Castles is about the last stand of civilization against barbarism. A hundred barbarians are charging towards your castle. A handful of barricades, a wall, and a small band of heroes must hold the barbarians back.

Castles is a turn-based strategy wargame of using limited reinforcements to shore up collapsing defenses, and using the enemy's aggression to keep them away from your castle.

There are three unit types: Knights are fast strike units: they can move up to the front line quickly, and can kill many Barbarians before dying. Pikemen are cheap defensive units: they block the advance so other units can kill. Archers fire from a distance: any Barbarian in 2 spaces can be killed.

What's New in Version 2.0

+ Game state is saved on quit, continued on launch.
+ Game balance improvements to Knights and Archers!
+ Knights now degrade to Pikemen when "killed" in battle.
+ Archers can't attack, but hit more often. Remember, Archers fire after your turn is done, so leave them within 2 spaces of (but not next to) a Barbarian!
+ Multiple art themes: Knights, Monsters, and Retro.
+ Cleaner UI.

Customer Reviews

Needs two things

First is that you should start out with 25-30 gold. Second is that you should start out with like one of each character to help out because it is so hard to win. This would give the players a chance to try and win. Please try to work this out. Thanks.

it's pretty good.

I think it's an okay game. It's best on the monster setting. It's slow paced, and theres only one kind of enemy. Like i said, it's okay. Probably not worth the cost.

Pretty cool

Low pace, casual game. Nice and relaxing
