Sometimes a game’s title is inscrutable, offering little to no clues about what you’ll find when you launch it. Goblins Rush is not that kind of game, as its launch trailer shows.

Close your eyes and point to a game in the Google Play Store, and chances are about 50/50 that you’ll find a game that uses the word ‘defense’ somewhere in its description. Goblins Rush follows this fine tradition, billing itself as a “horizontal defense” game. Your goal? Keep the goblins away from your Manacrystals. As you progress, you will be able to upgrade your abilities to take on smarter, faster goblins.

Unlike tower defense games, Goblins Rush is heavy on the action. Don’t believe me? Check out the launch trailer below:

Goblins Rush launches on Tuesday, January 29th. Are you planning on picking it up? Let us know in the comments below.
