You Only Get One Castle

by MaxiPaille - 48 Hour Compo Entry

EDIT: Please note that the web version contains some bugs (like the generator) due to the export from Game Maker.

I removed some bugs from the export. You can now play with the web version as the windows version. :D

You Only Get One Castle is a game where you play the manager of a castle. In fact, there is a princess that defends it from monsters and she is very angry because she only have one. So she throw some objects from the castle to the monsters.

The goal of the game is to improve the powers of the princess to defeat the monsters and get the maximum score.

You only play with the mouse.

I know that the game is not realy balanced but the gameplay is here! :)
I had not the time to make the assets for the monsters, so i put red squares... :D sry

Developement Tool :
-Game Maker Studio
-Magix Music Maker Jam

Actually pretty fun. You could use some tutorial screen to explain the different items as it is not 100% clear (especially the right ones, like the bomb). When you double-click on the apple, the cursor is forever stuck to "apple" state.

Yeah, i know. I had not the time to do all i wanted to do.

Actually, when you double click on apple button, you buy 2 apple, but you can just place the last bought on the stock tiles.
I think i will improve the game in the future ^^

Thx for your comment ;)

Pretty entertaining, but didn't quite understand all the power-ups. Would like more feedback when something hits the tower (like cracks in the wall or the screen flashing red). I was surprised when I died.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
