Ads after every level and before the next level? The game is fun yeah but not when you take into account of all the ads. Since when are there this many ads in a game on newgrounds?

This is like angry birds.

i like the concept but the ads are killing it try to fix that

Pretty good

Good art, it works, and it's pretty fun. What else can you really ask from an internet flash game?


So it's just like Angry Birds!

It looks good, but...

If I wanted to play a Crush the Castle clone, I'd play Crush the Castle.

The original concept for this game was clearly taken from Crush the Castle, but then went on to take out the fun parts. The idea behind Crush the Castle was to offer a wide range of ways to solve the puzzle, and discovering new, better ways, usually accidentally. In this game, you have to be SO PRECISE at shooting something you CAN'T EVEN SEE. There's usually only one way to solve the puzzle, and it's so blatantly obvious that you spend way less time trying to figure out how to solve it than trying to get your arrow in the EXACT spot the level wants you to, and pressing the reset button when it doesn't (pretty much all the time). I'm not saying this game is "too hard for me", but the game is simply so badly designed that I couldn't possibly be able to finish it, let alone have any fun with it. Usually, the more you get into a game, the more satisfied you should be. To me, I feel less and less satisfied as I get more into the game.

On top of that, ads seem to be everywhere I look. It really makes the programmer look desperate, and/or that this game is simply a way to make money. In that sense, it really makes the player feel like they don't matter, which is the key element to any game; to feel immersed and involved. And the whole bit with getting more points if you follow the programmer on Twitter or like them on Facebook just proves my point even more.

I'll admit, the programmer put some effort into this to make it look and sound good, but the game itself is really not all that great. It frustrates a player instead of letting them have fun with the game. The idea of the upgraded equipment is a neat idea, but it leads back to the dreaded concept of grinding for XP.

I find the programmer has some potential, but they're using it in the wrong places. They need to focus their efforts elsewhere, where people can appreciate this programmers talent.

That, or they should at least copy different games.
