Alien Robot Monsters (A.R.M.), an intense sci-fi tower-defense game developed by Finnish outfit Kraftix Games, will be releasing September 10th on PC, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android.
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. The game’s complex technology tree allows for crazy upgrades such as a supply stash that becomes a flame-throwing, mortar-shooting bunker — or a tech center that can be upgraded to an orbital staging area . . . raining lasers on unsuspecting foes.
You can even upgrade your troops with better armor, weapons, and unique classes such as Space Marines, Spec Ops, Heavy, and Sentinels. The Alien Robot Monsters aren’t going to go down easy, however. 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.
- Classic tower defense action game with explosions, debris, bullets, and missiles
