waste of time

Do not let your kids install this game. Your kid will get so angry and it is terribly rigged in that it tries to make you spend money out of rage.

Most imbalanced game ever.

Nice concept for a game. I've been playing it for about a year and a half now. The game was great at start, but about 7 months ago (roughly) there was an update to start putting in imbalanced units. This broke what seemed to be the most balanced game ever. Now all it is, is a game that promotes rage, cheating and overall a fest for pouring money out of people to get cards that will make them op due to its imbalanced nature.

Money

If you don’t pay money for cards then you don’t get the really good cards.

the most iritating game I have ever played

They are using special algorithms that trick your child into buying gold so that the greedy devs get well payed it works on a combination type like "I pay I have better cards" and when you win several times they give you players that you don't have even chance to win, you loose throphies you trick your mind to buy gold...and it touches every young user, the game it self is boring the challenges are made like the devs want to (they don't want to prevent financial loss for giving to much goods) when you loose 3 times the tournament is over...

Warning: addictive, with a heavy push for IAPs

Honestly, at first glance, the cartoonish fantasy violence, lack of sex, and lack of drugs makes this a very child-friendly game on paper. However, the chat is unmoderated (although everyone I've met is pretty helpful). Additionally, there's no way to remain competent at higher levels without in-app purchases. Finally, the gameplay feels mostly hollow but remains very addicting. In theory, child-friendly, but I wouldn't give this game to my kids.

Do not waist your money.

The game is manipulated By game operator. Usually players From Asia doing really good. You got one character , and the other player has already three characters . So do not spend any money to buy extra powers. Waste of money .

Harder than clash of clans which seems kind of crazy because clash of clans is literally impossible.

Violence includes just drying structures creatures dying and other stuff.

Anger-Inducing Situations + Language

From personal experience and from observing other players both young and old, this game not only has highly addictive qualities (something I won't get into), it also has the tendency to cause severe anger and induce out-lashes. The game is based on a trophy rank, the more wins you have the more trophies you get. This allows you to advance in the game. This is also where the anger comes in. If you have 1,000 trophies and you lose several games, you lose trophies and as a result become frustrated potentially resulting in screaming, hitting walls, and even throwing your device. They also have expressions to symbolize how you feel mid-game. Though most of the time it's someone giving you a crying face two dozen times in one game as you're losing making you that much more angry. Especially those who are easily influenced and susceptible to emotions. That's the Rage part. The other is language. Having open discussions with your clan mates may seem fun until someone starts harassing you or tries to provoke you by insulting and or swearing in the public discussion board. So be warned, your child will see the "F" bomb dropped on numerous occasions. Side note, in game purchases are available which can result in your child demanding your credit card for a purchase of something up to and maybe more than $24. Some people also may find it necessary to "Pay-to-Win".

Same as othe app, no money no game.

The problem of this game even if you get to lvl8 the king you will be crash in tournement, because the game put you to compete with most experience people with more diferent card that you dont have or understand, any person who play the game will start frustating for the unfair competition, bilieve a 3 years experience will crash a 3 month player, even if you pay money there is no garante you will recieve the cards you spect so you have to wait at leats many years to be at good level, and the other will keep staying in better level for been more years than you

The game is more than it seems

Yes this game can be frustrating, yes there might be inappropriate names being used by players and clans. This game will make you want to whip your phone across the room until it shatters however you can’t blame the game if you’re not happy playing it. This game offers a lot of valuable skills to be learned, like patience, stratigical thinking, it requieres you to stay on your feet by creating the perfect deck with cards that compliment one another, cards that support other cards where they are weak and vice versa. The game offers the ability to use real money so you can have an advantage in the game, which will make a lot of people want to spend but that is the beauty of it all and it all comes down to one simple thing. Raise your kids the right way and you won’t have to worry about them throwing their phones, swearing and whatever your kids do that you don’t like. You can play the game and not spend any money and be good at it, as time goes by and if your still playing the game you’ll be able to collect cards and coins to strengthen your deck. Don’t spoil your kids so much, teach them some discipline, to work hard for what they own and this game can teach them very valuable lessons. If your child throwing tantrums because of a game you need to re-evaluate your parenting skills. By the way, this game is quite difficult at first, some people will like it and others won’t. Don’t talk trash about the game just because you can’t play it lol

Good game not many issues

This game has the slightest bit of violence when troops attack eachother when they have battles. Enjoyable and kid friendly besides the fact of joining people’s group. People can use emojis to make fun of kids but it is limited to words like “Good game” “Nice try” and laughing emojis. Can be tempting to get more money to speed the game up.

Royale

I think clash Royale is a very good exciting game but there is cussing and you might need to think twice about putting your credit card details on your kids device because there are in app purchases Kind regards James
