“We are excited to deliver Robocalypse - Beaver Defense as a convenient and accessible WiiWare download,” said Alan Martin, Producer at Vogster Entertainment. “Written by Jay Lender (SpongeBob Squarepants™) and Micah Wright, the story is hilarious and offers a fitting back drop for this fast-paced, tongue-in-cheek game where the player must thwart the plans of a maniacal beaver.”

PRODUCT FEATURES:

  • Tower Defense Strategy - Stop the enemies before they get to your HQ and destroy it.
  • Hilarious Storyline - Written by Jay Lender (SpongeBob Squarepants) and Micah Wright.
  • Hero M.I.T.E.! (More Important Than Ever!) - Directly control one of the Hero robots - moving battle towers that are the Thermidoom company's pride and joy.
  • Outrageous Weapons - Heroes and towers can unleash spectacular weapons like flame throwers, chainsaws, and falling anvils - all to fortify the HQ.
  • On-the-Fly Upgrades - Automatically use defeated enemy scraps to apply upgrades, build new robots, and place more towers.
  • Online Competition - Internet play on the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection supports up to four (4) players.
  • 2 Multiplayer Modes - "Last Man Standing" (last remaining HQ wins0, "Best Defender" (play against time for the most points).

Robocalypse - Beaver Defense will offer madcap weaponry and uproarious destruction in a tower defense-style game. Set in a world of wise-cracking, battling robots, players will need to create and strategically position static and mobile defenses to stop the waves of enemies that are intent on destroying the player’s HQ. Robocalypse - Beaver Defense will offer upgradable skills, weapons, hero units and defenses to be used in single-player and up to four-player multiplayer mayhem. It is the follow up title to 2008’s critically received Nintendo DS™ real-time strategy game, Robocalypse.

As if we didn't have enough reasons to love beavers.

Edit: Oh the point of the game is to stop an evil beaver?
As if we didn't have enough reasons to hate beavers.

Oh I try.
Though after looking at those pictures I don't even see any beavers.
Misleading title... for the loss.

But I'm all for strategy games though and online could be nice.
And it's a follow-up to Robocalypse which did fairly good.

I'm not the biggest tower defense fan in the world, but this does look interesting.

WHAT?? An online game in an underused genre that's from someone other than Hudson? Be still my heart! Sounds very worthwhile, heard the original was pretty good.

Most tower defence games (Final Fantasy ones included) leave me cold, but this looks like it has potential...

@Corbie- That was a good show.

As for the game, I might get it just for the Wi-Fi play alone. I haven't really played a tower defense game, but I've seen other people play similar games, and it looks better than Crystal Defenders, so I'll keep my out for this one. Wow, there are some fairly good games being announced lately.
