CN/JP/KR Localizations Added!

We just added Chinese, Japanese and Korean translations to the game. Oh and Brazilian-Portuguese too, while we're at it :)

As always, we've worked with highly experienced professional translators AND tested the translations in the most efficient way (let's just say that random Chinese mom #3 at the kids playground was very enthusiastic and supportive).
But in the off-chance there's still bugs in the translations, please report them in the relevant thread:

In other news, we fixed that annoying issue with the Online COOP lag. It should be smooth as a Breacher run through a hostage room!

Action Squad Out in Full Force!

You know the drill - get your pixelated Mp5s and workout those boots - Action Squad is now out of Early Access!

We’ve had a successful run of 10 months in Steam Early Access and more than 18k of you have already kicked doors with us, and we couldn’t have done it without you. For all you who supported us and put up with our development issues and bugs - Thank You!

When launching the new version, the game will ask to reset your profile. Please, please please, listen to that advice and start from scratch again. The game changed a lot and its worth it to take it slowly again - and it also prevents unforeseen profile corruption and conflicts.

Hundreds of you have already shown us how much you like the game - through emails, messages, forum posts, reviews or even the good old face to face nod at PAX and Gamescom.

And there’s nothing quite like the smile and thumbs-up you get from a stranger after playing your game.

But development doesn’t stop here, so neither should your feedback stop. Tell us what you like. What you don’t. What you want more of.

And expect more to come. More missions. More game modes. Mission Editor. Workshop Support. More mission types. More playable characters. And, of course, more, more crazyness.

Also released is the stellar soundtrack by Gavin Harrison. If you like your synthwave as much as we do, get the soundtrack too!

Enough talking, get kicking - there's a cartel that needs to be put down.

“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.”

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
