Fun has a few bugs

Temple of light, sacred grove, on the hell difficulty has an issue every time I beat it it says I lost and gives me the option to give up or pay 50 gems to continue, please fix this. This game is fun but is definitely pay to win. Especially if you have little patience to wait or get lucky for the level up material.

Game abandoned by devs

Used to be a pretty fun game with updates every couple weeks or so. It’s been months with not a word from the developers. Many features left completely unfinished.

Arena needs to be fixed

I really like this game, but I have a big bone to pick with the arena mode. I really like the concept of arena mode but the actual fighting mechanic is so wonky. It’s the usual as the core game, which is what makes it unfair. All of your heroes share the same health, while the other team has individual health bars. His essentially mean that although you may have got one f them down, the others can absolutely destroy you. I often find myself also getting demolished because of counterattacks, which takes literally a majority of your health. I fought a player with 1500 power and a level 2 arena with my 2000 powered party and lost because of a counterattack. I’m saving the biggest problem for last: each opponent has their own attack cool down which means all four can attack at the same time essentially killing you in one foul swoop. I really love this game but I can’t help but complain about the arena mode.

Events are frustrating

I have been obsessed with this game for weeks, and I love games where I can level things up and have this much choice in building my team. However, when you get further into the game, you need certain cards to evolve your favorite heroes. These cards can only be found through limited-time events, and the drop rate is SO UNRELIABLE. I have spent so much energy (and gems to refill that energy) over weeks just to get this one card I need to level one guy up. Sometimes, I spend the 35 energy required and never even come across the thing I’m looking for. Other times, I come across it three times in one round, but I still never get the card. This needs to be improved. There needs to be a better guarantee of getting the cards you are spending all your energy (both in-game and in real life) on. If game progression is this frustrating, I can’t keep playing much longer.

Don’t play

Game was sold a while back and now it doesn’t appear to be paid attention to by a developers at all; for instance one of the weekly events has the ever so awesome name of “event.Weeklyevent57.name”. Presale the Devs were super involved, releasing new heroes, new play modes, and special weekly events like double exp events or greater chances of certain heroes dropping; it’s been weeks since one of those happened. At this point I think they’re ignoring the game and hoping people keep dropping money on gems. Sad, was a good game with some great players but at this point there’s no reason to recommend it.

Developers Abandoned Game - Beware

At one time this was a great game. Developers involved. Monthly activities. New content. But as of the last couple months the developers have abandoned the game. No help on Facebook. No new content. Nothing. Download the game and play it. But don’t be like some of us and waste money. It’s not worth it anymore.

fun, but room for improvement

Edit: Dropping the review down a star because the frequent crashes have really made this game unplayable. Higher levels require you to grind the story for evolution material, and its unbelievably frustrating when you finally catch a card on a rare drop and then lose it because the game crashes on the victory screen a third of the time. overall a fun and addictive game, but it crashes way too often. to make matters worse, the crashes usually happen on the victory screen at the end of story missions, which means you don’t get your rewards/chest for that quest. also, this game is only based on “blackjack” in the simplest way possible, so don’t expect a lot of blackjack style mechanics or excitement. the deck is only composed of the cards ace to 10, with no J, Q, or K, so the odds of pulling low cards are much higher. there is also no splitting or doubling down, which are two of the most exciting blackjack mechanics, and seems like a huge missed opportunity in a blackjack style rpg with a bunch of blackjack battle “abilities”.

Game Abandoned?

Lots of crashes. Lots of microtransactions. Blatant pay-to-win. Forced reinstall after every update. Hacky and embarrassing in every way. EDIT: Game has mostly stabilized for me, minimizing crashes. Would increase star rating, but it also appears the devs have abandoned the game. No updates, events, sales, communication for 6-8 weeks. Would advise against spending any money on the game until there’s some indication it’s still in active development. If that happens, it’s worth considering.

Really wanted it to succeed

I’ve logged several hours into Battlejack and I’d like to say it is fun. Crawling through dungeons and getting new party members is reminiscent of Pokémon, which I also really enjoy, however being mitigated by paywalls and a P2W style most mobile games have nowadays makes Battlejack suffer. The devs have made something interesting enough to make you want more, but you also have to pay to have any kind of relevance in competitive. I’ll be quitting this game after this review.

A lot of potential but some serious downsides

Cons: - crashing remains a problems for many months now. The game crashes every now and then, sometimes right when you deliver the finishing blow to end a dungeon. It’s the developers’ or server’s fault, but the players pay the price. You lose the energy spent to enter the dungeon, you lose the resources you used during the fights, the friend you borrowed, and any cards you captured along the way. I read the reviews that complained about this before downloading the game thinking it wouldn’t be a big deal, but it really is. The developers have clearly known about this for a long time and has done nothing to solve it. Which leads me to con #2 - the developers do not care about the players, only their money. I know that everyone needs to make money, but the outrageous costs for things in game is unbelievable. I’m someone who doesn’t mind spending some money for IAP, and have put in about $50 in total into this game, but it’s obvious that many put in thousands easily. If you want to get ahead in this game, that’s what it’ll take. Not for me. - the drop rate for boss cards are ridiculously low. It’s nearly impossible to collect even a 3* boss. Why? Cuz **** the players, that’s why. - the programmers are either lazy, amateurs, or just don’t care much. The auto play feature in the game is nice in theory, but just terrible in execution. It would only take a few lines of code to substantially improve this feature. Why would it not hit when no heroes are selected? Why does it need to draw a 15-21 just to heal? Why would it heal when just a sliver of health has been taken off? Why can’t it use ace abilities to get some easy 21s? Etc... - there are no fun/different events. It’s all the same crap week after week. And to highlight the last point about sloppy programmers, this week’s event is called “event.WeeklyEvent56.name” with the description being “event.WeeklyEvent56.desc” Good job guys. Good job. I can honestly keep going but I’m tired of typing. This game has SO MUCH potential, if only they cared about their players as much as they care about money, and if only they got better programmers. Brilliant idea for a game, just done so poorly. It’s a shame.

NEEDS WORK BEFORE TOO LATE

This game is awesome. The core qualities the game has is addictive and entertaining. The story line is enjoyable, there’s enough aspects of the game that has so much potential... That being said, the developers need to start doing their job or this potential will disappear. The biggest problem in my opinion is the inability to play the game for a long duration. Once you are out of energy having to pay gems to replenish it is not something other developers haven’t abused before. However the ridiculous amount of gems you have to use to replenish the energy makes it impossible to play the game for a long duration which will eventually push away the games active players. They need to make the game able to run itself. Also another HUGE issue is the lack of support from the game. There has not been an update in about two months, no specials or deals to help players develop their teams, and no status of the game. How are the players suppose to continue on when the developers aren’t even showing any speckle of support to purpose the game. Very very disappointed in Nexon and the game developers.

Great game, one suggestion

This game is a great time waster for anyone looking to pass time during a lunch break or while traveling (assuming you can get an internet connection). For me it also always loads very quickly even if updates are added as other apps I’ve tried take so long to download updates that I’m left waiting for up to an hour just to play for a few minutes (looking at you dungeon boss). However, one problem I keep coming up against is unlocking chests while playing the game. To summarize every time you play a level within the game you get a chest with an unlock time from 45 mins to 12 hours. You can hold a total of 4 chests at any time and unlock one at a time (without spending $). Each chest contains a variety of useful items from free in game currency to heroes. The problem is that occasionally you can get several 8+ hour chests and are stuck babysitting the app to unlock them all. There are even random events where every chest you get for a short time is guaranteed 12 hours meaning at minimum it will take 48 hours to unlock everything again or be playing without gaining new chests. Now while there is an option to instant unlock chests it costs either $ or in game currency which you acquire at a slow rate. My suggestion is that to fix the problem of being stuck with all these chests is to allow for the option to sell them without gaining any items. This would allow players who are trying to farm resources to gain gold coins (used primarily for leveling/evolving heroes) and those who need the chest items to sell the high hour chests in order to unlock many low time chests. This allows those who want to spend money to keep unlocking every chest they get while appeasing the free players who are trying to grind their way to the top. TL;DR Great game, but it needs an option to sell chests that take too long to unlock.

Dead game

I loved this game even though my relationship was mixed. Dropped alottt of money on it regardless. It hasn’t received a game update since 2-13-2018 and almost a fourth of the players have left because of burn out and this lack of support. For my guild being in the top 5 nearly 33% left. It killed my guild. The game is dead and on autopilot. A heads up would have been nice. I feel robbed. Enjoy your 545m profit Nexon. I will never play a game of yours again after this one.

Great game

This game helps me out with my gambling problem and I like the rpg stile

Back to greatness ✨😎✨

After a long absence I tried Battlejack again and I was delighted to find all the new content and apparently the crashes were fixed. There is lots more to do aside from the main campaign!

Leaving without warning

I joined about a month and a half ago, then nexon the producers decided to abandon this game without any warning. They decided that their other game required all their resources and I had spent money on this game without warning that they’d be leaving this game and to this day they still haven’t disclosed wether or not they’re giving up on us. Very unprofessional way to handle business

Bad battery life/hot device

It’s fun to play once or twice a day but it murders battery life and makes my phone extremely hot which is not good. Maybe let us change the graphics settings or disable animations to try and help

Wish this didn’t bind

The bind to game center id forever concept is annoying. It shouldn’t be hard at reinstall to simply ask if you want the new game to overwrite the existing game. I only have one I’d and had to reset my phone but the game I was playing didn’t bind so when I restored I had an old version and lost my game entirely. If the 1990s could allow you to delete game saves I don’t see why modern technology is so resistant to letting you delete a save.

Indeed!

I usually tire pretty quickly of micro transaction games but this game has remained fun for quite a while. Definitely worth a download if you enjoy blackjack and mini RPGs.

Devs seem to have disappeared

Honestly awesome game but devs seem to have gone awol and aren’t putting our responses on any platform. I would wait and see if they decide to come back before investing time into the game

An honest review

Great game, until you actually play it. Be prepared to experience loads of crashes if you have an iphone 7 and below. Be prepared to get little to no help when the the game crashes and you lose everything during the crash. Be prepared to spend $$ if you wanna stay on top. Lastly, this game eats battery power like popcorn for what it does. Infinity blade uses less for crying out loud. Had the worst experience with this game, not worth the headache.

Game is awesome. But is it dead?

No news from devs. No events since Feb.

Pls add

I love this game but the clans need friendly battles because otherwise I feel the clans are just for cards

Awesome game. Have devs stopped supporting though?

I really like this game a lot. I play it all the time and have 6 Star heroes in my teams. But lately there haven’t been any bonus events. I saw a Reddit thread that devs have stopped supporting the game, which would be super unfortunate for me since I like the game so much I got my daughter and girlfriend playing. Is it true it will no longer be supported? Where have bonus events gone?

Great game, one concern

Found this game about a week and a half a go and I can’t put it down. However, after leveling up one of my hero’s to a 5 star rank, the game suddenly crashed and has been unable to open since. Not sure if that’s because of a server error or the game itself has become corrupted. Hope it gets patched whatever it is

Nexon does it again

I got this game mostly because I’m familiar with black jack and Nexon made one of my all time favorite app games: Fantasy War Tactics. Battlejack is very different in gameplay and feel but for its genre I think is a nice departure from the “connect four elemental orbs to do damage” trope. I know the collection of multiple currencies in game will eventually lead me to give up on this game but for now it’s a fun diversion.

App crash

There’s a issue with the game whereby the app will just crash when I was trying to change my name. Hope the issue can be solve as I’m looking forward for the game. Thanks!

Cool concept!

Cool concept

Fun but keeps crashing

The game has gone through a lot of changes since I first started. A major issue for is that the chance to capture rarer heroes has been severely decreased. Plus the game has been crashing a lot. In the past 30 minutes it has crashed on me 5 times and I have no other apps open. We complaints of crashing are submitted to the developers they say that it is your fault, yet a lot of people in my guild make the same complaint. It has been a while since the game was updated, so hopefully one is coming out soon.

Fun but slow

I really enjoy playing this game, however the energy and chest delays slow it down way too much. If there were a way to ease up on the choke points and allow a bit more relaxed play, I would definitely rate higher. I also run into way too many blops and junk mobs on the ghost/gold levels. Turns an exciting experience into a frustrating and boring one. Love the concept and the framework, few tweaks from awesome. Thanks for making this.

Good game

I found a problem with the animation with Miho. When you try to level up with the three star, the flame bleeds through when one picks sacrifices. Love the game though.

Super Fun But...

How about adding some other BlackJack elements like splitting your hand or doubling down?

Superb game

This game really addicting but one of the biggest downsides to playing is that it drains battery life like crazy! Also RNG is a real pain when it comes grinding for cards you want. Cool down time for donating cards is too long (15hrs for 7 donations). Update: the game has become stale & boring. It appears that the game has been abandon by the devs with no word from them since their last update which was like back in January. Such a shame cause they had a promising game but lack of communication with the community & their attempts to have players pay for advantages in game just to avoid their ridiculous grind hurt themselves. Simple events such as double xp, discount on crafting, & half energy for dungeons that were cycled weekly have cease to exist.

Was fun, now game developers stopped updating

March 2018 Game is still fun but the developers have stopped updating it. I don’t recommend you bother starting to play as it will likely die off soon unless developers speak up. —— Sept 2017 Started off a bit slow but within an hour I got hooked and have been for months.

Card limit

I understand limiting to 4 chests but why are cards that can only be used for upgrades taking up battle card space. Completely lame.

Fun and Interesting

While I am not a fan of the gated gameplay, everything else is interesting and fun. The mechanics are fun and you even get enough rare pulls in the beginning to get a decent deck. The size mechanic is interesting if not frustrating at the beginning when you have size 8 creatures and only a hand size of 15. The graphics music and gameplay are great!

Devs abandoned the game

Game was great until the devs abandoned the game. Abandon all hope ye who enter here

Fun game but...

Being forced to wait 45 minutes for chests to open and not being able to play is kind of rediculous

"BOOTED TO THE MAX"

I think the game is fun and is interesting. The simplicity of play makes it an easy choice for quick go to as well. My main concern is the number of times you will be removed from the game. When contacting service it states it is your internet speeds but have found no other issues on any other app or games. I would suggest they have a quick save feature on a update to be able to resume the game you was playing as this is a regular occurrence and very frustrating. I will continue to play for now but may become tiring being booted all the time and cause my time to be spent elsewhere.

Love game 🦄❤️💘

I love the game but the level I’m on is making me mad but I love this game 💖💘🦄💋

Greed has killed the game

Used to be a my favorite. I do still like it, but not nearly as much. You’ll notice most of the negative reviews are posted after December. The most recent updates have made the game less enjoyable. I almost never pay for games with in-app purchases but I was putting money into this one on a regular basis ($8-$15 a month and more for gems... but then the devs got greedy. All recent moves are forcing p2w. Patch 2.2 and 2.3 ruined the game for me. The worst change was the escalating gem cost for energy. This made trying to progress in the game feel like rush hour traffic in Los Angeles. Use to be 50 gems for refill now 100 for first, 150 for 2nd, etc. until the next day. I would’ve been cool w increase of 25 gems each time you refill for the day but they went overboard. This is even worse when you’re trying to do a portal key run to get ghosts or gold and have to stop before your timer is out cause your gems are gone. The other really bad moves were lowering the 4* drop rate (which wasn’t great to begin) and making it way harder to get scrolls. The scroll chest they added costs way too many gems... All in all the game was a grind but it was fun. Now it just feels like a chore w not nearly enough rewards to keep it exciting. (Update: I added one more star to make 3* because it seems like some effort is being made but devs aren’t addressing some of the core concerns brought up by active players)

Cant summon Freyr

I really like this game and i have been playing for a while but when i go to the altar to summon victory god freyr only 3 of my 4 miho show up. I have all the zere, eldric, cxr, and miho all proper star requirements yet only 3 of my miho show up in the altar. I would really like this to be fixed or figure out how to get it to work.

Over testing tolerance

I’ve stalled out on this game. The acquisition of mimics is nearly impossible. They are used to upgrade the cards. In higher level cards, different mimics are needed. I’ve been playing for several months and have yet to acquire any of these mimics. Brick wall syndrome. Unfortunately... Delete. This game is a “play until you’ve had enough” game.

Started Fun, then they nerfed.

Been farming all week for new heroes. I get one in the last week. Rare summons show up much more rarely now and give 3 star dupes. What’s the point of putting hours into this game for absolutely nothing? Everything else is great. Drop rates and feeling rewarded however... non existent.

Super fun, lots of problems

First of all this game is fun, probably my favorite free to play game on the App Store. However, the game has some very serious issues with it. I have not paid for any in game purchases because of the high likelihood of the app crashing and in-game resources being lost, and if you do decide to play I suggest you do the same. Let me give an example: like most free to play games you are limited by how much you can play certain modes with energy. Unfortunately the moment you decide to play a dungeon that energy is spent and isn't coming back. This wouldn't be a big deal, but about one in eight times I play a dungeon the app crashes. That means your energy is gone, along with any drops you collected from the dungeon. This game is definitely pay to win, but the pve elements are more core to the experience and are super fun, so I don't mind. If the crashes or the way energy was handled in the crashing situations were fixed I would definitely give it 5 stars and buy a few items to support the devs. I can't really do that in its current state, however.

Props!

First I gotta say that I love this game! I can’t put it down. At first the gems to unlock loot chests worried me but I soon found that the more I play and hit the achievements and gain gems it wasn’t an issue at all. But... my one huge issue is that since the last update I get a lot of freezing during quests. I’ve been robbed of my loot chests and hero drops several times. A couple times right at the end when I’ve beaten the boss and I’m anticipating weather I’ll get his card it’s froze and shut the app down altogether. I’m a huge fan of your game and will continue to play; but I do hope you can fix this issue. When you do I’ll come back on and give you that 5 star rating you richly deserve! Thanks for the entertainment guys!

Wasted opportunity

This game used to be fun but after the reworking of energy and lack of gem Drops with new updates it’s not worth it anymore. Time to find a new game to Play

5 star worthy!!!!

I enjoy this game to no end. But I’m quickly getting frustrated with how many times the game force closes the app. I’ve lost so much due to that. The most annoying one of all is when I’m about to defeat a titan or have a good run going and it kicks me out. Not only do I lose that match and have to restart, but I also lose the materials and energy I used to start the match, PLUS I lose out on using the companion I started with. If it wasn’t for that one issue, I’d HAPPILY give this 5 stars. I’ve lost too much that I don’t know if I’ll continue playing until that is fixed. Please fix it so I can continue to enjoy this awesome game! 😭 Actually, I think I might just delete it until I see y’all make an update. Because in the last day, I’ve been forced out of 3 titan matches... and they’ve all been the SAME TITAN. His life goes right back to where it was before I started the match, yet I still lose all the energy I used to start the match. I’m over this

Great support response

Appreciate the fast response. All fixed thank you!! And a great game!!!

Very addictive, hard to develop

First of all, I dont play mobile games on daily basis but Batllejack is the one that ive been playing since ive downloaded it 3-4 weeks ago, already 40+ lvl and got 2-80 and 2-60 heroes, but it is hard asf to get heroes to 6*, almost impossible, couldnt even get 1 mimic and now im stuck. Cant beat last campaign world, cant beat 4th world on hell doificulty and now i dont even know what to do to get some stuff to develop my heroes. It would be awesome if devs added evolve material event keys so we could get mimics at least easier, it takes too much energy and drop rate is close to 0.
