If you liked cartoon wars, and gunner, then you will love this.
Its the perfect blend of both, with tons of powerups to buy, and this time a nice little storyline too.

It was an instabuy for me, especially at a dollar, cuz I loved gunner. The gunner elements of this game, at least in the beginning, seem much shorter than the castle defense. Unlike gunner though, your character will "level up" after a certain amount of kills.

Its the exact same sprites from gunner. Exact same music as well. I'm startin to see why this was a dollar, though this may be an intro sale.

Other cool thing: 3 save slots, an absolutely awesome addition.

BIG PROBLEM: No gunner-style survival mode. I don't know about anyone else, but that was my favorite part of gunner, it was a nice, relatively short version that put all my favorite elements into the game in a nice neat package. I'm sad to see it gone, though hoping for an update.

Overall gunner feel: Way better than original. Character moves around more fluidly, weapon starts stronger than in gunner. However, at least in act 1, much less enemies to kill, no big swarms like in gunner, at least so far, likely easing my into the carnage.

Overall Castle Defense feel: There are 10 "classes" of ground units to use. Some can be ugraded many times, others much less. While the game says there are 80 units, thats true, but really, once you've ugraded the 10 units to the max, there are only really those 10 units. Also, when playing castle defense, can only use 5 units at a time. The cool new addition is air units, which are separate from ground units, giving you 5 additional types of units to use at any given castle defense level, for a total of 10 units to choose from at any given time to build and kill with.. They seem neat. One problem with air units: Can only purchase and start to use at the beginning of ACT 4. THERE ARE ONLY 6 ACTS!!!!! I feel like the game would be too easy in the beginning if you could use the air units, but the idea is so cool that I'm pissed I can't use them yet. And, since they are only usable for 3 acts, well, it feels kinda stupid.

Acts: There are 6 acts. In each acts there are about 15 levels of castle defense, 15 levels of gunner, and some extra bonus gunner levels if you so choose. Decent amount of content, but once again, there appears to be an actual limit to this game, unlike the never-ending gunner. For some reason, that saddens me, because maybe I'm just too into gunner.

Saving: I'm not sure if the game has auto-save, though i'd be shocked if it didnt. I only say this because there is a big ass save button, and the game constantly reminds me to save. that frightens me for some reason, cant the game just do this by itself? I'm spoiled by app store and flash game autosaving, BAH.

Overall, the best combination of castle defense, gunner style, and a storyline I've seen yet on the app store. If you like this kinda stuff, then go for it.

Thanks for the thorough review! It WAS going to be an instabuy for me, but I am not so sure after hearing there is only 6 acts. Both Gunner and Cartoon Wars are pretty much endless, so why spend a dollar on a much more limited game? Plus what you said about air units is disappointing.

I loved Cartoon Wars & Cartoon Wars Gunner. This is like the 2 combined, but kicked up 10 notches. Love the game so far. If you wanna power-level your guy, just beat most of the enemies & then die or "give-up" (from the menu).


EDIT: Just one question, what does LK (Luck?) do??
