Críticas

“Los desarrolladores planean seguir ampliando el juego en el futuro, ¿pero por qué esperar? Ya es genial ahora...”
9/10 – Atomic Gamer
“Hay que dejar claro que Space Pirates and Zombies es algo más que un grandioso RPG de acción en un mundo abierto estilo Star Control. También es una rara expresión de zombis sin nada que envidiar a Dead Rising y Atom Zombie Smasher.”
A – Gameshark
“Es un juego realmente robusto hecho con pasión y se nota, es un gran ejemplo del renacimiento de juegos independientes que estamos experimentando últimamente. En mi opinión, se trata una de las mejores compras que puedes hacer por $15.”
90/100 – RTS Guru

Acerca de este juego

En su esencia, Space Pirates and Zombies es un juego de combate espacial con vista cenital orientado hacia la acción y la habilidad. Es similar a los que conocimos y amamos en el pasado, pero ahora cuenta con una completa simulación de la física y modernos gráficos para esas explosiones tan bonitas. Pero a medida que profundizas, SPAZ se convierte en algo mucho mejor.
En lugar de pilotar una sola nave, estarás al cargo de una flota en constante crecimiento y evolución, desbloqueando los elaborados elementos tácticos de SPAZ y pudiendo acceder a ellos con tan sólo pulsar un botón. Da órdenes, cambia naves, realiza ajustes en la IA de la flota... todo sobre la marcha. En cualquier momento, la batalla puede cambiar y el Panel Táctico te ofrece las herramientas necesarias para hacer que se decante a tu favor.
Destacando sobre la acción y la táctica, disponemos de unos sistemas de tecnología y de subida de nivel similares a los que esperarías de un RPG. Aprende a construir nuevas naves destruyendo a tus enemigos. Explora la galaxia para encontrar componentes, utiliza tus puntos de investigación duramente conseguidos para desbloquear su potencial y personaliza cada aspecto de tu nueva flota.
Por último, existe el universo en el que todas estas luchas y aventuras tienen lugar. SPAZ cuenta con una galaxia persistente generada al azar y poblada de elementos históricos, facciones, enemigos, misiones y objetos para ofrecerte una experiencia única cada vez que juegues. Mientras luchas por sobrevivir, descubre el secreto de una infestación de zombis en expansión que se propaga mediante la creación de su propio ecosistema de varios niveles en tiempo real.

Características principales:

  • 33 naves para investigar, construir, equipar y pilotar
  • 70 componentes únicos para descubrir y personalizar el rendimiento de tu flota
  • Sistema de combate basado completamente en la física
  • Lucha contra infestaciones de zombis combatiendo contra un completo ecosistema zombi que comprende las cuatro etapas de la no-vida
  • Explora una galaxia persistente generada al azar que contiene cientos de sistemas estelares
  • Libertad para explorar la galaxia y de enfrentarte a los desafíos a tu propio ritmo
  • Ayuda, huye o explota a las facciones en guerra en cada sistema estelar
  • Un sistema de eventos único permite al jugador cambiar el equilibro de poder en cualquier sistema estelar
  • Gasta cuidadosamente los puntos de investigación duramente conseguidos en cientos de mejoras repartidas a lo largo de 15 categorías

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.

This review is a part of Steamified's Community Reviews program and the credit goes to both Steamified & MinMax Games for providing the key for review purposes.

First of all, first impressions plays an important part for me personally to decide whether the game is worth investing the time in and even though I enjoyed my short experience with SPAZ, I have to say that it fail to get me hooked. Now, onward to the actual review.

Space Pirates and Zombies, or SPAZ for short, is a real time roleplaying strategy game developed by the two-man team MinMax Games and was released back in August 2011. SPAZ is generally well-received and the success of the game spawned a sequel with the same name released only recently as an Early Access title.

The game takes place in a distant future where the center piece of the conflict revolves around the discovery of Element 126, or Rez as it's more commonly known. With rumors of the abundance of Rez reserves at the galactic core, you and your crew of space veterans sets out on a voyage to seek the fabled promise of fortune. Of course, things weren't always that easy as the galaxy is in turmoil with the clashes of the oppressing UTA forces and the desperate civilians factions. Not to mention the rising report of zombies incident and the notoriety of the bounty hunters that stalks each system.

The gameplay is done in a top down fashion where you control a single ship while the AI controls, depending on how advanced your mothership The Clockwork is, several others and they will assist you to what nature that you've set them via the Tactic panel. This panel acts as your drawing board for devising strategy on how to approach the situation. The game is paused while the panel is open and you can select units and commands them either to attack, reposition or follow you similar to the conventional real time strategy games. Another unique feature is that while you're in this panel, you can access the hangar menu and customize your deployed ships, whether to change them to a different better-suited hull or switching out ship parts to better adapt to the situation. All of this are done in real time as you close the panel so make good use of the Tactic panel to turn the battlefield to your side.

This game relies heavily on exploration and the game is GIGANTIC! It amazes me of what two people can achieved with the right motivation. Moving back to the exploration part, you'll have to jump from system to system via the warp gate, searching for rare blueprints to outfit your ships better, recruiting vital crew members which provides significant bonuses to your whole fleet, reverse engineering various hulls so that you'll have more options in combat and various others. Based on what you've chose early on, the galaxy can contain to hundreds of system at once and this will lead to potential hundreds of hours of entertainment.

Generally, the game revolves around 4 factions, the United Terran Alliance (UTA), the Civilians, Bounty Hunters and... Space Zombies. Yeah, I'll get to that in a bit. In a system, every action that you take will result in these factions react differently. Anger the UTA too much and you'll have their ships raining beams and missiles on yours and vice versa. To make it worse, in some system where the Bounty Hunters resides, your actions might increase the bounty on your head and collect it too much and you'll have some skilled hunters on your tail. There's also an arena mode held in the Bounty Hunters space station where you can undertake specific challenges in terms of scenarios. Succeed and you'll be awarded with Rez and reputation. I haven't got too far into the game yet but the zombies seems to be the byproduct of a failed experiment and for some reason, it affects ships, or zombies piloting the zombie ships? I don't know but it's pretty whack to be honest but I guess zombies sells.

Now, let's move on to the pros and cons, shall we? I hope this will explain why I said the game didn't get me hooked.

PROS

  • The game is HUGE, even with the least preselected systems generated! Fans of exploration games will love this as there's always the itch to go to the next system, one jump after another. Although I haven't had the chance to tingle with the mods yet (available in the site's forum, if I'm not mistaken), I can sense that the replay value is extremely high, given the interests.
  • The combat system feels tight as every aspect of your fleet are customizable and proper planning and strategy will lead you to victory.
  • For a relatively old title, SPAZ still holds well in the graphics department. It's nothing groundbreaking but each new system and planets are an eye candy to look at.
  • On the technical side of thing, the game runs flawlessly with consistent 60 FPS throughout the game and I've never experience any crashes of the sort. There are also various settings provided from the launcher before starting the game. Steam basic features are all present and functional.

NEUTRAL

  • The initial loading time is considerably long but I guess that would be better than constant loading time in the game.

CONS

  • The biggest thing that annoys me is how floaty the ship's movement felt in the game. I'm not sure if it's stats related or anything but controlling the ship is a pain and I honestly could not get the hang of it.
  • The factions system feels pretty shallow. Each new system has their own relationship meter for you and it doesn't feel like any of your actions are particularly impactful other than towards the bounty hunters.
  • Even though the world is huge and lots of places to explore, I just can't help but feel that almost every system is more or less the same. Maybe I'm just too early in the game but that's how I simply felt.
  • The tutorials, while good, are pretty lengthy and I admit that I almost quit before realizing the the first hour I've played is only part of the tutorial.
  • The sounds in the game in general is very underwhelming. The explosions from blowing up ships are no where near as good to how it visualized. The soundtrack is also forgettable at best. This is a shame since I generally enjoy listening to in-game soundtracks.
  • The UI and text feels too small at times and this is a major problem for players with big monitors.

Despite all the flaws I've listed, SPAZ is a great game, tailored to the niche of the genre and I have to say that they've done it beautifully. Sadly, however, the game doesn't appeal well to newcomers alike and I can only give it a decent 3 / 5.

Like I've said, the game fail to keep me interested from exploring any further, even the previously reviewed Drox Operative appeals more to me. However, if games like this are your cup of tea then by all means, go for it. I'm sure in time you'll receive your money's worth because the contents are just enormous.

Una de esas pequeñas joyas que no se reconocen hasta que no se prueban. En SPAZ nos ponemos al mando de un pequeño escuadrón de piratas, que surca el espacio bajo el amparo de la nave nodriza "Clockwork".

Se trata a grandes rasgos de un juego de acción y ligeramente táctico en el que debemos ir avanzando de un sistema a otro, acercándonos cada vez más a nuestro objetivo central que es el centro mismo de la galaxia. Para pasar de un sistema a otro deberemos conseguir acceso a la puerta de salto correspondiente, ya sea mediante la amistad de la facción que la controla realizando misiones o directamente combatiéndola. Tenemos un sistema de niveles con el que podemos obtener mejoras según recogemos experiencia y así aumentar nuestras estadísticas y bonificaciones (algo que es crucial, ya que cada rango de sistemas tiene un rango de niveles distinto y va aumentando, por lo que los enemigos serán más fuertes), también podemos conseguir (comprando o por la fuerza) planos para equipo más avanzado en piezas clave de nuestras naves a la vez que nos hacemos con fragmentos de planos de naves cada vez más variadas y poderosas. Incluso se nos ofrece la posibilidad de la minería, como una forma alternativa al combate de conseguir "Rez" (el mineral que se utiliza como moneda en el juego).

Pese a que es un título en el que el "grindeo" es su base, lo cierto es que no se hace pesado. Muy al contrario, toda batalla es distinta a la anterior y la historia (aunque escasa) logra que mantengamos el interés para seguir avanzando en la misma, al igual que hay momentos clave en nuestro avance con cambios que afectan a nuestra jugabilidad considerablemente. Todo esto aderezado con varias dosis de humor negro, que nunca viene mal.

Se plantea en un principio con la posibilidad de ser rejugable, generando con cada nueva partida galaxias distintas, aunque con una sola se puede superar fácilmente las 40 horas.

Está en completo inglés, pero no debería ser un problema para alguien con un nivel medio. Muy recomendado, y si encima está de oferta y te gusta en general la temática no deberías dudarlo.

La verdad es que el jueguecillo está muy bien, le he metido ya bastantes horas y sigue molando, es decir, que no cansa fácilmente, y bueno lo pille en unas rebajas de primavera por poco más de 2 euros, aunque la verdad es que vale los 9 que cuesta de normal.

“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!
