  • Summary: Such a great game. You know what the gameplay is like so I won't explain but it is so worth your time. I love how long the matches last and the entire concept of the game is so fresh. The game runs great and is a ton of fun.

  • Summary: I bought this game as part of a Humble Bundle and installed it out of curiosity more than anything. It turned out to be my favorite game of 2011. LOL at the people who gave 0 because it was too difficult for them and mistaking stylised graphics for being poor.

  • Summary: A truly unique defense game. Campaigns get challenging quickly, and though it can be brutally punishing at times, it really encourages you to fine-tune and experiment with your strategies. There are some great balancing mods (available through the integrated mod support - an awesome feature that more indie develepors should implement) that all but perfect the gameplay.

  • Summary: Here is a game that takes all the fun out of a zombie apocalypse. The trailers make it seem like the premise is tactically nuking zombies while keeping survivors intact. In reality, most of your time is spent avoiding the absurdly fast pink squares (zombies, just add imagination) and using an easily frightened away helicopter to airlift the defenseless (and largely suicidal) yellow squares.

  • Summary: A great idea for a defense game, but I would enjoy it more if--like other defense games---you were able to actually select your units. You have no control over which units you are allowed to use in an encounter, and when you have thirty seconds to kill 10,000 zombies using only a cement wall, a stick of dynamite, and a mortar that takes a half an hour to reload, the game gets more frustrating than fun in a hurry.

  • Summary: Amazing idea, really fun gameplay but isn't worth a single dollar. It's the most random and hard game I've ever played. you play half of the campaign looking too good, and suddenly the zombies start spreading like a plague and you are guaranteed to get a random selection of the most useless units that will make the campaign unbeatable... Thankfully I got it for free in the Humble Bundle and didn't pay for it...

  • Summary: Very unique game! This is a charming little indie game, so just don't expect DirectX11 graphics, or 20 hour stories. The core idea is simple, you deploy a chopper to rescue civilians from the zombie outbreak, also using other troops to destroy/slow the undead. On the big map you can select which cities to evacuate, while the zombie threats will increase by each round, giving a sense of urgency.

  • Summary: Atom Zombie Smasher combines a simple premise with huge amounts of options. You have different units that each function differently and creates a fun difficulty curve, making each level an extremely unique and rewarding challenge. The game has loads of worthwhile game mods and alternate modes of play that can drastically change your experience. It has a fantastic aesthetic, creating zany and often completely random mood to what could easily be a grim set up.

  • Summary: A fun little game, well worth the 10 $ spent. There's a variety of mods giving you more/faster leveling mercs, bigger cities, etc. All of this kept me playing over and over for quite some time. I found the default campaign difficulty to be rather easy, but the mods add up extra challenge like A LOT MORE ZOMBIES!!!

  • Summary: The graphical style is unique, the story incidental and downright incoherent. There is however, a great arcade style game hidden within this package. From first appearance it suggests a Flash game taken to the next level of polish so if you're a fan of games like "Infectinator" then this will be right up your alley. This is also a game where you might fail on your first or second run through.
