Description: In this mode, your mission is to save the Earth from an alien invasion using a menagerie of superpowered animals from different countries(Totally 11 animal heroes). Each one has its own unique ability, and as the player, you must use these in tandem to defeat the dastardly extraterrestrials. At its heart, Animal Force is a tower defence & action game, which take full advantage of what a virtual arena has to offer. Unlike traditional 2D tower defence games, the battles in Animal Force take place in 3D arenas, so enemies move in 3D space. you can place your defenders anywhere in order to stop them or pick up these animals anytime when you need.
Review: There is something fun, lovable and even enjoyable about Animal Force, but I can’t quite put my finger on it. It looks a little sparse, but the animals are cute and fun to look at, the gameplay is basic but also rewarding and even the sound effects and music is hit and miss. This is a game that I would like to recommend, but to be honest I really can’t. If it was half its current asking price I might be more upbeat with this review, but for full-price, I think it is one probably best avoided.
