Zen Studios, the minds behind the Zen Pinball and Pinball FX titles, have announced CastleStorm™ a medieval fusion of tower defense, real time strategy, and 2D destruction. Designed with colorful art-style and medieval world, CastleStorm aims to create a new genre crossover of 2D archery projectile warfare and 2D physics-based structure destruction. CastleStorm will provide a challenging mix of real time strategy, resource management, and a variety of different gameplay scenarios.
CastleStorm features medieval ballista weaponry, allowing players to launch an assortment of explosive weapons including Morningstars, Apple Grenades, Homing Eagles, and even flying sheep to defeat an onslaught of enemies trying to capture your flag and destroy your castle. Deploy a fearsome ground attack of swordsmen, knights, and donkey riders in order to protect your castle games, and if all else fails, call upon powerful spells to help keep the enemy at bay. In addition, CastleStorm features a tower construction editor that allows players to construct their own custom castles that will be used in battle. Castles must be constructed wisely, as choices determine which types of troops and resources will be available during battle!
Zen Studios will demo CastleStorm at the upcoming E3 conference in Los Angeles, CA. Be sure to visit their official website to see more of this game and get a glimpse at a trailer and several more screenshots.
