TO begin with, this is a Facebook game that is a clone of the popular Clash of clans. Unlike alot of Facebook games this DOESN'T have an energy bar, what it does have is gems (or gold in this case) that can be used to speed up construction of buildings or recruitment of soldiers, this currency is rewarded for free from achivements and leveling up. While gold can't be used to buy and premium troops (who would have boosted stats), whoever buys the most gold will have the highest level and more troops to use repeatedly, so its P2W.

In the settings there are three choices (count them 3!), Music on/off, Sound Effects on/off, and Connect to Facebook so you can play with your friends because using the Steam friend sytem would be to difficult to use.... -_-

Gameplay- Exactly like Clash of Clans, boring, and meant for mobile games.

My final rating- 1/10, the 1 for not having an energy bar, if it had an energy bar I would just uninstall Steam completely, everything in game can be gotten for free but the ones who drops $100's will be on top of the leaderboards, this game should of stayed on mobile/Facebook and never brought to Steam.

Do steam a favor and not give this game any cash, because if you do, MORE Facebook games will come to Steam trying to get the same kind of money out of you people.

These kind of games should never end up on steam and should just stay on facebook/mobile phones.

This game is absolute garbage. I am getting sick and tired of seeing these Mobile-To-PC ports showing up on Steam. The developers were so lazy that they didn't even change some of the words, because there are still words like "Tap" instead of "Click". This is literally just a mobile game, with MAYBE better graphics. I wouldn't know that though since you can't adjust any of the graphics. It has all of the micro-transaction as a regular mobile game, too. And I hope you like not seeing the bottom part of the game, because since there is no way of changing the resolution, the game gets cut off by your tool-bar. Don't even waste your time with this game. It's horrendous.

This game is the same as the mobile version and if you do not want to waste your time and sanity then do not download this game! This game was originally made for Mobile phones however they have done nothing to improve the game or even change the game by adding additional features as the Windows, Linux or MAC are many times more powerful machines than a mobile phone...

In my honest opinion you should not download this game as its a point and click game that has very small features, making you wait for hours upon completion of building and the game itself has very simple strategy mechanics that are totally boring. However this game does suit people who like clicking based games as this game introduces simple tycoon mechanics and more of a casual game-play.

The storyline for this game needs work as they are not narrated and are very basic text. The main animations and sound of the game also needs improvement as they are not very appealing for PC users, the whole game has been recoded to work on the computer but no extra features have been added! Not even graphical improvements, no improvements on the whole story and the strategy side of this game is appalling.

Thank you for the game but I do not recommend it.

It is Pay2Win, it is a game i started hating right with the tutorial and here is why.

Build this, build that and wait, it costs resources and time to build, with "gold ingots" aka ingame currency you can build faster, skip waiting time, that's all what the tutorial ingame is about, a bait-mechanic to trigger your "i-needz-teh-gold-ingots-and-pay-for-it-if-required-to-be-l33t-faster"-sense.

There are also other buildings that require gold ingots in order to be able to build them, if you don't have them, you could earn them by reaching achievements or pay for it - let's say 300 gold ingots for 1,99$.

Uninstalled and removed from my library, be very careful when you have kids with own money, it is a game that aims for ripping younger people off or people in general.
