Zombo Buster Rising is a fun Tower Defense game in which the world gets overflown with zombies and you’re trying to stay alive till help arrives. You stand at the top of a building and will shoot down zombies that are coming for the building. Very soon there will be more types of zombies with special abilities, but you’ll also get help from some people and will be able to upgrade your own skills as well as those of the teammates who auto-attack.
I suck at tower defense games, which I hate because I enjoy the genre but I just suck at it and I have no clue why. However, I was able to unlock all the achievements in Zombo Buster Rising because you can farm earlier levels to buy upgrades. Or sometimes it makes more sense to just keep going as long as you completed a level because in later levels the amount of money earned increases so much.
For the achievements you have to kill X amount of zombies, your teammates have to kill X amount, you have to get all diamonds in every level (but you can go back to get them), get all the upgrades, use the 3 skills you’ll unlock while playing and have to beat the final boss without losing health. Gladly as long as you’re fully upgraded this isn’t that bad. You can also buy items in the shop to help you out even more. In case you ever need money and are quite far in the game, My favorite level to grind money was level 28, because it doesn’t have flying enemies and it gives quite a lot of money. I’m very happy that the developers made a game that is not too long and can be enjoyed by everybody. And they get bonus points in my book because the achievements on Steam have counters, so you can check out your progress and see how close you’re to unlocking a specific achievement.
