Reviews for "Siege Knight"

perfected each level with no magic upgrades, used bow, shotgun, and cannon the whole way, on the later levels, I set up my back 4 rows with 16 archers, 1 row of walls and the rest spike traps. nothing got through on the final level with this combo, mainly just had to focus on the fire elementals, as they were the only ground threat, but a quick shot of a cannon, immediately followed by a shotgun gave my archers a little room to handle them, then back to focusing on drakes. In my opinion, as I see everyone complaining, the bow was the best tool to use throughout the game, but then again, like I said, I didnt use magic at all.

A very fun game got me engaged with its fun diverse system, could have a few extra upgrades as someone mention the bow becomes a bit useless after a while but its really easy to balance it out with the archers with the slow effect, the strategies are very intuitive and I had a great time with the game overall finished without losing more than a handful of times, once you learn how effective each weapon is you just blast through it, though it doesn't stop being fun.
Great stuff.

I was really drawn into it at first. There are a number of unique enemies that take different strategies to defeat, and the shooting/defense combo keeps you engaged. However, I ragequit after losing the sixth level four times in a row.

First, the arrows eat up way too much of the available weapon upgrades. Once you get past the first few levels, the arrows really aren't that helpful compared to other weapons - especially the cannon. Despite covering the board in fully/mostly upgraded traps, a lot of the faster creatures got to my castle before I could kill them. The cannon is the only main weapon with enough damage to make it worthwhile on stronger enemies, but it shoots too slowly to be truly effective. The reverse is true for the bow and for the shotgun - they shoot more quickly, but deal far too little damage for fending off hordes. On level six, the swarm of explosive blobs destroyed my castle in a matter of moments despite having fully upgraded the bow, shotgun, and cannon (plus traps).

That said, I didn't really explore the magic elements of the game at all. Maybe that would have made a difference, but like to think that's more of a possible path to victory itself than a supplement to the normal weapons.

Really nice game, area 9 is proving tough to beat though.
