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!!!!

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 :(

"Mad Zombi Cow Hunter"

The Culling Of The Cows is a 2D Sidescroll Shooter in the weird world of zombi farming. You are a farmer with a shotgun in your hand and must protect your barn from incoming waves of zombi cows. In each wave another type of obscure zombi creature joins the hordes. There are a bunch of cliches dealing of a typical redneck life and leading towards the grand finale: Fight against a Nazi UFO.

The gameplay is quite challing, yes, but it turns out in higher levels even more repetitive and boring. Although there is a mass of funny elements to discover, nothing remains as necessary remindable. Like a chopper support, nukes or a barn sentry. Wow how interesting.
The biggest lack are the uncomfortable controls like reloading each shell for one key hit or to aim precisely in the isometric playfield. Also some bugs are still included in this game.

So I can just recommend it to players of brute and unstrategical shooters.

The Culling Of The Cows

Pros :
  • Nice graphics.
  • Some fun humor.
  • A reasonable variety of enemies.

Cons :
  • Very, very repetitive.
  • You will be frustated a times,because you die if an enemy hits you (you have only 1 chance and if you die you will repeate the level from the begging).
  • Levels are too long.
  • Some hitboxes are glitched.
  • Only 3 gamemodes.

I like the artstyle a lot, seems to be handdrawn which is cool.
The game itself is really fun, although I'm having a problem getting some of the level achievements, 2nd map I missed no shots but still got a failure on that one but no biggie.
The music really fits the atmosphere of hellish cows trying to take over your barn, made my head nod.
Else I didn't have any problems gameplay wise, you'd think it would be hard to line up the shots but it's actually pretty precise, you can even shoot behind you in case you missed a cow.
This game isn't easy but it's challenging enough to not be unfair, plus you get sentries and all that good stuff.
Definitely going to play this in the future, it's a nice little casual game, too good to just be on a website so I understand it's offered as a full game.

Not bad!
