Shoot waves of hoards of people storming your castle.
Your castle automatically shoots at enemies, but you have to upgrade the offensive and defensive attributes throughout the battle.
You earn money by killing enemies. The ability to earn money is yet another thing you can upgrade.
Gold coins can be used to buy in-game upgrades, and diamonds can be used to buy upgrades after the game has ended. Diamond upgrades carry across from game to game while gold upgrades do not.

Hold Position 3 Game Play Instructions
Your castle automatically tries to defend itself.
You do not control the shots or defense, but instead upgrade your castle’s attributes.
The castle can be upgraded during battle with gold, and after you have died with diamonds.
Each of the upgrade categories are listed below.
Damage – how hard you hit
Attack Speed – how quickly you shoot
Critical Chance – the odds of an attack being critical / heavy
Critical Multiple – how much harder critical hit attacks are than ordinary attacks
Range – how far you shoot
Health – the number of hit points your castle has
Regeneration – how quickly the castle health restores during and after battle
Vampire – scares some opponents, making them less aggressive
Gold Bonus – how much extra gold do you get when you defeat an enemy
Diamond Bonus – how much extra diamond do you get when you earn diamonds
Boss Bonus – extra earning power for defeating bosses
Random Gold – gold which you obtain randomly throughout the game
Upgrades start off cheap and then get progressively more expensive as you keep upgrading the same attribute.
Early in the game it can make sense to upgrade gold bonus and random gold so you are making more gold which can then be used to buy other upgrades.
After doing a couple rounds of each of those I then upgrade attack strength and attack range.
Then I like to do a few attack speed, castle health, and castle regeneration.
Throughout the game you typically have one of the upgrade windows open at all times and keep spending to make your castle stronger as the game progresses.
Unlike prior games in this series this game does not have an end. You play until you die out as the enemies get more difficult in each subsequent wave. The current wave number is shown at the top center of the screen.
Your game progress is stored in your local web browser, so you can continue later where you left off.
You start the game at the beginning in terms of the gold upgrades not carrying over, but the diamond upgrades do last from game to game.
This game is part of the Hold Position series. We also offer Hold Position and Hold Position 2. 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.
