FlyPenguin has revealed that its survival tower defense game Barricadez ReVisited will launch on Switch this week with a September 30 release date. The game challenges players to explore underground for resources and upgrades so that they can fortify their base with powerful traps and defenses. To see the game in action, check out this trailer, and then read on for a thorough description of the game.
Barricadez is a side-scrolling tower defense game that combines survival mechanics such as resource gathering, crafting and upgrading with the aim of protecting the defenseless cradle against endless hordes of zombie-like creatures. Explore the underground world for resources to exploit, valuable blueprints and upgrades to acquire, going deeper and deeper for more rare resources. Prepare your traps and barricades during the day to hold out until dawn against the endless hordes of the zombie-like creatures through the night. Take advantage of the autocrafting system to automate crafting supplies and ammunition for your traps.
Arrange your base to tackle the variety of zombies and mutants, all of whom require a different approach to deal with. Killing the creatures gives you engrams, a resource that allows you to upgrade your skills and traps. Utilize the rotary and vertical excavators as extra sources of resource gathering, while drones allow you to automate the extraction of those materials. The creatures of the night will stop at nothing to destroy everything, it’s up to you to build a strong base to protect the last beacon of hope of humanity.
