First I want to say very good game for a sim. But this game has a bug that needs to fixed. The work shops some times doesn’t respond to continue producing items. This has happen several times. Please fix. I tried restarting game and i cleared history. That didn’t work.
Wasted Money and Time 1/5
Veteran player to a newcomer: don’t waste your time or money. 5 years and $5k invested turned into a very bad decision and experience. Developers stay hidden and never acknowledge suggestions. The differences between the web version and mobile version are staggering. Quest lines in events are extremely difficult for veteran players and just a joke. If you have Parkinson’s as I do, this game does not have any good ways of accommodating players with disabilities. Support says otherwise but never offers tips on better ideas or functions. I’ve suggested several ideas in the 5 years I played and researched several other players suggesting the same ideas 5 years ago and nothing was done. Inno is now lamo
Great game but not compatible with newer iPhones(X and 11) 4/5
I love the game. I’ve been playing for years. However, I recently upgraded from an iPhone 6s to an iPhone 11. The dip at the top of my screen for the speaker and camera cuts off important parts of the game. Either the announcements or the messages buttons get cut off(depending how my phone is flipped). While this is manageable, it’s annoying having to flip my phone to access features. Another thing that isn’t ideal is that I cannot switch between my different worlds on the app. I can only stay on one. On the online web version, I can have multiple world. Other than these two things, I enjoy the game quite a bit.
A need for a search bar 4/5
It’s really fun to play, but there is one problem. For the fellowship, and the invite members search is horrible they both need a search bar.
Absolutely love 5/5
Anything with Elves gets my immediate attention
Rip off or system bug? 3/5
I’ve been playing for about an hour, and so far it’s pretty relaxing and fun. However, I just spent the last of my knowledge points to research an area expansion, and then my last 200 supplies to ‘activate’ it. But when I went to select the expansion spot, I was told I still needed to finish exploring a province to earn the expansion. Effectively wasting my knowledge points and supplies. The feeling of being ripped off has kinda killed the mood for me. Might try to play later, might not.
Trying to buy 1/5
Trying to buy spent $19.98 for Rubys and it exit me out of the app I won’t back in it says failed to process if you want to retry mash OK
So I did it again charge me 39. And some change did I give me no regrets whatsoever
Can I communicate with these people about the problem and overcharging me
My bank disputed it and the bank told me they declined it because I didn’t say nothing to him about it which was a lie I’ll text them on the app no response iTunes do not care about the customer so
Be aware of items and how they treat people then I get no satisfaction tried talking with him but the number they gave me was a recording and you could not talk to him
Great game 5/5
By Art grrlie
Visually appealing, fun.
Really fun game. Once a day checker.
Almost complete 5/5
App works great BUT. . .
Lacks support for important fellowship features. No knowledge point donations to Ancient Wonders is a real impediment. In other areas the app exceeds features of browser! PLEASE InnoGames, implememt all basic features in the phone app!
Boring junk 1/5
No basis to the game, limited play ability without paying (over & over again) what seems to have been someone’s cute idea was not thought out.
You want to give away your time & money, donate or volunteer for a charity.
Complicated, but Fun! 5/5
It’s a little hard to figure out how to “research” without spending a lot of real money to buy diamonds, but I think I’ve got it figured out. And the game won’t let me create a Login password, so I can’t ask questions in the Wiki, because you have to use your player name and password to join the Wiki. I’ve tried to look for how to create a password but can’t locate it anywhere and can’t join the Wiki to ask. Also, I keep getting notifications about a tournament (or whatever they call it) but when I click to join it, nothing happens. So I don’t know how to gain the benefits of that feature. Other than the confusing parts, game play is fun.
Edit: download arrives 3/5
By Code Name Yellow
I've spent many Months playing this game and for some reason (this isn't the first time) I'm again, STUCK OUTSIDE where I can't open the game without an update, yet NO UPDATE EXISTS on the App Store.
For those of us very dedicated to the game, in a fellowship, and losing important game time with delays during IMPORTANT EVENTS where we alredy can't properly support our pc players due to a design FLAW,.. well this is totally UNACCEPTABLE and utterly ridiculous. We ALREDY miss out on SO much of the real game as App players, it's nearly Punishment to continue to play.
Until Inno CARES enough to bring the the APP version up to even CLOSE to an equal footing of the pc gamers, that enjoy many perks in fellowship that we Never receive, I'm DELETING this game.
Im WILLING to lose what I've built because I'm completely disgusted that the incredibly talented designers are working and yet be put to task to micromanage and infuriate the App players as fodder for the money machine.
When you design a game takes YEARS to work thru, as a player, maybe a little more attention should be PAID to the potential CUSTOMERS you want to entice Funding from. Thanks but no thanks no longer. I quit.
I have the most recent version, did the update 4 days ago (including the two I'm now unable to load game with.) it worked, then it didn't, and I've done nothing besides play. So whatever changed, it wasn't anything I've done. But thank you for the reply, I appreciate the effort if nothing else.
The download finally arrives and I've lost over 2 days of gameplay in the fellowship adventure I can't get back. This isn't the first time its happened and the aggravation involved removes all desire to spend real money here. However on behalf of myself and other app players Id thank the Devs for the fix.
Patience required 5/5
If you are like me, a free player, it is a good game if you are patient. I pair it with Klondike, and switch back and forth.
Very slow leveling but pretty 3/5
I downloaded three civilization building games several months ago. Elvenar is my least favorite and here is why: the game requires a ton of patience or real $ to get anywhere. I did spend a lot of $ and still am unsatisfied. It’s not that consumers won’t spend, we just want to see results after spending. This game requires $ to build, to fight, to win chests (and often, the prizes are not worth it). I always feel like I never quite achieved something good when I log out. In comparison, “Forge of Empires” and “Puzzle and Empires” both reward me for time spent and money spent. I am proud of what I have built in those games...and the strength I have to do things inside those games is rewarding. Elvenar keeps me feeling like I can just never quite get there. After way too much money. I’m capping this game and moving on.
Constantly crashes using 2017 IPad. 1/5
I have more than 21 g of free space. I have all the most recent updates for the game and my device. I close all other apps before trying to start in this game. My wifi is excellent. It crashes immediately and then sporadically if I continue and try to wait it out. I also play on my desktop and never experience problems. I wish the developers could fix this because I would like to be able to play when I am away from home. My rating is for the app and not for the game.
Is this game broken? 2/5
This game is very fun and full of surprises! Don’t spend too much money! 😊
Nice little game 4/5
This is a nice building game for those that like to pop in and out with no fear f being attacked or otherwise losing what you built while away. No pressure at all. I've been playing this "game" about three years now.
Some of the chapters are tedious and hard to get through (orcs!)
Continual crashes on older iPads 1/5
This game is not playable on any iPad two years or older. The game continually crashes and on higher levels the crashes are constant. The simple fact is that the game REQUIRES newer processors. Tech support refuses to acknowledge that this is the case. I have two different older iPads and this is the case on both of them. Conversations with other players with older Apple products have indicated that this is an ongoing issue. I cannot do quests anymore because when entering the World Map to fulfill quest requirements, the game immediately crashes without fail. I have updated the game and my OS and this has not solved the problem. Bottom line...take a pass and play something more stable. All of my other games work fine.
Edit: l want to re-emphisize that tech support WILL NOT acknowledge that this game will not work on older Apple products. The solution offered does not work. I have restarted my iPad and the game still constantly crashes. I have +5 GB free space too. However, the saving grace is that l can access my game through a computer. As it stands, my rating stays the same as it relates to Apple mobile devices.
Too much pay to play 3/5
There is a lot of required purchases if you really want to advance in the game
Just pass 1/5
This game is really bad, plz don’t waste your time
Poor customer service 3/5
I made a purchase and because of a game glitch, was shorted on my purchase. Upon contacting support, I was informed that it needed to be looked at by the main office to find out what happened and to ensure that it wouldn’t happen to another player. Ok. I understand that. I can even see the very good business sense in that. IT’S BEEN 10 DAYS!!!! I STILL HAVEN’T BEEN COMPENSATED WHAT I’M OWED. In fact customer service has taken the route of ignoring my emails. So much for good business sense.
Thank you for contacting the Elvenar support team.
We will send your ticket to our Community Management team, which will review your case and get in touch with you shortly.
We would appreciate your patience in the meantime. Have a great day!
Thank you for contacting support and we do apologize for the delay.
Unfortunately in this case we will need our main office to look and verify what may have occurred because we do show that they were received and added to the building but that it didn't complete. Unfortunately we do need to know why this happened to prevent it from occurring again in the future.
Thank you for your patience and I do apologize again.
Update.... I finally received compensation for the glitch. A month later. While I was given everything owed, it was rather disappointing it took a month.
Great till logging out 3/5
I loved the game, and played it a lot, but for about a month I did not log on. When I opened the app again it asked me to pick my race, even though I’d already built a sizable city as elves! The app has reset my city and after putting all that time into it already, starting again doesn’t feel worth it. This is also not the first time this has happened to me, but on a different device and player. I’m not going to continue playing because like I said, it just doesn’t feel worth it if I’m risking getting my entire world reset like this.
Customer service is lacking 1/5
Customer service is very poor.
If you get into a situation with your password don’t expect any help
Game is stuck and can’t play 3/5
By Luther Lightfoot
Been playing this game for about a week and now it’s stuck. When I login the screen is dark and I cannot interact with anything. I cannot complete work or scroll around my city. I have restarted my device three times, each after closing the app.
Game is frozen 1/5
By Bp rgiii
Game is totally frozen after 3 days.
A Glorified version of Simon Says
Every event is the same. Farm beverages, farm simple tools, farm this that takes NINE hours. Always issues with population. There is potential but it’s just so repetitive....
Elvenar is good, but not fun long term. 1/5
The game looks great. From its graphics to programming. There’s a lot of fun to be had if you have friends too. The bad part is they purposely don’t tell you much about how to play efficiently. The rewards and/or items produced are very niggardly. They, as a business, always want you to buy blue crystals, but they give you so little of everything that you have to spend money at some point or it quickly becomes a “hurry up and wait” game. There are of course better options for this genre that are also free to play, but not pay to win. There is also better help teams elsewhere too that don’t try to delete your game through loopholes. Stay away from this one. They simply don’t respect you, and you don’t respect your time or money if you get this game. If you have free time and money to spend then get it. If you’re a relatively intelligent person that values time, progression, and money, just stay away. They are also very passive aggressive (their help team), and won’t hesitate to do nothing for us. Keep checking in to see if they change, but now or in the near future doesn’t look good.
Fun Game 5/5
By USAF 341SMW OMMS
This is about my fourth time trying this game. I would try to play it and instead of letting the game “take shape”, I kept giving up! As I looked at the the game this time, I took my time. It is starting to generate “funds” for making my village larger and more prosperous! Don’t expect things to happen overnight! Take your time and enjoy yourself! Most of all, relax and let the game play out! And, hopefully, like me you will see how much fun it really is!!
Great game, love getting to know other players 4/5
The basic foundation of this game is fantastic and the graphics are outstanding. There is a real sense of community among the players. As with real life there are always personality conflicts but easily controlled in-game by building a close-knit fellowship of other like-minded players. Loads of fun. The only negatives I have is that the developers sometimes seem very out of touch with the players and often develop non-important parts of the game while ignoring or drag their feet on the most needed updates. Certain key parts of the mobile application have never been developed at all, which leaves mobile players disconnected from important aspects of the game. I wish the developers we’re more in touch with the needs of the players but other than that the game is fantastic and I have been playing for three years.
Playable but buggy 3/5
I actually quite like this game: the music is spectacular, the resource management is nice-if not a little slow paced, but it’s a game you can leave on its own for a while and come back to later. It is pretty buggy though. The quests have stopped updating for me (stuck on “get trader” even though I have one) and some of the workshops I’ve put in are bugged out (won’t let me produce anything because it won’t even pull up the options) and it won’t even let me get rid of the bugged workshops so they sit and take up precious space. If the wrinkles were to be ironed out it would be a great peaceful game.
Love it 4/5
Love this game, however I wish there was a little more direction on how to complete quests or at least where to go. Having trouble with that but otherwise a very fun and addicting game!!
This game is so stingy with everything it takes forever to advance unless a lot of real money is spent. Don’t waste your time effort or anything on this ridiculously stingy game.
Awesome Game 5/5
By Mrs. Kitty1118
I enjoy this game so much. I’m new but I’ve been addicted from the start. There is so much to this game but it’s worth the grind. I do wish (as a mobile player) that you get the bonuses for visiting a fellows city.
This game looked so good but once I started it was mad glitchy. Half my buildings kept going grey with a 🚫 over them and when i first started I had a giant elf lady blocking the whole time. That fixed itself but the buildings didn’t. Ive deleted hopefully those aren’t an issue for everyone.
Where is customer support?? 4/5
I’ve been playing for several months and you get somewhat addicted. The problem is my main city screen has gone black.
All perimeter icons are full color and on the screen. All the other screens are in full operation.
The “contact them” site is non responsive and when I go back to check for updates it shows problem resolved!! NOT!
I have diamonds I have paid for just sitting there and can’t play the game. I’ve invested a fair amount of money and now I guess it’s a write off.
Their ability to give directions on self help is so vague it is of no help at all.
Update.... was eventually contacted and advised to delete and reinstall...instead I cleared out quite a few downloaded games, etc., restarted my iPad and got it back to working.
The problem with the game ...or possibly me...is it is quite difficult to understand what you have to do to move ahead in the game. Eventually...in frustration you buy the diamonds when you are stuck, in order to move ahead, which can get expensive and out of hand. A few days later I decided to Kill the game all together, as I had spent nearly $100.00 in less than 2 months and that was while trying to be frugal. I was contacted this morning and asked if I wanted to update my review...so I did.
This is just my take, I’m sure there are others still enjoying the game.
Worst game ever 1/5
By there now shut up
Worst game ever it’s a pay to win game don’t play it ever
Gotta spend the bucks 1/5
I don’t know where these great ratings come from. After the first couple hours, I couldn’t do anything without diamonds and of course, they aren’t free. At least with most pay to win games, you can do something.
By Ryan Icecess
Don’t pay for diamonds because they don’t pay their help 1/5
By Call Me MacPhisto
Volunteer tech support. Classy.
Fun game play, if a bit too tedious, but incompetent tech support. Absolute joke.
Love this game but one suggestion (: 4/5
I love this game, definitely addicted to it. My only suggestion is that when you expand your territory I think you should be able to clear off your land and rebuild your city. It’s hard to continually delete roads and smoosh everything together to fit in a building that you have room. Or maybe a feature to store your buildings? Something would be better and make it easier.
By awwwsome games
So this game is awesome but how do i stop the some 200 residents of mine to stop working so they can be available so i can buy more buildings
Takes Forever To Advance 4/5
By Leonardo L.L.
Good game, gets repetitive over time. My only knock is that it takes years to build up to big cities. In the App Store, every image it shows is a full completed city with several upgrades included. I am an old school player and refuse to pay to play for a game in the App Store. Like I said, a decent game but requires a lot of your time to progress.
Great game but one small thing..Devs? 5/5
Love this game!! ^-^
Devs, Is there no way on iPad and iPhone to log into your google account? I only have fb and username as a option.. while on the browser version there’s also a gmail log in option.. would be nice if mobile could have that option too so I can play on my devices and browser cross in sync.
App keeps crashing 1/5
Every time I try to play the game on my iPad mini, the app crashes within a minute or so. Don’t know why. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling but didn’t help. Game is fun, but I’d like to play on a larger screen than just my phone every once in awhile...
Getting better all the time 5/5
By Stanton Family
There are still a handful of features I want but the developers keep making steady progress. Keep at it guys and gals!
