    Gods vs Humans announced for Wii

    Video game and comic publisher Zallag has announced its latest Wii title Gods vs Humans, which will be available exclusively through WiiWare. Goofy god characters from Norse, Egyptian, Greek-Roman and Japanese mythologies and players use their powers to defeat the humans (peons) with their attempts to build a tower by collapsing the building’s floors and generally wreaking havoc on the mere mortals. Gods come in 16 different flavours including the popular Hades, Ra, Fujin and Thor. Each mythology will have its own character classes with powers to match. Peons also work in a class system, requiring builders and workers for construction as well as priests. The animation reminds us of Loco Roco and the strategy game play perhaps of Boom Blox.
