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.
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.
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!
Classic game, just like I remember. I originally Played Defender of the Crown on the Commodore Amiga 500. This is absolutely true to the original (well, it is the original, emulated). I think some of the reviews here are unrealistic or colored by nostalgia goggles. Minus one star only for the loading times and because the emulated trackpad for the mouse is slower than would be ideal, simple stuff. Overall it's good, very difficult strategy game. I wouldn't mind seeing a modern remake for Android like the Playstation 2 remake that was released a while back.
Like the old times Won the game with castle attacks only. Raid fight and jousting was unplayable for me. That makes the game boring for me. In brief you pay 2$ for a nostalgic feeling only.
Such a shame Going through your head right now is, oh my god, this is a classic. It used to be awesome. The thing is you'd be right but not now. Now this game sucks. It's like these guys said hmm great game let's see how we can break it. Plus the cheeky beggars want you to pay for it. My advice is don't. It sucks.
