IMG Reviews Anomaly: Warzone Earth
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Inside Mac Games has posted a new review of 11 Bit Studios' Anomaly: Warzone Earth. The strategy game puts players in charge of an army needing to get past powerful defense towers set up by alien invaders.

Here's an excerpt from the review:

Enemies prove to varied and difficult enough to put up a good challenge. There are 6 different alien towers, ranging from a basic laser tower to the monstrous Behemoth, who can annihilate your squad in moments unless you lay down a smoke field or distract it with a decoy from the Commander. Two other towers stand out, one that disrupts your squad and makes them attack your Commander, and another which drains energy from your Commander and then sends out a burst of energy, regenerating every alien tower in the area. These will quickly ruin your plans unless you take care of them fast. The first time you encounter them makes for a tough difficulty spike, but once you get the hang of it you relish the challenge.

This is a game about flying through obstacles in a race against time. Will you make it through all twenty, dodging laser fire and a fatal collision, or will you crash and burn in the frozen air of outer space?

It's all up to you. Race!

Jeff Vogel Discusses Software Protection Methods
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 8 comments

Jeff Vogel has posted a new article on his Bottom Feeder blog. This time Spiderweb Software's popular RPG creator offered his opinion on the hotly debated issue of game piracy and how his mind has changed over the years about the best way developers can protect their products.

The system was confusing, and this wasn't helped by the fact that we were the only ones ever to use it. Oh, if only we could have back the countless hours spent explaining the system to confused parents. Countless more hours making new registration keys for people who switched computers or had to reinstall their OS. The weird system made us look unprofessional at best, deranged at worst. And, as a special bonus, it did exactly zero to stop people from pirating our game. Name a way to crack our registration system, and people did it a hundred times.

We stuck by this system for fifteen years. Might as well have just made a big pile of money and set it on fire. At least we would have gotten the warmth.

A year ago, I finally got fed up. New system. When you order our newest game, Avadon: The Black Fortress, we send you a serial code. Enter it, and you're up and running. Buy the game for the Mac and want to play it on Windows too? Enter the same key. Want to register your copy again ten years from now? Use the same key.

And the result of switching to a slightly less secure, infinitely easier to use system? Sales of Avadon are the highest of any game we've put out in years.
