Hey guys today I would like to tell you about Planets Under Attack.
First I would like to say that this game is one of the most challenging games I have played, when I got the game its all I played for weeks! The game play is truly addictive.Story overview
Basically you are a space profiteer looking to make tax off planets to become filthy RICH! In other words, our dream jobs.
So you go from star formation to star formation trying to beat other old wannabe rich dudes from winning that areas planets.
During your adventure the company who is loaning your broke ass sollars (space bucks) will come calling! And they want repayment immediately...... To the point where they initiate planets takeovers attempting to bankrupt you!
Of course once you pay these slimeballs off you continue with missions against other CPU players, a robot race, and an odd alien race all leading up to a grand finale fight against a huge boss planet.Gameplay
Now for gameplay itself you are basically sending ships from planet to planet to capture them, upgrade planets, create money planets to build more ships......sounds boring? ITS NOT!
On some levels you need to hold one planet for a specific time, so if you capture it your enemy will send thousands of ships over and over to try to capture it, so in turn you need to send thousands of ships to it to keep the planet and fend off the attackers. If the enemy captures the planet you will need to recapture it and hold it again for the specified amount of time. And also while all this madness is happening the enemy will also try to capture your other planets as well.
On other levels you are tasked with capturing three specific planets and holding them all at once.
The game is quite challenging difficulty wise and in order to obtain all "stars" in a mission you need to complete side tasks, such as build 3 money planets, or finish under a certain par time.Graphics
The graphics are quite amazing. You will find yourself playing in giant nebula's with purple gas floating around and stars and galaxy's in the background. One night my girlfriend saw the game running and she said it was the most beautiful game she has ever seen.Achievements
As you guys can see the achievements can be quite tough, and the achievement for killing 1,000,000 population will take some time and or turbo controller's! However there is a quest counter for it, thank god! Another challenging one is obtaining all the "stars" in the campaign.Price
Cost wise, 1200 points was well worth it in my opinion. I tried waiting for a sale but it never came, so one day I said screw it and spent the $15! I'm so glad I did because its one of the most unique and challenging games I have ever played. If and when you complete this game you WILL feel like a rock star!Rating
This game is an easy 5 stars for me. There are no bugs or buggy achievements. But there are beautiful environments, addictive gameplay, good story, and a true sense of achievement when you beat it.Video
