Space Pirates and Zombies(SPAZ) kopen


“De ontwikkelaars hebben plannen om het spel in de toekomst nog verder uit te breiden, maar waarom zou je wachten? Het is nu al geweldig...”
9/10 – Atomic Gamer
“Space Pirates and Zombies is niet alleen een grote ruimte-actie-RPG in een open wereld, zoals Star Control, maar ook de zeldzame uitdrukking van zombies zoals in Dead Rising en Atom Zombie Smasher.”
A – Gameshark
“Het is een erg sterk spel dat klaarblijkelijk met passie is gemaakt en een goed voorbeeld is van de indie-renaissance die momenteel gaande is. In mijn ogen de beste manier om $ 15,- te besteden.”
90/100 – RTS Guru

Info over het spel

At its core, Space Pirates and Zombies is an action based, skill oriented, top down space combat game. It’s similar to the ones we knew and loved in years past, but now using full physics simulation and modern graphics for those oh so pretty explosions. But as you dig deeper, SPAZ becomes much more.
Instead of flying a single ship, you are in charge of an ever growing and evolving fleet, unlocking the rich tactical elements of SPAZ, all accessed at the touch of a button. Issue orders, change ships, apply fleet AI settings, all on the fly. At any moment the battle can change, and the Tactics Panel gives you the tools to make the battle turn in your favor.
As a layer on top of the action and tactics, we have a detailed technology and levelup system akin to what you would expect from an RPG. Learn to build new ships by destroying your enemies. Explore the galaxy to find components, use your hard earned research points to unlock their potential, and then customize every aspect of your new fleet.
Finally, there is the universe in which all this strife and adventure takes place. SPAZ features a persistent randomly generated Galaxy populated with story elements, factions, enemies, missions, items, to provide you with a unique experience each time you play. While you are struggling to survive, uncover the secret of an ever expanding Zombie infestation that spreads by establishing its own real time multi-tiered ecosystem.

Key features:

  • 33 ships to research, build, outfit and pilot.
  • 70 unique components to discover and customize your fleet’s performance.
  • Totally physics based combat system.
  • Fight Zombie infestations, battling a full zombie ecosystem comprising four stages of un-life.
  • Explore a persistent randomly generated galaxy containing hundreds of star systems.
  • Freedom to explore the galaxy and take on challenges at your own pace.
  • Aid, flee, or exploit the warring factions in each star system.
  • The unique event system lets the player change the balance of power in any star system
  • Carefully spend your hard earned research points on hundreds of upgrades across 15 categories.

SPAZ does almost everything right as a 2D arcade space shooter. The game is fun, features a considerably deep ship designer; as challenging as you wish it to be and it looks good. The low points are the dialogue, which is thankfully sparse; early balance (good luck getting anywhere if you choose to research beam weapons instead of cannons!); lack of information regarding the effectiveness of your ship design and, for some, though not for me, the control scheme. These issues, however, do not detract from the experience in a significant way. 8/10, looking forward to the sequel.

Wow. I've spend about 5 days straight playing this one, and I still hungered for more.

SPAZ, or Space Pirates and Zombies (And Bounty Hunters) feels unique. You've got a small fleet of spaceships, and your objective is to reach the center of the galaxy, in search of a fabled load of Rez, an exceptional element discovered in the future capable of being transformed into any metal you need - starting ALL THE WAY BACK from the edge of the Perseus arm, where Earth is currently situated. You can assume direct control of any of your ships at any time in the field - being able to switch back and forth at a moment's notice, while the AI takes care of your other ships for you. You also have a Tactics panel, from which you can evaluate the situation of the entire battlefield and give orders to your fleet, set action stances, order reinforcements, etc. You can also DESIGN each and every one of your ships - you can unlock different hulls, weapons, modules, you name it.

You'll find yourself dragged into a MARATHON once you get a hold of it. There's only one problem, though: the game is a bit grindy. The Milky Way is ENORMOUS, so there can be quite an expanse between your location and your objective in it. You'll find yourself battling through a load of star systems just to reach your next mission or unlock the newest upgrade, and that takes time and resources - most of which you'll be grinding out of mining stations/enemy fleets if you're careless. If it weren't for the grinding, this game would be perfect on my book. But still, it's VERY enjoyable.

Has a great story - but I don't want to spoil it. Play your cards right and the game will go easy on you. Screw up, and expect to spend a few hours grinding for Rez.

DEFINITELY recommend. You'll need some patience, though.

This game is one of the best games I ever played. The story is nice, simple and well made. But too short. At least they tried to expand it with missions between every story mission. The gameplay is also simple, but full of fun. The graphics are pretty awesome compared to a lot of other games. Nice details and animations. And all those little features. It's funny to see how people pop out of a shell. Too bad this game has no multiplayer. Would be much fun.
At least it offers long-term fun with some pretty achievements. And some of them are really hard.
And even if it becomes boring there are mods to expand the fun. Or you just generate a new universe and enjoy another run.
All in one it's totally worth the money.

Story: 7/10
Gameplay: 9/10
Graphics: 8/10
Physics&Mechanics: 9/10
Multiplayer: none
Achievements: 9/10
Long-Term Fun: 10/10

This is a rare gem. Next time I look at a space shooter game, this will be a comparison.
Your ships are fully customizeable, reactors, shields, engine, armor, weapons, you choose whether it'll be powerful but sluggish or nimble but less powerful.
It has upgrades, though higher leveled doesn't mean better - it depend on your playing strategy about how using it.
And of course it has lots of things to blast including starbases if you don't want to pay those upgrades.

SPAZ is one hell of an action & strategy game, with you taking command a small ship to eventually a large capital ship you'll be roaming the galaxy, attacking or working with 2 factions and even bounty hunters. Amazing game, if you're a fan of any strategy or top-down action shooters this is a must have!
