Terrible, Just Like the Sequel


It would seem that the first game is even worse than the sequel. The enemies are insanely overpowered, your units are extremely underpowered, and the enemy gets the advantage in every situation. For example, I'm currently stuck on an impossible level in the Zombie Rising campaign. Why? Because the enemy uses the formation of a Super Shield Soldier, a group of soldiers, a Priest/Monk, and then behind that it just spams riflemen. This formation is impossible to beat because the troops at the front line never die, and it's impossible to just go around to kill the priest yourself, because not only does he just heal himself (which should have never been allowed), but the spammed line of riflemen behind him mow you down in a second or less. And coins come in far too slowly to justify the difficulty ramp. Not to mention that all upgrades past a certain point cost gems. So you're pretty much screwed. Overall, this game and it's sequel are fun until you realize how completely insane the difficulty ramp is, and how weak your character is, even though he's supposed to be the strongest character on the battlefield. This games are honestly a disgrace. They had the perfect setup, but the developers just ruined it. So in other words, this game and the sequel need to be fixed. MAJORLY.

Fun! If you like losing and spending tons of money...

loll 64

This was fun when I got it and in the same day I started hating it... First of all the upgrades cost a ridiculous amount of money compared to how much money you earn a level. Your troops are also EXTREMELY underpowered and the enemies are EXTREMELY overpowered! One of the wheel zombie enemies can take forever to kill and can take down ALL your troops no matter how many you have or what level they are in a few hits. That's just one of the EXTREMELY overpowered enemies... The zombie campaign is even worse! Your units are even more underpowered and can be killed by a FARMER in 1-2 hits! Also the rate at which you accumulate points to summon troops is so slow that I a will be surprised to see anyone summon more than 5 units at once after level 20 or so. Some upgrades require gems right off the bag and ALL upgrades require gems after a while. Completely pay2win unless you put a TREMENDOUS amount of time into this game without buying anything with your own money. I'm extremely disappointed as this game could have been good. Don't waste your time with this unless you are willing to pay ridiculous prices for gems or spend an ENORMOUS amount of time on this game. 👎👎👎

More emeralds


You would be better off charging for the game and making it easier to get emeralds because most of us will never buy in app purchases on the principle, the only game I've ever done in app purchase was a one time upgrade fee that was needed to compete "air wings" but most are not stupid enough to buy emeralds, please give us more credit than that because it's insulting to our intelligence and for those that do spend than its a shame on your company for taking advantage of ignorance, having said that, this game is really fun without spending money too, I love it and beat both editions without spending a dime, I am more interested in fully upgrading my characters at this point and I don't think that's possible without spending real money, a flat fee is a more ethical way to run a gaming platform, but that's just my humble opinion, kudos on the gameplay though, really great great overall 9 out of 10
