Brawl Stage of the Week: Another Castle

Candace Savino

The stage we picked this week is called "Another Castle," made by Wii Fanboy reader Logan C.

Oldschool Mario fans, take note of the stage's name -- it's a reference. But even if you don't find any princesses here, you can at least find a fun Brawl experience. Just read on past the break to download the castle and learn more about it.

Another Castle by Logan C.

This stage doesn't deviate too much from your normal castle set up, but it's more than just another castle. Included underneath are two spike pits, meaning you can take some damage if you're not careful. There are also ladders that give you access to the outer tier.

One thing we like about this stage is that it gives the player options. You can either play defensively on the bottom part of the castle, where it's more difficult to be launched out, or offensively at the top part, where the sky's the limit. Even so, it might be too enclosed for some of your tastes, but we think "Another Castle" offers a nice balance for both styles of play.

*Note: If anyone is still weary of spoilers, please note that there's an unlockable character in this gallery.
