Creeps in Sol Survivor take preset paths from a spawn node to a colony. The player must defend the colony by placing turrets and by calling in support abilities from orbit. As the player cannot force the creeps into a maze, turrets must defeat creeps as they walk by. Turrets are capable of interfering with and slowing down creeps, in addition to damaging them. Support helps to finish off creeps or to keep creeps in range of turrets longer to maximize effect.
