Holy freaking LAG
I would probably give this game more stars if I could actually play it as intended, but oftentimes it lags so much that it severely impacts the game’s core functions. Having made a few basic games myself, I am usually very patient when it comes to bugs and/or issues such as slow processing, but in a game like this where it essentially all just comes down to timing your shots correctly, having the tracking & movement be this ridiculously choppy and inconsistent means that unfortunately it’s almost unplayable at times.
Still though, I have high hopes for it to improve. The latest update introduced some good new features, and the game itself is a pretty fun way to waste some time. It isn’t exactly super complex or dynamic, so you can’t really play it for hours on end, but I still enjoy it when it’s working properly. If they can fix the lagging problem, I would probably even consider paying for the ad free version.
Also just as a side note/suggestion to the devs, I think it would be cool to give players the option to keep shooting even after you pass the level. Like if you have surpassed the damage requirement but still have some shots remaining, it would be fun if you could choose to either move on to the next level, or elect to continue firing your leftover shots and see just how much destruction you can wreak on the castle. Thanks!
Horrible game. Just ads
Before the last update, this game was too easy and lagged when I was connected to the internet, so I used to just turn off my WiFi before playing, but now the game has levels that are physically impossible to play without voluntarily watching at least 5 ads for power ups, which are all useless because of the lag keeping me from hitting ANYTHING. There usually isn't any lag at first, but after your first or maybe your second shot you'll be too laggy for skill and good timing to help you.
This game is no longer an actual game since the update, it's just a way to make money off of ads. It's literally impossible to play the game without watching at least 5 ads per 2 minute level. That's more ads than gameplay. This "games" aiming system is all about timing, making the excessive lag ruin he game. You have to tap the screen once to lock your aim horizontally and tap another time to lock your aim vertically, so if you tap at the wrong time on either of those then you'll miss your shot, which is guaranteed with lag ruining the first aim and the second aim. A super computer couldn't time a shot right in this game if there's ANY lag.
Do the right thing and get this game, delete it, then go back to the App Store to give it a well deserved 1 star. But be my guest in wasting your time finding out what I just said for yourself. It'll take less than 3 minutes so if you have any doubts in what I say then you should definitely go see for yourself.
Get the app and pay to get rid of ads
I’ve wasted $3 on way stupider things. This game is PERFECT to kill time. If you got a few minutes to spare while you wait on something, this will aid in the distraction. Game is simple: line up the horizontal and vertical area you want to hit (simple to understand, difficult to master) and watch the effect of your shot. Castle gets hit, soldiers fall down, a line meter tells you if you’re done. No story, no extra shots to buy, no buying skins for the cannon, and I don’t think the game ends. Castles very, but repeat and it doesn’t matter. The creators are updating this game often. There was a time that water effects didn’t exist, soldiers didn’t have emoji reactions to what’s happening, bricks fell into water with no real effects, and a special three round ultra shot didn’t exist. So the devs get better each time.
Would I like to see something added? Yeah maybe a “create your castle” mode or possibly a challenge mode. But definitely an Easter egg. There’s a good section of map where you could miss, maybe you could intentionally his a forest and blow up a gang of knights. Who knows? But yeah, buy this if you want a time killer.
A potential gem of a game
This little game is one of the most gratifying games on the App Store. Aim tap shoot, DESTRUCTION. I was surprised to see that the many bricks and explosions and people don’t slow or lag the game in anyway, rather intensify the experience. A lot of people have complained about ads for this game, turn your WiFi and Service off? I would love to see more castles, showing the same castle in a different angle can only work so many times voodoo. There is quite a few of different castles to destroy but still not enough. HOWEVER.
There is an abundance of tnt on some maps and it makes it to where after just one shot the castles just keeps kabooming. A nice little feature would be a “perfect” shot on the guards, maybe a ballista, now that would be rewarding. Level 19 is a little broken compared to the others, there’s about 4 blocks of tnt and the angle is absolutely terrible, I spent at least 20 minutes on this one level where the others are basically 20 seconds to two minutes. Fun game nevertheless
OH, and please give us some customization options, you guys are normally good at this, like making the cannon balls upgradable or different color schemes for the castles, or even a different background. The same colors get boring really quick
In depth review
This game is good but a lot of the levels after level 10 are the exact same, someone else talked about sex ads??? But I’ve played over an hour and have seen none so it’s honestly probably a competitor from another game giving a bad review, there is barely any lag when props go flying, physics are really good especially for mobile, ads usually are only 5 seconds long and play after each level. But what I’d like to see in this game is more levels, archers who can attack your cannon so you’ll have to act quick to take them out which increases the difficulty, and maybe a free camera that you can use to look around after or during you destroy the castle, so if you like physic based games or just looking to pass time i.e at work or school then this is a game for you.
Also tnt just ruins this game honestly it’s just way to easy with it so my suggestion is to take it out and even it out by giving the player more cannon balls to work with
by I love this game just to cool
I got this game and it very quickly became addicting and rewarding. As you progress you earn more coins and you can choose to upgrade your cannons power or the amount of coins you earn at a time or the power of a perfect shot. It was only until I believe level 20 that it was broken, upon arrival the castle is impossible to take down even with watching an ad for three extra shots, I tried for almost a week to beat it with no avail. One day i logged onto the game and the level was just gone and I was progressed beyond it. It was a very exciting time until I realized along with taking that level out they also took out all the rewards, all the coins that continued to bring me back. I continued playing hoping it was a bug in that level and it would return. Well now I’m on level 70 and perfect shots no longer exist, upgrades have not returned, the ads become more frequent and the levels continue to repeat sometimes without the angle even changing. It was fun for a while but voodoo missed their shot. Maybe I’ll return if the game stops breaking and they bring upgrades back.
- A suggestion for voodoo. Make the levels harder as you progress, when I’m above level 50 and i can take the entire castle down with one shot thats kind of pointless.
A major roadblock
In this game the objective is to destroy the castle and then proceed to the next level simple enough right? Well NO when shooting your cannon ball it is clear this game is hard but in my opinion it’s too hard the controls are a nightmare it’s like this game was made in 2 days trying too line up a shot can be frustrating and repetitive forcing you to redo the level if you run out of ammo another thing is that sometimes the bricks act like steel or titanium and never fall or move or they feel like legos and blow up very easily because of this problem I’m stuck on level 18 and can’t move on to level 19 its FRUSTRATING and sometimes the progress bar feels broken sometimes when I take out a huge chunk of the castle the bar loads so little acting like I took out just 2 blocks this is the most frustrating since it blocks me from seeing the rest of the game even the explosives feel way underpowered and only make a dent in a giant castle my first major roadblock is level 18 it might be for you too. All in all this game has potential to be a stress reliever or anger reliever game or just a time waister game that’s why I gave it the score I did.
Amazing App To Kill Time
I’ve been playing this app ever since it came out, and it’s clear the developers have been hard at work trying to make it better. Before, it was an awesome way to kill time and just play a fun game, but lacked some content, particularly in the levels. You couldn’t go back to castles, and most of the levels were just repeats of ones before it.
But today, this app has come a very long way. New levels, new content, new “realms” or areas with even more levels, and the list goes on. What once was a awesome time-killer, has now become one of the BEST time-killers! I just bought the “No Ads” (which is $2.99), and that is something I RARELY do with apps like this. But believe me, its well worth it. You’ll be glued to your phone playing this game! (And if you don’t believe me, check out the other reviews saying the same thing!)
And to the developers; whatever you guys are doing, keep it up. You’ve got a golden app right here.
Honestly not sure why this game is ranked above merely average. Yes, it’s a good time killer, but this whole game has the feel of being slapped together not as a good game, but as a vehicle for endless ads, which appear after ever couple levels unless you buy the as free version. Once you do pay to end the ads, however, it’s not like the game gets more interesting. It’s basically the same four or five castles over and over and over again. The only thing that changes is a slight change in the angle from which you shoot. The graphics are simplistic and laggy, and the game often crashes. When you reload, you pick up not from where you left off, but many levels before when it crashed. Finally, when the game stutters as you’re trying to aim, it screws up the shot and you miss. All of this makes me think someone wanted a way to present ad after ad after ad, but needed a way to compel people to play so they could be shown all the ads. So... they cooked up a simple unimaginative game they could slap together as a means to achieve maximum ad presentation.
I love it!
I wish I could give it 6 stars! And no...nobody told me to say that. I don’t mind if some of the castles are similar, I imagine it would be difficult to come up with a totally different design for each level. I do wish there was an instant replay button. The ability to choose your viewpoint after the blast would be excellent. I dunno if anyone else has noticed, but sometimes the view for the collapse is off center and there’s no adjusting it. Sometimes it’ll zoom in too close and you’ll only see part of the castle go down. Other than that it’s a great game while sitting in a waiting room or lying in bed. I can’t get enough of the awesome detail when the bricks fall. I imagine it’s quite accurate! Keep up the great work! Oh and the ads...they’re short and sweet. I wish all the games did the same thing. 30 seconds seems like an eternity, and that’s what most games have. This game, 5 maybe 10 seconds...love it.
