Excerpt: The Playstation store has been home to many addictive titles throughout the last year such as Wipeout HD and The Last Guy. FluffyLogic and Sony Computer Entertainment have released a title in the tower defense genre entitled Savage Moon.
Summary: First and foremost, Savage Moon is a “tower defense” game. It’s actually quite a good one, but there’s nothing here to woo players who just can’t get into this type of title. That being said, there are oodles of bug-splattering goodness packed into this little gem, and the price makes it almost...
Conclusion: For a while, Savage Moon is wildly successful in its goals; it creates a fun and attractive looking niche title, and then it flourishes in the crucial, brain wrecking essentiality of a highly stressful but ultimately satisfying genre.

Most of the time, it's fast-paced and challenging, giving you a real sense of achievement as your carefully laid turrets of mass destruction wreak havoc on your insect...
Pros: Good variety of weapons, defenses, and insect enemies, Hectic pace, Controls are easy to pick up, Challenging difficulty
Cons: Lots of trial and error, Dumb tower AI, Wonky camera, Bland-looking environments
Conclusion: While not nearly as addictive as PixelJunk Monsters, FluffyLogic has done a hell of a time making a tower defense game that is uniquely their own. If you've still got the itch to repel waves of enemies, don't hesitate to jump on this one. It's good stuff.
Excerpt: Savage Moon is a downloadable Tower Defence game available on the Playstation Network, and is the first foray into console gaming for its developer, FluffyLogic. Savage Moon entrusts the player with the task of defending a mining base on a living asteroid, called an Imoon.
Excerpt: Savage Moon, from little known Bristol developer FluffyLogic, is about as good as it's going to get for just over six quid on PSN. It's also perhaps the most aptly named game ever. All 12 levels are set on moons, and it's absolutely savage. There you go. End of review. Only joking.
