Post apocalyptic strategy game, fun and simple

KKND might not have been much back in the day, when it first came out, in the sense in which some just want their games to be the best out there, the most feature full, the most audacious and smart. Nope, this game was a good RTS but one that never tried too hard. But you know what the advantage of these games actually is?! Well, when some portion o it is good, when some map is more interesting, or when the enemy makes a cool move, you are going to notice! Yes, KKND is not brilliant, is graphically a rather generic but alright top down 2D game, but, it works, and it does so without being overly pretentious, which is why you got to love it, at least today. So, when your nth skirmish in Brood War is no longer bringing you any joy, a few missions in this one might actually feel more refreshing and energizing. So try it, you'll like it, especially if you love Hogs of War or other simple, straightforward strategies. It's also a relatively long game, which means that you can keep it installed and play it when you have a breather, now and then, as a bit ofa more serious time waster.

An average sci fi strategy game

KKnD, or Krush, Kill 'n' Destroy is the first of three real-time strategy games in the KKnD series and it takes place in a post-apocalyptic setting, where two factions are fighting for control over the few natural resources left. Each faction has its own campaign consisting of 15 missions each, and there is also a multiplayer mode which allows up to 6 people to play via LAN or modem/serial connection. By all means, the game is interesting and fun to play, but doesn't bring much innovation to the world of strategy gaming. Probably the best and only really good feature in this game is it's difficulty. This is a challenging game fit for the most fierce of strategy players. You have to be really careful about resource management and building and with a little effort, your can make your units into very effective killing machines. The game is designed very well, but I might object on the slowness of the game and especially map scrolling, which may put your excitement significantly. The graphics quality is on par with most games from this era, but not better than them. Overall, we get a good strategy game that is fun and very challenging, but otherwise quite average. Still, if you like the game, go ahead and play the game's sequels, KKND 2 and KKND Xtreme.
