Royal Match Positive Reviews
9/10 because…Overall this game is what it says it is. No ads, no mtx. There’s just one thing they don’t show; the save the king levels are once every 10 or more levels, like they think it’s a reward for you but it’s actually just lack of development on their end (just being honest). The no ads/mtx is really nice though. Playing a full level with no ad interrupts, moving to the next with no ads and not getting mtx deals thrown in my face every level I can’t win has been absolutely wonderful. That all said those ads you put out where someone’s incapable of completing the level, that one that makes everyone think they can do better than the ad definitely, right? I understand showing someone the first few levels good sequences but after 20 levels I don’t need your help finding matches. Put an option in to turn help off please, it kinda gets in the way when I’m looking for matches myself, eg it tried to suggest me making a 4 piece square when I had a 5 piece straight line for the best power up in front of me. I guess it’s not so much that it’s in the way, more that it’s flawed and overall useless if it can’t suggest to you what the actual best match is currently present onscreen..Hoppyninja667Version: 19371
Not like the ads show.Yes, it’s fun. And yes, there are no ads. But it bothers me a lot that with all of their bragging their own ads show something different than their actual game. I have played over 800 levels, and I have yet to be required to create a path to light a fluid out or balls, drop or gas escape, even though all of their advertisements in other places shows specifically those types of scenarios.
You do make matches and in that respect it is very similar to dozens of other match three games plus excellent graphics and no ads. And about every. Levels there is a special kings nightmare. Limited amount of time to complete a task to save the King. Those nightmare levels do end up with some thing like breaking a glass or pulling a lever or cutting a rope, but in no case is any of that actually going through the matched items and releasing fluids or gases. If you make the desired number of matches, a pair of scissors or a hammer magically appear and complete the rescue. That’s quite different from the ads!
So I have to ask? Why aren’t they showing the REAL game in their ads and why DON’T they add challenges that they obviously think will entice people to download their game?
Again, it’s a very nice game but since their main selling point in most of their ads is that they have no ads within their game, I think it’s a little hypocritical for them to display in their ads something different than what you are going to download..Bud1057Version: 15160
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
Over all pretty goodOver all Royal Match is very fun. I love playing it and I do recommend it if you like candy crush. Candy Crush was one of my favorites but now Royal Match has taken over me liking Candy Crush, but there are things I wish Royal Match would have. 1. Change your profile name more than once. So I change my profile name and didn’t realize that you could do it once I was mad when I found but part of it was my fault for not reading it but I would like this to change please. 2. Royal match is very fun and teaches you strategies and techniques in your future life if you are younger. If you are an adult playing a little Royal Match will help you take your mind of your job and can reduce some stress too. 3. I wish you could give coins, power ups, and other stuff to other people but that’s okay. 4. If you are bored and have nothing else to do I recommend this game. Royal Match is good for road trips, when your bored, something fun to do and al kinds of other stuff. Other than the fact that you can’t change your name again (which I would be very happy if it got fixed) I think Royal Match is a five star game even if you don’t like games I still recommend it!.Would like you guys to fixVersion: 18369
Fun but come on with the adsI’ve been playing this game for at least a year or two and have played 1000+ levels. The animations and flow of the app are very smooth and i’ve seen very few bugs, plus it’s one of the only ad free mobile games i’ve seen. BUT the ads FOR the game make me a bit angry. I’ve been thinking that maybe this totally different mode that’s advertised would eventually be added, but it really doesn’t seem to be planned to release. And i know there’s the occasional levels where you’re on a timer and have to “save the king” but it’s still not even close to the same as the ads… it’s just a timed level with a scene playing at the top, instead of matching the blocks actually DOING something (ie digging a tunnel that liquid flows thru like in one of the playable ads). Additionally, the OTHER kinds of ads that are clearly just paid celebrity cameos where they don’t even know anything about the game are very irritating. Filmed on a mobile phone reading from a script that they clearly read 5 seconds before recording. Looks horrible.
The game itself seems so polished and professional but every ad for it i’ve seen is quite the opposite. Its still a good game regardless, but it’s hard not to lose a good bit of respect for it due to these issues..Monkeylandyeah🐵🐵Version: 16638
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
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
Ads are totally misleading, also watch your walletI have been debating about whether to review the game, but many of the things I would say have already been covered. Then I saw a new ad for the game that’s really over the top. The celebrity claims to “fact-check” the game’s ads, but he completely avoids the question of whether the ads are representative of game play. They absolutely are not. What’s shown are the Kings Nightmares, which you encounter about every 10 levels or so. They also totally misrepresent the difficulty of those levels, making it seem like the animated finger is just stupid. However, they often have two screens worth of crap to be cleared or don’t give you enough turns to clear it all, with hard-to-break things covering other things that need to be cleared. Several ads show “select your next level”, which if that ever happens, I did not get to at level 175+.
I gave it three stars because it could be a good game - it’s very cute and it’s got lots of different types of puzzles, competitions and “home renovation”. However, remember that while they don’t charge for it, and they don’t have ads, they are being supported by it somehow! I believe is by convincing you that you can win, and then cranking things up to the level where you cannot win without purchasing aids..JohnSFromMDVersion: 15782
Actually a fun gameI downloaded royal match as a joke because I thought it looked stupid, but it’s been weeks and I still have it and play it pretty much every day💀 Literally now seeing the king and/or the butler actually makes me happy, and for what? when did that happen?? This is such a mom-game too, so that was an even bigger reason for why I downloaded as a joke, yet here I am😭 But yeah, 10/10, it’s satisfying and enjoyable, no adds, you only have to wait like 20 minutes or so for lives to refill BUT IF YOU JOIN THOSE LIKE TEAM THINGS YOU CAN ASK FOR LIVES, BUT IF YOU HELP SOMEONE GET A LIFE, IT DOESNT COST YOU ONE OF YOURS, i think that’s dope. Anyway, yeah, the only times that “no ads” become an issue for me is when I’m really stuck on a level (ahem, level 29 ((was literally stuck for days🪦💔))) and don’t have enough coins to play on to be able to complete the level, but since there are no ads, I can’t just watch some ads to get more coins. But all in all, I actually love the game and have been recommending it to people because it is just really easy so you don’t have to use TOO much brain power yk? AHH IT’S ACTUALLY REALLY NICE OK. IT STARTS OUT KINDA SLOW BUT THE FARTHER ALONG YOU GET, THE MORE REWARDS YOU RECIEVE AND THAT IS ALSO SUPERRR SATISFYING.Grassiest grassVersion: 15864
Thank You Developers!Once upon a time I really liked Bejewled. It was vibrant, quick moving, and a great way to take out frustrations. This is not why I downloaded Royal Match, but once I did I realized it was Bejeweled cubed. So, I love this game, though I do agree with some other reviewers that the regular levels versus the hard levels and super hard levels is strange; some times it takes me days to pass a regular level and only one try to pass a super hard or hard level. 🤷🏻♀️ Now, if I had reviewed this before now I would have removed a star for the reason I downloaded this game, and that is the mini games called King’s Nightmare. Boy was I disappointed when I payed one for the first time. Booorrring!!! Not only that, but you get coins, and not many, for playing and nothing else. They were not as advertised, and at first I felt a bit cheated, but I do so enjoy Royal Match, so I learned to live with the lie. Today, however, I reached a King’s Nightmare and I so loved it! It was the reason I downloaded this game. It was there, in front of me, finally! Thank you, thank you, thank you to the developers for making this change. I love it! More please! And more often! I could play them all day. 😁.MysticTwilight92677Version: 15285
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
Super fun gameI love this game and I’ve been playing it for a while now. I’m on level 6601 or something like that. Some things I’ve noticed are that all the ads I see for the game are not what it is. I mean you rescue the king half way through each update, but it’s not like the ads show. You don’t get to pick levels to rescue the king. I think I’ve mostly saved him from a dragon or getting hit by a train. None the less the game is addictive and can be very frustrating at times. I agree with another review that you can spend days on a supposed normal level and then sometimes get through a hard or super hard level faster. Not always though. It has definitely gotten harder the farther I’ve gotten through the game. I love the super light ball, that’s very helpful. I hate that I can get it and lose it before I even get a chance to really use it. I wish that when you win 30 minutes of game play that you could save it for another time if you want. I know that in some cases you can save it or not open it until ready but when you play the game you will know what I mean. This game is addictive and fun..Pittie pittie princessVersion: 16439
Typical match-three type gameUpdate: I still play to kill some time. However I woke up to a $6 charge from this game that supposedly happened at 4am while I was sleeping. No I don’t have kids. Watch for fraudulent charges from the game !!!
It’s just a typical match-three type game as the main focus. There are cool tiles and power-ups you can use — when you get them. It does do a few things nicer than other similar games in the way of the occasional mini game or special weekday and weekend things to get you bonus coins or powerups, etc. I’ve been playing for several months and have unfortunately purchased a few of the cheap packs in that time… mostly out of sheer frustration. Once you reach a certain level, it becomes less and less fun and more of a chore and an exercise in frustration…… unless you want to spend gobs of coin to get beyond a level. And the “regular” levels vs. “hard” and “super hard” levels means nothing after a few hundred levels. It’s fun for the first little while, and then it’s a time sink for when you’re waiting around and have nothing better to do. Now once I *finally* beat a level, the next level is just as frustrating. There’s no chance of beating 99% of higher levels in one try now, and I refuse to spend another penny on this game..DonniesitoVersion: 19155
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
I Feel Guilty When King Robert DiesI mostly play Black Desert Mobile and Star Trek Timelines but I also like this game. Been playing only a couple weeks. The graphics are pleasing and gameplay is fun. But I hate that you are limited on moves and you can’t clear the board. And you can’t play long before you run out of lives. I have yet to get to saving King Robert. Which brings me to why I’m mentioning Star Trek. I’m often watching ads in it for freebies and the ads I see most are for Royal Match and every few it has a try me where I try to save King Robert. About half the time I fail and what really frustrates me is that the one with the pipe and water pops up iTunes Store in the middle of the tryme and it’s timed so poor King Robert is doomed! It wouldn’t be so bad if it was just that I wasn’t fast enough but it really kills me that this error kills him! Shame on you, Developers! Please fix this! After reading the comments I’m thinking about deleting but that won’t help me in Star Trek because I like the freebies. I’m 65 years old and I rarely have money for in game purchases so I’m just playing a bit and I put it aside rather than spending money on game currency. I’d be much more interested in game currency if you would quit with the ridiculous life limit..DanniStoriesVersion: 16638
Fun, but…This game is so fun and addicting. I play a few times a day and love the gameplay. My bf and I both play and so we like to compete against each other and try to beat one another in the side missions. That being said, it’s not consistent when it comes to the Kings Nightmares and Bonus Levels. I’m on level 761 and I get a Nightmare once or twice a week, but have never received a Bonus Level. My bf on the other had, occasionally gets a Nightmare and will get a couple Bonus Levels per day. I’m in the fan group on fb, and this seems to be an issue that everyone has. The inconsistency is unfair to players. I messaged support and they basically blew me off by saying they try to make a unique experience for all players. I tried to explain that unique is good, but it’s unfair when it’s that far off with every player. Especially when a Nightmare only gives you 50coins and the Bonus Levels give 500+. It seems silly and ridiculous to complain about, but it is annoying to see how inconsistent the bonus levels are for each player. There are others that claim there are other types of bonus levels that neither me or my bf have ever seen. I wish the support team was more “supportive” and willing to fix the issues, and less unbothered..CaptJessSparrowVersion: 13626
It’s only fun for so longSo fun and addicting to the start and constantly feels awarding. The further you get into it though, the more you’ll learn that the only means of passing a level is predetermined at the beginning of the match by what’s available to you and what falls onto the board going forward. Most of your “super hard” marked levels are pretty easy and can be gotten through after a few tries. Same with the “hard” levels. However the standard levels for some reason are set up so the odds are against you and if you don’t make the right move at the beginning you will fail the level and lose the Super Light Ball powerup you just unlocked.
If I could change anything about this is for the game to allow us when to use certain things like unlimited hearts, or the super light ball instead of just making you use it right away. The super light ball is something I would pay a small sum to have in every game with me and stand a chance at progressing in these later levels without the fear of losing them right away. It would increase the longevity of the game and my willingness to commit to it at a time. Instead you’ll spend upwards of 20 hearts just trying to get past 1 level that’s not even marked as “hard”..Aworkman_13Version: 18983
Its a good game butThe game Royal match is pretty good but they’re saying like you get to play like fun puzzles and stuff and it’s really similar to homescapes or something like that and the only reason I downloaded this app is because it was bragging about no adds and really good quality and really fun like puzzles you can play, and I was like tired of adds then so I thought it would be nice to play a fun game that has no adds and stuff. And when I download it was expecting that you would start on like level one but instead I was come to my surprise any other game you mom or dad or grandma or grandpa would play then you would add to the castle and then when you done it would say “ Royal Match “ so the game is alright I'm not trying to be rude or anything but the game is kind of lying to you about the puzzles game I and I have never stumbled across a puzzle game and at first I was like just playing hoping a puzzle game would show up every once and a while and you would like have to watch an add for it (like any other game) but no you go on and on and on and on and on and on and on to each other game mode idk if its just me that’s not getting the games but I haven’t stumbled across any puzzles YET.LolbombytuecreeperVersion: 15864
Fun but not like the adsI kept seeing adds pop up everywhere for this game so I got it. It’s really fun but there are a few things that aren’t the best. For one, all the adds show fun games where you have to rescue the king and nothing else. On the actual game, you can only do those like, every 20 or so games. The real games you do are just matching 3 in a row like all those other ones you see. Another thing is that they advertise it as “not pay to win” though it certainly is. They don’t force you to buy stuff, but if you’re stuck on a level, you have to chose between giving up which results in you loosing a life and if you do this 5 times, you can’t play for half an hour or so unless you pay for more lives, or using your coins to get more moves, but again, if you use them all up, you have to pay for more. One thing I do really appreciate though, is that there aren’t adds. On most games I have adds pop up every 10 seconds and it drives me crazy, so again, thanks to the creators for not including them. In all though, Royal match is a great game I would totally recommend to everyone!.Strawberry lover5Version: 17854
Still a fun gameI enjoy playing the game and have gotten to advanced levels. There are not many bonus levels or Kings nightmare levels. Only maybe twice a week and I play daily. The higher levels are extremely difficult and will take many tries on each level to pass. This is where the game makes a ton of money. You get frustrated and end up paying for coins. The coins will be gone very fast though. I would advise not spending the money unless they have a really GOOD flash sale. They have a lot of so called flash sales but the rate is still high. You can join a high scoring team but the problem is the same. Everyone will hit a threshold and not be able to pass levels at a certain point. You all can still win the levels on your own but it takes a long time and that’s how the game makes so much money. I understand the payout must be huge in terms of what players might spend. Maybe the developers could compromise for those who don’t want to spend? Watching ads for coins? There is no way to get extra coins except by beating levels (which is hard to do without extra coins) or if your teammates happen to buy certain bundles you get a small coin bonus. Something to consider..Electrofan07Version: 14644
LuvI really enjoy this game , but I just believe 900 coins is to much you buy coins it doesn’t last long because you spend so many, also y ya ou get a lot of arrows but not the other power ups you always get just one it so hard to get but you constantly spending money to keep coins that are very high and hardly no power ups don’t get me wrong the game is a lot of fun , and it’s free it’s just so expensive! You all also have the lighting ball but you have beat so many levels to get once u get it , u play the game u lose ! And have to start all over that’s wrong , I feel if you beat the levels to get a lighting ball you should start my game with one if I win I win if I lose I lose, don’t start the puzzle with out one , cause you work very hard to beat these levels to get one so unfair , I really enjoy the game but coins are high I constantly need to buy more it is so expensive!!!!! I can’t get my treasure from the team treasure I always buy coins they have the nerve to tell me no team contribution I can’t get my items I am about to delete this game I always play , it is already hard to get power ups cause it is expensive!!!!.NepateriaVersion: 15864
UPDATE: no interest in game anymoreThis game was good at first but the higher you go the more I’m seeing the same crap that made me lose interest in Candy Crush. Power ups aren’t created when they should be, funny business with what SHOULD happen when you make a move (moves opposite direction). Never happened in lower levels. But they count on you thinking oh I must have done something wrong.
Ok so after enjoying playing for a long time I may have to quit because the billing is often wrong. I request the 1.99 stuff twice and it shows up billed as 2.99. NOT COOL!!!! I am in the mid 3500 level but will have to delete game because of this. SO DISAPPOINTED !!! I have noticed that the game does NOT create the expected power ups when it should. Mostly with the ones created with 5 in a row but also the rockets. What’s up with this? I am currently on level 1071 A game that is fun and not frustrating! At first it seemed like it was going to be too easy but it has been getting more challenging. Good graphics and not slow. And enough extras to keep it interesting. And NO ADS! Thank you! BTW, what level do I have to get to before I get my castle with areas completed built for real? :-).XanthusbobVersion: 16209
Good game, needs a couple of tweaksI enjoy this game, but find some levels to be exasperating, and some are simply a matter of playing the level until the right powerups form; there’s no way to win them without sheer luck.
A couple of things that would be useful: a final stats display of f what was left when asking if you want to play on or try the level over if you didn’t catch what goals are left before your final move, it’s difficult to make an informed decision whether the 5, 15, 30 moves they’re offering are worth the effort. Also, it’s easy to mis-swipe, so a rollback-last-move option would be helpful (Water Sort does this well, where you have 5 free rollbacks and Then watch an ad if you want 5 more). Also, if the cube drop could be adjusted to favor more powerup-generating drops on levels designated “super hard,” That would be useful. The “super hard” levels are basically—make that literally—impossible to win without the right powerups.
It’s a good game overall, and strikes a decent balance with ads versus gameplay. I recommend it, even without the suggestions I have for it..Rwt1138Version: 16638
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
Love this game BUTI LOVE this game, it's kinda addicting, BUT there are a few things I have issues with.
#1 and my biggest issue is the cost to get more moves.. 900 coins for 5 moves is a an astronomical amount! Especially when you only need 1 move. I think 100 coins PER extra move is more than enough. With the cost of power ups being between 1 and 3 thousand coins it just doesn't seem right to have moves be just as expensive. #2 is the game play from the ads, I didn't get a kings nightmare that played like the ads until over lvl 2000, that is very disappointing, those types of gameplay are fun and challenging! It's what made me WANT to play the game! #3 I also agree with other comments about the difficulty lvl ESPECIALLY when you have unlimited lives. Get through 1 or 2 lvls and then you are stuck until time runs out no matter what difficulty that lvl is. Other than that I do LOVE the game and I do pay real money to play "longer" which I don't mind, I just wish the gameplay was like the ads for the game and the unfairness of the cost for extra moves. I hope you will take that into consideration and maybe change the price of extra moves. Thank you in advance.Jenn13495Version: 15285
Not the same as the adsThey always say don’t judge a book by its cover. That’s what I did, and I thought would be a great game because you could enter all of these things and then when I download it oh boy, I don’t even know where to start. It’s fun until it gets boring. You can run out of points really fast especially on the super high level levels like 132 that one’s hard also decorating the rooms are pretty boring didn’t really give me any motivation. But I thought you could like choose when you’re high Kings nightmares or when he was trapped inside like a water cage but you can’t it just chooses when to do it. I like how it doesn’t have ads like a lot of other games but yeah. I would recommend if you like on a car ride but when you’re sitting at home on your board, it’s not really fun there’s not really any motivation behind it or anything to get at Laurel crest are fun but they’re super hard harder than the other one goes that’s what I dislike any you should change this. I just hate how you run out of coins that you can play with really fast and it cost 900 coins to do it again and then 1900 to play it again it is such a annoying thing..Lils e!:)@@@$$##Version: 16638
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
Be Ready to Pay…EventuallyThe game is fun and it is as advertised. Anyone saying otherwise has a chip on their shoulder. Obviously, not every level will be the King’s Nightmare. That’s a special bonus that you get after achieving certain milestones. You can replay it as many times as it takes to win without losing a life. The problem I have with this app is that the level difficulty jumps around from boringly easy to super hard without warning. In the early stages, they give you plenty of opportunities to get free power-ups. You WILL need to use the power-ups as some levels are simply impossible to beat without them. Eventually, you will have to pay a lot of money to keep having fun. This disgusting business model needs to end. Someday, developers will realize that most people would rather pay upfront for an app they love than get nickel & dimed to death for power ups that don’t even work that well. Consider making an app with a free trial period of about 10 days, then charge a small fee or subscription. I’d be much happier spending a nominal $1.99 per month than spend $2.99 on power ups once and then deleting the app for trying to hustle me..EbertofGamesVersion: 17549

Royal Match Negative Reviews
Trust me if I could give negative ratings, I WOULDI hate this game more than anything! Mainly because of all the adds, your game says that it is kid friendly and for everyone, but in the adds there are kings dying from gas, sewage, kings getting swallowed whole by snakes, and much more. Whoever invented this game must adore torture which the owner deserves. However, you are also making celebrities make these adds so you can get more people to play, but honestly stop because kids are already traumatized by your adds and plus the more people play, the more people get mad at your game!!!! And I spend 25 minutes a day watching these dumb adds. On the other hand, even if you had adds with no violence or traumatizing stuff, just you saving the king, you would still be lying because when I started playing it is literally a rip off of candy crush but worse. Another thing that I hate is the the levels are not organized where first it is easy, then a little hard, then hard, then expert, they are all over the place so when I am bad at the game, you give a frustrating! To the people reading this review, even though there are a lot of five star reviews, at least three quarters of those reviews have one of these problems. If you want my opinion, that if you really want a popular game, make a game nobody has invented, instead of stealing an idea from an actually successful app. Also fix the games glitches and make it kid friendly, while it being actually fun..𝚑𝚒 𝚍𝚘𝚐𝚐𝚒𝚎Version: 15631
Way too easy, average mobile adsI know you guys are getting bloated with ads on this game recently, and while some of the things they show and say in the ads are true, it’s not 100% accurate. believe it or not there aren’t any ads, usually when mobile ads say this it’s lying. The game is in fact a matching game as well, on the false side though, this game has NOTHING to do with saving the king from fire or drowning and what not, almost EVERY mobile ad has this concept of being stressed out trying to save the king and what not, and it’s a really interesting concept, but no mobile games actually stand true to it. And I really don’t know why, are liquids just too hard to program? If half the people download your game because of this stressful concept, why not just make it the actual game? Also I don’t how this game makes revenue if it doesn’t have ads, maybe I didn’t poke around the game long enough to notice any in app purchases but whatever. Another thing that they said in the ads that wasn’t true was how hard it was, no it is not hard at all, the special match things are way too broken and easy to get. Overall I feel like mobile games now a days have 0 creativity and no unique ideas, and they are all the same, royal match isn’t a “unique” “difficult” or “stressful” experience, it’s your average matching game, would not recommend!.CometReviewerVersion: 16439
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: 19155
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
Royal Pain!I give up. Not like the adds. I’ve played hundreds of levels, only to rescued the King twice, is ridiculous! Nothing to buy? Only if you want to move along. Don’t waste your time or MONEY. I downloaded this game mid-July 2023, and got scammed for $15 bucks. They also trick you. I’ve accidentally selected continue after winning a level (after paying a couple of bucks for more coins). After you lose an hand, you’re given the option to spend 900 coins for five more moves. Don’t do it. Go around again, and the game will add five more move for a total of 10. Keep going around until the max which is 35 more moves. After around level 200, spending another 900 coins won’t do it. You’re sooo close. Spend another 1900 coins usually does it. You only win a few coins if you win a round. The adds say, ‘aren’t you tired of playing a game that’s nothing like the adds?’ Well, this game is nothing like the adds. Out of playing hundreds of levels, I only saved the king twice, meaning trying to rescue the king, so far, has only been offered twice! For the developer: stop with the misleading adds. No one is saving the king, unless after you’ve spent $50 bucks in coins to get to whatever level we see saving the king like your misleading adds show. Make ways to earn coins besides the few dozen coins you win if you win a level, after you just spent over 9000 coins you bought at $7.50!.Drc3davidVersion: 18369
Not like the ads showIt'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..Hate this game🤬Version: 16209
Scummy algorithms ruin amazing gamesHad this game since all the way back when Ryan Reynolds was promoting it. I’ve loved it until about 6 months ago, when I noticed it got markedly harder. Turns out, after some research and seeing some other reviews, that the devs decided to stealthily turn this into a pay-to-win. App itself is free with no ads, but if you win too much without spending money, the boards become literally unwinnable. It’s like the game is actively thwarting your strategy and then “teasing” you once you run out of turns, showing a board that would obviously win in one more turn if you were to use coins. I tried out a theory and I was very alarmed at what I found. I had been stuck on a level and literally tried to beat it 30+ times. I then went and got the lowest pack of JUST COINS, and the next game?… finished the board in under 10 moves. Kept winning with easy boards for about 20 lvls then came to an impasse again. Tried about 10 times. Did it again. Won like crazy again.
This algorithm is designed to get you addicted to the game then slowly bleed as much money as possible from players by making you pay to keep going, without blatantly saying that. I actually thoroughly enjoyed this game for years, but I refuse to give greedy devs money when they think they’re being slick.
They aren’t..JojomusiqsowleVersion: 19371
It’s a money grab for the developersI’ll agree when you first play this game, it’s awesome! Now that I’ve got into the higher levels, I’ve spent A LOT of money for extra coins to use to get a few more turns to beat levels. You’ll notice it more and more as you increase in levels. Other players have to agree with me that the developers of this game purposely put in levels that are near impossible to beat within 5 tries. At that point you need to rely on extra lives to try and beat the level. If you don’t have a good team to ask for lives, you’re stuck purchasing coins to pass levels you’re stuck on. Sure every game on the App Store is a subscription or pay as you go app. I don’t have a problem with that as people put a lot of work into developing apps and making sure they are up to date. I feel this particular developer prey on the people who are not the best at games like this especially if they are a part of a team that are competing for rewards. At the very least lower the amount of coins it takes to get the extra 5 moves or have special days where you discount it from 900 coins to 500 coins for 5 or plus moves to try and beat the level.
I invite the developers to reply to my review here and debate my stance. I won’t hold my breath or waste my time waiting though, I haven’t seen the developers of this game respond to other reviews on here..DrumGuy68Version: 18037
The ads lieThe ads lie about everything. In the ads we can see King Robert getting himself into trouble all the time and needing us to rescue him. But in the actual game he is in no danger and the game is boring. The ads also say the game is addicting, but I get tired of it after like five minutes of playing. the ads say the game has great graphics, but the graphics are really not that great. They’re ok. If you really want a fun, addicting matching game, you should play project makeover. Project makeover has amazing graphics and has no ads (unless you watch an ad to get a free thing). Also, once you reach level 45, you can connect with your friends and join a clique a.k.a. a group. After playing a while, you will have your own character to dress up, your own room to decorate, and your own pet, too! Project makeover is actually addicting. All you have to do is reach level 45. Before that you’re just figuring out how the game works and learning with all the buttons do. I guarantee if you download project makeover, you won’t regret it! It doesn’t do you any harm so you might as well try it. I’m not being paid to say these things, and I don’t work for project makeover. I just really like the game and love to connect with my friends on there. royal match doesn’t let you connect with anyone on there. Project makeover is just better in my opinion. Thank you for reading my review. ❤️.JuJu Bean 123479Version: 16209
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
Hmmm something doesn’t seem rightLevel 5390 and this has happened on many occasions throughout my time playing. It’s probably time to take another break from this game. I used a double bomb to explode the vine. It exploded right next to the vine, that only had the base of the vine left. I had already extended the game once for 900 just so that I wouldn’t lose my super ball and to move onto the next level. when it exploded the end of the vine it didn’t explode the vine or disappear. I had to purchase more lives at 1900 for 5 helicopters just to explode the darn thing. This makes me furious because for one thing, why is the first time we extend for 5 more moves @ 900 then for 5 more it goes up to 1900 instead of 1800 for 5 more moves. What is odd is at the end of the game when we have any helicopters, bombs or anything left we get a measly few coins. We should be getting the same amount you want us to purchase it for. This is crazy. I really enjoyed playing this game and as much time and money I have spent I should get a discount, especially when the game doesn’t do what it is supposed to do. I stopped playing the game for awhile last time because it was doing this very thing. I don’t know if it’s a glitch or what but I’m not too happy about it especially since I’m competitive and spend good money on this game and then for it to act up..Maradee22Version: 15782
Your ads backfiredI used to like this game and played it a lot. But the ads for this game that pop up in OTHER games are so annoying they made me dislike this game. Let me repeat: The advertisements had the opposite of their intended effect. They made me stop playing this game. That is seriously the only reason I stopped playing this game. The game itself is fine. However, I feel disgust at the thought of this game now. All because of how annoying its advertising is. Not the fact that the ads interrupt other games; pop up ads are a fact of life. It’s the content of the ads, and the fact that they have to be closed at least four times to get them to go away, but not before they exit you out of whatever game you’re playing and take you to the App Store. That’s just unnecessary. It’s a toss-up as to what’s most annoying, but possibly the D- list actors that act like I should know who they are and care about what they think are at the top of the list. I actually feel sorry for them. I have second hand embarrassment for them. Unfortunately deleting this game from my phone won’t get rid of the ads for it, so on the very slim chance that someone involved in the advertising for this game sees this review: your advertising is actively driving people AWAY from this game. Please come up with a different advertising strategy..TyriaVersion: 16209
READ THISOk, the 1st reason why I downloaded this game was because the graphics, they seemed movie-worthy! But I was disappointed to see the crappy animation that this game actually is, 2nd of all, the plot, I thought this would be a cool game, like saving the king from plunging into acid, and to help him build a path to escape a monstrous snake, but I was also SO disappointed to see this was just another knock-off candy crush with occasional “king’s nightmares”, where you have to kind of save the king, but it’s NOTHING like the ads. Then the groups, anyone can join any group, and for all you know, a little kid can join a group of sketchy people, one time, I accidentally joined a group of other people talking about rather inappropriate stuff, the app editors should THINK ABOUT THIS, there should be age requirements to join specific groups, then the profile pictures, I hate that you have only an ugly duck, a fat pig and a weird polar bear as your only options if you don’t have facebook! Another thing I don’t like is that if you run out of lives, you can’t play unless you play or you ask your teammates, who most likely will ignore you. Otherwise, this is a pretty good app for being free, no ads, and not needing internet.
But if the game was to be what is shown in the ads, I would gladly play it..Datrandombobakid1234Version: 18983
Algorithm is designed for you to spend moneyOver the past year I noticed the game is intended to cause you to lose in order to spend money. For instance if you watch the patterns the game will cause you to fail so much that you have no option but to use coins until you can't play anymore. It used to be if you failed a level you could play it until you passed. Now, after you fail the game they immediately do +5 ... up to +30 after EVERY game. It's no longer fun. Most boards are no-win or all-win boards. It's one thing if the game was genuinely created to operate on strategy but if the game senses you could win they intentionally change the board to make it unsolvable. Sometimes the game gives you a 100% winnable board, no matter how much you try to fail it gives you boosters in the right places to win. I wish the developers would go back to the initially honest algorithm. It's one thing to make money but to make it so miserable to play and intentionally make it unenjoyable. Absolutely do not put any money in the app because the game isn't about strategy like it used to be. It doesn't matter how many boosters you have the game is pre-determined to whether you will win or not. The pattern of playable boards vs unplayable boards is so repetitive that it's so obvious!!.Tnaik01Version: 16638
Challenging But needs A lot of workI have download it a few times before and I’ve been playing it And I thought it was really bad at first but then I’ve been passing passing levels and I just think it’s really cool it’s really relaxing like if you’re so bored you could just download that game and start playing it it’s really interesting because my favorite part about it is The rooms are you unlocking it’s like your style in the rooms you have like three choices and you choose a choice a little and you have to pay for the stars tell me where you can get stars is like just play the puzzle game and anyway it’s really challenging challenging but you want to say if you never give up you might get itBut there is one thing the ads are super annoying I wish they had like West ads I want to match I know it has no words in it but there are ads about it everywhere I know it’s probablyThe number one game in the world but steel yet I wish you could start but I know do you want everybody to know about it about it and that’s good get even more popularBut it probably deserves like a one star because I don’t like There are no ads in it they need to put some ads in it because I’m getting mad about it because there’s so many ads and I just want it to stop so please put some ads in it and I want everybody to know about this.Coke KayVersion: 15782
Watch out!If you haven’t downloaded, don’t. There is a lot of psychology that goes into this game…limited time offers, sales, timed contests and mini games to earn prizes, teams you join and can help with free lives which builds a “team player” mindset, bright colors and engaging graphics, and on and on in order to manipulate a brain into becoming “addicted”. When I started playing, I recognized right away the game psychology embedded in its design, I should have deleted right away, but then I got hooked. I would never waste money gambling, yet here I am wasting money to play a silly game to buy the “Royal Passes”. What is wrong with me!?! Well, now they have upped the cost of game coins to 1900 in order to get 10 extra moves. It used to be 900 for 5 moves. The problem? You need to pass levels to earn coins. You can’t pass levels when you get stuck on a level because you don’t have enough game coins. You can’t get game coins because you are stuck on a level. And on and on it goes. Well, either people are going to pay real money for coins or they are going to finally get so irritated they will quit playing. I’m guessing the latter will happen. I quit playing Candy Crush years ago out of frustration at the game. I’m heading in that direction now with Royal Match. That’s one way to break game addiction!.Teaching 1st gradeVersion: 18037
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
False advertising, Candy Crush knockoff.Alright, with quite a bit of gaming experience, I know whether a game is good or not. This game is definitely on the lower part of the spectrum. For the false advertising, let’s start with the this that they got right. First, the game is something where you swipe little blocks and match them up. Another correct thing they got right was the no ads thing. There are in fact no advertisements. However, the ads show the king in life-threatening situations like being in a room with acid, being in a room with lava flowing in, or freezing to death. In the game, this never happens. I wanted to see the king in danger to give me some sort of motivation to go faster. But like I said, the king is never shown to be in any life-threatening situations. Finally, for the Candy Crush knock-off part, it’s pretty self explanatory. For one, the premise is to swipe blocks into a shape, making them disappear. That’s literally candy crush. Second, the blocks are the same thing compared to candy crush being that they need to be all broken in order to complete the level. Finally, even the power up’s are copies. For example, the sphere with colored sprinkles/ lights around it is one of the them. I don’t have the energy to write a fitting conclusion to this, but use this knowledge to not get this game..BoibdoiVersion: 15864
No ads = must payThey have to make money, that’s expected. However, without ads….. that money comes from you! If you want to continue to play, eventually you’ll HAVE to spend money. Even if you can get all the free-play you can handle, you’ll never advance or win. They sabotage you to lose. It’s extremely frustrating. Moves or combinations that would benefit you, coincidentally no longer work. Moves that were able to destroy an object, conveniently are no longer able to do so. When you slide an object, it may go the opposite direction than you intend. It’s frustrating and presumably, people give in and make a purchase. It’s manipulation on their part. It’s really unfortunate because it’s a fun game. That’s completely lacking any kind of integrity whatsoever. Play fair and have ads to garner money if that’s what it takes. But don’t make it impossible to win and heavily advertise no ads, just to cheat the person after they’re immersed in the game. I imagine, the farther you get into the game, the more likely you’re expected to pay if you want to keep going. It’s a loose-loose for the player if they continue. I know they have to make money, as they should!! But I don’t think cheating the consumer is the way to do it. It makes money……. but It’s certainly not ethical. Shameful really!.Hood.AngelVersion: 19155
Saving progress and switching devices horribleToo easy to lose your account when switching to another device. If you’re using IOS, and want to keep your account you need to make sure that you use both the sign in credentials you used before and you need to make sure you use the same Apple ID to access the same iCloud which you must have enabled and backing up. You also need to make sure you are always signed in with your credentials each and every time you play. The reason why? Because the software manager of the development team allowed the save progress button to also be used as a login button at the same time. It’s amazing how so against the norm this is. When you install on a new device, make sure to first start up your game on your old device. Then on your old device, make sure you are logged in. Then switch to your new device and start the game. It’ll force you to do the tutorial upon start up. Exit the tutorial and then go to settings and click on the save progress button and then sign into your account. You should then see your account hopefully with your previous levels saved and then you can say goodbye to your old device. I was level 3000+ . Well it’s my time to say goodbye to this game. Hopefully this helps one of you out there..ShadowKnight🗡️Version: 15864
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
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
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
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
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

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
Misleading addsYet another game that lures you in with ads showing completely different gameplay than the real game..Kane NorthVersion: 12893
Totally fake adNot what you see in the ad at all. Just a simple candy crush rip off. You do not save the king ever as demonstrated in the ads. Don’t download if that is what you are looking for. Another example of developers making bogus ads to help downloads..GordymeVersion: 12893
False AdvertisingI was playing Geometry Dash, and an ad came up telling us that Rick Hoffmann loved the game. After some research, I found out that he was a fake bot who was trying to tell people that a such famous person was playing the game. This is honestly terrible.
Please remove the ad. I’m tired of seeing it.
Next, many bots play on the ads. It makes many people mad that they lose the game for such a dumb reason.
Why can’t the bots do better? I’ve never seen a good ad with a human actually winning.
A literal “human” in the ad kept talking like a bot and losing on purpose which can make others mad about it. Please do something about the ad.
And, the mini game in the ad is fake.
The only way you can access the fun mini games is to wait a few minutes for the royal match ad. Absolute garbage..Diegolu80@Version: 15864

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
The game is nothing like it’s commercial advertisingThe commercial shown in other games is of you trying to save the king from danger. It is in fact just another boring matching game..DialtonejrVersion: 12303
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.

False advertisementI saw the ads for this game and what appealed to me was rescuing the king challenges from danger. I see nothing of the sort and it’s more like candy crush. This was a waste of time to me..Xm3laniexVersion: 18369
Predatory MonetizationI was having fun with this until I passed level 100 - then I hit an almost insurmountable paywall. All the puzzles passed this point are designed to force people into paying. I don’t mind paying for games, but you get no mileage out of what you spend and trying to complete puzzles without an arsenal of P2W special items comes entirely down to luck.
I uninstalled. Don’t waste your time..MissingStringVersion: 13245
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
No mini gamesDon’t waste your time you don’t save the king like in ads. It’s false advertising at its best. The game is boring.DavdebVersion: 19155
DisappointedThe advertising sucks you in believing you are playing nothing but puzzles to save the king when in fact those are maybe 1% of the actually game. What we see in the ad is mini games and shows you many levels when in fact that is much of the game itself. So disappointed. Developer needs to understand we are not dumb people and shame on them for fake ads..Tac mpVersion: 19155
Not accurate“Saving the king” game isn’t even an option..2019kkvnVersion: 19155
DO NOT DOWNLOADThis game is so falsely advertised and even after you download it to play the game is not as advertised! You never see any place to “save the king” and the ads are continuous and long!!! Their long ads also appear continuously in other games while playing and you can’t get rid of them! Wish I could find a way to get rid of future ads for this game! If enough people write bad reviews, maybe they will take the hint and other game producers will not allow them to advertise during their games! we can only hope!!!.Sprained ankl.eVersion: 19155

“Free” and rigged to keep you thinking you can winDon’t believe the ads for this game. Like all free puzzle games it has those easy “you’re great at this” intro. Then it’s pretty obvious that you need to purchase packages to keep playing when they up the difficulty. Even worse than that, it’s blatantly obvious that the “random” falling of gems is blatantly against you, unless you try multiple times where all of a sudden you get all the bonus combos. A match that gives you a limit of 22 moves will constantly give you nothing, unless you fail enough and then you can get it in 10 moves. Complete trash of game and clearly rigged to keep you playing.FelazhollwoodVersion: 19371
False AdAnother game that isn’t what the ad shows.Gupper10Version: 19155
Annoying AdsI would give this app less stars if I could!

SCAM! Charges for In-App Purchases not made!!!Would give it negative stars if it were possible!
Beware! The game will take your money without making the request! Not only that, what has been charged and paid for does not appear!
If you should make purchases, it will charge you twice without delivering! DUMP IT!
Downright THEFT!.NoFan#1Version: 18983

The game is completely different and nothing so special.
Also you advertising it’s very annoying and false.MillionsMic79Version: 18983
Plain & Simple…it’s a money grabThe five star reviews will tell you this is a ‘great game’. Unfortunately it’s not. The game will at times even misdirect you to moves that will make you lose, so you have to buy more time, more upgrades, and so on. I miss the days when you could buy a game and simply play, not be constantly paying to continue..éiregirlVersion: 18730
