It's okay. It's not great, it's not terrible. It's JUST okay.

The "Survive-waves-of-zombies" genre is a dime a dozen, as is the crafting and other survival horror games. It's not terrible, but it's nothing special.

I didn't have any problems with screen lag, There were certain parts that, even with the flashlight, were too difficult to see. It's a surprisingly difficult game! In comparison with a game like, say, How to Survive, however, it just doesn't set itself apart enough to require a full playthrough.

If it's on sale, pick it up. If not, you might want to skip it. If I may offer a tip to the developers - keep going, especially if you're new to development. This shows potential, but just falls a bit short.

Even still, I'm recommending it on the basis that I don't feel like my time was wasted, and I'll probably play it a few more times before I uninstall it.

5.5/10.

Tries really hard to be a tower-defense twin-stick shooter, but neither the tower defense parts nor the shooting parts are any fun at all. The animations are stiff and lifeless (even on the living characters), the voice acting is hit and miss, and the weapons are really terrible.

Would be pretty innovative if it weren't for the fact that Nation Red does absolutely everything better in all conceivable ways.

The singleplayer mode is just awful, but multiplayer is a lot of fun with friends! I'd highly recommend playing this, but friends should be listed in the requirements

Not bad. A great concept and fun, but some of the details make it really frustrating, at least in the single player mode. After your inevitable death, you have to start at the very beginning of the level, often going through (awkwardly slow) cutscenes again. You can't hold more than one weapon at once, and when you do have a decent weapon, it's use it or lose it. You can't switch back to your infinite-ammo pistol to save the better gun for something later. I gave up on one of the single player missions because I'm convinced it's not supposed to be possible.

Still, the game manages to be fun, and the multiplayer probably has a lot to offer when you're playing with four friends.
