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.
Two crippling bugs My roaming army frequently goes down to 1 for no reason - all my other units are back home. Other times I get a text saying all my men died and I am pushed back to my castle to find them all there. Breaks the game. Galaxy note 2
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!
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.
A classic game as I remember it I spent much of my youth playing Cinemaware games and Defender in particular, both on C64 and Amiga 500. This is a great retro game that helped influence a generation of strategy games. I found the controls to be ok, given this is essentially the original Amiga version emulated on Android, it does not work in all respects, but the game is still at it's heart an excellent one. The Amiga sound and graphics have dated better than most.
Sucks! I played this game when it came out on PC in the early 80s, it was a good game! These fokes took it and choped it to pieces!! Seems like half the game is missing, not to mention it seems like they programmed it to be unwinnable, worst money I spent!!!!!
