Earth Force Defenders is a real-time strategy game where you are defending the Earth from an alien invasion. Game play has a tower defense feel to it but your defenses are more mobile and you'll have to carefully dispatch them or run the risk of being overrun by alien ships.

The Windows Phone game has simple controls, several ship styles to help defend the planet and a host of upgrades to give you a better chance at victory. Available for low-memory Windows Phones, overall, Earth Force Defenders comes across a decent time waster of a game.
