Against All Squads: Recruits Demo

The alpha version of UDK-powered top-down kill 'em up Recruits showed promise, so news of an improved two level demo is most welcome. There's a superficial similarity to Cannon Fodder, particularly in relation to how easy it is to pop an enemy's guts with a well-placed shot and the fact that your own squaddies become perma-dead if they fall in combat. The demo includes two missions, one of which caters for the stealthier soldier, although if that approach fails, it's still possible to succeed. There's an interesting approach to victory and failure throughout - quitting a mission abandons the soldiers who are in the field, unless they are at an evacuation point. Download at the links listed on the right.

Purchasing Recruits now provides the current build and future versions up to completion. It'll set you back £3.29 on Desura and is also gunning for a Steam Greenlight release.

Here are some chickens.
