Get Off My Lawn! Game Review



As of lately +Steam brought a new free to play game to players worldwide. This game is called Get Off My Lawn! In the beginning of the game Murray and his dog are asleep on the couch when something mysterious arrives. When he opens the door he finds himself greeted by a blue alien who is trying to make peace and say hello by giving him a gift.
 
Isn't this little guy cute?
Unfortunately for this alien race, Murray is not having it. As the game begins you find yourself on the porch playing as Murray watching his lawn with his shotgun as more aliens try to approach him. The objective of the game is quite simple, shoot the aliens (poor little guys) and keep them from reaching your porch. 

During the game you will shoot the aliens and try your best to keep them away. Each time you recieve orbs that are worth different amounts. In the bottom right hand corner are three advantages, I like to call them lifelines; Cane Time, Infuriate, and Soundwave. These can also be purchased in the shed (main menu) to empower Murray even more. The objective is clear, keep the aliens from reaching the porch, but the more times you do well the higher your multiplier.
 
 
As each level progresses the little blue guys get more difficult to control. They have vests that have rocket packs. They move before you can shoot, causing you to miss. Some of them are stronger than others and take a lot of bullets.

If for some reason they do reach your porch Murray has three lives before he is abducted and the game ends. Your orbs do turn into money however which allows you to buy upgrades for your weapons and home. These upgrades do come in handy as the game progresses.  I've struggled to get past level 7 myself  - I'm hoping to get some of these upgrades soon!
 
I've noticed since I started playing this I can't seem to stop. It's just a fun little time wasting game and it's great for hand eye coordination. I tend to use space and the arrow keys rather than the mouse. It's easier and I feel like I have way more control. I'm really having a lot of fun with it and between it and +Plants vs. Zombies I'm having a lot of fun playing these tower defense games.

For a little tower defense game this is a really fun game and offers achievements (bragging rights) for those who own the game. Looking for the game to play? Download the steam client here, and the game here. The game is free and who doesn't like free games?


Are you a fan of tower defense games?

    1. You should! I'm having a blast. Plus like I said it's a free game, and the client is free too. If he downloads it he'll have access to many other computer games available through Steam. The possibilities are endless.

  2. Ha this fun mindless games are a great way to pass the time while waiting around for appointments or killing that last 5 minutes of your break when you refuse to return to work a minute earlier than you have to.

  3. The theory of the game sounds like fun, I like time management games, or games that you have to race the clock to show off your skills. Sounds like something my boys would like to play.

  4. This is cute! My daughters had a Sega game - Zombies ate my neighbors or something it was called - and it looked a lot like this one, though the graphics weren't nearly as good. It was a favorite of mine to play with them because I'm terrible at video games and it was easy!
