This week in PlayStation Home, Killer Plants from Outer Space invades, VEEMEE is sharing their 3D Printer with everyone, Hovercars zoom in from JAM Games, and Home Tycoon is offering a new sale!
Fuzzy Logic – Killer Plants from Outer Space
Get ready to do battle with the genetically spliced Killer Plants, created by your greatest enemy...your wife!
From the creators of Savage Moon comes Killer Plants from Outer Space: a new reverse tower defense strategy game for Playstation Home. Take on the role of Professor Fred Jean, bio-mechanical engineer extraordinaire, to overcome the hoards of killer plants skilfully created by Ginger, your enemy and wife. You have one advantage over Ginger; you can spawn up to 18 different creature combinations, each with special abilities and functions. On a mission to find new subjects for their gene-splicing, bio-mech manipulations, Fred and Ginger Jean, husband and wife, crash their spaceship. Stranded on opposite ends of the Crab Nebula, they both determine to prove their case. Fred befriends the local fauna, instantly adding to and enhancing their natural defences. Ginger splices plant DNA, flora already adapted for fighting...and winning! For more information on this exciting new game, check out this forum thread, highlighting the break-down, strategy, tips and tricks.
