Defence Grid: The Bargaining

Normally we save our excitement about temporarily cut-priced games for our weekly Saturday bargain bucket post, but this one's a little bit special. Both Jim and I are devout admirers of sparkly indie tower defence game Defense Grid: The Awakening, but whenever we've written about it previously we've bemoaned its surprisingly high price. Get it under a tenner, we cried. Now there seems to have been some sort of glorious overcompensation...

This excellent and satisfyingly explosive game is currently a ludicrously cheap $5/£3.50. That's basically nothing, so go get! It may not boast anywhere near as many turret types as Plants vs Zombies - and certainly nothing to inspire the love that macho Tall-Nut does - but it's far more challenging and doesn't make do with just 5 level layouts. Splendid narration/story, too.
