Zen Studios, which found success through its pinball games, is branching out and showed off Kickbeat and CastleStorm at Gamescom. Here's the latest screens for the real-time strategy, castle vs. castle physics based destruction game launching this autumn, "first on Xbox."
CastleStorm is a hybrid of 2D archery and 2D physics-based structure destruction games.
Peace has been upon the realm for centuries. Knights and Vikings have forgotten past grievances, living in civilized coexistence, deriving the benefits of immortality from colorful jewels betrothed by the beautiful Peace Goddess. However, all good things must come to an end, and ominous clouds of war are on the horizon when the Knights’ jewel is stolen and delivered to the hand of the Vikings. It is time to take up arms, deploy mighty warriors, harness the power of the ballista, and master magical spells in your quest to recover the stolen jewel and restore peace to the realm. CastleStorm features colorful enchanted environments, magical spells, and an arsenal fit for above-average medieval warriors.
