Fans Have Spoken – reviews from real players:

“This game is Awesome! Challenging and entertaining. Not just some gem or gummy game. Terrific find!”

“This is like the version of Puzzle Quest I never knew I wanted. Oodles of quests, challenges, guild activities, cool monsters, arena fights, ranked fights, and man I could just play that treasure mini game all day.”

“This is gems and fee to play done right. You don't need to spend money but if you can, you will. It won't make you overpowered, but you will have fun with it. The game play is great and varied. There are tons of different options.”

“Different than other match 3 games, very fun and addicting. Keeps me entertained for hours.”

“This game is FANTASTIC! I was a huge fan of the original game
"Puzzle Quest" and this game is created by the same people. The other "Puzzle Quest" sequels have been disappointments and I haven't enjoyed them. This game however, has the same great game play.”

“It's refreshing to see a game without timers or stamina. I can play this game for hours without needing to wait.”

“This helped cure me of candy crush.”

“Over the years, many games have come and gone on my phone. But this one is always there. Free. No ads. No limited-play "lives" (think Candy Crush). No real downside. Your standard colored-gem matching game with a wonderfully nerdy twist!”

“My wife almost leave me because of this game, and it happened twice. Nuff said.”

We’ve introduced new Events that allow you to unlock the Hero Class. Class Events will run for new classes once they are released (3-day weekend events) and older existing hero classes (1-day events during the week).

You’ll receive free Sigils when you enter a Hero Class Event, and Valravens may drop more Sigils once you’re in battle!

Weapon Leveling!

You can now level your Weapons! The maximum level will depend on the rarity of your weapon. Common weapons can reach max Level 5, while Mythic weapons can reach max Level 10. Use new “Ingots” currency to level up. They come in 6 rarities: Common, Rare, Ultra-Rare, Epic, Legendary and Mythic. Weapons have also been given a type and home Kingdom.

No more upgrades please


Every time they do upgrades it messes everything up. I have been playing this game, believe it or not, for about 2 years. When I first started playing it was about earning trophies and upgrading troops. Now they have so many games and guild activities it’s kind of confusing. They also make it very hard to earn specific items to upgrade your troops. People that have started months ago have better and more troops than I do. Also I must have spent about $100 on this game. I should be a VIP member where I can do anything. But I am only at
VIP 4 and Cannot excess the VIP chests. Playing kingdoms at the hardest level should give us the highest talismans not the lowest. And to craft better troops and weapons you have to use 100,000 souls which is impossible to get unless you spend more money. So don’t waste your money on this game because it won’t help you. It is fun to play and I’ve made a lot of friends. Even though they are from different states and countries we have become close and that makes it interesting But all the upgrades and games that they added really slows the game down and causes a lot of problems so I have to keep rebooting the game. They make it more about you spending money to upgrade your troops. If I didn’t become friends with my Guild I would have deleted the game a long time ago.

Extremely fun and addicting match-3


This is my favorite match-3 game I’ve ever played. Well done to the creators. The one thing I ask for now is that they create the option to make it available in portrait mode. Also, it has some stability issues in that it tends to crash when opening.

UPDATE: so I’m level 405 now, and I’m having an insanely hard time getting arcane traitstones. I get celestial more often, surprisingly. So I would really love it if some balancing fixes happened, as I’m getting extremely tired of farming. I can farm one Explore mode for 2 days straight and not find ONE arcane traitstone. Also, why can’t I connect my progress to the PS4? I would love to play on there, but I’m not about to completely start over.

ANOTHER UPDATE: I’m level 730 now, and I STILL have not uncovered a mythic troop. This is extremely discouraging, especially since I’ve spent actual money on this game in the attempt to get mythic troops. I’ve opened countless chests. It’s getting old. I’ve been playing this game for many many months. I’m certainly not spending another dime. The game is still fun, and I especially like the addition of the daily quests, so I’m not changing the rating. But if I make it to 1000 without a mythic troop, I will stop playing. This is just ridiculous.

Developer Response

Hi Musiq, have you visited our community forums? - There are lots of helpful guides and people there to walk you through the methods to achieve a Mythic, like crafting one in the Soulforge :)

Too much variety


GoW, at its core, is a fun game. The number of team building options are fantastic, and the guild system does a great job rewarding those who’ve worked together within the game for a long time. The recent changes are obvious attempts at monetization that have diluted that system, though. The pets are pointless. Guild Wars are still a ton of fun, but the Raid Boss and Invasion events are dull grindfests that lack variety and encourage gem spending to progress beyond a certain plateau. That plateau comes a lot sooner if you don’t have top-tier troops for that week’s event, a more likely outcome now that the drop rates for Mythics have plummeted (except in VIP chests, I’d guess). Let guilds choose which events they want to do—if a guild wants to only play Guild Wars every week, let them do that. You can incentivize variety by allowing guilds that play the three different events type to gain more rewards, but those of us who would gladly sacrifice rewards to have more fun should be able to do so. As it is, I find myself virtually ignoring the game two out of three weeks, and I doubt that’s the outcome the devs want for dedicated players.
