Defend the Core – It’s a Matter of Concentration

According to the Big Bang theory, the expansion of the universe as we know it resulted in the formation of matter and antimatter. In Defend the Core, an arcade game by TeamDNA, matter and antimatter become your playthings as you strive to keep the core alive for as long as you can. The team says that Defend the Core was born out of a need to bring a fresh, fast-swiping game into a market saturated with one-tap titles.

Gameplay is characterized by a simple swipe mechanic that players must use to keep matter (colored blue) away from the core. Matter will continuously respawn, putting players’ concentration to the test. In contrast to matter, antimatter is your friend and will keep the core alive for longer. There are black holes to discover, and new, hidden elements players can use to improve their overall score. Defend the Core sports an original soundtrack, unlockable skins, and (much to my delight) the word ‘supercalifragilisticexpialidocious’ as an Easter egg.
