Cartoon Wars 2 is an active real time strategy tower defense game. The premise is to build units to attack your enemy’s castle while at the same time assisting your units by shooting a gun that you have mounted to your castle. I am not a fan of these types of games. The premise is a little too one sided and it feels like you don’t have much control of what’s actually going on in the game. However, for this type of game I did find Cartoon Wars 2 to be the most interesting tower defense type game so far. The reviews for this game typically give it rave reviews so I would have to assume that most people like this type of game.
Cartoon Wars 2 Walkthrough / Guide
The solo part with your hero is pretty self explanatory. It is just like the previous versions of Cartoon Wars where you move around and shoot in the direction of the bad guys coming at you. The tower defense portion however is very different. There is one line of troops for you to defend against, you can keep production units as well as using your catapult. You also have a special move that launches fire arrows everywhere for an extra cost. The cost of units as well as special moves is in the upper right. There isn’t really a tutorial to play, just a beginning screen that shows you where everything is. I would recommend trying to pump out spear men at first as well as making sure to use your catapult to help you when you are low on men. To be honest I really dislike the ability not to send men in when you want to. Having them trickle in towards a large force is kind of ridiculous.
Graphics: Good. Cartoon style graphics give it a very retro type feel. The game is designed to be that way. It does seem a bit rough though even for cartoons.
Sound/Music: The music and sounds are pretty good.
Pros: It has an interesting premise and game play style.
Cons: You can’t send men in how you want them. Once again to compete you probably have to buy currency to upgrade. I know people are in the business to stay in business and that means making money, but a quality product FOR that money would be nice as well and I don’t think this is it.
Addiction level: Medium. Tower defense games are not my thing. This one does have a bit more to offer than most though. If you like tower defense games this is a good choice, I honestly just think they don’t have enough to them.
