The race held in Bataan last year was dubbed by TRIMAG Asia as the most prestigious triathlon event in the Asian region and by many as the “World’s Toughest Race” because of its challenging and hilly courses. This year, the Yellow Cab Challenge team will make it even more exciting and tougher. After all, the Challenge Family franchise is renowned for its organized and safe races, and its choices of beautiful destinations, while giving participants the opportunity to compete at the highest levels.

Archers Vs. Aliens

Archers vs. Aliens is an innovative puzzle game that takes inspiration from the tower-defense genre. Protect your kingdom from a mob of otherworldly creatures!

The objective of the game is to create a path for aliens to follow and eradicate them while they are there. But the challenge lies with how this can be accomplished. Road tiles need to be arranged for the paths to be created while upgradable towers shoot the enemies down. Set in the medieval period, the game comes with an epic music theme and crisp sound effects.

Besides, Archers vs. Aliens is an engaging mental sport that gets more and more exhilarating the further in a player goes. It tests your focus and induces your creativity. The challenges should not be underestimated.

Angel jokes, “Players become better multitaskers, are sharper, and are more creative after playing the game.”
