FOE

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

It takes a while to do things tho
Great game
by pepatti-359 on 2021/02/18 16:26
I enjoy this very much.you do have to be careful & plan your expenses because they can climb but I seldom have to go overboard. In my guild, the Fair Traders,they are very helpful.
Lives Up To The Hype
by Quidzark on 2021/02/18 15:50
Excellent game all around. Simple to get started, multiple strategy options, good graphics/lay-out, well designed. After playing for a couple of hours, I spent 9.99 Modest In-App purchase well worth it. Will most likely make a couple more. I paid $40-$60 for the Civ games when they came on cd’s Don’t mind shelling out $9.99 once a month or so for a game of equal quality. I look at it as an installment plan😀
Good game
by ......,....,.. on 2021/02/18 06:08
I really enjoying playing this game
Money scam
by mambaouchiwawa on 2021/02/18 04:58
If you play free it’s all good. But when you try to buy diamonds they charge your bank account and you never receive the purchased diamonds.
Just ok
by p@s2m on 2021/02/17 23:22
I played this game hoping I could just build settlements, exchange goods, do quests etc. It started of well till production of certain goods generated hardly any product and you had to wait to build your inventory. What’s messed up is when you wait to get your goods and some other player just comes in and plunders it. I am going to give this game another week or so to see if that continues to happen, if it does I’m out of here.
The best of the best!
by Cnet73 on 2021/02/17 07:36
It’s the best game that I’ve found. You get out of it, what you want out of it.
My game gets reset every week
by OPR.INC on 2021/02/16 14:32
Why does it reset my game ???
Needs an update
by RussianManChan1 on 2021/02/16 02:55
Ill change my review to 5 if they bring back the swipe collect. Its bad that they got rid of that. Would also be cool if they let you collect over 100fp
Plundering is ruining the game
by NorCalBug on 2021/02/15 23:11
I been playing the game for about 2 months now, and used to really enjoy the game. Recently though, the joy is just being sucked out of it for me because of increased frequency of plundering, an aspect of the game I thoroughly dislike and from which I derive no pleasure, and especially by players that are so advanced that there is no earthly way I can compete. I play games to relax and enjoy, and as soon as that ceases, it’s time for me to move on. I am fast approaching that point. I wish the developers would reconsider this aspect of the game, because it caters to a tiny minority, but it ruins the fun and enjoyment for far more people than it satisfies.
Great game to play
by EchoBLegacy on 2021/02/14 22:43
I enjoy playing this game
Love this game
by cheyenne_t09 on 2021/02/14 17:31
Definitely recommend trying this one! It’s awesome. You have to use strategy to advance and helps to have teamwork.
Diamonds
by ethano2005 on 2021/02/14 11:04
I’ve lost a lot of diamonds because there is no “are you sure about this purchase” kind of thing. Just with the pandemic when I do have a few extra dollars it really is disappointing to loose them so easily and often. Other then that absolutely awesome game guys!
MY FAVOURITE GAME!

ALL THE STUFF YOU CAN DO! THIS FEELS LIKE REAL LIFE BUT A SIMULATOR!
Didn’t get support
by LUKEDOG28 on 2021/02/13 19:03
Cancelled my game. Too expensive and their support for botched purchases is pathetic.
Money grab
by OneEyedWilly2 on 2021/02/13 16:44
This was a good idea gone bad. I very quickly got to a point that I couldn’t build new buildings without diamonds and the only way to get diamonds was to buy them. No thanks.
Pay to play
by name not taken uwu on 2021/02/13 12:52
Get ready to pay for everything in this game, unless you don't mind waiting days for simple resources.
Where did my account go
by kingdogman237 on 2021/02/13 05:12
When I went to play again I was at the game medieval age but then I saw MY HOLE TOWN WAS GONE AND I LOST MY PROGRESS please fix that but is a good game but please fix it.
Stealing my rewards 😠
by Pastor Philip on 2021/02/13 01:04
Game is not enjoyable in that the play is not apparent or intuitive at all!! The fact that you spend hard earned rewards only to later have them stolen away by thieves is a great example for children and teens that hard work has no point and why earn when you can steal. It’s about Craftiness rather than ingenuity. Not a good game.
😡😡😡
by MatthewRadz on 2021/02/11 20:59
The tech tree makes no sense, and I was at the EMA and then I was reset!!
Fun to play but unable to add friends
by LanzaStar on 2021/02/11 09:58
It’s nice to play so far and I’m liking it however, I’m unable to add friends (that I actually know) why is it no matter how many times I double check we are in the same world. I can’t find my friends. Is it a bug or glitch or something. When will it be fixed?
Issues logging in
by JohnnyOSF on 2021/02/11 07:01
Hi team, having a great time getting into the game. Unfortunately I started having issues logging in and the app is telling me I lost connection and I am not connected to game center. Please fix this problem and let me know how I can make up for lost time advancing my city. Had multiple progress activities going on at the same time.
Nice

Perfect Game!!
by BoomerB1972 on 2021/02/08 13:41
I love city building games and FoE is about as good as you can get. For a mobile game, this one is near perfect in every way. This game seems simple at the start but the more you get into it, the more deep it gets. Huge amount of buildings to choose from. Build your city how it works best for you. Moving up in age is meant to take time. Don’t rush it. Stay in each age for several months. Build up your army strength, level up your Great Buildings. Join a helpful guild that can give you tips. Interact with players from out there in the real world. The game never gets boring, always something to do. The dev’s create special events which are fun and challenging to get special reward buildings. The game actually has a huge learning curve. Google and YouTube tutorials are Your best friend til you figure out everything. No annoying pop up adds disrupt your play. You can play every single aspect of the game without purchasing diamonds (the games premium currency) but obviously buying and using diamonds can speed things up. The game also gives you chances to win diamonds through the Guild Expedition and more. Some players complain about lack of land space but that’s part of the fun challenge, trying to squeeze everything into your city. Some players complain about being plundered. Well, erect a city shield, boost up your city defense army, level up military great buildings, collect your buildings as soon as they spawn, build a Galata Tower, it’ll stop thieves in their tracks. I’m amazed that players in the higher up ages still don’t set up an 8 unit defensive army to help protect their city. If players actually took the time to learn everything there is to know about the game, there would be zero whining about such things. I’ve been playing for over three years now and have yet to be bored. I can’t say that about any other game I’ve ever played. The dev’s have fine tuned every single aspect of this game to near perfection. The support team is extremely helpful if you have any issues, they will bend over backwards to try and help you. Unlike a lot of app games, FoE is very reliable. Game crashes are rare. Glitches are also rare and when they do occur, they are fixed quickly. The only problem with this game is that I enjoy it so much resulting in me never getting around to do odd jobs around the house haha! Bravo Inno, you created an amazing game.
Research
by ff flameout on 2021/02/07 14:13
System requires 1.2 m in supplies to "UNLOCK". I have 1.2m plus and yet the system WILL NOT UNLOCK.
The update is suppressing the game
by Its good 24227 on 2021/02/07 13:58
I used to have forge of empires awhile ago, and it really was fun back then due to pvp including everyone. Nowadays you have to research for a whole week just to unlock that feature. Why is pvp important? It’s helpful In getting resources faster and to expand the map giving you more stuff to do to expand your empire. Since I’m still in the Iron Age starting over again, I cannot attack players since most of them have not unlocked pvp yet. It is frustrating because upon visiting their city, I saw clear signs that the player opened the game and then left permanently. Attacking lower levels is unfair to active players, but most of them aren’t ever going to be active anyways. It is robbing the challenge and activity of the players that are actually playing and active. This decision is not only a huge mistake, but it also makes new players wanting to leave immediately due to being able not to do anything. I know you updated the game to make sure more people are satisfied of staying in the game, but you are actually doing the exact opposite. Unless this is fixed soon, a lot of new players will quit altogether, including me.
Boring
by colbyhouse on 2021/02/07 07:27
I’ve been playing this game for a few years now. It was fun for a while, but I’m at a point where it’s the same thing over and over. Even the holiday extra games used to be fun, but now they don’t even leave them up for very long. I’m probably going to delete game from my iPad because it’s so boring I forget to play it. I don’t understand why I have any supplies or money because you can’t do anything with it after awhile.
Play your way
by Fludunky on 2021/02/07 02:44
Whether you are aggressive or peaceful player, game can be played to suit your style. No single right way to play. Whether you can play a lot or not so much, you will enjoy.
Be careful👍
by DDBColorado on 2021/02/06 16:31
This game provides lots of entertainment and different challenges! FOE has been a very positive distraction during the pandemic. The only thing you need to prepare for is that it can be borderline “addictive.” You can find yourself spending hours a day as you get further into it.
Only good if it’s your first time you playing.
by the real OggoR on 2021/02/06 03:48
Tutorial is garbage, and a waste of time. Game puts you wherever it wants when you accept an invite link, instead of in the same world of the player that sent it. I’ll stick with clash of clans until they figure out how to program games

Hello
by impostor 2 on 2021/02/03 16:14
Hello I am a player who has played multiple cities in foe and in my opinion it is a amazing game but I wish there was a mode where you could walk around your city but only be able to walk inside the town hall cause I think it would be amazing to walk around a city - just my honest opinion
Decent
by 🐰💕🐻💕 on 2021/02/03 14:48
FOE is a great builder style game. It has enough group activities and events to keep you interested for years. There are only two problems with the game that prevent it from being a 5 star app. 1st is the 24hr world timer on your daily resource collection. The timer makes you wait 24hrs from the time you collect to respawn those resources. For example if you are playing on your phone and want to collect your daily resources during your lunch break but someone tries to chat you up for 5 minutes you have then lost those 5 minutes because you must wait at least 24hrs to collect again. And well if this happens again and again you can see how eventually you will lose entire days worth of resource collection. Other games I have played used 20 or 23hr world timers to give players more freedom but as FOE is roughly 4yrs old at the time of writing this they clearly intend to stick with this format. 2nd as you can trade resources across the “Ages” it means you can obtain the best buildings (great buildings) at any point in the game provided you are able to farm enough expansion tiles to place them. This leaves players little incentive to move up to next age. Indeed it actually makes many features of the game harder. Which is really a shame because the art and the work in general that they put into these ages is kinda amazing.
Be careful what you purchase
by tcrbwlp on 2021/02/03 09:25
Ive been totally ripped off for the second time purchasing diamonds. The first time was to finish the carnival event and not this time was the football event. Both times I’ve purchased diamonds to complete the event but mysteriously the diamonds weren’t credited and once again I’ve messaged back and forth four days now just to still not have the purchase items nor credit to my account. And since the event ends tomorrow they will once again have successfully stretched out the simple fix long enough to negate the entire purpose of my purchase. The first time I chalked it up to a fluke, now I see it’s clearly a strategy🤯🤬😤
Not for offline
by Ajax Fox on 2021/02/02 19:48
I played this game a bit and got bored quite often. The progression doesn’t feel rewarding. It’s definitely a pay to play game. I also tried to play when the T-Mobile network was down in my area and it wouldn’t let me play! After data was back up and I was able to sign in, all my progress was deleted. Not worth my time.
Erroneous Purchases Recorded
by navycamp on 2021/02/02 12:33
A erroneous purchase of diamonds occurred. Nothing was added to my balance. A report was sent to Apple.
It keeps me sane
by ssilverton2 on 2021/02/01 18:58
Since I have been stuck indoors for a YEAR I need fascinating activities to help me escape mentally. This game absolutely does it for me. I have 5 cities now: one in asteroids, one on Mars, one in Colonial America, and 2 in the Middle Ages. I can play this one all day! 5 stars

Another Another Edit
by The Gane Rater. on 2021/02/01 05:44
This game is epic. So addictive! It isn’t p2w, yes you can advance a lot quicker with diamonds, but I am fairly advanced and haven’t paid a dime. I still think a toggleable chat filter could be cool cause the chat and messages can get a little crazy, but really a great game!
Great game!!!
by skyrim2219 on 2021/01/31 18:55
This game is amazing! I think I’ve been playing for about four years, in my spare time I just log on and go. You do not need to spend money unless you want to. Diamonds come free. Medals come free. Ill be honest I spend some money in game because it’s become my hobby. But I didn’t start until like contemporary era. All you need is the right buildings and the right guild helps too. Or team. Yes the first couple ages are easier to get through, then it gets a little harder. Early in the game you do need to set your defense, by building army buildings and going into your army select a warrior and set them as your city defense. They should highlight in blue. This will help guard you some from plunderers. So heads up, people will battle you without you knowing and they can take your goods. Way to avoid this, make sure to collect when your goods are done. Then they won’t have anything to take. As far as the map, you progress on it as you do in the city. Don’t try to complete it all in one go. Otherwise yes you will be spending diamonds. You need stronger armies the further you go. You will get all the resources in the end so be patient. If you don’t want to invest the time to play the long game this really isn’t for you. But if you enjoy building and creating a city from the ground up with great graphics, and so much to do( events, quests, story line, daily challenges, bidding wars in the market, building smaller cities in your city, guilds, expeditions, etc)then this could be for you. Only build goods buildings that are boosted by what goods you have. I could go on and on on tips to help get started. This is a game about strategy. Rome wasn’t built in a day. If you happen to join world Fel Dranghyr look me up, be happy to help! Empress Kaleyne
Awesome!
by ChynahMoon on 2021/01/31 16:46
Forge of Empires has been an awesome way to spend time I would probably spend whining during the pandemic. It also keeps my mind sharp! Thank you, Inno!
Boom!
by why bother🤔 on 2021/01/31 16:37
Ok my mind is blown I literally just got this game today and love it.It reminds me of clash of clans but in this you can upgrade and build stuff way faster.Nothing you need to change all I can say is this game is awesome!
All they care about is your money
by Simsim@12 on 2021/01/30 21:59
Money money money, once the free game gets you hooked it’s all about getting you to spend that next dollar.
Venus or Bust
by Mo4les on 2021/01/30 18:52
Forge of Empires is a great game, but the developers have to stay on top of getting new ages/eras added to the game. Without these types of additions, there is no incentive for advanced level players to continue. New ages/eras should be coming out every 6-9 months from the developers. Failure to add these regularly will mean a slow death for FoE.
Good, butttt
by DeservedIntolerance on 2021/01/30 07:52
Needs a way to store buildings off the grid so that you can rearrange the city. No room to move anything around when you expand because everything overlaps.

Crash galore
by DadVetFireman on 2021/01/28 09:51
Cons: Inno rarely fixes any glitches, app crashes all the time. Making mobile playing almost impossible Pros: support usually does an okay job. Game can be played competitively for free despite in game purchase opportunities
Dumb and Boring
by 1/2 round on 2021/01/27 14:12
I’m a huge fan of RTS and city builder games. This game is dumb and boring. Unless you buy their diamonds you will not progress well. The storyline is boring. The functions like “reconstruction” are garbage. The battles are utterly boring and uneventful. Don’t waste your time.
Incroyable
by antipublicitee. on 2021/01/26 08:48

by hfgeuudyfhdhueudydhchhdgegdhdu on 2021/01/22 21:20
It’s kind of disappointing that you have to buy diamonds but overall pretty fun
Trying this game
by pioneer dude 55t on 2021/01/21 23:36
I liked for a little while but ........ A lot of stuff cost diamonds and when I wanted to get more troops I have to get more building supplies and they don’t give you much diamonds and Diamond cost money to get more too and they only give you like 300 so sometimes you’re stuck in a jam when you can’t get stuff so I hope they change his game and you should think it over before you download it
With shield still plundered
by Helshira on 2021/01/19 13:52
Doesn’t matter if i have a shield to protect my goods. People still steal goods. Goods I’ve been waiting for 24 hours. After many years of playing I’m done. It’s so Stupid someone can take goods you pay and wait to make.
Great game!
by STUDENT!!!!😭😭😭😭 on 2021/01/18 16:59
I have been playing for a few months and my dad got me into this game. The beginning is a bit slow, but as you advance you start to spend hours and hours on it. There is NO need to spend any money and is a great strategy game. The events add something special and I can’t stop. Thank you so much for this great experience. I also love the fact that most guilds are so supportive and there are many friendly people who you can meat everywhere
Not a city building game.
by Dragon Lover 2,508 on 2021/01/18 04:10
This is a war strategy game, not a city building game. I’ve been playing for over 500 days, have reached the postmodern level and haven’t spent a penny. Although I have enjoyed the game until now, I can say that I think I’m near the end. The problem is the Great Buildings. So many other players, the majority it seems, acquire something called The Arc along with other battle level increasing structures. Then they spend their time plundering you. They have no population. No manufacturing. Just theft and robbery. How do you defeat someone who has a 900% boost in battle. You’re left the bug on their windshield with no recourse. Even a city shield is futile . You can’t acquire more land as all land is controlled by battle or real cash. You can’t barter anymore because all your manufacturing is plundered. The special games the developers run like football are really fun. But the rest of it has stopped being fun because of the blatant theft. This is a great game if you are, or want to teach your kid, to be a bully.
Love it
by Barry saloon on 2021/01/17 15:51

Forge of Empires
by Flamerdude105 on 2021/01/17 02:52
A lot of fun at first but then expanding your city to add buildings to produce supplies that allow you to advance in the game is nearly impossible!! Way too much money needs to be invested and even THEN YOU CAN’T EXPAND YOUR CITY!! Very frustrating!!
Promotes bullying
by NevadaGlass on 2021/01/16 13:33
Promotes bullying as it allows thieves to steal and attack your city daily for months on end without the ability to block players who spend all of their time targeting other players- developer responded pvp is allowed at all levels of game- being attacked by the same player daily for 3 months and having your city robbed by same isnt pvp - its targeting - 3 Months of targeting by same players is in fact bullying. There are specific areas for pvp in game from map menu but it shouldn't be constant in your own city.- not enough tokens to maintain city shield as the earn rate is low. I used to play daily, not so much anymore because of hostile players. I could understand pvp by people from the same era or lower, but allowing players from higher levels and eras to attack daily for months, reinforces top players to constantly steal from lower level players. That then trains people to harvest from lower levs to progress but makes you hate people you dont even know because they attack you daily. It also prevents lower levels from successfully growing because they are constantly harvested. You cant buy city shields from tavern unless you earn enough credits which is accomplished by getting people to visit your tavern. The rates are high so its not a daily task. I havent explored using diamonds but there have been plenty of reviews on being forced to use diamonds so i wont comment on that since i have spent real cash on diamonds. Bottom line, you will start to dislike people alot because of this game.....i continue to play because I have 2 years invested in this game but it is a frustrating experience.

THIS GAME IS THE BEST
by hdnhsn on 2021/01/15 19:34
All the other civilization building games I play are TERRIBLE, but this one, no, this one made it easier to get the buildings and even does special events! I can’t deny that this one is THE best civilization building game that I have come across.
Best game ever

Long term strategy game
by Grand High Witch 111 on 2021/01/15 15:59
This is kind of an odd game. Despite what some of the one and two star reviews say you do not have to buy diamonds to play. As a matter of fact the game is more fun if you don’t. But (and this is a big but) you have to be an incredibly patient player. This is not the kind of game you can beat in 36 hours and then move to the next game on your list, as a matter of fact this game technically has no end. I have been playing it for over a year and I am still in the Late Middle Ages. This is the ultimate strategy game. It is also a community game which is usually not my thing. I am not usually a big fan of group games but I like this because I build my own world but belong to a “guild” and yes some of them do have rules that change over time and many will kick you out if you don’t abide by them. So find a guild that suits your playing style and play along because this actually is a fun game once you figure out you don’t need to buy diamonds to have a good time
Never trust paying this company
by Katmikk on 2021/01/15 15:33
The company put burden of proof on user rather than them checking what they received. Also, you may pay and not receive what you paid for, then again n the burden of proof on the user, not them checking what they’ve collected. It’s a convenient way to cheat users

You can play this game for hours, it is insanely good! I am on 4 years now people. Do I spend money to play? I choose to occasionally. Really this game is worth every penny I chose to spend. Mostly I play for free!! Every thing is easy to learn and I play hours and hours each days. Thanks to the talented designers of FOE.
My favorite game but I need help

Hello I have to say so far it a pretty cool game. I do hope for 2021 players who still play with his push for more content and depth backstory mode.
Loved the game

I deleted game cause one day I went to play which I was in the end of Iron Age but it started me all over so I sadly deleted the game
Can be fun
by casual gamer D on 2021/01/11 02:51
A good guild and new friends are the reason to play this game. It is possible for a patient player to never spend a dime and do very well, having fun! Without a good guild, without making new friends and encouragement/help for each other the game grows disappointing fast. Trade is mainly how I play and I have played about 2 years so far. Combat can be fun as well because it is not automatically player vs. player, which I don’t like. When we battle as a guild against other guilds that is often fun. However be warned, this game is populated by real people, and with real people you get nice and jerks. I like the way they are always seeking to give us new challenges and they do work to correct errors. I don’t like errors and glitches which do plague this game, however they are no worse than most other games I have played.
Too many unnecessary clicks
by Twilson420 on 2021/01/09 21:26
The issue described below has been resolved! Thanks so much! Another suggestion.... On mobile, you recently introduced ability to collect all bldgs for 5 diamonds. Love it! I would like to see same offered for aiding all friends, guild members, neighborhood. Diamonds paid for each option obviously. If you aid everyone everyday, that’s roughly 200+ daily clicks or taps (assuming max number of friends and guild mates). If you run multiple worlds, that adds up fast. I halve literally quit guilds that require aiding because my hands hurt from all the clicking. I should probably just give up the game, but I love it SO much! Anything you could do to cut down on non strategic clicking would be most appreciated! Even if I have to pay diamonds for it. ————— Issue described below have been fixed! Thanks! Another suggestion...tavern visits from Townhall...would be nice if that worked like aiding. Click on a tavern to visit, no pop ups to close, and the icon greys out so you know who’ve you visited that tavern and can’t visit again until eligible. If you really care what that tavern looks like, access from your friends list. ———————————— Inside the Townhall, it keeps a list of which players have aided you over the past several days. You can then click a gold star to provide aid to that player in return. Once you have aided a player, Ideally, it should disable the gold star for all future occurrences of that player. But it doesn’t. When you click on the player a second time, it pops up a notification stating that you can’t aid that player right now. You then have to click OK to dismiss the notification. When you do this 50 or 60 times it gets annoying! Another scenario that arises, you try to aid a player but there’s no Buildings open to be aided. I don’t need to know that I couldn’t aid that player, That player needs to know that I tried. And the game does notify that player that i tried but there was nothing available to be aided. So why bother notifying me and making me dismissed yet another useless notification?
Waste of time

Good, with one frustration
by Miggyt_DC on 2021/01/05 05:11
It’s a good, chill builder game for long-game enthusiasts. Moves quickly enough that I rarely if ever feel pressured to purchase diamonds (which are used to speed the clock). One major flaw : Limiting the size/proportion choice for items makes the game unnecessarily frustrating... and may eventually be the single reason to abandon play. (For two reasons) Reason 1) Not giving players a choice of proportion (ie a 3x5 building isn’t ALSO offered as a 5x3 building) limits creativity, which chips away at ownership of the city being built... which will lead to player abandoning the game early. Reason 2) The game is dynamic/complex enough that giving the choice (3x5 and 5x3) will only minimally impact the difficulty level of the main game. Further, this minimal impact can also easily be offset by changing some other aspect of the game to keep difficulty where it was in the first place. Give us the choice. Let us build our cities with a bit more flexibility to make it truly our own... then you’d get 5 stars.

by Darrell Radabaugh on 2021/01/04 17:01
This game has nothing to offer. If you don’t wanna spend a crap load of money you won’t get anywhere, even in the early ages.I get emails sent to other players names and shows their email addresses. This game will never be recommended. Worst ever.
Fun game

Without money you don't win

It's maddening that you have to be buying diamonds and soldiers in order to advance. I'm very close to leaving and not coming back Louis
I believe this game needs one more thing
by Pasha_21 on 2021/01/02 20:38
I am always wishing to redo my city but there is never room to move something somewhere else. So I believe there should be something to where if you press on it saves your old city and you are able to make a new city with the same things you had before. If that was on this game then I would love it so much more. Than you for reading.
Same old...

Glitches and slow performance
by Cheeo 3 on 2020/12/29 00:28
Simple math boggles the developers minds. I have 21k+ happiness and 15k population. Which one is greater? Obviously it’s the population cause that’s what the game says and it penalizes me for it... idiots
Pure Pay to Play
by Elder Wyrm on 2020/12/28 01:48
Here’s a cool Christmas Quest, it’s 9 stages and will probably take you 20 days. Cool, you completed it. It will cost you $50 to get the reward. Here’s a side quest to build a secondary village. You need to develop 8 technologies, and every one will cost you $5 worth of diamonds...
Negotiations 0 effort
by raz344567787 on 2020/12/28 01:41
Game is fun but when it comes to having to negotiate a win instead of fighting.. it’s complete randomness. At least make it a puzzle to figure out , seems like there’s no rhyme or reason for it at all except to take your resources
Not getting any help from support.
by ghecrheccw on 2019/06/20 22:08
I messaged support for some help because there’s a glitch with the mass supply rushes not working for all of my supply buildings. They used to work just fine but now they only work on one out of my 4 buildings that only produce supplies. It’s very frustrating when your in an event and the things that are supposed to help you with the event don’t and then it’s worse when the people you send a message to refuse to even admit there’s an issue. They instead choose to talk to you like your stupid or lying. I don’t understand what the issue is myself there is a glitch, saying thank you for making us aware of the issue, we will work on fixing it sorry for any inconvenience or unnecessary frustration it has caused. Thank you for your patience while we fix the problem so you can keep enjoying the game. I don’t think saying something like that is to much to ask of anybody. And in my opinion is far more professional then avoiding the glitch and acting like I’m lying about it or that I don’t know what I’m talking about. What could I possibly gain from lying about a glitch and if I wasn’t 100% sure about something I would ask a question not complain.
Decent
by 🐰💕🐻💕 on 2021/02/03 14:48
FOE is a great builder style game. It has enough group activities and events to keep you interested for years. There are only two problems with the game that prevent it from being a 5 star app. 1st is the 24hr world timer on your daily resource collection. The timer makes you wait 24hrs from the time you collect to respawn those resources. For example if you are playing on your phone and want to collect your daily resources during your lunch break but someone tries to chat you up for 5 minutes you have then lost those 5 minutes because you must wait at least 24hrs to collect again. And well if this happens again and again you can see how eventually you will lose entire days worth of resource collection. Other games I have played used 20 or 23hr world timers to give players more freedom but as FOE is roughly 4yrs old at the time of writing this they clearly intend to stick with this format. 2nd as you can trade resources across the “Ages” it means you can obtain the best buildings (great buildings) at any point in the game provided you are able to farm enough expansion tiles to place them. This leaves players little incentive to move up to next age. Indeed it actually makes many features of the game harder. Which is really a shame because the art and the work in general that they put into these ages is kinda amazing.
In-Game Expansion Costs Real Money
by jayg44706 on 2019/07/25 10:01
I like games that allow me to construct kingdoms and civilizations, so I thought this game would be fun. It started out pretty fun, and my empire advanced in technology relatively quickly. However, you get to a point relatively soon (the Bronze Age, I believe) where the only way to expand buildable space is to purchase diamonds (with real money) which you then use buy land to expand on. There are very limited expansions you can use the in-game currency to purchase, even though building in-game currency happens quickly. And victory and research progress provides very little land expansion. Which brings me to a second issue that ties into the land expansion problem. In order to progress through time, you have to conduct research. This involves a combination of spending points that automatically accrue, production, and in-game coin. One concept to developing new research requires a number of different productions (e.g. dye and masonry). The problem is you don’t have enough land to construct these buildings to produce the goods you need to advance the research. And you also need available population, which can only be expanded by building more residences on land that you don’t have. See where I’m going with this? The game is ok at best, unless you have real money you want to sink into it. As a passive Smartphone gamer, it is very rare that I spend any real money on a game. And when I do it is only $0.99. I plan to delete the game.
Not very fun to play
by Beherenow77 on 2020/05/25 12:13
I keep looking for a good city building game, something fun like The Simpsons: Tapped Out and I was hoping this was it. But it’s not. My main issues are that when you are just starting the game people who have been playing for years and are way ahead of you are still allowed to attack you and plunder your city. This should only be available for people at the same level as you otherwise there is nothing you can do about it. Your army is never going to beat theirs. You also get so little in terms of land that you have to keep deleting buildings so you can build something else when you need certain goods. And the goods buildings produce so little in such a long time that you spend days and days trying to get enough to do anything. I get that this is a long play game but it’s too long for me. Just not enough to do to keep me interested. Update in response to developer: 1. Plundering would be fine if in the game it tells you about it, however, you only find out once someone does it and then you have to google what happened. 2. Even after googling Neighborhoods it is still unclear what these are, how to determine which one you are in or what the purpose is. 3. The game also doesn’t teach you about city defense, had to google that too. Too much stuff you have to google which is what makes it not fun. I never have to google how to do anything in Tapped Out, a far superior game. If you’re looking for a true city building game this is not it.
Huge Disappointment/Poorly Designed
by Jaymaxm on 2019/10/23 18:13
If you believe in playing a game that is fun, fair and enjoyable, skip this game! I started playing this game 18 months ago, only to discover some major design flaws. This game requires you to obtain blueprints towards gaining a Great Building, which provides you with different benefits. You are required to obtain 9 blueprints to build a Great Building. Often, you will get to a point where you are down to 8 of those blueprints and then start gaining multiples of the same one, where at that point you can choose to trade those multiples towards a “random chance” to obtain the one you are missing...Only problem is, the “random blueprint selector” feature rarely gives you the actual blueprint you need to finish the set of 9 required. So you end up spending days, weeks, even months of effort in saving up Forge Points to put down towards more blueprints, only to be held back over and over again by the “random blueprint trade” selection process! This “random” process really really takes a huge effort to get by, and just really makes it frustrating to say the least. Eventually you realize it’s no longer any fun to play a game that relies upon a “random selection” process. Progress is obstructed over and over...then the fun is gone...all that’s left is frustration because it inevitably just begins to feel like an entirely futile process altogether....is that really fun? Make a better choice, I wished now I had! What a waste of time!!!!
Great new updates!
by Thewurdninja on 2018/03/08 00:46
I love what they have done with the recent update. The z’s for buildings not in the process of production are now stationary making them much easier to see. I am a huge fan of the daily quests. Side quests and event quests have been greatly improved, causing me to play more frequently. Overall, I love this game. I have been playing for a few years now and have seen some ups and downs. I am looking forward to the new ages to come. The only thing I would like to see improved is will you PLEASE fix the fact that the app now asks me to sign in through Facebook every single time, even if I was just using it. It redirects me through the Facebook app and I have to click continue, okay, I accept, go, blah blah blah every time just to get to my city. It’s kind of annoying and makes it hard for me to quickly pick up productions or something while I’m not really actively playing at the moment. I find myself checking in less and less because of this added time for log in. Otherwise, great app. I would recommend it, just don’t ever click the log in through Facebook button or you are doomed to navigate through the outside app every time you log in.
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!
Don’t Play This Game
by madsgrace on 2019/02/24 16:45
Just don’t bother getting into it. I don’t want to stop playing because I enjoy getting through all the Ages and I’ve gotten really far....... but it’s an endless frustration. It’s so pay-to-win it’s painful. I can’t afford diamonds, so if they’re needed, I wait until I win them. The community does not respect this play style at all. I was kicked out of a guild (that claimed to be “just for fun, no requirements”) because I didn’t finish more than one level of GE every week. If you invest time and forge points into a Great Building, people sitting on thousands of FPs will swoop in and steal the top spots after you’ve chipped away at it for weeks. While these are player related problems, the bottom line is - other players who spend real world cash WILL take issue with or advantage of players who don’t. I’m far in the game and have a lot of expendable resources, but it’s not possible to advance in the community without diamonds. I’ll continue to play just because I like seeing the Ages progress over time. This is just the nature of the game, so this isn’t really me saying “change the game,” but don’t get into this game (if you want to advance in the rankings) unless you’re willing to drop some serious real world cash. Otherwise, you won’t compete with the many players who do, and it just isn’t a fun experience. So save yourself the trouble and find a different game to play.
Was Fun At First
by Faelandaea on 2019/12/24 01:54
Unfortunately, this game is designed to force you to spend real money to succeed. Mind you, on almost every game I play that has a store, I drop money because I love supporting the devs. But to me there is a difference between choosing to support at my own pace and being halted in all progress unless I pay to continue. In this case, I am at a complete standstill unless I drop cash to buy supplies. I have to weave cloth to proceed with research to get a better army. But ... catch 22 ... I need a better army to defend my cloth. It takes 2 days to make the cloth I need and before that 2 days is up that is the one resource that keeps getting plundered. This is because others can tell where your research tree is at and what you are working on and successfully block you from proceeding by pillaging your most needed resource. So, even after dropping a couple of hundred bucks into this game, I am calling it quits because even that amount of cash wasn’t enough to let me slide in and just enjoy building a city. Kind of hard to defend your resources when you need those resources to create what you need to defend them. The research tree is designed for only veteran players to make sure newer players never make it past the early Middle Ages. Back to Elvenar for me, I suppose.
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.
Welp
by cntthnkfnm on 2020/01/31 22:22
Well, it was a good game. I played up until the colonial age and i built the SoZ (people who play the game will know what I’m talking about) but i had just built that i also had the CdM, LoA, ToB, and the colosseum but right after i built the SoZ i got off the game and I tried to get on it a few hours later and the game refused to log me in. Like it just wouldn’t let me. I tried restarting the internet to see if that was the problem, nope, found out it needed an update. So I updated it like usual thinking that was the problem but it still wouldn’t work. So I tried changing the country i was in to see if that did anything, it made me login with my apple id but then none of the worlds i had (i had 2) showed up. And it’s a real bummer because i was doing really good also, getting 30 FPs every day, was in a really great guild and i had a group chat with all the friends i have on there and it was really helpful because everyone helped one another it seemed like people had everything you needed to make a GB. But the game crashed or something, I probably will play it again but not for a real long time. Edit: like a day after i made this review the game fixed its self soo yeah good game 👌
Disappointed
by Diane Villela on 2018/12/09 16:02
This seemed like a cool game going threw the different ages I reached the Iron Age and realized creators are way too money hungry everything at some point costs diamonds I needed land to place things it costs 200 diamonds each for the first two which I felt was a little too much but I gave it the benefit of he doubt! I have to admit I spend money on this game but it didn’t last long at all. When I reached Iron Age I got two more slots available using diamonds and only one as free. I thought okay the first two were 200 diamonds each I’ll just purchase 400 diamonds and I’ll get these two nope I was wrong they charged 400 diamonds for one expansion. I’m going back to my other games because I wasted money time and patients on this game and I truely regret it. I have spent money in a games but if the Iron Age is 400 diamonds for one slot next Age is 800 diamonds and so on and so forth. You can’t really get a head without spending real money. I down right hate creators that purposely abuse their creation that could be cool but isn’t because they prefer making money but exploiting people just so people get a head in a game! I feel for it once but not anymore. If I could give 0 stars I would! I’m a person who doesn’t mind a few dollars here or there but I refuse to waste anymore time money or patients on creators and game who take advantage of people to this extreme.
Unfair PVP
by Mac222nite on 2020/02/09 04:11
I did a review in game but just in case it doesn’t show up, avoid this game unless you like being ripped off. Player vs Player has ruined the game. Every time you get ahead a little another player takes your goods. If you have a lot of money you can BUY your way through the game or if you’re a thief you can take what you want. In my mind, the developers and thieves should be arrested in the real world. I spent REAL MONEY to get these goods and to progress in the game and they were taken from me by someone with a city and army so big that only a few players could defend themselves against. Before anyone thinks I’m a whiner, don’t worry I left and deleted my cities. Update: I deleted the city that was being attacked daily and I’m trying one more time. I like this game but this is FOE’s last chance with me. If it doesn’t get better I will leave for good. I don’t mind attacks if they are FAIR!! Higher level players should only be allowed to attack other players at the same level. Otherwise it’s robbery. INNO you said you hoped I would come back. Ok..here I am. We shall see if you truly want a fair game or not. Make PVP fair or you will lose more players than just me. Read your reviews. I’m not the only one who feels this way and I’m NOT going to BUY my way to the top.
Fun for hardcore strategy players
by free2play_player on 2020/11/25 01:45
I played this game twice once a few years ago and the other I started 6 months ago. I have to say the modern incarnation of the game is amazing and the older version bot ad much. The problem with game is that it is meant for higher leveled and more hardcore strategy game players. This means that most players that find the game bad is because it is to complicated. This is not to say that not investing every time and moment means it is not fun but looking for helpful guilds will allow you to learn all the game mechanics and advice. When I started playing the game I hopped around different guilds and until I found an active one that was not only helpful but required little to nothing to be part of. To this day I’m still in this guild and even though I’m in the top percentile of my server I still find the game not that taxing in time requirements. In fact I find myself playing the game to much which I have to say if played enough the game becomes very addictive. Overall this game is fair, rewards you, and I have yet to spend a SINGLE dollar playing it.
The update is suppressing the game
by Its good 24227 on 2021/02/07 13:58
I used to have forge of empires awhile ago, and it really was fun back then due to pvp including everyone. Nowadays you have to research for a whole week just to unlock that feature. Why is pvp important? It’s helpful In getting resources faster and to expand the map giving you more stuff to do to expand your empire. Since I’m still in the Iron Age starting over again, I cannot attack players since most of them have not unlocked pvp yet. It is frustrating because upon visiting their city, I saw clear signs that the player opened the game and then left permanently. Attacking lower levels is unfair to active players, but most of them aren’t ever going to be active anyways. It is robbing the challenge and activity of the players that are actually playing and active. This decision is not only a huge mistake, but it also makes new players wanting to leave immediately due to being able not to do anything. I know you updated the game to make sure more people are satisfied of staying in the game, but you are actually doing the exact opposite. Unless this is fixed soon, a lot of new players will quit altogether, including me.
Forge of Empires
by janete24 on 2018/02/21 18:07
Game is boring. It’s basically a point/click/waiting game. And you do a lot of waiting to the point where you ask yourself “Am I even playing a game?” There’s no daily freebie for logging in to play. Scenery, landscapes, color in the game are dull. They do have what they call “incidents”, which are but randomly throughout the game, but you have to look everywhere, and look hard because they blend in too much with the rest of the scenery. What gets me most is you can’t expand your territory, and when you can’t expand you can’t put up buildings, and when you can’t put up buildings you can’t build, almost like you’re stuck in a corner. Then there are the challenges. You can’t fulfill them because you don’t have the buildings to build, and the reason you don’t have the buildings to build is because you don’t have the ability to expand your territory. These challenges should only be at the level you’re at, or with the resources you currently have to fulfill them. So again you’re in a corner and you can’t do anything. And the production buildings. Come on! I can only make one product at a time and it takes way too long. If the programmers are reading this “How do you earn diamonds and medals to expand your territory?”
Good but the wait though makes the game boring
by mr.l 64000 on 2019/07/17 05:51
Well it’s what you expect from a free app game. The game is just a point and wait game seriously it takes so long just to build a house even in the Bronze Age. Don’t get me started on the happiness gimmick I mean you already waste enough money and supplies on houses, supply buildings, and good buildings and how about just waste it on culture buildings and decorations. I mean I get but like I said before you already waste your money on houses and supply buildings. What I hate the most is forge points I mean why is the maximum limit 10 I mean I looked in different ages and it takes hundreds of forge points. Yeah you can buy them but whenever you buy a forge point but it gets more expensive when you buy them. Why does it take an hour just to one, there just should have been no forge points. In conclusion Forge of Empires is a good game but there cultural buildings should have been to increase supply buildings more and it should have applied to good buildings too.
Frustrating more than fun
by venuscrash24 on 2018/10/08 11:11
I really thought this would be a fun game. At first it is, but quickly turns to frustration. You never have enough room for things you need, and buildings don’t turn to better arrange. Their excuse for that is that it makes it more of a puzzle and that they would have to do too much work to make them turn. Everything starts to take so much to upgrade that you get stuck waiting for resources way too early on, and people do not offer fair trades at all. I finally drew the line at a requirement of many diamonds (200 I think), which you would have to buy, to do the next building upgrade. Some things that would make it better are actually upgrading buildings instead of selling and rebuilding every time, and an adjustment of how much is needed versus how much is offered in the game. This isn’t a game you can continuously play, you have to put it down-seems counter intuitive to me if you are trying to make a hit game... Also, last note, the fighting is fun but it take 2 hours to ‘recruit’ new fighters, and can only do one at a time for each type, so takes a day to build enough troops! One fight a day is no fun! I hope they put more work in and recalibrate, the idea is fun, just too frustrating.
What’s this “fight tactical battles” picture? & antiques dealer repeating junk?
by DySync on 2019/10/19 13:21
Am I missing this part of the game that on my city there could be a battle on the edges as though I’m defending my city? I have seen many other games doing this to a huge degree but does that make it even slightly reasonable or okay? Well I guess we all have to decide the line of being and speaking lies. Lol One more thing: Why so much repetition in the antiques dealer? There are thousands of possible items end yet never an event upgrade for any main event buildings. But there is a menagerie of the day... it’s a good place to showcase the awesome stuff that can be gained in game play- create want in newer players and greed in Kings of Empires. Or repeat the same stuff we are currently selling and bore the lot. For an app I play then any other ever I would put 5 stars for holding my attention and making a game enjoyable. Not to mention beautiful. There are times the great ideas that created UI and UX are an amazing spectacle and when that’s the case(like FOE) please stick the top with simple decisions. Basically keep your finger prints off my faberge eggs! Happy forging!
I don’t know about this game...
by unknown.................!! on 2019/04/16 18:22
I’m not trying to judge I just started playing this game but I think it’s expensive and it’s kind of boring to me and what can you even do you might say yea it’s just a noob but seriously after the tutorial what can you do produce stuff and that’s it I was lost but I have been reading the other reviews and haven’t even Contributed ever but I believe in the reviews and it says you need fixed the game and then we can everything expensive because it is why would you need an expansion for 200 diamonds also I don’t like how I need to Tutorial. They waste your diamonds for you I think you should have a choice because if you’re going to make everything so expensive with diamonds why should you spend 100 for ya And as this and as he said diamonds are very important so you just want people to pay for more some some people don’t want to waste money on a game so I think you should waste the money for them not money not even many diamonds but the damage in the game I like money but as I was saying I don’t know about the game because well it’s expensive it’s kind of boring and what can you do just Produce things I don’t mean maybe you should give it more than just one little tweak
Just another “free” game
by Blackhawk1019 on 2018/08/30 06:18
Like all the other 1 star reviews I have encountered all the same problems with this game. It does start off really good, but as you progress the game get almost impossible to do anything because you are moved to new neighborhoods with players at levels much higher the yours. If you don’t spend money to buy diamonds your progression will be unbearably long. I get attacked over 6 times a day by players at higher levels and they steal you production items. I asked the developer about how I keep getting attacked by higher level players and got a generic response of how I should collect my items right when they are done with production. Somehow player know to attack within 5 minutes of production being completed. Fair warning that this game is far from free even though the developer says it is possible with out spending money. Getting attacked constantly is frustrating enough to make you want to purchase the upgrade. Note to developer no need to write a response because I know how to contact you and your answer is already noted above. I know I can purchase city shields to stop the attacks. Now let’s see what kind of generic response the developer can come up with as to how they can solve all the above problems.
Broken endgame
by houseofpwncakes on 2019/05/02 13:53
Promising game with great music, graphics, and design. Frequent events with fun rewards that are manageable if you're a free-to-play player. The devs have clearly worked very hard on their product. Unfortunately, once you reach the contemporary era the game is completely unplayable for free players. PvP is forced on and there's no shield for getting raided; I have screenshots of 10 raids in a single day on my base (and each raid allows a player to loot your production buildings, preventing you from looting them yourself). Pay players will frequently attack you with armies that are 200% boosted by premium bases, using one troop 3-4 ages ahead of yours and 7 rogues (poorly balanced unit that automatically copies another unit in your army when it's attacked). Basically, there's no defense for free players against getting raided back to back with armies that are ages ahead of theirs and three times as boosted until all of their buildings are unusable. This happened basically every day for a month or two until I had to stop playing. Looking forward to a potential fix in the future because the game was otherwise designed with a lot of love.
Free to download, not free to play
by Mr. Coral on 2019/05/16 06:22
I have played this game a month or so and I always wait a bit to write a review. I was forced to write this review because this game ai has decided I needed to write something great about this game or give feedback. So to be transparent, this is what I submitted in my ticket to support.// This game is not free to play, maybe free to download but definitely not free to play. This game has many trips and falls all designed to get you to purchase diamonds in order to advance (let’s be realistic, its pay to play). This is not a strategy game, this is a build game of which I now feel hostage to do bi-daily maintenance on in order to not be plundered by much bigger opponents. Also, I cannot even do or complete daily events without being forced to use diamonds. I also cannot battle without using diamonds to replenish troops loses, unless I prefer to wait a tremendous amount of time to so-called play for free. I honestly believe this game is boring! I have played many mobile games through the years and this is the worst game I have played. I don’t see mayself playing this game much longer. Also, do I really need to have 10 plus accounts just to play 1 solid account and be able to advance in this game? I don’t think I do.
Frustrating on mobile
by Bhjsbbah on 2017/10/24 16:15
I like games of patience. This one is promising but when I started, my story quests were hindered by an internal error and by the time support fixed it, I was way ahead of the story quests and would have to do them after I already did them, which wastes time and resources. My name and profile seems to be that of an old man. I asked them to change it because I couldn't (it's the first quest) due to the internal error. It wasn't fixed. **update** I'm not stuck on the first quest. I'm stuck on the other quests because by the time the first quest was fixed, I was way ahead and have to basically redo everything I've already done. Like... Build 3 Stilt Houses. Why would I build 3 stilt houses when my population lives in tile roof houses and chalets? I lack the space and my population can't go down as they are all being used for production. Waste of time and resources. Makes it frustrating. I am, however, stuck in progressing in research because of a bug. I've researched and unlocked militia, but the game is saying I need to research it to progress. It also didn't give me the soldier barracks that came with completing the block. That's a serious bug or glitch. I did contact support. We'll see if they are any help.
HORRIBLE SUPPORT
by grideraaron on 2018/02/27 15:41
The game is a ton of fun while you can play it. I got banned because they claimed my kids were feeding me and avoiding the rest of the game. I have 5 kids who can verify different; we made in game trades for goods, blueprints, and forge points that were fair and according to the rules. They donated about 5k forge points and i gave them about 1k forge points back along with over 10k goods for a bunch of different ages. The rules are not based on actual facts, but rather the opinion of any given moderator at any given time. This is unfortunate, but ohh well. I would have given 1 star because of support, but the game is really fun. Update: well as expected there was no change even after they wasted my time. They should have just dropped it with my post. My kids wanted to keep playing but they wont unban them as they stated they are “only in iron age and it wont take them long to get back.” 3 of them had arcs and a few terrace farms. I don’t think the support people know how to play their own game. It took my kids 3-6months to get all the bps and it took me another month to donate fps to get the goods for them. The support is laughable at best. Lowering my stars to 1 for the way they treated my kids and will have my 2 older leave a review.
Worth the effort and it takes some effort
by Orofinogal on 2019/06/12 15:03
This game seems rather boring at first and is often hard to understand what is expected. Some information is available on the forums but to a newbie that can all be Greek! Once available find a good supportive guild! That is the most important thing. They should help you with your forge points, great buildings and answer questions. There is much more to this game than meets the eye so be patient! I also enjoy being able to have 2 or later 3 worlds and towns. Also visit other players towns often and see what they are doing. This will give you insight and you can ask your guild members questions about what you see. Great game but I will say that in order to progress you will need to purchase diamonds occasionally. I figure it is pretty cheap entertainment. Use the diamonds for play and don’t spend them unless you really consider the importance of your purchase. Then they are a good investment. Have fun!
Better reconstruction mechanics required
by T-Man135 on 2020/02/29 10:59
Adore the game I probably log on about 4 times a day, loving the saint patties days event, it’s really helping me move up quickly in the game!! wich I love I’ve had the game for like 4 days and I’m already on the Iron Age! not certain if that’s fast or not. I just thought it would’ve taken longer but I’m pleased to say it didn’t. but to the point of the review, I gave the game 3 stars in hopes it would catch an eye of a developer. Obviously, the way your empire is arranged is very important to the game I learned that day one. But to move buildings around to try to change your empire for the better it takes a significant amount of space, a feature to where you can move all your buildings into your inventory and start from scratch on your empire would really help the player move buildings to where I want them to be an overall redesign his or her empire for the better! And I’m my own opinion make the game 5 stars worth of fun! If this gets a response from a developer not only will it prove that y’all listen to players but I will change my rating :)
Fun to play
by Davidk8203 on 2019/06/30 04:56
I have played for months now. I have a sweet city and pvp all the time. I haven't spent a dime on the game and I have over 4k diamonds to spend if needed. People are whiners. This game is a lot of fun whether you want to build your city, fight others or chat. They have regular special events to get special buildings for questing. I only installed it to get a freebie on another game. That game was deleted months ago and I still play this. Joining a guild is easy and super beneficial. Try it. You will get hooked. P.S. People who think you must buy diamonds to play are not giving the game a chance and should probably find a different game. Maybe one with no challenge or strategy. People who spend diamonds will still get beat up by higher players because they are newbs. Slow down and develop your city and you won’t get attacked successfully as often. Ignore the trolls saying you have to pay to play. Try it for a week and find out for yourself.
Amazing game!!
by Güblermeister on 2017/09/26 12:59
All of these people on here complaining about it being slow or too hard. Why don't you go find a game you can fly through and stop trying to get them to ruin a great game. I've been playing it for months. It's challenging, has a lot of things to spend your time on, not to mention it's a blast to strategize what to do and what not to do with your city or what to spend your forge points on. I personally love that there are things like the great buildings that are next to impossible to get. It makes it hard and I like it that way. Oh and about it being expensive or having to spend diamonds. I call BS I haven't spent diamonds since the ones you get at the beginning of the game and I am all the way to the colonial age and working towards my 3rd great building. Please don't listen to the idiots that want the game nerfed. It's the reason amazing games like WOW have been ruined.
7 Year Veteran - originally a 5 and now a 2
by 7 Year Player on 2019/02/25 09:42
I have been playing for 7 years and considering discontinuing due to the increasing expense needed to play the game. The #1 trick they use to consume yourDiamonds is the cost to auto click and eliminate 100 plus moves. No big deal to not spend 5 diamonds sale on and click your self but by the time your in the Arctic phase you have to click 100s of time. even if you do pay it still makes you click 100 times because the auto clicks is too simple and does ask a few basic questions that would allow them to do more of the work for you. There seems to be also fewer player than in the past so there is less available trades. Another reason to finally call It a day. I think they have gotten 100s of dollars over 7 years most in the past year. I don’t mind spending some money but I would have expected logical improvements to like I described above in return for my funds. As one of your most loyal clients I am guessing I will not get a response or taken seriously but I am likely a conduit for many other original players who are thinking of bailing.
Ok game until
by Rich121070 on 2018/11/17 11:51
The game is somewhat fun until you get to a certain age and are attacked and looted incessantly by man children who won’t level because they’re so large they can attacked anyone and plunder them without fear of retailing. The game caters to this. There is no requirement to level up so these people sit there and make themselves rich and you miserable on a daily basis and the developers love this. It’s like you high school football team having to play multiple NFL teams everyday. And their wonderful response to this will be “you can get a shield” which means you have to spend over a week collecting “visits” to your tavern from 80 or more friends on a daily basis for the pleasure of being left alone for a few days. Or pick up your loot on time which turns you into an anxiety ridden mess setting alarms and stopping whatever the thing you’re doing in real life because they allow some over grown a holes with no lives of their own to constantly feed off you instead of enforcing them to level and take on people at their own level. This is a constant theme of all their games and I’m extremely tired of them.
Don’t waste your time
by Lou Pru on 2019/12/19 12:44
I’ve played this game for a number of years. When I first started 6 years ago, the developers were very generous in giving rewards. For example when you motivated or polished another player using an example of 50 friends, you would acquire a BP (blue print) for a GB (Great Building) approximately 10 +- a day. Now with 80 friends I’m lucky if I acquire 1-2 a day. Other rewards too numerous to list here, have become have been reduced to segments. For example, a wishing well which can randomly produce free diamonds, goods, coins and supplies use to be rewarded as a complete building. Now you are offered a segment of a wishing well meaning you must acquire 15 fragments of a wishing well to build one complete wishing well. One must realize that the game is FREE but if you wish to advance through the different eras and be competitive you will purchase diamonds. One needs to pay the salaries of the developers and companies don’t start a business to loose money in the long run. The game is significantly unbalanced to players in the the low eras: Bronze Age, Iron Age, Middle Ages etc it’s a very slow advancing game in real time. My suggestion is to look elsewhere.
Free to play?
by Brian281993 on 2019/08/31 16:23
While sure the game is technically free to play it’s almost very very slow if you play that way to the point were it’s not even fun. I get the game is a marathon but I also understand what the developers are trying to do what is make the game so slow and boring so that users use real cash to make the game fun. Sadly all mobile games and even more and more console and pc games are going this is way what is sad. Personally I don’t mind paying money to play a game considering all my games on my pc cost money and I even refer the old ways instead of this “freemium model” of continuous payments that get you barely anywhere but the fact that micro transactions in this game don’t get you much is ridiculous. I’ve seen buildings in the game cost as much as $40 when you convert everything especially with the new bidding system. You could easy send $200 on the game and it would barely get you anywhere. The amount of greed is too greet. If you can justify why a pixelated building is worth $40 when I can purchase an entire computer game on steam and be done and just play the game without micro transactions to make it remotely fun then I’m heading back to pc.
Good idea! And immersive world. But too much fishing and too many bugs
by Ditte81iowa on 2019/12/20 20:48
The idea of this game is fun, and I’ll likely keep playing it. I would not recommend it, though. It has bugs, and a lot of them. First: it says you will get diamonds, if you invite friends. This isn’t True! We’ve tried it twice now, and all you get is a long nose, and you don’t even get to be in the same world (even if you follow message link). There are other kinks. Like: now I’m stuck on a winter event star quest, that isn’t acknowledging infiltrating provinces, and the so called negotiations are just an attempt to get the players to spend diamonds (which cost money). Loads of elements to the game like that. Get you stuck. Won’t let you get unstuck without diamonds, and loads of them. I get they made the game to make money, but it is a shame. Maybe it’ll be a better game with bug fixing? I like that new layers keep being added as you progress. However, the element of aggression I could have done without (player vs player, where random people can attack your city).
What is going on with the game?
by Ms. I Love to Read on 2019/03/20 18:29
It seems like ever since there was an update this last time, the game doesn’t want to load, and there is nothing wrong with my internet connection since I can play my other games with NO issues, only this one is giving me trouble now. I have shops trying to produce but I can get to hem before I’m raided and lose what I’m trying to produce...for over an hour I’ve been waiting for the game to load...all I see are animated leaves falling on the screen, but NO game, so I finally had to give up...is someone going to fix this and how can I get my goods back?! It’s been a couple of days now since I first wrote this post, and I’m back because I’m still having issues...I’m trying to do one of them challenges to earn military people from my current timeframe...snipers, etc., but I can’t even get back into my game. I can access my other games, it not this one, and I’ve rebooted twice and still nothing....is someone working on this issue??
Thoughts
by By Miguel7656! on 2018/12/02 05:00
I have been pondering thoughts that may improve the game. I hope you it may help. I was thinking on how to improve the GE quality. I've been reading and the forum says our goal for Expeditions is to protect our territory in our land and expand our territory. Well why don't you guys do that. Every time a guild gets 1st place you should award them with land but they can only get 1st like 15 times (Don't want to make it to easy to get land), 2nd place winners gets goods from other guilds who lost below 5th place, 3rd place winners will receive an army legionnaire from their period, 4th place winners get supplies and 5th place winners get a nice pat on the back by getting gold. I know the places are only up to three but I think there should really be five. There are other ideas but I think this is a major one to discuss and if u can, may u make it so players maay have a 90 degree turning ratio for their buildings. Thanx 😋
PAYWALL ALERT
by TopKupo on 2018/05/26 20:08
I finally decided to be patient with this game seeing as how it actually takes time and lots of patience to build your own little empire. Don’t get me wrong, it’s really fun and surprisingly social. Other players are helpful and there are some okay benefits from helping others; the biggest being willful reciprocation from other players. However, after almost two months, I have advanced my empire to the Early Middle Ages where I have noticed a huge paywall at the BEGINNING of the research tree. I have never seen such a blatant paywall after spending so much time on a mobile game where most of my playtime was fair and free. I don’t plan on buying diamonds (premium currency), so I’d either have to farm them through expeditions or occurrences, which barely give you more than 10 diamonds each and rarely drop them, or quit playing to avoid wasting more time on a paywall that’s gonna hold me back from advancing a substantial part of the game. If you were gonna hit players with a paywall, do it sooner. This review was supposed to be four stars, but that paywall frustrated me entirely.
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!
Good but constantly lags
by Mlew85 on 2020/04/05 13:22
I’ve been playing this game for a couple of years and am in the artic future. I could have got here faster if I paid but to date, I haven’t spent a dime. I would leave it 5 stars but over the past several months, the game has been lagging. It’s not my connection as all my other apps are fine. Examples of lagging: you attack the opponent in battle and wait between 30-60 seconds for the game to register. Another example: when collecting coins and supplies, I can collect everything from my buildings and then wait for another 15-20 seconds before it catches up. I keep getting the spinning wheel as everything catches up and it really slows gameplay and destroys the user experience. It would be 5 stars otherwise. Update Apr 5, 2020: game is still slow and it feels slower than it was. Now it’s crashing at least one a day. I’m the Egypt world, I battle and then it crashes. In my city, it still takes almost a minute to catch up from collecting supplies and coins. It’s super frustrating. This happens regardless of being on WiFi or cell data. My other games/apps are fine, it’s just Forge of Empires.
Fun to a certain Point.....then walk away
by Ranger lover! on 2020/03/10 01:39
Love the concept building the cities throughout various ages. Made it to the modern ages. I agree with others that there is a certain point where you must purchase diamonds in order to sufficiently advance. For the developer who stated they made it through the entire game without purchasing diamonds, i imagine it’s because you know the rules. I understand thats where the app makes money. Two items that seem to be irritating and have now caused me to NEVER buy any more diamonds 1) plundered by user which mysteriously happens after diamond purchases 2) poorly documented instructions with regards to rules, advancing to levels, defeating armies, etc. that is only available through Wiki. Come on guys! Move instructions within the app. Flesh them out to where they’re actually valuable rather than a sentence or two as is the case with the majority of them. It’s like a 7th grader documented it for extra credit. Take pride in the game. It’s fun but needs to be fine tuned
Needs more diversity
by Jayline87 on 2018/02/16 13:23
I just went to change my profile pic in the game and noticed that out of 170 characters there are only 9 black ones- 3 male, 6 female. You need to add more options for players with black skin other than black knight, black man with a turban and football player. I can imagine how black people feel when they go to pick a profile pic and its just an endless sea of white characters. Aside from that I love playing this game. Unlike other games of its kind, there’s so much to do that you never really get to a point where you’re done growing and it becomes repetitive. I also really love the social aspect of it to. You can have your own city, but you can help out others and others can help you so that you benefit and joining a group or guild is great because you’re helping each other out further and working as a team while you build your own city. There are always quests and challenges so you’re never going to get bored.
Time = $
by UnicornStud33 on 2017/10/05 22:17
This is a great game. Easy to understand, develop strategy, solo or guild play, you can make your way through the ages with ease. The basic components of farming and combat mixed with resources is par for the course. The interesting add to this game is the notable persons we all know through our ages, like Gandhi, Marilyn Monroe, DaVinci, etc... There are quests to complete to attain an avitar and rewards along the way. I'd say good for social, educational, strategic minds. The fundamentals are there for competitive drive as well. I'm down to blaze and play this game in tandem with others that I am fond of. You can spend money to develop your community faster, but it's not required. Kudos to the development team. You have a great gem here. The music is cool sometimes...but does have some much needed room to improve. Also, I feel more opportunities to win diamonds/rare buildings would inspire me to invest more time on the game....talking: giveaways. Bravo!
Pretty neat game.
by Gore88 on 2018/08/12 06:01
I’ve only been playing for about 24 hours or so. I’ll update after a week or so of playing but so far. I’m enjoying this game. Don’t look at it as a pay to win bc honestly, what mobile games aren’t? Just sit back and relax, and enjoy the ride. It’s normal when it comes to the building but still different than Clash of Clans or other base simulator games. I like that you can actually strategize battles and it’s even on a honeycomb battlefield! I personally enjoy honeycomb battlefields and happy to see this game has it. Think Fire Emblem. And if you haven’t played Fire Emblem, you’re missing out. Especially if you don’t at least give this game a try. I’m looking forward to progressing through the ages regardless of the time it may take and even considering becoming a volunteer for them. With that said, hope you give this game a try with an open mind and patience.
Long term strategy game
by Grand High Witch 111 on 2021/01/15 15:59
This is kind of an odd game. Despite what some of the one and two star reviews say you do not have to buy diamonds to play. As a matter of fact the game is more fun if you don’t. But (and this is a big but) you have to be an incredibly patient player. This is not the kind of game you can beat in 36 hours and then move to the next game on your list, as a matter of fact this game technically has no end. I have been playing it for over a year and I am still in the Late Middle Ages. This is the ultimate strategy game. It is also a community game which is usually not my thing. I am not usually a big fan of group games but I like this because I build my own world but belong to a “guild” and yes some of them do have rules that change over time and many will kick you out if you don’t abide by them. So find a guild that suits your playing style and play along because this actually is a fun game once you figure out you don’t need to buy diamonds to have a good time
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.
Facebook Problem
by tekarakatz123 on 2019/08/28 13:41
You need to remove the ability to link to Facebook or make it so if players who do it that it truly does create a real account. Jumping threw hoops to fix a game when I am a new player only for months to end up with a glitched game even you can’t fix was not a fun experience. I ended up giving up after five months even though I loved the game because you kept finding a new problem each time and you were never even able to register my account when you tried several times. Each time I was asked the same questions and I answered the same. No support could fix my account but many tried. Removed game since it is broken. Why play a broken account even the developer can’t fix. Update to your response: It is not worth contacting support again they said it can’t be fixed and stoped responding a few days ago. If I knew in the beginning of April of 2019 what I know now I could have just just made a new game and not wasted my money on the broken one when I first joined. Customer support is horrible and all I want to do is help fix this amazing game I fell in love with.
Interesting Game...But Enjoyable
by Prof IP on 2018/01/26 22:28
I enjoy the game to advance critical think in balances finances and sacrifices, and just get away for the drudgeries of the working day to manufacturer a virtual world! There are a few areas that might be enhancements. 1) Incentives to visit my Tavern (Happy Hour) 2) The ability to advance technology faster in any given age, such as genius or mad scientist to help advance your game during the particular era 3) More variety in avatars that advance as you advance in your game 4) The price of certain tools, such as Forge Points, increase much to fast for the era in which you are working. 5) A more interactive function allowing one to barter goods and services. Not seeing the benefit of polishing, while being paid by those that are polishing. 6) Would like more control of Empire Defenses...cannot discern what level of defenses are in place, especially after you fortify you city that would PVP to continuously breach. Frustrating in not understand how that can be prevented even though there is very little discernible damage, aside for looting. 7) Would like a countdown clock on the delivery of goods from your Great Building. 8) Tavern Occupancy Meter tends to stall or become stuck 9) Medals continue to be a mystery in terms of count needed for expansion 10) Would prefer to pay for in-Apps purchases using gift cards or via a separate Games Store, when possible! Otherwise, still a fan of the Game!
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.

FOE

Very interesting game. I enjoy this very much. But, how do you pause the game?
Warning - Highly Addictive Game
by BattleBeagle on 2021/02/23 03:42
Three years on FoE, and I still learn new cool things. I hate interacting with every other game. But I Have found a community here. Other games drift in and out of my world. But I am a helpless Forger for life. :)
Very enjoyable.

Enjoyable.
Very addicting, my new favorite game
by Dmsanfrancisco on 2021/02/22 03:00
I love this game, it’s so addicting and my new favorite game. It can get a bit pricey if you purchase diamonds which helps speed up some parts of the game. It does start off a bit confusing but after I got the hang of everything I love it. They do have some tutorials which help but wish it was clearer at the beginning but all in all a great game!
Awesome Game
by Augystine Titus on 2021/02/20 18:53
This is a neat little game - a combination it seems of Civilization and Age of Wonders. Excellent game overall!
Great game

It takes a while to do things tho
Great game
by pepatti-359 on 2021/02/18 16:26
I enjoy this very much.you do have to be careful & plan your expenses because they can climb but I seldom have to go overboard. In my guild, the Fair Traders,they are very helpful.
Lives Up To The Hype
by Quidzark on 2021/02/18 15:50
Excellent game all around. Simple to get started, multiple strategy options, good graphics/lay-out, well designed. After playing for a couple of hours, I spent 9.99 Modest In-App purchase well worth it. Will most likely make a couple more. I paid $40-$60 for the Civ games when they came on cd’s Don’t mind shelling out $9.99 once a month or so for a game of equal quality. I look at it as an installment plan😀
Good game

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

Why does it reset my game ???
Needs an update
by RussianManChan1 on 2021/02/16 02:55
Ill change my review to 5 if they bring back the swipe collect. Its bad that they got rid of that. Would also be cool if they let you collect over 100fp
Plundering is ruining the game
by NorCalBug on 2021/02/15 23:11
I been playing the game for about 2 months now, and used to really enjoy the game. Recently though, the joy is just being sucked out of it for me because of increased frequency of plundering, an aspect of the game I thoroughly dislike and from which I derive no pleasure, and especially by players that are so advanced that there is no earthly way I can compete. I play games to relax and enjoy, and as soon as that ceases, it’s time for me to move on. I am fast approaching that point. I wish the developers would reconsider this aspect of the game, because it caters to a tiny minority, but it ruins the fun and enjoyment for far more people than it satisfies.
Great game to play
by EchoBLegacy on 2021/02/14 22:43
I enjoy playing this game
Love this game
by cheyenne_t09 on 2021/02/14 17:31
Definitely recommend trying this one! It’s awesome. You have to use strategy to advance and helps to have teamwork.
Diamonds
by ethano2005 on 2021/02/14 11:04
I’ve lost a lot of diamonds because there is no “are you sure about this purchase” kind of thing. Just with the pandemic when I do have a few extra dollars it really is disappointing to loose them so easily and often. Other then that absolutely awesome game guys!
MY FAVOURITE GAME!

Didn’t get support
by LUKEDOG28 on 2021/02/13 19:03
Cancelled my game. Too expensive and their support for botched purchases is pathetic.
Money grab
by OneEyedWilly2 on 2021/02/13 16:44
This was a good idea gone bad. I very quickly got to a point that I couldn’t build new buildings without diamonds and the only way to get diamonds was to buy them. No thanks.
Pay to play
by name not taken uwu on 2021/02/13 12:52
Get ready to pay for everything in this game, unless you don't mind waiting days for simple resources.
Where did my account go
by kingdogman237 on 2021/02/13 05:12
When I went to play again I was at the game medieval age but then I saw MY HOLE TOWN WAS GONE AND I LOST MY PROGRESS please fix that but is a good game but please fix it.
Stealing my rewards 😠
by Pastor Philip on 2021/02/13 01:04
Game is not enjoyable in that the play is not apparent or intuitive at all!! The fact that you spend hard earned rewards only to later have them stolen away by thieves is a great example for children and teens that hard work has no point and why earn when you can steal. It’s about Craftiness rather than ingenuity. Not a good game.
😡😡😡
by MatthewRadz on 2021/02/11 20:59
The tech tree makes no sense, and I was at the EMA and then I was reset!!
Fun to play but unable to add friends
by LanzaStar on 2021/02/11 09:58
It’s nice to play so far and I’m liking it however, I’m unable to add friends (that I actually know) why is it no matter how many times I double check we are in the same world. I can’t find my friends. Is it a bug or glitch or something. When will it be fixed?
Issues logging in
by JohnnyOSF on 2021/02/11 07:01
Hi team, having a great time getting into the game. Unfortunately I started having issues logging in and the app is telling me I lost connection and I am not connected to game center. Please fix this problem and let me know how I can make up for lost time advancing my city. Had multiple progress activities going on at the same time.
Nice

Perfect Game!!
by BoomerB1972 on 2021/02/08 13:41
I love city building games and FoE is about as good as you can get. For a mobile game, this one is near perfect in every way. This game seems simple at the start but the more you get into it, the more deep it gets. Huge amount of buildings to choose from. Build your city how it works best for you. Moving up in age is meant to take time. Don’t rush it. Stay in each age for several months. Build up your army strength, level up your Great Buildings. Join a helpful guild that can give you tips. Interact with players from out there in the real world. The game never gets boring, always something to do. The dev’s create special events which are fun and challenging to get special reward buildings. The game actually has a huge learning curve. Google and YouTube tutorials are Your best friend til you figure out everything. No annoying pop up adds disrupt your play. You can play every single aspect of the game without purchasing diamonds (the games premium currency) but obviously buying and using diamonds can speed things up. The game also gives you chances to win diamonds through the Guild Expedition and more. Some players complain about lack of land space but that’s part of the fun challenge, trying to squeeze everything into your city. Some players complain about being plundered. Well, erect a city shield, boost up your city defense army, level up military great buildings, collect your buildings as soon as they spawn, build a Galata Tower, it’ll stop thieves in their tracks. I’m amazed that players in the higher up ages still don’t set up an 8 unit defensive army to help protect their city. If players actually took the time to learn everything there is to know about the game, there would be zero whining about such things. I’ve been playing for over three years now and have yet to be bored. I can’t say that about any other game I’ve ever played. The dev’s have fine tuned every single aspect of this game to near perfection. The support team is extremely helpful if you have any issues, they will bend over backwards to try and help you. Unlike a lot of app games, FoE is very reliable. Game crashes are rare. Glitches are also rare and when they do occur, they are fixed quickly. The only problem with this game is that I enjoy it so much resulting in me never getting around to do odd jobs around the house haha! Bravo Inno, you created an amazing game.
Research
by ff flameout on 2021/02/07 14:13
System requires 1.2 m in supplies to "UNLOCK". I have 1.2m plus and yet the system WILL NOT UNLOCK.
The update is suppressing the game
by Its good 24227 on 2021/02/07 13:58
I used to have forge of empires awhile ago, and it really was fun back then due to pvp including everyone. Nowadays you have to research for a whole week just to unlock that feature. Why is pvp important? It’s helpful In getting resources faster and to expand the map giving you more stuff to do to expand your empire. Since I’m still in the Iron Age starting over again, I cannot attack players since most of them have not unlocked pvp yet. It is frustrating because upon visiting their city, I saw clear signs that the player opened the game and then left permanently. Attacking lower levels is unfair to active players, but most of them aren’t ever going to be active anyways. It is robbing the challenge and activity of the players that are actually playing and active. This decision is not only a huge mistake, but it also makes new players wanting to leave immediately due to being able not to do anything. I know you updated the game to make sure more people are satisfied of staying in the game, but you are actually doing the exact opposite. Unless this is fixed soon, a lot of new players will quit altogether, including me.
Boring
by colbyhouse on 2021/02/07 07:27
I’ve been playing this game for a few years now. It was fun for a while, but I’m at a point where it’s the same thing over and over. Even the holiday extra games used to be fun, but now they don’t even leave them up for very long. I’m probably going to delete game from my iPad because it’s so boring I forget to play it. I don’t understand why I have any supplies or money because you can’t do anything with it after awhile.
Play your way
by Fludunky on 2021/02/07 02:44
Whether you are aggressive or peaceful player, game can be played to suit your style. No single right way to play. Whether you can play a lot or not so much, you will enjoy.
Be careful👍
by DDBColorado on 2021/02/06 16:31
This game provides lots of entertainment and different challenges! FOE has been a very positive distraction during the pandemic. The only thing you need to prepare for is that it can be borderline “addictive.” You can find yourself spending hours a day as you get further into it.
Only good if it’s your first time you playing.
by the real OggoR on 2021/02/06 03:48
Tutorial is garbage, and a waste of time. Game puts you wherever it wants when you accept an invite link, instead of in the same world of the player that sent it. I’ll stick with clash of clans until they figure out how to program games
Keeps crashing

Hello
by impostor 2 on 2021/02/03 16:14
Hello I am a player who has played multiple cities in foe and in my opinion it is a amazing game but I wish there was a mode where you could walk around your city but only be able to walk inside the town hall cause I think it would be amazing to walk around a city - just my honest opinion
Decent
by 🐰💕🐻💕 on 2021/02/03 14:48
FOE is a great builder style game. It has enough group activities and events to keep you interested for years. There are only two problems with the game that prevent it from being a 5 star app. 1st is the 24hr world timer on your daily resource collection. The timer makes you wait 24hrs from the time you collect to respawn those resources. For example if you are playing on your phone and want to collect your daily resources during your lunch break but someone tries to chat you up for 5 minutes you have then lost those 5 minutes because you must wait at least 24hrs to collect again. And well if this happens again and again you can see how eventually you will lose entire days worth of resource collection. Other games I have played used 20 or 23hr world timers to give players more freedom but as FOE is roughly 4yrs old at the time of writing this they clearly intend to stick with this format. 2nd as you can trade resources across the “Ages” it means you can obtain the best buildings (great buildings) at any point in the game provided you are able to farm enough expansion tiles to place them. This leaves players little incentive to move up to next age. Indeed it actually makes many features of the game harder. Which is really a shame because the art and the work in general that they put into these ages is kinda amazing.
Be careful what you purchase
by tcrbwlp on 2021/02/03 09:25
Ive been totally ripped off for the second time purchasing diamonds. The first time was to finish the carnival event and not this time was the football event. Both times I’ve purchased diamonds to complete the event but mysteriously the diamonds weren’t credited and once again I’ve messaged back and forth four days now just to still not have the purchase items nor credit to my account. And since the event ends tomorrow they will once again have successfully stretched out the simple fix long enough to negate the entire purpose of my purchase. The first time I chalked it up to a fluke, now I see it’s clearly a strategy🤯🤬😤
Not for offline
by Ajax Fox on 2021/02/02 19:48
I played this game a bit and got bored quite often. The progression doesn’t feel rewarding. It’s definitely a pay to play game. I also tried to play when the T-Mobile network was down in my area and it wouldn’t let me play! After data was back up and I was able to sign in, all my progress was deleted. Not worth my time.
Erroneous Purchases Recorded
by navycamp on 2021/02/02 12:33
A erroneous purchase of diamonds occurred. Nothing was added to my balance. A report was sent to Apple.
It keeps me sane
by ssilverton2 on 2021/02/01 18:58
Since I have been stuck indoors for a YEAR I need fascinating activities to help me escape mentally. This game absolutely does it for me. I have 5 cities now: one in asteroids, one on Mars, one in Colonial America, and 2 in the Middle Ages. I can play this one all day! 5 stars

This game is epic. So addictive! It isn’t p2w, yes you can advance a lot quicker with diamonds, but I am fairly advanced and haven’t paid a dime. I still think a toggleable chat filter could be cool cause the chat and messages can get a little crazy, but really a great game!
Great game!!!
by skyrim2219 on 2021/01/31 18:55
This game is amazing! I think I’ve been playing for about four years, in my spare time I just log on and go. You do not need to spend money unless you want to. Diamonds come free. Medals come free. Ill be honest I spend some money in game because it’s become my hobby. But I didn’t start until like contemporary era. All you need is the right buildings and the right guild helps too. Or team. Yes the first couple ages are easier to get through, then it gets a little harder. Early in the game you do need to set your defense, by building army buildings and going into your army select a warrior and set them as your city defense. They should highlight in blue. This will help guard you some from plunderers. So heads up, people will battle you without you knowing and they can take your goods. Way to avoid this, make sure to collect when your goods are done. Then they won’t have anything to take. As far as the map, you progress on it as you do in the city. Don’t try to complete it all in one go. Otherwise yes you will be spending diamonds. You need stronger armies the further you go. You will get all the resources in the end so be patient. If you don’t want to invest the time to play the long game this really isn’t for you. But if you enjoy building and creating a city from the ground up with great graphics, and so much to do( events, quests, story line, daily challenges, bidding wars in the market, building smaller cities in your city, guilds, expeditions, etc)then this could be for you. Only build goods buildings that are boosted by what goods you have. I could go on and on on tips to help get started. This is a game about strategy. Rome wasn’t built in a day. If you happen to join world Fel Dranghyr look me up, be happy to help! Empress Kaleyne
Awesome!

Forge of Empires has been an awesome way to spend time I would probably spend whining during the pandemic. It also keeps my mind sharp! Thank you, Inno!
Boom!
by why bother🤔 on 2021/01/31 16:37
Ok my mind is blown I literally just got this game today and love it.It reminds me of clash of clans but in this you can upgrade and build stuff way faster.Nothing you need to change all I can say is this game is awesome!
All they care about is your money
by Simsim@12 on 2021/01/30 21:59
Money money money, once the free game gets you hooked it’s all about getting you to spend that next dollar.
Venus or Bust
by Mo4les on 2021/01/30 18:52
Forge of Empires is a great game, but the developers have to stay on top of getting new ages/eras added to the game. Without these types of additions, there is no incentive for advanced level players to continue. New ages/eras should be coming out every 6-9 months from the developers. Failure to add these regularly will mean a slow death for FoE.
Good, butttt
by DeservedIntolerance on 2021/01/30 07:52
Needs a way to store buildings off the grid so that you can rearrange the city. No room to move anything around when you expand because everything overlaps.

Crash galore

Cons: Inno rarely fixes any glitches, app crashes all the time. Making mobile playing almost impossible Pros: support usually does an okay job. Game can be played competitively for free despite in game purchase opportunities
Dumb and Boring
by 1/2 round on 2021/01/27 14:12
I’m a huge fan of RTS and city builder games. This game is dumb and boring. Unless you buy their diamonds you will not progress well. The storyline is boring. The functions like “reconstruction” are garbage. The battles are utterly boring and uneventful. Don’t waste your time.
Incroyable

It keeps saying login failed. Fetching player from portal failed. I tried using email, Game Center, Apple ID, and Facebook. What a joke.
Okay game

It’s kind of disappointing that you have to buy diamonds but overall pretty fun
Trying this game
by pioneer dude 55t on 2021/01/21 23:36
I liked for a little while but ........ A lot of stuff cost diamonds and when I wanted to get more troops I have to get more building supplies and they don’t give you much diamonds and Diamond cost money to get more too and they only give you like 300 so sometimes you’re stuck in a jam when you can’t get stuff so I hope they change his game and you should think it over before you download it
With shield still plundered
by Helshira on 2021/01/19 13:52
Doesn’t matter if i have a shield to protect my goods. People still steal goods. Goods I’ve been waiting for 24 hours. After many years of playing I’m done. It’s so Stupid someone can take goods you pay and wait to make.
Great game!
by STUDENT!!!!😭😭😭😭 on 2021/01/18 16:59
I have been playing for a few months and my dad got me into this game. The beginning is a bit slow, but as you advance you start to spend hours and hours on it. There is NO need to spend any money and is a great strategy game. The events add something special and I can’t stop. Thank you so much for this great experience. I also love the fact that most guilds are so supportive and there are many friendly people who you can meat everywhere
Not a city building game.
by Dragon Lover 2,508 on 2021/01/18 04:10
This is a war strategy game, not a city building game. I’ve been playing for over 500 days, have reached the postmodern level and haven’t spent a penny. Although I have enjoyed the game until now, I can say that I think I’m near the end. The problem is the Great Buildings. So many other players, the majority it seems, acquire something called The Arc along with other battle level increasing structures. Then they spend their time plundering you. They have no population. No manufacturing. Just theft and robbery. How do you defeat someone who has a 900% boost in battle. You’re left the bug on their windshield with no recourse. Even a city shield is futile . You can’t acquire more land as all land is controlled by battle or real cash. You can’t barter anymore because all your manufacturing is plundered. The special games the developers run like football are really fun. But the rest of it has stopped being fun because of the blatant theft. This is a great game if you are, or want to teach your kid, to be a bully.
Love it

The game is good the graphics are amazing I never played a game like this one👍
Forge of Empires
by Flamerdude105 on 2021/01/17 02:52
A lot of fun at first but then expanding your city to add buildings to produce supplies that allow you to advance in the game is nearly impossible!! Way too much money needs to be invested and even THEN YOU CAN’T EXPAND YOUR CITY!! Very frustrating!!
Promotes bullying
by NevadaGlass on 2021/01/16 13:33
Promotes bullying as it allows thieves to steal and attack your city daily for months on end without the ability to block players who spend all of their time targeting other players- developer responded pvp is allowed at all levels of game- being attacked by the same player daily for 3 months and having your city robbed by same isnt pvp - its targeting - 3 Months of targeting by same players is in fact bullying. There are specific areas for pvp in game from map menu but it shouldn't be constant in your own city.- not enough tokens to maintain city shield as the earn rate is low. I used to play daily, not so much anymore because of hostile players. I could understand pvp by people from the same era or lower, but allowing players from higher levels and eras to attack daily for months, reinforces top players to constantly steal from lower level players. That then trains people to harvest from lower levs to progress but makes you hate people you dont even know because they attack you daily. It also prevents lower levels from successfully growing because they are constantly harvested. You cant buy city shields from tavern unless you earn enough credits which is accomplished by getting people to visit your tavern. The rates are high so its not a daily task. I havent explored using diamonds but there have been plenty of reviews on being forced to use diamonds so i wont comment on that since i have spent real cash on diamonds. Bottom line, you will start to dislike people alot because of this game.....i continue to play because I have 2 years invested in this game but it is a frustrating experience.

THIS GAME IS THE BEST
by hdnhsn on 2021/01/15 19:34
All the other civilization building games I play are TERRIBLE, but this one, no, this one made it easier to get the buildings and even does special events! I can’t deny that this one is THE best civilization building game that I have come across.
Best game ever

Long term strategy game
by Grand High Witch 111 on 2021/01/15 15:59
This is kind of an odd game. Despite what some of the one and two star reviews say you do not have to buy diamonds to play. As a matter of fact the game is more fun if you don’t. But (and this is a big but) you have to be an incredibly patient player. This is not the kind of game you can beat in 36 hours and then move to the next game on your list, as a matter of fact this game technically has no end. I have been playing it for over a year and I am still in the Late Middle Ages. This is the ultimate strategy game. It is also a community game which is usually not my thing. I am not usually a big fan of group games but I like this because I build my own world but belong to a “guild” and yes some of them do have rules that change over time and many will kick you out if you don’t abide by them. So find a guild that suits your playing style and play along because this actually is a fun game once you figure out you don’t need to buy diamonds to have a good time
Never trust paying this company
by Katmikk on 2021/01/15 15:33
The company put burden of proof on user rather than them checking what they received. Also, you may pay and not receive what you paid for, then again n the burden of proof on the user, not them checking what they’ve collected. It’s a convenient way to cheat users

Can be fun
by casual gamer D on 2021/01/11 02:51
A good guild and new friends are the reason to play this game. It is possible for a patient player to never spend a dime and do very well, having fun! Without a good guild, without making new friends and encouragement/help for each other the game grows disappointing fast. Trade is mainly how I play and I have played about 2 years so far. Combat can be fun as well because it is not automatically player vs. player, which I don’t like. When we battle as a guild against other guilds that is often fun. However be warned, this game is populated by real people, and with real people you get nice and jerks. I like the way they are always seeking to give us new challenges and they do work to correct errors. I don’t like errors and glitches which do plague this game, however they are no worse than most other games I have played.
Too many unnecessary clicks
by Twilson420 on 2021/01/09 21:26
The issue described below has been resolved! Thanks so much! Another suggestion.... On mobile, you recently introduced ability to collect all bldgs for 5 diamonds. Love it! I would like to see same offered for aiding all friends, guild members, neighborhood. Diamonds paid for each option obviously. If you aid everyone everyday, that’s roughly 200+ daily clicks or taps (assuming max number of friends and guild mates). If you run multiple worlds, that adds up fast. I halve literally quit guilds that require aiding because my hands hurt from all the clicking. I should probably just give up the game, but I love it SO much! Anything you could do to cut down on non strategic clicking would be most appreciated! Even if I have to pay diamonds for it. ————— Issue described below have been fixed! Thanks! Another suggestion...tavern visits from Townhall...would be nice if that worked like aiding. Click on a tavern to visit, no pop ups to close, and the icon greys out so you know who’ve you visited that tavern and can’t visit again until eligible. If you really care what that tavern looks like, access from your friends list. ———————————— Inside the Townhall, it keeps a list of which players have aided you over the past several days. You can then click a gold star to provide aid to that player in return. Once you have aided a player, Ideally, it should disable the gold star for all future occurrences of that player. But it doesn’t. When you click on the player a second time, it pops up a notification stating that you can’t aid that player right now. You then have to click OK to dismiss the notification. When you do this 50 or 60 times it gets annoying! Another scenario that arises, you try to aid a player but there’s no Buildings open to be aided. I don’t need to know that I couldn’t aid that player, That player needs to know that I tried. And the game does notify that player that i tried but there was nothing available to be aided. So why bother notifying me and making me dismissed yet another useless notification?

Good, with one frustration
by Miggyt_DC on 2021/01/05 05:11
It’s a good, chill builder game for long-game enthusiasts. Moves quickly enough that I rarely if ever feel pressured to purchase diamonds (which are used to speed the clock). One major flaw : Limiting the size/proportion choice for items makes the game unnecessarily frustrating... and may eventually be the single reason to abandon play. (For two reasons) Reason 1) Not giving players a choice of proportion (ie a 3x5 building isn’t ALSO offered as a 5x3 building) limits creativity, which chips away at ownership of the city being built... which will lead to player abandoning the game early. Reason 2) The game is dynamic/complex enough that giving the choice (3x5 and 5x3) will only minimally impact the difficulty level of the main game. Further, this minimal impact can also easily be offset by changing some other aspect of the game to keep difficulty where it was in the first place. Give us the choice. Let us build our cities with a bit more flexibility to make it truly our own... then you’d get 5 stars.

This game has nothing to offer. If you don’t wanna spend a crap load of money you won’t get anywhere, even in the early ages.I get emails sent to other players names and shows their email addresses. This game will never be recommended. Worst ever.

I believe this game needs one more thing
by Pasha_21 on 2021/01/02 20:38
I am always wishing to redo my city but there is never room to move something somewhere else. So I believe there should be something to where if you press on it saves your old city and you are able to make a new city with the same things you had before. If that was on this game then I would love it so much more. Than you for reading.
Same old...

Here’s a cool Christmas Quest, it’s 9 stages and will probably take you 20 days. Cool, you completed it. It will cost you $50 to get the reward. Here’s a side quest to build a secondary village. You need to develop 8 technologies, and every one will cost you $5 worth of diamonds...
Negotiations 0 effort
by raz344567787 on 2020/12/28 01:41
Game is fun but when it comes to having to negotiate a win instead of fighting.. it’s complete randomness. At least make it a puzzle to figure out , seems like there’s no rhyme or reason for it at all except to take your resources
Not getting any help from support.
by ghecrheccw on 2019/06/20 22:08
I messaged support for some help because there’s a glitch with the mass supply rushes not working for all of my supply buildings. They used to work just fine but now they only work on one out of my 4 buildings that only produce supplies. It’s very frustrating when your in an event and the things that are supposed to help you with the event don’t and then it’s worse when the people you send a message to refuse to even admit there’s an issue. They instead choose to talk to you like your stupid or lying. I don’t understand what the issue is myself there is a glitch, saying thank you for making us aware of the issue, we will work on fixing it sorry for any inconvenience or unnecessary frustration it has caused. Thank you for your patience while we fix the problem so you can keep enjoying the game. I don’t think saying something like that is to much to ask of anybody. And in my opinion is far more professional then avoiding the glitch and acting like I’m lying about it or that I don’t know what I’m talking about. What could I possibly gain from lying about a glitch and if I wasn’t 100% sure about something I would ask a question not complain.
Decent
by 🐰💕🐻💕 on 2021/02/03 14:48
FOE is a great builder style game. It has enough group activities and events to keep you interested for years. There are only two problems with the game that prevent it from being a 5 star app. 1st is the 24hr world timer on your daily resource collection. The timer makes you wait 24hrs from the time you collect to respawn those resources. For example if you are playing on your phone and want to collect your daily resources during your lunch break but someone tries to chat you up for 5 minutes you have then lost those 5 minutes because you must wait at least 24hrs to collect again. And well if this happens again and again you can see how eventually you will lose entire days worth of resource collection. Other games I have played used 20 or 23hr world timers to give players more freedom but as FOE is roughly 4yrs old at the time of writing this they clearly intend to stick with this format. 2nd as you can trade resources across the “Ages” it means you can obtain the best buildings (great buildings) at any point in the game provided you are able to farm enough expansion tiles to place them. This leaves players little incentive to move up to next age. Indeed it actually makes many features of the game harder. Which is really a shame because the art and the work in general that they put into these ages is kinda amazing.
In-Game Expansion Costs Real Money
by jayg44706 on 2019/07/25 10:01
I like games that allow me to construct kingdoms and civilizations, so I thought this game would be fun. It started out pretty fun, and my empire advanced in technology relatively quickly. However, you get to a point relatively soon (the Bronze Age, I believe) where the only way to expand buildable space is to purchase diamonds (with real money) which you then use buy land to expand on. There are very limited expansions you can use the in-game currency to purchase, even though building in-game currency happens quickly. And victory and research progress provides very little land expansion. Which brings me to a second issue that ties into the land expansion problem. In order to progress through time, you have to conduct research. This involves a combination of spending points that automatically accrue, production, and in-game coin. One concept to developing new research requires a number of different productions (e.g. dye and masonry). The problem is you don’t have enough land to construct these buildings to produce the goods you need to advance the research. And you also need available population, which can only be expanded by building more residences on land that you don’t have. See where I’m going with this? The game is ok at best, unless you have real money you want to sink into it. As a passive Smartphone gamer, it is very rare that I spend any real money on a game. And when I do it is only $0.99. I plan to delete the game.
Not very fun to play
by Beherenow77 on 2020/05/25 12:13
I keep looking for a good city building game, something fun like The Simpsons: Tapped Out and I was hoping this was it. But it’s not. My main issues are that when you are just starting the game people who have been playing for years and are way ahead of you are still allowed to attack you and plunder your city. This should only be available for people at the same level as you otherwise there is nothing you can do about it. Your army is never going to beat theirs. You also get so little in terms of land that you have to keep deleting buildings so you can build something else when you need certain goods. And the goods buildings produce so little in such a long time that you spend days and days trying to get enough to do anything. I get that this is a long play game but it’s too long for me. Just not enough to do to keep me interested. Update in response to developer: 1. Plundering would be fine if in the game it tells you about it, however, you only find out once someone does it and then you have to google what happened. 2. Even after googling Neighborhoods it is still unclear what these are, how to determine which one you are in or what the purpose is. 3. The game also doesn’t teach you about city defense, had to google that too. Too much stuff you have to google which is what makes it not fun. I never have to google how to do anything in Tapped Out, a far superior game. If you’re looking for a true city building game this is not it.
Huge Disappointment/Poorly Designed
by Jaymaxm on 2019/10/23 18:13
If you believe in playing a game that is fun, fair and enjoyable, skip this game! I started playing this game 18 months ago, only to discover some major design flaws. This game requires you to obtain blueprints towards gaining a Great Building, which provides you with different benefits. You are required to obtain 9 blueprints to build a Great Building. Often, you will get to a point where you are down to 8 of those blueprints and then start gaining multiples of the same one, where at that point you can choose to trade those multiples towards a “random chance” to obtain the one you are missing...Only problem is, the “random blueprint selector” feature rarely gives you the actual blueprint you need to finish the set of 9 required. So you end up spending days, weeks, even months of effort in saving up Forge Points to put down towards more blueprints, only to be held back over and over again by the “random blueprint trade” selection process! This “random” process really really takes a huge effort to get by, and just really makes it frustrating to say the least. Eventually you realize it’s no longer any fun to play a game that relies upon a “random selection” process. Progress is obstructed over and over...then the fun is gone...all that’s left is frustration because it inevitably just begins to feel like an entirely futile process altogether....is that really fun? Make a better choice, I wished now I had! What a waste of time!!!!
Great new updates!
by Thewurdninja on 2018/03/08 00:46
I love what they have done with the recent update. The z’s for buildings not in the process of production are now stationary making them much easier to see. I am a huge fan of the daily quests. Side quests and event quests have been greatly improved, causing me to play more frequently. Overall, I love this game. I have been playing for a few years now and have seen some ups and downs. I am looking forward to the new ages to come. The only thing I would like to see improved is will you PLEASE fix the fact that the app now asks me to sign in through Facebook every single time, even if I was just using it. It redirects me through the Facebook app and I have to click continue, okay, I accept, go, blah blah blah every time just to get to my city. It’s kind of annoying and makes it hard for me to quickly pick up productions or something while I’m not really actively playing at the moment. I find myself checking in less and less because of this added time for log in. Otherwise, great app. I would recommend it, just don’t ever click the log in through Facebook button or you are doomed to navigate through the outside app every time you log in.
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!
Don’t Play This Game
by madsgrace on 2019/02/24 16:45
Just don’t bother getting into it. I don’t want to stop playing because I enjoy getting through all the Ages and I’ve gotten really far....... but it’s an endless frustration. It’s so pay-to-win it’s painful. I can’t afford diamonds, so if they’re needed, I wait until I win them. The community does not respect this play style at all. I was kicked out of a guild (that claimed to be “just for fun, no requirements”) because I didn’t finish more than one level of GE every week. If you invest time and forge points into a Great Building, people sitting on thousands of FPs will swoop in and steal the top spots after you’ve chipped away at it for weeks. While these are player related problems, the bottom line is - other players who spend real world cash WILL take issue with or advantage of players who don’t. I’m far in the game and have a lot of expendable resources, but it’s not possible to advance in the community without diamonds. I’ll continue to play just because I like seeing the Ages progress over time. This is just the nature of the game, so this isn’t really me saying “change the game,” but don’t get into this game (if you want to advance in the rankings) unless you’re willing to drop some serious real world cash. Otherwise, you won’t compete with the many players who do, and it just isn’t a fun experience. So save yourself the trouble and find a different game to play.
Was Fun At First
by Faelandaea on 2019/12/24 01:54
Unfortunately, this game is designed to force you to spend real money to succeed. Mind you, on almost every game I play that has a store, I drop money because I love supporting the devs. But to me there is a difference between choosing to support at my own pace and being halted in all progress unless I pay to continue. In this case, I am at a complete standstill unless I drop cash to buy supplies. I have to weave cloth to proceed with research to get a better army. But ... catch 22 ... I need a better army to defend my cloth. It takes 2 days to make the cloth I need and before that 2 days is up that is the one resource that keeps getting plundered. This is because others can tell where your research tree is at and what you are working on and successfully block you from proceeding by pillaging your most needed resource. So, even after dropping a couple of hundred bucks into this game, I am calling it quits because even that amount of cash wasn’t enough to let me slide in and just enjoy building a city. Kind of hard to defend your resources when you need those resources to create what you need to defend them. The research tree is designed for only veteran players to make sure newer players never make it past the early Middle Ages. Back to Elvenar for me, I suppose.
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.

Well, it was a good game. I played up until the colonial age and i built the SoZ (people who play the game will know what I’m talking about) but i had just built that i also had the CdM, LoA, ToB, and the colosseum but right after i built the SoZ i got off the game and I tried to get on it a few hours later and the game refused to log me in. Like it just wouldn’t let me. I tried restarting the internet to see if that was the problem, nope, found out it needed an update. So I updated it like usual thinking that was the problem but it still wouldn’t work. So I tried changing the country i was in to see if that did anything, it made me login with my apple id but then none of the worlds i had (i had 2) showed up. And it’s a real bummer because i was doing really good also, getting 30 FPs every day, was in a really great guild and i had a group chat with all the friends i have on there and it was really helpful because everyone helped one another it seemed like people had everything you needed to make a GB. But the game crashed or something, I probably will play it again but not for a real long time. Edit: like a day after i made this review the game fixed its self soo yeah good game 👌
Disappointed
by Diane Villela on 2018/12/09 16:02
This seemed like a cool game going threw the different ages I reached the Iron Age and realized creators are way too money hungry everything at some point costs diamonds I needed land to place things it costs 200 diamonds each for the first two which I felt was a little too much but I gave it the benefit of he doubt! I have to admit I spend money on this game but it didn’t last long at all. When I reached Iron Age I got two more slots available using diamonds and only one as free. I thought okay the first two were 200 diamonds each I’ll just purchase 400 diamonds and I’ll get these two nope I was wrong they charged 400 diamonds for one expansion. I’m going back to my other games because I wasted money time and patients on this game and I truely regret it. I have spent money in a games but if the Iron Age is 400 diamonds for one slot next Age is 800 diamonds and so on and so forth. You can’t really get a head without spending real money. I down right hate creators that purposely abuse their creation that could be cool but isn’t because they prefer making money but exploiting people just so people get a head in a game! I feel for it once but not anymore. If I could give 0 stars I would! I’m a person who doesn’t mind a few dollars here or there but I refuse to waste anymore time money or patients on creators and game who take advantage of people to this extreme.
Unfair PVP
by Mac222nite on 2020/02/09 04:11
I did a review in game but just in case it doesn’t show up, avoid this game unless you like being ripped off. Player vs Player has ruined the game. Every time you get ahead a little another player takes your goods. If you have a lot of money you can BUY your way through the game or if you’re a thief you can take what you want. In my mind, the developers and thieves should be arrested in the real world. I spent REAL MONEY to get these goods and to progress in the game and they were taken from me by someone with a city and army so big that only a few players could defend themselves against. Before anyone thinks I’m a whiner, don’t worry I left and deleted my cities. Update: I deleted the city that was being attacked daily and I’m trying one more time. I like this game but this is FOE’s last chance with me. If it doesn’t get better I will leave for good. I don’t mind attacks if they are FAIR!! Higher level players should only be allowed to attack other players at the same level. Otherwise it’s robbery. INNO you said you hoped I would come back. Ok..here I am. We shall see if you truly want a fair game or not. Make PVP fair or you will lose more players than just me. Read your reviews. I’m not the only one who feels this way and I’m NOT going to BUY my way to the top.
Fun for hardcore strategy players
by free2play_player on 2020/11/25 01:45
I played this game twice once a few years ago and the other I started 6 months ago. I have to say the modern incarnation of the game is amazing and the older version bot ad much. The problem with game is that it is meant for higher leveled and more hardcore strategy game players. This means that most players that find the game bad is because it is to complicated. This is not to say that not investing every time and moment means it is not fun but looking for helpful guilds will allow you to learn all the game mechanics and advice. When I started playing the game I hopped around different guilds and until I found an active one that was not only helpful but required little to nothing to be part of. To this day I’m still in this guild and even though I’m in the top percentile of my server I still find the game not that taxing in time requirements. In fact I find myself playing the game to much which I have to say if played enough the game becomes very addictive. Overall this game is fair, rewards you, and I have yet to spend a SINGLE dollar playing it.
The update is suppressing the game
by Its good 24227 on 2021/02/07 13:58
I used to have forge of empires awhile ago, and it really was fun back then due to pvp including everyone. Nowadays you have to research for a whole week just to unlock that feature. Why is pvp important? It’s helpful In getting resources faster and to expand the map giving you more stuff to do to expand your empire. Since I’m still in the Iron Age starting over again, I cannot attack players since most of them have not unlocked pvp yet. It is frustrating because upon visiting their city, I saw clear signs that the player opened the game and then left permanently. Attacking lower levels is unfair to active players, but most of them aren’t ever going to be active anyways. It is robbing the challenge and activity of the players that are actually playing and active. This decision is not only a huge mistake, but it also makes new players wanting to leave immediately due to being able not to do anything. I know you updated the game to make sure more people are satisfied of staying in the game, but you are actually doing the exact opposite. Unless this is fixed soon, a lot of new players will quit altogether, including me.
Forge of Empires
by janete24 on 2018/02/21 18:07
Game is boring. It’s basically a point/click/waiting game. And you do a lot of waiting to the point where you ask yourself “Am I even playing a game?” There’s no daily freebie for logging in to play. Scenery, landscapes, color in the game are dull. They do have what they call “incidents”, which are but randomly throughout the game, but you have to look everywhere, and look hard because they blend in too much with the rest of the scenery. What gets me most is you can’t expand your territory, and when you can’t expand you can’t put up buildings, and when you can’t put up buildings you can’t build, almost like you’re stuck in a corner. Then there are the challenges. You can’t fulfill them because you don’t have the buildings to build, and the reason you don’t have the buildings to build is because you don’t have the ability to expand your territory. These challenges should only be at the level you’re at, or with the resources you currently have to fulfill them. So again you’re in a corner and you can’t do anything. And the production buildings. Come on! I can only make one product at a time and it takes way too long. If the programmers are reading this “How do you earn diamonds and medals to expand your territory?”
Good but the wait though makes the game boring
by mr.l 64000 on 2019/07/17 05:51
Well it’s what you expect from a free app game. The game is just a point and wait game seriously it takes so long just to build a house even in the Bronze Age. Don’t get me started on the happiness gimmick I mean you already waste enough money and supplies on houses, supply buildings, and good buildings and how about just waste it on culture buildings and decorations. I mean I get but like I said before you already waste your money on houses and supply buildings. What I hate the most is forge points I mean why is the maximum limit 10 I mean I looked in different ages and it takes hundreds of forge points. Yeah you can buy them but whenever you buy a forge point but it gets more expensive when you buy them. Why does it take an hour just to one, there just should have been no forge points. In conclusion Forge of Empires is a good game but there cultural buildings should have been to increase supply buildings more and it should have applied to good buildings too.
Frustrating more than fun
by venuscrash24 on 2018/10/08 11:11
I really thought this would be a fun game. At first it is, but quickly turns to frustration. You never have enough room for things you need, and buildings don’t turn to better arrange. Their excuse for that is that it makes it more of a puzzle and that they would have to do too much work to make them turn. Everything starts to take so much to upgrade that you get stuck waiting for resources way too early on, and people do not offer fair trades at all. I finally drew the line at a requirement of many diamonds (200 I think), which you would have to buy, to do the next building upgrade. Some things that would make it better are actually upgrading buildings instead of selling and rebuilding every time, and an adjustment of how much is needed versus how much is offered in the game. This isn’t a game you can continuously play, you have to put it down-seems counter intuitive to me if you are trying to make a hit game... Also, last note, the fighting is fun but it take 2 hours to ‘recruit’ new fighters, and can only do one at a time for each type, so takes a day to build enough troops! One fight a day is no fun! I hope they put more work in and recalibrate, the idea is fun, just too frustrating.
What’s this “fight tactical battles” picture? & antiques dealer repeating junk?
by DySync on 2019/10/19 13:21
Am I missing this part of the game that on my city there could be a battle on the edges as though I’m defending my city? I have seen many other games doing this to a huge degree but does that make it even slightly reasonable or okay? Well I guess we all have to decide the line of being and speaking lies. Lol One more thing: Why so much repetition in the antiques dealer? There are thousands of possible items end yet never an event upgrade for any main event buildings. But there is a menagerie of the day... it’s a good place to showcase the awesome stuff that can be gained in game play- create want in newer players and greed in Kings of Empires. Or repeat the same stuff we are currently selling and bore the lot. For an app I play then any other ever I would put 5 stars for holding my attention and making a game enjoyable. Not to mention beautiful. There are times the great ideas that created UI and UX are an amazing spectacle and when that’s the case(like FOE) please stick the top with simple decisions. Basically keep your finger prints off my faberge eggs! Happy forging!
I don’t know about this game...
by unknown.................!! on 2019/04/16 18:22
I’m not trying to judge I just started playing this game but I think it’s expensive and it’s kind of boring to me and what can you even do you might say yea it’s just a noob but seriously after the tutorial what can you do produce stuff and that’s it I was lost but I have been reading the other reviews and haven’t even Contributed ever but I believe in the reviews and it says you need fixed the game and then we can everything expensive because it is why would you need an expansion for 200 diamonds also I don’t like how I need to Tutorial. They waste your diamonds for you I think you should have a choice because if you’re going to make everything so expensive with diamonds why should you spend 100 for ya And as this and as he said diamonds are very important so you just want people to pay for more some some people don’t want to waste money on a game so I think you should waste the money for them not money not even many diamonds but the damage in the game I like money but as I was saying I don’t know about the game because well it’s expensive it’s kind of boring and what can you do just Produce things I don’t mean maybe you should give it more than just one little tweak
Just another “free” game
by Blackhawk1019 on 2018/08/30 06:18
Like all the other 1 star reviews I have encountered all the same problems with this game. It does start off really good, but as you progress the game get almost impossible to do anything because you are moved to new neighborhoods with players at levels much higher the yours. If you don’t spend money to buy diamonds your progression will be unbearably long. I get attacked over 6 times a day by players at higher levels and they steal you production items. I asked the developer about how I keep getting attacked by higher level players and got a generic response of how I should collect my items right when they are done with production. Somehow player know to attack within 5 minutes of production being completed. Fair warning that this game is far from free even though the developer says it is possible with out spending money. Getting attacked constantly is frustrating enough to make you want to purchase the upgrade. Note to developer no need to write a response because I know how to contact you and your answer is already noted above. I know I can purchase city shields to stop the attacks. Now let’s see what kind of generic response the developer can come up with as to how they can solve all the above problems.
Broken endgame
by houseofpwncakes on 2019/05/02 13:53
Promising game with great music, graphics, and design. Frequent events with fun rewards that are manageable if you're a free-to-play player. The devs have clearly worked very hard on their product. Unfortunately, once you reach the contemporary era the game is completely unplayable for free players. PvP is forced on and there's no shield for getting raided; I have screenshots of 10 raids in a single day on my base (and each raid allows a player to loot your production buildings, preventing you from looting them yourself). Pay players will frequently attack you with armies that are 200% boosted by premium bases, using one troop 3-4 ages ahead of yours and 7 rogues (poorly balanced unit that automatically copies another unit in your army when it's attacked). Basically, there's no defense for free players against getting raided back to back with armies that are ages ahead of theirs and three times as boosted until all of their buildings are unusable. This happened basically every day for a month or two until I had to stop playing. Looking forward to a potential fix in the future because the game was otherwise designed with a lot of love.
Free to download, not free to play
by Mr. Coral on 2019/05/16 06:22
I have played this game a month or so and I always wait a bit to write a review. I was forced to write this review because this game ai has decided I needed to write something great about this game or give feedback. So to be transparent, this is what I submitted in my ticket to support.// This game is not free to play, maybe free to download but definitely not free to play. This game has many trips and falls all designed to get you to purchase diamonds in order to advance (let’s be realistic, its pay to play). This is not a strategy game, this is a build game of which I now feel hostage to do bi-daily maintenance on in order to not be plundered by much bigger opponents. Also, I cannot even do or complete daily events without being forced to use diamonds. I also cannot battle without using diamonds to replenish troops loses, unless I prefer to wait a tremendous amount of time to so-called play for free. I honestly believe this game is boring! I have played many mobile games through the years and this is the worst game I have played. I don’t see mayself playing this game much longer. Also, do I really need to have 10 plus accounts just to play 1 solid account and be able to advance in this game? I don’t think I do.
Frustrating on mobile
by Bhjsbbah on 2017/10/24 16:15
I like games of patience. This one is promising but when I started, my story quests were hindered by an internal error and by the time support fixed it, I was way ahead of the story quests and would have to do them after I already did them, which wastes time and resources. My name and profile seems to be that of an old man. I asked them to change it because I couldn't (it's the first quest) due to the internal error. It wasn't fixed. **update** I'm not stuck on the first quest. I'm stuck on the other quests because by the time the first quest was fixed, I was way ahead and have to basically redo everything I've already done. Like... Build 3 Stilt Houses. Why would I build 3 stilt houses when my population lives in tile roof houses and chalets? I lack the space and my population can't go down as they are all being used for production. Waste of time and resources. Makes it frustrating. I am, however, stuck in progressing in research because of a bug. I've researched and unlocked militia, but the game is saying I need to research it to progress. It also didn't give me the soldier barracks that came with completing the block. That's a serious bug or glitch. I did contact support. We'll see if they are any help.
HORRIBLE SUPPORT
by grideraaron on 2018/02/27 15:41
The game is a ton of fun while you can play it. I got banned because they claimed my kids were feeding me and avoiding the rest of the game. I have 5 kids who can verify different; we made in game trades for goods, blueprints, and forge points that were fair and according to the rules. They donated about 5k forge points and i gave them about 1k forge points back along with over 10k goods for a bunch of different ages. The rules are not based on actual facts, but rather the opinion of any given moderator at any given time. This is unfortunate, but ohh well. I would have given 1 star because of support, but the game is really fun. Update: well as expected there was no change even after they wasted my time. They should have just dropped it with my post. My kids wanted to keep playing but they wont unban them as they stated they are “only in iron age and it wont take them long to get back.” 3 of them had arcs and a few terrace farms. I don’t think the support people know how to play their own game. It took my kids 3-6months to get all the bps and it took me another month to donate fps to get the goods for them. The support is laughable at best. Lowering my stars to 1 for the way they treated my kids and will have my 2 older leave a review.
Worth the effort and it takes some effort
by Orofinogal on 2019/06/12 15:03
This game seems rather boring at first and is often hard to understand what is expected. Some information is available on the forums but to a newbie that can all be Greek! Once available find a good supportive guild! That is the most important thing. They should help you with your forge points, great buildings and answer questions. There is much more to this game than meets the eye so be patient! I also enjoy being able to have 2 or later 3 worlds and towns. Also visit other players towns often and see what they are doing. This will give you insight and you can ask your guild members questions about what you see. Great game but I will say that in order to progress you will need to purchase diamonds occasionally. I figure it is pretty cheap entertainment. Use the diamonds for play and don’t spend them unless you really consider the importance of your purchase. Then they are a good investment. Have fun!
Better reconstruction mechanics required
by T-Man135 on 2020/02/29 10:59
Adore the game I probably log on about 4 times a day, loving the saint patties days event, it’s really helping me move up quickly in the game!! wich I love I’ve had the game for like 4 days and I’m already on the Iron Age! not certain if that’s fast or not. I just thought it would’ve taken longer but I’m pleased to say it didn’t. but to the point of the review, I gave the game 3 stars in hopes it would catch an eye of a developer. Obviously, the way your empire is arranged is very important to the game I learned that day one. But to move buildings around to try to change your empire for the better it takes a significant amount of space, a feature to where you can move all your buildings into your inventory and start from scratch on your empire would really help the player move buildings to where I want them to be an overall redesign his or her empire for the better! And I’m my own opinion make the game 5 stars worth of fun! If this gets a response from a developer not only will it prove that y’all listen to players but I will change my rating :)
Fun to play
by Davidk8203 on 2019/06/30 04:56
I have played for months now. I have a sweet city and pvp all the time. I haven't spent a dime on the game and I have over 4k diamonds to spend if needed. People are whiners. This game is a lot of fun whether you want to build your city, fight others or chat. They have regular special events to get special buildings for questing. I only installed it to get a freebie on another game. That game was deleted months ago and I still play this. Joining a guild is easy and super beneficial. Try it. You will get hooked. P.S. People who think you must buy diamonds to play are not giving the game a chance and should probably find a different game. Maybe one with no challenge or strategy. People who spend diamonds will still get beat up by higher players because they are newbs. Slow down and develop your city and you won’t get attacked successfully as often. Ignore the trolls saying you have to pay to play. Try it for a week and find out for yourself.
Amazing game!!
by Güblermeister on 2017/09/26 12:59
All of these people on here complaining about it being slow or too hard. Why don't you go find a game you can fly through and stop trying to get them to ruin a great game. I've been playing it for months. It's challenging, has a lot of things to spend your time on, not to mention it's a blast to strategize what to do and what not to do with your city or what to spend your forge points on. I personally love that there are things like the great buildings that are next to impossible to get. It makes it hard and I like it that way. Oh and about it being expensive or having to spend diamonds. I call BS I haven't spent diamonds since the ones you get at the beginning of the game and I am all the way to the colonial age and working towards my 3rd great building. Please don't listen to the idiots that want the game nerfed. It's the reason amazing games like WOW have been ruined.
7 Year Veteran - originally a 5 and now a 2
by 7 Year Player on 2019/02/25 09:42
I have been playing for 7 years and considering discontinuing due to the increasing expense needed to play the game. The #1 trick they use to consume yourDiamonds is the cost to auto click and eliminate 100 plus moves. No big deal to not spend 5 diamonds sale on and click your self but by the time your in the Arctic phase you have to click 100s of time. even if you do pay it still makes you click 100 times because the auto clicks is too simple and does ask a few basic questions that would allow them to do more of the work for you. There seems to be also fewer player than in the past so there is less available trades. Another reason to finally call It a day. I think they have gotten 100s of dollars over 7 years most in the past year. I don’t mind spending some money but I would have expected logical improvements to like I described above in return for my funds. As one of your most loyal clients I am guessing I will not get a response or taken seriously but I am likely a conduit for many other original players who are thinking of bailing.
Ok game until
by Rich121070 on 2018/11/17 11:51
The game is somewhat fun until you get to a certain age and are attacked and looted incessantly by man children who won’t level because they’re so large they can attacked anyone and plunder them without fear of retailing. The game caters to this. There is no requirement to level up so these people sit there and make themselves rich and you miserable on a daily basis and the developers love this. It’s like you high school football team having to play multiple NFL teams everyday. And their wonderful response to this will be “you can get a shield” which means you have to spend over a week collecting “visits” to your tavern from 80 or more friends on a daily basis for the pleasure of being left alone for a few days. Or pick up your loot on time which turns you into an anxiety ridden mess setting alarms and stopping whatever the thing you’re doing in real life because they allow some over grown a holes with no lives of their own to constantly feed off you instead of enforcing them to level and take on people at their own level. This is a constant theme of all their games and I’m extremely tired of them.
Don’t waste your time
by Lou Pru on 2019/12/19 12:44
I’ve played this game for a number of years. When I first started 6 years ago, the developers were very generous in giving rewards. For example when you motivated or polished another player using an example of 50 friends, you would acquire a BP (blue print) for a GB (Great Building) approximately 10 +- a day. Now with 80 friends I’m lucky if I acquire 1-2 a day. Other rewards too numerous to list here, have become have been reduced to segments. For example, a wishing well which can randomly produce free diamonds, goods, coins and supplies use to be rewarded as a complete building. Now you are offered a segment of a wishing well meaning you must acquire 15 fragments of a wishing well to build one complete wishing well. One must realize that the game is FREE but if you wish to advance through the different eras and be competitive you will purchase diamonds. One needs to pay the salaries of the developers and companies don’t start a business to loose money in the long run. The game is significantly unbalanced to players in the the low eras: Bronze Age, Iron Age, Middle Ages etc it’s a very slow advancing game in real time. My suggestion is to look elsewhere.
Free to play?
by Brian281993 on 2019/08/31 16:23
While sure the game is technically free to play it’s almost very very slow if you play that way to the point were it’s not even fun. I get the game is a marathon but I also understand what the developers are trying to do what is make the game so slow and boring so that users use real cash to make the game fun. Sadly all mobile games and even more and more console and pc games are going this is way what is sad. Personally I don’t mind paying money to play a game considering all my games on my pc cost money and I even refer the old ways instead of this “freemium model” of continuous payments that get you barely anywhere but the fact that micro transactions in this game don’t get you much is ridiculous. I’ve seen buildings in the game cost as much as $40 when you convert everything especially with the new bidding system. You could easy send $200 on the game and it would barely get you anywhere. The amount of greed is too greet. If you can justify why a pixelated building is worth $40 when I can purchase an entire computer game on steam and be done and just play the game without micro transactions to make it remotely fun then I’m heading back to pc.
Good idea! And immersive world. But too much fishing and too many bugs
by Ditte81iowa on 2019/12/20 20:48
The idea of this game is fun, and I’ll likely keep playing it. I would not recommend it, though. It has bugs, and a lot of them. First: it says you will get diamonds, if you invite friends. This isn’t True! We’ve tried it twice now, and all you get is a long nose, and you don’t even get to be in the same world (even if you follow message link). There are other kinks. Like: now I’m stuck on a winter event star quest, that isn’t acknowledging infiltrating provinces, and the so called negotiations are just an attempt to get the players to spend diamonds (which cost money). Loads of elements to the game like that. Get you stuck. Won’t let you get unstuck without diamonds, and loads of them. I get they made the game to make money, but it is a shame. Maybe it’ll be a better game with bug fixing? I like that new layers keep being added as you progress. However, the element of aggression I could have done without (player vs player, where random people can attack your city).
What is going on with the game?
by Ms. I Love to Read on 2019/03/20 18:29
It seems like ever since there was an update this last time, the game doesn’t want to load, and there is nothing wrong with my internet connection since I can play my other games with NO issues, only this one is giving me trouble now. I have shops trying to produce but I can get to hem before I’m raided and lose what I’m trying to produce...for over an hour I’ve been waiting for the game to load...all I see are animated leaves falling on the screen, but NO game, so I finally had to give up...is someone going to fix this and how can I get my goods back?! It’s been a couple of days now since I first wrote this post, and I’m back because I’m still having issues...I’m trying to do one of them challenges to earn military people from my current timeframe...snipers, etc., but I can’t even get back into my game. I can access my other games, it not this one, and I’ve rebooted twice and still nothing....is someone working on this issue??
Thoughts
by By Miguel7656! on 2018/12/02 05:00
I have been pondering thoughts that may improve the game. I hope you it may help. I was thinking on how to improve the GE quality. I've been reading and the forum says our goal for Expeditions is to protect our territory in our land and expand our territory. Well why don't you guys do that. Every time a guild gets 1st place you should award them with land but they can only get 1st like 15 times (Don't want to make it to easy to get land), 2nd place winners gets goods from other guilds who lost below 5th place, 3rd place winners will receive an army legionnaire from their period, 4th place winners get supplies and 5th place winners get a nice pat on the back by getting gold. I know the places are only up to three but I think there should really be five. There are other ideas but I think this is a major one to discuss and if u can, may u make it so players maay have a 90 degree turning ratio for their buildings. Thanx 😋
PAYWALL ALERT
by TopKupo on 2018/05/26 20:08
I finally decided to be patient with this game seeing as how it actually takes time and lots of patience to build your own little empire. Don’t get me wrong, it’s really fun and surprisingly social. Other players are helpful and there are some okay benefits from helping others; the biggest being willful reciprocation from other players. However, after almost two months, I have advanced my empire to the Early Middle Ages where I have noticed a huge paywall at the BEGINNING of the research tree. I have never seen such a blatant paywall after spending so much time on a mobile game where most of my playtime was fair and free. I don’t plan on buying diamonds (premium currency), so I’d either have to farm them through expeditions or occurrences, which barely give you more than 10 diamonds each and rarely drop them, or quit playing to avoid wasting more time on a paywall that’s gonna hold me back from advancing a substantial part of the game. If you were gonna hit players with a paywall, do it sooner. This review was supposed to be four stars, but that paywall frustrated me entirely.
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!
Good but constantly lags
by Mlew85 on 2020/04/05 13:22
I’ve been playing this game for a couple of years and am in the artic future. I could have got here faster if I paid but to date, I haven’t spent a dime. I would leave it 5 stars but over the past several months, the game has been lagging. It’s not my connection as all my other apps are fine. Examples of lagging: you attack the opponent in battle and wait between 30-60 seconds for the game to register. Another example: when collecting coins and supplies, I can collect everything from my buildings and then wait for another 15-20 seconds before it catches up. I keep getting the spinning wheel as everything catches up and it really slows gameplay and destroys the user experience. It would be 5 stars otherwise. Update Apr 5, 2020: game is still slow and it feels slower than it was. Now it’s crashing at least one a day. I’m the Egypt world, I battle and then it crashes. In my city, it still takes almost a minute to catch up from collecting supplies and coins. It’s super frustrating. This happens regardless of being on WiFi or cell data. My other games/apps are fine, it’s just Forge of Empires.
Fun to a certain Point.....then walk away
by Ranger lover! on 2020/03/10 01:39
Love the concept building the cities throughout various ages. Made it to the modern ages. I agree with others that there is a certain point where you must purchase diamonds in order to sufficiently advance. For the developer who stated they made it through the entire game without purchasing diamonds, i imagine it’s because you know the rules. I understand thats where the app makes money. Two items that seem to be irritating and have now caused me to NEVER buy any more diamonds 1) plundered by user which mysteriously happens after diamond purchases 2) poorly documented instructions with regards to rules, advancing to levels, defeating armies, etc. that is only available through Wiki. Come on guys! Move instructions within the app. Flesh them out to where they’re actually valuable rather than a sentence or two as is the case with the majority of them. It’s like a 7th grader documented it for extra credit. Take pride in the game. It’s fun but needs to be fine tuned
Needs more diversity
by Jayline87 on 2018/02/16 13:23
I just went to change my profile pic in the game and noticed that out of 170 characters there are only 9 black ones- 3 male, 6 female. You need to add more options for players with black skin other than black knight, black man with a turban and football player. I can imagine how black people feel when they go to pick a profile pic and its just an endless sea of white characters. Aside from that I love playing this game. Unlike other games of its kind, there’s so much to do that you never really get to a point where you’re done growing and it becomes repetitive. I also really love the social aspect of it to. You can have your own city, but you can help out others and others can help you so that you benefit and joining a group or guild is great because you’re helping each other out further and working as a team while you build your own city. There are always quests and challenges so you’re never going to get bored.
Time = $

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!
Pretty neat game.

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