  • True Classic, great game Jul 13, 2020

    By Kilian haines
    This game is a true classic. It’s detailed and such a time killer. If you are iffy about the graphics, then what you see is not what you will get. This is an amazing game, and even better is the (third) Rebuild. The graphics here could use a little work, but that is what the third one is for. Anyway, I can’t allow myself to give this 4 stars because the saving system isn’t very easy. You cannot easily delete save files, so it’s just going to take up a random one if you want a new game. Unfortunately for me, it took up my main save file. I even tried to go to a test save file which had around 350 survivors in it. I tried to kill all of them (I succeeded, turn on Winter mode and let the starvation occur), but could still not rid of the file. But I really do recommend this game. It’s only troubling if you have four saved files. Oh, and also, this game could use a lot more depth. Some of the events are a bit vague, but then again this was definitely changed in the third Rebuild.

    Bought this because of the positive reviews, but after playing it I have to say that its not for me. Was hoping they would be more animation and get to see the actual zombies rather than splash screens. Its not a bad game, just not for me

  • Great game, but the winter, well... Mar 11, 2015

    By SirNonimous
    I actually played this game on armer-games a long time ago. It's as fun as I remember it, and it seems to me that the creator(s) of the game made it a bit more difficult that it's older counterpart. The only reason I can't give this a full 5 stars is because of the winter setting. There is this unbearable spike in difficulty when all of the farms just stop working. I know that is part of the problem with winter, but you can't develop a means of any kind with the laboratories, builders, or anyone for that matter. I tried scavenging for enough food to keep my city afloat, but there wasn't enough to collect, either. A fix to this would be, during the winter, if you have all the agricultural stuff upgraded to max, you can develop greenhouses that give half of what a normal farm gives; until you upgrade that to max. I like how the game is during the rest of the game, but tweaking that would do wonders for it as well.

    Old gold, from an era when games were good, rather than just advert laden reskins over and over. No loot boxes, no cooldowns, no pay for emotes or hats. Just a damn good game.

    Following the rebuild series you can’t be disappointed! I’m always looking for good games on the App Store that isn’t all about in app purchases and waiting. This is a great one, this and Rebuild 3 are both worth the money you pay. This one makes me think of rebuild 2 more than rebuild, both of which you can play online for free or get on steam, but having the mobile option is great. This one is a bit different from rebuild 3 but it what made me fall in love with the series, the developers work hard and it really pays off, if you have the money and are looking for a really good game, your search is over :)

  • Fraud! Jun 4, 2017

    By hootie_paladin
    Once I got to the "seriously hard" level, I realized there is no winning that board. Every step forward towards progress, you are overwhelmed with zombie attacks, food shortages, desertions and so on…three steps backwards. I tried every permutation and yet I cannot not prevail because the creators have cheated the players. Shame on you. Addendum: still a crap game with no improvement after all these years.

    First time out I played the easy mode as a "tutorial" , way to easy so next time out i stepped it up a notch. Wow, talk about unbalanced difficulty levels. You either starve to death within a few rounds, or you scavenge for scraps to keep people fed and everyone gets injured and the dead take over the city because you have no one to guard the fort. Not a bad concept, just badly implemented. Unistalled, guess im out $3.

    Awful game I only played for a few minutes. I want a refund. It has been less than 48 hours and scum bag Google isn't listing a refund option. Refund me or I am reporting credit card fraud.

    I remember this game when it was on flash. Great game then, great game now. Won't find another game like it. Holds up pretty well. Winter basically Thanos snaps your community if you got all the squares tho.

  • Awesome game. Nov 15, 2015

    By Someuid
    This is awesome. Easy to pick up and play a few turns, then a few more, then just a few more. Really good music. Doesn't kill your battery. And best of all - zero ads and zero 'buy this resource to get anywhere.' You just pay for the game and go have fun. No blood sucking corporate types trying to squeeze $$$ out of you every month. Looking forward to trying Rebuild 3.

    This is a fun game to pick up for a couple of hours. Little replayability but it's still there. Genuinely a fun game, managing resources and stuff. I'd highly recommend playing or at least looking into the online version of Rebuild 1 first, as this is mostly the same with some slight tweaks. I wish they kept all of the endings from the online version though.

    very fun! figuring out survivor skills can be tedious at times especially when you have very highly leveled survivors that you've carried over to another city. biggest issue for me is a lack of google play achievements. i really love 100% completion as it gives me a reason to keep playing past winning the game at superhard. this didnt have achievements so my gametime was kind of short. if this wasn't such a niche issue for most people it would've affected my rating more.

    Fun to play, I used to play this back when I was a kid on the computer. However, the difficulties are a bit wonky. Everything up to and including challenging is super easy, but once you pick "seriously hard", you cant get a leg up. Constant raids, no food, everyone dies randomly despite there being no risk of it. Makes the game less entertaining and more just "Alright, im done, whatever"

  • Meh... Jun 12, 2016

    By Captainbambles
    This game gets quite repetitive and I got bored rather quickly. There is not any building to the game, as buildings are already placed and just need to be clears of zombies and reclaimed. I do like that you only pay one time (no in-app purchases) and even though certain actions take multiple "days" to complete, you are in control of how long the days are.

    99% of survivors are non-white and the continuous use of their terms (example: "those mysoginists!") Aside from that, it's just not that fun. Farming is so bad there is no difference from placing a survivor with a scavenging of 6 from one with 0 even on "a big farm".
