There are tons of games like this...
But that shouldn't stop you from playing this one. There's really not a lot to say about it that isn't good, among the genre this game is rather fun. A cute casual game with aliens everywhere, where you set up your guns and blast away in the hopes that they don't reach your energy source and burn it out.
Simple enough, right?
It is, for awhile.
Almost 2 hours slipped away rather quickly, while I tried to set up my defenses and blast away at these adorable little jerks. There's a variety of weapons, roadblocks, and other knick-knacks that you can set up to keep them from getting at your coil. But somehow, eventually, they'll get there.
This game doesn't try to put on a pretense of being more than a casual game, and I could see it working across many platforms very easily and holding someone's attention. It's the type of game that can soak up hours of your life, but it's not so hard to get into that you can't kill time on the remainder of your lunch break with it. It's a lot of fun, and it's cheap! Pick it up.
Sounds fun, is there anything bad about it?
It could use a better soundtrack. Not that the soundtrack is bad, just that it's pretty bare. You'll grow tired of it quickly, but other than that, no, no complaints.
7.5 out of 10 - As a casual game it's one of the least frustrating I've played. Easy to get into, very hard to master. I would definitely recommend it if you're looking for something to pick up and play. The pacing is also quite nice, and the ability to speed things up is a great addition. Improve the soundtrack, and it could easily get bumped up to an 8.
