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!!!!

One of the worst games I've ever played. I can't remember how much money I must have spent on it, but even if you get it for free it's absolutely not worth it.

Controls are rubbish, they cannot be changed.

Item upgrades have no description anywhere, so you just have to guess.

The hit detection is worse than the Holocaust.

You can have power-ups or credits dropped from the sky but, again, nobody tells you that this function exists, or what each one does.

There are cheat codes but they must be entered while you're fighting. You die before you can finish typing.

The content is tiny, very badly done.

The voice acting is one of the worst I've ever seen. And I'm not comparing it to AAA games. No. I mean this is terrible, beyond comparison. If a deaf person heard this game after getting their hearing back, they'd kill the surgeon.

The music lasts 20 seconds and loops infintely, burning your brains out.

There are only 5 achievements and they only require you to press a button. Stupider than Jayden Smith.

It is a very poor copy of Plants vs Zombies, where you have to protect your farm (instead of house) from zombie cows AND normal zombies. But instead of having a strategy you have to remember what 12 different keys do, but also pay attention to how much money you have, otherwise you cannot press them. Plus, some have cooldowns! All of this while you're moving around the map with WASD.

Oh, by the way, you have to reload constantly, but reloading takes LONGER than enemies to kill you. And this is not explained anywhere, either.

It seems it's going to be a joke about rednecks, but it feels like it was made by rednecks instead.

It's not even bloody enough. It feels worse than those flash games from 1997 which took 10 hours to load and then had less features than Pong. Worse than those PowerPoint chain emails they send you, which after 10 minutes of loading and scrolling through endless mail addresses, are not even funny.

At first I thought I should be supportive of an indie game. Maybe they haven't got a clue how to make a game, or they just don't have the team. But I've seen Audiosurf come out of ONE person's work. And it's brilliant. You can't get more indie than Grezzo 2, and it's hilarious. If you want badly-done-on-purpose, there is Goat Simulator. Even Garry's Mod. This is just vomitive. Especially when you consider it's 9 pounds. 9 POUNDS! Which is around 13-15 dollars. For this!!

And no. I don't write reviews lightly. I usually play for at least 20 hours before thinking I can give my opinion (feel free to check my other reviews). But honestly, after 5 minutes, there is nothing else to be seen.

I just spent the following 40 minutes trying to get the last achievement.

I'm really sorry, but for the first time ever, I'm going to award a game a negative score. -1/10 Run. Far.

As others have said, this game feels and plays like a cheap, uninspired flash game. I really don't understand why it has 75% positive reviews; gameplay gets stale by the third level, art is awkward and tacky, main character is the embodiment of stinky Texan redneck stereotypes... I've put 3.3 hours into it, completed 100%, achievements included.

Got it for free and I tell you I'd be angry if I had paid for it. Avoid.

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 :(
