  • Game is nice Jan 7, 2021

    By GoldenWO1F
    I wasn't sure about this game at first but when i saw how the character leveling and how important it is to upgrade your people on the nostalgic menu i was hooked. Weird way to stay but this game is not as bad as the other builders when it comes to your base and you can research build speed almost right away. Im already headquarters level 5 and i gotta say i cant wait to progress and get as far as i can. The puzzle gameplay is as shows. Its really fun and when you match a certain number you get a grenade or flashbang which sets off multiple puzzle matches. And every match goes toward you characters abilities. Each character has one and i have to say Doc is my favorite because no matter how much of a beating my team takes. As long as i make a few matches with the same element as him or whatever it is he heals my entire party for a chunk of their health. So yea this game is pretty good and satisfying when you make big plays. Id recommend it to anyone.

    I really enjoy this game. there are powerful and complex characters you gain throughout the world, and it also has a interesting way of keeping you entertained, you can match shapes and colors while in battle to get powerful attacks, and they also include raiding or aiding other online players with their camps, and you can build multiple camps after you’ve reached level 8 Or higher on your HQ. you can also add friends and form alliances, which is a good way to keep your camps protected from being raided or attacked by other players or stray zombies. I’m also impressed that they included some of the main characters to have voice acted commentary, Most RPG Mobil games don’t provide that, and I’d like to see more of that in the future. I really can’t think of any negative things to say about this game, the only thing I could suggest would be adding more storylines, and to add more areas to explore, some new characters from familiar franchises would look nice in the game as well, and would be a good way to bring in more players. I would definitely recommend this to friends who enjoy puzzles and strategy, or Just RPG zombie mobile games in general, because if they like games like that, I guarantee they will enjoy this one too.

    If your after a FTP this is not the game for you. It's pay wall is very fierce. And if you get sucked in and spend a large amount to be competitive it means absolutely nothing as after the first 30d or so events go global and suddenly your not in competition with the big spenders on your server but all the servers in your group. And at 40 days your server opens to immigration from any server. So you might be in the top ten on your server for 39 days then day 40 *BAM* your 59th and someones farm.

  • Fun game, but needs fixes Nov 26, 2020

    By Keagan Turner
    I’ve been playing for a few weeks, currently level 7, and I have a decent amount of resources... or so I thought until a level 30 decided to attack my town 10 times within 30 minutes and take everything from me. Literally, I have no resources left and I had about 10 million food and close to the same in wood. This is completely unfair as I don’t have a lot of money to buy shields and I’m being attacked non stop by someone who is more than 20 levels above me. The puzzle games are fun, but seriously. If it was a one time thing, fine. So be it. But it’s multiple times the exact same person. It’s like playing clash of clans, being a town hall 4, and being attacked by a town hall 12 multiple times over and over until you have nothing left. My advice, if you don’t want your phone to blow up because you are being attacked over and over again or you don’t have a lot of money to rank up fast, stay away from the game. If this continues, I will be deleting the game tonight. Game creator, fix your game. Nobody wants this bs.

  • Hybrid Game Feb 6, 2021

    By jwizmo
    This game is combining elements from different types of games with the puzzle matching and the base building components. It does provide a unique feel to the game play unlike others I've played. But it is essentially a joining of those genres. As far as the interface, the coloring scheme is muted and that sometimes makes shades difficult to distinguish. Such as the coins used to exchange for Heroes. That could be improved a little too make it clearer. In general, I feel like I don't have any idea how much of various resources I have when I'm making purchases. At the lower level I am, it hasn't mattered yet. Being able to join a Guild almost immediately was refreshing, that doesn't typically happen in other games into you've figured out the mechanics. As soon as the Tutorial is done here, you can essentially join a Guild, which makes speeding up the building etc a bonus.

    This game is a lot fun in the beginning. A lot to do and build. But the building aspect doesn't last long enough in my opinion . Once your sanctuary is filled then it's just upgrading those buildings. Which takes a ridiculous amount of resources and time the longer you play. 4 Days to upgrade one building one level? Ridiculous. Hero battles are very boring. Same thing over and over. Special events are abundant however. Game gets repetitive very quickly.

  • An hour of gameplay Feb 18, 2021

    By litfuse293
    Literally an entire hour of it telling you where to tap. An hour of it telling you to spend resources and speed ups you probably don’t even want to use literally non stop. Honestly i completely lost any interest in the story because i just want to PLAY, i actually want to experience the game, and an hour of tutorial didn’t even cover other stuff- you literally need to cover a whole CHAPTER to learn anything else. What is this resource? What are these boosts? How do i get them? What does this mean? How do i do this thing? I don’t know, but it’s telling me to use them. It’s so frustrating, i literally said out load “oh my god, just let me play the game”. I hate apps which tutorials FORCES you to spend materials i would love to save for later, and if you think the same way then this app isn’t for you. If you love sitting through an hour+ of the game constantly telling you what to do literally non stop, and spending resources you could save up for better choices. if you love them waving five star characters in your face by letting you use their abilities that insta kill bosses and then tell you “you need to pay for this”. If you love gathering resources without even knowing what they do because the tutorial literally covers everything except what you want to know, then you bet this app is for you. It’s been frustrating, confusing, irritating and all around a terrible experience right out the gate.

    Nope. A) gameplay is nothing like the ads b) other players can apparently attack your city as many times as they want while you're away, disabling all of your troops. (A very important resource) healing the disabled troops will take more than a day. So that very important part of the game is disabled for more than a day, stopping major progress. Glad i didnt invest any money or more time in this stupid, terribly flawed game

    The ads for this game were showing something else very different from the actual gameplay. The only thing that matches is that this is a match 3 puzzle game with zombies for 20% of the time and a idle city building game for the rest 80% of time, and that's it. There is no heal the zombies, no getting better gear in fights, no looting buildings, fake advertising.

    The game got boring fast. You build.your city back up and such like other games, recruit heroes as well, but for what? There are no "wars" between Guilds. There's no pvp at all, unless you count arena. I mean fighting zombies is ok I guess, but I would rather be investing in characters to fight other players. Instead its all about going out and fighting zombies. Boring

  • My highest praise Nov 22, 2020

    By CPCVMN
    The highest praise I can give this game is that in the 48 hours or so I have had this game I have wasted 7 - 8 hours. Which for me is about 90% of my phone usage. I don’t normally get pulled into a phone game like that. Nice combination of puzzle, fighting strategy, PVE, PVP and building strategy. Just when you start running out of energy or build queues or whatever you move on to another segment of the game and keep going. It is most definitely worth the download. The ability to play without spending any money and no advertising makes this the perfect game for someone like me. Makes me more likely to spend money in the future if I get to a point that I see a character or item I just can’t live without. If you like zombie - download this game If you like gem puzzles - download this game If you like PvP tournaments - download this game If you like cooperative play - download this game If you like building and expansion - download this game Etc. Get the picture. Ps. Some developer has a crush on Amanda Seyfried methinks. Just take a look at Amber and tell me I am crazy.

  • Ad’s Feb 16, 2021

    By Dragonwolph
    Every time I see an ad for this game it makes me hate it more and more! At first the character is successful by solving a mini game and then dies when it gets to an easier mini game! It makes me think that the developers have a mental issue and can’t solve the easy puzzles! So the ad’s are a warning not to play this game because it will make you too stupid to solve the easier puzzles! Thank you for the warning and I have deleted the game before I could get past the intro! I give it 5 stars because it saved me the trouble of wasting my time!

    This game has a bit of everything. Never been really big on the whole Massive world ran by alliance's that hunt the weak players for resources they don't have, but at it's core this is a match gem game. So far I'm okay with putting some time towards it. Maybe if i find an alliance that is active and helpful, I'll discover this is infact a good casual game to get it in on. Illustrations are great. (Gem fight-gather resources-upgrade camp, and players) rinse, repeat.

  • This could be fun IF you enjoy alliances Jan 2, 2021

    By Parenting Young Adults
    This game doesn’t appear to be one you can solo play. I wish that had been in the description BEFORE I downloaded it. They want you to join alliances and you will be subject to people from all over the world & different time zones raiding your site. So, if you put a lot of effort in the beginning...know that it’s easy for strong unscrupulous players to take advantage of new players lack of experience and raid you site for everything. Unless you pay for “shields” that protect you when you’re not on; kiss your supplies good bye. If you don’t have so much free time on your hands to constantly be on playing and fighting off raiders it is discouraging. Ask questions of what the alliances expect from you as a player before joining. If they demand more time and ability than you can give choose another alliance.

  • One of the better pvp builder games Feb 2, 2021

    By Carnix
    I typically hate these kinds of games. They’re always fun at first, but before you get anywhere powerful (unless you drop tons of $$), heavy pay-to-win types are busy plundering you repeatedly. This game is the same... except one major thing: You get a ton of resource boost items for completing events and dailies. I mean millions worth. Save them, don’t use them as you get them!! You’ll be prompted to use some of you try to do an action and need more. Those items can’t be plundered, so this way you can grown and evolve even while the pirates are hitting you. It makes this game, out of all the other similar games, actually playable... or at least playable much longer than they usually are anyway. Enjoy!

  • rich, but needs frequent attention Dec 9, 2020

    By jeff204vk
    This game was not at all what I expected from the ads I saw before downloading it, but it does have a lot going for it. There are a bunch of features included. Map exploration, events, leveling up of troops and gear, pvp, pve - you name it, this app has it. Beyond a certain level, though, players need to log in frequently, and to spend real money, or be farmed. My sanctuary got reconnoitered and attacked repeatedly while I was logged off, until my resources were mostly gone. Relocating didn’t really help, I was just found and attacked again. I don’t have the time and funds to go further. Those with time and money to burn, however, might be able to get even more out of this one.

    Generally this is a pretty decent game however there are certain aspects that are really poor. Hero battle is a Joke so unbalanced when finding opponents of equal level. Puzzles have fixed outcome if they don't want you to win you won't. Waiting times and resource costs are ridiculous and are not balanced especially steel collection. Almost impossible to become a top player and compete for higher rewards due to the imbalance of player levels and main event restrictions

    Seems okay. Entertaining, but you're not getting anywhere without spending $. And forget the amazing stats. You buy heroes at level 1. Had I known, I wouldn't have bought them. It also doesn't do a good job of explaining some things. Example: within 2 days, I had joined an alliance and was named Militarist. No idea what that entitles, and it isn't explained anywhere. Seems to be a secret only the alliance creator knows, and she hasn't told me yet.

    If you're downloading this game because of an advert you've seen then don't! The game play is a million miles away from the adverts! It's an ok game, confusing match 3 to win battles, upgrade buildings on a turf and hit monsters in a kingdom! Strangely enough my husband thought I was playing the same game as him because the layout is exactly the same! This isn't a novel concept for a game....more you spend the better your chances of progressing! But it's nothing like the adverts!

  • Meh...More for Pay to Play Sep 28, 2020

    By silvereagle2664
    Started alone based on an advertisement in another game. Pretty complicated at start with lots of things going on - build your base, build your heroes, heroes attack zombies and other players, build your army, attack zombies with your army, attack other players with your army, get allies, participate in challenges, etc. You only get one builder, so have to constantly be online to keep it busy upgrading the myriad of buildings in your base. I followed the suggested course of action diligently and once I felt I was getting the hang of it, two other well-advanced players attacked me and wiped my army out. I wasn’t too interested in starting again, so will uninstall it. I think this is a game meant to be all-consuming and allies are important. Pay to play gets you a second builder, plus other perks like better heroes. Bottom line, if you have a lot of time and only want to play one game, this might be it. For a casual player, I wouldn’t recommend it.

  • Pretty ok except the false advertising Nov 23, 2020

    By Memnarc
    This is another one of those games that advertises one thing and then the actual game is completely different. I’ll give the game designers that the graphics are great and there is at least a match 3 mechanic, but that’s about as far as I can go with the compliments. As is typical these days, the bulk of the game content requires you to join an alliance. No alliance, no progress. Also, the character leveling starts slowing down substantially fairly shortly into the game. This means that once again, no alliance, no content. There are opportunities at every corner for transactions from small to large, but like most others in this vein, you can be a whale or dawdle at the back of the bus. The game even had the audacity to ask what the best way to advertise to get people is was. Well designer peeps, try not advertising something different than what the game actually has.

    Ads are very deceptive. This game has nothing in common with ads. I would not recommend. It's a different game essentially, a base building rather than puzzle solving. And these in-game purchases labelled as $5 instead of $200... Give me a break, not even possible to sell $200 item on Android...

    By far the most spend money to win driven game that I have ever seen. You will not progress without being destroyed unless you spend literally thousands of dollars. Even the "events" are geared towards spending money to get on the leader board. Game had potential considering it's just a mash up of Evony/Candycrush/FF thrown into one.

  • IMO ... horrible Oct 4, 2020

    By stritzdiesel
    The game “forces” you to learn it how it wants you to. The first day I played the game I was barely able to play how I wanted. I couldn’t take my time to enjoy how I wanted or even really play because it “makes” you proceed exactly how it wants you too. Literally can’t choose any other option while the only option to choose is the one it tells you too (flashing highlight any time you touch anywhere else on the screen) The game CONSTANTLY pops up with buy this, buy that. Spend your money on this game that you can’t even enjoy the way you want. Maybe it’s enjoyable later, but it’s not for me. I also personally hate when puzzle games highlight a move, I’ll choose a worse option simply because I want to play how I want. Maybe I’m picky, but this game just is obnoxious when it comes to having a fun time learning it and shoving in game transactions in your face. Greedy games no fun!!! Not saying you shouldn’t try it, you might like it... I don’t.
