Deadly 30

Deadly 30 is a delightful throwback to the older side scrolling games, when gaming was simple and yet so freaking addictive. From the looks it seems to be an alternate reality of World War 2, either that or the soldiers involved in the game somehow have gotten transported to another reality, a reality with mutated zombies. Moving along in this side scroller, you can move your little soldier dude along to either side of the screen and travel back and forth between different environmental levels. Though the main purpose here is simple, survive!

The game also sneaks in elements of a tower defense in regard to having to defend the little shack of a base and the generator that runs it. The game is for the PC and may be available on STEAM and other download sites; it was unclear at press time if this was the case, though everything seems to point towards that for this surprisingly fun game. Just drop all your troubles and jump in with no pre conceived expectations other than surviving 30 nights!

Protecting the base and keeping the fences repaired is very important. The fencing buys you time when the hordes are coming from both sides of the screen. If both fences go down and they are coming from both directions you can get over run easily and itís game over man.

Further if the place gets run over, the nastyís will come right after you, so going up to the second floor only buys you a few seconds, these mutant zombies use doors and will come up after you!

Defending the base and keeping yourself alive for those 30 nights is paramount, leaving the base during the day and going forth to forage for scrap metal and materials will keep the base going for another night. Scrap metal is like currency in this game, the more you find the better because you use it to build extra defenses, get more ammo, and even build more gun types as you level up and find blue prints for new weapons. There are twelve gun types in all ranging from machine guns to shot guns, to a surprising alien technology weapon.

For a side scrolling game, there are some nifty environments, they are just aesthetic and other than the general looks, just seem to serve the purpose of changing the scenery. But like old school gaming it serves the purpose and only seems to add to the quaint attraction to the game. The further out the player explorers the more resources they will find, though also the game ratchets up the dangers the further out you go as well.

There is a time effect in the game represented by a round clock like object at the top of the screen, as the game goes on, it changes showing how much daylight or night you have left.

Advancing in the game there are other soldier survivors from different armies and the player can switch control between the characters they pick up, just in case they need a human touch to the tactics being used in a situation. Though the other survivors defend against the zombies very well on their own.

Deadly 30 is the perfect retro game to unwind with after a long day, when you just want to shoot crap and defend your base. I say the business is a killing mutant zombies, and business is good!

Have fun play games.
