Map Info:
Castle tower defense is a completely vanilla Minecraft tower defense map.  Defend your castle from 20 increasingly difficult waves of custom zombies. For every zombie that makes it to your castle you lose 1 life. You lose the game when your lives reach 0. The waves cycle through 4 unique zombie types: Basic, Speedy, Swarm, and Armored. Each zombie type has its own strengths and weaknesses, learn how to counter them. At the beginning of each wave you get gold.  You get more gold as the waves progress. 

You can spend gold on turrets, upgrades, bows, and arrows. You gain bonus gold the more zombies you kill. There are 3 types of turret: Arrow, Splash, and Frost.  Each turret has their own abilities, strengths, and weaknesses. Each turret can be upgraded to level 3. Each level greatly increases the turrets strength. 

Before you enter the game you will choose a difficulty. The difficulty affects how much gold you get per wave, how much gold you start with, and how many lives you start with.  If you manage to survive past wave 20 without losing all your lives, then you win the game. The game includes a reset feature for continued replaying/retrying.

-IMPORTANT NOTE FOR MULTIPLAYER-
Multiplayer might not work. This map was made with the intention of being multiplayer capable. However there is a bug with the structure spawners that spawn the turrets. The structure spawners lags servers to the point of crashing. It does not work with LAN either. It might work if you have an extremely powerful computer. Otherwise it probably won't work.  Sorry for the inconvenience. It might be fixed at a later time, but until further notice this map is not multiplayer friendly.

Version 1.1 Update:
- Difficulty now scales the amount of gold received per wave.
- Added game win feature back up. Just click the spawn wave button after wave 20 if the game win feature did not auto engage.
- Balanced the waves even more. Now it should be easier.

Made for Minecraft 1.7

Even with /time set day, I can't escape the DLM (Deathly Lag Monster)! I'm sorry, but I wasn't able to play or even select a difficulty because of him.

Sorry for that. I do have plans to make another tower defense map using 1.8 which will reduce lag tremendously. I might also update this map to remove the lag.

Why file name is Castle Tower Defence 1.6.2 ?
Why 1.6.2 ?

Because that was the minecraft version this map was made for, it is outdated, and will be updated for minecraft 1.8 soon.

+4 NateT_Bird Thank you all for over 65k downloads! I realize that I have made this map too difficult. I will be updating the map and making it less difficult. I don't think I will be updating any systems, just the difficulty.

I will most likely make another Tower Defense map in Minecraft v1.8. Using some features that were not around when I made this map, I can make the new map much better with less lag, more options, and more unique ways to play. I love the Tower Defense genre too much to have this be my only TD map. You can expect more TD maps from me in the future. Thanks again and have a wonderful day.

It is a great map!
But its not "cool" that you
can't go in gamemode 1!
I want to see the redstone. ;)
But it is a great map! AWESOMENESS

Thank you. You can go into gamemode 1, there are a few ways to do this. If you win the game, you will be sent to the major redstone and you will be given the option to set your gamemode to creative. Another way to do this is by opening your world to LAN and enabling cheats. Then change your gamemode to 1. I realize that this map is hard to beat. I will update it soon and make it easier.

Hey nate I try to download on ad.fly and it says ''Stay on this page, or leave'' I click stay and the page just goes white

I don't really know what the problem is. I have never had that happen to me. You could try temporarily turning off pop up blockers. That should help.

A truly amazing map, I was marveled by the entire redstone-circuit and command blocks. GJ to you :)
But as said in another comment, the Armored Zombies are nearly unkillable. Especially when the iron-armored come along.
I had 3 lv. 3 Arrow Turrets, a lv. 3 Frost turret, a lv. 3 Splash Turret and myself with an Epic Bow fire at one none stop and it didn't die so you might want to nerf it a bit. Other than that, this is one of the best game-maps I've ever seen :)

Thank you. I have considered nerfing the waves, but my problem is that for me, the armored mobs are too easy. To kill them you have to counter them. Build at least 3 level 3 splash turrets, and you are sure to win. I may end up nerfing them, I just need to think about it more. Thanks again.

Great map. But the armored zombies never got killed. Other than that nice map!

Thank you. You need to counter the zombies. Use splash turrets against the armored zombies. Use arrow turrets against speedy. Make sure you upgrade. A level 3 turret is much better than 3 level 1 turrets.

mine doesent start it says pick a difficulty when i pick a difficulty the button is gone

Please explain the bug in more detail. I have never had that bug before. What version of Minecraft are you playing in? It works fine for me every time I play. Try reinstalling the map, but make sure you do it in 1.7 or 1.6, not 1.8 snapshots. This is not a bug that I can fix. Sorry.

The yellow arrow turret: level 3 doesn't work

What do you mean doesn't work? I could be just a rendering glitch or you might have not had enough gold. Make sure you play in the right version of Minecraft. Either way it is not a bug that I can fix. I tested it and the yellow arrow turret level 3 works fine for me.

Make sure you stand close to the button. If you don't, then it might not give you your item.

The towers never spawned after buying and upgrading, all in all, it was just up to me and my bow to defend.


The towers probably spawned, but they did not render for you. Did you notice any arrows or potions coming from turrets that you bought? Were you using a 1.8 snapshot? That is a very strange bug. I don't think there is any way to fix it for this map. Sorry that it did not work correctly for you.

This is an amazing map. I love to play it. You should make many more maps.

(ps. you should really try to fix this so it can be played on lan, but other than that it is amazing)


Thank you. I am currently making more maps. I think that I might just start over and make a new tower defense map that is multiplayer friendly. It would take me lots of time to get this map to be balanced enough for multiple players. Thanks for the suggestion, it is high priority on my list of things to do.

Can you PLEASE tell me how you made the command block messages say "CastleTD" instead of [@]??? I really need to know, making a custom map right now. P.S this is a really cool map!


It is simple, just rename a command block with an anvil. Thanks for the feedback.
