Rated 4 / 5 stars

A really great game deserves a really great rating. The only thing it's that you need to fix de Save system in Arena combat. Because, i played the most of the game in Arena combat and when i started to play again today i found with this ... Empty, non saved thing.
Oit of that. Everything it's really awesome. Keep like that.

Krinkels responds:

It's Chrome. It's doing it to everyone. Your data will return as soon as Google fixed it.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

The game fine but the bug that you cant save is the part that suck you cant get even in zombie mode anymore

Krinkels responds:

Chrome is broken. Use firefox, your old data is intact.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

This game is very good. But it can't save the progression of this. why?

Krinkels responds:

Chrome is broken.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

I give the game three-point-five stars. As far as I can tell, it's a very well-made game; a top-of-the-line example of the genre. Nothing especially innovative, of course, but then again we don't come to Krinkels looking for "innovative." We come looking for blood and gore, violence, mayhem...we come looking for Madness. This game has it. All the Madness you could ever desire is right here.
That being said...
There are a few scruples I have with the game.
If you play it in Chrome, there's little or no lag but the game's save feature doesn't work.
If you play it in Firefox, you can save all you want but like it or not you're going to die a couple thousand times from the crippling lag. Now, I'm not at all tech-savvy, so I haven't the foggiest where the lag could come from, but I do find it rather interesting that one browser could have zero lag when another is quite veritably soaking in it.
Whether or not it's the creators' fault that these problems exist, they ARE there. They take so much away from the enjoyability of the game that I have in fact decided to dock a half a star for it.
Which would otherwise leave us at four stars.
Where did the other star go? Gee, I do wonder...
...Look, I know it's how the genre is supposed to be, but let's face it. The game's repetitive. All the mooks taste the same, and if you get a G0L3M thrown in here or there, well, that's just plain lovely but In my opinion it's a diet cola to your junk meal.
As far as melee goes, once you get the binary sword everything's done. I just find it slightly irritating that you've made this big game with all these different guns and weapons, and it turns out there's one gun and one weapon that each render every other specimen obsolete. Sure, there's the signpost, which has a slightly higher range... but it breaks apart in all of four or five hits, and the binary sword does fully twice the damage for all of that. Hell, if you wanted range, you'd buy a rifle in the first place.
You've nerfed the M249 twice now. Yes, it costs a shit-ton to bring out, and it's heavy. it still trumps everything else.
The arena is a constant grind with a very noticeable cap. All of the characters WILL end up looking the same. What little customisation there is comes at the cost of efficacy and survivability. With that said, I do enjoy the flavour text you've added to the guns and melee weapons. It's a shame you don't also have individual text for the armour, but I won't grudge that too much.

All in all, I think 3.5 is a fair rating and a nice, round number. I enjoyed the game, and it ate up plenty of my time, which is really why we're all here, you know?
But I've played better.
(PS: Apologies for the arguably harsh rating)

Lots of people find this review helpful!
