Royal Match Positive Reviews
Fun but….I’ve been playing for a few months now and I switched teams to an amazing team that actually plays and gives lives. Some things I’ve noticed about this game: Levels that are categorized as nothing, hard, very hard & super hard. I think that’s crap with some of them. I would not say it’s luck when I get through a hard level or even super hard level in one or 2 lives without using any power boosters in the beginning of playing the level. I’m on a normal level now that is not categorized as hard or super hard. It should be categorized as super hard. When it can take me 2 days to get past a level, yeah, I would consider that to be hard to super hard. I really think they just throw that label on any level. I feel like it’s all preset. Has anyone else noticed that when you get 30 minutes of free lives, no matter how easy or hard the levels are, you’ll get through one, maybe two levels then you’ll get stuck on an easy level for the remainder of the 30 minutes? Once the 30 minutes is almost up, you’ll get through the level. All in all, the game is fun. You don’t need to buy anything which is nice. Also, they always coming up with new ads for the game with helping out the kind but there aren’t any of those levels once you get passed a certain point of the game. That would make it more fun..Laura buckVersion: 7888
Long time player hereThis is my second attempt at a review. Don’t know why my other never showed up.
I’ve been playing Royal Match for over a year. I have been both on a team and playing solo.
Likes: Graphics are great, there are no ads, you don’t have to pay any real money (and I never have) in order to keep advancing. Being on a team can be a lot of fun as it has a chat feature so you can form a camaraderie with your teammates, as well as get more lives than if you play solo (15 more).
Don’t likes: Reaching Royal League status (when you’ve completed all the existing levels until the next update—which comes every 2 weeks) does not feel like a privilege; it feels like a punishment. It makes it harder to help the team during the team battles. Finding the right team to suit you can be a challenge. Fortunately, one can leave and switch teams, if one is not a good fit. Or just play solo, which I am doing now—however, you’ll then only have a max of 5 lives, another con. Some levels can take me days to pass, so it can get very frustrating.
Overall, the game is of high quality and keeps me challenged and coming back for more. One of my current favorite games to play!.PoochiestVersion: 10486
RoyalMatchI really like playing this game but it is so expensive to play it’s ridiculous. You have to spend 1900 coins just to get three helps with the hammer, and most of the other ones run about 3900 coins. I have spent so much money on this game trying to pass these levels it’s ridiculous. I can’t keep doing it so sometimes I’ll just spend time going over and over again on it trying different ways, but like I said even though it’s a fun game it’s very expensive and I’m sure the developers, etc, are making a ton of money off this game. They need to lower the amount of coins that you need to spend to get helps. Then if you want to buy helps with your own money that can be expensive. 1000 coins for $1.99 can go super quick, as well as $4.99 to $6.99 for some of the lower price packets where you might get anywhere from 5000 to 14,000 coins, but again that could go in about five minutes if you’re trying to pass a level. I think the most I spent at one time was $9.99 for some coins and some hops and like I said it doesn’t last long. The game isn’t really designed to help you progress, especially as you go up each level where it gets harder and harder, and don’t give me all the algorithms are designed for this or that. I’ve been playing this game long enough that I can see how it works. You keep saying that all levels are beatable without having to buy anything or using boosters, but only certain levels are....mimidVersion: 9024
An enjoyable game with some quirky background mechanicsIt’s a pretty standard match 3 game like many others. Has some fun and interesting gameplay mechanics and so more frustrating ones that quickly get left behind after their section is over (thank goodness). Many of the more difficult levels are dependent on having powerups. The game is fairly generous with powerups and if you join a good team you shouldn’t be lacking in them.
However if you do run out you will be stuck on certain missions for ages. They make them just possible enough that they can be beaten without spending money but you have to get insanely lucky with the RNG. If you’re willing to whip out your wallet then you’re in luck! No matter how little or how much money you spend the game will reward you by making the levels trivially easy for a short time period. I was stuck on a “very hard” level for ages, attempting it at least 100 times with and without powerups, I purchased 1 USD worth of coins and my next attempt I beat it with more than half of my attempts left. For about an hour after that the game pretty much played itself, dropping combos in a cascade never seen before purchasing those coins. I would beat levels in 3 turns out of 30! Exact same scenario happened the next time I was stuck on a level and purchased 1 USD worth of coins. So if you’re ever stuck just remember to whip out the old wallet and you’ll be rewarded with free wins..Willeh?Version: 7312
Remember when the only rehash games were p*rn?First off, if you're looking for the game in the ads, this isn't it. This is a Candy Crush reskin. If you want to play Bejeweled so much, just play Bejeweled. If you want the game you saw in the ads, you’re out of luck.
Secondly, if you want a free game, you're getting what you paid for. This game is technically free. Unless you want powerups or coins or hearts or other little bits to make gameplay faster.
Which brings us to point three: ads. The game is technically ad-free in the same way grocery stores don't have ads for other stores but still constantly bombard you with offers to get you to make like the Backstreet Boys and buy, buy, buy.
So why, with so much complaint, does this get three stars? Because it's a perfectly serviceable game. It's a reskin of a reskin of a reskin, but it's not utter garbage. It's just generic brand junk food. It's basically the same thing, but cheaper and less willing to try new things. By the time something is added to the game, you can be sure it’s been done to death in other games, regardless of genre. The most innovation you'll get is in the ads, which, for a generic brand product, are innovative. Of course, they show the utter lack of creativity in the company, but what do you really expect?
The best thing I can say about the game is that it isn't buggy or resource-intensive. It's slow, but it keeps going without crashing..WizeManBOBVersion: 12491
Not what it seems…I got this game because I thought there would be more of the “Save the King” type games as advertised, but that was not the case. Those games, which are fun, are very few and far between. The matching games, which you have to earn QUITE a few before earning a “Save the King” game are enjoyable and often maddening, and are EXTREMELY quick to dupe you into making on-line purchases for more aids in helping explode pumpkins, pounding squares, shooting rows to release birds, and the like. For those parents out there, please be advised that your children could spend a fortune on this game in no time, if they cannot exercise restraint. The graphics are stunning and the games are challenging for kids and adults alike. My biggest complaint is the amount of coins required to play on. 900 coins are required for continuing to play on in a round that has ended; 1900 for another chance after that. Of course, they want you to purchase more coins, which I do not, so often times I will replay a game, sometimes for days, until I win by sheer luck or earn enough coins to play on. My advice to anyone reading this is to avoid downloading the game. It’s not at all what is advertised, especially if you want “Save the King” games. I’ve been playing this game for months now, on and off, and I think I have played about 10 “Save the King” games is all. The download is not what it seems…..MZ BEEBZVersion: 12647
THE FIX IS INJust like almost every other game available here the fix is in with this one as well. First of all the advertisements for it whilst playing other games and having to watch endless ads shows levels “saving the king” which only very rarely appear during actual game play. Secondly it’s all about the money. I’m on level 374 and over and over and over and over again I cannot beat the level. It’s not because I don’t know HOW to beat it, it’s just that the game never gives you what you need. For instance if the goal is to collect a certain number of a pink gem it makes sure you get fewer than that number before you run out of moves. Then you have the option to spend coins that are exceeding difficult to earn unless you are gifted with a rare bonus level. NINE HUNDRED COINS to get an additional THREE moves! And you still don’t get what you need, then to get three more moves it’s 1900 coins. But once you give in and spend the coins you’re done, it will only rarely let you win on the first try because now its in their algorithm that you are stupid enough to buy something from them. These developers should be ashamed of themselves because it really is just about robbing people. They figured that out during the pandemic. Do some research to see how much money they raked in while people were quarantined..Nanato5angelsVersion: 6760
Amazing and addictive! One suggestion…I instantly became addicted to this game the second I started playing. The levels are fun and building the rooms gives it a point so your not just playing levels to play them. I’ve played other puzzle matching games like this in the past and some levels have been extremely difficult, causing me to quit trying. This game has hard levels but not so hard that I would quit the game. The bonus levels where you collect the coins are fun to and appear quite often. The one thing I would suggest is that the kings nightmare levels appear more often because when I first downloaded, I was so happy to see the nightmare level like shown in the ads. After the level, I was constantly waiting for the next one to appear but it was until around level 45 maybe that I saw the next one. I wish there was more because those are my absolute favorite levels of the game and I’m sad to say that I have only played a few of them out of the whole time I’ve had this game. I hope to see more of these in the game soon. Other than that, I completely love this game and would definitely recommend downloading this!!! 😃😃❤️❤️.StrawberryTea🍓Version: 6771
Awesome and free game! But some improvements would make it better :)Can you please enable the option to remove members from the page that shows how much shield points they contributed during the tournaments? This will be very helpful because it’s easier to remove the correct players. For example if you have duplicate names, it can sometimes be tricky to look at the points screen and then go to the member info. Being able to remove from the point screen would be life changing! Thank you. Also, wow, it feels like as soon as you enter King’s Cup the game is over for you. Instead of feeling like wow, I made it! It feels like wow, I’m done!!! You give only 1 shield point for most of the levels even though they can be insanely difficult!!! Please help. Reward shields accordingly and don’t make it so difficult:( we want to spend our limited free time with you but we need to feel welcome and appreciated, or at least not feel tortured. Thank you!!! Your game is great, but as in everything else in life, it can be improved :).YjfubsVersion: 11098
EhhhI do enjoy this game, but the fact that once you get further into it (level 1721) and it takes 100 stars to upgrade an area is ridiculous. Maybe for the tougher levels, give 2 or 3 stars? I haven’t upgraded areas for months and got up to 420 stars saved. I burned through in 10 minutes to unlock 4 areas and only get 1k total coins(which is the most important part of the game, coins) and I’d love to understand how the developers figure out coins for remaining moves. Many of levels I’ve had 10+ moves left and I only get 50 coins…which is questionable. I have no problem with a game being difficult, but if it’s going to difficult shouldn’t you give the players back a bit more? Two last things, the kings nightmare are very fun, but haven’t seen those challenges in quite some time. Maybe every 25 instead of 50 or 100? Lastly, I know you say all the levels can be beat without powerups, but when you only have 20 moves and the level has to be reshuffled three times in the first five moves doesn’t add up. I’d love to see how you can do that especially on a hard level/level with 4 sections you have to beat. I’d love to hear a response because I do enjoy the game. But people aren’t wrong when they say it’s a pay to play game. It’s either that or wait to play.Dice2311Version: 9801
Watch out - This game punishes you if you don’t pay money!If you don’t use power ups or coins to complete the level the game punishes you by giving you crappy things for the next 10 lives that you use even though the level is not a hard level. And, many of the regular levels that do not specifically say it’s a hard level end up being impossible to finish until it finally starts giving you something you can play with. So, if I choose not to waste my 900 coins on a level that shouldn’t be too hard to complete I can’t make any matches but threes in order to get power ups to complete the level. Seriously, they must’ve added an algorithm that keeps you from getting anything you need to pass the level if you don’t pay any money or use all your coins. This game is just a time waster. I like the teams and challenges sometimes, but the game really makes me mad because you have to continue the level even if you know it’s a lost cause. I wish I could quit the level early and restart it when I know it’s a lost cause. Also, the game is rigged to try to make you spend cash or all your coins! I don’t like that! I like the game but I don’t like that it’s rigged!.XxsmillsVersion: 6960
3-5 starsThe game is frustrating there is a couple of levels i cant even get through without 3 hearts or boosters. Depending on ur level thats how hard it is, i currently haven’t played in months over a i just started playing again and i’m still struggling. the game is not to bad its just i don’t really like it (thats an opinion btw) and some people are good and some are bad like me, When I first got the game I was very happy until a level i couldn’t pass. i got really mad, disappointed, and sad over a level. Im looking forward to get better at this game but sometimes the levels are challenging to the point where it takes 2-5 hearts/lives, And thats really annoying i have to keep using boosters for little levels that u can pass really easily and I don’t wanna keep doing that. So please when new people join can u give 5 free boosters because some levels are difficult to the point where u just give up and want to restart the whole game. Thats also not an option, All of your progress saves and i thought it didn’t because when u delete a app it says “all your data will be removed” i’ve never left a bad review on anything but i’m really annoyed and disappointed..Ttsweettea😛😝$$Version: 6960
DebatingLike many others I decided to try this game based on the save the king screens they use as a come on. Like many others, I have seen a save the king screen rarely. The obstacles are difficult to clear and frequently I need one or two moves, at most, to clear the screen, but find that 900 coins is simply too hard to come by so I start the screen over. I don’t mind a challenge, but this is actually more stressful than challenging. Yes, the sense of accomplishment when you FINALLY clear a screen is nice, but it comes so infrequently that I’m not sure it’s worth the effort. I am considering removing the game and hunting for a game that isn’t set up to require purchasing anything to move ahead, or at least rewards more coins for a win or requires fewer coins for additional moves. I appreciate the lack of ads and understand that they have to get money some way, but by making it so obviously designed to cost the player, it becomes a bit one way, and that way is against the player. I don’t play games to challenge myself, I play games to unwind from the challenges of daily life. Why would I continue to play any game that causes more frustration, more stress?.Tngrl1989Version: 12491
ComplainersSo many reviews here are just people blaming either their lack of skill or their lack of patience. I have not spent a penny and continue to advance. Yes some levels may take a day or two worth of heart refreshes but there are absolutely strategies u can apply on each level to eventually (with some luck of the draw) beat. My two complaints are the lack of kings nightmare (like advertised) the concept of the advertised king in peril levels is really cool but basically non existent in game. My second complaint is the room building via star program. It’s fully pointless. Short of offering u some items upon room completion there is zero point to decorating the room. Give me a choice to pick color/pattern/item style or any other change that would make my room different from another. Instead every single person that plays this has the exact same room. What is the point. I basically just save stars and quickly click to complete a room. It offers nothing to the game. However this is a fun and relatively challenging puzzle game. Good for break time or just a few minutes here and there..BigdonkeyVersion: 7312
Royal Addict!Love this game! I have been playing for less than a year. I am on level 1519! Total addict! I noticed when you are at a high level like I am and playing a weekly tournament I am mostly playing with other players that are at levels less than 400 so it is much easier for them to win than I. Other times with some at a much closer level with I find it more challenging and even won once! But there is just one that I don’t like. I have a strong faith in God and people in front of me who use God’s name in vain I am quick to tell them, “please don’t use God’s name in vain “ His name is only to be used in praise. That’s why it saddens me that the makers of Royal match who have used the actors from the show “suits” to do their on line commercials have chose to put the words, “Thank God” in it where it didn’t need to be put there. It’s using our, your God’s name in vain. It’s not the actor’s fault at all but it’s the script writer. I will always be a Royal addict but ask the writers to please REMOVE His name in their commercials..Where's my wine!Version: 11384
It gets boring after a whileWhen I downloaded this game, it was fun for a while. But you will come to a point where the game kinda force you to spend real money to be able to pass a level. That’s where i decided to delete the game because although i have spent money on this game a few times, I didn’t know its a regular thing to do to constantly spend real money to pass a level and thats not cool, that’s actually insulting. They out you on a very hard level with not a decent amount of moves. They purposely give you a little bit of moves so you get stuck and have to spend money. The only other way to pass some of those levels without spending real money is if you are with a team that constantly wins between 1st and 3rd place. You can win up to 6000 coins which are very helpful to win some levels that you get stuck for a while. This is the only way to pass a level when you’re stuck, either with spending real money or sit an wait to see if your team wins which its not often considering there’s probably thousands of teams. I have to say, im very disappointed at this game for their greediness..E_diaz80Version: 5761
Very good gameEdit: I have made it to level 1000 and still have plenty of coins and power ups. I have never felt like I was truly stuck on a level and I have never felt like I needed to spend money in order to progress in the game. The challenges are fun, easy, and give you plenty of rewards like coins and power ups. I have not spent a penny on this game but honestly I wouldn’t mind either way, because like I said I don’t feel like I need to in order to progress. The best part: still NO ADS. If you’re looking for something casual I definitely recommend this game.
I’m on level 151, which I realize is only like 2% of the levels but this game is a top tier mobile game. First and foremost, there are no ads, absolutely none. Not even ads to gain a reward. Second, earning coins, power ups, and other rewards is so easy. I have yet to get frustrated or stuck on a level because the amount of coins you earn versus the amount you spend is amazing. I can get lost in this game for hours. Highly recommend..Isabelle.warbyVersion: 10875
I don’t understand the complaintsI’ve been playing this game pretty much since it came out our whole family plays it we’re in a team together every once in a while I get stuck on a level for a day but overall I can pass 100 levels in just two or three days I’m always going into Royal league because I passed the Levelz two quickly so I end up helping my kids pass their levels it’s good clean fun and you don’t have to spend money to play this game.
Our whole family worked together just recently on team battle and we won first place everybody was excited about winning 6000 coins
My suggestion for people who have a hard time playing take your time don’t just swipe to swipe thinking out each and every move and save your boosters and coins only use them when you absolutely have to if you just get on a level and you don’t pass it play it for a little while before you use any coins to help pass..Fenn12345Version: 10486
Screws you on coinsI liike the game all around except when after u complete a level an u have a how every many moves left it turns those into free power moves to get free coins well when u get the disco ball one let’s say it knocks out 10 or more colors out u will
Get anywhere from 3-7 coins doesn’t matter if it takes out 20+ colors u will literally only get 3-7 if ur lucky 9 coins it won’t give u a coin for every color I HATE THAT but all the other free power moves it gives u the exact number of coins per color what’s with that!! I was under the impression every color it takes out/ breaks whatever u get that exact number of coins but no only for all the other free power moves just not for the disco ball one an that drives me nuts!! I hate that it does that an a lot of other people that I know that play this Hate that Aswell I have literally counted 34 colors gettin taken/ broke/ destroyed whatever u wanna call it an it only give me 9-10 coins wish very very very much in updated or new version that that changes an you get the right exact number of coins pure color it breaks/ takes/ destroys but other then that I like the game.Mark fir gameVersion: 9293
Confiscated coins…Most Recent Update: Once again, my coins disappeared. I noticed my coins had nearly split in half, all of a sudden I noticed it so I contacted support right away and told them but they didn’t believe me. Why would I need to lie about fake money that I didn’t even pay for?? It’s just really really disappointing because I like collecting my coins & seeing how many I can get. I had saved so much and they just took half of it. So not fair! Update: I got my coins back and I take back what I said about this game. It’s a really fun game and I love that you can beat levels within a team. My coins are being taken away. I had 5,000 then I was 1000 less, then all of a sudden now I’m at 1000!? I didn’t buy anything and I keep a close eye on my coins. Also, they have a billion pop up ads asking for money all the time and I always bypass them. Is this some sort of scam to get me to buy coins? Everything was great before all of this started happening. All within the last couple of days. If developers are reading this, can you please fix this issue? Thank you. Until then it’s a solid 1 star..Really?1234Version: 8716
Power Ups NecessaryThe game is fairly fun and a good way to pass time. The downside is there are some levels that are impossible to beat without power ups. Once you pay for power ups be prepared to be required to buy more at each level. It generally takes a couple of minutes to win or lose each course, but the time you have to wait between getting new lives is 20 minutes. If you’re not paying for extra lives then you’ll be waiting to play longer than you’ll actually get to play. These are the reasons I think I’m on my last leg with the game (currently at level 1550). I don’t want to always have to pay to play or wait so long for lives that I forget about the game and move on to something else.
***Response to developer*** true, you can request lives from your teammates every FOUR HOURS. In my experience this ends up being more of the waiting game. Also, there are opportunities to win timed unlimited lives… but when you’re stuck on the same level for days because you’re not purchasing power-ups then you don’t reach those opportunities..CAc_13Version: 7888
Delete everything elseWhen it comes to games like this I try to give them a 100 level benefit of the doubt. I’ll play the game for up to 100 levels before I decide if it’s some thing that I deem worth my time or not. I downloaded the game after months of seeing the ads while playing other games. What really sold me was a cameo featuring actor Rick Hoffman, he detailed the gorgeous graphics and the fact that there were “zero ads“. I thought this could not be true. Lo and behold I have played the game for three days, I have not had a single ad, and on top of that there are no annoying tutorial levels! I mean come on games like this have been around for years, we all know how to swipe and match! I wish that there was a way that I could give this more than five stars, as I am absolutely in love with this game, so much so that I have deleted other games such as Gardenscapes, Candy Crush, Homescapes, Matchington, etc..Anthrogirl30Version: 10261
Not really honestI’ve been playing this game for months. At first I was extremely irritated that the ads that draw you to this game never appeared. I started playing on a different device under another name and I actually played a couple. The biggest issue that I have is that the developers punish you for playing well. It’s not the levels get harder it’s that things are programmed against you. For example the tnt special mystery takes out more of the board when there is a more powerful special on the board. Or that if you combine the copter with the rocket it takes out pieces that need removed, unless there is a light ball. Then it goes out of its way to take out the light ball. And if you have a light ball when you combine 2 specials for your last move, you know to maybe get more books, the light ball will always be taken out. I don’t mind giving a little money here and there, but I want an honest game. To the developers there’s an old saying “ If you dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with B… S…” needless to say I can tell the difference..Ike n. fixitVersion: 5355
What a breath of fresh air + one suggestion.Finally coming across a game that doesn’t spam ads and paywall every feature is (like the title suggest) a breath of fresh air. It’s very easy to get attached to this game, but I’m not exactly upset over it. Your team communities have been nothing but nice and active, and overall, fun to participate with in challenges when those times come.
With all of this said, my suggestion would HAVE to be a infinite/zen mode. No move limits, no lives involved, maybe a tier of rewards for how far you go in this mode, or certain moves could earn coins - this, that, and the third. I understand this would defeat the purpose of the game but if you make it to where only a certain level can achieve, and make it to where it works with the rest of the game - I could guarantee your players would love it.
Either way, thanks for making a dope game, I’m gonna go back to playing now, haha..Ya boi josh a ha haVersion: 7495
Fun Game But….I really like this game but they should make it easier for players who have reached level 1000 and give us more rewards during the bonus rounds and more frequent bonus rounds. My biggest issue with the game and the reason I gave it only 3 stars is the Royal Pass. I was really really disappointed with the royal pass. In most games if you get a pass you get extra goodies as you pass levels. In Royal match you have 27 days of the royal pass BUT you can only make it to the next set of prizes after you have played the number of games that corresponds with the date. For example, when you play the first game on day one you get the reward, then you have to play two games to get the next set of prizes, then you have to play 3 games to get the next set of prizes, then you have to play 4 games to get the next set of prizes and so on and so on, it is really frustrating to have to play 15, then 16, then 17, then 18 games, etc., just to get a few rewards and this is AFTER you pay $9.99 for the pass. I will not buy another royal pass..Katrice's itunesVersion: 4943
I would give it a 5 star but there’s some things that need adjusting!I love this game! Although, there are a few things in the game that I feel is a rip off. When you get the light ball, it’s suppose to cancel out all of one main color, although every time it cancels out the colors, instead of waiting for the squares to drop, the light ball activates when the colors are in mid air and it defeats the purpose of using the light ball in the first place. If the creators can fix the light ball malfunction then the game would get a 5 stars. Until then, I feel like it’s a bit of a rip off regardless of how strategic you are.
Another note, I’ve continuously upgraded the game and have entered the “Royal Court” almost 10 different times and it seems like the levels are repeated themselves with just a few new things added. I normally spend about $50 + a month and that’s including the : Royal Pass, extra lives and travel deals, so you can say I’m a very invested customer and play this game to help with my anxiety.
Please fix the issues..DeeLeenyVersion: 9801
From Fun to FrustratingPlayed over 2900 levels and it used to provide good tough and interesting challenges that if after a couple failures on a board you could sort out and harder levels may take a few extra tries. Provides lots of opportunity to get boosters and extra lives from teammates and checks most of the right boxes for in game activities. Power ups really went for things that helped you win and get through tough parts but not they go towards ruining combo and other power up setups to hinder you. Now at high levels, easy levels are rarely passable in a good time frame. I’ve been on a very hard level for 6 days and about 35 lives, only way possible it seems is paying for just a couple extra moves. Incredibly frustrating, I don’t want to even play or support the game at this point. You’ll reach this point at around level 1500 and you’ll either grind and grind or do the smart thing and just move onto something else. Game has good potential if you like grinding it out.TallwaldoVersion: 9024
Fun but needs improvementI’ve been playing this for a while now so here are my pros and cons
-An overall fun game to pass the time
-The Team mechanics
-Very generous with rewards and power-ups.
-I’m on level 1620 as I’m writing this and have yet to experience the aggressive push to make in-app purchases that other games tend to do. Regardless if I pay or not, I can still enjoy the game.
-It’s nice to look at.
-The “King’s Nightmare” levels are a complete scam. The ads show that these levels are more puzzle based. I remember seeing one about helping him patch a window and you had to pick the right item. Not only have I yet to see this level, but all the Nightmare levels are just the same as the basic matching ones but with a timer. Oh, and these levels only happen every 100th level or so.
-While this game is generous with rewards and power ups, this is only if you win a level. Some levels are impossible without power ups.
-Some obstacles require power ups or a match 3 times to be cleared and it’s very frustrating. I hate them. Especially those lanterns that turn off if you don’t make three matches in a row.
-This game drains my battery
-The goal of the game is to win stars to use to place furniture in each room. Sometimes these furniture require as much as 15 stars. That’s garbage. Especially if you give up 15 stars just to put a plant in the corner. At least make the hard and super hard levels reward 3-5 stars..MoyarBVersion: 12491
Falling out of love with this game.Love the puzzles and enjoy working as a team. However, constantly having to manually update every two weeks for new levels is a bit annoying yet I tolerate it. It’s also weird that they higher you go (Royal league) the less rewards you receive. What I flat out don’t like hands down is company keeps trying to force everyone to have to buy power ups and lives to win challenges by giving less and less rewards for beating levels. It’s so obvious they just want to milk people out of their money. The company should just go ahead and allow ads if their that strapped for cash. It isn’t my experience that you have to buy coins to advance. The levels are not impossible to beat. I think some people give up quickly. My issue is more so that they used to reward players for beating levels now they aren’t and who wants to do something where they have to buy their reward?
If someone buys time to play they should have a pause button to stop the clock..Renata NicoleVersion: 8716

Fun but it’s not like the adsI like match three games. When I saw the ads depicting match three challenges to save the jig from some kind of demise, I thought it would be a different twist on the puzzles I enjoy. I’m at level 218 and I haven’t seen anything that compares to the video samples in the ads. Either change the game or change the ads!!!.Maj_momVersion: 5502

Royal Match Negative Reviews
Great game, but I’m quitting…My adventures in Royal match! You will be treated like royalty! No?Why? Read on for my ONE BIG REASON TO QUIT BEFORE YOU START. I’d rather watch five 60 second adds than wait 20 minutes to play again after every lost round. I downloaded this, lost after ten minutes or so, first it told me to come back in a few minutes, so I waited, played, then waited and waited…….still waiting…….oh yeah okay, I’ll just put this in the background three or four screens over, one month later, I stumble on the game, play ten minutes, admire the graphics, Oooooops! Time’s up! Come back….ONE MONTH LATER…..Play 15 minutes. Ooooops, life got in the way….LEAVE TO PLAY A FUN GAME THAT IS INDEED WORKING! Royal is on the back burner AGAIN, THREE WEEKS LATER…..play ten minutes…..now it’s getting deleted for lack of use….I’m laughing my way to the bank, look at all I’ve saved not playing this! You gotta love it! I’m one who pays to play, but you lost my income, because of this huge game play flaw. Great graphics, great playing, all around fun. But you LOSE me. No play. No pay. Simple fact. I think I owe you an explanation. I simply will move on to something that is actually playable. I love watching adds if the reward is a great game as a afterward. But I don’t have the time or the patience to wait upwards of half an hour every ten minutes for a game, ANY game, no matter how fun it is. Such a shame. Great game…..not worth waiting for. Or paying for..JimCarmVersion: 12647
Absolutely delightful game but….This is an absolutely delightful and addicting game. I’ve downloaded it only a couple of weeks ago, but already played several hours on this and am on level 190 now. It has been fun.
1. However, the levels have gotten much harder and almost impossible to complete without power ups. And you get power ups only when you win levels. So there’s the catch 99. You can buy power ups but they’re extremely expensive at 300 coins each or more. Same thing with extending a level. Winning level gives you merely 20 or 30 coins. However, if you cannot finish the level, just adding five moves requires 900 coins, and if you still cannot finish it, it requires another 1900 coins. Wish those moves and power ups were a lot cheaper, or there was an ad supported way of getting more power ups or moves, like in angry birds.
2. You can win the levels and get some rewards, including breaking a pinata and getting half an hour or 15 minutes of infinite use of power ups. However, the game forces you to use them when right when it offers the rewards to you. If you don’t have 15 minutes or 30 minutes or an hour to play at that moment, and you want to use that reward later, you cannot do that. It just disappears. So you can claim it RIGHT THEN AND THERE, or just lose it even though you earned it. Doesn’t sound like a good strategy..RomanBuffaloVersion: 10055
Not what you signed up forI started playing based on an ad during another game. The actual game is nothing like what was in the ad. You’re not actually saving a king. I’m on level 828 and I can count on one hand how many levels there were to “save” the king. Very disappointing. The game isn’t terrible and has a nice concept. I appreciate varying levels of difficulty. The power ups and coins are terrible for the amount you need to play to get them. It takes 900 coins to buy a power up and/or new lives but you’d have to play almost 4 levels to get that many coins saved up. Also once you buy one power up, a second one in same game will cost you 1900. I did buy the Royal pass, waste of money and won’t be buying it anymore. It’s not worth the rewards you get and each day of pass you need to pass the equivalent number of levels to move on. For instance day 3 is 3 levels but to get to 25 you need to finish the first 24 days plus an additional 25 levels. I paid for this, it shouldn’t be that hard. The power up rewards isn’t worth it either. 2 bombs for 22 levels is ridiculous. Also the life regeneration takes wayyy too long. 30 minutes to wait for a new life is ridiculous. Make this game better…I’m one competition from removing it completely to play other games that offer more and are more true to what they represented in the ads..EverynicknametakensomadethisupVersion: 5355
Get your wallet outI have been playing Royal Match for a few weeks now. I don’t play daily because I get very frustrated with the gameplay. Graphics and sound are too notch, however the game is basically rigged. The number of moves you have are limited and differ at every puzzle. If you choose a “booster” that you have saved the game does not allow you to choose when your booster is used. It gives you the booster at the very start of the level. The problem is that many times you are forced to activate your booster right away because using the booster is the only move you can make. You just wasted the booster. It did not improve your situation at all.
Then as you run out of moves the game will give you 5 moves but it’ll cost you 900 coins. If you happen to need an additional move beyond the 5 given it will cost 1900 coins. It’s rigged to force you to spend money buying extra coins and lives.
I understand every developer deserves to make money but the constant pressure to purchase lives or coins makes the game frustrating to play. As a previous reviewer stated, you can lose 20 attempts in a row, then decide you’ll spend a few bucks for more lives, only to find you’ve miraculously completed the level with a super simple move. Do you want to succeed ? If so you’d better get out some cash because you’re going to need it..BRod22Version: 3981
Pay To WinAt first this game looked fun. But after a couple of levels you quickly start to realize there isn’t much skill involved at all, but more so luck. In order to win you’d need boosters and/or other assets to help win. I feel like this app is designed in a certain algorithm which helps you win a few rounds swiftly but then you hit a wall where, you barely get solid matches to clear a round. This ends up depleting your lives really quickly, forcing you to spend 1000 coins, and eventually lures people into spending actual money in the game. If you avoid giving in, you can eventually beat the round after 20 tries, then it does the same cycle all over again. This game does not feel like it’s in the players control whatsoever but more so of the developers. It’s also striking to me that in almost every game app i was playing on, I saw Royals Match adverts littered around on a day to day basis with Save The King commercials, when in actuality there’s like only 2-3 save the king missions i’ve played out of the 113 levels i’ve completed. Other than that, it’s a twist of Candy Crush. I don’t mind spending money on a game that actually deserves it. But if money is the key to winning then it destroys the whole point of playing it. I would much rather have a actual skill based game that have adverts every round than a game that relies on paying to win..MKGAMERGAMESVersion: 5887
Sued?It’s amazing you guys haven’t been sued yet or taken off the App Store. Forcing people to pay to “level up”. I’ve beaten super hard levels with less “moves” & less “power ups” yet I can’t get passed a hard level even with many power ups, extra moves, nothing. So when all of my coins are gone, all my power ups are gone, what you expect me to pay for more for you to just make me waste them again? Because you literally force us to use so many moves to get “little matches” of three or four that do nothing? Then by the time we make a dent we’re out of moves. How is that fair game? Want us to compete in the “competitions” but then purposely block us from succeeding in fair participation. I spent $.99 on a little booster pack or whatever & if I thought worth it I’d have demanded my whole less than a dollar back because it did nothing for me at the time then either. Worthless. It’s amazing how stuck on a level then come back a day or more later an then WHOOPS get passed that level magically like a fart in the wind. Never again will I play these types of unfair games. You get so many levels ahead then get blocked from moving forward. If you can’t help but purposely stop people from advancing then why even bother letting them play to begin with making them think they have a chance? Oh right. Greed & money..PattyPieDoodleVersion: 12303
Not As Ad, DuhI’m deleting this as of today but decided common courtesy dictates that I at least let the devs know why. I’ve yet had the opportunity to save the king whereas all of the limitless ads shown in other games shows many different ways to save the king and not this “Candy Crush” knockoff it still hasn’t given me the chance, so, here we are. I wouldn’t mind the match game so much if it at least gave me the chance occasionally to save the king but I’ve seen nothing and from a lot of other reviews on here I’m not alone. I had hoped that this would be the first game that didn’t use deceptive ads to get me to play but unfortunately it mirrors what seems to be the status quo. I don’t understand why game devs resort to this to get people to dl their games, stand by your game, be proud of it and not make people thinks it’s one thing when it is patently obvious it is not. It would have been nice to play the game I was misled into believing it was because it really looked to be a fun and playable game. I did per the devs response on other reviews dl the latest update my game is fully up to the current date and I have not once been given the chance to save the king or anything like it, it’s been nothing but a match game every single day. So with that being said, I’m deleting now..BlondemomeeVersion: 7888
Fun but costs too much to win.It was fun but like how most have stated you will either spend days or weeks on a level because you haven’t gotten lucky or have to spend way too much money. I spent way to much to get to only level 327 but got tired of spending money to uninstalled. Was fun but not worth the money or spending days or weeks on the same level because I won’t spend anymore money and haven’t gotten “lucky”. You might enjoy it but will quickly find that you need to bring out the credit card. Update: anyone who has played this game longer than a day knows that it is a pay to win. They say you can win without spending money that is a lie and simply not true. You will either spend a very very long time on a the same level or have to spend a lot of money. The developers are absolutely worthless. Their support does however (just as equally worthless) do respond 5 hours later so that is a plus. Game is crap plain and simple. It a pay to win game or spend days and hope they let you get lucky to beat a level. They’re worthless but they are not dumb they know how to get ppl to spend money is very clever too bad the game is garbage like the people who designed it. But oh well you’ll still play it and give them money..Flatbedder88Version: 12647
Loved it until inflation hit!I’ve really enjoyed playing this game and had it installed on both of my phones. I didn’t mind making occasional in-app purchases for extra coins so I could add 5 extra moves to a hard level or refill my lives when I wanted longer playing time until today. Today I noticed that the price and content of their in-app purchases are the same BUT they’ve increased the amount of coins needed for adding moves or refilling lives from 900 to 1,000 coins. So we’re paying and getting the same amount as before BUT getting less game play.
I would’ve been a lot less annoyed about the coin increase if they had been transparent and notified players of the change BEFORE players made an in-app purchase. The failure of this company to disclose the coin increase and wait for players to discover the decreased value of their purchase is underhanded and sneaky. Unless I discover that coins are more easily attained through game play making in app purchases unnecessary, once the coins I purchased are gone I’ll find a new game made by a different developer and delete the app.
I’ve only been playing a few months so I don’t know how often they pull this but for anyone considering downloading, BEWARE of making any in-app purchases!.LJWellbornVersion: 5761
Same as the other reviewsAs others have stated, the game can be fun - addictive even. But it is definitely rigged to make you spend money, and way too frequently. I miss the days where if a game or app did cost money, you had two options. Either a trial/limited version where you only got to use it for “X” amount of days before you purchased it, or a partially functional app that would fully unlock after purchase. Either way, it was a one time purchase, or at most a two-three tier purchase package with better features/ higher cost on each tier.
Now you have to pay for subscriptions, deal with ads, and constantly make in-app purchases to even play the game. In-app purchases should solely be used for the purposes of extra customization: skins, character upgrades, additional themes, etc. we should never have to spend money just to advance within a reasonable amount of time.
I understand that programming is a tedious skill, but these developers need to stop being greedy and slick. If you wanna make some serious money off of programming, how about you build alternate operating systems, or something of the sort. Stop trying to get rich off of simple time-passing games. Sheesh..Boggs0009Version: 5887
Pay to playAfter seeing this ad at least 1,000 times while playing other games, I gave up and decided to try it. At first I was pleased. No ads! And while the gameplay shown in the ads -- save the king from some awful fate in a short period of time -- is actually quite rare, as in 30 seconds once a day, some of the other puzzles were intriguing. But, after a couple of days you reach levels that aren't just challenging, they're impossible. Such as 171, that requires at least a dozen powerups to even have a chance at completing it. After blowing through most of the other puzzles rarely using any power ups at all, I hit 193, used every one of them, and after 250 tries deleted the game. It's a shame, they have a nice setup, but they lure you in for a bit and then make it clear it's just another Pay-to-play. I really wish these developers would just sell the game for a few bucks up front but I guess that model is dead. * edit Revised score from 3 stars to 1 after developer replied with a flat out lie that all levels can be beaten without boosters. This an unmitigated lie. Better to just ignore the less than favorable reviews than to lie to your customers — terrible PR decision, and whoever is handling these responses should be fired..BentleymrkVersion: 9293
ConflictedI enjoy playing this game, but am really frustrated by how few lives you get and how much it costs in coins to either get more lives or continue playing a game you’re close to winning. It makes no sense to me that it costs 900 coins to get 5 more lives, & costs the same 900 coins to only get 5 extra moves on a level. A lot of other games let you watch ads to gain lives or moves in a game. I find myself out of lives & unable to play a lot. I know this is y’all hoping I’ll pay$, but nah. I’m happy to watch ads or whatever, but that’s it. It’s also super easy to accidentally hit continue (gain 5 moves) & lose 900 coins on a level you meant to restart. It’s in the area where the play button usually is. It feels like you’re trying to trick people into wasting coins, in order to get the spending actual money. Seems shady.
I’d think 100 or so coins, or watching an ad should be enough to get a few extra moves.
There’s a Christmas match 3 game that’s similar to play & does things much better as far as gaining lives & extra moves are concerned. If it stays this way I’ll probably delete the app, even though I genuinely enjoy playing the actual game itself. Bummer..Megs2676Version: 5761
Falsely accusedToday I received a message from someone in customer support who FALSELY accused me of stealing coins. They claimed that Royal Match does not have advertisements populate in their app. That is a false statement because that’s all you get is advertisements throughout the game. If a customer click an advertisement that populate while playing Royal Match and want take advantage of the offers that will give the customer more coins for trying out the advertisement then why not. So if you would have review my purchases then you would have found that I make purchases regularly. Clearing purchasing coins was not an issues. False advertisements is illegal and not honoring what Royal Match Developer advertise for their clients or to the clients base who play the game is his honorable. I can prove advertisements is in the app and send screenshot. I take great offense to you attacking my Character and Integrity and insinuating a crime was committed. NEVER accuse a customer when you don’t have all the fact and NEVER make false statements about Royal Match advertisements. Especially when a customer can take a screen shot or video tape the advertisements. I’m very upset with the customer support person who sent that message. I took screenshots of the message for proof..Royal MatchVersion: 6960
Deleted!!!I deleted this app just now. Not because of the ads in the Royal Match game, but because of the extremely annoying ads they show in the other games. They are extremely obnoxious! Not only do your ads $uck, but they try to be as obnoxious as possible by playing the full 30 second ad, then it has an arrow that you click on that does another count down of 5 seconds before the “x” shows up to get out of the ad, but does it close once you click the “x”? NOOOOOOOO! It starts up another [email protected] 5 second count down and this cycle continues over and over and over until they finally let you get back to your game! I don’t know who you think you are, or why you think your ad is more important than everyone’s else’s, it it not! It is actually having the exact opposite effect. I hate seeing even your logo now. So, as much as I liked playing your game, I deleted it because of your lack of respect for MY TIME! I deleted it and will NEVER play your game again. I also don’t watch your ads anymore either. I don’t care how much longer it takes but I immediately swipe out of the game the second your ad shows up. So good for you, your greed will do you in. Great strategy, a-holes!.CheriscsVersion: 11384
Extremely enjoyable but…This game is addicting. Its fun, creative, upbeat…..but very relaxing and addicting…….however, regardless of what is stated here or in the game play support, this is the most expensive game I have ever played. Mind you I play all types, am an adult and quite logical. It’s easy to spend 10, 20 bucks to get through a hard level, then only have two or three turns until you have to spend again to move on. You could spend several hundred dollars just for a few hours play!!!! I am currently level 830, I see people at 4700 level?? Seriously? The amount of game time/rewards you get when buying coins is eaten up way too fast. 900 coins to continue failed, fail again it goes to 2900, then 3900, etc….you will burn through coins like nothing. No way I will continue to play and pay these outrageous sums. My gameplay includes using the hints!!! Its like it’s programmed to use up your items fast. Until the DEVS radically change the cost to continue on a level, its just not worth it. Unless others are cheating somehow or their is a secret trick to playing and never using coins. I don’t see that as possible. Sad because I give it 10 stars for everything else..GoldnpawVersion: 12043
Really?Ok so 1 ALL of the adds have little stories like do the match to save the king from a shark or something but you only do ONE of those per room thing 2 the plates are really difficult to beat without spending a lot of money on boosts Bc you don’t have enough moves 3 it costs a LOT to buy boots you have to spend 1900 for 3 hammers you don’t even have the option to buy 1 you have to buy three for almost 2k coins which coins are difficult to get and the cannons cost like 4k 4 every time I get on it’s not just super laggy but also it just freezes and my internet is completely fine any other app works but this one keeps freezing or kicking me off and 5 coins are difficult to earn and get unless your spending actual money on the game you only get like 50 coins per match you win and all of this together makes the game un-fun. And it’s just frustrating you have so little amount of moves to use :/ this was a waste of time EVER SINGLE game like this does this, where you think you get to do pulley things or do little stories of one you complete it you help something or you get to choose which item to fix which but it’s just a normal overprices game thing..ToastySalt29104Version: 9106
Where is the levels from the adsThis game is just like any other match three game except for the fact that the levels that are shown in the advertisements are nonexistent in the actual game, the power ups cost so much in game currency that you were literally forced to purchase them and then if you do try to purchase them they are so overpriced for such little amount of time for said power ups. This game is just a money grab buy a bunch of greedy idiots. Unless you have very deep wallets and tons of disposable income, of which I work very hard for my money don’t know about the rest of you, then go ahead and buy your way through the game you’re still not gonna play any of the levels as advertised. I get that games and game developers are trying to make money with their games but come on you’re being ridiculous with how expensive and overpriced your stuff is lower the cost of in game currency values on your power ups or if you’re going to make people spend as much money as you’re asking to buy with real money the power ups and make them permanent or at least not an hour of power ups for five bucks stop being so greedy.Spdrcr71Version: 7495
Not as it initially seemedPaid a few times for the royal pass, only to have superior power up combos literally taken from me so I end up losing that level and can never get back to where I was bc I’ve lost all my lives behind that and haven’t earned more lives as a result of this scheme. I will make the combo, use the touchscreen to engage that combo and it will force the simpler move instead which gives a result thats way less successful. I don’t have this issue with other games.
Also, there aren’t save the king levels- so stop advertising it. You may see one or two after literally almost 2k levels.
The game can be incredibly fun when it isn’t cheating you, but ridiculous and frustrating most of the time which makes me lose interest and go play other games. 900 coins for 5more moves/5 lives, and 12$ for prizes you never get to enjoy bc of the scheme of cheating wins from you- ESP when you’ve paid- is trash/unethical business practice, and if this continues after I’ve used what I’ve paid for, for this thirty days, I’m deleting it. Fix it! And I want all my stolen lives and wins back 😠..Zierra28Version: 6262
Glitches that aren’t in your favorI’ve been playing this game a while. Aside from the fact that it’s clearly rigged to make you spend money, it’s super glitchy and falsely advertised. Bonuses and unlimited lives disappear after no I claim them for no reason. I played thousands of levels before they finally showed a “save the Royal” level. They were fun and then mysteriously disappeared a few days ago. Now the lightning rush has mysteriously stopped working (keep in mind these two features are the ones with the most rewards). I also tested this with a friend to give them lives and when they opened the app on their phone it did t deliver the life until they’d burned through all their power ups. Like wth! That’s a blatant scam. Seems very odd that there are over half a million reviews on this app, mostly positive, but when you sort by most recent there are a ton of low ratings and bad reviews. Starting to feel like this game is a huge scam. I refuse to spend any money on it, so maybe that’s why it’s suddenly “glitching” on me. Oh, and it’s a candy crush rip off. I deleted that game right around the time I started feeling scammy vibes too..Sarahface81Version: 12491
Fun to begin withI started playing a few months ago, because of the ad for king’s nightmare.( which is pretty much non existent and you gain just a few coins if you pass it)The game was fun to begin with, some levels more challenging than the next, which is fine, but you definitely had to spend money to buy boosters. It is definitely a game of luck more than skill, as it really depends on how the blocks drop. Example…I needed 20+ blue squares to open the curtain and literally had none on the first drop and only a couple there after, I literally lost because of the lack of blue squares.
As the levels become harder with more “stuff” to remove it becomes frustrating because it takes numerous, and I mean over 20, tries to beat it. I have had to upgrade at least three times as it seems the developers weren’t ready with more levels. Each time they add more stuff to be removed, but they haven’t increased the number of plays. I used to enjoy purchasing the royal pass each month, but it takes so long to pass the levels now it isn’t even worth it anymore..Dramma10Version: 9535
Not One Board is About Saving the KingUpdate - I have now played all 1600 levels thinking somewhere will be the level that I get to save the king, only to see boards recycled to be a bit harder, and he new things to clear like gummy bears. The adding of rooms to the castle is cute and all, it just has nothing to do with the game in the end. If the items you needed to clear had something to do with the level (room) that could help make the game more interesting. Level 1600 is 35 rooms, in case you are wondering.
I do like this game and might have been willing to pay for the power up IF I was seeing boards that are in the ads. I am dropping my rating for this game, and will start looking for a new game to waist time on.
I have completed all 701 levels and 45 of the Royal League and have yet to come across any levels that look like the ads for this game. As much as I like this game, what I saw in the ad was why I downloaded this game. I will not pay to play so I can wait for lives to come back. However, joining a team is helpful as you can request live from them every 4 hours. Sad to say that this app is close to being deleted..SternrichardsVersion: 5502
Commercial is GrossI downloaded this only to leave a review. I get a commercial for this in my other games and, in the commercial, the king drowns and at the last minute when it’s too late for the lifesaver, he turns blue and goes limp. That is horrific and gross to see. Doesn’t make me want to download the game to play, I’ll delete it upon posting this 🤢.Peanut1941Version: 3637
DeceivingDownloaded game based on ad of solving how to get king out of a situation ... total false advertising..Bumble#1Version: 4104
Ads are ridiculousI agree with whoever said the ad was gross and kind of traumatizing. Hope you guys aren’t trying to sell this to kids. I too only downloaded this app to leave a review. Your ads are intrusive. I get there usually is a watch 10 seconds or whatever usually (even that is annoying), but this one takes you to the App Store automatically if you try to get out of it. There shouldn’t be mandatory watch full ads and then it takes you to the page whether you like it or not. If you are peddling this to kids and they are buying and that’s where all your sales come from - then shame on you. I can not believe Apple is allowing this app to have obvious doctored reviews when it treats us like piggy banks. Do better!.Tada TadaaaVersion: 4798
Semi fake adI am close to level 700. The game in the ad came up twice in the first 200 levels then never again. This is just an easier version of candy crush. If you like match 3 games then this is ok, but the ad is meaningless..JTfromTOVersion: 4647
No mini gamesIf you are getting this app for the mini games you saw in their ads - forget it! The developers will tell you they appear as you progress through levels, but that’s a lie! I’m at level 600 and I played 2 mini games within the first 20 levels and haven’t seen one since..Smaca3Version: 6081
Nothing like its AdsI downloaded this game after seeing its ads full of interesting mini games. The actual game is nothing like that.
It’s just another match-3 style game. It took the candy crush mechanic, tweaked it to make it less strategic, and globbed on a cutesy royal theme on it.
The end result is candy crush for a lower IQ audience.
There is a “mini game” every 20 levels or so, but it’s always the same one, not like the ads, and it sucks..611lbsVersion: 5761
Royal matchThis game, like so many others, is completely different from what is shown in the ads. It’s basically the same game as Gardenscapes and a whole host of others..and they’re all boring. Why don’t you just make a game like is shown in the ads? That’s the reason people respond to it..because that’s the game they wanted! People are going to download it, play it 3 or 4 times and then move on. Get wise and give people the game you advertise!.Bogus adbusterVersion: 12303
Fake adThere is no puzzle to save a king. Its fake. I already finish 52 levels. But when they add about this game to save king its all fake. I am deleting this game..Ford singhVersion: 3816
Sewage from the learning-impairedWhen one cannot find gainful employment from an institution intent on improving life on this planet, one will either A). pinch one’s nose, relinquish all morals, and go to slave away one’s life for the lemony incompetent @Ukg idiot factory or… B) work for the equally incompetent idiots behind this sewage. (both garbage). Either way, you’ll be deep-throating garbage ‘engineered’ by idiots who’ve slept their way to the podium for ‘creative director’ roles that those losers ‘researched’ into good ideas. This is all sewage..CrankinessVersion: 8538
Predatory false advertising that won’t even closeEven after waiting through the 50 second 3 layered ad, when finally presented the X button to close it, the as wouldn’t close and would just keep opening the store page for the abysmal excuse for a game with predatory microtransactions..Thurink28Version: 7495

Inaccurate AdsThis is one of those apps that advertise using ads that aren’t representative of actual game play. It’s essentially Bejeweled…you aren’t solving puzzles to save some Royal figure from burning in a fire or freezing to death..ThisisalfredlamVersion: 12491

Royal MatchGood grief. I can’t believe no one has written about how deceptive the adds are about this game. Unbelievable how much lying there is going on. Every single add shows only the mini games which are not at all like they show. Lame. I hate how you lie to people..LindaLou53Version: 12491

Good luckWhen I installed this game, I was tricked, it was nothing like the ad. I played anyway and I really liked it. But since the last update I hate this game, the boosters don’t help now they are breaking up where I don’t need help. It’s frustrating. Deleted..Pauly MacVersion: 5355
Get boring after a whileThey trick you to download the game because you see the king In trouble and you want to save him, but those games where you need to save the king are only a few. The rest is the same thing over and over. 😏.DiescabaVersion: 5122

GameI downloaded this game because I thought it looked fun trying to save the king. But you only get that until level 100. After that you never get to save the king again. That was the only reason I downloaded this game. Not keep8ng it.99999999999efddfjgyyVersion: 4902
False advertisingDownloaded based on game I saw on ad..Unknown one 1111Version: 12647
False advertising 😤Cute game but giving it only 2 stars because I’m tired of match games that only get you to building rooms. I only downloaded for the levels shown in ads and you next to never get to play those. Shame on the designers for such deceptive advertising. Apparently other people who have downloaded this game and gotten to high levels said same thing so glad I didn’t persevere to level 600 before realizing this. Will be deleting, sorry to the team I joined but I’ll just go play Candy Crush to satisfy my match addiction..1004nancyVersion: 12491
Completely false ads.All of the ads show that you have to do something using your brain to finish the level and save the king. Nope. Just another mindless match 3 of the same color or shape. Nothing different than ANY other matching game. Save the time, don’t download the game. I did and now am deleting it. One star only because I have to leave a star rating..Merc100makerVersion: 12647
The ads for this game are TerrificThe reality is boring..BrotherIanVersion: 12491

False publicityThe publicity in the add are false. The good game they advertise are not in the real game….Fredmtl77Version: 12491
Worst case of false advertising I've ever seen. So blatant!So, I play a bunch of Angry Birds games, some which bribe me to watch ads, seems like most are for this game. Now, the one honest thing about them is depicting this as a Match 3 game. But Match 3 games got old and tired with the first Bejeweled clone, and it seems like a favourite game type to make into tiny kill-some-time games, so I always pass. But this...
They would show a King in some perilous situation - the most common being a slowly moving wall of spikes closing in on the trapped King - where a Match 3 obstacle lies between him and safety - in this case the King has the spikes on one side and the Match 3 field on the other, you have to clear columns away for him to move away from the spikes. Or he needs to escape over a bridge, but a Match 3 field is rising under it, raising the bridge. Now THIS seemed like an interesting variant! And they often show a collection "which one is next", all thumbnails showing the King in danger next to a Match 3 field.
But, a Match 3 rip off implies dishonesty, I didn't want to add this to my iOS account (once "bought", forever owned, I can never remove it from my account), and they always have incompetent morons playing, clearly meant to annoy you into "I can do better", but actually communicates to me "This game is probably no fun, just frustrating and annoying, you'll get harder puzzles which will frustrate you like this guy". So I got it for a virtual phone, in BlueStacks, to check my suspicions.
What we ACTUALLY get is a boring standard Match 3 game, no King in sight. And they slowly add more and more annoying complicated functionality, thinking that the challenge makes it more fun when it only makes it more frustrating and annoying. (This item you have to match next to it. This one you need to match next to it twice, THIS one you must attack with supers, meaning you have to hope and pray the game gives you the combinations to earn supers, especially when you have almost no normal spots with which to earn them. Hope and pray? Where's the strategy in THAT? The APPEAL of this style of game is strategically figuring out when and where to make combinations to not mess with future combinations). And it's timed (or rather, you have to finish levels in a certain amount of moves). Limits adds stress to playing. NO FUN! Eventually they compound the annoyances - sorry, they probably consider them "challenges". You have to destroy (match) 100 green pieces - not ANY pieces, only green - to lift a blockade of pieces you can only attack with powerups. Or they put a challenge out of reach, meaning you need rockets or helicopters, then always get rockets facing the wrong way and helicopters target the easy targets. And do ALL that matching in under 30 moves, so impossible you use powerups faster than earning them. This soon becomes Pay To Win: you run out of moves then have to pay disgusting amounts of in-game coins to get a measly 5 more moves - more with each continue - until you run out of coins and need to buy more with real money.
Then, once in a rare while THERE'S the King! In a bonus level. But, oops, his peril has about nothing to do with the Match 3 field. And bonus levels are usually light easy fun. Nope, instead of the quite manageable challenge that offers satisfaction from the ads, you get "Match 100 of this one piece we hardly placed any of (again, hope and pray the game doesn't screw you with providing enough pieces and close enough) in 1 minute". King is isolated, like in a burning room above the game field, no contact or interaction. If you actually beat the exceedingly annoying challenge, it gives you a fire extinguisher, which magically douses the room, and the King looks happy. Whoopee.
Lately, some ads include puzzles connecting water pipes, some with no Match 3 field at all! I never saw any such puzzles, no water pipes, and I'm pretty sure I got past Level 200, before I ground to a halt on Pay To Win levels! I'm curious to try these levels! The game in the ads looks interesting, I want to play the game in the ads! I'm happy several reviews have mentioned the same thing, I'm disappointed a ridiculous number of people 5-starred this garbage so its score doesn't properly reflect what a piece of crap this is. If only they knew what they were missing. I downloaded this finally just to leave this review - shame we can't review apps we know anyway without getting them - then delete it. PLEASE mark Helpful all reviews mentioning the false advertising so they become more visible to alert newcomers!.Niceguy169Version: 12491
Not as advertisedAds show games where you’re helping the King escape, but that is not what you get when you download the app. It’s just a basic match 3 or more to clear the board, which isn’t what I expected..LovefamlVersion: 12491
Have downloaded just to reviewAds for this game pollute a different game that I play. Incessant and ugly advertising earned it this rating. Loathe it with a passion. Now that I’ve reviewed it I shall delete it from my device. Good riddance!.DanySweetVersion: 12491
Long Playable DemoExpected yet another pay-to-play match game and was not disappointed. You can play for a few days then it’s “clear a million obstacles in 8 moves -or- buy your way out of a jam…”

Not bad, but don’t waste your time.The game is slick, light-weight, and very well made. The programming is excellent. The game play, however, is the same stultifyingly boring candy crush match three that has been done a million-plus-infinity too many times, was horrible the first time around, and the skill of the developers doesn’t compensate for this. This game is a sad waste of time, energy, and talent, and is so very, massively, terminally, disappointing, because so much more was possible if the dev team had considered thinking outside the box. And why, considering the programming skill that went into the actual game, are the ads for it so abominably bad?.The ~kayt~Version: 12197
Royal matchStop your adds. They are dawn out and repetitive...
Leave me alone. I don’t like games like these. I spend most of my limited time waiting for your horrific sadistic adds to pass. Frankly I don’t have the desire to pay just to get rid of your adds. Games like these should be banned. And you say a 4 year old should enjoy watching a person die over and over?.L0llaL0llaVersion: 12197
