This game exceeds expectations. Tons of fun and a lot more challenging than I thought it would be. The cutesy cartoony design totally fooled me. Haha. Very addictive too.

A very well done PvZ variant/clone. Fun characters and descriptions, fantastic art, and can get quite challenging!

Good points on music and graphism, for a strategy challenge, not that easy on top of the Veteran Mode that makes this game hard. If the first levels are quite cool, the leveling offers new challenges and interactive action with the Laser and the money earning system.

A really cool tower defense in my opinion.

6/10 I'm recommending this, but barely. While it is creative and somewhat fun, there's far less emphasis on strategy than in most tower defense games. There are many times when the determining factor on whether you beat a mission is almost purely luck. You might have to play the same map several times, until you get lucky in the way things turn out.

The original version of my review made for the devs http://www.steamcontests.com/review-beware-planet-earth/


This game is a lot similar to Plants Vs zombies in a lot of ways
The "resources gathering " And the typical " CRAZY NEIGHBOR" who keeps giving you Tips and Weapons and whatever
Amazing texture,graphics and soundtracks with good strategy system
The game totally bangs the 9.99$ price : ) its worth it But you can also download the free demon to test it

with a good strategy system
And dont fall for the rumors " THE GAME IS TOO EASY "
Try Veteran mode ( you can enable it once you start the game )
it brings out the true challenge in the game

and of-course the game has its own Bonus levels + challenges and they are really confusing and Fun to play but you can pick up on them after a while and its really fun " said it before "

Cant really say i understand the plot havent finished the game yet
Aliens comes to steal your cows ... interesting


What i love most about this game that its not your typical TD game " Build and then relax "
You need to stay active to collect resources and use the XXXXXXX ( no spoilers ) To attack enemies whenever you want or disable a certain ability that they have

Like i said full review i made for the Devs http://www.steamcontests.com/review-beware-planet-earth/

To me, it's hard to make a 2D Cartoony style like this entertaining, and honestly I laughed a lot as I discovered the cows along the seasons, the aliens' animations, and of course, Barney ! This toilets cabin makes him so alive, and yet we never see the guy ! Now, imagine that all the 'towers' you put in the fields are alive too... Man, this ambiance is soooo fun ! It's actually a part of the machine, but it's also its eyes. It's a vent, but it's also its mouth. Just love the design of these characters/machines ! Mobs have suits, costumes, cohesive animations, and their abilities are related to their appearance. You could guess what it can or cannot do by just looking at them. It's very pleasant and made me feel like I was watching a good old cartoon from Tex Avery/Hanna Barbera. So alive !

Then came the game... I really don't like Tower Defense game type. BPE is the first one I DO want to complete ! God, I felt entertained all time long ! The first levels were clearly designed as tutorials. That's why all the people who got used to play TDs may be bored, but I think their experience will allow them to complete these levels very fast, to finally get to...

... THE ZAPPER !

Here is how you can turn a simple TD into a frenetic game experience : developpers managed to give you this intense feeling of being overwhelmed, without simply adding mobs, and mobs, and a new wave of mobs... The ZAPPER ! They also played on mobs' resistance, and finally managed to balance mobs' speed, defense, zapper's power, machines' utility and player's actions so that you have a lot of things to setup, manage and use... but in a very effective way ! Everything is damn simple to understand and use, and provides a lot of fun ! Don't... forget... to use... the ZAPPER ! It's your best ally all game long !

And finally, a new dimension came to my attention: mobs' transformations ! You think you killed it, it turns into something else ! Hard Rockers turn into "Berserk Hard Rockers", Zombies turn into graves, where new smaller zombies emerge, ... but I won't spoil everything ^_^ I found these game mechanics very inventive !

A lot of TDs should take example on this game. It's simple, yet effective and terribly addictive, fun and easy to play, and includes a very well balanced challenge.

I should have given feedback on the 'charismatic' fields, or on the growing number of aliens' spawn points as you progress in the game, or maybe on the evolutive environment (mushrooms and their spores, ice forming on your machines during winter and the zapper's utility at this moment of the game,...), and maybe I should have told you about the bosses, the drill, the gears or the cow bell... but I really have nothing to say about it, because everything was part of the fun, and very well thought !

Play this game, it really worths its price !
