Castlestorm: Definitive Edition is exactly that – a remastered edition of an enjoyable game. Bar some issues with the controls the game offers an enjoyable mix of tower defense, RTS and action all wrapped up in a fun exterior. There's probably little here to convince owners of the original game to double-dip, but for newcomers there's a huge amount of content which should keep you coming back for some time.

Although CastleStorm seemed right at home on the Vita, it fits the PS4 very well, too. The bright visuals pop and sing thanks to the increased power and the game runs as smooth as butter at all times. Addictive and entertaining, CastleStorm's mix of fairytale whimsy and challenging strategy – as well as its mishmash of play styles – makes it a solid and enticing prospect whatever the platform.

CastleStorm has a ton of things to handle while playing, and while it's never a bad game, it feels like I was having to juggle too much at one time and ended up fumbling with the controller more times than not.
