Defend the Heavens - Gods vs. Humans Preview
If you’ve ever wanted to take on the role of a god and see how you size up taking on a bunch of humans, then you won’t have to wait much longer. A new title called Gods vs. Humans is on its way to WiiWare, and it will allow you to take on the role of several different mythological gods in an attempt to stop gangs of pestering humans from invading the heavens and wreaking havoc.
All in a Deity’s Work
Gods vs. Humans is a strategy game that will require you to protect the heavens (and yourself) from mobs upon mobs of defiant humans. These rebels have decided to get confrontational and have united to build massive towers that will help them reach you. As a god, you must make decisions to keep them away from you. If you choose to obliterate the tower they’re building, then they’ll get especially aggressive and start harboring negative feelings toward you. You might be saying, “I’m a god! What do I care?”, but the decisions you make and how you handle the pesky humans will also directly impact the range of your powers.
If people don’t believe in you, then your powers will drastically decrease. This means you must choose your actions strategically. Maybe you can take out a human or two every once in a while, but don’t set all of your believers on fire. You’ll need humans to have faith in you, so you’ll have to occasionally conjure up something that will restore that faith. Want to create a pretty female to distract some of those humans? Maybe you want to perform a powerful attack that will both damage the humans’ tower and create a majestic light show in the sky. You can do these things, and they’ll yield positive results.
16 Mythical Gods
You’ll be able to play as 16 different deities in the game. Osiris the Egyptian god, Jupiter the Roman king of the gods, and Amaterasu of Japanese mythology are just three of the entities that will be present in the game. (Oh, and if you’re wondering, Amaterasu will not be in wolf form like she was in Okami.) Each of these gods and goddesses will have their own sets of powers, and they’ll be able to utilize them in the game’s 60 stages.
Get Rid of Those Annoying Humans
Publisher Zallag’s take on the tower defense genre will launch next week on WiiWare. The game’s colorful look and quirky visual style are meant to provide a lighthearted approach at the war between man and god. If the gameplay is solid and addictive, this title may very well be a tower defense-like game worth downloading. You can get your hands on Gods vs. Humans for 1,200 Wii Points on Monday, November 8.
