It's more entertaining than most AAA FPS games, the arcade shotting style wave after wave is pretty fun, there's plenty of achievments to hunt, lots of weapons to choose, include bows, crossbows and a minigun.

The story is doable, voice acting is not bad, maybe it is bad but it's fun. A simple but quite entertaining title very worth the price on sale or not.

Dead Effect for the PC in all essence was a great port over and an example of smartphone turned PC done right. There is a couple small cons like you can still tell it was a port over and you don't have the ability to jump but otherwise this game is excellent on all accounts from smooth gameplay to a storyline that keeps you involved from start to finish. Nothing is ground breaking in this Zombie FPS but what you have is a decent cheap game that you can pour some replayability into with how they have setup earning better weapons and abilities. Overall, I say give the game a play.
Here is my review of it if you are interested:

Get guns. Shoot zombies. Get instructions from pseudo-Ahnold. Shoot more zombies. Dead Effect is (if you hadn't guessed) a single-player zombie fps set on a space ship with a mad scientist whose experiments have gone wrong. We're clearly in B-movie sci-fi territory here, and don't expect anything else. The dialogue and voice acting play up to it. While Dead Effect doesn't possess the design of Dead Space or the gun-play of Bulletstorm, it's a decent way to pass time if shooting zombies is your thing. List price is $5 and it can discount even lower, making it a low-risk “why not?” buy that delivers more than its price and premise promises.

A pretty fun sci-fi zombie shooter. Don't go in expecting a triple A quality game, but what you will find is an entertaining and nicely polished FPS that should occupy you for a few hours.

The game has several game modes, including a short story campaign, as well as survival missions (survive before the time is up), and biohazard missions (survive all enemy waves). The game is not focused on story, so you'll not find any huge plot twists or character development here, but you will get to shoot a tonne of zombies and explore a dark and atmospheric sci-fi spaceship.

The game has a lot of weapons that you get to unlock as you progress, all of which you can improve with various upgrades (damage, accuracy, etc) by using the money that you find throughout the levels. In addition you also get upgrades to your suit and cool things like bullet time and a powerful energy burst attack that pulverizes any enemy in the vicinity.

Most missions are very much alike, so some people might find it repetitive, and the game is mostly fun in short bursts. But the core mechanics are fun and well executed. I've only found the grenade-throwing zombies to be a huge pain as they often hide somewhere in a zombie mob, and before you know one of them is around, you get whacked with a grenade explosion, which can 1-hit kill you if it blows up very close to you. Apart from those, there are no frustrating aspects.

A fun indie game all in all.

Ever wanted to have a ♥♥♥♥♥ier version of Doom 3, like mobile play store crap tier but for the pc? well now you can. You can even buy gold to get more weapons just like your so loved facebook games!
-Animations suck
-Everything feels modular, like snapmap but like more ♥♥♥♥♥♥
-the gauntlet is absolute crap, it wont ever help you
-the weapons take hours to reload, hours to aim, and they wont do ♥♥♥♥
-shoot at an enemy in the head, it bleeds from the torso
-shoot a pistol to an enemy too far, it doesn't even do damage

I really enjoyed this game. It's far from a great game, but it's very fun and entertaining, so fun that only by the end of the game i realized there is no jumping in the game.

Also you can't understand the plot, because the voices are so low and wrongly timed and you cant pay attention to them. But it's a fun game

It's a ♥♥♥♥ game, but it's a lot closer to being decent than people are giving it credit for. If they fixed a few problems, it would have actually been fun.

The first weapon you get is some sort of electrical gauntlet that recharges in a couple seconds. Because of this weapon, I found myself dragging fights out for as long as possible to make the most use of its free ammo. Not the most compelling gameplay mechanic, even though I know I'm more careful with ammo than I need to be.

Ranged enemies can be extremely annoying, especially bomb throwing enemies wich deal 3-4 times as much damage as any other enemy at the point where they start showing up.

The health system itself is simple bar segments, like hearts in old games. You regain all your health every time you use a health station, and the health station is then disabled. This makes certain areas MUCH more difficult than others based on the availability of health stations. Would have been better off going with standard health pickups.

It's very easy to get pinned in by small enemies, at which point you may as well restart. Your character is really quite fast when sprinting, and you have a sidestep move that is actually very nice. However, none of that helps when the corridors are 5 feet wide and you can't jump. I know it was a mobile game, but being able to jump would have made combat MUCH more enjoyable. As it is, you can be standing somewhere and suddenly realize you can't move because 4 or 5 crawling enemies have surrounded you.

Is this game worth $1? If you consider that money a donation to the team doing development, sure, it's worth it, but the game here is really rather raw. Technically it's a shooter. Technically it works. Everything in here is like "Baby's First FPS" which is to say there's potential, but it's almost entirely unrealized.

I hope someone enjoys this and the team finds some success, but this game, as-is, has little to offer.

They use unity which allows an export to Linux with just one click, guess they are too lazy to do a click with the mouse or they suffer from kink on the hands
