Set in medieval times, Goblin Raiders is a comical, physics-based mobile game with a unique and addictive gameplay mechanic that combines both strategy and skill.

The goblin horde will attempt to scale your castle walls. Do whatever it takes to prevent them reaching the top. Smash their heads with rocks, drop poison on them, set them on fire, shoot them with arrows, blow them to smithereens - annihilate them any way you like, the choice is yours!

Goblin Raiders is currently in development and will be unleashed on both iOS & Android based phones and tablets.

  • * Mini Games (Part Of Main Campaign)
  • * Unlockable Survival Modes For Endless Chaos
  • * 8-Bit Style Retro Graphics


Screenshots

Please note: These images may not reflect the final in-game visuals as they are all work-in-progress.



Goblins will walk in from the side and attempt to scale your castle walls.
Quickly drop rocks on them to kill them off before they reach the top







You arrive for your first day of work at Holdich castle where you will be briefed on the current situation






Be prepared as the enemy could strike at any moment during the day or night.
They will progressively get more devious and employ different tactics to avoid being killed







You will be informed about the current war status and any development via official letters from the lord of the realm. From time to time you will also receive letters from various other characters including your beloved fiance






Different castles may have additional weaponry in the form of crossbows and archers which are at your disposal. But beware - some of the goblins can sabotage and even destroy these precious resources so keep an eye on them at all times! Fairies can repair damaged archers and crossbows but there's no telling if or when one will turn up






As you progress through the campaign, the soldiers from the castle's barracks may challenge you to various games as a friendly distraction to keep your mind off the war






Be careful! Some of the enemies may take to the skies where they may have an advantage over you






Travel via stagecoach between different realms but the chances are the goblins will attempt to sabotage your journey and destroy your ride. Do whatever it takes to get them off your back and reach your destination safely!



Animated GIFS

As there's no trailer right now here are a few quick animated GIFs to give you a brief idea of what to expect. Please note these only show off a tiny amount of what's in store in the full game



A single strike on an enemy with a rock.





A quad combo strike with single rock.
Extremely effective if you can pull one off!






An example of one of the many destructive weapons that can be used.
This demonstrates how powerful fire can be if used strategically






Beware the archers! They're tough and can take out your castle's flags from a distance



Additional Info

Goblin Raiders is currently nearing the final stages of development and we're hoping for a Summer/Autumn 2017 release.

The game will be free to download but may show ads in-between levels. These can be stripped out with a small in-app purchase.

Another GIF added. This time it's the archer who will fire arrows at your flags and take them out from a distance. These enemies are among the stronger ones and quickly need dealing with before they cause any damage.

Beware the goblin bezerkers! These vile beings wear a skull on their heads and can often be seen chattering to themselves. They will let out a horrific scream before charging up your castle walls at tremendous speeds. Kill them quickly before they cause any damage!
