Defense of Castle Chilly is a Virtual Reality game written specifically with room-scaling in mind
The player uses Archery and Magic to defend the castle from invaders.
Several stand out features will make Castle Chilly different to any other wave defender you've played.
(One feature I'm excited about, is that this is a 100% room-scale walking experience, no 'blink' style teleportation. Magic doorways are your passage to other rooms, you'll be walking in circles and back and forth in the real world, but exploring a vast castle and battlefield in the virtual world!)
Skill and intuition are a must if you expect to stand in the way of the invading forces.
The bow and arrow mechanics are far more involved than your average archery shooter - it's up to you to keep your quivers re-stocked, and to learn advantageous techniques like speed-loading, enchanting, as well as plenty of unadvertised tricks that I hope you get the pleasure of discovering yourself
In Defense of Castle Chilly, the invading forces goal is the castle gate, so in that way this is a defender game, but they're not exactly going to just let you stop them - so you'll also need to defend yourself at times as well, while still ensuring the castle itself remains safe!
But wait! it takes time to mount an attack - while the enemy is busy regrouping, you are granted time to explore the inside of the Castle! find useful tools and upgrades to help you fight, discovering mystical rooms and unlocking the castles secrets along the way.
The overall experience is Defense, Survival, and Discovery.
Game Modes :
- Endless: The goblin army mounts their attacks in progressvely more difficult waves. There is time inbetween each wave for you to explore the interior of the castle to resupply, solve puzzles and explore. Items found within the castle may differ slightly each time you play.
If you die, the game is over. If the castle gate is breached - you will fall back inside the castle to protect the throne until your inevitable defeat (see also 'Last Stand')
- Last Stand: This mode allows you to skip the rest of the gameplay and go straight to a variation of the throne room scenario (this is when the castle has been breached, and it is your duty to protect the throne until your last breath).
In 'Last Stand' there is no rest, and nowhere to run, just you standing between the throne and the invading forces. Kill as many as you can, survive as long as possible!
Play Styles :
- Classic Mode: Take full advantage of the advanced archery techniques previously described. You have a Hip & Back quiver and must properly manage your supply of arrows. This allows for cool techniques like speed-shooting and spell stacking, and also means improved arrows can be found and used
- Arcade Mode: If you aren't too keen on reloading, or you find classic mode tedious or difficult, play Arcade instead - you have only a back quiver, and your arrows are unlimited (no reloading!), just casual shoot'em'up fun! however you won't be able to take advantage of advanced techniques or improved arrows. The interior of the castle will also be simplified to remove irrelevant items
