Not balanced!

Game is entirely unbalanced! I got past two levels and find it impossible to get any further. If my first wave of axe men manage to survive you can bet my second are killed either by the army the AI has managed to assemble within seconds or by the AI's perfect accuracy of their missiles. Any attempt at getting out axe men from there on is futile. That all die! I have played Castle Raid 2 on my hubby's surface pro and so was excited to see this one available for free (for a limited time). I payed nothing and feel robbed. You can bet I won't be buying Castle Raid 2 on iOS. I won't support a company that can't even take the time to properly balance one game before making another. I don't recommend paying for this game or even trying it for free!

In the end, not worth it

It’s just OK. The game starts off nice with a possibility of being a cute little game you play while you’re waiting around for something. But, after just a couple of levels you realize the odds are stacked way against you, here’s why: the tower defense part is hard for you to hit accurately (without loads of practice), but the AI hits nearly every shot perfectly. As a result, you get outnumbered quickly.

Here’s 1 of 2 options that need to happen for me to change to 5 star:
1. the missile launch is no longer “hold and release” target system, it should be a touch on screen exactly where you want it
2. the AI misses a lot more often, something like 50% to make up for the fact that that’s how often you will miss.

Again, if you’ve put in a lot of hours, I’m sure you can get really good with the tower… but is it really worth the frustration and losing so many games to get to that point? I don’t think so...

Gets too hard Too Fast...

The game has a nice sort of possibilities. There are complaints out there that the game is too short because of only 5 levels. I will Never know. I can only beat the 1st level of the 1st stage. The RED Army gets its supplies and reinforcements so fast that you just can't battle and retrieve enough trees for gold to keep up. So really, I paid for the game, and get one stage to play. Otherwise, I would give this this a better review, the game is too hard to play and even compete against the AI. Maybe in reading this there are people out there who want to online challenge me because of my lack of skills...The game is too hard...UM
