Like others say, yes. It’s designed to get you to spend money. I have never spent a dime on this game. In castle 9 and NEVER EVER lose 10 straight lol if I do it’s because I got matched with someone who had a deck which was effective against the deck I was using. I said the same thing before conspiracy conspiracy they want you to lose lol I win even when placed against level 11 and I’m a 10. Just got to level 10... game is awesome. Love strategy games like this. You don’t need to spend any money. Only thing spending money does is upgrade cards faster which there is no point of doing early because you will still lose with upgraded cards since you didn’t spend the time to get good at the game and upgrade them naturally. I’ve been playing for over a year now. At least 5 mins every day embarrassingly but I play while I work.. again, money buys gems. Gems buy chests. Chests give cards and gold. You get free chests thus free gold and gems literally being impatient is the only explanation for why those who’ve spent money did so. It’s not a game you just download and end up in castle 9 in two days. Regardless how much you spend
This was a game a downloaded to help me advance in a different app but then I got stuck playing this because it’s fun. That is until you have the biggest lose streak. I feel like your level doesn’t matter at all in the game, I had level 5’s beating me at a level 8 but at the same time, if I go against level 11’s I get murdered as well. It’s like the game gives you a good hand, starts you off with your low energy cards and gradually moves you into your heavy hitters, and then the next rounds have all your high energy cards at the beginning that you can’t play until the mana builds. Also, I’m almost certain that a couple of times, my opponent plays more than 6 cards each being 7 or more energy which considering the time it takes to load, would be impossible even with the card that lowers the mana cost by two. One last thing before I delete the game, I had one of the offers with the gems that if I spent like 600ish gems, I’d get a reward that replenishes the gems and gives me cards. Every 100 gems I spent was supposed to give me 200 extra gems towards the reward, so I spent 200 gems meaning I should’ve had another 400 tacked on to that, (these aren’t exact numbers but I did the math before doing the deal). Well, somehow I was still short 20-50 gems? Which means I lost practically all of them and didn’t get that chest with the big reward to refill my gems and get brand new cards. Safe yourself the heartache and rage and find a better game.
Be prepared to be frustrated.
When I began playing I was overjoyed. Simple game to learn, fun, and i was not doing horrible. Then in arrived at castle 3. I started seeing troops i had not yet even begun to deal with. Then more troops i had not been privileged to pick up in the earlier castles. Now after countless hours playing i have realized that the matching system pretty much has decided who will win from the start. The card generator at the bottom seems to have no real random structure. Even if you have one large gem card you will somehow end up only having a hand of 5-6- or higher gem cards to play when you can even use that many at the time. Meanwhile your opponent has been able to somehow deploy numerous troops while you have to wait. By the time you get enough open and available gems, your opponent is now throwing their big guns at you since you had no choice but to wait. Within seconds you are overwhelmed and the match is over.
I have lost more than i have won, games i should have been good on but then im looking at a hand of high gem cards when i only keep a few. So random my sweet tookis! Be prepared to e frustrated and ready to pull game off your device. Its fun for a bit, but now its just stupid annoying.
I will say that there is a good sense of strategy. And learning that in the beginning is fun. But past that... well ... yeah. Its just a clown shoe of a game.
You know, I love this game a lot and have worked really hard to get where I am in trophies and the one thing I loved about this game when I started playing it was the graphics and now it's complete garbage I feel like were playing on a old school pc module. I probably won't play it for a while maybe check on it but come on guys really, all the Update said was you can now speed up your replays....?? Seriously messed up u messed with the graphics and now I'm severely disappointed in this game I'm a leader of a clan and the way you guys changed the gameplay makes it terrible I mean it plays a lot slower and I just can't believe you guys would do this, step it up guys I mean this is just ridiculous. You can't imagine how sad and disappointed I am in this latest update
Update: really hate how you guys are trying to include new things into the game the tournament is cool and all but it cost gems to get in and the funny thing is in the grand tournament it cost ten gems to get in and 325 gems if you lose and want to use a continue!!!????? I've been playing clash Royale way more then this game. I started out on this game and now play clash Royale and have a clan and it's fun I like it. You guys need to stop trying to make people buy things if we wanted to buy it we would. Deals are great but seriously u add a tournament and it cost more than it's worth and now I just hate this game and where you guys are heading with it. Step it up
Gamers wake up
By Not in the 1%
wake up gamers stop spending money on games that are rigged this game is rigged so bad that it doesn’t matter what you got in your deck the server is looking in your deck all the time you can’t see the opponents deck but the server is always monitoring your deck I was getting hit with a lot of mud element fire element skull king dragons you know high end cards so I decided to try and flood the lanes with trash went to all two threes fours with one or two sixes The computer immediately matched me with players with the same cards so stop wasting your money on this game it is so rigged you can’t even change your deck and get one turn in because the server is looking in your deck all the time The top 200 players in this game all have 5500 to over 6000 trophies if you’re willing to spend 500 or $1000 maybe you can be a top player is it worth it that’s the only way you’ll ever win in this game I made it to Castle seven and have not been allowed to advance for over a month it doesn’t matter what you put in your deck I’ve lost over 600 trophies in a row multiple times the closest I ever got to Castle eight was 2700 trophies you need 2800 to get to castle eight you see these reviews from players who say I only play five minutes a day I never lose 30 games in a row I made it to castle nine I never spent a dime that’s BS that’s because they’ve spent $500-$1000 an are in the top 200 players with 5500+ trophies
Designed to Make You Lose
Before I quit this game I wanted to be sure to add to the chorus of unhappy players who have found the game programmed to make you lose. It's rigged to cheat. It's a fun & addictive game with cool graphics, but one that cheats you. You select monsters/weapons to defend your wall and crush the opponent's castle wall. You can win games, but the game is programmed to pit you against players whose unique selection of monsters will either beat you (often the opponents are at higher levels) or against whom you can't defend against because the game manipulates which monsters are available for you to play in the card draw. It seems to make you lose more when you're close to opening a reward chest at a higher level. It makes you lose enough so you're pushed down a level and have to open a chest or fill a slot at a lower level with lesser prizes. I once lost 12 of 13 games after having reached castle 7 & over 2000 points. It's clever psychologically. Of course spending $ will help you buy or improve monsters or buy chests, etc. The chests often provide crap cards of little use. I've written very few reviews, but this game makes me angry/frustrated enough to write one. I do hope the developers adjust the gameplay. I'd give it 5 stars for the game, but the cheap manipulation of gameplay reduces it to 2 or less. I hope to find a similar game that doesn't screw me.
Developers a ridiculous
This game has great potential! The character design is good, with characters just like Supercell's games! Haha total ripoff. The con list is bigger than the pros in this game. The match making is terrible because you get gamers dumping trophies in higher castles to fight gamers in lower castles. This definitely makes the game not fun! I am okay with losing, but when I start a match and have no chance to win from the very start, not fun. Of course you could spend money on the game and become really good right away, it I will save my money for games like The Elder Scrolls Online, or better yet World of Warcraft!!
I have been playing this game for about two weeks. I got to the Demon Castle twice, but both times I fell very quickly from my spot. This is because one gets matched up against more advanced players, which is ridiculous, I mean how is a level 5 supposed to beat a level 7? Skill doesn’t come into play at all in this game so it’s not that. It really comes to the luck of your card order, which one game may really favor you and then the next three games it heavily favors your opponent. This leads me to think the game is rigged by the developers in such a way to make someone buy things in moments of rage. Because of this I will not play. I am not above buying things on games, but only when I feel the developers actually care about their product and those using it.
A great game, but could use some improvements
By 19843882/real person
I really like this game, it is really fun and enjoyable, but I do have a few suggestions. For one could you put the giant growth spell a little lower in the castles, like in castle 4 or 5 maybe? I think it is one of the coolest spells to play around with, and that you should be able to unlock it a little earlier. I also find that the game does see your deck and it’s weaknesses and pairs you against decks that can destroy you (of course I could be wrong about that, but it feels like that especially when I started switching between decks and started winning more than I did with one deck). I do find this game fun though all in all, a very unique game from others, the main thing being there are a lot of things with no limits. For example, the giant growth spell makes your strongest troop on the battle field grow in hp, attack, and size (size being purely visual) unlike in most games this does not have a limit. ( as long as it doesn’t die and the game doesn’t end it can keep getting stronger if you keep giving it giant growth spells) And this also includes the Spectre as well as Phoenix, who also have similar abilities. This is a great game that I recommend you at least try.
Stay away from this game
One of those addictive games. I started playing yesterday but after you are killing your opponents, they start pairing you with players two levels up with better and more upgraded cards. Doesn’t matter how much your strategy was spot on, you have no chance. They’re only trying to get you to spend more and more money at every level. Stay away, it is a money trap. You will always be bumped up two levels.
Week 1 update. If you can get used to losing this is still a fun game so I gave it 2 stars. On average I win half the games. When you’re on a roll, I am matched with 2-3 level higher players with highly upgrade or cards at a higher status(legendary).
Be ready to lose a lot of games where you never had a chance.
Week 3 - I’m still playing it. Gave it one more star because I’m obviously enjoying the game. 50-60% win percentage with about $5 spent so far. If you lose two in a row, change your deck with a different strategy:
I’m done playing now. As I learn more about the game. There’s no desire to improve game play. You’re only rewarded if you spend money to upgrade. They should keep players in a certain range of rankings and upgrades. I’ve actually had matches four levels above with cards I’ve never seen. Ok so this is a 5 week review and had fun the first few days and then a second bump when I spent some money.
Honest Review 5/5
I’ve read quite a bit of the reviews on this app. Disclosure: I do in fact play Clash Royale still as it’s one of my favorite mobile games on the market. With this being said, Castle Crush is very similar, it’s your choice to think if it copyright infringement or not, either way, Super Cell is as of now okay with it. Not saying I think this is copyright infringement or now. To the review section of the app: I absolutely love this game, it’s a game you can play in your free time or when you have a couple minutes to spare. Fantastic graphics, read a review dissing the graphics and there was no need for it. The graphics look better if not the same as to Clash Royale. It’s a different type of Clash Royale game; however, it’s still got some resemblance obviously. The game itself though is very fun and challenging. Everyone dissed this game due to the 50/50 chance that you destroy or get destroyed, that’s the fun in the game in my own opinion. I am a huge fan of Castle Crush and will continue to play it.
