“I’ve enjoyed my time with Trapped Dead: Lockdown quite a bit. It’s action RPG based gameplay is a lot of fun and it has a co-op multiplayer feature for up to 4 other players allowing you to play with friends. The game is also quite bloody and gorey as well as you’d expect from a zombie game”

About This Game

A small American town is overrun by the living dead! You manage to enter the town just before the military locks it down and now you must slice and shoot your way through thousands of zombies in order complete your mission in this action-packed Hack & Slash RPG.

In Trapped Dead: Lockdown, you fight your way through an interactive horror story as one of five different characters: The marine, the butcher, the assassin, the marshal and the exorcist. Every class comes with their own custom storyline, as well as individual strengths and abilities – the assassin is an expert in firearms, the butcher slaughters his enemies in melee combat and the exorcist fries zombies with his spiritual abilities. Each of the characters features his own individual skill tree, where you can unlock new defensive abilities and attacking moves to aid you in combat.

In Trapped Dead: Lockdown, you’ll have to choose between wielding two weapons at the same time or equipping one powerful two-handed one. The huge number of weapons keeps the gameplay interesting by letting you experiment with new combinations all the time: Would you like to send a concussion shot with the pistol first, then grab your hammer for a double blow, or rely on the mystical powers of the magic cross to set the zombies on fire? Clubs, axes, knives, revolvers, tasers, rifles, shotguns, bows, grenades, spell books, etc. There are hundreds of different weapons with which to kill the living dead - you can even use vehicles to run them over!

While discovering the huge game world, you’ll encounter many different types of rotting enemies and menacing boss monsters whose different strategies and abilities will require you to think fast and hit hard if you want to live. The monsters thirst for blood and move in quickly from all sides, so make sure not to be surrounded! Friendly NPCs may ask you for help or fight alongside you, but in the end, there’s only one rule in this world: kill or be killed! Lucky for you, the multiplayer mode enables you to fight the hordes together with up to 3 friends!

Features:
  • Zombie-Action in a rich horror atmosphere
  • Five different classes with individual storylines
  • Complex Skill tree to level up your abilities and attributes makes for an individual RPG experience
  • Hundreds of weapons and items
  • Diverse enemies and boss monsters
  • Co-op-multiplayer for up to four players
  • Dialogue spoken by professional voice actors and fully subtitled

I recommend it only if you get it on sale, and you like the graphic style, and you have a Xbox 360 controller that works on your PC.

It was satisfying wandering around killing things and exploring, and I liked the game up until the driving levels. There's lots of unfair and unbalanced parts, but they give you a checkpoint right before so it's not that bad.

The keyboard + mouse controls are really bad though, you use the number keys to drink health potions and do 1 of 2 special moves, and your mouse is used to move places and attack. Which made combat really awkward.

I rarely leave a review but felt this game deserving of one. I collect games and usually just take them out for a quick test drive with the intention of getting back to them if one appears to have potential. Of the three games I bought today Trapped Dead: Lockdown was the one I held out the least amount of hope for. Much to my surprise this little game was a blast and I was blown away by it enough to go back in my libraray and break out the original Trapped Dead and start it up to. Trust me this will be $9.99 that is well spent.

Game breaking bugs. Cannot progress. Reached the cemetery and could not find one of the artifacts. Watched a walkthrough online and confirmed it was bugged. Reloading the game does not fix the bug. Game was ok up until this point.

Whilst the original Trapped Dead was a huge disappointment, this (sequel? remake? reimagining?) is made by a different studio. Thoughts of the original game colored my impression of this for quite a while, however about 8 levels in I realised I was really enjoying myself and found it hard to put down. Sure it's got some flaws: the movie compression is ugly, the voice acting is terrible (and I hardly ever think that even when everyone else goes), the storyline is incomplete and meandering and references events and details which were never previously discussed, NPCs are completely unrealistic, but you don't come to this game for the story. The action is fun and that's what counts. Gameplay wise, I don't think I'd play this multiple times to unlock all the achievements with multiple classes, and there's probably too much inventory juggling, but apart from that it's a good blast. Don't expect some wonderful polished experience like Shadowgrounds, this is not that good, but it's not garbage like the first Trapped Dead either. Pick this up on sale and it's a good buy.

*Just to add to it, this is ofcourse my personal view of the game, it's in no way an official statement, nor a fact, your experience with the game can still vary, take that in mind :-)*

I was able to test this game before it even got released and I tested both singleplayer and multiplayer aspects of it. The multiplayer review can be seen on the video and it also covers visual and functional part of the game, it can be found at the bottom of this review :-)

Now, I haven’t played the first Trapped Dead, so I can’t really compare, altough I have looked at the reviews both on Steam and by external sites and authors. It did not received very good scores, mainly due to being buggy beyond an acceptable point, and generaly awful gameplay. I was curious if anything of the above has gotten better with the sequel.

Now I will say this right from the start, it might be better than the first, but it still seriously lacks. The first one was apparently very buggy, and this trend mildly continues, the bugs were random, but there were many. In singleplayer I had some weird issues with my inventory (items that I had before, dissappearing on death and returning to checkpoint), and in multiplayer we experienced horrible missplacement issues, crashing, invisible zombies and as you could have seen in the video, I get stuck in a warehouse unable to progress at one point. This forced us to play this for the second time and switch hosts.

The game did receive a big update after we played it for the multiplayer review and I went in to see if stuff got fixed or what was that update about — I have no clue, since the item problems still happen for me, and I had one game crash happen.

Visually it’s “alright”. There are definitely prettier games, but to what it is (isometric “3D” rpg game) I have to say that it’s absolutely enough and the game doesn’t do bad with this,.

The UI on the other hand is something absolutely horrible and I hate it. It’s clunky, the game doesn’t pause when you go into inventory/etc. And the whole thing is just really hard to figure out and use, since there’s buttons that totally don’t look like buttons (skill points) and the game is using “apply” in several parts of the UI which makes me totally forget to push it every time, since I’d not expect a feature like that.

Speaking of skill points and such, this game is supposed to have RPG features, and I can’t really say I’d be enjoying them. Character progression felt boring, nothing new or innovative, due to the UI complications it’s really hard to give attention to it anyway and the overall game just felt more like an action adventure zombie slasher whith annoying rpg features.

Story by it self is like a B-rated movie and you shouldn’t expect a plot worth your brain cells,. Literally, if you’re going to play this game, just expect nothing, turn your brain off, and go hack&slash some zombies. On the other hand if you do enjoy B-Rated movies, it might appeal to you a lot.

The good part of the story is the voice acting, which is funny and adds a little humour to the game, altough sometimes I feel like the characters are talking for way too long, thankfully you can skip it. Soundtrack on the other hand is absolutely generic, can’t recall any track to be stuck in my head and I believe it’s 85% just ambience noise.

I was starting to be annoyed roughly two hours into the game, level design felt like it’s intentionally slowing me down, bugs, no great story, just killing zombies all the time, with weapons that go down with durability faster than you blink and a skill system so weird that you’ll end up using bare fists just to not have to go into the inventory all the time. I saw about 3-4 boss fights and.. the store page claims “Diverse enemies and boss..”. That is so not true, the 4 bosses I encountered looked almost the same and acted roughly the same. That is just killing the game as well, and only adding to the annoying repetitiveness, not even talking about the repeating quests and game mechanics (“place explosive here”).

I did had some laughs when playing it with my buddy Brandon Dayton, and I think the main selling point of this game is definitely the co-op multiplayer (so the developer better fix the issues lol) and playing this in singleplayer is just plain not worth it.

For me this game has almost no replayability, and I will probably not be coming back to it, only if things get better (fixing the god damn UI & bugs would be enough for me to clench my teeth). It would make a good game for an iPad, as I recall having some similar games installed on it, so I could play it in the subway.

If you’re a fan of the first one (despite all the bad about it) you’ll probably get this regardless of my review, and that’s ok, after all its just my point of view, but I feel like it doesn’t introduce much new to the series (based on my research), apart from not being tactical but a hack&slash. And with this price tag, I just have to say to everyone else.. don’t buy it. Just don’t. Wait for a sale, or a bundle to include it if you want it, because you’ll regret spending 20 bucks.

*According to an official, this game has nothing to do with the first Trapped Dead, only the name...*

Pros
(+) Cool voice acting
(+) Zombies (seriously, this is enough for most people)
(+) Co-op campaign for up to 4 players
(+) Multi-platform (OS equality ftw), also XBOX ONE and PS4

Cons
(-) BUGS, sometimes game-breaking bugs, this really shouldn’t be happening..
(-) B-Movie story with typical zombie clichés
(-) Multiplayer issues, missplacement, latency, etc.
(-) Generic RPG features, that more annoy than excite
(-) Level design is gonna make you go zig-zag all the time, ehh
(-) Whole game feels very REPETITIVE
(-) HORRIBLE UI DESIGN
(-) PRICE

The Game seemed decent at first and I was enjoying it, but I then hit a progression breaking bug and I was unable to get any feedback from the forums. There has not been any recent updates nor has the developer spoke on the forums for months. I would say buyer beware on this one as I am not sure if it will ever be updated again and the forums are pretty dead.

I will say to be fair that up until I hit the bug it was an okay hack and slash ARPG. That said, I don't think even without the bug that it is worth the $20 asking price.

Glitchy, undercooked, overpriced mess.

Pros: nice atmosphere & above average voice acting. Decent Art direction.

Cons: Lame AI Pathfinding. Weak unresponsive controls. NPCs will regularly glitch out, stand totally still & make quests impossible to finish. Exiting & restarting the game doesn't always fix that problem. Bad level design. The Mini map is worthless. You'll wander around lost while an Infection clock ticks down. The Escort missions are a nightmare.

All in all, I love Diablo & I'm not yet sick of Zombies. However, shoddy game design prevents this game from reaching its potential.

TD:L is a very fun arpg/hack'n slash. If you like diablo, torchlight, van helsing, etc... you should like this game, as the actual gameplay is similar to those games. The story revolves around zombies! Tons of loot, can equip different armors and weapons which changes your appearance, level progression is more old school, (you not only have a skill tree but also level up stats), multiple characters to play as, multiple difficulties, and, although nothing mind blowing, a cool story.

I applaud the devs for including gamepad support in an iso arpg, which used to be rare for these games to have on pc, so thank you for helping make a m/k arpg a thing of the past.

I also really dig the voice acting, it is very good for a budget title. The graphics are what I expected from a game I paid less than $20 for.

If you like iso arpgs you cannot go wrong with Trapped Dead: Lockdown. I highly recommend people that like the genre to buy this game...NOW! Its a steal at its current price. Just don't go in thinking a budget title is going to be diablo 4.

The Multiplayer didn't work correctly, don't waste your money with this game like me and my friend, we can't play multiplayer because the game has a big sync problem with host and client, and no one can solve this problem since 4 weeks that we reported...

Blood curdling fear dripping work of rotting terror. A DIABLO, VAN HELSING style hack and slash action rpg in a modern setting with grim ambience of BLOOD and the first POSTAL where death is everywhere.

You can choose between several characters who each are really well voice acted. You will be able to level up attributes and skills personalizing your character by putting level up points in these areas. Characters are varied with some being able to use guns while others like the Priest relying on melee and spiritual powers to destroy flesh feasting fiends unleashed upon the world.

Music sets the tone perfectly with its dark all enveloping quality as if the world had been transformed into a unending morgue of sorrow and sanity destroying horror.

Graphics are gorey and surreal in their unescapable nightmare visuals. Environments look very nice with a comfortable amount of interaction. Your characters are displayed well though you cant zoom in and out. There is a great rag doll inventory system where you can equip weapons and armor which will change the physical appearance of your character ingame.

Gameplay has just the right amount of balanced movement and weapons fire where actions take the proper amount of time to do without being too fast or too slow unlike the first game in the series where the combat and movement felt very frustrating and clumsy. Your character can heal up by consuming food and things like holy water. There are also edible items which will give you temporary boost benefits to your skills.

TRAPPED DEAD: LOCKDOWN buy it! Play it! Save your eternal soul before its toooo lateeeee!
