There are achievements and items that you can pay for but they’re not mandatory.  In Castleville you just perform game actions and then watch as you can post to your friends on Facebook that your Castleville character needs new magical items or other such objects and if they’re playing the game they can click on those comments and send those items and get one in return.

The graphics are lush in color and comical in design in Castleville.  The art team and designers really went all out to provide a unique style and entertaining environment from the designs of your main character to those of the denizens of your kingdom.  There are knights, damsels, ice monsters and more.  Horses, cows, pigs, weasels, all of which are animated and not static gives the game a living presence and fun for children and adults alike.  Families can work and play together and you can customize your avatar to wear all sorts of costumes.  It’s so funny to see your friends and family members pop into your kingdom which you must build and defend and they help out by fighting monsters or helping you tend crops or any number of fun activities.

These games have become so addictive that people spend hours per day on them.  The sounds, memes, slogans and graphics are now part of the online and offline lexicon.  Facebook fans love to tease each other about playing these games especially Castleville and Farmville.   The sheer number of people playing these games is unknown but it has to be in the tens of millions and it wouldn’t be a surprise if it was 100 million or so.  The reason being the games are free and easy and fun.  The benefits of the game is that you get taught patience, planning, communication, strategy and interaction with a  community of your friends and you can also make friends.

There are Castleville parties where people dress up and serve foods that you’ll find in the game like tomatoes, potatoes, grape juice, strawberries.
