    If you’re looking for a fun, lighthearted game then this isn’t the game for you. Rise of Kings is a great game but expect to put forth some effort if you want to go far. There are a lot of in-app purchases of gems, and speed-ups and such that can speed up the process but for me I feel more satisfied to reach the next level if I had to put in the time and effort to get it done. There are mini games and daily quests that will provide you with a lot of your basic needs such time and healing speed-ups. Some mini-games even give gem rewards and castle shields. My advice for getting ahead? Join a good alliance with members you can learn from and will have your back during battles and in the kingdom wars. This is a game of strategy. The graphics and game play get better and better with each update. I totally recommend this game.

    I really love this game but am having a problem, you mostly get attacked by stronger kings out of nowhere even if you did nothing to them and you end up losing xp and lots of troops, which you cannot get back your dead troops, not nice! Why don't you create a alliance hospital where all your lost troops from being attacked can be kept and you could revive them or heal them..
  • Great game! Here’s a suggestion to make it even better Dec 16, 2018

    By vønn
    Absolutely love this game! I find myself always on this game whenever I get the chance to play. I’ll literally wake up 5am to let my dog outside and play this game to kill time which usually ends up becoming a longer task. I think this is the best strategy games in the App Store. The gameplay is nice and I’m always looking forward to new things being added. However I think if they added a building in the castle where you can play a bunch of mini games would make a nice edition. This option would be a great way to kill time when your waiting on all your resources/troops etc to build up. Another thing I think you guys should consider adding is a prison in your castle. This option should be added so that every siege victory you go and do you can also take their troops prisoner and have them become yours instead of just killing off half your troops. The last thing that would make this game better is that if you guys added a guardian dragon in your castle. For this option there should also be Dragon Training in the institute so you can upgrade your dragon and whatnot. The concept of the dragon is basically to help with defense and attack whenever your in a raid. I design apps and I’m really hoping you guys consider my ideas thank you all for making such a wonderful game!

    ROK is an awesome game, I'm hooked! I know everything cost money but for some of us it's impossible to pay so my suggestion to the developers are simple, give something to non paid players to do so we can exchange it for recharging "money". The new update and the rewards are simply awesome.
  • The game itself it great. May 7, 2020

    I’ve played ROK for over 2 years. It was my first game like this. I loved the game at first. It was so much fun. The graphics are good, they do update a lot, add new things regularly, I rarely had trouble with bugs. Now for the downside. This game is all about money sadly. I’m not talking about a few hundred dollars. If you want to have any chance of competing you’ll need to spend 10s of thousands of dollars. I know lots of players that have spent more then 100k on their castles. If you have the money good for you. The problem lies in with so many people from different parts of the world in your kingdom, problems arise, civil wars, non spenders losing interest. A year or so into the game you realize there are only a few dozen die hard players left in your kingdom. So your kingdom can’t compete in KVK, you start to lose KVKs and more quit. ROK absolutely refuses to allow you to move your castle to a new kingdom. They promise kingdom merges but in 2 years they have had maybe 3 of them thats 18 kingdoms merged into 9. Out of over 400 kingdoms. Their solution is start over in a new kingdom and spend more money. It’s sad that ROK has run this game into the ground with their greed. If you play check out some of the older kingdoms and see for yourself. Many are dead or dying

    Ive been playing for 3 and a half years now. Lot of changes in that time. Yes it's a pay for play to be the best, However RoK gives more free in game rewards than any game out there. You can do well without any investment whatsoever.
  • Glitches! Aug 7, 2018

    By Haddie 13
    I have multiple accounts in this game. I only planned on one but it had so many glitches I had to start another. I used the in game support and was told to restart and use the read all button to get my rewards out of my email, unfortunately the email with that the rewards was in was gone and it didn’t work (which I included in the message). You apparently can only have one problem because when I went back it only would let me talk with a veteran player. This is a game coding issue and another player is NOT going to be able to help with this! This new update cuts off part of the screen when in castle view so you can’t get to all your buildings. If you are a non-English speaker watch out; the translator is horrible!!! Oh and when you build the cannons it tells you how many REMAINING donations there are but it should say how many donations were made or count down. Example: remaining donations: 20/20, should mean there are 20 donations that can be made but really 20 donations have already been made. Oh it drains the batter with all the downloading!!!! Constant flashing blue download in the bottom right hand corner of the screen.

  • Solid game, needs new developers Mar 3, 2019

    By Journeyman24
    The gameplay is very good once you understand the mechanics. Bugs are minimal and they clearly spent some time organizing everything. Graphics are good without being over the top. The events are decent but could use some work. There is one big big problem with the game though. That’s the developers. They push so many new servers none of them are full. Most of the players are transplants from other servers. So you could spend the time getting your castle set up only to battle a few hundred people tops. The top 10 alliances can’t even get a full roster of players because there are not enough people play. They provide no option to move your castle to another server after lvl 6. Gameplay is solid, developers are keeping server capacity very low for some reason. I played for about two weeks only after getting a clear view of what was going on. They don’t seem to account for the players that only play a few days and don’t want to keep playing. If you want a castle building game with minimal action check this out.

    It’s got a massive amount of players that are active. I’ve progressed quite far, in game purchases are completely optional to play. The way the game is though, you want to spend a couple bucks (nothing major) but again, completely unnecessary to progress. There’s a built in translator so it makes it possible to communicate literally with people from all areas of the world which is AWESOME. ***Suggestion box*** I know they do read these, in the event that you read mine. I’d suggest one or two more events. How about something where for a couple of days specific monsters or rebel camps pop up throughout the map. I mean all over the map, not rare. They can be killed a certain amount of times before they level up (lv1 camp\monster zeroed teleports and changes to Lv 2 and so on) and they should drop decent rewards, of course some more rare than others. Each time they level up they increase in difficulty significantly. Again, JUST an idea. More events then the norm, it’s fun and engaging.

  • Worse GM support in a game Dec 29, 2019

    By Fire Merchant
    If you are looking for a game where the GM (as they like to call themselves) or moderators are fair and try to help you solve game issues; then don’t bother with this game. I have asked them in the past to help me with several issues, always the same answer, “we cannot help you, hope you understand and enjoy the game.” The latest issue, unbinding. It says contact a GM to help unbind the account. I contact them and tell them I need help unbinding from the current email account to my email account. They ask me for purchase history. I send them screenshots of my latest purchase. Then they tell me, I’m sorry that’s not good enough. I need a screenshot of your Apple iTunes purchase history. So I send them a screenshot of my purchase history. Then they tell me they need a screenshot of my google purchase history. What??? I tell them I don’t buy from google store, I buy from the Apple store. You asked for that purchase history and I gave it to you. I get the standard reply, “I’m sorry, we cannot help you, hope you understand and enjoy the game.” If you get Joy the GM, ask for someone else. She has done nothing for me in this game. Go play State of Survival (zombies). It’s a better game with better support.

  • Scam and pay to win. Jan 5, 2021

    By Dreldan
    *update* Just wanted to update my review now that time has passed, everything is the same and it’s even worse than before. There was a time when hard work and commitment would be rewarded in this game, now it’s all about the money. Ingame GM’s won’t even give you the time of day if you don’t spend. *update* This game has completely changed from what it used to be. Every single decision the developer makes is to increase their profits. Their packs are a scam and this game is 100% pay to win. Don’t think for a minute you might get lucky. They have in app purchases that give you a sliver of a chance of getting something great. It all caters to the people willing to spend thousands of dollars on this game (there are people who do and you stand no chance against them). They have all the things in the game to get you hooked and then you realize later on how screwed You really are if you aren’t willing to spend hundreds of dollars a month. Their support staff is awful. Automatic canned responses, most the time they don’t even understand what you’re saying and don’t even answer your question or concerns. It’s as if they don’t even play the game themselves.

    This is pay to play game, you'll say it is not, that patience/time will win also, not true, the only ones who will succeed here are those who buy, or those who spent most of the day on, if not buying you definitely need to be someone who has every day free for this. Many updates are done not to help us, but to gain more money for you, I understand that you want to make money but you also have to think about your players also, I've spent a lot on your games and enjoy, please reply.
  • Fun game, terrible customer support Oct 31, 2019

    By chickadee78
    If you’re thinking of downloading this game, don’t do it. I’ve been playing this game almost a year now and really enjoying it; however, I’ve been having problems with one of the GMs. I’ve repeatedly asked for his supervisor’s direct contact info, but they refuse to give me that info. Evan is incredibly rude and ineffective as a GM, as he doesn’t read your questions before sending a response. This is a waste of time for GMs and players alike. Evan’s most recent response to me was, “Obviously, you're a super genius that can figure things out with clear logic. With that skill,you will definitely win this week Kvk. Wish you good luck.” Trust me when I tell you this was biting sarcasm, not a compliment. Who do we complain to when customer support refuses to escalate our issues? They must have supervisors, but they won’t let you speak to them. Every time I have a problem, Evan is the one who responds. It seems purposeful. He refuses to allow me to speak to any other GM even after repeated requests. Don’t get sucked into this game. You might get stuck with Evan the inept.
  • Pay to play... Nov 2, 2018

    By Gunanwing
    The rich will own you ... it’s not a game you can play without being forced to bow down to the biggest spenders... even at the top ... the power levels are so extremely overdone. The game was ruined when they introduced the legendary levels... but had to give the big spenders what they wanted.. total control of a server... and there is nothing you or your entire alliance can do about a single player.. even if your only 2 levels lower and even if you wanted to retaliate... there is a 5 minute timer... so they basically lay waste to your entire alliance while you wait for five minutes... all for any attack to fail miserably anyway... so now you sit... zero troops to gather and no resources to train any ... so how do you get back... yep... better spend some money .. or it’s months ... yes months ... to get even close to where you were ... do your self and keep looking .. the developers don’t care ...your response proves my point ! lol... do you even read these? Those one stars adding up quick... deleted app...
  • Use to like ROK Apr 21, 2019

    By independent9702
    Recently the Rise of Kings creators have been making it harder and harder for people to grow and excel in the game. A big part of this game is gathering resources and to collect resources many people have separate accounts in which they use to farm and play dragon challenge on to receive rss crates. The resource crates were a huge advantage in this game and now the game has made all crates from dragon challenge protected so they cannot be shared between accounts. Basically the game has become more and more of a money grab by the ROK creators. They make excuses as they don’t want to overload servers with extra castles used as farms, if this was the case then why allow farms in a game? Played the game 3 years in kingdom 7 and they have made it more difficult to grow with these protected rss from almost every event, the kingdom has been dead for over 2 years and we have begged support for merges which they finally came out with but not for our kingdom. The support staff is not so helpful at times and the game has many bugs.

    This game is very nice but without money a player cannot get theme,privilege points, fast development n so on and so on. Why you developers give some thing without money?...... A least a person can get it by harder way but not only option is to buy and otherwise go to hell they dont care..... This game is really nice so please dont make it ruin..... Do something about this matter.....

    The developers recently changed the whole game, making it more focused on money, people in my alliance who spend money and therefore know what they are talking about it don't like the new changes. It's ruining their experience. Think twice about installing the game. It will cost you.
  • Love it Dec 8, 2017

    By Carol Shelby
    Been playing for six months now. Love it. But that's actually not why I'm here. To the developers, in the event you read these, the tavern was a dumb idea. It doesn't change anything about the game (everyone I've talked to in-game agrees). It's just a space occupier. And one that occupies space that didn't even need to be filled. But, you could change it. Leave the stuff that's there or get rid of it, idc, but you should add a function that allows you to hire mercenaries. Now these mercenaries, of course, aren't permanent, and (to maintain balance) would be expensive and in limited numbers. But they would be there for rich players who need just a few more troops to augment one attack or two. Maybe they don't have as many troops as they do dispatches, or maybe they just unlocked a new tier of troops and want to try them out without having to wait a few hours to train. But that would be a cool new add on that would make players actually excited about the tavern.

    There should be an option for the packs. It's okay that you need to spend some money in order to get some boost & priviledge. But, the should be an optional way to get the priviledges & unlock stuff for those who don't have money to spend. It may take them a little longer, but atleast they will have a motivation. They won't feel being deprived of essential game elements.

My advice for getting ahead? Join a good alliance with members you can learn from and will have your back during battles and in the kingdom wars. This is a game of strategy. The graphics and game play get better and better with each update. I totally recommend this game.

    The combat mechanics of this game are much better than most of it's type. The unit types are well thought out, distinguishing between defensive and assault troops is genius. Still too much focus on fast leveling and dragons, though. Ranger heroes should have a bit more battle prestige also.

    By Shanebiz
    This is an awesome strategy game with great graphics and good people who play. I love the set up and the numerous ways to get free bonus rss and such by the different events. However, the cost of some of the resources are outrageous when you get to the Top lvls. And if you didn’t care about that because you just go buy a pack the amount of rss they give you in a pack aren’t near the amount you need to grow at a high lvl. This is especially true for lvl Legendary 1 through 5. I have spent a lot of money on here and there are no extra perks for the thousands spent. I’m sure you all love a person like me. At least in MS they took care of people who took care of them. Like I said though. Game play is great. Just don’t understand why the people who do spend money on here to play don’t get taken better care of.
  • Great Game May 13, 2018

    Great game I have enjoyed playing and spending money here, but for some reason recently I have been having issues logging on. This is super frustrating, I have lost lots of power and troops. Is there anything that can be done about this? I am running the most recent updates on my phone and the game. I’m tired of being attacked because the system won’t let me login.. I gave it 4 stars but if this continues I’ll find another game to play.

    Definitely a very great game, you can progress both buying and playing for free. I'd like to see more development in the game, it is very fast to upgrade especially if you buy, but I think it should be a little more difficult to achieve castle levels, but overall the game is fun, and doesn't have many bugs.
  • The game itself it great. May 7, 2020

    By Charmingpoodle
    I’ve played ROK for over 2 years. It was my first game like this. I loved the game at first. It was so much fun. The graphics are good, they do update a lot, add new things regularly, I rarely had trouble with bugs. Now for the downside. This game is all about money sadly. I’m not talking about a few hundred dollars. If you want to have any chance of competing you’ll need to spend 10s of thousands of dollars. I know lots of players that have spent more then 100k on their castles. If you have the money good for you. The problem lies in with so many people from different parts of the world in your kingdom, problems arise, civil wars, non spenders losing interest. A year or so into the game you realize there are only a few dozen die hard players left in your kingdom. So your kingdom can’t compete in KVK, you start to lose KVKs and more quit. ROK absolutely refuses to allow you to move your castle to a new kingdom. They promise kingdom merges but in 2 years they have had maybe 3 of them thats 18 kingdoms merged into 9. Out of over 400 kingdoms. Their solution is start over in a new kingdom and spend more money. It’s sad that ROK has run this game into the ground with their greed. If you play check out some of the older kingdoms and see for yourself. Many are dead or dying
  • Glitches! Aug 7, 2018

    By Haddie 13
    I have multiple accounts in this game. I only planned on one but it had so many glitches I had to start another. I used the in game support and was told to restart and use the read all button to get my rewards out of my email, unfortunately the email with that the rewards was in was gone and it didn’t work (which I included in the message). You apparently can only have one problem because when I went back it only would let me talk with a veteran player. This is a game coding issue and another player is NOT going to be able to help with this! This new update cuts off part of the screen when in castle view so you can’t get to all your buildings. If you are a non-English speaker watch out; the translator is horrible!!! Oh and when you build the cannons it tells you how many REMAINING donations there are but it should say how many donations were made or count down. Example: remaining donations: 20/20, should mean there are 20 donations that can be made but really 20 donations have already been made. Oh it drains the batter with all the downloading!!!! Constant flashing blue download in the bottom right hand corner of the screen.
  • Solid game, needs new developers Mar 3, 2019

    By Journeyman24
    The gameplay is very good once you understand the mechanics. Bugs are minimal and they clearly spent some time organizing everything. Graphics are good without being over the top. The events are decent but could use some work. There is one big big problem with the game though. That’s the developers. They push so many new servers none of them are full. Most of the players are transplants from other servers. So you could spend the time getting your castle set up only to battle a few hundred people tops. The top 10 alliances can’t even get a full roster of players because there are not enough people play. They provide no option to move your castle to another server after lvl 6. Gameplay is solid, developers are keeping server capacity very low for some reason. I played for about two weeks only after getting a clear view of what was going on. They don’t seem to account for the players that only play a few days and don’t want to keep playing. If you want a castle building game with minimal action check this out.
  • ROK OG May 12, 2020

    By IrishDevil41
    Hey, there. I’m an OG at ROK. I’ve been playing since K16. KVK broke the game. Everyone wants peace now. You have so many mini games you have to spend an hour to do them all. Most are geared towards spending. The heroes that do anything useful have to be bought. So most spenders will always destroy you. Kingdoms open too quickly and leave us with half the players as when we started. Most that begin in a kingdom are actually waiting for the next. Or farms. So real players aren’t what they used to be. K16 we have 30 alliances full of active people. Now there MAYBE 3 full active teams by throne. After throne drama you’re down to 2 1/2 teams of active players. Hard to accomplish anything come kvk. Stop opening kingdoms twice a week and make people stay in their kingdom longer. Stop letting people hop. Oh, I know. Starting over is more spending. So they’d rather sacrifice the loyal players for the quick buck. The game isn’t what it used to be. But can be enjoyable if you don’t spend and just be ready to move on to a new one six months later when everything is dead.

    This is pay to play game, you'll say it is not, that patience/time will win also, not true, the only ones who will succeed here are those who buy, or those who spent most of the day on, if not buying you definitely need to be someone who has every day free for this. Many updates are done not to help us, but to gain more money for you, I understand that you want to make money but you also have to think about your players also, I've spent a lot on your games and enjoy, please reply.

    I have been playing this game for nearly 5 years and although it is a good game the developers just want to make a lot of money. The recent change to crp points is disgraceful, reducing almost 18k points to 3.5k points so 5 times less points but the points to get rewards have been increased by 4 times so you can get a twentieth of the original rewards.... disgraceful behavior rok

    Post update. Won't recommend since the update is all about spending more money on packages. The event lack creativity and nothing in the current events have the drive to let the players progress towards upcoming events. Disappointing.
  • Worse GM support in a game Dec 29, 2019

    By Fire Merchant
    If you are looking for a game where the GM (as they like to call themselves) or moderators are fair and try to help you solve game issues; then don’t bother with this game. I have asked them in the past to help me with several issues, always the same answer, “we cannot help you, hope you understand and enjoy the game.” The latest issue, unbinding. It says contact a GM to help unbind the account. I contact them and tell them I need help unbinding from the current email account to my email account. They ask me for purchase history. I send them screenshots of my latest purchase. Then they tell me, I’m sorry that’s not good enough. I need a screenshot of your Apple iTunes purchase history. So I send them a screenshot of my purchase history. Then they tell me they need a screenshot of my google purchase history. What??? I tell them I don’t buy from google store, I buy from the Apple store. You asked for that purchase history and I gave it to you. I get the standard reply, “I’m sorry, we cannot help you, hope you understand and enjoy the game.” If you get Joy the GM, ask for someone else. She has done nothing for me in this game. Go play State of Survival (zombies). It’s a better game with better support.

  • Scam and pay to win. Jan 5, 2021

    By Dreldan
    *update* Just wanted to update my review now that time has passed, everything is the same and it’s even worse than before. There was a time when hard work and commitment would be rewarded in this game, now it’s all about the money. Ingame GM’s won’t even give you the time of day if you don’t spend. *update* This game has completely changed from what it used to be. Every single decision the developer makes is to increase their profits. Their packs are a scam and this game is 100% pay to win. Don’t think for a minute you might get lucky. They have in app purchases that give you a sliver of a chance of getting something great. It all caters to the people willing to spend thousands of dollars on this game (there are people who do and you stand no chance against them). They have all the things in the game to get you hooked and then you realize later on how screwed You really are if you aren’t willing to spend hundreds of dollars a month. Their support staff is awful. Automatic canned responses, most the time they don’t even understand what you’re saying and don’t even answer your question or concerns. It’s as if they don’t even play the game themselves.
  • Fun game, terrible customer support Oct 31, 2019

    By chickadee78
    If you’re thinking of downloading this game, don’t do it. I’ve been playing this game almost a year now and really enjoying it; however, I’ve been having problems with one of the GMs. I’ve repeatedly asked for his supervisor’s direct contact info, but they refuse to give me that info. Evan is incredibly rude and ineffective as a GM, as he doesn’t read your questions before sending a response. This is a waste of time for GMs and players alike. Evan’s most recent response to me was, “Obviously, you're a super genius that can figure things out with clear logic. With that skill,you will definitely win this week Kvk. Wish you good luck.” Trust me when I tell you this was biting sarcasm, not a compliment. Who do we complain to when customer support refuses to escalate our issues? They must have supervisors, but they won’t let you speak to them. Every time I have a problem, Evan is the one who responds. It seems purposeful. He refuses to allow me to speak to any other GM even after repeated requests. Don’t get sucked into this game. You might get stuck with Evan the inept.
  • Pay to play... Nov 2, 2018

    By Gunanwing
    The rich will own you ... it’s not a game you can play without being forced to bow down to the biggest spenders... even at the top ... the power levels are so extremely overdone. The game was ruined when they introduced the legendary levels... but had to give the big spenders what they wanted.. total control of a server... and there is nothing you or your entire alliance can do about a single player.. even if your only 2 levels lower and even if you wanted to retaliate... there is a 5 minute timer... so they basically lay waste to your entire alliance while you wait for five minutes... all for any attack to fail miserably anyway... so now you sit... zero troops to gather and no resources to train any ... so how do you get back... yep... better spend some money .. or it’s months ... yes months ... to get even close to where you were ... do your self and keep looking .. the developers don’t care ...your response proves my point ! lol... do you even read these? Those one stars adding up quick... deleted app...
  • Use to like ROK Apr 21, 2019

    By independent9702
    Recently the Rise of Kings creators have been making it harder and harder for people to grow and excel in the game. A big part of this game is gathering resources and to collect resources many people have separate accounts in which they use to farm and play dragon challenge on to receive rss crates. The resource crates were a huge advantage in this game and now the game has made all crates from dragon challenge protected so they cannot be shared between accounts. Basically the game has become more and more of a money grab by the ROK creators. They make excuses as they don’t want to overload servers with extra castles used as farms, if this was the case then why allow farms in a game? Played the game 3 years in kingdom 7 and they have made it more difficult to grow with these protected rss from almost every event, the kingdom has been dead for over 2 years and we have begged support for merges which they finally came out with but not for our kingdom. The support staff is not so helpful at times and the game has many bugs.

    By Mohan Study Point a
    This game is very nice but without money a player cannot get theme,privilege points, fast development n so on and so on. Why you developers give some thing without money?...... A least a person can get it by harder way but not only option is to buy and otherwise go to hell they dont care..... This game is really nice so please dont make it ruin..... Do something about this matter.....
  • Poor policies along with support. It is awful! Jan 5, 2019

    By EmieBil
    I have played this game for awhile. The support is the worse I have ever encountered. They made an error that banned me from my alliance chat first. Then, there were players telling other players to kill them selves and no real actions was taken but a 24 hour block to Kingdom chat. In addition to direct violation of terms of service from another player was reported with screenshots only to be overlooked. The final insult was when they deleted my farms for no valid reason. We are talking about 8 farms when other players have over 30 farms. They were deleted I believe because of where I placed them in an enemy alliance. Support caved to complaints from the enemy alliance with no valid reason. As it states nowhere in policies the number of accounts a player can hold. Do not waste your money or time! I am stuck, as I will stay to help my alliance with no real game support. The support staff does as it feels, and not as rules and polices dictate. Just Stay away!
  • The game needs to slow down with the pricy updates Jan 6, 2021

    By ROK_Player
    I like this game and have spent a lot to develop my castle and my kingdom. But recently too many updates that cost 2-3K each to max. This put a lot of burden on me even if I am considered one of the mega spenders. I strongly advice the ROK team to slow down with their upgrades and take care of smaller players because if they quit we will no longer find someone to fight and most kingdoms will go to oblivion. As a quick fix 1. You need to merge the kingdoms which didn’t make it to the top 128 tournament, no need to wait. 2. Release not expensive, easy to get upgrades that can help small players to defend their castles (castles attack is not a challenge anymore). 3. Slow down on dragons and other strategic heroes because the gap is huge between spenders and non spenders already and no need to add more to it. 4. Add more free events that could bridge some of the gaps between mega, medium and non spenders. I hope ROK team will respond to players demands before everyone quits.
