Description

To The Castle it's a frantic retro platformer game that takes all the vibrant mood of those good and old platform arcade classics like Ghouls n Ghosts or Megaman with re-imagined controls adapted for handheld devices. You play as Sir Petronius, a brave knight trying to advance through crazy levels jumping, collecting coins, dashing in order to get rid of the enemies and reaching eventually the level exit.There are a variety of levels and traps that will make Sir Petronius' trip more and more dangerous as he moves through the 3 worlds (60 levels) that compound the single player game.With the coins you collect along the levels, you can buy a variety of special power-ups that will help you in your adventure: Shields, Amulets, Hearts, Special attacks... Besides, the game has an integrated level editor where players can create his own dungeons, share them with the rest of the users and receive rewards for it.

History

For almost a year and a half we put a lot of effort working on To The Castle. This is a project that, we think, can bring a lot of fun to the users and even bring some fresh air to the action and platformer gaming scene, specially on the iOS and Android market were the good classic platformers are almost inexistent. On our side we tried to put as much love as passion we could during its entire development and we hope people will enjoy playing this game as much as we enjoyed developing it.So, if...you like dark medieval adventures, with gloomy castles and foggy forests.you love classic retro games like ghousl and ghosts or castlevania.you like puzzles and platformers.you like smartphone games... We're absolutely sure you will like this game!!
