Nothing but Spending
by Arron Lei on 2021/04/15 23:01
No any challenges if you want to spend money. No skill, very simple , you can get any level if you spend enough money. Literally it’s that kind of game for dumb riches.
Nothing but a scam
by Mdawg7575 on 2021/04/14 14:55
This game will steal your money and black your account. I wouldn’t recommend this game. It’s full of racist comments and inno allows it to occur. Inno will take your money then ban your account. I’m currently disputing a charge with my credit card. Inno is not a good game.
FIX THIS
by I HATE DA ADS on 2021/04/13 16:08
So me and my housemate play together a lot, and we really like the game. BUT. I just tried contributing a single forge point to flip their building and it said that you can’t contribute to someone with the same internet connection. I get that someone could try to cheat that way, but seriously?? There are loads of people who use the same connection who aren’t cheating, and are just trying to play the game. Again, I get that people could cheat like that, but it really takes away from the game. I won’t be able to help them move their buildings up, and they won’t be able to help me on mine. The only reason I’m not rating this five stars is because of that. Please fix it.
Indecisive developers
by Sabes1313 on 2021/04/13 10:42
I have been playing for 5 years or so. Spent the last 3 years developing my chateau to play an unorthodox but effective style of play. A change was instituted to limit the number of cycled quests, which is the whole purpose of the chateau. So I’ve spent the last 3 years developing a building within the parameters of the game... and they decided to just erase what I’ve done in that time. Complete lack of consideration for players who have invested so much in this building. They need to revert this change or allow players to transfer investments from chateau to other buildings. Update: I’ve put in a reasonable request to transfer points from my chateau to another building and they denied me. Don’t waste your time playing this game. They change the rules on a whim and clearly don’t care about their players.
Ossified game
by retail_investor on 2021/04/13 02:53
Fun for a while. But it suffers from major unexplained and bad game mechanic changes, and most of the new features and content are just uninspired or outright bad. Would have been a fun game to get into five years ago. Not anymore so much.
Slow as Molasses and its NOT PVP.
by FreeSkoolin on 2021/04/13 01:09
Don’t expect quick results. This game is like watching paint dry. If you don’t buy diamonds with real money, it’s takes longer to advance. This game is ok if you aren’t in any hurry for anything and it does not have any real fights. It’s all Ai which means you have no real control other than build up your attack percentage for success. The General Chat can get pretty raunchy too. I wouldn’t let my kids read it at times. I rate it a C+ or a low B grade. Also... PvP? That’s a joke. There is no PvP. It’s all PVE. You can’t take on some loud mouth smack talking gamer. You can’t challenge someone to a duel. It’s your NPC vs his/her NPC. May as well call it Sims. Build stuff and watch it grow.
No diamonds
by Stickman100 on 2021/04/12 21:31
Several days ago I purchased $20 worth of diamonds and as of today I still have not received them yet looking at my bank statement they already took the money out. How can I get my diamonds?
Great game BUT!
by Bjacobo4 on 2021/04/11 19:09
I love this game but as I’m progressing through it the main issue I’m seeing which is making me not want to play they game anymore is how limited the space is in your city. I would imagine that as I conquer lands the land I’m able to build on should increase. Not just talking about being able to buy squares of land but I’m talking about an increase of maximum capacity. Basically I want to be able to make my dream city. Which would include every building possible in the game and some extra space to be able to arrange it anyway I want. The space restriction really doesn’t let you build the city you want. That’s what I liked most about the game and no it’s what I hate most about it. Basically what I’m saying is when I’m a maxes or player my city should be able to fit every singe building in the game plus some extra space to organize it how the player wants please make it happen .
2000 aborts?!?
by Random717171 on 2021/04/11 02:00
Many players have spent the last couple years developing their Château Frontenac in Oder to produce goods for their guilds. Now we have wasted hundreds of thousands of Forge Points that we cannot get back.
Been Playing every Day for 3 Years Straight — AWESOME SAUCE GAME!😎
by JiMickey on 2021/04/09 05:32
Have a great time every time I play! 😃. It’s so mentally relaxing. I feel like a lot of games are rigged too much with drones that are unfair and no one can compete with and you have to spend too many diamonds to keep up. But this game feels more authentic. Like the players are all on more of an equal ground just by the nature of the way the game is set up. It requires teamwork in guilds and on 1.9 threads. It’s simplistic in nature. Easygoing. Helps just relax the mind. But still requires thought and strategy as well. Which I really like. Also, it changes often as you change your city and that keeps it quite fun too! 😃. I especially personally enjoy the st. Patrick’s day event!! I wish they had one more event similar to that one. 😏🤔 it’s stimulating! 🤩. Hope you give it a try and get a good guild and meet genuinely good people, as I have. 😊😎
Pretty lame

Some Diamond purchases don’t provide diamonds yet you are still charged
by Marinerhawk on 2021/04/06 22:31
The game is pretty cool, addicting too. Only reason I’ve given it two stars is due to the reliability of the Diamond purchasing. Now granted, 95% of the time it works. But on three separate occasions it hasn’t. When I contacted FoE and provided them with the receipt from my Apple Card they still claimed they needed more proof. Just ridiculous. I lost roughly $300 to date. But if you’re rich I suppose it doesn’t matter...

Waste of Time and Money
by WilliT on 2021/04/04 16:41
This is a really great game if you like staring at the screen while production of various currencies completes, or spending real money on fake diamonds. You can also get your shrubs “polished” by friends and strangers. Don’t ask. Advancement quickly grinds to a crawl after a brief initial burst to keep new players interested. After that, there’s not much to do other than wait... wait... wait... or pay. I’m waiting 7+ hour for Lumber, Marble and Stones as I write this review. Diamonds, the primary currency, are nearly impossible to obtain by normal game play, and expansion is very slow and difficult without them. Forge of Empires is just another mediocre pay-to-play building simulation game with nothing innovative to offer.

Substandard Season Prizes
by beserius on 2021/03/27 22:46
I’ve been playing this new season and for some reason it continually awards me that worthless one hour coin rush. I’ve gotten that 7 times in a row. Wasted a lot of my money trying to get supply rushes. I believe I’ve been spending way too much (in the thousands) on this game to have to put up with this. No randomness at all in this situation.

Stop the cheating!!
by Seirtap on 2021/03/27 17:33
I have been playing FoE for 3 years. I copied the bellow from a fellow guild mate. I completely agree with the below review/statement!! This Game is the Best I have ever played... Its fun for the long haul and moving forward means you have put in the work to advance... I have no problem with Diamonds as they can help but are not necessary IMHO. It is Multi-Level Fun until recently... Some have chosen to use Macros... Scripts... Auto Clickers to gain an unfair advantage in the day to day operation of the game in particular with regard to GVG ... the #1 way to ranking. It’s easy to detect and is explicitly against rules as an unfair advantage is gained. The integrity of the game is comprised on many levels but shockingly Inno has refused to act in any way to stop or deter this action... No amount of time or Diamonds( in game currency) can overcome this advantage. Wake up Inno ! The Goose that lays the Golden Eggs for You is almost dead. If I could find I game just like this but without the institutional level cheating I would go there today... Great Game .... UNFORGIVABLE MANAGEMENT AND OVERSIGHT A Five Star Game that is content to be 2 Stars
Long Haul Game
by Debin13 on 2021/03/27 17:05
This is NOT a game to play if you want to rise quickly through the ages. But, if you want a thoughtful game where strategy and teamwork is essential, this is a GREAT game. I’ve been playing it for years and have slowly risen up through the levels. I don’t understand the people who say you have to spend money to play this game. You don’t!! But, you do need patience and sometimes you have to wait to get what you want. This is not an instant gratification game. It is an intelligent, long haul, satisfying game. Enjoy!!

Bots being used for GVG
by Boricuda on 2021/03/27 15:06
I have lost total respect for this game. I have been a player for three years and the minute they allowed guilds to use scripts for GVG now everyone is able to used bots. I lost total respect for a game that used to be so fun and competitive. You will lose many more players this way.

There are so many guilds cheating.They make the game difficult to play.Gvg is land locked with #1 guild and there alt guilds.It would be great to see a bomb dropped monthly on the gvg map or a clear and reset of gvg maps every 6 months

Missing access token
by Rhea 523 the sly on 2021/03/22 01:05
I got locked out of my game this morning, and tried all day to figure it out. We finally had to delete everything and restart it luckily it worked. I had no way to access the game for help and now I hear I’m not the only one this has happened to.
Great, slight glitch though
by ratatatcat on 2021/03/21 21:35
This game is amazing and I love it, but when I try to change my password the sight that the “change your password” link sends you to just freezes and I have to re load my device to get anything to work, other wise this game Is great.
WARNING! DO NOT DOWNLOAD!
by youaredisturbing on 2021/03/21 19:27
Read the reviews!! Just like all of the reviews say, you must spend money to get through the game!! I easily spent $100 and all of a sudden they kicked me off of my game and when I submitted a ticket for help, NO RESPONSE! I repeat! DO NOT DO NOT waste your time with this game! You will spend a fortune and get NO WHERE!!

Super Buggy on iPad
by Mapmonster on 2021/03/20 20:53
Since October I’ve worked with support to fix my game on iPad (works fine on iPhone and my iPad is only 2 years old and always up to date with latest iOS). The game crashes and freezes in all phases of the game: writing messages, fighting battles (any type), moving through quest options, collecting from buildings, aiding others, etc. Literally it will freeze on any aspect of the game that requires me to click, but it will also freeze midway through an auto battle. And it even spontaneously reboots now and then. I literally have to restart the game 50-75 times a day - for 6 months now. Inno claims there’s nothing they can do. I’ve reinstalled etc blah blah many times. I’ve followed their instructions to clear all data from the iPad, but every time I reinstall the new game knows who I am and what my pw is so all info definitely doesn’t clear from the iPad. They try to blame it on apple and say the next iOS release will fix it. Nope. That doesn’t work either. And now the latest is that when I add FPs to someone’s great building the game adds a different amount than I specify and that amount is what’s remaining on the level. So I lost about 2500 FPs in 5 minutes today. I’m about done with this game.
Problems
by , dgchv RB by on 2021/03/20 19:44
I tried to play this game and I was actually having fun, perfect for when you have nothing to do. But then it booted me out of my account. I tried to get back in but it just kept saying, “incorrect username” even though it didn’t have me put in a username. I just gave up and made a second account but then it did the same thing! If it didn’t do this to me it would definitely be a five star game. Ya like jazz?
Beware-will take away your in game purchases
by Disappointed abd Ripped Off on 2021/03/20 05:42
Beware of charges for in game purchases... I purchased a diamond expansion for 19.99, and two days later with out my permission, the game charged me for a second purchase of the same without my permission, and I did not receive any diamonds for the second purchase. When I disputed the second the purchase, the game took away (reduced my diamond count) by twice the amount of diamonds I originally purchased and actually paid for, to give me a negative diamond amount? So I paid for one, but they took away the diamond amount of two purchases! They took my money and gave me nothing, and took more away! Complete rip off!!!!
Great strategy game
by Bbbbbb6868 on 2021/03/19 21:29
I would love to say this game is for all ages but due to how competitive players can be parents probably need to safeguard their credit cards if kids do play because the temptation to spend money to buy game currency (diamonds) can cost big bucks. Kidding but there is truth about it being competitive. I have been playing for almost 2 years and love this game. I am astounded at the skill and detail of the design and the people who make the game possible. Game designers work behind the scenes so we players reap the rewards. From the very beginning a player must balance space, resources, team work and resist the urge to move too fast. I don’t want to write a book but seriously I love the game. I can spend hours redesigning my city to fit a new building while trying to increase my goods production, points or attack percentage. Or, working with my team (guild) to fight for points to reach a higher rank in the WORLD. I have friends from all over the world - Thailand, New Zealand, Canada, and all over the USA. So, just for fun, check it out either at the website or with the app. Listen to your favorite music and get lost in your game. Thank you Innogames for creating this wonderful game.

Can’t log in to the game
by SaltyOverLostGems on 2021/03/18 18:54
I love my guild and playing this game, but for some reason it won’t let me log in, today. I’ve checked that the language is correct and that Facebook is connected to it, but it keeps saying “missing access token” no matter what I try. I don’t know what’s going on and I don’t want to lose my world, but I have no idea what to do.
Awful
by awafl games on 2021/03/17 13:36
This game is so bad because as somebody already said in the Bronze Age you have to use real money to advance and and not going to pay 50 bucks for something that will still not get me anywhere in the game.

I’ve played this game on and off for about 3-4 years. I’ve seen different games that try to have the same age based progress like this game but they don’t seem as fun. This game may take some time to go through the ages but it is still a very fun game. After all Rome wasn’t built in one day! Thanks again for make such a fun game with good graphics!

I started playing this and got about four days in with decent progress when suddenly i was unable to log in, repeatedly getting “missing access token” on the device which i was playing. Frustrating and not worth the energy when it won’t let me actually play it.
Great game, but only in the early stage
by Yes we might on 2021/03/13 17:04
I love playing this game for the first few turns, but end up deleting it after a while. After you’ve built your city to a point, you require more and more goods you can get only through the market with other players. One technology can literally take days to get the resources for. The combat system is ridiculous. The enemy player always has the same number of units you do, and are always of superior quality. The game grinds to a halt as you need more and more goods that are harder and harder to get. I wish the game was more balanced after your initial few turns. Good game with so much potential, but after a few turns it’s no longer worth the time.
First week of gameplay
by 3675() on 2021/03/12 20:01
I’ve been playing for a week and I think this game is excellent. Many game play options to keep me busy and entertained. If I really like a game I will invest real cash to get a good starting base plus I want to show the company my appreciation in a financial way. I had an issue with a initial purchase and had to be in touch with the customer service repeatedly, they were prompt, efficient and courteous. Thank you because I know I will be playing this game for a few years at least and I now know my money was well spent.

I LOVE FOE BUT I HATE 2 THINGS
by gaianh on 2021/03/12 15:41
1. ST PAT’S EVENT WITH A PASSION! It’s long, tedious, requires WAY TOO MUCH BABYSITTING, far from clear how to play without extensive research which contains conflicting data. The event should represent the lightness and joy of Saint Patrick not the worst kind of drudgery. I don’t like the fact that you’re mixing in parts of other events AND INTEND TO DO MORE OF THAT IN THE FUTURE. It’s adding insult to injury. I may not play it at all next time if it doesn’t crucify my game in the process, which it may. CHANGE IT TO SOMETHING MORE RELATED TO THE HOLIDAY. What the heck does St. Patrick’s day have to do with boats and don’t get me started on the insanity of quintillion’s of shamrocks. My husband is Irish I’ve celebrated St Pat’s for years and I’ve been to Ireland twice. The event is nowhere near in the spirit of the joy and shared blessings of the holiday. I’m convinced the Irish people in general would find nothing that’s familiar or speaks to their love for St. Patrick. Even the Druid thing which suits some level of the history you can’t get far with. For my sake, the sake of a lot of bored players of the event, and in true honor of the spirit of St. Patrick, GET RID OF IT or MAKE IT MORE REPRESENTATIVE OF THIS JOYFUL HOLIDAY. I spent one in Ireland in a pub singing Irish songs and ditties and soaking up the true spirit of Ireland. IT WAS FAR FROM BORING! If the event doesn’t make you feel like saying “Blessed Be” or some other typical St Pat’s good words for the day, you are doing it and us an injustice.

BE CAREFUL!! I loved this app until it started charging my bank account with diamond purchases even though I didn’t approve the transactions and never even received the purchased items. There is clearly some fraudulent stuff going on here. BE CAREFUL!!
Learning and fun!
by KK2015 on 2021/03/12 08:25
While as a teacher I admit this game can be used as a teaching tool, Forge of Empires is just plain fun! Even though part of the game is to wage war and conquer territories, the violence is not on the screen but takes place behind the scenes. I haven’t had this much fun since Age of Empires. My two adult sons would have enjoyed this as teenagers. In my experience, everyone is decently polite, and sometimes we have chuckles together. Getting everything in one’s city to work in synchrony; to build buildings; to conquer territories; and to gain goods, products and money is a challenge but enormous fun. I highly recommend this game for teenagers, adults, and seniors like me. If the programming is glitchy, I have never noticed it. As far as I can tell, the app works beautifully. The developers make continual upgrades making a great experience even better.
It’s a Grind
by Steve Fosdal on 2021/03/12 02:05
If you like grinding on a game, then maybe this is for you. Also, unless you join a guild (filled with their opinions), trading happens, but just barely. At the moment, I’d give this game 0 stars, but it was fun when I first started, for sure. Just be sure to see for yourself if its a thing for you.
Fun game

Well done multi-level Strategy game
by HQA85 on 2021/03/07 23:13
The trick here is it is a slow playing game not fast paced. Battles are part of the game but not the central part. Getting your troops ready for battle with a city that can provide and be self reliant is what I like about this game. So many routes your game can take depending on your play style. Seek out a an active med to high guild. Active in teaching younger players how to grow and active in Expedition and Battle Grounds. So much for a new player to learn to play well, it is one of the best true strategy games I have played.
Hard to progress
by jackirh on 2021/03/07 22:48
Game is addicting, but it’s hard to build in limited space. Fun themed events, but once again no place to put your winnings.
Forge of empires says its racist to speak out against racism
by Hatefulhippy on 2021/03/07 02:17
I was recently banned by the forge of empires team for speaking out against a self professed white supremacist. I said nothing vulgar or profane just simply told the player and those who sheltered and defended them that there was no excuse for such behavior. Imagine my surprise when I WAS BANNED FOR BEING RACIST AND POLITICALLY INCORRECT. I was told that my speaking out against a self professed WHITE SUPREMACIST was against the rules in the game AGAINST racist behavior. The people running the forge of empires team are clearly by their actions saying they SUPPORT WHITE SUPREMACY!! DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME!!

This game is great until you need real money to invest. I’ve spent $100 on this game and doesn’t get you far. Don’t spend your money, it’s a waste
Keeps freezing up

Since this last update, the app keeps freezing up and telling me I need to login. Very frustrating
Inno supports cheaters and punishes legit players
by Pissed42 on 2021/03/04 10:58
If you’re into cheating this is the game for you. Inno would rather support cheaters using macros and scripts by penalizing legit players as opposed to actually putting forth the effort to ban the cheaters. Way to go Inno. So...Cheaters welcome. You can set up all kinds of scripts and bots without fear...the legitimate players are all shopping for a better game. New people...don’t bother. This game was already time consuming...now you HAVE to be a bot to play it or have absolutely no real life.
You broke your game...
by Dragon81heart on 2021/03/03 19:07
Just did the latest update and now it will not let me log in at all. When I try to log in a red box on the bottom of the screen appears and is all kinds of letters and numbers (I’m sure it’s code for something) Please fix
Costly, it fun
by J.D. Cool on 2021/03/03 18:47
I have spent bunches of money to stay competitive, it the game is fun, and addictive
This game is ok
by tlovesmusic4321 on 2021/03/03 13:59
I enjoy playing FOE. I am not 100% sure what to do or the best way to play but since I play for fun I don’t stress about it. This game is definitely more intricate and challenging to play than simpler farming and gem type games. It seems difficult to expand land and know how to best play...
Enjoy the game, poor support
by Dallamir on 2021/03/03 13:37
The game is great if you like slower strategic game play. Don’t be in a big rush or you will just become a punching bag. I’ve spent real $$ but it’s not a big money sink if you pace it out. Been playing over a year and will keep playing.
Very interesting but slow
by 911 hacker on 2021/03/03 11:12
Personally I love this game and I’ve played it for about a year now. but there is one problem, sometimes it takes FOREVER to get the resources you need to research something. It gets a little annoying at times. other than that, the game is really fun to play if you like historical progression type games
Really greedy
by kate&coop on 2021/03/03 06:39
This takes forever to do anything and to expand your land it costs money or you have to wait like a month. They do everything they can to get your money. Not worth the time. Find a different game to play
Bots destroying the game
by Milleniadawn on 2021/03/02 14:24
Don’t waste your money on this game. Inno seems to have no desire to penalize players for using bots for unfair advantages. The bots have destroyed the integrity of this game.
Pay to play
by SeanV1 on 2021/03/02 10:49
Typical pay to play game. Lots of buildings that require real money to build (bakery for one). Lots of limits that are about getting you to buy diamonds to progress in the story. Developer will reply I am sure saying “oh no you can play entire game without spending real money”. It’s not true. Deleting game now.
Decent and needs extra side quests!
by Ancient Creator on 2021/03/01 16:41
Like an RPG or long good book: This game may take lots of time to play. Graphics are decent and if you want to advance more quicker which is optional you pay as one plays or chillax and take your time building your populace. ***Developers: Stay generous with the diamonds for game advancement! 100K in diamonds for 100 bux would be advantageous for players who enjoy your game like me who’ve been playing it for 2 years now. You’ll have repeat profits if you negotiate your sales right. Just sayin...
The best game ever
by sdxx5 on 2021/03/01 14:32
This game has somene thing to Do 5 stars
lost progress
by papa_gyro on 2021/02/28 20:30
i was inactive in the game for a month or two due to personal reasons, when i went back into the game i had been logged out and forced back into the tutorial. Once i logged back into my own account, i had the things the tutorial game me, like the beginning of the bronze age, but none of the other achievements i had made in my account. Other than my loss of progress the game was fine.
Not fun anymore. Cheating is rampant.
by rww28 on 2021/02/28 01:37
This was a great game. But it is no fun now that people are using bots and macros to cheat. People have reported cheating to Inno for months and Inno has done nothing to stop it.
Balance
by sarah '47 on 2021/02/25 21:40
Lots, gold, coins, supplies, efficiencies, etc— a lot to balance!
It’s ok
by mebot7200 on 2021/02/25 04:43
I just wish you were able to twist the building when your editing your city. It would make buying an expansion less of a necessity in some cases and things would fit better.
What?
by it wont give me name on 2021/02/25 02:01
For some reason I lost all my progress and 15 hours of gameplay. I just want to know what happened to all my progress.
BEWARE!! double charges!!!
by macuser917 on 2021/02/24 15:25
I really enjoy the game, unfortunately anytime I make an in app purchase the charges doubled.
Don’t be fooled like I was
by 977435799 on 2021/02/24 14:22
I was playing this game on my phone and this ad said forge of empires. It looked really cool, so I downloaded it to my phone. And to my iPad. One day I was playing and I bought some coins. When my perchse “went through “, it said that no coins have been purchased. I don’t know if this was a glitch in the game or what but, I lost almost 60 DOLLARS! I touched base with there costumer sirvece this was back in January mind you. And I’ve heard crickets this whole time. I even was going to have my lawer call. To make the story short ,don’t make the same mistake I made

Warning - Highly Addictive Game
by BattleBeagle on 2021/02/23 03:42
Three years on FoE, and I still learn new cool things. I hate interacting with every other game. But I Have found a community here. Other games drift in and out of my world. But I am a helpless Forger for life. :)
Very enjoyable.
by D huntress on 2021/02/22 21:12
Enjoyable.
Very addicting, my new favorite game
by Dmsanfrancisco on 2021/02/22 03:00
I love this game, it’s so addicting and my new favorite game. It can get a bit pricey if you purchase diamonds which helps speed up some parts of the game. It does start off a bit confusing but after I got the hang of everything I love it. They do have some tutorials which help but wish it was clearer at the beginning but all in all a great game!
Awesome Game
by Augystine Titus on 2021/02/20 18:53
This is a neat little game - a combination it seems of Civilization and Age of Wonders. Excellent game overall!
Great game

Lives Up To The Hype
by Quidzark on 2021/02/18 15:50
Excellent game all around. Simple to get started, multiple strategy options, good graphics/lay-out, well designed. After playing for a couple of hours, I spent 9.99 Modest In-App purchase well worth it. Will most likely make a couple more. I paid $40-$60 for the Civ games when they came on cd’s Don’t mind shelling out $9.99 once a month or so for a game of equal quality. I look at it as an installment plan😀
Good game

Money scam
by mambaouchiwawa on 2021/02/18 04:58
If you play free it’s all good. But when you try to buy diamonds they charge your bank account and you never receive the purchased diamonds.
Just ok
by p@s2m on 2021/02/17 23:22
I played this game hoping I could just build settlements, exchange goods, do quests etc. It started of well till production of certain goods generated hardly any product and you had to wait to build your inventory. What’s messed up is when you wait to get your goods and some other player just comes in and plunders it. I am going to give this game another week or so to see if that continues to happen, if it does I’m out of here.
The best of the best!
by Cnet73 on 2021/02/17 07:36
It’s the best game that I’ve found. You get out of it, what you want out of it.
My game gets reset every week
by OPR.INC on 2021/02/16 14:32
Why does it reset my game ???
Needs an update
by RussianManChan1 on 2021/02/16 02:55
Ill change my review to 5 if they bring back the swipe collect. Its bad that they got rid of that. Would also be cool if they let you collect over 100fp
Plundering is ruining the game
by NorCalBug on 2021/02/15 23:11
I been playing the game for about 2 months now, and used to really enjoy the game. Recently though, the joy is just being sucked out of it for me because of increased frequency of plundering, an aspect of the game I thoroughly dislike and from which I derive no pleasure, and especially by players that are so advanced that there is no earthly way I can compete. I play games to relax and enjoy, and as soon as that ceases, it’s time for me to move on. I am fast approaching that point. I wish the developers would reconsider this aspect of the game, because it caters to a tiny minority, but it ruins the fun and enjoyment for far more people than it satisfies.
Great game to play
by EchoBLegacy on 2021/02/14 22:43
I enjoy playing this game
Love this game
by cheyenne_t09 on 2021/02/14 17:31
Definitely recommend trying this one! It’s awesome. You have to use strategy to advance and helps to have teamwork.
Not getting any help from support.
by ghecrheccw on 2019/06/20 22:08
I messaged support for some help because there’s a glitch with the mass supply rushes not working for all of my supply buildings. They used to work just fine but now they only work on one out of my 4 buildings that only produce supplies. It’s very frustrating when your in an event and the things that are supposed to help you with the event don’t and then it’s worse when the people you send a message to refuse to even admit there’s an issue. They instead choose to talk to you like your stupid or lying. I don’t understand what the issue is myself there is a glitch, saying thank you for making us aware of the issue, we will work on fixing it sorry for any inconvenience or unnecessary frustration it has caused. Thank you for your patience while we fix the problem so you can keep enjoying the game. I don’t think saying something like that is to much to ask of anybody. And in my opinion is far more professional then avoiding the glitch and acting like I’m lying about it or that I don’t know what I’m talking about. What could I possibly gain from lying about a glitch and if I wasn’t 100% sure about something I would ask a question not complain.
Decent
by 🐰💕🐻💕 on 2021/02/03 14:48
FOE is a great builder style game. It has enough group activities and events to keep you interested for years. There are only two problems with the game that prevent it from being a 5 star app. 1st is the 24hr world timer on your daily resource collection. The timer makes you wait 24hrs from the time you collect to respawn those resources. For example if you are playing on your phone and want to collect your daily resources during your lunch break but someone tries to chat you up for 5 minutes you have then lost those 5 minutes because you must wait at least 24hrs to collect again. And well if this happens again and again you can see how eventually you will lose entire days worth of resource collection. Other games I have played used 20 or 23hr world timers to give players more freedom but as FOE is roughly 4yrs old at the time of writing this they clearly intend to stick with this format. 2nd as you can trade resources across the “Ages” it means you can obtain the best buildings (great buildings) at any point in the game provided you are able to farm enough expansion tiles to place them. This leaves players little incentive to move up to next age. Indeed it actually makes many features of the game harder. Which is really a shame because the art and the work in general that they put into these ages is kinda amazing.
In-Game Expansion Costs Real Money
by jayg44706 on 2019/07/25 10:01
I like games that allow me to construct kingdoms and civilizations, so I thought this game would be fun. It started out pretty fun, and my empire advanced in technology relatively quickly. However, you get to a point relatively soon (the Bronze Age, I believe) where the only way to expand buildable space is to purchase diamonds (with real money) which you then use buy land to expand on. There are very limited expansions you can use the in-game currency to purchase, even though building in-game currency happens quickly. And victory and research progress provides very little land expansion. Which brings me to a second issue that ties into the land expansion problem. In order to progress through time, you have to conduct research. This involves a combination of spending points that automatically accrue, production, and in-game coin. One concept to developing new research requires a number of different productions (e.g. dye and masonry). The problem is you don’t have enough land to construct these buildings to produce the goods you need to advance the research. And you also need available population, which can only be expanded by building more residences on land that you don’t have. See where I’m going with this? The game is ok at best, unless you have real money you want to sink into it. As a passive Smartphone gamer, it is very rare that I spend any real money on a game. And when I do it is only $0.99. I plan to delete the game.
Not very fun to play
by Beherenow77 on 2020/05/25 12:13
I keep looking for a good city building game, something fun like The Simpsons: Tapped Out and I was hoping this was it. But it’s not. My main issues are that when you are just starting the game people who have been playing for years and are way ahead of you are still allowed to attack you and plunder your city. This should only be available for people at the same level as you otherwise there is nothing you can do about it. Your army is never going to beat theirs. You also get so little in terms of land that you have to keep deleting buildings so you can build something else when you need certain goods. And the goods buildings produce so little in such a long time that you spend days and days trying to get enough to do anything. I get that this is a long play game but it’s too long for me. Just not enough to do to keep me interested. Update in response to developer: 1. Plundering would be fine if in the game it tells you about it, however, you only find out once someone does it and then you have to google what happened. 2. Even after googling Neighborhoods it is still unclear what these are, how to determine which one you are in or what the purpose is. 3. The game also doesn’t teach you about city defense, had to google that too. Too much stuff you have to google which is what makes it not fun. I never have to google how to do anything in Tapped Out, a far superior game. If you’re looking for a true city building game this is not it.
Huge Disappointment/Poorly Designed
by Jaymaxm on 2019/10/23 18:13
If you believe in playing a game that is fun, fair and enjoyable, skip this game! I started playing this game 18 months ago, only to discover some major design flaws. This game requires you to obtain blueprints towards gaining a Great Building, which provides you with different benefits. You are required to obtain 9 blueprints to build a Great Building. Often, you will get to a point where you are down to 8 of those blueprints and then start gaining multiples of the same one, where at that point you can choose to trade those multiples towards a “random chance” to obtain the one you are missing...Only problem is, the “random blueprint selector” feature rarely gives you the actual blueprint you need to finish the set of 9 required. So you end up spending days, weeks, even months of effort in saving up Forge Points to put down towards more blueprints, only to be held back over and over again by the “random blueprint trade” selection process! This “random” process really really takes a huge effort to get by, and just really makes it frustrating to say the least. Eventually you realize it’s no longer any fun to play a game that relies upon a “random selection” process. Progress is obstructed over and over...then the fun is gone...all that’s left is frustration because it inevitably just begins to feel like an entirely futile process altogether....is that really fun? Make a better choice, I wished now I had! What a waste of time!!!!
Great new updates!
by Thewurdninja on 2018/03/08 00:46
I love what they have done with the recent update. The z’s for buildings not in the process of production are now stationary making them much easier to see. I am a huge fan of the daily quests. Side quests and event quests have been greatly improved, causing me to play more frequently. Overall, I love this game. I have been playing for a few years now and have seen some ups and downs. I am looking forward to the new ages to come. The only thing I would like to see improved is will you PLEASE fix the fact that the app now asks me to sign in through Facebook every single time, even if I was just using it. It redirects me through the Facebook app and I have to click continue, okay, I accept, go, blah blah blah every time just to get to my city. It’s kind of annoying and makes it hard for me to quickly pick up productions or something while I’m not really actively playing at the moment. I find myself checking in less and less because of this added time for log in. Otherwise, great app. I would recommend it, just don’t ever click the log in through Facebook button or you are doomed to navigate through the outside app every time you log in.
The update is suppressing the game
by Its good 24227 on 2021/02/07 13:58
I used to have forge of empires awhile ago, and it really was fun back then due to pvp including everyone. Nowadays you have to research for a whole week just to unlock that feature. Why is pvp important? It’s helpful In getting resources faster and to expand the map giving you more stuff to do to expand your empire. Since I’m still in the Iron Age starting over again, I cannot attack players since most of them have not unlocked pvp yet. It is frustrating because upon visiting their city, I saw clear signs that the player opened the game and then left permanently. Attacking lower levels is unfair to active players, but most of them aren’t ever going to be active anyways. It is robbing the challenge and activity of the players that are actually playing and active. This decision is not only a huge mistake, but it also makes new players wanting to leave immediately due to being able not to do anything. I know you updated the game to make sure more people are satisfied of staying in the game, but you are actually doing the exact opposite. Unless this is fixed soon, a lot of new players will quit altogether, including me.
Another greedy game
by Ftooley77 on 2018/07/07 20:28
At first I thought it was going to be a decent game, started off with good game mechanics, then as I leveled up it didn’t take me long to discover that the have designed the game to require the heavy use of real money via in app purchases, to be able to continue playing. They limit your growth without money paid, the limit your leveling without money spent, and they limit your quest ability without spending money. At first I even fell pray and thought of if I spend a little money, then I could get over the money hump and continue on with my game. But then I quickly found out that every little aspect required in app purchases, that at no level, no quest and no point can you continue in the game with out constant money purchases. There one early on research that specifically calls for in game currency purchases with real money, just to advance to another age. I know apps that are free have some in app purchases to speed things up, that help pay for development, but this game goes beyond having them for convenience, to making the purchase a mandatory requirement to continue playing. They have an event history list, that allows higher level players to have a permanent way to attack you daily and ruin the gameplay! Update: in response to developer: highly unlikely as there are many things in the tree for diamonds, and I have yet to see any diamonds for fee in the game!
Don’t Play This Game
by madsgrace on 2019/02/24 16:45
Just don’t bother getting into it. I don’t want to stop playing because I enjoy getting through all the Ages and I’ve gotten really far....... but it’s an endless frustration. It’s so pay-to-win it’s painful. I can’t afford diamonds, so if they’re needed, I wait until I win them. The community does not respect this play style at all. I was kicked out of a guild (that claimed to be “just for fun, no requirements”) because I didn’t finish more than one level of GE every week. If you invest time and forge points into a Great Building, people sitting on thousands of FPs will swoop in and steal the top spots after you’ve chipped away at it for weeks. While these are player related problems, the bottom line is - other players who spend real world cash WILL take issue with or advantage of players who don’t. I’m far in the game and have a lot of expendable resources, but it’s not possible to advance in the community without diamonds. I’ll continue to play just because I like seeing the Ages progress over time. This is just the nature of the game, so this isn’t really me saying “change the game,” but don’t get into this game (if you want to advance in the rankings) unless you’re willing to drop some serious real world cash. Otherwise, you won’t compete with the many players who do, and it just isn’t a fun experience. So save yourself the trouble and find a different game to play.
Was Fun At First
by Faelandaea on 2019/12/24 01:54
Unfortunately, this game is designed to force you to spend real money to succeed. Mind you, on almost every game I play that has a store, I drop money because I love supporting the devs. But to me there is a difference between choosing to support at my own pace and being halted in all progress unless I pay to continue. In this case, I am at a complete standstill unless I drop cash to buy supplies. I have to weave cloth to proceed with research to get a better army. But ... catch 22 ... I need a better army to defend my cloth. It takes 2 days to make the cloth I need and before that 2 days is up that is the one resource that keeps getting plundered. This is because others can tell where your research tree is at and what you are working on and successfully block you from proceeding by pillaging your most needed resource. So, even after dropping a couple of hundred bucks into this game, I am calling it quits because even that amount of cash wasn’t enough to let me slide in and just enjoy building a city. Kind of hard to defend your resources when you need those resources to create what you need to defend them. The research tree is designed for only veteran players to make sure newer players never make it past the early Middle Ages. Back to Elvenar for me, I suppose.
Review of greatest game in the Gigiverse
by ballsdeep111784 on 2020/01/11 20:06
Forge of empires is VERY fun, and you don’t have to spend a lot of money in order to get good! (Although you can.) You create a city, town, village, empire, city-state, or whatever you want to call it, and you can create your looks, or profile picture. You can design your town - but don’t worry, there are still challenges. You can take over other empires and kingdoms, even plunder, or steal supplies, and other stuff you need from them. You can create an army, go on quests, and do all of that as you go through the ages. Forge of Empires taught me all about the ages and eras, which helped me a lot in school, getting me better grades in social studies. If you don’t like educational games - well, it doesn’t directly teach you, you just find out on your own. This game has many qualities that help you in life, and is very fun while it doesn’t directly teach you those qualities. However, it would be almost impossible to miss them. This game is by far my favorite game, and you can also create your own guild - for free! Anyone who doesn’t play is definitely missing out.
Pay a lot
by thomasjbs on 2020/12/01 04:05
This game has great graphics. It has a lot of potential and it’s great when you’re starting out. But when you hit bronze age or so, (level 3 or 4?) you begin finding that you don’t have the resources to research new skills. Although you may be able to trade for resources the barter rate is *1* resource that you want for 10 resources that you pay/build/create —> it takes four hours to create one resource and when you need 40 to advance it’s just not feasible. I’ve been trying to create / barter / obtain resources to research *one* skill for over two weeks and I’m still nowhere close. Of course you can purchase in-app resources for $4.99 but but you need to make two or three of these purchases and this is only one research topic. There are events you can participate in but cannot complete because you don’t have resources. If you like making in-app purchases two or three times per day and then three to five days a week this is the app for you. If you don’t mind waiting two days to play the game for your resources to build up -And then logging in to click on the next-two day build and then waiting for two days again and again and again -then this is a game for you, but you’re not really playing at that point you’re logging in every two days to click a button and then waiting another two days.
Great strategy game
by Bbbbbb6868 on 2021/03/19 21:29
I would love to say this game is for all ages but due to how competitive players can be parents probably need to safeguard their credit cards if kids do play because the temptation to spend money to buy game currency (diamonds) can cost big bucks. Kidding but there is truth about it being competitive. I have been playing for almost 2 years and love this game. I am astounded at the skill and detail of the design and the people who make the game possible. Game designers work behind the scenes so we players reap the rewards. From the very beginning a player must balance space, resources, team work and resist the urge to move too fast. I don’t want to write a book but seriously I love the game. I can spend hours redesigning my city to fit a new building while trying to increase my goods production, points or attack percentage. Or, working with my team (guild) to fight for points to reach a higher rank in the WORLD. I have friends from all over the world - Thailand, New Zealand, Canada, and all over the USA. So, just for fun, check it out either at the website or with the app. Listen to your favorite music and get lost in your game. Thank you Innogames for creating this wonderful game.
Welp
by cntthnkfnm on 2020/01/31 22:22
Well, it was a good game. I played up until the colonial age and i built the SoZ (people who play the game will know what I’m talking about) but i had just built that i also had the CdM, LoA, ToB, and the colosseum but right after i built the SoZ i got off the game and I tried to get on it a few hours later and the game refused to log me in. Like it just wouldn’t let me. I tried restarting the internet to see if that was the problem, nope, found out it needed an update. So I updated it like usual thinking that was the problem but it still wouldn’t work. So I tried changing the country i was in to see if that did anything, it made me login with my apple id but then none of the worlds i had (i had 2) showed up. And it’s a real bummer because i was doing really good also, getting 30 FPs every day, was in a really great guild and i had a group chat with all the friends i have on there and it was really helpful because everyone helped one another it seemed like people had everything you needed to make a GB. But the game crashed or something, I probably will play it again but not for a real long time. Edit: like a day after i made this review the game fixed its self soo yeah good game 👌
Disappointed
by Diane Villela on 2018/12/09 16:02
This seemed like a cool game going threw the different ages I reached the Iron Age and realized creators are way too money hungry everything at some point costs diamonds I needed land to place things it costs 200 diamonds each for the first two which I felt was a little too much but I gave it the benefit of he doubt! I have to admit I spend money on this game but it didn’t last long at all. When I reached Iron Age I got two more slots available using diamonds and only one as free. I thought okay the first two were 200 diamonds each I’ll just purchase 400 diamonds and I’ll get these two nope I was wrong they charged 400 diamonds for one expansion. I’m going back to my other games because I wasted money time and patients on this game and I truely regret it. I have spent money in a games but if the Iron Age is 400 diamonds for one slot next Age is 800 diamonds and so on and so forth. You can’t really get a head without spending real money. I down right hate creators that purposely abuse their creation that could be cool but isn’t because they prefer making money but exploiting people just so people get a head in a game! I feel for it once but not anymore. If I could give 0 stars I would! I’m a person who doesn’t mind a few dollars here or there but I refuse to waste anymore time money or patients on creators and game who take advantage of people to this extreme.
Unfair PVP
by Mac222nite on 2020/02/09 04:11
I did a review in game but just in case it doesn’t show up, avoid this game unless you like being ripped off. Player vs Player has ruined the game. Every time you get ahead a little another player takes your goods. If you have a lot of money you can BUY your way through the game or if you’re a thief you can take what you want. In my mind, the developers and thieves should be arrested in the real world. I spent REAL MONEY to get these goods and to progress in the game and they were taken from me by someone with a city and army so big that only a few players could defend themselves against. Before anyone thinks I’m a whiner, don’t worry I left and deleted my cities. Update: I deleted the city that was being attacked daily and I’m trying one more time. I like this game but this is FOE’s last chance with me. If it doesn’t get better I will leave for good. I don’t mind attacks if they are FAIR!! Higher level players should only be allowed to attack other players at the same level. Otherwise it’s robbery. INNO you said you hoped I would come back. Ok..here I am. We shall see if you truly want a fair game or not. Make PVP fair or you will lose more players than just me. Read your reviews. I’m not the only one who feels this way and I’m NOT going to BUY my way to the top.
Fun for hardcore strategy players
by free2play_player on 2020/11/25 01:45
I played this game twice once a few years ago and the other I started 6 months ago. I have to say the modern incarnation of the game is amazing and the older version bot ad much. The problem with game is that it is meant for higher leveled and more hardcore strategy game players. This means that most players that find the game bad is because it is to complicated. This is not to say that not investing every time and moment means it is not fun but looking for helpful guilds will allow you to learn all the game mechanics and advice. When I started playing the game I hopped around different guilds and until I found an active one that was not only helpful but required little to nothing to be part of. To this day I’m still in this guild and even though I’m in the top percentile of my server I still find the game not that taxing in time requirements. In fact I find myself playing the game to much which I have to say if played enough the game becomes very addictive. Overall this game is fair, rewards you, and I have yet to spend a SINGLE dollar playing it.
Forge of Empires
by janete24 on 2018/02/21 18:07
Game is boring. It’s basically a point/click/waiting game. And you do a lot of waiting to the point where you ask yourself “Am I even playing a game?” There’s no daily freebie for logging in to play. Scenery, landscapes, color in the game are dull. They do have what they call “incidents”, which are but randomly throughout the game, but you have to look everywhere, and look hard because they blend in too much with the rest of the scenery. What gets me most is you can’t expand your territory, and when you can’t expand you can’t put up buildings, and when you can’t put up buildings you can’t build, almost like you’re stuck in a corner. Then there are the challenges. You can’t fulfill them because you don’t have the buildings to build, and the reason you don’t have the buildings to build is because you don’t have the ability to expand your territory. These challenges should only be at the level you’re at, or with the resources you currently have to fulfill them. So again you’re in a corner and you can’t do anything. And the production buildings. Come on! I can only make one product at a time and it takes way too long. If the programmers are reading this “How do you earn diamonds and medals to expand your territory?”
Good but the wait though makes the game boring
by mr.l 64000 on 2019/07/17 05:51
Well it’s what you expect from a free app game. The game is just a point and wait game seriously it takes so long just to build a house even in the Bronze Age. Don’t get me started on the happiness gimmick I mean you already waste enough money and supplies on houses, supply buildings, and good buildings and how about just waste it on culture buildings and decorations. I mean I get but like I said before you already waste your money on houses and supply buildings. What I hate the most is forge points I mean why is the maximum limit 10 I mean I looked in different ages and it takes hundreds of forge points. Yeah you can buy them but whenever you buy a forge point but it gets more expensive when you buy them. Why does it take an hour just to one, there just should have been no forge points. In conclusion Forge of Empires is a good game but there cultural buildings should have been to increase supply buildings more and it should have applied to good buildings too.
Frustrating more than fun
by venuscrash24 on 2018/10/08 11:11
I really thought this would be a fun game. At first it is, but quickly turns to frustration. You never have enough room for things you need, and buildings don’t turn to better arrange. Their excuse for that is that it makes it more of a puzzle and that they would have to do too much work to make them turn. Everything starts to take so much to upgrade that you get stuck waiting for resources way too early on, and people do not offer fair trades at all. I finally drew the line at a requirement of many diamonds (200 I think), which you would have to buy, to do the next building upgrade. Some things that would make it better are actually upgrading buildings instead of selling and rebuilding every time, and an adjustment of how much is needed versus how much is offered in the game. This isn’t a game you can continuously play, you have to put it down-seems counter intuitive to me if you are trying to make a hit game... Also, last note, the fighting is fun but it take 2 hours to ‘recruit’ new fighters, and can only do one at a time for each type, so takes a day to build enough troops! One fight a day is no fun! I hope they put more work in and recalibrate, the idea is fun, just too frustrating.
What’s this “fight tactical battles” picture? & antiques dealer repeating junk?
by DySync on 2019/10/19 13:21
Am I missing this part of the game that on my city there could be a battle on the edges as though I’m defending my city? I have seen many other games doing this to a huge degree but does that make it even slightly reasonable or okay? Well I guess we all have to decide the line of being and speaking lies. Lol One more thing: Why so much repetition in the antiques dealer? There are thousands of possible items end yet never an event upgrade for any main event buildings. But there is a menagerie of the day... it’s a good place to showcase the awesome stuff that can be gained in game play- create want in newer players and greed in Kings of Empires. Or repeat the same stuff we are currently selling and bore the lot. For an app I play then any other ever I would put 5 stars for holding my attention and making a game enjoyable. Not to mention beautiful. There are times the great ideas that created UI and UX are an amazing spectacle and when that’s the case(like FOE) please stick the top with simple decisions. Basically keep your finger prints off my faberge eggs! Happy forging!
I don’t know about this game...
by unknown.................!! on 2019/04/16 18:22
I’m not trying to judge I just started playing this game but I think it’s expensive and it’s kind of boring to me and what can you even do you might say yea it’s just a noob but seriously after the tutorial what can you do produce stuff and that’s it I was lost but I have been reading the other reviews and haven’t even Contributed ever but I believe in the reviews and it says you need fixed the game and then we can everything expensive because it is why would you need an expansion for 200 diamonds also I don’t like how I need to Tutorial. They waste your diamonds for you I think you should have a choice because if you’re going to make everything so expensive with diamonds why should you spend 100 for ya And as this and as he said diamonds are very important so you just want people to pay for more some some people don’t want to waste money on a game so I think you should waste the money for them not money not even many diamonds but the damage in the game I like money but as I was saying I don’t know about the game because well it’s expensive it’s kind of boring and what can you do just Produce things I don’t mean maybe you should give it more than just one little tweak
Just another “free” game
by Blackhawk1019 on 2018/08/30 06:18
Like all the other 1 star reviews I have encountered all the same problems with this game. It does start off really good, but as you progress the game get almost impossible to do anything because you are moved to new neighborhoods with players at levels much higher the yours. If you don’t spend money to buy diamonds your progression will be unbearably long. I get attacked over 6 times a day by players at higher levels and they steal you production items. I asked the developer about how I keep getting attacked by higher level players and got a generic response of how I should collect my items right when they are done with production. Somehow player know to attack within 5 minutes of production being completed. Fair warning that this game is far from free even though the developer says it is possible with out spending money. Getting attacked constantly is frustrating enough to make you want to purchase the upgrade. Note to developer no need to write a response because I know how to contact you and your answer is already noted above. I know I can purchase city shields to stop the attacks. Now let’s see what kind of generic response the developer can come up with as to how they can solve all the above problems.
Broken endgame
by houseofpwncakes on 2019/05/02 13:53
Promising game with great music, graphics, and design. Frequent events with fun rewards that are manageable if you're a free-to-play player. The devs have clearly worked very hard on their product. Unfortunately, once you reach the contemporary era the game is completely unplayable for free players. PvP is forced on and there's no shield for getting raided; I have screenshots of 10 raids in a single day on my base (and each raid allows a player to loot your production buildings, preventing you from looting them yourself). Pay players will frequently attack you with armies that are 200% boosted by premium bases, using one troop 3-4 ages ahead of yours and 7 rogues (poorly balanced unit that automatically copies another unit in your army when it's attacked). Basically, there's no defense for free players against getting raided back to back with armies that are ages ahead of theirs and three times as boosted until all of their buildings are unusable. This happened basically every day for a month or two until I had to stop playing. Looking forward to a potential fix in the future because the game was otherwise designed with a lot of love.
Free to download, not free to play
by Mr. Coral on 2019/05/16 06:22
I have played this game a month or so and I always wait a bit to write a review. I was forced to write this review because this game ai has decided I needed to write something great about this game or give feedback. So to be transparent, this is what I submitted in my ticket to support.// This game is not free to play, maybe free to download but definitely not free to play. This game has many trips and falls all designed to get you to purchase diamonds in order to advance (let’s be realistic, its pay to play). This is not a strategy game, this is a build game of which I now feel hostage to do bi-daily maintenance on in order to not be plundered by much bigger opponents. Also, I cannot even do or complete daily events without being forced to use diamonds. I also cannot battle without using diamonds to replenish troops loses, unless I prefer to wait a tremendous amount of time to so-called play for free. I honestly believe this game is boring! I have played many mobile games through the years and this is the worst game I have played. I don’t see mayself playing this game much longer. Also, do I really need to have 10 plus accounts just to play 1 solid account and be able to advance in this game? I don’t think I do.
Frustrating on mobile
by Bhjsbbah on 2017/10/24 16:15
I like games of patience. This one is promising but when I started, my story quests were hindered by an internal error and by the time support fixed it, I was way ahead of the story quests and would have to do them after I already did them, which wastes time and resources. My name and profile seems to be that of an old man. I asked them to change it because I couldn't (it's the first quest) due to the internal error. It wasn't fixed. **update** I'm not stuck on the first quest. I'm stuck on the other quests because by the time the first quest was fixed, I was way ahead and have to basically redo everything I've already done. Like... Build 3 Stilt Houses. Why would I build 3 stilt houses when my population lives in tile roof houses and chalets? I lack the space and my population can't go down as they are all being used for production. Waste of time and resources. Makes it frustrating. I am, however, stuck in progressing in research because of a bug. I've researched and unlocked militia, but the game is saying I need to research it to progress. It also didn't give me the soldier barracks that came with completing the block. That's a serious bug or glitch. I did contact support. We'll see if they are any help.
HORRIBLE SUPPORT
by grideraaron on 2018/02/27 15:41
The game is a ton of fun while you can play it. I got banned because they claimed my kids were feeding me and avoiding the rest of the game. I have 5 kids who can verify different; we made in game trades for goods, blueprints, and forge points that were fair and according to the rules. They donated about 5k forge points and i gave them about 1k forge points back along with over 10k goods for a bunch of different ages. The rules are not based on actual facts, but rather the opinion of any given moderator at any given time. This is unfortunate, but ohh well. I would have given 1 star because of support, but the game is really fun. Update: well as expected there was no change even after they wasted my time. They should have just dropped it with my post. My kids wanted to keep playing but they wont unban them as they stated they are “only in iron age and it wont take them long to get back.” 3 of them had arcs and a few terrace farms. I don’t think the support people know how to play their own game. It took my kids 3-6months to get all the bps and it took me another month to donate fps to get the goods for them. The support is laughable at best. Lowering my stars to 1 for the way they treated my kids and will have my 2 older leave a review.
Worth the effort and it takes some effort
by Orofinogal on 2019/06/12 15:03
This game seems rather boring at first and is often hard to understand what is expected. Some information is available on the forums but to a newbie that can all be Greek! Once available find a good supportive guild! That is the most important thing. They should help you with your forge points, great buildings and answer questions. There is much more to this game than meets the eye so be patient! I also enjoy being able to have 2 or later 3 worlds and towns. Also visit other players towns often and see what they are doing. This will give you insight and you can ask your guild members questions about what you see. Great game but I will say that in order to progress you will need to purchase diamonds occasionally. I figure it is pretty cheap entertainment. Use the diamonds for play and don’t spend them unless you really consider the importance of your purchase. Then they are a good investment. Have fun!
Better reconstruction mechanics required
by T-Man135 on 2020/02/29 10:59
Adore the game I probably log on about 4 times a day, loving the saint patties days event, it’s really helping me move up quickly in the game!! wich I love I’ve had the game for like 4 days and I’m already on the Iron Age! not certain if that’s fast or not. I just thought it would’ve taken longer but I’m pleased to say it didn’t. but to the point of the review, I gave the game 3 stars in hopes it would catch an eye of a developer. Obviously, the way your empire is arranged is very important to the game I learned that day one. But to move buildings around to try to change your empire for the better it takes a significant amount of space, a feature to where you can move all your buildings into your inventory and start from scratch on your empire would really help the player move buildings to where I want them to be an overall redesign his or her empire for the better! And I’m my own opinion make the game 5 stars worth of fun! If this gets a response from a developer not only will it prove that y’all listen to players but I will change my rating :)
Fun to play
by Davidk8203 on 2019/06/30 04:56
I have played for months now. I have a sweet city and pvp all the time. I haven't spent a dime on the game and I have over 4k diamonds to spend if needed. People are whiners. This game is a lot of fun whether you want to build your city, fight others or chat. They have regular special events to get special buildings for questing. I only installed it to get a freebie on another game. That game was deleted months ago and I still play this. Joining a guild is easy and super beneficial. Try it. You will get hooked. P.S. People who think you must buy diamonds to play are not giving the game a chance and should probably find a different game. Maybe one with no challenge or strategy. People who spend diamonds will still get beat up by higher players because they are newbs. Slow down and develop your city and you won’t get attacked successfully as often. Ignore the trolls saying you have to pay to play. Try it for a week and find out for yourself.
Amazing game!!
by Güblermeister on 2017/09/26 12:59
All of these people on here complaining about it being slow or too hard. Why don't you go find a game you can fly through and stop trying to get them to ruin a great game. I've been playing it for months. It's challenging, has a lot of things to spend your time on, not to mention it's a blast to strategize what to do and what not to do with your city or what to spend your forge points on. I personally love that there are things like the great buildings that are next to impossible to get. It makes it hard and I like it that way. Oh and about it being expensive or having to spend diamonds. I call BS I haven't spent diamonds since the ones you get at the beginning of the game and I am all the way to the colonial age and working towards my 3rd great building. Please don't listen to the idiots that want the game nerfed. It's the reason amazing games like WOW have been ruined.
7 Year Veteran - originally a 5 and now a 2
by 7 Year Player on 2019/02/25 09:42
I have been playing for 7 years and considering discontinuing due to the increasing expense needed to play the game. The #1 trick they use to consume yourDiamonds is the cost to auto click and eliminate 100 plus moves. No big deal to not spend 5 diamonds sale on and click your self but by the time your in the Arctic phase you have to click 100s of time. even if you do pay it still makes you click 100 times because the auto clicks is too simple and does ask a few basic questions that would allow them to do more of the work for you. There seems to be also fewer player than in the past so there is less available trades. Another reason to finally call It a day. I think they have gotten 100s of dollars over 7 years most in the past year. I don’t mind spending some money but I would have expected logical improvements to like I described above in return for my funds. As one of your most loyal clients I am guessing I will not get a response or taken seriously but I am likely a conduit for many other original players who are thinking of bailing.
Ok game until
by Rich121070 on 2018/11/17 11:51
The game is somewhat fun until you get to a certain age and are attacked and looted incessantly by man children who won’t level because they’re so large they can attacked anyone and plunder them without fear of retailing. The game caters to this. There is no requirement to level up so these people sit there and make themselves rich and you miserable on a daily basis and the developers love this. It’s like you high school football team having to play multiple NFL teams everyday. And their wonderful response to this will be “you can get a shield” which means you have to spend over a week collecting “visits” to your tavern from 80 or more friends on a daily basis for the pleasure of being left alone for a few days. Or pick up your loot on time which turns you into an anxiety ridden mess setting alarms and stopping whatever the thing you’re doing in real life because they allow some over grown a holes with no lives of their own to constantly feed off you instead of enforcing them to level and take on people at their own level. This is a constant theme of all their games and I’m extremely tired of them.
Don’t waste your time
by Lou Pru on 2019/12/19 12:44
I’ve played this game for a number of years. When I first started 6 years ago, the developers were very generous in giving rewards. For example when you motivated or polished another player using an example of 50 friends, you would acquire a BP (blue print) for a GB (Great Building) approximately 10 +- a day. Now with 80 friends I’m lucky if I acquire 1-2 a day. Other rewards too numerous to list here, have become have been reduced to segments. For example, a wishing well which can randomly produce free diamonds, goods, coins and supplies use to be rewarded as a complete building. Now you are offered a segment of a wishing well meaning you must acquire 15 fragments of a wishing well to build one complete wishing well. One must realize that the game is FREE but if you wish to advance through the different eras and be competitive you will purchase diamonds. One needs to pay the salaries of the developers and companies don’t start a business to loose money in the long run. The game is significantly unbalanced to players in the the low eras: Bronze Age, Iron Age, Middle Ages etc it’s a very slow advancing game in real time. My suggestion is to look elsewhere.
Free to play?
by Brian281993 on 2019/08/31 16:23
While sure the game is technically free to play it’s almost very very slow if you play that way to the point were it’s not even fun. I get the game is a marathon but I also understand what the developers are trying to do what is make the game so slow and boring so that users use real cash to make the game fun. Sadly all mobile games and even more and more console and pc games are going this is way what is sad. Personally I don’t mind paying money to play a game considering all my games on my pc cost money and I even refer the old ways instead of this “freemium model” of continuous payments that get you barely anywhere but the fact that micro transactions in this game don’t get you much is ridiculous. I’ve seen buildings in the game cost as much as $40 when you convert everything especially with the new bidding system. You could easy send $200 on the game and it would barely get you anywhere. The amount of greed is too greet. If you can justify why a pixelated building is worth $40 when I can purchase an entire computer game on steam and be done and just play the game without micro transactions to make it remotely fun then I’m heading back to pc.
Good idea! And immersive world. But too much fishing and too many bugs
by Ditte81iowa on 2019/12/20 20:48
The idea of this game is fun, and I’ll likely keep playing it. I would not recommend it, though. It has bugs, and a lot of them. First: it says you will get diamonds, if you invite friends. This isn’t True! We’ve tried it twice now, and all you get is a long nose, and you don’t even get to be in the same world (even if you follow message link). There are other kinks. Like: now I’m stuck on a winter event star quest, that isn’t acknowledging infiltrating provinces, and the so called negotiations are just an attempt to get the players to spend diamonds (which cost money). Loads of elements to the game like that. Get you stuck. Won’t let you get unstuck without diamonds, and loads of them. I get they made the game to make money, but it is a shame. Maybe it’ll be a better game with bug fixing? I like that new layers keep being added as you progress. However, the element of aggression I could have done without (player vs player, where random people can attack your city).
What is going on with the game?
by Ms. I Love to Read on 2019/03/20 18:29
It seems like ever since there was an update this last time, the game doesn’t want to load, and there is nothing wrong with my internet connection since I can play my other games with NO issues, only this one is giving me trouble now. I have shops trying to produce but I can get to hem before I’m raided and lose what I’m trying to produce...for over an hour I’ve been waiting for the game to load...all I see are animated leaves falling on the screen, but NO game, so I finally had to give up...is someone going to fix this and how can I get my goods back?! It’s been a couple of days now since I first wrote this post, and I’m back because I’m still having issues...I’m trying to do one of them challenges to earn military people from my current timeframe...snipers, etc., but I can’t even get back into my game. I can access my other games, it not this one, and I’ve rebooted twice and still nothing....is someone working on this issue??
Thoughts
by By Miguel7656! on 2018/12/02 05:00
I have been pondering thoughts that may improve the game. I hope you it may help. I was thinking on how to improve the GE quality. I've been reading and the forum says our goal for Expeditions is to protect our territory in our land and expand our territory. Well why don't you guys do that. Every time a guild gets 1st place you should award them with land but they can only get 1st like 15 times (Don't want to make it to easy to get land), 2nd place winners gets goods from other guilds who lost below 5th place, 3rd place winners will receive an army legionnaire from their period, 4th place winners get supplies and 5th place winners get a nice pat on the back by getting gold. I know the places are only up to three but I think there should really be five. There are other ideas but I think this is a major one to discuss and if u can, may u make it so players maay have a 90 degree turning ratio for their buildings. Thanx 😋
PAYWALL ALERT
by TopKupo on 2018/05/26 20:08
I finally decided to be patient with this game seeing as how it actually takes time and lots of patience to build your own little empire. Don’t get me wrong, it’s really fun and surprisingly social. Other players are helpful and there are some okay benefits from helping others; the biggest being willful reciprocation from other players. However, after almost two months, I have advanced my empire to the Early Middle Ages where I have noticed a huge paywall at the BEGINNING of the research tree. I have never seen such a blatant paywall after spending so much time on a mobile game where most of my playtime was fair and free. I don’t plan on buying diamonds (premium currency), so I’d either have to farm them through expeditions or occurrences, which barely give you more than 10 diamonds each and rarely drop them, or quit playing to avoid wasting more time on a paywall that’s gonna hold me back from advancing a substantial part of the game. If you were gonna hit players with a paywall, do it sooner. This review was supposed to be four stars, but that paywall frustrated me entirely.
Good but constantly lags
by Mlew85 on 2020/04/05 13:22
I’ve been playing this game for a couple of years and am in the artic future. I could have got here faster if I paid but to date, I haven’t spent a dime. I would leave it 5 stars but over the past several months, the game has been lagging. It’s not my connection as all my other apps are fine. Examples of lagging: you attack the opponent in battle and wait between 30-60 seconds for the game to register. Another example: when collecting coins and supplies, I can collect everything from my buildings and then wait for another 15-20 seconds before it catches up. I keep getting the spinning wheel as everything catches up and it really slows gameplay and destroys the user experience. It would be 5 stars otherwise. Update Apr 5, 2020: game is still slow and it feels slower than it was. Now it’s crashing at least one a day. I’m the Egypt world, I battle and then it crashes. In my city, it still takes almost a minute to catch up from collecting supplies and coins. It’s super frustrating. This happens regardless of being on WiFi or cell data. My other games/apps are fine, it’s just Forge of Empires.
Fun to a certain Point.....then walk away
by Ranger lover! on 2020/03/10 01:39
Love the concept building the cities throughout various ages. Made it to the modern ages. I agree with others that there is a certain point where you must purchase diamonds in order to sufficiently advance. For the developer who stated they made it through the entire game without purchasing diamonds, i imagine it’s because you know the rules. I understand thats where the app makes money. Two items that seem to be irritating and have now caused me to NEVER buy any more diamonds 1) plundered by user which mysteriously happens after diamond purchases 2) poorly documented instructions with regards to rules, advancing to levels, defeating armies, etc. that is only available through Wiki. Come on guys! Move instructions within the app. Flesh them out to where they’re actually valuable rather than a sentence or two as is the case with the majority of them. It’s like a 7th grader documented it for extra credit. Take pride in the game. It’s fun but needs to be fine tuned
Split the time!
by Restoring Data... on 2018/04/17 03:07
This is basically a point/click/waiting game. It does teach you patience, I think. But it is annoying you need to wait for a while. 8 hours is a long time just to produce coins. You can collect it only two times in just one day. That's not a lot. Two Days is just a frustration.😴. Some or Most people like me don't have that kind of time. I mean seriously. One day is still not a good option. 4 hours for one single good!?!? (Not including bonuses) Really?!? I mind just exploded. 🤯. For bonuses that will be worth it though. Although I think 30= 1 day. 20= 10-12. (Can't tell). The rest are fine for bonuses. Anyway. Training troops also take kinda forever. Just one troop! Wow... You should split the time in half for like all of the wait times in the game. (Building not included, I'm fine with the building) Aid takes forever. I'm impatient when it comes to aid. Like seriously. 24hrs?!?! Not really worth he wait. 8 hrs is a pretty good one for Aid. I agree on some of the wait times like the Town Hall. 24hr is good to me but I'm not not for other people. Forge of Empires wait time should be split in half or lower, which basically with all the current wait time you will feel like your not even playing the game. Other than that, FOE is a good game. Just split the wait time into two or lower. Thank you for reading my review on his game!
Needs more diversity
by Jayline87 on 2018/02/16 13:23
I just went to change my profile pic in the game and noticed that out of 170 characters there are only 9 black ones- 3 male, 6 female. You need to add more options for players with black skin other than black knight, black man with a turban and football player. I can imagine how black people feel when they go to pick a profile pic and its just an endless sea of white characters. Aside from that I love playing this game. Unlike other games of its kind, there’s so much to do that you never really get to a point where you’re done growing and it becomes repetitive. I also really love the social aspect of it to. You can have your own city, but you can help out others and others can help you so that you benefit and joining a group or guild is great because you’re helping each other out further and working as a team while you build your own city. There are always quests and challenges so you’re never going to get bored.
Time = $
by UnicornStud33 on 2017/10/05 22:17
This is a great game. Easy to understand, develop strategy, solo or guild play, you can make your way through the ages with ease. The basic components of farming and combat mixed with resources is par for the course. The interesting add to this game is the notable persons we all know through our ages, like Gandhi, Marilyn Monroe, DaVinci, etc... There are quests to complete to attain an avitar and rewards along the way. I'd say good for social, educational, strategic minds. The fundamentals are there for competitive drive as well. I'm down to blaze and play this game in tandem with others that I am fond of. You can spend money to develop your community faster, but it's not required. Kudos to the development team. You have a great gem here. The music is cool sometimes...but does have some much needed room to improve. Also, I feel more opportunities to win diamonds/rare buildings would inspire me to invest more time on the game....talking: giveaways. Bravo!
Great but frustrating!

I played this a while back and was absolutely obsessed with it. It’s an incredibly addicting game. My account got deleted because I was inactive for a couple months. So I had to redownload the app and start a new file. Frustrating, but I took on the challenge to dive right in with the knowledge I gained from my first experience. Now, I’m working hard to get back to my previous progress. However, I’m extremely frustrated with the fact that it takes hours to gain goods and produce supplies, and I continue to get my hard work stolen by plunderers. It wasn’t like this before. I literally get my hard earned goods stolen constantly (every day, 3-5 times) by randoms. It’s like I’m playing for nothing?? I can’t get ahead. People continuously basically bully me and as hard as I try to rebuttal, I can get nowhere. If there’s any advice on this subject, I would appreciate it. Other than this, the game is so great. I just wish there was some better tips or advice on how to defend myself against this.
Pretty neat game.

I’ve only been playing for about 24 hours or so. I’ll update after a week or so of playing but so far. I’m enjoying this game. Don’t look at it as a pay to win bc honestly, what mobile games aren’t? Just sit back and relax, and enjoy the ride. It’s normal when it comes to the building but still different than Clash of Clans or other base simulator games. I like that you can actually strategize battles and it’s even on a honeycomb battlefield! I personally enjoy honeycomb battlefields and happy to see this game has it. Think Fire Emblem. And if you haven’t played Fire Emblem, you’re missing out. Especially if you don’t at least give this game a try. I’m looking forward to progressing through the ages regardless of the time it may take and even considering becoming a volunteer for them. With that said, hope you give this game a try with an open mind and patience.
Long term strategy game
by Grand High Witch 111 on 2021/01/15 15:59
This is kind of an odd game. Despite what some of the one and two star reviews say you do not have to buy diamonds to play. As a matter of fact the game is more fun if you don’t. But (and this is a big but) you have to be an incredibly patient player. This is not the kind of game you can beat in 36 hours and then move to the next game on your list, as a matter of fact this game technically has no end. I have been playing it for over a year and I am still in the Late Middle Ages. This is the ultimate strategy game. It is also a community game which is usually not my thing. I am not usually a big fan of group games but I like this because I build my own world but belong to a “guild” and yes some of them do have rules that change over time and many will kick you out if you don’t abide by them. So find a guild that suits your playing style and play along because this actually is a fun game once you figure out you don’t need to buy diamonds to have a good time
Facebook Problem
by tekarakatz123 on 2019/08/28 13:41
You need to remove the ability to link to Facebook or make it so if players who do it that it truly does create a real account. Jumping threw hoops to fix a game when I am a new player only for months to end up with a glitched game even you can’t fix was not a fun experience. I ended up giving up after five months even though I loved the game because you kept finding a new problem each time and you were never even able to register my account when you tried several times. Each time I was asked the same questions and I answered the same. No support could fix my account but many tried. Removed game since it is broken. Why play a broken account even the developer can’t fix. Update to your response: It is not worth contacting support again they said it can’t be fixed and stoped responding a few days ago. If I knew in the beginning of April of 2019 what I know now I could have just just made a new game and not wasted my money on the broken one when I first joined. Customer support is horrible and all I want to do is help fix this amazing game I fell in love with.
Interesting Game...But Enjoyable
by Prof IP on 2018/01/26 22:28
I enjoy the game to advance critical think in balances finances and sacrifices, and just get away for the drudgeries of the working day to manufacturer a virtual world! There are a few areas that might be enhancements. 1) Incentives to visit my Tavern (Happy Hour) 2) The ability to advance technology faster in any given age, such as genius or mad scientist to help advance your game during the particular era 3) More variety in avatars that advance as you advance in your game 4) The price of certain tools, such as Forge Points, increase much to fast for the era in which you are working. 5) A more interactive function allowing one to barter goods and services. Not seeing the benefit of polishing, while being paid by those that are polishing. 6) Would like more control of Empire Defenses...cannot discern what level of defenses are in place, especially after you fortify you city that would PVP to continuously breach. Frustrating in not understand how that can be prevented even though there is very little discernible damage, aside for looting. 7) Would like a countdown clock on the delivery of goods from your Great Building. 8) Tavern Occupancy Meter tends to stall or become stuck 9) Medals continue to be a mystery in terms of count needed for expansion 10) Would prefer to pay for in-Apps purchases using gift cards or via a separate Games Store, when possible! Otherwise, still a fan of the Game!

Nothing but Spending
by Arron Lei on 2021/04/15 23:01
No any challenges if you want to spend money. No skill, very simple , you can get any level if you spend enough money. Literally it’s that kind of game for dumb riches.
Nothing but a scam
by Mdawg7575 on 2021/04/14 14:55
This game will steal your money and black your account. I wouldn’t recommend this game. It’s full of racist comments and inno allows it to occur. Inno will take your money then ban your account. I’m currently disputing a charge with my credit card. Inno is not a good game.
FIX THIS
by I HATE DA ADS on 2021/04/13 16:08
So me and my housemate play together a lot, and we really like the game. BUT. I just tried contributing a single forge point to flip their building and it said that you can’t contribute to someone with the same internet connection. I get that someone could try to cheat that way, but seriously?? There are loads of people who use the same connection who aren’t cheating, and are just trying to play the game. Again, I get that people could cheat like that, but it really takes away from the game. I won’t be able to help them move their buildings up, and they won’t be able to help me on mine. The only reason I’m not rating this five stars is because of that. Please fix it.
Indecisive developers
by Sabes1313 on 2021/04/13 10:42
I have been playing for 5 years or so. Spent the last 3 years developing my chateau to play an unorthodox but effective style of play. A change was instituted to limit the number of cycled quests, which is the whole purpose of the chateau. So I’ve spent the last 3 years developing a building within the parameters of the game... and they decided to just erase what I’ve done in that time. Complete lack of consideration for players who have invested so much in this building. They need to revert this change or allow players to transfer investments from chateau to other buildings. Update: I’ve put in a reasonable request to transfer points from my chateau to another building and they denied me. Don’t waste your time playing this game. They change the rules on a whim and clearly don’t care about their players.
Ossified game
by retail_investor on 2021/04/13 02:53
Fun for a while. But it suffers from major unexplained and bad game mechanic changes, and most of the new features and content are just uninspired or outright bad. Would have been a fun game to get into five years ago. Not anymore so much.
Slow as Molasses and its NOT PVP.
by FreeSkoolin on 2021/04/13 01:09
Don’t expect quick results. This game is like watching paint dry. If you don’t buy diamonds with real money, it’s takes longer to advance. This game is ok if you aren’t in any hurry for anything and it does not have any real fights. It’s all Ai which means you have no real control other than build up your attack percentage for success. The General Chat can get pretty raunchy too. I wouldn’t let my kids read it at times. I rate it a C+ or a low B grade. Also... PvP? That’s a joke. There is no PvP. It’s all PVE. You can’t take on some loud mouth smack talking gamer. You can’t challenge someone to a duel. It’s your NPC vs his/her NPC. May as well call it Sims. Build stuff and watch it grow.
No diamonds
by Stickman100 on 2021/04/12 21:31
Several days ago I purchased $20 worth of diamonds and as of today I still have not received them yet looking at my bank statement they already took the money out. How can I get my diamonds?
Great game BUT!
by Bjacobo4 on 2021/04/11 19:09
I love this game but as I’m progressing through it the main issue I’m seeing which is making me not want to play they game anymore is how limited the space is in your city. I would imagine that as I conquer lands the land I’m able to build on should increase. Not just talking about being able to buy squares of land but I’m talking about an increase of maximum capacity. Basically I want to be able to make my dream city. Which would include every building possible in the game and some extra space to be able to arrange it anyway I want. The space restriction really doesn’t let you build the city you want. That’s what I liked most about the game and no it’s what I hate most about it. Basically what I’m saying is when I’m a maxes or player my city should be able to fit every singe building in the game plus some extra space to organize it how the player wants please make it happen .
2000 aborts?!?
by Random717171 on 2021/04/11 02:00
Many players have spent the last couple years developing their Château Frontenac in Oder to produce goods for their guilds. Now we have wasted hundreds of thousands of Forge Points that we cannot get back.
Been Playing every Day for 3 Years Straight — AWESOME SAUCE GAME!😎
by JiMickey on 2021/04/09 05:32
Have a great time every time I play! 😃. It’s so mentally relaxing. I feel like a lot of games are rigged too much with drones that are unfair and no one can compete with and you have to spend too many diamonds to keep up. But this game feels more authentic. Like the players are all on more of an equal ground just by the nature of the way the game is set up. It requires teamwork in guilds and on 1.9 threads. It’s simplistic in nature. Easygoing. Helps just relax the mind. But still requires thought and strategy as well. Which I really like. Also, it changes often as you change your city and that keeps it quite fun too! 😃. I especially personally enjoy the st. Patrick’s day event!! I wish they had one more event similar to that one. 😏🤔 it’s stimulating! 🤩. Hope you give it a try and get a good guild and meet genuinely good people, as I have. 😊😎
Pretty lame
by kwheinrnr on 2021/04/09 01:12
This game is not worth the time that it takes to download.
Some Diamond purchases don’t provide diamonds yet you are still charged
by Marinerhawk on 2021/04/06 22:31
The game is pretty cool, addicting too. Only reason I’ve given it two stars is due to the reliability of the Diamond purchasing. Now granted, 95% of the time it works. But on three separate occasions it hasn’t. When I contacted FoE and provided them with the receipt from my Apple Card they still claimed they needed more proof. Just ridiculous. I lost roughly $300 to date. But if you’re rich I suppose it doesn’t matter...
Love it
by cheif12 i always will hel on 2021/04/05 21:05
I love you this game and I always play it and I hope you all are okay and I wonder if you can add someone to help me and have all the things that I can do like building house fighting and buying things. It using it own money and yay and bye
Waste of Time and Money
by WilliT on 2021/04/04 16:41
This is a really great game if you like staring at the screen while production of various currencies completes, or spending real money on fake diamonds. You can also get your shrubs “polished” by friends and strangers. Don’t ask. Advancement quickly grinds to a crawl after a brief initial burst to keep new players interested. After that, there’s not much to do other than wait... wait... wait... or pay. I’m waiting 7+ hour for Lumber, Marble and Stones as I write this review. Diamonds, the primary currency, are nearly impossible to obtain by normal game play, and expansion is very slow and difficult without them. Forge of Empires is just another mediocre pay-to-play building simulation game with nothing innovative to offer.
ADDICTIVE

Substandard Season Prizes
by beserius on 2021/03/27 22:46
I’ve been playing this new season and for some reason it continually awards me that worthless one hour coin rush. I’ve gotten that 7 times in a row. Wasted a lot of my money trying to get supply rushes. I believe I’ve been spending way too much (in the thousands) on this game to have to put up with this. No randomness at all in this situation.

Stop the cheating!!
by Seirtap on 2021/03/27 17:33
I have been playing FoE for 3 years. I copied the bellow from a fellow guild mate. I completely agree with the below review/statement!! This Game is the Best I have ever played... Its fun for the long haul and moving forward means you have put in the work to advance... I have no problem with Diamonds as they can help but are not necessary IMHO. It is Multi-Level Fun until recently... Some have chosen to use Macros... Scripts... Auto Clickers to gain an unfair advantage in the day to day operation of the game in particular with regard to GVG ... the #1 way to ranking. It’s easy to detect and is explicitly against rules as an unfair advantage is gained. The integrity of the game is comprised on many levels but shockingly Inno has refused to act in any way to stop or deter this action... No amount of time or Diamonds( in game currency) can overcome this advantage. Wake up Inno ! The Goose that lays the Golden Eggs for You is almost dead. If I could find I game just like this but without the institutional level cheating I would go there today... Great Game .... UNFORGIVABLE MANAGEMENT AND OVERSIGHT A Five Star Game that is content to be 2 Stars
Long Haul Game
by Debin13 on 2021/03/27 17:05
This is NOT a game to play if you want to rise quickly through the ages. But, if you want a thoughtful game where strategy and teamwork is essential, this is a GREAT game. I’ve been playing it for years and have slowly risen up through the levels. I don’t understand the people who say you have to spend money to play this game. You don’t!! But, you do need patience and sometimes you have to wait to get what you want. This is not an instant gratification game. It is an intelligent, long haul, satisfying game. Enjoy!!

Bots being used for GVG
by Boricuda on 2021/03/27 15:06
I have lost total respect for this game. I have been a player for three years and the minute they allowed guilds to use scripts for GVG now everyone is able to used bots. I lost total respect for a game that used to be so fun and competitive. You will lose many more players this way.

Missing access token

I got locked out of my game this morning, and tried all day to figure it out. We finally had to delete everything and restart it luckily it worked. I had no way to access the game for help and now I hear I’m not the only one this has happened to.
Great, slight glitch though
by ratatatcat on 2021/03/21 21:35
This game is amazing and I love it, but when I try to change my password the sight that the “change your password” link sends you to just freezes and I have to re load my device to get anything to work, other wise this game Is great.
WARNING! DO NOT DOWNLOAD!
by youaredisturbing on 2021/03/21 19:27
Read the reviews!! Just like all of the reviews say, you must spend money to get through the game!! I easily spent $100 and all of a sudden they kicked me off of my game and when I submitted a ticket for help, NO RESPONSE! I repeat! DO NOT DO NOT waste your time with this game! You will spend a fortune and get NO WHERE!!

Super Buggy on iPad
by Mapmonster on 2021/03/20 20:53
Since October I’ve worked with support to fix my game on iPad (works fine on iPhone and my iPad is only 2 years old and always up to date with latest iOS). The game crashes and freezes in all phases of the game: writing messages, fighting battles (any type), moving through quest options, collecting from buildings, aiding others, etc. Literally it will freeze on any aspect of the game that requires me to click, but it will also freeze midway through an auto battle. And it even spontaneously reboots now and then. I literally have to restart the game 50-75 times a day - for 6 months now. Inno claims there’s nothing they can do. I’ve reinstalled etc blah blah many times. I’ve followed their instructions to clear all data from the iPad, but every time I reinstall the new game knows who I am and what my pw is so all info definitely doesn’t clear from the iPad. They try to blame it on apple and say the next iOS release will fix it. Nope. That doesn’t work either. And now the latest is that when I add FPs to someone’s great building the game adds a different amount than I specify and that amount is what’s remaining on the level. So I lost about 2500 FPs in 5 minutes today. I’m about done with this game.
Problems
by , dgchv RB by on 2021/03/20 19:44
I tried to play this game and I was actually having fun, perfect for when you have nothing to do. But then it booted me out of my account. I tried to get back in but it just kept saying, “incorrect username” even though it didn’t have me put in a username. I just gave up and made a second account but then it did the same thing! If it didn’t do this to me it would definitely be a five star game. Ya like jazz?
Beware-will take away your in game purchases
by Disappointed abd Ripped Off on 2021/03/20 05:42
Beware of charges for in game purchases... I purchased a diamond expansion for 19.99, and two days later with out my permission, the game charged me for a second purchase of the same without my permission, and I did not receive any diamonds for the second purchase. When I disputed the second the purchase, the game took away (reduced my diamond count) by twice the amount of diamonds I originally purchased and actually paid for, to give me a negative diamond amount? So I paid for one, but they took away the diamond amount of two purchases! They took my money and gave me nothing, and took more away! Complete rip off!!!!
Great strategy game
by Bbbbbb6868 on 2021/03/19 21:29
I would love to say this game is for all ages but due to how competitive players can be parents probably need to safeguard their credit cards if kids do play because the temptation to spend money to buy game currency (diamonds) can cost big bucks. Kidding but there is truth about it being competitive. I have been playing for almost 2 years and love this game. I am astounded at the skill and detail of the design and the people who make the game possible. Game designers work behind the scenes so we players reap the rewards. From the very beginning a player must balance space, resources, team work and resist the urge to move too fast. I don’t want to write a book but seriously I love the game. I can spend hours redesigning my city to fit a new building while trying to increase my goods production, points or attack percentage. Or, working with my team (guild) to fight for points to reach a higher rank in the WORLD. I have friends from all over the world - Thailand, New Zealand, Canada, and all over the USA. So, just for fun, check it out either at the website or with the app. Listen to your favorite music and get lost in your game. Thank you Innogames for creating this wonderful game.
A little stingy on the diamonds, but they gotta make that money!

Stingy on diamonds but it’s a business so what can say.
Can’t log in to the game
by SaltyOverLostGems on 2021/03/18 18:54
I love my guild and playing this game, but for some reason it won’t let me log in, today. I’ve checked that the language is correct and that Facebook is connected to it, but it keeps saying “missing access token” no matter what I try. I don’t know what’s going on and I don’t want to lose my world, but I have no idea what to do.
Awful
by awafl games on 2021/03/17 13:36
This game is so bad because as somebody already said in the Bronze Age you have to use real money to advance and and not going to pay 50 bucks for something that will still not get me anywhere in the game.
Crap
by dumcrap21 on 2021/03/16 18:02
It crap that Ive been playing this game for awhile then there a new version and want me to download new one no I just going to delete and be done not a way to do things
Very fun game!

I’ve played this game on and off for about 3-4 years. I’ve seen different games that try to have the same age based progress like this game but they don’t seem as fun. This game may take some time to go through the ages but it is still a very fun game. After all Rome wasn’t built in one day! Thanks again for make such a fun game with good graphics!
Constantly crashes

Fun Game, Broken Authentication
by Kopfgeschlagen on 2021/03/15 11:19
I started playing this and got about four days in with decent progress when suddenly i was unable to log in, repeatedly getting “missing access token” on the device which i was playing. Frustrating and not worth the energy when it won’t let me actually play it.
Great game, but only in the early stage
by Yes we might on 2021/03/13 17:04
I love playing this game for the first few turns, but end up deleting it after a while. After you’ve built your city to a point, you require more and more goods you can get only through the market with other players. One technology can literally take days to get the resources for. The combat system is ridiculous. The enemy player always has the same number of units you do, and are always of superior quality. The game grinds to a halt as you need more and more goods that are harder and harder to get. I wish the game was more balanced after your initial few turns. Good game with so much potential, but after a few turns it’s no longer worth the time.
First week of gameplay
by 3675() on 2021/03/12 20:01
I’ve been playing for a week and I think this game is excellent. Many game play options to keep me busy and entertained. If I really like a game I will invest real cash to get a good starting base plus I want to show the company my appreciation in a financial way. I had an issue with a initial purchase and had to be in touch with the customer service repeatedly, they were prompt, efficient and courteous. Thank you because I know I will be playing this game for a few years at least and I now know my money was well spent.

I LOVE FOE BUT I HATE 2 THINGS
by gaianh on 2021/03/12 15:41
1. ST PAT’S EVENT WITH A PASSION! It’s long, tedious, requires WAY TOO MUCH BABYSITTING, far from clear how to play without extensive research which contains conflicting data. The event should represent the lightness and joy of Saint Patrick not the worst kind of drudgery. I don’t like the fact that you’re mixing in parts of other events AND INTEND TO DO MORE OF THAT IN THE FUTURE. It’s adding insult to injury. I may not play it at all next time if it doesn’t crucify my game in the process, which it may. CHANGE IT TO SOMETHING MORE RELATED TO THE HOLIDAY. What the heck does St. Patrick’s day have to do with boats and don’t get me started on the insanity of quintillion’s of shamrocks. My husband is Irish I’ve celebrated St Pat’s for years and I’ve been to Ireland twice. The event is nowhere near in the spirit of the joy and shared blessings of the holiday. I’m convinced the Irish people in general would find nothing that’s familiar or speaks to their love for St. Patrick. Even the Druid thing which suits some level of the history you can’t get far with. For my sake, the sake of a lot of bored players of the event, and in true honor of the spirit of St. Patrick, GET RID OF IT or MAKE IT MORE REPRESENTATIVE OF THIS JOYFUL HOLIDAY. I spent one in Ireland in a pub singing Irish songs and ditties and soaking up the true spirit of Ireland. IT WAS FAR FROM BORING! If the event doesn’t make you feel like saying “Blessed Be” or some other typical St Pat’s good words for the day, you are doing it and us an injustice.

BE CAREFUL!! I loved this app until it started charging my bank account with diamond purchases even though I didn’t approve the transactions and never even received the purchased items. There is clearly some fraudulent stuff going on here. BE CAREFUL!!
Learning and fun!
by KK2015 on 2021/03/12 08:25
While as a teacher I admit this game can be used as a teaching tool, Forge of Empires is just plain fun! Even though part of the game is to wage war and conquer territories, the violence is not on the screen but takes place behind the scenes. I haven’t had this much fun since Age of Empires. My two adult sons would have enjoyed this as teenagers. In my experience, everyone is decently polite, and sometimes we have chuckles together. Getting everything in one’s city to work in synchrony; to build buildings; to conquer territories; and to gain goods, products and money is a challenge but enormous fun. I highly recommend this game for teenagers, adults, and seniors like me. If the programming is glitchy, I have never noticed it. As far as I can tell, the app works beautifully. The developers make continual upgrades making a great experience even better.
It’s a Grind
by Steve Fosdal on 2021/03/12 02:05
If you like grinding on a game, then maybe this is for you. Also, unless you join a guild (filled with their opinions), trading happens, but just barely. At the moment, I’d give this game 0 stars, but it was fun when I first started, for sure. Just be sure to see for yourself if its a thing for you.
Fun game
by TheProphet116 on 2021/03/10 22:48
I like going back in time. And the background music is nice. It sure is a nice game to play and let time escape.

Excellent game, lots of mini games within as well, good interaction with guildmates and lots of variety and great game updates. Highly recommend. You can play 100% free, but spending real money helps enhance game.

by Jordang626 on 2021/03/08 05:40
I’m continuing to have app problems, no matter where I am my app crashes at least twice a day, not only that the new update freezes my phone. Like the app just glitches out and I can’t do a thing. What’s happening?!
Well done multi-level Strategy game
by HQA85 on 2021/03/07 23:13
The trick here is it is a slow playing game not fast paced. Battles are part of the game but not the central part. Getting your troops ready for battle with a city that can provide and be self reliant is what I like about this game. So many routes your game can take depending on your play style. Seek out a an active med to high guild. Active in teaching younger players how to grow and active in Expedition and Battle Grounds. So much for a new player to learn to play well, it is one of the best true strategy games I have played.
Hard to progress
by jackirh on 2021/03/07 22:48
Game is addicting, but it’s hard to build in limited space. Fun themed events, but once again no place to put your winnings.
Forge of empires says its racist to speak out against racism
by Hatefulhippy on 2021/03/07 02:17
I was recently banned by the forge of empires team for speaking out against a self professed white supremacist. I said nothing vulgar or profane just simply told the player and those who sheltered and defended them that there was no excuse for such behavior. Imagine my surprise when I WAS BANNED FOR BEING RACIST AND POLITICALLY INCORRECT. I was told that my speaking out against a self professed WHITE SUPREMACIST was against the rules in the game AGAINST racist behavior. The people running the forge of empires team are clearly by their actions saying they SUPPORT WHITE SUPREMACY!! DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME!!

Need real money
by Camaroman1985 on 2021/03/04 21:21

Inno supports cheaters and punishes legit players
by Pissed42 on 2021/03/04 10:58
If you’re into cheating this is the game for you. Inno would rather support cheaters using macros and scripts by penalizing legit players as opposed to actually putting forth the effort to ban the cheaters. Way to go Inno. So...Cheaters welcome. You can set up all kinds of scripts and bots without fear...the legitimate players are all shopping for a better game. New people...don’t bother. This game was already time consuming...now you HAVE to be a bot to play it or have absolutely no real life.
You broke your game...
by Dragon81heart on 2021/03/03 19:07
Just did the latest update and now it will not let me log in at all. When I try to log in a red box on the bottom of the screen appears and is all kinds of letters and numbers (I’m sure it’s code for something) Please fix

This game is ok
by tlovesmusic4321 on 2021/03/03 13:59
I enjoy playing FOE. I am not 100% sure what to do or the best way to play but since I play for fun I don’t stress about it. This game is definitely more intricate and challenging to play than simpler farming and gem type games. It seems difficult to expand land and know how to best play...
Enjoy the game, poor support
by Dallamir on 2021/03/03 13:37
The game is great if you like slower strategic game play. Don’t be in a big rush or you will just become a punching bag. I’ve spent real $$ but it’s not a big money sink if you pace it out. Been playing over a year and will keep playing.
Very interesting but slow
by 911 hacker on 2021/03/03 11:12
Personally I love this game and I’ve played it for about a year now. but there is one problem, sometimes it takes FOREVER to get the resources you need to research something. It gets a little annoying at times. other than that, the game is really fun to play if you like historical progression type games
Really greedy
by kate&coop on 2021/03/03 06:39
This takes forever to do anything and to expand your land it costs money or you have to wait like a month. They do everything they can to get your money. Not worth the time. Find a different game to play
Bots destroying the game
by Milleniadawn on 2021/03/02 14:24
Don’t waste your money on this game. Inno seems to have no desire to penalize players for using bots for unfair advantages. The bots have destroyed the integrity of this game.
Pay to play
by SeanV1 on 2021/03/02 10:49
Typical pay to play game. Lots of buildings that require real money to build (bakery for one). Lots of limits that are about getting you to buy diamonds to progress in the story. Developer will reply I am sure saying “oh no you can play entire game without spending real money”. It’s not true. Deleting game now.
Decent and needs extra side quests!
by Ancient Creator on 2021/03/01 16:41
Like an RPG or long good book: This game may take lots of time to play. Graphics are decent and if you want to advance more quicker which is optional you pay as one plays or chillax and take your time building your populace. ***Developers: Stay generous with the diamonds for game advancement! 100K in diamonds for 100 bux would be advantageous for players who enjoy your game like me who’ve been playing it for 2 years now. You’ll have repeat profits if you negotiate your sales right. Just sayin...

by papa_gyro on 2021/02/28 20:30
i was inactive in the game for a month or two due to personal reasons, when i went back into the game i had been logged out and forced back into the tutorial. Once i logged back into my own account, i had the things the tutorial game me, like the beginning of the bronze age, but none of the other achievements i had made in my account. Other than my loss of progress the game was fine.
Not fun anymore. Cheating is rampant.
by rww28 on 2021/02/28 01:37
This was a great game. But it is no fun now that people are using bots and macros to cheat. People have reported cheating to Inno for months and Inno has done nothing to stop it.

I love this game, it’s so addicting and my new favorite game. It can get a bit pricey if you purchase diamonds which helps speed up some parts of the game. It does start off a bit confusing but after I got the hang of everything I love it. They do have some tutorials which help but wish it was clearer at the beginning but all in all a great game!

Lives Up To The Hype
by Quidzark on 2021/02/18 15:50
Excellent game all around. Simple to get started, multiple strategy options, good graphics/lay-out, well designed. After playing for a couple of hours, I spent 9.99 Modest In-App purchase well worth it. Will most likely make a couple more. I paid $40-$60 for the Civ games when they came on cd’s Don’t mind shelling out $9.99 once a month or so for a game of equal quality. I look at it as an installment plan😀

Money scam
by mambaouchiwawa on 2021/02/18 04:58
If you play free it’s all good. But when you try to buy diamonds they charge your bank account and you never receive the purchased diamonds.
Just ok
by p@s2m on 2021/02/17 23:22
I played this game hoping I could just build settlements, exchange goods, do quests etc. It started of well till production of certain goods generated hardly any product and you had to wait to build your inventory. What’s messed up is when you wait to get your goods and some other player just comes in and plunders it. I am going to give this game another week or so to see if that continues to happen, if it does I’m out of here.
The best of the best!
by Cnet73 on 2021/02/17 07:36

Plundering is ruining the game
by NorCalBug on 2021/02/15 23:11
I been playing the game for about 2 months now, and used to really enjoy the game. Recently though, the joy is just being sucked out of it for me because of increased frequency of plundering, an aspect of the game I thoroughly dislike and from which I derive no pleasure, and especially by players that are so advanced that there is no earthly way I can compete. I play games to relax and enjoy, and as soon as that ceases, it’s time for me to move on. I am fast approaching that point. I wish the developers would reconsider this aspect of the game, because it caters to a tiny minority, but it ruins the fun and enjoyment for far more people than it satisfies.
Great game to play

Not getting any help from support.
by ghecrheccw on 2019/06/20 22:08
I messaged support for some help because there’s a glitch with the mass supply rushes not working for all of my supply buildings. They used to work just fine but now they only work on one out of my 4 buildings that only produce supplies. It’s very frustrating when your in an event and the things that are supposed to help you with the event don’t and then it’s worse when the people you send a message to refuse to even admit there’s an issue. They instead choose to talk to you like your stupid or lying. I don’t understand what the issue is myself there is a glitch, saying thank you for making us aware of the issue, we will work on fixing it sorry for any inconvenience or unnecessary frustration it has caused. Thank you for your patience while we fix the problem so you can keep enjoying the game. I don’t think saying something like that is to much to ask of anybody. And in my opinion is far more professional then avoiding the glitch and acting like I’m lying about it or that I don’t know what I’m talking about. What could I possibly gain from lying about a glitch and if I wasn’t 100% sure about something I would ask a question not complain.
Decent
by 🐰💕🐻💕 on 2021/02/03 14:48
FOE is a great builder style game. It has enough group activities and events to keep you interested for years. There are only two problems with the game that prevent it from being a 5 star app. 1st is the 24hr world timer on your daily resource collection. The timer makes you wait 24hrs from the time you collect to respawn those resources. For example if you are playing on your phone and want to collect your daily resources during your lunch break but someone tries to chat you up for 5 minutes you have then lost those 5 minutes because you must wait at least 24hrs to collect again. And well if this happens again and again you can see how eventually you will lose entire days worth of resource collection. Other games I have played used 20 or 23hr world timers to give players more freedom but as FOE is roughly 4yrs old at the time of writing this they clearly intend to stick with this format. 2nd as you can trade resources across the “Ages” it means you can obtain the best buildings (great buildings) at any point in the game provided you are able to farm enough expansion tiles to place them. This leaves players little incentive to move up to next age. Indeed it actually makes many features of the game harder. Which is really a shame because the art and the work in general that they put into these ages is kinda amazing.
In-Game Expansion Costs Real Money
by jayg44706 on 2019/07/25 10:01
I like games that allow me to construct kingdoms and civilizations, so I thought this game would be fun. It started out pretty fun, and my empire advanced in technology relatively quickly. However, you get to a point relatively soon (the Bronze Age, I believe) where the only way to expand buildable space is to purchase diamonds (with real money) which you then use buy land to expand on. There are very limited expansions you can use the in-game currency to purchase, even though building in-game currency happens quickly. And victory and research progress provides very little land expansion. Which brings me to a second issue that ties into the land expansion problem. In order to progress through time, you have to conduct research. This involves a combination of spending points that automatically accrue, production, and in-game coin. One concept to developing new research requires a number of different productions (e.g. dye and masonry). The problem is you don’t have enough land to construct these buildings to produce the goods you need to advance the research. And you also need available population, which can only be expanded by building more residences on land that you don’t have. See where I’m going with this? The game is ok at best, unless you have real money you want to sink into it. As a passive Smartphone gamer, it is very rare that I spend any real money on a game. And when I do it is only $0.99. I plan to delete the game.
Not very fun to play
by Beherenow77 on 2020/05/25 12:13
I keep looking for a good city building game, something fun like The Simpsons: Tapped Out and I was hoping this was it. But it’s not. My main issues are that when you are just starting the game people who have been playing for years and are way ahead of you are still allowed to attack you and plunder your city. This should only be available for people at the same level as you otherwise there is nothing you can do about it. Your army is never going to beat theirs. You also get so little in terms of land that you have to keep deleting buildings so you can build something else when you need certain goods. And the goods buildings produce so little in such a long time that you spend days and days trying to get enough to do anything. I get that this is a long play game but it’s too long for me. Just not enough to do to keep me interested. Update in response to developer: 1. Plundering would be fine if in the game it tells you about it, however, you only find out once someone does it and then you have to google what happened. 2. Even after googling Neighborhoods it is still unclear what these are, how to determine which one you are in or what the purpose is. 3. The game also doesn’t teach you about city defense, had to google that too. Too much stuff you have to google which is what makes it not fun. I never have to google how to do anything in Tapped Out, a far superior game. If you’re looking for a true city building game this is not it.
Huge Disappointment/Poorly Designed
by Jaymaxm on 2019/10/23 18:13
If you believe in playing a game that is fun, fair and enjoyable, skip this game! I started playing this game 18 months ago, only to discover some major design flaws. This game requires you to obtain blueprints towards gaining a Great Building, which provides you with different benefits. You are required to obtain 9 blueprints to build a Great Building. Often, you will get to a point where you are down to 8 of those blueprints and then start gaining multiples of the same one, where at that point you can choose to trade those multiples towards a “random chance” to obtain the one you are missing...Only problem is, the “random blueprint selector” feature rarely gives you the actual blueprint you need to finish the set of 9 required. So you end up spending days, weeks, even months of effort in saving up Forge Points to put down towards more blueprints, only to be held back over and over again by the “random blueprint trade” selection process! This “random” process really really takes a huge effort to get by, and just really makes it frustrating to say the least. Eventually you realize it’s no longer any fun to play a game that relies upon a “random selection” process. Progress is obstructed over and over...then the fun is gone...all that’s left is frustration because it inevitably just begins to feel like an entirely futile process altogether....is that really fun? Make a better choice, I wished now I had! What a waste of time!!!!
Great new updates!
by Thewurdninja on 2018/03/08 00:46
I love what they have done with the recent update. The z’s for buildings not in the process of production are now stationary making them much easier to see. I am a huge fan of the daily quests. Side quests and event quests have been greatly improved, causing me to play more frequently. Overall, I love this game. I have been playing for a few years now and have seen some ups and downs. I am looking forward to the new ages to come. The only thing I would like to see improved is will you PLEASE fix the fact that the app now asks me to sign in through Facebook every single time, even if I was just using it. It redirects me through the Facebook app and I have to click continue, okay, I accept, go, blah blah blah every time just to get to my city. It’s kind of annoying and makes it hard for me to quickly pick up productions or something while I’m not really actively playing at the moment. I find myself checking in less and less because of this added time for log in. Otherwise, great app. I would recommend it, just don’t ever click the log in through Facebook button or you are doomed to navigate through the outside app every time you log in.
The update is suppressing the game
by Its good 24227 on 2021/02/07 13:58
I used to have forge of empires awhile ago, and it really was fun back then due to pvp including everyone. Nowadays you have to research for a whole week just to unlock that feature. Why is pvp important? It’s helpful In getting resources faster and to expand the map giving you more stuff to do to expand your empire. Since I’m still in the Iron Age starting over again, I cannot attack players since most of them have not unlocked pvp yet. It is frustrating because upon visiting their city, I saw clear signs that the player opened the game and then left permanently. Attacking lower levels is unfair to active players, but most of them aren’t ever going to be active anyways. It is robbing the challenge and activity of the players that are actually playing and active. This decision is not only a huge mistake, but it also makes new players wanting to leave immediately due to being able not to do anything. I know you updated the game to make sure more people are satisfied of staying in the game, but you are actually doing the exact opposite. Unless this is fixed soon, a lot of new players will quit altogether, including me.
Another greedy game
by Ftooley77 on 2018/07/07 20:28
At first I thought it was going to be a decent game, started off with good game mechanics, then as I leveled up it didn’t take me long to discover that the have designed the game to require the heavy use of real money via in app purchases, to be able to continue playing. They limit your growth without money paid, the limit your leveling without money spent, and they limit your quest ability without spending money. At first I even fell pray and thought of if I spend a little money, then I could get over the money hump and continue on with my game. But then I quickly found out that every little aspect required in app purchases, that at no level, no quest and no point can you continue in the game with out constant money purchases. There one early on research that specifically calls for in game currency purchases with real money, just to advance to another age. I know apps that are free have some in app purchases to speed things up, that help pay for development, but this game goes beyond having them for convenience, to making the purchase a mandatory requirement to continue playing. They have an event history list, that allows higher level players to have a permanent way to attack you daily and ruin the gameplay! Update: in response to developer: highly unlikely as there are many things in the tree for diamonds, and I have yet to see any diamonds for fee in the game!
Don’t Play This Game
by madsgrace on 2019/02/24 16:45
Just don’t bother getting into it. I don’t want to stop playing because I enjoy getting through all the Ages and I’ve gotten really far....... but it’s an endless frustration. It’s so pay-to-win it’s painful. I can’t afford diamonds, so if they’re needed, I wait until I win them. The community does not respect this play style at all. I was kicked out of a guild (that claimed to be “just for fun, no requirements”) because I didn’t finish more than one level of GE every week. If you invest time and forge points into a Great Building, people sitting on thousands of FPs will swoop in and steal the top spots after you’ve chipped away at it for weeks. While these are player related problems, the bottom line is - other players who spend real world cash WILL take issue with or advantage of players who don’t. I’m far in the game and have a lot of expendable resources, but it’s not possible to advance in the community without diamonds. I’ll continue to play just because I like seeing the Ages progress over time. This is just the nature of the game, so this isn’t really me saying “change the game,” but don’t get into this game (if you want to advance in the rankings) unless you’re willing to drop some serious real world cash. Otherwise, you won’t compete with the many players who do, and it just isn’t a fun experience. So save yourself the trouble and find a different game to play.
Was Fun At First
by Faelandaea on 2019/12/24 01:54
Unfortunately, this game is designed to force you to spend real money to succeed. Mind you, on almost every game I play that has a store, I drop money because I love supporting the devs. But to me there is a difference between choosing to support at my own pace and being halted in all progress unless I pay to continue. In this case, I am at a complete standstill unless I drop cash to buy supplies. I have to weave cloth to proceed with research to get a better army. But ... catch 22 ... I need a better army to defend my cloth. It takes 2 days to make the cloth I need and before that 2 days is up that is the one resource that keeps getting plundered. This is because others can tell where your research tree is at and what you are working on and successfully block you from proceeding by pillaging your most needed resource. So, even after dropping a couple of hundred bucks into this game, I am calling it quits because even that amount of cash wasn’t enough to let me slide in and just enjoy building a city. Kind of hard to defend your resources when you need those resources to create what you need to defend them. The research tree is designed for only veteran players to make sure newer players never make it past the early Middle Ages. Back to Elvenar for me, I suppose.
Review of greatest game in the Gigiverse
by ballsdeep111784 on 2020/01/11 20:06
Forge of empires is VERY fun, and you don’t have to spend a lot of money in order to get good! (Although you can.) You create a city, town, village, empire, city-state, or whatever you want to call it, and you can create your looks, or profile picture. You can design your town - but don’t worry, there are still challenges. You can take over other empires and kingdoms, even plunder, or steal supplies, and other stuff you need from them. You can create an army, go on quests, and do all of that as you go through the ages. Forge of Empires taught me all about the ages and eras, which helped me a lot in school, getting me better grades in social studies. If you don’t like educational games - well, it doesn’t directly teach you, you just find out on your own. This game has many qualities that help you in life, and is very fun while it doesn’t directly teach you those qualities. However, it would be almost impossible to miss them. This game is by far my favorite game, and you can also create your own guild - for free! Anyone who doesn’t play is definitely missing out.
Pay a lot
by thomasjbs on 2020/12/01 04:05
This game has great graphics. It has a lot of potential and it’s great when you’re starting out. But when you hit bronze age or so, (level 3 or 4?) you begin finding that you don’t have the resources to research new skills. Although you may be able to trade for resources the barter rate is *1* resource that you want for 10 resources that you pay/build/create —> it takes four hours to create one resource and when you need 40 to advance it’s just not feasible. I’ve been trying to create / barter / obtain resources to research *one* skill for over two weeks and I’m still nowhere close. Of course you can purchase in-app resources for $4.99 but but you need to make two or three of these purchases and this is only one research topic. There are events you can participate in but cannot complete because you don’t have resources. If you like making in-app purchases two or three times per day and then three to five days a week this is the app for you. If you don’t mind waiting two days to play the game for your resources to build up -And then logging in to click on the next-two day build and then waiting for two days again and again and again -then this is a game for you, but you’re not really playing at that point you’re logging in every two days to click a button and then waiting another two days.
Great strategy game
by Bbbbbb6868 on 2021/03/19 21:29
I would love to say this game is for all ages but due to how competitive players can be parents probably need to safeguard their credit cards if kids do play because the temptation to spend money to buy game currency (diamonds) can cost big bucks. Kidding but there is truth about it being competitive. I have been playing for almost 2 years and love this game. I am astounded at the skill and detail of the design and the people who make the game possible. Game designers work behind the scenes so we players reap the rewards. From the very beginning a player must balance space, resources, team work and resist the urge to move too fast. I don’t want to write a book but seriously I love the game. I can spend hours redesigning my city to fit a new building while trying to increase my goods production, points or attack percentage. Or, working with my team (guild) to fight for points to reach a higher rank in the WORLD. I have friends from all over the world - Thailand, New Zealand, Canada, and all over the USA. So, just for fun, check it out either at the website or with the app. Listen to your favorite music and get lost in your game. Thank you Innogames for creating this wonderful game.
Welp
by cntthnkfnm on 2020/01/31 22:22
Well, it was a good game. I played up until the colonial age and i built the SoZ (people who play the game will know what I’m talking about) but i had just built that i also had the CdM, LoA, ToB, and the colosseum but right after i built the SoZ i got off the game and I tried to get on it a few hours later and the game refused to log me in. Like it just wouldn’t let me. I tried restarting the internet to see if that was the problem, nope, found out it needed an update. So I updated it like usual thinking that was the problem but it still wouldn’t work. So I tried changing the country i was in to see if that did anything, it made me login with my apple id but then none of the worlds i had (i had 2) showed up. And it’s a real bummer because i was doing really good also, getting 30 FPs every day, was in a really great guild and i had a group chat with all the friends i have on there and it was really helpful because everyone helped one another it seemed like people had everything you needed to make a GB. But the game crashed or something, I probably will play it again but not for a real long time. Edit: like a day after i made this review the game fixed its self soo yeah good game 👌
Disappointed
by Diane Villela on 2018/12/09 16:02
This seemed like a cool game going threw the different ages I reached the Iron Age and realized creators are way too money hungry everything at some point costs diamonds I needed land to place things it costs 200 diamonds each for the first two which I felt was a little too much but I gave it the benefit of he doubt! I have to admit I spend money on this game but it didn’t last long at all. When I reached Iron Age I got two more slots available using diamonds and only one as free. I thought okay the first two were 200 diamonds each I’ll just purchase 400 diamonds and I’ll get these two nope I was wrong they charged 400 diamonds for one expansion. I’m going back to my other games because I wasted money time and patients on this game and I truely regret it. I have spent money in a games but if the Iron Age is 400 diamonds for one slot next Age is 800 diamonds and so on and so forth. You can’t really get a head without spending real money. I down right hate creators that purposely abuse their creation that could be cool but isn’t because they prefer making money but exploiting people just so people get a head in a game! I feel for it once but not anymore. If I could give 0 stars I would! I’m a person who doesn’t mind a few dollars here or there but I refuse to waste anymore time money or patients on creators and game who take advantage of people to this extreme.
Unfair PVP
by Mac222nite on 2020/02/09 04:11
I did a review in game but just in case it doesn’t show up, avoid this game unless you like being ripped off. Player vs Player has ruined the game. Every time you get ahead a little another player takes your goods. If you have a lot of money you can BUY your way through the game or if you’re a thief you can take what you want. In my mind, the developers and thieves should be arrested in the real world. I spent REAL MONEY to get these goods and to progress in the game and they were taken from me by someone with a city and army so big that only a few players could defend themselves against. Before anyone thinks I’m a whiner, don’t worry I left and deleted my cities. Update: I deleted the city that was being attacked daily and I’m trying one more time. I like this game but this is FOE’s last chance with me. If it doesn’t get better I will leave for good. I don’t mind attacks if they are FAIR!! Higher level players should only be allowed to attack other players at the same level. Otherwise it’s robbery. INNO you said you hoped I would come back. Ok..here I am. We shall see if you truly want a fair game or not. Make PVP fair or you will lose more players than just me. Read your reviews. I’m not the only one who feels this way and I’m NOT going to BUY my way to the top.
Fun for hardcore strategy players
by free2play_player on 2020/11/25 01:45
I played this game twice once a few years ago and the other I started 6 months ago. I have to say the modern incarnation of the game is amazing and the older version bot ad much. The problem with game is that it is meant for higher leveled and more hardcore strategy game players. This means that most players that find the game bad is because it is to complicated. This is not to say that not investing every time and moment means it is not fun but looking for helpful guilds will allow you to learn all the game mechanics and advice. When I started playing the game I hopped around different guilds and until I found an active one that was not only helpful but required little to nothing to be part of. To this day I’m still in this guild and even though I’m in the top percentile of my server I still find the game not that taxing in time requirements. In fact I find myself playing the game to much which I have to say if played enough the game becomes very addictive. Overall this game is fair, rewards you, and I have yet to spend a SINGLE dollar playing it.
Forge of Empires
by janete24 on 2018/02/21 18:07
Game is boring. It’s basically a point/click/waiting game. And you do a lot of waiting to the point where you ask yourself “Am I even playing a game?” There’s no daily freebie for logging in to play. Scenery, landscapes, color in the game are dull. They do have what they call “incidents”, which are but randomly throughout the game, but you have to look everywhere, and look hard because they blend in too much with the rest of the scenery. What gets me most is you can’t expand your territory, and when you can’t expand you can’t put up buildings, and when you can’t put up buildings you can’t build, almost like you’re stuck in a corner. Then there are the challenges. You can’t fulfill them because you don’t have the buildings to build, and the reason you don’t have the buildings to build is because you don’t have the ability to expand your territory. These challenges should only be at the level you’re at, or with the resources you currently have to fulfill them. So again you’re in a corner and you can’t do anything. And the production buildings. Come on! I can only make one product at a time and it takes way too long. If the programmers are reading this “How do you earn diamonds and medals to expand your territory?”
Good but the wait though makes the game boring
by mr.l 64000 on 2019/07/17 05:51
Well it’s what you expect from a free app game. The game is just a point and wait game seriously it takes so long just to build a house even in the Bronze Age. Don’t get me started on the happiness gimmick I mean you already waste enough money and supplies on houses, supply buildings, and good buildings and how about just waste it on culture buildings and decorations. I mean I get but like I said before you already waste your money on houses and supply buildings. What I hate the most is forge points I mean why is the maximum limit 10 I mean I looked in different ages and it takes hundreds of forge points. Yeah you can buy them but whenever you buy a forge point but it gets more expensive when you buy them. Why does it take an hour just to one, there just should have been no forge points. In conclusion Forge of Empires is a good game but there cultural buildings should have been to increase supply buildings more and it should have applied to good buildings too.
Frustrating more than fun
by venuscrash24 on 2018/10/08 11:11
I really thought this would be a fun game. At first it is, but quickly turns to frustration. You never have enough room for things you need, and buildings don’t turn to better arrange. Their excuse for that is that it makes it more of a puzzle and that they would have to do too much work to make them turn. Everything starts to take so much to upgrade that you get stuck waiting for resources way too early on, and people do not offer fair trades at all. I finally drew the line at a requirement of many diamonds (200 I think), which you would have to buy, to do the next building upgrade. Some things that would make it better are actually upgrading buildings instead of selling and rebuilding every time, and an adjustment of how much is needed versus how much is offered in the game. This isn’t a game you can continuously play, you have to put it down-seems counter intuitive to me if you are trying to make a hit game... Also, last note, the fighting is fun but it take 2 hours to ‘recruit’ new fighters, and can only do one at a time for each type, so takes a day to build enough troops! One fight a day is no fun! I hope they put more work in and recalibrate, the idea is fun, just too frustrating.
What’s this “fight tactical battles” picture? & antiques dealer repeating junk?
by DySync on 2019/10/19 13:21
Am I missing this part of the game that on my city there could be a battle on the edges as though I’m defending my city? I have seen many other games doing this to a huge degree but does that make it even slightly reasonable or okay? Well I guess we all have to decide the line of being and speaking lies. Lol One more thing: Why so much repetition in the antiques dealer? There are thousands of possible items end yet never an event upgrade for any main event buildings. But there is a menagerie of the day... it’s a good place to showcase the awesome stuff that can be gained in game play- create want in newer players and greed in Kings of Empires. Or repeat the same stuff we are currently selling and bore the lot. For an app I play then any other ever I would put 5 stars for holding my attention and making a game enjoyable. Not to mention beautiful. There are times the great ideas that created UI and UX are an amazing spectacle and when that’s the case(like FOE) please stick the top with simple decisions. Basically keep your finger prints off my faberge eggs! Happy forging!
I don’t know about this game...
by unknown.................!! on 2019/04/16 18:22
I’m not trying to judge I just started playing this game but I think it’s expensive and it’s kind of boring to me and what can you even do you might say yea it’s just a noob but seriously after the tutorial what can you do produce stuff and that’s it I was lost but I have been reading the other reviews and haven’t even Contributed ever but I believe in the reviews and it says you need fixed the game and then we can everything expensive because it is why would you need an expansion for 200 diamonds also I don’t like how I need to Tutorial. They waste your diamonds for you I think you should have a choice because if you’re going to make everything so expensive with diamonds why should you spend 100 for ya And as this and as he said diamonds are very important so you just want people to pay for more some some people don’t want to waste money on a game so I think you should waste the money for them not money not even many diamonds but the damage in the game I like money but as I was saying I don’t know about the game because well it’s expensive it’s kind of boring and what can you do just Produce things I don’t mean maybe you should give it more than just one little tweak
Just another “free” game
by Blackhawk1019 on 2018/08/30 06:18
Like all the other 1 star reviews I have encountered all the same problems with this game. It does start off really good, but as you progress the game get almost impossible to do anything because you are moved to new neighborhoods with players at levels much higher the yours. If you don’t spend money to buy diamonds your progression will be unbearably long. I get attacked over 6 times a day by players at higher levels and they steal you production items. I asked the developer about how I keep getting attacked by higher level players and got a generic response of how I should collect my items right when they are done with production. Somehow player know to attack within 5 minutes of production being completed. Fair warning that this game is far from free even though the developer says it is possible with out spending money. Getting attacked constantly is frustrating enough to make you want to purchase the upgrade. Note to developer no need to write a response because I know how to contact you and your answer is already noted above. I know I can purchase city shields to stop the attacks. Now let’s see what kind of generic response the developer can come up with as to how they can solve all the above problems.
Broken endgame
by houseofpwncakes on 2019/05/02 13:53
Promising game with great music, graphics, and design. Frequent events with fun rewards that are manageable if you're a free-to-play player. The devs have clearly worked very hard on their product. Unfortunately, once you reach the contemporary era the game is completely unplayable for free players. PvP is forced on and there's no shield for getting raided; I have screenshots of 10 raids in a single day on my base (and each raid allows a player to loot your production buildings, preventing you from looting them yourself). Pay players will frequently attack you with armies that are 200% boosted by premium bases, using one troop 3-4 ages ahead of yours and 7 rogues (poorly balanced unit that automatically copies another unit in your army when it's attacked). Basically, there's no defense for free players against getting raided back to back with armies that are ages ahead of theirs and three times as boosted until all of their buildings are unusable. This happened basically every day for a month or two until I had to stop playing. Looking forward to a potential fix in the future because the game was otherwise designed with a lot of love.
Free to download, not free to play
by Mr. Coral on 2019/05/16 06:22
I have played this game a month or so and I always wait a bit to write a review. I was forced to write this review because this game ai has decided I needed to write something great about this game or give feedback. So to be transparent, this is what I submitted in my ticket to support.// This game is not free to play, maybe free to download but definitely not free to play. This game has many trips and falls all designed to get you to purchase diamonds in order to advance (let’s be realistic, its pay to play). This is not a strategy game, this is a build game of which I now feel hostage to do bi-daily maintenance on in order to not be plundered by much bigger opponents. Also, I cannot even do or complete daily events without being forced to use diamonds. I also cannot battle without using diamonds to replenish troops loses, unless I prefer to wait a tremendous amount of time to so-called play for free. I honestly believe this game is boring! I have played many mobile games through the years and this is the worst game I have played. I don’t see mayself playing this game much longer. Also, do I really need to have 10 plus accounts just to play 1 solid account and be able to advance in this game? I don’t think I do.
Frustrating on mobile
by Bhjsbbah on 2017/10/24 16:15
I like games of patience. This one is promising but when I started, my story quests were hindered by an internal error and by the time support fixed it, I was way ahead of the story quests and would have to do them after I already did them, which wastes time and resources. My name and profile seems to be that of an old man. I asked them to change it because I couldn't (it's the first quest) due to the internal error. It wasn't fixed. **update** I'm not stuck on the first quest. I'm stuck on the other quests because by the time the first quest was fixed, I was way ahead and have to basically redo everything I've already done. Like... Build 3 Stilt Houses. Why would I build 3 stilt houses when my population lives in tile roof houses and chalets? I lack the space and my population can't go down as they are all being used for production. Waste of time and resources. Makes it frustrating. I am, however, stuck in progressing in research because of a bug. I've researched and unlocked militia, but the game is saying I need to research it to progress. It also didn't give me the soldier barracks that came with completing the block. That's a serious bug or glitch. I did contact support. We'll see if they are any help.
HORRIBLE SUPPORT
by grideraaron on 2018/02/27 15:41
The game is a ton of fun while you can play it. I got banned because they claimed my kids were feeding me and avoiding the rest of the game. I have 5 kids who can verify different; we made in game trades for goods, blueprints, and forge points that were fair and according to the rules. They donated about 5k forge points and i gave them about 1k forge points back along with over 10k goods for a bunch of different ages. The rules are not based on actual facts, but rather the opinion of any given moderator at any given time. This is unfortunate, but ohh well. I would have given 1 star because of support, but the game is really fun. Update: well as expected there was no change even after they wasted my time. They should have just dropped it with my post. My kids wanted to keep playing but they wont unban them as they stated they are “only in iron age and it wont take them long to get back.” 3 of them had arcs and a few terrace farms. I don’t think the support people know how to play their own game. It took my kids 3-6months to get all the bps and it took me another month to donate fps to get the goods for them. The support is laughable at best. Lowering my stars to 1 for the way they treated my kids and will have my 2 older leave a review.
Worth the effort and it takes some effort
by Orofinogal on 2019/06/12 15:03
This game seems rather boring at first and is often hard to understand what is expected. Some information is available on the forums but to a newbie that can all be Greek! Once available find a good supportive guild! That is the most important thing. They should help you with your forge points, great buildings and answer questions. There is much more to this game than meets the eye so be patient! I also enjoy being able to have 2 or later 3 worlds and towns. Also visit other players towns often and see what they are doing. This will give you insight and you can ask your guild members questions about what you see. Great game but I will say that in order to progress you will need to purchase diamonds occasionally. I figure it is pretty cheap entertainment. Use the diamonds for play and don’t spend them unless you really consider the importance of your purchase. Then they are a good investment. Have fun!
Better reconstruction mechanics required
by T-Man135 on 2020/02/29 10:59
Adore the game I probably log on about 4 times a day, loving the saint patties days event, it’s really helping me move up quickly in the game!! wich I love I’ve had the game for like 4 days and I’m already on the Iron Age! not certain if that’s fast or not. I just thought it would’ve taken longer but I’m pleased to say it didn’t. but to the point of the review, I gave the game 3 stars in hopes it would catch an eye of a developer. Obviously, the way your empire is arranged is very important to the game I learned that day one. But to move buildings around to try to change your empire for the better it takes a significant amount of space, a feature to where you can move all your buildings into your inventory and start from scratch on your empire would really help the player move buildings to where I want them to be an overall redesign his or her empire for the better! And I’m my own opinion make the game 5 stars worth of fun! If this gets a response from a developer not only will it prove that y’all listen to players but I will change my rating :)
Fun to play
by Davidk8203 on 2019/06/30 04:56
I have played for months now. I have a sweet city and pvp all the time. I haven't spent a dime on the game and I have over 4k diamonds to spend if needed. People are whiners. This game is a lot of fun whether you want to build your city, fight others or chat. They have regular special events to get special buildings for questing. I only installed it to get a freebie on another game. That game was deleted months ago and I still play this. Joining a guild is easy and super beneficial. Try it. You will get hooked. P.S. People who think you must buy diamonds to play are not giving the game a chance and should probably find a different game. Maybe one with no challenge or strategy. People who spend diamonds will still get beat up by higher players because they are newbs. Slow down and develop your city and you won’t get attacked successfully as often. Ignore the trolls saying you have to pay to play. Try it for a week and find out for yourself.
Amazing game!!
by Güblermeister on 2017/09/26 12:59
All of these people on here complaining about it being slow or too hard. Why don't you go find a game you can fly through and stop trying to get them to ruin a great game. I've been playing it for months. It's challenging, has a lot of things to spend your time on, not to mention it's a blast to strategize what to do and what not to do with your city or what to spend your forge points on. I personally love that there are things like the great buildings that are next to impossible to get. It makes it hard and I like it that way. Oh and about it being expensive or having to spend diamonds. I call BS I haven't spent diamonds since the ones you get at the beginning of the game and I am all the way to the colonial age and working towards my 3rd great building. Please don't listen to the idiots that want the game nerfed. It's the reason amazing games like WOW have been ruined.
7 Year Veteran - originally a 5 and now a 2
by 7 Year Player on 2019/02/25 09:42
I have been playing for 7 years and considering discontinuing due to the increasing expense needed to play the game. The #1 trick they use to consume yourDiamonds is the cost to auto click and eliminate 100 plus moves. No big deal to not spend 5 diamonds sale on and click your self but by the time your in the Arctic phase you have to click 100s of time. even if you do pay it still makes you click 100 times because the auto clicks is too simple and does ask a few basic questions that would allow them to do more of the work for you. There seems to be also fewer player than in the past so there is less available trades. Another reason to finally call It a day. I think they have gotten 100s of dollars over 7 years most in the past year. I don’t mind spending some money but I would have expected logical improvements to like I described above in return for my funds. As one of your most loyal clients I am guessing I will not get a response or taken seriously but I am likely a conduit for many other original players who are thinking of bailing.
Ok game until
by Rich121070 on 2018/11/17 11:51
The game is somewhat fun until you get to a certain age and are attacked and looted incessantly by man children who won’t level because they’re so large they can attacked anyone and plunder them without fear of retailing. The game caters to this. There is no requirement to level up so these people sit there and make themselves rich and you miserable on a daily basis and the developers love this. It’s like you high school football team having to play multiple NFL teams everyday. And their wonderful response to this will be “you can get a shield” which means you have to spend over a week collecting “visits” to your tavern from 80 or more friends on a daily basis for the pleasure of being left alone for a few days. Or pick up your loot on time which turns you into an anxiety ridden mess setting alarms and stopping whatever the thing you’re doing in real life because they allow some over grown a holes with no lives of their own to constantly feed off you instead of enforcing them to level and take on people at their own level. This is a constant theme of all their games and I’m extremely tired of them.
Don’t waste your time
by Lou Pru on 2019/12/19 12:44
I’ve played this game for a number of years. When I first started 6 years ago, the developers were very generous in giving rewards. For example when you motivated or polished another player using an example of 50 friends, you would acquire a BP (blue print) for a GB (Great Building) approximately 10 +- a day. Now with 80 friends I’m lucky if I acquire 1-2 a day. Other rewards too numerous to list here, have become have been reduced to segments. For example, a wishing well which can randomly produce free diamonds, goods, coins and supplies use to be rewarded as a complete building. Now you are offered a segment of a wishing well meaning you must acquire 15 fragments of a wishing well to build one complete wishing well. One must realize that the game is FREE but if you wish to advance through the different eras and be competitive you will purchase diamonds. One needs to pay the salaries of the developers and companies don’t start a business to loose money in the long run. The game is significantly unbalanced to players in the the low eras: Bronze Age, Iron Age, Middle Ages etc it’s a very slow advancing game in real time. My suggestion is to look elsewhere.
Free to play?
by Brian281993 on 2019/08/31 16:23
While sure the game is technically free to play it’s almost very very slow if you play that way to the point were it’s not even fun. I get the game is a marathon but I also understand what the developers are trying to do what is make the game so slow and boring so that users use real cash to make the game fun. Sadly all mobile games and even more and more console and pc games are going this is way what is sad. Personally I don’t mind paying money to play a game considering all my games on my pc cost money and I even refer the old ways instead of this “freemium model” of continuous payments that get you barely anywhere but the fact that micro transactions in this game don’t get you much is ridiculous. I’ve seen buildings in the game cost as much as $40 when you convert everything especially with the new bidding system. You could easy send $200 on the game and it would barely get you anywhere. The amount of greed is too greet. If you can justify why a pixelated building is worth $40 when I can purchase an entire computer game on steam and be done and just play the game without micro transactions to make it remotely fun then I’m heading back to pc.
Good idea! And immersive world. But too much fishing and too many bugs
by Ditte81iowa on 2019/12/20 20:48
The idea of this game is fun, and I’ll likely keep playing it. I would not recommend it, though. It has bugs, and a lot of them. First: it says you will get diamonds, if you invite friends. This isn’t True! We’ve tried it twice now, and all you get is a long nose, and you don’t even get to be in the same world (even if you follow message link). There are other kinks. Like: now I’m stuck on a winter event star quest, that isn’t acknowledging infiltrating provinces, and the so called negotiations are just an attempt to get the players to spend diamonds (which cost money). Loads of elements to the game like that. Get you stuck. Won’t let you get unstuck without diamonds, and loads of them. I get they made the game to make money, but it is a shame. Maybe it’ll be a better game with bug fixing? I like that new layers keep being added as you progress. However, the element of aggression I could have done without (player vs player, where random people can attack your city).
What is going on with the game?
by Ms. I Love to Read on 2019/03/20 18:29
It seems like ever since there was an update this last time, the game doesn’t want to load, and there is nothing wrong with my internet connection since I can play my other games with NO issues, only this one is giving me trouble now. I have shops trying to produce but I can get to hem before I’m raided and lose what I’m trying to produce...for over an hour I’ve been waiting for the game to load...all I see are animated leaves falling on the screen, but NO game, so I finally had to give up...is someone going to fix this and how can I get my goods back?! It’s been a couple of days now since I first wrote this post, and I’m back because I’m still having issues...I’m trying to do one of them challenges to earn military people from my current timeframe...snipers, etc., but I can’t even get back into my game. I can access my other games, it not this one, and I’ve rebooted twice and still nothing....is someone working on this issue??
Thoughts
by By Miguel7656! on 2018/12/02 05:00
I have been pondering thoughts that may improve the game. I hope you it may help. I was thinking on how to improve the GE quality. I've been reading and the forum says our goal for Expeditions is to protect our territory in our land and expand our territory. Well why don't you guys do that. Every time a guild gets 1st place you should award them with land but they can only get 1st like 15 times (Don't want to make it to easy to get land), 2nd place winners gets goods from other guilds who lost below 5th place, 3rd place winners will receive an army legionnaire from their period, 4th place winners get supplies and 5th place winners get a nice pat on the back by getting gold. I know the places are only up to three but I think there should really be five. There are other ideas but I think this is a major one to discuss and if u can, may u make it so players maay have a 90 degree turning ratio for their buildings. Thanx 😋
PAYWALL ALERT
by TopKupo on 2018/05/26 20:08
I finally decided to be patient with this game seeing as how it actually takes time and lots of patience to build your own little empire. Don’t get me wrong, it’s really fun and surprisingly social. Other players are helpful and there are some okay benefits from helping others; the biggest being willful reciprocation from other players. However, after almost two months, I have advanced my empire to the Early Middle Ages where I have noticed a huge paywall at the BEGINNING of the research tree. I have never seen such a blatant paywall after spending so much time on a mobile game where most of my playtime was fair and free. I don’t plan on buying diamonds (premium currency), so I’d either have to farm them through expeditions or occurrences, which barely give you more than 10 diamonds each and rarely drop them, or quit playing to avoid wasting more time on a paywall that’s gonna hold me back from advancing a substantial part of the game. If you were gonna hit players with a paywall, do it sooner. This review was supposed to be four stars, but that paywall frustrated me entirely.
Good but constantly lags
by Mlew85 on 2020/04/05 13:22
I’ve been playing this game for a couple of years and am in the artic future. I could have got here faster if I paid but to date, I haven’t spent a dime. I would leave it 5 stars but over the past several months, the game has been lagging. It’s not my connection as all my other apps are fine. Examples of lagging: you attack the opponent in battle and wait between 30-60 seconds for the game to register. Another example: when collecting coins and supplies, I can collect everything from my buildings and then wait for another 15-20 seconds before it catches up. I keep getting the spinning wheel as everything catches up and it really slows gameplay and destroys the user experience. It would be 5 stars otherwise. Update Apr 5, 2020: game is still slow and it feels slower than it was. Now it’s crashing at least one a day. I’m the Egypt world, I battle and then it crashes. In my city, it still takes almost a minute to catch up from collecting supplies and coins. It’s super frustrating. This happens regardless of being on WiFi or cell data. My other games/apps are fine, it’s just Forge of Empires.
Fun to a certain Point.....then walk away
by Ranger lover! on 2020/03/10 01:39
Love the concept building the cities throughout various ages. Made it to the modern ages. I agree with others that there is a certain point where you must purchase diamonds in order to sufficiently advance. For the developer who stated they made it through the entire game without purchasing diamonds, i imagine it’s because you know the rules. I understand thats where the app makes money. Two items that seem to be irritating and have now caused me to NEVER buy any more diamonds 1) plundered by user which mysteriously happens after diamond purchases 2) poorly documented instructions with regards to rules, advancing to levels, defeating armies, etc. that is only available through Wiki. Come on guys! Move instructions within the app. Flesh them out to where they’re actually valuable rather than a sentence or two as is the case with the majority of them. It’s like a 7th grader documented it for extra credit. Take pride in the game. It’s fun but needs to be fine tuned
Split the time!
by Restoring Data... on 2018/04/17 03:07
This is basically a point/click/waiting game. It does teach you patience, I think. But it is annoying you need to wait for a while. 8 hours is a long time just to produce coins. You can collect it only two times in just one day. That's not a lot. Two Days is just a frustration.😴. Some or Most people like me don't have that kind of time. I mean seriously. One day is still not a good option. 4 hours for one single good!?!? (Not including bonuses) Really?!? I mind just exploded. 🤯. For bonuses that will be worth it though. Although I think 30= 1 day. 20= 10-12. (Can't tell). The rest are fine for bonuses. Anyway. Training troops also take kinda forever. Just one troop! Wow... You should split the time in half for like all of the wait times in the game. (Building not included, I'm fine with the building) Aid takes forever. I'm impatient when it comes to aid. Like seriously. 24hrs?!?! Not really worth he wait. 8 hrs is a pretty good one for Aid. I agree on some of the wait times like the Town Hall. 24hr is good to me but I'm not not for other people. Forge of Empires wait time should be split in half or lower, which basically with all the current wait time you will feel like your not even playing the game. Other than that, FOE is a good game. Just split the wait time into two or lower. Thank you for reading my review on his game!
Needs more diversity
by Jayline87 on 2018/02/16 13:23
I just went to change my profile pic in the game and noticed that out of 170 characters there are only 9 black ones- 3 male, 6 female. You need to add more options for players with black skin other than black knight, black man with a turban and football player. I can imagine how black people feel when they go to pick a profile pic and its just an endless sea of white characters. Aside from that I love playing this game. Unlike other games of its kind, there’s so much to do that you never really get to a point where you’re done growing and it becomes repetitive. I also really love the social aspect of it to. You can have your own city, but you can help out others and others can help you so that you benefit and joining a group or guild is great because you’re helping each other out further and working as a team while you build your own city. There are always quests and challenges so you’re never going to get bored.
Time = $
by UnicornStud33 on 2017/10/05 22:17
This is a great game. Easy to understand, develop strategy, solo or guild play, you can make your way through the ages with ease. The basic components of farming and combat mixed with resources is par for the course. The interesting add to this game is the notable persons we all know through our ages, like Gandhi, Marilyn Monroe, DaVinci, etc... There are quests to complete to attain an avitar and rewards along the way. I'd say good for social, educational, strategic minds. The fundamentals are there for competitive drive as well. I'm down to blaze and play this game in tandem with others that I am fond of. You can spend money to develop your community faster, but it's not required. Kudos to the development team. You have a great gem here. The music is cool sometimes...but does have some much needed room to improve. Also, I feel more opportunities to win diamonds/rare buildings would inspire me to invest more time on the game....talking: giveaways. Bravo!
Great but frustrating!
by moesosweet on 2017/11/01 05:44
I played this a while back and was absolutely obsessed with it. It’s an incredibly addicting game. My account got deleted because I was inactive for a couple months. So I had to redownload the app and start a new file. Frustrating, but I took on the challenge to dive right in with the knowledge I gained from my first experience. Now, I’m working hard to get back to my previous progress. However, I’m extremely frustrated with the fact that it takes hours to gain goods and produce supplies, and I continue to get my hard work stolen by plunderers. It wasn’t like this before. I literally get my hard earned goods stolen constantly (every day, 3-5 times) by randoms. It’s like I’m playing for nothing?? I can’t get ahead. People continuously basically bully me and as hard as I try to rebuttal, I can get nowhere. If there’s any advice on this subject, I would appreciate it. Other than this, the game is so great. I just wish there was some better tips or advice on how to defend myself against this.
Pretty neat game.
by Gore88 on 2018/08/12 06:01
I’ve only been playing for about 24 hours or so. I’ll update after a week or so of playing but so far. I’m enjoying this game. Don’t look at it as a pay to win bc honestly, what mobile games aren’t? Just sit back and relax, and enjoy the ride. It’s normal when it comes to the building but still different than Clash of Clans or other base simulator games. I like that you can actually strategize battles and it’s even on a honeycomb battlefield! I personally enjoy honeycomb battlefields and happy to see this game has it. Think Fire Emblem. And if you haven’t played Fire Emblem, you’re missing out. Especially if you don’t at least give this game a try. I’m looking forward to progressing through the ages regardless of the time it may take and even considering becoming a volunteer for them. With that said, hope you give this game a try with an open mind and patience.
Long term strategy game
by Grand High Witch 111 on 2021/01/15 15:59
This is kind of an odd game. Despite what some of the one and two star reviews say you do not have to buy diamonds to play. As a matter of fact the game is more fun if you don’t. But (and this is a big but) you have to be an incredibly patient player. This is not the kind of game you can beat in 36 hours and then move to the next game on your list, as a matter of fact this game technically has no end. I have been playing it for over a year and I am still in the Late Middle Ages. This is the ultimate strategy game. It is also a community game which is usually not my thing. I am not usually a big fan of group games but I like this because I build my own world but belong to a “guild” and yes some of them do have rules that change over time and many will kick you out if you don’t abide by them. So find a guild that suits your playing style and play along because this actually is a fun game once you figure out you don’t need to buy diamonds to have a good time
Facebook Problem
by tekarakatz123 on 2019/08/28 13:41
You need to remove the ability to link to Facebook or make it so if players who do it that it truly does create a real account. Jumping threw hoops to fix a game when I am a new player only for months to end up with a glitched game even you can’t fix was not a fun experience. I ended up giving up after five months even though I loved the game because you kept finding a new problem each time and you were never even able to register my account when you tried several times. Each time I was asked the same questions and I answered the same. No support could fix my account but many tried. Removed game since it is broken. Why play a broken account even the developer can’t fix. Update to your response: It is not worth contacting support again they said it can’t be fixed and stoped responding a few days ago. If I knew in the beginning of April of 2019 what I know now I could have just just made a new game and not wasted my money on the broken one when I first joined. Customer support is horrible and all I want to do is help fix this amazing game I fell in love with.
Interesting Game...But Enjoyable
by Prof IP on 2018/01/26 22:28
I enjoy the game to advance critical think in balances finances and sacrifices, and just get away for the drudgeries of the working day to manufacturer a virtual world! There are a few areas that might be enhancements. 1) Incentives to visit my Tavern (Happy Hour) 2) The ability to advance technology faster in any given age, such as genius or mad scientist to help advance your game during the particular era 3) More variety in avatars that advance as you advance in your game 4) The price of certain tools, such as Forge Points, increase much to fast for the era in which you are working. 5) A more interactive function allowing one to barter goods and services. Not seeing the benefit of polishing, while being paid by those that are polishing. 6) Would like more control of Empire Defenses...cannot discern what level of defenses are in place, especially after you fortify you city that would PVP to continuously breach. Frustrating in not understand how that can be prevented even though there is very little discernible damage, aside for looting. 7) Would like a countdown clock on the delivery of goods from your Great Building. 8) Tavern Occupancy Meter tends to stall or become stuck 9) Medals continue to be a mystery in terms of count needed for expansion 10) Would prefer to pay for in-Apps purchases using gift cards or via a separate Games Store, when possible! Otherwise, still a fan of the Game!
