  • Great look, great characters, great game. Sep 30, 2020

    By Catawba Claw
    Early days but I’m blown away. If this is the direction that PVP card games are headed it’s exciting to think of what will come down the road. I’m surely getting way ahead of myself but it’s hard not to think about what’s next. The battlefield set up is unique, imaginative and filled with nuance that sets it apart from the big names in this category. I’m not a huge fan of change so at first glance the orientation of the battlefield filled me with a slight feeling of dread, but that was quickly dispatched as I played. It’s incredibly early days and we all have seen things pop up later out of nowhere that can kill the fun and I have no doubt things will show up in this game as well which means the game is only as good as developers and how they react when stupid happens and so we will wait and see. Right now I love it and this early in the game playing I hold off on reviews but I had to declare my love that I hope doesn’t make me look like an idiot later.

    Excellent game my only retort was that this pop up appeared to take away my entering the game. Much to my opponents good fortune they whilst survive for the time being. The 2v2 mode is familiar yet different. Truly fantastic. I would recommend the game just for the 2V2 although it unlocks further into the game. The units are unique in my opinion. Easy to fall in love with. Hoping I get noticed so I can get my Death theme started early xD

    Both fun and FRUSTRATING. Game is NOT balanced. In the first season, it was good. Then at the end of the season they gave me a massive number of trophies, bumping me up way too high and now I'm constantly pitted against players with higher level cards, and I can't drop back down to have fair games.

  • Sooo good. Oct 11, 2020

    By BombzzzzzZzzz
    I personally was a big time Clash Royale player. I uninstalled it awhile ago because of how redundant and boring it got playing the same decks over and over. Arcane showdown has come through with the perfect balance. No matter the deck if you do not manage and utilize the rest of the playing field you will lose. Makes every match incredibly exciting and new. It’s not just playing counters and building pushes. All in all from the design to the actual gameplay this game is a 10. My only complaint ! And this goes for all these games..... lower the chest timers...or give an additional locksmith!!! I want to play more without waiting on timers and feeling like I’m missing out on card unlocks. We are playing video games and as a community it was never about the money, it was about the game.

    When i started playing this game i really enjoyed playing.however this is one expensive game to play. The match making system isnt great. And it appears a number of players are using macros to cheat which is totally ruining the game as well. Player base needs expanding desperatley but if they dont fix the problems with matchmaking they will lose new players very quickly

  • Fun but WORST Season Pass in ANY Game I’ve seen!! Oct 8, 2020

    By CandyNJ
    I have to subtract 3 stars for the single WORST Season Pass I’ve seen in ANY game in iOS AppStore & Google!! Brawl Stars, Clash of Clans and Call of Duty Mobile have excellent Season Passes for Free to play folks. They actually give you pretty good rewards! Arcane Showdown barely gives you anything for their Free season pass and that is too bad because this is a fun game! Also worth noting is the outrageous price of the Locksmith! He is literally $9.99 and is NOT permanent only lasts 7 days! This is ridiculous! As has been echoed by others, you will enjoy the game for a brief period until it becomes extremely obvious that you WILL start to lose miserably to others unless you obtain certain cards. You possibly could get some of the meta cards but would take 6 months for F2P folks. By that time, new cards will have come out. Basically, the people who spend the most money will have the most fun and dominate. I enjoy the 2v2 duels plus maps. If the developers can stop being greedy and develop a worthy Season pass AND stop being so incredibly greedy. They are catering to the whales. Auto chess games require 0 purchase and take strategy at least.

    Spent money on this game and was enjoying it. Got a new phone and when I reinstalled the game it couldn't find my account. Contacted customer service and got no help at all. I'll never install apps from this company again. What a waste of time. Install apps from a company who cares about their paying customers!

    The game is dope until you reach a certain level after that, you need real money to make it. You get matched with o.p. opponents then its down hill. Womp womp. 2/5/21: I tried to hang on but unfortunitely in order to suceed in this game you need real money to get ahead and this game seems like its either that or just dont play

  • Rigged trash Feb 3, 2021

    By Hskcyrnsidnsjdmdudbal
    I can’t wait for this absolutely worthless game to die and for the developers to go bankrupt. Because you can’t balance matchmaker, because you have such a steep pay to play ecosystem, because your game is filled with bots and a discord server where you NEVER EVEN READ THE COMMUNITIES THOUGHTS OR SUGGESTIONS!!! I’m so sick and tired of playing a match and losing because my “teammate” couldn’t figure out we needed to take the last bit of HP on the bottom lane to win the match. Come to find out by checking everyone’s guilds in the results screen, THEYRE ALL FAKE ACCOUNTS!!! So the match is literally rigged against me with a garbage “teammate” and over powered enemies to deny me progression in the game. You ungrateful garbage developers don’t deserve the minuscule player base that you have left. And you won’t be getting any revenue for much longer. Dead game and a complete waste of time.

    At first the game is fun. But when you hit the next tier they are waaaay over powered. Be prepared to get stuck unless you of course spend money.

  • Clash Royale only better Dec 14, 2020

    By Uhhhhhhabcdefg
    Stop complaining about games that cost money! Yes, this game is a bit Pay to Win, but all games worth playing are these days. You don’t complain about paying for a console and $60 per game. Even those games ask for more money. This game is good. It’s developers are active and attentive to community opinions, which isn’t common. The last patch made the game much more interesting and I anticipate the future patches to continue to make the game better based on player feedback. I love this game and have played for 3 months. I pay for the season pass and splurged a couple times to get stupid things like emojis I didn’t need to win. I win very often and don’t feel like I have to pay a stupid amount to compete.

  • Amazing, Fantastic, Shmackin Oct 10, 2020

    By Stoney boi
    This game has so much potential to become a top free game and a top game in the App Store. I say this because everything about it is so different and I’m loving it. The different characters and rune upgrades and leveling system and mana mines and hero’s and wow. If this game can successfully pull off a good clan wars I think it would be a game changer!!! I’m thinking of something of the lines of cod ghosts clan wars, obviously change it up but the aspect that they had clans capturing game modes real time and competitively wanting to skip school for a gamesome would make this go coo.

  • Great game but PRICEY! Nov 3, 2020

    By tlflow
    I don’t often take the time to comment on games but this one is REALLY GOOD. It’s pretty fun and I’ve really enjoyed it so far. That being said, the season pass is a tad pricey. I play this game pretty often and I might spring for a pass every now and then but I can’t see me spending $100 for all the passes and buying chests here and there. For those that do, I certainly hope the upcoming content’s worth parting with that kind of cash. I know you don’t HAVE to buy the pass but it’s certainly an advantage if you do. I wish there was a way to even it out without feeling like I’m about to lose an arm and a leg to stay competitive.

    Unsure how I started playing this one as not my usual type of game. I have carried on playing it though as it is an interesting change to my normal Build & Battle or RPG type gaming! This is an easy to pick up and play game for short/longer playing sessions! So far the Freemium/Pay to Play seems balanced & actually feels optional. I would recommend giving this a try. Plays something like an updated Magic The Gathering style battle game. You also join a Guild for helpful advice and extra cards!

    The game is a lot of fun. The matching can be off occasionally making it one sided but the matches are only for a few minutes anyway so you can move on. The real problem is when it has to "reconnect" in the middle of a match. I've had it do this sometimes a few times during the match and sometimes for multiple matches in a row. I've also heard guild mates talk about the same issue. It's not a big deal in the regular matches but it's painful when it happens in a trial match.

  • A good game but that arcane pass... Nov 29, 2020

    By Skorrd
    I’ve been playing Arcane Showdown for about a week now and it is a very solid game. That is coming from someone who has played clash Royale for years. The gameplay is smooth and the units are decently balanced (few tweaks might be a good thing). That being said.. devs .. that arcane pass price .. good lord 20 dollars? I am sorry but that’s a big fat no from me. Lower that to 5 dollars and then fine. I am not shelling out 20 bucks for the thing. The game , otherwise, is quite good.

  • Great game but.... Oct 25, 2020

    By 21Bdawg
    This is an amazing addictive game, but the developers are very greedy. The amount of cards you get per chest is terrible it makes you not want to donate cards. Also why would you have the locksmith work only 7 days for 1 week! Why not just make a whole slot or two to buy permanently. I made the mistake of buying the locksmith for a week thinking it would be another permanent slot like many other games have done but was fooled when I realized it only speeds up the chest for 7 days... Lastly why would charge 20$ for one season pass! That is absurd and I will not be spending any further money until the developers change their greedy take on this game and genre.

    Enjoyable game. A bit slow to grind without paying, and sometimes the robot it matches you against are overpowered comparatively (cards 4 or 5 levels higher), but otherwise depends more on strategy than brute force. Update: changes to the game are making it hard to enjoy. Match-up between players vary as much as 10 levels or more, making one side severely disadvantaged. Favors swarm pkay, over strategy now. So much for skill over volume.

  • They figured it out...ads Jan 5, 2021

    By finsky27
    First let me say I like this game and have spent $40 for two more than worth of "Arcane Pass" The most annoying part is that you have to watch ads to open bonus chests...which anyone who plays will do! Smart but also annoying for anyone that despises ads...which is basically everyone. Good game design except you can't see whole field of play without moving a a bit and since last patch became much harder for some reason...maybe before was just less people paying to play?

    I really like the game, except for the season pass. The season pass is extremely expensive, in fact the most expensive season pass I've seen so far. I hope the DEVs reconsider the season pass price. Even top tier games have season pass between 5$ to $15. Update: The Gap between free to play users and people who actually pay for every single item in game is getting wider each season. Playing a card game where you must level up the cards has its consequenses.

    Has a lot of potential. This game has a lot of fun factor but is bogged down by the poor score and matchmaking system. Be prepared to be out matched most of your battles as the paying customers come and remove any enjoyment from the game. When the season resets, all of the high level paid customers will be in the same pool as you. I recommend adding more tiers to start of the season to prevent mismatched player card levels.

  • Like the game but is very one sided Feb 7, 2021

    By hate pay to win games
    Update: been playing for a few months, and once you get to a certain level there is no winning because you are matched against decks that are 5 or more levels above yours or they are a paid for deck and their lower level units beat your higher level units. It is very aggravating and demoralizing to get steam rolled every single match. Like this game but it can be very one sided to the players who pay. You can be matched with players way above your level making it impossible to win. The curated decks are terrible, where you would think it levels the playing field it does not. The decks are not evenly matched and some are down right terrible. The graphics are good tho

  • pay 2 win Jan 14, 2021

    By Skebo5150
    This could have been a good game, but this is really a game of the haves and have nots. The matchmaking for battles doesn’t nothing to separate new free play users from those players that have been paying in for months and have units that are 10 or more levels higher than your own. This disparity is even worse at the beginning of each season, when everyone’s score gets reset and these high level players are now seemingly the same level as the new players. If you are looking for a giant beat down on a daily basis, then maybe this is the game for you. I give it 2 stars, because the gameplay is actually pretty good.

    Bleak- Some matches are woefully outmatched. Get your fruit basket handed back to you before you even know what hit you. Right, open a ticket, no more needs said. Guess I'll get ignored there like here. As well as be disconnected like when I'm in middle of a battle. As if the excuse would not be obvious & lay blame on my internet connection when my other devices & their apps are not being disconnected or showing interference in any way shape or form. Just fix the problem & tell me when its done.

  • ANOTHER ad heavy, pay to win game. Oct 7, 2020

    By Terry1972Adams
    Like so many other games in this genre, if you want to win you have to pay. You CAN play the game without purchasing packs, but you WILL quickly fall behind on the power and variety of cards you need to be competitive. Expect an initial short period where it will be even with your opponents. Start moving up at all and you find yourself fighting against opponents with much better cards that are way more advanced then your own. And there is nothing you can do against pay to win people. So, fun for a bit but unless you invest money you will get frustrated.
