  • Addictive Pay to Win Strategy Game Mar 16, 2018

    By Sir Amelius
    If you love strategy, this game is really fun in the beginning. Overtime, unfortunately, you will start to notice that your skills don’t matter. You soon realize that achieving victory means you also have to have good cards. Each card requires X amount of cards of the same type to level up to keep that particular card competitive as you grow through the ranks. To get new cards you have to either purchase them with in-game currency or wait for chests to open. Chests take hours to open. Opening them sooner requires in-game currency. In-game currency is accumulated at an exceptionally slow rate. To receive more of this currency you have to pay real money. So the formula, to simply put, is: Victory = good strategy + competitive cards; competitive cards = in-game currency; in-game currency = suicidally long wait times or real money. I’ve gotten to the point where I’ve plateaued. I’m pretty good with the strategy, but it’s gotten to the point where I have a behemoth that has 10 HP vs an enemy who has one at 19+ and opponent has monsters that do 3x more damage than any of mine. Impossible to advance without better cards. Aside from certain strategies, the last lesson this game taught me is humility. You can try your best, exhaust all options, fight to the last card, but sometimes you really can’t win; you must accept defeat and walk away. I’ll check in from time to time but I can confidently say I’m disenchanted.

  • Has the potential for great things!!! Feb 1, 2018

    By norriswarsong
    I’ve only had this game a few days and I never write reviews for games but I have to give credit where credit is due! Definitely worth the small bit of money to purchase. It’s only got one small flaw like a previous reviewer said on scaling after setting the board which isn’t that big of a deal just move back a bit it’s got a decent range you can move from after setting the board. Either way with some time , better looking and more variety of monsters and maybe and friend vs mode this could be and amazing game that I’d definitely stay loyal to.

  • Awesome potential Nov 7, 2017

    By Thewafle
    I’ve been playing for probably 3 days or so now and this game is actually pretty entertaining. My only complaint is the board set up where a lot of the time the board will pop up really close so I have to awkwardly hold my phone up by my face just to see the rest of the board. I feel on the calibration before a match with board scaling it should allow you to zoom out and in rather than only being able to zoom in. Aside from that with patches and add ons via updates I can see this being a great game

  • Potentially great, needs some tweaking. Nov 8, 2017

    By Ewyasewyas1
    I’ve been playing this game for a few weeks and enjoyed the game play. There are a couple of inherited problems from other ‘Dollars to advance games’. I’m at a stage where my “king” piece is halting game play. My opponents are either so weak I can kill them in one round, or so strong it’s impossible. There is no middle ground on advancing. If you have played this game you can understand that opponents are either ‘kings” with 12 defense or kings with 31. What happened to the enemy imbetween at 20?. I haven’t found one yet in about two weeks. My king is is level 12, so 31 is nearly impossible and 12 is too easy if you have the first turn.

  • Fun needs work Mar 3, 2019

    By D@rkhand
    The concept behind the game is fun and I would like to give it more stars but the execution needs work. The board has a tendency to float away or for the creatures to not show up making it impossible to play. The games are short but four victories later your waiting 90 plus minutes to play again because all four chest slots are full or you can continually pay money to unlock them to play again only needed to repeat a few minutes later. Chest take a minimum of two hours to unlock. Replacing the chest and wait time model and Changing it so you earned Points for purchasing boosters/chest for victories would be a better system as the game has nothing else for you to do while waiting. Conducting actions can be difficult because characters can get hidden behind others making it difficult to activate them and I haven’t found a way to rotate the board you also have to go into the menu to reset the board when it glitches or to change board size. They need a rotation button and their board size slide up on the screen or change to the finger pinch pull to make it easier to adjust during gameplay.

  • Fun at first then you realize if you want to compete you have spend money May 9, 2018

    By siralexgameplayer1111
    Fun at first I played a lot.. strategic moves gets the win but later I notice my opponents are 3 times stronger than mine so hardly a fair match. I decided to play more to get extra free gems but that only occurs every few hours so waiting around was a pain. I never made a purchase so after one day of extra playing I notice it said I’ve reached my daily limits to earn points. WHAT?! So In other words the only way to really compete in this game is to pay for extra cards for upgrades since the earnings on free plays have daily limits Onto the next game

  • Really like concept, but need better size options Oct 6, 2017

    By Xygen
    Great concept really liked idea, but it requires too much space, can’t even get it to fit properly on the floor of my living room? It says it allows you to scale with new update so I revisited the game, but once placed only allows you to scale up and not down? Really needs to be able to scale down in size to fit on smaller tables or desk, also should give ability to adjust the rotation of board once placed, since always seems to place at weird angles which don’t square up with the table surface.

  • Unbalanced Dec 24, 2017

    By Eyot90
    It is very unbalanced as a new player I keep getting paired against people who have leveled all there monsters up making it nearly impossible for me to grow. How am I supposed to level my monsters when I keep getting paired against people who can one hit me but I have to attack them 4-6 times to take their piece off the board. Aside from this it is a really great game but it is really unfair and frustrating for new players since they can’t advance

  • Best game ever!!!! Nov 20, 2017

    By Saturnpiano
    I love this game! When you start there aren’t really any instructions but you figure it out quick so that’s ok. Once you get into it though, it’s amazing! The combination of moving players on the board and attack strategies and leveling up cards, it’s all really cool. Graphics are also really amazing and the details just add to the experience. It brings together the nostalgia and familiarity of board games and card games with the excitement and sci-fi aspect of AR and space alien monsters. Overall it’s an incredible game and the best I’ve ever played!

  • Great start! Oct 20, 2017

    By Timleeak
    This is a game with lots of promise. The basic gameplay is entertaining with fun additions which just make it unique. Further development will definitely make this a solid title, not that it’s bad now. On the plus side, customer service is on point with these guys, they’re fast and responsive without making you feel like a criminal. They take suggestions to heart and honestly work towards developing in a positive direction.

  • Only issue Dec 17, 2017

    By Aaric90
    I love he game, it’s a fun new way to use AR(at least to me) however I do have an issue with it. The last three matches I’ve had that I won, when at supposed to take me to the reward screen it continues to say loading and never loads. That’s a bit of gold I’m missing out on plus some chests. I let it sit on loading for an hour the other day, and it never loaded.

  • Great, but incomplete Dec 24, 2017

    By HiItsMeHaHa
    Fun game, challenging, and surprisingly functional. Menu graphics are amateur-looking. Needs local multi-player to really get the holo-chess feel it's going for. With those last two fixed it's an easy 5 stars.

  • Okay Game Jan 4, 2018

    By jdevera57
    You know to be honest I like this game but it needs improvement. My biggest objectiv concerns are: 1.) If you disconnect when you believe you will lose, you aren’t penalized. In fact the game doesn’t register it. Keep disconnecting until u get that easy win. 2.) You aren’t playing a live person. That’s right, there’s no chance in hell you are going first every single time. Also, why would the opponent auto attack your hero when it would end the match? Anywho that’s my two cents, love the game but wish it was better...
