Dr. Lord Evilstein has kidnapped a princess, and now his evil lair is crawling with do-gooders. In this reverse spin on tower defense it’s your job to defend your home turf from heroes trying to save the day. View your domain from a side-view perspective, placing traps and unleash minions on your unwitting foes to protect the fortress. Touch and drag up and down on the tower to navigate floors. Across three chapters, two bonus chapters, and 75 levels you’ll outwit intruders that attempt to invade your castle from all sides—ladders allowing them entrance on higher floors, underground drills to start on dungeon floors closer to your fair maiden. Keep the princess safely in your clutches and send those heroes cryin’ back to momma.

I have been playing this game since I was 5 and It’s been amazing! I LOVE it. I always hated tower defense games because they were always the same or they were just boring! Let me tell you the story of how I found Castle Dommbad. When I was 5 I didn’t have a phone of course so I was on my dads phone in our car and I was scrolling through his games and I found this! So I ran inside my house and asked him if he would show me the game. Of course he said yes and he showed me everything, I fell in love with it. Everyday I had the chance I would play it but one day I found out what Roblox was. I started forget about Castle Doombad and I played Roblox EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. I loved it. Through the years I never stopped playing Roblox. So a few weeks ago I remembered about Castle Doombad so I went straight to downloading it. I updated my IPad to 12.1 so I thought it should have worked. I was so sad when I found out I couldn’t play it anymore! Please please please let us play it again!

Fun but glitchy

I've played the heck out of this game and it's an all-time favorite. I finally "crowned" every level and therefore have really been enjoying the "Endless Knights" tower. However, this is where I've encountered some odd glitches - and they seem like they must be fixable. Basically I powered my way to Night 15, and after that, the game was basically on auto-pilot; allowing me to conquer every level without having to do anything. It'd skip right from wave 1 to the final wave, and then secure the castle all on its own. For a while I just kept tapping that continue button and racked up loads of coins this way (all the way to night 112!) However, I definitely prefer the challenge of actually playing the game and I'd love it if they would fix this glitch. It really ruins the replay value for those of us who seek a good challenge.

Fun dungeon defense game

I would give it 5 stars, but have noticed an annoying pattern in the setup of each level.
The very first wave they send is actually the hardest. If you can place your scream generators and traps and manage to get through the first waves itch the princess unsized..then in all but a few levels you can coast.
They need to make the early waves easier and the later waves harder. Some stages on the first wave they place the princess right at the entrance.. For petes sake, why even keep her hostage with that strategy just put her outside.
