Robocalypse: Beaver Defense is a tower defense video game developed by Ukrainian studio Vogster Entertainment for WiiWare, and a follow up to their Nintendo DS game Robocalypse. It was released in North America on May 31, 2010 and in Europe on June 4, 2010.[1]

Gameplay

The game revolves around a mutated beaver's campaign for revenge against the player. Like other tower defense games, players place defenses around their headquarters in order to sorde of robots. In addition, players can directly control a hero robot of their own in battle.[2]

Development

The plot was created by Jay Lender and Micah Wright, former writers for SpongeBob SquarePants who were also involved in the development of the previous game. The game was originally slated to support online play for up to four players, but this was later scrapped for the final release.[2]

Unlike its predecessor, the sequel would be rated Teen by the ESRB solely due to the suggestive appearance of a female character,[3] Constance Menzies, who resembles Flaxen Hayer in the first game.

Reception

IGN rated the game a 7.0 and felt it wasn't as strong as the original release on the DS. However, they still felt that fans of tower defense games would enjoy it.[4] Wiiloveit.com gave it a 22/30, and thought it was an "adequate tower defense game" sold for a "great bargain".[5]
