Pelfast, a critically acclaimed independent developer, today announced Comet Crash: Bionic Swarm, the first official expansion pack for the downloadable PlayStation 3 tower defense title Comet Crash. The expansion will collide with the PlayStation Network throughout Europe in November to deliver players an armory of enhancements to take the fight to the alien-infested comets swarming toward the home world. The Bionic Swarm expansion adds over 50% more content with new gameplay features, 16 new levels, and 10 battle maps across two new environments.
The original Comet Crash, created by Pelfast’s three-person team, won critical raves and player popularity with its fresh approach to the tower defense genre, allowing players to attack the enemy as well as defend their base, winning GameSpot’s Best Original Downloadable Console Game award for 2009 and Editor’s Choice Awards from IGN and GameSpot.
In Comet Crash, players must use everything at their disposal, including an array of high-tech weaponry and their own strategic brawn, to stop the rush of enemies from destroying their base. Unlike traditional tower defense games, players must then rally their own forces and launch offensive strikes against the alien threat, bringing real-time strategy to a new level by blending classical tower defense gameplay with offensive counterattacks and dynamic AI.
