It's a fairly a simple game.
On the left you will have a leaf counter that goes up slowly, this is used to pay for pillar parts or make the gain faster.
Your pillar parts are under the battle field and what the little guy will look like is above it.
Each segment of the pillar is added to the head and then you send the little tyke off to kill.
Each part you add gives them some hp + whatever bonus the segment gives like say armor, speed, hp, defense, but most are weapons.
When you send them out they will start at your tree (left side unless your in co-op) and move out until they come to an enemy or the opponents tree.
At that point they will attack with what ever weapon they have or bite if they have none.
Push them back and take out their tree without them doing it to you first.
If the level was at the base of a tree on the level map you'll fight a boss.

After fights you can upgrade your pillars segments, the tree's leaf gain, tree hp, the trees gun or change your pillars skin.
There are also 3 animal helpers that you can buy to call in during a fight, a squirrel (gives you leaves), a turtle mage (slows enemies), & a bird (craps on all opponents and they will lose health).

I found the upgrading to be uninteresting,
the available parts to have preferential- rather than tactical- relation to one another,
the map interactions to be bland and repetitive, with the same tactics working each go,
the game was too easy,
the interface lacking,
and the game was overall just simply lacking in depth.

If you're into simple flash games, this is a well-presented time-killer:
But don't expect challenge, strategy, or anything overly demanding from the game.

If you're going into this expecting a complicated base defense or tactics-heavy game, you're going to be disappointed.

If you like tower defense games, you should definitely try this one. Although it is not the most original ever game created, it takes the best from TD games like Plants vs. Zombies, and combines it with fast-paced action to create something new. It includes lots of upgrades, power ups like machine guns and rocket launchers, and varied skins for your caterpillars which you can unlock via playing the game.

It doesn't make too much effort in the campaign mode, there's not even a determined story, just caterpillars fighting each others, but that doesn't make the game less funny; sometimes it gets repetitive, the different levels of each scenario don't change much from each other, but at the end of each scenario, you get to fight one of the hilarious bosses who are pretty challenging. Upon completing the campaign you unlock an endless mode, in which you can play without restrictions.

This game has a friendly user interface, allowing everyone to play it; also the learning curve is easy, but the game gets hard to master once you progress.

+Action-TD game
+Lots of upgrades and power-ups
+Easy to learn and hard to master
+Awesome last boss

-Levels get repetitive
-Short campaign

79/100 Very good
