Swarm Defense

Author Comments

Defend yourself against giant swarms of enemies and shoot them into pieces! You are in control of a tank. Kill the horde in each round to win! Make sure you do not run out of ammo or health. Any extra ammo or health will be converted into money for upgrades! This game gets progressively more difficult as the swarms become more unpredictable. Use the WASD keys or the arrow keys to move.

Very addictive game!


I highly enjoyed this game. Creativity is what pushed a 10, originality sucks though.

Still, 10.

And with one detail all your points blew away.

This is the most rudimentary kind of shooter but somehow I actually enjoyed it at first glance. It's a relaxing aside and the way the light flickers with every shot is a pretty neat effect - I like it.

Then around level... sixteen, I believe, one where very fast enemies buzz you from offscreen, the very last enemy in the swarm flew offscreen and never came back. Fine, I figured, I'll just reload and try the level again. And thus did I find this game has no save function. Whole game, gone, wiped. Fuck this noise, I take back every nice thing I ever thought about this piece of shit.
