About the game

2 Flares 2 Flares ×

The Last Stand: Dead Zone is the fourth installment in the The Last Stand series. It was announced on January 16, 2012 via Con Artist Games’ Twitter feed and Facebook page.The Early Access Beta was released on Facebook on February 21, 2012 and is only open to those who have liked The Last Stand’s Facebook page. It was also released on Armor Games on August 14, 2012 and Kongregate on December 18, 2012, both of which require the user to create a free account to play the game.

Personally I found this game when it just entered the early beta, I don’t play it anymore but I still would recommend it to all who love apocalypse/zombie games. Best thing about it.. its free! So try it out!

What's it all about

Your survivors have different roles, Datu for example is a Engineer ;)

Your survivors have different roles, Datu for example is a Engineer ;)

Initially taking on the role of a lone survivor, players must build up their shelter, ensure it remains stocked with food, water and building resources, defend it from zombie attacks, attract new survivors and scavenge for additional materials. The game unfolds from an isometric perspective in real time, using realistic, gritty 3D visuals rather than the cartoonish aesthetic seen on many other Facebook titles.

When defending the base from zombies or exploring new locations, players take direct control of the survivors they have assigned to undertake the mission. Survivors will automatically defend themselves and attack zombies that enter the range of their weapon, meaning that micromanagement only becomes necessary if it looks like an individual survivor is going to get into trouble. Defending the base is a simple matter of killing all incoming zombies, while exploring locations gives players a time limit to scavenge as many supplies as possible from containers in the area while holding off the undead hordes.

The game largely focuses on the player’s own team of survivors, though it’s also possible to visit other players’ compounds and help out with tasks that need completing. Later, it also becomes possible to attack rival survivors, though low-level players are protected from attack for a period of six days or until they attack someone first. The game monetizes through its hard currency fuel, which may be used to purchase premium items as well as speed up time-consuming processes. Premium items range from more effective weaponry to further protection against attack from rival players. Players aren’t obliged to purchase fuel as it is possible to scavenge it from missions.

Features

You can defend your compound with walls, barbed wire, towers, traps etc.

You can defend your compound with walls, barbed wire, towers, traps etc.

Compound
The Compound is the player’s base of operations in the Dead Zone and the home of all the survivors in their group. It is also where all the structures necessary to sustain the survivors are built and placed.

  

PvP
Players’ compounds may be raided by other players, unless the player is online or under protection. The raiding group can steal resources from the compound’s storage and production buildings, but must also face any survivors present there, which will be controlled by the AI.  
Resources
Resources must be collected in order to construct and upgrade buildings, as well as to sustain the player’s survivors. There are currently 6 regular resource types (Wood, Metal, Cloth, Food, Water and Ammunition) and 1 premium resource (Fuel, which can be purchased with real money), all of which can be scavenged during missions, obtained through recycling or collected from their respective drop-off points.  

Crafting
Crafting allows the player to create and/or upgrade items once specific crafting benches have been constructed. Schematics, a small amount of Fuel and the appropriate components and/or resources are required in order to craft items, while only Fuel is required for upgrading.  

Suppression and Cover
Survivors can take cover behind objects in order to avoid being struck by gunfire and can fire upon any opponents in range. However, whilst immune to damage when in cover, popping out to fire at opponents exposes them to return fire and a sufficient volume of fire on their position would suppress them, preventing them from returning fire.

  

Survivors can be trained and use different types of weapons and gear

Recycling
All items can be recycled for resources. Structures can also be dismantled, which works in the same way. Every item and structure provides a set amounts of either, depending on the specific type. Note that in order to recycle multiple items at once, the player must build the Recycler.  

Tasks and Achievements
Tasks provide objectives for the player to accomplish and provide XP and occasionally items when completed, much like Quests in TLS:UC. Achievements are nearly identical to their TLS:UC incarnation.  

Trading
Trading allows players to trade for items they may want or need with other players. Anything can be traded, except for Fuel. Trading requires the Communication system to be set up, which requires a Radio Receiver and Radio Tower.  
Weapon Attachments and Conditions
Weapon Attachments and Conditions affect the various statistics possessed by weapons. It has been reworked from its TLS:UC incarnation, the details of which are covered in the article.  

Books
Books can be used to modify various things such as XP gain, scavenging speed, zombie health, etc. It has been reworked from its TLS:UC incarnation, the details of which are covered in the article.  

Bounty Office
The Bounty Office is a feature where players can spend Fuel to put out a bounty on a player who raided them for other players to hunt down. Successfully claiming a bounty grants the bounty hunter a large amount of the Fuel spent on the bounty. 

Conclusion

Like I said before I haven’t been playing the game anymore but I can assure you its highly addictive and in the meanwhile more and more features were added. The game graphics really look awesome for a game thats on Facebook. Also a good thing is that you can actually play the game in a nice way without paying money for the ingame currency, fuel. So is there anything bad about the game? Well the sound of some of the guns don’t really sound to good, but thats just a minor issue. When I played this game back about a year ago there weren’t to many missions and no storyline. But now in March 2013 there are a shitload of new missions, different type of area’s and stuff to do, but there still ain’t no storyline. I hope the developers will continue develop the game and evently make a stand alone game of it with a storyline, I would be more than happy to pay for it!

The Last Stand: Dead Zone 7.3

I've been playing LS: Dead Zone since early beta and I heartily agree with this review. DZ continues to be enjoyable even though I'm playing what is currently the end game. I applaud ConArtist for making a FB game that puts gameplay ahead of monetization, which, in my experience, is very rare.

Plusses
  • Its FREE!!!
  • Ingame purchases are not really needed!
  • Way better then The Walking Dead Facebook game
Minors
  • I agree, lacks Storyline..
  • Waiting for my survivors to get home :D

The Last Stand: Dead Zone 7.5

This Game is surprisingly playable considering it falls squarely in the freemium category, but don't let that putt you off, the Game is very good, too good in fact for it do languish in Facebook hell (also on Armour Games and Kongregate).

There is always something to do to keep your interest and to keep you entertained and is the best balanced freemium title I have played to date, and as it is still being actively improved and expanded.

This Game screams for a native android and iOS release where with some slight rebalancing it could become a premium or benchmark game.

Plusses
  • No Paywall
  • Loads to do
  • Loot!!
Minors
  • Premium Currency
  • I suspect it becomes pay to win (PvP) towards the end game
  • Some minor technical issues with new locations added and lag issues when the screen gets busy.

Luch贸 siempre a favor de la paz y encabez贸 un movimiento que consigui贸 la independencia de su pa铆s de manera pac铆fica, sin utilizar las armas. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi naci贸 en Porbandar, en la India, en el a帽o de 1869. Era un ni帽o noble y vest铆a de manera elegante. Divid铆a su tiempo entre la escuela y la casa, su vida transcurr铆a apacible excepto por los fantasmas. El peque帽o les tem铆a tanto que, con el fin de ahuyentarlos, recitaba cada noche con fervor unos himnos de la religi贸n hindu铆sta.Desde que cumpli贸 siete a帽os de edad, sus padres planearon su boda: Mohandas se casar铆a con una ni帽a de familia noble. Esto debido a que en la cultura hind煤 as铆 se acostumbraba. As铆, a los trece tuvo que casase con Kasturbai Makanji quien result贸 ser una esposa solidaria y fiel. Cuatro a帽os despu茅s, tuvieron su primer hijo. A los 17 a帽os viaj贸 a Inglaterra para estudiar la carrera de abogado. No le fue dif铆cil adaptarse a la vida de aquel pa铆s, aprendi贸 el idioma y lleg贸 a adaptarse a algunas de sus costumbres, sin embargo, ten铆a un problema: En un lugar donde la mayor铆a de la comida tiene carne, era muy dif铆cil ser vegetariano.Por otra parte, en este pa铆s, unos te贸logos le pidieron que leyera un texto sagrado hind煤, llamado el Bhagavad-Gita en su lengua original. Una de las ideas de esta lectura marcar铆a para siempre su manera de actuar: 鈥淓l hombre se deja llevar por la atracci贸n que siente hacia las cosas materiales y al no poder renunciar a sus deseos, pierde su esp铆ritu y su propio ser鈥? j cheap air jordans

Seton fans cheer during the D2 Championship game against Maricopa. Hardiman/Wrangler News] cheap jordans Necessity is the mother of invention. Does that proverb also apply to the use of a waffle iron? It would seem so.I am not a fan of uni-taskers, and for years I viewed the waffle iron as just that: a piece of equipment that might get used two or three times a year. But now we have been shown the light. In these days of Instagram and Pinterest, there is a new trend brewing. A waffle iron is necessary for a waffle, but a waffle is not necessary for a waffle iron. It can make oh-so-much more.The new waffling movement goes far beyond making a grilled cheese sandwich on a George Foreman grill. A few recipes now being waffled include cinnamon buns, omelets, and hash browns. However don锟絫 limit waffling to breakfast items. Brownies, quesadillas, bacon, burgers, even pizzas are being cooked like waffles.Waffled Zucchini Fritters with Tomato RelishIngredients:Nonstick cooking spray6 medium-sized zucchiniKosher salt4-5 spring onions, white and green parts thinly sliced1/4 cup fresh herbs, minced (such as dill, basil, mint, parsley, and thyme)2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced2 eggs1 cup milk2/3 cup yellow cornmeal1/3 cup all-purpose flour3 tablespoons baking powder1 tablespoon mustard powder1 tablespoon smoked paprikaFreshly ground black pepper, to tasteTomato Relish (recipe follows)Preheat a waffle iron. When hot, spray with nonstick cooking spray.Use a cheese grater to shred the zucchini into a large bowl. Sprinkle generously with kosher salt, toss well to incorporate, and transfer to a colander. Place the colander over the bowl and set aside for 10-15 minutes to draw out moisture. Squeeze the excess moisture from the zucchini, discard the water in the bottom of the bowl, and return the squash to the bowl.Add onions, herbs, garlic, eggs, milk, and a pinch or two of kosher salt to the zucchini and whisk well. Add cornmeal, flour, baking powder, and seasonings. Stir to combine.Spritz the waffle iron again. Make a test fritter: drop a small amount of batter into the waffle iron and cook until brown around the edges. Taste this fritter and adjust salt, pepper, and mustard powder as needed.Once the batter has been perfected and approved, cook fritters in batches, taking care to spray the waffle iron between each batch. Serve with tomato relish.Tomato RelishIngredients:3 tomatoes, seeded and diced1 onion, peeled and diced1 clove garlic, peeled and minced1/2 cup granulated sugar1/2 cup cider vinegarPlace all ingredients in a small sauce pan. Cook over low heat until reduced and syrupy. Season with salt and pepper. Let cool.Page 2 of 2 - Waffled Basil Pesto and Roasted Tomato Caprese PaniniIngredients:2 ripe tomatoes, such as heirloom or beefsteak, seeded and slicedOlive oilNonstick cooking spray6 slices sandwich breadBasil Pesto (recipe follows)1 (8-ounce) ball fresh mozzarella cheese, slicedMayonnaise, about 1/4 cupPreheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a silpat liner or parchment paper.Spread the tomato slices onto the pan; drizzle with olive oil, and season with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Roast until slightly shriveled and beginning to brown, about 10 minutes. Remove from the over and set aside.Preheat a waffle iron. When hot, spray with nonstick cooking spray.Assemble 3 whole sandwiches by spreading 1 slice of bread with pesto. Top with a third of the tomato slices and a third of the mozzarella. Top with another slice of bread that has been spread with pesto. Press with your hands to squish the sandwich together. Now spread a very thin layer of mayonnaise on outside of both slices of bread. Repeat with remaining sandwiches.Place in the waffle iron and press until the cheese has melted. Cut each sandwich in half diagonally and serve immediately.Basil PestoIngredients:2 cloves garlic, peeled2 cups packed fresh basil leaves1/2 cup pine nuts, toasted2/3 cup olive oil1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, freshly gratedLemon juice, to tasteIn the bowl of a food processor while the machine is running, drop the garlic cloves in one at a time, allowing each clove to be chopped before adding the next.Add basil and pine nuts, and pulse until chopped.While the processor is on, drizzle in olive oil and process until smooth.Add Parmesan cheese, pulse 2-3 times, and season to taste with kosher salt, freshly ground black pepper, and lemon juice.Spartanburg (S.C.)
