Endzone: A World Apart is an economic strategy set in a post-apocalyptic vision of the future. The game belongs to the city builder genre and was developed by the German studio Gentlymad, known for the unique puzzle game In Between and the third installment of the Pizza Connection series.
After terrorists blew up nuclear reactors around the world in 2021, human civilisation fell apart. Only a few survived, those who managed to reach the underground Endzone shelters. Only after 150 years did mankind dare to come to the surface changed by the nuclear disaster. Players take on the role of the survivors' leader, and their task is to create a well-functioning settlement.
Endzone: A World Apart does not differ too much from the formula used in other city builders. So we create a base using over 30 available buildings and try to satisfy the most important needs of the residents. In the meantime, we must ensure a steady supply of resources for needed by the settlement, as well as the assignment of tasks and responsibilities to our people. With time, we also begin to send expeditions into the unexplored corners of the post-apocalyptic world in search of valuable artifacts, and at any time we may be forced to make decisions that will decide about the life or death of settlers.
However, the world after a nuclear disaster is much less friendly than typical metropolis from SimCity or Cities: Skylines. Our settlement is threatened by rapid weather changes: sudden droughts, sandstorms, poisonous rains, etc. Moreover, even after 150 years, the radiation levels remain high, making it difficult to cultivate the soil. Each field has its own values for radioactive contamination and moisture, which change as a result of precipitation, among other things. In this situation, efficient planning (including amassing of food stocks) is crucial, but also is a little bit of luck.
Endzone: A World Apart focuses on single-player mode, without offering any form of multiplayer gameplay.
Endzone: A World Apart uses isometric view and decent three-dimensional visuals.
