The game is a fun, creative take on an action and strategy game. You play as a little robot name, McDROID and it's your goal to heal your planet by planting trees while defending your shuttle against the aliens with a vast array of weapons, healing devices and robot factories.

The game features a single player mode as well as a drop-in/drop-out co-op mode where you can recruit your friends to help you save the planet. The game features include:

  • Modular weapon robot: mount weapons and factories on your back and fight hands-on or plant them on defensive turret mounts and let the turtling begin
  • Bliss/corruption game mechanic: the ground will amplify or deplete you depending on its condition
  • Mutation: don’t leave these strawberries lying around for too long, also certain monsters transform your strawberry plants into lethal bomb trees.
  • Coop: help your friend complete the story missions or play in an arena mode designed for four players.
  • Challenge: As you complete each story level you unlock the challenge and nightmare modes. Your weapons, gold (and unfortunately also any mutated crops) persist through these levels - no turret left behind.

The game will release on December 20 for Windows phone.
