  • Best game I have played, only one issue

    by T3353

    This is one of the best games of strategic defense, especially with the ability to play on the evil side, but one issue that I have had is disconnection with every person I find on multiplayer. no matter what it is, it's hard to find a match where the other person isn't disconnected the first second a match starts if this was to get fixed this would then be the best game I have found on the App Store and I would give it a full 5 stars.

  • Great game, greater potential

    by Audiblester

    On iPhone 5s. I bought this game a while ago and fairly enjoyed it, I played through the single player campaign and am left with the two "endless" levels. I as well enjoy playing co-op, it is fun and works great so far. I would have given 5 stars, but one thing keeps bothering me every time I return to the game after a few weeks or days of h&c recess. I wish that updates contain changes in the game, like an additional hero or an extra unit or enemy, maybe another 2 or 3 levels? This would at least get some of the pleasure back to the players who have been playing a while and are left with an incredibly boring last stand level. The first 3 times it's fun, no questions... But then it gets and gets less interesting and brings up continuous repetition. No fun! This should not be too difficult to accomplish! -1 star because of said stasis. Thank you.

  • Best of the Year thus Far

    by Wildkatt2012

    By far the funniest interactive game of the year.

  • Perfect

    by zanderarb

    Foursaken is my favorite iOS developer. Bug heroes and heroes and castles are my favorite games. Can't stop playing keep the updates and new games coming and ill keep buying!!!!

  • Fantastic!

    by Fang bone

    Despite all the good reviews for this I still wasn't convinced. Well put your mind at ease because this game is great. Many games have tried to pull this off but this is the first to really get it. Kudos to Foursaken for delivering yet again.

  • Really great but ...

    by jeh719

    Game has been absolutely awesome! Highly recommend. But has been crashing randomly ever since new update. Especially after level 10 in Corte. I've played it 3 times now in hopes it would save but it crashes right after I win and before it will save. Fix the issue and there is sure to be another 5 stars! Keep up the good work.


    by Foxflares2000

    This game is my 2nd to first favorite game ever and it is amazing and I love this game so much

  • Best game on App Store

    by Jojoonthelolo

    Absolutely best game I have played on App Store bar none. Lots of options still very interesting after you beat campaign with multiplayer options and tons of different play styles to change up. Heroes are great and offer a lot of variety in the game I have not put this game down since I picked it up. Only issue is some server lag on multiplayer and some disconnects maybe a penalty for those who leave early but other than that amazing thank you thank you thank you

  • A lot of fun

    by Eragon1495231215

    Thiy game is epic! It is a lot of fun, especially the coop missions, even though they are difficult af

  • Bugs and needed updates

    by Documenting

    Great game, it has the old Game Center logos and the graphics (for units) need to be better. Also don't make so many units look like the peon change the archer a little bit and the coloring or the hunters cloths (not its hood, match the color of its hood with its clothing) and also there is a bug where I start out with 6 gold per second when I should start with 1. I did all corte lvls in 1 day with this bug. It takes the fun out of the game and it should be fixed right away it makes the game too easy and makes recordss too easy to beat. I am now #350 on seige mode beacuse on that I started with 450 gold and I don't like it being easy so fix it right now.also fix the texture of the skeleton, hammer and , treemans faces. They look great from a distance but close up it looks like dots of paint. If the gold mine (bug) was part of the update then still take it out. And mabye you could make a 3 person multiplayer . Or in multiplayer the players share gold per second and gold. Lastly you could add upgrades that affect all heroes like the ones in seige mode for armor, health and damage. That's all and please fix this bug

  • Amazingly awesome

    by PersianMagic

    Can't find another game like this, and if you can you prob have to pay crap load of money. 100% worth it. I play it more than any other game. It's exactly what you think it is. Tower defense while fighting on the battlefield with different heroes. Take my advice and dl it if you like td defenses, it's better.

  • Ok

    by Bcsnvdh

    I think the game is amazing other than it needs a hero that is all disruption that maybe throws bombs or something but just something new would be great and then I will give five stars

  • Awesome

    by Gavenkinsey icloud

    I love this game but I want to give some ideas for a update ( siege mode able to level up your people and your hero. For siege mode as an enemy) and also able to buy skill points like 10 for 20 bucks I would buy

  • Fix the bugs

    by Mrmonkeymonk

    I can barely play other than that great game!!!

  • Not your average hack and slash!!

    by Loganiswolverine

    I've played many "sword" welding games in my day, however this is more than just get to the next guy and slash until you win, no no no.... This is strategy, strength, and even some luck to win to the end. I am not sure I will win to the end with some of the characters, I'm just not good enough. In one word. FUN!!!

  • Great game but

    by D12 rules

    The new update scrwed up the game!!!

  • Love the game

    by Purejester7

    Great game I play a lot but I would like a samurai person and a sword man that it good game

  • Holy crap

    by Vredevoogd

    Literally the best defense game on the App Store.... Literally

  • Great game

    by Jake love anatomy

    Great mix of tower defense/3rd person. And sending out units. I love the game except for the fact when you get to like level 5/30 it gets extremely hard. And the co-op with friends is not possible to beat. It is way too hard. Other than that this is a great game!

  • Great game.

    by 235576479

    Super fun.

  • Lag

    by Rrfxrffc

    Can't even play co-op it's so lagged out. I deleted this game before but they claimed to have fixed the problem so I downloaded again unfortunately. Game has potential. Fun on single player that's about it. And no it's not my connection because I play way more graphically inclined games than this without any problems.

  • The game is awesome but

    by Minecraftception

    I wish multiplayer had more than two player maybe like 4 and I feel graphics could use a little work, but otherwise this game is outstanding. I will rate 5 stars if these changes are made. Anyone who agrees write a similar review and we can incite change.

  • Data lost! Need refund- including in-app purchase ones.

    by Shining Ra Lord

    Data lost... I had fun playing this game, but the data losing is really annoying! I had a hero lvl 32, and nearly every troops maxed upgrades, also several legendary runes. Now they're all gone. Totally rip off... Dev, fix this problem with the data overwrite and loss ASAP! You can restore my data anyways so no point me asking that either. What I would like is my money refund though since your app didn't keep my data properly and deleted them.

  • Crashes so much

    by Joeytoenail

    I spent money on this a while ago, got bored of the app and then deleted it. Nor when I try to restore the purchases it crashes. EVERY TIME. There is no way to restore my old purchases

  • What I was looking for

    by Ruisu475

    I was searching the App Store for a while looking for a game like this that has almost everything I want in a game!

  • Good game but...

    by Mc4 Lol

    I say that it's worth the money but when I was level seven, it crashed and I went back to level one, stage one which ticked me off so please help me with a new update

  • Added content

    by Nadroj147

    Please make more coop player like 4. More characters and upgrades. Needs to be more easy for coop. My friend is a low level and right away it gets really hard. You guys should make levels and an endless mode for coop.

  • Good but crashes

    by Hdkwjdnsjfj

    Great game, but crashes every time I try to play. Will change rating when this is fized

  • Crash!

    by Thalduin

    Love this game!!! But when I got it for the iPad mini it goes to the loading screen and then crashes! Fix please! 5 stars otherwise!

  • All Data Lost

    by Matt Shanklin

    It's a 5-star game. 1 star rating is because the game reset all it's data and I lost all my progress. 5 star rating once my data is restored.

  • Crashes

    by Awesomefarmer989

    I can't get into the dang game! I use an iPad Mini and every time it gets to the loading screen, it crashes.


    by Siglyph

  • Crash

    by GUY-den-TALL-a-GIST

    Can't even play it on my ipad mini. Pretty upset I bought a game I can't even play.

  • Love this game!

    by petert686

    So much fun Foursaken Media always does a great jo,b can't say enough good things about this game.

  • Really ticked off

    by Tshives72

    I spent about 5 bucks on the game. When at level 13 it crashed and kicked me off. I got back on and lost everything including my character and gems I payed for. Then I spent 15 bucks an hour ago and the same thing happened after I bought the paid version this time. Couldn't be much more mad at the game. Undownloading now.

  • Awesome

    by Cjmchampton

    This is a fantastic game. The combined RPG and RTS components along with lots of multiplayer options make it completely addicting. This has been my favorite IOS game for months.

  • Fun but a few suggestions

    by Kierstenv

    It is an awesome game. Haven't found anything like it in the App Store. One annoying problem is that when I go to play coop multiplayer in the global setting, it always says sync error. Plays just fine locally on the same network. Another improvement would be to allow up to 4 players to play together. This would be awesome. Thanks for a good game overall though guys.


    by BrandonMarcus and Valerie

    The friggin enemy has GIANTS!!!! He enemy team is the most overpowered team ever!!!!! And when playing coop. DISCONNECT DISCONNECT DISCONNECT!!!!!! I hate it!!! Siege mode has over powered enemy's!!! Thy have giants, multiply heroes and catapults?!?!?!? I just defeated stage three and their over powered!!!!!!!!!! We should be able to choose he enemy and the diffuculty! FIX IT!!!!!

  • Great game but crashes

  • Very Addicting

    by 564231890

    Great game overall but when I play co op it lags really bad in the 30 mins and up. Is the fallen king a unlockable siege unit? It says I unlock him but does't show as a usable unit.

  • Sad i loved this game...

    by scooter29

    Still one man army vs over power army that can actually use plans. Didn't fix the broken enemies, level locks, Poor AI that mindless attacks. I thought this would be fixed be now.

  • Crash!!

    by themummylives

    Whenever I open it and hit campaign or siege it crashes I haven't played in a while because of this and I would appreciate it very much if you fixed it, thanks! Otherwise this game is one of the best!!!

  • A+

    by Peter Wagner

    Good game having a lot of fun

  • Great game

    by Nighthawk505

    Love how it keeps you entertained

  • Love it

    by Ndidnfnxj

    Love the game play it a lot but can you guys allow gems to transfer into skill points because I have so much gems unlock all skins and characters so please can you make it happen

  • Best game on iOS

    by Fang bone

    If you don't have this game you are just wasting your time with inferior products. Get it now.

  • Decent game

    by Vastra117

    This game offers a good amount of play time while having a great story like even though it is a little brief. The game is not overly geared towards in app purchases which is nice. There should be more characters and each character should have more abilities to use. Also there should a way to play with your friends not just random people.

  • Horrible

    by djdmjd

    It's your hero vs. what seems like an army of 10,000. Low health for your hero and overpowered enemies. Your hero attacks once every 6 seconds.

  • Crashhhhhh

    by EthanN0910

    Great game but crashes and won't let me play iPhone 4s

  • Pretty darn good

    by Amadaru

    All in all, a great game. I love it. Some new buildings or units would not go amiss, though. The crashing after every level or two is a big downer. Would like to see this fixed as soon as possible. But it is still a great game and worth the price!

  • Truly amazing a 6 out of 5 stars!

    by Dack363

    I've always been skeptical of games you have to pay for on an apple product but this one cuts the cake! Multiplayer has been fixed, coop and 1v1 mode are amazing, and each unit is completely unique. Well done

  • Hey

    by Fishsmell101

    I used to play this game and got really far in it. I even spent money to get it. I loved how it was co-op I played it with my cousin a lot :). My iPad broke and I had to redownload it. Now It crashes all the time on the startup, won't let me send invites, and all my heroes reset :(

  • Progress Lost

    by St3vert

    The game crashed on me and lost all my data. I loved this game before-hand.

  • Best game ever!

    by ):$:$373!.),(

    This is my favorite game. Please add more heroes like a dragon humanoid that breaths fire and can have mini dragons flying around him as a passive ability.

  • Big Bang for the price.

    by Jarocombs

    Very engaging and graphics are great for price. If u like smashing skeletons and tower defense types this is heaven. If u play nonstop the device heats up in the joystick area.

  • To forsaken media

    by Buried alive a7x

    You should provide a refund or fix crashes and other aspects of the game which you over looked. Your a bunch of Dicks!!!!

  • Crashes

    by MapleMe

    Please fix the crashes

  • Need to improve the multiplay system~

    by 쿠키보미

    Someday, The multiplay system has been changed when i installed this app again. In the past, i used to play the multiplay in game center but now, i think its own server for the multiplay. It looked good at the first time but now i have a problem in the condition of playing game. It started to be laggy and slow in the multiplay. I haven't seen like this before it was changed. I know it could be my network's condition or someone else but it always is too much laggy. I guess i'm usually playing this in asia so it would be a problem because it's too far from the origin server. Nees to fix it please~

  • Awesome game

    by Vlad77s

    I truly appreciate the fact that the developers are continuing to add content to the game. Game is addictive and each game only takes a few minutes. Some stages are really challenging. I hope they improve the seige mode though. I would like to be able to level up my evil characters on a more permanent basis like the good characters.

  • Decent game

    by Obes5023

    Fun game game but too difficult. Paladin, Dwarf, Ranger, and Veteran are all useless against reapers which are extremely overpowered.

  • Great game, but it crashes!!!

    by Rnmji

    I spent THREE dollars on this game and love it, except that it crashes about every three minutes. Please fix and will give ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.

  • Awesome

    by Fundx

    The dev brothers are really an awesome team. Most active devs on the toucharcade forums. Very fast and good updates.

  • Best Real-time RPG

    by Oh yeah2134532

    Please make a sequel because this engine is awesome. Maybe they get a castle too, with some weapon and armor structure, some random or hidden treasures and even more skill tree options. I love what you have done, now let me buy another one.

  • Awesome

    by PresumedChicken

    I play this game a lot, it is very good

  • Good for hours and hours

    by J J L

    Amazing game. The only thing I ask is for there to be multiplayer with more than 2 people so I can play with two or three other people.

  • Great game

    by Xz_WOLF_zX

    For this price I'd say this is the best game out there, you should add pets such as:baby dragons, spirit wolf, fairies, something along those lines, other than that great game :D

  • Amazing!

    by Red John84

    This game is amazing it's extremely fun and it's one of the best games I've played on iOS before it's worth every penny if your trying to decide wether to get it or not get it now!
