Good turn-based strategy with the instant real-time mode switch is maybe very similar to the previous parts but still brings enough new features so even the fans of the series will enjoy it. Yet the main hallmark of the game is the impersonated gaming experience - in other words, this game will grab your heart, even though (or because) it's about zombies and often about desperate survival efforts.
The proreviewers got it WRONG on this one. It's actually a very fun and can be challenging game depending on your difficulty settings. One of the few games that has an AI that challenges you. I highly recommend this one. Don't listen to the naysayers they are just jealous that it's such a good game.
I was a big fan of the first two flash games. This version isn't much different from Rebuild 2, just much more polished. Press "0" to get turn-based mode, which was how the previous games worked. I like the Civilization type of strategy, and it doesn't require the insane time sink that those games do.
Need your zombie empire builder with huge shockwave/mobile game influence?
Block by block, you will control this city.
You can do it all ~ slowly. You can learn the game and do it all ~ faster the next time.
Might be a tad tedious after a few hours, but set it aside and you'll be thinking about how to finish off this next quadrant, pretty soon.
The gameplay mechanics reward you for trying any of the routes to your objective, and its quick to pick up and enjoy. Unless you crank the difficulty up one or two and find that, yes.. its tough. BUT MANAGEABLE!
Even if you are fighting off the dead all the time, there is absolutely a solve to every issue. There are strategies you can use in all situations, and they arent brain-surgery to figure out.
Enemies on all sides? Limit your sides. Z outside that wall? Take that tile out with everything you got. Or just wait. For a long while. Build around it? Force them to go through enemy territory? Bottleneck them into only coming across the bridges(, should that stage have them) if ya want.
Easier on a touchscreen. Very reasonable graphics and performance. Occasionally funny. Decent soundtrack. Even when the game gets predictable, its 'minecraft' predictable ~ you know you have to 'keep digging' and it doesnt get old like so many games do. :)
SummaryRebuild a ruined city in this post-apocalyptic mix of strategy and simulation. Manage survivors, scavenge for food and supplies, deal with rival gangs, illness, interpersonal strife and zombie attacks.
