About This Game

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!!!!

This game is pretty basic and boring. Not particularly challenging. Could have been a bit better with some sort of progression system, but even if it had one, I wouldn't recommend it.

Nothing about the game is special. Only fun u can get is kill stuff.

It feels like just flash game quality, those u can just play on your browser.

The game is not hard (for me), as u can see in my game record, I used only 4.3 hours.

Will I replay it?
Nope. At least not in a long long time.

3/10 I will only recommend this game (In sale) to those who really want to spend their extra bucks.

Quick & fun game, has potential for more content but is fun the way it is, especially the last level; that was oddly satisfying to drestroy a Nazi Ufo.

I personally thought the game was pretty good. Maybe it is cause I played a lot of flash games as a kid. That being said, I don't think anyone should be paying 12 bucks for a flash game. I don't think many people share my taste in games. I showed this to my brother and he thought it was the most ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ game he'd ever seen.

The game mechanics are simple. You are in a 2.5 dimension map shooting cows. You get one shoted by the cows so timing is pretty important.

I don't think many people will enjoy this game.

It's a game about quick reaction, perfect execution and good split second decisions.
In the zombie apocalypse, you play a farmer who protects his shed from zombie cows.
It's essentially a wave defense game where you have 1 HP and have to juggle upgrades, cooldowns, ammo etc.
The execution of the game is shabby but not crappy.
Still I'd rather be playing something like OFDP than this.

I got this game in some kind of bundle and well... got trading cards and achievements out of it. The game itself must be one of the worst things I've ever played though.

Wouldn't recommend anyone to pay anything for this.

The Culling Of The Cows is a lane defense game.
The review will be presented in a simplistic "Pros/Neutral/Cons" format.
Pros:
* Given away on some free giveaways, so keep an eye out for that.
* Simplistic graphics, can be run on anything.
* Cow corpses stay there until the end of the mission. (Trust me, it's quite good)
* 4 of the 5 achievements can be obtained in the first 30-45 minutes.
* No need to focus on the game.
* Skills and upgrades.

Neutral:
* Hard to tell the live cows from the dead ones later on... (Technically realism?).

Cons:
* Last achievement can be obtained in the end of the game, probably about 6-8 hours in the game.
* The difficulty curve is just too harsh.
* The hitboxes are a bit screwy, I'd suggest shooting slightly above the cow to hit.

Overall:
5/10 (Barely recommended)
If I had to pay for this, it'd be 3.5/10

Unfunny, needlessly violent, ♥♥♥♥♥♥ hit detection, uninspiring level design with no real sense of progression (Minus the last level.)

It's easily one of the worst Steam game I've played. Selling this game for $14 should be called stealing.
