About the Game

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

Early Access Review
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.

Early Access Review
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.

Build towers and launch weapons or defenses with them. Minor resourse accumulation, major land destruction. You need to protect and attack land as much as buildings, enough said, this game is awesome and over quickly. Kill the main castle at the back of the base FTW.

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.
