"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”

A Review of Super Trench Attack! [Actual short review]

STA was a pretty fun short indie game about war except the developer made everything goofy. Its actually pretty fun and the graphics are also quite good along with a funny little story to keep it interesting. They also mixed up the gameplay by adding in another mode to this otherwised short campaign so it doesn't really feel that boring. Its a blend of shooting and lite rpg.

Anyways now that we got that covered, the gameplay is essentially you are a single brave soldier of Greenstar Army out to stop the Blackstar army. To accomplish this in your isometric view of the map you shoot the enemy, throw grenades at them and completing objective given to you by HQ. You can then use the money you acquired to buy meds, new weapons, accessories and armor.

While out on the field you can search for hidden stuff and location but for most part the money you get from the normal playthrough is enough to pay for weapon upgrades provided you dont get every single one each time. Helping you bust the enemies are also the random scattering of allies all over the map and your one dedicated Buddy.

Pretty much thats it for the gameplay, the graphics are pretty good looking in emulating the retro style without resorting to the low effort 8bit and 16bit style that often saturate the market these days. Sound design is also pretty good.

Option menu is pretty lacking though, You only got options for resoltuion and aspect ratio plus some others and thats it. Controls are a bit strange at first since the character slides around a little bit but I got used to it pretty easily.

All in all I would recommend this game, its goofy, its short, and its pretty fun. It helps that its pretty cheap as well.

This was a rather good little use of a Saturday afternoon. The closest genre would be one of those old nintendo/sega RPGs like Legend of Zelda with shooting. You have your weapons you upgrade as you progress, items that'll give you bonuses, and you'll level up your health/weapon damage/etc.

The gameplay doesn't get stale thanks to the 6-7 hour length. The World War I setting / humor is what really separates this from other similar games. I don't think this would've been as enjoyable if it was set elsewhere but I loved it regardless. It's pretty easy to 100% the achievements as well.

My only gripe is that I wish it went further in terms of scope / variety and I was hoping the sequel that came out recently stayed in this style, but that's turn-based.

In the end the price of $5 is fully justified and I'm really glad I played this.

This game is just AWESOME.

-You'll never get sick of the simple combat system.
-You get gold to upgrade your gear, buy some ammo, or just lose it all playing black jack (all the games that involve any kind of currency should have black jack).
-You can even loot stuff to decorate your tent.
-The main feature: This game is so funny that i used to walk inside the gun "store" repeatedly just to talk to a crazy guy.

I recommend it for everyone. It's just a little short, but it's cheap and the second game was already greenlit.

"Super Trench Attack" is one game that looks way better on paper than it is in reality.

Looking at the screenshots, descriptions and the positive reviews, one would get the idea this was a short but sweet, goofy, quirky isometric RPG shooter with humor. Yeah, well, the truth is a bit different...

The stills can't reveal the stiff and ugly animations. They can't reveal the annoyingly clunky movement. They don't reveal the utterly inane shooting mechanics. And the humor... don't even get me started! The game is chock-full of "jokes" - only to call them jokes is an insult to comedy. You can't call the game's "humor" as good or bad, because that isn't really humor. The "jokes" are statements, plain and simple, which aren't witty, or funny.


Your Commander: We have to kill the enemy Admiral.
You: (I hope she isn't looking at me!)


Weapons Shop Guy: These guns are all great.
You: (Yeah, you wish...)

And so on, and so on, and so on... those old generic jokes our grandfathers used to tell are funnier than this atrocity with which you'll be constantly bombarded throughout the game. As if that weren't enough, the game is riddled with grammatical errors. There's at least 1 or 2 punctuation marks missing in every text balloon. Perhaps someone will not mind this at all, but the fact that the game was released in such a state really shows the developers are either fairly illiterate, or that they simply don't care. Or both.

"STA!" isn't expensive, but I'd never pay full price for it. Even at a huge 80% discount, I still don't think it was worth the money... So, no, I can't recommend it at all. Perhaps, if someday it's featured in the $1 tier of Humble Bundle, then yeah, otherwise skip it.
