Hate this game

Norm M

Graphics are great, etc, BUT this app does not have a feature that one can turn "hint" off. If there are about two "tiles" left to eliminate by match 3, a circular motion in a dif. color encircles them. I can plainly see where they are and the movement is very distracting and drives me crazy because I have ADHD. Waste of money for me, the distracting motion eliminates my enjoyment. I would give this app 5 stars otherwise. I forgot about this annoying feature because have earlier Rome versions that I deleted. In addition, I don’t like hints when the solution is glaringly obvious (even if I didn’t mind this feature

Just bought this game & wish I hadn’t because screen is not responding as should a $4.99 app.

Even with my small fingers, I’m having a heck of a time moving the intended tile. Too often the tile I’m aiming for is not the tile that moves. Side puzzles are even more frustrating; very sluggish response.

Still, I can believe older reviews w high ratings because the game clearly could be nice. I appreciate that one can buy this game w/o option nor need of additional purchases. I appreciate the option of timed or relaxed mode + option of multiple player IDs. I like the additional puzzles scattered throughout the game.

Maybe prob is compatibility w iOS-11 & maybe devs are working on an update. Or not.

Fun when not glitchy


I have been a big fan of Cradle of Rome, so was hoping Egypt would be the same reward. The graphics are good, and the mini games are maybe even better but it crashes a lot. The music and general play experience are better in Cradle of Rome, but this game is fine.
