GOBLIN CATAPULTS

This past week i've been working on the Goblin Catapult "monster".

Goblin Catapult:
AttackSpeed=Average
Health=High
MoveSpeed=Slow

These catapults are equipped with highly trained goblins, allowing them to throw rocks at maximum efficiency.

Here is a video showing them in action and what they do to castles.

Thanks for reading feedback is appreciated!

Looking great!

Catapults sometimes (<5%) throwing goblins would also be sweet. Imagine a goblin being catapulted through a window, or onto the top of your castle and then burrowing in. =)

That was one of my first ideas for the catapult actually (thought it would look weird at the time), and it could be easily implemented as well! Thanks for the suggestion

great stuff!

Perhaps have the catapult fire slower, but do more damage per hit? Would up the suspense when one appears :)

I agree it looks great but the catapult fires way to fast.

I've slowed the catapults firerate down, and now they do a little bit of splash damage to other destructible objects (castle wall, doors, player, chest, etc)
The catapults now fire every 5-7 seconds
