Crazy Kings Review: Mildly Unruly

Pocket Gamer’s review of the tower defense game Crazy Kings notes that the app plays it safe by adding few new concepts. This is either good or bad depending on your view of tower defense titles.

Crazy Kings is symptomatic of the iteration culture on the App Store. It’s a little step forward, and if you like tower defence games you’ll probably lap it up. If you don’t, it’s just more of the same.
