Hear Ye, Hear Ye!
By royal decree, the king has declared war on all the foreign nations in the realm. As his majesty’s most trusted siege master, it falls upon you to carry out his will with swift and ruthless efficiency. Bring the royal trebuchet to your nation’s enemy leaders and destroy their castles one by one. Leave not a single soul alive! The lords, ladies, royal guards and court jesters all must be crushed beneath your heel. Please be efficient while you do so. The king’s coffers are only so generous and he can only tax the peasants so much. Therefore, you have a limited number of shots at your disposal. Use your keen eye and experience for destruction to bring glory to the king’s name in the form of countless piles of rubble.
A New Kind if Siege Warfare
Your mission in Crush the Castle is simple. Use the king’s trebuchet to destroy every castle in the land and eliminate the enemy nobles. The good news is that the lords are poorly defended and will not be able to fight back against your onslaught. The bad news is that their castle walls are strong and their architectural designs are brilliant. It will take a clear head and impeccable aim to bring them all down.
- Complete each level by crushing every coward who’s skulking in the castle.
- Release the boulder from the trebuchet at the right time to determine its trajectory and distance.
- Hit weak points in the castle walls to send them tumbling down.
- Do not expend all of the shots you have at hand. Doing so will fail the level and forever mark you as a “royal failure.”
Bring the Right Ammo for the Job
Your trebuchet is so advanced, that it can launch more than just boring old rocks. As you destroy more and more castles, the king will give you access to better and more destructive ammunition. Use your judgment to determine what will penetrate the enemy walls and send your foes straight to Hades.
- Choose which kind of boulder you would like to fire on every turn.
- Launch boulders in three different sizes.
- Fire a single boulder at a time, or send three to the walls simultaneously!
- Shoot explosive bombs to cause even more destruction.
