I downloaded this game for the puzzles they advertise but 90% of it is war, building things, waiting for dialogue…. And very little puzzles. Maybe it was the culture I chose but every person in the game refers to me as “my liege” and I got tired of that bc I’m a woman. Would be nice if the game didn’t assume I was a dude. Played for a couple of days and deleted it. Don’t waste your time. Unless you are a dude wanting a game about war and building things, and don’t mind supporting an app that’s sexist and employs false advertising. They even had the gall to run an ad saying they aren’t “one of those games” that isn’t what you expect when you download it, while showing only puzzles in the ad!
Edit in reply to Ebony’s response: I’m not talking about in game ads, I’m talking about the ad you run where there is literally a guy saying this isn’t one of those apps that isn’t what you expect when you download it…. And then it is literally one of those apps. False advertising. Like I wouldn’t even be mad (outside of the casual sexism which you didn’t address) if the game advertised itself as being what it is, showing the battles and building etc. but it doesn’t - it advertises as a puzzle game which it is not.
It’s funny how they have all these ads saying “don’t you hate these fake ads for puzzle games.” But that’s exactly what this is. The game is nothing like the ads. Even after you unlock the stupid puzzle portion of the game it does not look anything like the puzzles in the commercials! This game is lame. It’s just another city building war game PVP trying to grab your money, trying to encourage you to spend money to be competitive against other people who spent money. It’s boring. It’s derivative. It’s completely unoriginal. And it’s absolutely trying to fake you out with fake ads that don’t look anything like the game using ads that say “don’t you hate fake ads that don’t look anything like the game!” Yes I hate the advertisements and ad writers of this game way more than I hate the boring, unoriginal hacks developing this game. I would rate it zero stars but that’s not an option. I’m willing to bet most of the 5 star reviews are fake. Take a close look, many of the reviews show 5 stars but the txt of the review says it’s false advertising and a money grab.
The game is very entertaining, and I truly appreciate the effort that has gone into the graphics and every activity. I enjoy playing daily and watching my city grow.
That said, the developers have been slow (almost apathetic) to respond to legitimate complaints. For example, a member of our alliance recently wrote to them about another player who was sexually harassing her and was told to “block him.” At the very least, they should be investigating the allegations to ensure a safe community for the rest of us. Given this development, I will not spend another cent on packages until there is a definitive resolution, and I would encourage my friends and alliance members to do the same.
At the very least, the age rating should change to ensure a more mature crowd is in the chat areas and ensure that if sexual harassment continues, the receiving individuals are at least knowledgeable and mature enough to identify it and file a formal complaint, which I have encouraged my fellow alliance member to do.
I have played evony since Age 1 on PC back in 2007. I started plying Evony return of the king since 2029 I believe. This game is a lot of fun and you get to meet new people. Before they did the k40 update you didn’t have to spend much money to be able to participate in events. Recently I have found out that evony caters to big spenders and it is unfair how easily big spenders can get things in this game over people who do not spend much. They will leave a blind eye to rules broken by the big spenders because they want that money but people who do not spend as much get talked down to by customer support in a condescending way. My experience with customer support recently has left me not wanting to play this game and it’s very heartbreaking because I have spent over $20,000 on this game in the last 3 years.. money I will never get back… money I can not earn anything on… I did it because I enjoyed the game but after how customer support has treated me.. I no longer enjoy this game as much anymore.
The ads for this game say “are you tired of all those games that advertise fun play and you never get to see it?” Which is hilarious they made an ad for their game which describes their game. I downloaded this solely to leave a review as you can’t without downloading. Now I’ll uninstall. Scummy marketing practices on top of an even worse game.
Edit after developer “response”. Do you not understand English or do you just have a huge comprehension problem? Your ads specifically state aren’t you tired of ads that are nothing like the game. And in your response you contradict that. It’s false advertisement because the only thing people like about your crappy game are the puzzles which are less than 1% of the game play.
Also you make the main character so inept in the examples, and then go “it really takes some wisdom to solve these”. My unborn daughter could figure out the simplicity of these stupid puzzles. I wish this game would stop advertising and go away.
He jugado más de tres meses este juego y me encanta. Es emocionante, entretenido y te ayuda a olvidarte de los problemas de la vida real. También he puesto algunos dólares comprando recursos y gemas preciosas o aceleradores para que el juego sea aún más interesante. Sin embargo hace casi un mes en una actualización, los gráficos se distorsionaron y mi calidad de juego ha disminuido muchísimo y se me hace muy difícil distinguir colores y objetos en los mapas, lo que me convierte en un target fácil de atacar. He solicitado ayuda por diversos canales de servicio al cliente y solo uno me respondió hace 15 días que próximamente se arreglaría con la siguiente actualización. Eso fue todo. Ya no sé qué más hacer, la aplicación no se arregla ni siquiera desinstalando y volviendo a instalar. Repito: GRAN JUEGO, PÉSIMO SERVICIO.
First thing-the game is not at all as advertised. You have a castle and there are alliances, monsters, battles and wars. Generals, troops and dragons. There are different chat rooms where you make friends. The puzzles aren’t even 1% of what goes on. There is a lot to like about the game in concept, not so much in execution. It is buggy and often needs restarting. I know of several players who were locked out of the game and can’t get back in so they stop playing rather than start over. Mostly because it is EXPENSIVE. Their customer support is horrible. Sometimes not responding to requests for help at all . If the game were fixed it could be fun but the longer I play I just find it more frustrating as the days go by. What seems to hook people are the relationships. Stay away unless you’re rich and lonely.
I loved the commercials for this game. It looked like a puzzle game, trying to get the warrior to the treasure. But that is about 5% of this game. This really echoes back to games like age of war. It’s all about collecting resources, researching, upgrading, and building up your army to fight others, but by the time you join, you’ll be so far behind other players, they’ll easily get attacked and robbed. There are so many aspects to try to keep up, you spend the majority of your time trying to figure everything out. They want you to put a lot of money into this game otherwise you have to be patient.So needless to say, after a good month, I deleted it. I really wish commercials would represent accurately what the game is all about. So misleading.
If you are on youtube and see the terribly dubbed commercials about this game only being about puzzles theres a reason and a good marketing ploy. This game is more command and conquer mixed with upgrading JUST so you can play more puzzles which bases it on waiting… sound fun to you?? Does not mention that part at all to lure you in… If you dont want to wait you can empty your wallet. And by wait i mean DAYS for things to complete upgrading just to get more.
And developer, your response feels automated but in case its not, do you see a trend in our reviews? We know apps need ads. Just not suuuuper misleading ones. You would get more satisfied customers if the ads followed thru. You could also lessen wait times. Js
NOT A PUZZLE GAME!!!!
DO NOT DOWNLOAD IF THAT IS WHAT YOU WANT!!
This might be the biggest bait and switch game in the App Store. The ads made it seem like a puzzle game so I downloaded it. The puzzles are equal to about .01% of the game. You can only play a certain number of puzzles daily. Then you have to start spending money or waisting time building a kingdom which other players can come attack and destroy. There are “unwritten” rules that some random administrators will enforce by destroying the city you wasted time building just to get to the next puzzle. Literally the worst game I have ever downloaded!
