    I played rebuild and rebuild 2 online and loved them, for a free online game they were pretty good. I bought both the rebuild games on the App Store but I didn’t play this one for a while because of how different it was from the first two, it was a little tricky for me starting out but once I have it a chance I was hooked. For a mobile game and the little amount of money it cost, it is very very worth it. I played through the first time in about a week playing whenever I had the chance. It’s worth the 5 stars but the different endings can be very difficult. I’ve looked for walkthroughs and only found one that seems legitimate, it would be nicer if the random events that ultimately effect the outcome of the game, would be more obvious. I’m not asking for easy peasy, just to be aware of the things I need to do so I can do them. I’m really torn between 4 and 5 stars because it really is amazing, even with the difficulty in figuring out how to get the different endings. I haven’t been disappoint by any of the rebuild games and look forward to any future projects in this series. It’s now on steam so I plan to buy that whenever I can :)

    Love this game it's so addictive I have zero complaints. Make rebuild 4 please. I hope it's gonna have better graphics and interacting controls. Like either way is fine but I would like a new perspective on how to play or how it's kind of 2d.i would like something like league of legends before you actually enter a game.

    The amount of detail snuck into this game is astounding! I followed my Mayor’s journey not just across Canada, but through a long term romance and marriage with her faithful lieutenant, and their three pregnancies each resulting in very different stories. And then I followed her, still pregnant with her final child, on a quest for bloody vengeance when a rival faction murdered her husband, which wove perfectly and unexpectedly into the final narrative. I played the game blind, one level at a time over the course of months. The controls were always quick to return to mind. And upon reaching the ending, a slew of previous choices came home to roost. I know some people are complaining that the choices weren’t obviously important at the time, but I love that they faded into the patchwork of other choices made over the course of the game. I will never have exactly this play through again and that is something I can rarely say about any game. I will absolutely be playing this game again with a brand new hero and their brand new story as soon as possible. May they make new and unexpected mistakes.

    Decent game. There's a bit of a lull in the middle but it get's a bit more interesting at the end. 4 stars because the only way to win is such an obscure unlikely chain of events that requires following a guided walkthrough to figure out.

    Great game, difficulty really ramps from easy to medium and so on. I like that survivor happiness, friendships, and preferences are factored in, although sometimes the reasons for low happiness can be a bit annoying and impossible to really compensate for(fort was better when it was small, zed will always be out, there aren't enough places to get a stiff drink....yet you will have 9 or ten bars being tended). Interacting with factions and dealing with waves of zombies can be frustrating st higher difficulties, but more than adds to the tension. It took waaayyy longer than I expected, but unlocking all the endings is a real slog, bordering on tedious. I don't mind exploration and attention to detail, but having RNG controlled events with zero indicators that it may or may not be important, but ultimately will rule out a specific ending is fairly annoying. I grew up in the Nintendo/Atari era, I can appreciate difficulty, steep learning curves, focus on exploration, and not getting your hand held...just having a chain of random events with absurdly specific requirements that sound like all the made up stuff people post about bringing Aeris back to life in FF7 is disappointing. All in all, it's a great game, absolutely worth checking out.

    Current version is still the game I fell in love with, but I do miss some of the elements from the older version. Still, a very fun logistical game that will entertain people who like a challenge.

    Nothing like a pandemic to make this game even more ironic than it is. I like to build up a dream team of MacGuyver-Fighters armed with rocket launchers and Doctors Scalpals and play the next to final round over and over. Largest map and no inconvenient nuclear detonation or government plots ( wow you sure called that one!) to get in the way. It takes a while to build the right team and I have had some truly great ones but every now and then I delete the app because I waste tooooo much time on it. Free to play free to win is the only thing I will play nowadays and this is my fav.

    It's not a bad game, that's for sure. I want to like it more in fact, but there are just too many deviations from the first two games in my opinion. The art style is... It's bad and doesn't fit the tone the first two games took time to set up. The time part now managed in a different way from the individual days (i know there's an option for turn-based days but it's not the same nor is it optimal) just feels totally different. Not bad, just underwhelming in the face of the first two games.

    Took me a bit to get my bearings, but my God I was hooked. From start to finish it was addiction and engrossing. I freakin' loved it. Everyone should give this a try. It kinda reminded me of King of Dragon Pass, Oregon Trail, the original Castles, and FTL. I loved every minute of it, even the end of the campaign.

    People who say the zombie attacks are too abundant lack common sense. The first one that pops up will be the first to attack. Duh. It goes in order...if you don’t believe play it yourself. You only need to defend one at a time if you pay attention to when the hordes pop up. TIP: On Impossible difficulty, kill all surrounding zombies and be careful. I recommend letting the hordes take the buildings, and then reclaiming them after. Defending against hordes causes lots of survivor deaths. It’s especially easy with Fearless Reclaim perk.

    Right from the beginning of the game is mob after mob of the undead. The difficulty spikes too fast, easily the most unbalanced of all the rebuild games. The opportunity to find more survivors was scarce, almost nonexistent, however, opportunities to adopt 8 year olds who nerfed your survivors skills by 1 each were popping up every few days. The art is considerably worse here, almost lazy, honestly. This series definitely should've ended with the second game.

    The devs really lost sight of their own game design. It's clunky, to say the least. At least the graphics look similar enough?

    It's ok. If you played the first 2, you'll be disappointed and end up going back to the first one. If you're a new player you might like it. But again I recommend the original

    I've been playing this game for some time. It's one of the few games that I actually play over and over. I enjoy starting from scratch again, and seeing where my journey takes me this time. I'm looking forward to another installment of the rebuild series. I really hope there is one!
  • Love it Apr 9, 2019

    By Spotts_420
    I’ve played the first two on the computer, and had to buy this one and I’m glad I did. I’m always worried I won’t play games I buy, but I keep coming back to this one. I love the stories and how each character eventually becomes their own thing with buffs and skills. I like how there are moments where it is overwhelming and then calms to recover, being difficult but not too overwhelming. And it’s unique, which is so hard to do these days! Love it.
  • Love this game... but Mar 31, 2020

    By SophiaMourningstar
    I absolutely love this game. I’ve been playing Northway’s games since like early 2008. This is the perfect zombie apocalypse management game and the developer is so nice and so sweet. I just got a new iPhone and I bought my favorite rebuild (3) and it’s cut off on the left side where the speaker is when you talk on the phone. I don’t know how to fix it, but it cuts off a lot of the important bits and I was wondering if there was any fix for this?

    This game is well developed with great quality control, solid gameplay. Been playing since the first rebuild and the games are just rock solid. Repay value is there but it I repetitive enough that I take long breaks between play throughs.

    Very fun game. I played the original 2 and this is a good addition to the name. I really like the game action. It is different, but very intuitive and fun. The only thing this game really lacked was a more flushed out story and sub stories. So much potential to have random sub stories, that really affect the outcome, pop up in this format. Still very fun. Played throught the story, but it doesn't have a ton to pull me back.
  • Pretty darn good Sep 23, 2018

    By Hippohumongous
    Lots of fun and really addictive. Just one thing, can you please remove the error about the game center connection when game center is disabled (as someone who never uses game center). It doesn't take more than a second to dismiss it but gets annoying to deal with each time I launch the game. Thanks!

  • Gets boring and repetitive Mar 12, 2020

    By MeemoW
    I got to the 3rd city before it started to get boring. You start to feel like it’s less strategy than going through the motions. Story line and objectives are also boring. With you didn’t have to start with a new city and same goals every level. Art is cute though.
