$20 Game of the Week: Anomaly – Warzone Earth (PC, IOS, Android, Xbox Live Arcade)

Tower Defense games are a dime a dozen. How many Tower OFFENSE games have you played? That’s right, instead of putting up the cannons that blast the enemies, you direct them as they make their way to the end point. 11Bit Studio’s Anomaly – Warzone Earth is unique among its kind. In Anomaly, you take control of a commander as you thwart an alien invasion by leading your convoy towards huge domes that have appeared throughout Baghdad and Tokyo. You’ll direct their route, changing it on the fly when needed. Your battle suit gives you a selection of powers, such as the ability to put up a smoke screen or repair your vehicles. While the controls are shaky and take time getting used to, the gameplay manages to stand out and add an interesting twist to the tower defense formula.

Famicom Dojo Podcast: System Fragmentation

The Wii U Pro Controller presents two problems: 1) It’s just like the Wii Classic or Wii Classic Pro Controllers: the adoption rate is poor, nothing that works on it NEEDS to work on it, and we totally forget about it. 2) It actually takes off, and threatens one of the core value propositions of the Wii U. Only Nintendo makes games for it, and 3rd parties just ignore it after a while. Vinnk and Sean discuss the problem of hardware fragmentation in video game systems, and trot out some well-worn examples as well as more recent ones: the Sega Genesis 32x, Android’s newest Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, and more!

Vinnk and SeanOrange take a look at the data, how the mobile gaming pie is growing, why smartphone gaming has been so successful, and what (if anything) Nintendo can do about it.

Plants Vs Zombies Launches On Android

PopCap games has finally brought their very popular backyard defense game Plants Vs Zombies to Android devices! Its available via the Amazon Appstore exclusively, so you won’t find it on Android Market. Its well worth downloading the Amazon Appstore right now because PvZ is free today only. Yes, May 31, 2011. If it is any other day, you’ll pay $2.99. Be aware the size of the game means you have to download over wifi, but you can still buy the game now and download later if you’re mobile. You can even queue it from the website if you don’t have your phone or tab handy right now.

$2.99 is still a good price for a great game (and a bargain compared to what you pay on other platforms), but its worth downloading Plants Vs Zombies now while its still free.
