Defend your castle with rocks and oil as hordes of nasty goblins invade!

Squish 'em with rocks and burn 'em with oil, but they keep on coming! Defend your castle from the filthy goblin hordes by arming your defenders with bone-crushing stones and pots of burning oil.

'Goblins at the Gate' is a casual, fast-paced strategy game utilizing simple mouse-based controls and addicting gameplay. Compete for the highest score, earn achievements, and fight to the bitter end!

No two games will be identical: the frequency, number and position of attacking goblins is generated randomly each play. Will you aim for more rocks to pelt the goblins? Do you want those oil pots refilled faster? Perhaps you'd like to repair the damage caused by the ankle-biting menaces? Rack up that score and a choice of upgrades allows for different tactical choices.

Instructions and a video tutorial are available from the main menu.

Requirements: mouse, keyboard (optional), and an up-to-date web browser is all you need. An account with (direct or through a trusted provider such as Google, Facebook, Twitter, or Mozilla) is required to earn achievements; high scores may be submitted without an account. High scores and achievements are optional and may be turned off from the main menu.
