After 150 years underground following a nuclear disaster, it's time to return to the surface in "Endzone - A World Apart."

In survival and city-building game Endzone – A World Apart, you have to lead people through such challenges and build a new society in a post-apocalyptic world.

The scene: in an alternate 2021, terrorists blow up nuclear power plants across the globe, plunging the world into chaos. The few survivors manage to escape into underground shelters known as “Endzones”. After 150 years, it’s time to return to the surface.

Not surprisingly, everything is in ruins. The ground is contaminated with radiation. Droughts, toxic rain, sandstorms and raiders are constant threats. It’s up to you to decide how your new civilisation will develop.

As the leader in this hostile environment, you have coordinate your people to collect food and resources, and build a settlement with dozens of different buildings.

The settlers can perform various tasks and occupations, as well as go to school or travel on expeditions to distant areas. 

The game world is divided into cells, each with their own levels of humidity and radiation. The weather is unpredictable, and radioactive rain and drought threaten the harvest, so survival is by no means guaranteed.

The survival strategy game from Gentlymad Studios looks good and plays well. It’s perfect for fans of city builder titles, but if you’re looking for excitement, despite the premise, you won’t find much here. If you enjoy managing other people’s lives, though, this might be just the game for you.
