Fruit Flavored War
A few of you might remember Polish developer Infinite Dreams, responsible for such titles as Explode Arena, Super Miners, Sky Force, and Shoot the Birds. Those of you who are fans of the developer might be excited to know that they've got another game on the horizon - Jelly Defense!
The premise of Jelly Defense is simple. You take the side of a group of happy little creatures called Jellies. These Jellies are being invaded by an angry group of Jelly forces. Your objective is to use Jelly towers to stop the angry Jellies from conquering and enslaving your Jellies. In order to save the planet Diploglobe, you will have to use your wits and strategize to push back the fierce invaders.

Jelly Defense is a fairly standard tower game - there are 20+ levels for you to battle through, 10 different types of towers, 8 different power-ups, and a plethora of different enemies to fend off. As is the case with any tower defense game, tower placement is key - put down the wrong tower, and you'll be left to watch helplessly as your foes march straight to your base like they're out for a Sunday stroll.
So far, you may feel I'm describing a run of the mill game, but don't worry. Jelly Defense is anything but. There are two aspects that set Jelly Defense apart from all the other tower defense games out there. First off, it's actually got a very well-thought out story. The game is set in the same world as Infinite Dream's Jelly Chronicles, Jelly Invaders, and Jelly Puzzle games, all of which the developer has implied were simply "leading up" to Jelly Defense. I'll let you folks learn about the world's backstory on your own - that's half the fun.
Second, there's the art style. The closest parallel I can draw to Jelly Defense is that it looks like someone combined Raving Rabbids with Wallace and Gromit and then proceeded to add about 50% more color. It's unique, vibrant, and very easy on the eyes.

The developers have a Jelly Defense web page where they're accepting votes in order to decide what the price of the game is going to be, so swing by and give them your two cents on the matter!
Jelly Defense is set to launch on Android and iOS on September 29, 2011.
