Top Critic Average
CastleStorm combines the joy of Angry Birds and tower defense games, and sprinkles in some fun fighting sections. Balancing offense and defense is satisfying, especially when you successfully complete your missions. The tone of the game is light-hearted, which makes it all the more enjoyable.
CastleStorm takes the tower defence genre and adds elements of physics destruction, real-time strategy and role-playing games, making for a very interesting mix that works quite well. It is a casual yet complex game experience that is delightful to play, alone or with a friend, something that this tower defence hater truly enjoyed
CastleStorm does a good job of combining polished mechanics from other games with a decent script to form an entertaining game. It's nothing spectacular, but it's certainly fun.
Castlestorm displays certain qualities which are more than welcome and that shake the ground a bit in what is overwhelmingly a niche style. Nevertheless, its record would be far more interesting if its technical flaws and repetitiveness were solved.

Yes, I know what you're thinking. Finally, you can destroy your friends with a castle expertly shaped like a penis.
With a lengthy campaign, lots of customisation and plenty of variety, CastleStorm is a strong eShop title. There is a bit of a learning curve for the controls, and the presentation doesn't go as far as it could, but the satisfaction of taking down opposing castles make this frantic experience worthwhile. If you like strategy, tower defence, or even physics-based puzzlers and action games, CastleStorm is highly recommended.
CastleStorm is just as much a game as it is a test of your multitasking and micromanaging abilities. What seems like just a knock-off of the iOS hit, Angry Birds, is actually so much more. In fact, CastleStorm boasts just as much, if not even more, addicting gameplay, as well as several other layers of depth that make the title even more exciting to play. Couple this in with extensive single-player and multiplayer modes and quite the quirky style, and it becomes quite the appealing product.
CastleStorm is a wonderfully well-rounded package that offers up enjoyable RTS gameplay in an approachable fashion, with a high skill ceiling that caters to players of all skill and interest levels.
CastleStorm comes with an easy and complete recommendation, and it is one of the special games that can be enjoyed by just about anyone. It's Angry Birds meets tower defense meets beat 'em up meets crack cocaine levels of addictiveness in a hodgepodge amalgamation of stuff that absolutely should not work as well as it does.
CastleStorm succeeds at blending together the tower defence and 2D physics-based destruction genres to create a unique and very fun game that doesn't shy away from being a goofy, good time for the player with its dry sense of humour.
