Soundtrack Edition Now Available


Hey guys, we recently added a Cannon Brawl Soundtrack Edition, thanks to Disasterpeace. In game you may have noticed a lot of the music is a dynamic complex layered system set up to match the intensity of the battle. To make the soundtrack, Disasterpeace re-worked all his music from the game into full songs!

And to celebrate, everything is 25% off for a limited time!

You can also get the soundtrack from Disaterpeace's website: http://music.disasterpeace.com/album/cannon-brawl-ost

New Build - 1.26 - Tuning/Bombardment Retired

Game design often involves a lot of experimentation, and some experiments don’t always pan out. And on that note we’ve removed bombardment. It was intended to allow weaker players a small chance of beating more experienced players and feel like they at least made a dent before being beaten. However, more often it felt arbitrary and didn’t achieve its design goals for either player. The cost of keeping it in outweighs its benefits so we’ve removed it.

We’ve also slightly tweaked the bomb bots in order to make them harder to spam with early game, but more viable later in the game.

Update Notes:
  • Removed bombardment
  • Changed bomb bot cooldown to 18/18/18 from 17/18/19
  • Changed bomb bot building cost to 65/70/75 from 60/70/80

As always, let us know what you think!

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”

I instantly loved this game from the first round I played it. It's Starcraft meets Worms, in a very accessible and fun package. The design is top notch and has a ton of depth, I've tried all sorts of strategies and was surprised at how well some of them worked. Super awesome!

Love this game!!! There's Cannons, Strategy, corny humor, time challenges for trophies, etc. Plus, there's Trading Cards, and I'm a sucker for those. ;P

But, seriously, this game feels like a mix-up of a simple tower defense and a Worms-like weapon system. You place your weapons like a Tower Defense, but you also have to select them, aim them, and fire them yourself... no automatic firing with makes this one more unique.

If you want some awesome mashed-up strategy, tower defense, and cannon shooting gameplay, this one is a must buy.

I first played an early version of this at PAX a few years ago and immediately fell in love! They've done a great job of creating a game that really mixes the traditionally more turn based projectile game with RTS elements that keep 100% of your attention focused for the whole game.

Even though it didn't really need it I enjoyed the single player campaign as a great way to learn about all the different towers and had fun writing.

I really love the core concepts and art style of Cannon Brawl, I just wish more people were playing it!

Even with my hectic work schedule, I make sure I am playing this game at least once a week. It gives me my RTS fix without giving me the stress that Starcraft unloads on me.

Good game! I would love to see a tablet port of this game, if that's even possible. I would totally be kicking back on the couch with my iPad with this game :)
