[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - Mobile Force has announced that Pew Pew Land II - The Ultimate Defense Game, is now free for a limited time. The game is the follow up to Pew Pew Land, the critical and commercial smash hit that re-imagined the Tower Defense gaming genre on iOS, with over 300k downloads. Featuring 14 unlockable Pew Pew Weapons and 5 Special Abilities, players must destroy 12 different Creeps before any reach the end of the maze. The advanced game engine enables each of the weapons deployed by the player to automatically swivel, aim, reload, and fire at the waves of advancing Creeps. The update, with Arcade and Endless modes, adds Game Center integration, where players can compete for achievements and high scores via interactive, online leaderboards.
Played in portrait mode on a gameboard grid measuring 9 x 14, each square on the board is terrain (can be filled by one weapon), occupied terrain (contains an obstacle), or maze (the path the Creeps take from their start point to their end point). Players must strategically place weapons in inventory on available squares so that Creeps will be attacked as they come in to range, while they remain in range, and as they move out of range. Each cartoon-character Creep has its own speed of travel through the maze and its own level of resistance to weapon's fire. Each Creep has a small horizontal bar above them as they move forward, which acts as a thermometer indicating the Creep's weakening defenses. When the thermometer is completely red, the next hit destroys the Creep.
Just as the Creeps come in different sizes, move at various speeds, and have their own resistance to incoming fire, the Pew Pew Weapons each have their own characteristics, differing in cost, firepower, range, recycling time, and type of projectile. Weapons are rated from 1 - 10 on a 3-part scale: Damage, Range, and Speed. There are four levels of playing difficulty, and each level can be re-played at any level. Selecting, placing, and purchasing the right Weapons is the challenge on each of the game's 100 levels that are spread over five different Game Worlds: Forest of Illusion, Rush City, Snow Island, Lost Desert, and Angry Volcano.

Pew Pew Land II sets a high standard for competing Tower Defense games, as it allows continuous, simultaneous, high-speed action at every level. Players may enable Fast Forward at any time to quickly discover the effectiveness of their strategic defenses. Counters provide real-time readout of points, lives, money, and waves. Each weapon has its own animated fire and impact, producing a symphony of mayhem on the gameboard. While a wave of Creeps travels together at the same speed, another wave traveling much faster can travel through and past the first wave. Single, Giant Creeps create special defensive challenges, and there are diverse Boss Level battles to be won.
