Customer Reviews

Don't is practically not readable

You have to hold your phone to your face to be able to read the text, it is very very small and the zoom function does not let you zoom in far enough.

Other than the font/zoom issues this game is really great. I have not run into any other issues with this game and found it to be very enjoyable for short periods of time before I get too frustrated to continue playing because I cannot read anything. I have great eye sight too, my wife on the other hand does not and she could. It play this game due to the font size/zoom issue.

Please fix the game

I would give this game a 5-star rating. The game is really well made with a lot of great features. Leveling up the towers is a ton of fun! Graphically the game is visually beautiful for a phone app. But...

The game has an issue for me that sent me back three levels and six hours of gameplay. This has happened twice. Can't play the game offline then online, nor can it be saved. Restarting the app sometimes will make it freeze. The biggest issue is the loss of gameplay twice.

Like what was previously said, this game deserves five stars. The glitches make it like Sisyphus, endlessly bound to hell.

Don't waste your time

This game would be great if it weren't so buggy. There are lots of items to be gained by watching an advertisement, which I'm fine with....if they work. The problem is that often when you click on the ad the screen just goes black and stays that way until you force shut down the game. Or option two is you watch the entire ad and get no credit for it. Either one is especially annoying if it happens right after completing a level, in which case you don't get credit for the level either.
