Door Kickers is an innovative real-time strategy game that puts you in charge of a SWAT team and lets you command them during a tactical intervention. “I don’t have to draw a line in the sand. I already have one. It’s thin. It’s blue. It’s mine and if you cross it, I will protect it.” Anonymous Author Become the commander of an elite anti-terrorist squad and lead them on the most dangerous missions. Remember you are the good guy, but sometimes it's better to pull the trigger and go home on your own than to be carried. Yours and your men’ssquad life are the most important. Analyze the situation, plan team routes, choose equipment, breach points and coordinate multiple troopers to reach the hostage room before the bad guys get to press that trigger. It may sound daunting and like real world CQB combat. But most levels can be completed in minutes and on the fly - improvisation works. Achieving the perfect planning, getting the mission done with no false steps, that’s a skill hard to master. FEATURES: - 2D, Top Down for optimal tactical analysis - Real-time with combat pause - No turns, no hexes, no action points or awkward interfaces - Realistic but action-packed - Non-linear levels - Unlimited gameplay via mission generator - Freeform tactics - improvise, adapt, overcome - Prepare your squad, chose equipment and weapon - 5 trooper classes

Door Kickers Critic Reviews

It’s a tough game, particularly in the later stages, and if you’ve not got the patience for it, then it’s not going to be the game for you. To start off, you can select individual stages, starting with relatively easy scenarios and building significantly in difficulty from there. Once you’ve reached a certain level, you can start tackling ‘campaigns’, which are just several levels grouped together. There’s no overarching plot to bind the levels together, which is a shame, but not a deal-breaker. Finally, you can also generate random levels by selecting various parameters, such as size, number of enemies, and so on. There’s a lot to be getting on with, and if you’re a fan of tactical games, this is definitely one to watch out for.

Door Kickers is a complex game made for the strategic thinker. There's a lot of content to sink your teeth into, providing almost endless hours of S.W.A.T. combat. It could use better tutorials, and the convoluted controls may put some players off at first, but there's a lot to uncover here for fans of tactical shooters.
