Battle for Plangoria

BATTLE FOR PLANGORIA is an original single-player game developed by John Hanley created with GameMaker: Studio for the Windows Operating System.


STORY

The planet of Plangoria is about to be attacked! Plangoria's core is rich with multinite, a rare substance that produces powerful energy and is the planet's life-force. The Zerelions from the neighboring planet of Zerel want to use the multinite for evil purposes. They intend to blow up the planet and harvest the multinite from space. To defend the planet the Plangorians constructed a powerful orbiting cannon capable of vaporizing anything that comes within its range. You must help the Plangorians fend off 29 days of relentless attacks. If the Zerelions are able to reach the planet's core, it will explode and millions of lives will be lost.
