A.R.C.S. is a futuristic war-strategy action game where you have to defend your base against an army of alien invaders. On a far-off planet called A.R.C.S., you play the role of a commander of a human military base that has come under attack from a horde of alien conquerors. You must repel the attacks using the huge armory of weapons at your disposal. The alien attackers have hundreds of troops, and you only have a few defenders, so you’ll have to think strategically to defeat them in this rapid-fire, tower defense-style shooting game.
Attack is the best form of defense, as in each level, you must destroy a wave of different types of bad guys who are all marching on your base. Use machine guns, rocket launchers, grenades, missiles and more to eliminate the pesky aliens. At the end of each level, you get the chance to upgrade your weapons and make much-needed repairs to your base. As well as strategically choosing the right weapons, you’ll need quick reactions as you must aim and fire on the marching wave of enemies before it’s too late.
The better you perform in the defense missions, the more credits you earn to purchase bigger weapons and cooler upgrades. Ready to defend your base Lieutenant? Good, let’s see what you and your men are made of!
How to Play: There are three levels of difficulty to choose from – Easy, Medium and Difficult. The amount of enemies you face increases with each level of difficulty. Your military base is under attack from some indigenous aliens, and your goal is to hold them off. There’s only one way to do that – Blow them up! Simply use rapid-fire by left clicking your computer mouse to aim and shoot your weapon. Once you have eliminated all of the bad guys, you progress to the next level.
Before you start the next level, you go to the upgrade shop where you can spend the virtual credits earned. Purchase bigger and better guns as well as repairs to the base. The base health bar is at the top of the game screen so if it gets damaged – repair it in the shop. Once the base health bar reaches zero, it’s game over. If you have purchased new weapons, you can toggle through them by using your Left and Right Arrow keys during the missions. Alternatively, you can use the number keys 1-9 to choose your weapons.
Tip: Take out the bigger enemies first, even if they are further away – as they inflict the most damage on the base. Once you take care of them, you can destroy the smaller guys at the front line.
