Great Game 5/5
By the bob ...........
This game is great in a lot of ways if you watch a few YouTube videos and are willing to spend 10 bucks every several months. The only frustrating thing about this game is if you slack a bit for an event every one in arena will be more powerful then you and the events cause inactive players to play for about 2 weeks so clan wars are slightly harder. I see a lot of people hating. If you aren’t in a good spot in the game grind for a bit or undownload the game you don’t need to leave a bad review.
Misleading ads 1/5
By Not that Andy
I saw an ad online that made this game look interesting and clicked through. It's not even remotely the same game as advertised. To the devs: it doesn't matter how good your game is, if you tell me it's something else and don't deliver what you promise, it's garbage.
Don’t waste your time and money 2/5
By DJ Russty
Hey battle lovers! This game is designed for grinders and money spenders. Go into this game knowing the gaming mechanics are stacked against you both in the area and in the gem bay. You will face off against opponents 10x more powerful than you on the regular, and opponents which, on paper, you should beat, will knock out your guys. If your ready to be frustrated, download this game. When you do, don’t upgrade anything until you ABSOLUTELY have to, work on your guys, their armor and gemstones. Stay small to win points to buy relics in the area. You won’t win at higher levels without them. Good luck!
Wish I never started to play it 1/5
This game started out being fun. But then it quickly became apparent that it’s designed to slowly draw out your money. They stage all of your available opponents so that your fighters and gear is never good enough. You’ll start to level everything to a point where you think you’ll be competitive and then BOOM, all you opponents all of a sudden jump up to levels you can’t beat. You’re always behind needing to buy gear.
Game not opening? 4/5
This game is unique in its own way, there are many different tactics that make this game fun as well. One major problem that i have is that sometimes, once maybe every week, the game does not load. no matter if u restart my phone, it will not load. I have to delete the game and re download for it to start again. Im not sure if im the only one getting this problem, but it is very frustrating as i cannot continue doing this every week or so.
Fast start-awful finish 1/5
By muffin man mania
At first it’s a lot of fun because they give you premium access and take away the pay 2 win aspect, then they make you hit a wall and take away premium which makes you buy everything and anything, you wait for days for anything to build or trainers to train and nothing happens in between, watch ads and open your wallet are pretty much all that happens after the first few days
Love the game hate the ads 1/5
It’s getting ridiculous how many ads and how long they are getting. Half the time you spend in game is watching ads. Even with paying for gems! Enough already! Seems like ads used to be like 10-15 seconds now they’ve doubled the time on some like 30-45 seconds. Literally half the time playing it watching ads! Would be 5 star game if not for that reason! Reduce ads and will increase rating.
One of the best gams I have ever played 5/5
One of the best games I’ve ever played probably the best game I’ve ever played that’s an app I love progressing in the game because it makes me seem like I’ve progressed so far and I love competing in the game against other players that’s probably my favorite part even though some players may beat me because they bought a lot of things I still love this game for what it is.
Ad issue 1/5
By Mixed mocha
I love this game but I’m not getting credit for watching ads and the game shuts off completely after the ad.... I wasn’t sure where to report the issue, so I am doing it here hoping it will be updated soon. I just downloaded the newest version of the app and it started doing this.
Everything costs money 3/5
If you want to do anything meaningful you will eed to spend money. Has some very irritating quirks like once you get to a certain level you are outclassed by two and three times in the arena and can never win. Same thing when you are trying to attack enemies to get enough money to upgrade. You get way outclassed. Creates the typical bottleneck to get you to spend money. Game has potential but has serious issues that need to be addressed.
Free accounts have been penalized . 3/5
Was not happy about this past upgrade. There is no mention of this in the version updates. The amount of spells was reduced from 18 to 9 for free accounts premium accounts get more spells. The amount of tickets and rewards were significantly reduced for free accounts vs premium accounts. There are probably more reductions.
Adds but no rewards??? 2/5
By Mahi Mahi fish
About seven times now I’ve watched adds and got no rewards don’t know why but really annoying hope they fix it
Completely reliant on the credit card 1/5
The game is fun while your dumpling cash into it. Once you stop there is nothing even close to a satisfying rate of progression. The incredibly large scale of the game from start to end game power levels is ridiculous, when you look at all you have to do and the fact that only the dollar will ensure lack of loss. The shear amount of earning it takes to get anywhere and the possibility of chance that failure could set you back is ridiculous.
From loot chest to weather or not a gem will merge. Only the dollar will bring assurance.
Yes there are many was to earn, but the minuscule amounts you earn get you little to no where.
Support is moderate at best, they really don’t care about the issues unless they are dollar related. They give as little as they can to make up for a problem that may occur.
Capitalism at it’s finest! 3/5
Well you just killed the game for so so many people with this latest “upgrade” tr 11? Just couldn’t leave well enough alone could you...
Upgrade is a degrade 2/5
Ever since I updated the app (mandatory to play,) the game crashes whenever I watch any videos... for anything, on either one of my devices that I play on. Please update the update so I can once again play the game I enjoy. Thank you!
Needs work 3/5
After every monthly update there's new adds that will either crash the game or freeze my new IPad. I have written to tech and the response is always the same...delete game and reload. I enjoy the game and spend $10 to gamble fortune chance to get better equipment at every seasonal event. I just wish they would review adds for compatibility with Apple devices.
Watching ads 5/5
The new update are awesome I have been talking to my friends about the same changes you just made. One thing about this new update I do not like, is making the application to restart once I finish watching an ad. The dynamic of the game is awesome and the ads helps to continue moving forward but I don’t like the game to restart over and over for no reason. I do not know if I am the only one having this issue. Can you look into that please.
It gets worse 1/5
If you ever saw the Pixar movie ‘Inside Out’ you know that happy memories can be converted to sad.
This game starts fun, there are cool things to do and your toons het more skilled and better equipment.
THEN everything slows down..... I come back after a couple of days not playing and the toons still have finished their training, that room I started days ago still isn’t finished. It just turns your happy memories into sad.
It’s a great game! If only children grew up faster, though
I want you to know,I have started today,and I already feel like ruling a castle!This game is great!There is no problem at all.If you got this message,please read,and thank you.Plus,I know that this was short.But no hard feelings,right?
Won’t finish downloading when opened 1/5
Game stuck at opening splash screen, and eventually error message pops up saying to check my internet connection. My connection is fine. Uninstalled and reinstalled several times.
They only want money!! 1/5
I have had this app for a while now and the times I’ve had problems, the developers acted very uninterested in fixing them. I spent $10 on in-app purchases because I enjoyed it so much at first and apparently once they find out you will spend money, they make it almost impossible to move on in the game without doing so. I have set up another game on a different device to see if this is actually the case and that game has moved forward faster and further than the one I spent money on. My castle is constantly up for attack so I can’t save any resources to upgrade it without purchasing diamonds. On the other device, it’s only vulnerable once in a great while.
Also, the algorithm used for the tournaments is severely flawed. I have not been able to even place in a tournament in a long time. They fail to address the problem and continue to state that it is working just fine. Once again, on the other device, I have placed first in quite a few tournaments. I wish they would make an honest game where you weren’t forced to make a purchase after finding out you WILL spend money. Shame, I would’ve considered this one of the beat games on the market if they didn’t act like crooks.
Amazing but also annoying 3/5
By nicknames good yes
I love this game and have been playing it for a while but I feel that they should add a range of people to battle so that the game allows grouth because sometimes you get a higher level and go to arena just to discover everyone is a higher level than you by 500,000 also when I rank up the enemy's get harder, now in normal terms thats fine but it gets to the point where i cant do anything except wait for better gear, if they could make it more reasonable i feel it would be alot funner
Plus no choice in similar level types
This game is fun 5/5
By mylo the down low
It is fun and adventure I got addicted to this game I’ve been playing this game for over 2 years
A fun time filler 5/5
So far I really like the game. It’s easy but keeps interesting.
If you want to spend a bunch of money then this is the game for you. That’s the only way to win. Even then you have to spend hundreds of dollars to even come close to winning the battles. Very lazy design. Save yourself some money and don’t play. You’d just be giving some nerdy game designer your hard working money. Please don’t do it. Save and go buy something that’s going to give you happiness. Like food or a gym membership. His name is “HUSTLE” castle. They are hustling you, you can’t win this game. I’m a level 30 and I’m disgusted with myself for playing this much. I feel very upset with myself for spending money and getting HUSTLED. All so some nerdy, probably fat game designer can have my money. Please do not play this game.
The best strategic game out there 5/5
I downloaded hustle castle about 5 months ago and have been playing it ever since. As of right now my squad power is about 1.3 million and I still find myself playing hours at a time. The dynamics of this game are not like any other. At the beginning of your hustle castle journey the upgrades are quick and it’s almost impossible to run into a complete stop. The further you progress into the game the more game modes you unlock, opening many different avenues to upgrade your castle and squad. As you unlock the different game modes including Clan Wars, Tournaments, Gem bay, The Portal, and last but not least The Dungeon; the game becomes more exciting and less redundant to play. Another plus side is that every one of these game modes are playable with your Facebook friends except The Portal. Meaning you can go on a journey to Gem Bay or take a trip to The Dungeon with your friend and their squad. This game may have a couple bad reviews complaining about the pay to win feature but that never interferes with you having an enjoyable time while playing. Every aspect of the game is skill based and you are put with players that match your skill level. The game is updated weekly and the owners put a lot of work into making sure this game stays up to date and fun to play. Needless to say, I love this game and every friend I have showed is also addicted. Definitely worth a download!
Horrible, Con Artists who refuse to honor payment 1/5
I’d give it zero stars if I could.
I paid for the Goblin Assistant to be on my account, and during a promotion it was removed and the developers refused to honor it, even AFTER I provided them with proof as my receipt said “Goblin Assistant” with no time frame specified. On that same receipt it showed another purchase that had specific information about that purchase.
The game itself is interesting for about 5 minutes, but gets boring really quick. Save yourself the headache of dealing with this game and find something else to play.
Good game 5/5
Just love the game
Poor customer service 1/5
They don’t seem to have control over their own game. Never heard of anyone being helped positively by their staff.
Clever and Fun 5/5
A light, casual game for people that like a combination of comedy and strategy.
Great Form of Escape 4/5
Only four stars because of the lack of instruction in the app. Googling tips and definitions helps a LOT. Also wish there was a dashboard to see all castle dwellers at once. Would like to see the backpack contents sorted by occupation and have an option to unequip a dweller of everything at once as well as item by item. There also does not seem an awful lot of interest in team play and tournaments. The rewards should be uniform in order to make it worthwhile. Why participate in a tournament if you can’t se the rewards to build your castle or outfit your players? Because they want you to spend money on worthless in app purchases.
Has lots of potential, but... 2/5
When I first started playing this game I would give it 5 stars. Which by the way is when they ask you to rate the game. Which is probably why this has so many good reviews. As I played more, my rating slowing dwindled because I realized how much time and money and I’m talking hundreds upon hundreds of dollars, it takes to get anywhere in this game. When gearing your warriors, the game is broken when trying to get legendary items. The only efficient way of getting them is by participating in this broken system they have called Arena. For everything other than than arena. This game utilizes a “squad” power which basically tells you how strong your team is. Everything from what I can see is based around it EXCEPT for the arena. its based on the average level of of your squad 0-100. So what happens is I get paired with teams who have 3 to 4 times my squad power who are the same lvl as I am, they hit me three times and I’m dead. Not fun at all and it’s a complete waste of time. If they based it around squad power instead, I would at least have a chance. The devs know this has been an issue since the inception of it but they refuse to do anything about it. They say they are working ok fixing it but don’t. If that’s the case give us alternative methods of obtaining legendary items efficiently and not force me to spend ridiculous amounts of money to obtain them. 2 stars for this game.
False advertising 1/5
If you are thinking of downloading this game based on the ads showing a logic puzzle game, don’t — the game is nothing like the ad.
Terrible customer support 1/5
By Todds castle
Has become a pay to play game once you reach upper levels. I paid for a large diamond package in one of the events , got charged and never received the diamonds. Customer support said the purchase cleared the apple store. But days later still no diamonds and the event is over.
Buyer and player beware
I love it. But Can you please tell me how to make space in storage so i can open my chests????
This game is so fun and I can’t stop playing it
Hustle castle 1/5
It use to be a pretty good game but now it’s more and more pay to win. If you like to spend a lot of money on an app game , then you will love this game.
Been playing this game for a long time. Finally spent a 10$ on a ticket for rewards to get loot during the special event....the ticket works once on each special event giving cool items. Then pooooooooooooo after that. Save your money. Game is cool but wasted 10 dollars thanks hustle castle will never spend money after and not recommended to others.
Balance Issues 2/5
This game is another example of one which requires anyone who wants to succeed to spend a lot of money. The main cause seems to be the imbalance in player battle match-ups. I am currently at about 450K of total power and the game is matching me up with competitors with around 1.5 million. There’s no way I can continue to expand my castle and improve my overall player strength when these high-value competitors are raiding my coffers repeatedly each day. I just can’t make progress without spending lots of cash. I don’t mind investing a little money from time to time, but it’s pretty clear I’m not the type of player the designers of this game are interested in. Hustle Castle is going to be relegated to my “old games” folder soon. It’s just not worth it.
Hustle castle 5/5
I love this game
I like be this game 5/5
Me and my brother play this game soo much
A Players Player 2/5

So is it to my understanding that you offer a service and now I cannot log on ? How does one claim to have such service?
Bad Santa Event (October 2019) 4/5
By Blind Hunter 13lhehshsh
I should prefice this review by saying I love this game. I’ve been playing it for well over a year, as it is fun, and keeps me entertained during commutes, or down times during work.
I have participated in several of the events now and I have loved every single one of them, I’ve even purchased several of the packets for diamonds and extra rewards for the events so I could upgrade my units.
During this month’s event I have become increasingly frustrated by the way cards are unlocked. I have gone several days now without being able to collect any of the cards from watching the advertisements every 2-hours. I have watched approximately 20-advertisements from the store tab in the event’s page, and have received 2 sets of cards, each containing 3 individual cards. That is a net loss of 54-cards for my campaign game.
I have tried contacting the Studio Nord page, as well as the hustle castle page and I have not received as much as an acknowledgement of the issue. I’m leaving this comment in hopes one of you sees my plight and helps fix these issues in the game.
My gamer tag in game is BlindHunter13.
Bad support 1/5
Game is fun, but you better spend money to win. Oh, once you spend money, good chance the game will glitch and you will lose items that you paid for. Put in a ticket, they will tell you the problem was fixed but they do not reimburse lost items... Like it cost them money to do so. Worst customer service ever.
Seems very much like Fallout Shelter 4/5
By Royal Daddy-O
Similar layout although I like the change and staying with the comical theme. Small efforts of micro transactions but still very “free to play” playable so far.
One of my favorite games 5/5
Adquirí um recurso que deveria me dar 10x mais éter na masmorra, mas só dá 2x!!!! Favor corrigir o bug ou me devolver meus diamantes!
A good game overall 3/5
This is good game overall. It’s definitely a pay to win, but they all are when money is involved. The Arena is probably the part of it I like the least. Getting beat by guys less powerful is something I still don’t understand. But I guess that’s how it goes.
