Grow Castle is a mobile tower defense game. Don’t be fooled by its stickman graphics, the game is actually fun and requires careful strategy instead of just maxing out one type of tower or unit. The wide variety of options that open up different possible ways of gameplay set Grow Castle apart from your usual tower defense experience.

Grow Castle Cheats, Tips & Tricks – 2018
Grow Castle Upgrade Guide
You might be confused as to what to upgrade given how many units and tower are available in Grow Castle. Let me guide you on what are some of the best choices to ensure your castle’s survival.
Do not underestimate the power of your Town Archers. They fire constantly without pause and are essential in destroying bosses and enemy castles. Focus on upgrading these guys first in the early stages of the game.
The next order of business is to upgrade your castle. This increases your HP and MP. Another good thing in doing this is that it adds additional slots for new towers and heroes, and later you’ll be given access to leaders and town buildings.
Towers provide that extra punch to your defensive capabilities. You can have a maximum of four towers and some of them evolve to a new class when upgraded. Towers that damage multiple enemies like the Thorn Worm, Thunder Tower, and Cannon make short work of large waves.
Leaders are the units on horseback that are deployed in front of your castle. They charge headfirst towards the enemy ranks and fight until their health expires. As of now there are four to choose from, three of them have passive abilities that benefit the rest of your defenses. There are instances when the first Leader (Edward) freezes and stops fighting until he dies. I’m not sure if this is a bug or what, so keep that in mind before spending 50,000 Gold on him.
Grow Castle Hero and Abilities Tips
Heroes are the stick figures with a blue bar above their heads. Each hero is equipped with a unique ability that is activated when they are tapped. At the start you are given the Knight, Ogre, and Lightning Mage. You can unlock a maximum of twelve slots for heroes.
There are many heroes to choose from depending on what kind of play style you adhere to. But regardless of how you play, you should not ignore heroes that summon units like Tiny Giant and Knight. These guys impede the progress of enemy units so your defenses could riddle them full of holes before they can reach your castle. The Skull Ring item boosts the damage of your summoned units by 50%
Upgrading heroes increases their damage and enhances their abilities. Some heroes have a class upgrade when you reach a certain level. This further boosts their capabilities and also adds passive bonuses that benefit other units and heroes. It is generally ill-advised to upgrade heroes right off the bat. Not only is this expensive but it also increases the mana cost of their abilities. You should save this for later when you are swimming in Gold.
Hero abilities are best used in conjunction with each other. For example the Knight’s summoned fighters can be strengthened by the Priest’s buff. With a maxed out Cooldown skill and an upgraded White Wizard (his ability reduces cooldowns) you can deploy these fighters real fast.
The third tier of Ice and Lightning Mages unlock the passive ability Elemental Fusion. This buff enhances the damage of offensive mages who are next to Ice and Lightning. For archers the Dark Hunter (tier 3 upgrade of Hunter) unlocks Archer Trio which boosts the attack speed of fellow bow-wielders next to him. Make sure that you plan ahead so that your passive abilities work for the benefit of your units and heroes.
Grow Castle Map Guide – 2018 Updates
The Map is a side-quest list of sorts where you can perform different tasks in exchange for handsome rewards. Most of the missions here require you to free colonies from enemy castles in exchange for an income of Gold every minute.
The easy missions are the ones with black flags. Battles in this mode involve defending against enemy waves while trying to destroy the castle that spawned them. You’ll need a solid defense that can mow down enemy units quickly so you can focus on attacking the enemy castle.
The icons on the map that denote a sword stuck on a stone rewards items. The ones that look like a stick figure on a bonfire give you new units. The first “sword on a stone” you should finish is the one directly above your first colony with 80 waves. The reward is an item called Ruby which summons a huge golem during battle. This golem does not disappear and deals a percentage of the damage of your Town Archers. Don’t forget to equip your items by tapping on the treasure chest icon.
The blue building icons give Skill Masteries as a reward. These can only be used once you hit level 99 and are essentially substitutes for Skill Points.
Grow Castle Skill Hints
Skills give different permanent passive benefits. As usual do not waste Skill Points on Bonus Gold and Bonus Exp as they’re worthless in the long run.
Max out Damage first and Critical Chance so your defenses can easily tear apart foes. Summoned Unit Damage is great if you’re always popping out fighters. Finally the Town Archer’s Attack Speed makes your Town Archers a more formidable threat.
The Cooldown and MP Recovery skills are for those who like to spam hero abilities. They are not ideal choices during the early parts of the game so don’t bother until you’re well-established.
Grow Castle Gold Tips and Tricks
Gold in Grow Castle is extremely easy to earn. In fact you don’t even need to purchase anything that provides extra Gold during battle (like Tropy and Military Band M). Here are some of the ways to fill your pockets with those shiny coins.
Watch ads whenever they pop up. These videos provide a handsome amount of Gold and the amount increases the more you watch. Make sure that you immediately tap it when the popup appears. There’s a tendency that it will disappear if you click something else when the ad button is around.
The colonies you liberated in the Map area can be developed for a larger income stream. Unfortunately the increments are extremely low and are not a solid investment given how expensive developing these colonies is. Just keep on liberating colonies and do not develop them until later.
Spam the Replay button to farm a map repeatedly. This will net you easy gold without exerting much effort other than tapping the Replay button again once it is done.
Unlike in other games the income of Gold in Grow Castle stops when you close the app. It would be best if you leave the game running overnight so you’ll have mounds of Gold the next day. Also don’t forget to purchase Miners in your town whenever you defeat a boss.
The game does not have any form of premium currency. However there are still hacks and cheats out there that claim to give unlimited Gold. Do not be deceived by these websites or modded APK’s as they are nothing but trouble and can harm your device.
There we go with the cheats, tips and tricks for Grow Castle. Gold is pretty much the name of the game so you better start racking up earnings until you get to millions so you can go on an upgrade frenzy. Choose towers and heroes wisely and remember how to make the most out of their abilities so your castle will not fall. Good luck and have fun!
