Rebuild 3: Gangs of Deadsville Gameplay Review

I'm playing Rebuild 3: Gangs of Deadsville, a post-apocalyptic city building game by Northway Games.

The story mode moves through a series of cities where buildings must be reclaimed from the zombie horde; a quick play mode is also available. The game’s tiny resolution is more appropriate for mobile devices, and while overlays are available for resource and zombie levels, the lack of tool-tips on the map makes quick building identification impossible. Each survivor can be assigned one task at a time: guard, build, scout, kill zombies, scavenge for resources, reclaim territory that is zombie free, trade or attack other factions, recruit new members, research new technologies, farm or fish, and craft items. Each of the game’s five classes (soldier, scavenger, engineer, builder, and leader) specialize in different areas; weapons and items can increase stats in the five attributes. Food is an important resource that is consumed each turn; other resources are utilized for various tasks. Random events and zombie attacks round out the game. Overall, Rebuild 3: Gangs of Deadsville is a very solid casual themed city builder.
