Generic and insane package costs


Graphics and basic gameplay aren't anything special these days. As with most of these types of games the difficulty climbs far higher quicker than t should. All to make the packages look more enticing over a huge tedious grind. The packages are hugely overpriced and don't even say what's in them. $10 for a bag of gems for example. What's a bag though? 100 gems? 500? 50? Then with $70-$100 dollars packages it's even worse to not have the items easily seen. That's not even getting into the freezes and crashes. Raids could of been something different and fun yet the controls are so bad it's only frustrating. The mini games of fishing and farming are extremely boring and slow. So much wasted potential wasted on insane prices with the gameplay to match the garbage monetary practices. Basically it's a pay to win type game for people who don't mind their "micro" transactions being a minimum of $10 for small amounts of gain.

Developer Response

Hello ZachtheRed, We appreciate your feedback. Regarding the Gems/Package you can select the Package and see the contents and it will show all the details. The recent 1.0.1 Update has fixed most of the crashing/freezing issue. Hope that you can check again and see the fixes. Thank you.

Love it love it love it!!!


I’ve read some of the reviews that have given a 2-3 Star and I’m kinda surprised. I’ve been playing for the last week or so and I’m finding I’m addicted to this game lol. Great graphics and music and game play. While you do grind a lot of the time I think that’s what I like about it, the game doesn’t just toss you a golden spoon, you actually have to work for it. There are things about the market, fishing and feeding the crazy dancing cow that could be revised to offer a bit more from farming but maybe that’s something that may happen in a update. As with most new games that are worth while there’s a fair amount of polishing, adding and updating to do to keep players drawn in and the replay value high. For me, I love it! And can’t wait to see what goodies await the future. Good job Devs! Keep up the good work:D

Started off great BUT!!!!


I loved the game when I first started playing it and I don’t mind supporting these kind of games with in app purchases but at least make sense when you charge such steep prices. I bought the level up package and it stopped at level 72 or whatever, the game now goes up to level 88 but the package doesn’t refresh and go back to 88??!?! Okay, forget that and let’s talk about how these events are straight trash. Summoners war advertised this game and that’s why I downloaded it and I loved that games events so I thought this game would have cool events too, nope. They’re only worried about getting more likes on Facebook. Smh, it’s a shame. Game had so much promise and y’all got greedy. Come up with cool events, come out with more characters, max out level cap at 100 and fix the level up package too. Do something quick or this game is going to die fast.
