Door Kickers
  • GENREStrategy
Door Kickers is an innovative realtime strategy game that puts you in charge of a SWAT team and lets you command them during a tactical intervention.

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.

Press previews:
“Door Kickers is a very fun, very simple to pick up but difficult to master strategy with real time SWAT tactics.” - GamersDissent

“If you’re a fan of the SWAT games, Rainbow Six, Frozen Synapse, (...) then you’ve probably got Door Kickers pencilled in your diary, perhaps even accompanied by a couple of exclamation marks.” - PC Gamer

“It’s a thing of beauty and manages to capture the planning and satisfying execution of more complex strategy games, as well as the gung-ho and the popping-off of growly man in military shooters. (...) It’s probably the best man-shootery game I’ve played in years.” - Indie Statik

  1. Constantly Evolving & Insanely Addicting
    by Andrew Wardlaw, - Feb 28th 2014

    I purchased this game on steam when it was in Alpha 7 and I played through the entire game until I got 3 stars on every level. It takes an IMMENSE amount of strategizing. You will fail a thousand times, which makes completing the level insanely rewarding, especially with the newly implemented replay system.

    A few of my friends saw me playing the game and purchased it for themselves. They had a much harder time on several levels and got absurdly frustrated at the game. This didn't stop them from playing for another 4 hours to complete that one level. I must warn you not to take this with a grain of salt. Doorkickers is extremely addicting. You will seemingly teleport into the future and wonder what happened to the last several hours.

    Every update makes the game better and better. I saw some footage from Alpha 6 and the game took leaps and bounds forward in the Alpha 7 update. It's constantly evolving with new and refined features. As I write this, the game is in Alpha 8. I highly recommend this game.

  2. Surprisingly Amazing & Addicting
    by Blair Barkley, Canada - Feb 17th 2014

    I was cautious to get this game because my Mid 2010 Macbook had lower specs than the minimum requirements. So I got the game on sale because it still looked interesting. To my surprise, the game runs perfectly with my lower specs, and I haven't noticed any lag or performance issues.

    The game itself started out easy enough and I thought, if this is how the rest of the game will go, I'll be finished it in no time. Again, I was surprised! The missions got progressively harder and more complex with each mission I completed. You can even customize your team members with different weapons. There are tons of maps/missions to keep you busy for a long time. And the replay value is about as high as you can get.

    Though it's on it's 8th Alpha, I think the game is complete as is.

    I can't recommend this game enough. It will last you many hours even once you finish it.

  3. Already a great game yet still evolving
    by Ubic, Canada - Nov 17th 2013

    Knock down doors and take out the bad guys! This game boasts a simple yet elegant and flexible interface. With each Alpha release they add new features which makes gameplay richer. I expect this will continue as new ideas get integrated.

    Fun and well worth getting involved now as it develops.
