A tower defense-style game, Shannon is all super-heroed up and ready to protect her man, KISS star Gene Simmons, from a full on invasion of deranged, demented groupies.

Shannon Tweed's Attack of the Groupies brings rockstar style to the tower defense genre

Shannon was approached by the developer, GoJii games, with the concept and it seemed like the perfect fit. Based on the real-life challenge of living with a famous rockstar, Attack of the Groupies lets Shannon unleash a little cartoon-style justice on cougars, slugs, beauty-queens, and bimbos, including all the over-the-top, explosive weapons and effects you'd expect.

Attack of the Groupies features voice overs from Shannon and her daughter, Sophie Tweed-Simmons. There are power ups to unlock, extra characters (you can even get Shannon's sister, Tracy, via in-app-purchase), and behind-the-scenes bonus content.

Help Shannon keep the demented groupies away from KISS legend Gene Simmons with weapons, upgrades, and the power of a celebrity wife unleashed!

I've always liked the Simmon's family. Had the pleasure of meeting Sophie at a charity event and she was incredibly humble. Good people, them.

The only thing that would have made this interview better (well, besides if it was a tag team with Tracy too) would have been Rene in Gene's makeup!!!

How do you play this game? I don't understand what I should be doing on the screen. All I can do is plant trees & some kind of gun. Nothing else.
