It’s fun, when it works.
Either the rose tinted glasses were darker than i thought or they messed up some things in the port because its not as good as I remember. The upsides are the fun and quirky variety or throwables and how some are satisfying… but thats if they work right. For example, one mission required pinpoint precision with a firebomb to set the wood in the castle on fire to be a one shot, but it didn’t spread to everything for some reason making me do the difficult shot again and only on the third time did it spread properly. Another was where i had to launch a block at a castle using a well placed bomb, but the block hit the ground like it was magnetic and lost all momentum making me do the hard shot again. All this precise work with a funky trebuchet just to have your amazing shot be worthless really killed the fun of some creative levels. Its a bit of old school fun but not worth the money.

It’s a decent port (sorry for paragraphs)
If you’re like me, who played the flash version of this game years ago, possible in school? Maybe at work for others. This was one of my favorite flash games and when I saw that there was a mobile port of it I knew I wanted it eventually, and so I got it. It is quite fun, some challenging levels but not many. My only real problem with the game is that it doesn’t contain the original levels (maybe a few are from the original game, but the artwork remains the same which is nice) and I feel the weapons you can use have been tweaked or just don’t feel as powerful as the flash version of the game. In the original game, I liked that every new region you’d be introduced by some weapon smith giving you a new item to use, which is absent in this game. You do get new items, not in the same order as the original version. All in all, it’s decent, it contains the original Artwork, while giving some newer graphical changes, such as to the items you use against castles. I however wish there was more levels, I went for gold as I went along as when I finished all levels I had nothing further to do, and the “Editor” is very weird to use, at least for me. It’s hard to even things out.

Needs improvement
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.

Fun action, hilarious sounds
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.

A Blast!
Hear!Hear! How did I not know about this game until just recently! Yes it’s somewhat rudimentary and a bit short... but the gameplay is highly addictive and a tremendous amount of fun. The trebuchet action is brilliantly done, giving you a real sense of control over the launch of wonderfully imaginative and crazy projectiles! The ability to create your own “castles” is a great touch... I’ve had just as much fun with that feature as I had blasting my way to Gold on every level! Bravo!

Still fun, but the challenges still need work.
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.

Great puzzle game
This is the game if you want to simply throw projectiles at block castles. The different types of projectiles and blocks are easy to figure out, so it comes down to strategy and aim rather than pay-to-play special items with weird effects. The graphics are great (minus some silly optional prize skins), like real blocks and soldier figurines. Miles above the alleged “crush the castle siege master” game that stole its name.

Not that great of a port.
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.

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!!

How do you change weapons in builder?
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

Good, but....
Fun but you can’t use all your collected weapons in all the areas. There is one castle in particular that can’t be beat with a single throw. If I could use weapons from other conquests, it wouldn’t be an issue. It seems the older version would allow it but not this version. I want to be able to use any of my earned weapons on ANY castle.

Updated Review: Characters Were Too Small
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!

Forgot why I deleted this long ago
Sometimes very entertaining, but often frustrating because of lack of zoom control and unreasonable firing mechanic. On some of the castles the precision of targeting required is beyond the ability of the firing mechanic to support, and with the lack of zoom, the game often becomes simply a game of chance.

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!!

Keeping earned weapons
I like the old version better. Because I finished it, all it needed was more levels. This game does that perfectly. Although I don’t like the power downgrade of the bombs and the vortex, it is minor and actually does make the game more challenging. The only reason for 1 star is unlike the old game, not having the ability to carryover and use previously unlocked weapons and bombs to every region ruins the game for me.

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.

Poorly Done Level Difficulty
Many of the levels seem pretty haphazardly put together. Almost as though they tested them with late game unlocks rather than section appropriate items.

Still great after all these years
Not much to say but this physics game pre-dates Angry Birds. It's still a fun game to waste some time that doesn't have flashy graphics or consumes more battery. Still 5 stars.

Can’t turn off sound
I know this sounds simple but when I’m listening to a podcast my intended goal for some free time I can’t. I want to be able to play the mindless game to keep my thoughts on a podcast or audio book but I can’t turn the sound off. Please update this because I love the game from playing when I was a kid.

Impossible level. PLEASE HELP
On skull island in grey waste, the left most level is not possible to beat. I have been stuck on this level for some time now. The castle is too far to reach. I have tried every type of ammunition available although it is physically impossible to reach the targets. If anyone can help please let me know

Only reason I’m giving it 4 Stars is because this game deserves to be updated to fit the IPhone X Screen. Please Update? Other than that. Seeing that this game was in the App Store made me happy!

Fun for a few days
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.
