Under rating threshold (show) There's something hilariously ironic about the idea of humans slowly spreading out like a plague to eradicate an island full of zombies.

Under rating threshold (show) I strongly disagree with those who say that buildings should generate zombies, instead of using up their "zombie supplies". This game follows the traditional zombie movie idea, i.e. humans turn into zombies. Therefore, the number of zombies in a house depends of how many people lived there before the outbreak; there is no logical explanation for zombie spawning. The same, of course, does not hold for the bridges that connect the island(s) to the world.

Under rating threshold (show) @Duerig: why does it have zombies and survivors in one building?

+ - !

Developer response from duerig

The survivors have barricaded themselves in and are waiting for rescue. Imagine a zombie movie where zombies have infiltrated a house, but somebody has locked themselves in the closet. Originally, I was going to have such survivors slowly turn into zombies as the game progressed (they were found and bitten) so you'd stop finding more survivors after a while. I later decided that was too evil.

Under rating threshold (show) This game is great but it could really use a command to ferry supplies between buildings. Sometimes a depot will have dozens of extra supplies but won't supply the sniper 2 squares away. Additionally it needs a command to vacate all supplies and people because right now you have to abandon a building and then have people recover it.

Under rating threshold (show) 5/5 very good game, a few things i would like to see are the addition of a few more towers, or the ability to fortify a building. I'm sure there are more things i could think of, but for now those would be awesome :D keep up the great work, and i hope you make a sequel.

Under rating threshold (show) This is a ridiculously great game. Easy, yet challanging strategy, but i'll re-say the various things people say need to be fixed. A vacate supplies button for a depot would be nice. Also a prioritise button would be helpful (Get this done first.) and finally, this game REALLY needs better pathing. For the larger, community maps (Spaghetti and kill box, to name a few) are really fun and actually challanging, but after awhile, there are too many things to keep track of, civvies stop moving, the game freezes, and then the zomb's kill you. I recognize that its hard to fix a lga issue like that, but it's the only thing keeping this from being a 10/10 game.

Under rating threshold (show) Fun game! Super Legit! Loved it, was sad it was over. Half the campaign was training was hoping there would be a second island or something when I finished the island. Oh well looking forward to another one that is even more in depth and has a lot more levels. Also could use a little more challenge in the next one for me. Maybe instead of just sound the zombies 'roam' or something so it adds a constant threat, not just when expanding your base or when the timer goes off. But it was lots of fun, hope you are working on another. 5/5

FYI, there are tens of thousands of levels online you can play and billions of random levels available. I'm working on the sequel and will let people know when it is released via my profile page. :)

Well, I guess I'll just aim at him and wait until he gets here!.. Oh no, the zombie broke my incomplete tower! I guess I'll just run to that black corner of the map, attracting all the other zombies on my way!" Zombie 1 "Hey, look, there's a guy running over there!"

Hahaha. Sorry about the bugs. But regarding zombie behaviour, you need to be aware of their keen sense of smell (see the Zombipedia for details). They can track survivors back to camp using it...

Under rating threshold (show) Just an aside to the creator: The amount I've enjoyed this game goes beyond the 5 star rating I gave it. I've kept coming back and sinking hours into it since it made the front page, which is a lot more that I can say for a whole bunch of other games. There are hiccups here and there (like snipers waiting on supplies from the farthest possible depot rather than the fully stocked one right next to them) but overall you've done an excellent job. Keep up the good work.
