Build and customize your arsenal of deadly towers, ammunition, and power-ups until other players start stealing your deck ideas. Did someone say other players? We've got WHOLE TOURNAMENTS full of people for you to dominate over. Stacks upon stacks of people. Like a tower of meat and bones.

We've spent the last few years spinning the TD genre into something so wild and dangerous, we’re not even sure if the world is ready for it. But hey, it’s your game now, you tell us — we’re in it for the long haul.

A word of warning, though:
This game is hardcore. If you’re into tickling digital kittens, stick to playing The Tribez (Get good vibes — play The Tribez!©).
This game will make you miss your stop during your daily commute!
This game will make you cry tears of joy in unexpected places.

The Survival Arena focuses on these key factors: it’s not about hiring the best troops or winning PvP battles, it’s about prevailing against all odds! Build mighty towers, upgrade them, and try to hold off hordes of incoming enemies!
You know that feeling when it seems like Friday, but it's actually Thursday? Survival Arena is kind of like that. It’s so addicting that when you finally put down the game, you'll realize you’re 93 years old with 20 grandchildren. And it'll have all been worth it.

High in the raging cyclone of thunder and endless gales, a huge flying Arena Ship makes its way across the endless ocean below. The Arena is legendary and surrounded with myths and superstitions. They say it's run by a Captain long lost to madness. A man who has pirated and plundered more than all other captains combined. To have some fun with all the treasures in his late years, he decided to throw the biggest challenge across the floating isles — The Survival Arena Tournament.

Any Captain brave enough can venture into the eye of the storm, and if fortune turns its favorable side, they will find the arena. Thousands have tried to beat the challenges and survive, but none could beat the records. It’s time for a new challenger to accept the challenge of the Arena and to become the Grand Champion.

Survive if you dare.

More info about new update


Ok so the only way to get a chest is either placing 1st through 3rd in any event, or you can open the 2 free generic chests that contain a few cards, or buy them with shards. Prior to the new update, up to rank 20 used to get at least the bronze chest.

The gold coins used to allow you to pay shards to level up, now only come in chests or you can buy 50 for 4.99 US. These used to be a drop from beating the big bosses in each event.

But they did give about a 30 sky shard buff to all the ranks in each event! This doesn't help because you still need cards to upgrade. The option to upgrade via sky shards alone requires an insane amount of shards. Honestly you need to tweek your exponential growth equation as well as the initial value for just upgrading without using cards.

From a monetary standpoint you have painted your customer base in a corner of the kitchen and then set the house on fire! If you want to make money you have to give and take. I provided evidence that shows you took away all our grinding opportunities to upgrade our characters for free (save the 2 free small chests every 3-6 hours), and also made it insanely difficult to bypass the lottery system that is opening chests, so that we can upgrade the towers we need to defeat those fast and op mini bosses now.

Whoever thought up, and whoever motioned to have that thought implemented needs to be fired ASAP!!!!

Hey there Raja!

Various chests you get from tournaments, free chests and task also drop hero tokens! Mini-bosses who run fast also have smaller health pool than slow ones to make them easier to kill too. We've recently buffed some perks to help you out killing them and each upgrade of perks now give more damage bonuses!

This use to be my favorite game


This use to be my favorite game, I still do play it everyday, but it has unfortunately the most recent update turned it into a ‘pay to win game’. To upgrade your towers you need to get exp points for your towers(from chests) and when you have reached the exp limit you can use skyshards(in game currently) to upgrade the tower. You use to be able to get a good amount of skyshards from just playing the game, but now you get almost none unless you place in the top 3 of a tourney. The only other way to get skyshards is to pay( a lot of money) To upgrade your hero it takes hero coins and if I wanted to upgrade my hero just one level it would cost me $30. It’s ridiculous. Also, there are ‘mega weekend’ tournaments every weekend. You use to be able to watch an ad to get more entries to them but now you can only pay money to enter them. They really ruined the game, it’s very disappointing.

Hey Cheese!

Initial change was so players don't just play tournament once without trying or anything and get prizes for that! We however rolled back the and increased it to top 25 places getting chests with some shards instead of it being top 4 as we saw that wasn't working it out!

Thanks for the feedback as it our player thoughts on the game is one of things that helps us make the game better and more enjoyable for everyone!

App crashing whenever you try sudden death


Just downloaded the game today. Finished the tutorial and played one sudden death game. I enjoyed it so I wanted to play again but when I I tried to the app crashed in the loading screen almost immediately. This happened the next 4 time I tried. For an app with a 4star rating this is unacceptable.

I came here and the majority of the reviews are 1-2 stars. Not sure how they have an almost 5 star rating. They have +20,000 review which feels astronomical for a game less publicized and more popular apps and games. Am I accusing the developers of inflated/fake reviews? Am I also blowing off steam because I can't play their game because it is currently broken?

Yes. Yes I am.

Please fix.

EDIT: I figured out the cause of the constant crashing. There is a specific ad/promotion that whenever it is shown after attempting to launch any PVE mode will cause it to crash. Which means you're playing ad-roulette anytime you want to play a PVE mode. Considering this is the most commonly shown ad there is about a 10-20% chance you won't get that ad. All you can do is hope and pray.

This is ridiculous, and completely unacceptable for a game to have such an obvious bug and not have it fixed already. Games should work 100% of the time.

0 out of 5 stars don't recommend until they fix the problem.
