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!

Preface
I bought this game on sale, thinking "Eh, 4 dollars, what's the worst that could happen?" Turns out the answer is "a lot".
Before writing the review, I completed the campaign, played some Death Lab and Survival.

Controls
Lacking. There are keyboard shortcuts, which is a plus, but the amount of micromanaging is just annoying. There is no way to give your squad very basic commands like "walk over there, but hold your formation" or even "guard here, look a little bit left or right occasionally". I mean, yes, they aren't trained soldiers, but come on - that's very basic "use your brain to survive" stuff.

Variety / Difficulty / Replayability
Personally, I found it too easy. Take an easily defendable position (beware windows), shoot single zombie, run back to squad, profit. If there are hearts, use melee and sneak your way through. After the hearts are disabled, progress as usual. As this works almost every time, it also gets repetitive. New equipment isn't a necessity, it just achieves victory faster.

The different game modes. Yes. Campaign is as described above. Then there is Death Lab, which I actually liked. Kind of. It, too, got old pretty fast. Survival mode is a joke. I kind of expected it to be like the campaign, just without the story and a larger or procedurally generated map. Turns out, there are no branches, no loops, no nothing - just node after node, going in a straight line to the right.

So, is the campaign worth replaying? After all, the store page promises random elements. And again, no. While it does, in fact, randomize the campaign map, the actual nodes seem to draw from a pool of predesigned maps and/or houses. While this in itself isn't bad, there are just too few of those to keep things interesting. Even halfway through my first (and only) campaign playthrough, I never encountered any new layouts (excluding the "story nodes")

Bugs
Just look at the forums. Also, I played this game some months ago, and the bugs are still there. Chances are they will never be fixed, with the developer disregarding bug reports and calling the game "finished". Again, read the forums for details on this. I can just list the bugs I personally encountered. They range anywhere from "minor" over "annoying" up to "gamebreaking".
-) Gamebreaking: Rescuing more survivors than you have space for locks you on the "send survivor to city" screen.
-) Grabbers and Jumpers don't care about walls. And by that, I really mean WALLS, not windows. I encountered this many times while defending, but I is especially glaring with the survivors hiding behind the "hidden button" doors, suddenly being surrounded by Jumpers halfway. And yes, that also happens before the button is pressed. One time, I actually watched them glitch through the door (Apparently, they cared more about the locked-in survivor than about my squadmates standing directly behing them).
-) Once hunger and bug-related deaths start to fill up your graveyard, it is virtually rendered useless, as there is no scrolling.
-) Many more minor stuff (like the game randomly unpausing when giving commands), but really, I won't list them all, considering the much more major bugs.

Survivors / City Map / Resources
Good idea, but IMHO, poorly executed. The resources themselves are sparse at first (not a bad thing!), but around the early late-game, they are completely useless. Except for food, of which you will not have enough. By far. Ever. You will have way too much of everything else, mainly because the blueprints drop much faster. By the time you first have enough resources for the first firearm blueprint, you will have found much better ones. Even with reasonable mid-gear upgrades, your squad will have the best equipment far before the campaign is over.

The survivors... Apart from attracting more zombies on heart maps (IMHO the only difficulty spike over the course of the campaign) they are useless as well. When they don't break your game (see "Bugs" above), they idle around in your cities. "Idle", because it is very easy to avoid the zombies attacking back. In fact, the only time that happened to me was when I explicitly wanted it to happen (Achievement! Yay!). And even if they WOULD need to actually defend your cities - chances are they couldn't. Remember what I said about food a little bit earlier? When you run out of food, survivors die. Seems logical. BUT: The dying survivors are NOT selected randomly. It always hits the most recently rescued ones. Chances are pretty good that those are the survivors manning your cities on the front, leaving them empty.

Graphics / Sound
Very good. The graphics fit the gameplay, the music fits the situations, and... yes. Short review, but that's all there is to say about it. I especially liked the Death Lab BGM.

Summary
So, the summarizing question: Knowing everything I do now, would I buy the game again?
No. Plain and simple. For reasons, see everything above.

Paid $2.25 for game, and i still dont feel like it was worth it.
I want to like it, i really do. But i just can't.
The only diffculty in this game comes from stupid AI which would rather continue to walk than stop and attack a zombie that's beating them to death.
Oh, and bugs... Ive run into that classic one that wont allow a mission end, 2 times out of 3 games.
Which is good if you want to kill 500 zombies in 15 minutes, but not good if you'd like to advance the "story"
It reminds me of games ive played for free on newgrounds back in the day, so i cant recommend this game even for less that 5 dollars American..
(I feel bad typing that, because i love indie studios though. So try it for yourself, when it's on sale, but youve been warned)

This is a fun game, but good luck finding anyone to play multiplayer. You can technically spend as long as you like with single player, building up safehouses, resources, and survivors to fight the infected onslaught. Otherwise, you can just burn through this game in a few hours -- you only need to kill the "brain bug" type of monster to win, so you can leave plenty of areas uncleared before completing the game.

If you want a moderately challenging single-player campaign, pick this up when it is on sale. $5 or less is my recommendation.

Survivor Squad, is a top down scavenger quest. It starts on a bad foot, as every map you play is poorly lit and at nighttime, the bad camera angle does the game no favors either. It does not have day rotations and and the view gets annoying the more you play. It tries to cover up how ugly or bare bones it by hiding in the darkness, and while that may work for a short time, you see the same map layout so many times it gets old fast.

Even through it says it's random what it has to pick from is so small that every time it feels the same. Combat with melee is mostly useless, yes you can kill silently but the enemy will keep respawning in many maps until you complete a task. That means the more you melee the more you get injured, and that would be fine if there was a better looting system in the game. You never find items of use and you can't trade items, only buy. Nor can you use your items to increase the outposts you build. While you may find blueprints to craft you do not find items such as armor or better weapons, which makes looting a chore rather than fun.

The combat controls are frustrating as you are limited to control up to four members. If a zombie gets close to your south point the people in the north will turn and shoot south leaving the zombies in the north to get closer. They do not turn around or have any way to accurately keep their focus fire, in one direction.

It becomes a chore of go to map, see same layout and same combat, fight, loot and move on as the game does not respect your time. I can not find myself to recommend this game. Thanks for your viewership and support for more videos check click here. http://www.youtube.com/user/SocioPyscho

Really bad. Combat system makes no sense, most things in this game just don't fit together right. It's really confusing. It does explain things well enough to you at all.

The trailer sums up why this game is awesome. 4 person squad that you take with you to clear buildings from zombies, total awesomeness!

But... The game isn't complete yet. It's not even close. And they don't reply to any questions, bug reports or anything. Looks like they got their money and ran off like so many indie dev's nowadays.

Update:
I made a huge bug report topic where I posted every bug I could find over a month ago. I also sent them an official bug report using the form they made for it. Then after not hearing anything from them I sent them an e-mail asking wether or not they were ever going to finish the game. They responded that it's done in their eyes. After stating that many attacks go through walls they replied that attacks are suppósed to go through windows. Are you guys even reading my e-mails?

Pretty much everybody who has ever played this game disagrees with the statement that this game is completed. I guess they just confirmed that they took our money and then ran off.
Do not support these developers!

Update:
After a long time I started playing again two or three times for an hour this week and it was remarkably bugless. (I didn't reinstall windows, steam or the game and I'm pretty sure there wasn't an update, so there was no reason for the gameplay to improve.)

I stand by what I said before, but if you are in luck and everything works as it was planned it sure is a lot of fun. Also using cheats can help. I always get ♥♥♥♥ed when a zombie does a special attack through a wall, but I just give all my guys Kevlar to compensate for the damage they shouldn't take. Makes it all a lot less frustrating.
