    Castlestorm mixes action and strategy in a tower defense game reminiscent of both roleplaying games, Warcraft and Angry Birds. It’s a mix that is sometimes messy, oftentimes fun and with unexpected amounts of depth and variety in its mechanics.

    Its colourful presentation and various nods to other fantasy realms is a rather entertaining, if not limited, method of giving these usually pretty one-dimensional games a bit of much needed character. However, the control scheme is incredibly frustrating, particularly trying to aim the ballista with precision and accuracy and could turn the tides of war just enough to turn a few armchair generals off the game completely.

    A nice mix of a handful different genres, where tower defense and Angry Birds are the most prominent ingredients. As you can probably imagine, the use of so many game mechanics at the same time can get too messy from time to time. The game is still worth checking out, though.

    The gaming equivalent of a robust, salty and fatty Sunday afternoon hangover meal. It may not be rich on fiber, but it’ll get right on your sides and stay there for quite a while. Be warned, it’s highly addictive.

    Castlestorm is a fun game which mixes Angry Birds with a Tower Defense game. The big downside of the game is the time consuming adjustments you constantly have to make to your castle, but next to that it's all good fun.

    There’s nothing inherently broken about Castle Storm, it just tries to do too much for its own good. It doesn’t help that the base concept is still very derivative either, and I couldn’t shake the Angry Birds vibe I was getting throughout.

    An entertaining and well-thought-out game, adding interesting new elements to the famous Angry Birds formula.

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.

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

    A great game well worth 800 MSP.
