Anomaly: Warzone Earth, a fast-paced tower offense, is available now on GOG.com for $9.99, with the soundtrack, avatars, artworks, and more all included for free.
In the near future, something has landed in Baghdad and Tokyo. Something alien, something protected by force fields, something hostile towards the human race--an Anomaly that needs to be eradicated. That’s when you, commander of the elite 14th Platoon, come into play. With a limited number of units and scarce resources, you need to investigate, gather information, take down enemy fortifications district by district, and finally neutralize any and all the threats that exist within the anomalies’ borders. You cannot control your units directly, rather, you set the path for the convoy, drop power-ups, repair damages, and react quickly to the rapidly changing situation on the battlefield. Some routes are safe, some rich in minerals (war is expensive) and you’ll need to find balance, sometimes you’ll have to abandon your mates and gather supplies, and sometimes click frantically in the heat of the battle--either way, it’s the art of balance that will keep you alive and kicking hard.
Anomaly: Warzone Earth sports a top-down 3D view of the battlefield, with surprising amount of details, like dust storms, abandoned cars, and destroyed city streets. What’s best is that even though Anomaly is a 2011 game, it will not put too much strain on your hardware, and that speaks highly of 11BitStudios programming expertise. Controls are as simple as you can get: a two-button mouse (or a touchpad) are enough to blast the alien invasion back to spacehole they crawled from, but learn some hotkeys.
Anomaly: Warzone Earth is not a simple role-switching tower defense, but a state-of-the-art and invigorately fun take on battle strategy genre, for only $9.99 on GOG.com
