Good but the wait though makes the game boring
by mr.l 64000 on 2021/10/24 16:22
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.
OMG 😉

This game is not only creative but smart, fun, and inspiring I wish in the future for updates so yeah it’s great!

Stops and does not save progress
by pgusak on 2021/10/21 21:27
I spent 2 hours reconstructing my city because the space for buildings and development is quite limited. And by the time I’ve finished I used the button ‘apply changes’, confirmed it in the additional alert box and then nothing changed.. And unfortunately there is no way to save a draft or progress, therefore the game instead of bringing relax and joy brought me only negative feelings for the whole evening because all my hard work and dedication was just cancelled by a bug :( I’m still upset and frustrated, going to delete it soon despite the fact I used to play it and liked the gameplay..
If you don’t have $15-$20 a day don’t play.
by vet player1 on 2021/10/19 18:42
The game is free to play. But to compete you need to spend at least $15 a day. If this is something you can afford to do then don’t waste your time. It’s ranked #197 now for a reason. This game used to be really good but they started changing the game to accommodate the ones spending the big bucks.
WARNING
by bjgates on 2021/10/18 17:27
Beware of the ability of an advanced playervto “ forge and plunder” your city! I played, purchased land and worked my butt offvfor 4 months and had an awesome city only to have a 5 year player plunder my city to the ground all because he could he said! He explained he prays on new players to advance his city! I DELETED MY ACCOUNT AND MOVED TO ELVENAR!! Elvenar isnt as fast moving and is harder to play but no one can destroy your city after you worked so hard on it! FOE LEAVES NEW PLAYERS AT A SEVERE DISADVANTAGE AGAINST OLDER PLAYERS WITH ADVANCED ARMYS-you can only build your army so fast and its no match possibility to a player who has played for years!!! I WILL NEVER RECCOMEND FOE TO ANYONE DUEVTO THE FORGE AND PLUNDER ABILITY!!! say bye bye to your city in one click!!!!!
Cheaters rewarded over genuine players
by Verbal97 on 2021/10/18 13:49
I used to really enjoy this game, but it’s become difficult to continue playing. For me, the kicker was nerfing the wildlife event and me not realizing this until after I spent diamonds. That being said, every recent game change has “attacked” genuine active players while macro users (i.e., cheaters) are unfazed by this. The worst part of this, is that these changes have garnered a large amount of negative feedback that has been heard, yet still ignored. Simply put, the game developers don’t care at all for their most active users. I would not recommend starting this game.
Great game!
by Mattskitchen on 2021/10/17 04:45
Was looking for a AOE type simulator, and this game delivers! Smooth, looks good, easy to navigate, just a fun game overall! Easy game to pass the time and get rewarded with building your own city and empire. Lots of fun one of the best and most fun mobile games you can buy!
Audio bug
by angrybeanpole on 2021/10/17 02:01
I have the music turned off because I’m not a psychopath, but if I have a timer on, and it goes off while I’m playing, I have to use the home button to switch to the timer app, otherwise if I turn it off in game, the game music will turn back on. So I have to go back to settings and double tap on the music toggle so it turns “back on” and off again. Please fix. 3 stars because the tutorial prompt forces you to spend diamonds that you have to spend real money to replace if you want to use them for anything other than fulfilling negotiation requirements and a single expansion plot

It’s Pay to Win
by jbcanfield77 on 2021/10/17 00:54
Ok. I am a little tired of downloading a game only to have to delete it after I paid my hard earned money, and it NEVER gets easier. What happened to the games of the past where you spent money to buy the game, and you could find cheat codes to make life easier? Age of Empires. There was a code you could enter where they had swords, and you entered the fight with lasers. What happened to that? THAT is what I want in a game. NO learning required. NO skill required. NO CHALLENGE. That’s what I need. A game that is calming for someone with high anxiety, and who is results driven. Why can’t I have that?
Simply great
by richcole99 on 2021/10/16 06:43
This game is hella fun. A lot of things you can do, whether trading goods, fighting battles, building buildings or, my favorite, rearranging your city. It must have economics lessons in it due to the various currencies in the game - diamonds, coins, supplies, goods, silver, etc. Diamonds are purchasable with real money; they can accelerate the game but you can also play quite well without them. This game counsels patience as you have to wait 24 hours to collect payouts from the best buildings (“Great Buildings”). It rewards you for helping other players, and they in turn help you and are rewarded. The periodic events are usually fun and always cost too much, whether that’s too much of your own currencies (see above) or diamonds. Small quibble, but note it can be addictive and, as I believe most of these games are, it is designed to be so. Overall, this game is extremely well-realized and has a devoted fan base. It’s a garden that if you tend daily will provide you a harvest of fun. Start your journey in the Stone Age today …
Blueprint Bug
by AvalordKing5698 on 2021/10/16 05:07
I enjoy playing this game, and would likely give it five stars, except for one major bug. Many blueprints I collect don’t get counted. I find them, or get them in the antiques dealer and it will record the purchase, but not the blueprints. This is my only issue.
I am Tired of being Bullied
by Betty@01 on 2021/10/16 04:11
Don’t waste your time , unless you want to spend a lot of money. They honor bullies and people who spent lots of cash . Even though they monitor the game they won’t help you . I have been bullied and bullied in the game , I quit once to retiurn months later and still being bullied by same people. I am tired of playing only to have people three , four even ten times larger than me taking my resources to grow. Enough is enough .
1 star
by KingTitan1 on 2021/10/15 14:02
This game is severely taking a turn for the worst. Constant lag issues, GBG is so severely flawed it isn’t even funny. Two guilds can dominate the map and fight for free all day. The delays in buying extra turns and buying FP are ridiculous. Inno seems to put more stock into fixing things that aren’t broken then actually working on things that need to be overhauled like GBG & GVG.

This game is fantastic if you are willing to strategize long-term.
by Vixzeus the Conqueror on 2021/10/13 17:33
I see a lot of complaints in these reviews about how this game operates. From the blueprint obtaining, to waiting for the daily collection, to spending money for diamonds to progress. I want to make it clear that the people complaining about these things just don’t understand how to think long term for a game. First of all for everyone complaining about needing diamonds to progress I have to say have some patience for heaven’s sake. I’m ranked second on one of the servers (will for sure be first next guild battles season) and I do buy diamonds. However I only buy a very specific sale that comes up randomly. Those diamonds are used for specific purposes that involve helping my guild and my own city. I’ve NEVER used diamonds for progression because using diamonds for research, forge points, goods, etc is absolutely worthless! You are throwing money into the fire there. And that’s the problem is people start the game and because they don’t understand how it all works in the long run they think the only way the developers want them to play is by buying tons of diamonds to progress. You can do that but you’d be an idiot to do so. A huge waste. You need to progress to the point that you can join a guild and your guild mates will help you far more than anything. Players give away thousands of diamonds worth of goods and fp to help other players… and it barely affects them. That’s because Inno makes the cost of rushing through the game with diamonds VERY expensive. I personally believe this is on purpose to promote players to actually work on their city. You can’t pay to win in this game. Drop tens of thousands to use diamonds to reach the latest age and you will have no idea what you’re doing. I only use diamonds to get extra turns in negotiations when needed (10 diamonds a turn) to instantly complete a seige camp in GBG (50 diamonds each). I only use large amounts when an event comes out with a building that I think is worth the investment. I have yet to experience an event where you cannot finish the event building. If you complete all the quests and log in once a day then you will complete the building. This game is fantastic and I thoroughly enjoy it but if you expect to not have to work your way to the top then you’re not going to enjoy it. Forge on.
Purchases not fulfilled
by WRONGED AGAIN on 2021/10/13 01:30
I just spent $99 for the bonus diamond package! I got a message back that my purchase was successful, but never received my 26000 diamonds. I am still at 951 diamonds! THIS IS NOT THE FIRST TIME THIS HAS HAPPENED. I HAVE BEEN FEEDING THIS GAME FOR OVER 4 YEARS. PLEASE MAKE THIS RIGHT IMMEDIATELY JAMES THE CRAFTY
Good Game
by good game 243 on 2021/10/12 17:13
Good game overall. One suggestion make a aid/tavern all button so you don’t have to go to everyone in the friends list.
Scam
by J199023 on 2021/10/10 06:28
They say everything is free when that is a straight lie. The top 1% in the current event get exclusive rewards. The top 1% is diamond (real money) users. So how is that not pay to win? It is literally impossible to keep up with the top 1% without using diamonds. Stop lying….
System lag
by mrc1945 on 2021/10/09 21:47
There isa terrible lag often in the Inno app. Also. When applying FPS to a great building one must keep going in and out of the building in order for everyone’s added pints. You gave us a couple of nice features but took away some. Can you fix that please. It causes members to add too many forge points because the system hesitates too long to show updated points. This requires everyone to have to go in andoutofgreat buildings. Please address this issue asap! Otherwise this is a funn app I have been on for about five years.
Fun at first and then…
by GooglyEyesGamer1177 on 2021/10/07 21:23
This game when I started was fun but after a while it got boring so I stopped playing but when I finally got on it again it deleted all of my progress and all of my things I worked hard for. I only got to the Iron Age and it took too long. This is why you shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover.
Recent updates have ruined aspects of the game
by Jessica_1155 on 2021/10/07 16:28
Guild battle grounds is quite literally one of the best features of this game. Once it was introduced it change the game completely and while over almost 3 yrs there have been a lot of ups and downs with how inno is changing GBG the most disappointing is the latest update. The new target and stop signs have ruined something that wasnt broken in the least. Now the flags are covered by this ungodly large hand and you cant see a competitor hitting. With the opd flag you could see flashes easily letting them get a head start on a sector without notice. Also this update and the last have made aspects of the game that used to run smoothly just janky and frustrating. Buying buildings in GBG now you get lag and get scrolled back to top of the list making you accidentally waste goods on somety you didnt want to buy. In a race this is going to slow things down taking 10sec to build camps can literally lose a race for you. The previous update buying fp with coin and medals in GE was ruined. Used to be able to click click click fast and be done. Now there is lag in between purchases. Seem the new changes inno are making are doing nothing but destroying a game that was fine the way it was. Some aspects dont need to be fiddled with...plain and simple
A little slow but good
by leaf20200 on 2021/10/07 01:08
I really like this game.But I would not get this game if you are not patient.I do like this game though it is a game that you can get on do sum stuff and leave too but you can spread your land and do a lot of fun stuff on it as well.I recommend this game to most people
New block buttons too big
by Anange on 2021/10/06 14:27
The new update for iOS has changed the small round icons for building, trading, going to the map etc are now big square blocks that take up way to much screen real estate making it hard to see things behind them . Outside of that, game play is really really slow. Click a few buttons, then wait till things are complete, 5 mins to over 2 days… then click a few more buttons and wait again. Things need to move a little faster.
Buttons are too big!
by Fobby1980 on 2021/10/06 14:26
With the previous update, you made everything smaller. I guess the reason you changed everything back was due to players voicing their collective displeasure. But did you? I can tell you right now the 2 menu buttons and quest icons are too big now. They’re taking up a large part of the screen. Inno, why couldn’t you strike a happy medium with this latest update?
Storage
by Albazev on 2021/10/05 08:29
Wonderful game only problem I have is storage until they put free storage in I won’t spend any time or money on the game
I hate this game

Forge of empires not worth it
by Fllpper (gamertag) on 2021/10/03 16:31
This used to be a smooth running app. Now constant crashes, senseless updates makes the experience aggravating to the point of violence. Skip this for your sanity!
Totally incompetent programmers!
by Fed-up FOE addict on 2021/10/01 05:23
This is an outstanding game concept totally ruined by the fact that the developers and programmers are grossly incompetent. You cannot play this game for even one day without the game freezing or exiting to login half a dozen times. And these events are compounded by the failure of the software to back up to before the programming error. No, that would be too much to ask of the incompetent developers and programmers at Inno. Instead, wherever you were in the game becomes your endpoint, but the game finishes the episode you are in, so you lose. Period. You lose game resources, you lose battles you were winning, you lose your fighting resources, and you lose time, so you may miss a large fraction of the entire day’s rewards. It is so frustrating that I quit every week. It is such a shame, because the game - if it actually worked - is a truly great fun, and addicting game. But the problems, which they keeping making over and over without learning from their mistakes, make you want to throw your phone or computer out of your 44th floor window.
Awesome game
by Helshira on 2021/09/29 20:09
Been playing for years now. Guild is great I’m in. Which helps in leveling great buildings. I also like the new look it has with recent update. Never had any bugs either on iPad. TY for a great game.

It’s the game that never ends
by Level 113 bored on 2021/09/25 23:55
After 10 years of playing as I was reaching the end, they just keep adding and adding. HEY GUYS, games are supposed to come to an end. The “prizes” they offer in all the quests are crappy and mostly useless. This game has become a “buy diamonds to advance” but they're allowed to claim this is a “free” game. Over the last 2 years, I’ve scaled my playing time back, because it’s just gotten to the point of redundancy.
Great game one problem
by naik5210 on 2021/09/25 12:37
Great game but you need to be really patient with it. It will take years to get really high, unless you use money/diamonds. if you are a patient person this game is great 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼😊😊😊😊😢😢

Amazing everything
by scorpion is the best on 2021/09/24 18:38
First off the game is amazing and has so much detail on everything, they also have the history correct with everything. I had a problem with the game because I accidentally did something I didn’t mean to and I contacted the support team and I got it fixed the same day, amazing service. Best game ever.
Great game but lots of lag.
by Minecfafter on 2021/09/23 20:32
This is a great game but lately the game has been very laggy and after the most recent update all the icons that display things such as how many coins, supplies, diamonds, forge points, population and level of happiness you have are way too small and hard to see now and that is something I dislike. Please fix the lag problem and please return the size of all the icons to the previous size or at least add a setting the allows players to make the icons bigger and easier to see. Otherwise this is a great game.
Latest update fail

Forge of Empire
by Mustangsallygt08 on 2021/09/21 14:41
If you like playing a progressive game then this is the game to play. One secret to this game is to take your time through each level and make sure you have gotten all you can out of each level before you move forward. This is not a race game and if you race through this game it will hurt you in higher levels. I enjoy playing this game and it is a whole lot better when you are in a great guild that is friendly and helpful like the guild I have joined and enjoy being a member of Blue Moon. Moonies till the end!!
Lots of fun

by ch3ap-o on 2021/09/18 15:10
Progresses at an ok pace. Enjoy all the events and ability to trade for goods. I do wish there were ways of earning more diamonds or something that they were only needed to speed things along as that is a limiting factor in some functionality and may result in my losing interest at some point.

Rise of cultures vastly superior to this
by Typh3rJ on 2021/09/12 02:33
I played forge for 2 weeks and it just was a grind… can’t rotate buildings and just too hard to shuffle everything with the limited space. Found rise of cultures and it’s the same basic concept but game mechanics are so much more user friendly. Don’t have to hop on the game every 5 minutes to get the most gold, it collects it for you while you’re not playing. No paths to worry about and buildings rotate

Racquet of hackers illegal game play
by inno cheats on 2021/09/04 13:14
INNO has a serious problem with cheating in Noarsil world. An absolute disgrace and all out embarrassment. To the integrity and INNO ability to stop scripts and macros and other enhanced cheating tools. What’s worse is that all the brilliant minds at INNO choose to ignore or just to stupid to put safeties in place to prevent cheating. Do something about the run away cheating players from Legends of Mirth and Warcadia. INNO needs to look into this issue. INNO YOU HAVE CHEATERS.

Building locks
by bdun285 on 2021/09/03 14:42
Forcing us to keep event buildings we don’t want is stupid. What is the point of the antique shop if we can’t use it when it we want? Some event buildings just aren’t that helpful to progressing in the game and if I want to trade them I should be able to instead of them taking space in my inventory. Like at least let us delete them.

Problem with a hacker
by stendersan on 2021/09/02 19:04
Woke up one morning and it showed I had earned 100 forge points. Couldn’t understand why. Looked at my inventory and only had 30 forge points. 200 forge points disappeared, plus 70 of the 100 I had supposedly earned. Later it showed that I had put the forge points on someone’s Great Building. They can’t see or figure it out. Game is okay for awhile, but as in life, someone has to find a way to ruin it for everyone.

Broken Zoom, Mistreatment of Mobile Users
by Vilnius Vilkas on 2021/09/01 02:57
In many ways, a good game, but serious problems: 1. Zoom ranges from zoomed in to very zoomed in. Zooming out to view one’s whole city doesn’t work. That might almost make sense on a phone, but on an iPad it’s idiotic. One should be able to zoom out and view one’s whole city. 2. The game is setup to severely disadvantage mobile users. The browser version includes features not included in mobile (GvG for example) that ensure mobile users cannot compete with browser users.
Great game betrayed by the developer.
by DCNY125 on 2021/09/01 02:16
It’s a terribly clever game that is entirely undone by Inno’s plain refusal to enforce rules against players cheating. Players who use multiple accounts to push resources to their main account, guilds who use alt accounts to gain advantages in guild vs guild, players who use cash outside the game to buy accounts and resources in the game….all permitted by Inno. You will not be playing on a level playing field so if you do opt to play, keep your wallet closed. It’s a screaming shame - they created a brilliant game and fumbled it in the details. UPDATE: The developer responded and I appreciate it. However, the advice to contact support to resolve the matter is worthless. Have escalated the problem well past support to no avail. Cheating is permitted in Forge of Empire - you can use alts, push accounts, bots, scripts…they do not care at all.
Glitchy
by mas4489 on 2021/08/31 21:05
Other users are friendly, the game is ok, support is terrible. Had used resources for a 4 hr attack bonus, game glitched really bad. Lost troops and resources and all support said was sorry. The game was still glitchy 2 days after which makes it hard to complete battles, events and quests. Update as of 8/31: Support still not willing to make it right but commented for me to get with support

Better than the rest, but that’s not exactly impressive…..
by Mindthefox on 2021/08/30 16:22
It’s nice to see a version of this game that actually gives you challenges and obstacles to overcome instead of just trying to force you to buy their free-mium add-ons. With that being said, they should do a better job of exposing players to tactics and the diverse playing experience that’s available. After six months of playing I think I finally figured out how to build stilt houses and buy property jk but seriously
Great game for history

Bots and scripts killed this game
by Yay, free stuff on 2021/08/29 12:42
Forge of Empires has reached its end of life, do not download. The entire game has been overrun with cheaters using bots and scripts to exploit the game and ruin it. Complaints fall on deaf ears; they know that this is happening and refuse to take any action. Casual play, special events, and any kind of advancement requires you to pay for diamonds. Any new content that has been recently released, have been thoughtless, repetitive and uncreative rewrites of the existing game. Inno is scraping the bottom of the barrel with fancy commercials in the hopes of luring in unsuspecting new players to donate their pound of flesh to this geriatric cash cow. Dont waste your time on this one, it’s too late. Call your broker and short the parent company Modern Times Group (MTG), taking advantage of paying customers is the only thing keeping Innogames GmbH alive.
Terrible support
by frustrated1!! on 2021/08/28 21:13
The game is great when Inno doesn’t continuously screw it up with updates. Every time they patch the game something screws up. It’s gotten so bad lately the game is no longer enjoyable.
Suddenly unstable

This newest version has a stability issue. Keeps quitting and kicking me out
Really fun game
by Rufunzio on 2021/08/28 15:16
This game has kept me interested for way longer than I ever expected. As soon as you think you’ve got it figured out, there’s a whole new level you learn about. Spending money on the game is not necessary, but it does help speed things along, so I do make in-app purchases when they offer deals. But all told, I’ve spent less on this game than I would have buying the other games I would have paid for in this time.
Booted

Bad lagging
by JuJeeMD on 2021/08/28 13:36
Battlegrounds is a huge part of the game and there are terrible lag issues to the point it’s unplayable, Inno says not to submit tickets and the lag continues. They do updates and it makes things worse. People spend a ton of time and money on the game Inno needs to fix this. Seasoned players quitting over it.
Whacking out

Good, but…
by GinaJulius on 2021/08/27 22:50
I think there should be other ways to acquire the forge coins, takes too long to get the amount you need when the game tells you to research stuff, but you’ve already used them doing the other things it told you to do.
Nice game but…

Scripts
by Geoff Hill Elevator Musac on 2021/08/22 14:34
Inno Games needs to improve their script detection technologies. It was a problem in GvG and now it’s a problem in GbG. A certain guild in a certain world now has members who were suspected of using scripts (bots) in a powerful GvG guild. This guild went from mediocre to extremely powerful overnight in GbG and we’ve all watched them take sectors in 10-15 seconds flat. It’s impossible to take a sector that fast without cheating. Inno, please take honesty seriously. This game is not fun or worth spending money when we all know the cheaters don’t get punished

Attacking problem
by DranzerM on 2021/08/15 15:48
Players that are 3 or more ages above you can still attack you. Some players stick around in Iron Age, just to farm Bronze Age players that just got to the Iron Age. The little help from shuffling neighborhoods or friends tavern protection does NOT freaking help !!! You are still a farm who has been in the Iron Age for many years !!!!
Clever, complex game
by Dread Pirate Gryphon on 2021/08/14 08:31
There’s so much here to learn and discover! Lots of clever strategy and interaction with other players. I don’t spend any money on diamonds and find it completely unnecessary. Reviewers complaining that it’s expensive are just not taking advantage of the game’s possibilities, especially through guild alliances. Hang in there and learn from longer term players!
Can’t put it down
by Bear2b on 2021/08/10 04:00
I’ve built an empire in three different cities, and connected with players from each city. The best help in the game is from the people you meet that can help you build great cities. There will be in game purchases (you can’t resist) that help you get great rewards from monthly quests. If you don’t spend any $$$ advancement will be slow. The game is fun, challenging and I can’t stop playing. King Atticus11
Can’t play the game
by 🤘🏼✊🏼🙌🏼 on 2021/08/06 18:12
When I go to open the game it automatically shuts down , if I click it a few more times it just opens loads and freezes my whole phone up. Had it on my phone for 4 hours before it started glitching . Haven’t played it since . Deleted it and re-downloaded it and still didn’t fix the issue . Did the update and still didn’t fix the issue.

I almost never pay for in game up grades. It seems like cheating to me when you are supposed to earn the up grades by playing correctly. But thats only my opinion.
🤠amazing game
by Gibby48413 on 2021/08/06 04:27
I think this simple add on should be added: visit other players settlements / colonies. And a BIG bug is that if you tie on guild expedition but your guild is in the second-last placement they don’t get the rewards. And the statue of honor selection kit fragments needed to at least 50. Otherwise a great game. And if you play the game (U.S) select world East-Nagach and join the guild YoOPeRs ♻️ ✌️peace out BTW FoE is a completely FREE game.

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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 👌
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.
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.
Recent updates have ruined aspects of the game
by Jessica_1155 on 2021/10/07 16:28
Guild battle grounds is quite literally one of the best features of this game. Once it was introduced it change the game completely and while over almost 3 yrs there have been a lot of ups and downs with how inno is changing GBG the most disappointing is the latest update. The new target and stop signs have ruined something that wasnt broken in the least. Now the flags are covered by this ungodly large hand and you cant see a competitor hitting. With the opd flag you could see flashes easily letting them get a head start on a sector without notice. Also this update and the last have made aspects of the game that used to run smoothly just janky and frustrating. Buying buildings in GBG now you get lag and get scrolled back to top of the list making you accidentally waste goods on somety you didnt want to buy. In a race this is going to slow things down taking 10sec to build camps can literally lose a race for you. The previous update buying fp with coin and medals in GE was ruined. Used to be able to click click click fast and be done. Now there is lag in between purchases. Seem the new changes inno are making are doing nothing but destroying a game that was fine the way it was. Some aspects dont need to be fiddled with...plain and simple
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?”
All players beware, inno doesn’t care about helping you
by joseph A the magnificient on 2019/02/15 22:12
I have played this game for over two years and found it to be very entertaining, until recently my ritual flames were glitching and covering up other buildings. I decided to delete them all to make space for more valuable buildings. I went to delete one that was covering my level 68 arc, and since I clicked on the ritual flame graphic I assumed I was on the flame so checked the box and deleted my arc instead. All inno would do was give me a set of blue prints and the goods to rebuild it, even though their glitched caused this to happen, and cost me 58 sets up prints, thousands of fps, and countless hours spent leveling it. All I asked was for inno to make me whole by giving the 58 sets of prints back and the forge points to make my arc level 68 again because this was caused by their software, and all they cared about was themselves and not their customer. So all beware that if you need support or help from inno, they won’t give it unless it is convenient for them, players happiness be damned.
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.
Simply great
by richcole99 on 2021/10/16 06:43
This game is hella fun. A lot of things you can do, whether trading goods, fighting battles, building buildings or, my favorite, rearranging your city. It must have economics lessons in it due to the various currencies in the game - diamonds, coins, supplies, goods, silver, etc. Diamonds are purchasable with real money; they can accelerate the game but you can also play quite well without them. This game counsels patience as you have to wait 24 hours to collect payouts from the best buildings (“Great Buildings”). It rewards you for helping other players, and they in turn help you and are rewarded. The periodic events are usually fun and always cost too much, whether that’s too much of your own currencies (see above) or diamonds. Small quibble, but note it can be addictive and, as I believe most of these games are, it is designed to be so. Overall, this game is extremely well-realized and has a devoted fan base. It’s a garden that if you tend daily will provide you a harvest of fun. Start your journey in the Stone Age today …
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.
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.
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 😋
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.
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.
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??
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
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!
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.
Get it fixed. - pass the buck - review worse. Not better.
by Kelly Gilhespie on 2019/05/09 22:16
Below is the first time I reviewed FoE. These are my changes in 19 hours. Forge of Empires just wants to pass the buck. Unfortunately, it’s my buck they’re passing. I’m pretty sure that the FoE customer support believes it is a perfect game. How come MY MONEY is pending payment to Apple in MY bank? How come the payments I made to FoE is pending in Apple? How come FoE screenshot says ‘purchase successful” but I never get my purchases anymore? At least during the special events. I purchased this morning just fine. Got my purchase too. What changed? My bank holds the money in pending either till it clears or 7 days, whichever comes first. My theory? Something is wrong in the State of Forge of Empires. Every time I PURCHASE diamonds I never get them. Along with the special that goes with it. This is like the fourth help ticket I’ve opened. It’s ridiculous. I get to 1. Check my bank 2. Log in here 3. Log in there 4. Get half of my purchase. Always without the special. This doesn’t happen on any other game. I get what I buy. And the thing is, there is no sorry this happened. There is no sorry that I have to go back in and ask for the rest of my purchase. This didn’t happen a year ago when I started playing. It’s only been about the last little while. Might be time to find a new game.
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.
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.
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!
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!

Good but the wait though makes the game boring
by mr.l 64000 on 2021/10/24 16:22
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.
OMG 😉
by JBUDDY1234 on 2021/10/22 23:43
This game is not only creative but smart, fun, and inspiring I wish in the future for updates so yeah it’s great!
Latest version won’t start on iPad or iPhone

Stops and does not save progress
by pgusak on 2021/10/21 21:27
I spent 2 hours reconstructing my city because the space for buildings and development is quite limited. And by the time I’ve finished I used the button ‘apply changes’, confirmed it in the additional alert box and then nothing changed.. And unfortunately there is no way to save a draft or progress, therefore the game instead of bringing relax and joy brought me only negative feelings for the whole evening because all my hard work and dedication was just cancelled by a bug :( I’m still upset and frustrated, going to delete it soon despite the fact I used to play it and liked the gameplay..
If you don’t have $15-$20 a day don’t play.
by vet player1 on 2021/10/19 18:42
The game is free to play. But to compete you need to spend at least $15 a day. If this is something you can afford to do then don’t waste your time. It’s ranked #197 now for a reason. This game used to be really good but they started changing the game to accommodate the ones spending the big bucks.
WARNING
by bjgates on 2021/10/18 17:27
Beware of the ability of an advanced playervto “ forge and plunder” your city! I played, purchased land and worked my butt offvfor 4 months and had an awesome city only to have a 5 year player plunder my city to the ground all because he could he said! He explained he prays on new players to advance his city! I DELETED MY ACCOUNT AND MOVED TO ELVENAR!! Elvenar isnt as fast moving and is harder to play but no one can destroy your city after you worked so hard on it! FOE LEAVES NEW PLAYERS AT A SEVERE DISADVANTAGE AGAINST OLDER PLAYERS WITH ADVANCED ARMYS-you can only build your army so fast and its no match possibility to a player who has played for years!!! I WILL NEVER RECCOMEND FOE TO ANYONE DUEVTO THE FORGE AND PLUNDER ABILITY!!! say bye bye to your city in one click!!!!!
Cheaters rewarded over genuine players
by Verbal97 on 2021/10/18 13:49
I used to really enjoy this game, but it’s become difficult to continue playing. For me, the kicker was nerfing the wildlife event and me not realizing this until after I spent diamonds. That being said, every recent game change has “attacked” genuine active players while macro users (i.e., cheaters) are unfazed by this. The worst part of this, is that these changes have garnered a large amount of negative feedback that has been heard, yet still ignored. Simply put, the game developers don’t care at all for their most active users. I would not recommend starting this game.
Great game!
by Mattskitchen on 2021/10/17 04:45
Was looking for a AOE type simulator, and this game delivers! Smooth, looks good, easy to navigate, just a fun game overall! Easy game to pass the time and get rewarded with building your own city and empire. Lots of fun one of the best and most fun mobile games you can buy!
Audio bug
by angrybeanpole on 2021/10/17 02:01
I have the music turned off because I’m not a psychopath, but if I have a timer on, and it goes off while I’m playing, I have to use the home button to switch to the timer app, otherwise if I turn it off in game, the game music will turn back on. So I have to go back to settings and double tap on the music toggle so it turns “back on” and off again. Please fix. 3 stars because the tutorial prompt forces you to spend diamonds that you have to spend real money to replace if you want to use them for anything other than fulfilling negotiation requirements and a single expansion plot
Glitchy

It’s Pay to Win
by jbcanfield77 on 2021/10/17 00:54
Ok. I am a little tired of downloading a game only to have to delete it after I paid my hard earned money, and it NEVER gets easier. What happened to the games of the past where you spent money to buy the game, and you could find cheat codes to make life easier? Age of Empires. There was a code you could enter where they had swords, and you entered the fight with lasers. What happened to that? THAT is what I want in a game. NO learning required. NO skill required. NO CHALLENGE. That’s what I need. A game that is calming for someone with high anxiety, and who is results driven. Why can’t I have that?
Simply great
by richcole99 on 2021/10/16 06:43
This game is hella fun. A lot of things you can do, whether trading goods, fighting battles, building buildings or, my favorite, rearranging your city. It must have economics lessons in it due to the various currencies in the game - diamonds, coins, supplies, goods, silver, etc. Diamonds are purchasable with real money; they can accelerate the game but you can also play quite well without them. This game counsels patience as you have to wait 24 hours to collect payouts from the best buildings (“Great Buildings”). It rewards you for helping other players, and they in turn help you and are rewarded. The periodic events are usually fun and always cost too much, whether that’s too much of your own currencies (see above) or diamonds. Small quibble, but note it can be addictive and, as I believe most of these games are, it is designed to be so. Overall, this game is extremely well-realized and has a devoted fan base. It’s a garden that if you tend daily will provide you a harvest of fun. Start your journey in the Stone Age today …
Blueprint Bug
by AvalordKing5698 on 2021/10/16 05:07
I enjoy playing this game, and would likely give it five stars, except for one major bug. Many blueprints I collect don’t get counted. I find them, or get them in the antiques dealer and it will record the purchase, but not the blueprints. This is my only issue.
I am Tired of being Bullied
by Betty@01 on 2021/10/16 04:11
Don’t waste your time , unless you want to spend a lot of money. They honor bullies and people who spent lots of cash . Even though they monitor the game they won’t help you . I have been bullied and bullied in the game , I quit once to retiurn months later and still being bullied by same people. I am tired of playing only to have people three , four even ten times larger than me taking my resources to grow. Enough is enough .
1 star
by KingTitan1 on 2021/10/15 14:02
This game is severely taking a turn for the worst. Constant lag issues, GBG is so severely flawed it isn’t even funny. Two guilds can dominate the map and fight for free all day. The delays in buying extra turns and buying FP are ridiculous. Inno seems to put more stock into fixing things that aren’t broken then actually working on things that need to be overhauled like GBG & GVG.
New version

This game is fantastic if you are willing to strategize long-term.
by Vixzeus the Conqueror on 2021/10/13 17:33
I see a lot of complaints in these reviews about how this game operates. From the blueprint obtaining, to waiting for the daily collection, to spending money for diamonds to progress. I want to make it clear that the people complaining about these things just don’t understand how to think long term for a game. First of all for everyone complaining about needing diamonds to progress I have to say have some patience for heaven’s sake. I’m ranked second on one of the servers (will for sure be first next guild battles season) and I do buy diamonds. However I only buy a very specific sale that comes up randomly. Those diamonds are used for specific purposes that involve helping my guild and my own city. I’ve NEVER used diamonds for progression because using diamonds for research, forge points, goods, etc is absolutely worthless! You are throwing money into the fire there. And that’s the problem is people start the game and because they don’t understand how it all works in the long run they think the only way the developers want them to play is by buying tons of diamonds to progress. You can do that but you’d be an idiot to do so. A huge waste. You need to progress to the point that you can join a guild and your guild mates will help you far more than anything. Players give away thousands of diamonds worth of goods and fp to help other players… and it barely affects them. That’s because Inno makes the cost of rushing through the game with diamonds VERY expensive. I personally believe this is on purpose to promote players to actually work on their city. You can’t pay to win in this game. Drop tens of thousands to use diamonds to reach the latest age and you will have no idea what you’re doing. I only use diamonds to get extra turns in negotiations when needed (10 diamonds a turn) to instantly complete a seige camp in GBG (50 diamonds each). I only use large amounts when an event comes out with a building that I think is worth the investment. I have yet to experience an event where you cannot finish the event building. If you complete all the quests and log in once a day then you will complete the building. This game is fantastic and I thoroughly enjoy it but if you expect to not have to work your way to the top then you’re not going to enjoy it. Forge on.
Purchases not fulfilled
by WRONGED AGAIN on 2021/10/13 01:30
I just spent $99 for the bonus diamond package! I got a message back that my purchase was successful, but never received my 26000 diamonds. I am still at 951 diamonds! THIS IS NOT THE FIRST TIME THIS HAS HAPPENED. I HAVE BEEN FEEDING THIS GAME FOR OVER 4 YEARS. PLEASE MAKE THIS RIGHT IMMEDIATELY JAMES THE CRAFTY
Good Game
by good game 243 on 2021/10/12 17:13
Good game overall. One suggestion make a aid/tavern all button so you don’t have to go to everyone in the friends list.
Scam
by J199023 on 2021/10/10 06:28
They say everything is free when that is a straight lie. The top 1% in the current event get exclusive rewards. The top 1% is diamond (real money) users. So how is that not pay to win? It is literally impossible to keep up with the top 1% without using diamonds. Stop lying….
System lag
by mrc1945 on 2021/10/09 21:47
There isa terrible lag often in the Inno app. Also. When applying FPS to a great building one must keep going in and out of the building in order for everyone’s added pints. You gave us a couple of nice features but took away some. Can you fix that please. It causes members to add too many forge points because the system hesitates too long to show updated points. This requires everyone to have to go in andoutofgreat buildings. Please address this issue asap! Otherwise this is a funn app I have been on for about five years.
Fun at first and then…
by GooglyEyesGamer1177 on 2021/10/07 21:23
This game when I started was fun but after a while it got boring so I stopped playing but when I finally got on it again it deleted all of my progress and all of my things I worked hard for. I only got to the Iron Age and it took too long. This is why you shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover.
Recent updates have ruined aspects of the game
by Jessica_1155 on 2021/10/07 16:28
Guild battle grounds is quite literally one of the best features of this game. Once it was introduced it change the game completely and while over almost 3 yrs there have been a lot of ups and downs with how inno is changing GBG the most disappointing is the latest update. The new target and stop signs have ruined something that wasnt broken in the least. Now the flags are covered by this ungodly large hand and you cant see a competitor hitting. With the opd flag you could see flashes easily letting them get a head start on a sector without notice. Also this update and the last have made aspects of the game that used to run smoothly just janky and frustrating. Buying buildings in GBG now you get lag and get scrolled back to top of the list making you accidentally waste goods on somety you didnt want to buy. In a race this is going to slow things down taking 10sec to build camps can literally lose a race for you. The previous update buying fp with coin and medals in GE was ruined. Used to be able to click click click fast and be done. Now there is lag in between purchases. Seem the new changes inno are making are doing nothing but destroying a game that was fine the way it was. Some aspects dont need to be fiddled with...plain and simple
A little slow but good
by leaf20200 on 2021/10/07 01:08
I really like this game.But I would not get this game if you are not patient.I do like this game though it is a game that you can get on do sum stuff and leave too but you can spread your land and do a lot of fun stuff on it as well.I recommend this game to most people
New block buttons too big
by Anange on 2021/10/06 14:27
The new update for iOS has changed the small round icons for building, trading, going to the map etc are now big square blocks that take up way to much screen real estate making it hard to see things behind them . Outside of that, game play is really really slow. Click a few buttons, then wait till things are complete, 5 mins to over 2 days… then click a few more buttons and wait again. Things need to move a little faster.
Buttons are too big!
by Fobby1980 on 2021/10/06 14:26
With the previous update, you made everything smaller. I guess the reason you changed everything back was due to players voicing their collective displeasure. But did you? I can tell you right now the 2 menu buttons and quest icons are too big now. They’re taking up a large part of the screen. Inno, why couldn’t you strike a happy medium with this latest update?
Storage
by Albazev on 2021/10/05 08:29
Wonderful game only problem I have is storage until they put free storage in I won’t spend any time or money on the game
I hate this game
by mother pickle on 2021/10/03 17:13
I started playing the game and had my whole account and then I got logged out and it never asked for me to make a password or give them my email so that I could get my account back..
Forge of empires not worth it
by Fllpper (gamertag) on 2021/10/03 16:31
This used to be a smooth running app. Now constant crashes, senseless updates makes the experience aggravating to the point of violence. Skip this for your sanity!
Totally incompetent programmers!
by Fed-up FOE addict on 2021/10/01 05:23
This is an outstanding game concept totally ruined by the fact that the developers and programmers are grossly incompetent. You cannot play this game for even one day without the game freezing or exiting to login half a dozen times. And these events are compounded by the failure of the software to back up to before the programming error. No, that would be too much to ask of the incompetent developers and programmers at Inno. Instead, wherever you were in the game becomes your endpoint, but the game finishes the episode you are in, so you lose. Period. You lose game resources, you lose battles you were winning, you lose your fighting resources, and you lose time, so you may miss a large fraction of the entire day’s rewards. It is so frustrating that I quit every week. It is such a shame, because the game - if it actually worked - is a truly great fun, and addicting game. But the problems, which they keeping making over and over without learning from their mistakes, make you want to throw your phone or computer out of your 44th floor window.
Awesome game
by Helshira on 2021/09/29 20:09
Been playing for years now. Guild is great I’m in. Which helps in leveling great buildings. I also like the new look it has with recent update. Never had any bugs either on iPad. TY for a great game.

It’s the game that never ends
by Level 113 bored on 2021/09/25 23:55
After 10 years of playing as I was reaching the end, they just keep adding and adding. HEY GUYS, games are supposed to come to an end. The “prizes” they offer in all the quests are crappy and mostly useless. This game has become a “buy diamonds to advance” but they're allowed to claim this is a “free” game. Over the last 2 years, I’ve scaled my playing time back, because it’s just gotten to the point of redundancy.
Great game one problem
by naik5210 on 2021/09/25 12:37
Great game but you need to be really patient with it. It will take years to get really high, unless you use money/diamonds. if you are a patient person this game is great 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼😊😊😊😊😢😢

Why? Why did this update change the button sizes? Who asked for this? I know most players did not since no one is happy with this update. Do not fix what isn’t broken…

Amazing everything
by scorpion is the best on 2021/09/24 18:38
First off the game is amazing and has so much detail on everything, they also have the history correct with everything. I had a problem with the game because I accidentally did something I didn’t mean to and I contacted the support team and I got it fixed the same day, amazing service. Best game ever.
Great game but lots of lag.
by Minecfafter on 2021/09/23 20:32
This is a great game but lately the game has been very laggy and after the most recent update all the icons that display things such as how many coins, supplies, diamonds, forge points, population and level of happiness you have are way too small and hard to see now and that is something I dislike. Please fix the lag problem and please return the size of all the icons to the previous size or at least add a setting the allows players to make the icons bigger and easier to see. Otherwise this is a great game.
Latest update fail

We need to e able to block what I can only assume is a young kid being rude and taking the fun out of the game. Why cant we block other players????

If you like playing a progressive game then this is the game to play. One secret to this game is to take your time through each level and make sure you have gotten all you can out of each level before you move forward. This is not a race game and if you race through this game it will hurt you in higher levels. I enjoy playing this game and it is a whole lot better when you are in a great guild that is friendly and helpful like the guild I have joined and enjoy being a member of Blue Moon. Moonies till the end!!
Lots of fun

For the casual player

Progresses at an ok pace. Enjoy all the events and ability to trade for goods. I do wish there were ways of earning more diamonds or something that they were only needed to speed things along as that is a limiting factor in some functionality and may result in my losing interest at some point.

Rise of cultures vastly superior to this
by Typh3rJ on 2021/09/12 02:33
I played forge for 2 weeks and it just was a grind… can’t rotate buildings and just too hard to shuffle everything with the limited space. Found rise of cultures and it’s the same basic concept but game mechanics are so much more user friendly. Don’t have to hop on the game every 5 minutes to get the most gold, it collects it for you while you’re not playing. No paths to worry about and buildings rotate
Horrible game

I can not get into my game somehow someone change my user name and is using my account and email. I have sent five emails to customers support, but they have not replied. I got two emails with another username on it. Something is wrong with this game and customer support will not help me. I have give a star to the game or I can not send this review. I was actually enjoying the game until this happened .
Racquet of hackers illegal game play
by inno cheats on 2021/09/04 13:14
INNO has a serious problem with cheating in Noarsil world. An absolute disgrace and all out embarrassment. To the integrity and INNO ability to stop scripts and macros and other enhanced cheating tools. What’s worse is that all the brilliant minds at INNO choose to ignore or just to stupid to put safeties in place to prevent cheating. Do something about the run away cheating players from Legends of Mirth and Warcadia. INNO needs to look into this issue. INNO YOU HAVE CHEATERS.

Building locks
by bdun285 on 2021/09/03 14:42
Forcing us to keep event buildings we don’t want is stupid. What is the point of the antique shop if we can’t use it when it we want? Some event buildings just aren’t that helpful to progressing in the game and if I want to trade them I should be able to instead of them taking space in my inventory. Like at least let us delete them.

Problem with a hacker
by stendersan on 2021/09/02 19:04
Woke up one morning and it showed I had earned 100 forge points. Couldn’t understand why. Looked at my inventory and only had 30 forge points. 200 forge points disappeared, plus 70 of the 100 I had supposedly earned. Later it showed that I had put the forge points on someone’s Great Building. They can’t see or figure it out. Game is okay for awhile, but as in life, someone has to find a way to ruin it for everyone.

Broken Zoom, Mistreatment of Mobile Users
by Vilnius Vilkas on 2021/09/01 02:57
In many ways, a good game, but serious problems: 1. Zoom ranges from zoomed in to very zoomed in. Zooming out to view one’s whole city doesn’t work. That might almost make sense on a phone, but on an iPad it’s idiotic. One should be able to zoom out and view one’s whole city. 2. The game is setup to severely disadvantage mobile users. The browser version includes features not included in mobile (GvG for example) that ensure mobile users cannot compete with browser users.
Great game betrayed by the developer.
by DCNY125 on 2021/09/01 02:16
It’s a terribly clever game that is entirely undone by Inno’s plain refusal to enforce rules against players cheating. Players who use multiple accounts to push resources to their main account, guilds who use alt accounts to gain advantages in guild vs guild, players who use cash outside the game to buy accounts and resources in the game….all permitted by Inno. You will not be playing on a level playing field so if you do opt to play, keep your wallet closed. It’s a screaming shame - they created a brilliant game and fumbled it in the details. UPDATE: The developer responded and I appreciate it. However, the advice to contact support to resolve the matter is worthless. Have escalated the problem well past support to no avail. Cheating is permitted in Forge of Empire - you can use alts, push accounts, bots, scripts…they do not care at all.
Glitchy
by mas4489 on 2021/08/31 21:05
Other users are friendly, the game is ok, support is terrible. Had used resources for a 4 hr attack bonus, game glitched really bad. Lost troops and resources and all support said was sorry. The game was still glitchy 2 days after which makes it hard to complete battles, events and quests. Update as of 8/31: Support still not willing to make it right but commented for me to get with support

Login problems
by vecchia5 on 2021/08/30 21:22
The game ask me to upgrade the game, after I login the app want send me a confirmation code to a phone number that I never had and do not exist in my device, the last two digits phone number finish with 03? 03? So I cannot login anymore after I play for two year and put money on it 😡
Better than the rest, but that’s not exactly impressive…..
by Mindthefox on 2021/08/30 16:22
It’s nice to see a version of this game that actually gives you challenges and obstacles to overcome instead of just trying to force you to buy their free-mium add-ons. With that being said, they should do a better job of exposing players to tactics and the diverse playing experience that’s available. After six months of playing I think I finally figured out how to build stilt houses and buy property jk but seriously
Great game for history

Bots and scripts killed this game
by Yay, free stuff on 2021/08/29 12:42
Forge of Empires has reached its end of life, do not download. The entire game has been overrun with cheaters using bots and scripts to exploit the game and ruin it. Complaints fall on deaf ears; they know that this is happening and refuse to take any action. Casual play, special events, and any kind of advancement requires you to pay for diamonds. Any new content that has been recently released, have been thoughtless, repetitive and uncreative rewrites of the existing game. Inno is scraping the bottom of the barrel with fancy commercials in the hopes of luring in unsuspecting new players to donate their pound of flesh to this geriatric cash cow. Dont waste your time on this one, it’s too late. Call your broker and short the parent company Modern Times Group (MTG), taking advantage of paying customers is the only thing keeping Innogames GmbH alive.
Terrible support
by frustrated1!! on 2021/08/28 21:13
The game is great when Inno doesn’t continuously screw it up with updates. Every time they patch the game something screws up. It’s gotten so bad lately the game is no longer enjoyable.

Really fun game
by Rufunzio on 2021/08/28 15:16
This game has kept me interested for way longer than I ever expected. As soon as you think you’ve got it figured out, there’s a whole new level you learn about. Spending money on the game is not necessary, but it does help speed things along, so I do make in-app purchases when they offer deals. But all told, I’ve spent less on this game than I would have buying the other games I would have paid for in this time.

Bad lagging
by JuJeeMD on 2021/08/28 13:36
Battlegrounds is a huge part of the game and there are terrible lag issues to the point it’s unplayable, Inno says not to submit tickets and the lag continues. They do updates and it makes things worse. People spend a ton of time and money on the game Inno needs to fix this. Seasoned players quitting over it.
Whacking out

Good, but…
by GinaJulius on 2021/08/27 22:50
I think there should be other ways to acquire the forge coins, takes too long to get the amount you need when the game tells you to research stuff, but you’ve already used them doing the other things it told you to do.

Scripts
by Geoff Hill Elevator Musac on 2021/08/22 14:34
Inno Games needs to improve their script detection technologies. It was a problem in GvG and now it’s a problem in GbG. A certain guild in a certain world now has members who were suspected of using scripts (bots) in a powerful GvG guild. This guild went from mediocre to extremely powerful overnight in GbG and we’ve all watched them take sectors in 10-15 seconds flat. It’s impossible to take a sector that fast without cheating. Inno, please take honesty seriously. This game is not fun or worth spending money when we all know the cheaters don’t get punished

Attacking problem
by DranzerM on 2021/08/15 15:48
Players that are 3 or more ages above you can still attack you. Some players stick around in Iron Age, just to farm Bronze Age players that just got to the Iron Age. The little help from shuffling neighborhoods or friends tavern protection does NOT freaking help !!! You are still a farm who has been in the Iron Age for many years !!!!
Clever, complex game
by Dread Pirate Gryphon on 2021/08/14 08:31
There’s so much here to learn and discover! Lots of clever strategy and interaction with other players. I don’t spend any money on diamonds and find it completely unnecessary. Reviewers complaining that it’s expensive are just not taking advantage of the game’s possibilities, especially through guild alliances. Hang in there and learn from longer term players!
Can’t put it down
by Bear2b on 2021/08/10 04:00
I’ve built an empire in three different cities, and connected with players from each city. The best help in the game is from the people you meet that can help you build great cities. There will be in game purchases (you can’t resist) that help you get great rewards from monthly quests. If you don’t spend any $$$ advancement will be slow. The game is fun, challenging and I can’t stop playing. King Atticus11

When I go to open the game it automatically shuts down , if I click it a few more times it just opens loads and freezes my whole phone up. Had it on my phone for 4 hours before it started glitching . Haven’t played it since . Deleted it and re-downloaded it and still didn’t fix the issue . Did the update and still didn’t fix the issue.

🤠amazing game
by Gibby48413 on 2021/08/06 04:27
I think this simple add on should be added: visit other players settlements / colonies. And a BIG bug is that if you tie on guild expedition but your guild is in the second-last placement they don’t get the rewards. And the statue of honor selection kit fragments needed to at least 50. Otherwise a great game. And if you play the game (U.S) select world East-Nagach and join the guild YoOPeRs ♻️ ✌️peace out BTW FoE is a completely FREE game.

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.
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.
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!
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.

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.
Great strategy game

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.
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.
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 👌
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.
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.
Recent updates have ruined aspects of the game
by Jessica_1155 on 2021/10/07 16:28
Guild battle grounds is quite literally one of the best features of this game. Once it was introduced it change the game completely and while over almost 3 yrs there have been a lot of ups and downs with how inno is changing GBG the most disappointing is the latest update. The new target and stop signs have ruined something that wasnt broken in the least. Now the flags are covered by this ungodly large hand and you cant see a competitor hitting. With the opd flag you could see flashes easily letting them get a head start on a sector without notice. Also this update and the last have made aspects of the game that used to run smoothly just janky and frustrating. Buying buildings in GBG now you get lag and get scrolled back to top of the list making you accidentally waste goods on somety you didnt want to buy. In a race this is going to slow things down taking 10sec to build camps can literally lose a race for you. The previous update buying fp with coin and medals in GE was ruined. Used to be able to click click click fast and be done. Now there is lag in between purchases. Seem the new changes inno are making are doing nothing but destroying a game that was fine the way it was. Some aspects dont need to be fiddled with...plain and simple
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?”
All players beware, inno doesn’t care about helping you
by joseph A the magnificient on 2019/02/15 22:12
I have played this game for over two years and found it to be very entertaining, until recently my ritual flames were glitching and covering up other buildings. I decided to delete them all to make space for more valuable buildings. I went to delete one that was covering my level 68 arc, and since I clicked on the ritual flame graphic I assumed I was on the flame so checked the box and deleted my arc instead. All inno would do was give me a set of blue prints and the goods to rebuild it, even though their glitched caused this to happen, and cost me 58 sets up prints, thousands of fps, and countless hours spent leveling it. All I asked was for inno to make me whole by giving the 58 sets of prints back and the forge points to make my arc level 68 again because this was caused by their software, and all they cared about was themselves and not their customer. So all beware that if you need support or help from inno, they won’t give it unless it is convenient for them, players happiness be damned.
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.
Simply great
by richcole99 on 2021/10/16 06:43
This game is hella fun. A lot of things you can do, whether trading goods, fighting battles, building buildings or, my favorite, rearranging your city. It must have economics lessons in it due to the various currencies in the game - diamonds, coins, supplies, goods, silver, etc. Diamonds are purchasable with real money; they can accelerate the game but you can also play quite well without them. This game counsels patience as you have to wait 24 hours to collect payouts from the best buildings (“Great Buildings”). It rewards you for helping other players, and they in turn help you and are rewarded. The periodic events are usually fun and always cost too much, whether that’s too much of your own currencies (see above) or diamonds. Small quibble, but note it can be addictive and, as I believe most of these games are, it is designed to be so. Overall, this game is extremely well-realized and has a devoted fan base. It’s a garden that if you tend daily will provide you a harvest of fun. Start your journey in the Stone Age today …
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.
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.
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 😋
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.
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.
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??
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
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!
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.
Get it fixed. - pass the buck - review worse. Not better.
by Kelly Gilhespie on 2019/05/09 22:16
Below is the first time I reviewed FoE. These are my changes in 19 hours. Forge of Empires just wants to pass the buck. Unfortunately, it’s my buck they’re passing. I’m pretty sure that the FoE customer support believes it is a perfect game. How come MY MONEY is pending payment to Apple in MY bank? How come the payments I made to FoE is pending in Apple? How come FoE screenshot says ‘purchase successful” but I never get my purchases anymore? At least during the special events. I purchased this morning just fine. Got my purchase too. What changed? My bank holds the money in pending either till it clears or 7 days, whichever comes first. My theory? Something is wrong in the State of Forge of Empires. Every time I PURCHASE diamonds I never get them. Along with the special that goes with it. This is like the fourth help ticket I’ve opened. It’s ridiculous. I get to 1. Check my bank 2. Log in here 3. Log in there 4. Get half of my purchase. Always without the special. This doesn’t happen on any other game. I get what I buy. And the thing is, there is no sorry this happened. There is no sorry that I have to go back in and ask for the rest of my purchase. This didn’t happen a year ago when I started playing. It’s only been about the last little while. Might be time to find a new game.
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.
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.
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!
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!
