    Never thought I’d get hooked on a mobile game. I’ve played Match3 before but nothing like this. It’s action/RPG/arcade and and a fiery challenge. Just make sure to raise the difficulty if you’re bored with progress, and do that regardless because PVP is a monster. Loot boxes seem ... generous, but business is business and I don’t see the extent of the wall yet. Just gotta put in time to get some of the better cards and PVP will show you exactly what they can do. The rank listings clearly show where you stand so, like any fight, if you get whooped by the biggest guys, it was your choice to take ‘em on. It all seems fair to me. There are some freezing issues + bugs here and there, but nothing game ending. This program does guzzle battery juice so be careful taking your addiction on the go. I highly recommend this game to anyone looking for something worth the extra taps on a touchscreen.

    Is it progrmmed to cheat? Multiple times I've made gem matches and my mana hasn't increased. Different troops different battles, and against different opponents too. Yes some troops have traits where they can steal you're magic which stops you from getting extra turns when you match four or more gems, but this has was not the case. Also why does higher level battles mean they opposition gets all the extra turns or all the skulls especially when cpu only has one troop left.

  • 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.

  • 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 a fantastic game but ... The game has UNDERGONE a lot of CHANGES recently and it is FOR THE WORSE. ENJOYING the game is now: WHAT'S THE POINT! You know what BATTLES you are going to LOSE, especially in ARENA! MAPS are now ONE A DAY if you are lucky. DAILY and PET quests are NOT for lower level players, but for those who have very HIGH STATS and VIP. COST of items are unbelievably STEEP. Another game company that wants to rake in the money that people don't have 😡

    I had played this game everyday without fail and been in numerous top 20 guilds. But unfortunately its turned into a pay to play game and there is no chance of taking a week off without missing stuff. At a high level this isnt a fun game to play as you can't really play it casually anymore. I really big shame for someone that has a life outside of this game.

    From 5 stars to 1. Reason : it became a pay as you play game. A game that was enjoyed by over a million players but now one has to constantly grind just to keep up with the lots of new stuff that is the most irritating to play like the world lore. My guild is lvl 500 but my players cant keep up. Just take a while and see that most players work and now the game became a second job for us all. Please devs dont try to make it impossible for players to play the game

    Matching, leveling, small game, event any lots more. (The most important thing is that no energy bar required!) Is a great game for me which l always a F2P gamer. No hassle if you don't spend money here, still playable. Just 1 thing l don't like, download required most of the time, but still it worth 5 star.

  • 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.

  • Favorite match-3 rpg Jun 2, 2020

    By fortinteforlife
    It all started one Saturday morning. I was looking for good games on the AppStore when I stumbled upon this game. (Wish I could use the name but I can’t cuz of copyright) so I decided to download it. At first I thought it was fun. But not super fun. As I continued to play the game I got more overpowered troops that mad me win so many battles! I just could not think of a better match 3 rpg game. I have played for days and days and days and days and then... I got my first mythic troop. I was so happy I fell of my couch. Then... I got like 4 legendaries from one chest! I always get so exited to see what I get from the chests. I get legendary troops most of the time. And I’m ok with that but I really want a new mythic troop. I just found out that a troop level cap is 20. So yeah... so now I’m playing this game like 24/7. Not really. But this is a really great game and I hope many more updates come in the future!!!

    I've played this game for a couple of years, first on PS4 and now on mobile. I was sad there was no way to keep my progress on PS4 in the mobile app, so I had to start over. But the game is enjoyable enough for me to start from scratch and still have fun. I've never paid for anything and have still been able to make progress (though I'm just a casual player with no real end goal, so I don't mind if the progress is slow).

  • 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.

  • GoW Jan 15, 2019

    By CoachVoight
    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.

    The game is fun stratigicly, and playing it was fun when I installed it. Pairing cards together that work well together is fun. Then stopped for bit. Picked it back up and the game play itself is a little off now. When you play a set of rounds, ie. pet rescue. First round, way to easy for a well versed player. Round two so outside your league you are no match for it. Then the computer suggestions. If it give you a suggestion it doesn't matter if you take it or not, it will benefit the computer.

    Fun game, joining guilds really helps, but the constant glitch where match 4 doesn't gain an extra turn really makes me want to stop playing. And, yes, the AI cheats by giving itself way more skulls than it gives the player! Especially at higher levels. I figure it's part of how they make it more difficult, but it irks me more the higher the level I get.

    I used to love this game but the developers spend more time on new content instead of fixing the glitches currently in the game. They clearly are headed more towards more making money than keeping existing players. They community developer is so unprofessional in her dealings with the community, which becomes quite sad. And their arena "update" is just pathetic. My star rating keeps decreasing because of their "updates for the better"

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Gameplay is fun, load times are ridiculous Jun 25, 2019

    By Jschiller21
    Gameplay is fun. Pretty standard match 3 with a bit of a twist. Doesn’t make up for the utterly atrocious load times. Start a fight? Spend 2 minutes loading. Win a fight? Spend 1 minute loading. Level up? 3 minutes loading. Change a team member? 4 minutes. God forbid there’s some dialogue. You’ll be sitting there for like 5 minutes. It seems like a good game but for every minute of gameplay there’s 10 minutes of loading. That’s just not OK. This is all on an iPhone X. Can’t imagine trying to play on something older.

    By review3019$$$&
    This is a fun game but I agree with a few other honest reviews I read. The AI doesn’t have to honor the rules of the game. I’ve experienced the AI receiving extra turns without always matching 4. There are a few other AI issues that you will notice. For example, the rate of the skull drops that the AI receives. How quickly the AI is able to cascade their attacks, etc. opposed to you as the player. Also the game in many instances makes the AI unbeatable. This is a decent game to kill time but as others have said is definitely a money grab game. I normally don’t write reviews, but I felt the need to.

    Edited my review for the newest update: yet another disappointing change. Players wanted a revamped arena....so devs made it worse by removing heroes for vague references to balance in an already prebalanced arena. Now, with arena a task of the new campaign, it's made it even more slow and boring. Request for the devs: can you at least be honest and say people weren't spending enough gems to skip unwanted tasks? Paid for the campaign pass previously, and i won't be spending another dime.
