Never thought I would see this type of a game! Heroes and Castles combines action packed first-person fighting, tower defense strategy and empire building gameplay into a single dense package.
There is not much of a story-line here. You are a knight and you just start fighting. Instead of recruiting other soldiers to fight alone and sacrifice their lives, our mighty hero takes the matter into his own hands and indulges in some bloody action. The main gates open and you are let loose into the field of skeletons and ogres. Whenever you need some help, summon the units & have a sip of some potions and you’re back on your feet. The devils take their attack onto the walls, but you wouldn’t let that happen, would ya?
Killing enemies and finishing waves will get you coins and you can repair you walls or build your town or upgrade your army with them. First, build a gold mine for constant supply of coins and things get a little easier. As time pass, you can upgrade walls to stronger metals, make better weapons with blacksmiths, start a battle academy and so on. Train archers, pike-men peons, riflemen, catapults, captains, giants and repairmen so that you have whatever it takes to bring down the monster army. Show them who’s the boss!
Coins can buy stuff as usual, while skill points can upgrade soldiers. Gems are required for unlocking more features and can be bought from the in-app store.
The animations are at par with any other fps games and the background score is well suited for the mood of war. Controls are straightforward and simple. The only downside to mention is that despite being a paid app, it has a pretty expensive menu for additional purchases. Other than that, I don’t see why you should miss this unique app.
Would I Buy Again:Can't 'afford' a fair gameplay. So, no!
Who Is It For:Mostly, action gamers
What I Like:The concept and graphics
What I Don't Like:Too expensive in-app store
Final Statement:Always worth a shot.
