The last Humble Bundle for Android just ended, but if that wasn't quite enough to slake your desire for gaming on the go, may I interest you in the Humble Mobile Bundle? The primary difference between this one and the last is that this package won't include Steam codes for the desktop counterparts. Only Android. However, the four primary games you get are Contre Jour, Anomaly Korea, Plants vs. Zombies and Bladeslinger. If you pay more than the average ($5.38 at time of writing, but ~$7 is typical throughout the life of the sale), you can unlock Metal Slug 3 and The Room.
Tower defense games are great. Tired and done to death, sure, but the good ones are really fantastic. Anomaly Warzone Earth and the sequel Anomaly Korea are two of the better entries in the genre, having the distinguishing factor of playing role reversal. In these, you're not building towers, you're trying to slip past them. Now, both titles are half off on the Play Store, each costing a mere $2.
Normally, each game individually is priced at $4 and now you can get both for the same price. Not a bad deal! Back when Ryan reviewed Anomaly Korea, he loved it.
You've probably played loads of tower defense games on Android. There's a reason they're so popular, though. See, tower defense games are fun and hard to screw up. Still, the same old thing can get boring after a while. So it's nice to see Anomaly Korea show up and continue turning the genre on its head like its predecessor did. In Anomaly Korea, you play the creeps trying to get past the towers.
Gameplay And Controls
The backstory is that the aliens have invaded and they are not the nice kind that want to invite us to join a galactic federation.
If you've never played Anomaly Warzone Earth, it's worth looking into - the game took the tower defense genre and turned it on its head, quite literally. Anomaly is a tower offense game, in which you send in and guide your forces through a defense-laden map and achieve various objects in the process. The sequel to that game is now out - Anomaly Korea.
The gameplay looks basically similar (though I'm certain there are some new features), so players of the previous game should have no problem jumping right in. The screenshots suggest visuals have been improved as well.
