Actually really fun!

Yes I’m a real person this is not a fake review… see 1,2,3 monkey in a Christmas tree?? Idky but that should prove I’m real lol… anyways… At first glance it’s kinda basic… it’s very grindy too so if you don’t like grinding and slowly leveling units up and their gear this game may not be for you. If however you do like that sort of game it’s got the cool retro graphics… it’s got tons of small things that make it cool like set bonuses on gear and class bonuses for multiple various units that have the same class. There’s a little pvp and the strategy implementation with different teams and abilities make this game all around fun. Again if that’s your kind of game. I sit in my garage in my free time playing this game chillin. I don’t mind the slow pace and the grinding so it’s chill. Oh yea it’s gonna heavily push ads on you, but again if ur already down with grinding and slow pace and chilling then you’ll actually grow to appreciate the ads because watching them gives you way more extra in game currency then you’d get without it. So watch out for the ad bonuses because they help you maintain a somewhat decent pace as far as upgrading gear and leveling your squad up. I give it 5 stars because it is a 5 star game in my book as far as what I wanted to play and mostly because I’m not trying to just be a critic… I have my issues and even within my issues it’s still a great game! No need to nit pick! Thanks for reading!

Hello, Aaron! It's Dead Ahead Zombie Warfare team. Thank you so much for your detailed and honest review. It's heartwarming to read these kind words. We really appreciate your support.

In depth perception ,


Great gameplay. Great atmosphere. Great sound. Great art style. (I absolutely love how the wind rustles through the hair and the clothes of the units). The bus, the landscapes and the buildings are all wonderfully dilapidated and run-down. The music is both melancholy and haunting, and a huge contributor to the game's amazing atmosphere. It's is a little on the difficult side, but for some this is part of what makes it such an strong title. I wish there were a bit more 'redneck, trailer folk, white trash' type units. These units are, dare I say, endearing? In my opinion some of the units, like Carlos and the swat team, don't really fit into the ethos they have created. But this comes down to personal presence and is a minor gripe - because overall, the game is excellent. It is both unique and familiar, cohesive and well crafted - and yet wonderfully subversive. The gameplay is quick and fun. The wide range of units and enemies does help with the occasional threat of repetition. The ability to swap parts from unit to unit would be a great addition. Again, this is a personal and minor gripe.
Overall this little game is a well polished 'experience' that feels much larger than its parts - a true gem in a sea of mediocre titles that flood our game stores everyday. I hope this company sticks around and is either working on a successor, or perhaps a new IP, or both. Don't miss this gem.

Super cool game but could use some improvement

One thing I got to say about this game is everything is good about it the graphics the storyline and the different types of characters and zombies but the thing I would like to change about this game is one thing the pay to win aspect four so first of all let me just tell you something here the game is completely fine fun it’s too hard when you get further into the game it just gets difficult over time and you can’t really get a good character that can actually illuminate until those offers pop in to the shop the psycho pack the swap pack the special ops pack like one of those I mean I love spending money on this game because I love the game well I’m Donna losing all the time because I don’t get good characters I can’t even get a character unless I buy stuff and get 1000 coins just to get a character even though you get two coins for just one match I hope you would put this in consideration of maybe lowering the prices of the packs you want money and you need money because you’re a company I get it but like it’s so unfair for noobs you don’t want to pay to win and then they will just delete the game after because they can’t even get one pack pass one level.
