iPhone's "Crush the Castle"

This is the Mac version from the iPhone.

This one is actually better, because on the iPhone I was always accidentaly touching the screen and firing when I wasn't ready. This is a pretty good game of using the trebuchet to knock down various fortresses and castles. The neat thing here though is that we now have two different methods of shooting; mouse click to fire and click again to release, or use the mouse to draw a line towards your target which is more precise.

The people still yell when they get hit and the blood still splatters, but it's not too gruesome. The layout is a little different but the graphics are better.

The only downside to this game is that it has a preset screen size that won't let me go full screen. Other than that, it's a pretty fun way to kill a few minutes or get some coffee and campaign for a couple of hours.


If you're looking for "Crush the Castle", this is not it, but close. "Castle Clout" is not bad, but lacks interesting projectiles, and the physics aren't quite right. But my real complaint is, the app responds erratically to mouse/trackpad clicks, causing mislaunches, or no launches at all. A few tweaks by the developers should get it fixed in a future update. Still, it's big crushing fun!
