Thank you for creating a game that was thoroughly enjoyable (if not mindless fun)!
It was such a satisfying feeling to have made it to the chopper with all 3 characters alive.
I honestly didn't think I would enjoy it as much as I did but after finding a fix for the lag issues, the undead body count just started piling high and up!!

5/7 would play again!

I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS GAME AT ITS CURRENT PRICE POINT, but would in at least a 50% off promo. Putting this at the top since Steam only allows us a rating of YES or NO.

Warning: I played this game mostly in offline mode, so my playtime stat is not accuratelly reflected on Steam. I did play it from start to finish (the full 30 days).

Deadly 30 is a very simple and straightforward 2D survival game. You are tasked with surviving 30 days in a zombie infested area. The game has 2 distinct phases. The first one is the exploration phase that happens during the day. During this time, you are encouraged to leave your base and scavenge for the in-game currency called "scraps" that are found either on the ground pretty much everywhere, by disassembling vehicles you find in the wilderness to turn them into scraps / shooting boxes filled with scraps and ammo or as drops you get from killing zombies. In this phase, you will not meet many zombies, and they will attack you mostly, if not only, from the front.

During the night, however, your vision is restricted, and you can only see the direction you point your flashlight and gun at. The zombie horde also attacks more fiercely and from both sides indiscriminately, so the game encourages you to seek shelter in your base. Also, if the night falls and you are in one of the wilderness areas, you cannot change locations until dawn.

The scraps you collect can be used in your HQ to purchase defenses for your base that range from boxes to fences and, later on, turrets, to armor and gun upgrades. You can also purchase more ammo for your guns and medkits. The base itself is just a very small 2 store building with a generator in the middle.

You start the game with a single survivor, but you can find 2 more placed in one of the 4 different areas you can explore - a mountain area, a cornfield, a snow field and a castle. Each survivor uses only one gun type - the american soldier wields machine guns or assault rifles, the russian soldier uses rifles (and later on ,something more bizarre) and the german soldier (who happens to be a woman) carries a shotgun. I have the suspicion they both always appear at the same area, but I can't confirm it. You can instantly switch between each of your survivors, and the other 2 you are not currently controlling will default to AI bots. The AI is decent enough for this game, and will fall back if you do and assume high ground positions in your HQ to cover each side. It works.

One of my main gripes with the game is how little is explained to the player about the system mechanics. An example is the combat boots upgrade. There is no tooltip or any information whatsoever about what it does. I presume it makes you faster, but I didn't notice any difference with the first upgrade, and by the time I got the second one, I was conditioned to walk using short hops instead of walking anyway. I also had no idea the little boxes you find everywhere where supposed to be shot. I thought using the action key (E) would open them, but nothing happened when I tried. I started thinking that was a marking spot for camps made by the other 2 survivors, and finally just imagined it was a background item. Only when the NPC survivor shot it and I saw it taking damage did I realize it could be looted by destroying it. There are some other little things that the game could tell you to make your life easier - like showing you can fix your fence / dismantle vehicles as it is being attacked while simultaneously shooting at the assailants, or explaining the function of the generator, as I have yet to understand what it does, and never saw any zombies attacking it even when they breached my defenses. Is it powering the guns? I have no idea. Do I get a game over if they destroy it? They seem more interested in attacking my survivors than the generator. This is especially confusing since you get a message saying "Protect your generator" when the nightfalls and you are outside of the base, but even staying outside the full night will not compromise it. Oh, and the game could have told you that resting in the bed to make the night come faster also proportionally recovers your health. Granted, this is sort of videogame common sense, but this is a simple game not intended for a hardcore audience, so a little tooltip or something would be appreciated.

There isn't a lot of enemy variety. Off the top of my head, there are 3 basic melee zombies with varying colors that only change their walk speed, 2 giant types of zombies that only change their durability and strenght, 2 fat "boomer" type of zombies that explode when killed and spreads a sticky liquid upon death that hinders your vision and seems to entice the horde to attack you (from both sides), a skeleton zombie, 2 types of dog zombies and bird zombies. It is, however, a short game, and as such, the low variety can be forgiven. At the start of the game, you will only see the basic melee zombie, but as you progress, others will start appearing, with certain nights having a theme with a certain enemy type being proeminent amongst the attacking horde.

The wilderness areas are also extremely repetitive. All that changes between them is that they sport a different floor and a different background each. They are functionally identical, and the exact same things spawn in all of them. There is no exploration to be done here beyond collecting the game currency. Once you realize that, you might even forsake going to the farther areas and, instead, just stay in a single wilderness area sweeping it clean and reloading the area by going to a different one, as this will cause new scrap / vehicle / box spawns to appear. Perhaps this can be abused to find the survivors very early, but I didn't try.

The game is also very, very easy, as long as you dont waste scrap with inane things like boxes. Just focus on finding a survivor as soon as possible, take advantage of the lower enemy rate in the first few days to explore a lot and stay outside exploring if needed, upgrade the fence to T2 as soon as you can and upgrade your weapons to T3, and get the sentry gun as soon as you can afford. After that, work on getting those T4 weapons, starting with the russian guy, who has the best T4 weapon of them all. The last day can be a little hard if you lack enough sentries or enough fence upgrades to stop the horde, and since the game overwrites the last save with the current day save, you could mess up your chance at completing the game if you reach day 29 with insufficient resources and a bad upgrade path. But don't worry - as long as you explore during all 30 days, you will have plenty to get all weapons to T4, your fence to T4, your full armor and some sentries. You can live without the boots if you double tap the forward button constantly to do short hops, but the boots might help marginally even while doing that. Still, I'd suggest delaying the boots and the armor upgrade, and dont waste money buying bullets for the russian and german soldiers, as you will get plenty of both from exploring alone.

Overall, this game feels like a polished flash game, with graphics that resemble some of the nicer Newsground flash games, and the lack of depth and longevity that comes with them. The lack of an endless mode further exacerbates the longevity problem, qualifying this game as no more than a nice time waster. The lack of controller support is another demerit to the title. Go ahead and get it if you enjoy this kind of game, but I'd say wait for at least a 50% off promotional offer, as the current price is not justified by its content, even though it is already cheap at its full price.

This game is without a doubt a great game.Although the characters can be some what stupid,the cycle through day and night is great.In night you defend you base,and rebuild barricades.In day you go out to colect scrap.Even though I only have like 10 mins on time i watched videos on this and it has been on my wishlist for whenever it came out.There are 3 survivors that you can find and they can be really stupid you survivors are a Nazi girl,a german soilder,and you.You can switch characters and get new weapons for them.Scrap is very important in this game you use it to upgrade your barracades,make guns,get ammo,andmake turrets.Anyways it is a great game and if you dont like this then go look at This War of Mine the're both great games so id consider getting both.

Finally finished the game with 100% achievements so I guess I'd give it a review.

If you've ever play "The Last Stand" which is a web browser based indie flesh game then this game is kina like the exact same thing though I would still prefer that game than this any day of the year.

Its a pretty straight forward "fight and survive" "and Kill zombies" game. If you want (or lovessss) some mindless shooting/killing zombies then this game might be for you.

I actaully really loved the game, gave me quite a few hours to kill. Only problem is that once you reached a certain point, the game starts to lag. If the devs could somehow fix this lag then this is just perfect mindless fun.

9/10 IF there were no lag
but sadly 5/10 because of this lag. Pretty much ruined the much fun it provided.

I really liked this game. However, I am on a mac, (I know, stone me for using it) and there is no way to go fullscreen. It is just always in one of those tiny windows. It is big enough that I can play the game fine, but sometimes I accidentaly click out of the game. It might just be that the game window is supposed to be that small. Whatever the case, Great game. Much Reccomend. 10/10 IGN

this game pretty much feels like a flash browsergame brought to steam.
it's not really bad but it's not good either.

the performance is the real downer of this one. you get regular fps drops and laggy gameplay for a couple of seconds for no reason and it's really hard trying to control your survivors and not die during that time.

it took me 8 1/2 hours to complete the game 100%. then i uninstalled it and never missed it for a second.

Broken on my Win7 64 Ultimate!

I've tried all, newest directx 9.0c, graphic driver, verified game cashe, write to developers...but nothing helps.
Devs cannot help me, they said it should work on my rig specs.
Still, game send me some error message but in the background game counts time so I've got trading cards because of 2hrs "playtime"

Anyway, than I took game from torrents (it's legal since I have bought it before, right?), and guess what-it works!

But, game difficulty is set to Insane or Nightmare, name it whatever you like. Cannot be finished, cannot endure even to night no10.
So I've used cheat to get some Alien Riffle and a lot of money.
Not so funny considering all.
And beware, if you can run Crysis 3 like a charm-expect lag here!
So I not recommend this unfinished work at all.

They say that all good things must come to an end. Sadly, that is true for the Headup Gamesathon. Today is day ten of ten. I feel that we’re ending things on a really positive note with one of the most popular and well known games in the Headup Games catalogue. Deadly 30 is a survival game where the player must build and develop their home base in order to aide them to defeat waves of zombies. It’s one of the most simple games on Steam and is aimed at mindless fun.

Does it achieve the fun experience that it was hoping for? In my opinion it does. It’s mindless. It doesn’t take a lot of thought to be able to play. It’s perfect for short periods of game play but can extend into lengthier periods so long as you don’t find it monotonous. You can complete the game in about three hours but the game is made with replayability in mind. Strategies can be refined, altered, etc. You can try any number of different things. Some may work better than others. How you decide to play is almost entirely up to you.

The only thing that I really want to criticize about the game is that it was made in flash. Flash, as everyone knows, is prone to running wildly inconsistently. This means that the game can play slowly or sluggishly even on the most modern of machines. Had it been made in almost any other engine the game could – would – have been optimized a lot better than what it is.

Deadly 30 is a simple game but it is fun and that’s all that you can possibly ask for from this. It’s not an award winner but is playable and accessible to most.

All right game- though there isn't much to it. If you're looking for a very simple 2D shooter, it's average at best for an indie game.

I wouldn't waste time on it though.

Really just bought this game to support the art creator Gonzossm.
(I wonder wat happen to his channel?)

Update: The game does get a bit tedious if you get both of your buddies killed. You have to go back to one of the four areas just to get them back which take up a whole day. The result of this is having to fight your way back to your bunker during the night which can be frustrating.

I think overall this is a pretty fun flash game, definitely a good "spur of the moment oh this one's really cheap so why not" buy. You have a base to defend yourself in, but during the day you can explore the area around you to find scrap metal (currency) and survivors, and the areas change each day so it's an interesting feature. My only complaints are the inexplicable lack of multiplayer and the fact that instead of being able to choose your class right off the bat, as you play the game you can find survivors and magically switch between them. Which is... I dunno, just really weird. But again, it's a good 3 dollar buy, if you think you'll like it you probably will. It gets really difficult really fast, so it does take a while to beat. Luckily it saves after every night, so i f you make one big mistake you don't have to go back to the beginning. Also, the soundtrack is really well done, so that's a plus.

I think a sequel will definitely be worth investing in, and if they create multiplayer for this it would be a very fun experience and worth the money. Keeping in mind this was a two man team making a game for $5, I think it's worth supporting, and I would like to see what they can create in the future.

Deadly 30’s storyline is essentially 3 very different people, trying to survive in a WWII zombie apocalypse. You start as a rugged american soldier and recrute, or rather, join up with a German Nazi girl and vodka loving Russian. The playing is able to switch from the 3 characters, each with their own weapon skillsets.


The Gameplay revolves around a survive at night and build during the day, but quickly changes to exploring during the day. The 2d game provides 2 directions to go; left and right. once heading in one of those directions you have a chance to fight more docile zombies and collect ammo and scrap, the games currency. When the morning after a wave comes you get a modest amount of scrap to build better walls, fix the walls, buy ammo and guns, upgrade your armour and boots, purchase medkits, boxes and turrets. Scrap can also be acquired by killing zombies and picking them off the round. The farther left or right you go, the more zombies there are, but also more scrap. The world has a wall at the far left and right but at the end there are always chests, shooting these will give the playing more scrap. There are also “Big scrap” On the outer areas of the map. Old cars or tanks that will provide a large scrap reward after a few seconds. You also can then find the other characters and play them once they join you.


The map isn't overly large and is easy to run from your centre base to one side and back before night comes, implying there were no zombies to slow you down. Buying boots helps with the scrap collecting but if you're too far away from the base, surviving at night is almost almost imposable on later rounds.


The tower defence aspect of the game isn't the best of its kind, however after unlocking the turrets in the store and getting all 3 survivors, it becomes much more fun.


Deadly 30 has an old-school style of flash game graphics, that being stated, it's not necessarily a bad thing. The animations are a little rough but all in all the game looks pretty good. The AI of the characters you're not playing are a little dumb as they like to fall behind and stand on the roof of the basecamp.



There are a few little things this game does wrong:


The difficulty ramps up very quick, if you’re new to the game
You have to play and replay to unlock most of the store items
The game takes a surprisingly high amount of ram to run
The lack of real story makes the game less compelling
The lack of online or co-op makes it a rather lonely game
The controls sometimes lag behind making it hard to control your player in bad situations, sometimes killing the player
The voice acting isnt the best
The player will auto knife a zombie when it comes in range, this should have been an easy fix and have a knife button.



Deadly 30 does a lot of things right:


The characters, although static, are still rather comical.
The achievements are rather easy to get
The game has steam playing cards
Survivors can be found again after they die

Overall the game is fun, implying you don't mind a challenge and minor issues. If you like the style of game, then it is worth the $5.49 (CAN) price tag, however if you’re not a fan of the 2D shooter style, then try to get it on sale. Overall, I liked the game however, I did suck at it.

So where to start... I like the art style and overall idea/gameplay of Deadly 30. However it feels like it is lacking a certain polish and certain aspects. The game would be great with some good old fashion co-op! Even if the co-op were just a horde mode style of play. I think co-op alone could change my entire outlook on this game. The other main issue, at least at the time of me writting this, is that there is a very noticeable drop in frame rates(seems to happen mostly during day/night cycle switches). It feels like really bad lag! It is still playable but definetly detracts from the game. All that said if you have a chance to get this in a bundle, or for at least 75% off I would recommend getting this title. And although it's been out almost a year I hope there are some updates and follow up along the way for this game.

This is a game that is causing a bit of contraversy,"ITS A FLASH GAME" and so it may be but another little game about a certain little boy who gets thrown down into the cellar is also-and it hasent stopped that being a really big seller and a really well received and loved game.
Anyway back to the review,i really like this game and i will tell you why A-its addictive and B-its actually very challenging.
The graphics are ok,the sounds ok and everything in the game is ok-but thats not what games are about (or they didnt used to be back in the day when graphics were blockey and sounds used to blib and blob) they are about fun and the challenge of learning a game inside out.
This game does not do what a lot of other games are guilty of "HAND HOLDING",you start as the american solider and get dropped in at the deep end and thats exactally what it is,doesnt tell you what to do just sets you of out after defending the base for the first night.You will eventually end up with 3 different characters and beleive me each has their own strenghs and weakneses (when you upgrade their weapons each one comes into their own in different ways) and trying to keep them all alive is one hell of a hard job as the game just gets harder and harder.
After a few nights you really do start to struggle to defend the base and yourselves if you havent made the right choices in what to upgrade either be it gear,guns,defensive wall ect.Of course all this costs scrap and you get this by wandering around outside the base in one of the other locations on offer,now some scrap lies there waiting to be picked up but some you get from shooting crates or by turning vehicles like tanks and jeeps into scrap (now you just push one button to do this and hold it in-but you must also defend yourself whilst you do this).Collecting the scrap you return to base before darkness falls (and beleive me thats where you are at you best defence wise-oh dear try a few nights outside the base and see what i mean).
Then like i have said the game shows its true light,you will play through a few times until you survive even 15 nights of the expected 30 to get out to the helicopter-and thats what its all about learning to play the game LITERRALLY.
You will sink or swim by the choices you make and thats good (sort of reminds me of a lot of good games where you learn from your mistakes and get better on every playthrough).
Eventully you will make it and then that will be it,and for me that is the worst thing about the game as i dont think i would play through it much after i have escaped and beaten the 30 DEADLY NIGHTS,and thats ok as i will certainly have some fun on my way to getting out ALIVE (with all three characters OH YEAH AS IF HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA)

Deadly 30 is a simple, but hard game. You control a survivor and your goal is to survive the night, while you go out and find materials to upgrade your hideout and find survivors. Movement is limited, because it's played from a 2D sidescroller perspective where you can go only left or right.

It starts off with easy to kill zombies, and after pretty much every night a new zombie is introduced. By night 10 you'll probably die because you have to manage your survivors as well as fighting off some of the tougher zombies. You have to make sure that they have enough ammo, health packs, or a better gun and do not let them fight off zombies by themselves, or they will probably get killed in the process.

The faces of the characters are absolutely hideous, but the rest of the game looks just fine. The resolution options are limited though so I had to play it in a window to make it look somewhat decent. The (limited) voice acting is decent and actually better than expected.

Deadly 30 is fun for at least a couple of hours, and the price is right. Grab it when you can.

Disappointed. I'll admit, I was drawn in by some simple zombie-shooting fun at only about three dollars. Mostly good feedback, stupid but fun. How can one possibly get buyers remorse over three dollars?

Pretty easily, actually. The thing is that the game just isn't fun to play. As I played it, the entire time I was fantasizing about playing something more fun or getting some work done. It's not entertaining. It's boring at best, frustrating at worst.

The game looks, feels, plays and tastes like a poorly polished free flash game. The only difference is that it's three dollars, and that's on sale. It's horrifically repetitive, all the weapons feel the same, all the fences seem the same, there is just nothing that dynamically changes the gameplay at all. Walk forwards and shoot while spasmatically crouching for extra damage, and sometimes holding E by things. It literally never goes past that, the game gets old about 15 minutes in.

To make matters worse it's very unpolished. The AI is at first hilariously stupid, quickly becoming infuriatingly idiotic. The animations are ♥♥♥♥-poor, the artstyle is an eye-strain, the gunplay is weak. Again, it just not fun to play.

Don't get lured in by the tiny price, it's not even worth the time.

At first: Reason why I tried this out was because I got it for 1€ from Hundle Bundle store. Was it worth it? Hell yeah!

I have tried many (very) cheap games (in price value) and I can say honestly this have been maybe best of them.

Game plot in short: You have to survive 30 days and nights. At first you play as American (who clearly loves his country) but later on you will meet Russian guy (who loves Vodka and Bears) and German woman (who likes to hit things using pan when those are close enough). American uses Rifles and SMG, Russian is sniper and German uses shotguns.

In gameplay this games is not best one. You can see they have used flash but it didn't stop me. Graphics are good ones in my opinion and I didn't face any bugs. There is only 5 zones. Two on left, two on right and the middle one.

So what you are supposed to do? How you should survive 30 days? Well you have your base. Best tactic to survive nights is stay at that base because you can build turrets there and they are really powerful. At least the better one. You can also build walls and stay behind them. And from base you can buy better weapons and armor. When night is over and day is coming you go to explore and try to get as much as possible currency to upgrade your armor and weapons. And to buy better wall and turrets.

Game have little good things like XP bar and achievements which are not so easible earnable or either ridiculously hard to get. I see those as little plus. Even though you can get your max level (which is more account bound than character bound).

Anyway I recommend this game to everyone who likes "Shoot 'em up" -like games. Or who just likes to combine really simple tower defence to really simple exploring or who just likes simple Indie games. And yes, this is simple game but I see it as good thing!

PS. Oh and if you want to get achievements remember that they are game session bound. So if you save game and come back after that your progress is _not_ saved. As example I could say achievement "Golden Shells" achievement where you have to shoot 20 000 bullets.

Game seems to lag randomly for no reason causing movement to continue without pushing keys, cursor to continue and gunfire to continue even though these actions aren't being taken. Pretty much unplayable when your character continues moving towards zombies and get killed or when you waste ammo from your gun continueing to fire.
