Defend Your Crypt is a strategy and puzzle game, in which we will have to avoid to lose our treasure by the tomb thieves. We, as the Pharaoh, can use different traps to defeat those damn ambitious humans who are profaning your tomb.

Let them fall into the void, burn them, put an arrow through them, drown them, send your scorpions to kill them… Do everything you find necessary so you can end their lives.
  • Retro style: Like many of our games, Defend Your Crypt will have retro pixel art. In addition, we will lean toward Egyptian style.

  • Trap variety: The game will contain classic traps such as open platforms, which can make robbers fall onto spikes, and also water traps or killer scorpions and beetles.

  • Gore: In Ratalaika Games, we know you like blood, so we have included it. A lot of it. Killing the robbers won’t be enough. ”If it bleeds, we can kill it”, and we’re taking it to the limit. (If you don’t like blood, you can deactivate it :P)

  • Levels: A large number of levels to make sure the robbers will not steal any of your gold, and you enjoy the game to the fullest. A lot of time can be spent on finishing all of them!

  • Robbers with feelings: No robbers are heartless. Throughout the game, players will see robbers in different moods, and they will also interact with each other a little bit. Seeing a hallway full of blood could make a robber sad and break his heart.

Defend Your Crypt reviews and comments

The mechanics of the game is very simple, basically you have to activate traps to prevent the thieves from reaching your treasure. However, it is not as simple as the traps have time to recharge and thieves do not stop arriving in waves. The time management of the traps, the precision at the moment of activating them when they pass more than 1 enemy close are fundamental. Short and fun Game.

Fantastic. Great idea and implementation. The theme is simple, defend your treasure of grave robbers. For this you have several traps in certain positions already fixed. You Can unlock more traps as you get the looters ' skulls. It Seems simple and it is but do not get confused, it is not easy. There'S a constant pressure. Once used traps need to reload and looters go very fast, if you lose 4 seconds and you emptied/lost. Highly recommended

A frantic experience with high doses of blood, that will hook us to the last moment of our lives! A good number of levels to play and you have to be very attentive to not pass any thief, very careful with them that are veeeeery fast and harder than we think. Each level has its trick (to call it in some way) to be finished more easily and one that you do all levels then you will have the difficult way to continue enjoying this juegazo. You Oferecera A lot of fun time, definitely highly recommended:)

A bad weather or Sunday afternoon game! Your Task is to stop the Grave Robbers with Traps. These are blocked with Locks and can only be unlocked by Skulls you get when a Robber is eliminated. The Robbers approach in several Waves, each announced. Sounds simple, but it isn't. Technically, Pixel Graphics are offered here and the Orient is musically hinted at. Everything serves its Purpose! I Noticed the lateral Inscriptions Left and Right, probably the Game is older and dates back to when 4:3 Monitors were still modern. A positive Surprise is that the Blood can be turned off (as seen in the Videos). This makes it suitable for smaller Children as well. I paid 0.39EUR for it in the Sale and they are well spent.
