Great Little War Game
I liked this game
After reading all of the bad reviews I was reluctant to try this game. I am glad that I did.
I will admit that this game desperately needs a tutorial. Reading the comments in the forums before you play is essential.
I thought the game was great fun, relaxed yet challenging. Adorable graphics and sound.
There is a lot of trial and error, but I enjoyed figuring out how to beat the levels. This is a really cute and enjoyable game. You just need to stick with it until you have the basics figured out. After that it is a great game. Give it a try!

its not that hard
This is easy enough to figure out. A tutorial may be helpful, but its pretty simple for the first few rounds.
1: you can move, then shoot. so get into a good position and if you hit them first, you do 75% damage, they return 19%. If they fire first they get 75% and you do 19%.
2: your sniper shoots farther and usually 1 shot 1 kill...kinda makes sense.
3: base capture is not putting guys on the spawn marker, but next to the base and click on your engineer, then the base, and he looks like he is doing a magician act.
So the graphics aren't great. there is no tutorial. its not THAT hard to figure out. The game gets harder and more complicated as you go. I just didn't find it as fun as a defense game or as fast paced as a shooter and it just didn't inspire me. sorry devs. Its a good idea and there are people who may enjoy this. Build on the concept and you will have a winner in the future.

A tutorial might help
The idea behind this game is good, but I have got stuck as to how to do things because there is no help or tutorial. You are basically left to the game itself. The basic move and shoot is fairly easy to work out, but I am struggling to work out how to take over base have tried everything and obviously missing something.
What a pity as this is a welcome break from HOG as I am not a fan of those.

Very poor execution
I only played the trial version, however, it was horrid. You don't have a chance against the enemy. You take 75% damage for every shot they land, and they only take 19% damage from every shot you land. You are also out gunned by 50%. You get four men that actually engage, they get eight. You lose after two moves in the first level.

Not So Great
NO instruction (tutorial), Just kinda` grope your way along & click til U find out the Gameplay Mechanics.
Unusually HARD progression... I quit before end of 3rd battle, & it took me 3/4 of the Demo to get there.
Graphics & Sound Good, Cute Storyline
**Mom & Dad check before Kiddies** Dunno if cussing upon troop deaths, or if words just "close" (AND there's killin'.. YouKnow, like War:))
Thanks to BFG for keep trying to find us a little battle game... Just keep lookin` :)

Can't get too far
The game idea is great and it's pretty easy to figure out how to play even without instructions. The sound effects are a little annoying and it seems you can get to about level three then run into unfair odds. Pretty hard to get by the computer. They throw way more units at you than you can acquire and seem to eary better money??

Bad Little War Game
What makes this game so awful is that there are no instructions, they don't instruct you or assist you on the moves your troops can make or their range, making it impossible to strategize because almost every move is a guess. And of course you can only "undo" the last move you made (useless, might as well not be able to "undo" at all) and your moves are extremely restricted.
So its a strategy game that makes it impossible to strategize, unless you play the same level over and over and over (and over) until you figure the rules out on your own.
Great concept, poorly executed. Two thumbs down. What a shame!

garbage pure garbage
does not give you any instructios at all could not even pass the 2nd level because it does not tell you how to do it.

How do you play this game?
This game really needs a tutorial. I downloaded the trial version and deleted it after 5 minutes. For the life of me I couldn't figure out how to do anything with it. I'm sticking with "Toy Defense" for my war game.

Don't waste your time
Downloaded this only to see if it was as bad as the reviews say. It is! Played for 9 minutes before I got so frustrated with the graphic quality and lack of instructions that I gave up and deleted it.
