With the release of a big game such as Destiny 2 this week, it’s really easy for other, smaller games to go completely unnoticed between all the noise. This is the case for a little game called X-Morph: Defense which released yesterday. I bet you probably never even heard of it:
X-Force: Defense marries the top down shooter and tower defense genres with each other, and it looks like it might actually work. From what I can tell, there’s a fair amount of strategy as well as Bullet Hell chaos to it. The official description of the game calls it:
“Unique fusion of a top down shooter and tower defense strategy. You are the X-Morph – an alien species that invades Earth to harvest its resources. Strategize in the build mode by carefully selecting various types of alien towers or throw yourself right into the battle. Build mazes for incoming enemies in an environment that provides exceptional planning freedom. Tear down buildings and collapse bridges to support your defense or to simply indulge in a spectacle of unprecedented destruction. Possess a range of unique alien weapons and use defense strategies like you’ve never seen before in this game genre.”
So you’re also the bad guy. Cool! It looks like it could be fun, and if you’re looking for something a little bit different than that other game that everyone else is on about, then maybe give this game from EXOR Studios a look.
X-Morph: Defense is available on PS4, PC and Xbox One.
