Review Castle Master 2
Clash of Clans meets RPG

Date: 31 Mar 2017, tested on Samsung GT-I9500 Galaxy S4
Quality sound, well-balanced difficulty, dynamic game play
Lags a bit, inconvenient controls
Fighting games are fun, but things start to get really interesting when you add more enemies into the mix. Ever played a fighting game against 2 players at once? How about 300? In Castle Miner 2 for Android you will be able to have massive 300x300 player fights on epic battlefields.
In Castle Miner 2 you will be fighting to defend a castle - you will have a large computer-controlled army by your side, but the relenting forces trying to attack your castle just keep on coming.
The concept sounds great, and in theory it is, but in practice, it is not quite as good as we’d hoped. Unfortunately the huge amount of troops on the battlefield at once does cause lag, even on some of the newest devices, and the animations aren’t particularly that good. On top of this, the player movement and combat controls are quite hard to master, and whilst on the battlefield, things can get overwhelming quite quickly.
However, if you can look past the issues on the battlefield, you’ll find that there is a lot of depth to the character leveling system, and in between defending your castle, you can work on your own land within the castle, growing crops and building a detailed city.
Castle Miner 2 mixes the fun longevity found within games like Clash of Clans with the quick paced action of games like Dynasty Warriors - the result is something that offers a taste of each aforementioned experience, but it fails to match up to either of the experiences of these games.
