11 bit studios has announced its upcoming title, Anomaly Defenders. The game will be the final installment in its Anomaly series of tower offense games.
Anomaly Defenders will be a unique shift, in that the aliens are the attacked party and humans need to be neutralized. The developer refers to the game as the “first ever Reverse Tower Offense game.” It will entail making tactical decisions in real time. Towers have different abilities, and units react to different towers in different ways.
There will be 24 levels with adjustable levels of difficulty. Anomaly Defenders is due out later this Spring.
If you have played the first version of this game, Anomaly Warzone Earth you know that besides it’s fantastic graphics it offered original gameplay dubbed a reverse-tower defense. While there is a light story, the focus is on the great gameplay.
While there is just a light storyline, it continues in this sequel that once you finish the first game, the war is not over. It has moved from Tokyo, the scene of the first game, to Korea. In this sequel, everything has been taken to the next level, especially the graphics. Pawel gives a few details.
“We have made slight changes to the interface. In the game there are a lot of visual improvements. Lens flare, particle effects, dynamic lighting. With the first Anomaly we were unable to do these things due to [hardware] limitations. Now with the iPads we are able to implement [these features].”
Changes in Anomaly Warzone Korea include a new vehicle, new powers, and new enemies to battle. The biggest change though are new gameplay modes. In the first version the gameplay was similar from level to level. Korea includes modes that require special strategies.
Anomaly Warzone Korea will be out before Christmas this year, if at all possible. Developed by 11Bit Studios from Poland, and published by Chillingo. Hit the jump for more screens from the game.
