This game is a variation of the original Anomaly: Warzone Earth modified for mobile devices. Controls have been adapted for touch screens, the campaign's missions, maps and story have been completely redesigned to extend the story of the original game. The commander's presence on the battlefield was abandoned, instead all actions are executed directly now: Your squad is in the center of the screen by default (though the view can be changed manually), items are collected by tapping on them and the hacker turret has new mechanics for touch controls.
Otherwise the game plays like it's sibling: it is a fast-paced reverse tower defense game where the player controls a single convoy and must lead it through cities infested by aliens. Players can change configuration of the convoy, change its path and use special abilities (repair, smoke, decoy and airstrike). Each mission has different goals and usually requires different strategies and convoy configurations.
