Castle Defense 'Battle Shock' $2.99 -> Free






Pretty good castle defense. A must have for real time strategy fanatics. Made a score of 69,568 in survival mode (Classic Normal) in the first attempt. FUN! Lots of spells to be bought and upgraded. Tower defense elements inclusive: Buy and place archers and upgrade them. Don't forget to repair your castle ANYTIME (press pause)—this can save you in the famous last second. Gets hectic soon.

Old but good. Published in June '09 and now free for the first time! Last update one year ago. Runs fine on 2nd generation iOS devices.

Straight full version. NO IAPs, iADs or other complications. Thanks to devs! Recommended. Will pick it up again for sure.

tA user pluto6' early review with some precious hints. And in the meantime there are bosses! I've seen them. They come at the beginning of some waves.

Thanks for posting. Might have to check this one out (particularly since it doesn't take up much room ).

Yes. Battle Shock runs well even on older iOS devices. Tested on iPhone 3G (iOS 4.2.1)—resume works, very good framerate!—and iPhone 4 (iOS 5.0.1). Solid and reliable. Fast game with TD and RPG elements.
