The Windows Phone game Catapult King is an entertaining arcade game where you find yourself having to rescue a Princess from the evil grips of a fire-breathing dragon. Armed with a catapult, you must battle your way through the dragon's strongholds and crush his evil knights.
We liked Catapult King when we first reviewed the Windows Phone game and continue to find the game to be a fun time waster. Catapult King is normally priced at $.99 and through the myAppFree promotion, over the next twenty-four hours, you can pick up Catapult King free. It's a great opportunity to pick up a fun game and save a little along the way.
Catapult King has you lugging your trusty catapult across the lands to rescue your Princess from the clutches of a fire-breathing dragon. The Windows Phone game has over 100 levels to tackle, plenty of enhancements to unlock for your catapult and plenty of forts full of knights to demolish.
Gameplay for each level has you trying to demolish the enemy strongholds and any knights within. You have a limited number of shots for each level and game mechanics are fairly straightforward. Tap/hold on the boulder that sits in the catapult's sling and slide your finger down on the screen (essentially pulling back on the sling). An aiming arrow will appear between the catapult's arms to help you aim your shot and a wheel is present at the base of the catapult to adjust your elevation. The only thing missing is a trajectory line to assist you in aiming the catapult.
Release your hold on the screen to launch your catapult's boulder and when all the knights are crushed, the level is complete. Along the way you can enhance your catapult with magical shots to increase the damage it inflicts and gaming screens can be pinched to zoom into your targets.
All in all, Catapult King is a fun game for your Windows Phone with nice graphics and challenging gameplay. Regularly priced at $.99, you can pick up Catapult King for free through the myAppFree Deal. The game is also available for Windows PC through the deal, but unfortunately, gaming progress does not transfer between devices.
Please note that it may take a little time for this deal to go live in your market (or the myAppFree app) due to time zone differences. At the time of posting, the deal was reflective in the U.S. Market.
