"Fun little game, stylized with the first world war in mind. 5$ could be spent on worse things, like cheeseburgers. Actually those two might compliment."

“Super Trench Attack shows a surprising bravura within the style of game it aims to be. I meant to play for about half-an-hour, but the time flew by, and I didn't check the clock until two hours later.”
Indie Statik

“Footshoots, headshots and dirty mags - everything a growing boy needs.”
4/5 – Pixel Judge

“Entertainment value of a video game is a thing, and immersion is another. I wasn’t expecting to have both in Super Trench Attack(STA) to be honest”

Super Trench Attack! is an isometric twin stick shooter set in a fictional war of roughly WWI-level technology/tactics. In it, the player goes through a series of maps and dungeons, completing objectives set by his commanding officers in order to win the war.

Gameplay is the most important factor in whether a game is enjoyable or not, and thankfully this is the area where Super Trench Attack most shines. I played it, at times, with both controller and KBAM and it played well in both ways - there's a minor quibble where aiming stops when the cursor goes over your map or inventory, but for the most part it wasn't an issue.

There's RPG factors in terms of equipment, health, and damage. It's mostly bug-free from what I could tell, but I ran into a couple cases where my character was dead but wouldn't actually "die" so I had to reload the game and lose progress, or where the game would cease to allow me to fire and only use the knife despite still having ammunition, which was also solved by quitting and restarting.

It's relatively short, taking about 5 hours to 100%. Some boss battles are shooting-gallery style, which is a jarring transition and is the one area where I can say twin-stick (as opposed to KBAM) is simply not sufficient to control - I would have preferred these segments were not included. It's mildly amusing, but not hilarious. The artwork is....unique, and fits the aesthetic, but, well, you can see the screenshots.

I had fun, I'd say it's worth the $5 asking price, but not any more. There's worse ways to spend some cash.

Fun shooter gameplay with mild rpg features and some good laughs. That's basically it. The game seems small but it actually provides decent amount of gameplay hours and hunting for achievements and secrets is not dull or too hard to bother with.

It sure might not look like it but the game just might really surprise you. + There's a little blackjack minigame included in the game.

----IMPORTANT NOTICE----
In my opinion, before you buy this game for £3.99, I would recommend getting the demo for a little trial.
I love this game, its great. For £3.99, this game takes up next to know space, (around 200mb) but it is still a great game to play. Do you like cartoon World War 1 games? Then this is the game for you. When you start you will have to create a character, and from there on, you can enjoy the cartoon shooter. My one negative is that I think this game could be a bit cheaper but thats it. Over all, AMAZING GAME!!!!

Five/six hour-ish game for five dollars. Has some humor to it; it's always trying to make you grin or smile. Nothing to crack up about, but still definitely a funny game; not a cringey game. To the point: It's very fun, and sometimes can be a bit frustrating though. To sum things up without spoiling, you're a man who enlists into WW1. You're just going to be some average soldier, nothing elite. But as soon as you're assigned your first mission, you begin getting sent on commando-esque operations as though you signed up for special forces. It's a very neat game with some boss battles that might make you slap your computer here and there. Also, as I said at the beginning, it's around 5-6 hours. Very short game, but very good game as well. Overall, it's an outstanding game and definitely worth just five dollars. I approve!

I got it as a Christmas gift and didn't know what to think about it at first. But once I actually started playing it, I was sucked in right away. It quickly became the game that I play on my notebook between uni stuff. The thing I really like about it is that it has short but fun missions, full of silly jokes and sometimes even shooting gallery boss battles. I don't know how long the game is (haven't finished it yet) or if it looses the enjoyment after playing it for a longer time, but it's great for playing in short bursts like I do

A fun little game with a sense of humor and fun gameplay. it reminds me alot of games like commando on NES but there is a whole map you can explore, which is well worth the time and effort to do. You can buy new weapons and even find treasures and furniture to decorate your tent back at base. Definitelly worth the 5 dollars, I recommend checking it out.

I liked it for: humor, gameplay, retro style and tones of hidden objects.
Didnt liked it for: music and only 2 types of guns
Passed it 100% in 8 hours, so it was worth discounted price (1,69€)
7/10 if you care about numeric grade.

Super Trench Attack is a comedy/shooter based in a World War setting. Use your brain and your trigger finger to perform headshots and footshots to kill your enemies, it's a pretty funny game, totally worth your time and money.

It's a fun game with hit and miss humor. I am not one personally for fart jokes but sometimes they work, I particularly like the "Victory" screens. The gameplay is nothing more than you see in the trailer.
I find the main character insuferable at times with his boring snide remarks but he does look pretty cool. I find the art style very fitting for the experiance but wish money was easy to come by, having enemies respwan could fix that though.

Brilliant game!
It feels like Chaos General and Metal Slug mixed together with tons of good humor.
You must have it in your collection.
