This is a simple two player game where the strategy is to blow up your opponent's castle with cannon fire. You can play it by yourself and still be challenged because of the differing terrain where the castles reside. Just predict the angle that the cannon needs to be (from 0 to 90 degrees) along with the velocity of the cannon ball in order to reach the other castle. Then FIRE!

The different slopes of terrain, and taking into account the wind speed make each game different and challenging. There are a few funny "easter eggs" in this game that will be sure to amuse.
