I just ragequit this game.. I played for over a year and managed to level up an “okay” team of 4* heroes. After a year, I finally got a 5*, but her development stalled out at “level 70” for lack of the proper ascension material. This number is meaningless, though, because to get to “level 70” I actually had to ascend at 40, start back at 1, ascend to 50, start back at 1, ascend at 60, start back at 1, and then make it to the level 70 threshold FOR A GRAND TOTAL OF 220 LEVELS, and there are another 80 levels after that! But what really made me quit was the wholly improbable lack of matches during battles. The enemy can clobber you and gain mana every turn, yet your mana only grows when you make a match. The enemy can target your most important heroes first (looking at you, healers), but you can only play whatever will match, even if it means triggering an enemy special that will kill you. The game breaks its own rules in an effort to make you pay for gems that let you “continue the fight!” And during wars, the enemy gets even more buffs. My entire five-hero team was taken out by a single healer who literally couldn’t die because it received extra heals on top of its own. This game sucked me in for way too long, and in the end it gave me nothing but aggravation. I wanted to like it, but I just don’t need it in my life.

This game is straight pay-to-win. P&E is fun & addictive, but is ABSOLUTELY pay-to-win. You can’t be a good team w/o having 5-star heroes on your roster, & it’s virtually impossible to get a single 5-star w/o paying. Anyone who has more than 1 or 2 5-star heroes in their deck has spent hundreds of dollars on this game. The top teams who have their entire deck stacked w/ 5-star heroes have undoubtedly spent over a thousand dollars. People may go into the game thinking they can just grind & get 5-star heroes slowly & patiently. It doesn’t happen. Earning gems w/o buying packs are too slow; you will legitimately spend a month to earn enough gem to summon 1 hero, & get a 3-star. You have save & grind for several months to earn enough gems to draw 10 at a time, & you will only gets 3 or 4 star heroes. Realistically, the only way to get a 5-star is to do a 3 or 4 10-draws in a row, & earning enough gems to do that many 10-draws will take months, if not a year of grinding. The other way to get a 5-star hero thru a level 20 Training Center. Well, it takes months to build a level 20 TC, & once you have it, it takes a lot of resources & 2 full days to try to train a 5-star, but even then the drop rates for 5-stars from a TC is basically non-existent. A guy on my team in this game was keeping a tally of how many heroes he was getting from his TCs, & he had done over 70 by last count & gotten only 3 & 4-stars. That’s literally months of effort for squat.

Fun And Expansive Match 3 (with some issues). I’ve played this game for over 3 years, during which time I’ve invested a modest amount of money and a significant amount of time in my little digital kingdom and beloved heroes. This review is from a place of significant experience and fondness, but also objective honesty. The world of mobile games is dominated by match 3 puzzles for a reason. They are quick and intuitive, they are shiny and addictive. This game is no different but incorporates an expansive campaign and hero mechanics system that puts it into the realm of some of the best mobile RPGs. The developers regularly feed the app new content, and the global player base is generally very healthy (my own alliance is made up of polite supportive strangers). These elements all make for a finely tuned game that is easy to pick up and stays fun and competitive at even the highest levels of play. As with any mobile game, there are issues in Empires: annoying pop up ads, mind-numbing resource farming, an abysmally slow building upgrade system, overtly sexist female characters/avatars, and the pay to win factor here is significant, but Empires can be fun as a 100% free game as well. I have friends with a few less heroes on their rosters, but healthier bank accounts. Overall the game is great, assuming your patience and resilience is as well.

Beware…. As many others before me have mentioned, this game is all about the money regardless of how it’s disguised. It will seem manageable to start off, but quickly becomes too difficult to progress unless you spend spend spend. The ironic part about it, is that spending guarantees you absolutely nothing! In fact, the more you spend, the more frustrated you will be that you did and got hardly anything, and nothing that you will feel is worth your money. The upper levels are even more difficult and the thing about this is you will need to upgrade your hero’s to even be competitive so you will feel the urge to keep trying for better hero’s but the odds are like .001 that you will receive one. Shameful money grab. You will read that you can play for free, but believe me, you can’t beat anyone or progress for free. This is ridiculous. Don’t fall for it...... I haven’t spent nearly as much as others and it’s apparent. My hero’s are stuck waiting endlessly to be upgraded, I don’t have a 5* hero and I get beat or loose all the time to those you do. This is no puzzle game either. The boards are controlled in some manner and you will lose in the end. Don’t take my word for it, read the reviews or better yet go to the actual community forum.

Great game. The reviews on here that state you have to “pay to win” and “never guaranteed you do win when you spend x amount” are Bogus claims. Playing this game is a marathon, not a dAsh to the finish. It’s team building; material farming adventure that takes months to get every character and item your so desperately wanting. The Months it takes to lever characters, upgrade buildings, play through the story and quests takes time and patience. You can spend money to get the things your so desperately wanting now with odd/chances against you OR you can just play the game and wait for the quest and tournaments to give you the items your wanting(takes time) What your goals in the gameplay can also differ. So any reviews telling you about bad character/teams or not getting them. Those people know they spend money with odd slim and change with every season. and spending money is no guarantee to any item due to the lottery/change type of buying. They tell you the % of chance to get certain items/ If your looking for a game you can dig into, put in the time needed to make it the team and build it have patience because they give you gem to spend, they give you many items to build you characters. Give this game the your time it deserves before giving it a review. **Happy Adventures Slawguhy

Leszek Moon. Great game!!! Huge minuses is getting ancession material it takes a lot of time to get it! And also feeding heroes takes so much food. Last level 5* hero takes 5000 health it’s around 35 heroses in one level. That’s two huge minus of this game the other way it’s fine. In my opinion ancession material should be available to buy anytime in game store. Game is very disappointing because difficulty of maxed out your heroes that’s make players very frustrated. That’s the reason why people leave this game. Generally game is very interesting but small gigant should fix this two things. Feeding one her to max 80 level is taking a month it’s crazy who have nerve for that. Before you start play think about it. Hope so company will fix that problem and for the future process to feeding heroes will be much faster. And also players who spend money on this game should be treated better getting better lot and rewards. And also pull should be better for people who did second pull. Each pull should be better not worst. Thanks and have fun playing game

Games are drugs. By now most people realize that video games are dopamine dealers. This game is no exception. Sure, many games like this one are free to play. The thing is, things like rewards trigger that dopamine response and make us feel good. Things like getting a bad board or getting beaten up by much stronger player (who probably paid a lot of money to power up) will make some players want to buy things in order to feel better again - by winning and getting more rewards. This game makes MILLIONS - look it up. It does it by being brilliant in its character designs that slightly resemble figures in pop culture and its system of rewards and punishment. The punishment by other players and by the board generators will make people want to buy power ups in order to feel better. I’ve played this game a couple of years and have spent some money on it, but I’m also aware of what’s going on. So you have to know yourself and understand that if you lack impulse control, you might be better off with a video game without in-app purchases.

I’m not a gambler. I would give this game a higher rating. There’s so many good things about the game play and different ways to play. I’ve played it everyday since November 2018. I’m embarrassed to say how much I have spent on gems, but I added it up $5,200. I went from rarely spending on a game to overspending small buys at a time. Most purchases were under $30. I don’t mind spending money to get what I need. But I don’t like to gamble. In other games you spend money on gems and buy the hammer you want. Here you buy gems with a 1-3% chance to get that hammer. In this case a particular hero. At the height of my spending I spent over $600 trying to get a particular hero and didn’t even get it. I’m so far invested in the game, it’s hard to walk away. If I had it to do over I would not download this game. My opinion further degraded over recent decisions the developers made. We don’t have any rights after spending money time and resources on our teams. They can just change the hero at will. There’s many simple things they could do to make the game less like gambling. If the priced a hero at $200 and you knew you could get it for the money or you could pull for it at the summon gate that would be great. If they stopped messing with heroes after they’re released. Again simple fix that costs them nothing. I’ve tried to stop spending, but it’s harder than going vegan. I have to stop playing. $5,200 worth small buys is out of control. Don’t start playing.

Fun game just a problem!. Ok.. so yeah I’m not really willing to spend my money on this game. I think the prices Are kind of high- but.. this is a really good game also it’s really fun! But I would also kind of like to just get a free daily reward.. Because I would have to pay for it every single day to get the offer for the Christmas daily offers.. I like that at least some of them are free. But not a lot are free.. I just don’t want to spend that much money on the game.. at Christmas time. Because your going to be using your money to buy presents and other things! So I am not really willing to spend my money💰 at this time. I would just enjoy if they would make the daily rewards all free!🙂 Otherwise I think this game is really fun I like playing all the levels and I like that you can get people by playing that level it really helps me get more characters when I play the levels. Because of the money I have to spend on this game to get the items that it offers me I rated it four stars. but I love this game so much! And I also recommend downloading it. Yeah so I just really think it is a awesome game for anyone to play!! Thanks for reading my review!!😊

BEWARE!!!. To new players who will end up being suckers and spending money on a off chance you might, just mighty be lucky enough to get what you so desperately need for you to win just a bit more..... DON’T!! DON’T FALL FOR THIER TRICKS!!! There’s is nothing I can not stand more than a app like this who tempts poor unsuspecting sheep into slaughter giving up their hard earned money or allowance money for no and I mean NO GAIN! When you see other players with all the “top stuff” it is usually the game developers, betas or a friend of the app makers or they are fools and spent hundreds or sadly thousands $$$ so they will have all the stuff you dream about, that YOU will never be able to have! You’ll spend a small amount an might get a lil better then you will say yes i might be lucky and spend more and then before you know it you’ll be so deep in a hole with absolutely NOTHING TO SHOW FOR IT! It’s so disgusting of these type of game developers! They are no different than a casino a scratch off addiction and the drug dealer down the block getting you hooked so you’ll spend more! I’ve worked with people like this that make apps like this and that’s the reason why I don’t anymore! There are better ways to make big bucks on this app but to take millions from poor unsuspecting sheep is gross! Please players spend your money elsewhere or save it or don’t listen to me but don’t say you were never warned!

SGG Should Take Notes. I have been playing empires and puzzles for three years. There are many positives about this game, hence my continued engagement. That said, there are many areas of improvement that the developer has continued to ignore despite many recommendations from players. I would encourage SGG to review Call of Antia. This game has a far superior summoning and tile RNG, better animation, more engaging music, and more accessible features for a free to play or pay to play player. SGG has continued to ignore the complaints about 5* summons, PvP and war mechanics, and the seemingly favoritism shown towards players who spend more. Empires and puzzles is not a balanced game, it is a cash whale. I find myself anticipating logging into Call of Antia far more than I do empires and puzzles. Empires and puzzles has become the lesser game. Buyer beware, this game is far more interested in your ability to spend than the time you spend playing. To point, I’m sure I will get a form letter or blanket response that is typical to this developer, but if you are a bored player (of which there are many) or even a new one, try the newer game with the better mechanics. SGG: take note of Call of Antia. You have become outclassed and made obsolete.

Don’t bother. This game was great when it came out. But they keep introducing newer more powerful characters which your best chance to get is based on $$$ spent to increases random chance. So the game is rapidly being ruled by op characters where the average player not spending piles of money gets screwed. They also play around with odds on the shields. If you have two of five of same color the odds of that color appearing go down! This has been proven by players tracking the screens over and over yet they deny it occurs even if such “bad luck” happens to encourage you to use items which again you can buy! They care only about the next dollar not game balance so save your money. Also note every critical review gets the same packaged its free to play we offer items for those wanting a faster pace message. IE .. pay to win. Since raids on others and war with others is part of the game those paying through the nose for a faster pace slaughter the non payers and you get far less rewards than they do. Its not equal chance when those spending piles of cash can dominate player interactions. And if you choose not to participate in that well you are penalized with even less rewards and even slower growth. So your choice is stand there and be beat by those spending money to get something or don’t soend and slough on slowly ohhhh so slowly to advance. Nice choice

There is no “endgame”. Well there is, but when you reach it you still have things you can do. If it gets boring it means your alliance isn’t a committed one (leave and find a new one!) and you haven’t figured out how to make weaker (epic) heroes work as well as the super strong (legendary) ones. Which is possible. Definitely a game for the long term. I downloaded just because an Interactive app looked cool and I’ve been playing for almost a year it seems! tip: the game & team building is far more fun if you DO NOT drop cash. Atleast early on! You’ll be missing out on the early-type of fun of the game if you care about climbing the ranks and storing rare items too quickly. Don’t get fustrated with losses, just have fun! Level up atleast 2 heroes of every color that are 3 star heroes before moving on to 4 star heroes. Repeat the process with 4 star heroes before moving on to ANY 5 star heroes. 5 star heroes are of little to no value for younglings because the amount of resources and items you need to invest in leveling them up exceeds their value. You could have 4, 3 star heroes or 2, 4 star heroes done before your at the 5 star hero’s last level! As you level up, resources come quicker.

Good game but…. I’ve played for several years and it’s okay, the numbers creep is rough, the difference between a season one and a season five hero fully leveled is vast. So expect that even if you a full team of season one legendary heroes you will lose to a team of newer heroes. It’s a business, they’re trying to make money, I get that. If you can get everything to be a top player without spending money there’d be no incentive to. That being said, you can spend hundreds and never pull a legendary and I don’t like that you can go through and get coins from an event where the only way to get them is to purchase it and you’ll still only pull season one rares, that’s bad business. For example if you get enough of the three kingdoms coins to do a ten summon then you pull four of the same season one rares(I’m looking at you Dawa) and you’ve spent thirty dollars for trash you’re going to feed to a character you already have. This wouldn’t be so bad if you were dealing with NFT but the characters aren’t tradeable. Their answer to this was the soul exchange where the “best” hero costs twenty legendary heroes for you all of the legendary heroes are the same value but theirs have levels, ten, fifteen and twenty. It’s a bit unreasonable and though I hesitate to say it because I hate the term, unfair. It doesn’t have to be fair though, we choose to play. Anyway, fun game but know you’re not “investing” in getting better, you’re buying and hoping to and hope isn’t a good strategy.

TL;DR: Get this game!. I love this game. Are there issues? Of course! But the game is engaging and overall fun to play. You can raid other players for trophies and resources (food and iron, the in-game currencies). You can join alliances and battle titans every day, and with a recent add-on you can now battle other alliances in epic PvP Alliance Wars. The biggest complaint I have seen is that the loot isn’t always great. No, it’s not. But if you got everything you needed to be able to ascend every single hero from titan loot, you would be bored with the game and complain that it’s too easy. The point of the game is to grow slowly at a marathon pace, not finish it in two months at a sprint. Sure, you can buy gems and get those epic heroes quickly, but you still have to play the game to get the materials needed to level those legendary heroes. There’s always going to be someone who has better heroes, stronger teams, and more hams than you. That just gives you something to strive for in the game. In all, it’s a great long-term game with a great community. If you want instant gratification in a game, play Mario Kart.

New games, new names, same problems. A needlessly elaborate schematic designed to confuse you into thinking you can play for free. Quickly gets too hard to do so. But more than the standard and expected money grab is the baffling added difficulty thrown at you to actually *play* the basic puzzle game. Upgrade a web of buildings in a long linear series to Recruit heroes to train heroes up levels to ascend heroes of five different types. With taking days to move each step. Why stop your gamers from playing? 1 star not for the money grab but the inane thoughts in the "boardroom" that this style of play is likeable by those that play puzzle matching games. Speaking of money grabs though. This developers here are masterclass. You can (and will) pay hundreds of dollars (I have spent close to 1000 on this game) buying *chances* to get what you need. And the chances are (not surprisingly) near zero. Exact chances? Guess. And you won’t have to guess who figured out that in their boardroom? You will be laughed at in that boardroom. Key items are kept from you from fully ascending you heroes though which can’t be bought. Ascending them *if* you get lucky and pay money is amazingly difficult at higher levels with months of grinding (during which time you will be spending more money). Honestly this game makes you wonder why anyone would deal illegal drugs. Here the developers have found something more profitable, zero material cost and somehow legal.

Good but frustrating game. I’ve been playing the game over 3 years now, so obviously I like it enough to stay. People say you just need patience, but that’s only partially true. The new hero’s they release seem to be consistently more powerful than previously released hero’s which means even if you max out heroes, they will only be average in a few months. People who pay (significantly) can buy enough chances to draw the new stronger hero’s then buy the ascension materials to get them to max levels. Also, I’ve waited 3-6 months for a single ascension item (yes patience), but you need 5 or 6 of them to max level a single hero. Sometimes you can get them more often, but they are still pretty rare in the game and with 6 colors/classes of heroes, it can take a really long time to level the hero you want if you don’t ever pay. I have a really great alliance and several of us have become online friends, but make no mistake, this game is frustrating in how long it takes to max level heroes and it takes a lot of your time daily to keep up with all the titans to kill with your alliance, the alliance wars, quests and leveling up. The game play is a lot of fun though and if you get in the right alliance for you, it can be rewarding.

I have this game and I love it.. I have this game. I can tell you that no, it’s not a money sucking machine. No, it’s not that addicting (some furball thinks it is, THIS IS TO YOU STUPID FURBALL!!) me and my parents have this game and it was fun, we still play it time and time again, but I think of other games but this, this is something to pass the time, NOT SLOWLY MAKE YOU INSANE. It has great graphics and the story is awesome. I can tell you all that it’s not to hard. It’s matching colors and defeating monsters, that’s it. The only thing mom paid for is gems, and that was only once for me. Yes, there are tons of ad-like features when you log in, but all you have to do is bush X and then your free to play, no adds or anything! This game is great and anyone that thinks this game is stupid, or that it’s a money sucking machine are way to un-mature to be playing such a sophisticated game. It’s probably way to complicated for their tiny little rainwing brains (or tiny little jelly bean brains, you guys choose) Thank you for reading, Creators are Geniuses, and this game is great. Love, A~ the one who isn’t a rainwing, but a magestic Seawing.

Hm. Not so much fun.. I started this as a fun way to do a match-3 game during my free time. Somehow, it turned into more of a chore than a fun adventure. The part I dislike the most, as some have mentioned, is the match-up during raids. I know the parameters and what they use to determine who you match with, but it still seems like it’s not fair either way and definitely not consistent at all. The amount of resources it takes to get anywhere in the game is a joke, even if you spend money, which is not a guarantee that you’ll get something you actually need/want. It would be different if, like other games, the money you spent got you what you needed all the time. But in this game, it’s a huge gamble and not worth the risk. I’m getting pretty tired of the whole process. It’s not fun anymore. The only good thing I kind of enjoy is the alliance I belong to, which isn’t even a high-ranked one, but it seems to have some fun people so I like that aspect. Now with the wars added, plus raids (which I still hate because there is zero consistency and the matching makes absolutely no sense still), plus the usual gameplay progression, Titans, AND quests/events... it seems like there’s too much going on in one game. Things happen so fast I barely get a chance to participate and that’s disappointing. Plus I feel to get anywhere in this game and to be a competitor, you have to spend money. Not cool.

Great for F2P/C2P. Ads are optional!. The review by Slawguhy is true (game is not ptw). He said it's a slow crawl and meant to be an adventure you play for months/years. This is absolutely true. I've been playing for about 4.5 years now. And while i have spent money here and there, it's not necessary. One thing I've learned over the years is that spending is a gamble similar to winning the lottery (you have a 1.3% chance of pulling legendary heroes in almost every event and theme). But there is a building you get much later in the game that can produce these heroes for free (albeit, also a low chance of getting what you want or need). The benefit of this is that it offers A LOT of variety in PvP and PvE play. If everyone got so the good heroes all the time, everyone would have the same teams. One AMAZING thing about this game that i can't say about many other games is that the ads are completely optional. There are two areas that give ads. One gives random loot and the other gives random low level heroes and troops in exchange for watching. So they're not just optional, they're not necessary for gameplay. You can literally play this game for years without having to pay a dime or watch a single ad! I've never played a mobile game as long as i have played this one. The graphics are great, bugs are infrequent (almost never encounter), it's a lot of fun! Definitely give it a try and see for yourself.

Game is cheating players. This is really a fun game that has room for leadership and teamwork. The problem is after 2 years of playing the game owners decide that no matter how much money a person spends you can no longer get any top pulls, you can’t get the ascension items needed to fully level those same hero’s if you even get one. And then worse of all the matchmaking for war is completely unfair. If your top team is 3500 then your match should be 3500 but noooooooooo I get 4K match. During war you can no longer get and color tiles to play mono. Hero’s are being lowered because players know how to play and they want you to spend more and get nothing in return. Most people have hundreds or thousands invested in this game and yet we can’t even get HotM after spending over 1000 gems (100$). The special event pulls are worthless too. Nothing but 3* feeders and if your lucky enough to get a 4* it’s a feeder too. No special event 5* after spending hundreds on gems to do pulls. It really is ridiculous that the game isn’t rewarding ppl for playing! And cheating players at every turn and yet we continue to play because the game is fun, and we have to much invested with friends n money to quit, it’s just not fair.

Forget Raids. I’ve been playing this for years. Super fun game but I’m fed up with doing raids. They are pointless!!! Yesterday I went on a tear and did a ton of raids. I got my trophies up 2664. Woke up this morning and I was down to 2410. What is the point of raiding if they can just revenge and win? And I’m not talking about team powers that are close. One raid I did the opponents team power is 3989, my team power is 4892. There should be NO WAY they should be able to revenge that, yet they did. This game is fun, but extremely frustrating. The other massive annoyance is when you do a raid, you make one move and it seems like every one of their characters get to attack. It’s stupid. Again, fun game, but can be extremely aggravating. UPDATE- I dropped my star rating out of the pure frustration this game causes. At this point I know you are saying, so delete it if it’s that frustrating. Well the idiot that I am, I have spent a RIDICULOUS amount of money on this game to get gems. Would you throw hundreds of dollars, possibly over $1000 away? If you want to enjoy this game my best advice is, do not join an alliance. Do not do raids!!!!! Just play the daily quests, special events and stick to that. This game is infuriating!!!!!

A pay to win match three game. This is a Puzzle & Dragon like game. Players can assign different heroes into the battle. Match the color corresponding gems to launch attacks and gain mana for the heroes with the same color. The match three gameplay is on the simple part since the purpose of the core gameplay is launch attacks. There’re 2 special combinations which will lead to different special matching. With such depth of the match three gameplay, the key factor of winning is not how good you are at making matches, but depends on the strength of your heroes and armies. That’s why, this game has a mobile SLG like meta system for the resource collection and growth. Players have to invest tons of time and resource to get random heroes cards. And use those cards as resources to upgrade the main heroes. It is a fine choice for this type of game, match three gameplay has its skill barriers for players. The limited steps and puzzles will conflict with the RPG type of battle which eventually leads to confusion and don’t know which is more important. So the current choice is a nice balance between match three gameplay and RPG like battle. Just the match three gameplay is too simple that it makes the game feels more like a pay to win game.

The Best A Mobile Game Can Get. This game has the perfect balance of RPG, base-building, online interaction, and puzzles. It has great features and more than one or two things to do in the entirety of the game. We need more of these rather than poorly programmed cheap games that took a day to make. Empires & Puzzles has great alliance features and account safety so you don’t have to worry about trolls and hackers. I like how you can choose to watch ads instead of the game popping up and forcing you to watch ads all the time. This game is good enough I would’ve figured it would cost money, but it’s completely free! The only complaint I have is that there are offers in the game that can cause pay-to-win people that you can’t defend yourself in a raid or win an alliance war. I love the base-building feature and the raid mechanics. The graphics are great and this game deserves more credit than it’s given. Overall great game and I would recommend it to anyone who loves RPG, team-building, and puzzle games that have an adventurous feel wrapped around it like a blanket.

Most rigged game I’ve ever downloaded.. Seriously, eff this game. So many popups from within the app, not even external ads, make the game borderline unplayable especially right after you open it. $30 sale here, $20 sale there, and they pop up right as you exit out of other windows, but they put the “purchase” button right by the exit button so it’s easy to accidentally buy in-game currency, “gems,” which you need an astronomical amount of to do anything. Expect to pay about $70 in real U.S. dollars PER HERO to level them up to max lvl. Also, the Raids option is absolute BS, automated teams deal twice to 4x as much damage as your own with no chance to parry/block attacks. You maybe get 3-4 turns to beat an opponents team before you’re dead, because their automated dmg is 3x as potent as yours. Titans are ridiculously hard to defeat especially by small alliances, the developers beg for and all but steal your money constantly, they keep saying “we fixed Raids to make them more fair” which really means “we made them even harder because %$&@ you, AND we gave bots and spoofers extra damage and defense.” I want to drive to the developers’ studio and shove Colen’s fire axe where the sun don’t shine, this game had such potential and it just does not deliver. Money-grubbing, cheesy, extremely difficult without pay-to-play, unless you want to throw your phone out of sheer frustration and then ragequit like the weeb you are then don’t download this game.

Addictive & Fun. I kept seeing ads for this game and at first I was annoyed and closed it because I wanted to go back to playing the Blackjack game which showed me this ad. Then it kept popping up and I finally interacted with it and fell into its trap. It’s a well designed game with beautiful graphics and elements of RPG and strategy that I enjoy with humor thrown in. The menu is easy and fun to interact with. It’s a game that requires patience and does not require you to spend real money to advance, although it does help but absolutely not required. I like the challenge of spending as little resource as possible to grow your empire. It’s a fun challenge to figure out what to upgrade and the order that needs to happen. I normally hate seeing ads but this game has cleverly weaved it into its gameplay that makes me look forward to seeing the ads. The only thing I hate about the game is the raids but overall it’s fun and addictive. And there’s a good chance I’ll splurge in the future and spend real money to support this company and developers for creating such an amazing game. It’s been a while since a game has caught and held my attention and makes me want to play it. Well done!

DO NOT under any circumstances spend money on this game.. Been playing for years. Not a bad game and can be fun. Like so many others, eventually spent a little here and there to get better. Then spent more to get competitive. Then a lot more to be the best. So why the bad review? Because the developers refuse to make simple changes to improve the game and are now making huge changes that undo months and sometimes years worth of time, effort and money. It’s like spending and working on building a house only to be told after it’s done that a law is now passed making it illegal for people to live in houses. Sounds crazy, but that’s what you are dealing with here. You get suckered into spending money. Also, they now list odd for the paid gambling to get certain heroes - but the odds are complete bs and the outcomes are fixed. Nowhere else in life will you find the daily defiance of the odds to the extent of this ridiculousness. For example, the odds of getting something good (when you pay) may be listed at 30%. Yet you can go for it 20 times in a row and not get it even once. That’s a 1000 to 1 chance. Yet you will see this kind of thing over and over. And the odds of something bad may be 30% yet you will see it happen a 9 times in a row over and over. That’s a 1 in 50,000 chance. This game had a chance to be great and to be honest. It’s neither. Best to just stay away from this money pit.

Great game... BUT.... Question for the developers - Will you come out and admit here that in order to progress much beyond medium levels, you must spend hundreds, if not thousands of dollars to defeat the built in cheats? I mean there’s no shame in that, but I started playing this game because I thought it wouldn’t be that way. Once you reach a certain level (around 2500 team points) all of a sudden, raid matchups are never equal and you spend tens of thousands in food just to get a fair matchup. The gem colors in puzzles start tilting in favor of the opponent (ie you can’t build mana for your more powerful characters in matches) and finding the items you need to ascend your characters becomes nearly impossible - you can’t even buy them outright - you have to buy packs or “chances” at the option to win the items which, of course, never happens. Finally -and while this is fair it’s frustrating - the people who have spent thousands of dollars have all fully ascended, five star teams that are impossible to beat if you’re a lowly pauper like me. So c’mon developers - can you give us the confirmation or give us a hint of how to advance play if you’re going to try and say none of the above is the case?

Awesome. As far as I’m concerned, this is the best game out there. It’s like they took the fun parts of other games, and put them all in one. Gem matching for the battles, town building for infrastructure, hero cards for strategy... PvE for basic fights, PvP for raids, team PvP for wars. Find the right alliance for yourself, whether you want chatty, intense, casual... it’s all out there. They even have auto play if you want to redo lower levels for rewards, so you can do real life and just tap and have it go! You can definitely play for free. I did for awhile, but my personal philosophy is that if I like a game and play it a lot, then I want to pay the game makers for the product. I do pay for this game (get a feel for the deals, and wait for a sale). But, I get a ton of fun from this, and play it a lot, and I love my alliance which has terrific people in it, so I am getting good value. If you spend money on games, then I suggest setting an annual limit, and looking for deals along the way. Like I said, just personal philosophy; you can play for free with no problem, just advancing slower than those who pay something.

Hit to miss ratio. Now, don’t get me wrong; I really do like this game. I enjoy the story behind it, the game is including while using strategy, and also has an option where the game plays for you. The heroes are clearly thought through, and each design is unique to the type of hero and the way they play their role in the game. The play is smooth, with little to no lag. However, not every diamond is cut perfectly. During the game, whenever a move is played on an enemy, the hits have a chance of missing the target. No big deal, that’s to be expected in a game like this. However, my last plays of recent levels (and this may just be me not quite being far enough into the game yet to get past this) have shown that the moves I play tend to miss the enemies on almost every hit without fail. The enemies, on the other hand, whether NPC or player, have a much higher chance of actually hitting their chosen targets. Again, this may just be a problem with my game or something that is just unlucky for me. This is my only real problem with this game, though. Gameplay is relaxing and fun, and the occasional Titan that pops up is fun to engage with your teammates. A very well thought through RPG, and certainly one to be respected for the work and creativity put into it.

I’d give it 4 but. I’d give it 4 or even 5 stars, the graphics & game play are really good, but I have an issue with the drop rates of the items you need to level up your legendary hero’s. It’s almost non existent. Even if you spend the money on the “special” promos you don’t get the items you need to level up past 70. Example: I’ve needed spy glasses to level up one of my legendary heroes. I’ve got 3......in almost 6 months of daily playing. 3. I’ve needed shields for 2 of my other hero’s for just as long. 6 months and I still can’t get the needed ingredients to level anyone up. Also the drop rates for legendary characters is very low to begin with, so when you’re fortunate enough to get one you want to level them up. A lot of players drop out due to this frustration. Really need to look at these drop rates as it turns a fun game into a grind & then it’s no fun. Update: our group was chatting about this and our group leader has had 5 hero’s that he hasn’t been able to level up after over 500 days & a lot of money spent. All of them ice hero’s. Since my review I came back to drop it to 1 star. The drop rates have gotten worse. You pretty much have to spend big money in order to level up legendary hero’s. Our group has been slowly disintegrating due to this. So if you play be warned, you won’t ever get anywhere without spending a ton of money & then still sit there with hero’s not playable. Congrats to the developers on making a money tree.

Don’t bother spending money. I’ve played for over 4 years and the game isn’t bad to casual play but don’t waste money buying gems or summons. I’ve spent my last dollar on this game from doing so. The last 2 special events, I bought enough to get 20 hero summons each event. In 20 summons I got the same 3 star hero 5 times and another 3 star hero 7 times. 13 rolls with the same 2 heroes. The last event, 20 summons I got one 3star hero 5 times, another 3 star 4 times and another of the same hero 2 times. Over half of the summons and only got 3 hero’s. The odds of this happening not once but 2 different events twice are astronomical and their summoning system is rigged so you’ll spend more money. After contacting them to get my money back when it happened the second time, I was pretty much told, there wasn’t anything wrong with their system and everything is done fairly and the issue was closed. This not only happened to me but also another player in the alliance I belong to. The more money you spend, the more disappointed you’ll be.

Great game but.... I love this game. Been playing it for over a year now every day. Very enjoyable and lots to do the more you move up the levels. The only thing i would suggest is not to spend a dime on this game. You’re better off just waiting and saving up your diamonds to buy better characters. Don’t waste your money because they’re just going to give you the same duplicate characters that you get from saving up your diamonds. Would be nice if there was a bigger chance to get decent cards when you’re investing real money. I’ve invested a bit into the game and so far have not received so much as even one decent card from my investments. I literally just keep getting duplicates of the cards that I already have that are three stars and four stars. You’re better off saving your money and just taking your time to find decent characters cards. My daughter plays this as well and she is in her first month and has already received a five star character from spending her diamonds that she saved up. You may think that investing your money will earn you better cards faster but it just spends your money faster. Over a year of playtime and I still don’t have a five star card. Just isn’t fair!

Addicting. Definitely your candy crush alternative but with an interesting story to go with it (though the main characters seem to be a little under powered). I want to give this a higher rating but all of the pop ups you get whenever you open the app are ridiculous! It’s like opening a virus ridden website and the fact that the button you press to buy things is right where you’d put your finger to swipe is stupid and begging for cash. The wait times for things are crazy (a week for training and 15 hours for an item?!). The level system for tournaments and even raids can be all over the place (sometimes you’re matched with somebody waaay over powered for you in the tournaments and there is nothing you can do about it). The algorithm system has to be broken. There are way too many times I’ve lost battles because the enemy will be on one side of the screen but nothing will match until it’s too late. Besides all of that it’s fun and forces you to learn strategy. I appreciate all of the characters and how you can level them and their unique skills. Definitely something to fill your time until the really long wait times kick in. Have fun!

Great game, developers read?. This game is very well made and thought out. The heroes are awesome and it doesn’t objectify or degrade female heroes with their outfits. I love the alliances. There are just a few things that made me take away a star. 1. First, I wish we could trade within our alliance. Maybe after being in it for a certain period of time? I’m sure you guys have heard this before. 2. Regarding the titan, the game is out to get you. I had 3 fire heroes against a green titan. I had maybe a total of 2 or 3 red shields on the board at a time for the entire round. This always happens. Also, when my heroes have full mana and it’s at the end of the round, that’s when I’ll magically get combo after combo instead of being able to use my mana. 3. The wait times are crazy long. I’m sorry but 7 days for an upgrade is crazy. We also use way more ore than food yet require less mines than food production? Anyway, this game really is good and I’ve been playing for over a year now. I’ve made friends in the alliance and the developers really take the time to make the app better for everyone. Their sales/specials are often and fair. I love it :)

Used to be a solid game. This game has progressively gotten worse and worse. I one point I would had said you can play the game and be pretty successful without paying. Anymore , however, they have dialed way back on mats so if you’re lucky enough to get five star hero’s you won’t get the mats to lvl them. I have multiple five stars that I’ve had for YEARS and can’t get enough mats to lvl them all the way up. Of coarse you can pay $30+ bucks to be able to get the mats to do 1 hero if you have the other mats to do so, spoiler, you won’t unless you neglect every other hero until you pay for your mats. Now I couldn’t always say this , they wouldn’t keep up exactly , but you could get through a few five star hero’s. If you stayed active on the game. I would reward them by buying gems to get hero’s at 30 bucks a pop, for a ten pull, and didn’t flinch, now unless you buy everything you will not be successful at this game. The tile drops have gotten to be crap too. You have a team that is solid…. Well they just won’t give you the tiles to win, so all you end up doing is charging up the other teams hero’s and get frustrated as you see them pick one hero off after another. One week your entire alliance does well (in wars) with descent boards, the next nothing but poo. They claim it’s random drops I STRONGLY disagree. This game has done nothing but become a money pit and a frustration. Always figured games were to be fun and relaxing this one breaks that mold 10 fold.

Infuriating, rewarding, frustratingly fun. Been playing this game for about a year now. Partly because I’ve made some great friends in my alliance I’ve been a daily player. The game itself is a clever combination of elements built around a core match 3 setup. The defining gameplay feature centers on the placement of your matches on the board dictate what enemy you hit, it opens up a depth of strategy and fun not found in other rpg/match 3 mashups. As others have noted it is a looong term game. As far as requiring money to advance, It certainly helps, but there are many high level players in our alliance that have spent $0-$20 over a year span. Most frustrating element is drop rates on items needed to ascend your 5* heroes. Honestly if you play a lot you will be able to pick up the items you need to ascend 4* heroes regularly, but those dang top end materials are few and far between. It took me 10 months to get enough materials to max my first 5* hero. This game is a grind, the greed of developers can be a bit offensive, but the irony of spending money on gems to get better heroes is the better heroes are worthless until you play the game enough to get the items needed to make them stronger so it is really counterproductive to your game to do so. Better off being patient, finding a good alliance and letting your team grow organically.

Not A “Pay To Win” Game. Let me be perfectly clear. Does this game have micro transactions? Yes it does. It’s a free to play phone game and they have to have some way to make money. You are not obligated to pay anything at any time. I know people that have not spent a dime on this game but I’ve been playing for way longer than I have. There are other claims that this is a pay to win the game and that is largely false. You could spend $10,000 on pools in this game and not get a single thing that you really want well someone could do one free pool and get the thing you’ve been looking for. That’s just the luck of the draw. That’s the great equalizer of the game. I love this game and I love the alliance system and I play every single day. My biggest gripe about the game is that there are definitely a lot of social systems that could use improvements. The thing about that however is that the forms are very active and the mods on the forms are very attentive to your suggestions. I was actually responsible for creating an entire troop type in this game just based on the suggestion that I made on the forums and the moderators told me that my suggestion was being implemented It was really cool to feel like I was a part of the game

Frustrating. This is the only game I have that I frequently consider deleting. I’ve been playing for a long time and I’m tired of the problems. I can’t believe the company cares so little about its customers that they won’t fix long-standing common complaints. If you think you can relax with this game, think again. The playing field is horribly tilted against you, leading to vast amounts of frustration. It doesn’t matter how good of a team you build, you’ll be dealt awful boards that guarantee your loss before you even make a move. This happens a LOT. The raid system sets you up for failure and the numbers they give for you to use to gauge your opponent’s power is not actually helpful. Teams rated significantly weaker than yours will annihilate you. Frequently. Also, once you manage to get one of the awesome top tier heroes, it can take a year to collect the excessively rare items you need to level them fully. That is, unless you’re willing to pay obscene amounts of money. Then it only takes maybe 6 months. This game does start out fun, has a ton of heroes & events, and continues to add new content, but it gets to be very frustrating before long. Until they finally address these issues, save yourself the trouble. Don’t play.

Would you play this game if you are bad luck?. I don’t know. We are a group of 7 people. I must spend some money sometime. However, my friends doesn’t. They are poor, so They save a lot of gems for fortune. Until now they are at level 28, they are still bad luck and didn’t get any 5 heros. Even if you have 5 stars hero. You still need to wait a long time to find the items to update your heros. My clan members just told me... He just got the last ring that he needs since almost 2 years... We lost titan, war by weird matching. I am scared. Today My friends tell me they will quit the game. They told me :” It is so expensive, nonsense, unreasonable waiting for a really good game.” Im sad. I think if they quit, I will quit too. I dont know how to play game alone without my friends. This game used to give a really great memories. Update: I think I did my review for over 5 months until you guys responded. :-/ . The game is getting better than before a lot. After a year playing the game, My group is now only have 2 left. They all give up on the game because of bad luck with summons and collecting items to max training for 5 stars heroes ( 7 members before). They got frustrated and mad then left. I was sad cause all my best friends are left. However the game already got better by adding some good quests before they left. ( still so long but better than nothing). I want to play a game for long term even without my friends. My new friends from my alliance are amazing.

Decent game, pushes for money a lot. Overall I think the game is pretty good on its own. The developers did a good job with the story and character designs. Bad part is that it’s all about money. Every time you log in and everything you do, there’s a notification to spend money. You can progress through the story very slowly and grind for a long time or spend money and progress at a decent rate. You can participate in raids and guild wars but unless you’ve put months in or spent money you won’t do very well for a long time. It’s a serious problem but I doubt it will ever change. The game also has a way to completely keep the board void of a color or provide an extremely limited number of the color creating issues for matches and what not. It’ll also cut you down to one move at a time from the start and you won’t be able to get combos. Honestly, the game just plays as if it wants to frustrate you to spend money. It would be an amazing game if the developers didn’t push so much to make a buck. Sorry to see something good ruined like this.

Terrible design. As others have pointed out, it’s gonna cost an INSANE amount of money to EVEN HAVE A CHANCE to climb the ranks. You can drop $100 on the largest gem bundle and you are not guaranteed to get even one top tier item/hero/etc. The alternative is to spend literally months grinding out the same boring levels to build up resources in the hopes that you can get what you need to progress and upgrade a single hero. No exaggeration, expect 3-5 pop ups every single time you open the app trying to get you to buy stuff. Porn sites have fewer pop ups. I’ve played other games with in app purchases, but this is a whole new level of money sink. To give an example, clash of clans also offers gems for purchase. However, you can get exactly what you want upgraded if you choose to spend money. Here, not only do you get fewer gems per dollar, but this is basically buying pulls on the lever of a slot machine. I don’t even know how that’s legal while I cannot play online poker because that’s “gambling.” Absolutely everything in the game is luck based, skill is not even a factor. You’ll get a lot more for your time and (if you choose) money elsewhere. Unless you have a couple thousand dollars burning a hole in your pocket, or a couple hours a day for the next year or so, avoid this one.

Fun game but..... Like most games it can be free to play as long as you plan on playing for years to catch up to compete with the big boys although in saying that there is always people your level to compete with. You can easily spend a load of money to have the latest and greatest heroes. Saving 8000 ($80 worth) for a 30 hero pull does not guarantee you will get anything good. Most of all. The game is based around your ranking which is determined by the number of cups you gain in raids. Saying that. It would be great if they weren’t overly lopsided. You get daily tasks to defeat heroes in raids and as a reward you get food iron even gems key thing here being gems. They can’t give them away easily. You can basically determine if you have a chance or not by looking at the gems before you move them. Even if you greatly over powered your opponent. That doesn’t guarantee you a win. Especially if you need the win to collect those free gems. Overall a fun game. Just a lot of unfair moments and if anyone else out there like myself just wants to play a fair game. Then I don’t suggest this. An inexpensive game. I don’t suggest this. Meeting good people and working as a team. I suggest this game.

Greatly designed game!!. I have been playing this game for over 3 years, and have seen it progress overtime. In my experience, most of the people saying that the game is only “pay to win” are people the who have only been playing the game for a little bit. Yes, the chances of getting a 5 star are low, but even for people that pay the chances are the same. Unfortunately I did lose my account (100% my fault I got a new phone) and I now have no five stars at all, however this is not a problem, as the way the game is designed, my team of max four stars has beaten a team of max five stars. The other thing that a lot of people don’t understand is, that this game takes time. You not gonna speed run the game (unless you wanna spend thousands of dollars) you have to take the time to get your hero’s, level them up, and improve them through multiple different ways. Overall this is a fun, addicting, and balanced game. Keep up the good work, can’t wait to see what comes out next!!

Zynga has destroyed this game. This used to be a fun game that was competitive for a reasonable amount of money (or even F2P). Unfortunately, since taking over, Zynga has accelerated the the pace of advancement in an attempt to maximize profit at the expense of all players, except those willing to pay thousands to stay competitive. Beyond that, they have turn the game into an endless series of events that require massive amounts of farming to obtain any real benefit. Worse yet, they are providing what may be the worst customer service I have ever seen. It is nearly impossible to “speak/chat” with anyone, and when you have an issue, it takes days to get a response. Unfortunately, a few medical conditions prevent me from being able to play at the pace needed to keep up. I use the accessibility functions on iOS to assist, but Zynga’s scanning continuously returns false positives on my account. Despite speaking with them on two occasions, and being assured that my account activity was acceptable and that no suspension would take place, I have now been suspended. As noted above, it is near impossible to get help anymore, so I have been locked out for 2 days. Clearly they do not take accessibility seriously have no regard for the ADA. Stay away from this game if you want to avoid frustration.

Used to be good. I’ve been playing this game since nearly its release. I’ve invested time and money into it for countless hours of entertainment. Game had its hiccups at first but the devs were good at updating and fixing them. It has a good social aspect as far as team play, given you find a good and active clan. However, in the past five months or so the game has been going downhill as far as gameplay. The loot system has been updated and now more difficult to win higher tier loot, so sad, and gaining 5* heroes. It’s a color matching puzzle game which you use to attack titans, monsters, as well as other players. On of the strategies in this game is using the color wheel in your favor, called stacking. Before the game felt a little more balanced giving you the colors you need, now it’s quite the opposite. The colors you need are ALWAYS far and few. The devs have indicated that Is not the case, but playing it will prove otherwise. So many people of posted this on the forums, however the devs (lying to their consumers) keep saying it’s not true. Posts have been locked and deleted. Although the game is free you can pay to hasten building, expanding, and pull heroes (random). As much time and money I put into this game I enjoyed it when the devs began seeing dollar signs instead of keeping their customers happy. No longer fun to play. So many other games out there that deserve my time.

Only for big spenders. I was a huge fan of the game from launch, and have happily spent a fair amount on the game. It’s always been an expensive game; you won’t make it to the top of the rankings unless you spend considerably. And if you don’t have the top ‘key’ hero’s your chances of winning any of the top rewards is practically non-existent. It is and has become a game that is exclusively geared towards the top spenders only. They continue to reduce the drop rates of 5* hero’s, so even spending large amounts gets you nil. The rewards system hasn’t been updated since launch, so at a certain level your progress comes to a screeching halt (unless you spend like a mega whale). And they continually nerf the more common hero’s, but don’t nerf the rare super powerful hero’s that only a handful of their highest spenders have. They updated POV recently to add rewards for completing early, but then made it significantly harder (lower completion points) so the update is moot for any but the top paying players. I still play because of my investment, but won’t spend in the game again. I would not recommend this game to anyone who doesn’t want to make frequent large purchases.

Once upon a time. Once upon a time this was a fantastic game. But since the December purchase this game has failed miserably. That was when corporate mogul Zynga purchased little giant. I have seen a game where you could find rare heroes and get decent in game drops decline into a game all about the almighty dollar. They say it’s free but unless you pay to play you will never advance. Case in point five star heroes. I have a few teams of them. However I have not picked up a single one since prior to last December. I have a moderately strong team as well (4100 power strong). Since the takeover the in game trophy count I have continues to fall. I cannot in any way shape or form even beat a team at 3500 power be it in war or raid mode. It’s not about my team mix for it is strong. It is about how utterly random the tiles lay out for an individual player. In conclusion unless a new player is willing to spend a lot of money on this game said new player has little to no room to truly ever grow and become powerful. As in most other Zynga platform games, what once was a fun game is now a ridiculous waste of time and energy for a player to have fun in a free game for the greedy corporation has decided it’s all about the money. A one time 5 star rating I have is changed to a 1 star rating. Avoid this game unless you are truly willing to spend heavy.

Adjustments. I’ve never put money towards a game ever in my life. Empires & Puzzles is the only game I’ve enjoyed playing. I admire the different deals you guys do with obtaining more gems. However, there are minor things that can be modified to make my rating jump to 5 stars. I just feel like you should be able to upgrade multiple buildings at once. Waiting 2 days for one building to finish is ridiculous. Either upgrading multiple buildings at once or changing the time frame would be suitable. Then, there’s the troops that can’t be upgraded. What’s the point in having all the same troops if I can’t add them to one another. I have 1 star troops just sitting there for no reason. I’m given literally the same troops every random draw. The algorithm for that should be fixed to where it’s not so rare to get 4 or 5 star troops/ heros. And if there is a button to level up your troops then that should be more apparent. Instead of searching high and low to figure out if it’s possible to do so. Also, how are you supposed to use the emblems without any since of direction? I’m over here stuck with 41 of the same emblem because I don’t know when I can use it nor how I can. Other than that, I really do enjoy the game but it would be better if my suggestions were carefully thought out.

Listen to everyone that is saying it’s a money grabber!. This game started out being fun, unfortunately I didn’t read the reviews warning not to spend money. I have spent too much money trying to get top tier heroes. I got a few at first, then I noticed I had mysteriously lost about four of them. I got a quick warning that if I didn’t sign in, someone could steal your heroes but I thought they were talking about signing into Game Center. The warning would flash by really quick so I don’t know what I need to sign into. I joined the alliance so that i could play the wars, i think however if you win you should get more lives than just three. The timing is terrible because sometimes you play against alliances that have the opposite time zone so by the time you’re awake and free to play, you end up playing the players that are the top players and you don’t have equal power, you get creamed! Or worse, you never had a chance to play. I won’t be spending anymore money but because I spent an embarrassingly large amount of money already, I will continue to play.

Loving it early on. I’m excited to play each day. I’ve read the other reviews and I’m not phased about the progress slowing down. Personally I think it’s too fast at the beginning. I’ve joined an alliance, been part of the team to defeat a Titan and gotten some cools stuff.

You will have to spend to progress. This is a great game, the lower levels are fast and exciting, however to progress in the long run you will have to spend money, you can play for free but it will be difficult to progress. Be aware before you get hooked, I’ve played for eighteen months but I do regularly spend and have made top tier.

What a con job!. This game is all about extracting $,£,€,¥... It’s designed to get every dime out of you! And will give you nothing but disappointment in return! I wished I had never given them my $$$! But I will promise you this, I won’t give you not another dime! If you are a beginner, take this warning! There are so many other games that give you a fair run for your money! Try playing Raid, MythWars, war of Valhalla and three kingdom! I promise you all of them will treat you better! Don’t waste your money on this stupid game! And heads up, no point in complaining to their support! As they have pre scripted paragraphs ready for you, and will respond with some BS comment that how every aspect of this game is all assigned by some random algorithm designed to give away mats, heroes, troops, tiles throughout the game! TRUST ME, DONT BELIEVE ANY OF THEIR BS Stories! Also I am putting together a class action, to make E&P pay back all the money we have wasted here! I will keep you all posted, when the time comes to join-in, in this class action!

Greedy game with greedy developers.. You progress fast at the beginning. Then, all of a sudden, progress slows to snail speed and the only way to get anywhere is to use your gems. These don’t last long, and there are very expensive options to buy more that won’t last long. Also, the enemies become very powerful at the same time, and the colour combos you need to defeat them become more rare. This doubles the lives you need to defeat the enemies. While this is happening, the heroes you can get from replaying earlier levels become more scarce. Meanwhile, all the upgrades cost a lot more food and iron (or gems), so upgrading buildings takes forever. Of course, as the building levels increase, the time they take to upgrade is far too long. Playing the game slows to a grinding halt and isn’t enjoyable anymore. I’m about to delete it. Shame, because it’s a well designed game ruined by greedy developers. Not worth it.

Absolutely love this game. Thank you to the developers who work continuously on this game. I have been playing for approximately 4 years and have not spent any money on the game. This game has made the purchase of my Apple phone worthwhile . I have been a part of a few different alliances during my game time and everyone has been supportive and great team players. So have have fun ,play and discover, as you can see from the reviews you will be a part of the empires and puzzles team for years to come

Trade hero’s. For the next update on empires and puzzle can we be able to trade hero’s and things with other people in our alliances. So when you tap on the person when they are online there can be a button where it says trade player and then on the screen it will pop up with (person)would like to trade with you accept or decline. If this really happens it would really be appreciated thank you if you do

Meh. Fun game, like the battles (even though it's mostly lucky combinations) lot of people complaining about PTW style play but if you're patient and have other things to do with your life then the iron and food resources fill up fast and you can always play the easier levels again to get more loot. Overall a fun game with great graphics and game play

Grind Or Greed. Been playing for 4 years. Probably dropped over au$500 on the game and feel mid-level. The grind becomes a habitual effort lacking enjoyment. The rewards are few and far between. I play this game out of habit not because I enjoy it anymore. Don’t expect much if you’re not going to pay, don’t expect much more if you do pay unless you plan on dropping hundreds of dollars into the game and even then you’ll still be disappointed. They bring out more OP heroes to entice you, and your old heroes that you spent so much time, and maybe money, on become redundant. It’s frustrating when the computer controlled characters that exactly the same as yours will do 30-50% more damage than your own. I was told it was to compensate for poor AI driving the opponents in battles. The developers don’t care. At the end of the day you’ve got a casual game to play and they just want you to spend money on it. The gameplay and outcomes are rigged to a subtle degree to make you spend more money on it. Don’t waste 4 years on this game like I did; it will just leave you feeling ripped off and empty.

Greedy and rigged. This game was totally awesome in the early days however it is now more boring than watching the grass grow in your backyard. Developers are way too greedy and will eventually ruin this game completely. Everything takes forever!!! From upgrades to leveling up heroes or summoning them. Free players don’t seem to get anywhere fast, spending a couple of bucks here and there seemed to half the time and get things moving along well for a short while. Players who spend thousands of dollars get there quickly but lose interest as game is very repetitive with nothing to look forward too. I guess I’m in the group of players who spent couple of dollars ($100 or less) and was able to drag the fun for a while but fun is gone and time to delete the game.

Enjoying this even after a year. The developers keep coming up with new ideas and so it makes it interesting. Compared with some other games I’ve played it doesn’t destroy you if you can’t get stronger. You don’t have to pay if you don’t want to, although there are occasional good offers.

Meh. I tried this and found the matching gems part helped me get to sleep at night, so I continued playing - it still works well for that. The rest of the game is heavily geared towards people who can afford to spend what I would call “a lot” of money - the kind of money that would buy you a nee PlayStation game on a regular enough basis that you’d never have to touch this again. You can still play for free, but be prepared to grind for years and years and always be behind those who are willing to $pend.

Enjoy the game.. Been playing for about 5yrs , The game is not hard, it’s a lot of fun. Haven’t spent a lot of money on it, at most about $200 over 5 years. If you take the game as it’s intended, a pass time, it can be really a lot of fun.

Tripped. This game falls flat at the feet of other similar story alliance building games because of the awkward and sad dialogue choices. I could go into how the games algorithm stops you from progressing if you don’t buy or grind for months, but I don’t really need to, to say why this is a mediocre ,at best, game. To be honest just my opinion I don’t like the cutscenes. It just feels like the game tripped, fell on it’s face and decided “This is what I should be like.” Not worth getting if you have anything better to do and you may as well get a mainstream game instead.

Good start but shine wears quickly. The game starts as a reasonable match 3 hero collecting, alliance building game with a simple story and PvP elements. However it falls down quickly. While you progress quickly early on, you then become stuck in a grind for better heroes and ascension items, which are few and far between...unless you are willing to part with some serious money. The biggest issue is that once you get around to level 20-25, your progress slows down so much that it's a very long grind to get anywhere, often waiting for months on end to get items to ascend your heroes...if you're lucky. Have a look, but you'll soon see why many long term gamers have become frustrated.

Good game. The game is very good but if patience isn’t your go, then this game might not be for you. You do progress fairly quickly at the start but upon reaching a certain level things slow down and become more of a grind. Joining a active team will help during these stages and help you progress further. I enjoy this challenging game.

Suggestion for accessibility. There needs to be a way to turn off all the flashing/high animation. Staff have made a good attempt to let you dim colours but all the flashing/animation esp of special moves is extremely difficult for someone with sensory overload/autism/visual issues. I LOVE the game that the premise is simple, colour matching to win, bonus content like building characters. But any type of flashing without warning or options to turn it off can be both upsetting and dangerous to neurodivergent or epileptic people. I've been playing for ages and being disabled/sick I love just mindlessly playing, when I can't do anything else but I have serious trouble competing in raids and special levels bc I get sick from overstimulation. There should be an option where you can play old levels for free with either no or low rewards so that you aren't constantly shut out by the timers. Yes, if you want to do extra stuff I understand why you might pay for gems etc (I have sometimes) but being constantly shut out of the game is alienating people who love it. Even if you got to play until you lost x amount of times, that'd be something. Also if you've worked to gain things for a special summon and you've done the work, it isn't fair that the summon theme ends and you're waiting for months for it to circulate back. Also you should be able to sell excess items for rewards like gems or plays etc. I think if they fixed this stuff you'd have 5x the player base :)

Don’t waste your money. I played this game for a long time and I think like all games it’s run its course all developers seem to do this when the find a hit, they get greedy and this one is no exception, I loved this game but now it’s not worth the dollars I have hero’s I can not level after 5 years and I spend!! The drop rates are off and for an intelligent gamer the algorithm that controls play is horribly obvious it was a good game and time killer when I started and you could even go F2P and still have a good go with a competitive team if you were patent but it’s lost so much as the developer tried to get more money out of its players. This was a winner but it’s just lost that feel and it comes down to the dollar

AVOID AVOID AVOID. If you have and endless cash supply devoted to lining the pockets of the developers then download this game. Could not be a more rigged game available to play. If I could give this game less than zero stars I would. Raids are pre determined before you start, and do not get me started on the alliance wars they cannot be more rigged. DO NOT invest your time or god forgive, you money to this game you will be sorely disappointed. I wish I had the terminology to explain the back end reasoning for it being such a terrible game to play. All I can say is if the game, or the algorithms decide that you are not going to win, it matters not how strong your team is nor how much money you spend nor does it matter how weak your opponent is, you are NOT going to defeat your opponent if it is pre-determined that you will lose. AVOID, AVOID, AVOID. I have already spent too much time on this review considering the developers will simply either ignore it and it not be posted or create some type of excuse for the blatant rigging of this game.

Don’t put any money into this game. The games is ok, but the over reliance on “random” means you need to pour thousands into this game if you want to have a consistently fun time playing. The random aspect of battles mean unless you way over power the other fighter you will lose a lot. My progress has stalled not going to make any gains until the create heroes building I have gives me a legendary rare drop. The new area to do PvE in is nice but it was locked to 3 provinces soon was cleared in a weekend nothing much left to do, but log on, use up the resources auto playing and log off again. Sad I really enjoyed the first few months, now it feels like a WoW grind for a tiny gain.

In it for the long game.. Not a game you can just win over night but well worth setting up a team for the win. Would love to see the developers offer trading of items within the alliance or gifting items etc. Also a character tree in which you can see the full rank of characters and also the option to purchase them outside of the Simmons pot luck. That would be awesome. A really good game though and would highly recommend joining a alliance.

Could have been great but..... Developers are killing their cash cow. Loot is insanely hard to come by. Getting your heroes to the final tier takes months. The raiding system has been changed so you lose to players way below you. Costs lots of money to be competitive and you have to spend lots more to stay there. Game won’t be here by the end of 2018. Save your money and play something else.

A pleasure to play. Played a lot of mobile games over the years and the majority require a lot of real money to advance as well as being online for long periods of time else you get out Found this a much more pleasurable game where its up to the individual to pay to win rather then being bombarded with ads to purchase items. Gratz to developers great game to play at my leasure

Patience. A fun game which isn’t so much a PTW, if you’ve got the patience. I jump in for around 25 mins a day and that’s about enough time to drain the energy meters and upgrade heroes, then I forget about it until the next day. Alliance features are a really cool mechanic which has kept me around and people are overall really friendly in this app. Well done, I like this game.

Not a game for impatient people. I have been playing this game for about 4 years now. For the first 18 months I made a point of not paying for a single thing. I had been sucked into the money pit that was Vikings and I didn’t want to go down that path again! Whatever sad stories you hear in negative reviews, this game can be played without spending a single thing. Where people, myself included, do end up spending money is in the later stages of the game when upgrades take longer - again, you don’t have to, but I chose to. If you want to get the most out of the game, be patient and also join an Alliance. If you do join an Alliance, make sure that you contribute daily or every couple of days at least - as a courtesy. Time-wise, you can get away with 30 minutes a day - unlike the old days of Angry Birds, when you stopped playing when your phone ran out of charge! I am lucky to be in a positive Alliance, it is after all - just a game. :-)

Excellent at start, terrible later on. When you start playing this, it's great. Progression occurs quickly and you can move through the main quest map at reasonable speed. Later on, enemies get far too hard, so you need to upgrade buildings and craft items to progress. This is of course, natural. However, it takes FOREVER to upgrade and craft stuff. I'm probably midway? through the game and I have to wait THREE DAYS for some process to finish (upgrading or crafting or training) During this time, you can't do 2 of the same process, so, you're locked out from making any further progression. Unless you've bought a second builder or use gems. My main gripe with this game is the cost of everything. For me, the cheapest option for gems is 7 or 8 bucks for 400 gems. Put this into perspective: some of the LONG upgrades cost OVER 1000 gems. And this is just for ONE upgrade. How much does the developer(s) expect their players to pay? Ridiculous! For me, personally, I just play this VERY casually. So, I can wait for things. But for many others, I think the cost of things with real money and the HUGE wait times will turn people away. Be prepared to pay A LOT of money or wait A VERY LONG TIME.

Work hard for progress. Fun game with minimal back-story - but hey, the game mechanics are solid. As with all FTP games, if you’re not one of those PTW (Pay To Win) people with deep pockets, then as expected it’s a bit of a grind to get the high end heroes as well as the required materials to ascend them. It’s ridiculous how other reviewers rate the game down because you have to put in a bit of effort to reach the end-game. If you don’t have the patience to work on your deck, then pay for it. That’s not a flaw of the game. It’s working exactly as designed. Kudos for not requiring players to log on at certain times in order to get free energy or anything like that. Relaxed gameplay, but won’t appeal to lazy players who expect everything to be handed to them on a silver platter (I.e. not for those who don’t have a modicum of patience).

Fast beginning. It’s a fun game that combines strategy with puzzles. I’m you start moving up quickly but it soon becomes a grind fest to get anywhere. Just like in life, if you want to advance and win quickly you need to have money to burn. In this it’s for gems to summon more powerful units and to get bonuses like extra builders to build your base.

Annoying. Algorithm and logic is rubbish. Annoying at its finest. If the raids are written to allow you to win more trophies if the component has higher team power and holds more trophies than you. That is Always the case for those raiding me, but don’t apply when I raid others. Unfair and annoying. Boards should be decent, doesn’t allow you to have a fair chance at raids or maps. This has in-app purchases, it is crazy how you should pay more than the average money to progress in this game. Also don’t understand how this game has ranking 4.6. Would delete this app ASAP but choose to co play with my partner. Dumbest game ever.

Hard start but good end!. Early game is really hard to get about but the more i play the easier it gets well this is mostly a pay to win game but im doing grinding daily and see ive not spent anything and got myself two 5 stars hero! All hero are pure luck so no hard feelings! I think this game is unique its not like other games i played it dont stress you out like gardenscape! I totally recommend this game to others!!

Error. This game is waste of time and I am not playing it anymore because it is working good till you reach level 20 but then you can’t increase your troop’s ability, it ask you for spending money and also all updates will take more then 2 days which is completely weird. Do not waste your time guys. Also if you got some crystals and try to buy a new hero then you never get that particular hero but you get something different which is error of this game. I hope my review will save your life and time. Cheers from Australia...

Amazing game with some great advise!. I do recommend this game, this game is amazing! Lots of rewards, great game if your board, keeps you entertained and no ads unless you want to get extra rewards than what they offer and an extra low hero! A little improvement I would like the creators to add is when we participate in the war, I ask if there could be a chat bar so we can chat to the other team! For example, saying “gg” or “do you have anymore good hero’s?” ect. But over all this game is super and you should try it out!!

Best game ever. Although you have to wait to get hero summons there’s lots of fun stuff to do like collect iron and food also train hero’s there’s lots of things to do while your waiting for your hero summons. Although you won’t always get the hero you want it always gives you useful hero’s and troops

Cash cow getting milked dry. A good concept and even somewhat enjoyable in the game but this is a very typical pay to win game. Perhaps not even typical actually since it is so ravenous. To put it in perspective, $7 will get you 400 gems. This will buy you a single hero that will be anywhere between tier 3 and 5 (though the way these things are weighted that is almost definitely a 3). Without having paid anything into the game, it took about 10 days to get the gems for that. Combine that with the options in that buy a hero screen have options for buy 10 or buy 30 at once, it is pretty absurd how much these developers are expecting you to spend just to get to roll their weighted dice. Strong concept torn down by excessive greed.

One of the best games I’ve ever played. I always keep coming back to this game (which is saying something since I’ve got like eighteen games on my phone that I’ve gone off of but I’m too lazy to delete) and every aspect of it enthralls me. I’m part of the best alliance and the members of said alliance never fail to make me smile. 100% recommend this game

Alright not as bad as people say. So I have had this before but I got a new device had to start all over again takes a while to get back to where I was if u spend money in the game it’s really expensive it does help u progress I chose not to looking at all the prices at the start it is really fun and exciting but as u get better at it so does the Enemies slow to progress but still fun I play it most days but takes a long time to upgrade overall it’s a good game like it but really slow be prepared to be stuck on a level for a while 👍

Decent game. When you first start you move up quickly but like all games the stronger you get the harder it gets. If you want to keep progressing quickly you have to pay for it but from what everyone keeps telling me this is one of the few games where if you don’t want to spend money you don’t have you. You will get where you want to be but it just requires patience (or A LOT of patience some times). Pay attention to the odds they give you when you spend gems to buy hero’s/troops THEY ARE REAL ODDS so don’t delude yourself in thinking otherwise. As a heads up they have the option for a second builder, if you truely want to help yourself you really need that, it’s cheap for what it gives you in the game.

Money grabber. One of those games where everything takes ages when you don’t spend money on gems. In the end you never get satisfied anyways as it’s pretty much based on luck (how often the right jewels line up). Youll also find that depending on how you line up your troops, the game has very “convenient” way of playing against you and respawning the kind of jewel you dont bank on or simply placing them in the disadvantageous spots. Frustrating more than entertaining.

Slow and money hungry. Am still relatively new but progress has slowed considerably , waiting a day for castle to update (really) oh forgot the fast fix just spend gems. I am willing to spend if the gains are worthwhile, to test this I have purchased the monthly VIP pack , let’s see how you treat your VIPs.? You only get one chance to keep me as a PAYING customer , don’t waste it.

Need Food. Nice game, ruined by greedy leveling and raiding concepts that force you to buy gems. If you have will power and don’t mind a slow progression then you’ll be fine if you lean on the other side of the fence good luck and I hope you have a good income to support this very addictive game. I won’t buy the gems as I feel that there is little value overall and as some of the other poster have said they don’t last very long. Nice game could be better if the costs to level and raid were not so high.

Deleted the game. 2 stars for the concept. Actually 5 for concept. But I’m stuck after one day of playing unless I spend money. Already getting raided and can’t get food. It’s too hard trying to get food and resources and waiting for energy and too frustrating don’t bother downloading. For anyone that wants alliances etc play war dragons its put together way better and cheaper and I never thought I’d say that. Very very disappointing game. -5 stars for the rest. DONT DOWNLOAD!

Game player. Not sure what the last reviewer wanted from a game , but I find it enjoyable and addictive, yes upgrades take a long time , yes you need to spend gems if your that way inclined, I haven’t bought any gems just accumulated through rewards , yes the way the tiles fall can be frustrating but I still come back and try to work out which hero’s suit different conditions. All in all a good time killer that takes time to build up a team to compete against higher grades.

Not worth it. You start off the game quick and strong, upgrading your troops fast and cheaply. Up until now the game is great and good fun, however, very quickly greedy developers want you to spend your own real money as upgrading becomes very expensive and takes a long time. Gameplay becomes extremely difficult and eventually simply isn’t worth it!! Progress in the game comes to a standstill and it is at this stage (a week into it for me) that you decide to write a review warning others. I can hon stay tell you don’t bother...it is one of those games where the only way to progress after reaching a certain point (once you have been hooked) is to spend your own hard earned dollars...what a waste!

A game for the rich or the patient. Nice game design, gets you hooked early for the first 5 or 6 levels, before things get harder and more time consuming. I’m enjoying it, but not expecting to finish this in a week, looks like it will take months to progress through all the levels. You can, of course, speed this process up by large injections of cash. EDIT: Many months later, I’m still hooked, but haven’t spent a cent. I’ll never get all the heroes, and may never finish all the building upgrades as they keep releasing more levels, but the good news is you don’t really need to. Still a fun game to kill some time.

Annoying. These constant updates are getting ridiculous! It’s as if I’m having to update twice a week now! Just a second ago I was MID GAME and it kicked me out forcing me to update. Also the levels are getting almost impossible to complete. It was fun at the beginning but now the developers are getting too greedy, thinking about the amount of money I’ve spent buying gems to upgrade hero’s is the only reason why I’m still playing, just so I can get my money’s worth. Next “update” message I receive I’m going to delete the app for good. What a shame 👎🏼

Paywall Scam. I have now had enough of this game and its cash grab scam. Yes the game is fun make absolutely no mistake, but don't be fooled as the fun doesn't last forever. I always throw some bucks at a free game if I enjoy it. So far I have thrown down $22 for absolutely nothing. I get it that the game becomes difficult at a certain point and there is your paywall, if you enjoy the game enough ”pay” a little to carry on, if not no probs, stop playing. But when you pay to unlock better characters to get you past this point only to find out its a chance like 1% of getting something useful I get angry at the developers greed. My $22 has literally got me the same nonsense you get for free!!! Like I say, good game, to a point.

Update problem. I’ve been enjoying the game for some time now but new update means I can’t get in game. Keeps saying “update” but fully updated? Pls fix this. Second time your update has kept me from logging in. Getting frustrated. It’s showing I need to update but fully updated, won’t let me get in game.

Great Game - At the beginning. A great game at the beginning, but unless you spend money, you will not progress. It’s almost like there is a logarithm in play - unless you pay, you will not advance, as you rarely get good hero’s above 3 Stars, and certain items like trapping tools, shield and hidden blades are very rarely found, therefore you can not ascend your hero. Best part is being in an alliance and you get to chat with people from around the world. Pity, as it is a good game.

Don’t ask questions. I was enjoying the game. I’ve spent a bit of money building up my account. Then I found a charge on my credit card that I didn’t remember making. I asked for information about the purchase and what I got back was a refund of $7.99. I didn’t ask for a refund. Then they charged me 2,000 gems which is worth a lot more than $7.99. I have two weeks to pay back the 2,000 gems or they will permanently suspend my account. Trying to reason with them is like talking to a robot. I doesn’t make any sense.

Pay or dont pay, your choice. The game is very, very addictive! It kind of becomes part of your life. Its fun, challenging and frustrating - thats how a game should be. There are times when you question the methods in the programming and debate about putting money into the game. You can play without paying any money. It will just take longer. You can play and pay to the tune of a couple of cups of coffee per month. Which is what i do. You can spend $000s on this game. Just like gambling. But that is always your choice. The game can still be played with no or pretty minimal financial inputs. And beating the Gravemaker in a raid is awesome.

Greedy developers. Decent game, love my alliance thats the only reason im still playing this game, however getting only 2 hero of the month and 1 monthly event challenge hero in over 2 1/2 years of playing is a joke, with over hundreds of $$$ spent, dont waste money on this game guys. Greedy developers I’ve done 4x over 40k gems and got absolutely nothing. This game is rigged, if you spend $$$ its program will not give anything so you spend more $$$. Odds are a joke, they say its based on luck, pppffftttttt right. Please explain how the people in diamond arena has so many Telluria. I’ve done over 35 pulls and got absolutely nothing but 3 star heros. Don’t waste your hard earn cash for this trash game ods.

Misleading. Pay to win expensive items and misleading offers

Terrible. You have to pay money if you want to be good at this game, I deleted it because I wanted a new account and it said if you delete the game you will loose your data, but when I deleted it and got it again it just had my horrible data from last time, DO NOT DOWNLOAD

Two thumbs down. What’s the point of having all of these powerful heroes of every time I spend my gems I get a hero of the same value. That aside, the game just isn’t fun.

THIS GAME IS A CHEAT. DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME !. If you don’t value your time or money then download this game. This is the most unbalanced game I’ve ever played. The whole game based on raising your team power number so your team becomes stronger and wins more battles right ? Wrong ! Your team power means nothing. It all depends on the stones you get. If you get good stones, you can beat an opponent with way bigger team power number then yours, or the opposite, with bad stone you can loose to someone with way less team power number. So all the time and money spent only for the sake of spending time and money. Does not reflect much on your game progression. If you spending money, trying to get 5star heroes, just so you know the chances of that approx. 1/10000. In the last several month I spent over $100 only getting 3star heroes. Not to mention that the algorithm of the game will let you progress only as much before crapping up your game. This game makes you spend money believing you are in control, where truly you just pay to observe RNG which your progress has no impact on. DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY. Skip this one, no doubt !

1% is a lie. I did 106 rolls to meet the 1% criteria and got nothing of the such. 300 dollars later and I sent a customer complaint asking them to honour their 1% claim and I was met with “Sorry to hear you don’t like our system and best of luck next time” Nothing at all for complaints, terrible customer service and a bunch of liars that do not honour their own claim of 1%. Obviously control their feedback as well no way a game that cares this little over their users could have such a high rating.

Empires and Puzzles is a ripoff!. I enjoyed this game at the beginning, I have been playing about a year and am embarrassed about how much I have spent and how little I’ve gotten for my money. If you like match games, go ahead and download this game, but my advice is don’t spend any extra money and if you do don’t expect much. Tavern of Legends is a joke, I did numerous summons only to get a boatload of of the weakest characters available and one that was mediocre that I already had several copies of. I’m actually planning on reducing my time with this game as it has been a huge disappointment. I’m in an alliance so I’ll help with titans but other than that I’ve pretty much had it. My advice save your time and save your money. Cheers.

Needs better internal marketing and balance. This game overloads on internal marketing all of the wrong type: spend cash for more. I think each time a new batch of heroes pops up everyone should get a token in their inbox that when used gives them a hero of that batch. People will be far more enticed to try to get heroes of that batch if they already have one, upfront, for free. Also improved balance is a must. Including lowering gem cost, etc.

Shameful. Game is a money grab. U get nothing from spending any money. Game is horrible. U have no chance of anything without spending money, and even then your chances are still low. Waste of time

Désappointé. Après plusieurs heures passées sur ce jeux et beaucoup d’argent investi, je me rends à la conclusion qu’il est pratiquement impossible d’obtenir des héros épiques (5 étoiles). Donc, ne vous faites pas prendre au piège et ne perdez pas votre temps avec ce jeux.

Was a good game.. Been forced to update and my iPad is old and I can't. So now I can't play without getting a new device.

Game of luck. Game makes you spend a lot of money to be good, it’s not a fair game and the game decided when you get good tiles and when you don’t. Nothing to do with puzzle. Just a money making scheme and game of probability. Don’t waste your time or money on the game

Pub. C’est trop charger de publicité et promo qui pollue l’écran. Ça manque de vision graphique. La solution c’est le jeu: War of Valhalla...identique avec moins de pub!

Major money grab. This game will rip you off on an extremely low chance of getting anything useful in return. Deleted my account after wasting a year of my life...

PAY TO PLAY. this game is so pay to play and it’s a shame that the creators of this game do such junk work to make this pay to play.

Rip off. This game is a money grab. Purchases charged that were never made and gems and loot tickets stolen when refund for purchase not made was requested.

Too bad for the lost account.... I loved this game. Enough to buy upgrades and a VIP status. And if only for the gameplay I would have given 5 stars. However, shortly after I had « secured » my account with game center, as recommended by the in game tutorial, When I opened a session I was back at level 1 with all progression and VIP status vanished... Tried support, but only got what looked like automated replies , and even though I sent my transaction IDs for my purchases, didn’t get back my account. So beware : by going through their help pages, it seems like lost accounts is not a rare issue, and unfortunately tech support is not much of a help. Spending a lot of money on that game may be risky ! Update : I did start Again the game and spent waaayyy too much money in the past two years... now I’ve just been banned for exploiting a bug in the game during 12h, like thousands of other players. E And P claim this is against their terms, but no mention of it in their conditions page. Do not play this game unless you’re willing to spend thousands of $ to stay competitive!

Waste of money. You purchase something and 6 months later they come back and tell you , oh we made a mistake and are changing the object that you purchased! We will give you something for your pain and suffering.. then proceed to reward everyone in the game although they never purchased said item. I felt like I bought a Jeep, they delivered me a Suzuki.. and then delivered everyone else one too, even though they never bought a Jeep! So basically the ones who pay are supplementing those who don’t.

Pay to play game.. Do no play this game worse game ever!!! there is no support and there’s no fun unless you’re a money payer, I actually paid money one time but apparently not enough.. This game in no way is good for you if you are not willing to pay, if you’re looking for a fun game that does not make you pay, do not play this game.

Organized crime. These game companies need to be wrangled in by legislation.they are out of control.this developer is arrogant. Robbing people of there money. If you are a gambler and want to give your money away get the game. Your money is better spent i Vegas better odds. They keep introducing more characters that you wont get unless you spend thousands. I have played for at least a year. Apple doesn’t give a crap as long as they are getting there cut.

Terrible Support. I was surprised how bad their support team is. I bought a team slot thinking it was adding a team member, the wording was poor. I immediately contacted the support team to reverse. 3 days later, after multiple back and forths, they inform me that they won’t do it. I had bought a VIP membership too and they didn’t care. Don’t spend in this game, they don’t care about you.

Mo money mo money mo money. To play this game u will never succeed unless you are a millionaire PERIOD.

Boycott this game by all means.. An incompetent programmer caused a glitch in the program and because some users found outabout it, they were harshly penalized. This game is all about money making.

创意不错,不过凑了300水晶就给一个三星,果断删. 创意不错,不过凑了300水晶就给一个三星,果断删

Not satisfied. The game is basically pay to win; those who pay for stuff get better stuff than others who work hard for it. Also, I suggest that you guys increase the power if some heroes such as Jabbar, since his special ability is around the same as Zudak and jabbar is a 4 star and Zudak is a 2 star. I am suggesting to increase Jabbar’s special ability damage form 235 to 250, 260, or 270 would be amazing. Doing so would make him more like a 4 star hero and not a copy of a 2 star hero but with epic status. And I don’t think it would be unbalanced doing so. Please take this idea into consideration.

Pay to win. This game sucks. Paid a crapload of money to have lvld up 5* heroes. Still can’t get decent boards EVER! I would quit playing LONG ago if it weren’t for how much money I’ve wasted on this stupid game.

I’m deleting your game. I want the devs, executive teams at Small Giant, and their parent company Zynga games to know that I’m deleting your game. This is the absolute worst case of unbalanced gameplay I have ever seen. Your excessive greed may be adored by your shareholders but the players you constantly screw are the ones who pay your exaggerated salaries. There is nothing rewarding about this game. Players can spend hundreds, even thousands of dollars and see little to no return. You. Are. Greedy. That’s the simplest way I can put it. Eventually more and more players will catch on and your user base will be reduced to a small handful of players that are willing to shell out the thousands of dollars it will take to get anywhere in this game. Unfortunately for you, the handful of players left won’t be enough to justify this game’s existence. I’m an advocate for no IAP games because of games like this. Your constant money grab has gone beyond encouraging players to spend a few dollars here and there to essentially forcing them to spend $30, $40, $50 dollars a month just to keep pace. Small Giant and Zynga might think it’s great to make the returns they are making, but their ethics and how they treat players is deplorable and untenable. No more IAP. I hope you take this review to heart. You know I’m right.

Gambling addiction BEWARE. Yes you can grind away at the game, but to really move forward most items are behind a paywall. 1% or less for good heroes. The gacha/loot box is everywhere. Technically all objects can be gotten by free to play but at such low drop rates, that the need to “keep up” sends you down into the gambling rabbit hole. Please be aware of your spending habits for these pixels you don’t own.

Just read this... Don’t spend on this game. Take it from me, and many others that have went (free to play) I’ve spent, but can tell you now that it’s not worth it. You don’t have to spend, but the game throws ads for summons at you like crazy. The devs come out with heroes, then the community complains that a certain hero is over powered, and so they end up nerfing a hero so bad, that they become worthless, and this is AFTER you’ve spend a few hundred bucks to try to get them. This game is fun, don’t take me wrong. The community as a whole is great. But when the whiners whine, the devs cater to them. The developers are very greedy.. There’s a reason they made millions. Good game overall, but as I stated.. keep your money in the bank. I’ve been playing this game for 3+ years now. I have 160 heroes maxed.. 43 5* and the rest are 3* and 4* (for tournaments and events) So if you’re looking to just have fun, play this game, but you can have fun without spending. If you want to spend a bit, may I suggest going with the VIP. That’s the only thing worth it.. A 1% chance to land a 5* legendary hero or even getting a HoTM (Hero of the Month) is tough. I noticed that if you’re new, your odds are better.. There’s no guarantee that spending will get you anything.. I think spending just speeds up your frustration, but what does a player of 3+ years know..? Don’t give SG any money.. they don’t do anything for you.. They’re happy to take it and cater to the whiners, but not to the people that actually spend and appreciate the players that brought them to where they are today..

Money Pit. This game takes your money and gives nothing in return. The chances of getting the best or rare heroes is way too low. You can spend a reasonable amount of money like I have and get absolutely nothing for it. You’re only chance to be able to advance in this game is to spend hundreds of dollars every month

Unbalanced. Wars and raid are incredibly poorly balanced. Dodges and resurrection are way to common for defence. Pricing is ridiculous. This is a pay to win game. Period.

Cheap and unbalanced!. The Raids were always cheap and unbalanced and the last update made us worst!!!! They keep taking my review down because they don’t want people to see negative reviews! Completely unfair!!!! Every update they make it even more cheap!!! Pure unfair garbage!!!!

Deceitful. Been playing almost 4 years and they are worse at listening to their players. They are just looking for money at all costs and treat loyal players terribly. If you want to lose a lot of money, play this game otherwise find a better game, there are a ton out there.

Not a fair game. It recently came out that boards are not random and there may be preferential treatment of beta testers. In my opinion this takes advantage of both the pay to play and non money spending players. This game is not far to all participants.

Do not spent money, you will regret it. I used to be a fan of this game, but after 2 years of play the game developers have lost my loyalty when they decided to reduced the power of things I spent money to get. They reduced the power not once, not twice, but three times now. Do not spend money on this game. You will pay for things that get changed on you.

Rigged. If you play this game you can put in a years worth of playing and not be hardly anywhere in the game. It’s Almost pointless to play. I’ve talked to other people who play the game and who have spent money on the game and they have not gotten rewarded even after spending their money. Go for a walk instead of playing

Empires and puzzles. Bad money pit. Only way to win is spend the odds of pulling good game play is less than 1%. Better odds would keep people interested

Whoooo. Well done *****

Marketing genius is a fail for me. I suppose it is marketing genius that this game has upped the characters levels, pretty much meaning spend more money. I have enjoyed playing this game for a few years and have spent way too much money on building characters and my empire. That being said, since they have changed things, I will probably still play the game but will never spend another dollar building my characters. Ever. Funny thing, if they hadn't changed things, I would still be sucked into dropping a lot of money on this game (for challenge events or deals) but after this marketing move, they lost me as a paying player. I wonder how many others feel the same way I do?

Too bad.... You really get to like this game, but must have alot of patience or invest alot of money...!! If you don’t pay the big bucks to upgrade it will take forever to have something somewhat decent... Too bad!

Great Idea Failed Excecution. The developers don’t understand balance and how to increase power creep. Having played the game religiously for three years and spending over 1000USD on the game I don’t expect to be lose to a newbie just because they have the new heroes who are still substantially lower level but so overpowered compared to older heroes that already took me money and time to get and level. So if you’re new, play for a bit until new heroes come out. Then you’re obsolete even if you spend money because it’s so expensive and hard to get the rare heroes. The worst part of the game by far is their PvP. Shame, I love the game play for the most part but it’s really not worth your time to play if you’re a serious gamer that expects fairness and the use of skill and strategy over luck and how deep your pockets are.

Meh. I hate and wasn’t interested in this game because it was a matching three game and I don’t like that and it was lagging a lot also was constantly asking on using money. -.-

Disappointing. This game used to be so much fun. Everyone had a chance and the game felt fair. Not anymore the game over powers some hero’s and even if you spend money to try to get pulls the chances are very slim. I think it’s time to move away from this game.

Cynical money grab devoid of artistic merit. For starters, there is nothing RPG-like about this game at all. You don’t make a character, you don’t interact with the story (such as it is), and can’t affect the outcome in any way. “Puzzles” is also a misnomer. There’s nothing to solve or figure out. Rather, the outcome of each interaction depends on only two things: the strength of your team and random chance. In reality, this isn’t a game at all. It’s a dressed up slot machine. The designers expect you to spend obscene amounts of money chasing after exceedingly rare prizes in order to “compete” with other players. To keep you spending, they continually publish over-powered content to obsolete the stuff you already bought. And make no mistake, chasing after the good stuff in this game costs hundreds or even thousands of dollars per month. You can’t tell exactly how much it will cost you because Small Giant isn’t upfront about the true costs of playing. Instead you pay for random pulls, with a very low chance of success. If you choose not to spend, then you can look forward to a long, grinding experience. It takes literally years to get anywhere, and you will never compete with the big spenders because Small Giant continually moves the goal posts by publishing new, more powerful content. In short, Empires and Puzzles is a cynically designed trap built to exploit gambling addicts. Don’t fall for it. Stay away.

Don’t expect to be respect. Basic good game, but no great evolution. They just want your money!

App Trap. This game is fun for the first 3 months. After that it is almost impossible to win unless you spend money. And they do a good job at trapping you into doing so. The will let you get to the point where you think your about to reach a higher level where the rewards are better and as soon as you are bout to reach you get sent back 2 steps. This gets repeated over and over and unless you spend money on higher level characters you will not succeed and get frustrated to the point where you either spend money on in game packs or you uninstall the game because it is frustrating. Even their matchmaking is set up that way, you get matched up with lower level players witch it says your odds of winning are great and you end up getting destroyed and end up wondering how you lost that battle. Fun game, but not if you want to keep playing par 4 or 5 months.

Tedious and repetitive ... and you can’t win without spending money. Just another gem matching game. The “battles” are repetitive and tiring. No special bonus gems as you advance in levels. The same monsters over and over again. A mind numbing game with lots of repetition. Did I mention how repetitive it is? Another problem is that you just cannot win without spending money. All currency is based on gems. It takes an insane amount of time to accumulate any amount that you can buy meaningful stuff.

Used to be good but now it’s just gross. Have played for three years and what once was a game that you could spend a moderate amount of money on and still have a great experience has turned into a game where the developer has it sights only on maximizing the amount of money they can extract from their players. New heroes are released at unreal speeds with massive power upgrades ensuring that if you don’t spend to pull these heroes your roster will never be able to do anything. Ascension materials that you used to be able to earn in game have been cut back to where you never expect to get any while the offers to buy these items at ridiculous prices has gone through the roof. Worst is that if there is a good hero that a lot of people spend money on and too many people get it they will nerf it into irrelevance despite the fact people paid good money for that hero. They take advantage of people who are addicted to this game and exploit peoples weakness. Look up gatcha games before you even think about this game and realize this company tries to exploit their player base.

Waste Of Time. This Game Is A Waste Of Time, Empire And Puzzles More Like Empires And Money! It’s Nearly Impossible To Play The Game Without Spending Money 💵 The Game Treats 5* Like 3* And The Events And Multiple Pulls Are Trash! The Game Is A Waste Of Time And Unfair Don’t Download It!!

Fun game but it’s a money grabber!!! BEWARE. Honestly I like this game but Small Gaint is getting greedy...players are spending money for almost nothing in return!!! Stop spending money on this game app until they show us some change in their gaming system!!!

The best. I adore this game. It is so addictive I keep it open almost constantly. Of course I think the alliance I belong to is the best. Shout out United. You will not be disappointed. It's free to play and it's not pushy about shoving ads in your face about gems constantly. Also there aren't ads for anyone else either. You can choose to watch one ad a day for some free items if you choose. Developers actually listen to the players about new updates. I can't say enough positive things about the game. I've read the negative review and it's my opinion they don't understand the gameplay and haven't taken the time to research or read the guide. PvP is not just about players power you also have to take into consideration abilities and ascention of other players. The game has an easy searchable forum if you are ever confused about gameplay as well as a you tube channel. It's super easy but also has depth if you want to dig in.

Long term player, disappointed in new direction. I’ve been playing this game since a month after it’s release. So, 2+ years. I’ve spent money, I have a decent team. But I’ve seen the devs add more and more ways to get you to spend Even more money. Loot has become increasingly lower, and good hero pulls less and less common. There are constantly ways to get you to spend. $3 here, $.99 here, $20 there, it’s annoying to have to click past five offers every time I start the game. The addition of a goblin crate is such crap with you having to pay $3.99 to unlock the junk loot they should give you for free. Or, you can trade in the good items for a bunch of junk food and iron. My food and iron are constantly full because I have nothing to spend it on anymore. The rewards are too low for someone who has their farms and storage maxed out. I can’t possibly craft or create enough to keep my banks from constantly being full . The ninja tower is stupid and a way to get you to waste all of your saved resources. I’ve been extremely disappointed in the way this game has been changing. It was fun, now it’s a greedy money trap.

Frustrating. While this game is free to play and you can enjoy yourself while doing so, it becomes abundantly clear that if you want to progress in any form of a timely manner you have to spend hundreds if not thousands to stay competitive and enjoy the fun things that come with winning. Otherwise if you are okay with extremely long wait times in every aspect of game and don’t mind losing a lot and don’t mind only getting a decent hero hardly ever let alone a way to level them up then you do you will be fine. I’ll be dead before I’m able to level the heroes I do have( most of them are 3* and 4*) and by then they will all be obsolete. Make sure you ask your loved ones to slip your device in your coffin just in case there is life after death so you have a chance of finishing up the heroes you do have.🙂PS, don’t chase heroes your just wasting your money with the rigged rng system.

Creating a new generation of gamblers. Keep kids off this game, it is too fun to spend money in this game. You don’t realize you’re gambling and getting addicted to it. I played it for three years and I eventually paid for a “pull” which landed me the best tank of the game. After 6 months leveling her, and paying for ascension items, she gets nerfed and a better one comes out. So... in general, you spin your wheels, never getting ahead. At least, at the casino, you keep your winnings. I would recommend reading the player forums before getting sucked in. The hero I’m talking about is Telluria, but in general, if you never pay for special heroes you will not make it on the leaderboard. Players at the top have defense teams with 4 pay to play heroes and maybe 1 that you can get without spending. Even if you do decide to spend, you are gambling to get heroes and people spend thousands to do so. The odds of winning are created by the software and not published which is illegal according to gambling laws in most sates. Users who have logged their winning have found a less than 5 percent chance of winning a 5 star hero when pulling. Buyer beware.

Fun and frustrating. Great game mechanics ruined by the fact the developer will make sure to stack boards and colors against you if they think you are progressing too fast. I would have spent more money in game, but you can’t beat a rigged system. Sad they do this to protect their casual gamers. It takes the fun out of this game when you lose due to rigging instead of being rewarded for your skill. It’s a lazy way to keep casuals relevant. Sad! Edit: All around, still the same. Manipulating win rates by controlling what color gems fall to either insure you do damage if you are due a win, or do not do damage if they decide you have been doing to well. This is such a lazy way to control gameplay. This game could be truly great if they would let it be truly random gem falls, instead of controlling ranking by manipulating when a user can do damage by not allowing a color to fall, therefore not letting a player do damage, ensuring the player a loss when the player is too high in the algorithm because you have ranked up faster than the lazy devs at Small Giant think you should.

Very awesome game, good developer team.. The game is a lot of fun and gets updated with cool stuff all the time. I don’t know of many games who have kept a following for such a long time. Good graphics, creative artwork, different events with different rules to always change things up. If you’re impatient AND hate to spend money, this game might not be for you. I’m pretty patient, and while I did spend money on the game a few years ago, I haven’t in a long time and I still enjoy the game. I remember playing for months without a 5 star, I was one of the ones who complained that so many others (who have played for years) have 5 star heroes. But I have since pulled the hero of the month/lucky additional draw twice. Good things come to those who wait. If you don’t want to wait, pay—but it’s still randomized, so don’t give into the gamblers fallacy (that the more you gamble, the better your odds become over time). Lastly, I gave this game a poor rating when I saw they put the Russian flag pin available in store (they change the flag pins in the store daily). Considering what’s happening in Ukraine, I gave them a bad rating for their horrible timing. They have since put an update no longer doing anything with Russia and Belarus—no advertising, selling, downloading, etc in Russia anymore. Good on you, Small Giant games.

Hard to move up.. Started this game because my ex wanted me To join. Realized shortly after joining that you have to play almost every day many times a day to gain enough to level up. Impossible to find 4-5 star hero’s and even more impossible to get troops at a decent star level. Most daily troops and hero’s are 1-3 stars. You call a hero rare but I get the same 2 star rare hero daily. I don’t have money to waste on a game to try to level. Would be nice if they could make it a little more achievable without having to put the money in. It’s not fun anymore when I log in and all my trophies are gone because my team isn’t up to par. I barely play now. Only hit the titan and do quests. Don’t even do normal levels. Takes too long to max out buildings as well. Nothing should be more than 3 days. Ads at the start of the game are out of control. The ads and icons around the game board for home base make it hard to see what you have and make it hard to move things around. Needs a lot of improvements when it comes to customization as well as layout.

Good game but.... I’ve been playing for well over a year. I don’t spend much on the game other than the vip pass which is like $4.99 a month. I get daily gems and 2 daily summons. The daily summons is laughable due to 99.9% of the time I get 2 one star heroes. 3 times in the year I got a three star that I have already. It took almost a year for me to draw my first five star hero. I have 3 now. I drew 2 and one came from my level 20 training camp. I have a pretty strong team now and am excited to keep growing stronger. I am busy and work crazy hours and I usually play daily but, I do have a life and I don’t always have time to log in and do much of anything. That does make it an issue with alliances. I decided to start my own and play by myself because I don’t care for the hardcore players giving me ultimatums. I enjoy playing at my own pace and learning as I go. I have had many enjoyable hours building my teams and my home base. I like that the game is growing. I hope for some new levels soon! I recommend the game if you have patience.

Good, but needs some changes. I rated this game four stars because after awhile you run out of energy so it’s hard to play the game because there’s nothing you can do. I’d say it would be GREAT if you added a way to maybe watch an add for more energy,food, or iron but I still love it and it’s addicting. Also maybe it should be able to pair you up with someone with a similar amount of power in raids. Sorry I forgot to mention that getting stuff after you run out maybe add a bonus round where you could maybe add stuff based on how good you do. And I got new troops and I was like “yes those look really good!” But instead they just liked different did they same damage and everything it sucked I was very sad I just wish you would add better troops it would really be appreciated. Anyways hope you read this and make some changes in the future have a great day, bye

A little too hard. I love the game. I’m addicted to it and I can’t stop playing it. But it’s the hero missings that bothers me. I don’t like how the monsters are able to miss a lot of the attacks from the heroes but the heroes can’t miss the attacks from the monsters that much. I don’t think it’s fair. Whenever this happens during fights, it makes me really mad and frustrated. Because of the monsters missing so much it takes a longer time to get past that level. And because of the heroes not being able to miss as much as the monsters do, they take so much damage and it costs me to lose the level so many times that it starts to get annoying. It always makes me mad and frustrated every time I lose a level due to the lack of being able to miss. Also some of the levels have to many attackers. It is too hard to pass those levels too. I am so frustrated and mad about these two things. There are other puzzle games that are not this difficult, so please fix these issues or I will delete this game, give this game a bad rating, and delete thus game and find a different puzzle game that is easier.

Good game, bad customer service. This is a great game and I’ll admit I have spent a bunch of money on it. Here’s where my problem comes in: There’s been three times that I remember where I’ve made back to back purchases, the last declines, so I add my PayPal to make that second purchase. It has taken money from my PayPal for the other purchases as well, and didn’t give me anything for that withdrawal. Recently I bought the $4.99 gems pack a few times, up to about $35 at that point, it withdrew the $35 from my card and my PayPal after I added PayPal to the payment options, but only gave me the gems for the first $35. I call Apple, get a refund for the $35 purchase since I only got the content for one of the $35 taken from me, come back to negative gems. I go to support for the app but just got an automated message telling me there’s negative gems because of a refund, just a vicious cycle. DON’T add secondary payment options or else you’ll be out some money😐

Tired of the game cheating. Apparently you can only leave one review ever? Alright, then the three-star one I gave it previously is now gone, then. Like the title says, I’m tired of the game cheating - ESPECIALLY in tournaments. More and more often, I’m noticing the game completely ignoring the score of the other team (usually lower than mine), ignoring type advantage, and just taking out huge chunks of my warriors’ health, no matter how hard they’re *supposed* to be hitting for, on a seemingly arbitrary basis. It’s not hard to figure out why: after four losses in a tournament, you can’t participate anymore… unless you spend 75 gems to wipe the slate clean. The more you lose, the more gems you have to spend, and you *will* blow through however many free gems you’ve accumulated before long. After that? If you want to keep playing, you have to start paying. And… I get it. I do. They have to make some money *somehow* to keep the game going. This just feels *very* disingenuous, and I may need to take a break from this game for a while, because after being on the receiving end of all this cheating, it’s just not *fun* anymore.

Used to be fun now P2P. This used to be a super fun game. I have been here since almost the beginning and was playing multiple times a day. Not spending money or just being a monthly subscriber was slow but still allowed chances to level and build great teams. But now with all the changes there is no way to level heroes or get good heroes without dumping a lot of money into the game. The boards are all rigged also if you want to stack any elements then you will not get those tiles or if you do they will be few and far between in your game boards. Instead it is rigged to give only the color or colors not needed. The map levels also change villains by what colors the heroes are and what you bring to the fight. These where minor annoyances in the past but in the upgrades they are constant and make playing useless anymore. Then there are the new heroes all the time but if you don’t get a new hero even when spending money you won’t be able to beat the new heroes. Bottom line, unless you are will to spend a few thousand without a guarantee to get good heroes and equipment don’t even bother downloading.

Pay LOTS to win. The game itself is fun at the start. There is a lot to do and it keeps you busy. The cost of the main resource, gems, is reasonable and you can subscribe for benefits. But after a few months you realize that the rate of reward is a borderline scam. I have spent hundreds of gems in an attempt to get the best heroes, or the limited time heroes, and inevitably, you end up with low ranked rewards or duplicates. I have gotten my most powerful hero 4 times. And when there is a special event, you spend extra gems to try to get the new heroes, but get the same duplicates you paid much less for before. And the rare items needed to advance your hero into the highest power levels are so rare that my characters have been capped for months. Of course, you can spend hundreds of gems on “deals” that give you a chance to win them, but in all likelihood will give you a lesser item you already have little use for. I went from believing this was the most cost effective game to realizing it is a total money grubbing scam. Of course, you don’t have to spend money. Just don’t expect to compete or get cool stuff if you don’t. My wife and I realized this after several months of subscribing. Guess we got suckered.

Dont waste your time or money. I have given this game the benefit of the doubt for way too long. Whether you spend money or not makes no difference. I can’t believe how much money players have wasted to try to obtain five star heroes. I have been playing for over 3 years and do not have a single five star hero. After 2 years, I finally started to receive some four star heroes when summoning. However 99% of the time they are single or two stars and most are repeats. The wars are a waste of time, most matchups are a joke. Power levels of teams are so far apart there is no reason to battle because it is always a complete blowout. Trophies are not consistent with efforts. It takes years to upgrade any building to anything worth having. How can a team with 1200 strength raid and beat a team whose strength is over 3000…..huh So many aspects of this game do not make sense. Game showed a lot of promise at the start…..but after so long, still has not delivered. Note to developers, one of the basic aspects of gaming is that it should be fun…try playing your own game and see if “fun” is a word that comes to mind…go ahead, ill wait…

Holy freaking paywall, Batman!. This game is seriously fun and addicting, but crazy expensive. Gems don’t seem too expensive at first, but everything costs gems. And at higher levels, tons of them. You want to fill your play meter? 100 gems. You need meat to level up your characters. 389 gems. Outta metal to build? 100+ gems. You wanna summon a random character in a gamble? 180 gems. Oh, and if you take your sweet time leveling your character, you come back to having been “raided” by people who vastly outrank you, who you have zero chance of beating. If you wanna raid, it “matches you” with people that are “in your range”. If they really outrank you, and you want to look for a different match? You guessed it! Gems. Level with any sort of speed with the faint hope of keeping up with other players or being able to win raids? Open up your wallet baby. It’s beautiful, it’s fun, but you’re looking at $100s to keep up. And the wording on some of the loot boxes is cleverly ambiguous. Read carefully before purchasing.

It’s OK. This game can be pretty addicting. It’s a build your own empire game that effects your production. You can also join guilds to fight super strong titans. So the more in your guild the better. You also need a guild to go to wars with other guilds. You might find yourself playing and getting really good items at the beginning of the game but, it slows down and the opportunity to ascend heros to higher stars are made very difficult. I suspect that the people who made the game boards those items for themselves. I paid for some gems but, it’s such a waste of money for crappy rewards. The other big downside is the PvP it is so off on some weeks that you maybe getting really good and fighting a range of players and winning to getting beat against players with 200+ power totals less than your own. It’s like the developers flips a switch every so often and it doesn’t seem like there is a good constant algorithm that is fair. If I could rate this game a little less then I would.

Love the Game, Hate the Odds. So I want to start off by saying the game itself is great. There is always something to do, from progressing through the story, to performing raids, expanding your base, joining an alliance and fighting titans, to participating in alliance wars. And if you want to get more heroes, you can train or test your luck with the hero summon. Now, to the part I dislike, the odds accompanying the hero summon are ridiculous. I get making the 5 star heroes rare, but a bit higher than 1% chance of getting it. Still, its all seemingly dependent on luck. And when doing the epic hero summon, there are so many three star heroes to get, but somehow, the common ones such as Bane always appear. I feel that even making it slightly easier to get four or five stars and add more heroes to have the chance to get a larger variety would be great! As I’m saying again, the game is WONDERFUL, but the odds that come with the summon are terrible, and ruin an aspect of the game for me and many others.

Awesome Game. I have been playing this game for almost a year and a half. In that timespan, this game has continued to evolve - Raid tournaments, season 2 (Atlantis),more quests and heroes, more stronghold levels and corresponding buildings. The game constantly keeps you entertained. It can be difficult and requires trial and error with the composition of your team. However, anyone that says you NEED to pay to win is mistaken. Changing the combinations of your teams makes all the difference. This will help you defeat stronger titans, do better in raid tournaments and wars, and advance through the story mode faster. These events is directly responsible for your ability to collect ascension items. Ascension items are not common and can be challenging - but that’s how it should be. If it was easy to get items needed the game would get quite boring. It’s not and I don’t intend on stopping any time soon, especially with teasers about a season 3 coming soon!

Money wasted. I give this a 1 star because I don’t understand how I can spend so much money just for you to keep summoning Ganju and Firar Tuck. That’s ridiculous. If I spend money I deserve better players but no matter how many gems I buy I don’t get good summons. So I won’t spend my money on gems for summons. I’ll just use it for world energy since this game doesn’t use a fair algorithm for players. And I’ve been playin for over a year so it’s really not fair I’m spending and getting stuck with wack people over and over and over. I left the game for a few months because of this and I’m debating doing this again. I’ve never spent so much money just got the game to screw me and continuously show me its a waste. I get it’s random but you have to see that I’m spending money to get the same people. I wanted a good Holy a month ago summoned Ganju 4 times in a row. Come on. And right after spending $10 on gems. My friend on the other hand summons Thorne and great characters and he spends less and has been playing less time. But it’s screw me right? And today I summon for a good yellow, after spending, and what do I get? Ganju! One star for being a game that doesn’t make me spending money here worth it.

Fun but Annoying. It's very hard to get things you need. I almost always have a surplus of food, or I don't have any. And the game always gives you more iron than food, even though you need food for almost everything. It would be nice if we could trade things, for free or for a small price of gems, if they must. Someone in my alliance got a 4-star hero they already had, and the hero they already had was on the talent grid. It would be really nice if we could trade heroes and crafting/training/leveling up items, or even emblems. I only have one hero on the talent grid, but I have so many emblems for every other class. If we can't trade, it would be nice to have a conversion system, so we could convert iron to food (and vice versa), emblems to emblems for other classes, battle items for other battle items, crafting/training/leveling up items for other ones, and troops and heroes to a random troop or hero of the same star level but another color.

PvP system is frustrating. The game overall is decent. I like the building and collecting resources and progressing through the campaign world. The system is set up so you have team power that should be a gauge to how easy or hard fighting another player will be or certain quests should be in relation to your team. This is where it falls short and is terrible and frustrating. In PvP you can see what your opponents team power is in relation to yours and combat should be based on that. It isn’t!!. The developers decided to make team power irrelevant. When combating another player who should be relatively easy because their power is significantly lower then yours still somehow destroys you. Even the team you have for some reason doesn’t increase in their special abilities like I. The campaign by your opponent seems to always get their special abilities. It’s incredibly frustrating and it’s like the developers just made it this way to make you want to buy things in game to get stronger part members. So even if you have a higher team power you can still be totally annihilated by a much weaker player. It’s ridiculous. I deleted the game!! Don’t bother with this game.

Money Drainer. So I really love this game but you have to spend a lot of money to advance at a quick pace. If you will be a F2P (Free to play) it will take you a few years to get a legit team together. I was a F2P player at first but started paying for stuff recently. I have been playing this game for over 3 years & I wanna say I’m close to spending $1,000 in this game. The sad part is that SG/Zynga wants you to keep spending money because this game is like a casino. Just last night I spent $55 on the Solstice summons & only got last months hero of the month. Not even a featured or this months hero of the month. It is so disappointing to spend big loads of money & SG/Zynga not being considerate of that. They need to change this because this will be the last time I spend money on this game. This game is meant for people with money. Because if you’re F2P you will end up quitting the game because it takes too long to reach your goal. I will continue to play this game but I am done spending money & for that reason that why I give it 3 stars.

Great game went Pay to Play. I’ve been playing the game for several years, and enjoyed it very much. That said, unless you have the means to support quick collection of the newest strongest heroes (and depth beyond that) don't bother…you won’t be competitive at the core of the game which are the events, and Raids/War portion of the game. There is a glut of new heroes being introduced and they're much stronger than the common originals. it’s become difficult to compete, even for those of us who’ve been playing for years, invested a bit to build strength and depth in our rosters. New players to the game will not fare well beyond the AI map stages unless they're willing and able to consistently PAY for the chance to acquire strong enough heroes to compete. There are plenty of maps and quests to play vs the AI, and frequent event offering greater rewards. One of the latest events was Magic Tower in which the top 3rd was hidden behind a PAY WALL of in game currency…the first such PAY TO PLAY event in the life of the game. That pretty well sums up what this once great game has become, PAY TO PLAY.

Special Heroes pull. Usually, I rate this game a 4 or 5 when they ask for reviews, but this time I’m giving them a 3 because when there is a special hero pull like “circus”, underwild, etc. I seem to get heroes pulled that have nothing to do with the special theme! I waste gems hoping I would get a special character, but then get a regular hero that I can get from a regular pull category, let alone getting ones I’ve had already. I’m sick and tired of investing my real money into a game that doesn’t do ke justice. I would walk away, but I have friends in the group that are awesome. 6 Feb 2022. I would like to add that there is a glitch because when I used 3 heroes of the same element in a raid and won (twice), the Path of Valor didn’t update to give me that finished task. What’s up with that? And in my previous review, am STILL getting heroes that have nothing to do with the special pull groups. Give me the heroes from the special groups. I worked hard to get those tokens

No good loot after a certain point. I been playing this game for a while now. I thought it was the coolest game ever when I first started. A puzzle game combined with an RPG fighting game is brilliant. How now that I reached a certain level in the game I am really stuck at this level because I can’t Ascend my hero’s to the next level so I may keep upgrading them due to lack of resources. The same says these resources can be found by doing certain events however I had participated in many of those events for months now and all I get is the same loot drops. I understand the developers don’t want to be an easy game however it shouldn’t be completely impossible as well. Oh and like many other views on here I found the game offers a small fraction of the resources required as a bundle with other items you can get easily for a hefty price of real world cash. So maybe that’s their angle. I would give this game 4 or 5 stars once they correct the lack of resources drop in the game, or just make an happy hour weekly or daily that you have a guarantee chance of getting the resources need to upgrade hero and troops.

In between. This is a great game for downtime and when you are bored. There’s lots to do on here. However, there are glitches as well. I just literally got done playing a war of mine. Got my team all set up and was on the way to fight the opposing team. However, when my team got there, it informed me that it was an unknown target and took my flag as if I went to war. I would kindly like that back....thanks. Other things to be aware of as well, is that the game seems to cheat both in war, quests, and with the Titan. This is only at most times tho. Some of the boards are complete crap at times. Especially with the Titan and War. I think that the war isn’t giving a fighting chance. If field is going to be involved, I think that both teams should have it at the exact same time that we go to war. The list goes on with what could be fixed, but I’ll leave it at that for now. Signed, Someone who pays a fortune on your game and will one day be divorced from all the money spent 🤦🏼‍♀️

New building for the game. I think one new building you could create for the game is a building called “The Trading Post”.. Building it would give you the ability to trade items with other members of your Alliance.. The higher you upgraded the building the rarer the items you could trade.. Both members would have to have a building at that level you want to trade.. Say for example: At Lvl 9 of the building you could trade 3 star materials like Trap Tools or Warm Capes.. Both members would have to have at least a Lvl 9 Trading Post to trade those items.. And at Lvl 10 you could trade 4 star materials like Mystic Rings or Royal Tabards.. Being able to trade within an Alliance would encourage more people to join one.. You could put high costs to do it & waiting times but at least a player would know they get one at the end of waiting.. I think something like that would be GREAT for the game!!

One Glaring and Horribly Obnoxious Flaw. My wife and I have been playing this game for some time now. Overall, it’s a polished and fun game to play. However, with success it seems the developers have chosen to sacrifice customer experience (generating a healthy income stream) for “a few dollars more.” The game features pop up ads which are annoying enough and clutters the game screen with the exact same ads so that is obnoxiously annoying to simply navigate through your base. While I understand their desire for riches, I fail to see how they’re willing to sabotage user, which is to say paying customer experience for a chance at even more money. My wife and I don’t mind buying items particularly for a well designed and fun game. This has, however, gotten ridiculous. Flooding the game screen with the same ads your force players to endure at startup while hindering playability with these same as keeps this game from a higher rating.

Great game, but has serious bugs. This is definitely my favorite mobile game. Rich gameplay, nice graphics and fun cooperative. Unfortunately, however, the game has several very annoying bugs. First, it crashes every time I play it. This is devastating since the resources you spend going into battle, especially wars, are lost. The crashes seem to happen randomly, so it always puts me on edge waiting for the worst. Also, related, if your internet connection goes down for a few seconds, you get booted from the game and again lose any resources you used for the battle. This is really not fair. Another bug that fairly frequently is that enemies can survive one turn with zero health. And lastly, the randomness seems biased or something. Many times enemies with as low as an 18% chance of revive will revive 2-3 times in a row. Just beware, while a very fun game, it’s hampered by some serious bugs that make for an extremely frustrating experience at times.

Addicted - However, I’m with the majority. Love the game; however, the fact that you can only upgrade one building at a time, unless you invest cash (and then it’s only 2 at a time with no time or cost difference), the tremendous amount of resources and time required to advance anything and everything, and then the ridiculously hard challenges that you will never pass if you don’t have special items crafted for (& plenty of them) - it all makes it seem as though the game was designed to get you to spend and keep spending money. Because trust me, just investing a few dollars here and there would not help you in this one. I’ve played games where it would/did; this is not one of those games; this is spend, and continue to spend if you want to continue to advance at a decent pace. If you don’t mind playing the same boards over and over to earn the required supplies, while building up your base and heroes, which I’m fine with, then settle in. Make sure you choose a great alliance like I did, chatting with your family can help pass the time and if it’s a good one, they will give you pointers. Sorry mine is all full :) Good luck

Painful pleasure. This game is incredible, i barely have 1 5 star hero but I still love the game. A lot of people are leaving reviews saying “5 star heroes are too rare” or “ epic ascension items are too rare” but you don’t really need them until you are far in the game. If you play your cards right and you get the right setup, you can do just fine with only 4 star heroes and I have actually seen somebody in the top ten leaderboard that had a 3 star in their defense team. If you lose your temper easily this is not the game for you. It takes a long time to get the things that you want and some levels are incredibly challenging and I have even wanted to rage quit before. If you are patient and want a game that you can play daily then this is the game for you. Heck, you can even choose not to attack titans or anything as long as you choose the right alliance. 9/10 would recommend.

Bad chests rewards. Ultimately I really loved this game. Regardless of the money pushing they do to grow your team. I’m ok with playing the long game and have been for years. However the updates done to the game have made it almost impossible to earn ascension items to grow your heroes. It dontes make sense I can repeatedly score in class A on titans and never get an ascension item for my 4* or 5* heroes. Not even the titan chest gives you ascension items even when your top tier. It continues to be so unlikely to get the items needed what’s the point anymore. I’m finding it hard to stay positive in my alliance when others complain when I know it didn’t used to be so disappointing. We literally had people quitting because the rewards have dropped so dramatically that unless your training 3* heroes only you could play for almost a year and not get the items needed to ascend a hero. That needs to be adjusted. There’s a lot of dedicated players and this game promotes team building. We already accepted all the trading course with “chances” of epic or legendary or slim but payouts on titans and reward chest should actually help you play game!

This game is rigged. So i’ve been paying attention for a long time now, this game encourage people to buy and spend more money unnecessary, they will match you with weak people but then “randomly” place your element jewels that other team is strong against, even if you reroll and pick the weaker ones, you still lose since you will end up building mana for weaker team to wipe out one by one. The stronger elements barely appear. Most people are competitive, and think their teams are weak but the truth is the game makes you lose against AI so you can buy more. Have you ever seen that randomly you can win much stronger team by oooh combo with matching jewels everywhere, and then boom lost 50 points where you find no jewels to match at all and keep building their mana the entire match. This is only happens in raid and not war. There is a time you can see damage increase or decrease, even your mana gain becomes faster if the game wants you to win, if not the other team just again “randomly” target your main character (when points win are around 40ish). This is not random, this is pre coded to make you become competitive and spend more. This has been my observation and experiences so far.

A puzzle game built around loot boxes. At first I really enjoyed this game. It’s an entertaining variant on the classic “candy crush” gameplay where you get to defeat monsters and enemies. Daily challenges and building your city keep you coming back day after day. If you are patient, you don’t even need to spend cash on this game. But after awhile it becomes apparent that they based this entire game around loot boxes. When you train or summon new heroes, the game mechanism makes it random, with only a very small chance of resulting in one of the top-tier heroes. Of course, you can always spend money to get extra loot-box chances, and when you open the app, there are 4 or 5 pop up ads to remind you of that. But I have played this game near-daily for 8 months, spending a little cash here and there, and fully upgraded my city, and I still have not received a top-tier 5-star hero. This limits how far I can progress in the game. This is a game that rewards you more for spending money than it does for playing loyally. And you will need to spend a LOT of money.

Fun, predictable, play at your own pace. This is def another 3-match game but the graphics are outstanding. I’ve been playing a few years now and, while they’ve had several bugs (a few really big ones), they eventually get ironed out. After a while you might get tired of the same old match game but there’s enough variety here to keep things interesting. I stopped doing the map quest - because it’s boring - but the battles & matches with other (real) players teams are fun & challenging. I would, overall, recommend this game, even if you don’t buy anything (be prepared to wait a long time to level up if you don’t). UPDATE: it’s DEF getting more expensive to play - to the point of it not being fun anymore. *COUGH* You can play for free, as the developer states, over and over, but it just takes so long to get anywhere. I understand they need to make money to keep things running, but it’s getting pretty ridiculous. Anything over a few bucks, esp in todays economy, isn’t worth it. I’m lowering my rating.

Such a great game.. So first of all, I’m not a gamer really. I also have never played any fantasy games, but I LOVE THIS GAME. I love this game so much that I was even enticed to pay for some of their packs, which I think are good deals in and of themselves. I have been playing for about 3 months now and for a long time, I played only with what I could earn through the game and I leveled up pretty well, the packs were just a perk I gave myself after a while. They are always changing things up, and there is always so much to do within the game. Best of all, it is a thinking game. There is a lot of strategy within the game, both against the game, and other players. I think my only real criticism would be the forever waiting times as you level up your stronghold, iron storages, etc. Other than that, I just think it is a really well designed game, it keeps you engaged, and its a lot of fun.

BEST GAME EVER. I previously wrote a bad review on this game, but I had to update it. This game is amazing. I truly must say this is the best, and most rewarding game I’ve ever played. All I can recommend is patience. Yes there are quirks to this game, sometimes the raids aren’t fair, sometimes the summoning isn’t fair, but trust me when I say it will all even out. They’ve really upped there customer service also. If your writing in to ask a question and not asking for your gems or money back, you will be taken care of. Again I must stress that on this game you win some and you lose some. I’ve spent alotta money on this game. And that is 100% by choice. This is NOT a pay to play game. It’s just gonna take longer to get the hero’s you want and level up etc. Give this game a chance and I promise it will reward you, and give you unbelievable satisfaction. GET THIS GAME NOW!!! There isn’t a better one in this genre, period. Thank you to the amazing staff, and for being a game that actually listens to its players. THANK YOU GIANT GAMES!!!!

Been Playing For Years but lately I….. Have noticed a huge change in the balance of the game. Really completely OFF. My husband as well….for example, I’m currently at a 5000+ team, but cannot get over 2500 trophies without being raided by much weaker teams like 4200 power. Furthermore, if you are retaliating to regain your trophies back, get ready to be frustrated because the tiles do NOT fall in your favor. You will get every single combo but the one you need. This is also quite evident with Titans as well. It doesn’t matter how much you spend, you will still be on the losing end so you can spend more. Come on developers! I know you have to make a profit, but let’s not be so greedy! I used to really love this game, but lately, not so much…..I have pulled back significantly on my wasting time and money on this game. I don’t like cheaters and almost always feeling like I am at a disadvantage. BUMMER! Put the algorithms back! I want to quit more than I enjoy this game. Also, it now requires A LOT more heroes to level up your five star heroes, so you need to spend more…..BOO!

It is what is but can be fun at s risk. Let’s face it, the reviews you see about people complaining about all the money spent are 100% true!!! You can play this game without spending tons of money but it might get tedious and boring. You can also drop loads of cash and still hit s brick wall because you don’t have rare items to level your heroes with. The money complaint is ridiculous because most of the interactive games cost money to play now. Yes, we’re all fools for paying so much to play the same games o we and over. I’ve been playing this game for almost 300 days now and I like it. It isn’t as stressful as games like GOW where it’s all about spending. As I stated earlier, you can play with small amounts spent or none at all but it might bore you. Join an alliance and play twice a day and you will level up but not as fast as some who spend. The big complaint is that you can’t trade items in your alliance to other, you can’t trade or buy needed items (which I understand the buying part because that can make the game turn into a pay to play), but at least you should be able to trade the awarded items for ones you need. I have 20 worm capes and need 1 hidden dagger. I’ll give up 10 of those capes for this item but I can’t. That is fair so players can grow. You also can’t do some of the basic chat groups or copy and paste as in other games. Overall, fun game that takes time but it won’t cost you an arm and a leg unless you want to spend it.

The odds are NOT in your favor. Let me start by saying that I enjoy this game very much and have played it for the last couple months. I am at a point now where I need 4 and 5 star hero’s to progress any further. Within the game you can be awarded tokens for a chance to draw these level characters. Within the last week I’ve had no less than 6 special tokens and just now 2 draws for Legendary hero’s and all my efforts have yielded nothing of note. I have made in app purchases of the game but refuse to buy my way to higher levels. I’m stuck playing the same maps over and over again and even within my Alliance our War Chests and Titan kills yield so little for advancement (Ascension materials) as to make the effort not worthwhile. The game is rigged against you and I wish the Devs would even the odds. I don’t mind putting time in but when you keep striking out I start to wonder if there is another game that is worth my time and money. Make the odds fair and this is a great game.

A great game being ruined by updates.. This is a great game. I love the clans and the raids and the wars and the quests and the town that is continuously being upgraded. But what halts me from declaring this a god-tier game is the updates. The game makers continue to ruin the game with things like battle bonuses for the defenses in war and terrible battle boards. When you should clearly win in a regular fight the puzzle works against you. When you double up a color it makes that color scarce in the boards so as to not give you the advantage you desired. The latest war bonuses was fast mana. What a mean trick. Almost makes me want to quit a game I have been playing for over four years... the opposing team gets more mana per turn than you do and creates a no win situation for a team that normally would have a chance at winning. Even when your team is clearly stronger. Trash. I have spent hundreds on this game over the last four years... developers: you need a way for PCs to give feedback in the game. ~brakenb~

Great but...... I love the game I hope the creators see this review because they did a fantastic job on this game and I have the same complaints as the other reviews. The raids are very challenging once you get so far and you have to spend a bunch of your food just to get to fight a level that’s a little lower you know you might have a chance at. If they were a way that they could bring down the size gap in raids and I mean if you go over 3000 hp doesn’t meant you should go against ppl that are 3800. Same goes for the other way. 2400 shouldn’t be playing a 3000 hp player. Not fair. Oh and one more thing THE LOOT YOU RECEIVE from titans and wars and such lately has been very limited on anything decent and the scene a hero you need certain things and those are just impossible to get and I have spent over 60-70 bucks on this game and don’t have anything to really show for it. The game though is right as rain just needs some fine tuning on things is all.

Addictive game. I’ve been playing E&P for a couple months now and let me say it is extremely addictive. It’s super fun and everyone that I’ve run into has been nice and helpful. With that being said I have a few problems with the game. I feel like it is to hard to grow past a certain point. I currently have a team of 3 3 star heroes and 2 4 star heroes. I have my training ground going pretty consistently and I’m only getting more 3 star heroes. I have saved up 300 gems twice to do the elemental summons which both resulted in 3 star heroes. I feel like if I spend the time and effort to save up 300 gems I should be guaranteed a 4 star hero with a chance at a 5 star hero. Keep in mind even with doing all the daily chests and free video I usually get around 10 gems a day so it takes forever to save up just to waste it on a 5ish % chance at a 4* hero. Another issue I have is the titans not taking up the whole area. Why can’t the titans be able to take damage from all lanes? It’s a lot of wasted damage. P.s. Please optimize the game for iPhone X.

Great game, builds patience. First off- no need to spend any money. It takes time. I’ve played for more than six months and now finally starting to get a really strong team. The game will give you the items you need in time. You have to play as often as the world energy allows. The more you play the more you get. It definitely helps with practicing your patience. You can’t grow a strong team overnight it takes months. It is fun and you meet people from all over through your “alliance”. I got hooked on this after my hubby started playing, I joined a good alliance and had the husband dump his alliance to join mine. Then I got my kids involved too and now we’re all fighting in the same alliance and it’s awesome. If you have money to burn, sure you will get there faster but even if you don’t pay a dime you will get to your 4 star and 5 star characters in time. It’s awesome, give it a try!

Sure, I’ll leave a review.. This Atlantis thing you’ve got going on, brilliant. You made sure that you can get 97 of those coins so that you’d have to beat at least 1 level on hard to get a character. Cool. Except for the moth on the last wave of the FIRST level. He’s OP. And unless I’ve already spent a bunch of money getting other characters there’s no way on Earth I’m beating this fella. I spent 175 gems to keep fighting, thinking that maybe it would be enough. It wasn’t. He can take out an entire crew. Just 5 turns. Unfortunately he had about 25% health. Which meant he could wreck twice in a row and still have 20% health. It’s a nice mix between “very clever way of getting people to spend money” and “good lord I have to delete this because I’m not adding it to my list of bills”. Thanks for the short ride. My dreams of having at least one character that wasn’t run-of-the-mill have been shattered and I’d rather just play sudoku now anyways. Sustainability is key. But by all means, swipe as much money from the people who can afford it and just start a new game once this one’s done. - Average person

This page contains false and deceptive advertising!. This is not, I repeat NOT, a strategy game. You have no control over boards which are entirely randomized to create as difficult a possibility on the attacker (player) as possible. Your “Defensive” team is entirely AI controlled, and is designed to attack and raise mana continuously throughout the match, while the player is beholden to hoping for a lucky board. Secondly, to gain “legendary” heroes to make you barely competitive in game, you get a 1.7% chance per summon to draw one; meaning you could spend $100 in one drop and draw all 3 stars with no increased chance of 5 star heroes. After testing this, we have found you might as well be serious enough to spend a small fortune if you want to enjoy this game. You are excessively bombed by idiotic ads for spending money on the game; even more idiotic tournaments, and repetitive boring events. Bugs are a major issue, check the game forums. This is not a good game. If you have a lot of money and need a place to waste it, jump in am enjoying being lied to. This if you are like the rest of us; you are better off moving away from it.

Empires & Puzzles. Do not get this game. It’s horribly unbalanced and sneakily deceptive in its game play. At first, it starts out fun and enjoyable. Then you hit a wall. A wall placed there so you have to try and spend money to get further along. The problem? The gambling system is terribly awful and works against you. The chance to get decent heroes is abysmally small and in order to upgrade them to the fullest, you’ll need to wait for drops from Titan creatures. You can only engage these creatures if you are in a guild. On top of that, you’ll need to wait and pray that your guild-mates attack it/ kill it. The item drops are still subjective to a crap gambling system. So you’ll not lucky get the items needed to upgrade your deck. Also, the Raid system is horrid. This is the process in which you attack other players decks. The Raid teams don’t follow the same mechanics as your team does. The AI attacks you at will after so many turns. Attacking them builds their mana bar and they will obliterate you with special attacks. You only build mana by completing combos. Which is the only way to win, so facing a team much weaker than yours can still mean defeat if your rolling bad luck.

A few problems. 1.) first of all and probably the biggest is not being able to destroy or delete your buildings for the fortress 1 misclick and that spot is taken forever 2.) I’m pretty sure y’all do this in purpose, but the thing is, is that the multiplayer system is pretty bad. I’ll be a level 7(which I am at the moment i think) and when other to fight other people I’ll only find people who have troops who are all super high level with the troops being at least 3 star(note most of my troops are 2 star and the highest level I have on one is 13 not even ascended, so yeah I don’t know what y’all are doing, but fix it, and the next thing isn’t really a problem a fact, this game is a bit to much pay to win(by a bit I mean a lot) it you had enough money you could have a max level fortress with max level hero’s and troops within a hour or day, but what’s good is that this isn’t a game that sets a limiter of how far you can go without money(I don’t spend money) but this is a four star on a gameplay standpoint

Blatant money grabber. These developers are master class. It’s fun and addictive...at first. Honestly you won’t be able to put it down. It’s a well thought out rouse to get you hooked and then you’ll eventually reach a point where you can’t advance without paying. I’m not jaded and venting because I’ve spent a bunch of money and now regretting it. I’m actually impressed with how they did this. Listen folks. I have spent hundreds of dollars on this game. And I know what your thinking. But no, I’m not just venting. I don’t mind spending the money. It was entertaining and I had my fun. But really people, there’s no end to it. The money only buys you so much game play ability and then you’ll have to pay more to advance again. I was heart broken to read reviews about people who finally got a 4 star warrior. I have 5 teams all made up of 4 and 5 star warriors and I literally can’t finish the first story. I invite any developers reading this to look at my game profile and tell me And everyone else that I’m lying. If you are a person of means and can afford to spend the money, than feel free to do so. But be warned, spending that money will only get you to the next step. Rest assured, you’ll need to spend more to see what comes next.
