You all know I’m a casual gamer. I’m so casual, I’ve never even played Desktop Tower Defense, even though many of you have. If you like that kind of game, you’ll like Defense Grid. It was just released today on Steam and Direct2Drive. You see, I know all about this game, because I have an inside track. The CEO of Hidden Path Entertainment (the game company that created this game) just happens to be my next-door neighbor, Jeff. I’ve never played any type of Tower Defense game at all, even though it’s apparently its own genre! There’s like 80 or so of these around now. So today, we have the newest addition to the crew, Defense Grid. It’s a strategy game, mixed in with a puzzle game, as well.
Defense Grid: The Awakening is a strategy game where players place defense fortifications (towers) to stop invading aliens from stealing power cores from their bases. It is up to the player to select the towers, placement, and timing to best protect the base. This mix of strategy and puzzle gameplay is very fun and engaging.
Defense Grid promises to combine clever mechanics and great visuals with a ton of replay value, at a bargin bin price. If you’re a fan of tower defense games, strategy games, or just hate aliens, make sure you grab this game as soon as possible.
I’m not sure how well I did at playing the game, but I had a lot of fun. I am already sucked into Defense Grid. I’m sure I’ll see you on the leaderboard.
