11 bit studios just released the sequel to their highly successful tower defense game “Anomaly: Warzone Earth”. There are plenty of new features waiting inside Anomaly 2, but the one that really stands out is the brand new multiplayer mode that will put your skills to a test against other people online.
Anomaly 2 is direct sequel of the previous game “Warzone: Earth”, where Aliens decided to invade our bellowed planet and deploy deadly towers to exterminate the human race. Few years later, Humankind is on the verge of extinction. Few convoys that were lucky enough to survive the invasion, joined forces to search the frozen tundra for food and supplies. You command one of those remaining convoys, the Yukon.
You can now morph your troops into war mechs to combat the alien towers. Each unit has a different form and abilities that should be utilized depending on the threat you face. You can easily switch between forms by double tapping on your units, but keep in mind that mech forms have their weaknesses as well. It would be unwise to simply “walk” your convoy across the map. Graphics have been updated as well and you can now clearly see all the tiny details down there. Colors, lightning, explosions…everything, looks terrific, if you can run the game at all. Anomaly 2 is pretty demanding and developers were fully aware of this fact. They even released a benchmark tool (link at the bottom) to test the game engine on your device if you don’t believe the “not compatible with your device” notice on the Play Store.
The multiplayer mode allows you to play against other players online in tower defense vs. tower offense style where you either take control of the alien towers or lead human units to victory. Get the most out of your convoy by fine tuning your battle squad and developing custom tactics to obliterate the enemy. Anomaly 2 comes with a price tag of $4.99, but make sure you download the benchmark first and test if your Android device is capable of running the game smoothly.
