Continuing the defense theme of a string of recent releases, Generic Defense Game takes a few select elements from tower defense titles and shooters, and then slaps on a thick coat of parody paint. Instead of fending off hordes of ghastly beasts from far-off fantasy lands, you will protect Pac-Man from ghosts, keep your lunch safe from insects, and defend ramen noodles with a machine gun. It's a very basic game with swappable elements that make the core gameplay ripe with entertainment.
Generic Defense Game is divided into eight sub-games, each with its own theme. The basic gameplay for each game is almost identical: use the left mouse button to fire at enemies and, if you're controlling a mobile shooter, the [WASD] keys to move. You also earn points during play to purchase weapon upgrades between levels. The differences lie in what you're defending, what you're defending it with, what you're defending it from, and the scenery around you. Blasting ghosts with a turret is essentially no different than shooting ants with bug spray, though one will likely be a bit funnier than the other.
A great feature of Generic Defense Game is that you can create your own generic defense game! Set the mode (shooter or turret), the enemy, and your starting weapon, then choose a special weapon, defense objective and set the map.
Generic Defense Game doesn't try to win you over with claims of new features or deep, unique gameplay. Instead it takes an already solid formula, breaks it apart, sprinkles on a little humor and turns you loose to have fun.
