Shoot waves of hoards of people storming your castle and air balloons shooting arrows at you.
The goal of the game is to withstand a 10-minute assault.
You earn money by killing enemies.
If you do not last the full 10 minutes you can buy upgrades which allow you to shoot with greater force and your castle to withstand more damage while remaining operational.

Hold Position 2 Game Play Instructions
How to Play
Kill off the angry hoards attempting to siege the castle. Use experience from the game to purchase upgrades that strengthen your attack and the castle defense until you can last 10 minutes.
Starting the Game
Click on the green arrow to begin the game.
If you want to start from scratch after previously playing click on the red reset button in the upper right corner.
Shoot the Hoards With Arrows
Your castle will automatically shoot arrows at oncoming enemies, but you control the player atop the castle.
Aim your mouse in the direction you want to shoot and repeatedly click to fire arrows at them.
On the right side of the screen there is a green arrows button you can click on to have a sea of arrows fall from the sky. Once you use it you have to wait another 30 seconds to use it again.
As you kill enemies you earn money that can be spent making your arrow strength and castle defenses stronger.
Enemies which initially come slowly into the screen come faster as time ticks down.
The goal of the game is to last 10 minutes.
If you do not last 10 minutes you can use your money earned to buy upgrades. In general, off the start it is better to increase your shooting strength before investing heavily in castle defenses because being marginally stronger with your shot can kill enemies just coming into the screen before they can harm your castle, which in turn allows you to earn more money faster.
I started off upgraded my own arrow strength a couple times, then the castle a couple times, then went back and forth on those two many times before upgrading the defense of the castle.
A stronger castle means you can last longer, but you are also killing enemies slower and your first few dozen plays through are going to be focused on earning more to power up anyhow.
A cheeseball strategy is to invest only in tower damage upgrade then let the game play in the background for a few dozen plays in order to build up points and the initial strength of the castle.
Each aspect of the game is upgraded separately. Tower attack strength, your attack strength and castle defense health.
Upgrades start off as costing 200 kills each.
Initial values and upgrades are shown in the table below.

This game is part of the Hold Position series. We also offer Hold Position and Hold Position 3. The game mechanics between the first and second titles in the series are quite similar, while the game mechanics are quite a bit different for the third game in the series.
Fighting: In the first two games you can control the center character who participates in the fighting. In the third game you simply continually upgrade the castle which does all the fighting automatically.
Upgrades: In the first two games you purchase upgrades after dying off, while in the third game you purchase upgrades in the middle of the game using gold and can purchase further upgrades with diamonds after dying.
Sustained Upgrades: The diamond-based upgrades last from game to game in the third edition of this series while the gold-coin purchased upgrades reset to zero. In the first two games all upgrades are sustained from round to round unless you reset the game data or play in a different web browser lacking your saved gameplay data.
Goal: In the first two games the goal is to last through a 10-minute siege. In the third game the goal is to last through as many waves of attacks as you can. There is no specific end to the third game and the enemies keep getting strong each round until you lose.
