Atom Zombie Smasher is a simple, yet fun, game about zombies and controlling flow. In it's own way it is very much a simple puzzler.
The game is divided into two areas. First there is the overworld map where land is divided into provinces for you to contest over with the zombie menace. Here you choose which area to send your mercenaries to infected provinces of varying difficulty (number of infected present) and, depending on the game settings you chose, choosing which mercenaries to send. Second is the battle map itself. Here you get to place where your rescue chopper will initally land and draw survivors towards it as well as other mercenaries in building around the map (artillery, snipers, etc) or deployed in the streets (foot soldiers, mines, dynamite, barricades, etc).
Mercenaries are all designed to help you control flow and rescue survivors and scientists from the infected zones. Helicopter for rescue, artillery, foot soldiers, snipers, barricades, mines and dynamite are all examples of some of the mercs you get to use. As you attain kills or successful rescue numbers each merc group will level up and be upgradeable. This generally comes down to faster movement, rate of fire, deployment or reduced loading times.
As the game progresses and you rescue more scientists you gain control of the 'Llama Cannon" which allows for orbital bombardment of a zone every few provinces.
All in all the game is fun and can be addictive depending on your tastes.
Pick this up in a sale and you certainly won't regret it!
