Humans vs Aliens is described as follows:
The fate of planet Earth lies within the hands of leagions of well-trained, multidisciplinary soldiers and one pitchfork-wielding hillbilly. Encroaching aliens must be slaughtered before they reach the villages in this tower-defense style game for your Android device.

Grunts vs. Hillbillies

Aliens creep onto the screen, slowly progressing forward. You must stop them before they reach your village border. Place an equally-matched human in its destructive path and watch as the battle ensues. Each soldier has a skill or weapon, from flamethrowers and pitchforks to attack helicopters. Use your most powerful humans only when you need them; they require the most energy.

Luckily, your booze-fueled hillbilly doesn't require any energy. He doesn't put up much of a fight either, but against an alien grunt--he'll get 'er done.

Blue energy orbs appear sporadically. As you collect them, your humans will become energized and ready for battle. Oil wells allow for more frequent power-ups but you must protect your wells.

No Land is Sacred

As you progress through five beautifully rendered U.S.-based locations, unlock more powerful humans and more threatening aliens. Tirelessly battle your way through aliens that do everything from cloak themselves to spit fire.

With OpenFeint, unlock 18 achievements and compare your scores with friends as well as the rest of the world. So, go save the world--and let everyone know about it.
Humans vs Aliens has a rating of 3.7 stars in the Android Market and 2.9 stars in the Amazon Appstore.

Humans vs Aliens is a tower defense game, and that could be why it's downrated in the both stores: folks are somewhat tired of those games. The name is an obvious homage / take-off on Plants vs. Zombies.
