Defend the Castle

alt text

  • Defend the Castle is a fast-paced arcade-style video game, with a twist on the classic tower defense genre.
  • An evil wizard has opened portals that are spawning malicious creatures on your King's island. Defend the castle from attacking bats at all costs!
  • The engine and game are written from scratch in JavaScript, and it runs right in your browser.

Running it locally

To get it up and running locally, you'll need to have a local http-server. I use http-server

Once you have http-server installed then:

  • Clone this repo.

  • From the root directory of it, run: $ http-server In your browser, open: http://localhost:8080 and http-server will automatically load the index.html from that directory.

  • Leave http-server running, and whenever you change the code, you can do a hard refresh to run the newly saved code.


  • Feel free to download this code, play with it, and add to the game, etc!

  • res/textures/tiles.png and snow_expansion.png have a ton of extra assets to crop and insert in to the game!

  • If the leaderboards ever gets fubar, use res/leaderboard/leaderboard.json as a template. (and/or submit an issue so that I know!)

You can’t perform that action at this time.
