I am a fiend for good phone games. Ones that don't require you to watch an ad every two minutes, make you wait to play, or subtly brain wash you into paying for in game currency. Those are bullshit, we're not talking about those games.
There are far more things that can ruin a phone game, than make it fun. In my lifetime, I have only found a handful of consistently fun phone games. Today, I am here to tell you that I have found another.
This is not your fathers Tower Defense game. It's kinda like Plants vs. Zombies, but I never played that game so I don't really know.
Basically you got a wall that you have to defend against nearly infinite waves of enemies. The enemies vary, and get stronger the higher wave you reach, pretty obvious. There are also bosses that come in at random waves to challenge your walls fortitude.
Matching the varying enemies, is the varying types of heroes. A hero is those guys standing on the wall will the blue "health bar" looking things floating over their heads. Most of these heroes each have a standard attack or a special ability that can be activated by tapping the hero.
This is all pretty basic, where the game differs from others I've played is the ads. In Grow Castle you have the option of viewing a video ad. You don't have to if you don't want to, but the game rewards you with in game currency if you do decide to watch it. The game gives you a hefty amount of in game coinage if you do watch the video. Not 30 coins or 100, they give out thousands and the more you play the game the more they will reward you for watching ads. The last coin reward I got for watching a 30 second ad was 23,000.
If you're looking for something to kill time with, then I would definitely tell you to get this game. It's perfect for taking a shit, ignoring somebody, riding in an Uber. It is the summers perfect way to disconnect from all reality, and now that the 4th has passed, you don't need to go outside anymore.
