Sgt. Kirley and his men thought they were finally headed home after the war, but instead they find themselves ordered to join up with enemy forces and sent to defend a massive trench, apparently in the middle of nowhere. Why? Well, it turns out zombies really like trenches (and this one is pretty sweet, amirite?), and if you want to protect this one from the new undead menace, you'll have to master your gun and handle your troops in this simple but effective shooter/defense hybrid from WootraGames.

Seemed good at first, but the "difficulty curve" involved a little too much collision detection via ill-tempered 5-year-old:

Player: "I hit that guy in the face."

Game: "NUH-UH!"

Player: "Um, yes I did. Look, I'll do it again; he's still a way off."

Game: "MISSED AGIN, DOODY HED!"

Player: Um, look, the crosshairs are right over his face. You can see the crosshairs' color contrast changing as they hover over his head, so you know the shot is dead on, since he's much closer now. This shot should hit him. I hit him dead bang."

Game: "DID NOT! YOU SCUK!"

Player: "Aaand, now he's eating my guys. Nuts to this."

Until they fix it so that a hit is actually a hit, not a random decision about whether you're allowed to hit or not, I think I'll avoid it.

[I didn't encounter that problem at all. Keep in mind not all enemies are one-hit kills even if you get them in the head. I'm not exactly a crack-shot, but I'm pretty sure any misses I had were my fault. I'm sorry you're encountering difficulties. :( -Dora.]

Not bad, but it had a laundry list of annoying features that took me out of it.

1. My men go down to a single zombie bite. Zombies take multiple headshots before dying. Of all the conventions in zombie games and FPS games, headshot = death is probably the most common one in existence.

2. Zombies with all of their limbs intact are the slowest. Zombies without an arm go faster. Zombies missing both legs are the fastest of all. What?

3. Artillery strikes take so long to fire for so little benefit. Why would you bother? Presumably they're meant to take out a dense cluster of zombies, but that never happens.

4. Why the heck are we in a trench at all? Trenches are designed to protect you from ranged attacks, and last time I checked, zombies don't have guns.

How does one rack up a big score in the Campaign mode? I finished and I was now where near the middle of the pack. I only had 4 lost men and lots of cash left.

My thoughts/issues:

1) the artillery attacks are somewhat useless. The Howitzer should be more of a direct hit since the model shown is more of a gun vs. mortar attack which would cover an area.

2) why is the most expensive gun relatively weaker than the middle of the road? It seems that with the average damage at 50 that the firing rate should be more than 2x faster than the gun with the 100 damage factor.

3) The french soldiers appear to be the best value for money - again, cost benefit indicates that they have a good firing rate and good damage despite the reduced accuracy

4) the process of selecting a mortar attack is awkward since the screen moves when you go to select an attack - how about a hot key for each type of attack?

5) there is no way to see how much damage has been done to a zombie - maybe it's just me but I hate wasting attacks on a target that a single shot could fix.

6) do you get more points/money for taking out targets vs. your team? It seems that relying on your troops is not the best course of action.

Anyway, I think I've said enough...

I love to play the WWII era games, but found it funny this game claimed it was 1918, but yet they had 1942 machine guns... I didn't look up the dates, but I think some of the artillery was post 1918 era too. Somehow the alternate timeline had better weapons earlier...

That said, the scrolling to get to the next zombie is awkward and artillery strikes weren't as simple as they should have been (see previous posters). I also found it funny your men were more likely to be able to see a zombie off in the distance before you were.

Wow, first time I've not found a game hard and other people did! It's always the other way around. Any who, the only thing I had a problem with was the incredibly slow scroll speed. When you spot a zombie on the map on the other side of the screen it can seem an age until you get to it. Other than that, and how short it was, pretty enjoyable game. The hit detection was pretty solid for me at least, and I ended up making enough money to have full everything a few missions in.

The artillery doesn't seem that effective at first, but I found it important to my strategy because a single click lays down a barrage 7,8 nine times.

I've had the same issues as the others -- but JiGGuest up there in the #1 spot had me laughing out about it. (I think it was the DOODY HED and YOU SCUK that got me)

the flaky controls and hit detection, we've reached the point where instead of OH Cool! Another zombie game!BRAAAAAIIIIINS!

It's gotten to joy. another zombie game. Wonder what's on TV?

Personally I found the game to be quite easy. I found the German soldiers to be the most effective, and pretty much loaded up on them as quickly as I could so that my entire squad was German soldiers and two machine gunners. Then I just spaced them out as evenly across the map as possible and that pretty much kept my covered. Not even the big guys posed much of a threat or got close enough to do damage, and I only lost one soldier the whole game, and that was pretty early on.

I didn't even bother with unlocking the last two guns since they weren't powerful enough to bother, but since I had the money available I unlocked all the artillery, although I think I only used it three times the whole game.

I don't know...maybe I was doing it wrong? :P

Well, nice game overall, well put together, only thing I noticed, the creatoer should adress to is:

- you should limit the times you can reload per.. well reload, I mean, if you press reload more then once then it just stacks over the reload and just eats away your time

I agree there should be hot keys for the artilery strikes. you move the cursor up to the gun, and the whole screen moves away from the cluster of zombies youre trying to get(though ive only ever seen 1 big cluster) when you clik on it and get back to the zombies, there already eating youre mens brains.

and... why can you only have 20 men? i mean the presidents(or chancelors or czars or prime ministers, whatever they had back then) obviously know something big is happening why would they put former eneimies together only a few days after the war. So.. if they knew something bad was happening, why cant they send lots of men?

I realized that spacing out my men was a bad idea because they don't really help each other. Instead I packed my men relatively close on the right side while taking care of the left side so I didn't have to scroll.

Artillery strikes are so small and precise...I don't think that works for that time period. I agree with previous posters that they need hotkeys too.

I also want to point out that fire rate it shows for buying your own guns are inverted for some reason...the lower it says the fire rate is, the more faster you can fire.

The thompson has the lowest fire rate on the board but it's a machine gun! What?
