Krinkle Krusher brings a little something different to the tower defense/castle defense genre, with a colorful and fun set of animations. But the high difficulty early on is extremely frustrating and a major turnoff. The controls, which work best on the PS Vita, can be challenging and may hinder your progress; in fact, it's way too easy to accidentally cast the wrong spell, potentially enhancing Krinkles when you're trying your best to eliminate them. On top of these gameplay issues, the dialogue is cheesy, and the Glove constantly yells things such as "Krinkletastic!" and "Krinkemania!" as you destroy enemies. If you can work past these problems, the strategy becomes more complex and interesting, giving you a chance to upgrade your spells to handle the variety of Krinkles that come your way. Krinkle Krusher has a decent premise and some engaging strategy, but its serious implementation issues ruin the experience.
