Evony for Negative User Reviews

It’s a money pit (but fun)Like most folk I was drawn into this by the puzzles and then realised it was a whole lot more. This was about 18 months ago. The server I play on is great, it’s a no kill so you have time and space to grow, unless there is a server war on. The reason I’ve down voted this to 3 stars is really because of the direction that Evony is heading. Slowly and surely Evony are taking the fun for non coiners (and coiners) away by removing the ability to grow and achieve things without spending money. Things are chopped and changed without any notice, often causing weeks of in game savings to be lost and there’s never any come back. The customer service, whilst I appreciate that they are probably swamped, is woeful. Continually trotting our company buzz words and phrases, which are often meaningless and zero help. Anyway, play at your peril, it’s a money pit, but fun..Version: 4.35.2

Buggy and not just a puzzle gameI only wanted to do puzzles not all the other stuff. Sometimes you touch screen and nothing works in the puzzles. Eg collect or share after solving puzzle. Neither button worked.Version: 3.89.3

A Half Truth is the Worst Kind of Lie.I say half truth, but that is being overly generous to this game. The adverts show pin puzzles, and there are some of these, but these are not the point of this game. This is a build an empire game that has some (very few when compared to to the rest of the game)puzzles in it. You access the puzzles as you build up your keep, but to do that, you need to build barracks, farms, a university etc, but doing that takes a lot of time, particularly when you get past the first levels. If you decided that you want to build your empire, you will find that there are some very powerful cities that you will be ready to plunder your city at any given opportunity so real growth will be very hard. It would be kind of nice to say that you too can have such a powerful empire, and all you need to do to get there is expend time and patience. I would be lying if I said that though. The only way to progress and to grow your empire so that you will be able to hold your own will be if you are willing to spend money, lots of money. Personally, I’m not willing to spend money and time trying to get to the possibility of playing a couple of puzzle games every two weeks..Version: 4.32.2

UnplayableToo many updates, glitches, and no customer support.Version: 4.61.0

Nothing like the ads, it’s a battle PvP/alliance gameWinds me up that the ads for this game and the previews you see here ARE NOTHING LIKE THE GAME. They are a tiny part of the game. I wish they’d just invent a game that is their ads, and just separate the two. The game itself is fine if you like that sort of join an alliance, build a city and fight with everyone kind of thing. Problem is that the game is entirely dependent on the amount of money you’re willing to spend. Although you can grow without spending much, everything’s for sale, and there are plenty of people spending massive amounts to be the biggest. Big players run the server, bully smaller players and dominate a very toxic chat environment. Definitely not for kids. World chat is vile sometimes. If you’re hit all your gains can be wiped out by a massive player who’s just spent money to get big. It’s frustrating. Having said that, there are some great people there when you get to know them, but you’ll never be one of the top players unless you spend….Version: 4.46.1

LoadingWhy does it it take like for ever to load this game???.Version: 4.72.1

FALSE ADVERTISING! Nothing like the adsWe have laws in Canada about false advertising. Reporting to on the store and the Federal Government for breaking “Truth in Advertising Laws” in Canada..Version: 3.83.2

I hate this game and it’s advertisingNever has advertising for a game so completely devoid of any enjoyment been some how more painful than the actual game itself. The company thinks it’s being clever by commentating on the typical mobile game ads where take some who’s been huffing leaded gasoline in a hotbox and ask him to do the puzzle equivalent of wiping, as well as the adverts showing a game that doesn’t exist and is not represented in actual gameplay. But somehow they’ve made me want to cave my skull in even more than before, having to wait an endless 5 seconds before I can skip, which is 5 seconds more than I need to see. In short, I hate this company, this game, and it’s advertising, and I feel sorry for anyone who had to work in this to make ends meet..Version: 4.29.1

CoinersIf your not a coiner you should join active alliance. There are no lone wolfs in this game unless you have billions of power. That may not save you either lol. The more active your alliance and you are as a member the easier bubbles are to buy from alliance shop. You don’t have to coin to get bubbles just have to be in good alliance. This is definitely a game you’ll have to put time in to level up. Game is made for players who pay but if you join them you can benefit from them. Join there rallies to kill monster it would take a non coiner years to kill. I’ll be honest chances of a non coiner making it to keep 32 is almost impossible. Lol it’s impossible unless you pay at least a little. Best way to get rss is to never open anything ever. Untill you are going to upgrade buildings or make troops, traps. The better your alliance the faster you’ll grow. Battlefields are unbalanced. So one week your alliance may win easily next week your alliance won’t stand a chance. Svs is worse because of coiners. You would think say sever 150 would dominate sever 230. Lol not how it works in a game that is pay to win. This game would be awesome if there was no paying at all. If everything could be earned by simply playing. If you have hope of reaching keep 35 without paying don’t bother never gonna happen. Your life would be evony and you still won’t make it to k35 without paying..Version: 4.1.0

Rubbish gameBeen playing a week now. Every day all resources stollen by players that have been playing for months. Ridiculous as impossible for new players to progress..Version: 2.4.1

Buggy and a cash grabThis game has always had ads literally everywhere, popping up constantly and all over the screen. Playing longer than 5 minutes you get the point, you know where to go to buy things with real money, repeating it constantly is annoying and excessive. You’ll make a lot of money with micro transactions regardless of the million shiny buttons and banners to direct players to the store and the incessant pop up’s that actually drive people away. Second up, constant bugs. Your marches get stuck at 0:00 for ages, the game lags out and doesn’t do the things you triggered, crashes, events not working as planned/announced, and just now today it won’t even load because “your device doesn’t have enough space” when there is 30gb of free space on my phone! Is anyone testing your releases? Every “fix” pushed breaks even more things. Overall it’s a decent enough time killer if you’re willing to have micro transactions pushed down your throat and deal with the bugs. Rather complicated to learn everything at first and you’ll still be finding out how the game works for ages. Eventually you level up enough that it’s a push things a few times a day and wait ~3 days to several months for something to upgrade so it gets pretty boring unless you’re active in an alliance doing rallies..Version: 4.17.4

This game is a fraudUpdate 2/2/23: Customer Service continues to change its story and marginalize the losses caused by poor network services as well as any issue with the false advertisements. If I could give negative stars, I would. I want my money back! This game should be removed from the App Store. After a more than a year of playing and building and spending thousands of dollars, none of the puzzles you see advertised anywhere are actually in the game and network services are so bad, the game is completely unplayable at times (especially during battles). This results in losses to in-game assets which usually costs money and cannot be recovered due to customer support who seemed to be trained to lie and marginalize players. Random glitches and network lag also cause losses to in-game assets which you pay for, but cannot recover. Further, the developer is constantly producing ways to dilute the value of in-game assets by reducing free rewards and content that players thought they would always get before spending money. They also produce new premium content that outperforms old premium content many players spent money on and cannot be upgraded or redeemed (generals are the shining example). Some of the statements and nearly all of the images you see in the description are blatant fabrications and/or fabrications to get people to start playing and spending within their game. I can’t believe Apple would let this type of fraudulence continue in their app-store..Version: 4.39.0

Not a pull the pin gameThis is a build, wait, collect, battle game with a few puzzles. The devs will tell you it’s a pull the pin game and if you complain about that they say that pull the pin is in there. Which it is, barely. So I downloaded it just so I could say, IF YOU WANT A PULL THE PIN GAME, SEARCH PULL THE PIN IN THE APP STORE. ITS THE EASIEST WAY TO GET THE GAME THEY HAVE ADVERTISED. I just see so many complaints and although I don’t play either of these types of games the deceptive adds drive me up the wall. Why would they not just advertise what they have because they might actually interest people who might actually want to play their game….Version: 4.24.2

PatheticBeen playing this game for a while. I enjoyed the comraderie in my alliance. Great planters willing to help you learn and play the game. If you are thinking of joining and playing this game, stay away from server 1203. There are some serious issues with bullying that the support team is unwilling to do anything about because they have garnered so much money from the biggest player on that server. Any fun I had is overshadowed by this player and her supposed loyal followers. I want to say this is a great game but inaction on the part of the publisher is killing any joy I had left..Version: 4.70.0

KIt’s a good game just still getting used to it.Version: 4.65.1

Don’t. Even. Bother.Literally saw the ad for this game and it was so frustrating that I downloaded it to see how difficult it really was. As soon as I downloaded it, the very first thing it asks of you is to choose a ‘culture’ (i.e., what group you want to belong to) and right after I chose, the game froze and stopped working :)))) Refreshed thrice and nothing worked. Absolute garbage 🗑️..Version: 4.50.2

Preview is a lieDon’t be fooled by the preview, this is not the game you think it is. Full strategy game. Building you own and battles. Not a silly shooting a dancing fool game. ***Response from the developper says that it is included, been paying daily for 3 years, trust me, there is none of the dancing fools you shoot at.Version: 4.70.0

Looking for a new game?Keep scrolling, this is possibly one of the worst games available in apps. Even the whales hate it but won’t quit hoping the nerfing and mechanics will be fixed, have been hoping on this for 12 months and counting. The developers are on a par with camel and that horrendous group that gave us GOW and MS, there’s much better games out there, try ROK or their newer game call of dragons. $20k gives you a sub par account in this game that is zeroable in one hit costing you thousands to heal, so everyone permanently shields. If tile hitting is your jam this game is for you. And reading the reviews about copy paste responses in customer service I’m laughing real world reading their same cut and paste responses here. Pathetic..Version: 4.46.1

Does not value customer baseI’ve played Evony for over a year. This game has a PvP feature called Battlefield- Battle of Constantinople which becomes one of the primary competitive aspects of the game. Players spend thousands of dollars to try and be competitive. Unfortunately, for up and coming players trying to compete with mega coiners, the All Star battlefield gameplay experience is riddled with gameplay issues, lag, glitches, etc. I’ve been to multiple All Stars and after the Season 9 experience, I’ve decided to stop spending money and considering leaving the game. After attempting to work with their customer service, where I provided in game screenshots of issues I experienced which included being locked out of the game, unable to load back in, heal glitched just to name a few, they repeatedly send automated responses that won’t acknowledge the proof provided. Other players receive compensation for these issues and there seems to be no logical rationale to support who gets customer service and who doesn’t. I enjoyed the game for a while and I wished that the developer team would fix the issues and the customer service department made a real effort to preserve the satisfaction level of paying customers. Be careful with managing expectations of this game. It demands a lot of time and the return isn’t worth the investment when you’re getting screwed out of rewards..Version: 4.39.0

Different from advertisingJust wanted to solve some puzzles like in the advertising, however it’s a different game looks like a strategy game . Uninstalled.Version: 3.89.8

Bullies, pay to win and awful supportThe game itself has been created very well and it is good game if it didn’t have all the negatives it had. There are too many negatives with this game such as the bullies. There are narcissistic, and sadistic people that come onto the game, and spend at least £100+ and they love to annoy other people for the sake of it it’s ridiculous. Also, If you don’t pay for the game, it’s incredibly difficult to level up unless you spend your whole life without a single break playing this it’s quite pathetic. If you don’t spend any money you might as well not install it and try another game. Also, if you do spend money (I’ve spent about 4.49 on this) my game crashed and I lost everything and support didn’t do anything to help at all. I would not suggest installing it and you can look at the other 1-2 star reviews which I’ll do a quick summary of. ‘’Don’t let you or you’re kids play this’’, ‘’This is full of people that spend >£2000+’’ and ‘’The support didn’t help me at all and only said you’re package has been sent’’ I would highly suggest not downloading this game and if you do spend money you’ll probably not get it, I didn’t and other people haven’t. The levels on this game are quite decent and well made however it’s just the other stuff that I’ve stated ruins the game. It doesn’t matter if the support does reply, they won’t do anything but I would highly suggest not installing this as it’s a waste of time and money..Version: 4.23.4

Could be a 5 star but……I was drawn into this game through the puzzles but became addicted to the general gameplay quite quickly. I am in my second time round playing the game. I gave up the first time because of the toxic behaviour of some players. It is happening again on the server i am on now and this is a big minus to the game that the coiners can do what they please and bully other players. You complain and nothing gets done so Evony doesnt follow its own rules. The game has glitches, most games do. But when they turn out to be permanent it harms gameplay. There has been a change in monster strength or application of buffs. Wounded on monsters, mainly ymirs, has increased but it is ignored. Customer support just closes the ticket rather than resolves it. This is why it is 3 star for me. Fix the glitches and the lag and being able to do something about players who bully. Also make the game more available to free to play players, have more events that anyone can win, not just the strongest. More and more events are being aimed at those who pay and it is becoming less enjoyable. Also the 3 days between events, needs brightening up. This could be 5 star..Version: 4.58.1

Do not waist your moneyThis games is very expensive and the rules are crazy. I have spent a lot of money on this game stupidly probably around $200 and they have set it up so you vacantly lose a massive amount of your wealth if you are attacked and to heal troops they want you to use the rest of your resources. It’s insane to spend so much money for such little return. The game also constantly crashes or freezes..Version: 3.87.13

Very poor game.This game is simply for profit for the makers. The game play is very bad. Must hide in a bubble from larger credit card holders and you can’t win a battle against the richer players. The game is rigged so you feel like at casino and flashing lights to spend real money for fake items with the hope you can progress in the game. Yet you would have to spend thousands to get enough resources to beat the top guys and as soon as you are high ranked you will be attacked for your resources if you don’t hide them. You have to unhide to upgrade the building etc yet if your short of one item like bricks all your resources can be taken. The chips are very cheap in order to help you develop and get more expensive. If you sleep longer than 8 hours and don’t have a bubble on at 8:01 you will be attacked and loose any arms and resources. Don’t waste your time or money. Command and conquer game 20 years ago was ten times as good. Backwards in game development. You kids would be progressing faster at the casino. With your credit card..Version: 4.58.7

MehGames seems tedious and boring, the ads make the game look high quality and clear graphics but it almost looks like it’s from the ninety’s.Version: 4.26.2

Good game let down by big issuesTo be fair this is not a bad game although very expensive on the cost of packages in comparison to what you get. My issue is with the lag and bug issues which constantly happens causing you to lose items which you have purchased which you pay for and don’t get or when you do you use it the game lags out taking the items you used but not getting it I.e. you use a speed you press the speed up the game lags out only to come back with not only the speed up used but didn’t actually give you the speed up. I have had lag outs during battle causing me to get hit bad as there is nothing you can as you wait for the game to re-load meanwhile all troops have been wiped out costing you millions in resources and actual cash to replace. And customer services just fob you off with send us a picture then we will ignore you after that terrible service considering the amount of money people spend on this game..Version: 3.86.12

Yet another strategy idlerYou know the type, build a forge, wait 3 days for it to upgrade before you can do anything else so it can generate 60 more metal in a day. And about 40 other options and upgrades that make no sense. Designed so you get tired of waiting and purchase the currency to skip the waiting period and get the game on track to do something remotely interesting. And those puzzles you see in the ad. They’re so mind numbing basic and completely idiotic. The only reason for the download was to see how entertaining those stupid puzzles can be, and well, a one star review was all i could give. Now I wish that since I’ve actually downloaded and now reviewed the ‘game’, that all the ads that they’ve spent most their budget on can disappear. Your game stinks, it’s unoriginal, and not in the least bit entertaining. I feel sorry for anyone who was forced to work on it..Version: 4.29.2

Needs a solo player modeIt’s ok but as soon as you get past level 11 you’re fair game and I quickly got sick of constantly depleting my resources repairing battle damage from opportunistic raids by other players. It needs a solo player mode where players can just do their own thing, avoid toxic alliances and stay out of the constant internecine warfare..Version: 4.54.2

Not as advertisedThe adverts show only the ‘pull pin’ game but the majority of the time you have to play a completely different game. The latest ads even go on about how other game developer ads aren’t the real thing but this is. “I’ve finally found the real thing” nonsense! Totally misleading and when people raise this issue in reviews they get a ‘copy and paste’ response about ‘keeping playing and you will find the puzzle part’. It will probably turn up after my review too… Shame but if you want just a pull the pin puzzle game, look elsewhere… Edit - yep, same stock response from the developer as predicted. Their advertising is a bit like they show you only a football game in the advert (while telling you how annoying ads are that lie and don’t show you the true game) but don’t tell you that you have to play hours of chess games to access a little bit of the football game each time. I found ‘rescue hero’ pull pin game that is just that and nothing more. Much better..Version: 4.30.1

Great game but Cust support lackingI’ve played a few years had normal issues lag, bugs etc same as all games. Recently due to Evony tapping into my card 3 times instead of 1 I’ve had to use the customer service. They pretty much blow you off, I was told to provide receipt I did then they were like if you got an issue talk to your payment provider. Mate you have my money? Either give me the goods or you refund me. So beware the customer service really is a don’t care kind of deal. The game itself is fun, lot too learn but if you grind you can be ok without coining. You’ll never be topside without it though there’s just too many that coin. Also once a ton reach the new level of k40 they will expand again make more money. It’s an evolving game has a lot of working parts but seriously the game itself is good. Just pray you don’t need to raise a ticket, the service is terrible..Version: 4.19.1

Deleted this game 30th June 2022I finally got fed up and deleted this game, I tried it for a while built up to level 20 but, having been targeted or bullied by someone once two often, to find another General abducted and my Walls burning that’s it, while I felt some aspects were ok, like many other people I was drawn in to getting the game in the first place by the adverts suggesting it was a puzzle game. On one occasion I got attacked by the same player twice in a matter of minutes, I thought I would have a go at that person on my most recent incident when I was attacked and while I tried that another person from that person’s alliance attacked me again. Like a lot of others I feel things are stacked against you and you can’t really compete against the big boys so I won’t waste my time on it anymore. I also wonder how many of the better players are professionals in the employment of the developer to perhaps get people to spend money in order to compete. It’s not an exactly fair playing field if it’s a struggle to improve and you keep getting attacked to slow down any possible improvement 🤔.Version: 4.26.2

Stealing moneyPaid for a speed up package... took my money, but never gave me the speed ups!!! That’s called theft... fraud... not okay... has ruined the whole experience of playing the game. Before this occurred, I would have given five stars, but this is not okay. Give me what I paid for!!! It’s been days and I’ve been given the run around by customer service. Update: got a response from developer, but it was useless... nothing being done and pretending they don’t know anything about me... bs... total rip off... this game steals money!!!!! They have everything to correct this and they refuse to refund me my money or give me what I’ve paid for... theft... fraud!!!! Update: what a joke! They are lying about giving me what I paid for. I’ve given them proof of my payment and I’ve asked them for proof of giving me what I paid for... It’s been 11 days and I have not seen anything yet of what I paid for... scam, fraud, theft! Don’t play this game... they’re lying, stealing fraudulent developers with no respect for the players. 😡.Version: 3.82.10

DO NOT DOWNLOAD‘Evony is a LEMON ….” On every level! This isn’t a puzzle game, its a WAR game. All the developers want is your money. They don’t care about you or any problems you may have in the game, customer service might as well be non existent for the response you may be lucky to get from them. If you don’t spend you will be killed. The developers find every possible angle to make you purchase and if you don’t, well sadly ABSOLUTELY no point in playing at all! Having played this game for the past 5 years, the change in the money gouging is outrageous. It’s only competitive for those with deep pockets. Evony doesn’t want you unless you spend and spend BIG!.Version: 4.24.2

Don’t Play This Bad GameThe program is buggy and is designed poorly. A recent city contest bug and many players got screwed by developers. Developers chose to NOT do the right thing to correct their mistake. Terrible customer service. Horrible translator interface. Greedy developers just want money. They will reply nicely to this review. It’s fake. They pretend to be nice because they know you read this. They don’t care. They want your money and if there’s a problem caused by them, too bad for you..Version: 3.83.2

Terrible graphicsMake better graphics or your game will be 1 star 😒.Version: 4.22.1

Love/Hate relationship with EvonyI downloaded Evony for its puzzles but soon realised it was more of a war game then puzzle game. Thought I’d do a few puzzles then delete the game…..boy was I wrong!!! 1 year on and I’m still playing Evony till 3am. I’m totally addicted to it. It’s almost impossible for you to grow in this game unless you spend thousands of pounds or join a big alliance where they do non stop rallies. I’m lucky I’m in a server where the giant players (big spenders) help the little guys grow instead of burning them down. Although Evony has a kill event every week our server has banned killing members of our own server, we can only kill members of enemy server every 2 weeks when there SvS (server v server). This helps us little guys learn and grow. Evony is a place where you can make great friends and have fun. Now for the BAD bits: Evony has a lot of glitches specially during SvS and battlefield. Evony customer service - might as well be non existent. If you send them a message you get the same crap auto reply or you don’t get a reply at all. Most of my team and I have messaged Evony several times because of a serious issue, a lot of us are suffering losses but Evony customer service can’t be bothered to reply or rectify this problem my entire alliance is facing right now.Version: 4.53.2

Evony is a jokeSvs is forced upon us every 2 weeks which in itself is t a bad thing but the lag and glitches and delays is soo bad you can’t actually play. If you are a young server don’t bother trying. Yes you can shield but you can’t win even if you outperform the enemy and you can’t do much of anything other than stay shielded because of all thre major issues around Svs. Ebony never try to fix any of the issues after countless tickets. I wouldn’t even mind an acknowledgement saying they received the mail and will look into it. Boys are going rampant through servers aswel and they aren’t allowed but ebony does nothing on that either. 90 man alliance and 3 are real and the rest are bots and still evony does nothing. Game itself is great but I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone right now unless evony buck up their ideas..Version: 4.42.0

Good but brokenIt’s a great game but the developers have never ever heard of providing customer support and have no idea how to bug fix or optimize gameplay, seriously Bethesda could make a game with less glitches and crashing.Version: 4.36.2

Addictive but expensiveIt’s a great game but you pay to win, the service I am on is small and new so there’s only really 2 big alliances and there’s constant politics between the two. I hate how much you have to spend to get anywhere. The lagging is pretty ridiculous too. The few massive players on the server zero everyone as there’s no policing in what power/ level can attack another. There’s dead accounts everywhere too which is just a waste. I do enjoy the events but I think there needs to be more affordable options to play an make more generous gifts to keep people playing. A level 34 player should not be able to attack a level 24 player it took me months to get to my power of 41m and then 1 hit from one of the big placers and my power went down to 8.7 power - that was enough for me to quit the game..Version: 3.82.15

Customer Support - terribleI actually like this game, however, I am not happy with customer support. The other day my game became unlinked when I tried to get my brother to look after it due to work. I asked for support and it took 24 hours to get a response, then I followed every step that the support advised to relink the account, which was never followed up. After a number of months building the account I was not happy. I have made a number of attempts to communicate since and have been ignored. So in short, I like the game however the customer support does not exist and is terrible. That is my honest review..Version: 3.0.5

Not what they advertised.This was advertised as different puzzles to solve, no it’s not. You have to put an army together or something like that. I’m going to delete it now as this is false advertising..Version: 4.58.7

Don’t waste your timeLike many others be said, the game has potential. Problem is it’s only catered for the people no spend lots of money on it and they are allowed to constantly trample over the little people. They are able to literally attack you over and over till you are left with nothing and they can always find you no matter how much you move around. The 1000’s of puzzles you see advertised are a lie. I’ve not seen any puzzles like them, it’s the same crappy puzzles over and over again. This game is all about building your city and spending your cash. I downloaded this game for the puzzles and pushed on thinking I will see these puzzles. No such luck. Also had an issue with the game, support is a waste of space and as you can see all the responses are just copied and pasted to each. There are much better games out there to spend you time on. Such a shame and shame on you Evony..Version: 4.43.0

Support Doesnt Care for Non-Pay2Win PlayersA player was selling out the entire server to the enemy server during Server Vs Server event by telling the other server what the tactics and plans are and this is considered cheating based on game rules however because the player doing this is a Pay2Win player, support/game devs dont care that the game is ruined for the rest of the entire server!.Version: 3.87.3

Walk away now… in fact run awayI gave 1 star because zero was not an option. The game is very unstable and evony is misleading and doesnt deliver on some in game purchases. Recently I purchased the ability to play an event for the next 2 weeks and the event just disappeared. Multiple tickets all closed without resolution and weeks later and nothing (as usual)!! While it appears a fun game on the surface and gets you hooked quickly, you then get mislead and not delivered what you expect or what you pay for. Support generally is script then close ticket without resolution. Dont waste your time or money here! Waste it somewhere else lol Run now… run fast!!!! To add to review …. Next event and of course it doesnt work either!!! What a completely cr@p game!!! Unfortunatley i invested in game so hard to walk away. DO NOT get this app. You will regret it.Version: 4.65.3

Reviews are done by BotsBe Aware, review seems to be done by bots, alot of 5 star with generic name and empty word. this is a intense Pay to win game, period..Version: 3.82.6

A playground for bullies…This game costs over $2000 to get anywhere with a realistic chance of being a strong player. It’s full of narcissistic and sadistic weirdos (who mysteriously seem to have >$2000). There are strange rules created by senior players that aren’t written down anywhere or communicated but woe betide if you break them (=any money you have spent will be wasted). There are secret offline chat groups for the most senior players that organise purges of players that don’t spend any money on the game. There are many ghost cities left by players that have ditched this game for the above reasons. Strongly suggest that you and your kids definitely do not play this game. Read all the many other 1 and 2 star reviews and then make your own mind up. After response from developer: If you’re not spending $2000, the only way to proceed in the game is by spending almost your entire life playing the game. The developers really don’t get it. The powerful alliances is exactly where the bullies are! Also, brilliant, notice how the other non-financial points on my review are ignored! They must be true!.Version: 4.14.1

Can’t trust this developerLike so many mobile games today, the ad shows something completely different to try to get you to download the game. In normal markets, this is called “bait and switch”, and it is illegal in many countries. If they lied in the ad, imagine what other unethical things they will do in the game to get you to pay. Evony has a long history of this. Their web ads for the web game pretended it was a sex game to get people to click. It was so nototrious that gaming press outlets ran stories about it..Version: 3.84.0

Another Chinese switch and baitThis is not a puzzle game. Another switch and bait. Ancient feeling graphics. Standard grinder kingdom building. Boring. Glitchy. DISHONEST. Re:developer response. Another lie. Your game screenshots AND video only show puzzles while the boring grind is actually 90% of the gameplay. Deceptive. Try again Sparky..Version: 4.25.1

Systemic Racism in GamingThe game has no civilizations from Africa. I’m tired of this. Deleted immediately.Version: 3.82.15

Poor poor. Did I mention poor Customer serviceThese people don’t know the meaning. You put dollars into this game and when they screw up and it happens far to often...glitches. They ignore you. Stay away. Do not put in money. Money Pit.Version: 3.87.8

Please don’t download this game or recommend to othersIve had a family member lose thousands to this shill of a game. It has gotten to the point where they ignore other family members in turn to play the game and are on it 24/7. The developers response to spending a lot of money is “it is so people who don’t have enough time to play can progress far. That is completely not true. I’ve watched them play sometimes and the people they “alliance with” are also big spenders who only play 24/7. Both my family member and they’re alliance use botted accounts to rapidly progress and I believe they're buying packages on BOTH accounts just to progress one. Not only this there are highly racist and homophobic players who have threatened others due to a MOBILE game. This is just really crazy. And while all this happens the developers don’t do anything to help or even fix. A small unpaid account, while fun to play will be destroyed instantly unless you have someone on the inside of the biggest clans. Events are a whole other thing. Bigger costs, more double up packages and more. Please, I highly recommend NOT to download this game as it has begun to ruin they’re life and I don’t think they’re realising it..Version: 4.53.1

Play at your own riskI am writing this review because today is my last day of playing this game. I have been playing this game almost a year now. I am a big spender to this game. Build my city and grow it fast. The good thing about the game is the puzzles as it was also the reason I played this in the first place. Other than that, it is depends on the people in your server. Yes, this is a war game but war have rules. During Server vs Server time, my server kills their own server players instead of enemy server’s. They also use the opportunity to steal your sub cities when you can’t bubble as you are fighting other server’s enemy. Not only that but in this game, I see the worst personalities of people and due to inflexibility of the game to move server, I am only given choice either to quit the game or continue with the madness. Think carefully whether you want to play and invest your time and money only to find out you are in a bad server with people that has no ethics or moral playing in your server..Version: 3.89.16

Same old, same oldIt’s an ok game it’s just more of the same thing. Build and collect and wait, and wait, and wait and then get destroyed by someone who loves spending tons of $$..Version: 3.82.11

Beware: Buggy app just caused significant loss of moneyEvony just cost me a lot of money and has potentially caused my server consisting of hundreds of other players to lose a tournament against another server because of their buggy app. I was facing off against another player during a biweekly “Server War.” I attacked my opponent and then tried to use a “truce agreement” (a bubble or dome plsced over your city to prevent others from being able to attack you). HOWEVER, Evony’s buggy app wouldn’t allow me to use a truce agreement. Because I couldn’t raise my “bubble,” my opponents were able to hit me and 1) killed all my troops, and worse 2) turned my server from being the winners of the Server War to being the losers. This issue has also happened to other players on my server. There has been widespread discussion of this and other issues. I’m posting my problem here because when I’ve used their ticketing system in the past to report issues, I’ve either gotten no response or very very late responses. It’s also well known that when issues like this happen, Evony will not properly reimburse players for their losses. And the problem with Evony not replacing reimbursing losses, you see, is that this is an incredibly expensive game to play. I have spent hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars $$$ on this game. EVONY: WILL YOU HELP ME THIS TIME? I EXPECT A FULL REIMBURSEMENT OF THE RESOURCES/SPEEDUPS USED SAVE MY TROOPS AND A POINTS READJUSTMENT FOR MY SERVER..Version: 4.26.2

2% Puzzles, 98% spending money to make a differenceAdvertising stating that this is puzzle solving raised my interest, however the truth of this that it’s simply a game where you combat with other players, forming alliances etc. interesting game but overall it’s falsely advertised with the few puzzles which drew in all the little kids who are virtually toxic in the zone chat, this needs moderation. Heavy game imbalances where players who level 20 plus run roughshod over lower level players, suggestion would be to put a level limit in for example a 5 level difference between opponents. Extremely heavy money based game. You have to use diamonds to retrieve your catapults instead of allow other healing mechanics, simply it is made for the player to spend loads of money in the game to be competitive. I cannot recommend this game at all. You can play with out spending as you can get a few diamonds through your monster kills and achievements but overall the amount of advertising and best buys now are overwhelming. It’s just not worth getting involved with. Just remember the game is PvP and you will need to be aware of that from the get go..Version: 4.31.1

Didn’t give me gemsI spent real money for 20k gems I never got them.Version: 4.38.4

Lame, not as shown, etc, etc.I saw the ads for this game when playing a different game-didn’t we all? Anyhow, I figured that the game would most likely be entirely different from how it was shown and a borderline scam. But I like reviewing games (especially less-than-perfect ones), so I figured WHY NOT. The first thing I noticed was that while the puzzles shown in the ads are (sort of) part of the gameplay, the quality-even on the highest graphics setting-is waaay worse than shown. The puzzles are also either way too easy, or a pain in the backside. There are flash games that are better. 5/10 for graphics (Worse than the ads) The *actual* gameplay (upgrading stuff, fighting, etc, etc) has (IMO) way too many different mechanics and gets super confusing. The voices for the NPCs are really creepy ngl; they seem like they are tts bots. 4/10 for gameplay. (Boring, confusing) And don’t get me started on how dang infuriating it is that this game wouldn’t mute the freaking volume! When I mute my sound, I expect to hear nothing, so why was I hearing (seemingly full-volume) game sounds??? 2/10 for audio. (Wouldn’t mute with Bluetooth headset, derpy NPC voices) Okay, now, the (second) elephant in the room: bot reviews. Yeah, it’s really obvious. Next to nobody uses their real name in App Store reviews, but all the bots do AND it’s always a first and last name AND the names are always properly capitalized. Admittedly, whatever AI writes the fake reviews is pretty well done, so props to whoever wrote that code. 1/10 for coolness level. (But 8/10 for coding skillz) Also: scamminess level. (Idc that that’s not a word.) Medium-High. It wasn’t too crazy, but did try to trick me with sneaky wording sometimes. Be on your guard. Too long, didn’t read: 5/10, lame, don’t waste your time. EDIT: ok, nvm, the sound not muting isn’t a problem with the game, it’s something else. The NPCs still sound like evil robots, so my sound rating stays..Version: 3.86.1

CUSTOMER SUPPORT IS TERRIBLEI have been playing this game for over a year, I enjoy it but customer support is terrible. A week ago they did an update which caused my game to crash unable to shield and everything got wiped. I spent over $100 on this game last week and all I requested was to be reimbursed the resources I lost and the resources and speed ups needed to heal my troops. They’ve done an update and fixed the issue but I have been contacting them for a week unable to participate in any events and they have done NOTHING! They take your money and don’t even fix things that are their fault to begin with it’s not right. Since writing this review they have closed my conversation as if I have never contacted them but I have screenshots. Absolutely disgusting.Version: 3.2.2

Don’t waste your money or timeThis isn’t just a pay to win game, but also a pay to control the server and all accounts on it, like changing other peoples profile names and such, and if your happy to spend enough money, this developer will happily let you interfere with other players accounts. Not only that the developers will let you set your own rules and punishments for people who break the unwritten rules which are again decided by the person who spends the most money, even setting rules that go against the games tutorial or daily activities, cheating and bots are rife, online bullying and harassment is unbelievably bad. The game is full of glitches and bugs, game breaking glitches and bugs. And what support there is meant to be, is non existent. The bottom line is, if you give this developer enough money they’ll let you do whatever you want, even if it contradicts the games stated rules..Version: 4.0

Rubbish cash grabIn case anyone is here via their ads and wants to know what this game is all about it is a garbage Civ rip-off MMO / RT strategy game, and nothing like it’s advertising. If you think you are here to do puzzles and save the guy from the lava, think again. That does exist, but is a small side quest/reward mission in terms of the actual game play. Actual gameplay is boring and confusing - but don’t worry they advertise in-App purchases to you every 3 seconds to help you along. You can also join a Clan, I joined one and was called the “n” word within 5 mins of chatting. So, yeah, overall just utter waste of time and life..Version: 4.60.0

Customer supportI had a really bad experience with customer support they weren’t understanding and they do not answer in reasonable time . Somewhat really disappointed for a game oriented on is community and the people that spend on it. I feel they really let us down. I would not recommand. I have played other games that are similar and this wasn’t an issue My player ID is PapiChummy.Version: 3.87.13

NOT as advertised - fraud?I got sucked in by adverts claiming that ‘this is the game with the pull the pin puzzles!’ - but no mention of having to endure a tortuous battle saga game that surrounds it. I have NO interest in playing that type of game. Once I’d followed the tutorial in order to get to the puzzles once, I was then left with no idea how to get back there and no interest in playing what is apparently the REAL game!!! Very disappointed. The advertisers obviously know that the puzzles are what people are interested in - or why focus the adverts on them? Why not offer a way to play “pull the pin” without the ridiculous role-play/battle nonsense? Now THAT I would endure ads or even pay for! As it is - I am NOT INTERESTED and will be deleting. REPLY TO DEVELOPERS RESPONSE: “Dear player. We have same content in the game as advertised.” - NO, you don’t! Otherwise why would you have so many reviews like mine?!?! “Please continue playing the game and have fun exploring it. If you continue to play and not give up, you will find it." - Errrrrm, no way!?!?! As I already said, the actual game as it stands has no interest for me, why on earth would I want to continue? Deleted..Version: 4.22.1

AwfulThis game is developed to get you addicted and spend money. It is designed to make it near impossible to have a useable account without spending hundreds of dollars per year. Customer service also don’t care about issues within the game or their players so long as they’re still making money. Every time there is an update lag or glitches lead to people losing everything on their account and customer service always refuse to help past a few low grade rewards that don’t make a difference. Bullies are also everywhere on this game and the developers and customer service defend their actions and leave them to bully players off the game. The only way you’ll ever be able to achieve everything is to spend thousands of dollars per month. Since the keep 40 release the developers have continued time and time again to make promises they don’t deliver on while widening the gap between very large spenders and all other players..Version: 4.36.3

BEWARE! Bullying and addicting!This game encourages bullying- some really bad characters on world chat including people encouraging people to off themselves etc. the worst of the internet and when this is reported, the game developers do nothing. Beware and make sure your kids do not come close to this game- as the featured 5 star review also suggests, it’s built in a way to be addictive and everything is hidden behind a pay wall- people have spent 100s of thousands and those game accounts become obsolete in a few months as there is new gear for which more $ is required - else the account becomes irrelevant. It is not a puzzle game but a strategy game built to make you keep coming back for more. It’s the worst of the gaming world in one place- BEWARE! Update: it’s even worse now. There is an ‘update’ which says in order to get this advantage in buffs please spend in the kings event- honestly the gap between free to play or medium spending to having crazy spending in the 100s of 1000s of dollars is too huge. And you need to spend so much to be relevant in the game or it’s just a monster hunting game with zero fun. Do yourself a favour and download some other game instead, your bank account and peace of mind will thank you..Version: 4.57.2

Customer support only make excuses and not liable for refundsThe game play is good and addictive. however the bugs in this game does not reflect the payment you paid for the in game packages. I am considering to take this game to the local authorities to protect consumer rights. When you play this game, the in app purchases enables you to grow due the items you choose to pay for. When bugs in the game makes you lose all the items you paid for and/or paying for the in game packages and not receiving them in your item box. then you are not receiving the goods and services you are paying for which is a good case for the local authorities to take on a million dollar company. Customer services will not help you get back what you have paid for but just make excuses. Play this game for free but Beware you have been warned, once you start paying money for in game purchases you are then at a risk of not getting what you paid for due to the problems in the game bugs that resets the screen you are on..Version: 3.86.5

Wish it was a actual gameHmm your ads say it’s the same huh? Wrong. It’s the exact opposite. Horrible, Time wasting, not fun..Version: 4.70.1

Not what the pictures suggestSo you start with a few puzzle games which quickly get boring then you get to what the game is actually about which is a war based game. It is very slow to start with and you have to go so slow which is super annoying. If you spend money you can get through the rubbish quickly but if you’re not paying you have a grind. The only way to succeed is through joining a big alliance. Then you can get decent rewards and increase your level to a stage where you can actually have some gameplay. But even then, there is always people who pay and you are no chance against them. They have stronger armies and you can’t compete. Overall, you can waste some of your time on this but if you aren’t bankrolled you aren’t going to reach the heights and after a while you just do the same thing over and over with little hope of anything new. You can’t win the prizes, you will lose if you try to battle and in the end the dollars win..Version: 4.43.0

Customer service jokeDon’t spend money on this game, customer service is a joke, when the game breaks they simply give the same response regardless of the issue. Occasionally in the game they offer double up tokens and some weeks ago it simply didn’t work. They identified the issue and gave two tokens, however I had used four, I have now been going backwards with the customer support team for weeks asking for the items I was meant to receive. The response they give is the same very time. The responses they give to these reviews are identical to the responses they give when there is an issue, they simply don’t care..Version: 4.35.1

False advertisementI hope the 0 stars shows, anyway this game was all about puzzles and yet they never discuss the entire clash of clans thing to where you gotta upgrade soldiers and stuff in order to unlock these puzzles, I have to get to basically town hall 31 in order to enjoy the puzzles and it’s hard considering the materials are in the million zone. Second the player base is just a joke, we have people dedicated to wipe new players out, people who judge others about activity on a mobile game, no offense but I like to touch grass now and then however people take it very seriously. The power system is a joke by itself because you need to gain power to gain materials in order to get 1 upgrade on your town hall getting 6 puzzles tops, the developers need to just make a puzzle game and it will sell wonderfully. The real reason many people downloaded this stupid game is to simply solve puzzles, the fact that this game uses false advertisement to get you to play is simply terrible on its own. Please whoever sends a Support person saying “ dear player “ give me a valid reason on why the game lied to everyone who has ever played it forcing them to play something completely different instead of a puzzle game and if you send an AI or normal response then like I said this game deserves 0 stars for the unreasonable prices on things you need to buy to have fun, the player toxic community, the false advertisement and etc.Version: 4.25.1

Not worth your timeIf you want to be bullied and enjoy wasting your time and building up so that a selected few can attack your city and plunder your keep then this game is for you. There is no rule other than the selected group rule. An anxiety provoking game! The server 684 has a group by the name of of United beauty UN1. This group attacks all the other players in the server and plunder their keep. This group’s members protect themselves and pick on the other players in the domain. Within one day my city was attacked 3 times by these members and I lost everything. This happene d every second day UNTILL I gave up and deleted the game altogether. If you want other players to become sacrificial lambs to this MAFIA group, this is your game. Prepare to be sacrificed and loose everything..Version: 3.89.14

PiranhaThis game is designed to exploit human vulnerabilities and monetize on them. The make it impossible to grow in the game if you don’t pay. They also don’t offer in between packages, you either spend 5$ or 99$, in order to get anything in between you have to buy multiple packets too. Once you have invested enough in this game you feel trapped as the game depends on you having on a protective bubble otherwise there are always players bigger than you that will set you back and recovering is only possible by spending more money. Boss monsters rarely drop what they advertise and any special event monster higher than lvl1 requires keep 32 or higher and over one million troops which require BILLIONS in resources to upgrade. A 99$ package only gives you 750million for perspective. Also if you pay for items you should be able to give them freely to other players but Evony doesn’t allow you to gift most things in the game. If you like wasting money then play this game and don’t look back otherwise there are healthier games out there that are better for your mental state not to mention your wallet. *UPDATE They just recently had a server wide black out for most of the day, on the last day of the most important day of server vs server war. Many lost everything and not one word of apology. Worst game ever I wish I never started, I pray for the day I get zeroed and don’t have the resources to rebuild my city..Version: 4.26.2

Why delete my last review foolsSo I wrote a review explaining my situation about how terrible the game is and how much customer support are terrible and liars and it’s been removed what can’t evony take it that my review was 100% true I won something 2 events ago and game glitched and restarted once I load game back up and it’s gone and they said I didn’t win it because they are money hungry I have spent a lot over the year of playing this and I won’t be spending anymore What I want to know is how did they delete my last review of the game or get it deleted didn’t like what I said sort yourselves out evony your game would be good if there wasn’t so many glitches and lies so Evony sort your game out and deal with your customer support maybe then people might give a positive review Response to your response Been in contact with customer support they are useless keep saying same thing over and over again customer support are the worse thing about game sort that out then maybe work on fixing your game and don’t tell me you care about your customers when all you care about is money I’m done spending on this game.Version: 4.48.1

Save yourselfDo yourself a favor and don’t download this game. I have been playing for about 27 months now, and am still an active player. That’s what this game is good at, getting you hooked through feelings of accomplishment whenever you upgrade a building and failing to realize you’re digging yourself deeper and deeper into the whole. This is a pay-to-play game, anyone who says otherwise is wrong. Yes, there are players who don’t spend money, but they aren’t actually playing the game. You’ll notice after each update to the game that the developers and company only care about making money through macro transactions and continuously widen the gap between players who spend thousands (yes thousands) of dollars and players who spend 5 or 10 dollars on the weekend. There are so many flaws left untouched, yet they keep adding new things for players to spend money on and further the gap. This gaming company also has the worst customer support I have ever experienced, and I have played a lot of games. The game quite literally steals money from you. They also make it their mission to keep as much information from you as possible on how things work in the game, that way when you make mistakes, you have to pay to correct them. Sooner or later, you’ll realize you’ve invested so much time and possibly money that you just got to keep going with it..Version: 4.50.0

Greedy game doesn’t fix glitchesThis game is just to get you to spend and spend and spend and spend. If you don’t feel like putting tens of thousands of dollars into a game I would suggest not starting this one, because without that money you won’t be able to compete very well. Also the game is riddled with glitches that their so called “support” does nothing to fix. Every attack against players or monsters lags when the counter reaches zero it sits there for at least 8 seconds and sometimes as much as 30. This allows others to take the monster you are trying to kill and the player you are attacking to ghost or port and if you are waiting for your troops to return so you can avoid an attack it sticks you as having a march out and you get hit. Plan on taking constant screenshots of everything you do just incase there is a glitch that costs you troops and resources because if you don’t have them support will just tell you that their records show nothing happened and if t Oooh do have them they will still say their records show it wasn’t an issue and if by some miracle they actually admit it was their fault the pay back is ludicrous and the only way to fix it is to spend more. All of this makes a game that would be fun unbelievably frustrating and exhausting. If I could give it zero stars I would..Version: 4.48.1

Game going in graveHi Team, I am not sure if your greedy management realise that they are sending this game in grave, with all this money orientations . Good for other rival game develops of yours. Good luck.Version: 4.62.1

Was fun until others ruined itI liked the game play and the fact that I can develop my cities, there is a lot to do. I put the game down and ended up deleting my account out of frustration because I invested a lot of time and a bit of money into the game to build my exp and the cities I owned. I logged on in the morning to find that an alliance of players took literally everything, My defence general I’d spent ages developing, my resources, my sub cities were crippled, my gold was laughable considering how much I had in the first place, my troops had been wiped out, I could go on… I liked to play alone with the goal of fighting bosses and develop my city. I’ve clearly wasted my time and feel disheartened as I was asked if I wanted my general back and that he was being “well fed”. I was asked to join their alliance…why would I do that after having my enjoyment ruined. I thought this was a fair game for both single and multiplayer, not a game to make you feel bullied and robbed..Version: 4.39.0

This game is bad and the developers should feel badAll we wanted is what’s on the advert not all the other rubbish gameplay attached to it..Version: 4.17.4

Fake adsThey make ads of puzzles but then when you download it, it’s a generic base grinding game (like those zombie apocalypse games or clash of clans)..Version: 4.24.2

App keeps crashingCan’t make it past loading screen on my iPad (iOS 12).Version: 4.58.1

Not fun if you want puzzles, or don’t like PvPThe ads promote the puzzles, and there are some to start but after about a week there are no more puzzles. The big downside of this game is that is really no way to not participate in the PvP aspects of the game. There are days where you must attack other players to gain points. If you are a minute late in renewing the truce agreement that prevents PvP then you will be attacked by other players. If you don’t like PvP this is not the game for you..Version: 3.83.2

The FUN stops the first time you get attacked.I was enjoying this game, building stuff and making an army, sending my units out to collect resources and attack bandits and other npc units. I spent mist of a day working my keep to level 6 and researching and upgrading support buildings. Then I was attacked and I lost some resources, which is fine, but I lost the army I had been amassing all day in one attack. No thanks. That’s just not fun. On top of that I noticed global chat saying support for this game was garbage.?and soooo many things pushing you towards micro transactions. But really, I wouldn’t have deleted it except for my entire army getting wiped out by a much much stronger player. That just makes it pay to win, pay to shield etc… Clash of Clans is way more rewarding, even if you never buy ANYTHING, you don’t lose your army when a bigger player attacks you. So, I gave one extra star for the fun I did have, but getting attacked and losing your ENTIRE ARMY is not fun at all. Plus, too much micromanaging, why not have an auto train so I don’t have to log in to collect my rss and build my army… having to constantly harvest and click to make troops becomes a chore instead of being fun… though I might have held out longer if my army hadn’t been demolished by a much stronger player..Version: 3.87.14

Ok but there are issuesIts a fun game to play. But the developers don’t care about the issues. The game glitches and you lose speed ups, you pay for packages and they dont give you the items but still happy to take your money..Version: 4.15.1

Really BAD customer service and mega expensive!!Do not download this app…. Not only a RIP OFF, ATROCIOUS CUSTOMER SERVICE TO BOOT! I’ve been BANNED due to customer service representatives of this game not understanding English diction! If you’re in the game you’ll understand what I mean. In laypersons terms while based in the states the customer service people are unable to not only read emails properly, they choose to BAN you and accuse you of utilising a 3rd party app to have multiple accounts running that you are not aware of!!! To the app creator: how dumb are your staff?? You can RUN at least TWO accounts per device!!!! Your employees clearly non Evony gamers which would explain the generic responses we get to our emails. It’s obvious the app creators are using cheap labour while asking ASTRONOMICAL costs for advancing your castle and troops! Get over yourselves. Your game is constantly glitching, you condone bullying and should use a better translating service for your game Nimrods !!!.Version: 4.59.0

Same as other reviews - customer service terribleSame as other reviews - it’s a bit of fun for a while. But it’s not very creative and lame in the end. Customer service is not just terrible - it is criminal. They take your money and just do not care. This game can be addictive and there are plenty of others getting hooked, so they don’t care about you. If you spend your money, you will lose it. Server glitches means you will be locked out at some point and you will be attacked and lose your stuff. All the five star reviews must be robots that never dealt with customer service. Have your fun and then get out..Version: 4.42.2

Not a puzzle game, obviously 😂Not really a puzzle game. Predominately a ‘war strategy’ game. Not sure why developers bother advertising these puzzle games, knowing that this is what people want, but then making them endure some naff war game to actually solve any puzzles. Like just make a puzzle game and stop wasting your own time and consumers time with this other weird pointless game that nobody wants 😂 it’s the same with other games such as gardenscapes, advertises one thing but then the actual game is nothing like the advert. I don’t get it, you clearly know how to make a game that people want, why would you not just make a game that is like the one you advertise and be taken so much more seriously as a developer rather than all these 1 star reviews slating you for being misleading and dishonest 😂 it’s like advertising solitaire, but then you download it and actually it’s age of the empires, and you get to play the occasional solitaire game between levels of age of empires 😂 deleted this immediately, if you want a game that is actually as advertised then download ‘pull the pin’ off iTunes, no messing round there that is a actual puzzle game, as described, probably much closer to what you were hoping to play after seeing the adverts for this game, without all the war strategy crap..Version: 4.26.2

Good game bad updatesWhy is it with every update the game gets worse and worse, the glitches are getting to the point it’s actually painful to play and ready to give up, two maintenances in a row today! It’s bad enough that you make the events more complicated than they need to be, you haven’t got a good set up for the chats as in a chat room for the R4’s and R5,and you censored the private chats but not the main chats?!? What is up with that?!? Seriously go get someone on your team to have a look at the set up in TopWar and do your market research better cause if you want your game to survive and actually have people stay and put money into this than you need to fix your issues and you have major issues!!.Version: 4.29.2

Absolutely disgusted in the morals of this developerWithout word or warning I have been blocked from accessing my account without it even being discussed with me as to why.. I have put money and a lot of time into this game and want my money spent on it back immediately. Do not under any circumstances download this game as they are frauds and cheats and steal players money at a moments whim. I will be joining others in a group action against this company and hopefully legal costs for them are so extreme they will think, before doing this to those players who have been loyal players for years. Shame on you and shame on Apple for supporting and carrying this app in their store. PS I never purchased the pink gems or used any outside vender to purchase packs. I will now also be making a claim to recover pack purchases from google..Version: 4.48.1

Awful customer support and will flat out stealThere was a glitch in the game while I was buying packages, never received the packages, but was still charged for them contacted their so called customer support only to be told after about a week and the payment being fully processed to contact apple for refund (not sure why I would contact 3rd party to receive a refund,)but I did as they suggest only to be told by apple that those items are not eligible for refund. After telling this to customer support and providing them with the receipts for the items that were paid for they told me that they have no record of the transaction (obviously since I didn’t receive the items) and they once again told me I need to go though apple. Long story short this game received payment for over $200USD worth of packages, did not provide the packages even when I told them if they can’t do a refund just give me the packages that I paid for. This is the definition of fraud taking payment for goods/services and not providing goods or services. I have photos of the receipts and all the correspondence between myself and their customer service representative that has been going on for over 45 days now and they still won’t provide any solution despite the fact that in less then 5 months I’ve spent over $5,000USD on this game. The game is fun however the company is crooked and is just wanting to take your money..Version: 3.89.23

Ads always lieSo it’s like that ad like “this game is actually what it is in the ads!” And I was like “finally a game like that to play!” And then you download it and it sucks and it is NOT what it is in the ads.Version: 4.25.1

WowThe game is great, when you can get on! Three lots of maintenance downtime in a week, lousy compensation, continuous crashes, and laggy slow servers. The game itself isn’t too bad, but when you have an issue, customer service give you the run around, and you end up with no answers! I’m seriously thinking of giving the game away. There is no joy in trying to play and constantly getting booted, or things taking forever to load. Get your act together evony! Lots of people spend good money on this game, only to be disappointed day after day. Instead of fixing the lag issues, you just create more servers to say your greedy selves, you don’t care about the players. Never in all my years of gaming have I had crash and lag issues like I do with this game, and the more servers you make, the worse it gets! Shame on you 😡😡😡😡.Version: 3.82.15

Worst game nowI used to enjoy the game and trying to be competitive. Now, I don't know how to describe it. Upgrading a building alone will cost you heaps. This game will no longer be fair and competitive, it's going to be a game for major players only and the rest just spectators waiting to be plundered and zeroed in.........another unhappy active player Really more upgrade! For a business point of view you will run out of players and people buying packages. There are still a lot of players struggling to reach full upgrade to level 30 and now your going to introduce higher levels. Who will play this game now, rich and other players who probably works under your payroll. Well good luck!.Version: 3.2.7

Glitchy and near unplayableThe user interface for this game is hard to deal with, the controls seem glitchy and the ads make the game look much better than it is. The first game I’ve ever deleted within hours of downloading.Version: 4.62.0

This game is too much based around spending moneyThis game is hard to play if you don’t want to spend any money.Version: 3.83.2

Really good but going downhillI really like playing this game, however it is becoming increasingly obvious the developers are only interested in getting as many people people as possible spending huge sums of money, as if you don’t do this it’s almost impossible to develop properly or win battles. Even if you do spend loads of money, you can loose everything in literally 1 second of a big player attacks you and gamers actually call this being zeroed. It’s gotten to the point now that experienced players are trying to form truces between alliances so that smaller players can actually survive for a period of time to give them some chance of getting a footing before having what they build smashed to bits in the blink of an eye. The game could be SO much better if the developers brought in a system of handicap so players of a similar level could freely battle but big spending high level players could not instantly destroy smaller players, but there is no sign of this happening. Real shame and will probably be this games downfall in the end..Version: 4.47.2

Nothing like it’s advertised!This is another game that pretends to be something else. I downloaded it to do these fun puzzles but the game is something completely different. You get five little puzzles a day which at one point just repeat themselves. They are fun but are now becoming boring. The rest of the game is totally a war community building project. I’m giving it three stars because this game is actually fun when you get in an alliance and know what you’re doing. I have only seen two puzzles like the ones they are advertising and they are only between the levels when you finally level up which is very very time-consuming. The learning curve on the game is very steep and they are always trying to get you to spend money but if you meet the right people online they can help you enjoy it. But don’t be fooled into thinking you’re going to get the game that they keep advertising.Version: 4.24.2

So much games like this and it’s not any betterIt’s funny because I stopped playing once it started.Version: 3.87.13

Evony not a strategy gameThis was a really entertaining game for a short while. While it’s fun building up your city and joining an alliance, you will quickly find out that Evony is not a really a strategy game. This game is a numbers game that pretends to be about strategy. For example, if you’re city is a level 10 it can easily be over powered by another opponent as long as they are a higher level than you. Unless you spend real money to purchase truce agreements your city remains vulnerable without a shield 24/7. This proves extremely frustrating especially when you spend money on packages that contain city clues. If you’re working on collecting items like this, it’s not worth it. If you activate a key it alerts the entire server so an opponent that is a higher level can come in and take your city that you worked hard to obtain. Unless you spend real money to level past them, there’s absolutely no strategy you can come up wit to win your resources back. It’s similar to s pyramid scheme than anything else. If you have lots of money to continue purchasing truce agreements, you’ll continue to get raided by opponents with a higher level than you. Good luck!!.Version: 3.84.3

Game isn’t bad but...First, they get you in: I got attacked by the puzzle solving, but turn out it is again an other battle game, don’t be mistaken. Anyway, once hoo hooked in cause you’ve already spend enough that you feel you need to play long enough to make it worthwhile, you start appreciating and make alliance. But when you start getting really into it, is when the disappointment grow: So many glitch and problem... 😣 Worst being the translation in the chat, works only when it want, and translation is so bad it generate a lot of miss understanding. (I know it’s not a chat game, but chat is key during battle and alliance attack, unfortunately!) Sometimes you buy/get something from the wheel of fortune or elsewhere but it doesn’t appear in your stuff, so you paid but don’t get what you paid for. It may appear the next day, or not... Your troups gets stuck while marching, my favourite, as you have to restart the game. Very convenient when you are attacking! So as I said, game isn’t bad at all but very frustrating that with so much players and money made, they don’t sort it out. On the positive, after my message I was contacted by Customer services and although they haven’t fixed it yet, at least it is goos to know they are trying 🤗.Version: 3.86.10

Very expensiveI have played the game for years since the very early servers. It was not too bad in the early days when although spending on the game gave you an advantage you could still compete by investing more time in the game. However the gap has grown ever wider in the last 2 years and is now impossible to compete without spending thousands. This is due to the constant new in game equipment released on a fortnightly basis that offers new upgrades and boosts if you purchase 5 x £99 packs. It is impossible to gain any of these new upgrades without spending this amount. The customer support has always been useless even in the early days but is even worse just lately and basically repeat your question when answering. Like I say I had played for a good few years and it was hard and disheartening to have to demolish years of time and effort before finally leaving the game as there was never a chance of competing..Version: 4.62.0

Fake GameAlways love having my time wasted with a fake game 😅 The game you watched in the preview is a mini game within a cheap game..Version: 4.69.3

The adds are wrongIt’s sucks what the hell.Version: 3.84.8

EnvoyWhy is it now that the downloaded games bear no resemblance to the adverts shown? Have downloaded and uninstalled about ten games recently, and this one is no different. Great marketing ploy for a poor game..Version: 4.46.0

Fake advertsAdvertised as a puzzle game, but in actual fact the puzzles are a very small part of it. It is actually a “build your kingdom” game like half the others out there. You get the usual click here to speed it up for a price type stuff, with the distant promise of another puzzle to solve. They are so few and far between that it is not worth playing if you came for the puzzles. I did not play long enough to reach all the harassment and pvp none sense others have complained about. I deleted it after it proved to be a squeeze cash for advancement type game that had nothing to do with the puzzles it was advertised as. Apple are seriously derelict in the duty of care to allow false advertising on this scale. It would seem that the 4.5 out of 5 score is also fake. The developer obviously pays for a massive amount of shill reviews to bump up the score as no one would ever download a game with 1.5 out of 5, which it where the real reviews would place it. Update: the developers now have the audacity to shove more adverts explaining how all other games that show fake gameplay are rubbish and theirs is actually representative of the game play. You can’t make this up! Another update after “Developer response”: This game has almost NOTHING to do with the adverts. To say otherwise is straight up LYING which they are well aware of. Stop giving cut and paste responses to all the 1-star reviews calling you out on your fake advertising..Version: 4.26.2

Servers full of botsThe only way to get ahead is to run bot farms. I have been trying to grow by farming and joining rallies but everywhere you turn it’s monster’s being taken or rrs spots full of automated accounts. Then you get alliance r5’s going off in world chat about who they are so good due to their bots supporting their massive growth. I have spent money (more then I should ) to of got where I am others have spent more a lot have spent less One of the worst offenders for bot farms is fba alliance on server 493. One of the main accounts launches a rally and all the bots join at the same time. It’s not one person jumping between acct it automatic. But like anything nothing will be done..Version: 4.49.1

Support is slowThey are very slow to respond to reports of players using racist, inappropriate or adult/mature remarks, comments and chatting on their chat system. They claim to have a system to investigate but allow the offending player to continue violating the rules while they “investigate” as opposed to lock their account while investigating. Do not let your children use this app until they can improve this process. UPDATE: it has been over a week since I reported several players using very racist, mature, and inappropriate language in the chat as well as engaged and behaviour that goes against the terms of service of the game yet the developers refuse to take action. I guess profits are more important to this developer than ethical action. NOT SAFE FOR CHILDREN.Version: 3.84.11

You know you’re a fake game when…Companies will make up quick response messages for complaints or concerns that they receive a lot of. So what does it say about this company when those is there common answer? “ Developer Response Mon We assure you, the content in our game matches our advertisements. Keep playing and exploring - there's a lot to discover. If you stop too soon, you might miss out on some exciting aspects of the game.” S C A M!.Version: 4.70.0

Evony has jumped the sharkBeen playing a long time and also coined a ton. The best aspect of this game is the alliance members and the things that happen around it when in a strong and competitive alliance. The issue though is the ever increasing divide between the pay to win and free to play players. Obviously it’s a business and pay to win will always have an advantage but the greed of the company seems to be accelerating that divide with no time for people to make up the distance with good old fashioned grinding. Even high, medium and low spenders have no chance of closing the distance from the whales. Even with this it could still be a fun and enjoyable game if it wasn’t for the bugs, glitches and poorly planned updates that seem to break the game. I refunded last months purchases via apple store but if I could refund all the money I ever spent I would. Avoid this game is my advice as the negatives outweigh the positives as time goes on.Version: 4.29.3

False AdvertisingUpdate: please see the completely tone deaf developer “response” to my complaint. Perfect example of their customer service. I’m keep level 32. I know what kind of puzzles upgrading offers. They are still nothing like the advertising. It’s just a bunch of lies. This game has no business in the Apple App Store. Top Games is just lying and cheating to get $$$. Not only are ads fake, the preview right here in the App Store is fake. You will NEVER see a single puzzle hat looks like the puzzles advertised. What you will see are the same 20 or so puzzles over and over and over. I can practically do them with my eyes closed now. That’s not the worst part of the game. It runs poorly, crashes and is constantly being updated to fix the previous update. If you think you will get help from customer service - good luck. I’m fairly sure the entire customer service department is one guy in a basement. 99% of the time you will just get an automated response and nothing more. WORST. CUSTOMER. SERVICE. EVER. Evony claims to have rules. That’s a joke. People cheat with little to no consequences. Big spenders rule over everyone else and just bully other players until the smaller players quit. It’s actually quite disturbing that Apple allows this game on their platform considering how poorly evony runs their business. Don’t download this game. Spend your hard earned money elsewhere..Version: 4.70.0

!!!DANGER!!! Do not purchaseThis app seriously messes up your phone. HUGE download when you first open it (very suspicious) Everything on my phone is slow ever since, even after deleting app..Version: 3.82.11

This app should come with a warning labelBe careful giving this app any of your money. They take their time fixing problems and just continue to pacify you with Emails.. still waiting to get what I paid for and it’s been over a week..Version: 4.50.1

Misleading AdsThe ads literally say that this is an actual puzzle where you need to save the king or something or solve and unlock new challenges but thats completely false. I had high expectations at first because the ads included that apparently the game wouldn't be a "totally complete different game" unlike other mobile games... but some things are too good to be true so obviously it's just an attention grabber for people to play their game. I mean its quite clear at first but the way they market their game is just.. like come on dude. I would really enjoy those types of puzzle games if it werent for game developers faking their ads ..Version: 4.64.1

I should have read the reviews firstWorst customer service I’ve ever experienced for a game. I should have read the reviews first before I spent my time and money on this game. Fun at first but something weird happened with my account. I spent some money in game to heal some troops to get my power level back up. When I logged in the next day my power dropped substantially with no reports of an attack on my keep. I thought it was weird but figured maybe I missed something? Maybe I didn’t bring my power back up to where I thought I did. So I spent some more money for resources to heal my troops again, this time bringing my power to over 1 billion. If you’ve played the game, you know that’s quite a bit. When I logged back in the next day (I only logged in to heal my troops and then I logged off for the day) my power level was back down under 1 billion. That’s when I realized something fishy was going on and I just spent a lot of money for those resources all for nothing. I contacted support and sent a screenshot of my power level and asked if they could somehow look back at my account activity and see what was going on…I haven’t heard from them since. They make plenty of money with this game so you would think their support team would be on top of something like this right? Wrong. They make plenty of money from this game so why help some random player who’s complaining about a glitch. Don’t waste your time or money and I hope you read these reviews before you download..Version: 4.28.1

Luck of the drawIf you get on a good server and find a good crew you'll have lots of fun. There are so many games just like this one though and this one does allow server bullies who power up huge and just wreck everyone else endlessly. Ruins the fun and unless you're willing to pay big money, there's nothing you can do about it. I'm waiting for the 1000 and first game like this, that forces big money players to move up into a likewise server so the free players don't lose their will to keep investing time to be fodder for the rich..Version: 3.82.10

NOT AS ADVERTISEDThe game is advertised like a pull the pin type game but the game play is nothing like that and in the adds they say “you know those adds that are nothing like the actual game” that is literally this game DO NOT DOWNLOAD.Version: 4.26.2

Terrible.This has got to be one of the most aggressive I’ve seen a game with micro transactions for the same cookie cutter world invasion and base systems I’ve seen a thousand times. Lost crusade looks better and runs better but it’s basically the same game minus the terrible lemmings puzzles that a child could have made in their sleep. Awful game. Terrible and greedy developers..Version: 4.18.1

Loopholes that only financially benefit the makerSo the game is based on rules that players are supposed to follow. Rule breakers can be judged as “kill on sight” by the king. However, some clever rule breakers exploit loopholes in the game to avoid judgement and keep breaking the rules. They can still use “truce” agreements and after illegally attacking other players, quickly bubble up and teleport to avoid the consequences. While lucrative for the rule breaker, the person attacked is left with the damage. Financial damage actually if thei either lost resources they paid for or have to spend money to recover from the illegal attack. Even worse, a player that feels safe when using a truce agreement to protect from attack, can still get illegally attacked by the rulebreaker on resource tiles. Makers of the game, until you fix this and extend the truce agreement to a players troops wherever they are, resource tiles, relics etc. so they can be fully protected, I have to consider your game fraudulent and I will complain to Apple and my credit card company. And while you’re at it, anyone designated “kill on sight” / kos by the king should not be able to enjoy protection from truce agreements or teleports. This is taking the fun out of the game if a few rotten apples can spoil the fun. Looking forward to your response, my next call will be with apple and my credit card company..Version: 4.22.0

If you like glitches and no developer supportA great game when it WORKS. If you can handle constant glitches, malfunctions and a game with zero support from the developers when things don’t work - this is a great game for you. If you like throwing money at a game to gamble if it’s actually going to work - this is a great game for you. If you like getting the same cut & paste response from support regardless what issue you raise - this is a great game for you. If you like lag which then crashes so you lose everything and can’t compete in a battlefield - this is a great game for you. If the developers / back end support actually handled issues properly and fixes things rather than constantly attempting to get more money out of the players - the game would be sensational and in some form competitive on all levels. It can be a great game with a great group of people but again depends if players are kept account for their behaviors etc..Version: 4.18.0

Evony stay awayThis game is horrible because the developers just want your money they do not care about the hackers in this game your account will be hacked your Facebook account will be hacked your info will not be safe......Version: 3.87.5

Read this before buying!There are many games advertised everywhere, and this one is no exception. It's advertised as a puzzle game, but in reality, it's a clash game. You should change your advertising to match the actual game more, and also change the images. However, there ARE minigames which are in ads, but they only occasionally appear while playing. The minigames are the puzzle you see in the ads. However, there could be other minigames unmentioned. Hopefully i'll try it out in a few weeks or so!.Version: 4.64.1

This is all fake.The ads are fake and I have played the game for a long time and no where do I see anything close to what is happening in the ads. The developer will probably respond saying no but cmon we all know it’s using bits for good reviews. Also if the developer responds: he is a liar and should not continue making this horrible fake game..Version: 3.83.2

ExtortionThis game by far has the worst customer support I have ever seen in my life. In order to advance further along you have to spend an ungodly amount of money to be able to compete in any event they put in front of you. It’s definitely a huge money grab. I recently had a lot of my “Resources and gems” removed from my account that you literally need to use to grow with and then a week later I had all of my high tier 14 troops removed from my account a week later. I contacted customer with my dilemma and they continue to fabric a story that I used stolen credit cards to purchase my in game packs. That is a lie and when I tried to put forth all my card statements aNd Apple Pay purchases they told me I had a “balance” I needed to pay off before my stuff would be returned. A balance of $8500. That is just blasphemy and out right extortion. I have tried contacted them several times to receive proof of this “stolen credit card” claim and they just ignore me and Then only respond with I must pay my balance in order to receive my removed items. I definitely do not recommend anyone to spend money or energy in this game for they will just rob you of your things and hold it ransom in order to make you pay ungodly amount of money to get it back. All I wanted was my things returned back to me and they refuse to answer any question I have accordingly nor provide any proof of their accusations. Be careful how you deal with this game. They are professional extortionists..Version: 4.48.1

DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS GAMEThe game has changed a lot in the last 18 months. It is now based purely around how much money you spend. And there are some who spend $50,000+++ a year! If you can’t spend that you won’t be able to compete. It is a complete lottery to see if you end up on a server that doesn’t have bullies or a server that is growing. Many servers are dominated by a handful of people and many of those are bullies. It takes a while to find that out by which time you are locked in and can’t change the server (area) you have to play on. All the functionality that the studio have released in the last year is around new ways for people to spend. The game play is almost always unstable during big events the result of which is wasted money and time. There are record numbers of people quitting the game and many big castles are up for sale as even those who have spent a lot of money have had enough. You have been warned! And ignore all the screenshots about the puzzles….they are a tiny part of it which no one plays!.Version: 4.54.2

This game is 100% pay to win. Don’t get suckered into itI started this game thinking it was a puzzle game. It’s not. The puzzle part of the game is less than 1% of makeup of the game itself. It’s a castle building PVP game that makes it super easy to get to level 20. But then each additional level exponentially costs more in game resources. For example. My level 30 keep requires 136days to complete. But there are daily packages that can help you buy speedups. So playing the game without money is possible if you don’t mind taking months to grow a single keep level. Meanwhile the game has server vs server battles. While it sounds fun, it’s super broken (I believe intentionally). I belong to server 1008. We were matched up with server 800 something. What does that mean? This server has several months head start. One alliance on that server has more troops and power than our entire server. That’s fair right! Many people on our server were zeroed (all our troops destroyed, costing months of time and resources). But that is what the game makers want. They want you to buy more resource packs to rebuild. It has been fun, I can’t deny that. But this current match up opened my eyes to the reality that this game allows you to enjoy it if you continue to pump hundreds of dollars into it to “pay to win”.Version: 4.23.5

Not as advertised !Your trailer is nothing like the game play. Why would you lie ? I hope you go bankrupt and become homeless..Version: 4.69.3

Fun, but ultimately frustrating.Like most others I downloaded it because of the puzzles, which are fun. But you immediately realize that the puzzles are only there to get you to download it. They’re janky. But the real game was pretty fun. Building up your city, choosing where to put resources and research into…but it has zero balance when it comes to the pvp aspect. My realm was actually pretty cool in the sense that the king and its alliance actively enforced a no-kill pact against people that changed their name from the default, and were in an alliance. Which worked well. It helped people to build up their power. But every week for THREE days there’s an event that rewards players for attacking others and for this you either bubble or get attacked. It’s actually not too bad, until you get annihilated by someone who pulled out the visa and is 20x your power. They absolutely need to do something about this because unless you pay you’ll never do well during this event. It is 100% a money grab. You either pay to be able to buy the bubble you need to protect yourself, or pay to be somewhat equal in power. Which is really tragic because the rest of it is a pretty well thought out and deep game. Uninstalled after 3 weeks..Version: 4.23.5

Low RSSI agree with HemiJGetMoney all the way! You spend all this money on the game and come SVS you’ve lost everything with basically no way to get your troops back without continuing to spend $. You get K28 and everything slows down building wise. At that point you are really in the middle. Your not strong enough to play SvS effectively, you can hit all the small keeps. That’s it. That’s not really that much fun for no rewards. So your caught in the middle. You have to spend large amounts of $ to grow any bigger, therefore most people stop playing. You choose to play for the long haul or not. It’s basically impossible to grow after that and have fun being competitive. If you join an alliance, which you must, they make it better but the ‘big cheeses’ dominate the game and that’s not fun either. The lack of RSS is stupid. And if you don’t continue to bubble 24/7 you will lose everything! They make it too expensive to do that for too long without playing it every-single day! For those of us “middle class” who have JOBS that demand attendance (how dare they) makes it virtually impossible to keep playing. If you aren’t going to give us RSS, atleast make LONGER bubble times easier to get and less expensive!.Version: 4.0.2

Good graphics, but not what I expected from the adsI downloaded this because the graphics and puzzles looked intriguing, but it turned out to be just another war/battle game, which isn’t my kind of thing. Yes, the pin puzzles do exist, but you have to spend most of the time doing irritating tasks to get to the few puzzles that exist. Also, maybe it’s just me, but choosing “American” culture and having all the NPCs call me “My Liege” is…disconcerting. Note to the marketing department: Your ad blitz is going to result in a big drop in your ratings. You have only yourselves to blame. Puzzle gamers and battle gamers are two very different groups with not a lot of overlap. You’re targeting puzzle gamers with ads that claim that this is a “real” puzzle game. Of course people are going to be angry when they download it and find that it’s the biggest bait-and-switch ever. I’d rather have a puzzle game with bad graphics than a battle game with good graphics, and I’m not alone. Edit: From the developer response, I don’t think they’re even really reading these reviews. I acknowledged there are puzzles in the game. The problem is that they lied when they said it’s a “real puzzle game”. It’s not. It’s a war game with the occasional puzzle. Why would I want to play a game I don’t enjoy at all when there are, in fact, “real puzzle games” out there?.Version: 4.26.2

Worse customer service in any game I have ever playedVery poor customer service , only interested in money going their way , no interest in sorting out glitches or replacing losses due to game glitches , they make it so hard to prove what you have lost or when that it’s just not worth the trouble ..Version: 3.5

Falsely advertisedI’ve seen this game advertised on a lot of different platforms and it’s pushed as “the real thing” as a lot of games falsely promote that they are primarily a puzzle-solving dungeon game which in the ads, laughably does not exist when you download. The biggest contenders are those mafia games, or especially that garden game that’s a reskinned candy crush color matching based game. Ironically, marketing team of this game has attempted to do the exact same thing but state publicly that they aren’t, when the harsh reality of it is that this is yet another empire/clash cheap mobile game that’s designed to take money from kids and the mechanics promoted in the advertisement are the secondary part of the game that’s soft locked behind paying for bases/buildings to upgrade. You’ll have around 10-20 minutes of gameplay before they start asking for your money to “skip through” as the game relies on P2P based progression. This is completely manipulative and reading through the reviews you’ll find many of the same complaints..Version: 4.20.2

Customer service is poor. Kind of scam in the way.The game platform has a lot of glitches. Gamer suffering big loss because of it as it is a paid game. Purchase package got double billing. Talk to customer service, always claim needs more investigate. No answer or resolution. Problem never solved! Rewards from spending not get delivered. Just a scam gamer’s money. Got double billing again today! I received a bill with three charge for two item I purchase on the same day. You use four different days records to make up that invoice charge? Come on! Based from your reply. The situation is even worse! I have been billed individually for those packs on the same day or the following days. Apple state that they don’t send invoice/billing until push though from your end. So who is responsible? Same issue happened in PayPal as well..Version: 3.86.12

Pay to playThis game used to be fun and now if you don’t pay to play it is pointless in even trying to start out. I’ve played for almost 4 years and every time I get within reach of being some what competitive the developer adds pay only content that is pointless to play if not having. I spent quite a bit on this game but obviously not enough. The newest update that is gonna be released is the last straw for me. Evony and top games are gonna see a mass exodus from their platforms over the money grabbing content. If you want to spend 1000s of dollars and still not be competitive then this is the game for you. F2p is non existent in this game unless you just want to socialize, but in reality who really wants to play a game where all you do is complain to your friends. This game will be off the market within a month due to poor customer service, lag, glitches ( that Evony creates but punishes players for). Above else read the Terms of Service before even deciding to play this game. If you break the terms expect to be punished. If Evony violates their own terms of service (which they have multiple times) nothing happens. I’ve met lot of great friends but now is the time to leave. Not one more $ from this player and I’m sure many more will follow..Version: 4.49.1

The ads are click bait also I responded to devThe game advertisements say that this is the only puzzle ad that isn’t fake but it’s not. The game advertises itself to only have levels but there are so many other stuff I didn’t know about and it is annoying because I just wanted to play the levels and I can’t because of all the random stuff I don’t care about. Besides it takes 45 minutes to load. Do not get the game, it is garbage and also pay 2 win! I know I keep ranting on and on but yeah it’s bad and also these graphics are horrible, why do you complain about ads always being fake when yours are, hypocritical! This is a response to developers, if the game was advertised to have everything else there is in the game then it would be fine and I just wouldn’t download it. But no, it shows you you only do levels and also it never mentions you can interact with other players in the ads. Also how did you even get 3.8 stars you deserve 1.2 MAX.Version: 4.29.2

Not happy at allRight so I had the game and was playing all good until lvl 23 or so mind you had to spend money to get there so got attacked several times and picked myself up and went on about it so I get the truce agreement and soon as it finished got attacked had enough of it and deleted the game advised my alliance about it and left the game get this 5 days after leaving had a bill for two items purchased that I did not make now I’m trying to dispute this and do not know how to contact developer as I thought this was a no subscription game what the hell man how do I stop this I can not keep going like this someone get back to me I have removed the app and still get a bill for a purchase I did not make not happy guys.Version: 3.89.19

Fraud -never installWorst game and its a paid game.dont install.Version: 3.82.11

The add is nothing but Lies … it’s a simulation gameOmg really developers you wanna msg me to say it’s the same as your add???? Your add shows nothing of the actual game only your mini games that are throughout your main game yet your advertising it as if it’s THE WHOLE GAME…. We both know it’s not like this at all your lieing to customers through your add then when people download it makes your download numbers look better…. Let’s see what the numbers are for download n delete!!!!! You wont do that cause you know I’m right and your using your mini game to fool people then they realise this n delete your bs life simulator game……They lie in the add it’s really a bs game with these mini games thrown in. Once you actually start to play it’s nowhere near like the add you don’t just go through levels killing things n getting gold that’s what they want you to think so you download just to find out it’s the same as every other game like it for example fishdom.Version: 4.24.2

Stuck in a disasterI’ve played this game for almost 2years now, since my last BoC I’d been in a bad customer service ticket with a one sided conversation because I wasn’t granted an autoheal once my alliance came out of the battlefield.. Yes I did stay to the end to grant an autoheal and I have sent ss proof in a customer support ticket that hasn’t been replied to in 3days. I wasn’t the only person who got stuck with this issue but I am one of the ones who hasn’t been responded to or helped, even fixed. Because of this I am beginning to think about giving up and quitting, I’ve been a fan for years and years but this is absolutely frustrating, and I’d like others to be aware and careful..Version: 3.0.3

BewareThis Game has too many glitches, bugs and their biggest events remain full of Lags and Issues where the game literally is unplayable for most people and the dev simply always chooses to ignore feedback and constantly releases features/pay to play modes that makes it almost impossible to sustain. The availability of features are not equal across all servers, at all. The game also is falsely advertised as a puzzle game, where it is simply a war game and is mostly a D measuring contest. And if their glitch cost you time effort and money. You better SS everything. if their glitch (error in price tag) made them lose money, you better expect to pay them all back..Version: 4.45.1

NOT AS ADVERTISEDIn the ad it was a puzzle game and that was not true, this game it a pile of burning trash!.Version: 4.26.2

Customer supportListen game is cool, customer support is slow to non existent, if you lose something good luck getting it replaced , their standard saying is best regards after driving a knife through your rib cage telling you that your imagining things as your stuff did not disappear or mess up. Event packages..... good luck getting the items after you buy and you actually did not get them lol , EVONY Customer service is a joke however the game is cool but yes it does MESS up regardless what they say. Why would I give you my account for retaliation.... it’s not as if you couldn’t figure it out anyway... your latest response to me is a total joke , I send you a pic stating I did not receive 9.99 event pack I purchased on Dec 1 , you wait until I purchase another Last night Dec 5th to answer , then answer and say you received your items at 11:38 gmt time 😂 time... complete JOKE of a customer support .... and still never address missing troops .... Don’t waste your time on this game if you do , eventually you will need customer support and you will get told your fault best regards evony ... that’s after days of no answer and they investigate the wrong thing on the wrong day at the wrong time 😂 Furthermore I have played this game for years now and spent money on it daily ... to be treated the way I have over 20k troops and a ten dollar event pack is unacceptable when I have spent thousands on this game , but I assure you I will not be spending anymore .......Version: 3.2.8

Don’t waste your time or moneyI play for the friends I have met in my alliance... although in the last 6 months one player has systematically singled out and bullied player after player until they quit so our server has turned in to a ghost town. This player will find out about your family members and send personalised mails attacking you, for example wishing sudden infant death syndrome on a new parent. If you talk in world chat he will tile hit your alliance for months and swear and degrade you all the while. Customer services do nothing about this bully, who has no alliance because there isn’t a single person on the server he hasn’t verbally attacked. Tickets are deleted and probably not even read. Add this constant bullying from a deranged man to the bubble glitches and bugs (that customer services will in no way even consider compensating for), the constant goal post changes that require vast amounts of money to compete against and you’ve got yourself a very expensive waste of time and money. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.Version: 3.81.2

Customer service is nonexistentThe game glitched and I lost 95% of my power that took me 5 months to build up. And customer service did nothing to replace them, they love to take your money but won’t look after there customer base. Shame on you Evony/ top games.Version: 4.72.0

Player BewareYes it’s fun and interactive. It’s also addictive! Developed to entice you to spend more and more. I’ve played for 12 months and watched my team mates spend thousands on this game including myself. The game glitches regularly. The latest glitch removed 5x what I spent from my bank account. I purchased 1 pack and received goods for 1 pack. I was billed for 5! Customer service is disgusting- and I am not expecting to receive my money back. They pretend they don’t understand your complaint though a look online shows this happened to many others. They know exactly what is going on. I would just avoid this one….it’s a trap..Version: 4.45.0

Developers are thievesFirst off I would like to say I love the game. I have been playing for over 3 years now and am part of one of the best teams on the game. We work hard at building our alliance and cities. As usual the more you spend the stronger you are but there ways to play that are fun for people who spend a lot, little or none at all. Until you get a message stating that you violated the terms and they steal your hard earned resources and many other things. I got this message today and found out many items have been stole from my account. And the term that was cited relates to use of third party services to run an account. AKA mining, AKA boting. I have never done this once. I know many that have. They stole about 5 months of savings from my storage of resources and do not have and will never have any proof of a third party service connected with my account, because there has never been one connected to it. The developers have gotten so greedy that it is pathetic. “It is our pleasure to bring to you another 11 days of ultimate ways for you to spend all your hard earned money on our never ending game that costs stupid amounts of money to be competitive!” I mean they word it to make you soooo excited to spend all you can on their crap! Then they steal it from you for no reason! If i continue playing this game, I will never spend another dime on it! You have been warned!.Version: 4.49.1

Be selective about your serverIf I could give them less than a single star I would. I’ve been on two server’s now, both with their fair share of egos and bullies. The second sever is worse because the bully is a huge coiner. 5.3B to be exact. Server rules are NAP, but they don’t apply to him, or his alliance. This game is becoming increasingly difficult to play without coining. So if you aren’t willing to drop 2k every 2 weeks, find a NAP server where the top players are a peaceful bunch, and want it to stay that way. Evony is nickel and diming everything in game. The good stuff in the alliance shops are now limited on quantity. The game is being catered to large coiners who will drop anything to get ahead. The rewards for svs, battlefield, aren’t worth the costs to your keep. Players drop a few hundred easily to prepare for chalons, and the payout is horrible. The discrepancy in game play is unreal, and only getting worse. Also, don’t bother sending a service ticket. They rarely answer, and they definitely do not care if there is a bully on the server. Which is sad, it’s a game, but there are real people behind the keyboard. They have feelings, and I’ve heard some horrible things that have happened because a player lost everything. I suppose the moral of the review is be extremely selective, or don’t bother..Version: 4.35.4

2.3It’s fun and alll but once you get past level 10 it’s impossible.Version: 4.36.1

💀Feel like the devs more effort into the ads than the actual game.Version: 4.39.0

Like the ad? Sadly not…Despite what they claimSo the game does have the puzzles to solve, but sadly is one of those games where you have to protect your city constantly from being prayed upon by higher level players. You have to upgrade a town (if the game was just that and the puzzles I would be in for the long haul) and collect resources whilst having an army that will never be able to defend your city and you will inevitably be left feeling, why me? Simply put you will be easy pray. They give you a protective bubble while you go through the trainer phase, but goodness knows what you have to do to keep that in place so you can just play a game in peace and not be constantly thinking you have to set an alarm to log back in and protect your city once again. So if you’re looking for just puzzles DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS GAME! Why pretend to be something it’s not. Read the other reviews before downloading, I wish I had.Version: 4.29.3

DO NOT DOWNLOADThis game is garbage I saw the ads and it said that there were no real puzzle games in the world and that there’s were, but when I downloaded it it gave me one puzzle and then it made me build buildings and level stuff up and when I kept playing, the second I restarted it it tried to make me spend money it’s all the same garbage as the other games just like this, the game is 🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮.Version: 4.26.2

Latest changes are badYou used to be able to get truce agreements from the alliance store. And tributes and VIP points. Now the tributes and VIP points are capped and no truce agreements. Game is no longer accessible for F2P Update … so now Truce Agreements are in the Alliance Store but only once a week. And they are removed from the weekly shopping spree which is no longer gems. Also, my server has a bot player which is against TOS but despite multiple reports from many players in the server, the player continues their activity especially during Ymirs. Customer service is unresponsive. Bot player still plays 🙄.Version: 4.56.1

Nice if it workedTakes forever to load.Version: 4.68.1

BruhImagine saying that you actually have the game in the ads to get money these guys tried to add a youtuber markiplyer and the quality isnt the same in the ads.Version: 4.24.2

Not as same as in the ADJust make a good simple puzzle game. You will get so many users . We just need a simple puzzle game . That’s why we downloaded it. It is not what we see in the ad. . In our busy life we don’t have a time to play full game just to get to that puzzle game as I am 35 years old and need something simple that I can play in 2-3 minutes everyday. This could be a awesome puzzle game but you made it so complicated for everyday user. If we really need to play that big building empire game , we could have played it on pc. Not on mobile small screen. Your puzzle game looks awesome in the ad . I repeat “WE NEED ONLY THAT PART” I am sure most of the users also agree with me . Why don’t you make that one? You are losing millions of user because of that. Anyways Uninstalling this one . thanks..Version: 3.86.10

Fun people, bad coding, & expensiveFirst: I love my alliance members. They are the reason I stay in the game. The game is absolutely full of bugs and bad coding that can come up at the worst possible moment. If you get what players call “red wifi” in the middle of a battle, you can lose EVERYTHING in the time it takes to reboot the app. If my alliance were to fall apart, I would probably bounce. Or would I? I am almost ashamed of how much money I have spent on this game. I kinda have to treat this like an investment now. If I were to leave… I cannot. I just cannot. At the barest minimum of time and effort, I would still maintain a force field/“bubble” at all times - to be exposed would mean getting attacked and having to walk away from obscene numbers of dollars of upgrades. The game is a very beautifully designed system of timers. Everything takes lots of time. There are always greater and greater goals that take longer and longer to achieve. The fastest way to bypass this is to pay real money. The developers will reply with something like, “There are lots of opportunities to play for free.” Sure, if you want to spend LITERALLY 18 months on a timer for higher level main city upgrades. Without exaggeration, there are world class players who are in the upper echelons who have spent enough money to buy a house. A literal house. So be careful of what you sign up for and commit to..Version: 4.41.0

Another Bullying GameIt’s another disappointing game where you enjoy building your game and then get destroyed by bullies with bigger cities that destroy what you’ve taken time to build. Creators should institute limits where you can only attack a city within the same rank so there is a chance for each to survive. Deleted!.Version: 3.86.12

Long time playerNever respond to questions never fix problems every time I log in I have a 560meg download patch every single log in cost me all my data. repeated in game messages sent not a single response negative or positive you think they would see money not being spent on the account no be able to work out why . If your to start a new account everything works perfect until the day you stop spending money. Then you start to have all these log in and bubble popping issue and zero responses to messages. Went from a great game to a complete Rort would not recommend to anyone until there response time is fixed.Version: 4.61.1

Server issues!!!!Brilliant game in my opinion very addictive. What I absolutely HATE about the game is the server issues. I can buy a pack with my own hard earned money an when I’m about to open it server issues kick in an I lose my stuff. Literally vanishes from my inventory. Happens with speed ups. Anything that you open an it disconnected while you where say bye bye to your purchase. Since the new update the game has been rubbish slow laggy not the experience I started out with. Was just literally participating in the battle of chalons a war against other servers when the whole game froze MID BATTLE only to get a message rather abruptly saying server is undergoing MAINTENANCE during a live battle. Are you kidding me people what is going on!! Not good enough Part 2:- Don’t know what the actual hell is going on with this game at the minute. It is literally UNPLAYABLE!!! Constantly getting booted out of the game to not be able to get back in for AGES the amount of money I’ve spent never mind EVERYONE else ye think the developers would have enough money to make the game flawless!! That’s a joke it’s SVS now and I’m locked out. Instead of releasing stupid packs fix the game first. Look after ye customer they will look after you. This carries on I’m deleting it.Version: 4.0.4

MisleadingI’ve been playing this game for over a year now and have managed to get up to level 30 (out of 40) without spending any money. The puzzles that you are shown in the adverts number 300 in total and so far I’ve played, and passed, 220 of them. Guess how many of those puzzles match the ones from the adverts, yep, that’s right, none of them are the advertised ones! That said, it’s not a terrible game but it does favour those that pay to play. As mentioned, I don’t pay and currently have power of 53 million while the top player on my server has over 11 billion in power. If you’re happy to plod along and build slowly then this is an enjoyable game but if you want to get there faster you’ll need to spend big, very big, we’re not talking hundreds, we’re talking thousands, hence the 3 star review. Also, you need to join a good alliance.Version: 4.47.2

Game is as good as the serverIt’s a pretty addictive game that (in essence) is very repetitive. Takes a lot of daily time and in the end gives you little joy. I currently have a fairly decent account but I am stuck on a server that I am not enjoying. Would be great if you could migrate servers. I am at the point that the game brings pleasure than pain so I am going to quit (unless I could join another server and meet new people). Evony really needs to think about providing an option to keep things fresh. Server mergers is not the solution as you get stuck with another bad server and you will have more people quitting. They should allow X number of transfers (power wise) to other servers rather than do a merger. Would be some much better. Servers can then compete for people to join them. Evony are not smart and don’t realise this would make them soooo much more money..Version: 4.58.7

EvonyGreat game and costly but customer support and the programming of this game makes it terrible. If your looking to start this game I strongly suggest to read the reviews and do your own research because it’s probably not worth your while at all. I see a lot of reviews how terrible customer support is and they are 100% correct. I have put quite a few tickets in and usually get a response in no less than 3 days. The game knowledge of customer support is way below standard. The programming glitches recently in the last two months has cost me millions in resources and all I get in return is about 10% compensation and the response from support turns it back on me as to be my fault which I can guarantee it isn’t as I’m seeing faults in the game you normally don’t see and I cannot explain why it does what it does as I’m not a programmer. I have spent a lot on this game already and I’m not spending another cent and will probably quit unless I’m compensated completely for the games errors / glitches. Profit before customers seems to be the companies motto. Do not download this game..Version: 4.15.3

Don’t play this game, its a trapThis game is a trap do not start playing it, save yourself thousands of dollars. I have been playing evony for over almost 2 years and have spent a lot of money on it. Evony customer service is horrible and the game is very unfair, if you want to be a top player you will have to spend over $50,000 or more. I have been debating with customer service for over 3 months for compensation because the game glitched on me during an Allstars tournament and I lost over $1000 worth of resources trying to overcome the glitches. I provided video evidence to support my complaint but they still denied my request without providing any evidence against it from their IT department. They sent me compensation that was equal to about $5 worth of game purchases and told me I should be happy with that, which was insulting. Even if you are willing to spend a lot of money it is still a bad investment because Evony does not care about their customers. I am a big player on my server and VIP 18 but they still do not care, so trust me even the coiners get screwed on this game. This is my warning to you, don’t start playing the game, if you do they will trick you into thinking you can be a top player but they are always adding new features that benefit major coiners and unless you spend a $1,200 or more every week you will always be behind and lose in the end..Version: 4.24.2

Game’s a dud. Potential to above avg is there.Concept of the game is good. However lacks customer service. Respond time is appalling. Potential of becoming a good mobile game is there. A few adjustments needed..Version: 4.47.2

UnplayableUPDATE: This game has become so bad that it is unplayable. Real support is non existent. Testing done in production environments. Failure to provide timely resolution to anything. Server reboots without warning. It is a waste of time and money. If there were negative stars I would give them. The only thing good is the players. Update: I have issued 7 tickets and no real attempts to address the problems have been made. Within 24 hours I was asked to tie my user id to my name and email account, which in some countries is a violation of privacy rights. The responses provided are not responses and are largely ineffective . The platform is very unstable and and cause significant real losses to those who have paid for in-game enhancements. I will not adjust this review until the ticket backlog has been meaningfully reviewed. I would also encourage those who have suffered losses to do the same. The negligence of the support team and defect rate in game is so high that the game developers should start over, or fairly compensate those who have suffered losses. Update 2 weeks and now have 13 unaddressed tickets relating to in game losses. All I have received is bot generated responses. These are sent daily around reset. At best I would would never spend a dime on the game and at worst not play it at all. I am only on now to await resolution to inform other potential players..Version: 4.15.5

Was good now turned way to greedyThere are no real grind-able ways to progress anymore. I’ve spent 1200 pound and was happy to, and now I see this game is just about paying for something rather than playing for something with literally everything you do. The yimr event this time around there are non of them around the map people are saying it’s like trying to find gold and they don’t even give that much the rewards you get for stuff are mediocre except the eggs and witches and golden goblins, sure at low level it’s a lot but after spending a little playing to progress is pointless. I literally would keep spending money because I love the aspect of the game but now it’s all just about spending money and not playing, this Helen event is an absolute joke why can’t it be play and do something for buffs instead of spend. If you are a new player do not spend a penny or leave. I get the game is here to make money but what is the point of a game where playing doesn’t have any effect. I can’t grind anything for SVS I have to pay for every occurrence that happens. Just be more generous with rewards from all bosses. Common monsters on the map hardly even serve a purpose there is no point in them. A lot of people would be more willing to put money in if it wasn’t as money grabbing surely that is better than a few rich people..Version: 4.28.1

Awful unethical addictive game with many bots and bulliesThe concept of building your troops and castle is not bad but the worst thing is that many strong players are complete and constant bullies who will destroy you and it takes months to rebuild. Of course there are constant offers to buy what you need to build snd/ or rebuild. Many players have spent thousands of dollars on this!!! Without a bubble for protection you get attacked and can be wiped out - this is expensive especially if life means you cannot keep checking in as there is no allowance for emergency or illness. Also is you lose internet when bubble needs renewing your can also be totally annihilated then. I reported regularly for over 6 months bots with screenshots and full details but they did nothing!!! Many players shared the distress of the bullying and high addiction to stay protected. And many wanted to leave but couldn’t - either because of the huge financial investment they’d made or the intensity of the addiction. Several players reported it ruining their marriages..Version: 4.38.2

Takes ages to loadWas stuck for a long time in the loading screen. It said it was checking for updates but it was taking way too long so I just deleted it..Version: 3.82.6

WORST CUSTOMER SUPPORT EVERI love the game and have been playing for around a year now. I’ve spent a few hundred dollars over that time to help grow my city and troops, a few weeks back I was locked out of my account and after 5 days of back and forth with customer support (it took them 4 days to reply) to get my account back I’ve lost over 55 million power, 100 million of each resource and of course the majority of my troops. Especially my t11’s, I’ve managed to grow back a little but I’m as weak as I was 6 months ago! I’ve asked to be reimbursed and sent them all my account details and screenshots of the attacks on my account whilst I was locked out as they asked. But nearly 2 weeks later and I’m still waiting to hear back from them, why I ask? They’ll take your money, but when it comes to compensation for their mistakes they don’t want to know you. It’s absolutely disgusting and I won’t be spending another cent on Evony, I hope most of you don’t either..Version: 3.86.12

DisappointedThe game at first is not what is previewed in the photos. The game requires a lot of time and for you to be spending each day playing it. Overall has a good system but the amount of work you put into the game can be taken away in a second by other players. Do not download unless you’re expecting to p2w. I don’t care if I get a comment back from the devs stating some bs comment. I believe this game is a waste of time and should be advertised as it really is not as a puzzle game. I’ve played for a month & I’ve logged in every day for the last month. I’ve only gotten to 1M in power until a KE event where someone decides to just target you and you lose all power within seconds. Then once your general dies you lose even more power. It’s ridiculous, I find this game as a dud! No good.Version: 4.24.2

Fun game but………Really fun game. Biggest problem is that even though it’s great to grind away and progress , the balance has now swung to a money earning game for the developers. Unless you spend thousands of dollars, you will never be strong. Worse still, if you request support for game glitches, which are frequent, the game developers seem not to care. There is also a culture if online bullying and harassment on some servers. Numerous complaints gain no support from the developers. Join Evony at your own peril. Newest update now requires a player to spend even more thousands of dollars to progress. You simply cannot keep up without spending. I’m quitting after 3 years. Cannot stand greed..Version: 4.50.0

Loading is not good at the moment, lots of issuesUsually love it, but so many issues.Version: 3.2.7

Misleading adsYour ads are MISLEADING!!! All you advertise is just the puzzle part of the game. When I downloaded the game and immediately realized this is totally NOT the puzzle game I want!! Shame on you!!.Version: 4.23.0

Just creative theftEvony is a very creative way that a company came up with to legally steal people’s money. If you buy a new TV from a store and they break it while bringing it up to the cashier, they go get you another TV and eat the loss. Here is how Evony would handle that: You buy a new TV and they break it while bringing it up to the cashier. The devs will offer you $100 back (if the TV cost let’s say $5,000) and tell you that if you would like you can buy another one while proceeding to load up your broken TV that cost you $4,900 after the ‘compensation’ without even batting an eye. They also won’t be able to wrap their heads around why you don’t want the broken TV and $100 back and just want what you paid for before they screwed up lol!!!! This in a nutshell is what Evony does on a daily basis to 99% of its customers..Version: 3.83.0

Not worth it. It’s a PHONE game.I started playing a bit over a year ago. Just some random game that seemed fun based on the advertisement. I lost most interest about 6 months in when I figured out it was pay to win. The only reason I’m still here is cause I spent a few hundred in the beginning. Idk what ppl (like max/hunter server 1268) see in this that’s worth spending literally thousands of dollars on every month or how they get the money (unless they’re Evony promoters getting paid to make ppl spend more.) I say play Xbox cause there’s real games there and a variety also much cheaper. Never once have I seen anything like the videos they use to promote this game. It is a war game and you only “win” if you spend thousands of dollars or thousands of hours joining the rallies of the ones spending thousands of dollars. Everyone makes alternate accounts each server to try and get enough resources to upgrade their main account. Example: from keep 33 to 34 is almost 2 billion of each resource and you also need other buildings to be upgraded to 33 costing another billion each resource. Also time… almost 600 days just for the keep another 160 days for just one of the buildings you need upgraded. There are no resource spots over 5 million. People try and stay awake for 2 days straight just to get their svs wings. My Xbox has hundreds of games I can play on a 72” tv in 4kHD. This is a phone game and not at all as advertised..Version: 4.71.3

This game is only for the richThe puzzle advertised in this game is only a minor part. The main part of this game is a PVP war game that will cost thousands per week if you want to be good at it. Bought packages are needed to improve your castle if you want to be useful and pack levels are level 1-5 with level 5 packages costing $174 here. Multiply packages are needed per day now to keep up. You can play with no money spent but your usefulness to alliances will be limited if your allowed to join one. The old server I played on was very supportive and everyone worked to grow as a server, but now after we were forced to merge with another server, we are constantly attacked by our own server. Bubble or burn is the policy now. The fun has died in this game but I will stay for the friends i have met..Version: 4.65.1

My reviewAbsolutely no and I mean no customer service. They have a cut and paste policy to their answers for your questions. That’s usually answered within 2-3 weeks and sometimes never. Make sure you take plenty of pics of your problems or queries as that’s their answer to everything. I like the game, however it’s a little repetitive but the only way to get anywhere is to spend. Ironically, Evony live by the creed they want to keep this a fair playing field for all!! You can play by not spending but be realistic as you will always be in the bottom of everything. Their server is woeful with constant drop outs and as they don’t test the new updates you can be assured of problems in game play once you have updated to latest..Version: 4.61.1

Greedy developers and worse costumer serviceFirst servers belongs to 1980 s or something around that , game is full of lag n glitch and gets worse on server war which people started thinking dev doing it on purpose to sell their packages. They forgot about free to play people and focused feeding big spenders and gap is quite huge now which even few of best players on this game left it , because some of them thinks THE ADVANTAGE THEY GET BY SPENDING ON GAME IS OS SOOO MUCH , can you imagine that ? And they always reply things like :oh whats your game ID so we can sort the issue or : you can find reply on other reviews that says WE DONT FORCE ANYONE TO SPEND IN GAME or : we have materials for free to get from activities it monster rallies or event , yea but it takes absolute for ever , like blood of ares , if you are free to play need to collect them for 2 years to ascend only 1 general , and its if u get lucky n find fragments . Opened 2 tickets few weeks ago to complaint about the server lag and a glitch that cause my power lose , and it worse when i found out my alliance member who was in same building with me when glitch happened got a response from costumer service few days later , why ? Because he spend n i don't spend , Honestly do your self a favour guys n stop playing if you are new n going to download the game. If i had option i would give 0 star to this game.Version: 4.39.0

Ruined But Fun…?I’m not being potentially selfish right now but I’ve been playing 4 a while now and you really need to ruin this game for paying to play? Other than that it’s great fun and tutorial led me to level by level and add more too. This game is amazing with twists and you really need to think before u do your action. I’m not reassuring you to change this game completely since basically this game is just a money maker. You didn’t have to ruin this perfectly fine game by paying to play and I’d rather lose my progress than spend money on mind thinking games… what a mind tricker this game is. I’m telling you guys before download, if you guys aren’t spoiled or have any money to spend than maybe this isn’t the best choice for yourself. This game needs some changes immediately, and please please make this game not so selfish to take ones player money. These moderators actually need to read our reviews and fix these problems before I delete it… losing one player isn’t bad. But risking others is worse. Also not to complain about bugs for free stuff you just need to think before you download because this is probably my first ever game to have so much additional in game-purchases. But fun. You guys developers have to fix things and make games funner and funnier….Version: 4.53.2

StupidWhat a stupid game have to have my tablet upright. So can’t use the stand.Version: 4.54.2

Fair Assessment; no bias!!! (Mobile Device User)The game is addicting and can help you to get through boring situations with ease. However if you want to be a stand out or at least formidable you’ll spend thousands. With that said, there are things in this game that they need to fix. 1) Lag 2) march speed button glitch around temples, buildings. It’s not visible once march starts or is off screen. 3) warning bell display glitch. Often red screen goes on longer then the scout or march. 4) the occasional inability to post battle reports in world chat. There are rallies from an unknown player not on any server competing yet being displayed in the watchtower bell area. 4) updates don’t change anything but events and sales packages. 5) they delay giving you consume rewards or achievement rewards and at times limited promotion rewards in order for you to spend more. At the same time, The same issues are always here. For example, you’ll receive teleport failures on an empty spot on the world map where you should normally be able to advance teleport to. With the amount of revenue this game receives you would think that you would fix these issues. And if you actually did youd make way more money in the long run. Keeping the glitches in order to motivate people to spend more due to a mistake or loss that occurred by no fault of their own is crooked imho. Thanks for hearing me out!!!.Version: 4.36.1

Not at all what is advertisedYou may be terrified to think that this is a puzzle game. Don’t be fooled, it’s just another castle/empires game, and a really bad one. Just move along and don’t even bother.Version: 4.22.1

Terrible - False advertisingI kept getting ads for this game. TONS of ads. After seeing the same ads week after week, I decided to try it out, because the game looked fun. -That game, being what appears to be a man trying to get gold, while avoiding lava and animals, etc. Pulling levers to make sure he gets to the gold, and avoids the hazards. I downloaded the game from the ad, and couldn’t even find that part of the game anywhere. I thought it was maybe just a small part of the game, and tried to “play” to get there. After a while of not knowing what I was doing, trying to find a point to the game, I gave up. There is nothing else shown in the ads, and I previously assumed that what I was shown was the main game. But the game in the ads is something I couldn’t even figure out how to do after some searching. Everything is super complicated, and therefore really disappointing. If this game isn’t about trying to get gold while trying not to fall on spikes, get covered in lava, or attacked by a big cat, then why is that all the ads show? I was tricked into downloading this game, and I’m not happy about it. Make the ads show the real game, not something completely different. I know I’m not the only one who downloaded this game, assuming it would be the game in the ads. I’d give 0 stars if possible..Version: 3.84.3

Worst customer service!!!I have sent them multiple emails re: different issues and have not received any response! I got billed twice buying a package and inly received 1x set of package goods. Their system glitched on the Undead Invasion and their idea of compensation is only 1/100th of what was needed to be spent to heal all the damages. This is by far the wooooorst customer service ever!!!!!!.Version: 4.15.5

Froze after 15 secondsFroze after first 15 seconds of play. Maybe my 6th generation iPad not powerful enough to play. Also, at early play realised it was not like the game in the advert that sucked me into getting..Version: 4.52.2

Game ok, service notCustomer service is a nightmare. They take days and days to get back to you and in the mean things meantime, your destroyed and money you used is wasted. They ban accounts without any proof of breaking terms and conditions. I got accused of selling resources! What a waste of time, which was a lot, and money, which was a lot also, as you need to spend to be slightly competitive. The game updates make the game increasingly expensive..Version: 3.5.3

If you enjoy dumping $ into a game THIS IS IT!The game is pretty unoriginal. Same as any other of the same model. Give you just enough to get started but leave you in a position where you NEED to buy packages in order to progress. Once you are past the protective status of the lower levels, prepare your self to be raided constantly by players of higher levels. There is nothing stopping a player any level higher than yourself from raping and pillaging your base. It is a game that lacks strategy and relies completely on the player purchasing packages to survive. The little battles that one does daily to earn some of what is found in the ‘in app purchases’ is never enough and is (IMO) set up to push you to spend $. Now of course, you are able to play without spending a cent; but be prepared to lose everything and not be able to compete for literally days while your troops heal meanwhile your equipment (such as catapults and the sort) requires obscene amounts of gems to repair so good luck if you don’t have gems. If you enjoy spending unlimited amounts of ca$h to level up and/or protect/attack then this IS the game for you..Version: 3.89.11

False adsFalse ads.Version: 3.82.8

Bullying harassment and job lossRecently a player got hold of another’s personal details including workplace name and told the whole server. There were a lot of complaints to developers to take action over this on the offending player, however only a 24 hour mute was given. Now there has been an email sent to that players manager as a result of those sensitive details being shared and this could result in them loosing their job. Evony developers refuse to take action over this harassment, as well as reports of cheating with others using bots on alt accounts. In both circumstances evony themselves have admitted that sharing others personal details without permission breaks their terms and agreements between the player, evony, Apple and google play, yet they did nothing to take action of this. Also that anyone cheating will be dealt with as they do not allow players to have alternative accounts or bots to cheat, and yet evony still haven’t enforced their own rules not those rules of agreement with Apple and google play. Are u developers scared to take action against these horrible players that bully harass and destroy people’s real lives?.Version: 4.70.0

Don’t believe the ads!The puzzles you see in the ads are a very small part of the game and the rest of it is very similar to other types of game like this. This one can be a bit buggy. Over-rated..Version: 4.31.1

Lags and bugsIf Evony would ever listen to the majority of its players and not their own wallets then the game has the potential to become great like it once was. Bugs are rife.. Lags cause hell and mayhem.. Will Evony react? Or will it yet again be a soft apology with a small, worthless pack that means nothing unless your keep 5. Iv been playing on and off since age 1… in that time Evony has cared less and less about their players. If Evony players died, Evony wouldn’t care as long as they get money. When will Evony take proper and correct action. When will there be a blanket survey to ask us.. the common gamers on our opinions. Even if you did would you even listen? This game has the potential to become amazing.. but your focus is on money and making as much as possible. Not on the enjoyment of players. Coiners are leaving.. where will that leave your player base.. if you don’t wake up soon you will have more, further, longer lasting spending strikes. Players can and will organise it. Listen to us and what we want to see, listen to how we can improve the game and help you with that.. your opening server after server treating players as a cash cow. In all honesty.. I’m just disappointed Evony. You wonder why players are leaving? Look at yourself and how you run the game..Version: 4.29.1

Not what they advertise….The cool pull-pin puzzle games they advertise, or the walking shooting game they advertise, and even the fact that they say “Don’t you get tired of games that advertise one thing but the game is completely different?” is ridiculous because that is exactly what these people do!!! These are not the puzzles you play in the game. The pull pin ones look way more fun. You can never get a hold of customer service, the game lags and glitches in crucial battle times resulting in the player losing resources that are not paid back by the Evony makers, the maps don’t populate quick enough so many times you are looking at a blank field until the slow server can catch up, the app updates sometimes lock you out of your game, if another player is being aggressive toward another player or threatening other players evony does nothing to help and just tells the player to call the cops. So the game is so-so but the developers need to use some of all that money they make off of a so-called “free” game and put it back into the game for the customers. You can play for free but you will get no where fast. Most players pay around $25-$50 a month. Some spend thousands of dollars on this game just so they can rule the server. This game growth is about how much money you spend, not how skilled you are at managing your own city..Version: 4.60.0

PAY to SURVIVEUnless you plan on spending $1,000s of dollars; you will NEVER be strong enough to get ahead in this game! There are many ways to spend your money. Most powerful items are ONLY available if you purchase packages. They have to keep merging severs because so many people quit after they realize they can’t afford to compete.Yes you can play for free, but you will never compete!.Version: 4.68.1

Game needs better customer serviceI had been and still am having trouble just accessing the game. Now I’m in trouble of loosing everything I earned in this game is about to be destroyed over this weekend all because noone has gotten my messages or has chosen to ignore my problem which is about simply being able to access the game . It loads and the gets to the very end with just a tiny bit to go but instead just keeps saying it is loading for hours at a time. Because I can’t get in the game I can’t email or get on to send the ticket stating that I have a major problem. I have not had any way to access the game o be able to file a complaint. The only access I am here but not able to share that I am having a major issue because I cant access the game to complain because that place you go to share your complaint is also being blocked so I have had to ask other places to even be able to let those who fix the game issues know I have a major one. I have no access to anything any part of the game and it won’t allow me to file a complaint. This is the most stupid thing I have ever seen and if I could I would sue to get all my money back because I am starting to hate the game but a friend of mine filed a complaint for me we will see if I get anything I’ve lost back and be able to have access to any options within the game because the problem is the game will not give me any access. Sad garbage madness it deserves a negative star.Version: 3.89.22

Needs more workIt’s an OK game design, but is let down by poor operational management. Glitches, lag and game crashes are at unacceptable levels, especially in a game that involves pvp where a couple of seconds delay can cause a player to get wiped out (and it is rarely a couple of seconds - usually requires a game restart). It’s always been pay-to-win but is rapidly turning into pay-to-play for anyone who wants more than the most basic play experience. They also seem to be developing a bad habit of taking money without delivering the promised package. Top Games needs to put less time/money into introducing new shiny stuff and more into improving the reliability of what they’ve already got..Version: 4.49.1

Fake ads, useless gameAnother scammer at work here.Version: 4.69.3

Fake ads, lame game, money grabbingIt’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. Yes, I hear you saying “be patient, it’s an unlockable mini-game within the main game.” But that’s just It. The puzzle game is an unlockable mini-game, and your advertisements literally lie and claim it is the main game. And the puzzles don’t look anything like the animated puzzles in the advertisements. Stop lying!.Version: 4.23.2

Don’t waste your timeThe game has some good aspects but unfortunately these are undone through the constant glitches, the lack of any support - customer support is non existent and the continual drive to add more and more servers which in turn increases the number of technical issues (I messaged customer support about one of their glitches over a month ago with zero response) Unless you’re prepared to spend many, many $$$ to even begin to be competitive then save yourself the grief and don’t start playing.Version: 4.47.2

Fun but no supportIf you like growing your city and the thrill of war then this game is for you. However, plan to spend some money ($10,000to $100k USD) if you want to actually compete otherwise expect to play for years and years or get crushed by much larger players. In addition, there are several frustrating glitches in the game that will cause you to lose a battle or wipe out your resources. Don’t expect customer service to reimburse you or even respond in any timely manner. In fact, don’t expect any customer service at all. To be transparent this is my main reason for the low rating. Timely manner definition to everyone is all relative and may vary. My example is 1 month and still no resolution to the server glitch that caused my problems. Customer service responded in a week and half after I wrote to them but only stated that the “developers” are looking into it, however no resolution or judgment for my situation has been addressed so far and I don’t expect in the near future for this to be resolved. Several members that I played with have quit this game in frustration due to Evony glitches and lack of support. Some members have spent in the range of thousands of dollars. Just know what you are getting into before investing time and money before you start playing. Happy hunting to all..Version: 4.36.1

Careful for the wifi lost fraudI was addictive to this game till the wifi lost signal “ate” my over 30,000 diamonds, or maybe more than that. It’s not new for me that diamonds disappeared while being used to upgrade something, happened so many times, I didn’t make screen shot and got no idea about the lost amount before, earlier today, I charged the diamonds with several 5000gems packages try to speed up sth, the big red no wifi signal showed up, my gems suddenly became insufficient, then I charged again, and made screen shots before I started to upgrade, poor me, they got me again, this time, as a big game fan who spends tons of money on them, this game really destroyed my interest. I’ll keep these two photos and wait for in game customer support to reply my complaints, if they still deny and show me that no records of consuming gems in my account, I’ll do what I do, it is my customer right, no one deserves to be treat and fooled like this..Version: 3.89.24

OkGame is great. Will definitely fill the nostalgic hole from the original. But unless you have a new device and credit card with a big limit you will struggle. Also support is the worst I have ever experienced!!.Version: 3.0.4

It’s all true…The 5 star reviews are awesome reviews from people who have loads of patience and a great gaming experience… The 1 star reviews I have also read are true, commonly known faults and customer service complaints and resolutions are frustrating. So if you are willing to pay some time and money into a game that has these pros and cons, you have to be patient and willing to loose money for a good experience with Evony The Kings Return - Napoleon. My experience is varied, I was not able to login to my main account for 2 weeks (lucky I have a great alliance whom protected me from svs and others). Once my main account was “fixed”, I started having login issues with my 2nd farm account (and continue to have till this day). Money was spent in both accounts, I cannot login to my farm account and find customer service frustrating and useless that I no longer bother with this account. Yes I’m still having fun with my main account but could all be better if customer service was better and the glitches were fixed asap (they are fixed way after the damages have occurred where they compensate far too little from what huge losses have been made). From here… customer service will probably ask me for my farm account details for a remedy, or delete this review? Watch this space >>>>>>>>.Version: 4.70.0

Amazing game! Questionable support.Let me start off by saying I have been playing this game for a few months. I love the ideas and principles of the game! Keeps you entertained for weeks on end and constantly has new events so that the content does not get old. However, when a problem arises, don’t expect support to be any help. I have had a problem where my general Hun Xin can not Star any gear of any quality for whatever reason. Over a week ago I contacted support to try and get the bug cleared up, and have been trying to get them to believe me since. The first support technician was going to check the logs to see what was going on, and that was on day 1 of the ticket. I am not currently on day 8 of the ticket, have sent screenshots, have downloaded the game and uninstalled it twice to try and fix any bugs, and can not get a response now from support. I wish they would have just told me a week ago to uninstall and not waste my time trying to fix the problem. Until they are able to hire additional service employees( if workload is high) and/or get better in the service department, I am going to have to take a hiatus from the game. I hope that they make a turnaround as this is one of the better games on the App Store if they would just put everything that had into it..Version: 3.84.3

In game charges multiply by 4Be wary of their In-Game charges for every 2nd time that I buy one set of gem package they have billed my account 4 times. I enjoy the game but not when it feels like you have a car payment... I mean really this is outright fraudulent thievery..Version: 3.87.12

AVOIDThis game is predatory and using false advertising to get people to download. If you want to make any progress you’ll need to spend thousands of real dollars to keep up or you will be annihilated. Sure you can play without spending money but once the server advances you will be left in the dust. You need to constantly pay for gems to keep a ‘bubble’ to protect yourself or someone will just come along and wipe out all your troops and take your resources. Higher levels literally takes millions of resources and hundreds of real days waiting for upgrades to finish. People in the chat are toxic and bullies. Customer service does not care. Seriously save yourself the trouble and avoid this garbage if I could give 0 stars I would..Version: 4.71.4

Issues with the game play and customer supportOne month on from the issue below and customer services still ignoring my requests to be sorted out 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️ total rip off this game is! DO NOT download Severe glitches mean that when you apply a shield to protect your castle (which cost 1000 gems, which in turn cost real life money) sometimes the shield does not work - resulting in other players “zeroing” my account and taking my hard earned and worked for epic sub cities - this has happened more than once and I am now leaving the game because I have reported this using the ticket system on line and no one can be bothered to reply - I spend a lot of money on this game - I will now spend it on another game instead I don’t mind losing battles or even losing epic cities that have again cost me Real money to obtain - what I mind is that I lose them through issues with the apps own coding and then customer support is non-existent -.Version: 4.32.1

Love/Hate RelationshipI played Evony for several years and enjoyed the gameplay as well as conversations with the online friends I made there. However I gave away my castle, quit playing a deleted the game a couple of years ago because I got sick and tired of spending money in the game (prob about $100 a month) to build my castle to max level and then as soon as I would do that, new levels would be released and there were plenty of people willing and able to spend the hundreds of dollars it would take to upgrade instantly to the new highest level. All of a sudden my powerful castle was useless. One of those new mega powerful castles would come wipe out everything I spent REAL MONEY to build in seconds. After having this happen to me enough times I quit spending money and the pace of building up to something powerful enough to use was so slow it became boring. BOTTOM LINE FOR THE DEVELOPERS: I would consider coming back to the game if ONE of the three things (or similar ideas) were implemented: 1- make safe servers for those of us who want a more casual game 2- Limit the damage a higher level castle can do to lower level castle based on a percentage or the size difference perhaps. So a level 50 or whatever level you guys are up to nowadays could only do the same percentage of damage to a level 10’s power as it could to another level 50. 3- Make ALL fighting only during scheduled wars so smaller castles can reserve their bubble shields for when they know they need to use them..Version: 4.47.2

Fun if you like glitchesI have been playing this game for almost 6 months. When I first started playing it was amazingly fun and addictive however, since the very first SvS (server vs server) war the matchups have been ridiculous. When you put a server that has only been around for less than 4 months at the time against a server that is almost 2yrs old that is the fastest way to kill a game. I am a spender but because of the uneven matchups I have cut my spending down to less than a quarter of what I would be willing to spend on a game that actually gives you a fair chance. Every SvS is the same the designers/mods pair new servers up against servers that are years older and more advanced. This is not how you get spenders to spend money. So that’s the uneven pairings rant. On to the glitches! The glitches are bad!!! Every time they release a new update the game won’t load properly for days. You send them messages/mails and you get no response for days. In between updates the game will load intermittently and then they put out another update (always the day before either a Kill Event/KE or SvS) and that means you come back in to a burned out shell of a castle unless you spend over 100k gems for a 7 day shield and put it on the day before. It’s ridiculous and short sighted. Unless you like glitches and wasting your time and hard earned money DO NOT download this game!!.Version: 4.30.1

“It’s like in the ads”That phrase can be misleading, only the puzzle portion of the game is shown in the ads and the in game version is down right horrible with what seems like 240p sprites, the game is obnoxiously crowded which makes it really hard to understand I only played this game for about a minute and I was bored if you feel that is way to quick to judge the game then don’t listen to this review. And also game developers. Stop with the abundance of ads, I get it you want us to play the game, but all your advertisements are just making us hate it more, thank you for your time. (Edit) wow an automated reply in the “flesh”, such a embarrassment.Version: 4.23.1
