In Beware Planet Earth, you play as a farmer whose mission is to prevent Martians from stealing Barney’s cattle. Who is Barney? He’s the guy who locked himself in the outhouse and helps you keep his beloved “ladies” safe.
From the moment you start this game up you can see that the art style is heavily inspired by Popcap Games’ “Plants vs Zombies”, it’s almost like an interactive comic book with it’s bold character design and animation. The graphics on the title screen seem to be a subtle compliment towards the classic 1950’s Sci-Fi movies, you know the ones where those Martians come down to Earth in their shiny flying saucers and want to take over the world? Sounds kind of familiar..
The game doesn’t have any real voice acting to comment on either as all of the interactions between Barney and the player are done through speech bubbles and pop up text. This isn’t too much of a problem though since the conversations are usually just Barney updating you on his latest creation or giving you a few hints to keep his beautiful bovines away from the enemy.
