Campaign mode for ZKW?



Here's a picture of a doge.
Now that I have your attention, let me ask you something.
ZKW, and campaign mode.
Yay, or nay?

Let me explain a bit further.
I'm sure all of you already know, that after the first few hundred rounds, ZKW tends to get boring. I've tried to come up with multiple ideas that would make the game more interesting, even on the later rounds, but nothing seems to be working for long.

So, this one particular idea has been in my head for a few years already, but I never haven't had enough time, or interest to make it happen.
So, this campaign mode. The gameplay wouldn't be changed too much. You could still play as long as you wanted, BUT with a little twist. Once you've gotten to round X, a door would open. Or any other kind of transition thing (train, car, plane.. Hole?) in which you could enter, and you would then go to another area of the map. So, let's say you're in Abandoned Hospital. The door opens, and you go in there. Boom, you're now in another section, as big as the first one, of the hospital.

Each level would have 3-5 sections in total, and once you've finished them all, you win. Yes, sounds weird? Winning in ZKW? Well, yes. You would win, survive another day. But you could still just stay, in any of these sections, and make your last stand, just like now.

So, any ideas? What does this make you feel?

1.3.1 Update, with OverKill, new zombie, and more!



Finally! What's new?
Well.. Here we go:

OverKill

-Probably the biggest update in a loong time! OverKill system is something that lets the most hardcore players continue their joyrney with even more awesome, and new stuff even after hours of playing! With OverKill, everything you do, is OverKill!
Let me explain briefly.
Once player levels up to LVL41, she/he will be given a option, to reset their leveling progress for an exhange of OverKill perk. There are a few OK perks in this update, but more will come some time in the future! One of these perks, is this little thing, that allows you to choose two perks, instead of one!
PS. If you're level 80 or over, don't worry! OverKill resetting will only take away 40 levels from your progress! Which means, that if you're a LVL80 (for example) you can select TWO OverKill perks in total!

New zombie!

-This one is a high roller. If you see one of these. Run. You may have a chance of getting away.

New clothing!

-A weird scientist and his sidekick are here to kick some zombie butt!

Bugs fixed!
-Mister "Nope, not coming" -Tank has changed his mood, and will make an appearance from now on when he's supposed to!
-Other silly bugs fixed
-Some silly bugs added? Who knows?

So, what took you so long, eh?
-Well, that is a good question. I don't really know the answer even myself.. I've really lost the motivation for making games a few months back, and I'm still trying to get it back. It's really frustrating, as I would have tons and tons of cool ideas for ZKW, and for other games, but I just don't have the motivation to do anything about it.. Really sucks. But don't worry. I'm not ditching ZKW. Nope. I'm just making progress slowly. I hope you understand this, and just give me some time.


Ok, that's that! Go slay some zombieeeess!

About This Game

Zombie Kill of the Week - Reborn is a challenging, fast paced, 2D survival shooter! And when we say fast, we mean breakneck, flat-out, adrenaline fuelled fast! What’s different from the other shooters is your goal isn’t to run through levels and finish the game, but to survive for as long as possible under increasingly frantic conditions (we say as long as possible because ultimately you will die!).



Seems simple enough, but where Zombie Kill of the Week - Reborn really takes off is in the added layers of depth and huge variety of features and customisation available. Players earn money for slaughtering the zombies (money might not bring you happiness, but it does buy you guns!). We live in a consumer society after all, which is useful, as you can spend big on over 25 different weapons (including chainsaw, katana, mini-gun, RPG, D.O.M. and many others!). You also need cash to open doors, activate jumps, buy new weapons, or hunt for the magic fridge and see what loot drops are inside! In short… the longer you survive, the more weapons and prizes you get.

Surviving longer also gains you ZKW-Points which you can cash in to totally customize your character, customize your weapons, buy new weapons, buy different perks, open new maps, and a lot lot more! Players also earn XP as they play, allowing them to level-up their character and develop them to fit their chosen gameplay skills. Survival is all about the margins, and every little extra helps!



The Steam release also features an exclusive level editor for the Zombie Kill of the Week - Reborn community, which allows the community to create their own custom and bespoke maps, then share them with friends (and enemies) for everyone to enjoy. Endless permutations and maps means endless challenges.

With a compelling single player survival mode, as well as cooperative multiplayer for up-to four players, this is one zombie firefight you are not going to want to miss! If that wasn't enough you can even play cross-platform play with Android owners too!



  • Kill zombies with a very wide arsenal of weapons, including: Chainsaw, RPG, D.O.M., katana and many others!
  • Over 20 Steam Achievements
  • 5 stunning maps
  • Exclusive Level Editor for PC. Create your own custom maps, then upload and share with friends.
  • Cooperative multiplayer for up-to 4 players
  • Full controller support
  • Online highscores
  • Cloud profiles
  • Weapon customization
  • Player customization
  • Skills, trophies, perks, blood and gore!
  • Original sound tracks composed by Roland La Goy
  • Cross-platform play with Android allowing you to carry on playing on the go!

This is a nice little game its a 2d zombie slaughter arena that is very good if you only have a little extra time on your hands and don't mind just mercilessly slaughtering zombie AI. For the first little bit I was having a little trouble getting the connection to work for multiplayer but have since got it working and it isn't good nor bad as the balancing is a little one sided towards the players if they know what they are doing. (i made it to wave 200 or some odd with other human players before deciding to call it quits.

Pros:
-quick
-Easy to pick up
-Developer is still active

Cons:
-repeatitive
-ai is a little lack luster
-Multiplayers difficulty scaling is non existant

I recommending this game if you want to play with a few pals on lets say a lunch break or when you guys only have a little bit of time together. Singleplayer wise is the same good if your short on time but want to get a little game in.

I LOVE THIS GAME! I bought it because i asked a friend if he wanted to play a game and he asked if i wanted to get a new game. He found this on sale and we have played this game a lot. The gameplay was amazing. We even met a dev in our first few hours of playing. Character options like customising and skill tree. Would refer to friend.
10/10

Zombie Kill of the Week - Reborn is a 2D zombie action game where you have to defend yourself against the horde. In ZKWR you have to fight off wave after wave of undead in hostile environments. Killing zombies will earn you money which can then be spent on weapons and unlocking doors. Killing undead also rewards you with EXP and when you get enough to level up you earn tokens which can be spent on customising/upgrading your character.

+Decent pixel graphics, they aren't the best but I've certainly seen worse
+Tons of customisation options for your character such as perks, weapon upgrades and clothing
+Quite a lot of different weapons with a few more to be unlocked
+Good variety of zombies to kill
+EXP is permanent as are upgrades and appearance customisations
+A few different pickups/powerups which help you, they're basically rip-offs of the ones you'll find in CoD so they're pretty self-explanatory
+If you have no friends to play with you can play with bots but
+The 5 currently available maps are very different to one another
+Nice soundtrack

-As soon as zombies start attacking you from both sides you're pretty much screwed, especially if the fast moving zombies are in play
-Zombies still function and are able to kill you for a few seconds after you destroy their head which is pretty irritating
-Playing this game Singleplayer gets boring very quickly
-Bots have to be unlocked by finding items on the maps which I found annoying
-Painfully bad voice acting

Verdict:
Solo only: Worth purchasing on sale (6.5/10)

Multiplayer as well as Solo: Worth purchasing (7.5/10)

A decent Zombie horde style game with decent graphics, tons of customisation, a fair few types of undead and good maps that's let down by it's lack of focus on singleplayer.

No drama, Just Reviews?

Hours played when writing review : 11

This game is where you endlessly shoot zombies, bosses, and rat like things that steal your money. You buy new guns, unlock doors & even open fridges.

Pros :

+ Amazing soundtrack to the game
+ Graphics are very nice, animations are smooth.
+ "Level up" system with perks and weapons to unlock and it takes ages to unlock all of them. (I only have about half of it unlocked, 11 hours into the game.)
+ High fps over-all throughout the game.
+ Multiplayer doesn't require you to port-forward, and you can pass-word protect your server.

Cons :

- If you get surrounded by zombies, you're most likely going to die.
- Not very many maps. (Not sure if they will add more maps in the future.)
- You might lag in multi-player...a lot. (Rare occasion, but it still happens.)
- Not very many people play this game during certain hours of the day. Hard to get anyone to join a server.

Overall :

9 / 10 stars.
I would highly recommend this game to everyone who enjoys killing zombies. It is very fun, even when you are playing by yourself.
I thought this game would be a waste of time. I was wrong.

Need new steam friends?

I can do this with my eyes closed !!!

In Zombie Kill of the Week you play as a badass dude who tries to survive as long as possible in vary stages full of easter eggs, weapons to pickup, doors to open, bouncers to activate and waves of deadly flesh eating zombies! The game is spiced up with awesome and very manly metal music! You can customize your character by purchasing clothing, hats and changing color of the pants. Unlock achievements, perks and get bots to help you destroy the undead! All purchases are done via ZKW Points, that you earn by playing. Features: - A very wide arsenal of weapons to find and buy, including melee weapons such as chainsaw and katana - Many perks, clothing, hats and achievements to unlock! - 3 hand crafted stages to play, in 3 different game modes and multiplayer.
I recommend this game because i have alot of fun with it.

Zombie Kill of the Week, the game that was originally created back in 2010, and now, it's Reborn.

In this game, you play as your whoever you feel like you want to be. You are forced to survive wave after wave against a horde of zombies that will try to get you at whatever cost at all. After a certain amount of waves a Mini-boss will spawn and your goal is to kill it, and once you do something magical happens. You can buy perks, upgrade weapons and upgrade skills using ZKW-coins that you earn by playing the game from within the ingame Store- you can also customise your player and use the ingame map editor to make your own maps and share them on StillRunnings own servers (You will need to make a StillRunning account to do so). And multiplayer works great, from what i have seen. I didn't experience any lag at all and people where able to join my lobby without any problems.

There are many maps to chose from, and in most maps you will be able to find a cellphone that will let you add bots to your game later on. Also, like in the Call of Duty Zombies mode, there are drops that give you special powers such as insta-kill or rapid fire.

Overall, this game is amazing for the price. 5.99€ for a game that will bring you hours of fun! :)

Zombie Kill of the Week has a very nice developer, let's start with that.
The guy keeps updates rolling in and provides reasons when he can't.
Seems like a nice guy and when a nice guy makes a game, you really can't complain about that aspect.

The game is pretty simple.
You start with a pistol and a katana. X amount of zombies will spawn and you kill them, get money, get a small chance for power ups. Spend money on random weapons in a fridge or to open doors. At lvl 20 you can use it to buy power ups aswell. Bosses will spawn, different enemies, more enemies etc etc. Lots of weapons to unluck with credits which you earn throughout the entire game.

These credits can be spend on: maps, weapons (which you can find in the fridge), crafted items and perks.
Currently there aren't many maps yet, but Mr Dev adds more and more over time.
There are alot of weapons ranging from a crossbow to a flamethrower and even a KILL EVERYTHING IN YOUR SCREEN WEAPON.

Each weapon can be upgraded in your current game to last longer. Bots can be unlucked by picking up phones and you can level up your character outside of the game by earning xp in the game obviously.

The voice over is silly but you'll get used to it. Lots of funny one liners such as "This is my boomstick!" ... Where have we seen that line before ha!

>>>>> I enjoyed the game alot, it wasn't "easy peasy" to get all the achievements but it was very rewarding each time you get that little bit closer to 100%. Very nice to play if you don't want to focus too much, just shoot and chop away untill you die and repeat! More fun with friends online. <<<<<<

I got to say when I got this game I figured, "Hey, it a game I can blow some
time on and move on." Well that blowing some time became hours n hours. I love the idea;
you start from nothing and as you Kill and Progress your character gets stronger.
Better perks, Weapons, ect. There is so much to upgrade that it makes you want to
play more to unlock the next thing. As well the clothing you can buy for your character
was a big "EPIC". Seeing so many refrences from other games, one being my faviorte Cave Story.
The bosses in this game made it more of me wanting to play to see more and what else the game
had to toss at me. All in all it a great game and I had a blast if you are into zombie horde killing
and challenges this game is a Pick me up. I also made a video review if you guys would like to check that out.
I will lick it at the end of my Post here: https://youtu.be/DJR_GWsZqBM

Game is Very good, some multiplayer issues. Mainly lag and connecting but tou can fix your "Failing to Connect issue" by verifying your files (it only takes less than a second).

Pros and Cons:

+ Boss Fights.
+ Good amount of weapons.
+ SoundTrack is Awesome.
+ Multiple types of zombies to kill.
+ Character Customization.
+ Leveling up system.
+ Character and Weapon upgrades.
+ Character Customization (Appearance).
+ The Sounds in the game are good.
+ "Mystery Fridge" (gives you a random weapon or meat, or it can just teleport somewhere else on the map).
+ Upgrade Machine to upgrade your lovely weapons :)
+ Bots are Amazing (path finding for them is kinda strange but they know how to shoot a gun)
+ Edit the way the Bots look.
+ Achievements give ZKW coins that allow you to buy weapons, weapon upgrades, clothing for your character and more. There is acutally a point to getting these achievements.

- 4 Maps only (more will be added in future updates).
- Can get boring without friends :(
- That weird connecting to freinds issue (which can be easily resolved by verifying files).
- Server Lag (when you shoot your gun, the bullets have a second delay before exiting the gun).

All of the issues should be solved soon
Devs are nice people :)
One of them changed my freinds username when he made an error typing it :D

I Rate this game a nice 8/10.
