Endless Night mode is now available

Today's update adds new game mode: Endless Night. In this mode there's no base building or shopping, only brainless zombie-shooting. It's designed as a short distraction so that a single playthrough takes just a couple minutes. There are also three new achievements related to this mode.

Other features included in this update:

  • More responsive user interface
  • Keyboard controls mapping
  • Leaderboard anti-cheat tools
  • Better multithreading support
  • Option to adjust amount of blood
  • Minor bug fixes

While it took quite a long time to release this update, the behind-the-scenes work done will allow future updates to be released more frequently - the next one will be released in few weeks.

People write reviews for this game like it's the new AAA title that is diabolical with beautiful graphics, game mechanics, and all that jazz, which delineates a terrible game if one were to quickly glance at the reviews. However, people fail to realize that this is supposed to be a fun little zombie shooter, heck, that's why it's priced at $2.

That being said, some of the game mechanics are a little wonky, but that just makes the game more enjoyable right? Also to mention, please check out the screenshots before hand, I don't see why people complain if they don't fully check out the product. Would you purchase a new computer without checking out the specifications? I certainly would not. So why be too myopic to glance at the entirety of the game. I personally thought this game was quite enjoyable for $2 and I even 100% it in terms of achievements in 2.5 hours (you can do it faster if you don't screw around, but it was nice to goof off). It's a nice zombie defense game to play with friends when you want to goof off and just enjoy yourself.

Lastly, you will certainly enjoy this game if you have ever played the game "Box Head" as it brings back the intense moments of running for your life and wondering why you didn't purchase more ammo. Combine that with some achievements, and you've got a steal deal for $2.

Overall, this game was quite nice for a $2 zombie shooter, please don't expect it to be the next AAA title. Yet Another Zombie Defense brings back the feelings of "Box Head" and even throws in some achievements and inane game play for you and your friends.

Yet Another Zombie Defense is a small, unpretentious game that manages to do what it wants to do quite well. The objective is very clear: defend yourself against ever increasing hordes of attacting zombies (hey - that's in the title!). So I went into it, as in quite some of these small and cheap games, I do admit, for the trading cards, and since I love games with Steam achievements. During the first encounters thing got on in a rather predictable way. I managed to survive several waves of attack circling around a single lamp-post with nothing but darkness surrounding me. There was the ability to buy new weapons and ammo in between the rounds, but no upgrade possibilities for the weapons, to name but one thing.
Also, I could place some fences, but that produced a rather weird result, since the fences can't be turned around so stand as soldiers in a row awaiting the onslaught. And slaughtered I got, out there on my own in the darkness.

This morning, I decided to give the multiplayer co-op a go, and made my game open to anyone who wanted to drop in or out. And that made quite a difference: people came and went, staying for some seconds or longer, and suddenly it proved to be quite some fun to blast away at those pesky zombies. I do have to admit I find it difficult to watch other players jumping around like grasshoppers on speed - be a man, stand your ground and shoot!!

All in all, a small diversion for the dead moments in between the more serious games, but hey, this game didn't pretend pretend to be anything more than just that.

Gameplay: 18/30
Graphics: 10/20
Sound: 5/10
Technical state: 15/20 (co-op is very easy to join/host)
Replayability: 6/10 (for those who want to do the achievements I guess)
Personal appreciation: 5/10

Overall: 69/100
Go and buy it when you love this kind of game.

It's a pretty simple game, you just basically have to shoot a lot of zombies while trying to stay alive.
With some friends to play it with or by just yourself, it's a nice way to spend some time.
Theres a few little bugs that are really annoying, like the fact that zombies do damage to you before performing the animation of the strike but oh well.

If you like holding down W/A/S/D and left mousebutton and then eventually (and inevitably) get overrun by zombies. This is your game! Only one type of zombies. Two types of barricades. One turret. Also none of you progress carries on to the next game. Should you BUY this game? Simple answer: no.

Edit: I know 1,50€ isn't much, but you can get better for free. So why bother?

Edit:Edit: Note that this review was written before the game got any updates and only holds true for the very first version of the game released on steam.
