It was considered too difficult to perform long combos or fast movements due to the slow performance of the touchscreen. Some considered the experience would have been better if the "Jump" and "Attack" buttons were always visible.

On multiplayer, the pairings where considered bad, and sometimes the players would end up been paired with players way stronger than them.

Players had a general view that it took too much time to level-up a character.

It was generally considered that the game consumed too much battery, and that when playing on an iPhone 6 (the minimum hardware it could be played), the processing speed was too slow and sometimes it would boot to the Start Screen.
