  • Summary: Chaos has broken out at the farm! Aliens are invading and you need to get your bovines in the barn as fast as possible.

    ** Named TUAW.com's Daily App! **

    Cows vs Aliens, the newest game from XMG Studio, has a fun, unique multi-touch interface to squeeze as many cows through the barn
    doors as possible.

    Watch the clock! If you're too slow it's game over for you, cowboy. And you'll soon learn that some beefy beasts are more valuable than others. And the more heifers you herd at one time the higher your multiplier.

    These Aliens are sneaky, make sure you keep them out of your barn or they'll take off with your herd.

    Game Center integration will have you battling it our for top score and top multiplier.

    So get your chaps on and rally your critters. The future of the herd depends on you.

    Manages to show a lot of complexity in its gameplay thanks to the inclusion of multi-touch controls and you might just have some fun while herding cows as well.

    Cows vs. Aliens does exactly what a casual iPhone game does best. It's very simple to get into but it'll keep you playing for longer than you'd expect of such a basic idea.

    If I had to come up with one negative about Cows vs Aliens, it would be that it's really just a one-trick pony.

    Cows Vs Aliens won't give you hours of entertainment, but it offers a quick hit of fun whenever you have a moment to spare.

    Cows vs Aliens is a fun little casual game that can drag you in like a hurricane. It does however lack content, and the one game mode available is not enough.
