Informace o hře

Containment: The Zombie Puzzler is an action puzzle game like you’ve never seen before. The goal of Containment is to surround zombies with survivors of the same color. But watch out for the zombies—they'll fight back by infecting the survivors in the street. Through the game's pulse-pounding campaign and multiple survival modes, you'll use your wits, items you find you along the way, and even the town around you to contain the zombie outbreak.

Key Features:

  • Not a Match 3 In Containment, you don’t match three of anything—you eliminate zombies by surrounding them with survivor tiles.
  • These Tiles are Alive Each tile is a fully animated character that interacts not just with its fellow survivors and zombies, but also with the environment.
  • Unique Storytelling There's no time for cutscenes or dialog boxes when the undead are trying to eat you—the story of Franklin County and its survivors is told through in-world text as you make your escape through what's left of the city.
  • Real-Time/Turn-Based Containment combines the cerebral strategy of a puzzle game with all the real-time action you'd expect from a zombie attack.
  • WMD’s Playing the game well rewards you with useful items that you can use against the zombie horde to devastating effect.
  • The Environment is Your Friend Franklin itself becomes a weapon as you knock over signs, power up heavy cranes, and roll cars over zombies.
  • Boss battles Yeah, that’s right. We even have boss battles. You haven’t seen zombies like these before.

Děsně chytlavá hra, jediný problém je obtížnost která je fakt hodně jednoduchá i když taky se najdou momentky kdy to vypadá špatně...
Celkově super hra, doufám že je i na mobily....

Sophie’s Choice

Games are great, I love them all, from hard core strategy through to frantic FPS action, but if I had to pick my least favorite genre.... well... it’s like asking a parent who their least favorite child is, it’s not an easy question to answer and you’ll almost certainly get the generic “I love them all equally” reply.

That’s the easy way out; the problem is that it almost certainly isn’t true.


Gaming Bones

Deep down we know the answer, even if we don’t want to admit it to ourselves, but I’ll be brave, I’m going to take a stand for absolute honesty.

My least favourite genre is probably the puzzler, that’s not to say that I haven’t sunk plenty of hours into playing them over the years, but they just don’t grab me like other genres do.

They’re just too shallow, too casual, they’re fine for killing time on my phone or tablet during a commute but when I’m at home and looking for a gaming fix it’s rare that you’ll find me sitting in front of my PC playing Peggle or Tetris.

That’s not to say that I don’t enjoy puzzlers, but when I’ve got the gaming itch and enough time to indulge it properly, I like a little more meat on my gaming bones.


Monster Connoisseur

Monster movies are great; I love them all, from werewolves and vampires through to undersea kraken and outer space aliens, but if I had to pick my absolute favourite movie monster genre, it’d have to be zombies

I’ve exposed myself to so much zombie culture over the years that I can’t walk through a shopping centre or mall without thoughts of Dawn of the Dead playing through my mind.

Could the undead break through those glass doors? How long would the cakes and cookies in Starbucks stave off my hunger? Would I really be lucky enough to be in a mall when the zombie apocalypse strikes?

These are the sorts of questions that keep me up at night but rarely do I have the same thoughts about other supernatural beasties. If I’m out at night and there’s a full moon, I don’t check my pockets for silver bullets.
On the rare occasion that I’ve seen a bat, I don’t reach for the crucifix and the garlic.

Werewolves and Vampires don’t stalk my waking thoughts but zombies... the “what if” of the undead apocalypse is always there, shambling beneath the surface of my mind.... but enough of my problems...


Apathetic Fanatic

Seemingly random questions at the start of reviews are great, but why am I sharing my aversion to puzzle games and my unhealthy zombie obsession?
It’s because these particular personal preferences have presented me with a dilemma.
You see I’m about to play through a game called “Containment”, a zombie themed puzzler which means I should both love it and be completely disinterested at the same time...


Survival Flavour

Containment certainly takes an interesting twist on the puzzle genre, instead of having colourful gems, blocks, fruits etc. to play with, here your puzzle pieces are zombies and survivors.
The survivors themselves come in various different flavours from chainsaw wielding punks to gun toting cops.
Each level presents you with a block of these survivors and some zombies mixed in for good measure. If you do nothing the zombies will infect the survivors around them, turning them into zombies too!

This encourages you to play through quickly, spend too much time mulling over your decisions and your group of survivors will turn into a shambling horde, so expect some frantic and rushed decision making as you play.


Shuffle Around

The game mechanic itself is a fairly simple one, you swap the positions of the different survivors by clicking on them, and your goal is to reposition the survivors in such a way that a zombie is surrounded by the same survivor type.

So if you’ve got a zombie that already has a couple of redneck survivors standing next to it, you’d quickly want to scan the closest survivors for more rednecks, if there are some close by, you’d start clicking on them to slide them into position around the zombie.
As soon as our red necked buddies have the walker surrounded, they’ll take it down.
That’s one less to worry about, time to move on to the next.
It’s a simple rinse and repeat formula that makes this, like most other puzzle games, quick to learn, initially addictive but ultimately a little repetitive.


Touches

There are lots of nice touches in Containment.
Different survivors have different attack animations when they take down a zombie, it’s a fairly simple thing, but this variation really does add to the experience, you’ll find yourself looking forward to taking a zombie out with a group of survivors you haven’t “experienced” yet.

When you complete a level, instead of the screen fading to black then loading in the next challenge, the camera will move away from your last victory and rush through the city until it focuses on the next group of survivors waiting for your point and click salvation.


Migraine Free

With regards to the aesthetics, it’s refreshing to play a puzzler that isn’t all bright primary coloured eye candy and flashing lights.
Containment knows its setting and has a palette appropriate for its post apocalyptic theme.
Everything is pretty good looking too in its own top down, mostly static kind of way.


This isn’t just any puzzle game...

This is a refreshing entry into the genre and one which I enjoyed a lot more than I thought I would.
It avoids the migraine inducing bright cheeriness which infects most other puzzlers, it’s gritty, it gives a nice “end times” vibe and if you’re in the mood it can be genuinely fun to play.

Is it the sort of game that will make me want to rush through my working day to get back home and play?

No, puzzle games don’t do that for me, too shallow, remember, but it is a fun distraction in short bursts and one which I’ll definitely load up again.


This is a post apocalyptic puzzle game.

If puzzle "match up" games are your thing and you’re looking for something a little different in the genre, then Containment should fit the bill.
It’s a stylish, quick hit, post apocalyptic puzzler and there aren’t many games you can say that about!

-: grafika, hudba, dizajn, stereotyp a nuda, bugy, atmosféra, modely postáv, lokácie, efekty, cena

+: nápad

Verdikt: Containment je herný odpad, ktorý sa snaží zviesť a ryžovať na popularite témy zombie. Nápad skĺbiť zombie a puzzle nie je zlý. Práve naopak je originálny, ale jeho herné prevedenie je katastrofa. Technická stránka hry zaspala dobu. Grafika je otrasná a efekty smiešne. O hudbe a audio efektoch je zbytočné sa rozpisovať. Hra má v podstate nulovú atmosféru pre bugy a stereotyp, ktorý nastupuje úž počas prvej úrovne. Hra stojí približne 5€, čo by nebolo veľa, ale podobné herné katastrofy sú bežne dostupné zadarmo na viacerých herných portáloch.

Containment - The Zombie Puzzler 3/5: Variace na spoj tři v podobě logického rychlíku, ze kterého až příliš ční, že se jedná o předělávku titulu z mobilních zařízení (znatelné především na ovládání; přeci jen prsty jsou rychlejší než myš). V kampani to sympatickým způsobem pracuje s tematickým hávem zombie apokalypsy k vyprávění příběhu (hodně špatného, ale to je vedlejší) čili to není jen klasické "bezpohlavní" spoj tři bez námětu (jeden příklad za všechny, okolí jednotlivých map bývá často interaktivní). Hraje se to svižně, každá obrazovka v cca tří hodinové kampani je na maximálně pět minut; ostatně i v tom bezpečně poznáte mobilní kořeny. Navíc tu krom kampaně jsou i jiné herní módy. Největším a bohužel zábavu dost kazícím háčkem je nepřehlednost v pozdějších fázích, kdy se k základním panáčkům (čti barvám) přidávají různé bonusy, efekty apod. V tu chvíli se to mění ve zmatek nad zmatek, kde vše poblikává až oči přecházejí. Což je hlavní důvod proč není příliš chuť se k tomu vracet; přehledné pasáže jsou příliš lehké a tam kde výzvu hra přeci jen nabízí, to zase z výše uvedého důvodu je více otrava než zábava, ale pro ty momenty, kdy je poměr výzva/přehlednost v ideálním poměru, to přeci jen stojí za zahrání.
