Story

Introducing a new hero– or should that be villainess? The daughter of the Darklord!

Set fiendish traps for any adventurer foolish enough to cross you, and then send in your monstrous minions to finish the job!

Stop protecting the world as a goody-two-shoes king and start conquering it as a bad-to the-bone Darklord! Sure, there are legions of annoying adventurers determined to stop you, but as any self-respecting arch-villain would agree, swatting them is the best bit!

Features

• Dynamic defensive gameplay - players rush to fortify their tower before it falls!

• Darklord uses the setting and characters of the FINAL FANTASY CRYSTAL CHRONICLES series to add rich flavour to the relatively simple gameplay.

• An abundance of audio and visuals stir up an intense, almost comical level of excitement for players.

• Built around a basis of obtaining even more powerful Artifacts and Monsters in order to clear increasingly difficult stages.

• The world map opens as players progress through the stages with various side quests being important for maximum completion.
