With a variety of strategy games available for the iPhone, new and fresh gameplay is always welcomed; and Castle Warriors offers such gameplay. In Castle Warriors, players must raid a number of different castles on the battlefield in order to take control of an area. Players must split their units into separate raid parties to both attack enemy castles and defend your own castles.
Players can choose to split their army by sending some, most or all of their units from one castle to another. You will need to strategise according to each battle, making sure not to send out too many units leaving your base unprotected or not enough units and sending them on a suicide run. The gameplay itself is quite simple but you will need to think about your choices in order to secure a victory.
The visuals are very detailed and the units themselves are well animated. The medieval themed sound can be quite epic at times and players have the option to use their iPod during battle. The game features a single player campaign with no leaderboard options but levels can be repeated once cleared for a better score.
Castle Warriors is a game that fans of the strategy genre will love. The quick decision making and easy to control gameplay makes it an enjoyable experience. The one annoying thing is that once players send out units, they cannot be called back or change direction. But besides this minor frustration, the game is a well developed and challenging play that will keep you busy for a while.

Battle for Queen and Country: skewer a few clichés along the way.
Queen Mynera rules a lovely land threatened by despicable foes. Of course, you are her only hope. Castle Warriors is a tensely fought, tightly paced RTS game set in a landscape that gently tweaks all those fantasy tropes from the games of yore. Lead armies of warriors, veterans, warlords, heroes and even giants, against goblins, orcs, ogres, trolls and demons. You must take and defend castles, use superior strategy and tactical timing to gain advantage before claiming victory.
You must Creep on the Borderlands, defend Waterseep, and find the Temple of Elemental Good. And what possible trouble could a few missing magic items be? Hmmmm…
