    not in the beginning you don`t. Click and hold in the green circle then drag back. Release to shoot.

    I started playing two days ago, about an hour each. Rank 7, level 15.

    I`ve been waiting a long time for this game and I have to say that I`m pretty disappointed. It just feels too slow and stiff for some reason. The first game was much more fun.

    gets too laggy 1 minute into the level, and needs more upgrades like buildings you build.
    Rank 6, level 12.

    Foot Soldiers seem to be the only ones who can take flags...Slow as hell though. Hard to level them up...but then again, maybe `cause I always shot down the enemy troops before mine can hit attack them.

    The horsemen run faster and can take the flags, too. A little frustrating that the enemy castle blocks your arrows, but generally pretty fun. I wish some of the arrows would cycle faster (e.g. the fire and ice arrows when you have to hit the ice/fire flying horsemen - miss your first shot and you`re kinda screwed.)

    The one thing tht really annoyed me was that if your castle gets destroyed you lose, but if you destroy the other castle nothing happens.

    I like this. So much fun headshotting a row of enemies killing the whole wave in one hit. But how does the enemy castle matter in the game? Nothing happens if you take it down!

    I hate the enemies that hide behind the castle! I have to destroy the castle and then I can finally hit them. I like this game though.

    I thought it was fairly ace, a little slow but still damn good fun. The castle blocking arrows was a little bit of a problem but didn`t detract too much from gameplay and added a little extra challenge to the earlier levels and a little extra fear to the later!

    it was good for awhile, i got to lvl 21 but i had all of the upgrades so i quit after that, rank 11

    Best Upgrades:
    archers
    trebuchet
    bomb arrow
    fire/ice arrow
    fire/ice wave
    pierce arrow
    meteor or comet

    worst crap of all:
    flak bomb (use regular arrows against flying enemys)
    bomb wave

    if you`re having trouble killing the ice/fire monsters on the higher levels, remember to kill the healers first

    also its important to get at least a comet or meteor arrow early on in case you have a lot of enemys about to overrun your base

    The game is fun, but the pace needs to be picked up a bit. It`s far too slow. And the enemies hiding behind the castle are a pain, there should be some way to combat them.

    at the moment i am rank 10 lvl 20 i like the bomb arrow and beleive it is most effective, the comet, meteor is ok but way to slow on the reload, my tatics are to shoot fire/bomb arrows at castle while shooting enimys down while these reload, this way you take down the castle slowly and fend of attacks. i need a few more upgrades but i enjoyes it, good post

    difficulty: not so hard, keeps me on my toes
    Current over veiw: stillchallengine, i have found a good way to whipe out enemy forces Completely. First, make sure u have peircing arrow and flame wave, then

    step out of your castle quick
    shoot both and go back insideif your aim is true this should completely wreck your oponents }-)

    i`m only rank 6 atm, but i agree with wtfyousob on his recomendations pretty much. i`ve not used any ice arrows or such yet `cos everyone is so slow anyway lol the bomb arrow is by far the most useful weapon, i think and can take out their castle pretty quick. if taking out their castle does you any good i don`t know lol the bomb wave can be v useful when used correctly, namely when a new enemy wave is just coming on screen. if u hit the front of the wave you will do lots of damage to all the troops following inches behind :D Crowe

    Crowe if youve already bought ice or fire wave you`ll know how much more powerful it is than bomb wave even though they cost the same as one another (i think)

    There are only 30 Missions. Beat it, got to rank 13... fun, repetitive and mind numbing but fun.
    Leaving the castle to take the towers is a very effective `tactic`. Sometimes you have to be quick but it`s worth it. Destroying the enemy castle allows you to shoot behind it. VERY useful when wanting to stop the enemy advance before it starts. On some levels switch your aim to lob the arrows or else you risk nailing your guys in the back. Also if you set your upgraded troops to `auto` then you candrop them down to the 2nd and third tiers to leave room for your arsenal. Troops that can take the flag, Horsemen, Swordsmen, Heavy infantry. The priests and archers tend to not want to go that far towards the enemy. Bomb wave is worth it at the beginning as it damages the enemy castle too, but by far the best arrow is the Meteor against the castle. Fire and Fire wave are good against all enemy, especially so against Ice giants and catapults. Use ice wave to slow the enemy and kill fire giants

    How do you beat the boss? (Or is the strategy not to beat him, and to try to get the flag instead?)

    Start by shooting his big fat belly, he moves really slow so it may take awhile until he gets far enough past the castle. You cannot shoot him in the head with his helmet on.
    Once he gets into range of your troops he will raise his axe, shoot his belly some more but save your bomb arrow.
    He brings his axe down which does a wave attack against your troops, no worries, they can take care of themselves.
    Now here is where you`ll need your bomb arrow, he takes his helmet off to wipe his brow, launch your arrow at his head and when it explodes it`ll knock him down, now get to hitting him while he`s down.
    Rinse and repeat at your leisure.
    What I did was shoot at the castle until he slams his axe, since he moves so slow he never got past mid field against me.
    In the meantime send every other arrow you got at the castle and at any enemy units that run past the big doofus.
    Meteor, bomb, fire and bomb wave works best against the enemy castle

    Thanks.
    I was doing the bombs to the head, but most of my other shots were bouncing off him; I`ll have to try aiming at his stomach.
