First impression: Well, the voice acting isn't that great. But the premise is pretty funny. Gameplay is a very simple isometric beat'em'up. Oh damn, this soundtrack... MMfff. Okay, that's pretty good. That's making beating corporate zombie ♥♥♥ just that much sweeter. Aw man, you recruit NPC people as you walk around? That's kinda cool to lead a herd of I guess what you would call your "buddies" as you battle through the zombie hordes.
2nd level: Lawl, the writing is a bit hit or miss, but It's pretty funny. I enjoy how you are rewarded between levels with a small skit of very home-hitting corporate life humor that's a nice touch to drive the player through the gameplay. I'll admit, the action of rampaging around the office and laying into corporate zombies is pretty fun. Watching my sprite hop over desks and wreck the office as he moves is fairly satisfying. But by the second level, the gameplay is already getting a little repetitive.
3rd level+: Listening to the zombies moan corporate buzzwords is also a pretty fun touch. The enemies are not seeing a whole lot of variation besides adding zombies with slightly more health to the mix each level. Also, I found a red Swingline Stapler and am using it as a weak projectile weapon. I also found a corded phone that I'm using as a morning star.

Overall impression: This is a fun little beat'em'up with stat tracking that will please the completionist in me, plenty of awesome theme humor keeps me giggling as I play, and a pumping chiptune soundtrack complements the frantic arcade action well. This title was well worth what I paid for it.

Dear Patrons of offices and simulators alike.

I, as an office professional and simulation game player find this game to be a poor example of our lifestyle. I know that as game developers, the creators felt a public pressure to add traditional "video game" elements but they chose poorly. This game features more about fighting that it does about working. I tried to hold a meeting and one of my co-workers broke the projector.

"Fun for when you feel like killing your boss"

- Graphics 8/10
I think for this type of game the graphics suit it very well, this ofcourse is my opinion.

- Storyline 7/10
The game has some story to it, not much of it though. I still enjoyed it quite a bit. It could have been improved a little, but what kind of story can you expect from a game where you can throw pencils and staples.

- Gameplay 9/10
The gameplay of the game just feels amazing, there are so many available options of how you want to kill the zombies its insane! You can kill them by just maning up and hiting them with your fists or just go out on a rampage shooting staples, shotguns, pencils, handguns or even ninja stars! Why not a 10 out of 10 you ask? (I know you do) Because there are some areas in the map where you just get stuck in debree or get glitched out of the map and can't get back in. The game also had a nice touch where at the end of each level you see how much damage you did to the level, how many zombies you killed or how many survivors you rescued.

Controls 10/10
I didn't find any problems with the controls of the game, the default wasd to move and left click to shoot. Switch between weapons with the num-pad or just scroll. Perfectly normal.

A.I. 5/10
It's zombie A.I. how can you screw it up, right?
It's acceptable, but not good. The zombies tend to form flocks of sandbags that do nothing.

Final Verdict 8/10
Enjoy it, Love it, Beat it.

"Can I borrow your chainsaw?" "No you can't borrow my chainsaw!"
These people get me. Pixels. Check. Zambies. Check. Explosions. Check. Terrible but funny voice acting. Check.

Well I think you get the idea.
All im saying is that its a great game. So get it now. Its only 5 bucks (unless its on sale while your reading this).

The game gets what is fun about zombies in videogames: slaughtering them in masses with a wide array of weapons.
Combined with the satisfactory feeling of smashing office equipment and cubicles, this is a simple actiongame done right.
The writing, especially the one-liners, is pretty bad (the buzzword-spewing zombies are pretty much the highlight), but the simple solution is to turn up the fantastic soundtrack and keep. Wrecking. Stuff!

I've felt like this.

I work in an office environment, and I knew what this game was going to be before I ever touched it. Super simplistic, easy to play, and the novelty would wear off fast. The value is in what you expect to get for your money, and whether or not you enjoy it. I certainly enjoyed it for about an hour, I'm not sure how long the actual game is, but an hour (or so) was enough.

The graphics are what they are, you can clearly see that this is your pixel-art swingymabob affair. Considering that, they look pretty good. I don't know if everyone in the game is meant to be fat, or if the artists that work on it just don't have a good idea of what people actually look like. This doesn't detract from it, at the very least they look funny. No one's going to grade the score of this game on the graphics.

I got it in a bundle, and for that price, it can't be beat. On sale for 50% off, still worth it. If I get an hour or two out of a game, without getting bored or annoyed with it, I figure it's worth the small amount I pay for it - especially when given to me in a bundle.

I've played much, much worse looking and much, much worse sounding games. The soundtrack is quite entertaining, most games like this have exactly one 35 second loop that just plays over, and over, and over. This game has a 35 second loop for each level! Kudos. The boss fights are rather entertaining, and you may find yourself dragging them out, because those are the most fun parts really.

You continually shoot, beat, or blow things up, you save your fellow coworkers that are given sarcastic titles, and you unlock weapons throughout the game by beating levels. You can literally sit back in a corner when being faced with a mob and just swing a telephone over your head until they're all finished and then go pick up your ammo and powerups, so there's no real challenge to it.

You type too much, I'm not reading all of that version

If you work in an office environment and you've had a bad day, you will blow off steam (pardon the pun, hurrhurr) by playing this game. I got it in a bundle and I'm totally satisfied with it. It's leaps and bounds better than a lot of the crap that gets Greenlit. For under 5 bucks, if you get an hour out of this game you've gotten your moneys worth. Entertaining music, simple gameplay, and manages to do what it sets out to do. The humor isn't that funny, even for office humor, the voice acting isn't that great, and the game randomly freezes/crashes from time to time. Again, not nearly as bad as I've seen other games.

Final Verdict

Want to kill an hour and it's on sale for 2 bucks? Yeah, go for it. It's good for that. No one is getting this and expecting a serious 20-hour investment of time. 6/10 overall. Fix the crashes.

This is quite possibly the best $1.75 I've ever spent on an Impulse buy. It plays somewhat similar to Hotline Miami, has an absolutely AWESOME chiptune soundtrack (go buy that too!), is chock full of tongue-in-cheek references to game, movie and TV tropes, and is a great way to vent some stress at the end of the day. The storymode cutscenes and one-liners constantly had me chuckling while I slaughtered my way though hordes of zombies, first with weaponized office supplies, and later with some tried-and-true classics. It's just good mindless fun and glib humor.

Totally worth a buy if you have some spare cash on your account. Seriously.

I do recommend Corporate Lifestyle Simulator. I'm not sure how long the game is but I do think it's great for a short fix now and then. Pumpin soundtrack, smashing lots of things, lots of office supplies turned weapon, zombie killing, simple and fun.

The voice acting on the other hand can be summed up with a quote from Borderlands 2:
"Apologies, but when [CLS voice actors] speak, I feel my brain cells committing suicide, one by one."
Thankfully you can skip the cut scenes.

Some people like controller. I'm a Nuclear Throne fanatic so I personally prefer keyboard and mouse. It is much easier to aim.

I might purchase it at $5 if I'm feeling rich and careless but the current sale price of $1.24 seems like a perfect price if you're unsure.
