Swarm from Hot Head Games is a PlayStation 3 game that mixes some RTS elements into an action platformer. Players are in control of a bunch of Swarmites that must be moved from point A to point B so that they can be taken to Momma so that she can use their DNA to grow.
Hot Head Games (that’s their logo below and I’ve got to admit that head DOES look hot) can sum up this game for you, and they can sum it up gooood:
Swarm is an action-platformer from the game creators at Hothead Games. In Swarm you take control of 50 utterly fearless Swarmites and drive them through an intense, entertaining and often suicidal battle of survival. Run, bash, huddle, boost, stack, jump, push and throw your way through gauntlets of death and destruction in an attempt to collect valuable DNA and ensure that at least one Swarmite survives.
After that, and before getting the meat of the review (or steamed vegetables platter in case you favor a protein free regime), I can point you to our Developer Q & A with Hot Head Games so you get the full picture before I send you on ahead to glance at the little picture… or whatever needs to be said to continue with that comment.
Decided to stick around? Great! What’s my final review? BUY THIS GAME!
What, need more than that? Ok, just because you’ve asked nicely.
