Stronghold is a castle building strategy game for Windows PCs.
If you're looking for some old school medieval strategy game fun, Stronghold might be right up your alley. It offers lots of challenges, as well as the exciting battles you expect in a game of its calibre.
The purpose behind Stronghold is twofold - build up your lands and defend them in battles. You gain lands through a mixture of smart in-game economics and by winning battles with other neighboring kingdoms. The spoils you get from winning wars can help you purchase supplies to expand your own castle and kingdom.
Other lords might want your land in Stronghold too though, so expect to have to defend your acquisitions in battle as well. Who among your people you choose to have fight, as well as what strategies you employ during the war, will determine the outcome of the battle.
Stronghold is fun to play if you have the patience for this type of game. Unfortunately, the game is a little buggy and freezes up sometimes. The graphics are also quite outdated compared to other available games.
Stronghold is a fun strategy game that lets players step into the shoes of a medieval lord.
