After wiping out small villages and kingdoms from your iPhone and iPad, you can finally go Medieval on your Mac. Brisk Mobile is bringing its tower defense game to the desktop via the Mac App Store.

Medieval mixes elements of a role-playing game with the action of a tower defense offering. Players spend gold on upgrading their weaponry and fixing their castle as they are bombarded by a seemingly endless barrage of knights and knaves on horseback and more "high-tech" weaponry such as catapults. Then when the battle lines are drawn, you fight back against the impending horde by launching a wave of arrows (flaming arrows sold separately) as they storm the castle. The enemy even employs attack from the air and brutish big bosses to bring the battle into overtime.

Medieval on the Mac promises four game modes, ranging from Easy to Hard and including Fast Fire gameplay. Players have eight unique weapons, six troop types, and three shooting modes at their disposal. Battles take place over 11 locations.

The game has proven to be a hit on the iOS Ap Store. Brisk Mobile says Medieval has racked up 1.5 million downloads in its assorted iPhone and iPad formats.

The Mac version of Medieval costs $3 at the Mac App Store. It runs on Mac OS X 10.6 or later.
