Reviews

“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.”
EDGE Magazine


“What happens when one of the most exciting indie developers of the moment takes a shot at the zombie survival genre? Atom Zombie Smasher, that's what.”

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.

Funny game for killing time. There is also a nice feature if you have two additional controllers because you can play with two other ppl on one pc.

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.

This is a game that you can run on a ♥♥♥♥ty laptop. what makes it better is the amount of fun it is to play. A race agasint the clock to save as many people from the invading Zeds. Its a tactical game and does require some brain power at times but my God it can fill time. i have racked up hours of play on this and the mods add even more depth to a game that can be as long as you want.

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.

It gives me the feeling of a solitare boardgame. I find it kind of slow paced and too thinky for my tastes, but overall I'd say it's a good game if you like single player strategy games. The overall aesthetic (with the surf music and the unlockable comic panels) makes it pretty charming. Just kind of boring overall.

Fun game, you kill little pixel zombies and save little pixel people, or at least that's how I remember it.

Sadly, I can't currently recommend the game as it just fails to load(No idea why as there was previously no problems). First issue I had, was a missing .dll, not a problem, just copied it over from windows. Except, it just led on to another error, failed to initialise MONO, not a problem, just delete a .dll. Of course, that didn't actually do anything, so the game still fails to load and my final option was to run it via XP compatibility, which gave me a blue screen crash(first time ever on this PC) so I immediately uninstalled the game.

Shame, it really was fun when it worked.

A tower-defense game with zombies represented by dots. pink dots. Funny Style, presentation & music. The game difficult & frustrating though.

Broken. Plain and simple. It refuses to run on my computer, and I haven't a single clue why.

AZS is a great indie game in the tradition of minimalist game going for maximal gameplay. Start off with just a chopper trying to recuse civilians from zombies and slowly build up your roster and level up your units. As the game progresses the zombies become more numerous and harder to control until you need to resort to the ultimate Llama bombs!
Great replay value, moddable and fun you can kill 5 minutes or 50 with equal ease. Great fun!

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.

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