Build Castles And Knock 'Em Down

“Building castles and then knocking them down was fun as a kid, and it’s still fun now," says Neil Sorens, Zen Studios' creative director. He's talking about the Pinball FX developer's latest downloadable game, CastleStorm, which looks like a hybrid of tower defense, real-time strategy, and Angry Birds.

Players choose between viking and knight factions, and then build their castle while defending against and attacking their foes. Catapults fire a variety of projectiles, including arrows and spiked balls, which are needed to battle approaching foes and batter down rival castles. Check out the trailer below to see it in action.

CastleStorm is "coming soon to a digital store near you," according to the trailer. If past Zen games are any indication, you can safely assume that means XBLA, PSN, and PC.
