Anomaly Defenders Released For Linux, The Last In The Anomaly Series

Posted by , 30 May 2014 at 2:37 pm UTC / 8870 views
Anomaly Defenders is now out for Linux and continues the struggle from the previous Anomaly games, only this time you are attacking the aliens! There's a good deal going on it too.

If you buy directly from Games Republic at our Linux shop not only do you get Anomaly 2 with it, but we even get a tiny cut too! You should also get Steam keys.

Any game you buy from gives us a tiny cut and the overall store is run by the Anomaly developers.

Anomaly Defenders

Seven tower types, each one with its own set of strenghts and weaknesses, let you prepare the best combination of armor, firepower and special abilities to meet oncoming forces

Three upgrade levels give you greater tactical depth and flexibility

Six special functions allow you to boost your defenses when and where it's necessary: perform repairs, extinguish fires, temporarily raise stats and bestow new abilities to transform your towers into impenetrable barriers, long range artillery, devastating bombs or maelstroms of destruction spewing hellfire on all approaching enemies!

10 enemy fighting vehicles, including airborne assault machines, represent the latest technology developed by the Earthlings using info gleaned from our destroyed units

Human units have now the transformation capability, doubtlessly stolen from our fallen comrades

You have 24 levels to grow form an accomplished tactician into the best commander our race has ever known!

The launchpads are our only means of escape. Defend them against the onslaught of the most dangerous species in the whole galaxy - humans.

Extract resources, gather energy, strategically place the towers and use the special functions wisely to beat back repeated assaults of Earthling convoys!

It's only $9.99 for the both of them too which is an absolute steal.

>> Yeah you get the buggy anomaly 2

And let's not forget the terrible bugs in Anomaly 1... things like Steam Achievements disappearing all the time. I bought (preordered!) Anomaly 2 because I thought this would be fixed in time bit last I checked, people were still complaining about this on the Steam forums. Sorry, but now way I will pay again for anything coming from this company until those things are fixed.

I never experienced any bugs in all three games.

I agree, I completed both Anomaly games without a hitch.

Anecdotal I know, but the joys of PC gaming...

I don’t remember which Anomaly it was but at least one of them doesn’t work at all here. I’d advise people not to buy without trying the demo first to be sure it’s working.

Edit: it’s Anomaly Warzone Earth. I tried to run it from a terminal to see what might be wrong but I can’t do it without knowing its steam appid.

And btw I’m not alone:

As I already pointed out elsewhere, the difference this time is that you play the aliens, trying to knock out those lousy humans!

Oh, Anomaly 2 finally DRM free? Well, for $9.99 I think I'll grab the game again to finally get it DRM free. Bought it already in the Humble Store but failed to notice that except for the Android version they don't offer the game DRM free at all.

First Anomaly didn't work for me under Linux (I'm one of those affected by start/exit bug). They knew and did nothing to fix it.

So no version 2 for me.
