About this game

Developer: Whootgames
Content Rating: Everyone


Castles is an exciting puzzle game with high doses of action, set in a fantasy medieval world. Up to two players have to match rows of 3 or more blocks with the same color or tool. The players don’t control blocks, instead, they control the “engineers”, which makes for a very different game experience. The whole game takes place in a 7×7 block grid, in which the perimeter is limited exclusively to the character movement. Blocks will fall from above onto the central 5×5 grid, where the player have to push and pull them in order to make combinations. If you complete the level goals, the tower grows taller. As it grows, different challenges in the shape of weather effects or enemies will get in the way. These challenges will be randomly generated, so you’ll never play the same game twice. In Castles, you lose the game when the 5×5 grid gets full of blocks. Play the Adventure mode to follow the story and defeat Kind Edmund, or the Survival mode where the challenge is to build the tallest tower. If you want to play against a friend you could try Battle mode, where each player builds a tower and tries to ambush his opponent.

Castles is in a very unfortunate release as it is highly derivative of a very tired formula, yet at the same time does things worse than most of the games that came before it. Having the player control a character that pushes the blocks leads to an enormous amount of undue frustration and makes this somehow even less palatable. Even when they try something kind of new, it just doesn't lead to the kind of pay off that it should. It is just a stale, uninteresting game in a stale, uninteresting genre. Perhaps the most rabid of match-three enthusiasts might get a kick out of this, but this castle is one that should just be torn down.
