Atom Zombie Smasher by Blendo Games is the most fun I have had on my PC in quite some time. The game is insanely addictive and very challenging. Who knew that bombarding pink dots with artillery shells could be so much fun?

Atom Zombie Smasher is a great indie title, it’s proof of what one man can do with a good idea. It might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but for those looking for a good strategy title, this is a great title by a (very) small company, and it shouldn’t be missed.

Game and Player (Jan 24, 2011)
Brendon Chung et al. define development independence strictly through their originality, the innateness of creating things featuring tempered mechanics dressed in weird charm, so best that some technicalities get sorted out — because Atom Zombie Smasher is fun, and we really do want to keep watching for whatever they dream up next.

Frictionless Insight (Jul 18, 2011)
The true wonder of Atom Zombie Smasher is that it limits the player to a few simple strategic and tactical decisions, but makes the entire game hinge on those decisions. Choices are meaningful and powerful, making Atom Zombie Smasher engrossing at every step. And a little weird.

The game can be difficult, in places, but perseverance is the key. You will reach a point when the odds are stacked against you, but try the missions again and it won’t be long before you can unlock some of the big guns and really begin to claw back that territory from the Zed’s. There is so much more to the game than I can represent here – overall a superb game, with a great story, cool music and heaps of playability and what’s more, it’s cheap as chips, so go out and buy it.

Schade: Brutales "Ausprobieren und Neustarten" lautet die Devise. Denn wenn untote Hautfetzen die Betonwüsten in Nuevos Aires überrennen, kann man auf Entwicklungen im Gefechtsverlauf kaum sinnvoll reagieren. Sämtliche Einsatzgebiete sehen noch dazu beinahe gleich aus, so dass der Kampf um Territorien wie eine Wiederholung des ständig Gleichen wirkt. Und dennoch entpuppt sich der Widerstand gegen das Gammelfleisch als beinharter, ungemein spannender Wettlauf gegen das Unvermeidliche! Die fiese Brut breitet sich unbarmherzig aus und die eigenen taktischen Mittel sind beschränkter als das erste Taschengeld. Man braucht einen kühlen Kopf und den unabdingbaren Willen, den Schaden nicht nur zu begrenzen, sondern ihn gänzlich abzuwenden. So packend ist strategische Gebietseroberung nur selten. Und so entnervend der Trial&Error-Kampf gelegentlich sein kann, so befriedigend ist es, wenn ein Plan endlich funktioniert. Ich hasse Zombies! Aber ich liebe es, ihnen hier eins auszuwischen!

Un bon titre. Original, simple de par son concept, frais. La difficulté est là, vous accrocherez au gameplay immédiatement, et le jeu est facile à prendre en main. Le côté humour du titre n'a pas été négligé, et c'est aussi très plaisant. C'est donc un très bon jeu, qui vous occupera durant ces froides soirées d'hiver.

Reducing people to blocks sends a pretty clear message. The game's absurd vignettes about baseball players and El Presidente do little to mask the fact it's really all about cold, hard, brutal numbers. Speaking of which - you're unlikely to get more than a handful of campaigns in before your interest in AZS begins to wane, but that should be more than enough to get your money's worth.

Beneath the silliness, charm and verve, Atom Zombie Smasher is clever and absorbing, and deserves the following it will undoubtedly attract. While the its refusal to be pinned down to a specific genre is both charming and frustrating, it’s likely that many will come to regard this as an essential quality of the freeform, off-kilter experience that is fast becoming Blendo Games’ calling card.

Das knifflige Endspiel motiviert zum Weiterspielen, auch wenn Ihre Erfolgschancen weniger von Ihrem taktischen Geschick abhängen, sondern vor allem vom Glück.

Atom Zombie Smasher is origineel en verslavend maar heeft een steile leercurve. Met de 'Nuke the entire site from orbit!'-strategie zal je niet ver geraken.
