"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”

This is a real eye-opener game. Unique design concept deep heart and it made ​​a very good detail. Plot is entirely inferior to Hollywood blockbusters. Role model is very fine, making good interface. So what? You worth trying to play!

軍隊的勢力三分靠裝備三分靠時運.
剩下的四分是什麼?那麼大比例的因素
沒錯那就是軍營里的支援女兵.
她們不僅要後勤工作 還要照顧士兵們的生活起居.
安撫他們的心情.畢竟士兵都是背井離鄉來打仗.哪天死去根本不是稀奇事
所以! 軍營女兵不美麗?誰還有打仗的動力?戰爭還有意義?
這個遊戲很好的詮釋了女兵對一個軍隊的重要.
美麗的女兵..你祗有下載遊戲.加入戰爭.你才能感受得到.
你還等什麼?趕緊購買以及下載這款遊戲吧~

Super Trench Attack is an isometric action rpg where you are a soldier carrying out missions in WWI. You run around shooting enemies, throwing molotovs, taking tanks head on, and doing more soldiery things. There are also a few boss fights where you have to quickly shoot enemies appearing at random locations on the screen (a la wild gunman).

The oddness of Super Trench Attack is that at first sight it looks horribly drawn and simplistic, yet it manages to draw you in pretty fast with its odd humor. Your hero gets in several weird situations in the cutscenes where he ends up wearing his heart covered boxers, eating strawberry icecream, or discover his allied infiltrator in hilarious disguises. After the first few minutes I even grew to like how the game looked, as it works well to its advantage in conveying comedy. Taking in mind that for its duration it is priced fairly, Super Trench Attack is very well recommended.

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.

Downloaded and finished the game in one session. I played in on "hard" mode (besides normal) and finished the game 100% in about 6 hours (it took me around 30 minutes to get all collectibles I didn't find on the normal play through, and the last boss fight took me around 45 minutes, but only because there is some backtracking involved and after 5 hours of clicking, my hand got tired °_°).

The gameplay itself is fun and the shooting mechanics are rewardings enough to enjoy. The game doesn't take itself too serious and is always trying to make you crack a smile.

I bought it for 2,49€ and it's worth it to kill an afternoon or a some hours on a rainy day. Not sure if I'd buy it for 4,99€ though; as I said, I played it on the highest diffuculty level and got 100% in 6 hours, and there is really no replay value at all.

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.

This game was so worth the five bucks. Its fun, its funny, and the man who sells the firearms and ammunition will call you Mary and ask for a kiss. This is an epic game and I totally recommend it.

Cheesy Humour, Over the top madness, and a bit badly drawn.

That's a winner in my book if I ever saw one.

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.

----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!!!!

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 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

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.
