How to play

"You gotta beat his score!!"

According to the instruction screen, the King of Town has gone crazy and is firing cannons at Strong Band's castle. Strong Band's only method of defense is a series of catapults with food on them.

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.

End game animations

THE KING OF TOWN: The punishment is not too bad, eh?

Fun Facts

Trivia

  • This was originally released as part of the 2003 April Fool's gag.

Remarks

  • A good way to ensure victory is to fire bombs in quick succession top to bottom, and at the bottom going back to the by-then charged top catapult.
  • During the ending cutscenes, an older design of the King of Town was used.
  • Strong Bad cannot get points unless he actually hits the King, while the King only has to get a bomb to Strong Bad's side.
  • The King of Town appears in a total of seven positions. Three of them are between cannons, which means he cannot attack you for about two seconds.

Glitches

  • If you get a higher score a split second before the other hits you and the timer runs out, you win anyway, like 120-125.
  • A good way to see the "You Win" screen is if you right-click and hit "Play" while the King is saying "I rule the school!" You have to play the Flash file to do this.
  • If the game freezes temporarily and takes longer than the allotted time to recover, the timer will read negative, and the game will continue indefinitely.
