Go Gold Castle by Lusolab Entertainment
I actually played this game about two years ago and it was a lot of fun! Go Gold Castle is 4 person party arena game that plays like a lighter, speedier Super Smash Bros. Your objective as the title suggests is to amass the highest amount of gold coins before the timer runs out. There’s another of different characters and environments to choose from, each with their own unique environmental hazard. I can’t really find out much online about the game launch and their social media seems to be inactive. But I guess we’ll be able to see them at Level Up KL.
