It's rare that a tower defence game can really get the adrenaline flowing. Most are too simple, with the set waves and paths leading to climaxes that are utterly inevitable.
Cubemen 2 is different. It prides strategy over predetermination, and is all the more exciting for it.
There's more than a hint of Frozen Synapse in the stark visuals and waypoints, too, and while Cubemen 2 never reaches those heights it's still an entertaining, tactical defence game that's as much about outthinking your opponent as it is spamming out powerful units.
It might lack a little glitz and glamour, but Cubemen 2 is a satisfyingly deep tactical shooter all the same
