"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."

Reviews

“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”
Rawket Launcher

This game is worth every penny. With silly comedy humor every few moments, it's a small gem worth the price. This game is small, and is worth playing on a rainy day. Especially if you have a lower-end computer.

I really, really liked this game. It sort of reminded me of playing the original Wolfenstein back in the 80's, but not that hard.

For 4.99$ this game completely worth it. I played 7 hours to complete the normal game. If u want a really good challenge you can play hard mode and your game will be longer than 7 hours. Some fight are really hard and others are really easy. Its always full of humor. There is alot of stuff to find and hidden treasures. It will not be easy for most players to reach 100% and find everything because there is alot of maps and alot of stuff to break.

I would give it a 4 out of 5

If u aren't sure about buying it than try out the Demo version :)

Sorry if my english was bad and i hope you will enjoy this game

It's a first try on Super Trench Attack!

The video can be found here:
http://youtu.be/g5IngtPw34M

As far as I've read, this is a one-man development, which is impressive in and of itself, but that is not the only thing this game has to offer.

Starting with the options menu, I'd like to point out that the game has no rebindable keys, but this is not bad in that case since the default layout handles very well. Left-handed people might now feel excluded, but there is no need for alarm, since you can chose a layout especially for left-handed people in mind.
There are no resolution options, but you can choose between commonly used aspect ratios. What is really nice is that the tooltip as well as the icon shows you what kind of display device uses that aspect ratio.
Audiowise you have seperate sliders for sfx and music and you can toggle certain ui elements on or off.

As we go into the game we start of with cutscenes that introduce us into the story and it shows its humor as well. With that said, if you play the game, take your time, watch the scenes and read the dialogue. It is worth a laugh or two.
After showing you movement and shooting and the different UI elements, the game sets you free into the wilds.
Having played until the first boss, I can't think of any line of sight of hitbox issues so far. It only happened one or two times that I had a hard time figuring out whether or not I can walk around freely, because of height differences that weren't completely transparent to me. Other than that I had no troubles at all with the gameplay mechanics of the twitch shooter part or the shooting gallaries, which appear from time to time.

If you want to go off the beaten path, feel free to do just that as the game gives you a lot of options and sometimes rewards you with collectables.
Not only can you engage in combat with the enemy, but you can play around back the camp as well.(But watch out for the casino...you might loose all your gold there)

So far I had a lot of fun, the only complaint I might make is that the game is quite easy, since there are no visible penalties for dying apart from losing a bit of time and having counted one death towards your stats. But since there are leaderboards available there might be some people out there that are competitive enough to try not to die once in a playthrough.

With that said we come to the tl:dr... Is the game worth it?
As I've said in the video, there are way worse investments for 5€ than this game.
The only people I cannot recommend this game to are people that can't tolerate 16/32 bit graphics or the 80s-movie humor that is widespread across the game.
Everyone else though I can recommend this game wholeheartedly.

It's a very fun game and a steal at £3.99. I've been playing the game for quite a while now on Desura and it is very charming. It isn't ground breaking but what it does it does very well and is one of those games that translates very well from screenshots to gameplay so if you like what you see, you will most likely enjoy the game.

Give the demo a go if you don't believe me.

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.

+ 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]
