Über dieses Spiel

The Culling Of The Cows is a side-scrolling shooter / tower defence game. You will take the role of Sammy, a soliloquizing schizophrenic farmer with a self prophesied mission to lay waste to the disease spreading over his farm.

With his dusty old 12 gauge at his side and god at his back, Sammy isn’t going to be taking too kindly to the infectious chaos of the big city’s leaking its way out into wild country. When all the lunacy started Sammy consulted God on what he should do, and the response was. KILL THEM! KILL THEM ALL!!!!

Ich will es kurz halten, mit einer durchdachten Reihenfolge, da es hierbei nicht viel zu erzählen gibt:
- Ein Defense Spiel, Level für Level, haltet die heranstürmende Horde mit eurer Shotgun auf!
- Nur 5 Errungenschaften, bei der letzten muss der Endboss besiegt werden!
- Der Endboss befindet sich ganz rechts auf der Karte, es ist nicht nötig alle Level durchzuspielen.
- Der Schwierigkeitsgrad steigt, ohne das Frust aufkommt oder Spielspaß verloren geht.
- Es ist möglich mit einer Spielzeit von ca. 1 Stunde ALLE Errungenschaften zu erreichen!
(- Realistisch sind bis zu 2h: paar Level mehr gespielt als nötig, die Level nicht immer beim ersten Anlauf geschaft und der ein oder andere Anlauf mehr beim Endboss!)

---> Wer gerne Errungenschaften sammelt wird hier auf seine Kosten kommen!

---> Der Preis von 11€ ist eindeutig überzogen! Beobachtetet lieber Steam Bundle Aktionen.

- kostenlos bekommen -

Als Spiel für zwischendurch wunderbar. Immer wieder neue Gegner Arten, wodurch dann die Abwechslung entsteht. Für paar Stunden aufjedenfall nice. Die Errungenschaften hat man größtenteils schnell zusammen. Es gibt Bossgegner.

Nur ist das komplette Game in wenigen Stunden durchgespielt. Was nicht weiter schlimm ist, da es genug Level und Levelarten gibt.

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

Spiel:

Ein klassisches Tower Defense spiel wie Plants vs Zombies, nur das hier meistens nur Kühe erschossen werden.

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

Einzelspieler:

Man ballert als alter Farmer mutierte Kühe von der Farm die gerne in die Scheune würden. Man muss immer eine Anzahl an Wellen überstehen um in das nächste Level zu kommen.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Grafik:

Die Grafik ist ok, nicht weltbewegend aber reicht vollkommen aus.

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

Musik:

Die Musik ist gut und passend zum Spiel, aber dennoch nicht hitverdächtig.

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

Steuerung:

Funktioniert sehr gut mit XBOX360 Pad.

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

Pro/Contra:

- wie Plants vs. Zombie nur mit Kühen
- wird schnell eintönig

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

Fazit:

Ich bin keine Fan von Tower Defense spielen, daher fand ichs auch recht schnell sehr langweilig. Für Leute die aber PvsZ gut finden denke ich ist das mal was anderes, aber für den Preis dennoch nicht zu empfehlen.

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

Zusammengefasst:

Einzelspieler: 4/10
Grafik: 5/10
Musik: 4/10
Steuerung: 7/10

Der Preis ist mit 11€ zu hoch für ein "stupides" Spiel wie dieses.
Es ist nicht schlecht, aber mehr was für 2-3 Mittagspausen und dann hat man eigentlich genug.

Doch Errungenschaften (Fünf sind es) sind hier nach spätestens einer Stunde zu holen.
Dazu gibt es noch Sammelkarten, auch kleine Aufwertung.

Für den Preis viel zu teuer, selbst bei 2,99€ wäre der Preis zu hoch.
Im Bundle oder als Giveaway aber voll okay.

The Culling Of The Cows is a 2D Shooter with a Side Scrolling Combat, As an old farmer, you must protect your barn from Zombie Cows and whatever that tries to pass through you. as your partner you've got a badass gun that you can upgrade the power over time, some awesome special supports also a Supply pack to give you a hand to defeat those Zombies Cows and a badass Nazi Ufo.

Pros:

+Very Fun and addictive game
+Nice visual graphic
+Simple Controls
+Nice Combat System
+Challenging Game
+Enjoyable

Cons:

- HitBox is kinda messed up I'd say
- The game is kinda short
- only few achievements, (Would be fantastic if this game had some more achievements, just to increase the challenge)
- No Co-op (A Multi-Player mode would make it really Fun to play with friends )
- High Price (I'd recommend buy this game with +85% OFF)

I had this game for free and i really appreciate it and i would recommend buy this one in a steam sale when you can get a +85% OFF it would be a fair enough price !!!
I wouldn't recommend for my indian friends, that could be offensive or something :(

Is it worth 11€? No. Why? Let's look at pros and cons
Pros:
  • Trading cards I guess
Cons:
  • Terrible hitbox for enemies and also player character
  • Annoying and bad voicing
  • Boring
  • Bad music

Don't waste your money and time on this game! There are better flash games on internet which are free.

It's basically a flash game with slightly upgraded graphics. Very simple gameplay, pretty bad story. This game isn't worth $5, let alone $13.

I got it free, still not worth playing :(

Funny humor. Slide scroller combat. Make sure you get it on sale, cause the price isn't quite justified. Though I do love the developer, it's just not their best product.

This was zombie cow massacre.
You play as an old man who has a farm.
Your farm is being invaded by zombie disease/virus so you have to protect your farm with your trusty rifle.
You're not alone in this game, you got a protection from "above".

Even though this game is repetitive, it's still fun for me to play it casually.

The Culling of the Cows is an absurdist gag game that, while it may provide you with all the rampant bovine slaughter you could ever dream of, is as of now not at all worth the price paid for it.

As a lone farmer stranded in rural 'Murica, you must overcome the armies of mutant cows, deranged hippies and obese gothic women that a Nazi UFO sends your way. By reading the previous sentence, it should be quite clear that this game is not taking itself too seriously. However, there is a clear difference between random humor with a purpose and random just for random's sake; this game strictly falls into the latter. Culling is basing its appeal entirely on the fact that the player gets to shoot cows...a lot. All of the other plot points mentioned in the beginning of this paragraph receive no explanation besides a single introduction screen per plot point, and are otherwise meant to serve as comedic masks for generic enemy types.

The game's fundamentals are disappointingly lacking. Gameplay is divided into levels that contain encounters in either standard "Waves" format, a variation of Waves that is only one large wave, or a last-stand turret mode called "Onslaught". The majority of the game's levels occur in the Waves format, with varying numbers and types of enemies and waves for each level. This variety does little to put off the repetition that sets in after a few rounds of slaughtering the same few animals and zombies over and over. The Waves format does allow for some character customization in weapon upgrades, but after a certain amount of experimentation I discovered an order of upgrades that, with moderate skill, could win all the levels. Some incentive in the level design to switch up gameplay styles would have gone a long way. The other gameplay mode, Onslaught, produces some of the most frustrating levels in the game due to sketchy hit detection, though it often provides a refreshing and enjoyable break from the Waves levels as well.

Various other parts of the game fail to stand out. The soundtrack isn't memorable and the art style has this feel to it that so many indie games seem to have, which at worst could be descibed as "one step above MS Paint". Largely, the game isn't bad-looking; it just has a habit of piling hundreds of multicolored cow corpses on the screen at once, which grates on the senses and leaves a lasting impact after seeing it over and over. Some parts of the game seem to be implemented strangely: controller support, despite being labelled as both "partial" and "full", relegates movement solely to the D-Pad, which is an odd choice. Culling's achievements are also strange: there are only five, four can be attained by the third level (two are bugged to only work with the keyboard) and the fifth is for beating the game. More achievements could help boost replayability, a facet which is important in this game considering it can be finished in just over three hours. Though most levels contain medals to earn for winning under certain conditions, the game doesn't offer rewards for earning the medals, which makes them largely meaningless. Perhaps tying some customization unlocks to medals would solve this issue?

Though this game faces significant issues, I must give praise to the spirit of the developers. They've implemented some features like an internal cheat console, the achievements and trading cards by popular demand. Additionally, their desire to not make this game be simply a joke shows throughout the game. The farmer's voiceover has some genuinely unique and funny lines interspersed throughout the game, which work because the lines are not beaten to death in every level. As long as the developers stand by the good-hearted cow hate that is the root of this game, there's hope that this could turn into an indie cult classic in the future.

This game has set off on a mission: to spread the need to shoot cows whenever, wherever. It tries to achieve its goals through a game that has significant flaws. Should the developers focus on the problems that plague the core elements of the game, then this title will definitely deserve a second look. As of now, however, there is no way anyone would feel satisfied paying full price for this game. Save up for a sale, perhaps gift this to a friend in jest. Just...beware the cows. The Culling of the Cows gets a D.

Fun game in short doses at least in the early going. I see the potential for it to get tedious as the levels progress but at a sale price it's worth a try if you like shooter/TD hybirds.
