Defend Your Castle Coming to WiiWare
Posted by Damien McFerran
XGen Studios has announced that its successful Flash-based game Defend Your Castle is WiiWare-bound and will launch alongside the new service in May (North America) at a cost of 500 Wii points.
As the title suggests, the game involves you defending your castle against hordes of attackers. You can do this by grabbing them and flinging them skywards - something that was fun to do with a mouse input but should be even better when using the Wiimote. You can also improve the strength of your fortress and fire projectiles at the oncoming enemies. XGen has confirmed that the WiiWare version will feature better graphics and new abilities.
Skye Boyes, president, XGen Studios, had this to say about the news:
We’re thrilled to announce that the classic game play enjoyed by Millions is coming to your living room in the form of a new title with compelling additions.
We’re taking advantage of the creative freedom afforded by WiiWare to bring fans a captivating co-op game, with great competitive elements and irresistibly charming art direction.
Jordan Dubuc, director of operations for XGen Studios, added:
We can’t wait to show fans what we’re building. The jump-in, jump-out casual style appeals to a broad audience for both quick and extended play sessions.
More support for WiiWare, then - but the game will have to be seriously improved if XGen expect gamers to pay 500 Wii points for something that is available on the internet for free.
