Long story short, this is a third-person Killing Floor with messy controls, worse graphics and boring repetitive gameplay.

Yeah, you have three characters to choose from (all poorly balanced, if you ask me), a few arenas, wave after wave of incoming enemies, and... that's it. Oh yeah, you also have XP (that affects nothing, except the # of your level), each character has a unique power-up (boring as hell), and there are new enemies each wave, but honestly -- you won't even notice all of that behind the controls.

Game is really hard even on the easiest difficulty. Not because it has some mechanics that'll make you work around them for days, no. Simply because the controls are messed up beyond any rational point, and because enemies are so poorly balanced -- you'll encounter a mob that'll keep stunning you, making it nearly impossible to complete the level with anyone, except one of the characters.

I can write a few more flaws (like really boring sound effects and music), but honestly -- this game isn't worth $1 dev's asking for it. Just ignore it.

I personally can't recommend this game for the following reasons:
- "Microblast Games" developers design a bipolar controls: Left Click to strike/shoot and Right Click to move
a. If you are playing as Jason (the melee character), it is an advantage
b. but if you are playing the ranged characters you just will lose much time of target and run.
- The enemies sometimes hit you by only shake hands. The animations of their attacks are just bad.
- You can be pushed out the arena, but not enemies. They alway have the Final Fantasy Auto-Float magic activated.
- The history is poor, the abstract said "Fight for freedom or money", but at the end nothing happens
- I know is a low cost game, we can't expect to much, but when you literally compellest the players to spend 72 hours to obtain the 3 Steam trading cards you have my displeasure, cause you could beat this game with all achievements maximum in 4 hours.


PRO's
- Fulfilled the meaning of hell (b*tches, pole dancers, demons, zombies, a red world without mercy)
- Interesting survival additions as starve and thirst percent (%) more realistic to me.
- The heavy Soundtrack help much to feel the world-end experience.
- Each character have a special movement.

Nothing else to add, if this game would have been at least character customization (weapons, accessories, skills) the game would be more acceptable and would not have many annoying users giving thumbs down.

I'll start saying that the price is fine considering the general offer. It has achievements and trading cards wich is a very good thing.
The game is an arena shooter and your goal is to survive all 10 levels of each match, there will be regular enemies and some bosses that can be pretty difficult to take down. After completing a level you gain a point that can be spent on ammo, water, food, or health whose levels must be checked in order to keep your fighter alive. There are three characters available: a guy armed with a sniper rifle, a girl armed with two pistols and a close-combat guy armed with a mace.
It can be played in single or in multiplayer with other two people. The latter option is recommended even if there aren't many people to play it online, it's better to have a friend to play with.

The graphic is not too bad considering the price.
The soundtrack features a death metal theme that fits perfectly with the game's atmosphere but gets repetitive being the only song you can listen to.

Sadly I have to make and important complaint: the movement system doesn't allow you to use WASD, but forces you to move the character by pressing the right click button of the mouse and moving it in the direction you want to go. This should absolutely be fixed. The mouse should be used only to aim and shoot at enemies.

There are way better games available but I'll recommend it for the trading cards and the achievements.

Red Risk is a top-down action game made by Microblast Games (Dead Bits, Overcast, Particula). When I think of hell then flames, go-go dancers, and demonic beasts come up to my mind; and Red Risk fulfilled my image of hell.

You play as one of the three characters, each with specific weapon (axe, pistol or sniper rifle) and unique skill. Red Risk tournament starts immediately as you are thrown into the arena - you have to survive through rounds, while taking care of your health, ammo, starve and thirst (stats are regained at a specific place in the arena for credits you get for surviving).

The developers chosen pretty uncomfortable controls, as you have to use one mouse button to move, and the second button to attack. Keyboard is just used for your special ability and to check your stats.

Even though the game is obviously low-budget and the graphics style is not terrible as you could expect, the animations make it look pretty bad in action. Your melee character will swing his axe like he would be on drugs, enemy characters usually attack just by making weird moves next to you. Those moves might seem funny, but they're actually taking your health down, of course.

Ranged characters in the game play pretty bad, as they share the same controls with the melee character, except they have to reload their weapons. It seems that they are made with thought for the co-op multiplayer, as they are pretty weak on their own, especially the sniper.

As I've already mentioned, the graphic style is not that bad until something moves, and there's also indifferent heavy metal soundtrack, that even for a metalhead might feel cheesy, but it does its job. There's several arenas where you can get access after you level up (by killing enemies in unlocked arenas), so you can expect getting few hours of playtime from this, if you'll be having fun. Also, there are three difficulties that indicate the health and attack of your enemies.

Red Risk, as it is, isn't worth recommending. It's a slighty below mediocre top-down action game with bad animation and uncomfortable controls. Also, another important thing to mention is the fact that the developers are known for permanently lowering price of their games shortly after release, so if you are interested, you still might want to wait.

Alrighty then!

I should have looked for more information about this game, but i was too stupid to do that, so i deserve this.
This game looked so similar to Nation Red so i picked it up without looking at pros N cons.

On forums people were discussed if Dev will ever change this game's movement keys too something you know relevant and more common what people are using for years? That's right im talking about WASD keys. There is nothing. You have given ONE movement / move key which is RIGHT Mouse button, lol? and LEFT mouse button for shooting, that's right! It's so stressful to run away and at the same time trying to aim properly and shoot without getting cought or killed. You just can't spam your LMB to shoot, no you actually have to aim your coursor on zombies to shoot them.
Okay, back to WASD disscusion on forums, so that thread was started back in March and there still isn't any reply back from Dev whatsoever. So yea.

If you still want to get this game, i suggest you to do more research on it.

A Fine investment! JK

Opening up the game you start off at the character select screen before proceeding to the main menu. That's right, you don't have dyslexia, you read it right. Some programmer who doesn't understand UX, probably doesn't even play games, was given the responsibility of creating the graphical user interface. Hey at least it saves them a few dollars, but where they were spent I couldn't say. Probably at a ♥♥♥♥♥house. I opened up steam overlay to see how easy it is to find ♥♥♥♥♥s in Microblast's home town of Brazil and found that the game's black borders for non 16:9 resolutions are more along the lines of memory leaks than actual black borders, as the overlay forever remains imprinted on those black strips of abyss. Abysmal.

But what does a few near optionless menus really matter compared to the actual game? Let's head online to find out- ha ha no I'm kidding of course. This game cannot outrun the cruel fate of all indie games everywhere, there's no one to play with online. That's OK though, there's single-player; let me give you a walkthrough:

Step one: Run in circles as zombies spawn and trail slowly behind you, repeat until they no longer spawn.
Step two: Shoot zombies as you run in circles. Oh, and here's a tip, the game doesn't tell you this on the button layout screen which displays every single time you start a game, but you have to press R to reload. If you're using sniper-rifle-guy this means spamming R non-stop because your gun has but one bullet. Where I'm from, when there's only one bullet left in a gun, it's called a suicide bullet.
Step three: Go to step one.
Else: Uninstall.

Product received for free
(tl;dr):

7/10 - It's a fun game, both on singleplayer and on co-op modes, but has a few problems, like kite controls (move and shoot with your mouse, R-click moves, L-click shoots) and no key rebinding.

More detailed review

In Red Risk you participate in tournaments where you must survive several waves of “infected”, in 10 action-packed rounds, all with a nice soundtrack. You can choose between 3 characters with different skills and gameplay styles, 3 difficulty modes and 7 arenas that will be unlocked once you complete a few tournaments (you win “rank points” at the end of each tournament, which will be used to unlock new arenas).

Pros:
- Fast paced action
- Nice soundtrack
- Different characters and a reasonable amount of maps
- Can be challenging enough with the appropriate difficulty mode

Cons:
- Uses only kite controls (you both move and shoot with your mouse - R-click moves, L-click shoots)
- You can't move and shoot at the same time
- No WASD movement option (players have asked for it with no reply yet)
- No key rebinds

Conclusion: 7/10 - Can be pretty fun, but if you can't stand the kite controls, it's probably not for you.


*PORTUGUÊS*

(tl;dr):

7/10 – É um jogo divertido, tanto no singleplayer quanto em co-op, mas tem alguns problemas, como permitir usar apenas o mouse para se movimentar e atirar (click direito para andar e esquerdo para atirar) e não possuir redefinição de controles.

Avaliação mais detalhada

Em Red Risk você participa de torneios onde deve sobreviver a várias hordas de “infectados”, em 10 rounds de muita ação, tudo ao som de uma empolgante trilha sonora. Você pode escolher entre 3 personagens com habilidades e estilos de jogo diferentes, 3 modos de dificuldade e 7 arenas que vão sendo liberadas à medida que você completa torneios (você ganha “rank points” ao final de cada torneio, que serão usados para liberar arenas novas).

Prós
- Ritmo acelerado
- Trilha Sonora boa
- Diferentes personagens e um número razoável de mapas
- Pode ser desafiador o suficiente no modo de dificuldade certo

Contras:
- Só permite a utilização do mouse para se movimentar e atirar (click direito para andar e esquerdo para atirar)
- Você não pode andar e atirar ao mesmo tempo
- Não possui opção de movimento de WASD / setas (os jogadores pediram a implementação disso, mas ainda não tiveram resposta)
- Não é possível redefinir as teclas de comandos

Conclusão: 7/10 – pode ser bem divertido, mas se você não suportar jogar usando apenas o mouse, provavelmente não é um jogo para você.

Red Risk is a horror action game. When you play it, you can easily imagine how is hell looks , because all creature well create that felling.

In game you will not find any story, here you just should killing a monsters what comes in waves. You will find here three playable characters with different skills and combat style. When you play, you should pay attention for some things : health, ammo, starve, thirst. You can pick up a filler for each one from a monsters or buy it between rounds for credit.

In game controls are a little uncomfortable for moving and attack you should use a mouse, a keyboard you can use only for a special skills. The problems with controls you can really feel when you play with range characters.

The graphic and sound in game not the best, but can beat a avarege level.

So my verdict:

+steam cards and achievements
+coop
+creepy atmosphere

-controls
-game mechanism
-replay value

Well this kind of game not that what you want to start play again and again, for a small time its can bring a some fun for you, but only if you like this game style. Controls i think really bad, i hope this been resolved closely. Well i think if its get a bigger discount and you like this style or you like collecting games, you will can buy it.

The graphic is not bad.

However, I cannot believe this is the gameplay:
A 3rd person perspective survival game, that you cannot shoot and walk at the same time.
Simply kiting the walkers, reload, click, click, and click.
(I wonder when my mouse left click will be broken if I continue playing this game.)
I don't see how useful the space bar and the E button is.
The gameplay itself is so boring, and the AI!

Graphic setting doesn't apply until the next launch, default setting lag like hell for MacBook Pro Retina 15".
Some problems for Linux too. (See the discussions)
