This made me remember the old Robin Hood game that Nintendo had... the one that had a little bit of "Risk" in there as you took over England. It really wasn't about Robin Hood, but you could go to Sherwood forest and get his help storming a castle...

That's a game I'd love to see in the App Store!

This one looks okay, but I couldn't get over the way the guys sounded like Homer Simpson when they got shot. Would love to see more than just a shooter with a game like this.

Crap... now I can't remember the name of that game! I remember you could use catapults to knock down castle walls before going in and fighting. There were sometimes mini games where you had to do jousting tournaments and sword fights.

Anyone else remember that game?

I hate when this happens...

Yup. It definitely sounds like Cinemaware's Defender of the Crown. Here's the flash version. Have fun.

looks great but the game play seems to be very dull

Basically true, but my biggest beef is that there's no auto save.
