    {Intro}
    I just bought this game because it was #1 in the app store, and I decided to review it this week. Please leave comments about the review. Enjoy!

    {About}
    When you open Cartoon Wars it will take a few seconds to load, then it will bring up the main menu

    {Gameplay/Controls}
    In Cartoon Wars, you are the black and white tribe, fighting the color tribe, to save your people from slavery. You must upgrade your forces with gold you get from fighting and winning to get stronger, and as you get stronger, there are more and different enemies. To make things easier, you have a bow mounted on top of your castle to shoot the other tribe with. In the top right hand corner, it shows your mana. As the mana increases, you can send out more soldiers to fight. Each type of soldier takes a different amount of mana. To completely defeat your enemy, you must destroy their castle. (the soldiers destroy it by making it to the castle, then it automatically starts to shrink, until it’s gone.) So far this has stayed on the first page of my iPod. I think it’s going to stay that way. Cartoon Wars has a ton of potential, if the dev just made a few updates for it. At first, the game had 4 stars in the app store. Now it only has three. People are getting tired of the same thing. A few more different types of upgrades, and this game could be awesome!
    PS: Beware! Enemies will come in HORDES!!!

    {Graphics}
    The game’s graphics aren’t that good; they look like and old gaming console from the 20th century! I have seen better, but then again it’s kind of cool how the dev made it look like that. The black and white soldiers look better than the color, because they look like drawings.

    {Audio}
    There is no music in this game. There are just sound effects. And not very good ones at that! All I here is ding! and something like whoosh!

    {Value For Your Money}
    I kind of have mixed feelings about this subject. I like the game a lot, but I have only had it for a few days, and I haven’t gotten tired of it. I may in a week, but this game is really fun so I don’t think so. Like I said, the graphics and audio aren’t that good. Then again, 99 cents is pretty cheap, so I would probably say this is a deal.

    {Final Thoughts}
    The game has some real potential. If BLUE would listen to some feedback, and make an update, the game would stay #1 for a little while, but if they don’t it’s going to go down in the charts fast, and like I said in Gameplay, I really like how you can attack the enemies castle, instead of only them attacking you.

    -Pros-
    1. Fast paced
    2. Instead of just defending your castle, you try to take down the other tribe’s too.
    3. Online rankings

    -Cons-
    1. Not very good graphics
    2. Audio isn’t good

    {Ratings)
    Gameplay/Controls: 9/10 I like the campaign mode
    Graphics: 8/10 Not that good, looks like an old gaming console
    Audio: 7/10 No music, just two sounds
    Value For $$$: 9/10 A lot of upgrades, and only 99 cents
    Replay Value: 9/10 Always wanting to go up in the rankings

    {Overall: 8.5/10}

    Decent review. I've also started one on this game, so we'll see how our scores compare. Personally, I don't believe it deserves an 8.5, but I guess it's all preference.
