Origin8 Technologies Ltd., the developer behind Sentinel, has done it again, releasing Space Station: Frontier to the Android Market today. This time, the tower defense genre has been blasted into space, allowing the player to harvest energy, mine resources, and upgrade extensive networks of defense turrets and mechanisms surrounding their main station, all the while battling alien enemies.

Adding a touch of social integration, Space Station has OpenFeint compatibility, allowing for leaderboards and various unlockable achievements. For fans of the tower defense genre, Space Station looks like a great entry, bringing the high-quality graphics, gameplay, and overall awesomeness we’ve come to expect from Origin8. At $1.99 in the Android Market, it’s definitely worth a look.

    Looks awesome, though it kind of reminds me of Asteroid Defense.

    This isn't intended as a knock on this game specifically, but I wonder how many more tower defense games the market can bear. I mean, seriously. Is anyone out there saying, "Yippee, another tower defense game," and keeping a straight face?

      Tried this game juz now. It's like a mix of Defense Grid & Revenge Of The Titans :)

      For the same reason the Apple store is overrun with them; they sell like crazy, easy to make and the genre has a loyal following.

    It's really weird how this company seems to as a practice not provide demos.

    I wonder if anyone else caught the name of the video was "Space Station: Frontier for iPhone/iPod"?

      Yeah, they didn't make a demo for Android, but the game is essentially the same.

        I imagined that might be the case.

        It's still kinda fun to point out, much like continuity errors in films.

    doesn't anyone ever look at the permissions? As a reviewer of these games you guys should also give us a break down of what the permissions are asking for and why.
