Survivor Squad: Gauntlets - Update #23


Howdy folks!

Yet another big update to Survivor Squad: Gauntlets, Editor Challenges have been added.
These are 20 Challenges of increasing complexity that you must use the Editor Event Actions to overcome. It should be a fun way of learning just how powerful the Editor can be.


Survivor Squad: Gauntlets is now available on Mac and Linux! So far I have kept only Windows builds due to the fact that it makes it faster to update every week but since V1.00 is around the corner this is the time to get Mac and Linux users involved!

You can now post comments on the Featured Gauntlets, those comments will show in-game in the end screen, let everyone know what you thought.

New Main Menu that guides new Players through all the Gauntlets ensuring a nice difficulty curve. Options Menu was also revamped and now all key bindings have the correct functions.


Keep the feedback coming and enjoy the update!

About This Game


Survivor Squad is a Strategy Action game where you control a Squad of up to four survivors and guide them through a highly randomized world looking for supplies to aid you on your journey.

Scavenge for supplies in every corner of every building, craft your gear, pick your skills and loadout while keeping your Squad alive by covering every corner and moving as a group.

It is a game that encourages quick thinking and fast paced play since you need to pay attention to all of your squad mates. If you leave someone behind, chances are they will be pounced on and die. Move as a Squad and cover every corner.

Four game modes: Campaign, Survival, Death Lab and Multiplayer.

Features:

  • Top Down 2d Strategy Action
  • Use Melee weapons to take down enemies silently or go guns blazing
  • Scavenge buildings for materials to craft your gear
  • Equip Gadgets to assist you in combat
  • Highly randomized world providing infinite possibilities
  • Capture Infected buildings and defend them from the horde
  • Several types of Special Infected that must be dealt with quickly
  • Rename your Survivors to have a more intense personal experience
  • Four game modes: Campaign, Survival, Death Lab and Multiplayer.

Gameplay:

Control your Squad with the mouse carefully planning where each Survivor goes to and where to look. The Survivors have a limited view range so it is vital to ensure you are looking where the infected will most likely come from.

Certain events require you to move around a building while fighting off a horde, you must keep a close eye on your squad or they will perish one by one.

Various types of Special Infected have abilities such as Blinding Powder or Acid Pool that encourage you to quickly move your Survivors while making sure they are never alone

In campaign mode you can capture infected buildings that generate resources but must be defended from horde invasions

Campaign:

Play through a highly randomized world following a simple storyline with unique events and a conclusion.

Survival:

Score based mode, go through as many randomly generated buildings as you can never looking back.

Death Lab:

Equip your Survivor Squad with a limited budget and take them through a collapsed Lab. Good micro management of your Squad is essential to your survival.

Multiplayer:

The new Multiplayer mode is a 1v1 scenario (Online/LAN) where one player controls the Survivors and another player controls the Infected. The Survivors must reach the extraction zone and the Infected must stop them by spawning various types of Infected around them. Will the survivors reach their extraction zone alive and well or will they be devoured along the way? It's up to you!

The recent updates (1.14 specifically) add much more to the game where originally it was lacking a little when i first played at the start of the year.

Right now it's in a good state, it's stable and also provides enough content for the price. I'm glad i picked this up again.

didnt much care for the game and bought it on sale a while ago, nobody is gonna see nor read this review so might as well say what i feel.

the game is what the title says, its about a squad of survivors, you are tasked with guiding 1-4 survivors though buildings, getting supplies and going elsewhere (never played the storymode, i assume survival is about the same). you have to make some choices to take some supplies and leave others, other than that, didnt play all that much, maybe enought to get the cards and a few achevements. got a bit boring and a tad repetitive after i kept dying :/. i do recommend the game, just not at full price

So far so fun, so I'd recommend it. The directional revealed light system is quite cool, but I think that people actually have a wider range of view than the 50-60 degree angle presented in the game. Further, for some reason all missions are done at night. Perhaps some in game explaination, like they know that zombies are inactive during the day, so that's when everyone sleeps because it's safe? Also the tutorial level could have been a bit longer, explaining stuff like Active Pausing and controlling your survivor's orientation. The graphics for the portraits is ... childish at best ... but the overhead view is good and it cuts the zombie killing down to the important stuff.

1 Room, 4 entrances, 4 guys.... guy 1 guards entrance 1, guy 2 guards entrance 2, guy 3 guards entrance 3 and guy 4 guards entrance 4.
Simple enough... except when a couple of infected come through entrance 3 the all turn towards entrance 3
now I'm getting overrun from entrance 2 and 4 .... YOU'VE GOT YOUR JOB LET THEM GET ON WITH THEIRS! If they get into trouble I WILL TELL YOU to turn around.... that's MY JOB!!!!

There needs to be an option to stop them turning around, or at least limiting it to only if their team mate is being attacked

That said.... Pretty good game all things considered :-)

Captures many aspects of the Survival Horror Genre left out of other games. Like the chaos of having to manage multiple people against a horde.

This game might be cheap, but if you play it youll think WHY?!?!? on the fact this well put together madness of a game is only 9 bucks! It should be worth more because of how well it looks, plays out, and controls i would love to see more from the creator of "Survivor Squad" 10/10 Would download and buy again!

Glorified flash game. Dosn't explain itself in any way, things just kinda 'happen' and it assumes you somehow know what it is / how to deal with it. Game dosn't always respond to your orders, which really makes it hard to play at times, with how fast-paced it typically is. Good idea, but poorly executed.

Its an amazing game about survival. I really like how I got hooked to this game out of curiosity. Its just amazing. It has a lot of potential to it. Overall it can be more enjoyable with more than 4 people, say that you can handle or deploy 2 Squads at the same time or like 1 first for this location then on the other side the other one. Anyways I really like this game and I would put more hours into it :P Overall It's a fun game to pick up while in sale. 8.5/10

I didn't play this game when it's came out but with the recent version of game, i can say it's pretty good and smooth. I haven't experienced any bug either.

About game, it's a real survival strategy game which is a great combination. If you like survival games you'll definitely like this one.

It's a good time passer. The additional modes are a good twist... I enjoyed the graphics and overall visual approach, made me think of the difference between xenonauts and xcom.

BUT WHY ARE THERE NO SHOTGUNS?

There is so much you could do with 9 dollars that is better than this. I'd get more enjoyment out of a few rolls of charmin ultra than this game. Tried to get into this game. In short it's a very limited game and theres a lot of broken mechanics which really makes it unplayable.

Characters can get grabbed and pulled through windows (windows are unbroken and you cant walk through them) so you can have a unit maxed out with gear and he just gets yanked through an unbroken window into a house of 20 zombies and dies, nothing you can do.

I've had my survivors pushed into rooms through windows(once that require buttons to be pressed to get out) so your characters get stuck in rooms that no one can get to.

Your units are ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥. You have to tell them everything, and when you tell them things, they don't do. examples. They will run straight into zomibes with mellee weapon equiped, and if they can't get to the spot they are trying to get to, they won't kill the zombies, they will just run in place while they get eaten alive. You tell them to face a certain way, They turn around to shoot zombies other characters are already killing, then low and behold, they won't turn back around to face the way you told them to face.

I could go on but it's the short and sweet, Terrible mechanics, so much is broken, difficulty would be fun if you could actually control your units. Go spend your money elsewhere, you'll feel you wasted it here.
