  • I’m happy the game is finally out. But… Jul 4, 2021

    By Jamesh160
    I’m really glad that this game is on mobile now for IOS. And I actually love it for the most part. But trying to private message people is really tough. Whenever I tap on someone’s name on my friends list. The chat box doesn’t even show the persons name I’m messaging. So then when I look at the “All chat screen” , it’ll show me that I sent the message to the wrong person. So then I have to go back to my friends list and hold on to someone’s name and then select to message the correct person. But still when your typing in the chat box. You can’t even tell who you’re messaging until you send the message and check the main chat screen afterwards. I can’t even imagine what boss fighting would be like when someone is trying to private message you. Also I like that it’s easy to tap locations. But when you’re trying to tap icons, the game thinks your trying to tap a location instead. And that can be pretty annoying. Also I feel like the currency pouch should be in a better location below the inventory or maybe somewhere else when you’re actually walking around and playing the game. I hate having to search for things on my screen through icons trying to find the currency pouch. I also feel like it’s hard to tap locations on the mini map. So instead I have to zoom out on my actual game screen and tap on locations in front of me. Overall though I like that it’s on mobile now. But yeah some of those things are really annoying.

    I cannot log in, I have tried uninstalling, and reinstalling... I am going through the login loop, and a thorough google search shows that this is an ongoing problem, and no apparent fixes. I will happily change my rating, if this can be resolved. Edit: the next reinstall seemed to fix it. I will update again after furthered use.

    I played this game pretty much through on PC, unlocking most zones and finishing most quests. It’s an incredibly good classic RPG that you can really sink your teeth into. A true role-playing game, where you’re a character in a deep storyline, with agency (even though this one is quite linear it’s still very deep). I just started a brand new account and plan to play it through again from the start. Trying to let the quests guide my skill progression this time and limit the skill grinding. My only gripes right now are that the mobile interface has some minor stability issues and doesn’t give the seamless on/off exit/re-entry you expect from mobile. Maybe kick me right out to main login sooner instead of forcing me through a useless dialog telling me the connection failed. Also, I haven’t figured out how to easily customize the order of execution of combat skills. I should be able to drag them across the actual bar rather than having to start from scratch each time I want to reorder them. Also, the threshold and ultimate abilities aren’t being triggered by revolution. I won’t be messing with those huge ability buttons taking up half the interface, and I prefer full automation anyway, so this means only basic abilities for me until it’s fixed.

    I'm having the same issue as a previous review below, on a strong Android data network but still won't launch the mobile version of Runescape unless I connect to WiFi at home. I'm sure this is all new so and Runescape runs great on my PC but I'd like to try this mobile version sometime soon.

    I’ve been waiting for the RuneScape app to be put on the IOS store for a long time. I felt like RuneScape makes sense on a mobile device and I think it’s the perfect place for RuneScape to grow its user base. There are however a couple of things I think need to be worked on. The most important thing right now is the clicking of buttons in the game. It’s VERY difficult to click buttons in the game. The game experience suffers as a result. It’s difficult to do much of anything the game needs you to do. Things that should be simple like messaging friends, navigating menus, or simply even closing a few of them are incredibly tedious and rage inducing to have to deal with. I understand there needs to be some compromises in this mobile version of the game but it genuinely feels like I’m fighting to play a game I normally enjoy relaxing with. The old school runescape app handles much better and I think I would prefer playing that over this on a more consistent basis but if this game can manage to fix some of its UI issues I can easily see myself playing this much more and I think I could get more friends to play this RuneScape version too. I hope those issues are resolved because I really do wanna give this a 5 stars but cannot in its current state.

    This is one of the greatest MMOs out there. To finally see it come to mobile is a joy for me, as so many people overlook this game now because of its development. This game has come so far since the release of EoC and the departure from the Old-School format. EoC was a big point of issue for a lot of players in the past, but the Revolution update completely streamlined the combat again and made it much more enjoyable in both afk combat and more challenging encounters. Not only that but this game has had new skills, locations, bosses, quests and all kinds of content added in over the years. For old players; If EoC was the reason you quit back then, give the game a try now and you might find it can scratch that itch that Rs2 combat used to scratch. For new players give this game a try because it’s an amazing and fun MMO that you can find many hours of adventure in. This is already a game you can sink a lot of hours into, but if you want a real challenge, give Ironman mode a go and really see what it’s like to journey to max level! Don’t forget this game is on Steam as well as its own Client!

    Great game although a couple of improvements for tablet users would be nice. The game needs to be resizable in Samsung DEX and could also use better mouse and keyboard support like old school already has.

    It's been quite good for mobile. Just wish it was easier to hit a lot of smaller buttons, it also seems like I have to tap above what I'm trying to press
  • Love this game, mobile needs work Jun 30, 2021

    By mattlombardi
    I have been a die-hard Runescape fan for 15 years now. I was incredibly excited when I found out that it was going to be put on mobile, and figured I’d be spending countless hours playing this in bed when I didn’t feel like sitting at my PC. Unfortunately, I am not playing it as much as I expected, simply because of the fact that it just doesn’t perform well. Don’t get me wrong, the graphics are just as great as they are on PC and the gameplay is amazing, but clicking buttons in this game takes NUMEROUS attempts before it actually works, particularly on menus. It can become extremely tedious and annoying, especially when you are trying to look at the map or look at quest details. It pains me to give Runescape 4 stars instead of a solid 5, but the mobile app really just needs more work. I just get too annoyed playing it, and much rather play on my PC. Please, Jagex, try to fix this! I want to be able to play more on my phone, and come back to give you the 5 stars.

    I have one complaint but it's a big complaint. You have to hold tap in this game a lot. Hold tap control is awful, game registers a single tap if your finger moves even a bit. The needs more tolerance added to make it more usable. I know it's a pc game ported mobile but the user interface usability just isn't there. I actively avoid many activities due to mobile interface not being suited for them. Single tap mode isnt really a solution as it makes way way more taps necessary.

    I will leave my rating a 2 as long as I have the same issue happening. I am able to open the game on a wifi connection and play it, I can even turn wifi off after starting it on wifi. But the game does not seem to launch when I am using cellular data. I am running a Motorola G8, so I can only assume it's not a hardware issue.
  • Wow it.. it doesn’t work. Jun 16, 2021

    By MiindTriick
    I have been a long time old school RuneScape fan, and the mobile version runs fantastic! But uh.. this.. this was disappointing.. I figured “hey it’s new.. so it’ll have a few bugs, but they should have most of them out since it was a preorder. They will make sure you can atleast play right? Wrong. It’s like a hoarders house, bugs everywhere! Sure maybe if you don’t tap exactly on the arrows to talk, it won’t register, but it takes like two seconds after pressing the arrow, and if you slightly miss the mark it cancels the conversation and that fat mayor loves to talk in one string. Combat, let’s kill the trolls! Just let everyone have about 5-8 seconds of practice swinging before anyone starts dealing damage or before the troll even notices you. But none the less, I did it. I inspired the city to run the trolls out! Weehee!!! Who are you stranger? No one, Mayor… no one.. because after I made my character as cool as I could, but I guess I was too cool for RuneScape. It was stunned! I was looking so cool the [Done] button would do absolutely nothing. So I gave it a moment to collect itself, and closed out and opened back up the app. You ready for me yet game? 😂 hahahaha.. No. don’t give our hopes up with a date when you can’t have it ready.

  • Gamebreaking Mobile Bug Jun 20, 2021

    By 365Lion
    Don’t waste your time or money. I was playing for the first time on mobile today and opened up my internet browser to assist in locating where I can mine a specific type of ore. Upon swiping back into the RS app, I was stuck at a black screen that said “Loading..” I closed the app and logged back in, and to my surprise my account was banned due to Macroing which is an unappealable ban... I understand taking security seriously, but your app needs fixed if it thinks that using Google for mining locations is cheating. Good thing I haven’t spent money on the game in a while. I submitted a ticket on their website, but this literally broke my ability to even try the app. Would not recommend. *Edit: Dear Jagex, I’ve already submitted the only ticket I’m able to, as your system doesn’t allow me to submit a ticket for the type of ban I received for switching apps. Your app registered a google search as cheating, which is so ridiculous the Jagex representative doesn’t even believe it happened. Obviously they’re unaware of what could cause this, thanks for making a broken mobile version that cost me my account.
  • Crashes every five seconds Jun 28, 2021

    By SecondGameSucks
    On ipad gen 5, which is the minimum requirement of an ipad to run Runescape. Would be less frustrating if you just prevented gen 5 ipads from downloading it, rather than being able to play five seconds at a time before crashing. Runescape isn’t worth the time it takes to boot up the PC, but I’d happily play it on mobile. If you’d quote proper requirements for it, anyway… Reply to dev response: “Check for updates, lol” was the equivalent to what was said. Ah, yes, my bad, it MUST be my fault your game crashes and is poorly optimized. Let me just check for updates as you requested… oh wait, I was competent enough to check for updates AFTER multiple crashes but BEFORE commenting here? Huh. Interesting. Yeah, doll, that’s generally the first action taken before complaining. To add to the list of garbage, subbing changes your task Yak Track Task! So after subbing to get to higher level runespan to complete this GARBAGE task, I find you’ve now CHANGED my current task and reset the progress! Y’know. The whole reason I subbed. To complete that garbage task. And now you’ve screwed me. But you’ve got my money, right?
  • Selling your personal info to third parties scammers Jul 9, 2021

    By 3_peckered-moose
    Soon after downloading and playing RuneScape. I began to receive annoying scam marketing phone calls from all over the world around the clock to my home phone and pornographic texts to go to pornographic websites to my kids cell phone. Turns out that Jagex sells your personal information to anyone. If you try to opt out from this on Jagex’s website, the process is broken and unable to complete. The website is rigged to not allow you to finish opting out which is illegal in EU law and in US law. I have deleted RuneScape in hopes that the unsolicited, annoying and pornographic scam communications will end. It is a shame, RuneScape had great potential. But a company that will sell your information to scammers and solicitors of pornography so they can contact underage children to lure them to their website is disgusting to say the least. Had I known Jagex sold my information without care to scammers and pornographers, I never ever would have let my kids play this game. I would rate this game 0 stars if I could just for this.
  • Ok, but point-click is not for us Jun 23, 2021

    By Jim Groves
    I don’t have anything especially negative to say about RuneScape. It looks fun and casual and I like the mobile aspect of playing a MMO where I want. In regards to what I’m about to write, me and my wife are new to Runescape, and apparently there is some history about my critique. We just didn’t enjoy the click-to-move controls. At all. Especially with a lot of menus, but also just because it doesn’t work for us with the sort of game. It’s fine with Diablo, for example, but this is not that sort of game. I even logged in on my PC to check for WASD or controller support. I kept moving the camera when I tried to walk around. I’ll even go so far as to say the pathfinding works good, but the controls make it no fun to play. When I googled Runescape and “point and click controls” I found out this has been a frequently mentioned issue for many years. Sorry to say, my wife and I both cancelled our free trials. If a touch joystick were available, we would reconsider.

  • Poor mobile experience Jun 19, 2021

    By Mdawth
    I see how this game can get very deep and interesting but the mobile experience has been poor for me. Trying to click the small menus and prompts in the interface range from annoying to flat out frustrating. I had to restart the dialogue with turiel at one point for the combat quests 7 or 8 times because I didn’t click the perfect spot, causing me to restart the entire dialogue. The screen is also completely cluttered with a mass of menus and options that is difficult to navigate and manage. It feels less like an immersive rpg and more like an incremental clicker with all the button clicks and distractions. While I was hoping for a bit of a nostalgia trip with this game(I played back in high school) this mobile version left me nothing but frustrated. I think the pc version would probably be worthwhile, but this mobile version is very disappointing for me.

    Sad to see how People THINK there's a paywall. There is NO PAYWALL. This is not a game you play for 2 days. You play for years. LOOK AT GUIDES ON YOUTUBE! Membership can be bought through ingame coins, which, once you're familiar with the game, can EASILY earn enough gold to upkeep membership ONLY through ingame coins. For GODSAKE people, don't play for 2 days and think there's a pay wall. I've played for 15 years and still play, I can purchase anything I want through ingame coins.

    It's Runescape. It's now also on my phone. It's pretty great. Developers did some serious black magic adjusting the interfaces for mobile. Phone does warm up if playing on high graphics for long, but otherwise everything runs smoothly. Anyway, there are always things to do, whether you feel like afking or going full piano on your action bar. There are tons of lore from silly to cosmic horror. Sometimes both. May or may not have lead to a death of a god by helping a guy bake a cake. Quests are amazing that way. And you have a whole parallel universe to check out in the form of Oldschool Runescape."What if they made a different choice in 2007?" actually has an answer. Just have fun. It's a journey, will get all those levels and xp eventually. No need to go full efficiency from level one. Unless efficiency is fun. Then break out the wiki, PVM encyclopedia, and a couple dozen spreadsheets.
  • Wonderful game Jun 23, 2021

    By theonedudenamedian
    As far as mobile goes, I think maybe there are some optimization things to work on. As far as the game goes, this is one of the best games I’ve ever played. There might be some issues as mobile is initiated but jagex pays a lot of attention to reviews of players and improve the game constantly based on what the player base wants. This game is like the most in depth and long running game of dungeons and dragons I’ve ever seen. It’s incredibly complex, and a huge open world where you can do anything you want. Great distraction for people with adhd to have going on in the background so you can focus on work or homework without getting distracted elsewhere. The app will only get better with time, and the game will be the same level of amazing that it has maintained since before y2k

    I can imagine how difficult it was to port all those menus, and job well done. On the whole, RuneScape is a game meant to be fully enjoyed on Desktop, and this port will be difficult for new players. The best use of this port is if you want to relax on your couch to do more menial skilling, and for people who already know how this game works, that's great. Only issue is that the X buttons are too small and lag sometimes registers camera movement drag into a click. Overall a great companion port.
  • Very Excited Jun 17, 2021

    By Brirrrri
    I am so excited to see RuneScape on my phone now!! It’s perfect to just hold in my hand and play for a relaxing evening. It’s just as convenient as playing with my Switch on the go, but more so! The controls are super mobile friendly and it’s easy to pick up, even if you’ve never played. I’ve been wanting a good mobile RPG, so what’s better then RuneScape? The only issue I have is a lot of the time the screen touches aren’t responsive. I’ll press on the screen to interact and it takes quite a few touches to get it to work. Also, the character movement is a little slow. All in all I am very happy and would like to thank the developers for making this happen. I understand there are still kinks to work out, but it runs pretty beautifully on my iPhone 12 Pro.
  • I’m happy the game is finally out. But… Jul 4, 2021

    By Jamesh160
    I’m really glad that this game is on mobile now for IOS. And I actually love it for the most part. But trying to private message people is really tough. Whenever I tap on someone’s name on my friends list. The chat box doesn’t even show the persons name I’m messaging. So then when I look at the “All chat screen” , it’ll show me that I sent the message to the wrong person. So then I have to go back to my friends list and hold on to someone’s name and then select to message the correct person. But still when your typing in the chat box. You can’t even tell who you’re messaging until you send the message and check the main chat screen afterwards. I can’t even imagine what boss fighting would be like when someone is trying to private message you. Also I like that it’s easy to tap locations. But when you’re trying to tap icons, the game thinks your trying to tap a location instead. And that can be pretty annoying. Also I feel like the currency pouch should be in a better location below the inventory or maybe somewhere else when you’re actually walking around and playing the game. I hate having to search for things on my screen through icons trying to find the currency pouch. I also feel like it’s hard to tap locations on the mini map. So instead I have to zoom out on my actual game screen and tap on locations in front of me. Overall though I like that it’s on mobile now. But yeah some of those things are really annoying.

    It's been quite good for mobile. Just wish it was easier to hit a lot of smaller buttons, it also seems like I have to tap above what I'm trying to press
  • Love this game, mobile needs work Jun 30, 2021

    By mattlombardi
    I have been a die-hard Runescape fan for 15 years now. I was incredibly excited when I found out that it was going to be put on mobile, and figured I’d be spending countless hours playing this in bed when I didn’t feel like sitting at my PC. Unfortunately, I am not playing it as much as I expected, simply because of the fact that it just doesn’t perform well. Don’t get me wrong, the graphics are just as great as they are on PC and the gameplay is amazing, but clicking buttons in this game takes NUMEROUS attempts before it actually works, particularly on menus. It can become extremely tedious and annoying, especially when you are trying to look at the map or look at quest details. It pains me to give Runescape 4 stars instead of a solid 5, but the mobile app really just needs more work. I just get too annoyed playing it, and much rather play on my PC. Please, Jagex, try to fix this! I want to be able to play more on my phone, and come back to give you the 5 stars.

    Love the game. But I am not able to start the app on my phone. The game is up-to-date, but when I try to start the game, it crashes after a second or two.
  • Great game overall Jun 16, 2021

    I’ve played a form of this game for the majority of my life. The best version I’ve played is this version (technically RuneScape 3), notably ON IRONMAN MODE. The issues that come with this game primarily come from microtransactions and over-the-top promotions. However, Ironman mode lets you play the game the way you want to, only limiting you from trading on the global market, which makes everything you earn feel much more rewarding as you’ve earned it by your own work. Also, avoid the subreddit community for this game. It’s really bad. There are some issues with this game that they address that are fair, such as some slow bug fixings and weak bans for exploits. However, the subreddit makes every little issue out to be the end of the world. The game is improving over time and there’s literally thousands of things you can spend thousands of hours on in this game. Let the official wiki help you out, and reach out to players since overall the actual players in the game are very kind.

    Let me say as someone who hates mobile gaming and never thought I would play RS on anything other than PC. But color me surprised after a rough first day the app works like a dream, it works better than the PC client for me. I use a small device so clicking can be a little bit of a pain and the player owned ports interface needs a little work, but I reported it and they responded immediately that they will look into it. I am not sure if I feel comfortable doing more intense activities like high end PvM but clues, quests, and general skilling absolutely. It’s the perfect companion piece to the browser game and with a little work I will probably switch to mobile full time. Give it a shot and don’t let those 1st day reviews scare you, was it rough yes but what is important is they resolved it quickly and communicated it effectively.

    Coming from the beta and PC, a lot has been improved. UI has been cleaned up, and I enjoy being able to play mobile. Suggestions, attempt to change the combat skill placements, as when I wish to activate a prayer or check inventory, half of my skills are gone. It is difficult to set my revolution/action bar, unlike PC where I can simply click and drag. Sometimes when I wish to drop something, it doesn't register my touch. Finally, please add an in game clock, I seriously need it sometimes.

    i changes my review for the last update, thanks the game now becomes more stable and can running well on my phone. It's very different from the first launch that's really deserve 1 star. Overall is good, and i appreciated for the fix and improvements you do. Otherwise because it's supposed to be played on mobile, especially for the controls, maybe virtual analog becomes more handy than just clicking because that's the biggest difference between playing on mobile and on PC. Thank you.

    I cannot log in, I have tried uninstalling, and reinstalling... I am going through the login loop, and a thorough google search shows that this is an ongoing problem, and no apparent fixes. I will happily change my rating, if this can be resolved. Edit: the next reinstall seemed to fix it. I will update again after furthered use.

    I'm having the same issue as a previous review below, on a strong Android data network but still won't launch the mobile version of Runescape unless I connect to WiFi at home. I'm sure this is all new so and Runescape runs great on my PC but I'd like to try this mobile version sometime soon.
  • Good game, Meh experience Jun 20, 2021

    By Jedii40
    I’ve been waiting for the RuneScape app to be put on the IOS store for a long time. I felt like RuneScape makes sense on a mobile device and I think it’s the perfect place for RuneScape to grow its user base. There are however a couple of things I think need to be worked on. The most important thing right now is the clicking of buttons in the game. It’s VERY difficult to click buttons in the game. The game experience suffers as a result. It’s difficult to do much of anything the game needs you to do. Things that should be simple like messaging friends, navigating menus, or simply even closing a few of them are incredibly tedious and rage inducing to have to deal with. I understand there needs to be some compromises in this mobile version of the game but it genuinely feels like I’m fighting to play a game I normally enjoy relaxing with. The old school runescape app handles much better and I think I would prefer playing that over this on a more consistent basis but if this game can manage to fix some of its UI issues I can easily see myself playing this much more and I think I could get more friends to play this RuneScape version too. I hope those issues are resolved because I really do wanna give this a 5 stars but cannot in its current state.

    Great game although a couple of improvements for tablet users would be nice. The game needs to be resizable in Samsung DEX and could also use better mouse and keyboard support like old school already has.
  • Overall review Updated Jun 18, 2021

    By Cat the game review
    Old review > 1) The controls are poorly made with no ways to change them it’s tap where you want to go and the game auto attacks for you i seen many MMORPG's with much better controls even the pay to win MMORPG's have better controls then this game 2) Game crashes a lot i am unsure why maybe it’s the servers could be something else but it’s really annoying and needs to be fixed 3) voice acting is ok couldn’t get far sense the game keeps crashing so i can’t speak for the mid and late game voice acting 4) Final thoughts for a company to make a game this well known so badly for mobile shows how little thought and work was put into the mobile version and it’s sad sense it will make people whom never played Runescape to view it poorly i do not recommend this game until it gets its problems fixed that being the controls and lack of ability to change them and the constant crashing. New review > Ok good news is they updated the game it runs much better there’s still things i would change but it’s improved.

    It brings back good memories. However, I don't recall it being so locked behind a paywall. Also has a major lag issue in certain areas, when even top tier games with the best graphics don't do that to my phone (Galaxy S21 Plus). This is the only major issue, as its pretty unacceptable for how simple it is graphics wise. Also, needs a way better quest guiding system. Many times you have NO clue where to go or what to do, especially for mini games. This is a huge turn off game wise, and I log off

    If you've played RuneScape before, you know what to expect here. It's a good port over for mobile for the most part. My only complaint is there seems to be some lag and delays for taking actions and using the menus. Running on a Note 20 Ultra, so my specs aren't the issue, even with framerate over 30 the action delays and menu lag are noticeable and frustrating. If that could be fixed, I would easily rate this 5 stars.
  • Worth the wait, but not the hassle Jun 19, 2021

    By Lonely LGBT
    I’ve been playing RS since OSRS transitioned to RS3 and then came back by itself. I’m happy that RS3 is finally here, but there are some things I’m not too thrilled for. As far as reading chats go, I never thought I’d have to read from the bottom to the top instead of top to bottom like all game chats go. I don’t know if anyone else has experienced this too, but I had a problem seeing equipped items in my hand on the normal laptop client these last few months. Sheathed weapons show up, but not when I unsheathe them. I thought this would be resolved once mobile launched but it hasn’t. I submitted a bug report in the laptop client and to my knowledge have not gotten a response. If you venture into the mobile world, this version is best played on a tablet. Otherwise it can be a hassle to tap to where you need to go in the game from your phone screen.

    I have one complaint but it's a big complaint. You have to hold tap in this game a lot. Hold tap control is awful, game registers a single tap if your finger moves even a bit. The needs more tolerance added to make it more usable. I know it's a pc game ported mobile but the user interface usability just isn't there. I actively avoid many activities due to mobile interface not being suited for them. Single tap mode isnt really a solution as it makes way way more taps necessary.

    I will leave my rating a 2 as long as I have the same issue happening. I am able to open the game on a wifi connection and play it, I can even turn wifi off after starting it on wifi. But the game does not seem to launch when I am using cellular data. I am running a Motorola G8, so I can only assume it's not a hardware issue.
  • Ok, but point-click is not for us Jun 23, 2021

    By Jim Groves
    I don’t have anything especially negative to say about RuneScape. It looks fun and casual and I like the mobile aspect of playing a MMO where I want. In regards to what I’m about to write, me and my wife are new to Runescape, and apparently there is some history about my critique. We just didn’t enjoy the click-to-move controls. At all. Especially with a lot of menus, but also just because it doesn’t work for us with the sort of game. It’s fine with Diablo, for example, but this is not that sort of game. I even logged in on my PC to check for WASD or controller support. I kept moving the camera when I tried to walk around. I’ll even go so far as to say the pathfinding works good, but the controls make it no fun to play. When I googled Runescape and “point and click controls” I found out this has been a frequently mentioned issue for many years. Sorry to say, my wife and I both cancelled our free trials. If a touch joystick were available, we would reconsider.
  • Wow it.. it doesn’t work. Jun 16, 2021

    By MiindTriick
    I have been a long time old school RuneScape fan, and the mobile version runs fantastic! But uh.. this.. this was disappointing.. I figured “hey it’s new.. so it’ll have a few bugs, but they should have most of them out since it was a preorder. They will make sure you can atleast play right? Wrong. It’s like a hoarders house, bugs everywhere! Sure maybe if you don’t tap exactly on the arrows to talk, it won’t register, but it takes like two seconds after pressing the arrow, and if you slightly miss the mark it cancels the conversation and that fat mayor loves to talk in one string. Combat, let’s kill the trolls! Just let everyone have about 5-8 seconds of practice swinging before anyone starts dealing damage or before the troll even notices you. But none the less, I did it. I inspired the city to run the trolls out! Weehee!!! Who are you stranger? No one, Mayor… no one.. because after I made my character as cool as I could, but I guess I was too cool for RuneScape. It was stunned! I was looking so cool the [Done] button would do absolutely nothing. So I gave it a moment to collect itself, and closed out and opened back up the app. You ready for me yet game? 😂 hahahaha.. No. don’t give our hopes up with a date when you can’t have it ready.

  • Gamebreaking Mobile Bug Jun 20, 2021

    By 365Lion
    Don’t waste your time or money. I was playing for the first time on mobile today and opened up my internet browser to assist in locating where I can mine a specific type of ore. Upon swiping back into the RS app, I was stuck at a black screen that said “Loading..” I closed the app and logged back in, and to my surprise my account was banned due to Macroing which is an unappealable ban... I understand taking security seriously, but your app needs fixed if it thinks that using Google for mining locations is cheating. Good thing I haven’t spent money on the game in a while. I submitted a ticket on their website, but this literally broke my ability to even try the app. Would not recommend. *Edit: Dear Jagex, I’ve already submitted the only ticket I’m able to, as your system doesn’t allow me to submit a ticket for the type of ban I received for switching apps. Your app registered a google search as cheating, which is so ridiculous the Jagex representative doesn’t even believe it happened. Obviously they’re unaware of what could cause this, thanks for making a broken mobile version that cost me my account.
  • Crashes every five seconds Jun 28, 2021

    By SecondGameSucks
    On ipad gen 5, which is the minimum requirement of an ipad to run Runescape. Would be less frustrating if you just prevented gen 5 ipads from downloading it, rather than being able to play five seconds at a time before crashing. Runescape isn’t worth the time it takes to boot up the PC, but I’d happily play it on mobile. If you’d quote proper requirements for it, anyway… Reply to dev response: “Check for updates, lol” was the equivalent to what was said. Ah, yes, my bad, it MUST be my fault your game crashes and is poorly optimized. Let me just check for updates as you requested… oh wait, I was competent enough to check for updates AFTER multiple crashes but BEFORE commenting here? Huh. Interesting. Yeah, doll, that’s generally the first action taken before complaining. To add to the list of garbage, subbing changes your task Yak Track Task! So after subbing to get to higher level runespan to complete this GARBAGE task, I find you’ve now CHANGED my current task and reset the progress! Y’know. The whole reason I subbed. To complete that garbage task. And now you’ve screwed me. But you’ve got my money, right?
  • Selling your personal info to third parties scammers Jul 9, 2021

    By 3_peckered-moose
    Soon after downloading and playing RuneScape. I began to receive annoying scam marketing phone calls from all over the world around the clock to my home phone and pornographic texts to go to pornographic websites to my kids cell phone. Turns out that Jagex sells your personal information to anyone. If you try to opt out from this on Jagex’s website, the process is broken and unable to complete. The website is rigged to not allow you to finish opting out which is illegal in EU law and in US law. I have deleted RuneScape in hopes that the unsolicited, annoying and pornographic scam communications will end. It is a shame, RuneScape had great potential. But a company that will sell your information to scammers and solicitors of pornography so they can contact underage children to lure them to their website is disgusting to say the least. Had I known Jagex sold my information without care to scammers and pornographers, I never ever would have let my kids play this game. I would rate this game 0 stars if I could just for this.
