Customer Reviews

Good graphics, good action.

This is a good all-around game. No crashes, decent graphics, fast-paced game play. Playing is a little too tense to call it a casual game but it's certainly not an in-depth gaming experience. Kind of the same concept as space invaders. You're on top of a light house and creatures are coming up from the water to attack. Your job is simply to shoot them, beat them off, or use your powers over nature to blast them all off at once. They give you some special weapons in this game. The first one allows you to use lightning to zap the little critters in one thunderclap. If you have a little time to spare on the weekend, this is definitely for you. If you're an intense gamer, then you might be looking for more.

What a find!

How did I not know about this? Thank you IGN Apps of the Day email for telling me about it.

The entire package is a blast. A hidden gem that I can't stop playing. Finished EP1, still Survival mode, but now looking forward to EP2. I will definitely be purchasing it when it arrives!

Different from the rest!

This is a great little game that is gratifying to play, even during short sessions. It's really unique and keeps you wanting to play the next level every time.
