The clouds bring rumors of war…It’s Knights vs. Vikings in CastleStorm, where medieval warfare meets 2D physics-based destruction! Controlling the battle in real time, players will harness the power of medieval artillery, manage a fearsome ground attack, and cast powerful spells! CastleStorm features a story-driven solo campaign, a custom castle editor, online multiplayer, co-op modes, and more. Building castles and knocking them down has never been so much fun!

CastleStorm is a physics based tower destruction game, combining elements of real time strategy, resource management, and a beautiful blend of challenging gameplay scenarios.

Multiplayer battles and Co-Op. CastleStorm features multiple modes of multiplayer action for both local and online play:

• 1 vs. 1 split-screen mode, simply try and beat your opponent
• Survival Co-op: Two players team up to fight off waves of enemies together! One player will control the ballista, the other controls ground forces
• Last Stand Co-op: Both players control a hero and fight off endless waves of enemies together!

Build your own castle! CastleStorm features a tower construction editor allowing players to construct their own custom castles that will be used in battle. Castles must be constructed wisely, as choices determine which types of troops and resources will be available during battle!

Twelve incredibly beautiful environments and a comical story. Sir Gareth leads his troops into battle against the raging Vikings to recover the stolen gem and bring peace to the realm!

Multiple paths to victory. You can choose how to defeat your enemy. Capture the flag, destroy their castle, or complete another predetermined level objective in order to claim victory. Each level features multiple objectives, each with their own rewards!

An arsenal that would make any medieval warrior proud! Harness the power of medieval ballista weaponry, and launch an assortment of explosive weapons including Morningstars, Apple Grenades, Homing Eagles, and even flying sheep to defeat an onslaught of enemies trying to capture your flag and destroy your castle. Deploy a fearsome ground attack of swordsmen, knights, and donkey riders in order to protect your castle gates, and if all else fails, call upon powerful spells to help keep the enemy at bay.

You’ve won the battle, now power up so you can win the war! As you power up in CastleStorm, new weapons and troop classes become available for use in battle.

CastleStorm reviews and comments

So, in strategy game, this is one of the best I think (I'm talking about the type strongold 2D version 1vs1) the campaigns are quite long, apart from the change of units/spells/heroes, it may seem repetitive (destroying the opposing Castle) but it is very Complete. With friends in co-op it can be very fun! Personal note: 15/20

I thought the Game Principle was promising and treated myself to it in the Sale. But somehow the Game didn't grab me. It tries to be witty, but at least I didn't have much to laugh about. It took me a full 3 Hours to start getting bored. It should be mentioned that the Game in the Coop may be more Fun. I never got to That, though.

Very nice little game. My complain are only: you have to choose between keyboard or joypad, can't use both. And you can't set up keyboard and it's really annoying because my keyboard is "azerty"... Other than that I enjoy very much the gameplay. Petit jeu super sympa, seuls problèmes rencontrés c'est qu'on doit choisir entre utiliser le clavier ou le joystick, et quand au clavier on ne peut pas le configurer et c'est en "querty"...

Castlestorm is a simple but effective concept game: defeat its opponent with great reinforcement of devastating projectiles and increasingly powerful units. We are not going to lie, we take a real pleasure to make the walls of the opposing Castle fly in shine and watch it crumble. It is also gratified to see the ability of his opponent to gradually diminish. Unfortunately, some elements come to ruin the painting... [...]

For a quite decent price you have a good little attack/defense Castle fighting game with a neat cartoon realization, intense action and even humor. We send troops, projectiles and spells to enemy troops and castles trying not to lose his. We also have a castle building part and improvement of spells, troops and projectiles which gives the game a bit of a "management" dimension. It's well done and very friendly, probably a bit repetitive, but fun so recommended!!

CastleStorm the gameplay in two words: ACTION TOWER DEFENSE and HEROIC FANTASY the most: + an original concept located between angry birds and swords and soldiers. + The many game modes. + Does not require a big config. The less:-fun at first, but repetitive and fast boring. -A little too easy. -The interface is not ergonomic at all, we tangle the brushes. Lifespan: about 6 hours for the main campaign, a few more hours with additional campaigns, and frankly I have not tested the multiplayer. My evaluations are written in a comprehensive manner. They encompass the basic game and all of its DLC.
