Ye Siege Master! Thy King requires your assistance! Dispense with our enemies, let none survive, main and butcher then all!!! And Crush their Castle!

I apologize for the overzealous use of exclamation points, by my word what an amazing find.
Crush the Castle is pure unadulterated win. Produced in-house by Armor Games, this is one that you really do not want to pass up. Developed back in 2009 as a remake of a game called Castle Clout, Crush the Castle is everything you want in a flash game, and so much more.

The game play is precisely as it sounds. Your job as siege master is to use your Trebucet, and various types of projectiles, be they bundles of stone or explosive payloads, to destroy castles.

The game is broken up into levels where you have a limited number of shots in which you must kill all people... while laughing at their comical death sounds.

Speaking of sounds, this game really does fall well here. With a good sound base, and the ability to disable sounds at any point while playing, I don't see a way they could have been improved.

Now back to the game. Mechanics in this are well planned, and perfectly coded. You will feel like you are demolishing buildings in this flash title, while still being entertained. With 24 castles to crush, you would assume i would think much of this game past the 30 minute mark.


There is a MASSIVE online community around this game, so much so that they released a second updated version call the players pack with an expanded number of castles, and more diverse options.

While I am not one for level design, it is built directly into the game engine, and fully encouraged by armor games. This game has it's own dedicated forum found here.

The simplicity and surrealism of taking down fortified structures, medieval style, REALLY makes me want to go back and keep playing. I have to say, this is the most addictive game I have yet to review.

It takes the cake, and I can't stop talking positively about everything. The tutorial lasts about 8 seconds, and the game is so intuitive I don't even think they need it.

At any rate, stop reading and go play Crush the Castle NOW.
