Cannon Brawl blast into Beta - New Build 0.9.9!

July 7th, 2014


We’re excited to announce with this update, Cannon Brawl is now in Beta! Beta marks one of the last remaining steps until final release. The game has come a long way since our launch last year and we’ve added a ton: nightmare mode, puzzle levels, new buildings and pilots, and new multiplayer maps.

Thanks everyone for all the feedback. Cannon Brawl is the best game we’ve ever worked on, and it wouldn’t have been possible with your help!

And now for the notes for this particular build:

Features/Improvements:
  • Added the Knight pilot. Every 45s the knight can heal a building for 5 life and increase it’s maximum life by 5. His buildings will be hard to beat if you stack them with floating platforms and repair centers! He’s waiting in the armory to be unlocked.
  • Added the Lightning Rod building. This is a territory balloon replacement that bestows flames, shots, and lasers a damage bonus if they pass through the lighting rod’s area of effect. The bonus also stacks, so you can set up a path of lightning rods for lots of extra damage. These combo with the missile towers for devastating effect. We’ll likely need a lot of tuning feedback on this one! The Lightning rod is also in the armory.
  • Added Monthly Ranking leaderboard. This leaderboard tracks players ranking activity for the current month. This uses a monthly elo, which separate from your all time ranking. Each month this will reset and the monthly leaderboard will be cleared so you can start anew at staking your claim as the top brawler.
  • Lots of visual tweaks
  • Added a few new sound effects
  • A new quest is now generated immediately after a current quest is completed
  • Added a new quest: Flank the Shields - Destroy shield towers while their shields are active
  • Added a new quest: Three by Three - Win a multiplayer game or Battle vs. AI (insane) with at least three fully upgraded towers remaining. (Thanks to QQTastic for this one).

Fixes:
  • Changed the way sounds settings are saved. This will cause everyone’s volume levels to reset once when they get the new build, but they should save normally afterwards.

Finally, because we've added so much to the game since launch, we're pricing the game at $14.99 for the 1pk and $19.99 for the 2pk. But, we're running a 40% off week long sale at the same time in case you want to get in close to the original price.

Reviews

“...just think of your typical real-time strategy mechanics in a 1v1 scenario and cut out all the boring parts so it’s fast-paced and exciting practically every second.”
Chris Priestman - Indie Statik

“Worms, StarCraft, and Combat collide in one of the best new action-RTS game designs in years.”
Sam Machkovech - Ars Technica

About the Game

Get ready to play the next evolution of the artillery genre!

Cannon Brawl is an exciting mix of real time strategy and artillery gameplay. Command your airship to capture gold mines and build everything from cannons to lasers. Drop attack buildings from your airship, then pop into them to take skill shots at your opponent in real time. Upgrade each building to boost its devastating power. Advance across the kingdom in single player to unlock and discover new buildings, then experiment with each one to find your favorite combination in online multiplayer.

Choose from over fourteen buildings and five airship pilots (with more to come) for a huge variety of strategic combinations. Want to turtle up and launch big warheads from afar? You can! Want to rush to the high ground and launch a rain of missiles from above? You can! Try out tons of other strategies and crush your friends!

Cannon Brawl will challenge your ability to manage priorities, coordinate attacks and defenses, and focus through the madness of battle.

Its somethinh very special because normally these kind of games ar turned based but this one isn't, what means that there's always something to do: booting up your shields, firing your tons of difrent type of turrets or extending your territory. games can be fast past with armor breatching attacks or can be very stratigic and extremly exciting. the only thing i hope from this game is that when it finishes it doesn't become on of the many pay-to-win games, please developers don't do microtransactions.

A very addicting and well crafted game.

There aren't a lot of players online, so if you try to do ranked you will be mathched up vs either Gort or Watson, two ranked bots programmed into the game.

At first ranked will be easy as you climb the ladder, you only get a tiny amount of points for winningm but you lose billions of points for defeats, so If you play for an hour straight and only won, ONE DEFEAT WILL TAKE ALL OF IT AWAY.

Ranked needs to be fixed and ballancing might have to occur. Overall, there needs to be more players.

BUY THIS GAME but do yourself a favor and stay away from ranked until more people are active and the elo system is adjusted.
