Well this one seemed to arrive quietly. I'm a big 2000ad fan and their publisher (Rebellion) published their first game Judge Dredd which wasnt bad but it quite 'samey' with the levels.

Suddenly saw this on their twitter feed, its a great dual stick game with lots of different missions.

The way they do their dual stick is the bottom left to move about and then the fire button you just press and it'll automatically aim/fire in the direction you're facing which works well once youre used to it.

Had a quick go last night and very impressive, its kinda like Bullet Time, missions as i say, there is IAP's but so far havent had to touch it.

But i personally think its really good

This game would rock if the energy clock actually refilled in the few minutes it lists instead of the 160!!! hours it shows after rebooting.

Oops, quit and rebooted again. Now I have to spend money or wait over 440 hours. What BS.

The game is fun; CHARGE ME and get rid of the scam clock!

What am I talking about, I would never do business with a company which makes their product impossible to use within a reasonable human lifetime. IAPS? I'll spend my money on Ascension expansions, GOF2 Expansion, maybe the new Zen Pinball table.

Ya know, expansions, not fake money. From companies that don't treat you like wallet with a name.

Game Impressions


As already Greyskull said there are still a bunch of Bugs (Yes the Audio is one Point of it) left in the Game that need to get fixed otherwise I really liked it so far.

I gotta say this is actually a very awesome game. In general, I'm not a fan of games that make you wait to play them, but generally I think even the clock as it was is fairly tolerable. However, I'm sure the fact the clock goes to 160 hrs or whatever is a bug and it happened to my game as well. Until the clock is fixed, there's no real point in playing it further.

*Note: Don't take everything that happens in a game that seems out of place as an attack on the consumer. So much paranoia running around these days...

...except for certain game companies. I'm lookin' at you, Gamevil!

Multiple IAPs that cost $99. Instant turnoff. Too bad the game has real good atmosphere, and a decent auto-aim DSS-style mechanic.

The energy system is... weak.

5 energy pts is only enough for a mission, instead of 5 missions

Harder missions cost more, but thankfully they allowed us to earn premium currency a by grinding survivors.

Will rate later time. Just my simple impressions

I tried this game. The energy thing turned me off a lot. The game seemed okay but lacking. Besides dead trigger is taking up all my zombie killing time at the moment.

Yeah, it would be great to have a Zombie HQ without such horribly unbalanced IAPs...

I give up.

Uh, this looks just like a reskin of the teribble IAP fest that Jugde Dredd vs Zombies was.
