Is it worth buying this game?
Hey!
I just saw that this game is on sale and Im really interested in this game. Is it worth buying this game if I plan to play multiplayers more recently and coops but I would still play through the singleplayer?!

Thanks in advance for your answers!:)

MP is dead FYI... but this sale might rivive it a little

Amazing game even if you only play singleplayer.
Nepo Sep 25, 2013 @ 1:25pm 
I would like to play MP more than SP tho

Worth It for SP only!

Nepo: Currently, the multiplayer is rather unbalanced.. you only earn multiplayer gold from playing ranked multiplayer matches, and in those games, only earn gold for killing units and buildings. If you are matched against someone who is a max build - they can destroy your castle without sending a single unit for you to kill, and possibly without you destroying any buildings (near 0 gold). The match-making is horrible (I think it's a simple queue) and doesn't have any sound notifications if someone joins your room - so you have to sit watching the screen while waiting for who knows how long.

If you are really interested in MP, I would wait until they change some things. I have other threads of possible MP solutions, but have seen no feedback from the developers about plans to change anything. Also - if you want to see what a ranked match might look like, I have a few youtube videos of gameplay .

Hi, I am also considering picking up the game for myself and a friend to play together and I was hoping you, or someone else, could tell me if it is worth it for the COOP gameplay/if that is more functional than the general multiplayer sounds? Thank you :)

I don't know about the coop gameplay. I bought the game today and I've been playing it for three hours straight. It's pretty cool.

It is a kind workable mix of angry birds and tower defence, and has a lot of charm. I would heartily recommend it. :)

Note - you get NO gold to spend if playing non-ranked multiplayer (playing with a friend) - so, while you can still use all weapons/units, and build your castles, you cannot upgrade anything in multiplayer. That said, I have no idea how the co-op works, as I only played 1v1 ranked.

FFs I bought the game thinking MP was working no one is even playing lol. But Single player is pretty fun.

Game seems fun, I bought it the minute it went on sale, since I'm only interested in SP it doesn't bother me that the MP-part is not too active. What I would like to know: Is the DLC worth it? 20 new levels seems pretty much.

Id like to know too. How many new weapons are there peer DLC?

played a bit of the SP and its great fun and looks polished for a game at this price

So if multiplayer's dead and everyone's quite aware of it? So the game in reality is only 1/2 a game. I figure that it should be marked down to 1/2 price. More like $2.50 is a figure I'll certainly be waiting for. So if and when it "does" go down to that price area? That if anything will be the catalyst to revive the multiplayer side. Then the word of mouth will be their best advertisement tool. Although this is only my opinion. I will hand it to the development team, that this game has very beautiful graphics (eye candy), and the gameplay looks very inviting. It definitely has potential. In addition it received a 73 out of 100 metascore, just FYI.

Looking interesting but I think I'll wait for another sale where it is at 66 or 75 off maybe. Do you think it would be possible maybe at Winter/Christmas sale to be at 66 or 75 percent off(+ DLC)?
