Not your typical tower defense game, the first difference you will notice in Cartoon Defense: Space Wars is that you are not limited to predetermined grids to place your towers on. Rather, the game takes on an open concept where you can place your towers anywhere on the playing field as long as it is within the confines of a certain radius.

In Cartoon Defense: Space Wars, towers are separated into two types, namely the miners and the attackers. Of course, as per the name suggests, these two types of towers either mine resources for players to build even more towers, or attack the enemy squads. Of course, consecutive upgrades enhance these abilities.

In this case, Cartoon Defense: Space Wars sets itself apart from other games of the same genre as players will need to strategize on which is the exact ideal spot for planting their crafts instead of flooding the entire map with blasters. Players have to take into consideration where the hordes of enemies are coming from as well as the positioning of the raw materials. While it does help that the various turrets will spin themselves so as to angle themselves towards the enemy forces, much planning is still needed for optimal warfare.

A free app, Cartoon Defense: Space Wars definitely gets my thumbs up.
