Was a good game, but latest update ruined it. 2/5
By The Mann Clan
Pros: fun mechanic with an interesting twist. I liked building up to the next level and figuring out the best way to do it.
Cons: way to P2P hungry. Wants real cash for every little thing. Way to battery hungry even in battery saver mode. Started playing around 80%, 20 kind later- 27%. Chalice costs to high on levels- what was nice before the new update was being able to replay the levels at the cost of usually 1 chalice, maybe up to 3 for really difficult levels. Now one replay costs anywhere from 5-7 chalices for replay. Wouldn’t be to bad, but you only have 7 total and it takes almost and hour to refill 1 chalice.
Takeaway: it’s an ok game now, but wouldn’t really recommend unless you have lots of cash to burn. Hopefully they will fix some of these issues with another update.
Hate the new update. 1/5
I was addicted to this game. I even spent real money on gems, but the new update has made it far too expensive to replay old levels. What used to cost one chalice to play now can cost as much as 6 (you can only have up to 7 at a time), so now the only way for me to go back and play old levels is to buy more gems.
Limited gameplay 3/5
The new limitations on levels is outrageous. I loved the unlimited play capabilities before the latest update
THIS UPDATE 👎🏻 1/5
Okay so I have the daily gems and my game won’t save when I close it...it just resets yesterday i didn’t get my gems and all the work I did stopped... and today I play and I can’t get the gems I tap it and they don’t show up... but that’s not the only thing I keep getting the daily chest even if I come on 5 minutes later and my chest I got for levels was gone and I was back to square one... please fix this and could have my gems? Because I have one day left and 2 days now have erased my gems and I did pay for them so I would like them.. also I really do love this game I really do but I would like for this to be fixed also I would like to suggest having the ability to look at all the things I have discovered without having to tap on them! And the ability to turn the music off thanks!
Terrible update 2/5
Newest update stinks the reload time for chalices went from 15 minutes to 1 hour. That along with the cost of levels used to be between 1-3 chalice and now levels cost up to 6 that I’ve seen. That’s one level then have to wait 6 hours to do it over again. I connected cloud and earned 25 gems and then they just disappeared without me using them. The new treasure chest you earn from completing a level as well have just disappeared. I had a bronze, silver, and gold. Unlocked bronze then woke up this morning and they’re all gone. Loved the game before but this newest update has me ready to dump the game.
Update is horrible 1/5
My chests that I win from each level don't save, and disappear when I exit the game. The extra item bonus you can get from merging objects is horrible. I never have enough gems to unlock the bonus, and all it does is take up space in my camp for an hour.
Cute and fun 4/5
I like this game more so than the other dragon games I’ve played.
Since the newest update, the new chests vanish before I can open them, I purchased a 30 gem card and I played several times yesterday (11/21) and collected my gems and now it says the I missed a day which I didn’t. I even spent those gems. Need to fix the new bugs.
It took my gems!!! 3/5
By Kari E
I collected my gems for the day and it then kicked me out and when I went back it they were gone and it said I missed a day.
Fun game until your world is filled with chests 2/5
Fun and very addicting game, but there are these treasure chests that can only be opened by gems. Lots of gems. And you can’t discard them. And soon your world map is covered by these chests and your dragons can’t harvest anything because there’s not enough space and nothing can happen because you don’t have enough gems to open all these chests. And that’s when it’s no longer fun.
Current update killed the game 1/5
Wow. Went from spending hours a day to 20 minutes. It takes literal hours to earn enough chalices to play one level; and can’t get back into a level in progress without re-filling the chalices. Can’t progress the game at all. All of the new updates link to items you have to pay for to get, and the daily chest is a joke! I’m shocked how ruined this game is with this update.
I liked the older version.... 2/5
By Prince Ikster
Some levels use all my chalices now, seriously??? That’s not fair in the slightest, put it back to the one or two chalices for a level. While I can put up with the overpriced gems this is one thing I seriously can’t deal with. Fix it please, when you do I’ll give you the five stars you deserve....
Was good 2/5
Latest update...such a shame. It was fun to play before with the merging, especially to see what you get. Now with the chalices refilling at the pace of a snail and the levels costing way more you can only play one level and then wait HOURS to play another. I was thoroughly enjoying it before, even supported the developer by buying some items. What’s the point now? It’s become quite obvious that you need to pay real money for everything, including opening chests and skipping quests. What a horrible decision. My suggestion is to bring back the old chalice refill rate and per level cost. I can overlook the other things, but not that. Will wait and see but if the current chalice program stays in place I won’t bother with this game any further...
Learning to hate game 1/5
I use to love playing this game. But the update ruined it in app purchase kept disappearing as well as chest you won. The controller won't return your msg. Or fixes the problem with the game. I giving the game a one star because the review won't let me give a zero
My level reward chests disappeared? 1/5
I got the new update, played some levels, got some chest, started to unlocked them, and now they are all gone?
Latest update 1/5
Will this game wasn’t to bad until after this last update. Before you could progress though the land fast now they have changed it up to were it’s going take for ever and/or you have to spend a lot of gems to refill your stamina. I wish I could uninstall this last update.
I loved the game before the update 3/5
I loved how far I was getting in this game. Yes the occasional “buy dragon gems” thing gets annoying. But after the new update I have to wait quite longer for my chalices to fill or the levels amount to play is higher . Letting me (on a good day) beat 3 levels. As opposed to my usual 5-7. This new chest waiting period for every level beat, annoys me because it takes so long for the chests to ‘open’. Also I am levelling up my mushrooms as normal and I need to unlock this bubble thing with gems like never before. I’m upset.
Great until latest update 2/5
Latest update makes me want to erase the game completely. Time for chalices is now absurd, more to even play a level. I’ve been waiting forever for more levels to be added, now I just won’t bother waiting. Ridiculous.
Update needs more tweaking 4/5
By Nina Ky
With this latest update they finally released a daily reward. Problem is when you open your chest and exit the game it resets. So as if you had never opened it. Each level let’s you gain another chest but again as the timer is counting down hours if you close the app it is as if it never happened. No way am I leaving this app open for 16 hours. I am a daily player and really love that they are continuing to improve, but this improvement was a waste of time. Fix it, maybe then it will be helpful.
I got sucked in quickly and can not stop playing, nor do I want to. A simple game but engaging with multiple layers.
Great game is turning into cash-spender 2/5
I love games like this, it’s addictive, colorful. But the more i play, the more updates come out, the more disappointed i become. Game is turning into cash- spender. Last update is terrible - you increased number of chalices needed to pass a level. Before i could play 7 times, now one level costs 2-4 chalices, so 2-3 turns and waiting forever for chalices to refill! New chests can be opened only if you have enough gems. And how in the world can i open at least one, if gems are relics, that only appear once in a while, like one gem-star in 10 plays, or less. Also all those old chests, bonus ones, that i have to trash due to the same reason - lack of gems.
Seriously, when developers start to get greedy, they lose.
This is a game I have really enjoyed, but seriously?
It shouldn’t take up all my chalices to play a single level, and then take an hour for every other chalice. Depending on the levels chosen, I would be able to play two or three levels a day.
And there is no way to get more chalices besides waiting or pay with money (I’m guessing the quest giver might give them, but I can’t find them)
It just lost a huge chunk of what made the game so enjoyable.
What I would have rated it previously- 9/10 what I rate it now 7/10
The latest update makes it insanely difficult to replay levels, and it didn't expand the game as much as it could have. Players are getting angry with companies for inserting too many microtransactions...and you're gonna make the game even more pay-to-play? Why??
Thanks, I️ hate it 2/5
This game was great before it updated. The “optimized” chalice costs are complete bull, and the “bonus” objects you get for merging 3 low-level items a waste of money and space. I don’t even want to play this game anymore because it takes forever to make progress. Good job.
New update 1/5
Every time I get a chest I try to unlock it and I come back 3hrs later and all my chests are gone and I have to keep finding them again 😣
Greedy just got greedier 2/5
I love this game but it was already a case of Wayyy too many things it wants you to spend money (real world cash to spend on in game currency) on. I mean it could literally become a sucking hole of financial doom if you were weak enough not to see the trap. But this new update? Come on! Now I can only play one level and chalices are out? What?? Are you actively trying to make me have nothing to do so I go find other games? Because telling me I can’t play anymore unless I spend cash less than 2 minutes after opening the game is a TERRIBLE IDEA. Also - now the game is super incredibly laggy. I’m so glad I didn’t buy any more gems yesterday like I almost did.
I used to happy..... 1/5
Since the last update, the last 2 levels I played cost 7 chalices each. And the chalices refill at a rate of 1 per hour. Since I work and eat and sleep and have a real life, that means I can only play for a few minutes every 7 hours (once a day pretty much). Never EVER have I seen a game this slow to re-generate energy. Time to move on and find something that I can actually have fun at and progress through at a decent rate.
And it was such a cute and thoughtful game. Really REALLY disappointed....
used to love 1/5
By Abby grace
my best friend and I have been hopelessly addicted to this game for a while now. last week I purchased the gem package where you get 25 gems a day for 30 days. ever since the update, it dosent save the gems I get. i will collect my 25 for the day and come back a few hours later and be told to collect them again. last night I thought it was a glitch but today the gems I collected yesterday were gone. this plus the upping or the time it takes to get chalices and how many are required for levels is going to make me stop playing this game very fast if something isn't changed. please fix this. also I haven't seen the quest giver in camp yet.
why update why 3/5
I loved this game before the update. when levels cost one chalice inside of 4-7 of them. i have to wait forever for my chalices to fill up. and i love the chest idea but when i exit the game i lose my chests and i don't get them in my camp. and whenever i start the game it automatically gives me a daily chest when i already got one. please fix. thank you
Love this Game... 1/5
Its Match Game meets Puzzle Game; I Love both Gendre. I agree with most complaints, especially regarding the Dragon Boxes that cost Gems to open (I played GoW for 4 years, so financially I'm tapped out). I really get lost in this game and hope it stays Challenging and Fun.
Changed to 1*. Im not liking the new updates. Now when you merge items there will be a “Bonus” item in a Bubble, that you now must pay for and you have 1 hour to decide. These Bubble Items take up too much space. AND when You play a level you get the option to skip the quest by paying an amount of diamonds. I chose to skip a quest, paid the diamonds and nothing happened, except losing the Diamonds. I sent a message to customer support and exited the game; when I returned all my diamonds were gone. This Games is getting too expensive to play now that you have to pay to play.
game play over for me 2/5
sooo i actually LOVE this game BUT my camp wont show up and level shroomia 3 does not work so i am unable to move any further once these issues are fixed ill change my rating to 5 star
The latest update ruined it 1/5
Used to be a fun, sweet little game. However, the latest update, with some chests bs, ruined the game for me. I am currently maxed out on the levels, was hoping this update would include more levels to continue progress, but no. Now it costs too many chalices to replay levels, up to 6 of the 7 allotted, and the new collect chests, pay purple things to use them early crap is just crap.
Oh well, the dragons were cute enough, but I just don’t think continually playing is worth it anymore.
Can't play much 2/5
Been playing for a while but now it takes an hour to get one dragon chalice and you need at least 4 to play once so you can't really play much at all unless you want to purchase!
New update NOT a plus at this time... 2/5
I used to play this daily, for easily an hour at a time...
NO customer support, this new update is a bummer!
Beware! The new update needs updating! Instead of 10 minutes for a new chalice, it is now 60 minutes, some levels don’t complete even once you have completed every task and when you exit, you lose the level earnings and the chalices are wasted.
And, the “extra” items come in a bubble that cost anywhere from 12-23 gems to open. Just sell them right away and get some coins out of it.
I really enjoy this game but ever since the update my game keeps resetting what I do that day it causes me to miss gems from daily basket and my progress for that day which is discouraging me from playing further.
Addicting game 5/5
Very much fun to play
Love this game! Until the latest update 3/5
This is a game I play to pass the time, and I love the addition of extra daily chests. Unfortunately the new chests you get from completing a level are either glitching, or there was poor planning. I win the chests, set them to unlock, then close the app. When I open the app, those chests are gone, BUT the daily chest for some reason resets (I end up with multiple a day instead of one because of this glitch). Please fix this!
No longer fun 1/5
I downloaded this game a little while ago. And LOVED it but this new update is horrible. I used to play it forever because you always had something to do. And now that they made chalices impossible to get you just wait forever and can’t do anything.... not fun at all. They’re all about the money trying to make you spend real money omg chalices. It was amazing but the new update has me really disappointed.
Horrible update 1/5
New update ruined this game takes 40 minutes to get one life back. Levels use 3-4 lives. You only have 7 lives. Can’t enjoy at all.
Used to be fun. 1/5
This game used to be awesome. I could play for a while and not get bored. Now it takes an hour to get one chalice to play new levels, the dragons at the base don’t last as long, and levels cost more to play. A once fun game turned into a con to make you spend way more gems so you would be more willing to pay for more with real money.
Big update, huge problems 1/5
The new update brings some major balance adjustments that completely ruin the pacing of the game. Number of chalices (energy) needed for each level have been increased significantly (avg 1/level to 3-7 now) which is made even worse by chalice regeneration time time increasing from 15 minutes to an hour! That's a little less than 2hrs to completely recharge but it's inflated to 7 hours now! Some levels take up to 7 chalices after the update, so this severely restricts the amount of playtime you get without having to spend a lot of $ to speed it up.
I buy the item that gives you 25 gems/day every month, but I won't be continuing (or playing this game) until they revert back to a more player-friendly balance.
Fun for about 10 minutes 1/5
This is a little bit of fun. For about the first 10 minutes. Then it's tediousness becomes overwhelming.
One of my most played games 3/5
Pros: The game is addictive and fun and you can play without having to pay. Levels that you can play over and over again and earn different prizes each time. The levels also get increasingly challenging so you have to use your problem solving skills.
Occasional online limited time events which are sooo much fun!
There is also a daily chest collection option and the ability to earn special chests as you complete levels. (Both of these are new)
I had to pay $7 to open up a special area of land, the results were satisfactory (lots of dragon gems and a variety of eggs you couldn’t get otherwise) so I figured I’d spend more money to buy dragon gems to open the chests that I had been collecting. The prizes? Crap. Utter crap. Not one single chest gave me things I couldn’t get for free. If you can buy it with supplies you mine, gold coins or through prizes earned from completing levels, then these items should NOT be in overpriced chests. Try putting the eggs you can’t simply buy with gold coins in the higher level (more expensive) chests. Because trust me there are plenty.
The newest features. Every time I collect the daily chest and additional timed chests from completing levels, they disappear and reset so I can only get the prizes if I stay logged into the game for the 3, 6, 8, 12, 24 hours it takes for the chests to unlock and the daily chests to move to the next one. Trust me when I say that is not realistic.
An Amazing Game With One Huge Flaw 4/5
I love this game. The graphics are excellent, the gameplay and soothing, and I adore watching my little camp grow into something better. I have one major complaint about this game, and it concerns gems and the sheer number of dragon chests found in game. I simply cannot afford to open them, so they sit there in my camp taking up valuable space. I do not want to feel forced to spend money on gems to open these chests. I would much rather prefer having a way to get “free gems”, i.e., with the incorporation of watching ads to collect a few extra gems each day. Add this, and I think the number of satisfied players will jump.
Fix the chalices back please!! 1/5
Really 7 chalices to continue a level? Please don’t start being that kind of game. Fix it and I would be happy to up the stars.
Not making any more IAPs 3/5
11/21: Still no cloud save but now there’s no progress-saving either! Since last night it all keeps reverting. Not ok. Totally broken everything.
Edit on 10/26/17: since the latest update around 5 days ago cloud save hadn't worked & that makes me nervous ...
I'm peeved. I spent several dollars and bought a bunch of gems, opened up a 60 gem box and it had items that could've been gotten free in it. Did the same today with the remaining 45 or so that I had & it happened again. Absolutely uncool. Green or grass eggs?! Seriously?? No. Wallet: closed.
You’ve ruined a good thing. 1/5
This game is WONDERFUL. I’ve spent hours just enjoying it. I even bought one thing, which is something I hate to do for games. But with this update, it takes all day to earn the chalices back. I cap out at 7 of them. I’m to the point where it takes 7 chalices to play a level. To refill chalices early (an hour a chalice!) you want 35 gems. You charge $5 for a 100 gems. This is just ridiculous and sad. Your game is worth something. It’s a GOOD game. Why ruin it by forcing your players to pay over and over? Just give the option of buying the game and be done with it. It’s just so disappointing.
What was with the latest update??? 3/5
Love this game, to start with. It’s lots of fun and once I started selling off the chests I became much less stressed. The events are lots of fun if a bit repetitive.
But with this new update, levels that used to cost 1-3 chalices to replay now cost 5-7! You only get 7 chalices to start with, and they take 40 minutes to reload. Used to not be a problem for me, but now you can only replay 1 level every 6 hours instead of 4-7 levels. Not a good way to keep your customers in the game...everyone doesn’t have loads of money to spend on extra turns. The added (pay to play) features are really nice and tempting. People might actually purchase gems to access those new features. But most people aren’t going to START paying for something that used to be free. I am seriously considering dumping this game which is very sad for me.
Missing gems package 2/5
Purchased the 3.99$ gem pkg yesterday then app updated an poof my gems are gone! Really enjoy this game but if my gems aren’t returned I will delete this app !
Disappointed by the changes 1/5
This used to be my most favorite time waster but the changes have taken the micro-transactions from a subtle part of the game to an ‘in your face’ obnoxiousness. You can now quite literally ‘pay to win’ with options to skip quests with money.
The chalice regeneration rate has been slowed to a point where you can’t actually play more than a level a day unless you pay. Time to find a new game. Sad and disappointing.
This new update is awful. 1/5
I used to love this game but levels take too many chalices which now take way too long to refresh. The worst part though is that the game stopped saving my progress. I earned a golden chest which after unlocking it told me it would take 24 hours to open. When I went back into the game about 8 hours later it was gone. This game is a mess.
Addicting But Needs Improvement 2/5
It's a fun game, but there are glaring issues that distract from it being great. Mainly, the cost of items is on the high side. As well, the drop rates are nice at first, then become all about making you spend money. Latest patch only made things more expensive. They give you so many premium currency chests without ways to really gain that currency after the first portion of the game so your camp is full of stuff you have to sell for nothing or pay handsomely for in real world money. $6.99 for a starter island... Well you can see where it's going. If you want to get people spending money in the game so they continue to spend, you need some low-price high value feeders.
Edit: Also, now the $6.99 island at least shows what you get, but it also says it's -58% off? Uhmm, you can't just say something is on sale when it was never higher to begin with, there are laws against that. I know they could say it costs 58% less than if you bought gems and got that stuff, but given that it's a unique area it's not comparable to other items/prices and the way it's displayed is not indicative of that. As it stands, it's pretty badly designed and potentially illegal in some localtiies.
Edit: an update, bringing more free stuff! Except no... just more ways to spend gems. Everything free is locked by gems. Coincidence that even less gem stars seem to fall? Should rename it from Gram games to Grab games as in money grab.
