About

Anomaly 2 is a sequel to Anomaly: Warzone Earth and the third part in the Anomaly mobile game series. Anomaly series inverted the classic tower defense genre to create an innovative "tower offense" type of strategy.

Plot

The game is set in the post-apocalyptic near future, sometime after the alien invasion of Earth that was described in Anomaly: Warzone Earth. By 2034, our planet is devastated and mostly covered with ice. The last remnants of humanity are trying to defeat the invading alien machines, who stay besieged in their highly fortified bases.

Gameplay

Like its predecessors, Anomaly 2 puts the player in control of a convoy of armored vehicles. The goal of each mission is to fight your way through the enemy territory that is protected with defense towers and units. The game has no construction options or resource mining, but there are repair zones on each level. They allow the player to upgrade, purchase, or sell his or her units right in the middle of a mission. Anomaly 2 introduces a new gameplay option: morphing. All vehicles have more than one shape and can morph into different units with unique abilities.

Multiplayer

Anomaly 2 is the first game in the series to introduce multiplayer. This mode allows playing as either humans or alien machines. Humans gameplay is the same as in single mode. Playing for the alien side, however, completely changes the game and turns it into the tower defense where the player's goal is to withstand the siege.

Anomaly 2 reviews and comments

What a pity... the game seems to have potential, to be pretty and rather fun but as a Linux player, only one thing can be said: CRASHING!!! For, Yes, to summarize, I could not even play a single mission of the game! What for? Ben simply because, after 5 attempts (all vain), the game always hangs randomly on one of the loading screens, either the one before the first mission (frustrating) or even the one following the intro cinematic. (this is the Pompom, you do not even see the menu of the game...) And in view of the steam Forum of the game, I am loiiiiiiiiin to be an isolated case apparently. -----Verdict: developers gentlemen, there is still work for the Linux version... and not just a little! Dear Linux players, for the moment, flee this game like the plague. 90% chance of wasting money by buying it...

I had already enjoyed anomaly WarZone Earth for his style of Tower offense game which was new and interesting to take in hand. So I took this second part without worrying too much about what I was going to find. I am very happy with this choice because the game is very interesting and more thorough than the 1st. The scenario is not extraordinary but he lets himself follow with pleasure and does his job to immerse us in the world of the game as it should. I really like the novelties made in relation to the 1st part as the transformations of units and enemies that it is preferable to approach with units with low or high rate of fire for example. This renews the gaming experience well and makes it a little more tactical. Compared to anomaly WarZone Earth, I move a lot more the order of my units in my squad and I sell/buy more often to better cope with each situation and get better scores. I have not yet tested the competitive multiplayer offered by the game but it looks pretty rich and quite innovative. I find it very good the idea to oppose a player making Tower offense to a Player doing Tower Defense. In addition, the number of abilities available to the Defender is quite important and requires some time of considerable mastery to appreciate the game which still makes the fights quite tactical. So for me it's only positive. The only thing I blame him personally is his lack of backup point. The missions are not necessarily very long but I would have liked to be able to save my game to stop it anytime and be able to resume a mission at the last checkpoint rather than having to start all over again if I am interrupted in my session of the game. I'll put a 18/20 on him!
