Pelfast Announce Bionic Swarm, An Upcoming Expansion Pack For Comet Crash

Pelfast have revealed the first expansion pack for Comet Crash. Bionic Swarm is set to come out in November and it brings 16 new levels and 10 battle maps to Comet Crash. Pelfast have released new screenshots and a trailer for the Bionic Swarm expansion showing a couple of the new maps, new units, and new enemy units.


Press Release

Redwood City, CA, October 25, 2010 -- Pelfast, a critically acclaimed independent developer, today announced Comet CrashTM: Bionic Swarm, the first official expansion pack for the innovative and popular downloadable PlayStation 3 tower defense title Comet Crash. The highly anticipated expansion will collide with the PlayStation Network throughout Europe in November to deliver players an armory of enhancements to take the fight to the alien-infested comets swarming toward the home world. The Bionic Swarm expansion adds over 50% more content with new gameplay features, 16 new levels, and 10 battle maps across two new environments. Comet Crash: Bionic Swarm will be available for North America and Europe in the PlayStation Network store.

The original Comet Crash, created by Pelfast’s dynamic three-person team, won critical raves and player popularity with its fresh approach to the tower defense genre, allowing players to attack the enemy as well as defend their base, winning GameSpot’s Best Original Downloadable Console Game award for 2009 and Editor’s Choice Awards from IGN and GameSpot.

In Comet Crash, players must use everything at their disposal, including an array of high-tech weaponry and their own strategic brawn, to stop the rush of enemies from destroying their base. Unlike traditional tower defense games, players must then rally their own forces and launch offensive strikes against the alien threat, bringing real-time strategy to a new level by blending classical tower defense gameplay with offensive counterattacks and dynamic AI.

Bionic Swarm ups the ante with new levels, maps, and environments that challenge players to find new strategies to overcome behemoth swarm creatures, kamikaze drones, and even long-range nukes.

Players will find they need fresh tactics to solve these new levels, and new features such as enhanced research upgrades and nuclear silos, provide a stellar reason for fans and newcomers alike to launch back into the cosmos.
