Winging its way to the Xbox Live Arcade later this year is Pinball FX developer Zen Studios' next game, a blend of Angry Birds-style 2D destruction, tower defence and real-time strategy called CastleStorm. Set in a bold and colourful medieval world, CastleStorm features 2D archery and a 2D physics-based destruction element alongside its RTS bits and resource management.
As well as launching arrows, you'll also be able to pelt the enemy using your ballista, launching a variety of projectiles including Morningstars, Homing Eagles, Apple Grenades and Flying Sheep. You'll need to ramp up your defences and prevent the marching hordes of enemies attempting to capture your flag and destroy your castle. You'll also be able to send out your ground army, consisting of swordsmen, knights and donkey riders.
If all that fails to keep your castle and flag safe, you can also resort to casting spells to fend off Direwolves, Bear Riders and Hammer Throwers. CastleStorm will be coming to the Xbox Live Arcade later in 2012. Check out the trailer and screens below.
