Mostly good
by xtp10 on 2020/12/01 04:14
Great game in terms of long term developmental play. Complex system of rewards and different game “currencies” makes it an excellent strategic game. Unfortunately like most on line multi player games it still has elements where the bigger/stronger you are the more you can steal from the weaker players. Too many game developers like to encourage the bullies instead of encouraging team work and positive growth.
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.

Fun game if you don’t mind waiting months and years to have ENOUGH MONEY IN THE GAME to do anything once you’ve gotten past level 5..... so if you have nothing else to do... download this game and waste all your life waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting to get the billion trillion dollars OF THE MONEY IN THE GAME!!! you need to build a shack after you get past level 5... Why does it take so so so so much of the games money to build ANYTHING after level 5?? I deleted it cause I was waiting way too too too too long just to get enough of the games credits to do anything!!!
Slow loading

This game has become annoyingly slow to load. Not worth the two minutes to get started every time on an ipad
Rigged Daily Challenges
by Mr. Humphreys on 2020/11/29 15:19
I have played this game in the past and loved it, including the daily challenges, but now the challenges are rigged so that you either have to pay hundreds of diamonds or are forced to engage in impossible battles to win. My question is why would break something that worked just fine? Oh wait that’s right Greed and not the desire to make a fair honest game. The LOVE of money is the root of all evil F.O.E.
In game support
by Increase Territory on 2020/11/29 08:52
Update: Finally deleted game for good; so disappointing. If you are a new player, be warned, Lady Marlena in support is a nightmare; unprofessional and rude. Someone in my guild posted that we are allowed to use FoE helper so i downloaded it and once i did, i was banned but once i removed FoE helper, the ban was removed. I contacted in game support and the community manager "Lady Marlena;" from in game support responded she could not give details so she did not answer my question on why i was banned for using FoE helper but not others. I am feeling i was singled out for a reason and i still do not know why. In the years i have played, i have spent over $1,000 on Forge of Empires and i have always played by the rules and never been banned until now. I am back on the game after i removed FoE helper but i only downloaded it bc others said it was okay to use. I want to know why i was banned but not others who even post in global chat that they use FoE helper but no one in in game support will give me a straightforward answer to as to why. In game support answers in vague responses and this "Lady Marlena," what others have posted about her is true; she is rude. Instead of answering my question or escalating case to someone who could answer or help me; she closed my ticket. I should have a right to know why i was banned but not others when i invested so much money and time into Forge of Empires. With all the money INNO makes from us, you would think they woud have better people working in game support.
I play like an hour straight
by guardian kingdoms on 2020/11/28 19:29
I love this graphics, I love this game, and I love pretty much anything about this game however, I don’t usually play this game for a couple minutes every hour or so, I play this game for like an hour straight. This game isn’t one of those games where you can do that and it’s still very fun. If this game was one of those then I would give it a 5 star rating instead of just 4 stars. So it’s not that fun when you “have” to play it that way.
More fun to smash your thumb with a hammer
by ihatebillgates on 2020/11/28 04:13
I plead with you.....do not download or ever play any game made by INNO. They will steal from you. I played FOE for two years and was a top contender until I got tired of them double charging me on a regular basis. So I quit. Gave it all up. Today, I thought I would give it another chance. Guess what? They already double charged me again and are not willing to refund me. I’ve been down this road before with these guys. They didn’t even wait 24 hours to rip me off this time. Do your self a favor. Stay away from anything INNO. Just go out to the garage, find a hammer and smash all the fingers on your left hand. Same same as dealing with INNO

Game keeps crashing after Halloween update

Game crashes on fire tablet all the time and on iPhone ever since the new update it’s been horrible!!!!! Uninstalled and reinstalled numerous times still crashes!!!!
Like grass growing
by htrefbdhdf on 2020/11/25 19:26
It is much more fun to watch grass growing than to play this game. The developers did everything to make the progress as slow as possible. Waiting time for simple resources is measured in hours with nothing to do in the meantime. Worse, the game is open ended with no clear goal that would define a winner. There is also excessive randomness in the game events so one cannot really develop any sensible strategy. There is no competition despite the fact that the total number of participants supposedly runs into thousands. One is aware of existence of some, but interactions are fleeting increasing the feeling of other wordiness. Finally, it is a total mystery how playing the game benefits participants, it does not require analytical or strategic skills, just mindless waiting for something to happen. Read a book, learn playing guitar, solve sudoku puzzles, do anything that enriches you rather than wasting your neurons on this pointless exercise.
Game locking up
by Dianacoo on 2020/11/25 16:39
I play on an iPhone 7. Game just freezes mid battles, mid tavern visits, kicks me out completely. I’ve freed phone space, delete ted and reloaded game constantly, shut down and rebooted internet. Nothing works.
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.
Not fun. Also just another scam
by N A T H A N1617 on 2020/11/24 18:25
The title is all I have to say. Just place ads in appropriate places within the game. Don’t make people pay 100s of dollars just to complete a stupid mobile game. This game would awesome if it didn’t take an eternity to complete. Also I never got the diamonds I purchased (Umm ok lol). And I realize it’s not easy making these type of games so yeah respect anyways. (To much dopamine in the world, Nah I’m sayin?)
Slow start and boring
by RichDBT on 2020/11/24 11:25
This game is dull and boring. The quests become impossible in a really short amount of time playing. Your growth quickly stagnates if you don’t purchase diamonds. It’s the same money pit paradigm as many other games. I’m done with these “free” games from now on.
Why I love this game a little bit 👌
by summer alz on 2020/11/22 22:50
Why I love this game a little bit because am a beginner and there’s a problem if I buy a building that coast diamonds then if I sell it I can’t get the diamonds back but I love this game to because you can fight and get rewards and you can build a city and do other fun stuff even my dad loves this game so much and you can chat with other to I don’t now even now but I like the game and I’m still a beginner so I don’t now so much of the game but so if you love you so the ad you should download it it’s so much fun👌😄.
Don’t believe the developers
by Gabeturman on 2020/11/20 07:27
Not only have I played this game on two different accounts because they lost my data but I’ve read many reviews that ignore people’s experiences and say that you don’t have to spend money to play this. The economy in game is way too unbalanced. It costs hundreds of diamonds every where but the packs to buy are woefully inadequate. I could spend fifty dollars on one pack to get 4000 and they’d be gone in game like twice. Another thing is the raiding. I am attacked and my resources drained. I cannot block this because my tavern isn’t high enough level. So I’m high enough to be looted but not enough to defend? I also can’t advance in research because I cannot get the resources and I’m not paying money to get something I should be able to research. Resources shouldn’t be difficult to get. This game is designed to make you pay no matter how they sell it. Don’t bother downloading.
BUG!!!👾👾PLEASE FIX!!!
by Just_Nathan_27 on 2020/11/20 00:21
So far this game has been amazing and super fun to play in my off time. But recently there has been this weird bug on my Viking settlement. The mead brewery hast been working!! Before, it just took a while for the info to pop up, but now when ever I tap on it to make some mead, it reloads my page and takes my back to the login screen. I’m just 20 mead short and it’s stopping me from completing this settlement!!! PLEASE FIX!!

There is a glitch
by mac2636 on 2020/11/16 21:04
The problem is, when I try to press the complete button on a quest with the lady with blue eyes and a red bandana on her head (I forgot her name) it freezes. Please fix this, I don’t know if this is happening with anyone else, I may just need to restart my iPad, I don’t know. If you find any bugs in the script like that, please try to fix it.
Love it...

If you play on an Ipad ..Skip it!
by Dansbeloved on 2020/11/10 23:23
I have played this game 7+ yrs. They added a new format. I have a NEW Ipad, plenty of memory, updated IOS. You can be in the middle of an activity in FoE. It CONSTANTLY crashes, freezes, spontaneously reboots and reloads. Contacts with tech support, they suggest the same tired trouble shooting. Uninstall.. reinstall. Were I a new player, I’d just UNINSTALL and move ON!
Meh
by Zykroft on 2020/11/10 13:01
Do you like putting LOTS of time into a game only to find out that higher level, more powerful players, in your neighborhood can incessantly raid you? Do you enjoy the frustration of working on a game only to have what you need to advance be taken by other players? Do you enjoy spending lots of money on “quests”? Then this is the game for you!! Basically expect to pay money to stay relevant and expect to be raided by other players ALL the time. They say the “neighborhood” changes but it usually doesn’t it’s extremely frustrating, I’ve contemplated quitting many times and probably will one day when I’ve had enough.

More Than a Quick Glance
by I Have Joy in My Life! on 2020/11/09 02:29
I have been playing this game for about 6 months at this point, so now I feel confident enough to review it. This game is not fast paced, nor is it meant to be. Of course, like any other game, if you spend money on it, you will progress farther. Everything is overpriced. I agree with that. But you can move forward without paying a cent if you are patient! That being said, I love the game play. There is no shortage of things to keep you busy, including •Guild Expeditions: negotiate or fight your way through the jungle to win fantastic prizes! •Guild Battlegrounds: compete against other guilds for dominance! •Cultural Settlements: build a new city! •Guild v. Guild: compete against all the guilds on your server in a military only competition •Finally, my favorite part is just chatting with guild mates and making a city! My advice for new players: find a good guild, that is how you will grow! Most guilds are happy to accept you if you will try hard Thanks for reading this, my one request to Inno is that they put GVG on mobile! Currently this big game play mode is only on PC and the people that play on mobile are missing out big time! 😊thanks for reading
Statistical cheat
by Disappointed10011 on 2020/11/08 14:12
Game lays out several probabilities for success. I have tracked multiple of these over time and every single one underperforms. To the point that this can only be intentional as this is statistically improbable. Do not trust this game

Bug or something
by Sethda21 on 2020/11/06 05:04
I was playing it for a while I signed into my Facebook account through it and I got to where I was building and I got to the construction part and it kicked me out and I went back through my Facebook and it just started me all over and that was annoying so I deleted the application maybe it can be fixed and I’ll come back just scared it’ll do it again. Thank you
This is a pretty cool game

I’ve had a lot of fun playing this game, and I hope that GVG can eventually be added to mobile, but other than that, perfect game.
Great game but one major limitation
by weasel1999 on 2020/11/05 04:17
This game requires team work and thoughtful strategy. Just one major limitation. It has a guild verse guild element that is offered only on your desktop yet counts the most heavily towards the guild’s ranking. Either remove it from the game or offer it to be played on mobile devices as well.
So far it’s enjoyable
by Rolling snake on 2020/11/04 12:55
I just reached the High Middle Ages. I wanted to play for a while before commenting. So here goes. I think this is a fun and enjoyable game. Yes it’s tedious at times. Collect coins and goods so you can move build or upgrade. But that’s the point of the game. Don’t be in a big hurry. There’s always something you can doing. Conquering provinces, fighting in quests, ect. Yes diamonds are precious and hard to get. But if your in a hurry, buy some. It’s not that expensive. I don’t mind buying a few now and then. Mainly to support the developers. These games cost money to develop and maintain. So a few dollars help these companies to keep developing them. As long as your not in a hurry, you can go as you want. I enjoy the game. Gives me some entertainment during my downtime
Good and fun
by cowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwss on 2020/11/03 20:33
However, can you do a deal like 10 diamonds for watching an ad? The ad could refresh code however, can you do a deal like 10 diamonds for watching an ad? The ad could refresh every five minutes. Also, giving it four stars because I feel it can be expanded on, and paying 2400 supplies for five tickets for the special event is just 😡
Good game
by Haddie D Hernandez on 2020/11/03 00:06
You can build,fight,trade and more! You freind other players to trade with them and you can claim land for new resources, expand your life empire level up and get to new ages. When you level up you get new things like theater or the courthouse. Overall I think it’s a good game. GAME ON!!!
Great but . . .
by 172120 on 2020/11/02 15:12
Overall the game is great. You don’t need to spend a dime to progress, just be smart in trading items. My only concern is the placing of the “finish now button” where I always accidentally press making me spend diamonds unintentionally. Can the developers try to make that button smaller? Maybe it was strategize by the game. I don’t know. But like I said, it’s a great game.✌🏻
Support that doesn’t
by Regrets about FOE on 2020/11/02 13:48
Recently had an issue with using a program that (as advertised) helps with some of the data collection for this game. Nowhere in any forums is it suggested that there are illegal programs that are banned by FOE. No list exists. Just a very vague reference to bots. After notification from FOE, I tried to ascertain where I was being illegal, mind you there was no clarification from the powers that be, that X, Y or Z or illegal. So finally figure it out, they say great and we carry on. 14 days later they tell me I’m still illegal. I go through the process of cleaning my drive and slicing the cache, no success. They put my game in time out. Finally after a few days they suggest I check extensions. Bingo, clear them and FOE will not lift ban. I did everything they requested in a timely manner, this was a first offense. Do not play this game. The Powers on the other side of a screen or unapologetic about not wishing to help a player.
It’s a good game which a little problem......
by anoymouse 555555 on 2020/11/01 16:10
The game is fun just it gets a little complicated all of the stuff that pops up and the more you get into the game is the mora that a bunch of stuff pops up and says this and that.

No need to pay to play
by gtb1968 on 2020/10/31 04:04
I was reading some of the reviews. I would like to say as a player of over five years. If you don’t want to spend money on this game you never have to. There is no quest, event or any other part of this game that requires you to spend money. What this game does require is patience and strategy. I don’t know how many people play this game but there are many players that will help you become a better player, all you have to do is ask. I recommend joining a guild as soon as possible as this gives you a team to work with and reduces time for production of troops and gives you many other advantages. It upsets me that many people have said bad things about this game that I love to play. This game is not for everyone. Thank you for a great game, A loyal long term player.
So far it’s broken, kind of?
by Asdfgfdfgh on 2020/10/30 15:16
Just a few days in, the dumb “story” tells me to click on the “+” (plus sign) at top center, IT DOES NOT WORK.Also I am guided by the game to spend all my “free” diamonds on the first day, with little chance for growth unless I spend $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$?. Fix the former problem or you won’t get the latter $$!

Typical pay to win crap
by A6779 on 2020/10/29 21:08
I get these types of games require patience but this is too much. Unless you're willing to spend money often you could be stuck for weeks. To add too the insult, the players who have spent a couple thousand, like to attack and steal supplies from your buildings. Sad part is, the game isn’t a war game, it’s not a competition, but money is the only part they care about, so the credit card warriors will get their way every time.
Why it dose it waste

Game freezes 10 times per hour of play on ios. FoE Support couldn’t help and acknowledged they sometimes have trouble with ios.
Pretty suspicious
by connhen on 2020/10/28 11:43
The game itself is fine. Nothing special, but it was a good time waster, but the issue with it is how as soon as I impulsively bought a micro transaction, my account was logged out, my password didn’t work anymore, and I couldn’t get it back. I don’t normally buy micro transactions at all, but to be completely erased as soon as I give some money feels like being spit at in the face. Part of me feels like this is just a way to get me to get another micro transaction to get back my progress.

This is not a game!
by Lanthoran the Unseen on 2020/10/26 00:11
This is just a pit to throw money at. Your better off gambling! There is no real set of guidelines for it to even be considered a game. If you have lots of money, you can be the most powerful of all. But you never actually win, so not a game. I’ve been trying to delete my account but customer service must just be a bunch monkeys throwing poop at each other.
Account lose
by AIRPIKACHU15 on 2020/10/24 16:56
The game is really good, but I gave it a Four Star because my first account got deleted because I didn’t play the game for a month because I was grounded. So if you do get this game make sure you log in at least once per week if you want your account to stay. Game developers please fix this.
Sir Game Critic
by AnnoyedByInfoRelease on 2020/10/24 03:27
There was a time games were created to be enjoyable experiences. Today the in app craze has turned developers into greedy scam artists trying to get rich quick. No longer is developing a game about providing a joyful entertaining experience for customers that you value, it is a ever more convoluted digression into scamming your way into big $$$. Stay away from this game!
Ok, bit too much waiting, slow to expand

Even when spending a little money, expansion of city is slow or limited. Consequently, it gets a bit dull waiting for others to build you up or award medals.

Really great and fun game!
by LordsMobile on 2020/10/22 18:04
I have played this game for a while now and absolutely love it! It’s super fun to go through the ages and build great buildings. Guilds in the game are all super helpful and supportive of you. The Guild expeditions are amazing and GBG is super fun! However, the combat is a little confusing and I wish the game would explain a little better in what units counter what. Also In my opinion I feel like the event quests are a smidge too hard. Like there all doable but are very difficult. I hope that in the future they become just a little easier. Nothing crazy but just like more reasonable.
Great if you like garbage
by adkc llc on 2020/10/22 16:05
I “played” this for about 2 months now and deleting. It’s a typical trash game that just wants you to buy diamonds. Was hoping to find a game like age of empire as I love strategy games and this is certainly not about strategy, just about trying to get you to spend money on a buggy, garbage game

Great game... but my stuff got restarted

This is a great game I have been play a along time now... but when I got back on today all the stuff I had was gone so now I have to restart everything.
Why I deleted the game...
by headless haunter on 2020/10/20 17:19
The reason why I deleted this game because I lost all of my progress after I haven’t used it for so long so please fix this and I’ll download this game again!
Extremely disappointed
by gLDreW on 2020/10/20 04:35
I had hours and hours of gameplay. I simply didn’t log in for maybe a month or so after playing every single day for over a year. They deleted my account. All progress lost and money spend in game lost. I was told that I didn’t have enough “diamonds” to get back what I lost. Ridiculous. My family and I were sick from the pandemic and I’m unable to play yet all my progress deleted because of that? Definitely getting 1 star for how this has been handled. Especially after reaching out to support and then telling me “ sorry we can’t help you because you were inactive too long”. Update: still denied access and will never download this game again. To not download unless you can play every single day.
best app ever
by mc.dpt on 2020/10/19 23:22
best app everrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
Overall,pretty good!
by Dparikh on 2020/10/18 20:47
I have played this game for 2 weeks and I think it is one of the best games I’ve ever played.There are minor problems but they are small.The minor problems are diamonds cost money,and you need diamonds for many things,and supplies are harder to get than gold coins even though you have to use them more .But other than that it is a great game.
Good game
by kilickser on 2020/10/18 12:12
The game is really awesome but sense it is free it is kinda pay to win
This game is VERY expensive. You can't advance at a decent rate without paying.

Love the graphics and functions of the game. Very user friendly and you don’t need to invite all your friends to be successful, but it doesn’t hurt.

Diamonds
by Gifts376 on 2020/10/12 21:36
Didn’t get my diamonds when paid for them.
Purchase Failure
by RavenGinger on 2020/10/12 16:03
I purchased a pkg of diamonds with 85 bonus forge points. The forge points disappeared after being there for 15 minutes. Why would they show up and just disappear? I don’t want to read your Help suggestions or mess around asking questions. The diamonds are still there, so there is no reason the bonus forge points should disappear. I want a complete refund, and I don’t care if the purchase is still pending. If pending is such an important issue, then why are the diamonds still there? FIX IT!
Good
by Schnoppz on 2020/10/11 22:47
Needs some work for more compact placement of homes and towers need capabilities of shifting platforms. Wait time for upgrades are extremely long especially when you just start playing you need to keep the player interested and more productive wait time needs to be cut to keep player productive.

In app purchases is too extreme
by Write2genius on 2020/10/10 20:16
This game abuses in app purchases a LOT. After few days it is impossible to play unless you spend some real money. Or else it will take one week for a single upgrade. This is just too extreme. If they would keep it more reasonable I would have continued playing and also made some more purchases. But at this rate, I am just quitting this game, because you get nowhere even if you pay few hundred dollars on game purchases. You should be ready to pay few thousand bucks to even become competitive.
Worth it !!!
by Nas.x0 on 2020/10/09 05:29
Definitely worth it! I’ve had this app and actively play it for a month now and I love it!
Significant program error and deficiencies
by geologist2 on 2020/10/08 17:34
The Expedition is significantly flawed. A) The heal function does not work properly. I have attempted to heal units individually and inmass unsuccessful, costing me units. These losses are unacceptable. B) The program is badly flawed. There are increasing event of “locking up during play”. C) During play in the Egyptian Realm, several times I have been awarded “pickles to remove obstacles “, but they were not available for use. They disappeared! During combat, results from the second difficulty level are bias. I have lost the entire army there, then used the same units at level three and succeeded. If the difficulty level is reflected in the points and rewards, there is a flaw in the programs operations. This is not an isolated occurrence. ***** Increasingly I am finding the Game unsatisfactory. *** The costs vs enjoyment of play are becoming unreasonable. There is a measure of inflexibility in addressing “Forum” comments, modifying Game performance, adding flexibility to positioning of buildings ( rotations as a general feature, not as a reward), ease of acquiring land and allowing Great Building to be advanced UNIFORMLY. There is a stall in increasing performances at my current level that makes FP essentials useless. There are guild members and friends that are commenting negatively about the Games performance and responses to problems. Keep in mind, word of mouth influences consumer spending.
Very bad don’t download it

Boring
Best game
by itsyaboiskinnuh on 2020/10/07 17:47
I played all the games on the App Store I played clash of clans I played all civilizations on PC I played other games like this but nothing compares to forge of empire it’s literally one of the best games I’ve played and I’ve been playing this game for almost 4 years now great job looking forward to see how the game will go in the future keep up the good work
Nearly impossible to add land
by aNNOYing533 on 2020/10/07 11:41
After a certain starting phase it becomes nearly impossible to grow the size of your city without paying big $$. A frustrating waste of time.
Great Game but...
by Ancient Hero on 2020/10/07 11:29
I love this game, it reminds me of age of civilizations and is very stimmy from my autistic viewpoint. However! I am more peaceful, I travel through the ages without attacking much (aside from special events if I don’t have the goods to do the trade). As such I have had another player bullying me for about two weeks now. They would plunder me every two days just to steal my iron. So I stopped producing iron, then I stopped producing everything. Because they just kept attacking me. And this player was obviously out of my league. Massive military that the only way I could beat him was to channel money I DON’T HAVE in some pay to win bull crap. If there is one change I would make, it would be the option to turn off people attacking your village. Especially when it ruins the fun of players who just want to be peaceful. In short, upon receiving an email that my account was about to be deleted? I wasn’t even upset. Because yeah sure, that’s probably how you guys get money. But it ruined the experience for me. So thanks for nothing.
Game crashed and deleted my world
by Alcnoangel on 2020/10/07 06:12
I have been playing this game off and on for about six months. Liked the layout and design along with the challenge to accomplish some objectives. Very disappointed in the way this game locked up when attempting to use a upgrade feature. In reloading the game, discovered I was bounced from the server. Logged back into Game Center account and my journey was deleted. Time invested in this not worthy of playing a second time.
Having fun but room for improvement
by I LOVE THIS GAME!!, on 2020/10/07 04:46
Would be nice if the FP bar would allow more than 100 capacity. Why does it even need to be capped? Doesn’t seem to serve any real purpose. Would be nice to have higher friends list cap as well. Thanks Inno! Keep up the good work, time consuming game but lots of fun and gives me a sense of accomplishment!

Clash of Clans ripoff

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.
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.
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.
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.
Welp
by cntthnkfnm on 2020/01/31 22:22
Well, it was a good game. I played up until the colonial age and i built the SoZ (people who play the game will know what I’m talking about) but i had just built that i also had the CdM, LoA, ToB, and the colosseum but right after i built the SoZ i got off the game and I tried to get on it a few hours later and the game refused to log me in. Like it just wouldn’t let me. I tried restarting the internet to see if that was the problem, nope, found out it needed an update. So I updated it like usual thinking that was the problem but it still wouldn’t work. So I tried changing the country i was in to see if that did anything, it made me login with my apple id but then none of the worlds i had (i had 2) showed up. And it’s a real bummer because i was doing really good also, getting 30 FPs every day, was in a really great guild and i had a group chat with all the friends i have on there and it was really helpful because everyone helped one another it seemed like people had everything you needed to make a GB. But the game crashed or something, I probably will play it again but not for a real long time. Edit: like a day after i made this review the game fixed its self soo yeah good game 👌
Disappointed
by Diane Villela on 2018/12/09 16:02
This seemed like a cool game going threw the different ages I reached the Iron Age and realized creators are way too money hungry everything at some point costs diamonds I needed land to place things it costs 200 diamonds each for the first two which I felt was a little too much but I gave it the benefit of he doubt! I have to admit I spend money on this game but it didn’t last long at all. When I reached Iron Age I got two more slots available using diamonds and only one as free. I thought okay the first two were 200 diamonds each I’ll just purchase 400 diamonds and I’ll get these two nope I was wrong they charged 400 diamonds for one expansion. I’m going back to my other games because I wasted money time and patients on this game and I truely regret it. I have spent money in a games but if the Iron Age is 400 diamonds for one slot next Age is 800 diamonds and so on and so forth. You can’t really get a head without spending real money. I down right hate creators that purposely abuse their creation that could be cool but isn’t because they prefer making money but exploiting people just so people get a head in a game! I feel for it once but not anymore. If I could give 0 stars I would! I’m a person who doesn’t mind a few dollars here or there but I refuse to waste anymore time money or patients on creators and game who take advantage of people to this extreme.
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.
Unfair PVP
by Mac222nite on 2020/02/09 04:11
I did a review in game but just in case it doesn’t show up, avoid this game unless you like being ripped off. Player vs Player has ruined the game. Every time you get ahead a little another player takes your goods. If you have a lot of money you can BUY your way through the game or if you’re a thief you can take what you want. In my mind, the developers and thieves should be arrested in the real world. I spent REAL MONEY to get these goods and to progress in the game and they were taken from me by someone with a city and army so big that only a few players could defend themselves against. Before anyone thinks I’m a whiner, don’t worry I left and deleted my cities. Update: I deleted the city that was being attacked daily and I’m trying one more time. I like this game but this is FOE’s last chance with me. If it doesn’t get better I will leave for good. I don’t mind attacks if they are FAIR!! Higher level players should only be allowed to attack other players at the same level. Otherwise it’s robbery. INNO you said you hoped I would come back. Ok..here I am. We shall see if you truly want a fair game or not. Make PVP fair or you will lose more players than just me. Read your reviews. I’m not the only one who feels this way and I’m NOT going to BUY my way to the top.
Fun for hardcore strategy players
by free2play_player on 2020/11/25 01:45
I played this game twice once a few years ago and the other I started 6 months ago. I have to say the modern incarnation of the game is amazing and the older version bot ad much. The problem with game is that it is meant for higher leveled and more hardcore strategy game players. This means that most players that find the game bad is because it is to complicated. This is not to say that not investing every time and moment means it is not fun but looking for helpful guilds will allow you to learn all the game mechanics and advice. When I started playing the game I hopped around different guilds and until I found an active one that was not only helpful but required little to nothing to be part of. To this day I’m still in this guild and even though I’m in the top percentile of my server I still find the game not that taxing in time requirements. In fact I find myself playing the game to much which I have to say if played enough the game becomes very addictive. Overall this game is fair, rewards you, and I have yet to spend a SINGLE dollar playing it.
Forge of Empires
by janete24 on 2018/02/21 18:07
Game is boring. It’s basically a point/click/waiting game. And you do a lot of waiting to the point where you ask yourself “Am I even playing a game?” There’s no daily freebie for logging in to play. Scenery, landscapes, color in the game are dull. They do have what they call “incidents”, which are but randomly throughout the game, but you have to look everywhere, and look hard because they blend in too much with the rest of the scenery. What gets me most is you can’t expand your territory, and when you can’t expand you can’t put up buildings, and when you can’t put up buildings you can’t build, almost like you’re stuck in a corner. Then there are the challenges. You can’t fulfill them because you don’t have the buildings to build, and the reason you don’t have the buildings to build is because you don’t have the ability to expand your territory. These challenges should only be at the level you’re at, or with the resources you currently have to fulfill them. So again you’re in a corner and you can’t do anything. And the production buildings. Come on! I can only make one product at a time and it takes way too long. If the programmers are reading this “How do you earn diamonds and medals to expand your territory?”
Good but the wait though makes the game boring
by mr.l 64000 on 2019/07/17 05:51
Well it’s what you expect from a free app game. The game is just a point and wait game seriously it takes so long just to build a house even in the Bronze Age. Don’t get me started on the happiness gimmick I mean you already waste enough money and supplies on houses, supply buildings, and good buildings and how about just waste it on culture buildings and decorations. I mean I get but like I said before you already waste your money on houses and supply buildings. What I hate the most is forge points I mean why is the maximum limit 10 I mean I looked in different ages and it takes hundreds of forge points. Yeah you can buy them but whenever you buy a forge point but it gets more expensive when you buy them. Why does it take an hour just to one, there just should have been no forge points. In conclusion Forge of Empires is a good game but there cultural buildings should have been to increase supply buildings more and it should have applied to good buildings too.
Frustrating more than fun
by venuscrash24 on 2018/10/08 11:11
I really thought this would be a fun game. At first it is, but quickly turns to frustration. You never have enough room for things you need, and buildings don’t turn to better arrange. Their excuse for that is that it makes it more of a puzzle and that they would have to do too much work to make them turn. Everything starts to take so much to upgrade that you get stuck waiting for resources way too early on, and people do not offer fair trades at all. I finally drew the line at a requirement of many diamonds (200 I think), which you would have to buy, to do the next building upgrade. Some things that would make it better are actually upgrading buildings instead of selling and rebuilding every time, and an adjustment of how much is needed versus how much is offered in the game. This isn’t a game you can continuously play, you have to put it down-seems counter intuitive to me if you are trying to make a hit game... Also, last note, the fighting is fun but it take 2 hours to ‘recruit’ new fighters, and can only do one at a time for each type, so takes a day to build enough troops! One fight a day is no fun! I hope they put more work in and recalibrate, the idea is fun, just too frustrating.
What’s this “fight tactical battles” picture? & antiques dealer repeating junk?
by DySync on 2019/10/19 13:21
Am I missing this part of the game that on my city there could be a battle on the edges as though I’m defending my city? I have seen many other games doing this to a huge degree but does that make it even slightly reasonable or okay? Well I guess we all have to decide the line of being and speaking lies. Lol One more thing: Why so much repetition in the antiques dealer? There are thousands of possible items end yet never an event upgrade for any main event buildings. But there is a menagerie of the day... it’s a good place to showcase the awesome stuff that can be gained in game play- create want in newer players and greed in Kings of Empires. Or repeat the same stuff we are currently selling and bore the lot. For an app I play then any other ever I would put 5 stars for holding my attention and making a game enjoyable. Not to mention beautiful. There are times the great ideas that created UI and UX are an amazing spectacle and when that’s the case(like FOE) please stick the top with simple decisions. Basically keep your finger prints off my faberge eggs! Happy forging!
I don’t know about this game...
by unknown.................!! on 2019/04/16 18:22
I’m not trying to judge I just started playing this game but I think it’s expensive and it’s kind of boring to me and what can you even do you might say yea it’s just a noob but seriously after the tutorial what can you do produce stuff and that’s it I was lost but I have been reading the other reviews and haven’t even Contributed ever but I believe in the reviews and it says you need fixed the game and then we can everything expensive because it is why would you need an expansion for 200 diamonds also I don’t like how I need to Tutorial. They waste your diamonds for you I think you should have a choice because if you’re going to make everything so expensive with diamonds why should you spend 100 for ya And as this and as he said diamonds are very important so you just want people to pay for more some some people don’t want to waste money on a game so I think you should waste the money for them not money not even many diamonds but the damage in the game I like money but as I was saying I don’t know about the game because well it’s expensive it’s kind of boring and what can you do just Produce things I don’t mean maybe you should give it more than just one little tweak
Just another “free” game
by Blackhawk1019 on 2018/08/30 06:18
Like all the other 1 star reviews I have encountered all the same problems with this game. It does start off really good, but as you progress the game get almost impossible to do anything because you are moved to new neighborhoods with players at levels much higher the yours. If you don’t spend money to buy diamonds your progression will be unbearably long. I get attacked over 6 times a day by players at higher levels and they steal you production items. I asked the developer about how I keep getting attacked by higher level players and got a generic response of how I should collect my items right when they are done with production. Somehow player know to attack within 5 minutes of production being completed. Fair warning that this game is far from free even though the developer says it is possible with out spending money. Getting attacked constantly is frustrating enough to make you want to purchase the upgrade. Note to developer no need to write a response because I know how to contact you and your answer is already noted above. I know I can purchase city shields to stop the attacks. Now let’s see what kind of generic response the developer can come up with as to how they can solve all the above problems.
Broken endgame
by houseofpwncakes on 2019/05/02 13:53
Promising game with great music, graphics, and design. Frequent events with fun rewards that are manageable if you're a free-to-play player. The devs have clearly worked very hard on their product. Unfortunately, once you reach the contemporary era the game is completely unplayable for free players. PvP is forced on and there's no shield for getting raided; I have screenshots of 10 raids in a single day on my base (and each raid allows a player to loot your production buildings, preventing you from looting them yourself). Pay players will frequently attack you with armies that are 200% boosted by premium bases, using one troop 3-4 ages ahead of yours and 7 rogues (poorly balanced unit that automatically copies another unit in your army when it's attacked). Basically, there's no defense for free players against getting raided back to back with armies that are ages ahead of theirs and three times as boosted until all of their buildings are unusable. This happened basically every day for a month or two until I had to stop playing. Looking forward to a potential fix in the future because the game was otherwise designed with a lot of love.
Free to download, not free to play
by Mr. Coral on 2019/05/16 06:22
I have played this game a month or so and I always wait a bit to write a review. I was forced to write this review because this game ai has decided I needed to write something great about this game or give feedback. So to be transparent, this is what I submitted in my ticket to support.// This game is not free to play, maybe free to download but definitely not free to play. This game has many trips and falls all designed to get you to purchase diamonds in order to advance (let’s be realistic, its pay to play). This is not a strategy game, this is a build game of which I now feel hostage to do bi-daily maintenance on in order to not be plundered by much bigger opponents. Also, I cannot even do or complete daily events without being forced to use diamonds. I also cannot battle without using diamonds to replenish troops loses, unless I prefer to wait a tremendous amount of time to so-called play for free. I honestly believe this game is boring! I have played many mobile games through the years and this is the worst game I have played. I don’t see mayself playing this game much longer. Also, do I really need to have 10 plus accounts just to play 1 solid account and be able to advance in this game? I don’t think I do.
Frustrating on mobile
by Bhjsbbah on 2017/10/24 16:15
I like games of patience. This one is promising but when I started, my story quests were hindered by an internal error and by the time support fixed it, I was way ahead of the story quests and would have to do them after I already did them, which wastes time and resources. My name and profile seems to be that of an old man. I asked them to change it because I couldn't (it's the first quest) due to the internal error. It wasn't fixed. **update** I'm not stuck on the first quest. I'm stuck on the other quests because by the time the first quest was fixed, I was way ahead and have to basically redo everything I've already done. Like... Build 3 Stilt Houses. Why would I build 3 stilt houses when my population lives in tile roof houses and chalets? I lack the space and my population can't go down as they are all being used for production. Waste of time and resources. Makes it frustrating. I am, however, stuck in progressing in research because of a bug. I've researched and unlocked militia, but the game is saying I need to research it to progress. It also didn't give me the soldier barracks that came with completing the block. That's a serious bug or glitch. I did contact support. We'll see if they are any help.
HORRIBLE SUPPORT
by grideraaron on 2018/02/27 15:41
The game is a ton of fun while you can play it. I got banned because they claimed my kids were feeding me and avoiding the rest of the game. I have 5 kids who can verify different; we made in game trades for goods, blueprints, and forge points that were fair and according to the rules. They donated about 5k forge points and i gave them about 1k forge points back along with over 10k goods for a bunch of different ages. The rules are not based on actual facts, but rather the opinion of any given moderator at any given time. This is unfortunate, but ohh well. I would have given 1 star because of support, but the game is really fun. Update: well as expected there was no change even after they wasted my time. They should have just dropped it with my post. My kids wanted to keep playing but they wont unban them as they stated they are “only in iron age and it wont take them long to get back.” 3 of them had arcs and a few terrace farms. I don’t think the support people know how to play their own game. It took my kids 3-6months to get all the bps and it took me another month to donate fps to get the goods for them. The support is laughable at best. Lowering my stars to 1 for the way they treated my kids and will have my 2 older leave a review.
Worth the effort and it takes some effort
by Orofinogal on 2019/06/12 15:03
This game seems rather boring at first and is often hard to understand what is expected. Some information is available on the forums but to a newbie that can all be Greek! Once available find a good supportive guild! That is the most important thing. They should help you with your forge points, great buildings and answer questions. There is much more to this game than meets the eye so be patient! I also enjoy being able to have 2 or later 3 worlds and towns. Also visit other players towns often and see what they are doing. This will give you insight and you can ask your guild members questions about what you see. Great game but I will say that in order to progress you will need to purchase diamonds occasionally. I figure it is pretty cheap entertainment. Use the diamonds for play and don’t spend them unless you really consider the importance of your purchase. Then they are a good investment. Have fun!
Better reconstruction mechanics required
by T-Man135 on 2020/02/29 10:59
Adore the game I probably log on about 4 times a day, loving the saint patties days event, it’s really helping me move up quickly in the game!! wich I love I’ve had the game for like 4 days and I’m already on the Iron Age! not certain if that’s fast or not. I just thought it would’ve taken longer but I’m pleased to say it didn’t. but to the point of the review, I gave the game 3 stars in hopes it would catch an eye of a developer. Obviously, the way your empire is arranged is very important to the game I learned that day one. But to move buildings around to try to change your empire for the better it takes a significant amount of space, a feature to where you can move all your buildings into your inventory and start from scratch on your empire would really help the player move buildings to where I want them to be an overall redesign his or her empire for the better! And I’m my own opinion make the game 5 stars worth of fun! If this gets a response from a developer not only will it prove that y’all listen to players but I will change my rating :)
Fun to play
by Davidk8203 on 2019/06/30 04:56
I have played for months now. I have a sweet city and pvp all the time. I haven't spent a dime on the game and I have over 4k diamonds to spend if needed. People are whiners. This game is a lot of fun whether you want to build your city, fight others or chat. They have regular special events to get special buildings for questing. I only installed it to get a freebie on another game. That game was deleted months ago and I still play this. Joining a guild is easy and super beneficial. Try it. You will get hooked. P.S. People who think you must buy diamonds to play are not giving the game a chance and should probably find a different game. Maybe one with no challenge or strategy. People who spend diamonds will still get beat up by higher players because they are newbs. Slow down and develop your city and you won’t get attacked successfully as often. Ignore the trolls saying you have to pay to play. Try it for a week and find out for yourself.
7 Year Veteran - originally a 5 and now a 2
by 7 Year Player on 2019/02/25 09:42
I have been playing for 7 years and considering discontinuing due to the increasing expense needed to play the game. The #1 trick they use to consume yourDiamonds is the cost to auto click and eliminate 100 plus moves. No big deal to not spend 5 diamonds sale on and click your self but by the time your in the Arctic phase you have to click 100s of time. even if you do pay it still makes you click 100 times because the auto clicks is too simple and does ask a few basic questions that would allow them to do more of the work for you. There seems to be also fewer player than in the past so there is less available trades. Another reason to finally call It a day. I think they have gotten 100s of dollars over 7 years most in the past year. I don’t mind spending some money but I would have expected logical improvements to like I described above in return for my funds. As one of your most loyal clients I am guessing I will not get a response or taken seriously but I am likely a conduit for many other original players who are thinking of bailing.
Ok game until
by Rich121070 on 2018/11/17 11:51
The game is somewhat fun until you get to a certain age and are attacked and looted incessantly by man children who won’t level because they’re so large they can attacked anyone and plunder them without fear of retailing. The game caters to this. There is no requirement to level up so these people sit there and make themselves rich and you miserable on a daily basis and the developers love this. It’s like you high school football team having to play multiple NFL teams everyday. And their wonderful response to this will be “you can get a shield” which means you have to spend over a week collecting “visits” to your tavern from 80 or more friends on a daily basis for the pleasure of being left alone for a few days. Or pick up your loot on time which turns you into an anxiety ridden mess setting alarms and stopping whatever the thing you’re doing in real life because they allow some over grown a holes with no lives of their own to constantly feed off you instead of enforcing them to level and take on people at their own level. This is a constant theme of all their games and I’m extremely tired of them.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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!
Pretty neat game.
by Gore88 on 2018/08/12 06:01
I’ve only been playing for about 24 hours or so. I’ll update after a week or so of playing but so far. I’m enjoying this game. Don’t look at it as a pay to win bc honestly, what mobile games aren’t? Just sit back and relax, and enjoy the ride. It’s normal when it comes to the building but still different than Clash of Clans or other base simulator games. I like that you can actually strategize battles and it’s even on a honeycomb battlefield! I personally enjoy honeycomb battlefields and happy to see this game has it. Think Fire Emblem. And if you haven’t played Fire Emblem, you’re missing out. Especially if you don’t at least give this game a try. I’m looking forward to progressing through the ages regardless of the time it may take and even considering becoming a volunteer for them. With that said, hope you give this game a try with an open mind and patience.
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!
Facebook Problem
by tekarakatz123 on 2019/08/28 13:41
You need to remove the ability to link to Facebook or make it so if players who do it that it truly does create a real account. Jumping threw hoops to fix a game when I am a new player only for months to end up with a glitched game even you can’t fix was not a fun experience. I ended up giving up after five months even though I loved the game because you kept finding a new problem each time and you were never even able to register my account when you tried several times. Each time I was asked the same questions and I answered the same. No support could fix my account but many tried. Removed game since it is broken. Why play a broken account even the developer can’t fix. Update to your response: It is not worth contacting support again they said it can’t be fixed and stoped responding a few days ago. If I knew in the beginning of April of 2019 what I know now I could have just just made a new game and not wasted my money on the broken one when I first joined. Customer support is horrible and all I want to do is help fix this amazing game I fell in love with.
Originally loved this game
by Grimvar Regis on 2020/05/05 02:39
For a game that I originally loved, I find this problematic. I spent over 2 months, gathering and workin when I could. Then this last update removed every bit of progress I’ve made. I have tried to find a way to contact support, but when I have, they tried to link it to my email rather than apple. I never previously linked it to anything aside from apple, and was nearing early middle age status. No, I don’t play the game every fifteen minutes, but the support system should be better after updates, and the password should correlate with the given email or apple account, yet it doesn’t. Two months lost on work for early middle ages, and those who play after me may play more, and its a good game, but warned of the risk. I was a few supplies and trades from multistory housing. Edit: Yall fixed the issue very quickly. Thank you!
Amazing just a big problem
by ratatatcat on 2020/02/23 17:03
I love this game, it is one of the most amzing games I have ever played, but the one big problem is that it takes forever to do anything unless you have diamonds, diamonds can be got by doing quests or from buildings or events, you can also buy them. But it is really hard to get them without buying them. So unless you spend a lot of money (diamonds don’t cost much but you need a lot of them) you will not make that much progress. As said otherwise it is an amazing game. I have read a few reviews and I read a few developer’s responses and I think they are terrible, some people are talking about real problems and the developers are saying to “contact the support staff” to help them, that is not good, the developers should really know how to fix the problem, also I read a response that said “it is possible to get all the buildings without paying real money” that is true but for the 400 diamond buildings it would take a real long time.
Great game with some minor downsides
by s.haus on 2019/11/12 01:50
Just recently began playing this game and honestly love nearly everything about it......with a few exceptions. I play 90% through the mobile app, and I do wish I had some of the same controls/features that are available on the desktop version. I hate that I cannot check on my guilds activity unless I am on the desktop, as well as I cannot see who in my guild made a particular trade or donated to the treasury unless I’m on the desktop. I also wish guild founders/leaders had more control over their guild in general. For example if there is a member who accidentally (or intentionally to be annoying) posts something, there is no way to get rid of it. As the guild leader, there should be a way to control these things, otherwise there is no way of enforcing rules of the guild other than simply kicking members who don’t comply. Other than minor things like this the game is fantastic.
Great Idea, Sometimes Poor Performance
by anameyoulltake on 2018/05/23 13:09
The concepts in this game are great except two things: 1) The game is advertised as a strategy game but it’s really a game of chance. Many games have a store where one can trade in coins, gems, whatever but in this game there’s nothing equivalent and you usually win a chance to win something rather than the something. 2) The game is extremely slow, glitchy, laggy during high use times. The game sits and sits or boots you out or screens don’t update and show that you’re actually being attacked which is very frustrating when you’re sitting there watching and trying to defend. You have to constantly refresh or flip between screens during these times in order to get them to update. This happens a lot at daily recalc, a critical play time. If the game were more strategy and less chance and it worked right at times the games makes critical, it would be a great game.

Mostly good
by xtp10 on 2020/12/01 04:14
Great game in terms of long term developmental play. Complex system of rewards and different game “currencies” makes it an excellent strategic game. Unfortunately like most on line multi player games it still has elements where the bigger/stronger you are the more you can steal from the weaker players. Too many game developers like to encourage the bullies instead of encouraging team work and positive growth.
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.
Me
by Elani 1971 on 2020/11/30 19:34
Fun game if you don’t mind waiting months and years to have ENOUGH MONEY IN THE GAME to do anything once you’ve gotten past level 5..... so if you have nothing else to do... download this game and waste all your life waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting to get the billion trillion dollars OF THE MONEY IN THE GAME!!! you need to build a shack after you get past level 5... Why does it take so so so so much of the games money to build ANYTHING after level 5?? I deleted it cause I was waiting way too too too too long just to get enough of the games credits to do anything!!!
Slow loading
by Boopymr on 2020/11/30 00:34
This game has become annoyingly slow to load. Not worth the two minutes to get started every time on an ipad
Rigged Daily Challenges
by Mr. Humphreys on 2020/11/29 15:19
I have played this game in the past and loved it, including the daily challenges, but now the challenges are rigged so that you either have to pay hundreds of diamonds or are forced to engage in impossible battles to win. My question is why would break something that worked just fine? Oh wait that’s right Greed and not the desire to make a fair honest game. The LOVE of money is the root of all evil F.O.E.
In game support
by Increase Territory on 2020/11/29 08:52
Update: Finally deleted game for good; so disappointing. If you are a new player, be warned, Lady Marlena in support is a nightmare; unprofessional and rude. Someone in my guild posted that we are allowed to use FoE helper so i downloaded it and once i did, i was banned but once i removed FoE helper, the ban was removed. I contacted in game support and the community manager "Lady Marlena;" from in game support responded she could not give details so she did not answer my question on why i was banned for using FoE helper but not others. I am feeling i was singled out for a reason and i still do not know why. In the years i have played, i have spent over $1,000 on Forge of Empires and i have always played by the rules and never been banned until now. I am back on the game after i removed FoE helper but i only downloaded it bc others said it was okay to use. I want to know why i was banned but not others who even post in global chat that they use FoE helper but no one in in game support will give me a straightforward answer to as to why. In game support answers in vague responses and this "Lady Marlena," what others have posted about her is true; she is rude. Instead of answering my question or escalating case to someone who could answer or help me; she closed my ticket. I should have a right to know why i was banned but not others when i invested so much money and time into Forge of Empires. With all the money INNO makes from us, you would think they woud have better people working in game support.
I play like an hour straight
by guardian kingdoms on 2020/11/28 19:29
I love this graphics, I love this game, and I love pretty much anything about this game however, I don’t usually play this game for a couple minutes every hour or so, I play this game for like an hour straight. This game isn’t one of those games where you can do that and it’s still very fun. If this game was one of those then I would give it a 5 star rating instead of just 4 stars. So it’s not that fun when you “have” to play it that way.
More fun to smash your thumb with a hammer
by ihatebillgates on 2020/11/28 04:13
I plead with you.....do not download or ever play any game made by INNO. They will steal from you. I played FOE for two years and was a top contender until I got tired of them double charging me on a regular basis. So I quit. Gave it all up. Today, I thought I would give it another chance. Guess what? They already double charged me again and are not willing to refund me. I’ve been down this road before with these guys. They didn’t even wait 24 hours to rip me off this time. Do your self a favor. Stay away from anything INNO. Just go out to the garage, find a hammer and smash all the fingers on your left hand. Same same as dealing with INNO

Game keeps crashing after Halloween update

Game crashes on fire tablet all the time and on iPhone ever since the new update it’s been horrible!!!!! Uninstalled and reinstalled numerous times still crashes!!!!
Like grass growing
by htrefbdhdf on 2020/11/25 19:26
It is much more fun to watch grass growing than to play this game. The developers did everything to make the progress as slow as possible. Waiting time for simple resources is measured in hours with nothing to do in the meantime. Worse, the game is open ended with no clear goal that would define a winner. There is also excessive randomness in the game events so one cannot really develop any sensible strategy. There is no competition despite the fact that the total number of participants supposedly runs into thousands. One is aware of existence of some, but interactions are fleeting increasing the feeling of other wordiness. Finally, it is a total mystery how playing the game benefits participants, it does not require analytical or strategic skills, just mindless waiting for something to happen. Read a book, learn playing guitar, solve sudoku puzzles, do anything that enriches you rather than wasting your neurons on this pointless exercise.
Game locking up
by Dianacoo on 2020/11/25 16:39
I play on an iPhone 7. Game just freezes mid battles, mid tavern visits, kicks me out completely. I’ve freed phone space, delete ted and reloaded game constantly, shut down and rebooted internet. Nothing works.
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.
Not fun. Also just another scam
by N A T H A N1617 on 2020/11/24 18:25
The title is all I have to say. Just place ads in appropriate places within the game. Don’t make people pay 100s of dollars just to complete a stupid mobile game. This game would awesome if it didn’t take an eternity to complete. Also I never got the diamonds I purchased (Umm ok lol). And I realize it’s not easy making these type of games so yeah respect anyways. (To much dopamine in the world, Nah I’m sayin?)
Slow start and boring
by RichDBT on 2020/11/24 11:25
This game is dull and boring. The quests become impossible in a really short amount of time playing. Your growth quickly stagnates if you don’t purchase diamonds. It’s the same money pit paradigm as many other games. I’m done with these “free” games from now on.
Why I love this game a little bit 👌
by summer alz on 2020/11/22 22:50
Why I love this game a little bit because am a beginner and there’s a problem if I buy a building that coast diamonds then if I sell it I can’t get the diamonds back but I love this game to because you can fight and get rewards and you can build a city and do other fun stuff even my dad loves this game so much and you can chat with other to I don’t now even now but I like the game and I’m still a beginner so I don’t now so much of the game but so if you love you so the ad you should download it it’s so much fun👌😄.
Don’t believe the developers
by Gabeturman on 2020/11/20 07:27
Not only have I played this game on two different accounts because they lost my data but I’ve read many reviews that ignore people’s experiences and say that you don’t have to spend money to play this. The economy in game is way too unbalanced. It costs hundreds of diamonds every where but the packs to buy are woefully inadequate. I could spend fifty dollars on one pack to get 4000 and they’d be gone in game like twice. Another thing is the raiding. I am attacked and my resources drained. I cannot block this because my tavern isn’t high enough level. So I’m high enough to be looted but not enough to defend? I also can’t advance in research because I cannot get the resources and I’m not paying money to get something I should be able to research. Resources shouldn’t be difficult to get. This game is designed to make you pay no matter how they sell it. Don’t bother downloading.
BUG!!!👾👾PLEASE FIX!!!
by Just_Nathan_27 on 2020/11/20 00:21
So far this game has been amazing and super fun to play in my off time. But recently there has been this weird bug on my Viking settlement. The mead brewery hast been working!! Before, it just took a while for the info to pop up, but now when ever I tap on it to make some mead, it reloads my page and takes my back to the login screen. I’m just 20 mead short and it’s stopping me from completing this settlement!!! PLEASE FIX!!

There is a glitch
by mac2636 on 2020/11/16 21:04
The problem is, when I try to press the complete button on a quest with the lady with blue eyes and a red bandana on her head (I forgot her name) it freezes. Please fix this, I don’t know if this is happening with anyone else, I may just need to restart my iPad, I don’t know. If you find any bugs in the script like that, please try to fix it.
Love it...

If you play on an Ipad ..Skip it!
by Dansbeloved on 2020/11/10 23:23
I have played this game 7+ yrs. They added a new format. I have a NEW Ipad, plenty of memory, updated IOS. You can be in the middle of an activity in FoE. It CONSTANTLY crashes, freezes, spontaneously reboots and reloads. Contacts with tech support, they suggest the same tired trouble shooting. Uninstall.. reinstall. Were I a new player, I’d just UNINSTALL and move ON!
Meh
by Zykroft on 2020/11/10 13:01
Do you like putting LOTS of time into a game only to find out that higher level, more powerful players, in your neighborhood can incessantly raid you? Do you enjoy the frustration of working on a game only to have what you need to advance be taken by other players? Do you enjoy spending lots of money on “quests”? Then this is the game for you!! Basically expect to pay money to stay relevant and expect to be raided by other players ALL the time. They say the “neighborhood” changes but it usually doesn’t it’s extremely frustrating, I’ve contemplated quitting many times and probably will one day when I’ve had enough.

by I Have Joy in My Life! on 2020/11/09 02:29
I have been playing this game for about 6 months at this point, so now I feel confident enough to review it. This game is not fast paced, nor is it meant to be. Of course, like any other game, if you spend money on it, you will progress farther. Everything is overpriced. I agree with that. But you can move forward without paying a cent if you are patient! That being said, I love the game play. There is no shortage of things to keep you busy, including •Guild Expeditions: negotiate or fight your way through the jungle to win fantastic prizes! •Guild Battlegrounds: compete against other guilds for dominance! •Cultural Settlements: build a new city! •Guild v. Guild: compete against all the guilds on your server in a military only competition •Finally, my favorite part is just chatting with guild mates and making a city! My advice for new players: find a good guild, that is how you will grow! Most guilds are happy to accept you if you will try hard Thanks for reading this, my one request to Inno is that they put GVG on mobile! Currently this big game play mode is only on PC and the people that play on mobile are missing out big time! 😊thanks for reading
Statistical cheat
by Disappointed10011 on 2020/11/08 14:12
Game lays out several probabilities for success. I have tracked multiple of these over time and every single one underperforms. To the point that this can only be intentional as this is statistically improbable. Do not trust this game

I was playing it for a while I signed into my Facebook account through it and I got to where I was building and I got to the construction part and it kicked me out and I went back through my Facebook and it just started me all over and that was annoying so I deleted the application maybe it can be fixed and I’ll come back just scared it’ll do it again. Thank you

Great game but one major limitation
by weasel1999 on 2020/11/05 04:17
This game requires team work and thoughtful strategy. Just one major limitation. It has a guild verse guild element that is offered only on your desktop yet counts the most heavily towards the guild’s ranking. Either remove it from the game or offer it to be played on mobile devices as well.
So far it’s enjoyable
by Rolling snake on 2020/11/04 12:55
I just reached the High Middle Ages. I wanted to play for a while before commenting. So here goes. I think this is a fun and enjoyable game. Yes it’s tedious at times. Collect coins and goods so you can move build or upgrade. But that’s the point of the game. Don’t be in a big hurry. There’s always something you can doing. Conquering provinces, fighting in quests, ect. Yes diamonds are precious and hard to get. But if your in a hurry, buy some. It’s not that expensive. I don’t mind buying a few now and then. Mainly to support the developers. These games cost money to develop and maintain. So a few dollars help these companies to keep developing them. As long as your not in a hurry, you can go as you want. I enjoy the game. Gives me some entertainment during my downtime
Good and fun
by cowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwss on 2020/11/03 20:33
However, can you do a deal like 10 diamonds for watching an ad? The ad could refresh code however, can you do a deal like 10 diamonds for watching an ad? The ad could refresh every five minutes. Also, giving it four stars because I feel it can be expanded on, and paying 2400 supplies for five tickets for the special event is just 😡
Good game
by Haddie D Hernandez on 2020/11/03 00:06
You can build,fight,trade and more! You freind other players to trade with them and you can claim land for new resources, expand your life empire level up and get to new ages. When you level up you get new things like theater or the courthouse. Overall I think it’s a good game. GAME ON!!!
Great but . . .
by 172120 on 2020/11/02 15:12
Overall the game is great. You don’t need to spend a dime to progress, just be smart in trading items. My only concern is the placing of the “finish now button” where I always accidentally press making me spend diamonds unintentionally. Can the developers try to make that button smaller? Maybe it was strategize by the game. I don’t know. But like I said, it’s a great game.✌🏻
Support that doesn’t
by Regrets about FOE on 2020/11/02 13:48
Recently had an issue with using a program that (as advertised) helps with some of the data collection for this game. Nowhere in any forums is it suggested that there are illegal programs that are banned by FOE. No list exists. Just a very vague reference to bots. After notification from FOE, I tried to ascertain where I was being illegal, mind you there was no clarification from the powers that be, that X, Y or Z or illegal. So finally figure it out, they say great and we carry on. 14 days later they tell me I’m still illegal. I go through the process of cleaning my drive and slicing the cache, no success. They put my game in time out. Finally after a few days they suggest I check extensions. Bingo, clear them and FOE will not lift ban. I did everything they requested in a timely manner, this was a first offense. Do not play this game. The Powers on the other side of a screen or unapologetic about not wishing to help a player.
It’s a good game which a little problem......
by anoymouse 555555 on 2020/11/01 16:10
The game is fun just it gets a little complicated all of the stuff that pops up and the more you get into the game is the mora that a bunch of stuff pops up and says this and that.

No need to pay to play
by gtb1968 on 2020/10/31 04:04
I was reading some of the reviews. I would like to say as a player of over five years. If you don’t want to spend money on this game you never have to. There is no quest, event or any other part of this game that requires you to spend money. What this game does require is patience and strategy. I don’t know how many people play this game but there are many players that will help you become a better player, all you have to do is ask. I recommend joining a guild as soon as possible as this gives you a team to work with and reduces time for production of troops and gives you many other advantages. It upsets me that many people have said bad things about this game that I love to play. This game is not for everyone. Thank you for a great game, A loyal long term player.
So far it’s broken, kind of?
by Asdfgfdfgh on 2020/10/30 15:16
Just a few days in, the dumb “story” tells me to click on the “+” (plus sign) at top center, IT DOES NOT WORK.Also I am guided by the game to spend all my “free” diamonds on the first day, with little chance for growth unless I spend $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$?. Fix the former problem or you won’t get the latter $$!

Typical pay to win crap
by A6779 on 2020/10/29 21:08
I get these types of games require patience but this is too much. Unless you're willing to spend money often you could be stuck for weeks. To add too the insult, the players who have spent a couple thousand, like to attack and steal supplies from your buildings. Sad part is, the game isn’t a war game, it’s not a competition, but money is the only part they care about, so the credit card warriors will get their way every time.
Why it dose it waste

Game freezes 10 times per hour

Game freezes 10 times per hour of play on ios. FoE Support couldn’t help and acknowledged they sometimes have trouble with ios.
Pretty suspicious
by connhen on 2020/10/28 11:43
The game itself is fine. Nothing special, but it was a good time waster, but the issue with it is how as soon as I impulsively bought a micro transaction, my account was logged out, my password didn’t work anymore, and I couldn’t get it back. I don’t normally buy micro transactions at all, but to be completely erased as soon as I give some money feels like being spit at in the face. Part of me feels like this is just a way to get me to get another micro transaction to get back my progress.

This is not a game!
by Lanthoran the Unseen on 2020/10/26 00:11
This is just a pit to throw money at. Your better off gambling! There is no real set of guidelines for it to even be considered a game. If you have lots of money, you can be the most powerful of all. But you never actually win, so not a game. I’ve been trying to delete my account but customer service must just be a bunch monkeys throwing poop at each other.
Account lose
by AIRPIKACHU15 on 2020/10/24 16:56
The game is really good, but I gave it a Four Star because my first account got deleted because I didn’t play the game for a month because I was grounded. So if you do get this game make sure you log in at least once per week if you want your account to stay. Game developers please fix this.
Sir Game Critic
by AnnoyedByInfoRelease on 2020/10/24 03:27
There was a time games were created to be enjoyable experiences. Today the in app craze has turned developers into greedy scam artists trying to get rich quick. No longer is developing a game about providing a joyful entertaining experience for customers that you value, it is a ever more convoluted digression into scamming your way into big $$$. Stay away from this game!
Ok, bit too much waiting, slow to expand
by jarrod86 on 2020/10/24 02:24
Even when spending a little money, expansion of city is slow or limited. Consequently, it gets a bit dull waiting for others to build you up or award medals.

Really great and fun game!
by LordsMobile on 2020/10/22 18:04
I have played this game for a while now and absolutely love it! It’s super fun to go through the ages and build great buildings. Guilds in the game are all super helpful and supportive of you. The Guild expeditions are amazing and GBG is super fun! However, the combat is a little confusing and I wish the game would explain a little better in what units counter what. Also In my opinion I feel like the event quests are a smidge too hard. Like there all doable but are very difficult. I hope that in the future they become just a little easier. Nothing crazy but just like more reasonable.
Great if you like garbage
by adkc llc on 2020/10/22 16:05
I “played” this for about 2 months now and deleting. It’s a typical trash game that just wants you to buy diamonds. Was hoping to find a game like age of empire as I love strategy games and this is certainly not about strategy, just about trying to get you to spend money on a buggy, garbage game

Why I deleted the game...
by headless haunter on 2020/10/20 17:19
The reason why I deleted this game because I lost all of my progress after I haven’t used it for so long so please fix this and I’ll download this game again!
Extremely disappointed
by gLDreW on 2020/10/20 04:35
I had hours and hours of gameplay. I simply didn’t log in for maybe a month or so after playing every single day for over a year. They deleted my account. All progress lost and money spend in game lost. I was told that I didn’t have enough “diamonds” to get back what I lost. Ridiculous. My family and I were sick from the pandemic and I’m unable to play yet all my progress deleted because of that? Definitely getting 1 star for how this has been handled. Especially after reaching out to support and then telling me “ sorry we can’t help you because you were inactive too long”. Update: still denied access and will never download this game again. To not download unless you can play every single day.
best app ever

by Dparikh on 2020/10/18 20:47
I have played this game for 2 weeks and I think it is one of the best games I’ve ever played.There are minor problems but they are small.The minor problems are diamonds cost money,and you need diamonds for many things,and supplies are harder to get than gold coins even though you have to use them more .But other than that it is a great game.
Good game

Purchase Failure
by RavenGinger on 2020/10/12 16:03
I purchased a pkg of diamonds with 85 bonus forge points. The forge points disappeared after being there for 15 minutes. Why would they show up and just disappear? I don’t want to read your Help suggestions or mess around asking questions. The diamonds are still there, so there is no reason the bonus forge points should disappear. I want a complete refund, and I don’t care if the purchase is still pending. If pending is such an important issue, then why are the diamonds still there? FIX IT!
Good
by Schnoppz on 2020/10/11 22:47
Needs some work for more compact placement of homes and towers need capabilities of shifting platforms. Wait time for upgrades are extremely long especially when you just start playing you need to keep the player interested and more productive wait time needs to be cut to keep player productive.

In app purchases is too extreme
by Write2genius on 2020/10/10 20:16
This game abuses in app purchases a LOT. After few days it is impossible to play unless you spend some real money. Or else it will take one week for a single upgrade. This is just too extreme. If they would keep it more reasonable I would have continued playing and also made some more purchases. But at this rate, I am just quitting this game, because you get nowhere even if you pay few hundred dollars on game purchases. You should be ready to pay few thousand bucks to even become competitive.
Worth it !!!
by Nas.x0 on 2020/10/09 05:29
Definitely worth it! I’ve had this app and actively play it for a month now and I love it!
Significant program error and deficiencies
by geologist2 on 2020/10/08 17:34
The Expedition is significantly flawed. A) The heal function does not work properly. I have attempted to heal units individually and inmass unsuccessful, costing me units. These losses are unacceptable. B) The program is badly flawed. There are increasing event of “locking up during play”. C) During play in the Egyptian Realm, several times I have been awarded “pickles to remove obstacles “, but they were not available for use. They disappeared! During combat, results from the second difficulty level are bias. I have lost the entire army there, then used the same units at level three and succeeded. If the difficulty level is reflected in the points and rewards, there is a flaw in the programs operations. This is not an isolated occurrence. ***** Increasingly I am finding the Game unsatisfactory. *** The costs vs enjoyment of play are becoming unreasonable. There is a measure of inflexibility in addressing “Forum” comments, modifying Game performance, adding flexibility to positioning of buildings ( rotations as a general feature, not as a reward), ease of acquiring land and allowing Great Building to be advanced UNIFORMLY. There is a stall in increasing performances at my current level that makes FP essentials useless. There are guild members and friends that are commenting negatively about the Games performance and responses to problems. Keep in mind, word of mouth influences consumer spending.

Nearly impossible to add land
by aNNOYing533 on 2020/10/07 11:41
After a certain starting phase it becomes nearly impossible to grow the size of your city without paying big $$. A frustrating waste of time.
Great Game but...
by Ancient Hero on 2020/10/07 11:29
I love this game, it reminds me of age of civilizations and is very stimmy from my autistic viewpoint. However! I am more peaceful, I travel through the ages without attacking much (aside from special events if I don’t have the goods to do the trade). As such I have had another player bullying me for about two weeks now. They would plunder me every two days just to steal my iron. So I stopped producing iron, then I stopped producing everything. Because they just kept attacking me. And this player was obviously out of my league. Massive military that the only way I could beat him was to channel money I DON’T HAVE in some pay to win bull crap. If there is one change I would make, it would be the option to turn off people attacking your village. Especially when it ruins the fun of players who just want to be peaceful. In short, upon receiving an email that my account was about to be deleted? I wasn’t even upset. Because yeah sure, that’s probably how you guys get money. But it ruined the experience for me. So thanks for nothing.
Game crashed and deleted my world
by Alcnoangel on 2020/10/07 06:12
I have been playing this game off and on for about six months. Liked the layout and design along with the challenge to accomplish some objectives. Very disappointed in the way this game locked up when attempting to use a upgrade feature. In reloading the game, discovered I was bounced from the server. Logged back into Game Center account and my journey was deleted. Time invested in this not worthy of playing a second time.
Having fun but room for improvement
by I LOVE THIS GAME!!, on 2020/10/07 04:46
Would be nice if the FP bar would allow more than 100 capacity. Why does it even need to be capped? Doesn’t seem to serve any real purpose. Would be nice to have higher friends list cap as well. Thanks Inno! Keep up the good work, time consuming game but lots of fun and gives me a sense of accomplishment!

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.
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.
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.
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.
Welp

Well, it was a good game. I played up until the colonial age and i built the SoZ (people who play the game will know what I’m talking about) but i had just built that i also had the CdM, LoA, ToB, and the colosseum but right after i built the SoZ i got off the game and I tried to get on it a few hours later and the game refused to log me in. Like it just wouldn’t let me. I tried restarting the internet to see if that was the problem, nope, found out it needed an update. So I updated it like usual thinking that was the problem but it still wouldn’t work. So I tried changing the country i was in to see if that did anything, it made me login with my apple id but then none of the worlds i had (i had 2) showed up. And it’s a real bummer because i was doing really good also, getting 30 FPs every day, was in a really great guild and i had a group chat with all the friends i have on there and it was really helpful because everyone helped one another it seemed like people had everything you needed to make a GB. But the game crashed or something, I probably will play it again but not for a real long time. Edit: like a day after i made this review the game fixed its self soo yeah good game 👌
Disappointed
by Diane Villela on 2018/12/09 16:02
This seemed like a cool game going threw the different ages I reached the Iron Age and realized creators are way too money hungry everything at some point costs diamonds I needed land to place things it costs 200 diamonds each for the first two which I felt was a little too much but I gave it the benefit of he doubt! I have to admit I spend money on this game but it didn’t last long at all. When I reached Iron Age I got two more slots available using diamonds and only one as free. I thought okay the first two were 200 diamonds each I’ll just purchase 400 diamonds and I’ll get these two nope I was wrong they charged 400 diamonds for one expansion. I’m going back to my other games because I wasted money time and patients on this game and I truely regret it. I have spent money in a games but if the Iron Age is 400 diamonds for one slot next Age is 800 diamonds and so on and so forth. You can’t really get a head without spending real money. I down right hate creators that purposely abuse their creation that could be cool but isn’t because they prefer making money but exploiting people just so people get a head in a game! I feel for it once but not anymore. If I could give 0 stars I would! I’m a person who doesn’t mind a few dollars here or there but I refuse to waste anymore time money or patients on creators and game who take advantage of people to this extreme.
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.
Unfair PVP
by Mac222nite on 2020/02/09 04:11
I did a review in game but just in case it doesn’t show up, avoid this game unless you like being ripped off. Player vs Player has ruined the game. Every time you get ahead a little another player takes your goods. If you have a lot of money you can BUY your way through the game or if you’re a thief you can take what you want. In my mind, the developers and thieves should be arrested in the real world. I spent REAL MONEY to get these goods and to progress in the game and they were taken from me by someone with a city and army so big that only a few players could defend themselves against. Before anyone thinks I’m a whiner, don’t worry I left and deleted my cities. Update: I deleted the city that was being attacked daily and I’m trying one more time. I like this game but this is FOE’s last chance with me. If it doesn’t get better I will leave for good. I don’t mind attacks if they are FAIR!! Higher level players should only be allowed to attack other players at the same level. Otherwise it’s robbery. INNO you said you hoped I would come back. Ok..here I am. We shall see if you truly want a fair game or not. Make PVP fair or you will lose more players than just me. Read your reviews. I’m not the only one who feels this way and I’m NOT going to BUY my way to the top.
Fun for hardcore strategy players
by free2play_player on 2020/11/25 01:45
I played this game twice once a few years ago and the other I started 6 months ago. I have to say the modern incarnation of the game is amazing and the older version bot ad much. The problem with game is that it is meant for higher leveled and more hardcore strategy game players. This means that most players that find the game bad is because it is to complicated. This is not to say that not investing every time and moment means it is not fun but looking for helpful guilds will allow you to learn all the game mechanics and advice. When I started playing the game I hopped around different guilds and until I found an active one that was not only helpful but required little to nothing to be part of. To this day I’m still in this guild and even though I’m in the top percentile of my server I still find the game not that taxing in time requirements. In fact I find myself playing the game to much which I have to say if played enough the game becomes very addictive. Overall this game is fair, rewards you, and I have yet to spend a SINGLE dollar playing it.
Forge of Empires
by janete24 on 2018/02/21 18:07
Game is boring. It’s basically a point/click/waiting game. And you do a lot of waiting to the point where you ask yourself “Am I even playing a game?” There’s no daily freebie for logging in to play. Scenery, landscapes, color in the game are dull. They do have what they call “incidents”, which are but randomly throughout the game, but you have to look everywhere, and look hard because they blend in too much with the rest of the scenery. What gets me most is you can’t expand your territory, and when you can’t expand you can’t put up buildings, and when you can’t put up buildings you can’t build, almost like you’re stuck in a corner. Then there are the challenges. You can’t fulfill them because you don’t have the buildings to build, and the reason you don’t have the buildings to build is because you don’t have the ability to expand your territory. These challenges should only be at the level you’re at, or with the resources you currently have to fulfill them. So again you’re in a corner and you can’t do anything. And the production buildings. Come on! I can only make one product at a time and it takes way too long. If the programmers are reading this “How do you earn diamonds and medals to expand your territory?”
Good but the wait though makes the game boring
by mr.l 64000 on 2019/07/17 05:51
Well it’s what you expect from a free app game. The game is just a point and wait game seriously it takes so long just to build a house even in the Bronze Age. Don’t get me started on the happiness gimmick I mean you already waste enough money and supplies on houses, supply buildings, and good buildings and how about just waste it on culture buildings and decorations. I mean I get but like I said before you already waste your money on houses and supply buildings. What I hate the most is forge points I mean why is the maximum limit 10 I mean I looked in different ages and it takes hundreds of forge points. Yeah you can buy them but whenever you buy a forge point but it gets more expensive when you buy them. Why does it take an hour just to one, there just should have been no forge points. In conclusion Forge of Empires is a good game but there cultural buildings should have been to increase supply buildings more and it should have applied to good buildings too.
Frustrating more than fun
by venuscrash24 on 2018/10/08 11:11
I really thought this would be a fun game. At first it is, but quickly turns to frustration. You never have enough room for things you need, and buildings don’t turn to better arrange. Their excuse for that is that it makes it more of a puzzle and that they would have to do too much work to make them turn. Everything starts to take so much to upgrade that you get stuck waiting for resources way too early on, and people do not offer fair trades at all. I finally drew the line at a requirement of many diamonds (200 I think), which you would have to buy, to do the next building upgrade. Some things that would make it better are actually upgrading buildings instead of selling and rebuilding every time, and an adjustment of how much is needed versus how much is offered in the game. This isn’t a game you can continuously play, you have to put it down-seems counter intuitive to me if you are trying to make a hit game... Also, last note, the fighting is fun but it take 2 hours to ‘recruit’ new fighters, and can only do one at a time for each type, so takes a day to build enough troops! One fight a day is no fun! I hope they put more work in and recalibrate, the idea is fun, just too frustrating.
What’s this “fight tactical battles” picture? & antiques dealer repeating junk?
by DySync on 2019/10/19 13:21
Am I missing this part of the game that on my city there could be a battle on the edges as though I’m defending my city? I have seen many other games doing this to a huge degree but does that make it even slightly reasonable or okay? Well I guess we all have to decide the line of being and speaking lies. Lol One more thing: Why so much repetition in the antiques dealer? There are thousands of possible items end yet never an event upgrade for any main event buildings. But there is a menagerie of the day... it’s a good place to showcase the awesome stuff that can be gained in game play- create want in newer players and greed in Kings of Empires. Or repeat the same stuff we are currently selling and bore the lot. For an app I play then any other ever I would put 5 stars for holding my attention and making a game enjoyable. Not to mention beautiful. There are times the great ideas that created UI and UX are an amazing spectacle and when that’s the case(like FOE) please stick the top with simple decisions. Basically keep your finger prints off my faberge eggs! Happy forging!
I don’t know about this game...
by unknown.................!! on 2019/04/16 18:22
I’m not trying to judge I just started playing this game but I think it’s expensive and it’s kind of boring to me and what can you even do you might say yea it’s just a noob but seriously after the tutorial what can you do produce stuff and that’s it I was lost but I have been reading the other reviews and haven’t even Contributed ever but I believe in the reviews and it says you need fixed the game and then we can everything expensive because it is why would you need an expansion for 200 diamonds also I don’t like how I need to Tutorial. They waste your diamonds for you I think you should have a choice because if you’re going to make everything so expensive with diamonds why should you spend 100 for ya And as this and as he said diamonds are very important so you just want people to pay for more some some people don’t want to waste money on a game so I think you should waste the money for them not money not even many diamonds but the damage in the game I like money but as I was saying I don’t know about the game because well it’s expensive it’s kind of boring and what can you do just Produce things I don’t mean maybe you should give it more than just one little tweak
Just another “free” game
by Blackhawk1019 on 2018/08/30 06:18
Like all the other 1 star reviews I have encountered all the same problems with this game. It does start off really good, but as you progress the game get almost impossible to do anything because you are moved to new neighborhoods with players at levels much higher the yours. If you don’t spend money to buy diamonds your progression will be unbearably long. I get attacked over 6 times a day by players at higher levels and they steal you production items. I asked the developer about how I keep getting attacked by higher level players and got a generic response of how I should collect my items right when they are done with production. Somehow player know to attack within 5 minutes of production being completed. Fair warning that this game is far from free even though the developer says it is possible with out spending money. Getting attacked constantly is frustrating enough to make you want to purchase the upgrade. Note to developer no need to write a response because I know how to contact you and your answer is already noted above. I know I can purchase city shields to stop the attacks. Now let’s see what kind of generic response the developer can come up with as to how they can solve all the above problems.
Broken endgame
by houseofpwncakes on 2019/05/02 13:53
Promising game with great music, graphics, and design. Frequent events with fun rewards that are manageable if you're a free-to-play player. The devs have clearly worked very hard on their product. Unfortunately, once you reach the contemporary era the game is completely unplayable for free players. PvP is forced on and there's no shield for getting raided; I have screenshots of 10 raids in a single day on my base (and each raid allows a player to loot your production buildings, preventing you from looting them yourself). Pay players will frequently attack you with armies that are 200% boosted by premium bases, using one troop 3-4 ages ahead of yours and 7 rogues (poorly balanced unit that automatically copies another unit in your army when it's attacked). Basically, there's no defense for free players against getting raided back to back with armies that are ages ahead of theirs and three times as boosted until all of their buildings are unusable. This happened basically every day for a month or two until I had to stop playing. Looking forward to a potential fix in the future because the game was otherwise designed with a lot of love.
Free to download, not free to play
by Mr. Coral on 2019/05/16 06:22
I have played this game a month or so and I always wait a bit to write a review. I was forced to write this review because this game ai has decided I needed to write something great about this game or give feedback. So to be transparent, this is what I submitted in my ticket to support.// This game is not free to play, maybe free to download but definitely not free to play. This game has many trips and falls all designed to get you to purchase diamonds in order to advance (let’s be realistic, its pay to play). This is not a strategy game, this is a build game of which I now feel hostage to do bi-daily maintenance on in order to not be plundered by much bigger opponents. Also, I cannot even do or complete daily events without being forced to use diamonds. I also cannot battle without using diamonds to replenish troops loses, unless I prefer to wait a tremendous amount of time to so-called play for free. I honestly believe this game is boring! I have played many mobile games through the years and this is the worst game I have played. I don’t see mayself playing this game much longer. Also, do I really need to have 10 plus accounts just to play 1 solid account and be able to advance in this game? I don’t think I do.
Frustrating on mobile
by Bhjsbbah on 2017/10/24 16:15
I like games of patience. This one is promising but when I started, my story quests were hindered by an internal error and by the time support fixed it, I was way ahead of the story quests and would have to do them after I already did them, which wastes time and resources. My name and profile seems to be that of an old man. I asked them to change it because I couldn't (it's the first quest) due to the internal error. It wasn't fixed. **update** I'm not stuck on the first quest. I'm stuck on the other quests because by the time the first quest was fixed, I was way ahead and have to basically redo everything I've already done. Like... Build 3 Stilt Houses. Why would I build 3 stilt houses when my population lives in tile roof houses and chalets? I lack the space and my population can't go down as they are all being used for production. Waste of time and resources. Makes it frustrating. I am, however, stuck in progressing in research because of a bug. I've researched and unlocked militia, but the game is saying I need to research it to progress. It also didn't give me the soldier barracks that came with completing the block. That's a serious bug or glitch. I did contact support. We'll see if they are any help.
HORRIBLE SUPPORT
by grideraaron on 2018/02/27 15:41
The game is a ton of fun while you can play it. I got banned because they claimed my kids were feeding me and avoiding the rest of the game. I have 5 kids who can verify different; we made in game trades for goods, blueprints, and forge points that were fair and according to the rules. They donated about 5k forge points and i gave them about 1k forge points back along with over 10k goods for a bunch of different ages. The rules are not based on actual facts, but rather the opinion of any given moderator at any given time. This is unfortunate, but ohh well. I would have given 1 star because of support, but the game is really fun. Update: well as expected there was no change even after they wasted my time. They should have just dropped it with my post. My kids wanted to keep playing but they wont unban them as they stated they are “only in iron age and it wont take them long to get back.” 3 of them had arcs and a few terrace farms. I don’t think the support people know how to play their own game. It took my kids 3-6months to get all the bps and it took me another month to donate fps to get the goods for them. The support is laughable at best. Lowering my stars to 1 for the way they treated my kids and will have my 2 older leave a review.
Worth the effort and it takes some effort
by Orofinogal on 2019/06/12 15:03
This game seems rather boring at first and is often hard to understand what is expected. Some information is available on the forums but to a newbie that can all be Greek! Once available find a good supportive guild! That is the most important thing. They should help you with your forge points, great buildings and answer questions. There is much more to this game than meets the eye so be patient! I also enjoy being able to have 2 or later 3 worlds and towns. Also visit other players towns often and see what they are doing. This will give you insight and you can ask your guild members questions about what you see. Great game but I will say that in order to progress you will need to purchase diamonds occasionally. I figure it is pretty cheap entertainment. Use the diamonds for play and don’t spend them unless you really consider the importance of your purchase. Then they are a good investment. Have fun!
Better reconstruction mechanics required
by T-Man135 on 2020/02/29 10:59
Adore the game I probably log on about 4 times a day, loving the saint patties days event, it’s really helping me move up quickly in the game!! wich I love I’ve had the game for like 4 days and I’m already on the Iron Age! not certain if that’s fast or not. I just thought it would’ve taken longer but I’m pleased to say it didn’t. but to the point of the review, I gave the game 3 stars in hopes it would catch an eye of a developer. Obviously, the way your empire is arranged is very important to the game I learned that day one. But to move buildings around to try to change your empire for the better it takes a significant amount of space, a feature to where you can move all your buildings into your inventory and start from scratch on your empire would really help the player move buildings to where I want them to be an overall redesign his or her empire for the better! And I’m my own opinion make the game 5 stars worth of fun! If this gets a response from a developer not only will it prove that y’all listen to players but I will change my rating :)
Fun to play
by Davidk8203 on 2019/06/30 04:56
I have played for months now. I have a sweet city and pvp all the time. I haven't spent a dime on the game and I have over 4k diamonds to spend if needed. People are whiners. This game is a lot of fun whether you want to build your city, fight others or chat. They have regular special events to get special buildings for questing. I only installed it to get a freebie on another game. That game was deleted months ago and I still play this. Joining a guild is easy and super beneficial. Try it. You will get hooked. P.S. People who think you must buy diamonds to play are not giving the game a chance and should probably find a different game. Maybe one with no challenge or strategy. People who spend diamonds will still get beat up by higher players because they are newbs. Slow down and develop your city and you won’t get attacked successfully as often. Ignore the trolls saying you have to pay to play. Try it for a week and find out for yourself.
7 Year Veteran - originally a 5 and now a 2
by 7 Year Player on 2019/02/25 09:42
I have been playing for 7 years and considering discontinuing due to the increasing expense needed to play the game. The #1 trick they use to consume yourDiamonds is the cost to auto click and eliminate 100 plus moves. No big deal to not spend 5 diamonds sale on and click your self but by the time your in the Arctic phase you have to click 100s of time. even if you do pay it still makes you click 100 times because the auto clicks is too simple and does ask a few basic questions that would allow them to do more of the work for you. There seems to be also fewer player than in the past so there is less available trades. Another reason to finally call It a day. I think they have gotten 100s of dollars over 7 years most in the past year. I don’t mind spending some money but I would have expected logical improvements to like I described above in return for my funds. As one of your most loyal clients I am guessing I will not get a response or taken seriously but I am likely a conduit for many other original players who are thinking of bailing.
Ok game until
by Rich121070 on 2018/11/17 11:51
The game is somewhat fun until you get to a certain age and are attacked and looted incessantly by man children who won’t level because they’re so large they can attacked anyone and plunder them without fear of retailing. The game caters to this. There is no requirement to level up so these people sit there and make themselves rich and you miserable on a daily basis and the developers love this. It’s like you high school football team having to play multiple NFL teams everyday. And their wonderful response to this will be “you can get a shield” which means you have to spend over a week collecting “visits” to your tavern from 80 or more friends on a daily basis for the pleasure of being left alone for a few days. Or pick up your loot on time which turns you into an anxiety ridden mess setting alarms and stopping whatever the thing you’re doing in real life because they allow some over grown a holes with no lives of their own to constantly feed off you instead of enforcing them to level and take on people at their own level. This is a constant theme of all their games and I’m extremely tired of them.
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.

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.
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.
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
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.
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!
Pretty neat game.
by Gore88 on 2018/08/12 06:01
I’ve only been playing for about 24 hours or so. I’ll update after a week or so of playing but so far. I’m enjoying this game. Don’t look at it as a pay to win bc honestly, what mobile games aren’t? Just sit back and relax, and enjoy the ride. It’s normal when it comes to the building but still different than Clash of Clans or other base simulator games. I like that you can actually strategize battles and it’s even on a honeycomb battlefield! I personally enjoy honeycomb battlefields and happy to see this game has it. Think Fire Emblem. And if you haven’t played Fire Emblem, you’re missing out. Especially if you don’t at least give this game a try. I’m looking forward to progressing through the ages regardless of the time it may take and even considering becoming a volunteer for them. With that said, hope you give this game a try with an open mind and patience.
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!
Facebook Problem
by tekarakatz123 on 2019/08/28 13:41
You need to remove the ability to link to Facebook or make it so if players who do it that it truly does create a real account. Jumping threw hoops to fix a game when I am a new player only for months to end up with a glitched game even you can’t fix was not a fun experience. I ended up giving up after five months even though I loved the game because you kept finding a new problem each time and you were never even able to register my account when you tried several times. Each time I was asked the same questions and I answered the same. No support could fix my account but many tried. Removed game since it is broken. Why play a broken account even the developer can’t fix. Update to your response: It is not worth contacting support again they said it can’t be fixed and stoped responding a few days ago. If I knew in the beginning of April of 2019 what I know now I could have just just made a new game and not wasted my money on the broken one when I first joined. Customer support is horrible and all I want to do is help fix this amazing game I fell in love with.
Originally loved this game
by Grimvar Regis on 2020/05/05 02:39
For a game that I originally loved, I find this problematic. I spent over 2 months, gathering and workin when I could. Then this last update removed every bit of progress I’ve made. I have tried to find a way to contact support, but when I have, they tried to link it to my email rather than apple. I never previously linked it to anything aside from apple, and was nearing early middle age status. No, I don’t play the game every fifteen minutes, but the support system should be better after updates, and the password should correlate with the given email or apple account, yet it doesn’t. Two months lost on work for early middle ages, and those who play after me may play more, and its a good game, but warned of the risk. I was a few supplies and trades from multistory housing. Edit: Yall fixed the issue very quickly. Thank you!
Amazing just a big problem
by ratatatcat on 2020/02/23 17:03
I love this game, it is one of the most amzing games I have ever played, but the one big problem is that it takes forever to do anything unless you have diamonds, diamonds can be got by doing quests or from buildings or events, you can also buy them. But it is really hard to get them without buying them. So unless you spend a lot of money (diamonds don’t cost much but you need a lot of them) you will not make that much progress. As said otherwise it is an amazing game. I have read a few reviews and I read a few developer’s responses and I think they are terrible, some people are talking about real problems and the developers are saying to “contact the support staff” to help them, that is not good, the developers should really know how to fix the problem, also I read a response that said “it is possible to get all the buildings without paying real money” that is true but for the 400 diamond buildings it would take a real long time.
Great game with some minor downsides
by s.haus on 2019/11/12 01:50
Just recently began playing this game and honestly love nearly everything about it......with a few exceptions. I play 90% through the mobile app, and I do wish I had some of the same controls/features that are available on the desktop version. I hate that I cannot check on my guilds activity unless I am on the desktop, as well as I cannot see who in my guild made a particular trade or donated to the treasury unless I’m on the desktop. I also wish guild founders/leaders had more control over their guild in general. For example if there is a member who accidentally (or intentionally to be annoying) posts something, there is no way to get rid of it. As the guild leader, there should be a way to control these things, otherwise there is no way of enforcing rules of the guild other than simply kicking members who don’t comply. Other than minor things like this the game is fantastic.
Great Idea, Sometimes Poor Performance
by anameyoulltake on 2018/05/23 13:09
The concepts in this game are great except two things: 1) The game is advertised as a strategy game but it’s really a game of chance. Many games have a store where one can trade in coins, gems, whatever but in this game there’s nothing equivalent and you usually win a chance to win something rather than the something. 2) The game is extremely slow, glitchy, laggy during high use times. The game sits and sits or boots you out or screens don’t update and show that you’re actually being attacked which is very frustrating when you’re sitting there watching and trying to defend. You have to constantly refresh or flip between screens during these times in order to get them to update. This happens a lot at daily recalc, a critical play time. If the game were more strategy and less chance and it worked right at times the games makes critical, it would be a great game.
