Akimbo Ranger Unit Reveal

[CLARIFICATION] JUST TO MAKE IT CLEAR THIS WAS AN APRIL FOOLS' JOKE

It’s the right time for our first player unit reveal from Task Force North – The Ranger Pointman Class.

Highly trained in the use of worn-out government-issued handguns, the Pointman dominates Close Range space without ever needing melee weapons or even holsters.

Once properly upgraded, he gains access to dual handguns and becomes the Akimbo Ranger, the ultimate pure CQB death dealer in Door Kickers metaverse as well as in a few others. Moreover, the handguns are now equipped with silencers, which obviously makes them completely silent and reliable.

Once a kill is achieved, the Akimbo Ranger automatically assumes specific celebration poses meant to demoralize all enemies within sight, as well as realism purists reading this text.

And what better and tactically sound way to celebrate Victory, than turning your back defiantly to the enemy? We’ll call this one, totally random, the “Over The Shoulder” pose.

“If you like your puzzles pausable and plausable, your firefights fierce and your tactical options abundant, this is sure to be one of the best things you buy this year.”

“Door Kickers is a game about cops kicking down doors, and these doors are a lot of fun to kick down. It is also very hard, and I love it for that.”
84 – PC Gamer

“It’s a thing of beauty and manages to capture the planning and satisfying execution of more complex strategy games, as well as the gung-ho and the popping-off of growly man in military shooters. (...) It’s probably the best man-shootery game I’ve played in years.”

About This Game

Door Kickers is an innovative realtime strategy game that puts you in charge of a SWAT team and lets you command them during a tactical intervention.

Analyze the situation, plan team routes, choose equipment and breach points and coordinate multiple troopers to reach the hostage room before the bad guys get to press that trigger.

It may sound daunting, and like real world CQB combat, it sure is. But most levels can be completed in minutes and on the fly improvisation works. Achieving the perfect planning, getting the mission done with no false steps, that’s a skill harder to master.

Quick Points:

  • 2D, Top Down for optimal tactical analysis
  • Real Time With Free Pause
  • No turns, no hexes, no action points or awkward interfaces
  • Realistic but action packed
  • Non-linear levels, freeform gameplay
  • Mission editor and modability
  • Unlimited gameplay via mission generator and level editor
  • Single Player (but MP might come later)

I love this game! The best part of the old Rainbow Six and Ghost Recon games was the planning and coordination between team members, and this game is all that. Very cool team member customization as well. Missions can get REALLY hard, which makes you keep thinking of new tactics.

Straight got this game for $2.99 on Humble Store yesterday, and let me tell you. The amount of content I got for that price is astounding. There are A LOT of levels. Then you have the editor to make your own, and then the community. AND MODS!

The amount of strategy you can develop in this small ♥♥♥ little game is pretty crazy. If it's on sale, get it.

If you like strategy games, if you like tactical games. Heck if you like good games get this. It's fan-bloody-tastic. Extremely frustrating and its incredibly rewarding when your plan comes together.

It's a bargain and worth every penny.

Decent game but has many shortcommings. Wait for sale and get it dirt cheap.
Level design spans from good to clowncars of baddies - even in home invasion mission there are 1-3 people in every single room of 3 story apartment and you get 4 troppers to clear that! upgrade progression makes no sense in this type of game and is very limiting - it is a big hump at the start of the game, ranking missions based on complete time makes no sense in this type of game (and you need lotsa stars to unlock Stealth class, takes forever!), givig you worthless recruits makes no sense. Too many weapons which do not differ much if at all cluttering the list.
The troops will show too much initiative and shoot the first guy they see even if you order them to hook around the doorway and check the far corner, but at the same time they need to be instructed to sidestep around every corner.
RNG aspects: your troops will occasionally fail to fire first when a tango shows up even if they are aimed exactly at the corner and static. No ammount of foresight can prevent this on occasions.
Did I mention star system? Cannot 3 star all missions as you go along, most of them need equipment and classes you will unlock later, so you might need 1 star many to them go back and try to redo them.

I spent hours few years bacl playing Rouge Spear in spectator mode and I expected this to be better.

It is a fun tactical game. Sadly for me it got quite repetitive quite soon. As I got it from sale then I am very happy with this game, but I probably wouldn't buy it for the full price.

I have a feeling like I have missed somekind of functionality in this game, but some missions (especialy the hostage rescue ones) are just not fun. In some missions I have a feeling it is more down to luck then my planning.

I really loved the squad mechanics in this game
* Squad members actually getting killed
* How the skill and equipment system works

Things that annoyed me the most:
1) Windows. Why on earth can't the guys duck under window so they would not be seen.
2) No controll on who shoots who. In hostage rescue missions I attack the room from both sides and my guys don't care that there is hostage between you and the bad guy.
3) Also the AI is stupid and way too predictable (no fleeing, no surrendering). I accidentally threw flashbang outside a room where hostages are being held. Instead of shooting the hostage some bad guys just ran out of the room so I could easily kill them.... why thank you, but not realistic behavor.

Overall it is a nice game.

This game is pretty cool and I like the how it is so intense in the campaigns because if your Soldiers die they're gone forever.

Its a fun game, I don't think it's worth the $20 asking price but definately consumed some of my time. It's a thinking game combined with just enough action to keep you tense about it. Pick it up next time you see it in a bundle.

I just wanted to add to Door Kickers + rating because it's a simple yet fantastic game. Frustrating in parts, and rewarding when a plan comes together.

Great simplicity with which endless possible tactics and game modes will provide hours of entertainment for your dollars. Reminds me of Rainbow Six 3 for the PC and PS1, though I've no idea why. Perhaps it kind of feels like the 'cam down' look of that particular game.

Anyhoo, support the developers and buy it. And look forward to #2, coming out sometime soon, if I recall... Dig it...
