Windows 10 Review for Dummies
By Ivory_Soul
Posted on 08/11/15
After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

Get your filthy hands off my herring.

click to enlargeA kid-friendly and almost cloyingly-cute strategy game slated for release in late August, Defendin’ DePenguin is pretty much what its title suggests: a penguin-themed tower-defense game.

You probably already know the basic drill: pengie-style village, road full of twists and turns running through it, enemy animals start rolling into your territory to steal all your fish, various defensive tower mechanisms start to go up, and snipe-larity ensues. It’s a kid-friendly title, so the turrets are appropriately non-lethal - one of them cranks off snowballs. It's just enough powderpuff firepower to take down some of your smaller, less-determined enemies. Bigger enemies might require an actual, full, intact snowman to take them down…and yes, there’s a gun for that, too.

Nothing like a cold, sharp projectile moving at a hostile speed to cut through all that blubber. Resources permitting—it’s not clear at this stage if you’re spendin’ as well as defendin’ those fish—you can place up to 10 towers, but you might only be able to afford far fewer. As with some other tower defense games, you’ll have to option to have your protagonist pengie, Little Blue, personally man—er, penguin—individual towers for a little extra stopping power.
