What on Earth Is Planets Under Attack for PSN?

Posted by Sammy Barker


In this age of online connectivity, it’s rare that we don’t know about a game well in advance of its release – but Planets Under Attack slots directly under that curious category. The mysterious digital title was scheduled to get a demo on the European PlayStation Network a few weeks ago, but it never emerged. In spite of that, the download received a slew of themes and avatars as part of the most recent North American store refresh. So, what gives?

Well, despite bearing an uncanny resemblance to a dummy PSN title used in firmware update screenshots, the truth surrounding Planets Under Attack is significantly less exciting. The title is in development at Targem Games, the Russian studio responsible for the surprisingly solid Armageddon Riders. The strategy release – published by TopWare Interactive – sees you attempting to conquer planets in a slew of single-player and online missions that blend traditional swarm-based gameplay with tower defence. According to the developer, it will challenge "newbies and veterans alike".

The intergalactic head-scratcher's already available for both the PC and Mac in the UK, but there’s no word on a PlayStation Network release date. We’ve reached out to both Targem Games and TopWare Interactive in order to see if we can clear things up.

I don't know but can someone tell me where can I find my games after I download them I just downloaded rainbow moon and can't find it I'm at a loss

@Malic It probably didn't DL, based on my experience with 2 demos and the new crazy store layout which requires 6 click-thru's. OK, my bitching aside, it's probably under "Network" under "Download Management" if you are doing a Background DL and it hasn't finished DLing yet.

Glad to see I haven't been the only 1 at a loss for this game. Steam also has the game but no demo - I checked last week. This game looks like a cross between Mushroom Wars (which I love) and Eufloria (which I hate) so I really wanted that demo to see what's what.

Thanks for the help haven't had a chance to check it yet. What ever it was for rainbow moon was only 6kb I have no idea what it was but it can't be the whole game and it was $15
