What do you get when you combine the deck-stacking phenomenon of a card game like Magic: The Gathering and a tower defense game like Sentinel? Hudson's new Creature Defense, that's what. It's on the PSP Store, and it's strangely compelling.
The game starts off gently enough, with a pre-set deck of cards to begin your defense of all things holy. Wave after wave of somewhat more difficult beasts come a-wassailing down the path, trying to get to your main tower, or castle, or whatever, since it's offscreen. Some of the beasts fly. There's a card for that. Some of the beasts come in great rolling flocks. There's a card for that.
