Cannon Crasha ($0.99) by GangoGames LLC is a base defense game that challenges you to destroy your enemy’s castles.
Evil people keep building castles all over the place and you’ve been hired as the hero who’s going to stop them. You’re provided with a castle that comes with a powerful cannon and a team of warriors. Will that be enough to stop your enemies?
This game does an amazing job of introducing you to all of your tools. You start the game with nothing to worry about other than aiming and shooting your cannon. As you progress, new tools are introduced. You eventually end up having to aim and shoot your cannon, manage your warriors, and build defense layers.
Although you end up with a lot to think about, the fact that your tools are introduced in stages means you don’t get overwhelmed. As the game becomes more complex, you have to focus on a few things at once. You have to make sure that you send the right warriors out to battle, use the right cannon balls, and build the best defense structures. You also have to keep an eye on the direction and power of the wind.
You only need to use one finger to control everything in this game, but you do have to be quick. If you’re inactive for only a few seconds, your enemies will take the opportunity to do more damage to your castle. Cannon Crasha is easy to get started with, but does become more challenging as you progress.
The gameplay alone is enough to keep you entertained, but the witty comics and pixilated graphics also help this app stand out.
As with most base defense games, you do have the option of buying more powerful weapons and tools. You can upgrade your castle, cannon, or warriors. You earn virtual gems to pay for the upgrades by progressing through the game, or by buying them with in-app purchases that cost between $0.99 and $4.99.
If you like base defense games that challenge you to act quickly, you’ll enjoy this app. You can get Cannon Crasha for both the iPhone and iPad for $0.99 in the App Store.
