This was a good review that leaves me wanting to play the game. I'm not sure (still) that I get how fully the tower defense elements are implemented (are they a separate process for a stage or two, or are they part of every level?) but it's clear that the game is something interesting and probably worth the price tag. Given that it's only an hour long, I wouldn't have minded a bit more discussion about the "after you've beaten it once" value, but still... very good and quite polished writing. I hope to see you more active on the site again.

So let me get this are on trial for failing to protect Earth but if you succeed in the game which is the recollection of your effort why are you on trial?

Good review. You made the game sound really fun to play.

Good review, I was actually interested in this title. It looks like the type of game that is either really good or really bad, and with the mostly positive feedback I've seen so far it's probably worth the $5 or whatever it goes for.

Thank you Jason, I hope I get a bit more time to put some new reviews together. Certainly have a large pool of games to choose from. I like the site redesign by the way, the front page especially looks very slick.

CoarseDragon: now you ask, I could have explained the story far better. Earth stopped the planet from being destroyed, but he is on trial for allowing them to even reach the planet. He's portrayed as flamboyant and a showboater, and the trial is more to establish whether or not he is fit and responsible enough to be a guardian. The four city stages that I mentioned are his recollection of the invasion, and without saying too much, the story ties itself up properly after that.

sportsman: I was browsing on Steam and the screenshots caught my eye. The video looked good so I took a punt on it, and I'd say it paid off.
