Shack News: "The tower defense genre hit its peak somewhere in the late Aughts with Plants vs. Zombies, Desktop Tower Defense, and PixelJunk Monsters defining and dominating the genre. It's stagnated a bit since, due in large part to how rigid the genre's rules are. The last few years have seen a resurgence, but not in the traditional isometric-viewpoint-sense of games passed. Watching with bated breath if your best laid plans match the opposition making its way toward your goal line still has its charms, but what if you were the opposition? That's where the Anomaly series comes in."
