Review Defense Matrix: Alien Invasion

Brandon Girod
Lots of base building options, tons of upgrades, loads of bad guys to take out
Poor audio, generic artwork, level design was meh
Defense Matrix: Alien Invasion for Android is a tower defense game where you play as a human officer that has been appointed as the commander of the ninth legion to protect Planet 51. Planet 51 is full of mines and pure energy crystals - basically a resource gold mine. As a result, aliens launch an invasion to grab some of the resources. It your job to keep them out.
I’ll be the first to say that in the looks and sound department, this game has a lot of shortcomings. Heck, even some of the controls and UI can be a nuisance. But for some reason, I found myself still playing the game well after I had already explored everything the game had to offer. When it comes down to it, despite its shortcomings, it’s still just a fun tower defense game.
Like most TD games, you’ll go through level after level, defending enemies from taking your crystals. There are three difficulties for each level, and all you need to do is make sure all of your crystals are safe. You’ll earn cash based on your performance and these can be used to upgrade your turrets outside of each level, though you can also upgrade your turrets mid-game.
Level design is really basic. Sometimes you’ll have multiple paths, but you get a ton of places to plant your towers, which are typically needed because levels can go on pretty long. The first level has 10 waves, the next had 20, and so on. Towers can be upgraded, which increase the distance they fire, how fast they fire, and how much damage they do, and you have several different tower types.
Defense Matrix: Alien Invasion is a very run of the mill tower defense game, but it nails that “just one more level” feeling I got when I first got in the genre. The sound quality is pretty poor, and can become so grating that I decided to just turn off the sound all together. But the gameplay is strong.

I need to earn 15 stars to unlock level 8 or to play in other modes or degrees of difficulty - but this is the first I've heard of stars, nothing in game tutorial. How on earth does one earn stars?
you must play on mode hard to win 3 star by level
