About This Game

After the alien invasion: the Gogfang began terraforming Earth, pumping out toxic chemicals to transform it into the perfect trans-dimensional, methane paradise… the process should take fifty years.

In the meantime the strange blend of chemicals has begun to mutate the populace, turning some into hideous, fish-people, and reanimating the dead. So far you have been immune to these changes and have fought your way across the country back to your parents’ hotel, hoping they are still alive.

Whether they are or not, you have decided to make a go of it, to repair and renovate their unsightly, sixties-styled hotel into a community where people can be safe from the aliens, mutants, and zombies. Of course… they will have to pay you for the service.

Just bought from sale has some bugs that have been reported for months that are not being addressed. The bug would not let me play even one random mission without crashing. Unless they patch I dont recomend a purchase.

I really wish I could recommend this game. The premise is fantasticly fun and what little I got to play was great. But constant crashing and less than 10 frame per second playspeed just made it intolerable.

There’s a hotel out in this apocalyptic world in Hotel Apocalypse (no surprise there), a hotel that was once owned by your parents. You go off in search of them at the hotel, but alas they don’t appear to be there. So, in response to this, you’ve just decided to make the world’s first apocalyptic hotel.

Now, before you say anything, I will just mention that I do understand that the game is built in RPG Maker, but that doesn’t make it any less of a good game. Whereas other games in the engine may not be quite up to par, Apocalypse Hotel, along with another one of the developers games built in this engine makes use of their own art assets. The inclusion of their own art assets makes the game so much more interesting to look at when it comes to the visuals, instead of being forced to look at the same grass patch you’ve seen in every rushed out RPG Maker game ever.

On top of the change in visuals, the developer has decided for something other than the typical turn-based combat you would see out of this engine. Instead, the dev has decided to go for action oriented combat that happens in real time. Everything in terms of combat will reveal itself to you the moment you load up the game. Zombies will wander around, you press a button to fire your weapon, and then their health bar drops. Keep doing that until said zombie is down and deceased; permanently! It has to be said, the combat is a nice change from the typical combat you would see from this engine.

To make the combat just that little bit interest, the developer opted in to add a companion system, with the first companion you come across being a zombie dog. And I tell you what, the moment you get that dog, it makes your day’s of zombie killing sooo much easier, that has to be said.

Although, with the change of gameplay, the game does have a level up system for both you and your companions, all of which will level up depending on how much they’ve managed to take down. Levelling up is purely a buff for stats, however, and doesn’t require you to do anything once you’ve levelled up, as you will already have the buff added to the character whom had levelled. Each character in the game can also equip different weapons and items as well, even if they are an undead dog that follows you everywhere out of love and loyalty.

Video games that have the undead in don’t tend to have the best of of storylines, all due to it never really being a focus. Well, with this game the developer has put a little more thought into the story, and I would have to say it pays off. The gist of it: aliens land on Earth, they change the atmosphere to accommodate them, and the majority of humankind just kind of died and was revived as zombies. Initially the plot isn’t anything too special, but with each new piece of story I come across it really brings me to want to find out more about what’s going on in the world.

Apocalypse Hotel may center around you running a hotel, but that doesn’t mean you have to hang around there for the rest of your days. You will be expected to go out often and do quests, as well as finding new items and parts that you can make use of. Those parts you can use for a myriad of things, and not just around the hotel. You’re given the option to build new weapons, ammo, and fix up parts of the hotel to make it more desirable to potential guests.

Obviously, the main chunk of gameplay is keeping the hotel in check. Throughout the hotel you can make improvements all over the place, from restocking the bar, to building the most expensive room imaginable, only for the most prestigious of guests. Thankfully, those guests won’t be staying for free, so they will pay you a regular fee for staying each and every night. The price they are willing to pay will range between each and every guest, so be sure to keep an eye on new potential NPC’s, as they may just be looking to pay more than another individual. Some guests require special rooms, but they tend to be worth it. The reason being is that they will offer something a little more than just the typical fuel that you use for all sorts in the game, like travelling.

Guests may be good for one thing, but they do need to be fed (unfortunately...). So, it is in your place as the hotelier to feed your guests. You can simply do that by going into the kitchen and making some hotel meals out of whatever you can find in the overridden city, but be careful; the more guests, the more mouths to feed, so be sure to keep that in mind.

The city you’re tasked to explore isn’t all empty, as at times you will come across quests that you’ve accumulated over time. These quests tend to range in difficulty, and for the most part will mention whether they’re easy, medium or hard to complete. Quests are your typical fetch jobs that you need to do, but they do end in a reward, so you can’t really complain.

These next few things are rather miscellaneous, but I felt that they deserved some mention. The game has a 24 hour day and night cycle, where every second in real life is a minute in-game, and depending on what time it is, your character will require a light when it is dark out. Trust me, when it’s dark out, you’re a little more reserved when it comes to going anywhere, as it is very difficult to tell where the next attack comes from if it’s not directly in front of you, and that’s just a little bit terrifying. Next up is shadows, and even though you won’t come across them too often, they still look pretty darn good when your character walks past the odd lamp.

With the time I’ve spent in the game I haven’t really come across too many problems so far, but there is one thing that does bug me, and that’s the sound effect you get to hear whenever you save the game. The sound effect is of a zombie growling in your ear, and every single time I hear it, regardless of where I am in the game it makes me think a zombie is right behind, gnawing on my character while I’m stuck saving. It’s never the case, but it’s just a tad annoying to assume as such every time I save.

Overall, the game makes for one very positive experience when you compare it to many other RPG Maker games. But it isn’t just the case of it being a good RPG Maker game, as it is just a solid game on its own. A game where being the hotel manager during a zombie apocalypse is such a bizarre idea, and yet it works and it works well. Couple that with an interesting plot that I really want to see where it ends up, then you’ve got yourself a game that I would personally have to recommend.

I'm extremely disappointed in this game. Oh, it's fun. When it works. But it often crashes espiceally since the last update and the developer has no responded to anyones complaints. I've past the point where I personally could get my money back a long time ago. So warning about this before anyone else wastes their money.

I really wanted to like this game, the idea of it was nice and the gameplay seemed like it would be fun however with how clunky it plays and the amount of bugs in it I cannot say it is worth your money.

I've played and enjoyed the other 2 games that this dev has put out and I'm so glad I've stuck with them to get to Apocalypse Hotel! I'm not a massive zombie fan generally, and it's creepy as hell fighting these guys at night, but I'm already too in love with what I've seen of the world and the species in it to give in to my fears! Being mobbed by loads of zombies by torchlight is super scary, almost as scary as the decor in some parts of the hotel itself! Haha! But I've upgraded some rooms and I'm making it work. It's retro!

Anyway, I'm going to go back to playing now, but I'm loving the interplay between aliens, zombies, mutants, and humans - it's a totally refreshing take on this genre and I can't wait to get further into the plot! Running smoothly on my not overly-fantastic laptop as well, so yay!

What looks like a decent game has become broken by a persistent error that has gone unfixed for months while the devs focus on their new game. Too bad.

If the major bug (disposed sprite) gets fixed it might be worth a go

The game is good, but the constant crashing from that single sprite bug is annoying. untill they fix it i would only recommend buying at a sale.

With that out of the way..... some words about the game.

You arrive at your parents old hotel and decides to make it running again. Despite an apocalypse going on.

There is plenty of fixing and crafting to do. I have only played it for awhile so i havent gotten too far in. but so far im feeling good about it. Exept for the sprite bug (with can be avoided by making sure your companion isnt in combat while trying to exit the area). Would i recommend it? both yes and no. At a sale yes. After they fixed bugs i would recommend it none the less.

You can't play the game cause the bugs are so severe that it crashes after a few seconds/minutes.

Devs abandoned this game. Don't buy anything.
