Gameplay on Door Kickers is as easy to learn as it is hard to master. Even though the game is played in real time, you can use pause at any moment, from here you'll be able to (in fact you'll have to) give orders to your units.
By simply dragging the mouse in one direction you’ll make a unit move and right clicking on its route you'll be able to indicate certain actions to be carried out. Shooting, however, will be done automatically whenever an enemy is in the line of vision.
Once pause is taken off, all of your units will move in the directions you've indicated and carry out the orders you’ve established. If all goes well, you might be able to kill off a suspect. If all goes bad...well, you'll have to start all over again.
This alpha/lite version of the game includes a good number of individual missions in which you'll have to enter several different locations in order to finish off the resistance. The paid version of the game even offers a story mode.
Door Kickers is a game that perfectly combines strategy and action to offer an experience that is halfway between the SWAT franchise and the excellent Frozen Synapse.
