Were you drawn in by the Castle of No Escape back in December 2019? You’re in luck as today we see the sequel arrive as Castle of No Escape 2 launches on Xbox One.
Available to purchase and download on Xbox One, Castle of No Escape 2 follows on from the original recent launch to once again take us behind the walls of the cursed castle. Just remember, once you are in, there is quite possibly no escape.
Priced at £8.39 with an initial discount allowing access for just £6.71, it has to be said that the move into sequel territory has seen a bit of a price increase over the original game, but still, anything under a tenner in our eyes allows for a bit of temptation and the same can be said here.
But what will you find within these castle walls? Well, Castle of No Escape 2 on Xbox One provides no less than 216 rooms of randomly generated goodness, delivering hazards, obstacles and enemies galore as you make the most of a clever battle system or even some old-school cheat action to battle your ways through these walls.
- Battle System: Every character is different, try them all! Perform the Agile attack when you’re in a pinch. Use armor and shields to your advantage and boost armor stats using the emblems.
- PAL/NTSC modes: If the game feels too unforgiving, you can tone down the difficulty, lowering the framerate to 50 (PAL). Note, though, that music and sounds become more evil at the 83% of their original pitch.
- Password System: Just like in an old NES game, in this game you need to input 13 characters to get back to your game session. Still, the powers of evil prevent you from saving anything much more than the artefacts you’ve found…
- Unfold the mystery: Defeat minibosses to unlock more playable characters.

Prepare yourself for the dangers of the cursed castle! Countless heroes have tried and failed to destroy the ancient spell that holds its walls. Meanwhile, hundreds of monsters are roaming inside, guarding the sword shards — the last known thing to be capable of defeating the demonic castle owner, thus shattering its magical structure. Although, you are not alone — some help could be obtained from the merchants, who, for reasons not truly understood, offer their services right inside the lair of evil. Though, it seems to be only a matter of time for them to disappear… Explore 6 x 6 x 6 = 216 rooms of randomly generated hazards and enemies while collecting the necessary artefacts. Plan your next step carefully, because save points aren’t a thing in a rogue-lite game! There is, however, another option, explained below.
