Castle Raid - Same Device Multiplayer!



Great new same device game

Similar to a real time chess, Castle raid really brings out the best in same device multiplayer games.

Played 2 games this afternoon at work at the tension was extreme .
Everyone enjoyed the game and everyone really looks forward to playing more tomorrow.



Dev page: http://www.arcticmill.com/

Personally I love same device multiplayer games, it's fun, easy to get into and competing against your friends is fun no matter what the game is.

Hopefully the devs will support the game and bring uppdates with more content, more strategic elements and an even richer experience.

All in all, a fun game well worth the small cost.

This looks great and I always like same device multiplayer games. The short modes are nice too, I don't always want to play a complete board game for more than half an hour. How casual friendly is this? Could I play it with a 9 year old kid?

I would say so.

It's basically three things to keep controll of.

1: build peasants, maximum of three active ones at a time.

2: build units, three different types.

3: keep track of from which of the three directions you enemy is approaching.

That's about it, sound very simple, but once you get into it, it's very strategic when playing against a friend.

A game lasts about 4-8 minutes and that 8 minutes of tension if you really like winning

Hi guys, I wanted to give you some updates about Castle Raid!

First off all the iPhone 5 update is now live on the App Store. We are now going to focus on updating the game with new content!
The other day we posted a small preview of one of the new units that will ship in that update, the Orc Barbarian! Check it out on our blog: (http://www.arcticmill.com).

I'll post the image and text here aswell so you guys can check it out:

The Orc Barbarian is a strong unit, stronger than a footman. He hits hard, he is tough, and can withstand damage from archers especially well.

Put fear in your enemy with the help of the Orc Barbarian!




We'll keep the updates coming both on our blog and on this forum thread.

As always we'd love to get feedback on the update, on our new content previews and of-course the game!
