Defense Craft is a 16 bit, tile-based local-multiplayer game where one player defends their land, resisting attackers by building walls, and whacking and shoving away. While the other player tries to conquer it by knocking down walls and out-witting their opponent in this 2 player competitive action-strategy game.

NOTE: In the original version (playable on this page) the attacking player spawns to the right out of view. You'll need to move left before seeing your character.

Install instructions

Download the Defense Craft.exe and the Defense file to the same location. Extract the zip folder in the same directory and run the .exe file. A v1.1 version has been added to fix the camera scaling issues so the entire level is visible. The original version is playable with WebGL on the window above.

Linux and Mac versions have been provided with the v1.1 build, but have not been tested.
