I love this game, but now I can't get back to my city.


I just updated my app, as I have several times since downloading, and now I can't login. The login screen has stated for the last 4 hours( now I have lost several productions) that I have no internet connection and my login failed. It is obviously something wrong with the network, as I clearly have an internet connection( I am writing and posting a review on the internet...) It is already such a pain to achieve some of the goals having to wait for days, and now I will be missing out on the rest of the fall promotion. I have several productions waiting on pick up and a half finished expedition. Other than this recent update I have had very few issues and I hope this bug is fixed quickly. I do think some of the quests call for too much time and the game does not give enough side quests to really keep you interested while waiting. I have taken long breaks from the game a few times because the quests take multiple days to complete with no side quests. I gave the game four stars, but I hope to be able to give it five after the bug is fixed, or I may be done playing all together if I can't get back to my city, because I am NOT starting over. It took me way too much time to get where I am.

Frustrating on mobile


I like games of patience. This one is promising but when I started, my story quests were hindered by an internal error and by the time support fixed it, I was way ahead of the story quests and would have to do them after I already did them, which wastes time and resources. My name and profile seems to be that of an old man. I asked them to change it because I couldn't (it's the first quest) due to the internal error. It wasn't fixed.


I'm not stuck on the first quest. I'm stuck on the other quests because by the time the first quest was fixed, I was way ahead and have to basically redo everything I've already done. Like... Build 3 Stilt Houses. Why would I build 3 stilt houses when my population lives in tile roof houses and chalets? I lack the space and my population can't go down as they are all being used for production. Waste of time and resources. Makes it frustrating. I am, however, stuck in progressing in research because of a bug. I've researched and unlocked militia, but the game is saying I need to research it to progress. It also didn't give me the soldier barracks that came with completing the block. That's a serious bug or glitch. I did contact support. We'll see if they are any help.

Thank you for your Feedback! We're sorry to hear, that our support wasn't able to help you in a proper way. Are you still stuck on the Quest "Reveal yourself!"?

Same Developer BS


Innogames puts out a series of games that lets people with small members get their jollies off attacking weaker players. This game, while no where near ad bad ad Grepolis, is one of them. It’s a fun game in the sense of building your town through the ages. At some point, you start to be attacked and can handle it because you’re the same level. Then things change. The developers decide to put you in new neighborhoods every week and with people severely more advanced in the game. As I type this I’m in my 3rd neighborhood this month, I know that because I start to get attacked by players who are 20, 30m more points ahead of me. Instead of grouping players of similar types they reward the long time high level players by making them the #1 player well over the rest in the neighborhood. You literally cant get anything done and have to pull up roads so nothing can get plundered and you cant produce anything until they, on what seems like a whim, move you to another hood. They are curt and rude with their replies, even condescending. Here’s a big middle finger to you Innogames. I wont be playing anymore of your crappy games again.

Hello, thank you for your feedback! You can also buy the city shield in the friends tavern to protect yourself from being attacked by other players for 24, 48 or 72 hours. Regards!
