Rise of the Colony is a fun and challenging tower defense-style strategy game where you have to protect a group of little Earthlings encased in boxes from invading missile-firing robots that float down from the sky. By setting up turret guns and protective towers, you must ensure that at least one member of the ‘Colony’ survives each wave of attacks from outer space. Build up your defensive structures against the increasing firepower of the falling bad guys, and ensure your colony survives to fight another day!
This tricky survival game requires shrewd tactical know-how and strategic planning skills, as you have to carefully choose good positions for your anti-aircraft guns and defensive weaponry. Your construction and engineering abilities also come into play, as you have to build a solid foundation around the boxes, which contain members of the Colony, to ensure their safeguarding. Ok Master Tactician of Defense, let’s see what you can do!
How to Play: In each of the increasingly difficult levels, you have to survive an onslaught of invading robots that fall from the top of the game screen. The target for these bad guys is to eliminate the ‘Colony’ members - little people hiding / encased in crates (boxes) along the bottom of the game screen. Your job is to use defensive weapons to shoot the equally-ruthless robots out of the sky, and ensure the Colony’s safety. You can purchase defensive weapons using ‘Metal’, a type of virtual income earned by eliminating the attackers.
Using your computer mouse or touchpad, Left Click on the available items along the bottom of the game screen. If you have enough Metal, click on the area of the structure you want to place this item / weapon. Once you are happy that the Colony members are well protected, click on the “Start Wave” button in the bottom right corner. Descending enemy craft enter the screen from the top, and hopefully your defensive system holds. Use Metal earned from destroying each wave to increase defenses, and/or replace lost Colony crates as you progress. Click on the dynamite icon on the bottom right to use the dynamite sticks to remove any not needed boxes.
