Great, but flaws

Great game, just like the original, but in my download the archers and magic doesn't work!

Original flash game is MUCH better

Why mess with a good thing?

The original game had sharp, colorful (albeit simple) graphics. This game looks like somebody's junk drawer vomited on my screen. Buttons, string, bits of paper, receipts, playing cards, scrabble tiles...what the hell is this stuff?

The graphics are also very blurry. Don't let the. "HD" in the title fool you--these are iPhone-sized images that have been resized to fit the iPad's screen. Lazy garbage, in other words.

The graphics have a real impact on gameplay, as enemies seem to be larger (meaning fewer fit on screen), and they're just painful to look at.

Creating henchmen is more difficult, and they don't seem to do anything. I watched a dozen archers (not really--unlike the original game, any number of henchmen are represented by a single button--I'm not kidding) sit around and do nothing while my castle was leveled.

Bottom line: this game is a steaming pile of inferiority. Go play the original flash game and save yourself $5.

Too easy

If you buy enough archers, you can win this game without even playing. This game has terrible design. not recommended

It seems like fun at first, but it's definitely not worth investing time into. Playing this for an hour made me feel sorry for myself and depressed.
