s not that bad of a game. The packs are inexpensive, but they increase in price when you purchase one. So be careful and select wisely.
Better than Most!
by FreshieeFresh on 2019/11/09 17:37
I’ve played this game fore only 3 days but I can tell that this is a different experience than what I’m used to. I’m this game there are so many different gameplay mechanics that you may forget. Not only can you attack other players bases, but there is a single player mode, and side quests. The single player missions are similar in terms of gameplay and the story may be not that fleshed out, but it’s still highly enjoyable. However this is a free to play game, so how are the micro transactions handled? Unfortunately every time you load up the game they will shove a micro transaction opportunity done your throat. They also put micro transaction logos over key buildings in the game in the hope that players will click on them. I have done this several times and it’s an annoyance in my opinion. I understand why they do this, but I still don’t agree with it. However the positive to all of this? You DO NOT need to buy these transactions to progress at an acceptable pace. There are plenty of ways to speed up building construction and scientific research. Overall I think if you like zombie games, base builder, and simply want something to pass the time download this game and try it out.
State of Broken Tutorial
by Tae98Lily on 2020/10/19 00:43
The entire game feels like a tutorial where a hand cursor shows you where to tap to progress the story. Exploration missions are boring and are fully automated. They present no challenge whatsoever. The infected in the wilderness map are all such pushovers except for rallies. After you get through the prologue, the game becomes frustrating yet still a cakewalk because you have to spend biocaps or wait for HQ to upgrade just to continue the tutorial (I mean story) and the hand cursor directs you to buy biocaps when you should already have enough. As a result, new players might think they have to pay for biocaps when they have thousands in their inventory that they have to claim manually. Shortly after starting Chapter 2, the game started to lag even in text boxes for the story to the point that it took more than a second for each word to pop up on the screen. I doubt that is an issue with network latency because the story is probably locally cached. Also, there are no voiceovers after Chapter 1 is through with. The hand cursor still does not go away and is trying to force me to upgrade my heroes when they are upgraded as far as possible now and the game will no longer respond to swiping the touch screen to move around the home base. That is when I deleted this app.
You will spend all of your money
by TJSINP on 2020/12/26 09:59
This game is fun with many ways to strategize for optimal play. However, the constant barrage of advertisements for $4.99 here and $4.99 there to enhance your experience are designed for players to accept without thinking. For those with problems of self control, especially during a pandemic when you’re trying to find an escape from the real world, you will easily spend thousands of dollars without realizing it. In order to be a top player in this game and compete for top prizes, you will have to spend $10,000+ and deal with sexual harassment, hate, bigotry, xenophobia, and a multitude of other undesirable characteristics of top players. I have created accounts in at least 7 different states in this game and there is only one state that has some semblance of organization. It can be fun, but it can also be financially devastating and gut wrenching for people looking for a simple escape during a global crisis. Along with that, there are updates all of the time that include major game lag and missed opportunities to participate in events due to these constant upgrades. I’m sure there is a better game out there where you can have just as much fun, meet people from all over the world, and spend a fraction of the money. Go see for yourself but heed the warning.
Wonderful progression in states
by Aftremn on 2020/11/06 14:23
This game is wonderful. The world is broken down into states. Each state is independent and the game promotes cooperation within that state. If you join a newly created state, the zombies that appear on the map are less powerful and the “high level” areas of the map are locked down. As the state grows over time, higher levels of zombies unlock and eventually your state unlocks the ability to have a player to be the governor of the state and grant state wide buffs using currency earned by everyone in that state and eventually battle against other states. I’m not sure if it is due to state specific player enforced rules, but players in my state do not zero out bases or pick on low level bases as I have experienced on other war style games. It is possible to be competitive by investing time into the game without paying but as in most games, I suspect the top 10 teams are made up mostly of people who spend money every week. There are a good number of events that rotate and some that appear as your state progresses.
Broken/glitchy app - No support
by Nachtbringer on 2021/08/10 02:47
This game is super glitchy and crashes constantly. I’ll get locked out of the game for hours and have entire events or tasks I miss because of constant glitches and crashing. Events are basically “pay to win/pay to play” and so is pretty much every other part of the game. This would be fine except that I will spend the money, and it could be a few hundred dollars, on events, only for it to crash every time I try to load it and prevent me from playing much if any of said event. As the issues have been getting steadily worse over the last few months, as much as I loved and enjoyed the game, I am ready to call it quits. I want the money I’ve put into the game back because it’s literally unplayable. Of course the developers and apple support are both completely unhelpful telling me I should try and dispute the charges with my bank instead of trying to get help from them. I’ve never considered getting a Samsung before now. Moral of the story, don’t get this game. With as expensive as it is to play, it shouldn’t be broken to the point that it is often unplayable, and don’t expect help from the developers or apple when it doesn’t work. They knew they were selling a faulty product and so they won’t do anything about it to help.
Nice game BUT..
by Sid 😡😡 on 2020/10/04 23:27
As other reviews have already pointed out that game is pretty nice and addictive but once you get past level 10 it’s too hard to upgrade buildings and heroes, get some legendary heroes and train troops without purchasing bundles. Not only that the bundles only keep getting more and more expensive. The event rewards have also become limited and hard to get basically purchase more bundles to complete events to get those “free rewards” However, the most annoying thing of all this their ‘help and support’. I purchased a bundle but the transaction failed. I was charged for the purchase anyway so I reached out for assistance but got no response (aside from them asking for receipt which I provided). You would think that the game that you spend so much money on would have a good customer service but oh well! The only reason I still am on the game is because my alliance is awesome but don’t know how long I can keep up with their poor service. Oh did I forget to mention the horrible glitches 😊 every update basically releases a new glitch :) the app freezes/ crashes, rewards go missing (again no help from ‘help and support’), lags a lot!! I wish they would focus a little on the reviews and suggestions
Fun
by britxannx on 2021/01/01 17:06
Great time pass or buffer for another wait time game. Mini missions killing zombies and alliances. What’s not to loveeeeeee. People you rescue will teach you things as well as your alliance. There’s an open world chat with a translator as well. For most part people are chill can be mean to noobs and you can get your occasional creep. But just don’t chat or report the player. Most part those like I said people are chill. Been playing for a few days still trying to figure out everything. They offer a lot and don’t have to pay to play. Graphics are cool and load times aren’t a major. Can be fun solo and with friends/family. I do recommend this game based on the missions and not pay to play. There is daily rewards and things to keep busy as you wait for your base and troops to upgrade or train. Fun fun fun thanks these are my personal opinions and I did get a reward for this review. It’s nothing crazy just a simple thanks in game play. You can play at your own pace and not rush through things.
Well it’s been over a year…
by CKRUEGER5398 on 2021/12/26 16:57
I didn’t write a review at first because I’ve played plenty of games like this. Though this one has more conversations with its players and developers via discord, there’s many things ignored. As players, we’ve given what we want or need constantly and yet every update has things we never asked for or wanted. You manage your settlement, your heroes, your chief. The best part of the game, is finding an alliance you connect well with. I’ve made some of the best friends and family, and they are the only reason I haven’t stopped playing. Our state is dying and quickly. Our big spenders are quitting, our F2P can’t keep up because the rewards don’t update. A merge of servers is desperately needed and though we’re being told it’s happening, it keeps getting pushed. Many maxed players have an overstock of items in their backpacks that are now useless, but they keep getting them as rewards. Getting frags for heroes is either pay or fall behind. It’s definitely a player beware. Unless you are a social person, you will quit quickly. The friends are the only thing that makes this “chore” worth it.
Great Game, Horrible Customer Service
by sunwhisper on 2020/09/28 20:13
This is a great game to play, a little glitchy at times but things you can live with. If you are new to the game, start at a new state. If you go into an existing state it will be difficult unless you are spending money. Even in a new state, you have to spend money to level up and keep up with other players or you will get burned. Customer service is pretty bad. I have had issues buying packs and not getting items, this happens more than you would like it to. And a familiar story among Alliance members and they don’t take banking transaction details as proof which is crazy. They want screenshots of the game etc when you don’t take as you never assume your purchase is going to fail. Also when you log tickets for things going missing in your backpack or using items that are taken away from inventory yet the buff does not work is troublesome as it is impossible to get CS to give you back any items. I have had to wait days for CS to respond and at the end of going backwards and forwards for a week, they say “No issue found” and you just lose anything that went missing.
Created to take your money
by Artistic Advertising on 2020/08/17 19:03
Although this game is enjoyable at first, it was only created to take your money. It has many features and is very intricate, but at a point you can only advance if you buy some sort of game feature like a hero bundle, or badges, etc. You cannot get to the level of your enemies unless you spend $4.99 here or $1.99 there. I got to level 7 for free but in order to get to level 8 I would have to spend $4.99 for a feature to get over an obstacle. What would I get for real cash from my Apple wallet? Some stupid virtual advancement that vaporizes as soon as I delete the game off my phone, only to find another obstacle requiring another $4.99. The game developers are geniuses for devising this game scheme, however. “Create a game where users will get addicted and be ‘forced’ to buy character features in order to ‘win’!” Which never happens because there are too many other networked players with more ability than you who have probably spent $1000 on game features. What a waste! Don’t get addicted to this game-you will have nothing to show for it in the real world after your piggy bank or Apple wallet is empty. Instead, spend your money on an online business course where you can make money for your family.
Awful support
by Blake.D on 2022/01/01 19:44
I normally don’t review but this game has really chapped me. It’s a great game, I have spent hundreds of days and more in money on this game and play it daily still. I have no issues with the game itself but rather the company. This game like every other game now days has micro transactions, I purchased them for months now with no issues. Last week however I spent my $50 for a few packages of gear parts and did not receive them. I contacted support and was told it can take up to 24 hours. They said if I had not heard back by then to contact them again. I waited and waited and didn’t get anything in game so I reached out again and was left with silence. I then let them know I would be requesting a refund and I reached out to Apple who issued the refund within a day. I was then contacted 2 days later by support letting me know that any future packages I purchased would be held until I had spent the $50 with them again. They are stealing from the player base and Apple allows it to happen. Once again the game is great but read online before you spend money I am not alone in this their are plenty of people in the same position as me. I will not be spending any more money with them and the account is now in my eyes useless.
Ineptitude and greed, a pathetic combination
by Man4allrsn on 2021/03/08 17:24
First, the game is fun. Let’s get that out of the way. Having said that, let me state categorically that to really get anywhere in this game you better have a serious amount of money to blow on crap. Everything costs, and they nickel and dime you to death. I spent several hundred dollars in a matter of a couple months. In light of that, let me add that their support is non-existent most of the time and completely incompetent for the remainder. I had an issue over the disappearance from my storage of a few items purchased. I acknowledged that they had been there, but somehow vaporized from my inventory. In dealing with this i was passed off to multiple people, having to re-explain every time. The general tactic was to wear me down until i gave up. When that failed, Their response was: you got the items, have a nice day. They never actually understood the problem, or they pretended they didn’t. In the end, i’m not certain if i’m more offended by their incompetence in solving a problem over $7.98, or their stupidity in sacrificing hundreds of dollars in future revenue from me over such a piddly amount. Whatever. I no longer care, but i will NEVER give these people another dime, and you shouldn’t either.
DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME! BREEDING GROUND FOR BULLIES!
by LointerLeo on 2020/07/08 22:30
DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME! REPEAT: DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME! THIS IS BREEDING GROUND FOR BULLIES! YOUR MONEY WILL GO WASTED! The game lures you in with humans have to be cooperative during a zombie apocalypse and they did a beautiful job at that. In the early stages of the game, you would be building up your home, your troops, gathering resources and killing zombies. After a certain point, ugly head started to rear up. Stronger players, either started playing before or serious players who spent lots of money, started going around bullying people. They would send their troops around razing your home and your hard-earned money. Since they keep attacking you and killing your new troops, raiding your resources while building their own, you have almost no chance of fighting back. And mods do not intervene at all! Other games would have a system to prevent things like this from happening but these developers make no efforts at it. The whole state turned into bullies&#39; hunting ground and the money you spent early in the game is wasted. AGAIN! DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME! *** P.S: I am not taking this down unless devs start cracking down on bullying in this game. Either ban them outright or move them to a more developed state where they can fight people their own weight, but DO SOMETHING!
Survival
by weenis elbow on 2021/11/04 13:13
It seems others are having a similar experience that I have also encountered. Love the game and nearly everything about it. It’s the only game I play. However, customer service isn’t a service. It’s seems more of trained responses to somehow blame you for an issue that we have no control over. I initiated 4+ tickets and was dismissed each time, having to come up with more proof, screenshots, and narrative. I tried explaining what happened each time, even stating that I don’t want a refund or exchange (I just wanted the item I purchased), but the gist of all replies “it is impossible” (their own words). After receiving the same message despite evidence I simply wanted to be understood which I have now given up on. I’ll still play the game, but will not interact with no “help &amp; support” for as long as humanly possible. I would give this game more than 5 stars if I could otherwise. Hopefully this review doesn’t impact my gameplay, but had to share my experience as it appears I am not alone. Keep on surviving everyone! Please don’t send some automatic developer response saying y’all are fixing the issue. I suggest simply making it what it is - a service.
Way more fun than I expected
by <3siena<3 on 2021/01/07 06:55
From the ad I saw, I just thought it was going to be a sort of tower defense style game. It is in some aspects, but there’s really a lot going on in this game. There’s plot and storyline, interesting characters, and a large variety of tasks. There’s also worldbuilding, alliances, and of course there’s the combat which is fun as well. While there are a lot of of elements the game makes it easy to figure out what’s going on by making innovative tasks and goals. There’s also an interesting function where townspeople ask you little trivia questions about gameplay which help make sure you understand what’s going on (if you get them right you get a reward!). I thought I would just download as a way to pass the time but it’s honestly very great. Also while I haven’t had the game long, I haven’t felt like the game is “pay to play” as many games like this are. Now as I continue maybe that will change, but for now I am greatly enjoying it.
Don’t do it
by JFHeff on 2021/04/15 08:01
The gameplay itself isn’t bad, although it does seem to keep getting more bugs or half developing things and rolling out a “beta” version of something new and just eventually abandoning altogether without warning or real updates which is kind of frustrating. But that isn’t really the big issue, the problem I had was the customer service, it was laughable when you did contact them about bugs and glitches. I once tried for over a week to tell them about a problem I had SPENDING more! As in the game glitched and wouldn’t let me, and they handled it with the most broken communication and cryptic messages over a week plus of random back and forth, seriously it was so frustrating at first it infuriated me but went on in such comical fashion resulting in total absurdity I just had to laugh at it all by the end. In summary, the game is of average interest to play, it is very limited unless you want to spend a lot, and be prepared that even if you are ok with that and accept it, it might not always let you and the customer service to problem solve towards any real solution is not going to be there. Lots of options out there, I recommend swiping left on this one.
Double Charges, Support threatens and robs
by FS0SYALLGR33DYAF on 2021/03/08 02:54
This game is 100% pay to play. Be prepared for that before you download. Don’t download if you run iOS Beta programs, or honestly even if you have iOS (they gave Hawai players extra time after some events end so you spend $$ to win and surprise you don’t). Not only that, they are double charging you regularly. Me and several of my alliance members noticed this. They contest refund with Apple, then after you contest they give in but send you a nasty message saying you won’t get future purchases of the same dollar amount (essentially saying they’ll take your $$ til they get back what Apple refunded). Their customer support takes AGES to get back to you, and is incompetent to say the least. They said, and I quote: if frequent refunding is detected, swift and decisive action will be taken. Like what? You gonna sue me for you double charging and me requesting a refund? Screw these greedy developers. Oh btw, they charge tax on all in app purchases so that 4.99 comes to 5.29. I dropped $200 in a couple weeks and they still take forever to reply. F these developers Fr. If you read this good luck man and I hope you are ready to hand over your wallet. I only stay for my alliance fam 😅
Unprofessional Rude Greedy

The two stars are because I like the game, but your customer support is ridiculous and condescending. I have NEVER had to leave a bad review ever, but this treatment will not go unspoken, the fact that I’ve spent my hard earned money to enjoy a game is fine, but the simple fact is when I don’t get my money’s worth is outright thievery. I’ve tried to contact you through in game support and on Instagram and of course I got no reply except when I told you that I would go through apple to resolve the issue your response was &#34; glad you can get the issue resolved &#34;. That’s disgusting to say the least, I’ve noticed from other reviews that you enjoy giving your customers the run around and unfulfilled support, I am appalled that you have the nerve to not either reimburse me or compensate me for my time and money. I promise you and I don’t break promises, I will happily and vigorously let everyone know on every social platform of your blatant disregard for paying customers and your complete and utter lack of responsibility via Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Discord and reddit forums. There was albino sense in treating me or any other customer in this fashion.
Overall Experience

Here is how i rated. I start with 5 stars. One star was deducted for not having good clarity of game play. I highly recommend a short video of the main beginners topics (informing that there are alliances out there to join, how to communicate with other members, what not to do as a beginner like attack. Lol). The subtopics like building, research, etc. you do very well in guiding. You teach really good on how to press and what to press. I realized this was my second time playing (trying it out) after a large period of time in between. The first time as I was building I did the dumb mistake of attacking a base. Lol. They demolished everything I worked for. So I stopped. I was not in an alliance because I was still trying to figure things out. Makes me wonder how many other people are in the same predicament, which is why I dropped another star. Loosing player interest quickly due to lack of knowledge. On another note, how awesome would it be to be able to interact with this through VR? Is it possible to somehow create something where you could play either through mobile or VR?
Fun game!

This is a pretty fun game to play and spend a little time on. I definitely prefer this game over to most others in the category. Games like Evony and Fire Age are not as good as State of Survival. The only game similar that I think still trumps it is Clash of Clans. However they are very different games so maybe not a fair comparison. This game is relaxing and simple. It’s pretty easy to progress through the game as well. However, the couple reasons that I gave this a 4 star instead of 5 are: 1. There seem to be a couple bugs for me. The one that stands out the most is the alliance donations. They don’t ever seem to work properly. It either says that I can’t donate or they will reset in 10:00 with a countdown timer that just restarts over and over again. 2. I believe the game could do a bit better at explaining some of the minor things or what specific buildings do. It does a good job of explaining the main parts of the game but there are some alliance features that I don’t understand as well as some of the buildings purposes.
Bullied by High Level Player

I really enjoyed this game and didn’t mind grinding and paying for supplies. It’s taken me awhile to realize that one high level player has been attacking my lower level settlement over and over again. Last night I just realized that the rewards of all the grinding I’ve been doing for over a month were in the messages, reports, so I happily collected them all. I felt dumb for not knowing they were there all along, but was thrilled that I could grow. Along the way I’ve also made several in app purchases for supplies. Well, color me SHOCKED when I signed in today to see that almost ALL OF MY RESOURCES WERE GONE! I looked in the battle log to see what happened and that’s when I saw it, a high level player name AHA, has been attacking my settlement consistently. I just never notice much was missing because I never had much. So I grind and spend real $$ on this game only do a big time player can come take it all. And then…oh this is rich…and then this game offers to let me buy a booster package, or whatever they call it to help replenish my lost goods!!! AM I BEING PUNKED?? Well, no more. Don’t waste your time or money with this app. It should be named “State of a Rip Off”!
