Great.. but doesn't save to the cloud People these days often have multiple devices (phone and tablet), syncing to the cloud (google drive) seems critical to me. Note, I can 'sort of' get around this limitation using my rooted devices and Helium but even that's sort of a pain if you're going to switch between devices often. Fun game though so keep up the great work. Please work on a sync feature!

What? Why on earth is this writing 20 megabytes of data to my internal storage as I play it? I can't afford to clog my phone up this much, games need to exist primarily on the SD. I'm really disappointed that I have to uninstall this. It was great and I put so many hours in.

Tom Cleveland

Not bad The gameplay mechanics could use some tweaking, and for such a simple game, it seems to pull a great deal of system resources, enough to slow down my Nvidia Shield tablet, but not an awful way to kill time

Kate Wagner

Cool! This is definitely the most unique tower defense game I've played. I like the gameplay, and at first I was frustrated by the lack of healing ability, but then I discovered the right upgrades. Now I really enjoy playing! I just wish they didn't force you to watch an ad or pay to get rid of ads. Optional ads = yay, forced ads = annoying.


It's pretty good. Not the best game but it's good. You do nothing but move around while your small group follow closely and do all the work for you and keep them from getting to tower to destroy it. It's sort alike rpg tower defense. It's nice change pace from all tower defense which is same thing all over. This one is different.

Zephyr Sprint

Awesome! \m/ This game is so much fun I got hooked the moment I started playing. I especially like the soundtrack and the various guitar licks as you spawn allies and cast spells. This is one of the few games I would consider paying money for, not just to get rid of the ad's, but because it's a decent, well made game that deserves it. However. The first few times I tried playing, i got to the second stage in the tutorial and instead of summoning an archer when I pressed LT + X it brought up the pause menu. I resumed the game and tried to summon an archer again but the game just paused again the moment I hit X. Eventually I figured out I could use the right thumbstick to bring up the cursor and select the units/spells but it's really awkward. I noticed in the "what's new" notes above that an issue was fixed with the B button on the nvidia controller; well I'm afraid to say there now appears to be an issue with X button as well. If this can be fixed then I'll knock this review up to 5 starts and probably buy the golden axe, but at the moment it's kinda difficult to play when you need to stop moving to bring up the cursor to use a spell or summon a unit.


Great take on a TD game Many upgrades, good unit selection, and a unique take on tower defense makes it hard to put down. Uninformative tutorial gives a slight learning curve for about 10 minutes, and ads go away if you spend anything. Free play is great and spending a couple bucks makes it better. Well done for a mobile game.

Ege Baysal

love it awesome addictive and really fun to play+ Love the musics

Graham Fenech

I like the game, but.. The X button on the shield controller brings up the settings menu instead of summoning units. If this gets fixed, I'll buy the full version!

Jason Bean

Fun but insistent Cool variant of tower defense but a little insistent with ads.

Andrzej Marzec

Could be 10/10, but controls need work. Static joystick is meh, dynamic is worse (finger covers too much of the screen). Could use some work. Why no support for keyboards? Apart from this game is great.

Alexander Willette

My favorite App! Everything about this is great the only thing you should do is make it better! Keep it up! :)

Steve Tom

Fun mix of tower defense and action So far having a lot of fun. Freemium game but purchases not required. I just unlocked the wizard!

Mac Rogers

10/10 best game 2014 So good. Only recommendation is that ninjas should go behind Brad, like archers.

Dorian Ellis

Keeps getting better Finally beat the game and even more unlocks! Should of been advertised on TV like some of the other popular ones...

randy rittenhouse

Cool I like it all around. Good artistic style, good game play, good music.

Ahmed Hayki

Excellence mixed with badass-ery There's nothing more to say except keep up to good work. An excellent fun game to play especially on the Nvidia Shield Portable. So much time shall be spent playing this game on the toilet!

Teo Ritola

EXCEPTIONAL! Fresh idea and best music ever. I'll make my kid play this when I'm bored just to heat the music. 6/5

Mike Fallon

unique really good unique very well rounded one has legs tho so thats a thing

Marvin Han

Great game but can you put like a note of heal of some kind and can you put like a uprage that uprage the slots for how many people you can use in battle

Tobias Svärdh

So fun! Just wished you saved all in the cloud instead of just locally. Now I have to start all over

Sam Won

Very pro, much music, wow F2p, sure, but it feels pretty fair so far. Very fun and cute, plays perfectly on a touchscreen

Steven Waldrip

Amazing! One of the games I've seen in a while that I can actually, at the very least, tolerate. This game is addicting, unique, it is perfect for me! Amazing game!

ʕ •ᴥ•ʔ Natan

Fantastic However, a slight improvement could be made. The controls are very inaccurate. For example, as you run in the minigames , you constantly have to let go of your screen to change directions. Still a great game

Christina Raimondo

INSANE As i opened this game, i thought i was going to hate it... Welp, gave it a couple minutes, aannddd I'm absolutely addicted... def worth the chance.. and the music is great!

Joey Garcia

All hail the ratcoon! This game is fun and addictive. I have a few force quits, and it takes a while to load sometimes, but its worth it for sure! It's actually one of the 3 games in all of my cell phone history that I have felt were good enough to put money into

Kody Brysch

Awesome concept. Finally something new to the app store. Reminds me of A Bards Tale.

anthony burke

I rarely give 5* but this game is total badassery! Run around and rock out to inspire your troops to maim kill and obliterate your enemies. Multitudes of character unlocks, massive upgrades to troops, your hero, and even upgrade the town to throw the shop owners and Town folk into the Frey! Love it!

Mihai Petrescu

One problem Good get but keeps crashing now. I hope it will be fixed d soon

Jacob Averi

Really fun game. You definitely need upgrades but you can earn gold super quickly playing the survival and endless modes.

Lizo Mzimba

Challenging! I really like this game. I like it enough to actually make an in-app purchase, in order to both get rid of the ads & show my appreciation of the game. If you download this, you won't regret it!

Luis Hernandez

Sweet idea! I like this game because the music is catchy and the game play is nice and smooth. Highly recommended!

James Baird

Excellent Very fun game - just wish it had cloud saves so that I could play on either my tablet or phone.

Kevin Travis

Not sure if im progressing I dont know if there is a story or plot to progress through, but so far I have had fun buying upgrades and playing. The enemies get faster and 2 hit everything after a few minutes. Hopefully more upgrades will remedy that. Will update my review in the future.

Amelia Miller

slow loading but.... Very fun game once loaded. Slow loading for everything but fun overall.

Garret Boyd

Great game definitely will buy A lot of fun right from the start! Quick and easy to pick up and play.

david willems

Really fun Easy to learn and good difficulty curve f2p but not p2w great game.

Rahim Somani

Fun game Good waste of time

Arunas Rinkevicius

It's a cool game i really like it


Outstanding. This game is brilliant. I don't usually write reviews, but I just had to on this game. I'm unsure, whether it's a team that worked on this or was it a single developer, but the idea is genius. It is single-handedly one of my top 5 games I have ever played on mobile. One quick thing though - I haven't gotten far into the game yet, but I have the upgrade that opens the two shops at the top. And it's sometimes a little hard to notice the drops at them. Would be nice if they had some sort of a glowing outline.

Sarah Kettner

Easily addictive Great game... I find myself playing on loop, easy to get lost in

Jimmy Lotts

Just fun Very inventive and the music isn't bad at all. You run around just playing music and dodging attacks and your team does all the fighting.

Chuhue Thao

Fun game but... The game itself is fun. It is kind of like a "bullet hell" game where you must shoot the enemies as they head towards your home. The reason why I gave it a two is because there is a problem with the game where it'll constantly keep your phone in a wake lock consuming tons of battery. For some reason the game constantly runs in the background and wakes up your phone. I noticed a drastic battery drain after installing this app.

Joshua Townsend

Lots of fun. Not a pay to play game. I love it, mechanics are fun, and it's a very fun game.

Ruben Casas

Crazy Man Crazy(cool voice) Shred lute. Collect loote. Enough said. Easy going. Enjoy the Bardbarian as he Shreds.


pls fix controller I love the game but 3 stars for now. pls fix the controller support for steelseries stratus xl..I cant summon units by pressing the l2 and x y or b but instead I tap it on screen which really sucks so pls fix it and pls reply asap

Kevin Mye

Fun game game to play, im hooked. However cannot press X to summon/song on my Shield controller, forces the pause menu to appear so have to touch

Jason Farmer

Incredible game Fun, engaging, and this is the second phone I put it on. Do wish bard moved faster in survival mode tho. At least make the speed upgrades count

Ryan Giles

Shell razor is broken I was playing the game, and when I went to go use shell razor he doesn't shoot at anything..... I would happily put money towards the game, if the units actually worked properly

John Benson

Well... The game looks great and after reading the comments I was excited to play! Unfortunatly, the game wouldn't make it past the first loading screen after pushing 'play' so I never got to find out for myself. I'll check back in a couple weeks and try again!

squidthekid mpd

Awesome little game I play it all the time in my portable gaming console.

madhu kumar

Best ever free to play game Really loved this game. Awesome. But 1 thing still needs to be done. Bard dies soon. So make an equipment so that he doesn't die fast. Or heal him. Not through healer, but through some other ways.

Damar Rudd

Racon is cool I'm loving the game so far. It lags a little when I pic my save for some reason but other then that I haven't been having any problems

Nicholas Vogel

Just wow. This is a great game. I haven't put forth the cash for the gold axe, but I'm leaning towards it. Keep up the great work. Needs either some more levels, newer, abilities, or some new units. Once I got through it, hard core was just a little more monotonous. But overall I really love the game!

Ben Besas

Over 9000 I think a cool update in this game is that the ratcoon can attack near enemies in the loot and yeah I like the graphics and the game may be hard to control but I enjoyed it

Larissa Gill

Addictive, well made indie game. Bard looks like my boyfriend. This plays like an RPG, tower defender, beat em up/dungeon crawler. It's pleasingly challenging. Slay enemies to drop coins and music notes used for different upgrades. Characters are great. Give it a go!

Wolf Blood

Amazing Game Fun, addictive, and challenging, It challenges you to pick and upgrade the best team, it's addictive because you can play endlessly and still have fun with a challenge! 10/10 would rate again. ☺

Jenny Ehlenfeldt

Amazing! There was a point in time where I had to delete this game do to storage and now after redownloading it I can't even believe I had deleted it

Chris Bowen

Fun Very fun. Moving can be akward but probably gets better with upgrades.

Connor Mallonee

A unique game amidst a sea of generic titles Even after years of browsing the Google play store, I have yet to come across a game like this. It controls well, the resource gain is fair, and the units are powered just right. I don't feel like I need microtransactions to succeed. I suggest you grab this game right now.

Josh Maletic

Almost Perfect I REALLY wish there was a way to transfer save games because I recently only found out that bardbarian is on android and since I've been playing it on my iPad. IS there any way to transfer my game from iOS? Other than that this game is great, awesome progression in game, it is properly hard making me want to play over and over again. Other than that the game just repeats everything in the 20+ rounds but makes it remarkably harder. Could you add something else to the storyline such as new bosses enemies? ?

Eleanor MacVeigh

Addictive Great game. Great soundtrack. Only complaint is that I had to do a factory reset and lost my entire game and now I have to start from scratch because there's no restore option... Very annoying. But an otherwise good game.

Great game, however... How the hell can I get the achievement I am Legend. I have made it to the second day in insane mode and survived some days... How can I then post this?


Really fun I wish it kept going though. I wish there were save points for Day 2. I wish I could have even more upgrades. I have so much money and nothing to spend it on!

James Hoggarth

Awsome! This is my favourite app game on android =) I keep coming back to it. I didn't need to pay for the upgrade but I did because I thought these guys deserved the money =)

Ken Landree

Pretty addictive Re-download after a year of not playing, and some of the bugs have been fixed and I'm loving the game again.

Hallie Dodd

Fun but... Needs more the main character needs to be able to inflict damage as well instead of just standing there like a dunce waiting for everyone else to fight or for the bad guys to kill him.

Jonathan Pye

Great game. Just beat the game.. or did I lol love this game have 13hrs on it an still going I hope to see an update or more great games from you guys keep it up.

Christopher Knight

Great game. Great music. The first time I played this an hour went by before I realized it. It's a simple concept but the game is still challenging. Get it. You can thank me later.

Robert Lablah

Was A Fun game I did enjoy this. Since there is no direct feedback in game, I'll do it here. For some reason pause and summon/spell are BOTH X button. So you can't summon or use the spell bound to it. Since there is no way to change buttons, game is unplayable.

Benny Cassidy

Cool. Couldnt claim my first troll kill bonus 2.5k gold.. but ill blame my laggy phone for that.

Wesley Harris

Great game I have this game on my kindle and love it! Now I can play it when I'm out and have10 or 15 minutes to kill.

Josh Thornton

Fun...but the ads are absolutely ridiculous. I get having ads but the video interruptions they constantly put in here assures I won't be spending mone

Asteroidss GT

Good game. This is cool game. I can upgrade many things. And I can get so much money from playing

Charles Kim

it's gud but there's problems it's a good game but there's a ton of bugs with the xbox 360 controller support
