Inkub 

 

Inkub is the strangest Tower Defense kind of game I have ever played. Before I continue I should probably explain what a Tower Defense game is for those who are not versed in that description. Players are stopping a wave of enemies that march along a specific path. This stoppage comes from putting cannons that shoot at the enemies before they can reach the goal.

The goal in Inkub is your egg. In essence we are protecting an incubator. This is where the strangeness comes in. It is one thing to stop wave after wave of bad creatures, but an completely different one to stop them from scrambling your egg. Uh yeah, the pun was intended. The strange attacking characters are coming through pipes, and your cannons are put in the same pipes. The cannons fire based on proximity, so players do not need to man them.

Inkub has a crisp and clean graphical look to it. The background is dark, but the rest offsets quite well. The constant cannon fire can get bothersome. Enemies flash out of existence when their life force is diminished. The same happens to your cannons if they get overrun. There is some mild animations to the strange looking things that are trying to reach your egg.

The music in Inkub is pleasurable. I found myself excited to put down defenses to protect the egg. I have to admit I feel like such a momma bird by protecting an egg. I did not find any offensive language while playing Inkub. The down side to this app is the blaster fire can get a little redundant. Thankfully Cosmonaut Games toned down those sounds.

Family Friendly Gaming was given a download code for Inkub. There are forty levels, and various modes. This apps is currently priced at three dollars. In my opinion this is worth the price of admission. The three difficulty levels allow Inkub to reach various gamer levels. Numerous weapons are unlockable, which add some fun strategy as well.

Inkub is like a lot of Tower Defense games. If you enjoy putting down your defenses, and watching the action unfold you will thoroughly enjoy this game. The quirks this game bring to the franchise are actually pretty nifty. The whole pipes, and rotation of the levels made me appreciate the level design. Sitting there watching these strange creatures get shot did get a little repetitive, but I found a thrill in stopping them.

The main lesson in Inkub is protection. I believe this kind of a lesson will resonate better with the female side of the family. The whole egg part of Inkub will definitely catch their eye. I do not know a lot of guys who want to protect eggs - even married ones. I hope to see this franchise continue to flourish in the years to come. It was my pleasure to be able to play and review Inkub.
