It's been a few years since the zombpocalypse turned the world's cities into graveyards and sent the few survivors into hiding. Now you must gather them up and restore civilization to a ruined city, one building at a time.

Rebuild 3 is a strategy sim game with a good helping of narrative and dark humor. It's a thoughtful game that'll make you fond of your survivors before you send them to their deaths for the greater good. As you expand your fort to new buildings, you'll decide between farms or fortifications, housing or hospitals, and make tough decisions to fend off raiders, illness, starvation, and madness. And the dead are still out there wandering the streets, hungrier than ever.

Rebuild 3: Gangs of Deadsville is the third of my Rebuild series, and the first one available on Steam. It's a totally new, much bigger game than the first two.Features

Review of Rebuild 3: Gangs of Deadsville Rebuild 3 is the latest Installment In a Zombie strategy City building game and available for the first time as a desktop Version. Originally, the "Rebuild" Parts were only available as a Browser version, but with Rebuild 3 there is also the Possibility to get the other two Parts as a Desktop Version with the Special Edition. Rebuild is a Turn-based Build-up strategy game that involves reclaiming, looting, recruiting New Survivors, fighting zombies and making Krief or Peace with other Gangs with at the Beginning of a Handful of survivors. Each Round is assigned a Task to a Survivor (scouts, looting, fighting, taking Land, researching, recruiting, farm work, cutting wood, fishing, building, Upgrades ...) Every Survivor has a special Ability that he is good at and if you give him a task, he also slowly levelt with it. However, any Survivor can only level in one Category. The Player himself can level any Category. There are also items that can be equipped to improve stats. There are also several Cities here and in each other City you unlock more Research and get other events and other Tasks. PRO * s beautiful Colorful Gameplay accompanying storyline and Event Dialogues Many Setting options Steam Workshop super variety for Intermediate also available AS a Mobile phone version CONTRA * * only in English, since a lot of texts you should also use the funny part Be powerful in the English Language as well. But it can also be played well with poor English Skills-then you just skip the Lyrics All in all it is a great Game for In Between, I can only recommend to anyone who likes something like that. For me, therefore, there is 9/10

I took the first one that immediately conquered me then I took that and it is better, say more complete. We see the avatars of the perso on the map... difficult to explain the benefits but it is more detailed than the first and especially in terms of information about the characters and interactions. There are 2 modes: campaign and fast game. The only flaw, no French, even knowing English well, I have trouble understanding many words but it does not bother to advance in the game so go!

This pile of crap, some ppl call a game is extremely low on content and mechanics. It feels like you're playing some kind of arcade tetris simulator with a pause and play button. Barely got any rpg or strategy except these failed character builds and hordes of zombies randomly spawning out of nowhere just outside your base attacking almost every day. This is a pure downgrade to the earlier games of rebuild. And all them bugs...... There are so many points that i would like to have added but there is simply to many. And i never want to waste another second on this bs. A solid 0/5

It's an okay game, a few more features than rebuild 1 and 2, like factions, trading and upgrades. When you have rebuild a few cities, the fun to play this game decreases. The same survivors and their story, the same quests, the same factions, the same goal. Although the description says you can fill two novels with the amount of text in this game is half a truth, cause the text is always the same. 1 novel of unique text and the second novel is just a copy of the first. The only thing what keeps me playing this game is the when i finishend this game i would delete it from my iPad. Not worth 5 bucks, but maybe 1 or 2 bucks

A strategy game where you rebuild town after town after the zombie apocalypse. Each town differ in size, layout and available resources. Combined various stories they all poses different challenges, although gameplay in itself is tad repetitive. You'll need to manage resources, survivor's happiness and time. The zombies are relentless and you will encounter other factions of friendly, or not so friendly, survivors. There's an element of RPG in the game as your survivors develop skills and traits over time. Weapons, tools and items can be scavenged, or traded for, which enhances the survivors skills. A limited number of survivors and items can be brought with you to the next town up.
