Like predecessors Anomaly: Warzone Earth and Anomaly Korea, 11 Bit Studios’ Anomaly 2 turns classic tower defense upside down. Instead of fortifying a base with turrets, cannons, and soldiers, Anomaly 2 places you in command of the incoming horde. Armed with a combat suit capable of setting up decoys, detonating EMP pulses, and healing units, you'll be tasked with leading a convoy of tanks, armored mechs, drones, and mobile labs through hostile territory, blasting through metallic alien defenses to clear roads or liberate important objectives.
In the future, if aliens should crash-land in both Tokyo and Baghdad, they’ll call on you to fight them. And Jason Statham’s voice will guide you. Or at least that’s how it is in Anomaly: Warzone Earth. Sort of a “reverse tower defense” game, it has you guide an armored column through fortified routes, providing upgrades, decoys, and repairs to keep your units alive. The end result is a real-time strategy game that pushes you to figure out the best possible route for your convoy while weighing the pros and cons of sending your units into harm’s way for additional funds to buy upgrades.
