Destructive Creations is back with IS Defense, a game with satisfying gameplay and unyielding explosions that’s not as easy as it seems. This is also one of those games that could easily be translated to mobile or a VR game, it has many more applications than just being a PC game. IS Defense is a side-project and the developer’s statement about current affairs in the world today, and where things might be heading. Whether that comes to light or not, we’ve got this entertaining piece of quasi-fiction to kill with mind-numbing ease.
IS Defense is a game set in politically fictional year 2020 – where the expansion of ISIS went out of control. They took over all of Northern Africa, spreading their genocidal understanding of the world’s order. Strongly armed, vast in numbers and prepared for everything, the Islamic State is launching the invasion against Europe over the entire Mediterranean Sea. The player takes on the role of NATO’s stationary machine-gun operator, deployed to defend the shores of Europe. His task is to blast as many of the invaders as possible, until his glorious death. To do so, he has at his disposal NATO’s support forces, his machine gun and a rocket launcher. During the progress of this heroic defense, he gets the opportunities to upgrade his gear, his body and army rank, which affects the efficiency of his support. This game is our side-project and is our personal veto against what is happening in the Middle East nowadays. Moreover, it is also an attempt at resurrecting a pretty dead genre of games like “Operation Wolf” or “Beach Head” in a state of the art and modern adaptation.
