Authentic and fresh RTS - The game you have been looking for!
Amazingly simple! Command your Hero and army, and take the Crown!

Welcome to the world of Castle Burn, a real-time strategy game set in a land of fantasy where you face off against others in PvP combat! You want magic, towers, Vikings, and dragons? We've got 'em all! Lead your heroes' to victory and burn your rivals' castles to the ground!

In Castle Burn, you will become master of your own army and lead your troops into battle against others in the Crown League. Construct camps and mana sanctums as you expand your territory, and utilize all the cards in your hand to eliminate those who stand between you and the crown! You say you've never played a game like this before? Not to worry! Anyone can come out on top in the league and claim the throne for their own!

Assemble your deck in real-time! After adding a unit card to your deck, you can deploy the corresponding unit onto the battlefield. Tower cards can be used to construct towers that will defend against incoming foes, and spell cards can be used to throw your enemy for a loop! Adapt your strategies in real-time to topple your opponent and emerge victorious!

Expand your strategic options by upgrading your castle's tier! Once you add a second and fourth card to your deck, your castle's upgrade will begin and you'll be able to add even higher tier cards to destroy your opponents with!

Use your hero to turn the tide of battle in your favor! Each hero possess unique skills that increase in strength each time your castle is upgraded. Although heroes are already strong by themselves, they really shine when used in conjunction with other units. Learn the specific attributes of each hero so you can better utilize your own while more easily defeating the enemy's hero!

Track down your enemy in the fog! Scouting the map is essential to prepare yourself for your opponent's attacks. You can use the Return command to call your units and hero back to your castle. Units will return a portion of the cost used to deploy them, and heroes will begin to recover HP. You can always cancel your units' return before they reach the castle, so don't be afraid to use it to keep your army safe while scouting.

Win ranked matches to advance to higher leagues! As you do, you will obtain Crown Points, as well as new cards and maps! At the end of each season, you will receive rewards based on the league you made it to. If you ever think you need more practice, you can always join casual matches, where you won't lose any Crown Points, or try some training against the game's AI.

Complete quests to get card packs! Numerous quests are available to appease even the most ambitious players! You can also get card packs by winning ranked matches, so make sure to build up your collection and level up your cards!

Keep track of your battle log! Your most recent records are saved in the Battle Records menu. You can watch replays to study up on opponents' strategies and come up with ideas for your next battle.

This is by far the best mobile game that included cards hands down. The mechanics are simple to understand but hard to master I can not wait to get more cards and unlocked and lvl up which btw every card you may have seen the name before in other games but let me tell you the uniqueness of every card will leave you with a million ways the battle can go on if they get lucky and spawn a counter unit or give your new unit something to smash completely it’s crazy fun when doing ranking and the campaigns and such give you something to do while waiting to unlock some chest which btw are totally fair and spread out which gives the game like any other mobile and incentive to buy gems but it is not necesarry at all to progress in game and just because you may unlock a better tier 3 or tier 2 unit does not give you the victory strategy in this game is what counts the most I honesty took time out of my day to write this so please listen this is a great experience and can easily be more popular than all the other card games out there(Clash royal) Lol

Balancing issues


This game is a great game by far in the FTP category. You have the mechanics of Starcraft, the strategy of Hearthstone, and the style of CastleClash. There are opportunities within this game that allow you to create unique teams and to push on your enemy.
There is as in all FTP games the ability to pay to win. Honestly there is no complaint there, that is something that keeps games like this going and at this point in mobile gaming we should all be used too. I haven’t spent a dime and have been having a blast all around.
The reason I gave 3 stars is due to the balancing issue. As you progress people stop attacking and stay with the defensive mind. I had high lvl creatures that were 3 lvls higher than the enemies defenses and yet you could not break. The problem with this is that if the time runs out everyone loses life until someone is left with 0. If you send troops and they die you lose more life than someone who just sits and waits for the time to count down. This has to be rebalanced or all these games will ever be is a waiting game and boring IMO.

I recommend this game but I hope the devs will take notice of this balance issue and correct it.

Mobile RTS I’ve been waiting for.


I’ve been playing RTS games since Warcraft 2. I can safely say that this is the mobile RTS I’ve been waiting for! This game is more involved than other real time card games like clash royale in that you manage economy, upgrades, unit selection, and some micromanaging with hero abilities and retreat commands. I get that same feel as I do when I play Starcraft in that there is little downtime and I’m always issuing commands. You can tell that the developers are PC RTS veterans.

Sure there is an element of pay to win like all mobile games. The P2W element is set up like clash royale in that you unlock chests with keys that regenerate over time. However if you want to be totally F2P, you can opt to watch ads to reduce chest key cool down. It feels more F2P friendly than clash royale. I’m actually fine with the card leveling as it gives developers the funds to hopefully keep adding to this awesome game.

Even so, it is very possible to beat higher level players by utilizing solid RTS mechanics. Building a better economy, constantly pressuring your opponent, and utilizing proper counters definitely can win the game against a higher level opponent. Because of how involved this game is, the P2W element can and is often overcome.

This game is truly something special. Definitely at least worth a try.
