Trouble loading 3/5
By Illest GT-R
fun game but it has not let me play for a few days now, everytime i load the game it says “stay with us for a short while as we finish downloading content” and i’ve checked the appstore multiple times and their is no update required or available. help fix?
Lvl up is difficult 3/5
What happened to the games that let all enjoy and not force less fortunate to be struggling to progress. Yea sure money talks but I put in time with this game does that count? Man where’s the love?
Good game but it gets boring maybe if you could do more with your towers and hero’s it will be better
Out of balance 3/5
I like the game - the graphics and the concept are great, but I have to agree with the others - gold is absurdly hard to earn, and stupidly expensive to buy. So first, you spend some money to buy diamonds to upgrade towers and heroes with cards, and then you realize, that you can’t upgrade them without spending 10 times the amount of money to buy gold with the diamonds. So you are stuck with a bunch of cards and no gold. And the game is getting more and more difficult, so I am not even sure how those who do not spend money on games can play it at all.
Developers, please, fix the game. You are selling hero skins that do not work. I’ve already bought 2 of the them for Kayleen - different abilities, and neither one of them works.
Thank you for fixing it so fast!
What a game 5/5
I got this game right when it came out ( with in the 1st week), love the game. I love the fact idea of fighting monsters off from your homeland. You feel like you are in the game at most by level 30.
Extremely challenging without spending LOTS of $ 4/5
An extremely well done game that can be a lot of fun except when you hit the point where it’s really, really hard to progress without spending money. The coin shortage is ridiculous. It can harm how fun the game is at times.
It was great that the game changed from needing tons of different items to level up towers and heroes to just a single card for each tower or hero, but now I have loads of cards (seriously, THOUSANDS of extras — I have 7,000 Eris cards and about 2,000 for each tower) and not enough coins to actually use the upgrade cards.
If I could sell extra cards for coins, then that would help enormously. Maybe if it takes 10,875 coins and 150 cards to upgrade a tower, then you should be able to sell 150 cards for half of the 10,875 coins (so you’d have to gather 3x as many cards as you’d normally need, since 2x would go to coins).
Also, if there were an ad when stars and coins are awarded that increases the coins received by 50%, then I would always watch that ad. I don’t bother with the ad that awards extra cards. I have too many cards already.
Oh, and it’s super annoying to watch an ad, then have the game crash at the end of the ad, but before rewards are received. If I didn’t have so many cards already (just watching ads for the chance of coins), then I’d have rage quit a bunch of times. I’d guess that the game crashes about 1 in 10 times after an ad.
Today I got a new error after an ad. After being defeated on a map, I was given the option of watching an ad so I could start with additional elixir. After the ad finished (and from the static ad page offering to download the advertised game), I clicked close and was given an error something like “You must wait for the ad to finish”, when the ad had clearly finished. I was thrown back to the game map (level selection), rather than being taken back to the map where I had been defeated, so no extra elixir for me. *sigh*
Great Game 2/5
If you like tower defense games you’ll love this. Perfect balance between difficulty and strategy needed to complete levels. Changed my rating from 4-2 because not only did the crash issue not get resolved, but now you barely get any coins to continue game.
(Update): The game’s been updated many times since my last review and the crash issue still hasn’t been solved. Starting to think it’s intentional. You watch an ad, then get nothing for it because the game crashes
Fun BUT 3/5
I’ve been playing this game for quite awhile. It’s fun but after this latest update every time I try move along the story line I get a pop up that says please stay with us while we’re loading. I find this ridiculously frustrating. So, I’m going to see if it will load the past levels at least. If not, adios.
I reduced my rating from 5 stars to 1 because the video ads don’t give the promised reward half the time. I watch the entire video and wait for it to end but it says video failed try later. It doesn’t even give you a chance to watch another video, you have to wait hours to try again and it will likely fail then to. There is nothing wrong with my internet connection.
Great game 5/5
I love tower defense games and this is one of the best I've ever played. The levels are challenging without being impossible. I haven't needed to pay to beat any of the levels, but I've bought a couple limited time offers for the alternate hero powers and to support the developers. The game is beautiful as well!
Try it out and I don't think you'll be disappointed! New content keeps being added consistently - I started playing when there were 40-50 levels and there are now almost 160. Keeping up can be a challenge!
[EDIT] New updates are always appreciated, and they keep sending them out.
Of course that means balancing is an on-going project. One of the last updates took away the ability to find hero skins in chest drops. The Soldier Chest used to give a low chance the find them, the Knight Chest had a better chance, and the Lord Chest guaranteed that you would get one.
I am willing to buy SOME skins (particularly with different abilities) as part of a package, and I only do that mostly to support the developers.
Useful drops are still too hard to get as well. Gold should not be so difficult to get if gems are the premium currency. Elixirs and reinforcements have become more rare. Perks are very random, and you still end up getting the same, not very useful ones over and over again. I'm just bogged down getting cards for towers and heroes that I have already maxed out and are just piling up. This game is still great, but there is very little replay-ability without the gauntlet or other challenges.
[RE-EDIT] Ok, thank you for the direct response, as always. I did not notice any sort of symbol next to the name of the skins before, but the only ones that I do not have unlocked are called "Gauntlet Champion" etc. so they must have been from past events that I missed.
The game is great for the genre, but I wish it were more re-playable on its own. I log on every day to beat the quests, but once that is done I find myself getting bored quickly. If there is not a gauntlet or another event going on (and that's mostly waiting on the timer), there isn't much point to replaying the regular levels since I already have perfect scores and most of the towers and heroes maxed out.
I am having fun leveling up Mason, but I do find it a bit odd that you don't actually need to use a hero to gain experience. The card system is faster, but it makes it more effective not to use new heroes...
It would be great if there were ways to reliably grind for items that are still useful like elixirs, reinforcements, perks, etc. Even if random drops were more common (especially gold) when you played levels it would make it more fun to be able to open more soldier chests.
It's fun to play levels when you can use items more freely, but I don't want to keep paying in endlessly just to keep a game interesting.
That's when it's time to find a new game.
Not Enough Gold in the Game, kinda fun. 2/5
I’m just here to complain about the Gold shortage like everyone else. I have literally thousands of extra cards but no Gold for upgrades.
Please come up with a Solution.
Pay to Play 1/5
I initially LOVED this game when I first started recently. But I’m only to chapter 8 and already have way more upgrade cards than coins. The only ways to get coins are IAP, chests and earning stars on levels. As it is now I have to wait through several days worth of daily chests to earn enough coins to actually upgrade my towers and advance further. At this point, the game is no longer playable unless I want to keep waiting days at a time. Will keep it installed for a few more weeks to see if they add new ways to earn coins in an update, but will be taking my business elsewhere until then.
Crashes every time on level 1 1/5
I’ve played this multiple times and it crashes every time on level 1. I’ve deleted and reloaded it and nothing helps.
Fun but... 3/5
Pushes in-game purchases way too hard. Don’t get this game if you don’t feel like being upsold every five minutes.
Good game but few problems 4/5
By Anal bear
IncreaSe gold output for missions
Card system ponintless 4/5
By Cedar Park Tx
You really shouldn’t have to watch so many commercials *and* have to spend money. I love the game but I no longer use cards. You level up towers and hero’s with cards you earn along the way. However, I now have 1,000+ extra cards for everything. It takes money to level up too.
Was fun 1/5
By Bleach fan 3554
It was a great game to pass the time but now every time I play keep saying please wait for updates. I even deleted it and reinstalled it still get the same thing
Video Rewards Crash 4/5
When you try to watch a video to bump up rewards the screen turns white and crashes or zooms in and freezes. Only complaint so far...
Game needs more balancing and fine tuning. 2/5
The game itself is fun for a few days, then you start running into the balancing issue.
I don’t understand how some levels you start with so much elixir and the creep difficulty ramp is smooth, while other levels you start with hardly any elixir and they throw very difficult enemies in the first round. The only way I see to beat these unbalanced levels is to use elixir boosts and reinforcements, forcing you to buy them. You do have a chance at getting these from the free knight chest, but they only open every 1.5 days, and the chance of getting the boost is very low. Either increase chance of receiving the boosts or increase the amount of elixir you receive from using the boost.
Level 26 doesn’t open 2/5
By Mr Danda
I earned 3 stars on the first 25 levels but then level 26 wouldn’t open. Why not?
Crashes a lot 2/5
Got quite far on - maybe into the 50s - and it crashed losing my progress. Started again as I like the game and now it’s crashing again. Reliability is one of the most important factors in a game so looks like I’ll be deleting it. Such a shame. Could be great.
Great game 5/5
By Old Mutant
Very nice TD game. However there is no way to farm the gold you need for upgrading heroes and towers. You are left with opening the free chests every day hoping you get some gold and the gold you get is not much. So you reach a point where you can't progress for weeks while you log in and do whatever quests you can go hope for x chest that gives a bit of gold. The gems from chests are also very few.
Still I give the game 5 stars and hope for a better resource balance in the future.
Want to play 1/5
I am on level 26. When I try to play that level it won’t start. It is unlocked. When I push play on the “Loadout” screen it makes the usual sound but nothing else happens.
Very fun game, crashes a lot 3/5
By Sardas :)
Game crashes a lot when watching ad videos to get bonuses. Sometimes it crashes and loses the level you JUST finished, which is particularly frustrating.
Aside from that it's a fun game.
The pay wall is to high 1/5
I got to level 100 and all my towers are way underpowered....all. There is no way to get more gold without paying a lot. I need to wait for one free chest a day and then hope to get gold as I have 3 stared everything. It’s a cool game but in the end I think the developers are a little to greedy.
Needs purchase restructuring 3/5
It’s a fun game but it needs a serious update where the basic in- game currency is concerned. It cannot be earned when you’re unable to progress in levels. I currently have over 100k worth of upgrades ready and no coins to purchase them. Replaying old levels grants more cards and upgrades (albeit slowly). The chests might grant some coins but the upgrades always outweigh the coins received, if any are received at all. I don’t mind paying to purchase a new aspect of the game (new hero etc...) but there should be a way to earn coins regularly to help supplement all those upgrade cards and advance in the game.
Update Crash 2/5
Just updated the game and every time I go into the game it tells me an update is required. But the game is overall really enjoyable
Since the last time I reviewed the game has not been fun the levels are getting incredibly difficult to manage and the economy can’t kept up I have a bunch of upgrades ready but no gold to use maybe if the gold economy could keep the game would be better
Very nice game
Ruined by Greed 2/5
Could be a fun game but the need to pay to advance even a single level at a time ruins the whole thing. Upgrading your towers to a certain point you'd think would be enough to get you through a handful of new levels but they've designed it so that, at least deeper into the game you literally have to upgrade towers and / or heroes for every single level to advance.
What's worse, the economics of the game or insanely greedy. It costs you $5 to purchase 8,800 gold coins which will not even get you a single tower upgrade once your towers are level 8+. So asking the player to come up with more than $5 to do a single tower upgrade just to have a chance to beat a single level....come on man. Ridiculous.
The only other way to get gold is to wait a day and a half for your knight chest to open for free and half the time there's not any gold inside anyway. If there is gold then usually you won't get more than 6000 gold with any single opening. So again if you're trying to upgrade towers that are anywhere beyond level six you're going to have to wait for three days in order to get enough money to upgrade your towers. Completing quests can help but again, no guarantee of gold.
Too many games like this now and the only way the market will ever change is if players unite in resisting the pay to play / subscription model.
Fix The Gold Shortage! 2/5
They changed the entire upgrading method recently. With the old way I had extra gold and not enough 'resources' to upgrade things. Now I have enough 'points' to upgrade every single level of every tower and every hero several times over and no gold. It is impossibly difficult to come by without spending a lot of cash. The game has reached a point where I can't upgrade towers without gold, but I can't earn any gold without better towers. You can't even grind on older levels to earn anything. I have messaged the developer several times, and they always respond quickly, but it has been to no avail. The old way was a bit more confused, but was much more balanced. Sad, because other than the gold situation it's a five star game all day, but with it unfixed I'd say save yourself the aggravation.
Game Restart 2/5
By Uno Authority
I loved the game until it for some reason wiped all the progress I had reached up to chapter 18 on the last level. Now I am currently at chapter 1 level of 1 😑. How does a game magically restart itself? I didn’t even delete the app or anything.
Enjoying it very much 5/5
By Padlock view
Seriously, nothing bad to talk about here.
Great game 4/5
By Nathan Franklin 9
-1* for the new “short while” that we now need to wait.
could be fun, but very poorly balanced. 2/5
i love tower defense games, but this one seems particularly difficult straight out of the gate and soon becomes unplayably hard without purchasing boosts, or buying currency to purchase said boosts. the gold situation is also impossible - it's bizarrely difficult to collect enough gold to unlock upgrades that you need in order to move forward - and that isn't even the "premium" currency! it's understandable to have to be very careful about gem use, but gold should be much easier to find since it's the most basic currency in the game and required for so many things. PLEASE work on the balance of this game so it can actually be entertaining beyond the first couple of levels! as it is, i'll probably be deleting and looking for something else to fill the tower defense void.
EDIT: part of the gold issue results from being unable to earn extra gold by going back and replaying previous levels. you can replay, but the only way to get gold from it is to get more stars than you got before, which is incredibly limited and beyond frustrating if you already have 3-star victories on everything.
Cash grab 1/5
Too bad, I don’t mind paying for games that are good like this but way imbalanced. Pretty far in but have to delete because towers are not strong enough to continue.....
It was a great game 3/5
I really liked this game before but now I can’t play it anymore
I have more than 1000 card for each towers and hero yet I can’t upgrade cause I don’t have coins! You have to pay more than 25$ to upgrade at least 2 towers or three !
And there’s no way to earn coins by playing levels you are already only by watching an ads for 550 coins so 20 days for 1000 to upgrade that’s funny
I’ll wait for the next update hope they will change the new system
Used to be fun... 2/5
The game itself is fun, but it’s basically impossible to advance to higher levels, due to the gold coins being so rare.
It’s been 2 weeks and I still can’t pass the level I’m on, have only been able to do 2 tower updates that entire time, when 10 are needed.
I’ve got thousands of update cards, but no way to use them. It’s frustrating, and disappointing. At this rate I won’t pass my next level until Spring.
Paid equals more 1/5
By Do u like riddle school?
Paid for easier game play
Great game and mechanics BUT economy is broken 2/5
New update you barley get any gold and if they switched it up like they did we should get gold since we are so far ahead of the game now and missed all the gold in early stages. 100% pay to play now.
November update breaks economy 1/5
The recent update makes earning money and gems at least 10x slower. Less incentive to play.
Also it seems like your in-game ads (or the game itself) are causing the “disappearing dock” issue in iOS 11.
I love this game but I've gotten to chapter 10 and I'm stuck. I have tons of cards for upgrades but no gold to purchase them, I've already spent about $25 buying gems to get me to this point and I'm not going to spend any more at this rate. I agree with everyone else who has stated that the game is awesome but very unbalanced and frustrating to play. I love a challenge but this game is near impossible to progress without spending an absurd amount of money. I'll be waiting on the next update before I play again and if the gold balance isn't better I'll be uninstalling.
Update ruined this game 1/5
The update was pointless. You went from not having enough items to upgrade to now not even close to having enough gold to upgrade. How developers pushed this update out is beyond me. Do they not play their own game? Why would you not create the ability to sell some cards or make gold available after every single battle? How about the option of choosing gold or a card after repeating levels? You know things a 10 year old could think of.
The update 3/5
With the new update I feel like I get less and less gems, reinforcement and boost. All I ever get is card for upgrading but everything takes so much gold that it takes forever to save up. It's just feels a little harder to progress in the game. And dose anyone win the events? They are impossible.
Awesome game 5/5
By Tower defense mania
Incredible game and graphics. The story line and characters are excellent. The only problem I have with it is the inability/hardship of making money. If you don’t get 3 stars every mission, it’s almost impossible to upgrade your towers and characters. I would love to see easier/better/more profit return ways. Other than that, great job outplay.
Latest update changed the loot from chest 1/5
The Lord chest guaranteed a character skin now it doesn’t. Making gems pointless for those who already have max level on heroes and towers. I only need to collect hero skins now and since the chest no longer gives one it is now impossible to collect unless they randomly offer the one I need from the black market, which is rare.
Was Fun 1/5
This game was great and a challenge but as of the update you no longer receive enough coins to progress... another game fallen into in app purchase. It use to allow for a little spending but no needs a LOT.
Too manu Cards not enough GOLD 1/5
The gold payout is way to stingy
Fix it 1/5
Keeps crashing. Fix it
