This is early stage, so don't have much towers - enemies. Later, it's flooded.

This is kinda advergame of [Superhero Squad Show], Animation made by Marvel for children. We know many Advergames are boring, also marked for children. To our happy, this is good/ fun / well-made Defense game.

Many defense games are dedicated to 'Few towers - Many upgrades'. This game is different. 'Many towers - Few upgrades'. Of course, you must upgrade those towers fully. However this game has only 3 level for each tower, so 2 upgrades are needed. There's only 1 stage in this game, but really many enemies are spawned around 30 waves. Both of Towers & Enemies, they are all flooded in that area. The road is somewhat confusing if you start for the first time, so need to learn by trial & error.

Needs more time than expected & no save at all, but still worth to play. Too fun, so I cleared it twice. :)

Review : [Creeper World] (2009)

Developer : Knuckle Cracker
Release year : 2009
Price : 19.99$

Good evolution of [Harvest : Massive Encounter], but still has some flaws.


This game is better than how trailer looks.

[Harvest : Massive Encounter] was good or even excellent game, but you can't win it - just survive longer, and that was big problem. Except for that, it's very well made, so some games are influenced by that. I think [Creeper World] is best among the followers.

'Collector' streams energy to far buildings, but also to produce energy. So player might build collectors properly to handle energy & gain more energy. And the best thing is, you can move weapons here & there. This is not just defense game, you can move weapons to offense. Enemy is the most unique thing in this game. They are not single objects, like 'liquid' or 'water'. At first, it's hard to understand. But after you know how it works, it gives really unique & fun experience.

To my sad, this game has many problems. 1. You can't save while playing. I spent 20 - 40 minutes for every stages until 15, but can't save in the middle of stage, so sometimes I gave up & later re-start again. It's really painful. 2. 'Water enemy' is hard to understand for their moving. Until now, I don't know exactly how they react for my attack, and have harder & longer time to survive. 3. 'Reactor' doesn't work properly. It must give player additional energy, but it's not. Even if I build over +1.0, that's not stocked in Energy bar. Maybe it's due some bug, and must be fixed.

[Creeper World] is another cool game, but something must be fixed or even re-built. And for price, I think 9.99$ + steam achievement could be much better. Could be real cult hit with that. (Of course, after some fix.)
