Anomaly: Warzone Earth was initially released for both the PC and Mac systems in April 2011 by 11 Bit Studios and has now finally been launched on Xbox Live’s Arcade Marketplace.
Billing itself as a reverse to the traditional Tower Defence type of game, it quite literally puts you in the attacking party’s camp. So what’s it all about then? Well, put quite simply, you are in control of the commander of your forces, and it is your job to ensure the safe passage of a convoy of units to a designated objective/target using tactical manoeuvres and weapons/distractions. Your enemy? An advanced alien race whose spaceship has crash landed to earth after splitting into several pieces and then deployed its technology across the various levels you are required to progress through.
