Your Enjoyment is Inevitable (Edit: New Update)

Who every develops and takes care of this game, round of applause for you. This game is one the best strategy based games I have experienced. With the range of troops, Tribes, difficulties and play-styles this will keep you entertained for weeks on end. Thank you and keep up the good work. I have enjoyed this game so much I actually bought tribes and I usually never spend money on apps.

REVIEW ON UPDATE: I’ve played this game for quite a some time, since high school and I come back time to time and it was always fun. I’m looking at other reviews and they seem to hate the new update but I love it. The bridges and ranges on the new ships are nice as a scout ship is a nice touch, them giant ships do a little to much damage, I don’t like that you removed whales… but besides that the new ships are nice, it just seems like the “custom house” and “Elyrion whales” where the biggest reason people where upset, the ships are actually better people will get use to them. The roads being 3 stars now is irritating because you need to build so many, but maybe they were undervalued, removing the whales for elyrion should give them a equal replacement. And that one review had a good idea to have options for the market or custom houses. My review will go to 4 stars until some replacement is made for the whales or if you add a new troop or map size

Great game, some room for improvement

Firstly, let me just say that I can’t wait for the PC version of this. You can take my ten dollars for that. Anyways, back to the mobile version. It’s really good, but as of now, there is a lot that could be added since really the only way to win is to take over everything and that gets repetitive after a while. A diplomacy system of some sort would really help in that arena. Second, I keep getting the Luxidoor in my game even though I haven’t bought them. Another thing I don’t like (I don’t know if this is a bug or not) is that you can upgrade a city, choose to get a giant, and if your city is being invaded it will simply push the invading unit out of the way. It’s very annoying when the AI does this constantly. Also, I think it would provide more variety for those who don’t want to buy tribes if you included Kickoo in the free tribes, because it starts at the base level of the tech tree as well.

Now, onto some suggestions. Perhaps a separate branch of the tech tree for diplomacy would definitely provide more depth. Another thing to add could be ‘dissent’ in recently taken over cities. It would impair the production and max troops of that city over time, and eventually lead to rebellion. This would make it harder to win by simply killing everything, because it would make it necessary to secure captured cities before moving on to the next. Finally, it would be nice to have an upgraded version of the Archer, maybe a Crossbowman?

Great game! Only one suggestion

This game is amazing, and if you are looking for a strategy game with great graphics and online matches this is the game for you. One complaint I do have is about the recent need to luxidor. While I do agree luxidor was unbalanced, it is now one of the worst tribes in the game. It now only makes three stars instead of four and this changed it a lot. It takes usually until you find another village or ruin before you can start getting economy going and this sets it back majorly especially considering you have to buy the tech which costs at least five stars. Luxidor is the most expensive tribe and it is honestly a disappointment of a once great tribe. Some suggestions I have to fix this are maybe giving luxidor a starting amount of stars of 7 instead of five. This would help to get early economy going quickly and would make it unique as it would be the only tribe to start with seven stars. Another thing if you don’t like starting with seven stars is increasing the amount of animals or fruit that spawn around the luxidor. This could also help economy to get going and would make it so instead of having to buy two techs to upgrade your capitol to only one. Otherwise this game is great and definitely would recommend playing. Thanks for reading!
