Do not be deceived! A mere glimpse at the title, Planets Under Attack, and it would be easy to presume that this is a simple game. Probe further and you’ll discover a limited selection of mechanics to build and mobilize your arms to both attack and defend planets. Dig deeper still and you’ll find a plethora of strategic options, both before and during any match. You’ll also discover a single player campaign that at times is pointlessly frustrating, telling a story you won’t care about, but for the most part that’s okay.
