Cartoon Wars: Gunner has a much more arcade feel then the original. In it, you control not an army, but one stick. You must fight off waves of enemies single handedly using magic and whatever weapons you've aquired. Where in the original Cartoon Wars you had the swordsman, ninja, rifleman, mage, and others, in Gunner you could be any of them and more. Perhaps you feel like wielding a pistol? perhaps a bow and arrow? how about a rocket launcher? if you pay for it, it's yours!
