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!!!!

Do you feel like there aren't enough games out there about shooting cows?
If you answered "F$%& YEAH!!! COWS HAVE HAD IT FAR TOO GOOD FOR FAR TOO LONG!!!"
Then this game, my friend, is definitely for you.

Simply put, this game is a silly time waster. If you are reading this review...BUY THE GAME.
You will get 3 hours of silly gaming and a shiny "Perfect Game."
This game only has 5 achievements as of Sept. 24, 2014 and you can get them all in under 3 hours.
Time waster. Silly fun. Easy achievements. Easy Perfect Game. Easy easy easy.
Plus, you get to shoot cows.

Cows are coming - shoot them. Okay, sounds fun.
Reality: cows are coming, but the player is more preoccupied with the clumsy controls than the shooting itself. And it doesn't matter as it's boring anyway. 10 minutes was more than enough for me.

I expected light entertainment - but not as light as the cheapest flash games (which is, by the way, an offence against flash games).

As such, this game would be expensive even if it was free.

Clumsy controls, annoying voice acting, boring, way too expensive. There are way better games to find out there...

Very enjoyable little defence game.

You play as the stereotypical hillbilly southern redneck wielding a pump action shotgun shooting down zombie(cow)s to protect your barn.

The game offers various upgrades of your shotgun and relies heavy on luck of a cooldown based drop.

I enjoyed the music a lot, also the original artstyle and funny voice acting, too bad it is somewhat short.

Aside from a ♥♥♥♥tingly hard final boss fight which goes on for many, many stages with nary a save or checkpoint, this is one of the flat-out dumbest, funnest games I've ever played. You don't even need to like 2D shooters to dig it (Lord knows I generally don't)! Alex Jones was right, indeed. Best wait for a sale, though, as it's a tad steep at thirteen buckeroonies...

Verdict: 9/10.

Not worth the price.
Somewhat fun, but not worth a penny above $5 in my opinion. The game itself is only 80MB big. Speech in the game is sub-par at best. Gets annoying even after 10 minutes of it. Wait for a big sale if you absolutely MUST get this game.

It seems like despite the indie retro-craze that's been going strong for the past few years, many of them, while awesome, fail to capture that old school 90s insanity that I find myself aching for when playing a classic on an emulator just doesn't hit the spot. This baby doesn't disappoint - especially if you can grab it during a Steam Sale like I just did. The atmosphere, humor, sound and feel of the action all come together to form a pretty hilarious and addictive package of nonsensical carnage. If you dug games like Zombies Ate my Neighbors and Smash TV, pick this one up. It doesn't have the exploration they did, but the feel is right at home.

Its a good game that is kinda cheap feeling and repetitive but fun nonetheless. Play it drunk or high and you'll love it.

This feels like an SNES or Genesis game - looks like it, too. Not much for story, the gameplay isn't very deep. It's a good way to waste a little time, though.

Game is hilarious. Zombie cows, UFOs, and a crusty old farmer.

It's in this month's Indie Gala bundle.

Another game from Decaying Logic!
I like very much the art from this company, that´s why I chose to buy this game in the first place,
also looked so funny, and indeed it is.
At the beginning is "quite" easy, but it get´s harder sooner rather than later.
Many stuff to help you kill those d*** zombies, like different bullets, and customizations for the weapon.
One of the cool things this game has, its that the guy can shoot backwards in a cool pose haha.

Played already quite many hours, I struggled with many of the stages, and I also wanted to try different ways of completing certain ones that were quite crazy, sooooo many cows! :)

A fun side scrolling shooter that gets very intense. It kept me wanting to try just one more time to clear the level. very addictive.

This would be an amusing game, but it suffers from two problems. 1) The controls feel clumsy. Every time you fire a round you have to hit R to reload. 2) Objects all appear flat but the game is essentially 2.5D. This makes it difficult to figure out if you're shooting at something or shooting past it. These things are not game challenges as much as annoyances, so I'm afraid I have to give this one the thumbs down.
