Creeper World 2 is a game with both real-time strategy and tower defense elements. Creeper World 2 thrusts you into the 14th millennium fighting an enemy that flows and oozes through the terrain. Employ advanced weapons, gravity manipulating repulsors, wormhole like rifts, and your own wit against this never yielding enemy. Excavate terrain, unearth techs, crystals, remnants and other artifacts. Face a new mechanical enemy that employs gravity manipulation against you.
Much like in the previous version of the game, players main enemy is the creeper an ooze like substance which destroys anything it touches. However in this installment of the game instead of a top-down view you get a side view as you dig underground tunnels to destroy buried emitters. Player infrastructure no longer requires connections as a wireless packet distribution system has been introduced. The overall feel to the game stays the same but the Creeper World 2:Redemption is filled with new units and enemies.
The story in Creeper World 2 consists of 20 unique missions. With the danger of imminent extinction averted, humanity thrives again. As a commander of one of the mighty Liberation Ship, you set out to free the galaxy of the creeper once and for all. However an even more sinister enemy lurks in the depths of space, and attempts to undo all that exists.
The game features 10 bonus maps to be completed after the campaign, each features a unique challenge and reqires a different approach.
The game has a separate map editor that must be downloaded and installed. There is an issue with the certificate. That will cause installation to fail. A description of the workaround is here: Adobe AIR and Adobe Flash Player Team Blog (as archived by the Internet Wayback Machine).
Many hints and tips are available on the Knuckle Cracker forums. The Custom Maps page here also have a few random, recent items.
