We all have a deep-seated desire to smash things – a love of destruction, if you will. Don't bother denying it. Well, there are plenty of things to destroy in Catapult King, a game that made quite an impact on iOS. This is a physics game that invites you to knock down all manner of structures with a magical catapult.

You can think of Catapult King as a more advanced version of Crush the Castle. The gameplay is dead-simple. Just pull back the sling, aim, and release to watch the mayhem begin. You've beaten a stage when all the enemies in it have bitten the dust. Of course, regular chunks of rock won't always be enough to get the job done. That's where the magic comes in.

Catapult King is free, but offers plenty of in-app purchases (as is the tradition these days). You can buy magic points to trigger various special powers. The game awards some of these points at the end of each level, but not very many. On the plus side, Catapult King is a very attractive game with a cartoon-y vibe. Give it a shot. It can't hurt to look.

    not available in Slovakia... seriously, what the hell is the aim of geobanning countries?

  • Robert McKenzie

    Not available in the UK either .. I guess this game must be some American National Security training product or something .. perhaps it'll reveal their deep military secrets or something. Geobanning is for losers!

    • Robert McKenzie

      You're in a country that isn't privileged enough to enjoy the export of this high security game it seems.. don't worry I'm not in one either..

      Thanks, all I need to know. specifically whether IAP is the replacement for gameplay. What's more pointless than pay to 'win'

      except that you can play the game perfectly fine without making a single IAP. I've completed it without making one.

    Woah, seems to be a clone of Wreckateer: http://www.giantbomb.com/wreckateer/3030-37659/

    • PointZeroOne

      except I'm pretty sure this game came out on iOS well before Wreckateer was released
