The mining site of Slippy Toad’s uncle, Grippy Toad, is under siege! Set in the Star Fox sci-fi universe, the frantic strategic action game Star Fox Guard challenges players to defeat waves of rampaging robots via hi-tech wall-mounted cameras. Planning is key: set up 12 cameras in tactical spots on the stage, then use them to find and blast away enemies! Stay alert because you never know what menace might show up in your next mission.
The game includes about 100 stages, but players can also create their own stages by editing the placement of enemies and uploading their levels online.
•Your goal is to stop a robot invasion using a security system of 12 cameras as your last line of defense. If the enemy reaches the core of your base, it’s game over.
•The GamePad displays a top-down view of your base, camera placements and most robot locations. However, some robots are only visible on the TV screen.
•The TV screen displays all 12 camera feeds simultaneously, but you can only control one camera at a time.
•Once the invasion begins, you’re able to fire laser beams using a security camera. Find enemies by expertly switching among the 12 cameras on the GamePad.
•As the game progresses, things become quite hectic, and it can be difficult to keep track of the onslaught of enemies infiltrating your base. This is where the audience comes in. People watching on the TV screen can assist you by yelling helpful tips. This intense game-play action, audience interaction and dynamic interplay between the TV and GamePad make Project Guard a unique game only possible on the Wii U console.
