What is Anomaly Defenders about?
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!
A beautiful TD game with the rare peculiarity that it is for friends of classic and friends of hectic TD games. Similar to many hectic TD games, it is important to access individual towers more often to activate special abilities (repair, shield, rage, etc. ). The big difference between Anomaly Defenders and most hectic TDs is that this can all be done during a pause in the game. Fans of hectic TDs simply ignore the pause button and fans of classic TDs (like me) can implement their tactics during a break. In the last third of the 24 maps you have to access a lot of the individual towers. If they are paralyzed not only by enemies but also by random EMP storms, the necessary and repetitive micromanagement somewhat inhibits the flow of the game. Fazit
