About This Game

Yet Another Zombie Defense is all about defending yourself against hordes of undead attacking you every night. However, when you're the only survivor struggling against waves of enemies who are getting stronger and stronger, your end is inevitable. The only important question is how long can YOU survive?

The game is a top-down arcade zombie shooter with strategy elements.

It's for gamers who like to put their skills to the test, find optimal strategy, and reach the highest spot on leaderboards! It also features online co-op mode, where you can blast zombies with up to three friends as well as player vs player deathmatch mode!

Considering even at full price, this costs less than a sandwich, you can't go wrong. It's actually a lot of fun to pick up and play with a friend (get the 2-pack for even cheaper!) and has full controller support too. Tense and satisfying.

A good price for a game that can provide a good amount of fun.
  • As I never tried Deathmatch Mode, I won't be able to provide much information about it. You can go against 3 other people while zombies increasingly grow in number and speed. Weapons are randomly scattered once in a while on the battlefield, even among undeads.

  • Endless Mode follows the same concept for what concerns Weapons (Randomly spawned on the field) Along with Power-Ups. Zombies will get faster and aggro will keep increasing. Ammunitions are never dropped, so you're forced to cycle through Weapons.

  • Defense Mode is what you'll probably play mostly: Survive at night and gather Money and Power-Ups (Health; Faster Run Speed; Faster Reload; Invisibility; Invulnerability; Grenades; Mines; Ammo) Dropped by Zombies. Daytime marks the moments where you can buy Weapons, stock up Ammunitions, Mines and Grenades and place bought Turrets and Barricades (Which comes in different variations). Turrets can mount different Weapons (Keep in mind that the Ammunition for that Weapon will depletes as faster as the number of zombies grow) And can be destroyed as easily as barricades. And while, by every night, Zombies will gain faster speed, higher damage resistance you too, every 3 nights, will gain 1 point to invest in Faster Reload Speed, Health Regen., More Health, Pickup Range and Faster Movement Speed.

    Getting the Achivements is not difficult and while the game is nothing special nor noteworthy, it will offer fun without stress or broken expectations. It does its job properly: Having fun while relaxing, killing without feeling guilty. They were dead already when I started.

Solid game for its price, twinstick shooter inspired by boxhead so gives me a nostalgia trip, best played with friends, shooting for that duo high score if it decides to register our attempts
Happy slaying

I genuinely don't belive games get better than this. It's captivating plot, It's emotion-stirring characters and It's fascinating graphics, just might make it the best game on the entirety of Steam. In the 9000+ hours of gameplay I've had in this game, it is safe to say, there will never be another like it. 79p is a joke, I'd give the devs my entire family to own this game.

Jokes aside this game is utter cow shart unless you play multiplayer with your friend. It's like they tried pretty hard at the beggining, but then just kinda gave up on making this game good.

I bought this game when it was on offer (for something like 49p) as a joke with my friends, but it genuinely turned out to be a good game, it is just so basic that it is fun, I would 100% reccommend this game to someone just looking to have fun in there spare time, it becomes even more fun when you play with friends, me and my 4 friends brough this on offer and as soon as the 30 second download was done (it seriously took 30 seconds xD) we was sold and we have all had at least if not more 10 hours of fun on this game, and that is not to say you cant have more, we have just not got round to it yet. In my opinion this game is worth it and if you can get it on offer its even better. ;)

This game isnt great. This game isnt terrible. Its right in the middle; a great way to kill time with friends. Arcade style shoot em up with progressively harder levels. Look how many hours of my life i've already lost to this. That should speak for itself.
