About This Game

Over 9000 Zombies! is top-down arcade action blown out of all reasonable proportions. An endless horde of zombies is coming your way, how long can you survive?




So you might have already sussed out that there’s a lot of undead after you. To stay alive you’re going to need this arsenal of over 20 weapons. Some you might recognize but others are very experimental. Whether you want to shoot, burn, blow up or microwave the zombies there’ll be a weapon for you.




Keeping the barrel of a gun between you and the zombies is a good start but you’ll want to stay out of the open when things get especially crazy. Scavenge scrap metal to build barricades for protection and deploy automated turrets for extra crowd control.




You don’t have to go it alone. Bring both trusted friends and talented strangers into your fold and team up against the hordes with 2 player online co-op and 4 player local co-op.




This level of slaughter needs some decent beats. Using cutting edge research techniques we have been able to isolate the optimum audio for efficient undead butchery. Scratch that trigger-finger itch to the sound of intense electro-rock from Clearside.




The zombies will never stop. They’re only going to get faster and nastier. Keep your eyes peeled for flaming zombies, highly poisonous zombies, zombie animals, giant eyeballs and even the risen remains of political figures. You’re going to die out there so make sure you leave with a bang.




Create your own unique levels to test your mettle and the power of the zombie hordes. Upload them to the Steam Workshop and show the world your creations.

Looking to invest your time in a short game that, despite being just that, is also very entertaining? Well, Over 9000 Zombies! brings many things to the table - over 9000 different helpings in fact (just kidding).

---------------------------------------------------------

Through a retro styled theme, Over 9000 Zombies! does what many other zombie survival games can't. It brings thrills and fun into the realm of an already bloated genre that verge on impossible, annoying, complex, or expensive. For the low low price of $1,49, and for a two-pack no less, you will most certainly be entertained for long periods of time. Take a step back into the late 1990s. Experience gaming through its purest lens. This is honestly a great little title that you can play with any friend.

Don't let the term "zombie survival" and "low price" detract you from picking up this game, however. Where games like 7 Days to Die and Left 4 Dead 2 are more prominent and come to mind, this game - of course - doesn't compare. What it has, though, definitely makes up for what it lacks. There is a huge amount of content that is offered: a vast amount of options in terms of guns and turrets. Various enemies that you have to adapt to; many maps as well. Strategising comes down to a "T" if you really want to master the game and get all the achievements.

There is also a Leaderboard, where the best players have survived over 300+ nights. Challenge yourself in this aspect and, in the end, see why this game will give you all the bang for your buck.

---------------------------------------------------------

Pros
+ Custom maps!
+ Day and night cycle
+ Leaderboard challenges!
+ Various maps to choose from
+ The soundtracks actually aren't that bad
+ You can't go wrong with a retro styled game
+ Shoot, shoot, and shoot - that's all there is to it
+ Achievements and trading cards are always a bonus
+ Good soudtrack that doesn't take away from quality of game
+ Simple graphics and sounds effects makes for great gameplay
+ Multiplayer option offers even more fun with friends at a cheap cost
+ Very straightforward, no tricks or gimmicks when it comes to a zombie survival game
+ Easy on the computer; hardly any lag despite there being tons of things going on at once
+ Ability to come back into the game as long as your friends survive (MP). It isn't too easy where you aren't punished, however - if you die, you have time added on to your spawn time, so it is both forgiving and punishing
+ Huge collection of weapons to upgrade, customise, or utilise; for such a cheap game, you would think that your options would be more limited, but no. Over 9000 Zombies! truly impresses with the amount of content offered

Cons
- No pause button; you'll have to survive however long you can in one continuous sit-down
- I'm not sure if this is the cause at all, but for some reason the person who joins a game doesn't get "special achievements" unlocked. I have killed over 1000 crows, eyes, etc. for sure, yet haven't unlocked any of those. I have also killed the bosses numerous of times and have yet to unlock them as well. I believe the host is the only way capable of unlocking said things. If anyone can confirm or deny, that would be great!

---------------------------------------------------------

Honestly, Over 9000 Zombies! comes at a time when one needs a break from similar games. It is a simple yet charming contender that doesn't ask for much. As of the time of this writing, I would highly suggest that you get this game if you're interested in playing a casual and, overall, relaxing zombie survival game.

Overall
9/10

Now HERE is a game that actually does progression VERY well! All too often games like this are sub-par because they are either too easy or too hard. To be fair, I'm what you could call a seasoned gamer, but still, I'd say this game has a very fair progression model for the average player. (It has a plethora of Steam Achievements that pair nicely with the progression, too!) The graphics aren't too special, but the sound design/soundtrack is very fitting and the combat is quite satisfying. (I got it 90% off for $1 so I could not be happier!) I haven't tried it with friends yet, but I'm assuming it'd be a blast. Now get out there and huck 'n' chuck those grenades until you just can't anymore.

Early Access Review
Posted: June 25, 2014
Early Access games come in all manner of different states. I would say this one is in a perfect place to be entering Early Access. The game itself is already playable and fun, but I can still see where they can add even more in the future. The co-op works flawlessly, you don't have to jump through any hoops to play with a friend. I ran into very few bugs while playing and none of them were game breaking.

Over 9000 Zombies! is a Tower Defense like game, where the thing you're defending, in essence is yourself. You can place turrets, of which there are currently 6 to choose from, you can place a block barricade, and there are roughly 20 weapons to collect. Zombies drop health, grenades, scrap (with which to build), and on the rare occasion, new weapons.

I played only co-op, but I can see it being a little difficult for someone in single player. After one play through, we found ourselves searching for a more defensible building, as well as working out strategies to survive specific zombies on later, tougher days.

I look forward to future updates. I hope to see more turret types, more maps, a map editor, perhaps more zombie types and more zombie 'bosses'.

Overall, I highly recommend it!

Early Access Review
Posted: September 16, 2014
It's not bad if you're playing to reach Day 10, after that it just becomes an (easy) grind-fest. I made it to day 27 (12th place on the leaderboards for kicks) before I gave up. Once you get a powerful enough weapon, you can just stand there and hold the mouse button while using your other hand to feed your mouth with chips.

I can see this game getting a lot better, but:

Nays (as of now):
- I found very little use for most of the weapons, there's a lot, but you'll probably never use them.
- Items that give you temporary stat bonuses don't last long enough/aren't very interesting, I couldn't justify picking them up.
- Block placement is fun, but I never seemed to be able to collect enough resources to build more than 8 blocks at a time.
- Music starts to get annoying, it's not a bad track, I just wish there was more than NUNUNUNUneeeNUNUeeeeeNUNU...
- You can't be bothered to look at the UI early on, it's very small and should be more noticeable.
- The cursor/crosshair is also difficult to spot, I never know where it is after blinking.

Yays:
- The A.I works very well, I can see there is some AGGRO involved.
- Bullets don't simply go straight, there's some realism.
- Hit testing is spot on for walls/structures.
- Various mobs, the game is not limited to zombies.
- I don't regret paying $4 for this.

Basically, this is Bird's Eye Serious Sam, but the weapons will eventually need some major balancing.

Wants:
- Map Maker, especially for a tile-based game like this.
- More items: fences, mines, det-bombs, bla bla.
- Bosses, bosses that don't like it when I spend that past 3 hours camping in my 7x7 structure.
- Leveling and more stats... Make this game better than Diablo 3!

They really sold themselves short calling this game "over 9000" zombies.

Yeah there are over 9000 zombies. But it's like saying over 9000 grains of sand on the beach. We're talking a lot of zombies here. Like hold down the grenade button and lay on that flamethrower and there are still too many zombies to see the ground. We're talking like, if these zombies were spontaneously generating from dirt, there's no way we aren't violating conservation of mass with all these zombies. We're talking more stories than grandpa has about the fourties zombies.

It's fun and simple. Would have liked to have seen more done with the building system, would have liked to see something to help with collection of drops, would have liked to see a higher turret limit than 6 (really, only 6?), but it is what it is and it works.
