Interview with Mehmet Can Güler and Ata Türkoğlu – Game İstanbul (GIST)

Castle of Alchemist

In this game where you feel the action to the end, you are fighting against the invaders. You have an advanced super soldier in the game. You have to strategize with traps. The places where you set traps and barricades are of great importance. At the beginning of the game, you have a machine gun that you can fire. Among the traps are pointed irons protruding from the ground, spinning balls, and steam-powered machines. As ‘Castle of Alchemist’ progress, yen upgrades are unlocked. This game, which needs almost 1 GB of storage space, was developed by Team Machiavelli with the ‘Unity’ game engine.
