A brilliant game

Back to the days of well made strategy games that aren't just clones of Clash of Clans, crappy copies of tower defense games, or more ported nonsense from triple A publishers. This game challenges and immerses you in a field of mindless hordes of the undead and does its best to hold your hand, but doesn't carry you either. A game that sets you up as an international mercenary/humanitarian organization which gets funding from selling equipment to governments, rescuing VIPs, taking down terrorist and rebel groups, and clearing our zombie infested cities. This developer clearly knows his stuff, and outside of minor grammatical errors and spelling mistakes, as well as glitches with newer features, this game shines like a diamond in the rough. I hope to see much more progress with this masterpiece. It's well worth the price, the only thing I would advise is using an iPad rather than a phone, as precision and the large screen is much more helpful than anything else.

Worth every penny

This game is not only better than the more expensive Zombie Outbreak Simulator Pro, But it also allows you to control your marines, and unlike Zombie Outbreak Simulator, you actually have missions and a goal instead of just doing the same thing over and over. And thankfully, you don’t have to pay to use cheats because the developers have graciously provided them for you on their Facebook page, and the developers are very active with their players as they develop this game.

Hidden Gem

This game is amazing. I can’t believe it was buried so far down on the strategy game list. It’s a great mix of tactical modern day combat, turn based strategy and critical thinking needed. I’m in love with this game. Best $3 I’ve spent on a mobile game.
