birbitto - Fair and unique
I went in to SoS with indifferent and honestly low expectations. The ads I’ve seen don’t do it justice though I know it’s a hard genre to advertise. I really like the multiple things you can do instead of just managing your settlement. I think the little exploration tasks and survival challenges really add flavor to it and are pretty fun. The in game transactions are honestly fair priced and you still get a lot of biocaps for completing missions so unless you have something specific in mind you might not even need to buy to progress. I like the multiple chiefs and their different combat abilities too. I think the events are pretty neat. The dailys are really beneficial too. If I had any criticism it’d be that it might be nice to have troops linger in the battlefield instead of completely returning. It can be a little cumbersome to have two intel missions right next to each other, 80km out, and have to wait 3 minutes for them to come back to send them out again. Though it’s entirely possible I’ve missed something. All in all, I’m having fun with it. Being in an alliance actually feels helpful for timers and such when in other games I’ve barely noticed their assistance. For reference for where I’m at in the game — I’m upgrading my HQ to 18 and I’ve been playing religiously for a week.
lackofcoin - Game dictate your life.
If you’re looking for a game that will pretty much take over your whole life you have found the right one. If you’re trying to enjoy a holiday with your family, know that this game will plan an event to interfere. If you choose your family over your game, you may come back to your village being zeroed. Such as what happened to me. You spent a lot of money and time building things up, and really don’t know the rules or how to get certain things even after six months of playing, this game still leaves a mystery. You find you’re doing things wrong which cost you a lot of time and then find others that know what they’re doing but won’t share that information with you even though they’re on the same team as you. They will take you and lead you into battles and won’t explain things to you and then they end up getting you in trouble because you don’t know what you’re doing. Some of your leaders will badmouth other teams which will cause the other teams to come after everybody in the group, not just the one that’s doing the bad mouthing so pick your alliance wisely. Streamers are there to take even more money from you. After awhile the game gets repetitive and you need to set an alarm for them. Make sure you are playing the time zone as most of your alliance or you will be left out of many good events. Plan to rack up $1000 on your credit card yearly. I did and I am frugal. After investing so much, hard to stop playing.
Porkchop420 - Needs some additional help
Okay so the game is basically pretty cool but it has some draw backs first of all u less you spend money it’s hard to collect all the players cause you have to collect pieces of them and if you get them you rarely get them again to level up but you’ll get the same 2 characters till there generals and the dam game goes into over drive and when you do the searches like your supposed to now all of a sudden the game wants to give you 5 of that character now and you cannot even use them any more why not rotate the players you do need why does it give you the same 2 people and you can’t use those pieces anymore. Also when your in a clan you cannot share your resources with you guild mates on all other games you can share supplies within your guild and they tax you for it which is very helpful cause if your attacked and all of your supplies are taken and they have killed all your troops it will take you a week just to get back to what you had because it takes for ever to collect the resources back to get your troops back if you could share withi. Your guild you could put a tax on the resources that you share so like if you shared a million food or wood the tax could be high to begin with but if you leveled up say a trading station your taxes of resoreces could be reduced but never less than say 10% I just wish it would be more team friendly that away. Other then that it’s an okay game
jpack - Horrible Support
The game is similar to others out there. Build a settlement, attack zombies and compete with others for rewards. Warning, it is an expensive game. I’m fine with that, my issue is that their support is horrible. If you have any issue, it’s your fault. The game is riddled with bugs that lead to missing rewards (both free, and ones YOU PAID FOR), also some of the benefits (called buffs) you purchase won’t always work. Again, if you contact support, they will immediately say it’s your fault and close the support ticket. I found too many bugs that took things away from me that I paid for, so I stopped putting any money in. I also reported a few mystery charges I did not initiate, again it’s your fault, not theirs. I suggest you play it for free, and resist the urge to spend, because the developers will just find a way to steal from you. Or better yet, just move on to try one of the many other games that are exactly like this. Maybe those developers treat their customers better.
*** Response to developer: More time? Each time I submitted an issue you were quick to close the ticket without asking any follow up questions. I had to submit the same ticket three times for the same bug. Each time having to re-explain the issue to every new agent who responded. You were not interested in fixing the issue, you just wanted to blow off your customer who spent A LOT of money. So, I’m done spending money. I’ll play for free with that kind of support. ***
Pppllllooolllooo - Love it! BUT...
I love this game highly addicted and happy to have spent money on it. There hasn’t been a game I’ve actually enjoyed this much until this game. BUT, I have recently hit a brick wall, I’m a clan leader but the alliance has hit a brick wall with the alliance towers and research because there are no Gas Alliance Nodes along the outskirts meaning you have to move closer towards the middle to get Gas alliance nodes, unfortunately it also makes it harder to move because clans already Staken claim to areas within the map making it harder for smaller clans to grow and build along side of them. Honestly there should be more Gas alliance nodes all over the map especially on the outskirts of the map so it’s fair for all alliances. Also there should also be a way to @ people in chat whether it’s one person or the clan as a whole. Lastly I feel like clan leaders should have more reign during alliance events for example Alliance Showdown, give the clan leader the chance to move people to different lanes.
Honestly, I want to give this game 5 stars hands down, but there are just things that limit growth in the game whether it’s individual or as a clan. But I still love the game I just wish things could be added to the game ie; Gas Alliance Nodes around the outskirts, since there are already farm, wood, and metal Nodes. It forces smaller clans to have to move where there is no space cause stronger clans already taken up space in the central parts of the map.
BrindleStudio - Fun and Addictive! LOTS to do!
I have been playing a week or so; it is a fun addictive game with tons to do. Pokes to spend real money on the game are pretty reasonably not in your face but easily found if you want to go that route. I did spend about $15 on a top-up special and it gave me a big start as far as being able to speed up training and upgrading of my buildings. Worth it to me. Heck, I’d easily spend that on lunch and now that we’re in the COVID-19 era, I’m not going out to lunch as often as I used to so might as well still have some fun! I joined an alliance that is casual but active, which is nice! I love the events and the way that missions and other tasks are kinda staggered so you can play for pretty long periods of time. I wish that I could queue up research when individual research tasks are less than 10 minutes, maybe up to a limit of three tasks. Not a fan of shooty stuff where I have to control individual heroes so I’m really glad I can set the shooty challenges on auto and 3x speed...it is amusing to watch the zombies shamble into bullets and die in that mode. Nicely designed, visually attractive game. I will play for a long time, for sure. I wish there was more stuff to decorate my settlement with! Maybe I will discover there are as I progress.
deano19892012 - Average free game with good graphics
Overall SoS is a good enough game for being free. The graphics are good and there’s plenty of content to do for being a free game. That being said, the developers make it clear they want you to spend money by constantly putting different ‘packs’ everywhere on your screen that can be purchased. One example is that every time you load the game there’s a pack that is offered for 4.99 (right now it’s the Survival of the Fittest pack). You can also pay to have a second construction slot to upgrade buildings, which is reasonable for the price. What isn’t reasonable is that every time you create a new character, you have to purchase the second construction slot again. This was very misleading because I purchased it on my first character thinking it was a one-time only purchase because it literally says that in the game! The game can be played without ever having to pay money, but just know that you won’t ever be as powerful as the people who pay for power(yes this game is pay-to-win). I’ve been playing this game for over 10 months now and I do enjoy it, although sometimes I do get annoyed at how much the game tries to advertise different things that can be purchased. If you are looking for a new game to play that is free I would recommend trying out SoS, but just note that it’s pay-to-win and you’re going to get bombarded with ‘deals’ and offers in the game.
Jozzut - Good game with the same old story
The game is fun and the graphics are very well done. But as is the norm for this type of game it’s fun for a few days then you need to shell out $$$ to get things done without waiting hours for upgrades on buildings or troops to finish. This game has good game play and lots of missions to keep you busy but once again it’s a game where the biggest players destroy the smaller players constantly so what’s the sense of playing. I don’t mind being attacked and losing a battle and resources but there no way to continue to grow when you are attacked and destroyed several times a day. Put a limit on how much a player can lose before a free and I mean free shield pops up to save loss of resources based on player level. I liked this game and even in an alliance you get destroyed. It’s a shame I don’t mind spending here and there to play but the cost of a shield is way too expensive. Just another good game that’s going to lose out on the volume of player to please the few big spenders. Such a shame this was a well designed game. It’s almost a great game. But who wants to grind and have nothing to show for it when your not on and have to start over. If you lose a battle pvp you might as well quit moving your base and a shield (peace flare) will break you wallet. I understand the game needs to make money but 100 small spenders will spend more than 1 big spender food for thought.
!)(@$890 - State of survival (cons and pros)
State of survival is a great and Over all a very good game, you can never get bored with all the daily missions. Daily missions when completed give you loot and other resources, the game gives you opportunity to communicate with other players and work as a team to survive. I enjoy the explorer trails, they are challenging and fun, sometimes challenges can be hard and that’s why there’s an auto button. This was a great game, and I most of all loved when there were events like the joker. This allowed me to do so much more, and cure my boredom. You can get prizes and sometimes even more characters. Though some cons come in, you can’t really upgrade fast, for you need supplies that is hard to get and without that supplies you can’t do quite a lot. Like training troops for instance, and fighting or going on explorer trails. Some challenges can hold you back in the game and the prices for resources are high. Even though the cons aren’t the greatest I love this game and everything with it, it’s so amazing.
There’s even a help center where you can text people or workers in the game to get supplies and other questions answered. The game is a fun and exclusive way to cure boredom, it teaches a lot and I feel this game has really benifited me and will do the same for you. I rate this game 4 stars, tell me what you think.
michaelspringfield - Addictive
Addictive game. The first few levels are great but as you advance upgrades to your buildings take longer and longer until upgrades take hours to complete. To make matters worse you hit a wall on what you can do without upgrading. You cannot queue up your upgrades so the next one starts when the one you are working on finishes. That would be a great feature to help with advancing gameplay while you are off doing real life things like working, going to school or sleeping. You cannot add a second construction slot to work on other things unless you pay real money. The same goes for training troops. At higher levels it takes hours. Upgrading your hero hits a wall. The really good upgrades, you guessed it, costs real money. Exploring the world? You can send out tow groups to gather resources, which once again, takes hours on higher levels. You cannot get more groups to send out unless, you guessed it again, pay real money. Researching new technologies. You hit the upgrade wall and you can’t research more than one thing at a time unless, you guessed it, pay real money. Do you see a pattern emerging? After a certain point this becomes a wait forever for something to happen or pay to play. I am almost a week into it and have already hit the pay to play wall. I don’t see it staying on my iPad more than another week unless something changes.
Egg Cuteness ^.^ - .
I got this game about a week ago, so far I’m liking it. I did go ahead and purchase the Extra Labor Pack, my card got charged but I did not get the pack.. i had to “update” my payment so it directed me to the App Store and I put okay and the payment went through then when I went back the the game it said “payment failed”. So I was like okay whatever, I was pretty hesitant to buy it in the first place so I didn’t mind that it didn’t go through, he next day I check my purchase history in the App Store and I had a payment pending for The State Of Survival.... I go and check my bank app AND of course the payment is pending. So I tried disputing it with apple first and all they said was to contact the game support. So I went to see if I can find a number or something AND nothing. So I have to now dispute it with my bank and it is very annoying that the payment went through but I didn’t get the pack... which I really want because it has that extra slot to build two things at once, which would be fantastic. Now I’m just going to wait for my money to get back into my account and hopefully the pack is still there so I can purchase the thing and actually get what I’m paying for lol.
Small rant but good game just be cautious if you’re purchasing anything in the app.
Barchenowa - Different from the others
I began playing this game out of boredom with no expectations or desire to continue to play past the first day. This was not the case however. As soon as I went through the standard learning curve that all mobile RPG/Strategy base building games have, I knew it was a game I can see myself playing and investing time into. This game has a lot of the elements that other successful and popular games of the same genre has, but it is unique enough to keep you interested because it has added features and mechanics to the game that I personally haven’t seen in others. This game doesn’t feel like a “copy and paste” clone of other well known games that many many others on the app stores have become. The best part about this game in my opinion, is that I do not feel as if it a straight up cash grab game that pressures you into feeling like the only way you will succeed is if you spend a lot of money; if I spend any money, it will be because I want to not because I feel as if I have to. You can enjoy and actually compete within the game without ever spending any money. Overall, it’s a well made game that’s unique enough for veteran mobile game players to at least try out!
KAS1K5SPIRIT - Great game but
I love the game but if the creators are reading the reviews please listen to this one I would like more customization in the construction area of decorations because I want to customize my HQ more like for example add something like cut down logs to sit on for like a camp fire set up like I can put a mini bonfire then put logs around it and have a little camp set up and other customization things around the game like customizing your own character you can unlock things like shirts shoes socks pants accessories like jewelry sunglasses or glasses and you don’t have to go that far into it but add things like eyecolor and facial hair and expressions. Please! Let us have a 360 view so we can move around our view so we can see more to the HQ and other things in the game and also let us rotate things that we were allowed to rotate before like our warehouse or farm or lumberyard in those rotate those all the stuff so we can customize it more to this will be a big update but please do it if other people are reading this please like it so they can do this you don’t have to but if you agree you can. 😀👍😍👌 great job on the game Kings group loving it so far just more customization please
Cuddii* - DO NOT DOWNLOAD IF YOU DONT HAVE MONEY
Well hello fellow game players, I downloaded this game almost 1 year ago. Its fun, interesting, full of people but recently the game developers have made it apparent that money is more important than the players. This game is most definitely a power hungry contest. More power you have, more friends you have. Starting out power didn’t cost a lot of money, $20 here $20 there. No big thing. Now it’s THOUSANDS of dollars. You are now PHYSICALLY UNABLE to progress in the game at the pace needed to in order to survive. (Survive; you have your own army of troops, when they die, you no longer can play the game; stronger players kill your troops). I have spent close to $1,000 dollars on this game and It’s very heartbreaking to know that a majority of my fellow players that I have made close friendships with will now be unable to progress in the game and await our demise from stronger (rich) players. The developers will auto respond to this review and tell us “your voices are being heard” - “please contact us through the help message in game” but they don’t help. Our in game inventory goes missing, they don’t help, our purchases don’t get added, don’t help. It’s always automated responses. It’s really a shame what the developers have done and continue to do. This game is fun, you make a lot of friends and it is BEYOND time consuming but if you don’t have thousands of dollars to spend on it, please don’t waste your time.
RenaHen1969 - Could be a great game... bullying ruins it!
It’s supposedly free to play but unless you put in a lot of money, unless you have a endless supply of cash or your mommy and daddy‘s credit card you aren’t going to get anywhere but crushed. And the developers don’t care, or that’s the feeling that is received by everyone. There’s different levels that your base can be at and different stars your base can have. I’ve watched repeatedly as alliances that have eight star bases attack little alliances and crush level 28, level 25, heck I’ve even seen a level 20 go down under a 8 star base, because they don’t have the cash to put into it. There’s nothing to stop much much higher levels from killing states. Those are called dead states, and there’s a lot of that going on. There is nothing put into place to stop the rampant killing, BULLYING, that’s going on. The Devs could put a stop by just halting anyone from attacking three levels below their own, but that might stop the money from coming in and they can’t have that. It’s going to come to a point where everyone leaves and the only ones left are the credit card players, and soon they’ll have to attack their own.
This game was fun, it’s just not anymore. So if you have a credit card it’s a great game for you, if you don’t have a credit card with an endless supply of cash stay away from this game.
THEPaNzEE1 - My state is dead
State 72 is dead top 5 clans went an joined forced into 1 clan cause there arent enough players to play against in the state itself an now anyone who comes into are state is just dying cause we have all the strongest people in the state so now all we can do is events games fun but would like to smash the low population states together , also people in my state are running 3 different accounts an ruin the game for people with 1 account example:i try to do one of the events an it takes alot of stuff or materials to do it an i have 1 account so i use all my stuff to place high in the ranks only to have some guys 2nd account thats low level win because over the course of the game they just save an save because their 2nd account doesnt get used to often so it makes it impossible to place at the top cause once you start to beat someone they use the 2nd account just so you dont win because there main account could caught up cuz they sont have enough stuff to do so which is very much unfair to anyone else whos trying to do events
Fab_was_here - Terrible customer service. DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY
I have been playing this game for almost a year. It has been fun and there are a lot of good qualities to it. What has ruined it is the lack of interest to their user base. I had made a purchase and the game crashed (the game crashes A LOT) and i contacted their customer service, which is pretty much a chat bot. Waited. Waited. Waited some more and nothing so i contacted apple. They issued a refund and thats when I received a response from SoS. I was placed in probation for requesting a refund and until i pay back the refund i would not be allowed back. WHAT? Lol.. i pleaded my case but they refused to acknowledge the validity of my claim and kept repeating that refunds requests are a violation to their terms.. what a joke... especially from someone whose spent a pretty penny in this game.
When i submitted my ticket with customer service i had all documents. I had receipts, proof of purchase from paypal/apple as well as screenshots that the package that i paid for was still locked.. they still refused to see the evidence and only focused on me requesting a refund from apple. As if im supposed to wait a long time to request a refund.. this is a big community with loads of servers on discord. I’ve shared my experience in all of them and this has been echoed by a lot of players. So many issues with purchases and customer care not caring about it.
So users beware, they do not care about you.
Matteson's Girl - Players are unheard
I have been playing this game for over a year. I would call myself a moderate spender. I have invested $1,000’s of dollars. I am definitely a top 20-25 player in my state. My husband also plays, and he is one of top 10 strongest players in the state. So you see, we’ve invested a lot of money and time. Our alliance is ranked 2 in our state and we’re competitive on a global scale with players reaching the top 100 global leaderboard. Now we watch as our state and alliance dies around us. Players are leaving everyday. There is no replacing them because there are no players left to replace them with. The constant large upgrades have made spenders leave because their previous $20,000 investment is no longer going to be able to compete with the player that is dropping another $20,000 into the newest upgrades. The gap between free-to-play and pay-to-play is almost laughable at this point. To top off costs and the dying state components the game is incredibly glitchy and at game day reset you know you’re not going to be able to login. The rewards for the “everyday” events like bunkers and facilities, horde, plague zones, intel, CC, and SvS are so dated and really only help low spend players that are just starting out. Help save our dying states and reinvigorate gameplay in older states and not with events that just cost us more money either. You can do better SoS.
Punky green 81 - No sure why
Not sure why I keep logging in. No sure why I even hit the buttons, not sure why I train troops,not sure why I care. This game has no point at first you have fun you build you grow then it all stops. It then becomes a game of well I’ll log in just to see if my people have been eaten, or if my supplies have been taken in a attack, it at the point of sheer boredom. So I’m not sure why I keep logging in and clicking the buttons. The constant updates got old 20 updates ago and that is not an exaggeration. The “ challenges” are not. The game is boring and the same all the time some events have been interesting but mostly the same thing with different colors so do one event and you’ve done them all it just repeats and repeats and repeats endlessly. You can’t grow or develop anything new after about week 2 so I have no idea why I keep playing. 3-4 months and I keep hoping this update will bring something new and nope.
So developers maybe add something new please, games can be repetitive but really you are bringing a whole new level to so beyond the same..I hope you actually understand what I’m saying, and I hope anyone thinking of downloading this doesn’t, and I’ll probably unload it soon it really a waste of time and space on my device. But it’s become a habit to just click but it brings me no joy and very very very very little entertainment.
txwolf32 - Update 1.9 was terrible
This game is good for what it is. It’s a zombie survival game. I mean I spend more time fighting other survivors than zombies, but whatever. I enjoy it for the events and the fun I have with the players. Overall it could be better for reasons I state below.
Each update seems to have more and more things that players are not requesting and less things we actually want. Please listen to those who are playing your game and fix the issues. We can all adapt to changes and work with new ideas, but completely overhauling something that has no problems, with no reasoning, makes no sense and only takes away from the gaming experience. Many of us have put a lot of time and money into the game, so consider that before just trashing what we love about the game and take heed to our suggestions. There have been update that came as a request of players, and that’s awesome but more often than not it’s a patch or a throw in instead of being a planned thing. A lot of players are starting to get stuck in old states that are dead, so consider opening state moves or combining states so those players can keep enjoying the game. Take the time to focus on where your money comes from instead of how you can make more of it. Thanks.
mya1101 - Honest Opinion
Since there isn't an updated Review on this game and I know that Reviews are technically personal opinions, but hear me out. This game is somewhat fun and somewhat boring. I play it daily and there's some pros and cons. I wish the cooldown for the Settlement Buffs were less because I can't take a 20 minute without my settlement getting attack and then I'm back to square 1, trying to make "money" again. It's also very simple to get currency in this game. I've only spent money on this game once and it's only been $4.99 other than that in my opinion, you really don't have to spend money on this game like others are saying. I also think there should be a mute button for messages that are being sent by Alliance members because they can be some spammers and it gets pretty annoying from time to time. Not to mention, that after you finish beating all of the "Boss" zombies to unlock your land that's it, there's no more boss levels to complete which is kind of boring because that was the only reason why I continued to play this game. There are mini version of the boss levels on a mini map, but I preferred the bigger boss levels you had to clear to unlock land. Like I said there's pros and cons, but overall 3.5 stars, semi good game.
MACD trended - Don’t put money or time into a game that requires you to bind your account.
The app restarted my game when I upgraded my phone. Don’t put your money or time into this game unless you can bind the account. It’s been over a week since I last logged in. Several active players sent Help and Support messages about what happened. Help and support is useless even though you send screenshots of all the transactions, chief information, coordinates, etc. I hope players are still active if I ever get my account back. Other than that I had fun playing the game. I enjoyed customizing my settlement and teaming with other players to fight the plague. If help and support were better this would be a five star game.
Help and Support was able to relocate my account after 26 days and I’m happy to play again. Unfortunately my base’s resources and troops were all depleted and I couldn’t start off running. My absence has impacted the alliance and many players lost interest in the game. I tried my best by purchasing several packs to rebuild my settlement and troops but I wasn’t the strong player that I used to be. I tried to motivate players to participate in events but we weren’t able to place anymore. It’s sad to see the players that I invested my time into leave the game. I tried my best.
82k8u3 - Don’t waste your time. It’s rigged to make you spend money .
This game has potential to be fun. But it’s an exercise in futility. You join up and get put in a state only to see level 30 players who spent hundreds and thousands of dollars bullying everyone who doesn’t spend money or is new. So you can have your settlement for a week and some other player comes along who’s been playing for a year destroys you. Even if you spent money for the first week they are to powerful and the money you spent was a waste. They even have an event called kill stage where you get points for kills. So after joining for 5 days I got attacked by one alliance a bunch of times and had no troops and they moved my settlement as it burned to the ground . So essentially starting from scratch .
I got placed in a state where 90% of the alliances are foreign. And they see an American player and I am a sitting target. I join a decent size alliance and they dictate where we can build and what we can and can’t do. So much fun!! Sarcasm of course. Save your money on another game. I hope one person who spends money reads this and goes to another game instead and spends their money elsewhere.
And Kings group knows this, I have spoken to other dissatisfied players who have written Kings and they don’t care. It’s stacked for spenders.
Denise Heneka - LOVING IT
I love how the game is baste on zombies I love zombies games so much it’s something that is interesting to me and I also love how the game is based on zombies because when I was little about three or four are used to watch The Walking Dead all the time my mom just let me watch it constant I really like zombies and gory movies so for me to download this game is a real treat for me. That is why I downloaded the game state of survival and this is also why I rated this a four star review it is probably one of the best games I’ve ever downloaded in my downloading history I am very happy to have a state of survival game it is also like I said a very awesome treat for me so thank you for Creating this amazing zombies game so for whoever made this game you are the best person living yes of coarse a lot of people are the best at living I guess but this is just the best game I’ve had so thank you so much for putting this game in the game store I really appreciate this and I’m going to play it over and over again all my life this is why I picked a four star rating yet because it has its ups and downs but I really think that this game has some talent and I think that I’m going to play all my life so thank you and goodbye.
Nanna's angle - LONG TIME PLAYERS LEAVING IN DISGUST.
I have been playing this game for approximately two years. It was fun to start with new and exciting but has turned into a money pit. If you do not spend money you get nowhere in this game and that is exactly what they want you do to. There are players who have been playing this game since the beginning who are leaving because they are disgusted with the poor customer service, updates that are never right, events where they steal your items from you and do not even tell you in the rules for the event that this is going to happen. You get kicked out of the game all the time. Terrible lag, game freezing and cannot get it to undo without going out and coming back in the game. I am very frustrated that they do this to their customers who play this game and get away with it. Long time players we are talking about just quitting because they are so disgusted with Kings Group. So beware of this game but if you enjoy being lied to, items stolen, getting kicked out of the game, lagging game so bad it just sits there and spins and then they have the never to tell you it is your connection. Well it never happened before until the upgrade they do. They do the upgrades and never fix the problems. So please find another game to play besides a Kings Group game and save yourself a ton of headaches.
DC/MD lawyer mommy - Good Game, but don’t spend money here
The game is fun. But you need to be very careful about where you settle down and where you choose to build your headquarters. Before you build, or invest ANY money, try to get a sense of the alliances there. Once you are there for a few days, you cannot take your HQ and move to another state, so you have to abandon it and start over. And spend more money.
Many states are full of bullies, who destroy weaker alliances for no reason and force them to abandon what they have built. The game does not prevent the strongest players (5 star/level 35) from attacking anyone, no matter the difference in power. It does not limit the number of attacks or cap resources that can be stolen. People are openly bullied and harassed in the state chat by these groups. That is a BIG problem in this game.
The developers do not respond or assist, even when presented with picture evidence of the bullying, copies of attack logs and other evidence. Probably because they already got the money from the players and don’t care. This game could be so much better and enjoyable for everyone, with a few small changes, and if the developers cared to stop the terrible behavior. But, so far they have not, and some states, like 493, have turned into dumpster fires.
Right side only - Not bad, surprisingly fun and addictive
I just downloaded this game yesterday. I have spent money on it, because I’m impatient and from prior experiences playing games like this. If you don’t pay for some of the “perks”(extra resources, speed up etc.); you will be a target for the really big spenders. They will zero you out and lose interest in the game. You can’t play on your own, you will need to join an alliance to make it easier to get resources and reduce the amount of time building and researching. It seems like the devs are listening to the players, on current event, they lowered the requirement to obtain prizes. The game is simple and isn’t too hard to figure out. One of the things I think that needs improvement is the requirements to get a peace shield. You have to use “bio-caps”, which are hard to get. If you get bio-caps, it’s takes a lot of them to get a 24 peace shield. Quick search on the internet, I found you can enter codes to get bio-caps and others things to get you going, that is a nice surprise. Overall it’s not that bad of a game. The packs are inexpensive, but they increase in price when you purchase one. So be careful and select wisely.
FreshieeFresh - Better than Most!
I’ve played this game fore only 3 days but I can tell that this is a different experience than what I’m used to. I’m this game there are so many different gameplay mechanics that you may forget. Not only can you attack other players bases, but there is a single player mode, and side quests. The single player missions are similar in terms of gameplay and the story may be not that fleshed out, but it’s still highly enjoyable. However this is a free to play game, so how are the micro transactions handled? Unfortunately every time you load up the game they will shove a micro transaction opportunity done your throat. They also put micro transaction logos over key buildings in the game in the hope that players will click on them. I have done this several times and it’s an annoyance in my opinion. I understand why they do this, but I still don’t agree with it. However the positive to all of this? You DO NOT need to buy these transactions to progress at an acceptable pace. There are plenty of ways to speed up building construction and scientific research. Overall I think if you like zombie games, base builder, and simply want something to pass the time download this game and try it out.
cbf sad h - False Advertising Up The Wazoo
Just wanna say real quick I didn’t have a problem with this game player wise before seeing all these ads, now I feel like I’ve gotta say something. The game is literally every kingdom building game ever. Tapping and waiting and paying to not wait as long, like we’ve all played and complained about before. I actually don’t have too much of a problem with this game aside from what I’ve just listed because I went into this gaming KNOWING what I was getting into and knowing that if I wanted to get ahead and upgrade stuff without waiting months on end I was gonna have to pay outta pocket. I’ve had this game for a few months and play it when I’m bored, it’s good for wasting time and if I care to pay attention to the 19,000 different story lines going on in the game then that too also passes the time for me. But I’m writing this one star review because what I cannot stand is seeing all the false advertising for this game on other apps and ads. It’s ridiculous and it’s pathetic you dupe people into downloading your app because they think if they play long enough and get through the half hour hand holding tutorial that they’ll finally get the kind of action they saw in your advertisements that made them download in the first place, when in reality they won’t. Shame on y’all.
TJSINP - You will spend all of your money
This game is fun with many ways to strategize for optimal play. However, the constant barrage of advertisements for $4.99 here and $4.99 there to enhance your experience are designed for players to accept without thinking. For those with problems of self control, especially during a pandemic when you’re trying to find an escape from the real world, you will easily spend thousands of dollars without realizing it. In order to be a top player in this game and compete for top prizes, you will have to spend $10,000+ and deal with sexual harassment, hate, bigotry, xenophobia, and a multitude of other undesirable characteristics of top players. I have created accounts in at least 7 different states in this game and there is only one state that has some semblance of organization. It can be fun, but it can also be financially devastating and gut wrenching for people looking for a simple escape during a global crisis. Along with that, there are updates all of the time that include major game lag and missed opportunities to participate in events due to these constant upgrades. I’m sure there is a better game out there where you can have just as much fun, meet people from all over the world, and spend a fraction of the money. Go see for yourself but heed the warning.
Aftremn - Wonderful progression in states
This game is wonderful. The world is broken down into states. Each state is independent and the game promotes cooperation within that state. If you join a newly created state, the zombies that appear on the map are less powerful and the “high level” areas of the map are locked down. As the state grows over time, higher levels of zombies unlock and eventually your state unlocks the ability to have a player to be the governor of the state and grant state wide buffs using currency earned by everyone in that state and eventually battle against other states. I’m not sure if it is due to state specific player enforced rules, but players in my state do not zero out bases or pick on low level bases as I have experienced on other war style games. It is possible to be competitive by investing time into the game without paying but as in most games, I suspect the top 10 teams are made up mostly of people who spend money every week. There are a good number of events that rotate and some that appear as your state progresses.
Nachtbringer - Broken/glitchy app - No support
This game is super glitchy and crashes constantly. I’ll get locked out of the game for hours and have entire events or tasks I miss because of constant glitches and crashing. Events are basically “pay to win/pay to play” and so is pretty much every other part of the game. This would be fine except that I will spend the money, and it could be a few hundred dollars, on events, only for it to crash every time I try to load it and prevent me from playing much if any of said event. As the issues have been getting steadily worse over the last few months, as much as I loved and enjoyed the game, I am ready to call it quits. I want the money I’ve put into the game back because it’s literally unplayable. Of course the developers and apple support are both completely unhelpful telling me I should try and dispute the charges with my bank instead of trying to get help from them. I’ve never considered getting a Samsung before now.
Moral of the story, don’t get this game. With as expensive as it is to play, it shouldn’t be broken to the point that it is often unplayable, and don’t expect help from the developers or apple when it doesn’t work. They knew they were selling a faulty product and so they won’t do anything about it to help.
Sid 😡😡 - Nice game BUT..
As other reviews have already pointed out that game is pretty nice and addictive but once you get past level 10 it’s too hard to upgrade buildings and heroes, get some legendary heroes and train troops without purchasing bundles. Not only that the bundles only keep getting more and more expensive. The event rewards have also become limited and hard to get basically purchase more bundles to complete events to get those “free rewards”
However, the most annoying thing of all this their ‘help and support’. I purchased a bundle but the transaction failed. I was charged for the purchase anyway so I reached out for assistance but got no response (aside from them asking for receipt which I provided). You would think that the game that you spend so much money on would have a good customer service but oh well! The only reason I still am on the game is because my alliance is awesome but don’t know how long I can keep up with their poor service. Oh did I forget to mention the horrible glitches 😊 every update basically releases a new glitch :) the app freezes/ crashes, rewards go missing (again no help from ‘help and support’), lags a lot!!
I wish they would focus a little on the reviews and suggestions
laurieoreo - Fun even for free players
I’ve been playing this for about 6 months as a free player, and really enjoy the game. There are cyclical as well as special events that keep the game interesting, I’m always learning new things. There are enough ways to earn resources and currency as a free player that I never feel left out, and the purchase screens aren’t too pushy/obnoxious. I really like customizing my base and having so many different options for game play (attacks, explore missions, rallies, gathering, etc) and ways to continue to improve my standing.
Customer support is also great, very responsive and generous with “apology packages” when the game has issues.
The one thing that’s kept me playing this game longer than others is how great the people in my alliance are. I do think the developers need to make it easier to find states with a lot of options for alliances that speak your language. There is an in-game translator that is very helpful, but it’s not something you want to use for every communication.
CKRUEGER5398 - Well it’s been over a year…
I didn’t write a review at first because I’ve played plenty of games like this. Though this one has more conversations with its players and developers via discord, there’s many things ignored. As players, we’ve given what we want or need constantly and yet every update has things we never asked for or wanted. You manage your settlement, your heroes, your chief. The best part of the game, is finding an alliance you connect well with. I’ve made some of the best friends and family, and they are the only reason I haven’t stopped playing. Our state is dying and quickly. Our big spenders are quitting, our F2P can’t keep up because the rewards don’t update. A merge of servers is desperately needed and though we’re being told it’s happening, it keeps getting pushed. Many maxed players have an overstock of items in their backpacks that are now useless, but they keep getting them as rewards. Getting frags for heroes is either pay or fall behind. It’s definitely a player beware. Unless you are a social person, you will quit quickly. The friends are the only thing that makes this “chore” worth it.
sunwhisper - Great Game, Horrible Customer Service
This is a great game to play, a little glitchy at times but things you can live with. If you are new to the game, start at a new state. If you go into an existing state it will be difficult unless you are spending money. Even in a new state, you have to spend money to level up and keep up with other players or you will get burned.
Customer service is pretty bad. I have had issues buying packs and not getting items, this happens more than you would like it to. And a familiar story among Alliance members and they don’t take banking transaction details as proof which is crazy. They want screenshots of the game etc when you don’t take as you never assume your purchase is going to fail. Also when you log tickets for things going missing in your backpack or using items that are taken away from inventory yet the buff does not work is troublesome as it is impossible to get CS to give you back any items. I have had to wait days for CS to respond and at the end of going backwards and forwards for a week, they say “No issue found” and you just lose anything that went missing.
Artistic Advertising - Created to take your money
Although this game is enjoyable at first, it was only created to take your money. It has many features and is very intricate, but at a point you can only advance if you buy some sort of game feature like a hero bundle, or badges, etc. You cannot get to the level of your enemies unless you spend $4.99 here or $1.99 there. I got to level 7 for free but in order to get to level 8 I would have to spend $4.99 for a feature to get over an obstacle. What would I get for real cash from my Apple wallet? Some stupid virtual advancement that vaporizes as soon as I delete the game off my phone, only to find another obstacle requiring another $4.99. The game developers are geniuses for devising this game scheme, however. “Create a game where users will get addicted and be ‘forced’ to buy character features in order to ‘win’!” Which never happens because there are too many other networked players with more ability than you who have probably spent $1000 on game features. What a waste! Don’t get addicted to this game-you will have nothing to show for it in the real world after your piggy bank or Apple wallet is empty. Instead, spend your money on an online business course where you can make money for your family.
Blake.D - Awful support
I normally don’t review but this game has really chapped me. It’s a great game, I have spent hundreds of days and more in money on this game and play it daily still. I have no issues with the game itself but rather the company. This game like every other game now days has micro transactions, I purchased them for months now with no issues. Last week however I spent my $50 for a few packages of gear parts and did not receive them. I contacted support and was told it can take up to 24 hours. They said if I had not heard back by then to contact them again. I waited and waited and didn’t get anything in game so I reached out again and was left with silence. I then let them know I would be requesting a refund and I reached out to Apple who issued the refund within a day. I was then contacted 2 days later by support letting me know that any future packages I purchased would be held until I had spent the $50 with them again. They are stealing from the player base and Apple allows it to happen. Once again the game is great but read online before you spend money I am not alone in this their are plenty of people in the same position as me. I will not be spending any more money with them and the account is now in my eyes useless.
britxannx - Fun
Great time pass or buffer for another wait time game. Mini missions killing zombies and alliances. What’s not to loveeeeeee. People you rescue will teach you things as well as your alliance. There’s an open world chat with a translator as well. For most part people are chill can be mean to noobs and you can get your occasional creep. But just don’t chat or report the player. Most part those like I said people are chill. Been playing for a few days still trying to figure out everything. They offer a lot and don’t have to pay to play. Graphics are cool and load times aren’t a major. Can be fun solo and with friends/family. I do recommend this game based on the missions and not pay to play. There is daily rewards and things to keep busy as you wait for your base and troops to upgrade or train. Fun fun fun thanks these are my personal opinions and I did get a reward for this review. It’s nothing crazy just a simple thanks in game play. You can play at your own pace and not rush through things.
Man4allrsn - Ineptitude and greed, a pathetic combination
First, the game is fun. Let’s get that out of the way.
Having said that, let me state categorically that to really get anywhere in this game you better have a serious amount of money to blow on crap. Everything costs, and they nickel and dime you to death. I spent several hundred dollars in a matter of a couple months.
In light of that, let me add that their support is non-existent most of the time and completely incompetent for the remainder. I had an issue over the disappearance from my storage of a few items purchased. I acknowledged that they had been there, but somehow vaporized from my inventory. In dealing with this i was passed off to multiple people, having to re-explain every time. The general tactic was to wear me down until i gave up. When that failed, Their response was: you got the items, have a nice day. They never actually understood the problem, or they pretended they didn’t.
In the end, i’m not certain if i’m more offended by their incompetence in solving a problem over $7.98, or their stupidity in sacrificing hundreds of dollars in future revenue from me over such a piddly amount.
Whatever. I no longer care, but i will NEVER give these people another dime, and you shouldn’t either.
LointerLeo - DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME! BREEDING GROUND FOR BULLIES!
DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME! REPEAT: DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME! THIS IS BREEDING GROUND FOR BULLIES! YOUR MONEY WILL GO WASTED! The game lures you in with humans have to be cooperative during a zombie apocalypse and they did a beautiful job at that. In the early stages of the game, you would be building up your home, your troops, gathering resources and killing zombies. After a certain point, ugly head started to rear up. Stronger players, either started playing before or serious players who spent lots of money, started going around bullying people. They would send their troops around razing your home and your hard-earned money. Since they keep attacking you and killing your new troops, raiding your resources while building their own, you have almost no chance of fighting back. And mods do not intervene at all! Other games would have a system to prevent things like this from happening but these developers make no efforts at it. The whole state turned into bullies' hunting ground and the money you spent early in the game is wasted. AGAIN! DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME! *** P.S: I am not taking this down unless devs start cracking down on bullying in this game. Either ban them outright or move them to a more developed state where they can fight people their own weight, but DO SOMETHING!
weenis elbow - Survival
It seems others are having a similar experience that I have also encountered. Love the game and nearly everything about it. It’s the only game I play. However, customer service isn’t a service. It’s seems more of trained responses to somehow blame you for an issue that we have no control over. I initiated 4+ tickets and was dismissed each time, having to come up with more proof, screenshots, and narrative. I tried explaining what happened each time, even stating that I don’t want a refund or exchange (I just wanted the item I purchased), but the gist of all replies “it is impossible” (their own words).
After receiving the same message despite evidence I simply wanted to be understood which I have now given up on. I’ll still play the game, but will not interact with no “help & support” for as long as humanly possible. I would give this game more than 5 stars if I could otherwise. Hopefully this review doesn’t impact my gameplay, but had to share my experience as it appears I am not alone. Keep on surviving everyone!
Please don’t send some automatic developer response saying y’all are fixing the issue. I suggest simply making it what it is - a service.
<3siena<3 - Way more fun than I expected
From the ad I saw, I just thought it was going to be a sort of tower defense style game. It is in some aspects, but there’s really a lot going on in this game. There’s plot and storyline, interesting characters, and a large variety of tasks. There’s also worldbuilding, alliances, and of course there’s the combat which is fun as well. While there are a lot of of elements the game makes it easy to figure out what’s going on by making innovative tasks and goals. There’s also an interesting function where townspeople ask you little trivia questions about gameplay which help make sure you understand what’s going on (if you get them right you get a reward!). I thought I would just download as a way to pass the time but it’s honestly very great. Also while I haven’t had the game long, I haven’t felt like the game is “pay to play” as many games like this are. Now as I continue maybe that will change, but for now I am greatly enjoying it.
JFHeff - Don’t do it
The gameplay itself isn’t bad, although it does seem to keep getting more bugs or half developing things and rolling out a “beta” version of something new and just eventually abandoning altogether without warning or real updates which is kind of frustrating. But that isn’t really the big issue, the problem I had was the customer service, it was laughable when you did contact them about bugs and glitches. I once tried for over a week to tell them about a problem I had SPENDING more! As in the game glitched and wouldn’t let me, and they handled it with the most broken communication and cryptic messages over a week plus of random back and forth, seriously it was so frustrating at first it infuriated me but went on in such comical fashion resulting in total absurdity I just had to laugh at it all by the end.
In summary, the game is of average interest to play, it is very limited unless you want to spend a lot, and be prepared that even if you are ok with that and accept it, it might not always let you and the customer service to problem solve towards any real solution is not going to be there. Lots of options out there, I recommend swiping left on this one.
FS0SYALLGR33DYAF - Double Charges, Support threatens and robs
This game is 100% pay to play. Be prepared for that before you download. Don’t download if you run iOS Beta programs, or honestly even if you have iOS (they gave Hawai players extra time after some events end so you spend $$ to win and surprise you don’t). Not only that, they are double charging you regularly. Me and several of my alliance members noticed this. They contest refund with Apple, then after you contest they give in but send you a nasty message saying you won’t get future purchases of the same dollar amount (essentially saying they’ll take your $$ til they get back what Apple refunded). Their customer support takes AGES to get back to you, and is incompetent to say the least. They said, and I quote: if frequent refunding is detected, swift and decisive action will be taken. Like what? You gonna sue me for you double charging and me requesting a refund? Screw these greedy developers. Oh btw, they charge tax on all in app purchases so that 4.99 comes to 5.29. I dropped $200 in a couple weeks and they still take forever to reply. F these developers Fr. If you read this good luck man and I hope you are ready to hand over your wallet. I only stay for my alliance fam 😅
WarriorOperator - Unprofessional Rude Greedy
The two stars are because I like the game, but your customer support is ridiculous and condescending. I have NEVER had to leave a bad review ever, but this treatment will not go unspoken, the fact that I’ve spent my hard earned money to enjoy a game is fine, but the simple fact is when I don’t get my money’s worth is outright thievery. I’ve tried to contact you through in game support and on Instagram and of course I got no reply except when I told you that I would go through apple to resolve the issue your response was " glad you can get the issue resolved ". That’s disgusting to say the least, I’ve noticed from other reviews that you enjoy giving your customers the run around and unfulfilled support, I am appalled that you have the nerve to not either reimburse me or compensate me for my time and money. I promise you and I don’t break promises, I will happily and vigorously let everyone know on every social platform of your blatant disregard for paying customers and your complete and utter lack of responsibility via Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Discord and reddit forums. There was albino sense in treating me or any other customer in this fashion.
jpal2000201 - Overall Experience
Here is how i rated. I start with 5 stars. One star was deducted for not having good clarity of game play. I highly recommend a short video of the main beginners topics (informing that there are alliances out there to join, how to communicate with other members, what not to do as a beginner like attack. Lol). The subtopics like building, research, etc. you do very well in guiding. You teach really good on how to press and what to press. I realized this was my second time playing (trying it out) after a large period of time in between. The first time as I was building I did the dumb mistake of attacking a base. Lol. They demolished everything I worked for. So I stopped. I was not in an alliance because I was still trying to figure things out. Makes me wonder how many other people are in the same predicament, which is why I dropped another star. Loosing player interest quickly due to lack of knowledge.
On another note, how awesome would it be to be able to interact with this through VR? Is it possible to somehow create something where you could play either through mobile or VR?
Firebird805 - Fun game!
This is a pretty fun game to play and spend a little time on. I definitely prefer this game over to most others in the category. Games like Evony and Fire Age are not as good as State of Survival. The only game similar that I think still trumps it is Clash of Clans. However they are very different games so maybe not a fair comparison. This game is relaxing and simple. It’s pretty easy to progress through the game as well. However, the couple reasons that I gave this a 4 star instead of 5 are:
1. There seem to be a couple bugs for me. The one that stands out the most is the alliance donations. They don’t ever seem to work properly. It either says that I can’t donate or they will reset in 10:00 with a countdown timer that just restarts over and over again.
2. I believe the game could do a bit better at explaining some of the minor things or what specific buildings do. It does a good job of explaining the main parts of the game but there are some alliance features that I don’t understand as well as some of the buildings purposes.
Shylioness - Bullied by High Level Player
I really enjoyed this game and didn’t mind grinding and paying for supplies. It’s taken me awhile to realize that one high level player has been attacking my lower level settlement over and over again. Last night I just realized that the rewards of all the grinding I’ve been doing for over a month were in the messages, reports, so I happily collected them all. I felt dumb for not knowing they were there all along, but was thrilled that I could grow. Along the way I’ve also made several in app purchases for supplies. Well, color me SHOCKED when I signed in today to see that almost ALL OF MY RESOURCES WERE GONE! I looked in the battle log to see what happened and that’s when I saw it, a high level player name AHA, has been attacking my settlement consistently. I just never notice much was missing because I never had much. So I grind and spend real $$ on this game only do a big time player can come take it all. And then…oh this is rich…and then this game offers to let me buy a booster package, or whatever they call it to help replenish my lost goods!!! AM I BEING PUNKED?? Well, no more. Don’t waste your time or money with this app. It should be named “State of a Rip Off”!
Jrbsk - They don’t honor your in game purchases
They advertise one thing for in game purchases and then send out messages after you purchased saying they won’t honor what you bought from them and they are changing what they are giving you to things nowhere of equal value. They have taken up to 2 weeks to respond to a help ticket that was time sensitive. They also will answer tickets saying you are lying when providing screenshot proof of what happened and immediately close the ticket making you start all over, not allowing you a chance to reply. It usually takes a month to get to someone who takes you seriously. This is not acceptable in a game where everything done in the game is time sensitive. Their failure to honor purchases and their failure to respond timely really sets you back - and this is all done on purpose because they figure you will spend more to reach the achievement you want while waiting or because they won’t do anything about it anyway. The devs for this game are a joke. For how much money this game brings in for them, I would expect a higher number of staff to meet the needs of their customers, as well as a much better trained staff.

epicyeets - Time
Reminds me of clash of clans, I love these types of games, where you can place buildings where you want and it doesn’t matter. But I have an issue, now. I remember one game had these same time skippers, it’s very nice, a bit different to clash of clans.. but it’s upgrade after upgrade after upgrade. I need to upgrade this to upgrade that and unlock a new area. These ridiculous games take over a year to finish. Which is normal for some games, but without the upgrades, you would finish it in a month. Other than that keep it up!
👌👍 win!! - Great game, terrible customer service
I’ve been playing this game for nearly a year and accidentally brought a few packs in my farm account and contacted customer service to request to have them transferred to my main, which I will add, I have spent a very considerable amount of money on. I accidentally used the vip points when collecting the daily drop out of habit and was told in order to replace them from the pack I could use bios in the vip store by the customer service rep. Except that by doing that it automatically added them to my vip points and not back into my backpack as they were needed in order to make the transfer. I was also told I’d need to replace 160 badge tags into my backpack, however these items are never displayed there and I have 1000 sitting under chief gear. To say I’m disappointed is an understatement after nearly a week of backwards and forwards with customer service and being told miss information and continually reminded that if I don’t magic the vip points back (or spend more money to replace them) within 7 days my request wouldn’t be facilitated. Something small like this on what was a genuine mistake on my behalf of not realising what account I was in leaves a bad taste in my mouth. It’s the little things like this that keep gamers like myself happy and spending, but happy I am not.
Wrendelle827 - Incompetent MODs
I’ve been playing SoS for almost two years now. I’m one of your pioneer players and I’m half way to completing VIP 12. Recently, I’ve contacted the in game support and asked them to help me with my issues on Christmas Wish event. Three MODs contacted me and each one of them gave me their apologies for not replying soon. I got reply from each one of them after almost 48 hrs. But, none of them truly helped me with my issues and made me even more confused with their replies. My issues are still on hold and I still have an open ticket but the event has already ended. And up to now, no one is giving me the answers to my questions and all I get are apologies from them for not replying soon. So, I told them that I’m disappointed in them for being incompetent. And after that, my game started getting Data Error every 5 seconds and I couldn’t even play the game properly now because I have to Reconnect the game every time it gives me Data Error. That’s how they treat you when they don’t like your reaction to their incompetence. And may I remind you that I’m one of the pioneer players of this game. In my opinion, this game will only be as good or as bad as the kind of MODs you hire or as to what kind of services you give.
Gareth (chunk) - The customer service is appalling
I have an in game glitch where my HQ is level 14 and I haven’t been able to upgrade the building Intel post. The building in question does NOT have an upgrade button. On top of that, when I press the intel button on the building it takes me straight to the radar to find infected mobs. When you press this button on the building it is meant to take you to the intel missions where you follow a story line and get rewards like epic hero fragments. So, I am lvl 14 with an intel post that cannot upgrade and an intel post that won’t let me access the intel missions. On top of ALL this, I opened a ticket to the customer service team hoping to get this resolved. I have been waiting 39 hours now for a response. In that time I have opened multiple tickets hoping to get a reply and so far.....nothing! I am on state 127 and my in game name is Setek. I would probably enjoy this game more if I could play it as it is intended. But, I am guessing if i do finally get a reply from customer support, they will just say that they’ve past it onto the developers and it is out of their hands and there is nothing that can be done. 5 days of game time put in that I won’t get back.
Mark-0 - Good game but marred by help support
Overall this is a good and highly complex game. Veteran players help newer ones which always is good. It’s is addictive and has many ways to pull you into the game at all hours of the day - beware of that.
However despite playing for months, I am very disappointed at the bugs in game and the very poor support from the helpdesk. I purchased a bundle, it did not arrive. The help desk did not respond so I requested a refund from Google which was approved. Now the SOS game applies a penalty to my account for something I never received saying I have to pay that before I can buy more in game. The helpdesk have said they cannot reverse this penalty charge.
To me that is immoral. I paid for something which was not received. I got a refund. Now the company tells me I have to pay them for something not received before I can buy more.
Overall very disappointed. The game is spoilt by the drive to make money. I’d recommend the game otherwise but beware; the helpdesk are not helpful and the game has many addictive qualities.
riksam - Game is so so.
The game is not to bad, some good events and graphics are pretty good…. BUT, things are way to expensive and geared more to p2p. Resetting talents is the most expensive I’ve seen in a game! Yes you can use alliance points but even that is expensive compared to what you earn donating. The packs are pretty good but they have way to many events to close together that you would be buying $50 worth of packs a day just to have a chance in the events otherwise you really do just miss out on good rewards in the events. Be prepared to lag behind if you are ftp player.
Little things like you don’t get to see by what % you get when levelling up a talent it benefit's your game play. Recalling a squad will cost you and you don’t get any of these recalls in daily missions or anything, same with speed ups for troop marches, you do not get them enough in daily missions so they will cost you as well! There are games out there that already do these things and are on par with this game if not better.
88SR88 - In-game purchase fail - customer service lacking
I love this game but recently attempted to make a couple of in-game pack purchases. My account was charged but the packs were never credited to my account. I submitted a ticket straight away, a few days later they got back to me asking for screen shots, which I then submitted. A week on since sending the screen shots they had made no further contact with me, so I sent a couple of messages to find out the progress, they eventually wrote back saying they were really busy and had many issues to resolve and then closed my ticket without resolving the issue. I have since creating another ticket for the same issue to seek having the issue resolved (either reimbursement of the money or credit my in-game account with the missing packs), yet another 4 days on and I still haven’t heard from them. This issue has been ongoing for two weeks and I still haven’t received proper support or a resolution. Money has been spent, items have not been received…. Please resolve the issue.
Keller01 - Needs Improvement
Developers of this game make changes with little to no testing first, throwing ‘improvements’ at its players with little regard to their enjoyment or preference. The new march settings make the game very unenjoyable. It takes too long to join a rally and setting troops to join is now a much lengthier and more tedious process. So far they ignore all player requests to roll it back to how it was prior to their ‘improvement’. Additionally, their newer states are nothing but a money grab. Now that R5s can’t ‘stock’ the alliance store, every player has their own alliance store in which to buy items such as advanced teleports, alliance teleports, and talent resets but the store is completely random and does not give u enough teleports and resets.
Often ur either stuck on war or economy talents and have to use biocaps to change. Or you’re stuck at base unable to teleport to bunkers because you only have ONE teleport to get you there and none to get back or you have none at all!! Of course you can use ‘biocaps’ again if u are p2p. Another UNWELCOME ‘improvement’.
xofmddlqrn - Overall great game but there is a problem
After resetting the level of one of my instructors, the game automatically kicked out that instructor and changed it to a random hero. Even one of slots for special training has been removed with that instructor who automatically kicked out. So I lost slots for special training. Why is that? My original intention was to try the new menu out of curiosity, not changing instructor; because I didn’t want to waste my effort to level-up that instructor for better rally capacity. Now I don’t know how to undo this. The situation is a mess. I want my original instructor back. 😩😩 Otherwise I love this game.
+ I fixed this by removing all the heroes in the training area.. now i got proper rank of hero as a new instructor but im not sure if my slots are going to be back.
Flixa - Customer isn’t always right for this developer
Customer support is non-existent or set to auto-reply. Several alliance members have had problems after updates and yet to see any actual help. Missing troops they’ve spent real world money on, inability to log on to their account properly are just a few of the major issues my alliance members have. And still have. Months later. All they get is a template style reply. Considering how much money you (as a customer) actually put into a game like this (because believe me, this is not a free game if you want to compete in anything) you would think they could hire some actual staff who work to look after their customers and fix the problems. This ineptitude and inattention will have you feeling frustrated and bored. If you’re going to play this game (because it can be fun) just don’t spend money in game or you could be their next victim.
EWCS - Issues
The game was alright till they focussed on pushing out lag based updates and server updates and now all it seems to do with high end connections and devices is just lag and freeze and drop out in connection where as it is as though all they are wanting to do is entice people to spend money in game without actually fixing the issues, it happens in numerous states where everyone is affected and it is now getting frustrating that I don’t blame any spenders to go through legal process which I can assist with to legally claim funds returned for faulty services that are actually deemed unusable and unacceptable in these situations as it’s at the stage no amount of updates is going to fix a server end when they can’t even function of upgrading it directly when such things get updated
A Free Game is a free game - Better than expected
The title says my opinion I honestly thought this game and nothing but open your wallet here and open your wallet there however this far and through my couple days playing so far yes they have been options to pay your way but they’re no essential Which makes it a worthwhile game in my opinion because the story is good the graphics are actually pretty nice and it’s going a lot of interesting features that I consider will make this game continue to grow
Keeksgracie - Avatar constantly removed, Apparently my face is offensive
I have seen photos of naked butts, women in bikinis, men in speedos, shirtless men, even without their faces.. Overly provocative photos mostly of men and I can’t even upload a selfie if it shows my shoulders or collarbone as they get removed constantly and put in a 72 hour cooldown. Targeted much ? They’re not offensive, they’re a smiling selfie with nothing remotely provocative about them. I even tested it by putting a photo of a male up and it wasn’t removed but yet my photos get removed or ‘reported’ constantly and support blames the system that’s been put in place and are no help. Who knew my face could be so offensive. What a disgusting thing to do. Wouldn’t be surprised if I get block next.. They got their money out of me and have no regards to their customers issues.
Ms Cortess - Tried to contact mod & email, no reply wanted money!
So I was strong, but I could have been stronger if I could do foreign tip offs, intel, join rally’s. I had so many glitches inhibiting progress and I was reluctant to review poorly until now where I can not sign in. My friend can sign in just fine on my network right sitting next to me while I just get reconnection messages. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app, made sure it’s updated. I have contacted mods about previous glitches, how to’s and now this glitch with no response. I have emailed them, yes this is a pay to win game and I paid some and all that’s lost. Quite frankly I am extremely annoyed, what a waste of my time and money. Why does no one contact me back? I want that money back since you can not give me my time back.
Dr K J Reynolds - Good game/ need more buildings
It’s a really good game and I love zombie games where you build your own settlement but tbh it’s kinda boring once you’ve unlocked all the buildings. Would be nice to have some more buildings (houses, power plants, office buildings,fire/ambulance station) just stuff to make it more of a city type settlement would be cool. Would love to have different skins for other buildings too like The hospital, to have a building rather then a tent. Would be cool too if you could have like emergency services or something as well. But overall great game love it. Just hope we get some new buildings and stuff soon.
Bonglord321 - Only one issue!
Games awesome, only issue I have is I can grind everyday for anywhere up to 1-2 weeks upgrading/training all my troops but if my defence falls once I loose all power gained within that time. Very frustrating to be putting in so much time and work to just lose it all so easily. Also to get back registerd troops to replace the fallen takes unnecessarily long and it restricts me from playing the game for days sometimes which is very frustrating. Overall good game though can’t get enough 👍
W1LD0M3N - Game issues.
So from what I can tell all the same issues r still happening and nothing is being done about it and it’s the same generic response we’re sorry but our team is trying it’s best and that just isn’t good enough anymore.
I left this game about 7 months ago after playing, spending and getting on everyday for over 2 years ago now for the exact same reasons. Nothing was ever fixed or replaced.
This game will take all ur money quick enough but will take a eternity to get ur resolutions fixed.
I came back in to c if it was worth downloading again and a different game and yet it’s the same game with the same issues. Save urself the heartache and defeat and download something else worth spending ur money on.
State Of Survival Gamer - I love this game
State of survival is so fun and I’ve only just got it since I’ve got it I don’t want to have to get off it. You get to have fun killing zombies and expanding a barrier between the zombies and you. While your in the game you get to make builds like hospitals and training spaces and as the levels get higher the game is way more fun.
To me personally I really love this game and K think that others would love it to so I would really recommend getting this game.
Thank you to the amazing creator for this really fun game.
Gaznem - What has happened to alliance store
Overall, this is a fun game. And you can make progress without spending too much money.
But they have COMPLETELY stuffed the alliance store in the new states. No more stocking the store! Now it is a random offering the rarely includes items you need. No relocators, other than the random one, of which you get multiple offerings in one go. Only 2 hour shields! Devs, you have so muffed it. How people are meant to get to bunkers etc and back is a mystery to me, not to mention CC and SvS. We just won’t participate, and get zeroed because we can’t shield ourselves! Dead state after dead state!
WHEN IT ASKS WHICH STATE TO JOIN, JOIN AN OLDER ONE!
miszfreckle5 - 6 month player
Iv been playing for a little over 6 months this game has started stuffing up its not loading and u constantly need to upgrade not only upgrade but when you try to get into the game it continues to say upgrade resources even tho it’s upgraded it always wants to be upgraded more to the point you can’t even play the game I was a loyal player and paid abit of money as well on hero gear and other items for it to now start stuffing up what a joke
It’s every day updates are added and everyday for the past week I havnt been able to use the game because of resource updates and upgrades that went even happening iv lost out on so much already I don’t really see the point in continuing
less than30 charectr - This game is great
I love this game because it’s great quality. It’s also not packed with ads. Another reason is, it isn’t just fight and kill it has a story. As you are playing and about to fight it tells you if it’s worth it or not.i love this game because it keeps me waiting for the next mutation or level up. I look forward to playing this game in the future, I haven’t got far into the game so I don’t know how great it is further into the game but so far it fantastic
STAMPISASCAM - P2W + fake ads
The game does a lot to keep you invested early on, but later you will realise the flaws. I grinded to 14 mil power, so I know. This game is a huge money sink. Game devolves into x has more power than y, therefore x wins. minimum strategy. Biggest clans (pay to win clans) on the server will control everything and everyone. You will just have to sit there and watch your smaller alliance burn to the ground because you are massively outranked. The gameplay is literally upgrade simulator. Gameplay in the mobile advertisements is the fakest thing I’ve ever seen.. lying like that shouldn’t even be allowed. Devs really need to make the game fairer for smaller alliances, add more strategy that isn’t just “I have more power than you, I auto-win”.
Rock95_ - Good game, but do not expect any help from support
I have been playing this game for more than 2 years and the recent migo world event has shown the level of support and care for their players. Overall it is a fun game, but if u ever have any trouble with this game, forget any sort of help from the support.
Despite no announcements from the game, the developers will happily change requirements as per their fancy and when u get in touch with them to try to resolve ur problems, they will happily show u the door.
Poor customer support and lacking empathy for players (i cannot stress enough not to spend ur money on this game. There are far better games that actually treat u well with the amount of hours and money u put in).
a silly spender - For anyone who wants to play this game. Sincerely advice DO NOT do it
The game has the worst developer team. Always sending out misleading information about events. For example in the billboard they said the event end by today but they will end the event by yesterday for no reason. They literally did not give any reason for doing any change. The support team does not exist. When you actively report any issue to them they don’t respond you at all. Not even a “sorry we will work it out”. They offer you every chance to spend money but they don’t care if you gain your reward or not. If you have spare money for the game. Please do not spend cause you are just a cash cow for them. You will get 0.
Chrism163 - Great graphics, but that’s about it...!
I read the reviews and thought that surely it cannot be that bad, but it is. It is probably the most blatant “pay to win” game I have experienced.
The story line is average and you just seem to keep paying more money to achieve levels.
You have to join an alliance or you cannot get past L10, unless you pay of course....
Once in an alliance you will get attacked time and time again, by other more powerful alliances, but I have yet to work out why? So people spend more time attacking each other than getting rid of zombies, which is the theme.
Finally seen the light and deleted it.....
aswdfgzyyn - The games is awesome
Hey dudes this game is awesome btw you should add a couple more things into the game like allowing friends to play with you so they can modify your base and all that awesome stuff yeah that’s all I wanted to say also thank you you have made a fun game for me to play when I’m board and also I don’t know if you know I gave you game 5/5 stars yeah that’s all I wanted to say If you can reply please tell me if you liked my idea that I you for making this game
rsock63 - Expensive and Full of regular bullying
The game graphics are awesome and the game play is great, BUT two issues: 1. You need to be prepared to spend LOTS of MONEY to get anywhere at a reasonable pace. 2. There are no limits on who you can attack. A L16 has no chance against a L 40. So that unless you spend money to avoid SLOWLY trying to build up (especially after L11), bigger alliances DESTROY everything you’ve PAINSTAKINGLY built up. You loose days of effective gameplay. It happens often enough and regularly enough that it feels like you and your NEW alliance is being RAP_ed and any money spent was just a waste. This game got two stars. No value for money at all.
Heavens fury - Very bad customer service
I have been playing this game for ages. Met a lot of nice people and if you have the money to spend it’s a good game. Been spending quite a bit but I was not getting the items that I was buying since an update. Told customer service and they where not helpful at all. They fixed up the last three purchases and that was it. Customer service just ignored everything else. They brushed off the bug I reported and basically told me too bad. For a game that relies on they’re players to fund them it’s really bad. If you can stay away or at least don’t buy anything. The customer service reps needs new jobs u think because they are really bad at it.
Michelle1978 - Only play if you have money to spend to expand quickly
Why does the game allow someone to be coninually attacked? Especially when that person is offline and in my case asleep. Ive been playing this game to take my mind off things and this game allows those who have had the opportunity to play for longer or use more money to destroy and ruin your effort and the experience of those who just are here for fun.
The game allows those who are much stronger to attack weaker active players and multiple times within a short space of time. The game then offers some support for a price.
So unless you’re willing to spend up big in this game don’t waste your time.
El Hallak - More improvements
This game is so much fun but there should be a bird where you can do it first person perspective and kill zombies with 80 for the Mount of going to collect over missions there should be three slots with healing spot as well and this game is very excellent but I like games like this with surviving zombies attacks it is very fun in multiplayer section as well it just needs able to play at section as well overall I love this game but it could use one more character who is better than Sarge.
Jaded!! - How to take away the fun of playing... get attack by someone with 10x ur power!!🤬
Have been playing for 57 days now and enjoying the game BUT I have seen 22 players from my alliance leave or become inactive ( we only had 45 when I started) because they were attack and destroyed by players at much higher level. Tonight just had a alliance player with 3.2 M in battle power be destroyed by another player with BP 32.5 M.... how the hell is that fair? The game already favours the top 20 alliances, why do they want to take away the fun this game could offer to those who just want to have a bit of fun? You need to lift your game SOS and make the game fun and fair for all... not just the top 20!!
Jamesy McFamesy - Good but needs serious optimization
EDIT: the game runs even worse after the last couple of ‘optimisation’ updates. Game quits on me approximately every 3-5 minutes. Crazy memory leak happening somewhere.
[review] Good core concept and typical build and battle game with a million things to do and click on. Some of this means a lot of double handling and clicking relentlessly through the same old tired processes but the activities are generally pretty fun. The worst thing is the optimization for older devices - the game constantly quits, freezes, forces reloads. Drives me crazy. This is repeatable on a bunch of my older devices: iPhones, iPads.
anna.t8532 - It’s actually really good
I love it heaps and I’ve never really played a game like it, I’m still getting used to it but I absolutely love theirs options for everything, you don’t have to wait days to progress you can always do something and you can speed up the timers which is just so good, it is a little bit confusing to understand but I’m getting there!! I love how much this game company cares about their players ❤️❤️
Sevam00 - Network problem in ios
Always after new update arrives..after updating i get network problems..it tells me to reconnect everytime..sometimes I can’t event login..while other applications work quite good..and i really find it annoying..btw im ios user..dont know if andriod user have the same problem or not..you guys need to take a look at this problem..
Twinturboboxer - Needs bugs fixed
The game is good and all, but it crashes multiple times in minutes. Evening changing it from 60fps to 30fps did nothing to stop it crashing. It happens anytime/all the time. As soon as it needs to think; babaaaaaam.
Also, can you change the limit of stamina? Build a gym or something where troops can train but also increase your stamina limits.
But please please please fix the crashing issue!!!!!! Sort that out and I’d be happy to give you 5 stars!
Yogic! - Appalling customer service
I’ve recently submitted a bug report where there was a complete lack of understanding for the developers for the situation. ‘My concerns have been noted’. My request for the compensation of biocaps for ‘non revived’ troops from State V’s State has been completely ignored. I lost a considerable amount of troops, which were not automatically revived at the end of the stage. I had 79% of these troops, including the 10% from the med packs purchased with biocaps.
Customer service responds with the same cookie cutter template, with no concern for their customer base. Developers will just expect you to ‘forgive and forget’
Turbo936826 - Be careful
This game started off really well, fun and achievable but the developers are now focus on money and only money. The only way to start levelling up in the game is by spending money for materials and resources, that was easy achievable by events and scoring system. But now they focus on encouraging players to start purchasing bundle package from in game to level up your chief and all their gear upgrades, hero’s and all their upgrades, troops and buildings, on the materials and resources they restricted in the game. I am starting to lose interest in this game due to the developers not listening for feedback and only focusing on new states and players. Be very careful on of this game.
casasdfghjk - Moving State
I hope we can move to different state even if we are on a higher level. The first time I played this I have no idea so I didn’t know we can move different state at the early game. Now i’m stuck on this state that didn’t speak english so I keep on translating it and can’t join traps since it’s totally different time frame from them and sometimes it would be 2am and can’t participate. If we can move to other state where we want (like state that is from my country so time to traps is not hard) that would be so great. I hope you can do something about it.
Metlmetl - Kill event ruins game
The game is alright - you kind of just have to work out how to play yourself - 6 months on and still finding out new stuff.
but could be better if there was a limit on how higher levels could only attack a couple of levels below them. And currently there is a kill event that is ruining the whole game because if you leave your peace flare then you get ra-ped by higher levels - and even your gathering troops get attacked. So basically for a Lower level like me and my whole alliance there is ZERO game play for the next day and a half. Great way to ruin a whole game.
Russ2475 - Endless grind
It’s just an endless grind with events and challenges that are just geared to bleed your bank account. 2weeks to upgrade your HQ then upgrade every other building then it all starts again. And while your grinding you’re lucky if PTW players don’t turn up and burn your settlement to the ground. It’s repetitive with the same old challenges with a slightly different tag line. If you have money to burn you’ll be fine. If you don’t spend big go nail your hand to a table it’ll be less painful
jolly rancher hick - Stay Away
Worst game out… allowing cyber bullying to happen within the game… report it all, you get back “ it’s a war game it’s expected “, no there are laws to prevent that stuff like that, including online gaming.. State 341 is the worse for it, Dirty Dave is nothing but a bully, including his drop kicks Mazenblueguy, iFrankenstein, oh the all time favourite bully of our state is Rylar, power does strange things, guess useless in the real world.. my advice don’t allow your children to play this game, or anyone in fact… just opening up to a world of nasty, because kings group don’t care.. because they allow it to happen…. STAY AWAY from this game..!!!!
Stoneio - Good game but terrible customer care
Fun addictive game with great graphics. However customer care don’t look after you.
I lost a week of building troops, building, research and a major event etc because a rally full of my best troops and hero’s disappeared during a server crash. Being a player that spends money, you’d expect some kind of help to get you back up to speed but all I received was silly automated messages from the devs
Which were no help at all. I updated my game, deleted and reinstalled and nothing fixed the issue.
Look after your customers guys!
xBrandon24 - This game is awesome.
This game is so much fun, I love being able to build my own base and decorate it while collecting resources, upgrading my crew and taking down the infected. And the cherry on top is each has full voice acting which gives us more of a connection with the characters. Great character design btw and i enjoy the music that plays throughout, it really fits a zombie apocalyptic lifestyle, great work guys.
Robyn6045 - Very addictive
This is a great game to play, always something to do. But be prepared to spend money. The best heroes cost you money. And there are glitches and problems that need to be fixed. I purchased 4 packages that never arrived in my account. Support has basically just ignored my complaint. Not good enough considering this game would be making developers a lot of money. Taking players money and not following through on complaints of missing items is poor customer service.
rylstone#1 - Best game
I love this game and I think it’s absolutely perfect though I am in a group with 2 others and it’s really hard to level up the alliance I would really appreciate it if we had unlimited upgrades that doesn’t cost caps but other than that I recommend this game it is great hopefully this happens because I’m still on level 1 alliance with 2 others. Thanks!
Napalm sticks to kids - Good but needs some features
I have been play the game for a week pretty fun but I would recommend having shops to sell your items and buy others because I have a stock of stuff I don’t need and It would be great to be able to then buy from others you already have a good store system just need to make it so you can see and buy from others. Other wise good game still needs some touch ups tho.
xxN1gh7mar3_xx - It's amazing!
There was a game called kiss of war and I played that for a while but it just got boring but now I love this game so so much it's fun and I like the animations of when the zombies drop after you kill them. I suggest to everyone to get this incredible game you'll love it! Thank you to the creators of this game for giving me something to do for a while, thank you for making this game
Rynixiam - Awesome game
I am loving this game, I would love to see a bio added to the personal accounts so Alliance members can get to know each other better. I also think that a water supply feature would be beneficial as to add to the whole survival story as it is an essential requirement to survive. Overall a fantastic game and my fellow alliance members would love to see some of these features added
steambaby - Support for game play on mobile
Please do something about the game crashing constantly when playing on mobile, it becomes very frustrating when you are trying to lvl up or unlock and it can’t support you when you go to the world map. Please please do repair this problem as the game does not work well on mobile
Itz_Frost Biten - Don’t buy... you’ll just get cyberbullied
This game was OK at the start, but then you get cyberbullied over and over again by being attacked by stronger alliances. It’s really heartbreaking to see all the effort you put in and just to have it get destroyed is a terrible feeling. Even if this event hasn’t happened to you, it WILL happen one day if you keep on playing. In summary, if you would like to feel depressed then buy this game and spend thousands of dollars on it :] (not a good thing) In summary, don’t buy this app, all it does will make you feel frustrated, mad, sad and many other things.

Best Survival Game
101killcode101 - Username - Killcode_Grim. R
I purchased an $69.99 - ($79.09) top up package and the game wouldn't give me the items and they took the money but I contacted Apple and they couldn’t do anything about it because the game is trying to charge me 2 times for a 1 time only purchase package??? I’ve tried contacting the services for the game but they haven’t done anything besides tell me to go to the game guild or too send a receipt and I have sent them the receipt multiple times and the game hasn’t done anything.🤬😡
Berserk X - Avoid this game. Charged incorrectly
I purchased some roulette chips in game for $6.99 and I was charged $55.34. I filed a ticket in game and submitted all information requested. Customer support keeps on using template responses that asks me for the same time. I asked what was I missing and they provided another set of instruction for pretty much the same. After days of waiting, the gave me a reply saying the items are spent and basically called me a liar. Watch your payments careful. I do not trust this game anymore.
oof master 420 - Good twist on a Terrible genre
This game is similar to all the other build food train troops and attack people games but with a twist. This game has an actual good story and playable missions that really make the game a new step in the right direction, and I hope the devs will continue work on this so that it can get even better.
the best part is that the ads aren’t misleading
Jeredna - Loading
After the new update it loads the main screen then after that it freezes and I can’t play the game I rebooted my iPad twice and still the same...can’t play
Gottya987654321 - Scamming extra payments when purchasing packs
DONT TRUST THIS GAME SITE
Several times now when purchasing a $6.99 pac I have also been charged for a $13.99 pac. Have messaged help desk multiple times and have not received credits.
AJv1005 - Be careful of purchases
I bought a simple $6.99 bundle and found 6 google purchases for $90 made the same day. Never had an issue before this purchase, was well established in the game but had to quit due to this
Jctgwfa - Zero support
It’s great, because there’s people who bully you in game, and then nothing you can do about it! Because support offers no help! How fantastic! Report it to your state governor? Who do you think the bully is?! Super bad attitude by 98% of the players. Also, the game is essentially unplayable due to bugs.
Leilani arnaz - False advertising
This game advertises as playing first person in ads but it's just menu driven game. You're not a character. Very misleading
AbbygailF - New update sucks !!!!!
Change it back to the way it was. You’re going to lose a lot of players this way!
Hagabas - Game is good but
As all the other survival games low level guys getting harassed by the high level. I guess that’s the only thing high level people can do probably their afraid to fight another high player. That’s sad
i want a sniper - This game is insulting games
I get a notification it is in a different language I am a Canadian .help person disappears often. there is glitches in the game .It is too long to get to stanchion from Stanchion . If that was not in the game it would be a 10 out of 10 game
captainmaintenance - They cheat you
Game is fun; however, they frequently cheat you on purchases. Often you don't get bonuses when you purchase a pack...when you try to get tech support to look into it, they seem clueless. From my perspective tech support doesn't even play game as they appear to know not much about it.
토토탄쉽 - 재미있긴해요
근데 뭔가 좀 더 내가 직접 플레이 하는 느낌이 있으면 좋겠어요
Abenne04 - Fun game
Fun game. Easy to get rewards.
Mr noname sir - Don’t play this game
I played this game for about 4 months. I enjoyed the game overall, it’s your typical pay to win game, they are always trying to get you to spend money. I purchased a few of their in app purchases which went fine. But, after one update I purchased another in app purchase and never received it. After 3-4 days of lip service from their support and absolutely NO response from the technical support I finally had to have Apple refund my money.
So please read the other reviews that have also had issues receiving support for in app purchases.
Torso45 - What a joke.
Still getting random crashes from the game, they did get better for a short while. Don’t spend $ they keep moving the goal line ( level 30hq was max then came 3stars (lv33) and now we are on 5stars(lv35)), and won’t do anything for you when you tell them about problems in game. Also they have increased how much it takes to get plasma(needed for upgrading building with stars 31-35 currently) I always get a template response from customer service which never addresses the problems. This is a pay to play game don’t be fooled. The only reason I am still playing is because of my alliance members. They recently released an update with several issues, then had to release a update for the update less than 24 hours later and it’s not even in the store yet and this isn’t even the first time this has happened.
Killorder - Overcharging for purchases
I purchased a custom crate for $13.99 but when my credit card purchase alert came through on my phone, I was charged $63.22. I immediately submitted a ticket with customer service and it’s been several days now without a response to even acknowledge there is an issue or that they’ll look into this claim. Guess I’m making a claim with my CC company and not making anymore purchases in what otherwise is a pretty decent game
BenjyQc - Pay system
I like the game and the start but its a pay to win... like all mobile game. At first you can play w/ buying packs but when you are at 30Million and people have 100Million you are wrecked. Also, the packs are 6,99$ and they don’t give you a good advantage; 6,99$ for 10 fragments when you will need 30 or 50 for ONE upgrade... thats not it. They should change the pay system cause it ruins people who don’t pay 👎
thewardo - Not worth the money
On top of all the scams the developpers use to get your money, if you’re not willing to shell out the big bucks you won’t stand a chance. Also, the makers of the game pay people to basically play and recruit and dominate maps. Your time and money is better spent anywhere else!! Crooks.
Mermaidddddddd - Charged me twice for one bundle
I had to get it refunded through Apple.
Watch out ppl who spend money in this game! Check your statements!!
Soroush2012 - Stay away they steal your money
I accidentally purchased wrong packages and contacted them for reversing the transaction and they refused to do that! Stay away!
me12344123 - Terrible moderators
Game is just stupid, moderators writing in state chat, you don’t know who they are, you report 18+ subjects by the moderators in state chat multiple times, no action taken from the developers. Enough said.
rogerskillmenow - Worst customer service ever
Save your money
Zerokool40 - Pay money or play all your life
The game is repetitive .... it really is addictive but the deal is that you really aren’t in control as much as the gam3 suggests you are.l.. over all... probably the best game on iPhone or iPad... sadly.
Pradoc - Pay-to-win!
Most casual gamers never get competitive enough in these kind of games to hit the paywall. But the moment anyone does, you have to make the decision of dropping hundreds of dollars on a game where the developers spent nowhere near the effort and money that AAA developers put into their games. Except AAA developers usually only charge you once and it ranges between 50 and 80 dollars.
No joke, if you want to be competitive with the top players, you have to spend as much as they do and they spend hundreds to thousands of dollars on the last 5 tiers of Chief Gear and the last tier of Hero Gear.
The game would be fine otherwise if the free-to-play crowd could at least grind for that gear. But you just can’t, it must be bought.
Like most P2W games, the casual gamer reviews do not reflect the reality for players that actually play the game
This is not a 4 star game. It’s a 1 star game because Kings Group doesn’t allow a fair and balanced playing field. To add insult to injury, their occasional survey doesn’t mention pay-to-win as a possible issue players might hate about the game. So clearly they’re not interested in ever fixing the imbalance.
Do yourself a favor and don’t download this game.
Burnt Butthurt - Meh
tinashshdhd - Awful!!
this is the worst game I have ever seen! Dude!! It try’s to take ur money!! NEVER PLAY THIS!
ThatActualReview - Garbage
The ad is nothing like the gameplay, and the gameplay itself is just another one of those poor city builders. Don’t expect a cool strategy zombie shooter - because it’s not
Foz132 - Pay to win
The game itself is not bad but once you reach high level you hit pay walls. If you don’t pay you can’t compete.
If you want to pay you will pay. It would cost me $540.00 just to upgrade my gear once (there are two more upgrades after that). And that’s just chief gear, not taking into account heros and hero gear. Rediculous.
jezzie403 - New update killed the game!!
With the limited alliance help, terrible map and what they have done in the workshop it is terribly disappointing after spending months of time and money in this game :(
nasinya - Suggestion
This isn’t a big problem, but all of the characters are white and it would be great to have some diversity.

johnny 2 good - Can’t Advance without spending a lot of money
From levels 1 to 17 you can progress relatively easy. After that it slows down a lot unless you are willing to spend a lot of money like the whales do.
You need to be in a top alliance to advance to be getting rewards to give your settlement improvements. Without these rewards you can not get stronger but the top players tend to get more of these free rewards so you still can’t advance unless you pay for micro transactions to make you powerful real quick.
In my alliance the whales were spending $250 to $500 dollars a day - yes - a DAY!!!! And during events they were easily dropping around $2000.
This allowed them to advance far beyond what I ever could and it pushed me out of doing events where I couldn’t get certain rewards to advance my gear so I’m pretty much stuck.
The game mechanics are too focused on the micro transactions to allow whales to win and keeps out free to play players.
Why Keep playing? I don’t. I quit and deleted the app.
Wihauk - Game play
It’s a lot of fun
Shazzert - Way better than other survival games
