  • Summary: Rescue hostages, disarm bombs and save the day in this old school, side-scroller action game with retro graphics and retro sensibilities. Online and couch co-op included. Choose your gear, then kick the doors down and face the action. And when it gets too hard, bring over a friend to help.

    Door Kickers: Action Squad has been a fun action side scroller to play. It is very reminiscent of the retro games I used to play on my Sega Genesis. From the graphics down to music, it has been hella fun.

    A lean and tactical retro shooter that soon reveals surprising amounts of depth, Door Kickers: Action Squad's bite-sized missions seemingly fit into that time no other games do. Don't sleep on Door Kickers: Action Squad.

    Door Kickers: Action Squad may look like just another retro-styled 2D shooter but the game's tactical gameplay really elevates it beyond the usual indie efforts.

    Door Kickers: Action Squad is using its predecessor as a model to divert aesthetic codes and game mechanics. Where the original Door Kickers immersed the player in top-down tactical battles, Action Squad focuses on direct battles for immediate pleasure, all in an 80's American action movie atmosphere. Fun in small doses, Action Squad will be particularly enjoyable with a second person over a beer and snacks.

    A great 2D side scroller shooter. Great maps, good variety of enemies, different locations, great graphics. Different kind of gameplay too,A great 2D side scroller shooter. Great maps, good variety of enemies, different locations, great graphics. Different kind of gameplay too, not just shoot everyone that moves. You got to manage both your reloading of ammo and shooting. Definitely one of the better 2D sides scrollers i have played in a while and a good price as well. Expand
