    Defend Your Castle is very easy to learn, and very easy to master. There's no real depth or strategy to the game, and nothing new to see or do before you even hit the half hour mark. It's not a terrible game to play, but it just doesn't give you very much reason to go back to it. There's a free, flash version of the game on the internet, and I suggest you play that and Defend Your Castle is very easy to learn, and very easy to master.

    Defend Your Castle is a fun WiiWare game and a perfect example of what the service can bring to Wii owners. Namely, seemingly shallow pick-up-and-play experiences with hidden depth.
  2. The craziness and inanity of the game definitely makes it a great party title, but the lack of descriptions on how some of the abilities you gain throughout the game work are counterintuitive towards the playability and arcade feel.

    The effects are also the biggest difference between this WiiWare version and the Flash original, which shared most of the game mechanics but lacked the visual appeal.
