With some of the finest graphics ever seen in a tower defense game, Castle Creeps definitely ups the ante for this genre. The game has a medieval fantasy theme and features elves and knights battling ogres and monsters in picturesque settings. The game doesn’t mollycoddle players and keeps you on your toes from the first level itself. The game also features a host of colourful characters and a storyline and occasionally, witty dialogue. Each level has been designed with care and is visually appealing. Like all tower defense games, you start off with a fixed amount of money that you can spend on different kinds of defenses while keeping the particular weaknesses of your enemies in mind. The ballad-like soundtrack reinforces the entire medieval theme.
Apart from the towers, you also have upgradeable heroes. There are currently three of these with more heroes promised soon. There are also daily quests that yield resources which are used to level up the towers. The game remedies some of the static nature and rigid format of tower defense games and introduces boss characters which notches up the difficulty in a few levels. The game is free but has in-app purchases for the player who wants a bit of assistance in cracking the harder levels and avoid grinding. This is a bit of a downside to the game because after a few chapters, the game starts demanding a lot of resources in order to move up to the next level. It becomes irritating after a bit and if you are not extremely persistent, you will need to spend in order to proceed.
Although, before you hit this paywall, it is a great game to play. If you are a fan of tower defense, Castle Creeps is certainly worth your time.
