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.

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.

Really fun back in the day. Sadly the server is gone and you can no longer play custom maps that others made, that was the best part.

so confused...

it was a good game and all but i got confused. the unit and resource allocation thing really messed me up.

i got how to allocate stuff to a workshop but then you allocate to a depot?

i started the last level with -4 survivors and wasnt really sure how that worked cause i hadnt done anything and definitely had survivors

i found that the time between waves was pretty easy so i tried to expand across the islands but i would get stuck towards the end cause it said i had plenty of everything but still wouldnt build or transfer ammo even when i had connecting depots to everything... if you could clear that up or make it simpler it would be awesome.

looking forward to a number with more upgrades, zombie types ( and PLEASE a n easier to understand allocation system).
