just dont. dear god don't. the only possibly good thing about this game is the kinda appealing(to my eye) art. But even that is ruined when the game lags out any time more than 2 zombies are on screen. I got this on sale for less than 2 bucks and I still want my money back. Even though I told myself that if the game sucked I wouldn't feel bad because it is only $2. Well I feel bad, very very bad. Because it is a very very bad game.

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.

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.

There are certainly better ways to spend your $10. The game feels unfinished, like it should be in Early Access as opposed to final.

I didn't know it was possible to mess up a zombie game until now. Piece of ♥♥♥♥ and waste of money. Campaign or singleplayer is too dificult on the first few levels and bosses do incredible amounts of damage that isn't fair. Oh since its so hard to fight off the zombies alone why dont I play with a few people on coop. Oh wait THERE ARE NO SERVERS

This game hasn't received any update since I bought it and there are clearly things to improve that shouldn't take so long.

Weapons for one, no auto reload and only able to carry 1 gun at a time so you can't save up a gun for when you really need it. Its missing a fun element, cause your carefull, constantly reloading to be on the save side cause there is no way you can get health back.

I haven't played a single multiplayer game cause quite frankly nobody seems to play it.

Don't bother, doesn't work at all on linux with no dev response as to a fix, multiplayer doesn't even connect 99% of the time if you can ever find a server (requires port forwarding...really? what is this 2001?) The only game on my list I want a refund for. As others said, buggy and unfinished. Should have been early access.

This game is like Nation Red, Pick up guns and kill zombies and bosses with an extra add on from flying eye ball monsters and giant worms type monsters

Also the Air strike attack is a nice little bonus to the game, nothing beats killing zombies from a mini gun in the air
Fun to play on Coop mode with friends

If you enjoyed Nation Red then I’m sure you’re going to like this game also

SUPER WARNING: TURN AWAY NOW, DO NOT EVEN CONSIDER BUYING THIS GAME!

This is the worst zombie game I have ever played none bar, everything is awful about it, just everything, every single effing thing in this fails at life, this is a disaster of a game that does not deserve to be played let alone be on steam, there is litterly nothing here thats why! Theres 6 single player missions that last you 10 mintues or less and the last mission is so ultra ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ you have to crank it down to easy to pass it... yea, its one of those games.

This would have never got on steam if it wasent greenlit for being a zombie game and looking decent, this is totally unfinished and should be a super cheap early access or alpha build, I finished this whole game 20 MINUTES! you should never have to pay 10 bucks for 20 minutes of a terrible game, never ever. Im never going to ask my friends to get it either so its not like ill be playing co op in a hurry, tho I highly doubt theres any way for that to be better really.

If the amount of upset dissapointed rage im clearly expression right now isent enough to turn you away from this game ill make my point even more clearl, every zombie you kill drops 'special' weapons at random and they have very little ammo and are basically pointless, theres no auto reload so you have to do it MANUALLY every freaking 12 shots, it gets tedious and just annoying, and oh yea every zombie drops one measly metal, when upgrades and turrets cost up to 70 metal or more to buy from random people, yea not even fair, icing on the cake is tho you dont regen health and there is no health kits, no way to buy health, no power ups, NOTHING, yea you heard me... games have ways to replenish your health for a darn effing reason, god these developers really need to get some content in this game or there is going to be so many angry people falling for this being a big decent zombie game as it appears like i did then feeling ripped off cas of eff all content.

0.1 out of 10, theres nothing here to play people, move along. =/ A shameful waste of yet another zombie game

An overhead zombie survival horror game, it attempts to be a lot of things and does badly at getting any of it right.

The perspective is one of a twin-stick shooter, like Narco Terror, but with lack of resources, like Resident Evil, you must finesse your way through the limited number of stages available to the player's single player campaign.

Once you've exhausted the single player, you'll notice much of the achievements are multiplayer required.. and yet.. there are no servers available. So.. yeah.. your finsihed just when it starts to simmer a bit.

Spare your wallet on this one folks, you'll thank us all later.

has potential, that's for sure. but there are some things in this game that are quite annoying.

- unbalanced, under- or overpowered weapons
- bad item placement, and drops disappear to fast (why at all? make it an option ffs)
- you can't switch between weapons. use it or drop it (wich is especially annoying with the line above in mind)
- permanent lack of ammo (in combination with the both lines above -> /ragequit)
- those... grabbing zombies, whatever they are called are a pain in the butt. when they come from above or below, they're barely in sight and already got you at the balls. decrease their reach or set the camera further above the player to increase the view radius.
- controls are not what i would call accurate, mouse is jumpy as hell...

conclusion: at the current state i cannot recommend it, unless you get it on sale realy cheap as i did.

Update: WARNING, doesnt work at all on linux at the moment.

i have to give a bad review of this game. 1st can't see any thing when moving to the north or south of the screen. 2nd very low ammo drop on weapon pick ups (exp. rail gun & rocket only 2 ammo each, one shot then need reload). 3rd only one weapon at a time. 4th no auto reload (at lest have it on easy & nomal. 5th sewer level suck (mostly becouse of #1).

Bought this game thinking "What a fun time this will be: ZOMBIES!" It was a poor line of thought. While this is a "fun" game it is ment to be played with other people and not solo. You will find as you play that this is not catered to solo play. But, and this is a BIG but, if you have friends who are willing to play with you then this is the game for you.
