Anomaly Defenders is the closing installment of the Anomaly series. The original incarnation of the Tower Offense sub-genre had players controlling humans fighting alien invaders. Now, the tables have turned. The human counterattack is underway and the alien homeworld is under threat. Defend the planet from the human scum in the final battle of the series.
Anomaly Defenders is a fast-paced Tower Defense game where attacking human troops can damage and destroy your defenses. You have to react and counterattack enemies on the battlefield at all times. Each time you start a campaign, the unique tech-tree technologies can be tailored to your needs. Killing humans is easier due to 8 upgradable towers and special functions: repair your towers, make them go berserk, sacrifice them in explosions that are harmful to nasty humans, and use other tricks. This is the final battle against the humans. For the Hive, Commander!

Just hearing that this was a traditional tower defense game rather than one where you control the creeps was enough to set off my warning bells. And rightly so as this feels like a cheap cash in. Gameplay is just your standard tower defense which is the opposite of what made this series different. While not great at least the previous games had some semblance of a story and lotsread more of voice acting, where as this has barely any story or voice acting at all. Heck the ending (spoiler alert) is pretty much just a "You win!" screen and that's it. Overall it just feels halfhearted and cheap. Don't bother.

I personally thought the next step in this franchise would be something like having both creeps AND towers to manage at the same time, but that's not the case. this time you're the tower building aliens and it plays like any other tower defense game but with the addition of bosses and the return of the power system like repairing and stuff (though you no longer have a guy on theread more ground to move around), so if anything, don't expect the same experience as the first 2 anomaly games, expect a regular but well done tower defense that I would recommend highly if you get it on sale

If you're a fan of the Defense Grid series by Hidden Path, then 11-bit Studios' Anomaly Defenders should also be a game on your "to-get list" -- you'll feel right at home. The tech-tree and tower functions add an element of strategy/timing and increase replayability, while the environmental hazards (which can sway the tide of battle) add just a little extra suspense. Simply put,read more AD is a solid tower defense game with enjoyable maps, neat gameplay mechanics, pretty graphics, and a surprisingly good musical score.
