Firstly, I would like to mention that I personally enjoy the Anomaly Series and I would definitely recommend it to my friends. Anomaly Korea is a Tower Offense game, instead of the traditional Tower Defence games. This makes the Anomaly Franchise stand out of other games.

With that said, the original intention of creating Anomaly Korea is to be played on mobile devices, rather than on a PC. As this is a game meant for mobile devices, it is pretty much the same as the gameplay style of the original Anomaly: Warzone Earth, just that you would realise that there are no keyboard shortcuts, making it unfriendly for PC gaming.

For PC gaming, my recommendation would be to get Anomaly: Warzone Earth or Anomaly 2, instead of Anomaly Korea as I find those meant for PC gaming more enjoyable and with keyboard shortcuts, making the overall gameplay more convenient rather than having to use the mouse all the time. Unless you are a hard-core fan of the Anomaly Series, don’t get this game and save up the money for Anomaly: Warzone Earth or Anomaly 2 for a better gameplay experience.

Tower Offense?

If you like the basic vibe of a tower defense game, get Anomaly Korea. It's a great franchise that reinvents an established formula in a very engaging way. I love the strategy and accuracy of keeping your convoy going, and the visuals are top notch. If I have any complaint it would be that the 12 story missions aren't enough. You could blow through this game in a day if you really try.

What's Hot:
Builds off the successful formula while adding a fresh perspective to tower defense, planning routes ahead of time with the tactical map, plenty of explosions and pretty scenery, Art of War bonus stages.

What's Not:
Plays exactly like its predecessor, only 12 missions.

Even if you never heard or saw this game before, you'd immediately recognize it as a smartphone port; massive text, huge onscreen buttons for commands, clicking the screen to continue narration, etc.

The Good:
- Overall, I like some of the controls of this game a little better than Anamoly: Warzone Earth due to the lack of a commander running around.
- It basically is another Anomaly game. Just not quite as polished or detailed as the main game, Warzone Earth.
- Decent graphics for what it is.

The Eh:
- Massive text fonts.
- Voices and delivery are OK.
- Campaign is short. 2.25hrs for me. (I had "enough" though.)

The Bad:
- I would much rather right-click on the map for selecting abilities and designating their locations.
- Right-click doesn't cancel Ability placement on the map (when I'd select an Ability button, but then want to cancel it--I'd mistakenly place it on the map)
- Moving the navigation map around (by dragging it) would sometimes make changes to your turn selections if you dragged it from a place too close to an intersection. More of a nuissance.

Summary: If you like Anomaly: Warzone Earth, this is more of that. Just not quite as nice. 6 out of 10.

It's a TD game, but you are the attacker.

Very fun game where you are a tower attacker instead of a tower defence. It has good graphics and vehicles at your control. Overall I had a plesent time playing this game. A complaint is that it is too short. It can also be abit challenging at times as you trial and error which units is best for a certain situation. I give this game a 7.5/10!

Don't get me wrong. The Anomaly Series is great. This is just one lazy mobile port. No keyboard shortcuts unlike the original game and somehow the story is somewhat lacking.

Also, I don't know if it happens to others but this game randomly gives me BSOD the moment I finish a mission.

It's good I got this for free. Don't waste your precious dollars. Get Anomaly Warzone Earth or Anomaly 2 instead.

If you liked the original Anomaly (Which I loved), chances are you'll enjoy this. It bares no real differences besides the fact that this is a ♥♥♥♥♥♥ mobile port where alt-tabbing will lead to certain doom. If you've never played the original Anomaly I'd suggest skipping this, but if you're adamant, let me tell you what you have in store for you.

This is a "tower-offense" game, the inverse of the usual tower defense. It's a short game, but there is a splendid variety of units for you to bring into battle, and towers for the enemy to set up. You will take on several story-based missions that serve as kind of a sequel to the original Anomaly (So if you've never played that, you'll have no idea what's going on here). The game challenges you in different ways such as preventing you from calling in more units, stopping you from acquiring more powerups (Very important tools you can use to give your units the edge in battle.), giving you a time limit, and etc.

The story isn't as in-depth (Nor is it necessary to experience before moving on to Anomaly 2), about every unit is recycled from the original, there are NO graphics options to speak of, nor any audio quality options.

It's a very unique concept but also much better done in the original Anomaly game rather than this crappy mobile port. It's ok, but really not a must-play unless you're head over heels in love with this series. I'll give this a 7/10. It's ok, it's not bad, but doesn't really live up to the name the original Anomaly made for itself. This PC port was clearly just made as a grab for money as the port itself has no effort put into it, and because of that, I cannot recommend you picking this up on PC.

I have played all but two of the Anomaly games, these tower defence/rts games are great really good art style decent story and fun game play, the unit types and upgrade system keep it fresh and i like the challenge of overcoming the ai on the harder difficulties. I think the Anomaly games are worth their price they are frequently in humble bundles and steam sales. If your looking for a cheap fun game pick it up.

Anomaly Korea provides an experience similar to the first Anomaly and Anomaly 2. It's a full package, with HD graphics and the exact same gameplay as the previous ones. It's also fairly lenghty, with 12 missions, ranging from easy to moderately difficult and there are a couple of new towers to keep you occupied as well. It's still a refreshing take on the tower defense genre.

Unlike the other Anomaly games there's no commander to control this time, though. You'll only control the vehicles. It actually works better and keeps you focused on taking the correct route. Things can get pretty hectic after all and it's good to be able to see what's happening without having to worry about your commander all the time.

Korea is another solid entry in the Anomaly franchise. If you liked the previous ones you'll like this one for sure.

[Rating: 76/100]

Anomaly Korea is a standalone sequel/expansion to Anomaly: Warzone Earth that serves to expand on the universe/mechanics a little bit. It is a reverse-tower defense game (Anti-tower defense? Tower attack? Is there a good term for these?), where you control a series of up to 6 units which are moving through a hostile field of towers, attempting to take out the towers and make it to your destination. To assist in this, you have a number of abilities (heal, cloak, etc) which can give your units a bit more of an advantage. Through each mission you're graded on a number of different variables (destruction, speed, losses), allowing you to "medal" in a number of different ways.

It's a fun game, if kinda short. It's literally just more Anomaly: Warzone Earth, so if you enjoyed that, odds are you'll enjoy this. Achievements have been bugged on it and won't unlock correctly for MONTHS, but it sounds like they finally got fixed a few days ago, so there shouldn't be any problems. So yeah - good little fun, but only in the 3-4 hour range.

It's a real simple port from mobile to PC, there's a few new units and abilities, cool to go through but it's still a basic mobile game, great to have if you like the series though.

Anomaly Korea - as the other entries in Anomaly series is a reverse tower defence game, where you are attacking the enemy defence. As I said in previous Anomaly: Warzone Earth review, the idea is quite enticing, however in the end it's too repetitive. Piotr Musial does a fine work in the music department. It is also worth mentioning that Anomaly Korea is more suited to tablet computers and smartphones with touch controls.

The game has also only one video setting to adjust and it will run fullscreen. I would not recommend purchasing Anomaly Korea for your PC. However, if the game looks interesting and the idea of tower attacking entices you - you might like Anomaly: Warzone Earth on steam or Anomaly: Mobile Campaign on smartphones - and I think the game series is better suited on-the-go so Mobile Campaign would be my choice.

Overall the series has potential but I find it very average and not motivating to play. It has some good ideas but I'd say most people would find the game dull in short time. In small doses it's not that bad - however with world full of games, there are probably better ones to spend your time with.

It's a decent followup to the first game, but doesn't really bring anything new to the table. I only recommend if you really want some more of the same.

A tower defense, wher you take over the role of the attacker.
Anomaly Korea is port of a tablet game and so are the controls. It feels a bit uncomfortable to navigate through the game.
The rest of the gameplay is well adapted for the computer, though.

It is a pretty short game with 12 campaign missions, each lasting for about ten minutes in average.
You can invest a large amount of time, trying to get the gold medals on hard, and try to beat "Art of War Trials", which are unlocked throughout the game.

In the end, fun little game to kill some time.
4 out of 10 points for this one.
