What do you get when you combine castles, rocks and a slingshot? Well, as you may have guessed, a fair amount of destruction. Those three things are set to come together in Wreckateer, a Kinect-controlled, XBLA-exclusive title.
In Wreckateer, gamers will basically be tasked with damaging and destroying as many castles as possible, with as few hits as possible. This will be done by loading a large slingshot, nee catapult, with rocks of varying sizes and attempting to turn the castles into piles of rubble. It may be that the above description does not give a clear enough picture of what to expect. Not to worry, as Iron Galaxy Studios' Dave Lang explains the inspiration behind their creation:

You should start ducking for cover in "Spring 2012", as rocks will start to fly when Wreckateer makes its arrival.
