Catapult King 

 

Catapult King reminds me of old launcher games. Players are given a catapult and things to destroy. Yes the majority of Catapult King is tearing things down. This dragon kidnaps a princess because, well that is what dragons do. We have to rescue her. In our way is numerous knights standing on odd looking platforms.

Are you acquainted with the Boom Blox series? Catapult King is similar in some ways. We are launching balls at block structures. Catapult King is not in 3D in terms of us being able to rotate around the battle field. But it does have a similar feel. At least it does to me. Catapult King allows players to magically enchant their catapults with a variety of powers.

The cute graphics in Catapult King brought a smile to my face. I felt bad when the dragon would fry the knights or when they would fall from large heights. This is where Catapult King earns that 9+ rating. Families will want to pay close attention to the age rating in this hand held iOS video game. The details in Catapult King are decent.

The music in Catapult King fits the graphics to a tee. I enjoyed listening to this iPhone/iPod Touch game. There are plenty of levels in Catapult King to play. Plus players are graded on multiple aspects. Earning all of the jewels for the crown can take some doing in certain levels. Which is one of the main replay facets of Catapult King.

Certain power ups in Catapult King show the player where the ball will go. At times this was not helpful. But with some trial and error I was usually able to solve levels. I felt bad about hurting those knights. They have little rude animations where they mock the player so I can see where some would enjoy taking them out.

The biggest lesson families can learn from Catapult King is demolition. Although in our current age we use explosives and not catapults. So Catapult King may not have any real world applications. Unless you are in the habit of using a catapult. I found Catapult King to be a cute little game based on catapult launching. Some people may compare Catapult King to Angry Birds but this is drastically different.
