Catapult King iOS Game Review
Rescue the princess in Catapult King
The fire breathing dragon and his mean knights have captured the beautiful princess, only the brave and fearless can save her. It is your duty to defeat those that stand in your way and free the princess. Destroy castles and forts with your catapulting skills in a wonderful, magical 3D world.
Catapult King is an Angry Bird styled game. With the 3D catapult in front of you, you aim and fire your shot at the soldiers and fort. To launch just pull back and if you need to tilt it slightly use the cog at the side to turn. If you need to explore you can do that too by swiping the top of the screen and when you are ready to play again just tap anywhere.
Like with the different birds in Angry Birds, there are lots of shots to use that do different amounts of damages. A heavy shot for example will smash through blocks, while a bomb shot will explode after you fire. There are also shots like splitter shot which, you guessed it, splits after firing it. You have lots to choose from and all that are to be used at the right time when it is needed. I really liked the Lunar and Earth shots, they caused lots of damage and the effect they make looks great too!
To score more points and diamonds you need to defeat and destroy your enemy with as few shots as possible. If you do it with one shot you earn three diamonds but with three shots only one diamond. You also earn more for defeating the soldiers in a short time. So there are lots of way to earn plenty of diamonds.
Catapult King is a great twist to the fling and destroy puzzle games. Its 3D world offers a great unique feel to it and the way you can change your angle and force of the shot is great. There are also magic potions to earn along the way to help you to achieve your goal and you can also buy these in-app. To move on to the next level you just have to destroy the soldiers on the castle that are stopping you get to your princess.
With 64 levels to work your way through and Game Center integration there is plenty to keep you playing for a while. I loved the graphics it has great colours and fun animation, the changing backgrounds look good too. The characters even make some great noises through out the game.
Catapult King is like the many physics puzzler games available but it offers something a little different with its great animated 3D world. One that is very enjoyable and fun to play.
