Captain ToonHead vs the Punks from Outer Space was released on November 11, 2011 by Teravision Games. The game was developed by Teravision Games. Ever wanted to beat a T-Rex up with a chancla, while building powerful towers that shoot piñatas, hot sauce and heat-seeking fireworks? Captain ToonHead is the VR tower defense game of your cartooniest dreams.

This is not your diorama-style VR tower defense. This time you’re going to have to move all over the map, hammer away to upgrade your towers, throw over-powered chanclas recklessly and shoot electric beams from weaponized pizza at your enemies. Fight from the front lines!

After the whole squad sent by the World Treaty for Freedom (WTF) got fried by a burrito-related explosion, it’s on Elliott Salazar, the cartoon-obsessed facility technician and the only survivor, to save Earth. There’s a new captain onboard: Captain ToonHead!

Take manual control of a tower to project lethal beams of hot sauce from your hands, ignite infinite heat-seeking fireworks, irresponsibly spray a snowball machine gun, shoot rays from electrified pizza slices or unleash a piñata blitz over your enemies.

You’re going to do a lot of shooting, that’s for sure, but shooting alone will not defeat the waves of Cyberchickens, punks and Terra-sharks. You’re going to have to combine those Piñata towers and chancla throws in a very strategic way if you want to save more Enercubes and destroy the EarthRadicator-1000.

This game requires VR equipment. It supports the Valve Index, HTC Vive and the Oculus Rift. The game is playable both seated or standing. The action is al first person: your not just watching from above in this one, you are on the ground right in the action. You also get to ride on and control the turrets!

The controls are not complicated and are easy to learn. Having played Orcs Must Die I can see the influence in a tongue in cheek way. The game looks childish and yet fun. Well it most definitely is childish. The game starts of easy but it quickly gets more challenging.
