Swamp Attack is a zany base defense game where you sit on your porch blasting all the critters that crawl out of the swamp.
A sludgy story
The idea of Swamp Attack is to keep the hoards of creatures at bay by tapping on them to fire. There are many levels to clear, as the action gets more and more intense. As is the norm with this type of game you'll need to upgrade your firepower and defenses by earning coins in the game, or by purchasing.
The choice of weapons in Swamp Attack is a little restrictive. You start with just a shotgun and must unlock the other ones as you go. You'll constantly need to upgrade the number of clips too, because the gators, turtles, mosquitos, and the like soon come thick and fast.
It's fair to say that Swamp Attack gets very repetitive, given that all you're doing is sitting on a porch blasting animals with a gun. Sure, the developer has tried to liven it up with UFO levels, quick missions and special stages, but it's still all the same thing really.
The controls in Swamp Attack couldn't be simpler - tap on an enemy to shoot it. This makes the game sound much easier than it is, though. The fact that there are three lanes of critters to fire at and that they come in huge waves at times means that you need to be tactical, using power-ups like TNT and molotovs tactically to minimize the danger.
The crazy cartoon graphics in Swamp Attack are designed to capture the atmosphere of the Deep South. The location itself is well realized and the selection of critters in the game is broad. It's the music that really sets the mood though, and the chilled out country soundtrack really makes you feel like you're out there on the porch on a lazy day in the Everglades.
You'll have a blast - for a while
Swamp Attack is a fun defense game with great country music. The shooting gets a bit repetitive, though.
