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.

Very easy to learn game, the difficulty gradient becomes increasingly steep as the levels progress. Game gets pretty laggy at times, so find friends that are closer to where you are to host the game. Great emphasis on teamwork and resource management, as late game you find yourselves running out of funds. Developers says future DLCs will be free of charge, hope they hold true to their word :D
8/10

If you like the tower defense, if you like classic stick shooters, if you like trial and error defense tactics...

Buy this game.

pro tip: For playing with your steam friends, someone has to start a game and set it to allow friends. Also you may have to allow it to accept "anyone" if you have issues with the friends option.

This game is absolutely worth 2.99 if you have at least 1 friend to play it with.

My opinion is that in it's current rate of content and enjoyable challenge I'd say its a fair game that if you like the genre is worth 9.99.

Game sounds are a bit generic, but they aren't expected to be stellar yet and for the price you get enough.

The animations, while repetive are very smooth and mesmeric when you enter the Flow state of mind, and become completely mentally engrossed in trying to keep yourself along with your team and your defenses off the ground.

I recommend it for harcore zombie killers who want to vegitate, and for the casual pick up and drop occasional scream fest for anyone.

Enjoy!

Zombiedefense with basebuilding - Turrets, barricades. Yep, should be enough to get you goin and buy this game.

But well, heres what I experienced.


Gameplay

Shooting feels very smooth, zeds get fast very strong and you need to get the best weapons asap. You can put every weapon on your turrets so there are a lot of combinations to experiment.

The walking animation of the playable survivors look a bit...strange. The legs are swinging around in the air like you are swimming, no idea.

Multiplayer

Sorry but no matter what game I join, I have such incredible lags that its basically unplayable.

Endless Mode

So there was a patch recently adding a new gamemode called endless.

Too bad something went incredibly wrong with this mode, since it doesnt make any sense to shoot at the zeds, they spawn endless and you wont be able to pick up the loot they drop because else you will die.

When you play the endless mode it will look like this: You run around in a circle kiting the zeds around at the edge of the map trying to not get sandwiched. Shooting doesnt make any sense. Im not sure if this is the mode we want to play...

Dont know how endlessmode looks in multiplayer, but at least thats what you get in SP.

Yet another zombie defense is exactly what the title says, it is the very steriotypical zombie defense game, where it's impossible to win, the only goal is to survive as long as you can. By killing zombies, you get money, which you spend on things like turrets, weapon upgrades, pallisades to protect your self from attack, and ammo. A good game for the price, extremely cheap, (I got it with a 90% off coupon, do the math) you definetly can't go wrong with this one. Better than some others I've played, and at a cheaper price too. I would give it a 7/10. Btw: If I sold the cards I got through playing the game, I would get my money back and 3x what I spent in the 1st place on the game. Crazy. xD

I'd like to think this game has the potential to expand indefinitely. Though it would seem the developer is desperate for money and decided to create a game like this.

If I were to be able to see the future, it'd be lots of different types of survival maps, more weapons(hi-tech bizzare weapons would be awesome), types of zombies, since this game looks quite simple in terms of mechanics and graphics, the only issue is probably the designing process(creating epic looking environments, weapons, zombies, etc).

I'd recommend this game though.

Being a high schooler and having a history of playing the flash game called BoxHead i feel this game is the next step up. The game is easy to understand and easy to pick up and play. The aiming is a little weird but its not hard to get used to. So if you want a cheap game to spend your left over steam wallet i suggest this game.

This game is a great arcade-esque style shoot em' up and I adore it. I played for a few hours with a friend and it was a lot of fun but I have a few suggestions to improve gameplay:

1. SKILLS
-You can put a point after every round into a skill
-Skills could be like: accuracy, damage, run speed. and scavenger (get more from cash/supply drops)

2. GUN UPGRADES
-Pay to get various upgrades/attatchments to your guns
-Such as: incendiary (does dmg over time) explosive (hurts more than one target) or like an increase in damage, accuracy or firing speed

3.CHARACTERS
-We need just a little bit of character development, who is "The Girl"? Or "The SWAT"?
-I suggest adding MORE characters and giving them each starting attributes depending on who they are like: The SWAT gets a defense bonus due to his bulletproof vest.

4.TRAPS
-You should add more traps and trap like elements to the game
-Such as a bear trap that costs, say, $50 and you could put them in a 1/4 space of a normal tile
-Fire traps would be cool

5.PALISADES
-Palisades should decay with damage and you should have to pay to repair them
-The advantage of this would be you could add in palisade damage. As in they do damage to zombies based on how new and freshly repaired they are.

These are just a few suggestions that I thought could make this game better, even though it already is pretty addicting.

-Zac

P.S. Add some detail to the map, just a few cracks in the concrete or litter. Something to make it more immersive.

Bought this game for $1.50 for me and my friend seemed like an ok game that was cheap. Suddenly this game turned into endless fun for an hour or two screaming our asses off trying to live. For a cheap game it gives fun gameplay with you and your friend. I would recommend this game because it's cheap and fun (with no strings attached dlc,in-game purchases, etc..)

Not a very fun game unless you enjoy endless waves of pointless killing that has no real goal or reward. Even with a friend, this game was not fun at all.

Run in circles backwards shooting till wave ends, buy a gun and some ammo~ repeat.
