Letter from the VP of Games

Hey CastleVille Legends Community,

My name is Jonathan Knight — I’m a VP of Games at Zynga, and I manage the CastleVille Legends team. I wanted to thank all of you personally for supporting us and providing amazing feedback.

As many of you have noticed, we released our first major update to the game on Monday.  We’ve been listening to all of your feedback, and are working hard to make CastleVille Legends the best game on your phones & tablets.  For example, we heard you loud and clear that expansions were too expensive, and have reduced prices on plots, while also increasing rewards for sending heroes on adventures.  We also know that many of you have been struggling with technical problems, and we’re happy to announce that we’ve made a huge number of fixes!

If you haven’t updated yet, click here to head to the App Store.  Here’s what’s new in this update …

What’s New in Version 1.5.24

**Glurb the Troll!** Meet the friendly troll who’s living under a bridge near your Castle. Feed him and he’ll give you rare treasures!

* A New Dragon Arrives! Buttercup, a brilliant Sun Dragon, has come to the Legendary Lands. Get Buttercup as your new Dragon Hero by earning Pearls from Liang the Dragon Merchant.

* Legendary Chest! The new chest at the bottom of your screen lets you know when you have treasure ready to collect at Places of Legend. It will also let you know when you have Heroes ready to explore.

* New Mystery Rewards! See what hidden treasures pop up when you try different Heroes at Places of Legend. The mystery begins at the Well of Wishes.

There’s much more coming soon!  We’re excited to be launching the game on Android and Kindle in the next couple of weeks. And we’ll be adding many new features and new heroes to the game!

Thank you for playing, for your ongoing support, and please keep your Legendary Feedback and Suggestions coming — we are listening to you!

  1. Greetings! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know
    how to make your site mobile friendly? My site
    looks weird when viewing from my iphone 4. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to fix this issue.

    If you have any recommendations, please share.

    Appreciate it!

    • Hi, I would also appreciate an answer to this. I play Castleville mainly on my iPad but the changes don’t show up on my iPhone 4. Please help! I don’t always take my iPad with me.

  2. We can not imagine our life without computer and games give
    us a lot of fun. Provide your best figure a lesser hair or perhaps a wild hair do.

    This psychological behavior is sure to give the game up and
    you should be alert to such signs.

  3. Why the hell do crowns keep disappearing, this is a blatant ripoff, if you purchase crowns or win them they should stay there Til you need them,at least Apple Store was sympathetic as I purchased crowns only to have them slowly disappear and complained and was refunded the purchase. I suggest if this happens to other players contact Apple Store and demand your money back, if Zynga won’t fix this issue hopefully Apple will surely get fed up with refunding money and ban the developers from the App Store as you could say that this is fraudulent . Do a google search and it’s not just the Castleview games but all the Zynga games have similar issues. So Mr VP fix your games.

  4. For the last approx 48 hours my game keeps rebooting itself and when it reloads it is missing the last couple of actions. This is particularly frustrating when I have purchased something through the port for a Liang’s order completion! Please help!

  17. Can you explain to me why my kingdom reset itself back to level one? I was almost level thirty-two and working on getting the Merhorse, I didn’t do anything on the app different than what I usually do, so I don’t get what the problem is. I understand It’s just a game, but I am seriously irritated and frustrated that this would happen, my kingdom was just fine, I refuse to “tap here to get your kingdom started!” And rescue the wizard. Fix this please and get my kingdom back, I’m severely disappointed your server allows things like this to happen.

    I did however expertise several technical points using this site,
    since I experienced to reload the web site lots of times previous to I could get it to load
    properly. I had been wondering if your hosting
    is OK? Not that I am complaining, but slow loading instances times will sometimes affect your placement in google and can damage your quality score if ads
    and marketing with Adwords. Well I am adding this RSS to my e-mail and could
    look out for a lot more of your respective fascinating content.

  19. I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yeet I never
    found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough
    for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers mazde good content as
    you did, the internet ill be a lot more usewful

    in hearing. Either way, great website and I look forward to seeing it improve over time.

    Com; financial advice otherwise you’ll pay a small fee for that.
    Target-date retirement funds solve this problem by automatically rebalancing for you, it’s often not worth the trouble in our humble opinion. All

    An individual running their own business should seek the help of a qualified professional.
