Recenze

"CastleStorm draws from a seemingly unmanageable array of inspirations including real-time strategy, tower defense, and Angry Birds, and does so with remarkable virtuosity and humor." 8/10
--IGN

"CastleStorm doesn't try to hide its inspirations, and it doesn't need to. There are enough of them to morph this action strategy into something fresh and exciting. It's warm, frequently funny, and stylish It's just hard enough to keep you biting. And most of all, it's just bloody great." 9/10
--OXM UK

“In what is easily one of the greatest moments of my gaming career, I once used my ballista to shoot a dragon out of the sky. The massive lizard corpse fell to the ground, killing three of my opponent’s soldiers. Thank you for making that moment possible, Zen Studios." 83/100

Informace o hře

Welcome to the world of CastleStorm, a super genre mashup of 2D physics destruction mashed with tower defense brawler! CastleStorm was born out of the fond childhood memory of building and destroying LEGO castles.

The clouds bring rumors of war…It’s Knights vs. Vikings in CastleStorm, where medieval warfare meets 2D physics-based destruction! Controlling the battle in real time, players will harness the power of medieval artillery, manage a fearsome ground attack, and cast powerful spells! CastleStorm features a story-driven solo campaign, a custom castle editor, online multiplayer, co-op modes, and more. Building castles and knocking them down has never been so much fun!

CastleStorm is a physics based tower destruction game, combining elements of real time strategy, resource management, and a beautiful blend of challenging gameplay scenarios.

Multiplayer battles and Co-Op. CastleStorm features multiple modes of multiplayer action for both local and online play:

• 1 vs. 1 split-screen mode, simply try and beat your opponent
• Survival Co-op: Two players team up to fight off waves of enemies together! One player will control the ballista, the other controls ground forces
• Last Stand Co-op: Both players control a hero and fight off endless waves of enemies together!

Build your own castle! CastleStorm features a tower construction editor allowing players to construct their own custom castles that will be used in battle. Castles must be constructed wisely, as choices determine which types of troops and resources will be available during battle!

Twelve incredibly beautiful environments and a comical story. Sir Gareth leads his troops into battle against the raging Vikings to recover the stolen gem and bring peace to the realm!

Multiple paths to victory. You can choose how to defeat your enemy. Capture the flag, destroy their castle, or complete another predetermined level objective in order to claim victory. Each level features multiple objectives, each with their own rewards!

An arsenal that would make any medieval warrior proud! Harness the power of medieval ballista weaponry, and launch an assortment of explosive weapons including Morningstars, Apple Grenades, Homing Eagles, and even flying sheep to defeat an onslaught of enemies trying to capture your flag and destroy your castle. Deploy a fearsome ground attack of swordsmen, knights, and donkey riders in order to protect your castle gates, and if all else fails, call upon powerful spells to help keep the enemy at bay.

You’ve won the battle, now power up so you can win the war! As you power up in CastleStorm, new weapons and troop classes become available for use in battle.

This is another one that sort of blurs the lines between genres. In addition to defending your own base, or castle in this case from enemy assaults, you also have to attack their castle. It's similar in concept to Tower Wars, which Gold Plate Gaming covered, and I think does the idea better, but not flawlessly.

Vikings, as vikings are want to do, have invaded your kingdom and stolen the magical gem contained within. The only thing to do is chase them all the way back to their kingdom, destroying everything in your path. Barring some special ones, every level has your castle, their castle, and a path between them. Your arsenal consists of a ballista, an assortment of troops you can send down the path, various spells, and summoning a hero unit you take direct control of. You generally win by either your army busting into the enemy's castle and bringing back their flag, or destroying the place outright with your ballista. I found the second a lot more practical than the first, as the enemy can deal with your guys about as easily as you can most of theirs. Friendly fire is also turned on, making it hard to support your soldiers without killing them accidentally. So far my castle, which you can either pick from an allotment of pre-made ones or make yourself, is also usually better than the enemy's.

It's a good thing then, that smashing up castles is pretty fun. You get a large amount of weapons to do it with, and watching a big tower collapse when you smash its supports is really nice. There's also a mechanic where you gain a brief period of your projectiles having no cooldowns if you can kill enough enemy troops quickly, which is quite cathartic. Toward the end of stages it can drag, though, as you'll often end up with just one room left that you need to bombard, and since destroying certain rooms prevents them spawning troops that super mode is harder to use. If you're playing multiple stages in a row I could see that getting a bit repetitive too.

Not to say the game doesn't try to mix things up; every level has some optional objective you can try for that can range from easy to heavily changing your strategy, and some levels have goals that have nothing to do with smashing the enemy castle. I'm only partway through the campaign at the moment, and apparently the vikings have their own, which seems like a nice level of content. There are also two smaller DLC campaigns for three dollars each. The game touts multiplayer, but I haven't tried it, and other reviews seem to say it isn't the best.

While Castlestorm's obviously kind of aping Angry Birds, it's colorful and the campaign has enough funny moments that I can't really knock it for that. If you want to wreak a different kind of destruction and don't mind that style of gameplay, I'd recommend the base game at least.

Great game

This game is a combination of angry birds and kingdom rush. Let me explain why you must buy when there are in sale

Graphics:

Although the graphics may look cartoonish and outdated, it gives the feeling of warcraft 3 and dota 1. Additionally, the heroes and troops are well designed and very enjoyable to watch.

Music and other sound effects:

The background music and effect are a bit repetitive since you will be hearing the same music in the menu all the time when you select a chapter or level. Despite of the mentioned fact, the music in conjunction with the graphics will make the game pace very smoothly.

Story:

The stories of each campaign are very simple but filled with a lot of funny gags. That's the reason why I have skipped a single cutscene, they go to straight to the point. Therefore, all cinematics are fun to watch but aren't the strong point of the game.

Gameplay:

You are in control of a ballista that can throw spears, rocks, magic bottles to transform enemies in other animals, explosives barrels, etc. What's more, you can spawn troops to aid you, use magic, invoke heroes in the scenario and much more. On top of that, at the end of each level you will win some amount of gold coins, these will help you to upgrade all the mentioned things (projectiles, heroes, spells, and even some rooms that gives you bonuses).

As for building your castle, I have found that mechanic a bit tedious. Maybe because I wanted to go straight away to the action and modifying the defaults castles options for certains levels can be a pain in the neck.

DLC:

In the DLC they add some story to the main campaign, some new units that mainly do the same as the old ones in the main story. However, if you loved the main story is a must to buy, it adds like 10h of gameplay.

Summary:
I give this game a 7.8/10
Is a must buy when is in sale (buy the version that comes with all de DLC they are worth it!)
Is glitchless and well optimized as far as I can tell
I hope this review can be helpful to everyone who has doubt whether buying or not this game

Better than any Call of Duty. The enjoyability per dollar is higher than all CoD titles combined. More realistic than CoD. Characters dont actually speak but voice acting is better than CoD. Written better than CoD. And better than Killing Floor 2

Ok, here is my honest, drunken review:
-WTF?! I play this game at 3 am totally drunk and I just think: WTF?! this sucks! I tried to play with a 360 controller first, ended up shooting my own man 90% of the time because the aiming is ♥♥♥♥ with controller! tehn i switched to keyboard and mouse and my precision would be 100% if I wasn't drunk. but I am and that's why it was only 90%. It's really far too easy to aim with mouse and almost impossible with a controller.
- the story is lame. something about a balista, which is out of arrows, and a teleporting knight... the game would be better without the f****** story imho. nobody cares about this s*** anyways.
- projectils explode midair if you click too early: sucks.
+ Posotive: was able to understand the game and the story drunk: it's good as a casual game for gamers who don't like the use of their brain and feel not insulted if the game expects you not to use it too much.
-i don't know what else to say... the game feels like worms: you aim your projectils at enemies. the only difference is, that worms is fun.

I bought this becuase I enjoyed the functional simplicity of the free Flash version of the game. However, I can't recommend this game. The upgrade system UI is downright confusing and unfriendly. The whole castle blueprint element of the game is a boondoggle. The ultimate conclusion one makes is hey, this is just a giant waste of my time and sanity. There is better stuff to waste money on than this.

★★★★☆

Super tower defense RTS na relax, pěkná grafika, celkem fajn hudba, pěkné a hůmorné zpracování, mnoho vylepšení. Malinko mi v začátku vadilo přepínání zbraní, kouzel a toho ostatního. Ale jde o zvyk. Mohu doporučit, pro mě zábavné,

CastleStorm took be by surprise. If you ever played Swords & Soldiers, Angry Birds and any other tower defense game - and enjoyed them - CastleStorm is the game for you.

What it basically comes down to, if you haven't played any of those games, is this:
You're the good guy, you own the castle on the left (or right, depending on the mission). Your opponent owns the other, opposite, castle. You both own a ballista that can shoot about 9 or so different ammo types.

The goal is usually to destroy the other castle. This can be done by shooting projectiles at it. Damage it enough and the physics will take over, destroying rooms in the process. These rooms are filled with troops, by the way. Destroy a room with a specific troop and your enemy can't summon those anymore.

Troops can be send to help destroy the castle gate, after which they can then steal the flag. Capturing and returning a flag also results in victory. You can also send your troops to just distract your enemy.

You also own a hero that can be spawned on the battlefield to slay the troops of your enemy. You can summon them for about 20 seconds; after that they disappear and you have to wait a certain amount of time before you can summon them again.

Missions have secondary objectives, keeping the missions fun and varied, while also giving them replayability.

Of course, a tower defense game isn't a tower defense game without upgrades. Thankfully, there are plenty of things to upgrade; projectiles, troops, heroes, spells, your castle, you name it.

The sounds are funny and the textures are beautifully sharp and detailed. It's a gorgeous looking game, in its own way, of course. You can't compare it to, let's say, Crysis (obviously). That would just be silly... ...

Like I said CastleStorm took me by surprise. It's been a long time since I had so much mindless fun with a game ♥

Kind of like Swords & Soldiers (or other 2D lane pushers) but actually good. Pump out troops, cast spells, load the ballista with weird ammo and assume direct control of heroes to wipe the battlefield. The best bit is the artillery, lob stones to smash enemy spires to loose parts which then will hopefully crush the enemy army as they are leaving their castle. There are four factions (with DLC) with different troops/spells/artillery. You can either try to storm the enemy castle with troops, stealing their flag and bringing it home in a tug of war, or you can just simply smash the enemy castle with boulders until there's nothing left. It's just fun and the physics are meaty enough, who wouldn't enjoy breaking things? Lots of opportunity for amazing skillshots or stupid accidents when your ballista hits your own troops. You can also design your own castle, the room choices affect your troop loadout and bonuses.

The four singleplayer campaigns were good enough, but when you enter multiplayer the game commits suicide. Local splitscreen can only be done in tiny windows, leaving lots of the screen unused and black. It was probably to preserve the FOV ratio but the end result is completely unappealing. Online multiplayer then is tied to playing ranked matchmaking, if you want to customize and upgrade your loadout playing with just friends doesn't earn you anything. I don't know why they went this way, did they expect to turn this into e-sports? Multiplayer seems quite dead even during sales...

All in all a very enjoyable time, for some reason I'd compare it with Orcs Must Die even though it's a different type of defense game. The art, humour and design is somehow similar and very polished. There's a nice pile of content and game modes in the complete pack for singleplayer, however if you're interested only in multiplayer I'd say skip it and get something like King Arthur's Gold instead.

This game is super-addictive! If you like games like the Worms series, or Swords & Soldiers or any kind of tower defense games, take a look at this masterpiece!

Even my wife loves it and she's losing her feeling for time on a regular basis with this game.

Singleplayer has four campaigns and it's not just "destroy the enemy castle". There is surprisingly a high variety of different mission types.

Give it a try, it's worth your time and money!

Thumbs SIDEWAYS... the single player campaign is a fun mashup between a tug-of-war, tower defense, and scroller rpg. You play to ear credits to level up skills and can even build your own castle. Eventually you get all stars on all maps, and all skills, and you are still left with an onsluaght-style game which is chaotic and challenging. Single player? Thumbs Up!

Multiplayer however, is a seriously broken, unfun joke. You are given 20k credits. Once you spend them, they are gone - you cannot gain new skills, you cannot reset your 20k to buy different items... EVER. Playing against friends? You gain no credits, so theres no reason to play with them.

The only way to get new credits is to play "ranked" matches which pit you randomly against other players (level 1 vs level 100 anyone?)- and in ranked matches you cannot even choose your opponents, so forget about ever playing with friends.

Multiplayer is horribly designed and very broken, slow and utterly fail, and unless you get this game at a steep discount, or dont mind playing by yourself, I'd say "avoid"
