CastleStorm is a 2013 game developed by Zen Studios released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Wii U, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. A remastered version called CastleStorm: Definitive Edition was released in 2014.


CastleStorm features a mix of battle and adventure in its gameplay. The player plays a number of characters obtained from completing separate game "campaigns", starting with the default character, Sir Gareth who is introduced in the first campaign, Kingdom Quest. There are four separate campaigns featured in the game, all set in slightly different points of time, with the last being, "The Warrior Queen".



Castlestorm received "mixed or average" reviews, according to review aggregator Metacritic. It was praised for physics, visuals, and real-time strategy, but was criticized for a repetitive storyline and pointless missions. IGN called the game an "Angry Birds for those of us who like our projectile-based arcade games served not with cantankerous cardinals, but rather with enough braided Viking beards to put The Hobbit trilogy to shame". IGN made points such as slippery ballista controls.[1]

Push Square stated the game was for those who liked multitasking.[2]
