All other iOS games I play are nothing like Castle Story....although I admit, I have now downloaded Castleville just to see what all the hub-bub is about.

...and I don't know any other way to say this without it sounding rude & so I apologize ahead of time, but ...
What diff does it really make anyway & who cares?... Their icons aren't up for grabs either.

08-05-14, 01:42 PM
If you have feedback on the new icon, please do not post them here. You can continue to post them in this thread HERE (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?71440-The-new-icon-is-going-to-drive-away-male-players!).

The games don't need to be similar to Castle Story at all. We're just interested in any other iOS games that you play. If you'd like to share, please list your top 5-10. :)

5. Wheel of Fortune
6. Tiny Wings

I normally like simple games that don't take too much thought: Temple Run 2, Match Dots, KittenUp, and CatsAway. I think I like this games because they don't need WiFi or data to play. I also enjoy playing Infection and Royal Revolt 2, both of which require some strategy and WiFi/Data usage.

Kind of a tough one, because for the last 18 months or so, the only game I've focused on has been Castle Story. It's only in the last few days that I've begun to go back through the thousands of apps I have on iTunes to see what else might occupy some time. Right now I don't have that many games installed on my iPhone or iPad.

One that I play somewhat often is called TowerMadness, a fairly decent tower defense type game. A single game doesn't take too long, and is mentally challenging. The biggest challenge, for me, it trying to win each level without having to buy cheats. To me, buying cheats in a game ruins the fun, as long as the levels can actually be solved without them. In this particular game, I'm coming to the realization that winning without the cheats may not be possible.

I used to play Angry Birds for a while, then was sidetracked by Castle Story. Haven't gone back to AB yet, but I might play that again sometime. Again, you can work through the levels, and not take a lot of time each time around.

I love Casino games, Solitaire or other card games you can play on your own with no network access. I also like a good auto racing simulator, as long as the physics are realistic.

One game recently I thought I could get into was The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle Earth. But I didn't care for the overall gameplay, having to fight against real neighbors, and overall the realtime nature of it. Something Dungeon's & Dragon's related, like the old Bard's Tale and Wizardry games, or Summoner. I spent many hours playing those years back on my desktop.

I'm going to sidetrack slightly and give a bit of feedback on what I don't like about TeamLava games is that they force you to play online. I love playing on my iPad, but it is Wifi only. And sometimes, I just don't have Wifi available where I'm at. Ideally, there needs to be some amount of gameplay that can be done offline, and later be able to Sync Up to the TL servers when they become available.

Kingdom Rush 1&2; The Room 1&2; Badland; The Tribez; Jelly Defense; Horn; Eufloria; Bard's Tale; XCOM Enemy Unknown; Republique; Bastion

Solitaire, magic puzzles, and for a while I played Tiny Sheep and things like Megalopolis, but those got boring really fast cos there's nothing to do but build and collect. You don't make anything and there's no real strategy involved. I also played Hay Day for a while but got bored. Right now I'm playing pyramid 2, which has little build real fast scenarios and it's playable over and over and fun, if a little nerve wracking. I don't like to use cheats either. I also download hidden object adventure games but only play the free introductory bits. I loathe Angry birds and that ilk. They seem stupid and a complete waste of time to me. I tried Majesty, but it wasn't the same as on the PC, same with SimCity. I would *love* to have a good SimCity on my iPad. Townsmen was good for a while, but it also had the same building limitations.

I guess I like a good strategy building game the best. :) with cute animals. Not pink unicorns, tho, lol.

I like Strategic games, and also solo that do not need always wifi access, as well as games that are simple just to ease the stress of a long day, ( card games like Solitaire ) though I should say, Castle Story is my daily fix, so here are some, in no particular order:

-Ticket To ride / by Days of Wonder
-Leaping Lemmings / GMT Games
-Castle Story / Storm8
-Medici/ Sage Board Game
-Tichu/ Urs Hostettler & Fata Morgana Spiele
-Ra/ Reiner Knizia & Sage Board Games
-Battleline / Gourmet Gaming
-Mystery Crime Scene / Storm8
-Home Design / Storm8
-Restaurant Story/ Storm8

PS. I have other Storm8 games ( i.e. Bubble Mania / Slots / Bingo etc... ) but I do not play them daily like Castle Story.

Dragon story
Words with friends (it's like scrabble)
4 pics 1 word
Quite liked dragon vale in the beginning but began to get bored with it so no longer play
Was seriously addicted to candy crush but couldn't get past level 210 and eventually gave it up. I would go back to it if I could get past that level

I love word games and challenge games.

But most of all, I love Castle Story.

Castle Story (favorite)
Tribez and Castles
Ice Age
My Singing Monsters
Jurassic Park (before they got greedy)
Started Farmstory2, will see.
Mainly CS, though, limited time available.
Also, it would be nice to be able to play CS offline, like Tribez and Tribez and Castle, because Wifi may not be always available.

08-06-14, 07:36 AM
Right now aside from castle story from TL I also really enjoy restaurant and bakery story. I was playing FS2 but quit yesterday as the luck component is just too much and it is frustrating to put so much work into a game and not be rewarded

Out of TL I love WWF and farm heroes saga from King.
And really any type of puzzle or strategy game really like 2468 or card/word games.

I like games where I have the option to play as much or little as I want so that on days I am free there is a lot I can do, but if I am busy a day I won't be penalized for not playing as much.

Hope this helps!

I've played a few things on my kindle but for iOS, Storm 8 owns the monopoly.

I had played Dragon Story on the kindle but knew I was missing some content so I installed on my phone as a "getting to know you" app. It worked too. I learned how to uninstall things, what that button is next to the volume, how to reboot...before games I just lugged it around because I had too.

So...Dragon Story (totally different game on iOS)
Castle Story (downloaded to get gold on DS but one of my favs now)
Bubble Mania (love the babies saying 'yay' when I free them)
Bingo (Sharkparty- oddly addictive, wait maybe because I'm old)
Fantasy Story (I was a little put off by the idea a horse and a panda could have a baby ferret but the art is good and somehow it feels like an upgrade to DS)

Tried for in game bonuses but did not keep:
Farm Story 2
Jewel Mania
Pool (Shark party)
Candy Crush
Crime Scene Mystery
