    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.

    Comfortably the best gem matching game out there. Lots of new content added regularly, no need to pay to advance, very deep and detailed classes. Joining a guild is the best way to get the most out of if. Only barrier is that it has a steep learning curve, but once you get past that it's worth 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.

    It's Puzzle Quest but with gacha. So far no P2W shenanigans that I can see. The game progresses slowly but I enjoy the slow grind, and this game is a grind so be aware of what you're getting into. Join an active guild if just for the anazing rewards. This is a great slow burn match-3 RPG that doesnt make me feel like I need to spend to progress.

  • 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.

    My favorite thing about this game was that almost all (99%) of the content was accessable (see: grind) without being forced into a pay to play model. However that has changed with the recent addition of campaigns, which has divided rewards into two tiers, paid and free. Very disappointed in the new direction.

  • 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.

    Luck factor for game ai are too high, the problem is not ai cheat or not. But the experience trough playing.. Yes at lower level is easier, but at higher level, luck factor for game ai gets skull gems are high, the ods oddly favor the AI.

    Great game... Until it starts to HEAVILY favor the AI. Please don't tell me the same thing I have seen you tell everyone else who has left a similar review. If several people have the same opinion, it's probably true. You would listen if we were paid players, in fact I would pay to play if I didn't feel cheated on a daily basis. Please don't make me uninstall my favorite game.

    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.

    I've been playing this game for about a year and love it. The reviews that mention Pay-to-win are incorrect. Yes, there are in-app purchases, but there are many in-game ways to get resources you need. Also, I haven't seen anything to suggest that the AI is cheating. Yes, it gets lucky sometimes, but so do I. The game is very strategic with the team-building aspect. This isn't your normal gems game. It requires some thought about which matches give you an advantage without giving the AI an advantage. The game is slow in the beginning since you won't have many troops, but in time you get better troops and can increase their power and effectiveness. The best way to get ahead in the game is to join an active guild. You'll quickly acquire resources and build a stronger base of troops. All in all, an amazing game.

    Super fun time consuming game. No ads . Well not really. You can watch one if you want to. Many challenges many different builds for your heroes. Many Mon games and the campaign is pretty big as far as I can see. Waited till lvl 100 to post a rating. If you do download the game go into an active guild. It is well worth it. Happy gaming God Bless all

    Only a few hours in, (level 15), but my first impression is extremely favorable. Few ads intrude on you, your allowed into a guild quickly, the graphics are pleasant looking and the creature/troop powers are varied, interesting and meaningful. It may be a match game but the way your cards store power for attacks allows an attentive player to rely less on luck than is typical for these types of games. Honestly, nothing really negative to report at this point

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Good game, bad server Jul 9, 2018

    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.

  • Please fix Jul 17, 2020

    By armygirlz
    I loved this game before the most recent update. Now it’s not much fun as when I make a match of 4 or more, it will not give me my extra turn. I have lost 2 battles because of this. Either fix this or put it back to the way it was. Also, I can’t get into the chaos portals. I really enjoy this game, just not with this newest update.

  • 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.

  • First Review Sep 19, 2019

    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.

  • Fun game, ignorant devs Dec 6, 2019

    By Junk app....
    I’ve waited 9 months to review this game. I am currently vip lvl 11, which means I have spent quite a bit of money on this game. The first thing I would like to mention is the devs do not fix existing issues, they prefer to release new unwanted content for people to chase. Issues with the AI matching 3 and getting extra turns, player matching gems and getting no mana ( with no status effects, no - banner, the match happens you see the animation float over to the troop, but you do not get the mana.) this week was a new release mythic. I spent 600 gem keys, 2300 glory keys, and 1500 guild keys @ the highest tier and got nothing more than an epic. Additionally they will be updating to 4.7, this will in effect eliminate legendary tasks for 95% of players, hundreds if not thousands of players have told the devs they do not want this, we are ignored. Their “compromise” was an additional 40 glory keys. In closing, the devs are ignorant to players wants, they pretend to care using puppets like Salty and Kafka, who tow the company line and try to get people to believe that your leg is wet because it is raining, not because they are peeing on you. New players? Forget it. Save yourself the BS, don’t install this game.

  • Linking account is buggy and you lose everything!! Sep 2, 2020

    By Dutch4U
    So I thought this was a fun game. I spend 2-3 days and also bought plenty of stuff to speed things up a bit. But when I wanted to make sure I could play this on my iPhone as well, I got into their account linking “hell”. When I tried to use a different email address, I again never got an email to set up my password, but worse: next time I started the game, it started completely new. Trying to log a problem on their website and they force you to look at all other problems and you can’t even log anything new easily. I’m sure this was not intentional, but I do feel scammed out of $75 or so. I would NOT spend any of your money on this game as you will likely lose it
