Kraftix Games’s debut game, A.R.M., or Aliens Robots Monsters, is a tower defense game where players’ attack isn’t limited to their towers. It is planned for release on Steam on September 10th for Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android.
The Story Behind It All
It is the classic tale of humanity’s trip into space, embarking on a journey to where no man has gone before and in search of another location habitable for life. Now, a fleet of space marines have found the perfect planet! Well, except for the hostile alien race hell-bent of ridding the human vermin from their beloved planet. Besides that welcoming attitude, the planet is just perfect. And just when humanity was getting nice and cozy a war between angry alien robot monsters and humanity ensues. Man, we have the toughest luck.
So, when the going gets tough, the humans bring out the big guns. Literally. With the fate of humanity on the line, players build the ultimate defense (and fleet) to combat these touchy folk and preserve the planet for their own.
Tower Defense is a Tower Offense
A.R.M., or Aliens Robots Monsters, is a sci-fi tower defense game where the defense goes beyond the reach of our towers. It is designed with low bit/16 bit artwork reminiscent of classic games for an old feel with modern mechanics. A.R.M. is 31 levels (and 6 bonus ones) of complete carnage with over 60 updates to 23 different tower variations available. On top of that there are 18 global upgrades with 5 levels per upgrade available. Emphasis on upgrades! (Even for the marines)
Players build up their own defense system using towers, a fleet or marines, whatever you can imagine. And the fleet can go beyond the limits of the tower to do your bidding. But it’s not just US who can upgrade and use a variety of artillery willy nilly. In fact, the robots have quite the spectrum of weaponry themselves and aren’t afraid to use everything.
For More Information
On September 10th, A.R.M. will be released on Steam prices at $6.50 USD (and so will the soundtrack, priced at $8.75 USD). It will be available for Windows, Mac, and Linux. Both the Android and iOS versions will be available on the same day and for free (with in-game purchases, though). For more information, check out the official website, Twitter, and Facebook page. I’ll include a link to the Steam page on Sept. 10 right here as well. Here’s the Steam Greenlight page for the time-being!
Also, I may try out A.R.M. and write a review of it too, so keep an eye out for that!
