Tower defence in space.
This is a good tower defence game. I'm going to open saying that because I didn't really get into this game that much. The first tower defence game I played was back in the Warcraft 3 days which is like a decade old now. So I've played a lot of tower defence games and now days it really needs something special to draw me into it. Plants vs Zombies is just an adorable game with just a wonderful balance of strategy and accessible to pretty much everyone. This kind of doesn't have that kind of pull.
I love the fake terrible old sci-fi TV show look they have for the story stuff and to a large extent into the entire art style but for the most part it's a fairly standard tower defence game, you build towers and you upgrade them and you kill enemies. There are a couple of small twists in that the enemy path can change during the course of the game and you have limited satellites that you move around but it still ends up feeling just kind of the same.
If you aren't entirely sick of the genre then its worth a look but otherwise keep waiting for something else to come along, but to be honest despite the shear quantity of tower defence games being put out now days including on iOS and Android very few of them are actually anything special. The most recent one that actually caught my eye at all was probably Iron Brigade/Trenched and unfortunately it's one of a very small pack.
