Get the guns ready, sound the alarm, throw some headphones on and prepare to whip some alien ass in the latest title from developer 10tons. Boom Brigade 2, sequel to the popular iOS game, puts the player in control of troops and the overall defense, while waves of aliens attempt to seek and destroy. Think turret defense with more action and elements from line drawing. The result is an action-packed experience on Windows Phone.
The main campaign sports 30 missions, spanning across three chapters. Leaderboard support is present with several quick game modes. There's bags of gameplay hours with upgrades for multiple trooper types, as well as the number of missions available. Bonus missions can be unlocked once mission 5 has been completed.
The ability to control troopers in both real time as well as a tactical mode provides enough scope for players to choose exactly how they wish to play through the game. If you're familiar with the original Boom Brigade then you'll feel right at home here. While the title is not Xbox Live enabled (boo), there are a selection of achievements to unlock while the player progresses through the game.
Here are some highlights of the game itself:
- Explosive action against a rampaging alien horde
- Five unlockable upgrades for each character
- A hand crafted campaign including 30 missions
- Varying types of alien enemies that require different tactics
- Survival levels with leaderboards
- Other interesting quick game modes like "Medical Emergency" with leaderboards
- Over a dozen achievements
It's the seventh Windows Phone 8 release for 10tons and the developer plans to throw out a new title every week, for several more weeks. We'll have a review of Boom Brigade 2 up in the near future, so stay tuned.
In the meantime, you can download Boom Brigade 2 for $2.49 from the Windows Phone Store (free trial is available).
