Hey all, quick little note for ya today out there in Internet Land. Last year, Steam and iOS-types had a chance to flip up the tower defense trope with Anomaly: Warzone Earth, the first game from 11 bit Studios which put you in the shoes of the tower offenders rather than an omnipotent overseer who carefully placed towers where he was allowed to place them. It was a lot of fun and had some great ideas, and now it seems as if it’s landed on Xbox Live.
This XBLA version might be up your alley if you loved what was in the original game and wanted just a bit more; it’s launching with a series of six “Tactical Trials” that, apart from not coming out for Steam, will allow people to be more tacti-cool with their assault approaches. It’s launching for 800 points, which seems like a good buy-in to me. If my Xbox wasn’t a useless, non-functional brick, I’d toss up a review for the port…but alas.
Give the demo a run-through, and if you’ve picked up the full game what do you think of it so far on the 360? Drop a line in the comments below. There’s an official “launch” trailer for the game just beyond the cut, if you like watchin’ fancy things explode.
