Real-time strategy is taken to a new level by blending classical tower defense gameplay with offensive counterattacks and dynamic AI. Defend your territory with a variety of weapons. Use specialized units to fight off attacks and rush your enemies with massive armies. Fight your way through action packed levels in the Campaign or challenge your friends in Battle mode.

Tower defense fans appreciate the simple yet addictive experience of building towers to defend from enemy waves. On the other hand, Pelfast loves the thrill of a massive offensive rush to demolish an enemy base, so they designed Comet Crash with both of these elements in mind. Finally, you can send massive swarms of your own troops to wreak havoc on the relentless waves of enemies.

Ahhh…sweet revenge!

In Comet Crash, your first priority is to defend your territory from an assortment of enemy invaders. For those of you new to tower defense gameplay, this involves strategically placing various weapon towers to destroy enemy units before they get to your base. To get the job done, Comet Crash provides a devastating arsenal of weapons, including Turrets, Pulsars and Bombers. Future space commanders will need to place each of these weapons strategically to slow the oncoming waves of enemy units. An effective tactician will need to draw on the strengths and weaknesses of their own weapons and units, but also of their enemies.

One of Comet Crash’s defining characteristics is actively bringing the fight to the enemies own front door — you must devise an offensive strategy. Comet Crash lets you choose between a variety of offensive units to create your own army. Each of these specialized mobile units has its own speed, strength and behavior. Once you have a massive army…ATTACK! By the way, remember that powerful Cell processor that you all have in your PS3? It’s for real. We cranked up the army cap to 1000 individual units per player for some seriously huge attacks. If all else fails, bust through the enemy defenses by destroying their towers. Choose to use simple brute force, devise a crafty offensive strategy, initiate land grabs, or use a combination of tactics to win.


In the Campaign, 1-3 players can fight through 28 action-packed levels. As you move through the Campaign you gain access to new technologies that add new strategies to your arsenal. It is up to you to find the most efficient way to spend your resources and to throw together first-class strategies to take down your enemy. Levels can be passed in many different ways so feel free to release your inner genius.

Battle mode allows you to play against your friends, supporting 2-4 players offline. The goal is simple: take out your buddies before they take you out!

In the upcoming expansion to Comet Crash, titled Comet Crash: Bionic Swarm, players must return to the stars and continue their fight against a tactically brilliant enemy force. Using everything at their disposal to change the tide of battle, players will unleash all-new swarm units to crush their enemies, all while turning the tower defense genre on its head. Bionic Swarm blasts the award-winning gameplay seen in Comet Crash to a whole new level with new stages, maps and enemy-crushing units. Players will need to devise all-new strategies to overcome behemoth swarm creatures, kamikaze drones and even long-range nukes.

One of the new battlegrounds players will explore is Gaia. A lush and savage landscape, Gaia is where enemy forces have been conducting experiments on their militant troops. Updated intel reveals that they have mastered technology that transmogrifies existing fighters into hideous and powerful swarm creatures.

Blasting past Gaia, players will encounter Kronos. Once a bustling metropolis and primary research station, Kronos has been recently invaded by an alien threat, transforming the once-prosperous research hub into a warzone. Players will need to prepare for a battle of epic proportions - to survive Kronos you must be cunning, stealthy, and strategic.

Comet Crash: Bionic Swarm will be available in Nov. 16/17 on the PlayStation Network store for US$4.99/€3.99.
