Well the flash version of the game seemed pretty hard. You have to hold down for the power to go, then release. You have to destroy the castles with a given amount of stones and at the end of the level you get the choice of 3 upgrades: start with one more stone, more guards, or make the stone bouncier. While trying to destroy the castles, soldiers come out from the castles and attack your guards, trying to take over your catapult. While destroying the other castle, you must also defend against these soldiers or it's game over.

The flash version seems really fun. I would think that this game would have a lot of replayability since it's a flash game, but we'll see if anyone buys it

TOFTT anyone?

Seems decent, the flash game was fun, but the game seems a little short.

If the castles were randomly generated each play through, this would be an easy purchase.

Otherwise, as it is, I'll watch list it for now and hope for an update.

Web Designer & Developer since 1999.

Games I highly recommend: CozyQuest, Gemmed, Jabeh, Blue Defense, Blue Attack, geoDefense, Hospital Havoc

I've been playing it for a few days now.

I'm really enjoying it and it's one of the games I find myself having the urge to play.

If anyone has some iphone specific questions just ask.

Our review will be up tomorrow. $2.99 is pricey for this, IMO.

Hmm...should have gotten this game for inspiration when we were working on my wife's physics project. She had to build a catapult, lol.

Donut buy this game!
Nah, just kidding: I had to say it. Actually this looks like a slice of alright. I have been sitting on the fence for a while now. $1.99 is tempting, but if it drops to 99 cents I would call this a no brainer. Maybe I can wait a little longer.
