I like it  Really Smh  3 star

Ok to pass time


Awesome Game  PurrPurrHiss  5 star

Great game.

Very Frustrating Game (Nice animation)  Mona Hoffman  2 star

I enjoy a fair challenge and you obviously wish to make money for the work you have invested in your game. Why not charge a fair price, after the customer has played a fair amount of time, instead of "milking" an unfair cost (not "free" and "programmed" for failure) from the customers who play your games and expect a fair return for the money they spend? I have given AWEM more then the value of this game and no longer investing any money that, I feel goes unappreciated. Your updates are terrible, in my opinion, and your responses to your customers repetitively canned and go unresolved. Example: You say patience is needed (I am)...I say "TEDIOUS" which removes the "fun" of playing. 👎🏻

Fun game  CJ's Faith  3 star

I really like this game, but as go up in levels, it cost too much. You use up your energy too quickly, then have to wait for the game to refill. It's either that or spend money. Who can afford that in the day and age?

Love it  Night lass  3 star

I like the game, but it won't let me log onto Facebook. It just freezes.


I see a lot of negative reviews  Chloe&Mar  5 star

I am a new player, so probably not the best to ask. I'm having fun playing this with my granddaughter, she is only 6, but has an amazing grasp for the match 3 games and the special pieces and how they work. So far, no complaints except one. Not sure where to obtain some of the materials needed to upgrade. When I click on them, it would be helpful to know where to find the item and what it is...


Lots of fun  DJLR16  5 star

Excellent graphics & game structure. Highly addictive😊


So far, so good!  Kcvossman  4 star

Just entertained! 😀


Unhappy Longtime Player  Macscake  1 star

This game used to be a lot of fun. Now it is boring and tedious. The game levels are now so hard that players will to have to use the bonuses and spells at least 90% of the time in order to pass a level. If not you are forced to use up all of your energy, the very small amount you accumulate, playing the same level over & over, and therefore you don't make ANY progress. The game is actually rigged to make you fail the levels. I have failed levels with 20 or more turns left because the game was set for you to fail the level. You can't even follow the story lines because it is almost impossible to get the item needed to continue the story. NONE of the story lines make sense, and none ever will because it is almost impossible to obtaining the items you need to continue the story in the order you need. I've been trying to complete the items needed for the same two items for three months! I play every day and one item finally, was rewarded! There is RARELY ever a reward for all of your hard work, which also makes progress virtually impossible. Don't download this game, unless you like monotonous, tedium.


Addictive game  LadyDee009  4 star

Love the game but had to start over when purchased new iPad.


You changed...  Grandmagrapes  3 star

Since the last update I can no longer play the game unless I have wifi. I don't always have wifi, so that limits my playing time. Please put it back so I can play offline.


Cradle of Empires-Review  Iwerm  2 star

Agreed, Awem Studios needs to finish the story, pick up the pace or something. The Game is too prolonged and drawn out. Fun story, but needs improvement,instead of constant match 3 in-games, fold the match 3's into the story more. Otherwise, it gets boring. And you're trying to avoid that.


Why it takes so long to unlock the game?  123bfly123  1 star

I have been dealing with developers for days, trying to fix a lock up telling me that my iPad is not he correct time? What the heck... been playing this game for a couple years. I play it when the mood strikes. I have spent a lot of money. I already had to start over, still not gotten to the level I was. I Guess all they care about is the Money! It's time to find new game... 😡


Awesome,  Cathawk3  5 star

So addicted already!


Having issue  Arngwife210311  1 star

Just started the game and it's locking up after the first tutorial:( I have closed it and restarted the game several times. Guy just keeps saying let's get a little gold and that's it. Will change review if I can actually play the game.


Cradle of empires  Anabel_346  1 star

First they make you pay to play the game and then they make you pay to keep on playing. They continually inundated you with offers to buy energy or jewels. At first I thought it was a really fun game, but now some of the levels are timed or in skull mode and with my very ill husband asking for something or other every few minutes it makes it virtually impossible to play the timed modes. I'm very frustrated that they continually want you to buy something and never give you the artifact you need. So very disappointed . I guess I won't be buying anymore AWEM games as I certainly have not been awed by this game. I reloaded this game and started all over and so far I've not been inundated with offers to buy something so I'm much happier with it than I was before. I'll see how things go and report again.
