Poor effort I loved this game as a kid. I spent a lot of time playing this on my trusty old commadore 64. Although the load times were ridiculous back in the day, at least the game was stable. My army keeps becomming diminished randomly, sometimes when i am attacked the game freezes, and the swordfighting is near impossible to win. How hard could it have been to introduce a much better interface and test / fix a few bugs. They would have only needed to play the game once or twice to realise this product isnt ready.
Wished for more So much potential but they should have reworked the interface. Loved the original but this one is just too hard to control. Jousting is impossible and your campaign army just disappears sending you back to your home castle for no reason. There is also no point in blocking during raids as it is just a button mash fest. They should have remade the Windows remake from years ago.
Classic game Unwinnable game, successful raids don't result in any increase of gold, never earn enough gold to build an army the size of the enemy, and jousting is impossible. Lose your army randomly and robins help is worse than useless. Doesn't seem like the compete game of old, not sure why. But still good fun.
Expected more This game is one of my favourite classics. I was somewhat jealous when a friend was able to get it on his iPhone a few years ago. Having waited so long for the Android version, given the wait I'm disappointed. It's essentially the same as the iOS version released ages ago. The mouse interface is really clunky an unintuitive and the soft buttons are in your face. It really has the feel of a port of a port of a port ... Wish the game was rewritten for mobile.
The real thing... but buggy and horrible UI Well, the game is there, no question. But there are some odd bugs, and the interface is completely inadequate to play most of it. Not sure it is worth spending money on it unless the UI is severely improved.
Brilliant I absolutely love this, just like the original. Yeah, loading is a little slow and game play is not ultra slick with the trackpad but that's part of the charm which takes you back 25 or so years. I think some people forget they're not paying £40 and it's not a n Xbox game!
