Reasons why I decided to still give 5 Stars:
(1) I like the cute storyline filled with humor that makes me laugh. I spend hours laughing at the cheesy, slapstick humor of the story line. You need a good laugh, the way the World is right now.
(2) The graphics are beautiful, and there are cute little details, even on individual stat-boosting cards you equip on characters that are amusing to watch.
(3) The game is quite generous in its gifting. Even if most of the hero draws tend to start out low level; you can build them up. I don’t mind putting in a little money now and then, because the developers are so generous and they work really hard.
(4) They are responsive when things mess up, are good about trying to fix things quickly, and they give good Consolation Gifts when something does not work properly in the exceedingly large, complex programming.
With the recent download, things are messing up a “LOT”. I expect, we should be getting an Avalanche of GEM COMPENSATIONS for the Many Problems we are currently dealing with.
(5) The only advertisements in the game are entirely voluntary. You choose when you want to see them, and are rewarded for watching them. There are also some really good products that match what you like, if you allow settings to match your preferences.
Although the “Rewards Wheel” that appears after viewing ADs is currently “INVISIBLE”; just spin your finger in the empty space, and you get your rewards. :-)
My one wish for this game (Besides the Impossible Request for “No More BUG”, insect infestations) is for there to be a Real-time Co-op Multiplayer component added in which we can interact with our friends to battle monsters somewhere the way you can do on console games; although I am not sure if cellphones can handle that sort of thing. It would definitely be a Major Draw to this game. However, it is already so massive. You definitely need a top notch phone with plenty of Memory and Hard Drive Space to handle it. Otherwise; welcome to the World of Freeze and Crash, which occasionally happens even with a Top Notch Phone.
Thank you to the hard working developers for a fun, great game with nice music, light hearted storyline, and lots of side quests to explore. Hopefully, you can figure out the cause of the Current Plague of Bugs and “MASSIVELY COMPENSATE” ALL OF YOUR PLAYERS. Thanks in advance. :-)
I’ve been playing this game ever since launch. It hasn’t changed at all when it comes to technical improvement. First off it takes them 8-10 hours EVERY week to complete an update which is ridiculous how they haven’t shortened that down. Secondly if something goes wrong (like a Facebook login mishap) they can take up to a whole week fixing it and providing generic updates on the situation. Meanwhile players that aren’t affected still get to play and reap the “compensation” for the issue that only the affected players should receive. They have a terrible business model and they’re extremely greedy. The game was and is fun to play when it’s running perfectly but that’s a rare sight to see. Just be weary, this review may also get taken down due to the brutal honesty that APO developers hate and have removed.
This game is honestly just getting worse. I’ve played it since it came out and it just feels more and more like a giant advertisement for Ariana Grande. Game started out great, but just feels like a giant cash grab anymore. I haven’t spent a ton of money on the game, just bought the special limited time bundles here and there but can honestly say I feel 100% scammed from those bundle. Do yourself a favor and don’t waste any of your hard earned money on this “game”. Update, now they are locking you out of your account and saying they are giving affected players compensation, but not actually giving it to everyone. Absolute train wreck of a game.
first off f what anyone says I’ve been playing this game for years so best little arcade character collectible type game you could find!!! yes I agree that the Ariana Grande add on was a little bit much on the units but hopefully they’ll get better overtime like they always do great game five out of five from the pixelated graphics to the animations of the moves and the units it’s so fun!! only app besides warhammer ill spend money on its great! I also started with no purchases and they set me up in the begnin
This game is quite fun, it’s far and away the mobile app that I’ve stuck with the longest, going on 4 years now. The most recent game update came with a major change to the UI, and it’s just awful. Rated 2* because it’s still a great game, but the UI doesn’t feel intuitive and it looks extremely basic. I know minimalistic design is popular right now, but I want to play a Final Fantasy game with an awesome, graphical design. I feel like the change was unnecessary and a waste of development effort.
Been playing this game for over 10 years since the beginning when 5 star characters were the strongest you could get. Just this weekend I was having an issue because it wouldn’t verify my Facebook account which had my account linked to it. I messaged the support to assist and got no response. I have spent a third of my life on this game just to lose it all because it wouldn’t link to my Facebook. Totally disappointed.
I have no idea how a newbie player is supposed to advance when literally every new event that appears is so difficult and requires players to have certain characters with a stat boosts the easy quests seriously need a update so newer players can catch up how is that even possible for years y’all haven’t implemented something for players to catch up. Absurd
Are you kidding? I understand this was done as a money grab, but how pathetic. 100000% should never have even been considered putting Ariana Grande in this game. It’s Final Fantasy, not some kind of pop music awards game…literally getting rid of all Square Enix stuff now. All respect lost
2 stars for all the memories, I had a ton of fun with this game years back. It’s become full of hard to follow progression, it ain’t satisfying anymore. If this game could revert to the magic that it was years ago, I’d play it avidly. But that’s gone forever now.
Very clean update it looks so much better and up to “style” now I feel. Great job, some things I feel may be still in progress but so far so good!
Kudos to the support team that helped me retrieve my account from day one when it was acting like a brand new one.
