FPS' on the iphone can be problomatic. No matter how well they're made, a bad control scheme can be a death sentence. That's kind of Toonwarz in a nutshell. Either playing through the single player campaign or the multiplayer, your enjoyment of this title depends on whether or not you can come to grips with the controls.

There are two schemes available. Both technically use twin control sticks, it's just the default scheme hides the look stick and adds the shoot and jump button around it. In the first scheme, it's too easy to fire you gun when looking around, and with the second scheme, tapping the middle of the screen to shoot doesn't always register. There are plenty of weapons and the levels are varied with different objectives, but the controls hamper these positives.

The 3D world is well designed and the enemies are amusing. The sound is decent and the game allows you to use your ipod as you're gunning down soldiers. The missions are lengthy and the multiplayer should keep you amused for a while.

Toonwarz would be a great addition to the iphone FPS genre if more thought had been put into the control schemes. As it stands, if you love your FPS' you might love this game, but until an update is released, be weary.
