  • Alternate endings depend on your campaign strategy

Anomaly 2 is rated "T" for "Teen' by the ESRB and is available on Steam and the developer web site for $13.49 during the first week of its release. Afterward, it'll return to its $14.99 price.

Sanctum 2 (XBLA/PC)

In Sanctum 2, which features elements from the tower-defense and first-person shooter genres, players are tasked with protecting the oxygen-producing Cores from deadly aliens.

Key Features:

  • Tower defense: Create mazes and use towers to prevent the enemies from destroying the Cores
