Is it any good?
At first glance Crush the Castle looks kind of cheesy and boring. But flinging cannonballs against flimsy 2D structures quickly becomes addictive. The trebuchets -- medieval catapults -- are quite realistic looking and challenging to master. Tap too soon and the ball overshoots the target, too late and it spikes. As you crush, the castles get harder to knock over. Ninety levels keep it more interesting than it probably deserves to be.
