When it comes to ruling a kingdom, you can sway people with kind words and generous deeds, or you can flatten them with a massive trebuchet. Just tap to launch your projectile of choice and aim for glory... or in this case, shattering intricately balanced castles and flattening their armies and royalty. With over 100 levels (plus a level editor), skins to unlock, ranks to attain, and ammo ranging from the humble bolder to the devastating black hole, Crush the Castle is tons of medieval castle crushing fun.
Just downloaded this game looking for something fun to play on long drives. I remember playing this game on the computer as a kid so my hopes were high. Just starting out I was disappointed. The game doesnt allow you to zoom out to see the entire field. Leaving you firing blind. I don’t remember if that was the same for the computer but with all games (angry birds as example) you are able to zoom out and aim. Not being able to and wanting to have a good score leaves my constantly restarting. That is my second issue, the restart button. For being one of the main options it is way to small. It may seem like I’m nitpicking, but I would expect more from a game that cost money compared to a game like siege master that is free and doesn’t have these issues.
Great!! by Monstersquad#1
Love this game, the humor in there voices when you crash a castle. Love it
No updates by SSGMacAttack
No updates..... why waste the time
Awesome by Parrish24
Love this game! Addictive and puzzling at times. The only thing keeping me from giving it five stars is it needs more levels and types of ammo. Come on updates! 🙂
Does not support iPhoneX by Wobbly Taco
Does not support iPhoneX after stating it does.
No refund available.
No mute by ni-sho
Love the game. I’ve loved it since it was a free miniclip game back probably almost 10 years ago, but there’s no mute option on the music or sound effects, and that reaaaally kills it for me
This is torture. by Cabe999
A lot more challenging than the browser version and a lot more satisfying. It ain't bad.
iPhone upgrade ooops by jglotfe1
With upgrade my app no longer works except on unit I will not upgrade.
I found your new game now I have to start over again and apparently LOST my prior purchase to upgrade this prior app. One problem is only I paid for extra games then block from using it.
Good, Could be great. by OneMadArseGuardian
I think adding some more levels and modes would be great. The game as-is is completely WORTH IT. But as a customer obviously I want more and its super fun. Hopefully this game has a future.
Buyer beware! by StevoDude11
This game used to be great but it is now so glitchy that it locks up your phone. Do not download.
No mute function by Nostaljia
Seriously? How is there not an option to turn off the music and/or sound? It’s ridiculous and made it so I don’t even bother playing the game.
Better than Angry Birds by Gman24248
I like this game a lot but I think there’s not enough levels, there is only three lands to play in and I finished the entire game in less than one week...make more levels pls.
Fun for a few days by Robbie H III
CtC was what Angry Birds copied, but it doesn't mean this is a great game. You'll have fun for the first few days, but only the first two major worlds are playable. The very last one is quite literally impossible. Don't download this looking to 100% it. You will not.
Good for the price by Lordfattiddies
Great game! Way better than Angry Birds. You actually get a good value here, and there’s no In App purchases.
ITS BACK?!? by boe_dye
WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN??????? I had no idea this updated until now!!
This is THE game that inspired Angry Birds! Before iOS gaming was around, Kongregate and New Grounds where the places to play all the best Flash Based Indie Games. Fun and simple games that were challenging, but didn’t require you to devote your life to in order to enjoy them!
Super excited to have CtC on my 8 Plus!!
Not that great of a port. by Ygkggff
The look has transferred over from the browser version, but that’s it. The mechanics don’t work as well and the projectiles don’t work as good as before(minus the boulders). The vortex bottle doesn’t have hardly any lift. You’re lucky if it flings a small piece of wood or a person, all other objects remain stationary for the most part. The trebuchet doesn’t work as good either. Not only does the backswing not work, but the forward swing has no accuracy. This game needs serious work before any extra features are made.
Can’t Mute?? by Boydler
I can’t believe there isn’t an option to turn off sound. Makes the game unplayable for me.
Actually by Game i gruesos
Angry birds is a rip of this game
NO MUTE BUTTON by drtwinmom
Makes this otherwise great game a pain in the nether regions.
Great game by willmakeupay
This is one of the original games I downloaded when I first got my iPhone. Years ago. They have updated it and it is still a great game to play. My kids love it too!
Sort of fun? by Gahahakakakakmandnd
It's just not worth it. The game has numerous features that bother me
It’s been a long time by Tyler death killer
I’m glad to see this still being a top chart game i played this about 6 years ago on my iPod 2 and i can tell that the developers changed a lot sense the last time I played it is really nice to see one of my childhood favorite games hasn’t died yet
Nostalgia sort of by Ghosh districts
Played this game a lot as a younger me and got reminded of it when I was told angry birds is a rip off of crush the castle the memories of playing this game came right back to me
Lit by pantera08
This game is dopeeeee. You should add more levels though. I’m a returning customer since the beginning, but I downloaded the game again yesterday and I just now beat. It’s definitely challenging though.
:( by GTIMM
This game is unplayable. It really sticks. I can’t believe I downloaded it.
Awsome390 by #NeedMoStars
I played this when I was young and now that it is improved its even better👍🏻
Crap by Tarptuns
I paid a dollar for a horrible rip off of angry birds?!?? Want my money back!
Love it by Tanner E. Lampitt
I remember playing this when I was younger, our teachers used to yell at us all the time, can’t believe this found its way onto IOS. Would love for it to have more levels and a new continent!!
Still fun, but the challenges still need work. by Keovar
For "Playing Fair", one must use only weapons unlocked in the area you're crushing. Trouble is, these challenges came out long after I finished the game, so I don't recall which weapons came from where. Please, highlight the projectiles which are valid for the "Playing Fair" in each stage. If not that, at least give us a list. Thanks.
Weird by Madmen mm
Ok for some reason I just thought about the first game I played which was this game so I went to see if they still have it which it is here and after 5 years, they just now came out with a new update!?! This is some demented crap I have no clue why I just thought about it and you guys update it
How do you change weapons in builder? by eggimage
I don't see any way to change the weapon set in the builder mode. I've defeated all levels with a gold medal and unlocked all but one ranks
And the builder mode's buttons are too small, so is the "reset" button at lower left, it's extremely hard to press it.
Also, the second background choice in builder is not properly done. Might wanna fix it
When testing the built stage, "Ranks" button does not work.
If you manage to eliminate every object in builder mode, the whole screen gets greyed out
Fun action, hilarious sounds by M A 4
The campy sounds and graphics have a real sense of humor, the firing mechanic is fun, there are lots of levels to unlock, and eventually you earn cool stuff like explosive bombs and homing crow swarms. My only critiques: a mix of really easy and really hard levels. Not a big deal though.
Since this has to be compared to Angry Birds (which I also love): the two-tap trebuchet firing mechanic is more fun to me than the AB slingshot, giving this game a very distinct feel. Also, this game came first! As far as I can tell it's the first of the "Angry Birds" genre.
Great to see new updates and new content added to such a classic.
Updated Review: Characters Were Too Small by Hendo2
The latest update fixed a problem where game objects and characters were too small. Back to being one of the greatest games in the App Store!
PLEASE developers!!! by SpankyMcFister
I'd pay $10 (or more), for a new continent. Or an entirely new game, like a CtC 2 for IOS.
Come on and think about it.
Also, please feel free to add a little comedy too, some more Easter eggs perhaps. Maybe mimes or livestock could be an artilliray? I dont know.
I'm just so hungry for more of this game. The recent upgrade was ok, but it really only reignited my hunger for MUCH MORE!!!!
New achievements don't save without Game Center by cfedey
I previously reviewed the game indicating that achievements don't save after you close the app. Turns out this was because I wasn't logged into Game Center. So if you're noticing that your achievements get cleared out every time you launch the game, try logging in to Game Center first. You should get a popup when you launch the game showing that Game Center has been activated, and another popup when you earn an achievement.
Love it by Hajila
I have cleared and replayed this game I don't know how many times now. It's a simple but very fun and gratifying game. No online nonsense with more purchases or Facebook connections. Just a simple clean and fun game.
New update fail I phone 7 by Lilripstas
The new update seemed great. Easier to see and new features. However the information does not stay saved in the ranking system. So all your progress goes away each time you open it. Frustrating.
The game itself is fun!
Nostalgia by Dagr5
Just remembered this childhood game so I thought I'd see if it was on the App Store. Does not disappoint my memories.
Also, I'm surprised I remembered this game just 2 days after it got updated for the first time in 6 year
Update for developers: there is a bug that makes the progress I've done for the rank system reset every time I close off the app
Too hard to progress by Themax1023
You shouldn't be limited to a certain number of shots makes me not want to play not the game I remember 😔
Crushes expectations! by FerretyFerret
And also lots of castles.
Punishes older players by User2628505616
The new rank system requires the player to throw a single small rock at a solid metal structure. As the player progresses, less effective weapons (single small rock, etc) are replaced by others. This makes the achievement impossible.
It's been years by Jeremy0202
Do you think you guys could update it. It would bring back my childhood. I know it would be hard but it's worth a shot
Primary school memories brought back to life! by Joee Christie
This was the best game when I was in primary school. I remember breaking into the computer lab just to play this game after hacking the computer system so that it would take away the blocking mechanism to the website and just playing this game for hours, while skipping class. It had the best graphics back then for the time we came out and the graphics today or even better if not the same it's still an amazing game I will play this game over and over because the quality fun you have from playing Angry Birds you get to experience in this mid evil version of Angry Birds not to mention Angry Birds was based off of this game just saying people
Boring by Jforeha3253
So very boring. Graphics are primitive. Angry birds is free.
Need more levels by Tummy brook
Fun but short. Please add new levels.
I paid for a demo by Medieval warrior
The game was fun, but before I knew it the game was completed. Very disappointed. I thought there would be more to this game. I feel like I paid for a demo. Not a full game😠. Please could you add more to this game? It needs more challenges. I completed the game in less than a day. Most of the games I own take more time than this to finish. Please fix! Thank you.
This game is still in progress by Reefamadness
Cool game, but it gives you no option to zoom out to see where you're shooting. It would help if you could see the path of your projectile, like real life, instead of mindlessly watching it fly through the sky. Other than that it's a pretty cool game, but the developers still have a little bit of work cut out for them if they want 5 stars.
Nostalgia by Gadgets222
Why don't they update this game? It was just abandon all of a sudden sadly. This will probably be the last review ever on this OG iPhone game.
👌🏼Love It, BUT... by viccky =]
But, I already finished 3 continents all with gold medal except 1 bloody level 😕😑😠 Also need mooore continents!!
