The Horde is here!
Defend your town from a horde of zombies? A steampunk vibe? Well thought out META gameplay?
I like this game.
Of course there are those other feels when one frigging zombie sneaks into your base and wrecks everything. The game is challenging, I like the fact I don’t always win and lose a fair amount.
My favorite settings for a survival game…
- Mode: Survival
- Map: Peaceful lowlands
- Population: High
- Duration: 100 days
I generally play to relax, as strange as relaxing while zombies try to eat your face sounds.
Other maps can be way harder, but the bottleneck of food and micromanaging you have to do doesn’t mix with my low impact video game workout I am looking for in They are Billions.
If you can beat anything with a score factor high than 370%, I would consider you a top Chad. That is the highest I’ve been able to get using my favorite settings above, but 80 days instead of 100.
For an extra challenge, try playing a map without pausing the game.
They are Billions also recently came out with campaign mode. The storyline is alright, the side quests made me trail off from playing it.
Trying to find the last few things on those hero maps can be painful. I wouldn’t say I like looking around for stuff. I am just not that type of bear. However, a long and challenging storyline could be for you.
The game may be a little old, but if you are into real-time strategy games and zombies, I think you need to add this to your collection.
