    Awesome game. Concept, graphics, UI, characters, dialogue, and gameplay are all 5+ stars. Amazing sound effects. Most fun mobile game I've played. Love that the rewards make you feel like you're progressing in the game, so I don't mind spending to help keep it going. Not an overwhelming amount of leveling up that feels like going in circles, just enjoying the ride as you build your teams. So fun! Thanks to the dev's for this app! LOVE it!

  • No more upgrades please Apr 25, 2018

    By icaraven
    Every time they do upgrades it messes everything up. I have been playing this game, believe it or not, for about 2 years. When I first started playing it was about earning trophies and upgrading troops. Now they have so many games and guild activities it’s kind of confusing. They also make it very hard to earn specific items to upgrade your troops. People that have started months ago have better and more troops than I do. Also I must have spent about $100 on this game. I should be a VIP member where I can do anything. But I am only at VIP 4 and Cannot excess the VIP chests. Playing kingdoms at the hardest level should give us the highest talismans not the lowest. And to craft better troops and weapons you have to use 100,000 souls which is impossible to get unless you spend more money. So don’t waste your money on this game because it won’t help you. It is fun to play and I’ve made a lot of friends. Even though they are from different states and countries we have become close and that makes it interesting But all the upgrades and games that they added really slows the game down and causes a lot of problems so I have to keep rebooting the game. They make it more about you spending money to upgrade your troops. If I didn’t become friends with my Guild I would have deleted the game a long time ago.

  • Extremely fun and addicting match-3 Jul 10, 2018

    By MusiqMysfit
    This is my favorite match-3 game I’ve ever played. Well done to the creators. The one thing I ask for now is that they create the option to make it available in portrait mode. Also, it has some stability issues in that it tends to crash when opening. UPDATE: so I’m level 405 now, and I’m having an insanely hard time getting arcane traitstones. I get celestial more often, surprisingly. So I would really love it if some balancing fixes happened, as I’m getting extremely tired of farming. I can farm one Explore mode for 2 days straight and not find ONE arcane traitstone. Also, why can’t I connect my progress to the PS4? I would love to play on there, but I’m not about to completely start over. ANOTHER UPDATE: I’m level 730 now, and I STILL have not uncovered a mythic troop. This is extremely discouraging, especially since I’ve spent actual money on this game in the attempt to get mythic troops. I’ve opened countless chests. It’s getting old. I’ve been playing this game for many many months. I’m certainly not spending another dime. The game is still fun, and I especially like the addition of the daily quests, so I’m not changing the rating. But if I make it to 1000 without a mythic troop, I will stop playing. This is just ridiculous.

    I’m going to start out and tell you this game is fun and very addicting to play, which is why I give it 3 out of 5 stars. There only downfall is the TEAM (guild play). It is important to be on a guild to help you through the process of resources in this game. With that being said all resources are done weekly and they reset every week. Now what’s odd with this they have trophies that your guild can accumulate every week and they are pretty useless as your guild gets nothing for these trophies, except your overall rank in guild. I’m ok with this process, but they never reset the trophies like everything else so that teams that have been playing longer than new teams you will never ever catch them. It’s the only thing that measures your guild and you can never know how really good your team can be each week because your trophies never reset. So new guilds can never get excited about their status. Plus in GW’s if your a new guild and really good, you can’t climb the brackets. Your always stuck in the back with guilds who don’t even play or have one member. The sad thing is I’ve been playing a year now and it has been brought up in forums and brought up to the developers of game and they never comment about it, or fix it. It’s like they don’t care.

    Worked great at first. Built a good team, upgraded them, joined a guild, then all of a sudden it kept crashing/ force stopping. I uninstalled then reinstalled it, worked for a day, then right back to the same stop loop. I'll wait for the bugs to get fixed. EDIT: The bugs were on Google's end with a buggy update. Fixed. Game works fine. Back to burning up free time.

    The goal of all games in this space should be consistent improvement. With only a couple minor exceptions every change made to this game in my time playing has actively made it worse. You're screwing up endless Puzzle Quest, with the smallest amount of effort and care on your part that shouldn't be possible.

    They game is great for passing the time and is super fun to play even though it can be monotonous. I am not recommending this game for the simple fact of their support. In the beginning they seem pretty helpful albeit they take awhile to respond. I had to get a new computer and am unable to login to my account. I contacted support and they found that my account I was looking for was linked to my correct email address. I cannot login to this account and when I try to reset the password I get a message saying "there is no account linked to this email address provided". I have been trying to get this issue fixed for over a month now, and support just completely ignores me. No response to my support tickets or follow up emails... Do NOT spend money on this game.

  • This game is going downhill fast. Sep 19, 2019

    By Adventfire
    First of all with this last update I have never seen so many new players quit the game after just a few days. You are locked into a boring group of kingdom stories and have to finish them all before you can unlock the soul forge which could have been really helpful at the beginning. My niece started the game, joined my clan and we helped in every way we could and even when she hit level 100 still didn’t have a decent team to do much with and she was only halfway through the mandatory boring kingdom stories. She quit of course and is now playing Puzzles and Dragons and having a blast. This game has terrible loot chest drops, cheating AI, and with each update it goes more towards pay to win. New players don’t have a chance. People who have played from the beginning have weapons and creatures that are much harder to get now. So do yourself a favor and play a different game. This one will just make you angry. Oh also pay attention to dev responses especially the stupid one that says they tested the AI and it DOESNT cheat then they go on to say in fact IT CHEATS for the player which it does not. So they say it doesn’t cheat then admits it does. If it did cheat for the player there wouldn’t be so many AI cheating complaints. They must think we are stupid. Do not support them!

  • Too much variety Jun 19, 2018

    By geigerm
    GoW, at its core, is a fun game. The number of team building options are fantastic, and the guild system does a great job rewarding those who’ve worked together within the game for a long time. The recent changes are obvious attempts at monetization that have diluted that system, though. The pets are pointless. Guild Wars are still a ton of fun, but the Raid Boss and Invasion events are dull grindfests that lack variety and encourage gem spending to progress beyond a certain plateau. That plateau comes a lot sooner if you don’t have top-tier troops for that week’s event, a more likely outcome now that the drop rates for Mythics have plummeted (except in VIP chests, I’d guess). Let guilds choose which events they want to do—if a guild wants to only play Guild Wars every week, let them do that. You can incentivize variety by allowing guilds that play the three different events type to gain more rewards, but those of us who would gladly sacrifice rewards to have more fun should be able to do so. As it is, I find myself virtually ignoring the game two out of three weeks, and I doubt that’s the outcome the devs want for dedicated players.

    It was an excellent game when I started playing it 2 years ago, but it is gradually being ruined by a greedy company who no longer cares about its customers having fun. Not a good long-term investment. Check the forums to see the numerous issues with this game's Quality and Design direction. Skip! :-) Edit: their automated response to my review (suggesting to visit forums that I have already referenced to) further illustrates how this company functions. Skip! :)

    We'll made, no road blocks or progression stops. Can play at your Owen pace. Iv not experienced one bad thing. Easy to farm, lots of combinations and characters. Easy to get resources to level up. Far and balance PvP. No p2w. All shop items are not needed at all not one bit. But as makes progression faster and little bit more variety in weapons. I love just chilling to music and play a bit to pass the time. P.s if your new and struggling join a guild or make one it makes a big difference.

  • Best match game period! Dec 31, 2018

    By Russ_M
    I have been playing this game off and on for the last two years. I love that you can sync your game between mobile and PC. They have made a lot of changes recently and there are tons of game modes and guild activities, but players are able to participate at their own pace. If you want to play for free and just do the activities you want, cool. If you want to spend money every month and compete for the leaderboards, that’s cool too. Sure, people that do the later have some better troops and more rewards, but that’s the incentive you play for. This doesn’t keep less competitive players from playing the game or having fun. There is always something new to unlock and new troops to play for, the combinations are endless. Download, play and enjoy. If you find that you love the game I suggest getting involved in an active Guild community and watch Tacet’s videos.

    Great match 3. No money needed, 100% of everything can be earned in game with a little work. Make sure to join a guild, as an active one will improve your game by leaps and bounds. Weekly and daily events will keep you engaged.

    Hey, pretty good game! And match 3s are not usually my thing. I have one small complaint and one suggestion. The file size is a bit deceptive, its turned out being over 400mb, which is forgivable for the graphics. And my suggestion goes back to graphics. Ive seen some really cool art with these characters, so Id like to see a gallery of obtainable characters since you guys went to the trouble of the design and it gives players something to strive for. Good job though.

  • Terrific game, a little buggy, but constantly evolving May 4, 2018

    By ZeldasAwakening
    I’ve never played a game that was a living thing like this one. The developer is always playing with the look and side quests such that the game always feels fresh despite having a basic mechanic to it. I like that it is turn based so I can put it down instantly when I need to chase my kids or address something else in my busy life. I love that the PVP area is all teams designed by various players, but that team is run by the computer so I don’t have to wait on someone to take their turn. I like that I can play completely free- money just makes game easier or faster rather than possible. The game only got four stars from me because it is buggy. I usually have to load it at least twice and there are periodic holes in things. This week I can’t get into the events menu at all.

  • Lots of content - paywalls can be overcome Oct 19, 2018

    By dustspirit
    The gameplay is fun for the most part aside from whatever game breaking mythic or card combo that makes PvP unplayable. The best news being that PvP does not lock any content rewards so you can play a good portion of the game without it. The mythic/legendary/whatever drop rate is abysmal but join a good guild and you’ll get something worth working with more sooner than later. Most important is synergy between your cards and it will take a while to gather a decent team but when you do you’ll be able to clear endgame content - even that will rely on luck on many an occasion. It’s fun - just minus 1 star for the obscene difficulty of Pet Rescue (without damage reduction ANY matched skulls WILL kill one of your team in the last 2 stages) and the inability to save your team in that mode (and Delve). Seriously though - good game.

  • Used to be fun... Sep 15, 2019

    By WabiSabiLass
    First of all, I love the mechanics of this game. It was my favorite game for a while, but the recent update has made it pretty much unplayable for me. I was progressing well before, but now I'm at a complete standstill, unable to beat any new levels because the enemy teams are so ridiculously strong. The AI balance has become atrocious. Enemies are super-strong, they get massive boosts, they get cascades of skulls & extra turns... It's just unbeatable, & I can't even upgrade my troops because I can't win any new levels to gain souls. I'm about ready to give up on GoW if they don't rebalance the AI to how it was before.

  • Decent game Nov 10, 2020

    By Heenaluboy
    A decent time killer for a casual gamer. A lot of things setup against the user, as is the case with most games these days. A lot of imbalance in pvp makes it a lot less enjoyable than it could be. Overpowered weapons such as Rope Dart and Doomed weapons break pvp. Newer players have no access to them and are at a complete disadvantage. Certain classes are broken, namely Orbweaver. But still a pretty fun game with a lot going for it P.S. LOL at lorenzoni thinking the top guilds bot. Learn how to farm noob.

    By Batman2069
    The game is awesome, if a little overwhelming at first . Interesting story, great game play. I love the fact you really can play for free. It takes a little longer, but you never have to pay to play . There is a lot to do and I never run out of time, the battery on my phone dies before I quit. However the server frequently goes down while play losing my rewards.

  • Disappointed Jun 3, 2018

    By mooseheadbear
    When I started playing this game at the beginning it was my favorite game. Now for the most part it seems that the game is just a money grab. the over complexity of the game is ridiculous. Virgin players can spend money and easily crush me in pvp with characters and weapons that i don't have although i personally have been playing for years. I WORK FOR A LIVING, so if i start to try and play for one of the new PETS the short time level runs out before i have a chance to win it. RIDICULOUS. When there is a new quest I enjoy that but the game quickly becomes mundane and annoying after that is done. Your game is like cigarettes, as distasteful as it has become overall it is addictive enough that I still keep playing as a time killer. dissapointed.

  • This Game Cheats... Dec 18, 2020

    By aaronwlsn
    This game cheats and I mean SERIOUSLY cheats. It was fun for the first 8 battles against the CPU but then I started to notice the CPU getting MULTIPLE second and third turns in a row. Then I was realizing that not only was the CPU getting the multiple turns but it was getting the perfect colors to fall into play and multiple skulls so that it could keep attacking but everyone it was my turn, I had to work for what I wanted just to see the CPU take it and use it to get more multiple turns and so on......I’ll be moving in from this game. It cheats and doesn’t even do anything to hide it. It’s literally in your face cheating and the game just looked at you like “ha...did you see me cheat just now?!”

  • The game is losing its appeal. Aug 17, 2020

    By MasySyma
    The recent campaign hurt the experience for me. Every event is designed for players who can play 2+ hours everyday, and the prizes at the lower levels are not good when the hero finally gets to a higher level. I have precious little free time, and I refuse to spend it all on this game which requires 20+ hours of playing per week or far too much money to get ahead. The World Events are tedious, Invasion and The Tower attack thing are a slog. Delves require hours and hours of game play for a 24 hour event, and even PVP has become a boring replay of the same six teams. Explore is repetitive, and even the gnomes are being set up to require even more tedious battles.

    First of all with this last update I have never seen so many new players quit the game after just a few days. You are locked into a boring group of kingdom stories and have to finish them all before you can unlock the soul forge which could have been really helpful at the beginning. My niece started the game, joined my clan and we helped in every way we could and even when she hit level 100 still didn’t have a decent team to do much with and she was only halfway through the mandatory boring kingdom stories. She quit of course and is now playing Puzzles and Dragons and having a blast. This game has terrible loot chest drops, cheating AI, and with each update it goes more towards pay to win. New players don’t have a chance. People who have played from the beginning have weapons and creatures that are much harder to get now. So do yourself a favor and play a different game. This one will just make you angry. Oh also pay attention to dev responses especially the stupid one that says they tested the AI and it DOESNT cheat then they go on to say in fact IT CHEATS for the player which it does not. So they say it doesn’t cheat then admits it does. If it did cheat for the player there wouldn’t be so many AI cheating complaints. They must think we are stupid. Do not support them!

    Was fun for a time, but that has quickly soured. For all the developers talk about a balanced AI, it sure seems like every move the player makes just sets the opponent up for multiple 4 gem matches which kick off ridiculously overpowered attacks. Leveling up monsters for player teams is nigh on impossible, as each level costs increasing amounts of gems, and oh, and there's an endless variety of monsters, all needing advancement. All in all, a boring piece of trash. Uninstalling.
