Previews Strategy News iPhone Apple iPad Action

Cosmonaut Games are at it again with a brand new title for the iPad and iPhone, Inkub. The title rolls off the tongue well but I am sure you want to know a little more about the game itself. Inkub is a unique strategy/action game putting players in the role as an employee of Inkub, a company that maintains and preserves species thanks to genetic engineering and high-level technology. Mixing genes from existing species, extinct and human, Inkub seeks the artificial creation of carbon based organisms to avoid their disappearance.


INKUB has a spacecraft navigating through different systems to offer their help to other civilizations with problems. It is in this spacecraft´s process plant where the embryos start their creation inside accelerated growth plasma incubators. However, bacteria, parasites, and other species that have evolved for years and live in the plasmatic liquid constantly threaten the growth of these embryos. The objective is to ensure the growth of said specimens, eliminating the threats. INKUB has
perfected defense systems within the incubation plants that must be used to end all threats and preserve the developing species.

Inkub is like a tower defense game where you must defend incubator containing a growing specimen with different weapons and powers that will help you destroy, pause, or block these enemies. These threats will try to enter the incubator through the Plasma tubes that connect it with the life-giving energy that makes them grow.

Each of the enemies will have special features (speed, resistance, range) and, likewise, the weapons and blockers will have other features (damage, range, speed…). A total of 8 different weapons will be available, all of them upgradeable, which you will obtain as you advance through the 40 rounds that make up the game. The whole system is sustained by energy. Therefore, using that energy, you will be able to acquire and upgrade all of the available weapons. You can obtain energy by constantly improving the energy cells that appear on each round.

      It sounded neat until “tower defense” game. Don’t really care for those to much, unless I can play them with friends. I’m no good on my own. Even then I get overwhelmed easily and end up quitting really soon after starting playing.
