Great motivator!

Gives me that extra incentive I need to get out and go for a jog or a walk. The game mechanic is fun and when other players steal my castles it just makes me want to get back out there and take them back! :-)

I work hard almost every day to run/walk to capture castles so I can grow faster, but there are cheaters in my neighbourhood who capture the castles back literally within a few minutes of me ending my run, and there is still no report function! I am giving up now because its so infuriating and disappointing to try. I have seen so many other comments about cheaters in the reddit for Run an Empire, its such a shame the developers still haven’t put any effort into this.
It’s a great concept and have loved it for over a year now, but there are ALWAYS glitches. Developers are always changing the rules and coming up with new ideas but hardly ever fix the basic problems. It seems like they don’t listen to any feedback. Also, it started out pretty much free/could play for free (just with ads), but so much of it is becoming monetised. I don’t mind supporting a small startup or new app, in fact I quite happily do, but its a shame when the core concepts of the game are monetised and becomes cheap.
Love it but its not worth it to spend my time/money on here anymore. Developers - please listen to your devoted fans’ feedback, and come up with a way to report cheaters! It ruins the whole thing for the rest of us

Developer Response ,

Hi, thanks for your review. Players using transport will not receive any rewards for their run and we are working on better cheat detection for players using other means.
We are a small team, however we try out best to hear all player feedback to help make improvements to the game. We appreciate you letting us know your thoughts. If you are experiencing bugs or have any questions, you can contact us via we'd love to get these sorted for you. Thank you.

Strange glitch

I love the game. It’s great for getting people outside and to try and run as far as possible but I have come across a glitch that won’t let me run. When I click the run button I go outside and we’ll run but when I end my run it freezes and I don’t get the in game credits from the hex’s I ran. It’s really annoying and ruins the game. And since I can’t unlock hex’s i don’t have enough space for my buildings. Please fix this issue as it is annoying and stopping me from playing. Until they fix this I can’t play the game. It was a great game before this happened
