Slings and videogames?
Mar 27th, 2011 at 6:45am
 
Hallo there,
I've made a search for such a topic, but have found nothing.
So, the question is: have you ever find slinging action in some videogame?

I know that good, old Baldur's Gate offers the sling as a weapon, with magical projectiles too; any other videogame?

Greetings,
Mauro.

The various strategy games like Rome Total War offer units of slingers as you would expect.

In Pitfall: the Mayan Adventure, the hero wields a sling as a ranged weapon. You pressed the Y button which whirled the sling, then release the button to let the stone go.

Battle for Wesnoth has slings, and they are actually pretty respectable overall.

  I played runescape for a few years, got sick of it as I realized I was just playing for stats and there wasn't much actual gameplay anymore...  That's neat that they have slings now though.  What kind of ammo do you use?

  An older game I really like is Stronghold Crusader, they have slings in that one, it's a very fun game.

The slings in Runescape are disappointing, they are pretty weak.  Sad

runescape slings are for nubs only. they are a scam by jagex to get millionares, LIKE ME Grin, to think it was some high powered weapon, then spend 30 gp on them. proven fact
