Solar Chaos – Indie Game Spotlight
Solar Chaos is an interesting take on the tower defense genre, now though we call is TD (Tower Defense) its not really what you would think. There are no towers involve but there’s plenty of defense, instead of towers you use different type of asteroids placed in orbital pathways, these work to smash into your target that come in from all direction of the screen. We only called it tower defense for simplicity sake.
The game is available on the Apple App Store.
Unique Tower Defense
We keep going on about this tower defense thing, but it is important because Solar Chaos is truly a unique take on its genre. I spent about 4-5 hours playing it so far and the only thing that resemble a tower is a stationary asteroid deck with a building on it. It’s really difficult to explain so take a look at the picture below for an idea.
The idea here is the asteroids will spin in orbit of the sun thus smashing into enemies as they pass too close to it. I We personally feel its a very fun idea that I havn’t seen been executed in any other games like it.
Save the Solar System!
Now more about the plot, so aliens and other miscellaneous objects are trying to blow up our precious solar system, and instead of sitting there and take the hit, we fight back…with rocks. It’s a David VS Goliath type plot-line that pits the player against all sorts of intergalactic space ships coming to claim the bounty on our sun. It’s a very simple idea but it definitely works to get the ball rolling with gameplay.
For the price to buy the game, Solar Chaos definitely provide enough variety in its monsters and towers to make it more than worth while for plenty of hours of fun.
I think Solar Chaos is a great game wrapped up in a well rounded package. If you happen to enjoy strategic game play or just the simple tower defense then Solar Chaos is definitely one you should give a shot. The game is developed by Solid Roots Studios, click here to visit their website!
