“Atom Zombie Smasher puts a typically fresh spin on the undead, while leaving the developer plenty of room to unleash his unique, blindsiding sense of humour and laudable fondness for surf guitar.”

Pink squares are zombies.
Green squares are humans.
Do no let pinks get to greens.
Use whatever you have to prevent the zombie outbreak and save the human race :
soldiers, snipers, artillery, barricades, landmines.

If necessary... bomb the whole city! Forget the survivors!

I just reinstalled this game and I have to say that I forgot how fun it is. AZS is a strange amalgam of tower defense, zombie horde killing, and a puzzle game. You manage a variety of mercenaries to control a zombie outbreak while rescuing civilians. When things take a turn for the worse you can call in the Catbird Cannon and the trusty Llama Bombs to eradicate entire city blocks and the zeds they contain. AZS never takes itself too seriously and that's probably my favorite thing about it. The soundtrack is amazing, the game is super cheap, and I can't reccommend it enough.

Simple to learn, fun sense of style and engaging gameplay. A really fun way to sink a couple of hours.

Atom Zombie Smasher serves its purpose as a frugal and time-conscious diversion for those interested in a lite strategy game and do not mind banal presentation.

So in this game, you are defending a country from zombies...I think? Or maybe it has to do with politics. It's a game where the basics revolve around saving civilians and stopping zombies from overwhelming parts of the map (each is its own specific encounter). Interwoven in this gameplay is a borderline incomprehensible plot involving llama-bombs and all sorts of madness. A cool game to try out for a weird experience.

The game is a okay game, but mainly it's hard to win at times.

A fun RTS that pits your limited resources against an ever more ravenous zombie horde. Can be very enjoyable and easy access to mods increase replayability significantly.

AZS is a Tecticial sort of tower defence kind of game. Basically your trying to contain the zombies and for some reason the zombies are green boxes and civilians are purple boxes... soooo its not graphically enchanting... more like kind of laid back. Its a good time waster but thats about it.

One of my favorite pick-up-and-play games. Smooth controls, an interesting challenge, good randomization, and the player is given multiple meaningful ways to interact with the game world. Cut scenes are fun, too.

Note the horrific number of hours I've played this game. Seriously, this is probably the single game I've played most on Steam. SUPER Fun, yet challenging and entertaining/doesn't take itself super-seriously. I heart this game so hard and I wish I could go back in time to pay the Humble Indie Bundle guys way more than I did.
