Cradle of Empires Reviews


Best Game Ever!  Eminemilee  5 star

I've been searching my whole life for a game like this! I always said i could get into those matching games if I was matching to build a city! It's like they read my mind! I recommend this to anybody who enjoys city building games and match-3 games!


The shake method  Cvwf66  4 star

I'm the last update, we are now supposed to be able to shake the phone to get out rent from the buildings. I have an iPhone 7, and I have to shake hard for it to do anything.


Great game!  73melody  5 star

Very addictive!


Meme  Avoidingcupid  3 star

Like the game but it is misleading. If I go to a specific place looking for a specific item and I complete the round I should get what I can for not 29 of the items I already have.

Love it  Deborah Crayton  5 star

Great game


Takes WAY too long to get collection items  NettieD72  2 star

How am I supposed to build the ship when I have to play levels 687 times to try and get the collection items and still come up empty? And this new autumn portal? Why does it cost players their resources to play them?? It shouldn't cost anything. About ready to uninstall which is a shame because it is a well put together game but so frustrating when you have to play over and over (times infinity) and get nothing.

Since I downloaded on my iPhone how do you store all of your items even your levels


Empire  watergoddess61  5 star

The game is confusing on advancing further levels. Then by gathering more stars you begin to understand that is how you advance. I guess l expect instructions to be articulated better.

Quite addicting  Angiessister  4 star

I've been enjoying the game very much. I like all the challenges. This includes matching with skeletons, without color, and in the circle of light. The variety of goals is interesting, too. I find it frustrating that it takes so many tries to receive an artifact. I've been working on the boat construction for ages! Regardless, I'm quite addicted to the game. It is a calming distraction and relaxing to play just before bedtime.


Good puzzle quest game however..  TinyKarz84  2 star

This game is interesting but the more you advance (as it requires), it requires more energy. Limited energies are earned. So you have to wait long hours to refuel. You loose each energy each time you play. It's not like usual app games that you spend those energies, if you loose then you loose it. If you were successful with the quest, you move foward without losing energy. Also, some games have infinite life once a week, usually weekends. Or bonus infinite life for certain hours. Why I'm tempted to just delete this game cuz it's such a tease. Leaves me frustrated


Empires  Seang3078$  4 star

I like the game a lot it's actually quite addicting. You're only thing I could suggest is that you could see a score or items you won well you're playing the board.


Great!  Hollyjo32  5 star

Very stimulating!


Fun game  Twinsplustwomom  4 star

Really enjoy this game


Awesome  SparkleUnique  5 star

Keeps me interested. Always something new to do...many levels and challenges....I just wish I had all the time in the world to play...I think I am addicted!


Mrs  heatbeavers  1 star

Thinking about not playing anymore. Have to play level more than 5 times to get the items you need to complete quest or collections. Too much of a problem. I think I'm done


Game needs improvements  DM336  1 star

Too many quests on the left to complete. Unable to collect necessary items to complete groups. Play each game and do not win the necessary items. As u advance levels become more difficult to win and use too much energy. Women quests require sending gifts to "friends" which you can't get anyone to play long enough to have any! Interesting concept of the game, just need to "win" more of the items needed to move forward in game!


A diamond in the Rough  LaLa2856  5 star

I love this game it's fun the graphics are great and it's just challenging enough to keep you interested, not too easy but you are able to achieve your goals. Excellent game


I love this game but it won't connect to the internet!  lilyhorsegirl45  4 star

I have been playing this game for two years now and it still keeps my interest! The only thing I get frustrated with is I can only play it at my house on my wi-fi it will not work on other wi-fi connections! I want to play my game more but I can't! Other than that love this game!!
