Cannon Brawl – Real time strategy + Worms

Cannon Brawl looks familiar at first glance. When you see the game standing still, it has a distinct similarity to the classic turn-based strategy game Worms. The truth is, it has some similarities in play, too, but – when you see it in motion – you realize how much of its own game Cannon Brawl promsies to be. Just watch the trailer, embedded above, of a multiplayer game of Cannon Brawl in action and you’ll see the kind of controlled chaos that it promises. Cannon Brawl is real time, as opposed to the game that it takes so much of its inspiration from, and takes additional cues from the real time strategy genre, where you are constructing buildings, managing resources, and trying to move about the map to adjust your aim all while trying to make sure that your base doesn’t get destroyed. Based on the videos of Cannon Brawl that I’ve seen, it certainly looks like it’s going to be a blast (heh, pun) to play. During the game, you have to expand your area of control, allowing you to get closer to your enemy’s base, capture gold mines, and upgrade your units. Cannon Brawl also has the promise of approximately 20 campaign missions, one-on-one local multiplayer, and networked multiplayer. Cannon Brawl has been in development for over a year now (It was originally called Dstroyd) and is still months from release.
