The Game

The hordes are coming! Wave after wave of goblins, skeletons, zombies, snakes, wizards and all manner of creatures from the nether dimensions are attacking our castle. It is up to you to save us from the onslaught using our defensive towers!

Enemies will emerge from the portal and move along the path to our castle. Place different tower types that automatically attack anything that gets within their range.

Destroyed enemies will give a little gold each, but letting an enemy reach our castle will reduce our life count by one.

Be careful as resources are limited and the powers of darkness grant some of their servants the ability to resist damage. Wear down their shields before they can be destroyed in a fiery explosion.

There are three tower types that have various attributes and deal different amounts of damage. Towers cannot be destroyed once built, so choose wisely.

The status area shows the enemy types to expect in this wave, tower statistics and the shield and strength of the enemy nearest the castle.
