Babel Rising has gamers taking on the role of God in a game based on the biblical story of the “Tower of Babel”. As God, you see men building a tower to climb to the lofty heights of heaven. Finding mankind arrogant and impudent, God (you) uses his power to destroy the tower and a few men, just to show them.
The game is a beefed up console version of the popular iPhone game. Some of the new features include 3D graphics and motion control via Kinect and PS Move. The game comes with 15 single player missions and four different game modes. The game play is something of a reverse tower defense game. As God, players unleash elemental attacks based on fire, water, earth, and air. These attacks include fireballs, tornadoes, and meteors. The game is also supposed to include competitive and cooperative multiplayer modes.
Babel Rising launches today, June 13, for PC, Xbox 360, and Playstation 3.
