  • Bugged on hard core Aug 29, 2018

    By dasdaguy
    So I set it on hard core playing as the U.S. after I shot the last nuke on the last enemy territory the game sort of froze in place. I could see everything and even attack I just couldn’t rotate the globe. So I turned it off and reopened it. It let me rotate the globe but there was no one on the map but me as the U.S. and now I don’t get to claim my victory...:( please fix this. It’s a great game I would love to see some expansions as well. Potentially the ability to actually cause damage to the earth itself? Maybe ground troops to invade nearby countries? There’s a lot of potential

    Great game. "Would you like to play a game?" 😂 However I've rated 3 stars as the continue saved game does not work. A game takes a while and requires focus, so not being able to resume a game in action is bad. If you leave the app running in background and go back to it it's fine. Also I won the game and it froze, gutted as I started as NK hard mode. I've posted the same review in the free version as I guess it's the same.

  • Fantastic game to spend 15 minutes on.. or hours. Feb 27, 2018

    By You'llnevertakemealivecoppers
    Love this game, but wanted to let the dev know I encountered a strange bug. I was playing as North Korea trying to get the Oceania achievement and I had captured every single territory on the map except the final piece of Australia, which was held by what was left of China. So I used my infiltrators to take that spot, it froze for a second, said I unlocked Australia, then was just locked in place. I could fire missiles, use powers, and see that everyone was dead in the diplomacy menu, but I couldn’t move the globe and it wouldn’t say I won. I quit and loaded the save, then it said I unlocked Israel and I could spin the globe, but it still didn’t give me the “You Won” screen, instead I was just able to look around and fire missiles and stuff. It still gave me the rewards in the menu and said I had beaten it with N.Korea, but I just thought it was a strange bug.

  • Really good game. Online play available? Aug 29, 2018

    By lightyearhour
    This is a complex game that is easy and fun to play. I love games like these, where you learn from your mistakes in order to get better next time. I figured out a strategy early on in the game when I lost every match: create pacts first, expand, research with land locked nations, build cruisers until you obtain your super weapons. Once you obtain your super weapons, shift to a more aggressive stance and start your attack! I’m sure others have figured out their own way of success. If I were to make a suggestion, please make online gameplay available or maybe create different modes like team death match, scenarios(build as much nukes before an asteroid hits) etc. really fun concept, really fun game.

  • Needs Final Hour Jul 12, 2017

    By Metthroid
    This game is pretty good I must say, but it is lacking in comparison to its much more advanced twin on PC. There is really no reason why you can't bring Final Hour to IOS, so why not do it? Also, maybe some nerfs and buffs need to be placed in on some of the super weapons. The Cobalt bomb, the Tsar bomb, the Laser Satellite, and the Air Defense Dome are all quite underwhelming when you compare them to the other, much better super weapons. The Stealth Bomber and the Infiltrator are a completely different story, as they are both game winners that your enemy can't do anything about. Basically it's "Tap a country, wait 5 seconds, this country is now dead/in your command, wait 5 seconds, repeat.

    About halfway through the game, it gets to the point that it freezes just as the last country is defeated. No more enemies to eliminate, but no win. There is a button in the menu that appears to allow you to continue a previous game, but it doesn't work. I've lost the progress of the last 3 games I played because of this. Uninstalling and reinstalling didn't work.

    I love this game BUT it doesn't work on my tablet and all of my saved progress gone. Honestly, I'm more upset about it not working on my tablet then anything else. Was looking forward to playing this on a much bigger screen. Issues included, not being able to rotate the globe, not being able to zoom in, not being able to make alliances and so on. I am basically stuck. Very disappointing.

    This used to be my favorite game to play to kill time, and it really keeps you thinking on how to strategize, but I hate how the game doenst save your progress anymore; so if you leave the app, and come back, you have to start all over.

  • Major click fest Sep 25, 2017

    By Jbebop
    Game can be fun but can be infuriating due to it being a click fest most of the time. Basically if you choose a more difficult nation you can expect the computer players to primarily just launch missiles at you and you'll essentially just be clicking to keep your missiles re-upped plus having to defend territories that are building new missiles. It gets annoying. Also there are some end of game bugs where it doesn't record victories or defeats. Lastly sometimes inexplicably you won't be able to defend a site, you touch a territory and its options don't come up and so you just watch the missile hit your territory. All in all not a terrible game but also kind of brain dead clicking.

  • Needs a REAL set of instructions May 1, 2018

    By kevred480
    This game could’ve been so much better, if the developers had simply invested in a real set of instructions. Apparently, they think that their controls are inherently intuitive. But they are NOT. The research option is a specially opaque. I can never tell if I have chosen a research direction, or if it’s just telling me what it’s doing - it’s very stupid. Also, why on earth do you have to do research by each country? It is needlessly complicated. Also, they never explain the controls at the bottom. What did they do? How does it work? Essentially, I am learning the game by trial and error. Or, perhaps I should say that I WAS learning the game that way – I am done now… Waste of money.

  • Suggestion Mar 13, 2018

    By RedSoloZach
    I love this game so much! I’ve been playing this game practically since it came out! There’s always been 2 things that have bugged me however that I thought you might take into consideration. Maybe it was your choice to not have Alaska owned by the US, or maybe you couldn’t make it happen somehow. Either way, I think that would make it harder for Russia, as they are too easy to play as. Also, I think it would really be cool if Hawaii was added as somewhere to expand to, or already be owned by the US. Whether it is accessed through New Guinea, Japan, or the west coast of America is up to you, but I think it would surely spice things up if China, North Korea or Australia could all of a sudden expand into North America through the Pacific! Maybe these suggestions didn’t help, but what I’d like you to know is that I love your game and so do a lot of my friends! Thank you for your consideration!

    Overall the game is fun, controls good, and easy to get used too. I think it would be exciting if they added mutiplayer mode. It wold be great to destroy friends.
  • Very fun game but has flaws Jul 26, 2017

    By Bestbdog11
    I absolutely love playing this game when I have no internet, and it's a great way to pass time. However, there is one issue that you need to fix as it's becoming pretty annoying. Every time I do the objective that unlocks Brazil, when I come back on the game later, it didn't save that objective so I can't play as Brazil. This is getting very annoying, as I'm sick of completing that objective over and over again. Also, if you could add multiplayer, that would be great. But overall, this is a very fun game.

    I like it, but I'd rate 3 stars if I wasn't so nice coz I play hardcore mode all the time and all the nations go after me at the same time, and I think that in reality the nations wouldn't all just stop and go after South Africa or Brazil like come on guys... Also the game crashes sometimes...

  • Good game but needs fixes Dec 13, 2017

    By Beachbear213
    One of my favorite games to play on my phone and the addition of final hour is cool but the hd graphics can get very blurry and sometimes it’s hard to read things and after the update it seems the sensitivity went down and is much more stiff to play maybe an option is to make a setting for it and I also think the game needs a multiplayer mode, maybe by same WiFi connection or even Bluetooth. This is still a great app and the new super weapons are fun to use.

  • Total click fest, not RTS May 13, 2019

    By Psyco Midget
    Game is a little fun, however don’t expect this to be a strategy game with calculated decisions, there’s very little strategy. All you do is click to expand your territory chunk by chunk, and click to launch missiles to defend your chunks. When you have dozens of chunks, it gets real tiring clicking on each one over and over to restock their missiles, just so you can click each one over and over to defend them one by one. All you do is swipe around the globe finding the targeted territory and launching defense missiles. Super annoying, games get boring after 5-10 minutes of doing this. Gameplay is repetitive, little replay value. Glowing reviews, pretty graphics, and a $1.99 price tag made this seem like it was more than it was.

    I really enjoy this game but the very annoying issues do not allow me to give 5 stars. First when you win sometimes the game freezes. Second if you leave a game and try to play again the continue button does not work. Please Fix Your Game!

    Fantastic phone game, but to many bugs that they need to fix it will just freeze up on you without a a second of warning and continue game doesn't work if it did they fixed this game it would easily be 5 stars across the board.

    The game is fun and is easy to understand, but they are some frustrating issues. For example: exiting a game, which should save, only to find that the option to continue said save is gone, pressing "continue saved game" only for the game not to load, and winning a game, but not winning. To elaborate, when all other countries have been defeated, a game summary screen should appear, which will then count your win. Frequently, however, that screen doesn't appear and your work is for nothing.

    Freezes when I get close to winning and win, save game feature does not work. Fix those issues and it becomes a 4.5 star.

    On my Samsung Galaxy 9 it keeps on deleting the save data it will not save any of the data and anytime I get down to one country to go until I actually destroy them all I cannot unite my countries together because of that one country but the game freezes up because some odd reason they will not let me attack the last one to win the game. I do enjoy this game a lot but wasting a whole bunch of time not to win.
