Bunny Flags allows up to three profiles to be made at a time, allowing multiple people to play. When you start up a profile for the first time, enter a username, or use the default name White Rabbit. Once you made up your profile, the next screen will take you to the World Map.
While viewing the World Map, you can view your profile’s stats at the top-left hand corner of the screen. You can see your profile name, your level, the amount of experience you have, and your game progress.
When you select a location on the World Map to begin playing, you will be given the option of choosing a difficulty level. You can choose either Casual, Normal, Hard, or Challenge.
Use the WASD keys to control, and the mouse to fire.
Defend your base from the enemy, named the Handies. To assist you, you can build towers that can attack enemies within range. Killing enemies in this fashion will earn you money.
At the top of the screen, you can view your health bar. Avoid having this bar decrease entirely to avoid losing the game.
Below the health bar is a “rage” bar. The rage bar gets filled up as you hit enemies. Once the rage bar is full, you can temporarily deal out extra damage.
At the top-right hand corner of the screen, you can view the waves that are upcoming, including the types and amounts of enemies. You can also pause and bring on additional waves as you wish.
After you complete the level, you will be presented with a summary page that will list some useful statistics based on your performance. It will list out the amount of damage you have taken, the number of flags you have saved out of the total number of flags, the rank you have achieved, and any bonus awards you have received.
The next page will take you to the Talent Tree, which can also be accessed from the World Map. On this Talent Tree, you can see three different “trees” that display different skills. Each tree has a different specialty. They are labeled Engineer, Commando, and Destroyer. Place your mouse cursor over a symbol to see what skill you can improve if you upgrade. You will be given talent points for completing missions. These talent points can be spent on upgrades to the Talent Tree.
A link to a game guide and additional tips can be found in-game. One useful tip that will be useful to you immediately is that you can reset the flag if the enemy manages to capture your flag. Simply kill the enemy, then touch the flag to reset the flag back to its original position.
Bunny Flags scores a 10/10 for its high level of entertainment. It is also packed with a good number of levels, along with three different ways of upgrading. The use of active defense along with tower defense, always a great combination, further added to this game’s appeal.
