A post apocalyptical management game.

Not so far ago I said that you can find a zombie game in every genre, but no one thought about classical management games. In short, Rebuild is an awesome reinterpretation of the classic Sim City with a few adaptations.

Cities are created randomly, so replayability is assured. You start around the police station (perhaps in a wink to Resident Evil) and as you meet new survivors, you can expand your fence to make room for farms and supplies. By the way, you have to re-discover technology, fight zombies off, save new survivors and so on. Graphics and animations are simpler than other management games we are used to, but they do their work and are clear and useful. Anyway, they give the game a sensation of being too slow, when it indeed is a slow game.

Much as its Sim counterpart, you have to take care of your fellow survivors. They can starve, they can get insane or they can die from bitten throats and guts or worse.

Great game. It doesn't matter if you are more into zombies or management, this game is great. Although it can be improved in nearly every aspect, it's true that it's a great game overall. At this moment there isn't a free or demo version, but the fact of paying less than a dollar for it serves to avoid ads and in-app purchases. You know, you buy the game, you get the whole game and all the updates from now on.
