How to Play
Shoot the helicopters and tanks to earn money which can be spent to make your base stronger.
Starting the Game
Click on continue to begin where you left off or new game to start from scratch.
Shoot the Helicopters & Tanks
As helicopters dropping bombs and tanks fall into the game shoot at them.
Use your mouse cursor to point and then click repeatedly to rapidly fire.
As you destroy helicopters and tanks you earn money that can be spent making your firepower and base defenses stronger.
You control the bunker gun while the ground turrets and air turrets aim automatically.
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 firepower before investing heavily in defenses because being marginally stronger with your shot can kill enemies just coming into the screen before they get a shot off, which in turn allows you to earn more money faster.
The ground turrets are quite weak off the start so it can make sense to upgrade their damage at least once or twice.
If you plan on actively playing the game it can make sense to increase the damage of the bunker gun as well.
If you wanted to let the game run in the background to power up for a few rounds then it would make sense to power up the air turrets along with the ground turrets since they fire automatically and you gain experience when they destroy an enemy.
Each aspect of the game is upgraded separately.
Upgrades start off as costing $500 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 2 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.
