Fling boredom away with Catapult, a rockin new game for BlackBerry!

Catapult for BlackBerry by Dekerta Software
By Michelle Haag on 23 Mar 2011 09:14 am EDT
A common goal of games on mobile devices these days is to see how far you can fling, jump, fly, or soar an object or character. I found a game last night that is in this genre, called Catapult, by Dekerta Software. The objective is simply to fling your rock through the air, and see how far it will go. There are targets you can hit which increase your score, springboards on the ground that bounce you back up into the air with a burst of speed, and sandboxes that will bring your stone to an immediate halt.

Catapult has a great UI with simple graphics and a really smooth feel. I played on my Torch (also compatible with 83xx, Curve 85xx, 89xx, 9000, 93xx, 91xx, 95xx, 96xx, 9670, 97xx,and 9800) for almost a half hour, and the game never lagged or felt sluggish. I hope the future brings updates like maybe more levels or different sized rocks or something, just to mix it up. For now though, I feel Catapult is worth the $.99 price tag.  My high score (so far!) is 58,487. If you beat me, post your score in the comments!

Fling boredom away with Catapult, a rockin new game for BlackBerry!


How is it like Angry Farm??? Angry Farm is a game where you have to destroy stuctures and 'pop' the foxes inside them. Catapult is a game where you try to fling a stone as far as you can. I personally would LOVE to try this, and I would by it if I could.

which is a copy off of angry birds. which is a copy off of numerous sling this or fling that flash based games. which is a copy of a illegal real life game called what can be flung. which is a copy off of pumpkin chunkin. which is a copy off of war time boulder or large heavy object flinging. which is a large copy off of simple sling shot and stone. so everybody copy!

Can one of you guys do a quick review to show us how the experience is with this game because I have a feeling it will be like Angry Farm, slow and sluggish.

I can't play Angry Farm for 5 minutes before I'm frustrated at how laggy it is. This game (as I noted in the post :P) isn't sluggish or choppy at all.
