Castlestorm is a single lane defense game where you usually send your units marching towards the enemies castle and the enemy does the same. Add to that a ballista that shoots projectiles of a varying degree of crazyness, the possibility to directly attack the enemies castle and some magic spells and you got Castle storm. Originally released as a PSN game, but here remade into a free to play app. The implementation of in app purchases doesnt create any paywall when playing the games 4 campaigns, however the new survival and raidmodes are definitely geared towards players who have spent real money on the game. I actually bought a premium package which gives you a certain amount of cash and premium credits right away and a smaller amount every week after. I bought it on sale more because i liked the game then i needed it. As i said there are 4 main campaigns each having loads of levels all bound together by a somewhat funny story. Each campaign has its own hero, with his/her own units and projectiles. Some are carboncopied like the rocket sheep and propelled boar, but otherwise there is alot of variety between the campaigns. A word of warning though, any purchases made of units or projectiles with premium credits only applies for that campaign. I.E. if you buy the Griffin in the first campaign you still would have to pay for the corresponding unit, the dragon in the second (viking) campaign. The missions are a mix of modes, some seeing you in direct control of the hero that leads your army, some where you have to defend a specific unit, get x amount of units to the opponents castle or simply raze the opponents castle. Theres really a good variety of missions and there are many hours worth of gameplay here without any purchase needed.
