Castle Battles streamlines the mechanics of classic, top-down strategy to create a fast paced style of gameplay like no other. Expand your empire by building castles near bountiful resources, collect gold to amass outlandish armies, and swarm your enemies in 40 unique levels.

Explore the illustrated world of “The Great Tapestry” through four story-rich campaigns: Fight to reclaim your lost homeland as Les Moustachiers. Laugh maniacally as The Clearly Evil Empire. Discover the astral mysteries of The Purperilous. And finally, set out on a hero’s journey as The Order of Awesome to stop the narrative from unravelling.

No soulless micro-transactions to help you here! Classic 4X style mechanics are condensed to their strategic core, meaning action packed matches are measured in minutes rather than hours. Thousands of troops can be in action at a time leading to all out swarm warfare.

Enjoy the melding of medieval melodies to the pulse of electronica in the Original Soundtrack by Ex-Static:

Great concept, poor execution!

Loved the idea, and thought I found my new favorite, but once you get about 10 levels in you realize the developers have no idea make a game for user experience. Once the AI starts sending troops in 12 different directions at once and you only can pinch and send one group at a time the game is over. Also if you have 40 troops around your castle, it doesn’t matter most of the time as they will still take your castle while your troops just sit there. Really wanted to continue playing, but this is another example where the focus is on the concept, with no thought on how a human could/would play it.

Thank you personally

I have been trying to fill a void in my heart for a great Fast RTS for years, this is it even though I’ve only played the free portion the combination of hilarious characters, fantastic voice acting, and wonderful personally and simplicity of design have made me a very happy gamer

If you like Auralux or MIRTS, this is the same idea: RTS with a single unit type. But this one is unique in that it has an entertaining story and multiple resources. Definitely worth the price. It does murder my battery though...
