Castle Story is available on Android now, but it's still on limited release. If you do not see it in your Google Play store, it's because it's not available in your country yet. Thanks!






As above, will this be released for Android, if so what kind of timeframe?

(even a super rough GUESS is fine, like 1-3 months)

Only monster and dragon story are holding my interest, once I had the empire state building, City story got ditched...

No response?

I would usually go on a rant about this being why I stopped spending money on TL games blah blah.
Since they don't seem to listen (although White dragon feeding in Dragon story went from stupid (9x) to ridiculous (5x), so they listen but don't do things people actually want..) I won't really bother.

All I ask is a simply yes or no, and what kind of timeframe.

The standard response is all you'll receive as:


At this time we can't speculate its release for Android.

Is the response that is given 100% of the time any new game is released to one platform over another. The same goes when a game finally makes it to Android but Kindle also didn't get a release for it at the same time.

I am not asking for anyone to speculate, far from it.

Is this to be released for Android? Yes/no

If someone is working on it, Answer = yes.
If no-one is working on it, Answer = no.

Not asking when/where, I have given up asking those kinds of questions (at the same time I stopped paying consistently...)

Just "Will it be released, even if that is 15 years from now?"

Pretty straightforward question.

In exchange for that answer, I will stop playing the other "story" games, just to get gold in Dragon/Monster story.
(they should care because I invite neighbours, use their bandwidth, get the gold, then leave a rating and delete. Ie waste their resources and often leave a poor rating)

It's just a matter of prioritization. We recently released Bubble Mania to android, so who knows what will be next for us? :) Though honestly.. even I don't know yet what will be out next on android. When I hear about Castle coming to android, I'll do my best to let you guys know.

Fair call on directing me to my own thread. Not sure how to look for it easily..

Dragon story New dawn was next. I do find it hard to believe that no-one knows what they are working on?

Eh.

My care factor and payment for the games is at an all time low, which is disappointing, as Team Lava has some excellent games

Me too! I'm pretty sure Santa is bringing me an Android tablet this year. So I'd love to be able to move as many as I can from my slow and tiny iPhone 3g to the new tablet. Sadly, my two favorites are Dragon Story and Castle Story, both of which are not Android-friendly right now. :(

Can you be so much more vague? If you can tell us if you are or are not developing Castle Story for Android, it would stop a lot of these conversions from cropping up. Fact that you, Teamlava, are hanging up by a string is really aggravating for us fans who have the Android OS. And spare us with "we'll pass this along". Yes or no will work.

Castle Story is such a beautiful and well done game of all your TL games in my honest opinion. I understand that you guys most likely have your work force spread thin across all games to keep them updated and/or slowly port them over to Android and other platforms.

IOS is no longer the reigning king of the app market, nor will I say Android is about to take the title away but nevertheless it does represent a huge demographic today. If you guys at TL are choosing not to port over Castle Story anytime soon or if ever (hopefully this is not the case), you're denying yourselves all those potential customers and revenue.

I think we're all just asking for a simple confirmation if Castle Story will ever be a part of these ports or not. Thanks for your consideration.

You can still play on the old iphone as long as you have wifi. I too wish for CS to be ported to Android but I think it is unlikely. Even if it does, i don't think I can transfer my progress to Android. Most likely will need to start from fresh. Nevertheless, I still keeping my fingers cross hoping TL will do so one fine day even if I have to start from level 1.

I play castle story on my ipad. I just got a Samsung note 2 to replace my iphone and ipad so that I would have both phone and tablet in one. Was going to sell my ipad until I tried to download castle story on my phone and realized that it is not available on android. I have come so far in this game to just let it go. Any clue when or if at all will castle story be available on android? I am so ready to get rid of the bulky ipad but also want my castle story.

TL will just continue to say they can't speculate. Castle Story was released to iOS over a year ago. I wouldn't hold my breath on it coming to Android.

Likewise for Pet Hotel Story, City Story Metro, Home Design Story, Farm Story 2, Dragon Story new features. I don't think they're updating Story games for Android anymore. If they were, we should have seen at least one of those new Story games released by now.

That's a real shame, because more people are going to be owning android tablets and phones than iOS in the coming years. iOS is like Betamax, but Android is like VHS and will eventually dominate the market due to pricing. It's a poor business model that doesn't respect the realities of the market. Go ask the people that worked for Betamax, the laser disc and HD DVD.

Another one who is desperate for castle story to come to android. I run a first gen iPad, on ios 5.1.1 and the game is so buggy �� if it doesn't crash at least 6 times in 5 minutes then it's a miracle! My iPad is on its way out, and I will be getting a Samsung replacement. Mainly because it will be a third the price of my iPad, secondly it's massively more reliable. It will be a real shame if I can continue playing such a popular game on the most popular platform..... Cme on TL, android is massively more popular worldwide than iOS, and far less restrictive. Don't dismiss loyal gamers just to stay solely on iOS.

So... after playing for more than 2 years, on an iphone, I upgraded to an LG G3 last night. Sorry to hear that Android does not support Castle Story. I realize it's not coming anytime soon (if ever) and wonder if you guys can tell me the "cheapest" way to play. We currently don't have any apple devices in the house so I'm not sure what to buy. We have brand new phones and a brand new tablet (all android) so just looking for something to hook up to the wifi and play. How old of an iphone can I buy (wouldn't get cell service/just use it on wifi) to play this game?

Been reading yr comments about dragon story, I've been playing a few years now and I'm getting more discontent had it goes along. It's not geared at Android users, but we're the biggest user, D'S for us is pointless all we can do is bed. We don't get the extras, e.g dragons, habitats, decorations, battles, storage. I revise to spend my own limited can on a game that isn't going forward, TL needs to up , up its game, again design home isn't avail and fobbed of every time I approach with a question, and that closed before I even get to read the response. Seems they can't handle customers,
I feel cheated cos I can't have the same chances I'm sure once get to lvl 150 , I'll quit what else is there, I'm running out of space, can't achieve goals on an equal footing,

PikaSquirrel: Do you have any idea of the timescales of when it'll be available in different countries yet? I've got a goal in several of your other games to install castle story in the next 15 days - it feels rather unfair if it's not going to be available for me to download in that time period. I'm from the UK, but I'm sure others from other countries would also like to know when it will be available for them.

Hi Mitch - I believe you will have to move your ID from Apple to Android. TeamLava Team helped me make this move. I did this right in the beginning of my move from iPhone to Android. You will have two IDs. They informed me if I did this I would no longer be able to use my iPhone ID but you can always switch back. I saw them move, but Candy Blast and Cupcake Mania I had to start over. It noted this on their page when moving IDs. I cannot yet confirm is CS will be where I left it, I sure hope so. It is documented pretty well on their site. Hope this helps!!

I know team lava seems to cater to ios users. I am an active player on multiple tl games. However. Dragon story is limited for me. Breeding. Feeding, expanding,(and breeding is a pain) thats it. So I loose interest. I uninstal it and ignore it most months of the year. Half my dragons are lvl 10. Thats nice lol. Boring.
Bakery story is the only game that has always entertained me. At lvl 99 and working on maxing all my ovens (with almost 20 of them complete)...and two expansions short of maxed out..im down to redecorating constantly. At least its still fun for me.

I use the login feature everyday since I have several accounts created from upgrading my phone & iPad several times. You just have to be sure all the TL games are force closed so after you log in you're not still 'in' the first game.
It works because I use it everyday to send myself gifts and respond to requests from my main account.

When they recently released Farm Story 2 to Android, it didn't have all the features that the iOS version had. There's been no new feature releases to Android. New events, such as the recent Halloween event, are only for iOS and not Android. I'd keep both devices and use the iPad mini to do things not available on Android.

On iOS there a much more features (mine, battle arena, additional expansion, ice isands) and events (battle tournaments, summons, wheel) for DS which are completely missing on Android. Android basically stopped pre New Dawn version except for addition of new dragons
