Tired of Rovio’s “pre-hysterical” The Croods? Then try the newly released iOS game Caveman Wars from Advanced Mobile Applications.

Unlike in The Croods, you’re not tasked to build a prehistoric village in Caveman Wars. Rather, the village, as it were, has been built. You just have to protect it.

Specifically, you have to defend your hut from a tribe of wild cavemen and a pack of even wilder creatures. Both groups of man and beast are out to get your food, so better not be crude with your defensive tactics.

As you may have already guessed, Caveman Wars is a strategic tower defense game. But it’s actually also a deck-building game in which you must use different weapon cards to keep your enemies farther away from your hut and closer to being history.
