Week 6 Challenge

And now for your regular Weekly News!

Even though we released the workshop and you should definitely check out the levels over there, we haven't forgotten the weekly challenge - and now you have it!

This time, it's Fergie that's on call. Post your Winning Screen with the medal, and the fastest time wins an extra DKAS key :)

The Workshop is now Open!

G'day you Action-hungry folk!

We finally have the Steam Workshop ready and the Mission Editor up in official manner. We even put one Showcase Level up in the Workshop, so head over there and download it quickly, before supplies run out. (I kid, I kid).

Shortcut this way:

For now, the Workshop supports game levels only, which you can subscribe to and will promptly appear in your in-game Workshop menu to enable/disable at will. And then you will find them in the Workshop Chapter at the end of the "Chapter Selection Screen" and you can play them at will.

As for the Level Editor, it's well hidden in your Steam Install folder, specifically in this location:

SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Door Kickers Action Squad\tools\ActionSquadEd.exe

The Editor loads by default a handy "almost empty new level" that should give you a headstart for your designs. The whole tool is a little light on documentation but we'll provide more in the following weeks - though it's not rocket science, in any case. Just study or modify the existing game levels :)

Once you're happy with your work, there's a handy "Workshop Mod Uploader" button in its menu, and you can share your creation with the world.

Have fun, be creative, and expect a "Best Level" Contest soon :)

Your friends @ KHG/Pixelshard

“Door Kickers: Action Squad is like a 2-player 2D Rainbow Six Siege.”

“The BEST SWAT TEAM Simulator EVER!”

“Tons of variety, co-op play, never dull gameplay.”
9/10 – Hooked Gamers

About This Game

Door Kickers: Action Squad is a crazy old school side-scroller action game that puts you in the role of a SWAT trooper and sends you to deal with the bad guys in Nowhere City USA.

Choose your gear, then kick the doors down and face the action. Adapt and react by the seat of your pants, and if needed - restart without a care and rethink. Master weapons recoil and time your reloads, use distance and cover to your advantage and use the in-game Strategic Abilities to decide for yourself when healthpacks or gear refills are needed, or if that team-mate of yours is worth saving. Or just save up the Points earned and unleash your Ultimate to waltz through that tricky final room.

And when it gets too hard, bring over a friend to help.

Quick Points:

  • High detail retro graphics
  • 5 playable characters, each with unique gameplay and level up options
  • Unique in-game Strategic Abilities system
  • 60 non linear levels to complete
  • over 40 weapons and gear items
  • 20+ enemy types and 4 mission objectives
  • Unlock player and squad abilities and use them wisely
  • Couch and Online Cooperative Multiplayer
