Defense Grid: The Awakening
Defense Grid: The Awakening is a unique spin on tower defense gameplay that will appeal to players of all skill levels. A horde of enemies is invading, and it’s up to the player to stop them by strategically building fortification towers around their base. The controls are intuitive and the gameplay is deep — the special attacks and properties of each tower work together to provide many ways to succeed.
In the far future, humanity struggles against a relentless enemy with weak tactics, but seemingly infinite troops. On one small planet, they were successful in driving the invaders off by using advanced technology to protect the power cores that the aliens were desperate to have. One of the generals in the war volunteered to have himself uploaded into the computer to assist the colony should the aliens ever return in Defense Grid: The Awakening.
A thousand years later, the aliens are back. In Defense Grid: The Awakening player manages to make it to one of the ancient bases, and awakens the artificial intelligence construct of the general who was placed there in the previous war.
