Castle defense video games are as old as the internet. There’s something appealing about making a last stand against a horde of angry enemies, and castle defense mods can be found in all sorts of modern video games.
Using the Castle Defenders Mod for Minecraft, players can defend their fortress against waves of attackers. Players aren’t alone in their defense of the castle, either. There are a wide range of NPCs available to help, including archers, knights, mercenaries, and mages.
Enemy castles are scattered around the map, and they’re filled with dangerous enemies. If you want to capture an enemy castle, prepare to have lots of TNT and other weapons, since getting in and destroying the mob spawners could be difficult.
To raid an enemy castle, you’ll also want to create a few new friends to fight by your side. For that reason, the Castle Defenders Mod includes a number of recipes that help players create new allies.
An archer block will spawn archers to help you defend your castle, for example. Tier 1 archers are stationary and cannot move. They will attack any monsters that come within range and are great for placing in high places.
Players can also spawn knights, which move around and have a good amount of health. The mercenary, meanwhile, will fight for you only after receiving a gold ingot. Mercenaries can also be ordered around. Finally, mages are magic wielders that can set enemies on fire and make them explode. Every ally mob can be upgraded to Tier 2 by using diamonds instead of iron in the crafting process.
The real fun begins when you’re trying to defend your own castle and you spawn hundreds of zombies in the world around you. You can see what happens when you pit 100 archers against 100 zombies, for example, or do all sorts of other fun battles. You can recreate epic battles from Lord of the Rings or lead your own army of knights, mercenaries, and mages into war.
Whether you’re defending your own castle or raiding another castle, there are plenty of fun things to do with the Castle Defenders Mod. With chests to be found at the center of every enemy castle, players have a motivation to explore and discover the world around them.
