That would be a fun game but for some fatal flaws I cannot recommend it. Let's get to the usual pros & cons

Pros:
- shooting zombies is usually fun
- we have shop and basic levelling
- when you find other survivors game gets more fun

Cons:
- RNG when it comes to finding survivors - you can play more than an hour and find no one
- without other survivors the game is hard
- one fatal flaw - endless night glitch. It seems that when you move from area to area some in game counter is reset and you cannot finish a level. Well, there are 30 levels (nights) in the game. I've got stuck at 5th. Well, poor luck I guess.
- poorly optimised - somehow this game can drop in fps rate so bad it's like watching a slideshow. Batman Arkham Knight did not drop FPS rate and that's the whole different level of hardware requirements.

So there is no point in playing a game in which there is a chance that you won't be able to finish it due to some random bug. If not for that and small chance to find other survivors I would give thumbs up.

I think this game is quite good, however, I believe the creators should add more resolution settings, game volume settings, and add more weapons/ upgrades.

Tank, Nikolai and Miss Richtofen, find themselves stranded between the mountains, cornfields, castle and snow pass, all seperated from the other. With only Tank starting in the bunker, he must find the other two and bring them back to safety as they try and survive 30 scary nights as they await they best friend Takeo's return as he makes his way to save them in that all important helicopter...
Yet beware as the nights go on the danger is more violent, as the zombies follow them from the past they are greeted with new foes. After Captain America did his duty and the Red Skull was killed, he joined forces with the long dead corpse of Hitler himself. Together they found a sad lonely boomer who realised he no longer wanted to be L4D...
They were the perfect team, and with the help of the ghost of Boba Fett they managed to make a clone army, bigger than the stars themselves had seen. It was glorious, it was wonderful, IT WAS the wrong game completely XD
This game is epic for sure, i have enjoyed it so much, including of thinking about this mad story to go along with it XD. This is a great buy, super fun can be tricky and worth every penny you spend. Woop for Zombie Madness XD

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.
