Crush the Castle 1.2: iPhone Destruction Fit for a King

Powerful New Weapons and Level Editor Round Out a Massive Update

NEW YORK - January 19, 2010 - Armor Games is proud to announce a kingdom-sized update for their medieval rock-slinger, Crush the Castle. The puzzle-action game challenges players to rain down destruction on increasingly fortified castles. Armed with a trebuchet– a specialized and highly accurate style of catapult– players hurl projectiles over and through castle walls to crush both the castle and its royal denizens. This iPhone classic is the heir to the realm of its father, the wildly successful flash-based Crush The Castle.

Crush the Castle 1.2 adds 40 new levels to the already-robust 50, and launches an even easier-to-use level editor. Armor Games have doubled the weapon set, adding wicked new bombs and potions to the player’s arsenal, letting players dabble in alchemy or just fling a trio of big rocks to send the walls crashing down. Thanks to realistic physics and the wonders of simulated gravity, a perfect shot can crush a castle in one fell swoop and net the player a coveted gold medal. Players can look forward to a fantastic reward if they earn a gold medal in all 90 levels.

Crush the Castle 1.2’s challenge comes from mastering the trebuchet’s precise timing– wreck the opposing fortress in one glorious, arcing lob of demolition. Tap anywhere to set it in motion, and tap again to release the payload. The controls are both simple to learn and highly responsive, creating massive pick-up-and-play appeal for gamers of all ages.

• A whole new continent featuring 40 additional levels, totaling a princely 90!

• Three regal new weapons, including:

• Delayed Fuse Bomb– aim for a gap in the walls, and crush the castle from within!

• Fire Potion– burn any and all wooden objects in this vicious potion’s path!

• Acid Potion– dissolves all types of blocks in the area.

• Enhanced level-editor– Forge magnificent bastions for unlimited crushing action!

• Enjoy a smoother, crisper crushing experience with a cavalcade of performance upgrades and bug fixes!

Furthermore, between January 18-22, 50% of the proceeds of all sales of Crush The Castle will go to supporting the American Red Cross' relief efforts in Haiti. For more information, please visit AppsForHaiti.
