Defend a Remote Outpost from Hostile Lifeforms in Alien Robot Monsters
Tired of sitting still while the enemy leisurely invades your base? You can now take the initiative in Alien Robot Monsters (A.R.M.), an intense sci-fi tower defense game launching today on iOS, Android, Mac, and Windows.
Created by Finnish developer Kraftix Games, A.R.M. improves on the tower defense genre by going well beyond upgradeable towers. Need to mount an attack? No problem! Your troops can leave the safety of those armored buildings behind and go from a quick skirmish to all out war in a split second. Furthermore, the game’s complex technology tree allows for massive upgrades such as a supply stash that becomes a flame-throwing, mortar-shooting bunker – or a tech center that can be upgraded to a deadly orbital staging area.
You can also upgrade your troops with better armor, weapons, and unique classes such as Space Marines, Spec Ops, Heavy, and Sentinels. However, Alien Robot Monsters don’t go down easily. These mechanical menaces have a few nasty tricks up their sleeves – including aerial assault bots, swarms of snake-like fiends, troops that can insta-kill your soldiers, walking tanks, and even dangerous mecha bosses …
“When we were creating Alien Robot Monsters, we knew from the start that we needed to kill some sacred cows in order to get noticed,” said Markku Rankala, co-founder at Kraftix Games. “For example, A.R.M. allows players to engage the enemy directly through the use of elite units – which in RTS-like fashion can leave the towers behind and funnel the enemy into the desired direction . . . creating all sorts of useful bottlenecks. This one change adds an entirely new dimension to the combat.”
