17 stopped me.

Same here but I'm not giving up...even if I have to put in some overtime to get them all.

Finished level 24 - then you get to build & test your own castle!

It took me until level 21 to realize you can change ammo if you want, tho' I think the ammunition it selects is best for that level.

It seems like as you progress the ammo gets better...I could detect no benefits to using the single stone vs multiple, and the smaller stones vs larger.  I couldn't quite get enough height/distance to get the back row of baddies on level 17....

Finished them all!!!!   Take that you Royal Neo-Prohibitionists!!!  :D

And I didn't have to invoke any overtime so I actually saved the company money  ;)

I beat all 24, too. The ammo sure does make a difference. And what is selected is not necessarily the best for that castle. It's just what you last used. For proof, go back and play all the levels with the triple bomb. Good times boys. Good times.

Took me like an hour, but I got all 24. Building castles isn't nearly as fun as destroying them.

I built a big castle with lots of rooms and lots of people...but no supporting structure.   It's fun to watch the whole thing come crashing down when you hit "Test Castle"......bbbaahhhhhahhahahh

err, yeah - bad choice of words - I was trying to say, as you go up in levels, there is no point in trying a lesser ammunition.  I thought on some levels the big rocks might be better than bombs, but no.
Title: Re: Best game ever!
Post by: nicneufeld on May 26, 2010, 08:08:57 PM
Yes, but I did find that there is a subtle difference in range.  The small rocks seem capable of being launched further/higher, or at least, they bounce further when striking.  It is sad how fun that game is/was.

Post by: beerocd on May 26, 2010, 08:13:04 PM
I think it was 17, 21 and 24 I replayed. Those seem a bit based on luck, I wanted to see if I could do it again after apparently lucky shots with lucky topples. I played over and over until I got another lucky topple.

Post by: theDarkSide on May 26, 2010, 08:17:39 PM
The bombs sometimes kill the people without destroying a building.
Title: Re: Best game ever!
Post by: weazletoe on May 26, 2010, 10:24:47 PM
Bombs don't kill people. People kill people.
Title: Re: Best game ever!
Post by: rabid_dingo on May 26, 2010, 10:32:05 PM
I had to go back and try 17 and 21 after finally getting 24.  But I have all the ammo I earned. So no challenge any
more.

I have to admit there was an ad for Evony on the page when I first clicked on the link. I was mostly started on the
game before I realized it was not the game Weaze suggested.

Level one with the Triple bomb is silly.

Damn. You.  ;D

I really like the "Build your own." Try this: Build a fortification for one person using the least number of pieces, preferably the wood logs. Use the physics to your advantage. Do the most with the leastest!

Pics for clarity:

Not a bad little design. Best I could do, in fact. Unless you bowl one in low, this just keeps getting stronger the more you pile on there. Those are the big rocks.

Nice! Think I'm gonna go try it.

How does that hold up under a hail of bombs?
Title: Re: Best game ever!
Post by: MrNate on May 27, 2010, 03:59:16 PM
It doesn't. At all. I tried rebuilding it with stone, but it still gets blown to hell. Even if it stays intact, the king dies from the blast.

So... were getting a little tired of playing Crush the Castle after like 200hours or so.

Try this game, almost the same  ;D

Seems like he's running back and forth between Ohio and Idaho.

Post by: boulderbrewer on July 25, 2010, 04:27:42 PM
His place got hit by lighting, lost his laptop, tv, ps3 and phone. He has been traveling back and forth too. He is around on FB.

Post by: weazletoe on July 26, 2010, 12:56:25 AM
Hey "gentlmen". I'm still here. As BB said, I've been between Idaho and Ohio, about a dozen tiuems since I got here. In fact, I'm headed back to Ohio in the morning. And, just like he said, lightning hit about 20 ft off the corner of the mancave a couple mornings ago. Holly and I were sitting out there watching Ice Rad Truckers when it hit. I honestly thought I had died. Lost my laptop, my new fancy work phone and headset, my big tv, my PS3,  the cable modem and router, it blew two holes in my laminate flooring, and, worst of all, Porkchop is now completly deaf. (seriously. Iwould not joke about my dog)
  Insurance is going to pay for it all, with only a 250$ deductable. And, it looks like I'll be getting a few upgrades in the meantime. Stepping up from a 42", to a 50" tv. New laptop is going to be a heck of a lot nicer than the one I lost. (it was 1 1/2 years old) and I will be going from a 40gig, to a 250 gig PS3. So, besides of now having a deaf dog, it worked out pretty well.
  Other news, my grandma is about to pass away any day. Hospice has been called in. All of our stuff is still sitting in Ohio. THe plan is to meet my truck driver buddy there tomorrow, or Tuesday, and load it all up. Mancave is done except fora little bit of trim, and the final wiring hook ups. And, I have not brewed since about February. Thus, my absence from the board. It hurts to bad to read, knowing I cannot brew.
   I'll see if I can get some pics of the mancave up, tonight.
 
              Brew on!

There's a country song in this somewhere begging to come out.

Sorry about the dog and grandma, but congrats on the new toys!
