“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.

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.

+ Solid action
+ Funny
+ Loot and junk
+ Short 'pick up and play' missions

- Horrible graphics
- (Shooting) enemies are hard to spot sometimes because they're off-screen
- Stats system feels unnecessary and, dare I say, useless

[Rating: 62/100]

Pros:

-The humor is more or less decent, and there were points that actually did make me chuckle.

-The music is pretty good.

-There's a surprising amount of detail. There are many secrets and collectibles to find, and there are numerous hidden setpieces that add flavor to the game world.

-In contrast to most shooters these days, the AI partner is actually pretty good. The one drawback is that he has paperdoll endurance most of the time.

-Knife wielding monkeys. What more needs to be said?

-The final boss is surprisingly challenging and satisfying.

Cons:

-Kinda short, but for a five dollar game, its a decent length.

-The aiming can be a bit dodgy at times.

-The fact that you have an infinite amount of explosives KINDA ends up trivializing most boss fights.

-In contrast to the satisfying final boss, the final area is a bit of a slog with dense clusters of enemies that can easily mow you down if you're not constantly on the move and spanning explosives.

-The ammo system leaves a lot to be desired. Ammo drops from enemies and containers are extremely rare, and the shop only cares two ammo pickups at a time, and sometimes they're only for one weapon. And based on what I saw, the store only restocks once you've completed a mission.

Overall: 7/10. Not the best war game I've played or the best comedy game I've played, but certainly worth the money and a decent timesink.

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.

This amusing move-and-shoot game is worth the low price, especially if you like some slightly odd humor.

my likes
When using the keyboard and mouse, movement is via the keyboard, and the mouse is used to aim a handgun or rifle at a few specific places on the enemies. (You can easily be moving in one direction, and shoot in another direction on the screen. Click on what you want to shoot, and as long as you had a straight line-of-sight, you would hit it.) This type of aiming seems rare in games, but has a natural feel. (The game also supports a controller, but I have not tried that.) Unlimited grenades can also help at times (but be careful about blowing yourself up; I've jumped on my own grenade accidentally a few times). Early on, you also gain an ally which follows you around to help shoot the enemy. Both you and your ally level up, and you can improve some of your own stats at each level up. Your camp, the safe zone, allows you to buy upgrades such as weapons and armor. Multiple "secret" tunnel entrances allow you to jump to parts of the levels you're already reached in the current or previous play session. I like that there is no real penalty for death (and there are even a few cutscenes you won't see otherwise), except starting from base camp. (But with the previously mentioned tunnels, it usually does not take long to return to your previous location.)

others' potential dislike
The graphics are a low-resolution. If you need good graphics, look elsewhere. The screenshots with the smaller people are the playing graphics. (The large people are cutscenes.)

my dislikes
A few things such as game mechanics could use a little more explanation. There are only a few pre-defined key layouts. (However, the default should work for most people: most of the game is just moving WASD, shooting with mouse 1, reloading with mouse 2, and grenade throwing with mouse 3.)

disclaimer
I purchased this game normally, but also later received a free copy of this game for helping a bit with a test release. The game author did not ask me explicitly or implicitly for a review. The game author also did not threaten to reveal my heart-covered boxer shorts if I gave a bad review.

Oh boy.. this game brings memories back to the 16 bit era. They did a great job replicating that feel. It's a simple game, but a lot of fun and is full of goofy humor. Well worth the money
