"platform to shoot over walls and cross over water"

The Platform is a Pad obtainable at Age 7.


  • The platform can be obtained at age 7, as an alternative to the Turret, Castle Wall (if you got Stone Wall at age 3), and Healing Pad.
  • One Platform costs 20 wood.
  • The limit of Platforms placed at one time is 12.
  • The Platform allows the player to shoot over most Structures when stood on.
    • Despite giving the player a height advantage great enough to shoot over walls, it is apparently not tall enough to allow the player to shoot over Trees, Food Bushes, Cacti, Turrets or Windmills, indicating that walls are shorter than said structures.
  • Platforms can be placed on the River. When stood on, the player does not go with the current of the river.
  • The Platform has 300 Health.
  • You can't shoot over stuff when you are using it on the river.


  • Place these down at in your base so you can shoot over walls. Or, you can place them next to an enemy base so you can shoot into their base if they are trying to hide in their base.
  • Use it to your advantage when you are fighting a hostile mob, such as Bully, Bull, or Wolf. While they are trying to get you, stand on the other edge and use a Bow to shoot it or hit it with a melee weapon. If it tries to round it and get you on the other side, get to the opposite side and repeat until you have killed it.
  • To battle the river's current without spending any gold, place platforms across the river and the current won't affect you as long as you are on the platforms.


  • The Platform was the first structure to introduce height mechanics to the 2D game.
  • If you stand on the platform, your weapon would appear over a mine while if you're not it appears to be below a mine.


Platforms were added in version 0.77, allowing players to shoot over certain obstacles. When the river was added in version 0.79, players would be pulled into the river's current unless he was standing on a platform. 0.79 also reduced the Platform's health to 400 and its cost to the modern amount while increasing the limit on platforms. Since then the Platform has remained unchanged.
