SWAT and Zombies is a really simple tower defense in which you have to use a SWAT team to fight all the zombies that are trying to get to the other side of the street.
SWAT and Zs lands on our devices with a clear intention of bringing some innovation into defense games. It was a hard task, but result has been quite acceptable. First at all, you will realize that you have very few slots to place your SWAT towers (namely SWAT officers indeed), so the most important part of your strategy will be to wisely choose which agents will participate and where they will be placed. SWAT agents vary from ol’school agents wielding a nightstick to elite forces armed with machine guns.
When one of your SWAT towers runs out of ammo, you have to tap on it to reload. In addition, you can happily place towers here and there, there’s a cooldown time and, of course, a cost in coins. There’s only one path your enemies can take, this is, from right to left, so you don’t have to look for crossroads as you used to do in other defense games. Other agents need special actions, as the sniper SWAT, so you can’t simply place your towers and stand waiting to see how it all settles.
Cartoon-like graphics are nice, but sounds effects are even better. This game has an unexpected high playability, even for non-tower defense gamers. Given its simpleness, it may become quite deep, strategically speaking. The amount of different zombie enemies helps a lot in this regard.
The gameplay in SWAT and Zombies is similar to that in Plant Vs Zombies, but simpler. Instead of defending against the attacking zombies in several lanes, you just have to defend one. Place SWAT members in the available spots and watch how they get rid of the zombies.
There are many SWAT teams that you can use. The most basic have handguns and sticks. The first is the basic distance unit, while the second is essential to stop zombies from advancing too fast. Naturally, there are other types of weapons, too: machine-guns, shotguns, assault riffles, etc.
SWAT and Zombies is a fun tower defense that offers a simple yet addictive gameplay with good graphics. Nothing stands out in particular, but it’s still a good game.
