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.

Really good

Loving this game. Could be made to be a little more difficult. But still good all the same. Really makes you stretch your limits to get what you need and get your goal. Good job.

It's pretty good, but buggy.

It's concept is okay, but it needs more work. Survivors fleeing from abandoned buildings would not be attacked by zombies, nor die when they attacked a structure. You should change (Sniper tower) to something more fitting. It's not a tower, and for a sniper they aren't very accurate. As well, you should have preset depots, each with their own supply line and area they cover.

For example, a supply depot to the north west of the map has a supply line connecting to one in the bottom left and top right, but if a zombie horde nests or crosses the path than supplies won't be able to get to the other depots, cutting them off from your main depot, or something along those lines.
Another issue is the difficulty commanding your survivors effectively. It's hard saying you want 4 survivors in a depot when it already says there's 3. If you press +1 I think the game wonders if you mean you want 1 survivor there, but can't go any lower than 3. Is there a way to update to fix these issues?

Another problem is that the level editor is slightly difficult to use. Have you played a game called Advanced Wars for the gameboy advanced/DS? Try to copy the level editor from that game and put it into this, and it'll be a ton easier.

Some of the more annoyoing bugs involved around deploying resources, and in some cases, getting your survivors to be where you want them to be. For example, 3 depots in a single supply line with one to the far left, connected to one in the middle, to one on the far right. When you demolish the far left supply line first, and then the middle one before the survivors make it to the middle supply line, they'll freeze in their tracks, and the computer bugs out, not knowing what to do. Sometimes it'll correct itself, most other times it won't.

Nice game

AI is not perfect but the game is good.

Here my map, if you think the game is to easy, barricade useless, tower are too strong, ammo and boards are plenty; try this and it will change your mind. Of course, if you can survive the first battle.

Tip: Think before blowing up the first bridge! You may like to save between wave. Church is full of zombies, but the east police station block is worse.

Great Game!

A well done and highly enjoyable game, only one bug i found can be a major pain in the ass however...sometimes a sniper tower willrefuse to fire, showing the ,out of ammo marker, even if its stocked with ammo and is manned. Seems to do it if you increase the ammo hold amount before the the first surviver reachs the tower to 'build' it. A few things i may suggest is improving the zombies health and/or speed, as well as allowing the to spawn at multiple areas, not just one bridge/ row of bluidinds at a time. A fully upgraded and manned sniper tower can hold off a full wave is it has a clear line of fire, even verus a large horde. Lastly it seems that there is no penalty to abandoning structures, you get all of what was stored in it and its build cost back, the only way to permantly lose boards is for zombies to attack barracades. But none-the-less this is a good way to waste time!!
