“Gli sviluppatori hanno intenzione di continuare ad espandere il gioco in futuro, ma perchè aspettare? È già magnifico da ora...”
9/10 – Atomic Gamer
“Mi basti dire che Space Pirates and Zombies non è solo un grande GDR d'azione open-world nella tradizione di Star Control. È anche una rara espressione di zombie appartenente alla schiera di Dead Rising ed Atom Zombie Smasher.”
A – Gameshark
“È un gioco molto solido che è ovviamente fatto di passione ed è un grande esempio del rinascimento indie che stiamo vivendo ultimamente. A mio parere, è una delle cose migliori che 15 dollari possano comprare.”
90/100 – RTS Guru

Informazioni sul gioco

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.

Bel giochino che regala alcune decine d'ore di gioco prima di finirlo. La strategia e la progettazione delle navi è importante per il proseguo del gioco (diverse volte mi sono ritrovato "vivo" per un soffio e ho dovuto passare del tempo a raccattare risorse facendo il minatore d'asteroidi) e bisogna imparare dai propri errori. La divisione in capitoli è efficace per rendere il gioco sempre un filo più variegato, anche se alla lunga la ripetizione delle missioni un poco stanca. La trama è carina ma niente di più, e ovviamente non è un gioco basato sulla storia. Unico neo la rigiocabilità: pur essendoci un generatore random di galassia, beh poteva pure non esserci, difficilmente ricomincerei d'accapo... ma direi che ci ho giocato a sufficienza ;-)
Preso scontato per pochi euro e ne sono pienamente soddisfatto.

Pros:

+ responsive tactical small fleet combat
+ fairly deep tech trees with a lot of variety
+ looks and runs great even on lower end hardware

Cons:

+ the XP grind is pretty steep, could have probably halved it

While the base concept of the game is cool, the overhead view gets old really fast. This of course means that everything in the game gets old really fast unfortunately.

I played this all the way through (offline) back in the day. It's strange because the shallow gameplay would normally cause me to give it a thumbs down, but there is something about this game that got me totally hooked and I've recently played it halfway through again. Now that I've come here to write a review I've discovered that SPAZ2 has just gone to early access and the video for it it making my heart thump already. Anyway, back to my review...

Cons (none of which matter to me)

The game universe is enormous but to be honest all a bit samey. You have to complete endless tasks to gain the technology and resources to upgrade your ships, but these tasks mostly involve battling enemies which is really the be-all and end-all of this game. In theory you're supposed to tailor your ships/weapons to the task at hand, but in practice it doesn't really seem to matter, you just equip the best weapons you can find and use them for everything. It's not the most intellectually challenging game.

Con (which does matter)

There is a storyline to this game, with an ending. After it had finished, to my dismay, I discovered that it was impossible to go back and play some more with the massive battleships I had worked for hours on end to build up. Bear this in mind before you tackle the final task, or make a data backup!

Pros

It's all about building bigger and better ships with more and more firepower and watching the battle mayhem. Especially towards the end of the game when huge battleships are blasting each other to smithereens it's a sight to behold, and the amazing thing is that all this glorious graphics action doesn't seem to lag or stutter at all, it's smooth as silk.

Now enough of this, I'm off to buy SPAZ2!

Call me a casual but . . . it seems like this game needs a little more instruction in the beginning. I would quickly get to a point where I would fulfill the tutorial objectives, but then after that have no idea what to do. I tried experimenting with no success, and the game didn't have the draw to encourage me to keep experimenting. There's no indication if you're doing the right or wrong things. At least with other games if you suck you die. Here, you just kinda float around.

I tried to like this game, but after hitting a brick wall on a few different playthroughs relatively quickly, I shelved it.

Fun simple space game. Control 2-4 ships of different sizes which you can customize a little (i.e. choose weapons and features according to specific spots). Each system basically has an oppressive government group and rebellious civilian group. They’re relationship with you depends on the system and your actions. You may enter one system where the government loves you and the civilians hate you, then move into the next system where the gov. hates you and the civies love you, then the next system they both love you. You actions in one system does not affect the others. The missions in each system will affect your relationships in that system so be careful. Unique game, fun to play.

Pros
- Each game is randomly generated so your experiences will always be different.
- Simple to learn/play

Cons
- The story doesn’t necessarily enthrall you but its there.

Gran bel gioco, sia per quanto riguarda la grafica, anche se 2D, sia per le meccaniche, che vanno da pilotare un'astronave personalizzandone l'equipaggiamento fino a pilotare un intera flotta tra diversi pianeti di una vasta galassia.
La storia non è ne corta ne lunga ma è molto simpatica ed estremamente difficile, soprattutto quando ci imbatteremo nei famigerati zombie!

“I prefer face-to-face conversations. In case the situation turns bad, I know exactly who needs to be blown up.”

Space Pirates and Zombies (SPAZ) is a hybrid 2-D space simulation crossed with a real-time strategy game developed by the company Minmax Games with emphasis on combat mechanics and tactics.

Atmosphere & presentation:

+ Large amount of ships with creative designs guarantee a lot of variety and enable a corresponding learning curve.
+ The salvage and mining mechanics keep up the motivation to explore new star systems.
+ Size and mass of ships influence movement and inertia of each vehicle.
+ Late game introduces an ever shifting equilibrium of power.

o The faction system adds an interesting dimension to the game, but it has little impact on the behaviour or decision making of the player.

- Amount of side missions and randomly generated events throughout the galaxy are limited and repetitive.
- The musical background lacks variety.

Combat & gameplay:

+ Fluent combat mechanics create a dynamic battlefield with focus on tactical positioning.
+ Each ship offers different customization options for weapon and auxiliary systems, which benefits the tactical spectrum of the game.
+ Easy-to-learn-but-hard-to-master skill tree challenges the player to gain more experience.
+ Late game requires a more strategic approach of the evolving situation.

o Everything on the map can be attacked and destroyed.

Characters & story:

+ Story telling has a surprising and refreshing twist.
+ Well done integration and development of the zombie threat.

o Stereotypical portrayal of characters.

- Very little voice acting during the entire game.

Summary:

Minmax Games succeeded in creating a well-rounded game with only a few rough edges. SPAZ delivers much more action and tactics than one might expect of this indie title. The urge to unlock the next ship class, spending points on the elaborate skill tree or collecting credits for the next weapon upgrade will keep you up late into the night. And the entertaining zombie plot will come around the corner when you least expect it.

Achievements:

Estimated time for 100 % completion: +50 hours

Singleplayer achievements: 48
Multiplayer achievements: none

I finished this game in 64 hours. That wasn't a wasted time, not at all. Because I like tactical strategies and I like RPGs. This game is mainly strategy with active pause. RPG elements is mostly for technical purposes like skills and leveling. So don't expect tons of talking.
But be prepared for tons of space explosions, destroyed and captured star bases, lasers, missiles, dozens of skills, upgrades, ships and all that stuff which should be in game like that. Yes, this game has it all. And all of that in open, procedurally generated world.

VERDICT:
If you like space adventures, you will like this one.
If you don't, better change your mind.
If you really don't, why the hell did you start to read this at all?

SPAZ is an awesome game, you gather resources and manage your own fleet of starships, everything can be customized, from engines to missiles. Took me about 22 hours to finish the campaign, the map is huge, the more you explore the more ships and technologies you unlock, and to complete the package the game support mods, you can simply download a Star Trek or Battlestar Galactica mod that will customize all your ships!

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.
