Weather the Swarm

Version 1.3.3.1

by keithjohnston
First published on 15th January, 2017

Weather the Swarm is a strategic game in which the player must construct unique turrets, barricades, and traps in order to hold off an invasion for as long as possible. Force your enemies to take the most difficult paths, skewer them with spike traps, riddle them with arrows, freeze them with unstable cryo-mass, and much more. Unlock abilities and research new technologies in order to ensure your defenses will hold. Dynamic and randomly generated enemies make it unlikely that two waves spawn with exactly the same composition. wave after wave will crash down upon you, but you must weather the swarm.

Notes:
- Zoom out to play in Ultra HD / 4K!
- The Leaderboard "Highest Wave Achieved" will only submit scores on normal difficulty or above upon defeat.
- This version of the game only uses .ogg audio files in order to meet Scirra's file size limit.

    I hope you enjoy my game, please let me know if you run into any problems, as it is not completely bug free.

    Patch: 1.3.0.0
    - Bunch of small bugs fixed
    - New turret properties panel, with fortify options
    - New tutorial

    Leaderboard up and running!

    Known issues:
    - After pathing is blocked, some enemies are not reverted to the start block. Additionally, enemy shadows become dislocated.
    - Sometimes a node on the infected turret console can double up. Simply close and re-open.
