At its core, Space Pirates and Zombies is an action based, skill oriented, top down space combat game. It’s similar to the ones we knew and loved in years past, but now using full physics simulation and modern graphics for those oh so pretty explosions. But as you dig deeper, SPAZ becomes much more.
Instead of flying a single ship, you are in charge of an ever growing and evolving fleet, unlocking the rich tactical elements of SPAZ, all accessed at the touch of a button. Issue orders, change ships, apply fleet AI settings, all on the fly. At any moment the battle can change, and the Tactics Panel gives you the tools to make the battle turn in your favor.
As a layer on top of the action and tactics, we have a detailed technology and levelup system akin to what you would expect from an RPG. Learn to build new ships by destroying your enemies. Explore the galaxy to find components, use your hard earned research points to unlock their potential, and then customize every aspect of your new fleet.
Finally, there is the universe in which all this strife and adventure takes place. SPAZ features a persistent randomly generated Galaxy populated with story elements, factions, enemies, missions, items, to provide you with a unique experience each time you play. While you are struggling to survive, uncover the secret of an ever expanding Zombie infestation that spreads by establishing its own real time multi-tiered ecosystem.
Key features:
  • 33 ships to research, build, outfit and pilot.
  • 70 unique components to discover and customize your fleet’s performance.
  • Totally physics based combat system.
  • Fight Zombie infestations, battling a full zombie ecosystem comprising four stages of un-life.
  • Explore a persistent randomly generated galaxy containing hundreds of star systems.
  • Freedom to explore the galaxy and take on challenges at your own pace.
  • Aid, flee, or exploit the warring factions in each star system.
  • The unique event system lets the player change the balance of power in any star system
  • Carefully spend your hard earned research points on hundreds of upgrades across 15 categories.

Space Pirates and Zombies reviews and comments

"How well the game is brought!" said a good friend of mine. Hours and hours of fun await you in this very very very complete craft game... Wherever your strategy is for completing the quests and the game, you will be supported by a wide range of skills where you can develop the technologies you feel most comfortable with. Forga and destroy alliances with the factions you will find throughout the game, a huge hangar with many types of ships and infinite possibilities of armament and equipment, a spectacular physics and very achieved space. Little more to say... Oh, yes! Everything improves with Zombies...

Under that totally indie and random game appearance, hides a very interesting proposal that catches you and you like a fool. Let'S Say You have a universe that you can create, you start in a system and you make misioncitas with which you earn money, you improve the ship, increase your fleet, upgrades the weapons... You go to a higher level system, bigger enemies, better ships, better weapons... You going to catch it? And so again and again, but you itch like hell to have the best weapons the best ship and the best crew that spend the hours and you're still there giving it like a fool. If you mola FTL (faster than light) with this game you have a great fun. And for the Q1 of the 2015 comes the 2 with 3D graphics [Or ' ´ Or], that can be insane. For the €1.90 that has cost me a 9/10 and PQ is not in Spanish but gave the 10.

Well, although the game can really be a bit repetitive and frustrating for a lot of people coming to a certain point, all of that falls short considering the gameplay and the story of the game, which is what mostly moves one to remain a space pirate. The truth is that one really forgets what it has to do to continue to shoot, buying (stealing) planes, recruiting (kidnapping) crew and getting data to level up (also highlight that RPG character of the game that gives many hours of game) until one sees that green cursor that reminds you that there is also a great story to fulfill, because... Besides pirate, you are prospector and your mission is to go to the center of the galaxy to... Get more minerals... After... Almost 20 hours of play I remembered "shouldn't there also be zombies in the game?" and when they appear, they do it in the best way and in the best time that could have been used for the game. In Short, the game has a very strong history, which includes all the actions you do, but still have a complete freedom that allows you to do whatever you want, the time you want before continuing with the main line, a great soundtrack, which although I think That could give more, is very well made and positioned for the game. Otherwise, you just have to take a look, the physics and the style of play is great. Highly recommended, it will give you days of fun exploiting things and exploring the galaxy.
