    Castlestorm displays certain qualities which are more than welcome and that shake the ground a bit in what is overwhelmingly a niche style. Nevertheless, its record would be far more interesting if its technical flaws and repetitiveness were solved.

    Very fun strategy game! I'm addicted.
    The main game is fun, but the multiplayer is more fun and more addicting. It has BOTH local and online
    Very fun strategy game! I'm addicted.
    The main game is fun, but the multiplayer is more fun and more addicting. It has BOTH local and online multiplayer. Local has one player watch the TV while the other watches the Gamepad screen. Works like a CHAMP. Great fun!
    Balance your time and energy between spawning troops, shooting a balista, casting spells, and controlling your hero as you attempt to destroy the enemy castle or capture their flag.

There are a healthy amount of game modes and upgradeable units along with a simple castle editor and local or online co-op and versus multiplayer. It's a nice change of pace from hectic racers/shooters, and fits perfectly with Wii U.

    It's encouraging to see that Zen Studios can create something quite unique along with their excellent pinball tables!

    SCORE: 6.7/10

    It is definitely what everyone says: Angry Birds + Castle Defense.

    I'm giving it a light recommend, but only at $2-$3. I would not recommend it at full price.

    This is a mobile game at its core, and as such, the price should match.

    It just isn't for me, but I can see how people would like it. It takes parts of two popular genres, melds them effectively, and has a nice art style and humor.

    I think I got it in a bundle which resulted in it being $1 or less, which is about what it is worth imo.
