Cogs and Combat

Players in ToonTown can choose to either play as a dog, duck, cat, rabbit, mouse, pig, horse, monkey or bear. From here the player is introduced into the ToonTown Online world and their first Cog battle. There are four different types of Cogs; Bossbots, Cashbots, Sellbots and Lawbots. Each of these Cogs have a headquarters and attacks based on their Cog type. Battles with Cogs can be up to 4v4, which encourages party play.

Battles are won by reducing the health of Cogs through various gags and jokes (since Cogs can't take a joke) The player loses if their laff (health points) reaches zero.

ToonTown Activities

There are also plenty of other activities that players can do in ToonTown to take a break from saving the world from evil Cogs. Players are encouraged to take part in these activities through various rewards including jellybeans, laff points and trophies.

Toons can participate in Trolley games, mini-golf, fishing, party hosting, go kart racing and gardening.

Trolley games form the biggest non-combat activities in ToonTown, these games are mini arcade style games that allow players to quickly generate jellybeans (the currency of ToonTown Online).
