This game deserves WAY more atention. The game used to have a pretty good community however as time went on it kind of died off. Now that its summer sale I would really recomend getting this game. It is LOADS of fun to play with your freinds especialy on a tv. (all you raspberri pi users you can stream games from steam to your tv pretty easily)

Overall it is great fun unique gameplay. great looking cartoony graphics. and loads of fun 10/10

Awesome 1v1 RTS. It has made my heart race lots of times, it gets very intense when you battle, since there are all these timers and things to be aware of. The only negative is that there are not that many players and sometimes you may not find a multiplayer game quick enough. I highly recommend it though!

Definitely a different RTS game, compared to others... It's like a Platformer mixed with an RTS, and gives a really interesting "1v1" feel. This is another Great Game to play with the accompaniment of another person. :)

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.

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.

Nearly 200 hours in this game and if you look through my steam games, that doesn't happen too often.

This is a great game for competitive RTS, the down-side is the community is rather inactive but does have its moments when it can get really busy!

Basically, think a game like the Worms game in RTS form with "towers" that you can upgrade. Although there could be more of a selection of weapons to use, the limited amount keeps a good balance and still gives a good variety mixed with all the types of characters you can choose from.

Lots of strategies, lots of fun, but limited community.. join in guys, and help it grow. I'm currently rank #2(The first guy.. has wayyy too many hours in this game among other things.) and need some real competitors! Only a few people that still play on occasion are my only challenge. Others are questionable or use spammy techniques, I strive for real opponents!

If you've ever liked the Worms franchise, this is deffinitely a step up. When I had just finished installing it for the first time and wanted to try it out, before I knew it an hour had passed.

9.2/10
This game was deffinitely entertaining to play. It's simple, fun, and it can be very addicting. The gameplay is fast, but the controls are really easy to get used to - especially if you play through the singleplayer campaign.
