I've been waiting for this! I hope it's as good as it looks!

Even the first line "wifi free" is awesome

Not bad at all. Had a quick go, cant stand the usual 'can we spam your facebook account?' stuff which i always say no to. Done a few missions, all good. Nice change to the overhead view of other zombie games.

Finished the 'tutorial' missions, seems to be lots of currency though so nervous how that will pan out. Well worth picking up but not sure how it'll be long term as it mentions the shop being activated. Once i reach a paywall i'll delete

The base game is very good but I do have concerns. It's very very hard (and I'm a very strategic gamer myself). You need lots of special currency to get things like upgrades or recruit more people. One touch from ANY zombie is instant infection on any of your units. If you want to cure them you need to have a rare item or watch an ad. Otherwise they are unusable.

Also the core base management part is very hard. You lose food and water so quickly that it's hard to do other missions since you keep getting prompts that your resources are running out. I already hit game over after 20 minutes of play.

This game would've been incredible if it was a paid game. I can see how all these resources are made to weigh the player down and make ad watching more frequent. I really like the game so I will still give it a try but I hope it's not as difficult as it appears.

After what you wrote I think Ill pass. I was nervous it might be like that. Shame as I think it had potential but the freemium trappings might have ruined it

There is *some* hope for this game. I see that when you get game over you can restart in a previous state earlier in the game but all your upgrades remain so it *should* get easier and constant replays. Will need to test more.

Will give it a try as its free but appreciate the commentary from you both. Trust your opinions and usually find myself enjoying the same types of games so thanks for the heads up. I assume that this will be a catch and release.

Yeah pretty much my thoughts as well. The actual gameplay itself is a lot of fun but its just stuffed to the gills with the usual freemium trappings. Such a shame.

I'm enjoying it so far. No energy system or internet connection required has to count something.
