According to the instruction screen, the King of Town has gone crazy and is firing cannon shots at Strong Bad's castle. Strong Bad's only method of defense is catapults loaded with food. The King of Town has four cannons to shoot, while Strong Bad is given five catapults to launch food with.

The object of the game is to achieve the highest score before time runs out. The King of Town scores 25 points for each cannon shot that hits Strong Bad's side. Strong Bad must make the King of Town eat the food on his catapults, and every time he does so successfully he scores 10 points and the King is momentarily distracted while he finishes eating.

[edit] How to play

"You gotta beat his score!!"

According to the instruction screen, the King of Town has gone crazy and is firing cannon shots at Strong Bad's castle. Strong Bad's only method of defense is catapults loaded with food. The King of Town has four cannons to shoot, while Strong Bad is given five catapults to launch food with.

The object of the game is to achieve the highest score before time runs out. The King of Town scores 25 points for each cannon shot that hits Strong Bad's side. Strong Bad must make the King of Town eat the food on his catapults, and every time he does so successfully he scores 10 points and the King is momentarily distracted while he finishes eating.

The winner is rewarded with cupcakes, while the loser is punished by being lowered into either a cauldron full of hot melted butter (King) or The Poopsmith's pile of whatsit (Strong Bad).
