  • 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.

    I expected this just to be another Clash royale rip off but in all honesty this game is much ! ore addicting and fun then crash royale could ever hope to be. Graphics are much better, characters are cooler. The only issue is the ranking system to be honest. Takes soo long to rank up but otherwise this game is one of the best mobile games I have ever played besides Call of duty mobile, among us, and a couple of others. I'll update this if I run into any more problems

    It started fun but the quest duels that you get seems like the power levels are imbalanced despite being bumped to lvl 50 for them, example my goblins that I summon die at the hands of enemy goblins every time almost without fail, same troop, same level, same everything, why are the ones I summon dying but the enemies are trucking on through like nothing happened?

  • 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.

    Look it's an ok game and great way to look time. However untill card levels are taken into account hen matching players this will be a pay to win game. Yes spending money is the goal of the game but it is unfair to match players agianst impossible odds. Overall a great game the 2v2 is an amazing experience. Will be interested to see where the game goes.

    It's fun when you run 2s and your random partner actually plays the game. Seeing a trend of players placing the bare minimum to not time out of match. The game needs a reporting system for this type of play. It's really off putting. Getting close to uninstalling for sure

    Unhappy on free gems quest!!! When complete quest for small amount gems successful rewarded but when complete hard/huge gems reward quest it's written successful credited but no gems in account..when seek help support.. they redirect third party which reply by automated boot email says approved your quest will be successful rewarded but waited a week not rewarded..which end in give up. So don't waste time with free gems quest, lesson to learn at this game🐖💨

    Horrible connection - would DC 2 or 3 times every pvp match. Can't win when you're not getting signals for 20 seconds at a time. Also why does it take 10+ seconds to reconnect? Think your game through

    Hey now event in i use 100gem for play. I touch 100gem but it don't work and not show play. And then i 4time touch after show play. After i look my gem in 400 lose. Why?

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 moba like tower defense game. Much more challenging than most games like this and better graphics. The art is fantastic. Gold is hard to come by but not impossible.

    Good game, I played about a month. At first you will have fun and not be hit by the pay wall to fast. After about 4K trophies good luck making it higher. You start to see the pay wall there. Certain cards bought for about 30 to 40 bucks. Good game for a month but if you want to try and be competitive, it’s easy a $100 plus a month dump.

  • 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.

    Love the game but it gets a 3 star rating because i think Grimlys passive should get a buff and there should be a way to report hackers where you send the battle replay with the report so you guys can se if he is hacking or not. Because i fought i guy that used a mana boost

    35$ for season pass.. And there's nothing really new apart from the dragon skin... The prices for purchases are way to expe si e for what you get. It is f2p friendly & not much bugs that's why it gets a 2 star. Just the prices are so bad.. Also the new card added, scorching something, is really bad lol & it is a legendary...

    Money scam, a game that wont get any updates, ad some point you only fight AI. Its not F2P, 20 usd battle pass every month is needed to get gold to progress.
