'BarricadeZ' Comes To Nintendo Switch At The Same Time As PC Edition

BarricadeZ is a 2D tower defense game with survival elements, set in a post-apocalyptic world in the near future.

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.

As an all-purpose care robot, it is tasked to you to protect the cradle from these hostile creatures that are hellbent on destroying everything, including the child in the cradle.

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. 

Currently available through Steam Early Access, Barricadez is coming to Nintendo Switch and PC (Steam) on September 30, 2021 at €15.99/$18.99. 

Key Features

  • Build and design the most effective defensive fortifications to protect the last child of humanity.
  • Utilize a wide array of traps to defeat the encroaching monsters by arranging the traps along a path that you force the monsters to follow.
