    Very good to know, sir. I initially thought that players get to experience the first campaign free of charge, but then if we want to continue playing, we'd need to buy the next campaign with diamonds. Great to know that all campaigns unlock for free after you've completed each one.

    I was gonna say...not even Zen Studios can be THAT greedy! They ain't no Gameloft or Zynga!

    First of all, hi everybody!..
    Ok, I also think that ads are a part of a game which should be deleted from it... it really doesn't make the user experience better guys - you have to understand it... I suppose that you better make the game not free, but without ads. You can also get rid of too big donation monopoly - 150 gems for a new campaign is too big, heh?.. or I just don't know how to get gems during the game?.. nevertheless, I think you should make no ads and less donation...

    Hi Immortal.

    The frequency of advertising is much better! I'm getting about 1-2 video ads per session and I tend to play 30-60 minutes.

    Thank you.

    The must adjust lots of thing, and One of them is the ad frecuency as they said.
    Yeah, that's true, but even so, there really shouldn't be any advertisements or very limited advertisements in a beta so that we're able to better test out the game and submit feedback/bugs, etc.

    Just saying is all. No excuse for that many advertisements in a beta.

    Ad frequency is something we will adjust during the beta. We would like to find a balance that works for us and our players as well.

    Hello.

    I just started playing CastleStorm yesterday, which I'm really finding quite enjoyable, not to mention the graphics are incredible and with the added cutscenes & really fun gameplay...top-notch work.

    Now about the too many advertisements...seeing how it is a beta, there really shouldn't be any ads to begin with, or very small amount of ads, like maybe 1 every 2-3 missions. It's true that us Android users are getting a chance to play the beta free of charge, but still, it's a beta and you want our feedback so in order to give you our feedback on the game, advertisements shouldn't get in the way. That many advertisements are nothing more than a nuisance, and like the OP mentioned, it can make you not want to play the game. And I already love the game, but the ads...they gotta go, or just limit the frequency of the ads.

    Just my two cents really.

    Thanks, and keep up the great work!

    Ok... I must get a reward for telling this... No, just kidding... to be honest, the game doesnt show any ad for me, in any time. I consumed my data plans Mb, and im conected( when the data bug doesnt make crash the app) with the slow unlimited data.

    Advertising left a negative impression with me.

    Hello! Thanks for allowing me to Beta Test your fine game. I will attempt to stay on topic, but my first impression was feeling blown away by the amazing animation and voice acting. Wow!

    With regards to advertising, I would agree with the original post that it was too much. I found the video ads to be annoying, however the (screen?) ads following the video were tolerable. After playing for about 10 minutes, I had to take a break because I was tired of seeing those video ads. In the current state, I would be inclined to uninstall this game without really getting to experience much of the interesting looking campaign.

    Thank you.

    Today when I signed in for my daily reward was the first time I've experienced this full screen video advertising model in a mobile app. To be honest, if this wasn't Zen, a dev that I like and support, and if this wasn't CastleStorm, a game that I've already enjoyed on Xbox 360 & Steam, than I'd normally uninstall the app asap. Certain types of advertising simply rub me wrong and this is one. Since I didn't actually play after accepting my daily reward, I don't know how prevalent these ads actually are. Is it just the one time at startup or is it a constant deluge as goddimus's post suggests? I'd find the latter to be completely unacceptable.

    Yeah, I also prefer pay for upgraded/full versions of any apps that I like, but if getting the experience with the trial or F2P version needed to make that evaluation is too much of a hassle, then I wouldn't even bother.
