Xbox LIVE Indie shooter charging you with the defence of an entire planet.


CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa, Dec. 8, 2009 -- Willow Ridge Software's commercial release of Guardian is now available on Xbox LIVE Indie Games. Take command of an orbiting defense satellite in this action-packed planetary defense shooter. Blast away at waves of incoming asteroids and crafty aliens before they break through your shields and damage your home world. Scavenge powerful weapons from vanquished alien ships and turn them against your foes. Endless levels provide an ever increasing challenge. How long will you survive?

Guardian's challenging single player mode will not only test your reflexes, but also your ability to quickly react and plan defensive strategies. Local cooperative play with up to four players lets you face these same challenges with your friends. Guardian also features four difficulty levels, automatic game saves, and local and global high scores tracked for each of the difficulty levels. Check out the trial game now on the Xbox LIVE Indie Games marketplace, or purchase the full game for 240 Microsoft Points.
