"To knock a thing down, especially if it is cocked at an arrogant angle, is a deep delight of the blood." -George Santayana
I would fathom to guess that ol' George Santayana may have built a sandcastle or two, just for the thrill of participating in its destruction. A lot of games have taken a cue from this philosophy: Space Invaders, Star Castle, and Tron all used destructible elements. Even modern games have destroyable cover, wreckable cars, and exploding creepers. The good folks at Zen Studios, creators of Star Wars Pinball and FX Pinball (Zen Pinball if you play on a Sony), are bringing gamers the modern downloadable equivalent of kicking over your brother’s Lego fortress: CastleStorm arrives on XBLA on May 29th.
