  • Summary: The most innovative 3D tower defense game of the year! Defend the town of UnDeadwood in this hilarious slapstick horror game with a western twist.

    As the new Sheriff in charge of defending the town, hire a wild posse of Cowboys and Cowgirls for your fight against the undead hordes. Upgrade
    and reposition them to defend against wave after wave of zombies who are hell bent on destroying the town.
    Unlike most tower defense games, you need to protect your cowboys from attack by positioning them on rooftops.
    However, the Zombies destroy the buildings, diminishing the safe places you can choose to place Cowboys on. You will have to choose when to repair a building and when to abandon a building and fall back to a better position. If the zombies destroy all of buildings, they will come after the Sheriff and you lose.

    Meet the Posse:
    Pistol Packin Cowboys - these young, dumb, sons-of-guns are your basic gun for hire. A good base unit with great upgrades to both speed and damage.
    Shotgun Shootin Cowboys - the Shotgun Shooters are older and wiser than their Pistol Packin brethren, and a little more ornery too. Shotgun Shootin Cowboys can blast multiple zombies at once.
    The Prospector - this crazy old coot has spent far too much time underground packin dirt in his ears. He can be a little reckless - tossing sticks of lit dyn-o-mite into a crowd of zombies - but he sure does get the job done.
    Fannie Smokely - the sharpest sharpshooter in Wild Ol Bill's Wildest of Wild West Shows! Fannie Smokely can shoot the stink off a dog at 800 yards with her trusty huntin' rifle Sally May.

    Features:
    - Hire more cowboys, upgrade their guns, or repair the damaged buildings you are defending - each decision will have lasting effects on your strategy!
    - Progress through colorful game areas, going from "A Fistful of Zombies", through "Little Zombies on the Prairie" and up to "The Great Brain Robbery" in your quest to cleanse UnDeadwood of the zombie menace!

    Cowboys Vs Zombies is a fun new 3D tower defense experience that hard to stick with due to some irritating features.

    With its high level of polish and fun graphics, it's hard not to recommend CvZ, but it just isn't that enjoyable past a few levels. The whole system, in my opinion, needs to be reworked to make better use of the western town.

    Pistol-packing cowboys vs hordes of zombies is a stellar concept, but this tower defense game is hogtied by a faulty game engine.

    Slow pacing, unusual level design, and missing features prevent Cowboys Vs Zombies from hitting its target.
