In the game you play as a mobile gun turret moving around a playing area. Llamas appear from all directions intent on your destruction. Llama can be killed by your guns, but appear in seemingly never end waves. There's a certain amount of skill in keeping on the move and avoiding being trapped in a corner.
The games also lets you to build various types of supporting defensive towers (shield, health, and slow), using the money you earn from mowing down llamas. The towers are built in predefined locations, but you can choose what type of tower to build. The trick here is to use the placement and mixture of towers to give yourself the extra boost need to avoid being over run by the rampaging llamas.
This first version of the game tests you across six levels, with cityscapes apparently based on post-apocalyptic New York, Rio, and Dubai. The game has good looking graphics, but much the charm comes from both the slightly off-the-wall concept and tried and tested game play. Well worth a download if you're looking for a weekend distraction.
