There are far better TD games for free on the Internet and Superior for money (WC3 SC2) , this one is not very good at all.
-You can not place towers everywhere, only on pre-chose spots and there are few of them.
-There are few towers and few uppgrades for them.
-Boring Enemies.
-Unable to use all money because all towers are built and uppgraded before map is done.

Maybe, just maybe, if this game was for free I could have spent a few hours on this game Once and never played it again.

This game is a very standard Tower Defence game.
I found the setting and graphics enjoyable, but the game is very short. I passed it in 4,5 hours of play, or less. There is a hard mode, but I'm not interested in setting accomplishments.
There were a few things I disliked. Sometimes, you are simply not given enough tower spaces. This makes gameplay more difficult as you are forced to shuffle turrets, depending on which enemy is incoming next wave. Contorls are ok, but sometimes tricky. It's definitely easier on tablet with 2 hands, rather than mouse with single pointer. But, it is ok with mouse too.
Also, I just have to mention that I found the music very repetitive and kinda annoying. It is a consequence of this being a budget game...
Overall, I can only recommend it on sale, due to low replayability. It has no endless modes either, just 24 levels.
For a few hours of fun, though, it is ok!

This is a great little tower defense game with a World War I motif. There is a good selection of uprgradable towers, but not so many that the amount of choice is overwhelming. You've got all the tools you need: machine guns, mortars, cannons, flak guns, etc. The maps are interesting (and challenging as you get further into the game). Limited tower placement sites, as well as limited line-of-sight, adds to the challenge on many of the maps. The game speed can be controlled as well -- speed up when you're mowing down your enemies, slow down when you need to re-think your strategies.
I had tons of fun playing this. It's entertaining, and it's only $5. Win-win! Highly recommened.

It's a tower defense game. Aaaand... well, it's nothing more than an ordinary defence game.

The game is very playable and enjoyable. The difficulty increases with every level and I must admit it starts to be very challenging at some point.

The graphics looks like everything was a paper model. It is really nice and well done.
That's what made me to play this game at the first place.

And I don't regret, I had a really good time with it.

This one is going to get a thumb up ... under certain conditions:

1.- You are looking for a very simplistic tower defence (TD), with basic mechanics

2.- You are looking for a TD with pre-defined tower emplacement, predefined and not very numerous

3.- You are looking for a TD with few tower types, and with basic upgrades (no customatization at all)

4.- You are looking for a TD where the location of the different towers is paramount, do not try to experiment, it will not work

5.- You are looking for a TD with decent stetics, cartoon like images, decent sound and not taxing on you computer.

On a side note, looking from the tower can be quite entretaining actually. It gets boring fast though.

In summary, do not expect a great challenge or fast paced TD. A good enough time killer.

It can be hardcore at the end of the game (in expert mode) so prepare for zillion trying... I mean trying what to build in the first place, then you have to destroy and built a different turret in time, so its not just a set and forget tower defense. I love it! 5 tower/turret types, 3 upgrades per tower, air and ground enemies, 24 levels and easy archievements.

By the way... only buy this game if you look at this as a puzzle solving game. You don't have too much freedom because especially in expert mode, you have to build things in a specific order in a specific time. If you want 3D, big maps where you can do anything you want, then this is not your game.
If you want to use your brain and think a lot of about how to solve each levels and you don't really care about the fancy things, then you won't be disappointed.

Got this on sale a couple of nights ago, and probably spent a good 10-15 hours playing. Getting through the levels is one thing, getting through with a perfect score is another, but can be done after tweaking and many attempts. Graphics are great; overall a fun little game that is addictive as hell. Well worth the full price, a no-brainer on sale.

A little "rough around the edges" but a quite fun Tower Defense game!

The game offers the traditional turrets (gun, cannon, flak cannon, artillery, etc) to use against the standard enemies and presents them in an fabulous toy "battle field" and then proceeds to send 10 increasingly more difficult waves at you. If you survive that mission there's another different challenge on the next map with 24 total levels in the campaign.

On the good side:
+ I quite liked the graphics and the style.
+ The expected / nice variety of towers, enemies, etc.
+ It was entertaining
+ Just what I was looking for in a 'toy box' Tower Defense (TD) game

On the OK side:
~ Music / Sound could have been better.
~ Nothing outstanding / unique about the game. More-or-less standard-fare for a TD game
~ No benefit to saving your cash (earned by destroying enemies) either in a score at the end of the game, or in "interest" of earning cash during the mission by using better placement of the right type of gun.

On the down side:
- Later missions are fairly ridiculous in their layouts such as very few locations to place a turret, and another where the path is straight across the screen.
- Turrets are annoyingly stupid, shooting trees/obstacles repeatedly
- The devs have designed the paths to take advantage of this poor turret AI the player must deal with
- Few places to put your turrets, so the devs have given you very little choice/variety to still get you a 3-Star victory.

Overall: I really enjoyed my 5.5 hours to complete the campaign against the paper army, but it could have been much better with better maps and a little more polish. 7.5 / 10

What can I say about this game? It's absurdly addictive :)

Really wasn't expecting much of anything from this title at all.
I bought it on sale figuring it'd make a nice mindless game for my 6 year old son. As it turned out, it made a nice mindless game for Dad - LOL. No kidding, I love it!

Waves and waves of progressively harder enemy armored cars, tanks, and planes attempt to navigate the maze of defensive measures you place to stop them. You start off each battle with a set amount of cash to buy pre-positioned guns. As you kill the enemy tanks and planes, you get more cash to buy new guns or upgrade existing ones.

There is nothing to the manning of the emplacements (they fire by themselves)... the skill comes with what type of gun to buy, when to get it, where to put it, and in what sequence. A sole gun in the right (or wrong) place at the right (or wrong) time can make the difference between plastering the enemy before he gets his steam up, or getting overrun by the hun.

The music is a blend of cheesy bravado-style muscle pumping arcade noise - that somehow meshes perfectly with the action (I wouldn't change it). The interface is remarkably easy (took me all of 10 seconds to figure it out - with no manual), and the entertainment value is undeniable. For those who would complain about the graphics, I say they are perfect for what it is. For those who would call the game too repetitive, I would guess they were not around decades ago to enjoy the genre of arcade games like Pacman, Asteroids, or Space Invaders.

Nothing special to see here. As is the norm for these type of games, three or four levels in, the poop hits the fan and it becomes a case of repeat the level until you find what actually works. There seem to be no room at all for more than one possible working solution for placement of towers. Reducing the game to a grind very quickly!

War in a Box is a basic tower defense game. The graphical style is pretty inspired -- everything looks like it's made out of cardboard and paper and the levels look like a child's playset. You can move the camera just about anywhere and there's also an option to see the game from a tower's perspective (watching it fire at enemy units). The art is definitely top notch.

On the flip side, the gameplay mechanics are not very sophisticated. The tower defense genre has dozens of titles that have innovative twists and interesting mechanics. This game is a bit lacking in that department. Towers are placed in a few fixed positions and have 3 levels of upgrades. Towers and upgrades are instant and there aren't any extra buttons to press. There are no end of level stats or bonuses for leftover money, and while upgraded towers do more damage I couldn't see numbers anywhere.

One mechanic of the game that is somewhat interesting is that each unit, tower, and bullet fired is modelled in the physics engine. This means that trees and destroyed units can block the trajectory of your tower's bullets, and sometimes units go flying off the screen when they are destroyed. It also adds some randomness, since some tower shots may be blocked and this throws off the timing for a wave.

All in all, though, the game is too simplistic for my taste. The art style is cool. But tower defense as a genre is a bit played out and this game adds nothing innovative to keep me interested.

This is a decent game with good physics.

+ Turret First Person View
+ Good level design
+ Tower attacks get blocked my obstacles like tree.

- You can place towers only on certain pre-decided spots.
- Too much restrictions, no freedom.
- Only a few "Good" combinations to place your towers.
- Very few towers
- Slow waves/levels (yeah, even on 3x Speed, the game was pretty slow to me)

I usually love TD's but this specific one is probably designed as a "CASUAL" game. It just felt like a lot of hand holding. You can't decide your own place to build a tower. There are pre-designated spots from which you must chose. Among those there is only a few good combinations to place towers, if you don't place the specific tower on the specific slot the developer inteded you to put, You will most likely lose the level.

It's a decent game to chillax, but NO-NO for a hardcore Tower Defense fan.

War in a Box: Paper Tanks
Rating: 6/10

Average tower defense game with nice graphics that represent as if you play with cut out board pieces. You can rotate this around and try different views like from inside a tower. But there is where all the 'key selling points' of this game end and a fairly generic game begins. You got waves, you can upgrade your towers, you have levels, it all scales up. Nothing really special.

Downside is the missed chance to do something nice with the game mechanics or animations because we are playing with paper. When a tank is destroyed, it disintegrates... why not unfold or disperse into paper pieces? Ballistics are nice round balls. Why not paper darts or crumpled papers? Why not let a tank burn to the ground? Why can't you destroy a tree that is in the way? Missed chances to make this game stand out a bit more.

Upgrading is also not mouse-frienly, and geared towards touch (where the origins lay I suppose). You have to click the unit, then a menu appears on the left side of the screen, you have to move the mouse and click the upgrade twice. RSI guaranteed.

In the end it is fun for a few round until you yearn again for a good round of OTTTD, Shad'O or Defense Grid.

sweet looking little tower defense game.

since its a niche product i'll only list the positive and negative things:

+ rather good graphics for a tower defense game.
+ you can zoom and move the camera, even watch the game from the inside of one of your towers.
+ detailed units and animations
+ possibility to change the gamespeed

● about 5 hours of playtime
● only singleplayer
● 5 different tower types
● 24 more or less different maps

- annoying music
- the achievements seem to be bugged. they randomly pop up when you close the game.
- small maps and very limited tower building locations
- the tower bulding options are a little sluggish, and i often had to click twice or more until a tower was build.
when youre in a hurry thats killing the fun.
- feels like playing a mobile game

all together its average.
if youre like me a fan of the good old warcraft 3 tower defense maps, you will be disappointed.

not sure if i should put a "yes" or "no", so please consider:


if you get this game below 2€ /$2, on sale/bundled: YES, its still good for a few hours of fun.

if you thought about buying it for the full price of 9,99: NO. theres not enough variety and content to satisfy this.

Very limited game play for a game that looks so amazing. For a simplistic idea of a cardboard box kids play area they sure put a lot into making this game look really really stunning. If this had more more to it, less retrictive placement of guns, control of route of tanks, Build AA along side cannons. There would be a little replay value. But there is not. Once you figure out the map win placemt there's no point in playing it again. Worth getting for the $2 sale but not full price unless they add some content.

Pretty simplistic tower defense game, where each level has a handful of predetermined locations where you are allowed to build your turrets. Your decisions/strategies on each map then basically just boil down to what turret to build on each spot and when/if to spend resources to upgrade them. No metagame stuff like skill trees or perks, like in some more advanced TD games.

All in all, besides the nice-looking papercraft artstyle and the fact that obstacles (trees) block turret line-of-sight, there's nothing really novel here -- gameplay and setting are similar to games like iBomber Defense and Toy Soldiers.

Veterans of the genre will likely be bored by the lack of depth / replay value / challenge, but it's a nice introduction to TD games for novices.

I am not From a English origin so i hope you people can skip trough a few spelling mistakes,

Well where do i start, I do not often write a revieuw on a game but i thouged this game needed it.

So i was quite curious what kind of game experience i would get from this since i never really play any tower defence games.
Nothing makes this game specteculair or different for what i have seen from other tower defence games.
Music is ok, Gameplay is fun for a few minutes then i want to play something else again A. Something they did wrong is give you the option to look troug hthe eyes of a turret, does it allow you to controll it? No, you can just look trough it. Which is a big dissapointment. It feld like watching a friend play your favorite game and you were not allowed to join in.
A typical game to pass the time. Artstyle is enjoyable, the paper and cardboard cutouts.

Overal i find this game a like or hate it. Fun to play for a few minutes but nothing fancy.

If i may recomend a tower defence game that is similair to this but a bit better, try Toy Soldiers. It is set in a WW1 theme and is hilarious to play and see.

The paper look gives the game a cute feel but don't underestimate this game. It is definitely worth the money while this 75% OFF is here. Why? While it is a fun game it's also limited with a few tower types and levels. Only a few hours of fun.. but the camera rotation option surely gives the game a plus..

This is a great choice for tower defense. Lets break it down.

Graphics-Awesome for this type of game, the paper idea is spot on, and also 3d, what more could you ask for? Everything from the turrets to enemies look great. The maps are well laid out as well.

Music-Skip the music not the best.

Levels-First 10 were fairly easy, but by 11 things got really tough, had to really think about my tatics. You are looking at about 5-10 hours of game time. Not bad for a budget title.

Turrets-5 to chose from, machine gun nest, anti-tank gun, flak gun, arty, telsa coil. 3 upgrades avaible as well. Cool thing with these, you can look through the turret in a first person view.

Gameplay-Some of the best in tower-def i've had so far. Can have some really intense moments that come down to seconds, had me on the edge of my seat many times. You really have to plan out to win, no cake walks here.

All in all a very fun game and well worth the money. Heck a deal right with 50% off. Buy it!

Difficulty progresses by each level, but not extremely, keeping it balanced.
You should buy it if you like games like BTD (Bloons Tower Defense).

To my suprise it isn't a bad game.

Its a TD game, and I would 9/10 times I see one I will say its not worth the price, but for a game I can play on the go while waiting for other things, It ain't too bad.

If you want a game that you can play on the go, Its worth it.

Very neat tower defense game. The whole game is paper-styled, so everything is made out of paper (duh). It is different and I like it, you will too probably. You have multiple kinds of towers, all useful in one way or another. You also have ton of different enemies, some air, some ground units. You have to think where to place what towers. Air units have their own path, most of the time shorter. Not all your turrets can attack air units. You must keep the "end" safe so less than 10 enemies would pass. You also have the ability to have a first person view from any turret. So in my opinion above average tower defense game.

Lil' Sucky Gameplay to go with the review.

Fantastic!

This is not your usual Tower Defense game. This is something much better :)

+ Nice and interactive 3D world
+ Smooth gameplay even on older systems
+ Turret View is great! (First-person mode so you can see from the point of view of the turret)
+ Physics
+ Good amount of levels

- Too little amount of places for turrets
- Can get repetitive

It's fun, it's cheap, it's brilliant!

Pretty fun little TD. Would have liked more towers and options. Very visually pleasing in a minimalist papercraft sort of way, but for 10 bucks, I might not go quite that far. If you see it for 50% or 25% off, go for it. Fun little time waster.

War in a Box: Paper Tanks is a plain vanilla TD game that feels rushed. It's like the developer had some good ideas that were hard to implement and when he got them working, he didn't do much with them. Like the tower views. That is all it is… One view from a chosen turret. No shooting or even turning the turret. It's just a camera view.

The game is okay, but it's basic to the point of not really wanting to play it again once you get the 3 stars and 100%. There are only 5 towers with 3 upgrade levels and 24 small maps. You can only build towers on predesignated platforms and there are not very many of them scattered throughout the small maps, so you must choose your towers wisely! Like only 5 - 7! Once you figure out the correct combonation of towers to use and placement, there is no challenge anymore. Also, once you place all of your towers and upgrade them, you just sit and watch the battle. There's nothing left to do...

It's also got one bad design choice IMO. The enemies don't explode or disappear from the track fast enough and this can cause unpredictable problems. Sometimes shots get blocked, making you lose the level and have to restart the mission over from the beginning. If you are going for 3 stars, you'll need to start over sometimes. It's not that bad and doesn't happen all the time, but when it does, it's frustrating.

Animations are stiff, but the enemy are supposed to be made out of paper, so it fits the game style I guess. The sounds are okay and fit the game well. It's not a bad or broken game. It's just very basic and at times, unpredictable. Hey it runs in the highest settings on both of my Mac's so I give it a huge plus for that alone! :-)

I "only" recommend this game to diehard TD fans looking for something new!!! Get it on sale like I did or you might regret it... There are so many better TD games out there for much LE$$!

Here are my 15" PowerBook Pro system specs: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.66 GHz, 4 MB system RAM, NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT with 256MB dedicated video RAM, running OS X version 10.6.8 (10K549), HSF+ Extended file system.

Lovely neat tower defence puzzle game. Animations could be smoother but still it's a quality sofware you may have pleasure with even if you don't usually like TD's.

Аккуратная и приятная головоломка жанра обороны башнями. Анимация могла бы быть более плавной, но все же это качественное программное обеспечение, которое может доставить удовольствие, даже если вы обычно не любите ОБ.
