Customer Reviews

revisited this game after a year or so

I tried this for a few weeks on and off at release and after rought 6 months periods. Now I revisit it and am pleased to see this burning trash fire down to it's last ambers. No discernable human population (0 official facebook likes on the game's announcements) and the content updates seem to be an automated system left behind to recycling content and releasing "new" cards with old artwork but higher stats.

It seems SE has long abandoned hope on this game as well, I would not be surprised to find that there is no longer an office at SE for this game (maybe an empty one.) There is virtually zero development done on it in it's 4~ years of existance. UI glitches and absent convenience features that existed at release are still in the game.

Final Verdict: You can probably save yourself some phone hd space and time and simulate playing this game by finding a soda machine that eats your quarters and pretend like there's gameplay, because that's roughly what you'll be doing if you install this. Putting in money and getting annoyed.

Very good game!

This game is really fun to play, actually. I have no problems with it whatsoever. The only thing I would like to improve is to increase the rate of getting a 5 star guardian on either course. It breaks my heart knowing that the game will officially end in 2017, after just getting back into the game. I hope that you'll find ways to improve the game to satisfy everyone before that, but I will continue to play the game to the fullest.

Game is filled with cheaters & errors

This is a pay to win game.

Cons: You have to constantly hunt for new 5* cards to compete in the tower. They changed the trading system to discourage eBay sales but all it did was clog up your own stash with Bound cards. Stats for old cards just do not compare with new cards. The drop rates for hunting has been horrible since the start.

Pros: They cut down the stamina replenish to 1/min. Constant updates. Beautiful card art.
