Om detta spel


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!

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.

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.

There's nothing in this game that stands out, good or bad. Although the price is low, with so many games out there, you would be better off spending your time playing another game. This one is just not interesting enough... even boring.

It has all the right parts - tactical combat, strategic survivor management, leveling survivors, crafting items, expanding base, etc. But each part is made so simplistic that you just go through the routine of doing the obvious, not many interesting choices.

The combat part is too simplistic, not much room for tactics, just keep your guys together and let the zombies come to you. Not many interesting decisions to make, not many options (no active skills, no taking cover, etc)

The survivor management part is even less interesting. Again, it's too simplistic, there's not really a lot of thought you need to put in. Just drive to a site, fight, drive back to base. When you have enough resources craft a gun that has more damage, and continue the routine.

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

They just ran away with their money. Even workshop compatibility would have made this game better but noooo they only did one thing about 10 months after I bought which was they fixed about 6 issues and left this game to rot. Don't buy it. It's a waste of $9.

I want to love it.. There are a ton of cool ideas and mechanics but overall there are just too many bugs and ♥♥♥♥ty details that bother me. Almost like it was made by Ubisoft and they only went 90%... on all there games... all the time. So it's comparable to an Ubisoft game!

I just bought this game on sale... and I feel like I have been cheated. This game should still be marked as early acces, text does not resize and so becomes unreadable, squadmembers will ignore orders and get themselves killed.... the game have potential... but it is not done yet, and they have stopped working on it.

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

20141106 - 8-10 hours playtime...

The playtime isn't bad for such a low budget game, However, I just ran into a bug that completely blocked game progression - due to a "defend" mission not ending - nor allowing me to withdraw.

Elevator pitch:
Top down scavage & survive in a Left 4 Dead style zombie world...

Review:
This game could have been epic, but the bugs, near programmer level art, flat and unexiting skillsystem make for a very flat and unengaging experience in the end... It is a shame, because a few bits taken care of - this could easily have been worth €20+. Such as:
- A massive bug-hunt...
- An art overhaul...
- More skills both in number and variation...
- Some added gameplay features like sneak, move&fire, etc.

...as it stands - I guess I'm ok with donating €6 to the dev for a good try. Perhaps if he gets enough such donations he will wrap this up into the game it deserves to be.


Recommend?
This is a hard call... really hard.
While I really DO want to recommend this rough diamond - the developer has all but carried himself to the finishing-line and needs but fall over to complete the product - unfortunately I can not recommend a game which has a progression blocks.

If I see regular updates - I will reconsider this assessment.

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.

This game is broken for a few reasons: First I got so frustrated I hacked in armor and weapons and gave 4 of my survivors 500HP. The next mission I ran, they were grabbed so many times that had they not had long range fully automatic guns and armor, they all would have died. I'm alright with hard games: they can be fun. But I draw the mother♥♥♥♥ing line when I hack the game and am still at risk of losing due to sheer lack of fairness.

If you want it, Buy it, get out notepad, hack it, and have fun slaughtering zombies. Unless you do that this game's campaign is unplayable.

Game was great until you get to the point where you run into the gay ♥♥♥ mobs we've seen hundreds of times before in Left4Dead and other games like this that decide to copy them. Had its own vibe and unique feel until then. Afterwards, it just felt too lame to play.

I really enjoyed playing this game, although the actual main story and game is rather bland, every level is the same and there always in darkness. You control 4 survivors, of which you can level up with exp as you go, this gives them special abilitys such as having a better shot or more health. The new added dlc is great although very short, but hey it free and is a gd addition. Theres also a survival game mode and also something called death lab, which is survival over ten levels. At first the game seems difficult but once you learn it can be paused on the go and movements planned while paused it all becomes a little easiar.... but be warned, youre find yourself tapping that spacebar like a crazy man to advance. Overall for the price this is a must buy for anyone who enjoys this type of game, 7.5/10

Yet another game jumps on the zombie bandwaggon.
The game has some nice ideas but there is just not that much content to keep it interesting for long. Story is non-existent. You keep on searching same-looking black/greyish buildings for stuff while fighting with the clumsy controls and bad AI of your fellows. While you are supposed to scavenge stuff the initial inventory is way to small so that adds further to frustration.
Also zombies can retake areas so you might have to refight the levels. RPG elements are kept simple - all characters have the same skill tree. And the art-style is really bad - not like "good" bad but as in "bad" bad.
The good stuff? Exciting shooting and tension, lot of blood. But it's not enough to save the game.

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.

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.

I actually really enjoy this game despite it being VERY hard at times and a little buggy.
The game can go from being easy as pie in one moment, to almost impossible at the next but I find that keeps it exciting.
Rather than being able to rush through the game, you have to think, pace yourself and plan which many games now don't seem to do.
There are different game modes too, depending on how you want to play and the random generation make the game highly replayable.

My few gripes are firstly - the mulitplayer. There was such potential for it and so many ways it could be handled and instead it's ended up being a 1 v 1 type thing.
Also, the game has it's fair share of bugs, which I found bearable (the game autosaves before each node) but many people seem to be pretty annoyed by them so if you're looking for a bug-free experiecne this may not be the game for you (but neither will Skyrim or Fallout).
But for the price of the game you cannot complain. I got my money worth at least three times over (I own it on Desura too).
If you enjoy randomly generated games that can get hard but are incredibly addictive then this is for you.
