About This Game

First contact didn't go as planned, when aliens woke Murray Mendelson up from his afternoon nap. Pulling the trigger first has drawn Murray in to full scale war with these alien visitors, and they’ll stop at nothing to destroy him. Armed with his musket and inconsolable rage, Murray must defend his home against all odds. Why are the aliens only attacking this one house? Who knows?! Shoot first and ask questions later in this endless fast paced arcade shooter, and keep those pesky aliens off of Murray's perfectly manicured lawn!

Collect valuable alien orbs to upgrade your weaponry. Use ‘Cane Time’, ‘Infuriate’, and ‘Soundwave’ power-ups to gain the upper hand when all seems lost. The longer Murray holds the lawn, the stronger those aliens get. But there is plenty of firepower waiting for you to try out in The Shed.

So, lock and load…and Get Off My Lawn!

Mindless fun. Gets boring after a couple of hours. There is a steep jump in difficulty around level 10, which means you are forced to grind to be able to pass, which brings up the low rewar for winning. Grinding takes too long to make the fun last for hours. This brings up the microtransactions. The game needs microtransactions to be fun, which is a problem. Past level 10, you need these uprgades to survive more than a level, but you only get around 400-600 "orbs" per run and each upgrade is in the thousands. If this game wasn't so repetitive, I wouldn't mind it. This is why the microtransactions are forced (Not to mention the achievement where you have to buy something with real money!).

Overall, it is ok. Maybe 6-7/10. Even with everything said, it is a free game and you can't really complain about that. I would say to play it for a few hours when you are boredand delete it when you are done.

This is a fun little time wasting game with cool music and fun addicting gameplay. Play as a old man who shoots down waves of aliens to get of his lawn with a few weapons.

Pros:
-Simple gameplay
-Addicting to play
-Cool music
-Cute graphics

Cons:
-Can get repetitive
-Does have a standard Micro-transaction shop for stuff but this is optional

This is a fun little game, but it acts mostly like a game for an iPhone or Android. It's a simple concept but there's enough variation in the shop and the types of enemies that make you want to play this awhile. Now I'm not a huge fan of endless games (Such as Temple Run or Turbo Pug) but I thought this a spin on the concept of endless games.

The major complaint would be the pay to win method... and by that I mean the ONLY method to get a good distance into the game. You'll be playing and suddenly the difficulty level shoots up into the sky and you usually lose shortly after. There is a play to win method, but it's a bit of grinding and the shop isn't too great, all the good stuff exists when you pay real money. And I do believe there's an achievement for paying with real money to get a weapon... like really?

Overall, I still recommend this little game. It'll provide a couple hours at most of entertainment before it becomes dull.

So many people complaining about this game...
I don't get it.

It's free. You can play it, if You enjoy it.
Do you have to? No.

It's not pay to win. You can earn all the upgrades by playing.
"What? A game I have to play to be able to get further? Scandalous!"

And yes, You can spend money in the game to get orbs quicker.
Do You have to? No.

But let's be honest: If You play a game and enjoy a game, why not pay for it?

And yes, the game might be quite repetitive, but the difficulty increases with every level - and I guess the challenge is to be able to cut through even the thickest hordes withouth breaking a sweat.

I like a challenge.
I like the game.
And yes, I payed some money to support the developers and show them, I like the game.
Did I have to? Again: No.

A fun little time-waster that unfortunately wraps itself in blatant monetization; the game has a 'screw you' point at which the difficulty abruptly spikes to insurmountable and literally impossible odds (waves upon waves of armored enemies) without using the for-pay powerups, or grinding through multiple lower-level runs just for enough 'orbs' to buy one. Oh, and of course the powerups are consumables.

Started out feeling fun, but the sweatshop-or-pay quickly came through.
GET OFF MY HARD DRIVE!

I was hoping for a free game to waste some time, hopefully get some achievments, maybe get another 100% game. I was very, very let down.

Worst part of the game, one of the "achievments" is to spend real money on orbs for the game, which seems idiotic. I'd rather just pay money for a real game. The least amount of money you can pay is a dollar, which isn't a lot, but this ENTIRE GAME isn't even worth a dollar. There are vastly superior flash games you can play for free on Kongregate. The item really worth buying in the game is 2 bucks, and seriously, this game is not worth two bucks. Also, the game is built to REQUIRE spending money in order to do well. It's just a huge grind. Pace is very very slow unless you spend money.

The game itself is incredibly simple. Only one level, and it's just waves of enemies coming at you, and you press the space bar at them. No joke. It just keeps going, and you're supposed to do this over and over and over, in hopes of unlocking more stuff, so you can press the space bar button even more times before dying.

There's also very little to the upgrade system. Every upgrade costs a LOT of in-game cash to get. There are only 3 guns, and 4 levels to each gun. You can also make your porch be able to take more hits (get more lives). Then there are three items to use in game (like freezing time). Considering how long it takes to get in-game cash, there is no way you would want to spend that much on a stupid one time use item. Very pointless system indeed.

Cute and fairly fun, but you earn orbs painfully slowly. There's an option to buy them, but that just tells me where the developers plan to make their money.

I would have been willing to pay a couple bucks for this game right off the bat and then get orbs at a decent rate; this freemium ♥♥♥♥ doesn't belong on my Steam account.

A free-to-play game with microtransactions that seems to have been ported from a mobile game. All the reviews are false and I wouldn't be amazed if mine got removed. The game is hideously boring, you just use A+D+Spacebar, then from time to time you use your power-ups which you'll run out of soon enough. The microtransactions are horrible, and you'll have to play a LOT to earn enough currency to buy any upgrades for you weapon. I just installed it for the cards which I can only hope will drop.
EDIT: Cards do not drop at all.

>I'd give it a 1/10(I really can't be bothered, 1 just because the game runs and it's SOMETHING)
>Pros: Free to move left and right and shoot, it starts
>Cons: Belongs to mobile games section and should never have been ported, microtransactions, inability to purchase any upgrades whatsoever with normal currency income, boring as Hell(would prefer Bad Rats to this), Achievements(YES, because upon uninstallation of the game you'll have a lower percentage of total achievements because you will never bother to play this for them!)

A simple game. Free. Aliens are attempting to abduct you. You want them off your lawn. Use your gun to give them a good ol' Joe Biden goodbye.

Why creatures capable of teleportation and space travel would mindlessly hurl themselves at you from the far side of your lawn is beyond me.

If there is intelligent life out there watching us, this is why they stay away.
