Notecard Defense $2.99

Notecard Defense is a new castle defense game that came out. Looks pretty dull, but it could be good. This is not a TD for those who have never played a castle defense game.

I love the art style of this game but I'm confused as to whether this is a tower defense type game where you build castle upgrades and send out units, or is defending the castle just limited to killing the dudes by flipping your finger across the screen?

The description leads me to believe there isn't much to it? Am I wrong?

Castle Defense is like 2D where they come a charging at your main gate and usually just left to right. edit: http://www.lostvectors.com/bowmaster/ and http://www.lostvectors.com/prelude/ flash game is a castle defense game and is way fun....not sure about this one though but will research it. In bowman you fling back on mouse for power and each level you upgrade weapons, soldier dudes, etc. Difference in castle games is YOU kill them not towers. But you do sometimes have helper dudes.

In castle defense you "grab" the enemies by clicking (or in this case touching) them, and then throw them by flinging your cursor (or in this case finger) upwards. You traditionally earn money for every kill which is used to buy upgrades for your castle.

Here is a flash game in this genre.
