The first thing you’ll notice about Catapult King is undoubtedly the graphical quality, it’s amazing, and doesn’t suffer from any slow down or stability issues. The backgrounds are luscious and vibrant and also highly detailed and the stages are complex and inventive, it’s hard to believe that this is a free game, even harder to believe there is no advertising.
So… what’s the catch? There isn’t one! Gameplay is also amazing, the physics work as they should, the controls are simple. Just adjust the height of your catapult and pull back and release. Advancing through the game, the levels get more complex, towers are made of harder materials, enemies are placed in more difficult positions and you get new types of ammunition. Plus the occasional boss battle, in which you’ll need to attack the dragon directly.
For difficult levels, you have magic available to help get you through, earthquakes and meteor showers or an aiming aid, IAP’s are there for the impatient gamer, you can purchase magic instead of earning it or if you’re really impatient you can just unlock every level. You don’t need to spend your money however, everything you can buy, can also be earned, magic for example, accumulates from finishing levels.
Catapult King currently boasts 80 levels with more promised in future updates, so there’s a decent amount of content as well. Just finishing all the levels will provide some challenge but for the enthusiast you can revisit levels to gain all the collectibles as well, a significant challenge to say the least. This title works perfectly on both iPad and iPhone and it’s perfect for gaming on the go, 1 stage will last only a minute or two.
