[ UPDATE 15TH JULY]
Most bugs and changes are out of the way now and i have removed site locking.
[ UPDATE 5TH JUNE]
I think i have finally found a way around the annoying flash player crashing problem please let me know if it still crashes.
[ UPDATE 20TH MAY]
Rebalanced some cards and changed the default deck

[ UPDATE 19TH MAY]
Added another card to make building strategies more feasible
i will attempt to do some re-balancing later and teach the AI to use the new card

[DESCRIPTION]
Castle wars 2.5 is a turn based strategic card game with game mechanics similar to games in the same genre as Heart Stone and Magic, but its simpler and with fewer cards making it easy to learn.

The game contains a campaign where you conquer islands belonging to the different tribes of the game to unlock new cards and achievements. It also features a multi-player part where you can play against people from all around the world testing your decks and skills.

NOTE: IF THE GAME CRASHES AT THE FINAL ISLAND JUST RELOAD THE GAME AND IT SHOULD BE PLAYABLE
(This is a strange Flash player bug, an nothing i can do much about)

[Note form the author]

It’s now 10 years since I made the first castle wars game (writing this makes me feel old!).
What started out as just a weekend experiment to see if I could make my own clone of a little game called Ants turned out to become a hugely popular game.

The Sequel also became popular but never reached the same hype, I guess I did some bad design decisions along the way. In Castle Wars 2.5 I have tried to take the best from both games and merge them into one, I really hope I did things right this time, and hopefully both Cw1 & Cw2 fans can enjoy this blend of the two.

PS. While the Multi-player part is perfectly playable it’s still work in progress, I just wanted to get the game released for the 10 year anniversary

Hope you enjoy the game!

good game but in multiplayer curse is overpowered. taking away 1 person each is bad enough but to add them to the other person... the first one to bring it out decides who wins for the most part

yeah i might have to tweak that one a bit.

For some reason I draw cards twice when I start a game, but other than that I see no problems. This is a really fun game.

There's a bug where the character is riding on elephant on the north, east and south in the map section.

Great game anyways 5/5

Thanks for 5 stars :)

Do you have any idea how i could trigger the bug ?
I would like to fix it but i need to be able to reproduce it in order to understand why it happens :)

Cool game!

I remember playing the original Castle Wars years ago on some website, and it was fun to re-discover the game with this new version!

The gameplay is smooth, the art is satisfying, and even though the rules seemed a bit complex when I first read the tutorial, I quickly understood and I became nearly addicted to the game :D

Keep up the good work! :)

Thanks for the update! It combines each strong points of the last 2 versions very well. Thanks a lot! This is now my favorite version.
