Cute Toy Solder style characters.

Don the Blue or the Grey and get ready for Cannon Defense: American Civil War. Defend your outpost against waves of oncoming soldiers in this challenging and unique defense game.

Rebel Yell
The South has seceded from the Union, and The War Between the States is raging. You're in charge of a high-tech (for the 1860s, that is) fast-loading cannon. Your job is to take out the enemy as they charge Pickett-style over the hills.

The action is spread over five locations: The Mine, Cross Keys, the Harbor, and Fort Sumter. You'll be aiming your cannon at soldiers, other cannons, cavalry*, and boats. With the chaos you'll cause, you just might save the day.

Cannon Defense: American Civil War is an unusual tower defense game that features a front-view, 3D perspective. Roll your cannon from left to right, forward and back as you aim and mow down the enemy. Cannon Defense: American Civil War uses ragdoll physics and has plenty of explosions. Choose to play as the Union or the Confederacy.

Keep your aim steady and see if the South Shall Rise Again or if the Union Shall Be Preserved.

This is insanity

Please don't spend one second fixing the gameplay so that it actually works, but thank GOD you got rid of that flag that actually flew back then. And so quickly too ! Hope you didn't break your back bending over so fast to be PC. I think you set a record !!
But anyway, this game has good cannon movement, blasts, bodies flying and sound. Not at the same time though. That would just be asking too much.

Honestly, just wanted to check the flag censorship

Oddly, the no forbidden Confederate battle flag still, appears but under the title of France.

That aside the game is unplayable. Attempting to elevate the gun barrel also raises the camera in the"Z" axis meaning you end up looking down at the top off the cannon and can't see any targets.

Still, game shows some promise of the execution where cleaned up.
