Attack of the Earthlings

Attack of the Earthlings combines turn-based combat and stealth in a dark comedic single player campaign, where you the player, take control of the native alien race to defend your home world from the invading humans. Galactoil, a comically dysfunctional energy corporation, are hell-bent on harvesting the known universe for energy and will drill anything in its incessant quest to line its pockets with profit. However, their latest foray into energy exploration on Planet X13, has placed them into a bit of a pickle. The Swarmers, the native insectoid species, have another idea - to eat all the workers! You take control of the Swarmers, a highly aggressive insectoid species, who must convert human flesh into alien muscle, upgrade their units and even find the time to gatecrash a birthday party.

cute game but you are overly reliant on melee attacks and only one of your 6 units has a ranged attack though its the same range as the enemies. yes, you need to attack outside the enemies red cone (line of sight) but even then any attack results in a counter (you don't counter though) and all but 2 of your units will die in 1 hit. the main strategy is to distract guards as you try to sneak up on them and using group attack. the lack of strategy make gameplay a bit stale.
LEVELS are ok though there isn't a lot of them. they are somewhat large maybe about as big as an xcom level give or take.
UNITS there are 6 i've seen and 4 can be upgraded with 3 abilities. 1) first is you're main character that can eat bodies then spawn a smaller alien. if you lose her your dead. 2) is a bug type alien that can crawl into grates but its main purpose is to evolve into 1 of 3 other bugs using bodies you've eaten. 3) a spitter type that can learn some other range stuff like distract. 4) an armored bug that can take more than one hit (so 2 hits) and it hits a little harder. this one has a armor up ability and some nice attacks if upgraded. 5) a rogue like bug that can learn backstab (though you can only melee from the side or back, rarly you can front attack by using a door) 6) you can bug a none guards face. these things can distract but will mainly scout though some parts they will just get shot on site. using distract can also lead to them getting killed.
STORY? this is funny and the best part of the game.
OVERALL i feel its a decent game but the abilities do not lead to different strategies. you play the level how the dev set them up and you do not have much variation of what you can do.
