When it comes to ruling a kingdom, you can sway people with kind words and generous deeds, or you can flatten them with a massive trebuchet. Just tap to launch your projectile of choice and aim for glory... or in this case, shattering intricately balanced castles and flattening their armies and royalty. With over 100 levels (plus a level editor), skins to unlock, ranks to attain, and ammo ranging from the humble bolder to the devastating black hole, Crush the Castle is tons of medieval castle crushing fun.

Let the Crushing Begin!

Me Lazy Gamer ,

It’s a decent port (sorry for paragraphs)

If you’re like me, who played the flash version of this game years ago, possible in school? Maybe at work for others. This was one of my favorite flash games and when I saw that there was a mobile port of it I knew I wanted it eventually, and so I got it. It is quite fun, some challenging levels but not many.

My only real problem with the game is that it doesn’t contain the original levels (maybe a few are from the original game, but the artwork remains the same which is nice) and I feel the weapons you can use have been tweaked or just don’t feel as powerful as the flash version of the game.

In the original game, I liked that every new region you’d be introduced by some weapon smith giving you a new item to use, which is absent in this game. You do get new items, not in the same order as the original version.

All in all, it’s decent, it contains the original Artwork, while giving some newer graphical changes, such as to the items you use against castles.

I however wish there was more levels, I went for gold as I went along as when I finished all levels I had nothing further to do, and the “Editor” is very weird to use, at least for me. It’s hard to even things out.

Needs improvement

Just downloaded this game looking for something fun to play on long drives. I remember playing this game on the computer as a kid so my hopes were high. Just starting out I was disappointed. The game doesnt allow you to zoom out to see the entire field. Leaving you firing blind. I don’t remember if that was the same for the computer but with all games (angry birds as example) you are able to zoom out and aim. Not being able to and wanting to have a good score leaves my constantly restarting. That is my second issue, the restart button. For being one of the main options it is way to small. It may seem like I’m nitpicking, but I would expect more from a game that cost money compared to a game like siege master that is free and doesn’t have these issues.

Fun action, hilarious sounds

The campy sounds and graphics have a real sense of humor, the firing mechanic is fun, there are lots of levels to unlock, and eventually you earn cool stuff like explosive bombs and homing crow swarms. My only critiques: a mix of really easy and really hard levels. Not a big deal though.

Since this has to be compared to Angry Birds (which I also love): the two-tap trebuchet firing mechanic is more fun to me than the AB slingshot, giving this game a very distinct feel. Also, this game came first! As far as I can tell it's the first of the "Angry Birds" genre.

Great to see new updates and new content added to such a classic.
