Defeat the zombies while managing multiple resources in this hybrid RTS game. Try a random map after the campaign.

The game consists of building towers, managing the resources needed by those towers (and the location of those resources), collecting more resources from cleared out buildings, and using resources to expand and destroy zombies.

Browse the online map database!

Shift-click to place multiple of the same item.
Shift-click on plus or minus buttons to change quota by 5.
+/- are hotkeys for changing survivor quota (board quota in barricades).

Good Show!

I enjoyed this game quite thoroughly. Though pretty simple, it is actually the one of the best RTS I have ever played in this site. It is easy to learn the game's mechanics quickly enough yet it does not bore easily.

The problems I encountered in this game are mostly aesthetic, and can be easily forgotten once gameplay has commenced. In-game however, I wish that there is a way to enforce priority on certain actions in order to respond quickly to situations. Also, unit pathing of the survivors could use some work. Survivors, if gathered en masse on a single depot often fail to retreat properly.

Perhaps next time you can introduce more resources and/or buildings, but then again the relative simplicity of this particular RTS gives it its charm. Oh, and next time please add an alert signal on the minimap that indicates where a building is being attacked. It may become too difficult to locate where a particular attack is occurring if the horde attacks from various areas.

Overall. a pretty good RTS, and by the looks of it, your best game yet. I look forward to seeing your work in the future.

Fresh Spin

This was my first time playing a zombie defense game, so I was very pleased with it.
I would suggest making and undo and fast forward button though.

Here's my level:

Pretty fun game.

This game was pretty good. Simple controls, simple buildings and fairly lenient on the difficulty. Only one problem, the game DESPERATELY needs a speed-up button. Not only do the zombies move fairly slow, they sometimes get confused and wander around back streets and crap, and all you can do is wait. The pace is fine for when you're building stuff, but when you don't have anything useful to build and are just waiting to clean up the rest of the zombies, it was got so dull that I started playing Solitaire just to wait for them to die.
Other than that, it was a pretty fun game, and I spent a good 3 hours or so enjoying it.

Pretty cool

The only thing that kills this game for me is building. I click the sniper tower and it won't let me lay one. I tried clicking the nearest depot to it. I tried clicking off depot. I just randomly laid buildings down whenever it would finally let me. All you really need to do is loot every safe building then have then flee when raid starts. As long as your main base has 2 to 3 useful snipers you can sit back and wait for the mission to end. Though I wouldn't follow this advice since I'm incapable of playing correctly but this idea seems to be solid. I hope I figure this out soon. can't be left behind hehe
