There is a story of a beautiful princess trapped in the castle of a horrible demon. Many brave warriors have fallen trying to face the dangerous traps of the castle to save the princess!

The truth, however, is much more darker: The master of the castle is no one but the princess herself! She uses terrible dark magic to set traps for the hapless heroes who invade the castle, then uses their blood to create new traps!

Can the heroes survive the dangers of the castle and "save" the princess? or worse, take her to some mental care institution? Not if the princess can help it!

Funny but some levels like 13 and 21 are frustrating.

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

this is an obsessing game, it does get pretty nerve racking at times but it's still fair and I enjoyed it. but my bigger question is this what's the mad princess's real name?


Rated 4 / 5 stars

it's a fine game but honestly in the later levels my worst enemy was honestly tremendous lag. like especially at the last 2 levels i lost so many times due to simply being unable to time bombs due to obscene levels of lag which is a problem as particularly vs the king it is virtually impossible to win w/out using bombs+wall on a sliding ledge since there are simply so many foes that all your spikes are worthless and bombs are simply the better buy while occasionally plopping another crossbow when able for more passive damage. Other than the lag however, the game itself is quite fun. The gameplay is simple and yet you have to plan out where to put things to get the most efficient kills and as always gotta keep the princess from getting captured. I would have liked an expansion to this to be honest if the lag issue could be solved as the idea itself is really cool and having more traps could let you do cool things, though the ninjas were 9/10 times the most frustrating foes simply because they could ignore your traps, though the lag issue may have exacerbated the situation due to hitting them w/ the bombs being really hard due to this. overall 4/5 stars, the 1 star lost because the lag REALLY made it unplayable and i've played far more complex games w/out nearly as much lag, though that was honestly the only bad issue i hit

AdventureIslands responds:

This game is one of the earliest titles I made and was made with first version of Stencyl which had notorously bad framerate issues. If I ever create some sort of modern version of the game or a sequel, I'll make sure it runs much, much smoother.

Good game M8. It was difficult, but still beatable. But i think there could me more story in the game, like some dialog in between or before the waves. And the music... it was ok, nothing special for me. Still, nice job.

Also, the last wave is easy if you know where to place your buildings and time your bombs... and f*** that king.
