Needless to say Zen Studios, one of two major pinball platform publishers, have made a name for themselves when it comes to pinball tables and their pinball platform Zen Pinball. Now they are looking to invade a whole range of genres with their upcoming game CastleStorm.
With what looks like a blending of physics-based puzzler, such as Angry Birds, and combining it with RTS and tower defense genres, CastleStorm looks to be quite the entertaining and challenging game. While you will be catapulting shots at the enemies castle, you will also have to concern yourself with ground troops and sending them off into battle with enemy troops. This type of troop warfare is generally found in siege RTS games.
To top it all off, you have your own castle that you need to defends from the enemy and you will also have defenses on that to deal with as well. Visually, the game looks pretty amazing and considering what Zen Studios’ pinball tables look like, this isn’t really surprising at all.
Currently CastleStorm is slated for release on PC and consoles first with a mobile version coming shortly after. You can check out the trailer above to get an idea about CastleStorm although that footage looks to be from the PC version.
