for PC, Xbox One, Wii U, and PS4, Castles
is a multiplayer puzzle-action game published by BadLand Indie
. In a medieval setting 1 or 2 characters have to push or drag blocks to unite them in rows of 3 or more of the same colors (materials) or figures (tools). The player doesn't take direct control of the blocks but instead controls engineers who are tasked with the movement of the blocks, giving a unique twist to the gameplay.
The entire game takes place in a 7 x 7 tower composed of the central trunk (5 x 5) and the exterior 'scaffolding' which is limited exclusively to the players. The blocks fall from above in the central trunk, where the player can move the blocks by pushing or dragging them, always with the objective of creating combinations. When the goals of each level are met, the tower will grow higher, one level at a time. With the growth of the tower new dangers will manifest themselves via changes in climate or tougher enemies. These hazards are generated randomly, so the experience will be different with each gameplay. In Castles, you lose when the central trunk is full of blocks and the player cannot make further combinations of blocks.
