411mania - Castle Storm is, at it's core, a tower defense game. And upon starting the game, I honestly didn't much care for what was taking place on my screen. The Ballista controls were just horrid, and the games humor seemed to be aimed towards a younger crowd, despite the T for Teen rating. I even sent a text to one of the other writers here telling him how bad it all was and that he owed me something for playing this for all of you. However, as I got more into the game, I started to realize that it was a tower defense game, that had a few more things to offer. The game is actually fairly deep, and just a bit silly (where else can you hurl exploding apples). Things are easy to pick up and play, and you get your training, so to speak, as you progress through the game.
