One of the more addictive games on the Windows Store is now available as a freeware. Download Castle Raid 2 free while you can, as this special promotion expires in a couple of days.
This is part of Microsoft’s Red Stripe Deals campaign, by the way.
Optimized for tablets and touch, the game offers a very feature rich package, including single device multiplayer (more games should have this), twenty different battlegrounds and tons of obstacles for you to charge through like barricades, turrets and more.
The game description reads something like this:
“In this unique tug-of-war you once again fight to defend your castle against the enemy’s hoard. Get ready to enter the magical world of noble knights and sage wizards, dragons and assassins, and set out on a new epic adventure. Fight your way through the snow covered lands of the Frozen Plains and the beautiful open fields of the Greenland.”
It works on all modern versions of Windows, meaning Surface RT and Surface 2 owners can take it for a spin without any issues. And the system requirements for the x86 and x64 platforms are not too high either, owning to its 2D nature.
Which also means crisp, bright and delightful visuals.
That said, the game is not without issues. Minor ones, admittedly. For example, the fun and enjoyment ends as soon as you upgrade your peasants, as you no longer get resources from them. An update is the need of the hour.
Regardless, this game is totally worth it for the $1.99 price it retails for regularly. For free, this is just a must download. Get it during this special promotion while you still can from here.
