Under rating threshold (show) In a game where timing seems to be very important (ONLY thing considered in getting a good rating) it is pretty ridiculous to have the soldiers waste a few seconds walking away from the town they just pillaged, just to have them walk down the road a bit to reenter the town to officially capture it. There is also an issue with respawning units after a team has died on the field, takes unbearabley long to be allowed to train a new squad after one has died. These issues wouldn't be so bad if there wasn't such pressure to cut times at every corner.

Under rating threshold (show) I would enjoy the game more if there were a goal other than just being fast. I want to capture each building, upgrade stuff and all that, but the challenge in this game is based around just rushing the stage. I like the game a lot and its a great start, but if the difficulty could be balanced so that you need to upgrade buildings to beat a level and no pressure to be fast (other than you opponents getting stronger if you are too slow), then I think it would be better. It would bring out the strategy a bit more too I think. Great work with this, and I really look forward to a sequel someday that adds more depth to all this.

Thanks! We won't be able to fix all these issues in the current version already but we will gather all the players' comments and make sure the sequel is better!

Under rating threshold (show) Good game. The pathing is a bit messed up. On more than one occasion my troops would come out of their castle to defend and would end up chain fighting to the enemies base, thereby surrendering their puny lives and ruining my dreams of world domination.

Under rating threshold (show) The only thing that I didn't quite like was the fact that you can perfect all levels with 50% of what the game offers. You need 2 squads for a village and 3 squads to conquer a town. I didn't build horses/catapults/mines/obelisks and didn't completely rebuild any towns, just rushed through. That was pretty one dimensional for a hard badge. Encouraging me to build and to develop new stragety would have been slightly more fun. But overall well done game.

Under rating threshold (show) I found a few issues. The freeze spell of the Icedales was way op. Its area of affect was so large it was impossible not to freeze/be frozen. I didn't even upgrade it and I still just mopped the floor. It seemed as though the Icedales ban of lib. didn't protect from the undead ult. Was that on purpose? The horsemen for westaria kind of made the use of inf. pointless with the x3 upgrade. The +150 gold upgrade for the crimson horde allowed for a new raider unit at each castle, by the end of each battle I would have over 10. All of these made it were I would only play one unit type for each empire, and that is a waste really. There is a lot of cool units that just get put on the shelf. Also, though it has been hit before, up the difficulty. Hope to play the sequel!

Under rating threshold (show) It's a good game. However, many strategy possibilities are crippled because your soldiers can only obey your orders up to a certain point, which means attacking whatever comes first in the road to wherever you sent them to attack (like, when they go for the gold chests rather than a castle you ordered them to), and the impossibility of retreating. Also, a not-so-good feature in a strategy game is the one where your enemies do not seem to think like you. What I mean is that the opponents always simply spawn troops in their towns/castles, rather than sending them forward to try and conquer you. Well, that does happens sometimes, but not nearly often enough as you do. How could a general expect to conquer a territory just by sitting and awaiting the enemy's attack? Anyway, the game is highly enjoyable. I spent quite some time playing it, and I like it.

Under rating threshold (show) It would be amazing if my troops were actually consistent in following my orders... instead of diverting all the time whether it is because they see another structure or enemy en route to their destination or if it is when they abandon fortifying a structure after taking it and instead just stand outside of it... other than that a phenomenal game, very fun to play despite some minor flaws in the basic a.i. performance

Under rating threshold (show) I like this game, but the troop movement and control are a little messed up. 1) Selection issues when things are overlapped 2) Units will not go where ordered if they get distracted by anything else 3) Units will capture a town and then go in a giant circle before actually entering and controlling it. 4) Needs hotkeys 5) Need to know the time needed for a perfect win without having to play the level. If these issues were fixed with a better UI, it would be an easy 5/5.

Under rating threshold (show) I really enjoyed the game though like others have said rushing is kind of counter to this type of game. So my only suggestion would be to make the star be for something other than speed so you can build up which you would probably have to up the difficulty a bit with that too. Keep up the great work and I cant wait to see the sequel.

Under rating threshold (show) Fun, slightly addictive game. In my opinion, it only needs a few MAJOR things; 1. Rating things on more than just speed. Most of us like to take our time to kick the opponent's arse. 2. Perhaps a fourth 'race' choice? I'd personally like to play as the Necromancers. 3. Add a 'Freestyle' mode in the sequal, so we can play a randomly-generated map against randomly-generated opponents. Beyond these and what most of the other people said, I'd say it's great. I love the graphics, they're simple, but elegant without causing massive amounts of FPS going down. Also lastly, I loved the 'edicts' system, though a few more choices - perhaps a third row couldn't hurt, though with the current units you have, it's perfect as-is. Lastly, more units and spells. The only 'bug' I found myself was when I used the Ice Cult's banner, it didn't actually stop the Necromancer's ultimate at all.

Under rating threshold (show) Would be an excellent game if it allowed some latitude in getting those perfect scores. I'm not a big fan of perfect scores that are so narrow that you have to take out the math books to figure out. Has the makings of a great game in all other ways. I did not have any major problems controlling my men... but maybe that's why I couldn't get those perfects. I'd suggest leaving some leeway when setting the playing balance.

Under rating threshold (show) I love this game, but I echo what other people are saying. There's no retreat or otherwise when your guys are in combat -- maybe this is an intended feature to make you think ahead? Regardless, it can become a nuisance, especially when your guys attack people barely in their range (ogres), and run over to them. Another thing I noticed is that the ranged guys (in my case usually told to attack a building) slowly creep up on what they're attacking, rendering them relatively useless because of their reduced damage. Selecting units can be annoying at times. It seems to stem from the whole circle of the unit not being accounted for when selecting either multiple units or just a single one. Also, the game can get very laggy, and when loading a level can even lock up flash. Optimization problems? Other kinds of problems? Regardless, look into them because it's a little underwhelming to have to wait 10-15 seconds for a flash game to load a level.

Under rating threshold (show) Great game I love it! But I could only give 4/5 because these problems: First, when I send troops to capture tower or something they allways attack sleeping ogres on the way. If the ogre is awaken I understand this but in the first case it's annoying. Second, when I order units to capture something and they successfully defeat the defenders I allways have to order them again to capture and rebuild it. And one last problem. I don't know if it is an overall problem or just I have it but when I select multiple units and I try to give an order usually a selecting box appears and not the order. Thanks for the game!

Under rating threshold (show) The perfect times are actually not that insane if you get the hang of the rushing strategy. Here are some advices: 1.) Don't waste your time with rebuilding the captured strongholds unless it's absolutely necessery! 2.) Build lots of farms, get money from chests rather than mines! 3.) Capture enemy magic towers quickly so they won't be able to use their ultimate powers! 4.) Cavalry and trebuchets are useful, so use them if you can! 5) When fighting against Icedales, use vanguards (send the first unit a little further than the rest so they can freeze only that one unit)! 6.) Don't waste money on upgradeing buildings - unless you really have lots of money to waste and you are going to build many units in that building - becouse it usually not worth it: it gives little bonuse and for the price you can buy 2-3 units!

Under rating threshold (show) The thing that kills it for me in this game is the lack of ability to properly command your troops. They automatically attack anything near them, and you can't stop them or pull them away. If there are multiple points of interest nearby, you cannot choose which one to attack. Or if I for example, place a banner of healing, and enemy comes by, my troops will rush out of it's radius, and I can't get them back in. If I want to move one squad, but it's icon is directly under four others, I must move all four other squads. It's details like this honestly make me not want to play through the whole game.

Under rating threshold (show) I have to say Iriy, in the beginning I wasn't really a fan of the games, but I have come to respect you as a master of the strategy arts. While your games are immensely fun to play, they aren't totally bogged down by a million different things to keep in mind, such as enemy types, what weapons/towers to use, and quite possibly the best thing of all is you add a speed up button. This is just yet another masterpiece from you, and we hope to see more. Also, 5/5.
