About This Game

All About Tower Offense vs. Tower Defense

Anomaly 2 is a sequel to the critically acclaimed Anomaly Warzone Earth. Maintaining the core elements of the original, Anomaly 2 adds new features to the single-player campaign and finally puts your skills to a test in a completely unique experience: the dynamic tower defense vs. tower offense multiplayer mode!

In the years following the invasion of Earth in 2018, the planet is overrun by alien machines. Humankind is on the verge of extinction. Banded together in huge convoys, they search the frozen tundra for food and supplies. Since the war, the roles have been reversed: now our species seems to be the Anomaly on a machine-controlled planet. Your convoy, Commander, is called Yukon.

Anomaly 2 takes the RTS tower-offense concept from Anomaly Warzone Earth to a new level. The core elements of the original – tactical planning and the on-field Commander to support troops in combat – are spiced up by a number of important new features.

Key Features:

  • Morph your troops into war mechs to discover the new face of strategy: each unit has a different mech form with various abilities to help you overcome specific combat situations.
  • Engage in a multiplayer experience unique to Anomaly 2: tower defense vs. tower offense. Play as the towers and destroy the humans or lead the humans to annihilate the alien towers.
  • Fight across a post-apocalyptic world in a new single-player campaign that offers a more intense strategy experience than the acclaimed original.
  • Carve your own path to victory and create your ultimate battle squad. With over million tactical combinations to build your squad, your options in combat are nearly endless.
  • Dive into a beautifully rendered world, thanks to the team’s upgraded and improved visual engine.
  • Experience alternative endings dependent upon your approach to enemy machines in the campaign.

A fantastic sequel to Warzone Earth. New units, new towers, new abilities and a very good single player campaign. Now your units can morph into alternate versions that suit different tactics and add a lot to gameplay. Well worth it!

I will put recommended by I do so with extreme care. Anomaly is a fun tower defense game where you're on the offense while playing a bit of defense with what you got. Anomaly follows a story line where machines have taken over and humanity is struggling to survive.

You play as a commander which has the ability to move about the map as he wishes. As the commander in the field, you can quickly change tactics or use a special ability at a whim. Upon getting hurt or shot, the commander regenerates his health. The units are not as fortunate and do not have this ability. This is where the commander steps in. To heal units (or to use any special ability), the commander has to put down a regenerative power up and units have to pass over it within a certain amount of time to heal. After a few seconds, the healing pad will disappear therefore proper placement is almost everything in the game. To acquire more power up supply, the units have to destroy machines as they leave stock behind. Other commander abilities include distraction (where a distraction is put down and targeted by the machines), EMP (where the machines are unable to attack for a period of time - certainly useful for larger opponents) and aim. Vice versa, being the machines your abilities are regeneration, berserk mode, taunt and kamikaze. I haven't had the time to properly explore these modes as there isn't much of an online presence within this game. During peak hours there are a few players playing but for the most part you'll be playing the one player campaign. Planning your attack is a key feature in this game. As the commander, you are able to direct your units which way to go. You may further your progress towards the "safe zone" in the game or you may go other routes which may lead to a bonus. Alternatively, killing more robot units will give you more stock for your power ups. This gives the player more flexibility and options in how to approach the game. Although extremely simplistic, a great idea for a game to be over and above immersive. They made the planning extremely easy to do (and easy to see the paths) and time stops when making your move. The units/vehicles themselves all each have differing abilities and 2 different forms. An assault hound for instance, can be a tank and be meant for long range battles where it's other (flame-throwing) form is meant to be in close quarters. This specific unit when in tank form fires a lot faster the more shots it takes. Other units can be used to immobilize enemies or provide shields to allies. Some units are meant for long range and deal quite a bit of damage but take a bit of time to fire again (and have smaller firing ranges). They too can switch to become close quarter fighters but each unit has it's time and place against certain opponents. Opponents can drastically change throughout the levels. You'll be fighting a nice small machine and start getting comfortable when this giant thing may come from no where. Some units fire all along a path and do consistent damage while some units need to be shot at a certain amount of times (and at a certain frequency) to evolve. There is this one shielded enemy that when fired upon quickly, will evolve into a very hard opponent. There are ways to circumvent these situations such as using units that shoot less frequently but deal more damage to not help the evolution process. What bugs me the most about the game though is the commanders movements. Especially if you are using the keyboard, there is no fluidity in the movement/animation and it feels like you can only maneuver in 9 directions.

The visuals are quite appealing but at times seem that could have been a bit better. There are some scenery issues where instead of having a smoke animation, it will just be plain. When your units do miss a shot or fire a rocket into an enemy that has already been destroyed, that missile keeps it's course and does eventually explode when coming into contact with something (so a positive feature). The sounds are pretty good and the voice acting is suitable to what the plot presents. Nothing super outstanding in this department but the basics are met. The user interface within the game is easy to navigate.

Overall, a decently good game that is worth a purchase on sale and only if you find this sort of genre interesting.


RATING : 7/10



ScreenShots :

What planning a route looks like. It's not always this simple as multiple choices become available later on in the game

Longer levels will have checkpoints available in between to make sure you don't have to start all over again

Transforming your units to mechs and back never gets old.
