Fans of the classic Atari arcade game Warlords will be pleased to learn that Bryan Edewaard has developed a version for the Atari 5200 titled Castle Crisis. In this fast-paced game, up to four players can compete against one another or computer opponents. Using your shield, you must capture and launch fireballs against an enemy's castle, while protecting your own castle from enemy fireball hits. Gameplay mechanics and graphics mirror the arcade, with additional gameplay options available, adding variety to an already great game. This is simply one of the best arcade ports available for the 5200.

Castle Crisis features a professionally printed box, label and manual. The Castle Crisis artwork created by Manu PƤrssinen was a result of the Castle Crisis Label Contest held on AtariAge.

Castle Crisis supports up to four players on a four-port 5200 system, and even supports 5200 paddle controllers if you have them, for a more authentic arcade experience. If you're a fan of the arcade Warlords, or of the popular 2600 version, you owe it to yourself to buy Castle Crisis! If you don't have an Atari 5200, a version is also available for Atari 8-bit computers.

This is a great port of the classic Warlords arcade game! And it's one of the few 5200 games that can use all 4 joystick ports of the original 5200 console. (Admittedly few people will have 4 working 5200 controllers, but it's nice to think that such a game could happen in theory!)

I can't believe I never added a review, because I've owned this for years. It's the best version of Warlords you could hope for on 5200. graphics, sounds, gameplay all superbly well done.

First of all I have been playing video games since the late 70's so when I heard there were homebrew cartridges for the 5200 I was delighted. This is my second cartridge bought on this site and I have to say it is well done. I always was a fan of Warlords on the 2600 and this is a great translation with better graphics and gameplay.Easy to understand instructiions and great box art makes this a very appealing game. The AI is very good in this one so don't miss out on a classic.
