The poor, defenseless little Po'Trubians are under attack by an army of evil robo-beings known as "Sleevils." It falls to one lone hero (of course) to defend the obnoxiously helpless little buggers and save their world from total annihilation. Enter Stan (STatic Alien Neutralizer), the rather junky old robot/veteran hero-type.
The plot serves little purpose except to bookend the campaign levels, but the blasting is really what it's all about anyway. Stan is rooted to the spot, which is odd seeing as he's in space, so players have to direct his blasts by tapping (and holding) on the screen to get him to blow away the alien aggressors. Par for the course, there are various upgrades that will unlock as the levels progress which can be carried over to the Survival Mode. Which is good because it's near impossible to last longer than a few seconds in Survival with the default gear.
Anyone who wants to get their mits on a fun little distraction for absolutely should check out this ad-free version of Last Stand Stan before the sale ends. It's a simple arcade shooter but the myriad of destructive unlockables keep the motivation to play longer high. Plus it makes time pass, which is always nice when stuck at an airport or something.
