(Hint: Don't get caught outside your base after dark.)

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.

I was thinking Metal Slug when I bought this game but it's not nearly as fulfilling despite some very sparse visual similairties. Overall, the art reminds me of Dragonball Z more than Metal Slug and the gameplay is much less refined. There are some systems that could have been added to make the obvious frustrations of the game much less annoying and it's disappointing to see that they were overlooked. The clock really could have used some units instead of a very low-res set of imagery, the resolution maximum seems a bit weird (1330 X something?), the game gives clear instructions regarding the simple things that the player can figure out on their own (WASD to move, click mouse to fire) but says nothing at all about things like bonus cash (scrap), leveling your character, what building boxes will actually do for you, etc. The method of zombies appearing and clustering is also very frustrating, as is the method of controlling your aiming: there's no way to change your aim and field of view at night to the exact 180-degree opposite direction. The game will rush the character's aim there as fast as it can but this can be very jarring at night to see your flashlight beam constantly sweeping up to the sky on its way to/from your extreme right or left. Not a good choice.

This is a fun little game. You've got your three main sides from WW2 working together vs. zombies.

Pros: Fun, inexpensive, the voice acting is good times all around.

Cons: Can be a little repetitive with so few areas. CPU intensive out of all proportion to the game. Super graphics setting: "This game runs heavy on the CPU, and your computer is below the minimum - you have been warned!" LOL. Yeah, it's a bit dated: FX 8350 but you know you're using sprites, right? Other possibility is that detection does not work well on linux, but the slowdown after playing for a while indicates sloppy programming.

It's okay for a dollar, or whatever it was I paid for it. Sadly, it only opened once, and I havent been able to get it to start again. If anyone has any tips on how to remedy this issue, that would be neato. I tried deleting all local content, and then re-installing.

Overall, if it's on sale for dirt cheap, kind of worth it. Full price, I wouldn't get it, it's basically a flash game.

Nice Indie Zombie Survival [KAMGUSTA's REVIEW]

First of all, do not let yourself set off by the "old style" 2d graphics: this is a stylistic choice and you will be soon enought acquained with. Game wants to put you on the old '80 coin-op ages and it manages to!

You have to survive hordes of zombies that, nights after nights, became stronger and stronger. In the first night there will be only greenish half naked and slow ones, then superfast blues will arrive, so stronger red ones... then fatty ones, little ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s and powerful giants!!!

Game takes a little inspiration with left for dead: you'd best shoot zombies in the head, fatty ones will vomit on you and you can do close combat even with a fry pan!

As days passes you will gain more and more "scrap" (game currency) to upgrade your weapons and house.

I only managed to get to level 10, then it gets harder and harder... but I had a great time! I also restarded from the beginning a couple of times just because I learn new, more profitables ways to fight off zombies and so to give me a better edge on fighting them...

Game is VERY simple: this is a plus in the first hours of play, but then it means it gets pretty repetitive (even if the difficulty reach VERY high levels!)... I don't think I'll play it again! :-(

Best played with Keyboard and Mouse
Recommended Buy Price < 3$
Score 7/10

Deadly 30 is a 2D indie sidecrolling mouse based shooter where you goal is to survive hordes of zombies. Brought to you by an indie developer team which worked on such documentaries as Black Sunshine, how to wear pants and other works on Newgrounds, the game has a distinct artstyle and humor, from diarrhea to The German's melee weaponry. In terms of gameplay, you must collect scrap used to upgrade things and buy/make ammo for night when the hordes come. The game isn't too difficult due to the ability to medikit spam, and that The German, is overpowered with the shotgun (as they should be). The majority of the early waves can be beaten easily if you explore and even stay out at night and put the majority of your points into armor/speed upgrades. The story is generic zombie fair and there are enjoyable cutscenes throughout, however it is more of an afterthought with the game's focus on gameplay/survival. The flaws in this game are the arbitrary lock ups and frames per second drops, which can be dealt with by pausing, so it isn't gamebreaking, and that there are limited options for the game (although for one of this nature its not needed). The game despite the overall objective, is relatively short to complete. Overall its recommended as a casual sidescrolling survival shooter experience.

There is a good game to had here if it would be properly patched. You can still play it, have fun with it like I did, but you need to be aware that the game is stuck in the highest difficulty setting permanently: not just because of how relentless the Zombies are but also because of unpredictable lagg. (There is a forum post on how to deal with the lag for Windows 8 users.)

A really good game in terms of being a survival horror and action game and the challange. It's really hard to live through the nights of zombie swarms of the World War II... The good side, everything you achieved and unlocked remains for the rest of the game too, making easier the start of a new game. The only thing negative thing I felt, it would be great to played a co-op from the point you find the other two survivors, because most of the times, the AI of the other survivors go crazy, and shooting the floor of the roof.
