It's been a few years since the zombpocalypse turned the world's cities into graveyards and sent the few survivors into hiding. Now you must gather them up and restore civilization to a ruined city, one building at a time.
Rebuild 3 is a strategy sim game with a good helping of narrative and dark humor. It's a thoughtful game that'll make you fond of your survivors before you send them to their deaths for the greater good. As you expand your fort to new buildings, you'll decide between farms or fortifications, housing or hospitals, and make tough decisions to fend off raiders, illness, starvation, and madness. And the dead are still out there wandering the streets, hungrier than ever.

Truly worth the money
I played rebuild and rebuild 2 online and loved them, for a free online game they were pretty good. I bought both the rebuild games on the App Store but I didn’t play this one for a while because of how different it was from the first two, it was a little tricky for me starting out but once I have it a chance I was hooked. For a mobile game and the little amount of money it cost, it is very very worth it. I played through the first time in about a week playing whenever I had the chance.
It’s worth the 5 stars but the different endings can be very difficult. I’ve looked for walkthroughs and only found one that seems legitimate, it would be nicer if the random events that ultimately effect the outcome of the game, would be more obvious. I’m not asking for easy peasy, just to be aware of the things I need to do so I can do them.
I’m really torn between 4 and 5 stars because it really is amazing, even with the difficulty in figuring out how to get the different endings. I haven’t been disappoint by any of the rebuild games and look forward to any future projects in this series.
It’s now on steam so I plan to buy that whenever I can :)
My favorite mobile game
The amount of detail snuck into this game is astounding! I followed my Mayor’s journey not just across Canada, but through a long term romance and marriage with her faithful lieutenant, and their three pregnancies each resulting in very different stories. And then I followed her, still pregnant with her final child, on a quest for bloody vengeance when a rival faction murdered her husband, which wove perfectly and unexpectedly into the final narrative.
I played the game blind, one level at a time over the course of months. The controls were always quick to return to mind. And upon reaching the ending, a slew of previous choices came home to roost. I know some people are complaining that the choices weren’t obviously important at the time, but I love that they faded into the patchwork of other choices made over the course of the game. I will never have exactly this play through again and that is something I can rarely say about any game.
I will absolutely be playing this game again with a brand new hero and their brand new story as soon as possible. May they make new and unexpected mistakes.
Great game, difficulty really ramps from easy to medium and so on.
I like that survivor happiness, friendships, and preferences are factored in, although sometimes the reasons for low happiness can be a bit annoying and impossible to really compensate for(fort was better when it was small, zed will always be out, there aren't enough places to get a stiff drink....yet you will have 9 or ten bars being tended).
Interacting with factions and dealing with waves of zombies can be frustrating st higher difficulties, but more than adds to the tension.
It took waaayyy longer than I expected, but unlocking all the endings is a real slog, bordering on tedious. I don't mind exploration and attention to detail, but having RNG controlled events with zero indicators that it may or may not be important, but ultimately will rule out a specific ending is fairly annoying. I grew up in the Nintendo/Atari era, I can appreciate difficulty, steep learning curves, focus on exploration, and not getting your hand held...just having a chain of random events with absurdly specific requirements that sound like all the made up stuff people post about bringing Aeris back to life in FF7 is disappointing.
All in all, it's a great game, absolutely worth checking out.
