Great Idea, Poor Execution
The ability to design your own castle to defend against attacks is, in my opinion, the main attraction of an application like this. It makes the battles less rigid, and could easily be extended for some multiplayer action. However, there are a few things that prevent a player from being able to fully enjoy the game.
The most egregious problem is the inability to zoom out - or, in fact, scroll at all - to take a look at the enemy castle. Yes, you get a brief glimpse of the layout before you start shooting, but while you're shooting, there is no way of telling how the shot lines up with the enemy fortifications. A player is effectively shooting blind, which is especially bad when advanced weaponry is limited in usage. Personally, I would consider the aiming difficulty to be the main deal breaker here.
The castle builder can use some work, as well. There are times when the test function shows the castle standing perfectly fine, but once you enter the battle, you end up with a structure that's toppled over and a soldier bashing his head into the wall. Not to mention all the times when I try to drag something from the purchase screen, and it doesn't register my finger until it's already over one of my own parts - picking up something that has already been carefully arranged.
Overall, it's not terrible, but a lot of the gameplay elements - the important stuff - could use refining.
Great graphics and cool interface! Pinch to Zoom would be nice, if I have feedback to offer.
If only they had more apps like this.
