Door Kickers is now available on Linux!

Door Kickers is an innovative Real-Time Tactics game that puts you in charge of a SWAT team. We broke the news about it coming to you last month here.

I had a chance to test it before the Linux version went out (thank you developers!) and fell in love with it, good graphics mixed with interesting gameplay. It actually reminded me of Frozen Synapse a little bit.

Analyze the situation, plan team routes, choose equipment and breach points and coordinate multiple troopers to reach the hostage room before the bad guys get to press that trigger.

It may sound daunting, and like real world CQB combat, it sure is. But most levels can be completed in minutes and on the fly improvisation works. Achieving the perfect planning, getting the mission done with no false steps, that’s a skill harder to master.


Currently sold for $7.99 so actually quite cheap and it gets you access to the Alpha right now as well!

Quick feature list:

  • 2D, top down graphics

  • Real Time with Free Pause

  • No DRM

  • PC oriented (Windows/Mac/Linux), with handhelds as later developments

  • Single Player (but MP might come later)

  • No turns, no hexes, no action points or awkward interfaces

  • Non-linear levels, freeform gameplay

  • Mission editor and modability

  • Unlimited gameplay via mission and campaign generators

You can get the demo here, yes that's right another developer giving out a Demo, still strikes me as odd/annoying when developers don't have any sort of try before you buy.
