Free Demo Released - Includes Multiplayer!



Want to play Cannon Brawl with your friends? We’ve released a free demo so your friends can try it out!

We want to get our multiplayer lobbies bursting with new people so you can always find opponents, whether you’re using our matchmaking system or inviting a friend. That’s why we’ve decided to open up the game for players to try it free.

To celebrate, we’re also putting on a sale this week. If you like what you see, you can get the full game for 40% off!

The free demo allows you to play skirmish games against the AI, unranked multiplayer, and you can accept invites to friend matches from owners of the full game. You’ll get one airship pilot and 5 war machines to try out.

The full game includes much more. It’s got a twenty mission campaign with boss battles, nightmare mode, tons more airship pilots and units to unlock, puzzle levels, and competitive ranked multiplayer.

A demo you say, so why is it called Free-To-Play?
A big part of Cannon Brawl is its intense multiplayer matches. We want demo players and owners of the full game to be able to fight each other in unranked multiplayer matches. With steam matchmaking, this ends up being called Free-To-Play. But for Cannon Brawl, you can think of it as a demo. There are no microtransactions or in game purchases. If you like the free demo, you can buy and enjoy the full game like you would with any other demo.

See you on the battlefield!

New Build 1.2 - Comeback Bombardment

Big update today featuring a whole new mechanic for the game! We've added a new ultimate power that charges up as your buildings take damage and will allow you to comeback from small mistakes early on.

Features
  • Added a new mechanic: Comeback Bombardment. As you take damage and your buildings are destroyed you can bombardment power, displayed on the top of the screen. When your meter is full you can call in a bombardment on your enemy by pressing space. The enemy buildings nearest your airship will be targeted. This is to prevent small mistakes in the beginning costing you the game and to provide for more dynamic and surprising matches. We will likely be tuning this going forward.
  • Tweaked random building select to not pick bank and mountain maker so often
  • Tweaked random map select to force more variety

Tuning:
  • Shields now completely absorb Frost Tower shots
  • Increased frost tower level 2 cost to 60 from 55
  • Increased frost tower cooldowns by 1 second per level
  • Lowered warhead life to 10/15/20 from 15/20/25

Fixes:
  • Fixed crash on OSX Yosemite when spacebar was pressed
  • On mac, non-xbox 360 Gamepads should behave better
  • Fix for rare case where an orphaned lobby would impede matchmaking

    As always let us know what you think!

“...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

“Cannon Brawl takes two classic genres and remixes them in a very smart, exciting, and elegant way”
Justin Davis - IGN

Cannon Brawl is a unique mixture of RTS and Action with a fun campaign as well as great local and online multiplayer. In Cannon Brawl you choose one of a number of different airships, each with their own pilot and special attributes, and you build turrets to destroy your enemy as well as defend your main building as well as towers and gold mines.

+Nice 2D graphics, very colourful
+Simple and easy-to-navigate world map where you can find the game's missions and challenges
+Unique gameplay, you can build towers anywhere on the map (as long as you have a nearby territory balloon) but choosing your tower locations strategically is very important
+You control each tower individually when firing and the aiming system is very good
+A wide variety of unique, as well as familiar, towers each with upgrades that can be purchased during missions to make the towers more powerful/more effective
+Five different airships to choose from
+Maps are fully destructible
+Good variety of map size
+Has singleplayer, online multiplayer and local multiplayer gamemodes
+Has challenges which can be completed to earn EXP and level your profile up
+Towers have reasonable/fair cooldown times
+Lots of explosions
+Has achievements and Trading Cards

+/-You can only equip five towers in each mission which can sometimes be quite annoying as you need good variety in your roster while keeping a good balance of tower costs
+/-It is clearly intended that you use a controlle

-I found it the singleplayer got repititive very quickly when playing singleplayer
-Some of the airship attributes are far more useful than others which effects the balance

Verdict:
7

A great RTS/Action game that delivers a great multiplayer experience but gets boring quite quickly in singleplayer, get it to play with friends.

Cannon Brawl is worth buying if you've enjoyed playing the Worms franchise over the years, and are looking for something new added to the formula.

Very fun, highly recommend for same-screen competitive battling. Sort of a light RTS mixed with tower-trajectory style gameplay. It's not super deep but I easily got my time and money's worth.

This is a really solid game that mixes the artillery and RTS genres together perfectly. It cuts out all of the wait time normally associated with an artillery type of game and replaces it with RTS elements. This makes for a much more fast paced and enjoyable experience that still retains the fun of angling shots over long distances to hit enemies.

Excellent, absolutely love it. 8.8 / 10

A friend introduced me to Cannon Brawl and we played at work, since then i bought and played and loved every bit. There is a slight unbalance in terms of the weaponary, and i feel is lacking the amount of sheer insanity that Worms has as a similar game. That aside, I urge you to purchase and support this game. Very well made, very well managed from what i can see from the devs taking on feedback, and very well executed.

Kind of like an real-time strategy version of Worms! It's really good fun and there is quite a bit of depth to the strategy side of it. I think playing in the online ranked matches is going to give this game a long life. Check out my video for gameplay and impression on the game:

This game is great. My friends and I have been playing it since the greenlight prelease on Steam and it's amazing. It has a great blend of twitch/strategy, the art is excellent, perhaps the only thing I can think of that would improve the game is enabling 4 player so that I could get my other good friend in on our brawl sessions.

Cannon Brawl.

It's a good game. Soundtrack is really good, art is fine as wine, and playableitiy is good.

Runs okay, game is capped at 60, but setting menu leaves a lot to be desired. For resolution, you get fullscreen on/off.
That's it.

Game does provide a nice portion of challenge and it nicely guides into it, through the campaign.
The story, or what is there of it, is fairly nice, for me it seems like there are even some gurren laggan references? Though that might just be me.

in the end, it's a very nice tug of war. And my only complaint is tat 15E is a bit much. More like 10E.

This is a super fun real-time scorched-earth-like game. Especially multiplayer.

But the placement of buildings can be awkward at times, with some buildings preventing others from being placed easily.

And, sometimes it will pair you up with 'Gort' who isn't a human player even though you didn't choose to fight an AI.

a fun 2D side scrolling "tower defence" game. made for children but enjoyable by a large range of people. It is also a test of speed and strategy as well. Theres a large selection of towers and characters with perks and a unlock system to get more. Check it out so you have more of idea, but I do reccomend it.
