Eden to GREEN

It's always nice to see console developers try their hand at mobile games. It can breed cynicism when they create a game in an established genre like tower defence, but iNiS (with such games as Gitaroo Man and Elite Beat Agents in their catalogue) are no strangers to creating odd yet enjoyable play experiences. Eden to GREEN looks to continue this trend.

Now, even though the gameplay trailer below shows the game running on Android devices, it is also released for iOS and is available right now. Here's the gameplay video:

It's a war of plants and machines. The game sprouts an interesting mechanic where you can only plant new towers in the radius offered by others, limiting your reach. Who knows - it could be the sprucing up that genre needs. The fact that it's a free title published by Zynga is more than a little worrying, however.

I've just played this title, and I'm not exactly as impressed with it as I hoped to be.. There's a "pay to play" and "wait to play" system implemented; the plants you put down, no matter how strong they are, can get crushed in one hit by any enemy (whereas the enemy machines can take several hits- there's also no way to judge how far or where the enemy machines will move, to plan your plant-placing accordingly to conserve resources and keep them alive for as long as possible); there's been some crashes on my iPad 2; and the "early round bonus" that's put in each level for completing it in as few moves as possible is almost a bit pointless since its usually down more than halfway by the time you've completed a level... I'd give it a 3 out of 5. It's cartoony and fun, but it's kind of restrictive in what it does.
