Knights Onrush is an intensely addictive and fun castle defence game. As the enemies attack, flick them into the air, crush them into ground, blow them up, freeze them, boil them, sacrifice them, anything goes!


Nominated for Best Action Game of The First Annual AppAwards by

IGN: A delirious strategy game with insane pacing & goofball gags; impossible not to love. 8.5 out of 10.

Modojo: Easy to get into yet hard to put down. Presentation is among the best we've seen on the iPhone. 5 out of 5.

Theappera: Can’t be praised enough. It’s fantastic, and gives a fresh look to a beaten concept. 8 out of 10.

Rustysabre: Knights Onrush is the definitive leader in the genre where the App Store is concerned. 9.5 out of 10

Idea for next update

I have recently bought knights onrush and so far I have been somewhat pleased...however I am disappointed that when u start a mission you aren't able to close out of the application and come back to exactly where you left off...I am also disappointed in the amount of castle upgrades...they are all good ideas but not enough upgrades...I suggest another form of sacrificial punishment to enemies as well as possibly adding another castle upgrade or two...for instance an armada of your own allies to shortly live in honor on the battlefield by fighting by your side to rid your castle of attacking enemies...and of course you could be presented the opportunity to buy a stronger armada...another idea could very well be a swarm of gryphons that fly by and snatch hostiles...those are a few ideas and suggestions that would make buying this game a complete steal...however so far the game seems to run very well and I have not encountered a single error with any aspect of this game...and I know what it takes for a game to be recognized in high standards considering that I am a video game tester for various infamous companies...and as a form of constructive criticism if there were more available castle upgrades this game would be unstoppable...good work to all that have put effort into this application...keep up the great work!!!!!

Fun? Why, yes it is!

This is one of quite a few games where you fling enemies who are attacking your sweet castle pad into the sky and let gravity do the killing... at least most of the time.
Unlike many games of this type you have other ways to dispatch your enimes. You can buy various weapons, a fireball flinger, you can even sacrifice them to a dragon or hurl them into the bowels of hell. Those last two even gives you the soul of the sacrificed to buy more stuff for yourself! Good deal!
There's lots to do and the graphics are awesome. The music is pretty good but the screaming of knights and such can get a tad annoying but you can muted if you need to.
The only two real problems (and ones that have never been fixed for some reason) are that there are many times that the "Victory" flag will come down while enemies are still onscreen or waiting to be eaten by the dragon/belched up from inside the earth. It usually doesn't make anything too bad happen but I have had a couple times where the very last enemy I sacrificed and it went to the results screen before the sacrifice finishes, making me loose 1 soul. Not too big a lose but it can be annoying.
It would also be nice to have more than one save slot for each game mode.
Apart from that it's a great deal for $0.99! Get it before it goes up!

Great Game All Around

This game is one of the most responsive, most fun, and has one of the best graphical interfaces for the ipod/iphone. This game will keep you up for hours and you will wonder where the time has gone. The save feature when exiting the app works great and thus can be played for as long or as short as you want. The campaign is slightly difficult on easy, which for any game is a good thing and adds replayability. Also on the subject of replayability, when you start a campaign level over again the you don't always get the same score by the end of the level, creating a randomness that can be frustrating in a good way, the way a well made game should. The attention to detail graphically is something that sets it apart from normal iphone apps, such as not reusing the same old sprites for some tasks (when using the hellgate, for example). To those who are angry with stupid things like not being able to grab the object you want it to grab, i guess you'll just have to wait for a mind reader attachment whilst sitting in your cave. At .99 cents, you are getting way more than you pay for, unlike many apps offered.
