A couple days back we mentioned that SAWS | The Puridium War (which I'm going to just call SAWS from here on out) couldn't get here fast enough. Turns out it got here pretty fast after all, and is now available in the Google Play Market for download. We've been fooling with it for a couple days, and let me tell ya, if you're a mobile gamer you have to give it a try. Think part tower defense, part third-person shooter, and part space adventure and you'll have an idea of how it all works.
You're PFC Lucas 11, and it's your duty to protect the Puridium crystal from a horde of monsters hell bent to eat it. You have an assortment of weapons and special items at hand in the store, a few are in-app purchases but most are obtainable by just playing, and turrets to help you fend them all off. It's flat out fun, and as I mention in the video after the break, it hits the right spot between hard and easy to be enjoyable to play. You'll get good at it, but the endless maps keep getting harder until you die. If you find it's your style of game, it's one you'll keep installed and play. And a big shout out to the developers for making great extras available in the store for an average player. Nothing there costs so much that you'll never be able to get it, even if you're a casual player. That's something we rarely see beside paid in-app purchases.
Mobilwerx has designed the game to play an a laundry list of devices, with versions for Open GL 1.1 devices like the HTC Desire, to a full HD version for the latest quad core devices like the Transformer Prime. I've tested it on the Transformer Prime and the Galaxy Nexus, and it works great. Hit the break and have a look at a video and some game screens, and click the download link.
