We are so excited to announce that our super genre mashup CastleStorm will release on Xbox LIVE® Arcade on May 29th for 800 MSP!
Inspired by the fond childhood memory of building and destroying Lego castles, CastleStorm mixes things up with 2D physics destruction blended with tower defense brawler and a comical story, allowing players to control their offenses and defenses in real time over a 12-level single player campaign as well as multiple co-op and multiplayer modes.CastleStorm is all about customization! The game features a dynamic castle editor allowing players to construct their own castles which can be used during gameplay, including multiplayer battles! Be sure to check out the official CastleStorm website and our many blog posts outlining the characters and weapons of our latest game!
The weekend is at hand and that means it’s Achievement Challenge time! The rules are simple, the prizes are awesome, and the challenge is fun! Click Read More for all the details on the Weekend Achievement Challenge!
I’ve mentioned before how I sometimes go through phases of wanting to get as many Achievements as I can in a short amount of time. Hearing that little pop sound on my console or on my Surface make me giddy inside. Usually, I’ll get frustrated when trying to get harder Achievements and eventually give up on them, but then I wondered…what Achievement took you the longest to get? Check out the Games page and let me know which game it was and what the name of the Achievement is below in the comments. I’ll try and go back through the game and get the Achievement myself (if I don’t already have it)! If you’re feeling extra generous, give me a few pointers on how you got it and any tips you might have.
