looks cool... but i can't help but wonder if this is cartoon wars with different graphics. It has the same arrow shooting system and everything.

The graphics do look nice though

Games I'm Playing: Doom Classic, Red Conquest!, Battle for Wesnoth, Land Air Sea Warfare (my favorite rts, buy it today!)

I've been playing the lite version - it's pretty good. The coolest part is that your units can have special purchasable skills! That definitely makes this game unique vs. other games of this type (though I don't know cartoon wars that well, I don't remember it having this feature).

However, I just hit a major problem - after I complete round 5, the game freezes on the results screen - every time. Don't know about the full version, but if it's the same, I definitely won't be buying.
