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.
Tower defense may be the most overpopulated genre on iOS today, but there's good reason for that. They're simple to develop, and although the App Store has plenty of 'em, they're still really fun. To separate themselves from the herd, Backflip Studios is tying theirs into cult-classic film Army of Darkness.
Back in March we reported on the announcement of an officially licensed iPhone game based on the legendary cult-classic Army of Darkness. Today that game arrived in the New Zealand App Store which means there's a very high liklihood the game will be arriving in App Stores around the world in the coming hours.
