    Cartoon Wars

    Picture 4 Cost: $0.99

    The cheapest game of the list, Cartoon Wars is one wild ride. It is a game of tribal warfare (black and white cartoons vs. color cartoons) and you play on the side of black and white. Create units to attack and conquer the color cartoon's castles. With 30 units in total and 16 upgrades for each unit available too, getting through this game will take awhile. It is more action/real time strategy than anything else plus pure fun. The graphics are quirky and fit well with the overall mood of the game. Yeah, it is worth that whole dollar that they want you to spend.
