Reviews

"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

Steam Big Picture

Über dieses Spiel

Willkommen in der Welt von CastleStorm, einem Supermix aus 2D-Verwüstung und wilden Tower-Defense-Kämpfen! CastleStorm wurde aus der Kindheitserinnerung des Bauens und Zerstörens von Lego-Burgen geboren.

Gerüchte vom Krieg machen die Runde … Ritter gegen Wikinger lautet das Motto in CastleStorm, wo mittelalterliche Kriegsführung und auf Physik basierende 2D-Zerstörung aufeinandertreffen! Die Spieler kontrollieren die Schlacht in Echtzeit, setzen mittelalterliche Artillerie ein, führen furchterregende Bodenangriffe aus und verwenden mächtige Zauber! CastleStorm bietet eine handlungsbezogene Einzelkampagne, einen Editor zum Erstellen eigener Burgen, Online-Multiplayer, Co-op-Modi und vieles mehr. Burgen erbauen und wieder zerstören, hat noch nie so viel Spaß gemacht!

CastleStorm ist ein auf Physik basierendes Spiel, in dem du Burgen zerstörst. Es vereint Elemente aus Echtzeitstrategie, Ressourcenmanagement und eine Mischung aus herausfordernden Gameplay-Szenarien miteinander.

Multiplayer-Schlachten und Co-op. CastleStorm bietet mehrere Modi der Multiplayer-Action für lokale und Online-Spiele.

• Split-Screen-Modus “1 gegen 1”: Versuche, deinen Gegner zu besiegen.
• Überleben-Co-op: Zwei Spieler bilden ein Team, um gemeinsam Wellen von Gegnern abzuwehren! Ein Spieler kontrolliert die Ballista, der andere die Bodentruppen.
• Letztes-Gefecht-Co-op: Beide Spieler steuern einen Helden und wehren gemeinsam endlose Wellen von Gegnern ab!

Baue deine eigene Burg! CastleStorm bietet einen Editor, mit dem Spieler ihre eigenen Burgen für die Schlacht erstellen können. Burgen müssen mit Bedacht gebaut werden, da hierbei festgelegt wird, welche Truppenarten und Ressourcen während der Schlacht zur Verfügung stehen!

Zwölf wundervolle Umgebungen und eine witzige Geschichte – Sir Gareth führt seine Truppen in die Schlacht gegen die wütenden Wikinger, um den gestohlenen Edelstein zurückzuholen und im Reich den Frieden wiederherzustellen!

Mehrere Wege führen zum Sieg – du kannst wählen, wie du den Gegner besiegen willst. Erobere die Flagge, zerstöre seine Burg oder erreiche ein festgelegtes Level-Ziel, um den Sieg davonzutragen. Jeder Level bietet mehrere Ziele, jedes mit individuellen Belohnungen!

Ein Arsenal, das jeden mittelalterlichen Krieger stolz machen würde! Nutze die Macht mittelalterlicher Katapultwaffen und feuere eine Auswahl explosiver Geschosse ab wie Morgensterne, Apfelgranaten, zielsuchende Adler und sogar fliegende Schafe. Besiege den Feind, der deine Flagge erobern und deine Burg zerstören will. Starte einen fürchterlichen Bodenangriff mit Schwertkämpfern, Rittern und Eselreitern, um deine Burgtore zu schützen. Und falls das alles nichts nützt, setzt du mächtige Zauber ein, um den Gegner in Schach zu halten.

Du hast die Schlacht gewonnen. Jetzt musst du dich rüsten, um den Krieg zu gewinnen! Wenn du in CastleStorm aufrüstest, werden neue Waffen und Truppenarten für den Kampf verfügbar.

Got it for the multiplayer. Multiplayer kinda.. sucks?

To explain, Survival modes are both incredibly bare bones. You cannot make your own castle first off. Having to rely on presets in order to do anything. Secondly, enemies upgrade after every wave, but you can not upgrade anything during a match. In fact, you can't even upgrade AFTER a match either. You have to close out a match entirely, make a NEW one, so that you can now spend your gold to upgrade things. Then you have to invite your friend back to play with you.. But wait! Its not that simple. If they want to upgrade their hero, they have to do it seperately as well.

Gameplay wise, the survival mode doesn't have anything honestly. Its just wave after wave of units slowly matching out of spawn to attack your base. Each wave has enemies getting stronger, but you staying the same. So much so that using units for anything but flag retrieval is pointless.

Hero Survival is basically the same, cept without the base to defend. Heroes are pretty bland, with only the norse chars even having a different special attack, and it all feels like the blandest beat em up you could ever hope to play.

Haven't tried the single player yet, but if you buy this to play with friends, I'd definitely give this a pass.

Fun game using a great mix of castle destruction ala Angry Birds style along with some Tower Defense elements thrown in with a little bit of beat'em up sprinkled in all combined with a great art style.

The campaign tells an enjoyable tale where each mission (of which there's even optional side missions) allows you to play a level a couple of different ways. You can win a level by destroying the enemy castle completely in an Angry Birds style where you lob various types of "missiles" from your ballista/catapult. You can also win by breaking down their castle door and sending troops in to get their flag and deliver it to your castle. There's a few other missions here and there where you also play the main here ala a hack'n slash, beat'em up, brawler.

Each of the styles are entertaining and no level is very long, and there's many many different levels so it remains an entertaining, changing game. Very well done.

In the typical level, you can focus on destroying the enemy castle using your ballista/catapult and it's various artillery it throws from the single spear, to the multi-spear throw, to exploding drums, to large rocks, etc. You select which types of missiles to equip at the start of each level, and also which to spend earned gold on upgrading them. So if you favor a particular missile, you can upgrade that one up to 10 times so it does far more damage. Generally the more damage a missile does, the longer the cool-off period.

Another way to win the level is by sending your troops toward the enemy castle -- breaking its door down, and bringing that castle's flag back to your castle. So instead of upgrading missiles, you can upgrade your wide-variety of soldiers by making them do more damage and have more health, etc.

So while you are using your ballista to knock the enemy's castle down and break down the door for your troops and also sending your troops to capture the enemy flag, the enemy is doing both of the same to your castle. If they destroy the room in your castle that allowed you to send forth your Archers, then you can't send out any more archers, etc. So each room in your castle has a function. Lose the room, then you lose that function or bonus.

Both styles of defeating the enemy are entertaining, and all done in a comedic story and appropriate artwork. Every level has a (skippable) video introduction, progressing the story along.

All this, and I haven't even mentioned the ability to design and create your own castles, or mentioned the various spells used to defeat the enemy troops, or placing yourself (ala the hero) onto the battlefield and fighting first-hand, or the many types of troops that you and the enemy have.

The Good:
+ Fun, entertaining game
+ Multiple play styles supported -- Angry Birds castle knock down, and Capture the Flag ala Tower Defense
+ Variety. Many variety of missiles, troops and enemies
+ Nice length. The campaign took me 8.3 hours and while each level is short, there's many of them in a wide-variety of missions and goals.
+ Artwork and style.
+ Well polished game. Animated intros on every level. Nice.
+ Design your own castle. So you can customize and protect your most valuable rooms the way you wish.
+ Castle rooms determine troops available.
+ Upgrade, Upgrade, Upgrade! You can upgrade, missiles, troops, rooms and their abilities, your spells, your "hero" character.

The OK:
~ No narration. The videos, while animated use text boxes for all speech.
~ The DLCs. The DLCs seemed to change the balance a bit and use much more of the hero fighting. Which is okay, but I prefer knocking down and storming castles! :-)

The Bad:
- Nothing comes to mind...

Overall: This is a great little family-friendly game where I found it highly entertaining to knock down castles along a lengthy, well-paced and varied campaign . 8 out of 10.

Lots of fun! That is if you like destroying castles. This has a 2D interface that still kind of feels 3D. I would recomend this game to you if you enjoy simple yet still challenging games. Easy physics to understand. Although the controls take a little getting used to, you can adapt pretty quickly and punish your enemies swiftly! Ugrades that are further explored in the castle development aspect definitely adds more depth to the game! Having a blast playing and I'll probably buy the expansions. =)

A fun little game to pass the game. I'm a teacher and I was looking for a game which would keep me entertained during the recesses. This game is awesome for such short gaming bursts.

In short, you try to destroy the opponent's castle or capture their flag. You have different kinds of projectiles that you shoot with the ballista mounted on your castle gate, and you have different kinds of soldiers, including infantry, cavalry, siege units and monsters. You can either go for destroying the opposing castle room by room (the game has a very good physics engine, so if you somehow manage to destroy the basement of a castle, all of it comes tumbling down), or you can upgrade your soldiers and go for capturing the flag. There are two steps to capturing the flag, first you must break the castle gates, then you must escort the flag bearer to your castle.

You can design your castle in any way you can. You have only two limits while designing you castle; spatial limits and a limit of 5 different barracks at most. Other than that, you can create your castle however you want. If you don't feel like it, there are also ready castles that you can use, but I think they are inferior to what you can achieve yourself if you personalize your castle.

I've encountered no bugs or glitches throughout my gameplay. The loading times were also very short.

There is almost no voice-over (just some generic sounds used many times) but the game never feels like it lacks it. The music also fits the game like a glove. It can be epic, funny or brooding depending on the mood of the moment.

The graphics are very cute and also hugely appropriate for a game of this kind. They are very, very reminiscent of Warcraft III, which I liked a lot. This game clearly proves that the most important thing in a game is gameplay, not the graphics.

Don't expect miracles from the story. It's mediocre, and at times it really feels like it was written keeping children in mind. However, it at least manages to make you feel curious about what will happen next. The game also ends in a somewhat cliffhanger, so expect a sequel.

The only criticism I can make is not about the gameplay but the story:

You beat the Rogue Knight, Sir Brutus, and he pledges to serve you, but where does he or his army go? You just continue using the Barbarians' army-set like it never happened.

Also, all throughout the story, it was hinted very, very clearly that Lord Rufus is a traitor and Sir Brutus is actually working with him. What happened to Lord Rufus and Friar Vic when we were separated because of the cave-in? What happened on the other side of the mountain while we were fighting in the Barbarian lands?

And what about the ending? What was the monster that we saw at the end? The developers could have at least described where it came from and why it appeared just after Ramhorn's death. And the ending roll says peace ruled the land but (as I've said in the previous paragraph) what happened with Lord Rufus, the traitor? These are not answered and I must say, it really bothered me.


Other than these reservations, I think this is a very good game and it definitely deserves your money. Recommended.

Fun game with simple objective and controls to destroy your enemies castle. Upgrades to your arsenal and star ratings for each mission gives it some replay value too. Plot is as stereotypical as they come but its surprising it even has one.

I still remember how few years ago 2D lane pushers appeared in form of free Flash browser games and got relatively popular. (If you don't know what I'm talking about - you fight opponent's fortress by spawning minions that want to do the hard work.) Zen Studios took this formula but added more to it, to make a great mashup of well-known subgenres. You don't just spawn minions to attack the enemy's castle, you also control the ballista of your castle to kill enemy minions, or to destroy the opponent's castle in Angry Birds style. But that's still not enough, your hero can also get off the ballista and go into fight himself. CastleStorm is a great combination that won't give you a rest, you'll still have something to do.

So, it's always a fight between castles with last man standing, is that all? Definitely not, there are many objectives that will lead you to victory - behind every castle's gate is a flag that will also achieve you a victory if your army takes it to you. In other levels, you have to protect yourself against waves of enemies, or you just have to hunt wolves (or deadly bosses). There are always two specific objectives for each level - one mandatory, one voluntary being usually something like "spawn swordsmen a lot" or "destroy enemy castle in three minutes".

The story revolves around a war between knights and vikings but there's nothing to be taken seriously since every cutscene have a gag prepared for you. That, with combination of nice graphics and sounds, make overall good comedy mood between the battles.

The fact that you use ballista to attack the enemy doesn't mean that you would just have to stick with big arrows. There are plenty of ammunition types to choose from, each upgradable! That applies also for your army and magic skills of your hero. Members of your army and passive bonuses are decided by rooms in your castle which you'll build yourself. Of course, you can use a pre-made castle, but it feels great to build your own, with your personal selection of rooms for the best strategy.

Conclusion:
CastleStorm offers good amount of levels to keep you entertained for hours, especially if you will try to beat all optional level objectives and finish side quests. The gameplay keeps being dynamic, as you'll have to switch between ballista, your hero, and control of your barracks (to spawn your minions). There are also two DLCs which add even more levels. CastleStorm is worth buying.

Unglaublich sympatisches Spiel für zwischendurch.
Die drolligen Charaktere und die (wie ich finde) super schöne Musik dazu machen einfach Spaß.

Man sollte aber auch nicht zu viel erwarten. Es ist ein Spiel für zwischendurch, aber diesen Job macht es verdammt gut.

Die Kampagne hat mir gut gefallen. Auf die Story sollte man keinen Wert legen. Das Hauptaugenmerk liegt auf den Zwischensequenzen die einen immer wieder schmunzeln lassen und den Ehrgeiz alle Sterne zu erringen.

Nettes Belagerungsspiel für zwischendurch, in den meisten Missionen beschiessen sich zwei Burgen mit unterschiedlicher Munition, wobei neben den obligatorischen Steinblöcken und Pfeilen auch Schweine, Schafe und Feuergeschosse zum Einsatz kommen. Ansonsten hat man auch die Möglichkeit Truppen auszuheben und die gegnerische Fahne zu erobern, der Gegner versucht dasselbe, Magie und für 30sec selbst steuerbare Helden runden das Ganze ab. SP Modus macht Spass, wobei die Geschichte nicht sonderlich originell, aber stellenweise ganz witzig ist.
MP Modus = gähnende Leere, wenn mal ein Gegner auftaucht ist er meist mehrere Level über einem und man hat ähnliche Chancen wie ein Schnellball in der Sonne.

Ein sehr motivierendes und cooles Game. Hat mir sehr viel Spaß bereitet, lustige Story, oder eher wie sie präsentiert wird und ein cooles Levelsystem der Einheiten, Fähigkeiten etc. Ehrlich gesagt, ich habe nicht geglaubt, dass das Spiel mir so sehr gefallen würde, doch als es mich gepackt hat und das war gleich nach dem ersten mal spielen, hatte ich es recht schnell durch. Ein echter Geheimtipp!

Ich fand das Spielprinzip vielversprechend und habe es mir im Sale gegönnt. Aber irgendwie hat mich das Spiel nicht gepackt.
Es versucht witzig zu sein, aber zumindest ich hatte nicht viel zu lachen.
Ganze 3 Stunden hat es gedauert bis ich angefangen habe mich zu langweilen.

Es sei noch erwähnt, dass es sein kann, dass das Spiel im Coop mehr Spaß macht. Dazu bin ich aber nie gekommen.
