    Hello fellow gamers!

    We at Broken Kings are excited to let you guys know that we submitted the update to Castle Conflict to Apple this last Friday. It was quite the ride to get it submitted, and we will admit that it took much longer to get to this point that we hoped. So much so that we are looking to restructure a lot of things so that we can get much quicker at developing and turning around products.

    But - while we wait for Apple to update the application, we have a bunch of promo codes that are good with the current version that will go to waste. So we'd love to share those promo codes with you guys :)

    A screenshot to whet the thirst of those of you who have been awaiting the new update:

    This new update takes place in a large forest, and we've focussed on tree based strategies for the new units. Remember the archer and the planter balloon? We've got a couple new surprises in store for players who enjoyed that.

    We truly believe that Castle Conflict is the best game of it's style (Castle Defense) on the app store right now, due to the additional strategy added by the inclusion of resources, the variety of units, and number of levels. Don't believe us? Then give the game a shot! We'd love to hear what you think, how we can improve, etc.

    And now, on to the promised promo codes. Here's five for starts. After we receive feedback on the game, we will post five more :D


    All promos taken - more given once feedback is received

    Please note that when Apple approves the update, these promo codes will no longer be valid.

    I must admit it's a bit disappointing - I'm hoping to get some good conversation going with you guys but the promo codes seem to just entice people to come into the conversation, grab a promo code, and leave without a word.

    So let's talk about the game a bit. For those who have played, what are some good strategies you have found?

    Sorry about your results. Lots of times promo codes do generate conversation, but it seems like only about 20% leave immediate feedback.

    Please don't lose faith in the TA community - many of us are very good about sharing our impressions and giving feedback.

    I haven't played Castle Conflict yet, but it's on my wishlist. It looks like a very polished app.
    :)

    I have had this app for a couple months now and I really enjoy it. It offers just the right amount of challenge. The units are all balanced nicely. The art style is really neat too. Sorry I can't think of much else to say, it's really late here and my brain just isn't functioning like it should. Anyway the game is great and easily worth the price u payed for it.

    We had it free for a little while on Free App A Day so a lot of people who aren't necessarily interested in strategy games downloaded it and rated it poorly. It happens :)

    Glad to hear some of the positive feedback. Let's test that 20% rule ... here are 10 more promo codes, hoping for 2 feedbacks (that's bad english for sure!)

    Okay, I know I said I'd submit feedback in 24 hours, but I already love it. I've conquered 6 castles and am busily adding units and upgrading my castle. And I really HATE thieves. :)

    The graphics are great - crisp, clean and appealling. Also, they scale really well on my iPad (and I'm really picky about that)!

    I've posted my review on iTunes and I'll add more feedback here as I progress. Thanks again for the code, and I can't wait for the update!

    Any idea exactly when it will be released?!? :D

    Just wanted to say that I've had this game for months, ever since the original version came out and I agree it's the best in the genre on the app store. Lots and lots of fun and I'm stoked on this update!

    I'd beaten the game a while ago and then forgotten about it all together, can't wait to play the updates!

    I love using thieves and they play a key role in my strategy. Would love to see a thief dropping balloon! Or just a thief balloon for that matter... hmm...

    It's been submitted for four days, Apple typically is able to get things out in about a week. So it should be out in the next three days.

    The biggest difficulty is the art. We've talked about it, and it's not something Josiah thinks he would be able to undertake for a little while. In the meantime, we've been talking with another artist who is interested in doing the art, so we'll see where those talks go.

    Castle Conflict is a great strategy game which reminds me of Crystal Wars.
    The game is balanced with nice progression difficulty. It has tremendous gameplay value and becomes extremely challenging. It is unwise to use the same units for every level, and even just choosing the units you want to build at a particular time in a level can lead to victory or defeat.

    One thing that can be improved is the audio. There isn't much music to set the mood and give the game a really nice feel. The sound effects are alright, but I think there could be more, like giving you units things to say or a unique sound that only they make.

    The art style is really the main thing I don't like. It is too much like doodle graphics, which sucks in every which way. Here I am with one of technologies greatest achievements including retina display and I am forced to look at doodle graphics? No thank you. Don't get me started on games like Doodle Jump. :( Look at Crystal Wars, it has really nice graphics. The menus and user interface would aslo benefit from a better looking art style. A good art style just gives the game a polished feel that is enjoyable to look at and very pleasing to the eye.

    Other than that it is a nice game that would benefit from content updates that expand the number of levels and give the player more to play. The forest update should be a great addition to the game.
