Or ‘Defence Grid’ if you’re a jolly good British citizen like myself. Tally ho, what what.
The work of Hidden Path entertainment (one of them being Mike Smith of Caster fame), Defense Grid: The Awakening takes the tower defense concept and simply moves it up to the next level. The graphics are very nice, the obligatory ‘storyline’ is there and many, MANY levels of awesome tower carnage await.
There’s a reason why it’s been getting rave reviews – it’s brilliant fun. Each level feels like it’s going to be nice and easy and slowly escalades into rather difficult situations in a race against time. Hours of play fly by before you realise it’s stupid o’clock in the morning and you’ve been blasting aliens for quite some time now.
