Defense Grid: The Awakening packshot image
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.
The player must defend his power cores using ten different tower types from the invading enemy.
Each tower has unique trade-offs that affect ideal placement, such as line-of-sight or ballistic trajectory fire; a large area of effect or damage over time; and minimum and maximum ranges. Killing enemies earns resources, which can be used to build more towers and upgrade towers toward three different levels. During the game, the player battles fifteen types of enemies, each with unique capabilities and strategies.
