New Game Combines Best Elements of “Tower Defense” Genre and Fantasy Card Games

PSP™ owners will get a taste of something new and addictive this Fall with the downloadable strategy title Creature Defense. Set to be published by Hudson Entertainment, the North and South American publishing arm of HUDSON SOFT, Creature Defense will take the best elements of both the growingly popular “Tower Defense” simulation game and add in card-based gaming fundamentals to create a new challenge in strategy games.

“Creature Defense comes along when Tower Defense games are taking off in prominence and fantasy card games are beginning to be integrated into videogames,” said Mike Pepe, director of marketing of Hudson Entertainment. “Strategy gamers will love the combination of these two popular gameplay aspects encapsulated into one challenging title.”

Creature Defense will place gamers in a variety of stunningly illustrated worlds where they will be tasked with defending their land from invading attackers. After creating a deck where players take into consideration the types, tolerability and elements of the enemy, the onslaught begins and continues until adversaries are defeated, or the land falls. Special skills and attacks are added to the player’s arsenal as the game goes along. With new levels and attributes to explore, as well as 50 types of Monster Cards drawn by well known illustrators available for download, Creature Defense is an ongoing adventure for strategic minded gamers.
