A downloadable game


This game is no longer available on itch.io. You can download the latest version on steam: https://store.steampowered.com/app/652750/Polygon_Hero/


Defend your city against the zombies before the infection spreads too far!

As Polygon Hero, you need to decide who to save. The infection spreads too fast for you to save all the citizens. With 10 different types of zombies, you need to strategize which ones you'll kill first. Crawler zombies can climb walls and jump on you, boomer zombies self-detonate, shade zombies can move through walls and charge, giant zombies can throw corpses!

I'll be honest you could work on this game a whole lot more. Yes it's great it's tons of fun but before you start working on a "polygon hero 2" the things you plan on adding seem like it would be better as an update to the game than a complete remake. This games great but I'm just saying it could be a lot better.

Are there still updates coming to this?

Golden Guns have more firepower, more magazine capacity (or just more ammo), better accuracy, are gold but the refill cost is 2 - 3 times higher than the normal gun (also sry to Jzlla if I interrupt).

Haha thank you! I'm glad you like it. I'm thinking of making a "Polygon Hero 2" with multiplayer, more maps, more effects, better animations, more modes, and a lot more.

Congratulations on getting Polygon Hero into Steam! It's a well deserved achievement, I hope youse proud! Hope it keeps expanding '3' XD

Haha thank you! I haven't touched it. I'm thinking about making a second one with better mechanics, multiplayer, and stuff. But Idk if thats a good idea.

a mode where there is no civilians and you have to buy doors to progress and baccicly black ops zombies would be great (you could auto heal and use the siringes as revives for other players


A few ideas for the game:

Add a mode where you don't have to keep the civilians alive

Add a custom mode where you can disable certain zombies or change the rounds they appear on, this mode would have no effect on the leaderboards

Maybe a map of a school and maybe a military camp/base 


Salutations! I heard that this game was on the App Store but it wasn't available in the US Canada or Japan App Stores. If it is on the App Store which country is it on? Just wondering.

We removed it from the app store because of frame rate issues and control problems. Also, it wasn't getting much support haha

oh well I guess I won't be playing this until I get a computer then since I only have my iPad

Not much support?! This is a GREAT game! Get me my agent


hey, got question, you know that big building that the only way to get up is on those VERY THIN platform thingies? Well is there anything special on it or something, cause I think there is otherwise you wouldn't have done or you just like annoy people with stuff  like that. you know which building I'm talking about right?

I was going to put something up there, but I never really got to it unfortunately :/

Pretty darn impressive!

Lol, awesome video. Thanks for your support! :)

Very Fun and well made. But in the next version can you please add some things like: After dying becoming the zombie as a choice, multiplayer, also i dont know why but if you can do this.. i know this is weird but.. maybe add a suicide option..? Sorry but i think that if you were turning into a zombie you would be in need of that option. Anyway maybe add modes like: Endless which is kind of already the game, boss mode,  no weapon mode,  'Survivor Mode' which would be you play as a citizen and have a bot fill in playing the game and killing the zombies. Also add minigames maybe? A minigame suggestion is being in a box surrounded by walls and 1 window on each wall (even the roof). And you get a question mark under you which only has 1 use and you get your chance of survival with it. It is your gun which you shoot through the windows and kill the infinite number of zombies coming also infinite ammo. No citizens or anyone.. just a box, windows, and zombies. If the zombies readh your box they will climb through the window and attack you in cutscene style so you have nothing to do exept train your reaction time because while the zombie is attacking when it gets through the window during the cutscene you will have to left click very fast to shoot it. I hope you actually could read this because its so long so hpe you think about it and good job making the game even without this because this game is very good.

also thx for allowing polygon hero to have grenades antidotes and barricades, if I did not have them I would have died a lot more to get past wave 25 etc

also how many waves are there in total? Cause i don't think in coding or gamemnaker it can be infinite like there must be a boss battle or something?

it's infinite 


:O        ... Well...that's really cool and you must do seriously coding 'n' stuff. Though I would ask for like boss battle thing like very powerful zombie but once defeated says you beat the game and continues in infinite mod. It's just an idea as if the game is infinite...it's then impossible to pass the game at a certain level.

that sounds really cool

its not ifinite its just making new levels so the levels are made by them self so the codes not infinite well he she not making it constantly the  game does it lol I'm confused now

not very good at like the thumbnail etc more views pleaz


zombi simulator

Great game, wonder if there are any more maps though. That would be cool. Could be a map Based on a school. Could also be a secret base map as well. Just some suggestions.


That is IT! I am retiring from Atlas City WAVE 26! BABY! Not boasting here's a hit : You get no barricades or antidotes past wave 20. It's very difficult, I am gonna do maybe one more video on this as Atlas City or Shattered Woodlands. I have to say this is sooooo much fun. Health bar is an interesting idea and I recommend it. Also I would love a standoff version in which you don't need civilians, there are no buildings or they all to tall. 

Wait got better idea, no civilians barricades included. So it's just you, zombies keep spawning in at corners and won't stop until like 200 levels. There's a small base which has a ramp in which is like a last last stand thing. You can get gold weapons etc and can refill your barricades at limited checkpoint things. Presented as 'waves' though and will show how far you get. You have a health bar. Zombies will get progressively tougher and the yellow zombie can maybe jump small distance. This is just an endurance test thing. I think it would be awesome as a difficult game mode called something like 'The Hardcore 4D'.

This is just an idea for a zombie, this zombie has a vacuum around it that sucks civilians and the player near it. Just an idea.

I challenge players to beat wave 26. I JUST SURVIVED, i would like has 1 to 5 civilians left and ALWAYS erridaticate purple zombies or the upgraded fast zombies first.

Here are tips :

To kill purple zombie easy just wait until it attacks a civilian and it's distracted completely which is the best time to take it out.

Kill civilians sometimes if you don't want to spare antidote and you have MONEY to afford it.

Use barricades, they are VERY useful.

Weapons Best to Worst :

MK8R : Lots of Ammo okay fire rate

Golden AUG : Not bad ammo and superb accuracy, damage + fire rate.

Golden MK8R : Good ammo, fire rate okay accuracy but costs way too much for ammo.

Bazooka : Area of effect grenade

SIG : Fire rate + accuracy and okay ammo, never gotten a golden one though.

AUG : accuracy + fire rate. Standard

Leviathan : Never really used this but it has INFINITE penetration (goes through infinite amount of zombies)

This is excellent game okay. THIS is probably the best indie game I've seen for a while, fun, challenging and a kick-ass animation style. I even wanted to make a character comic thing of this. Ravinia6 i nominate you for the awesome indie game award, this award is fictional though so never mind.

This is incredible difficult game at high stages, if you are in for a challenge play this GAME!


add armor or a helth bar bleeding effect breaking bone effect huge world single player survival food thist and all make a standoff version that would b the best you have to barricade or run from a huge horde that comes and tries to kill u maybe a 7 days concept these idead probably suck but idk

love the game but the resolution is a little weird and draw  distance and stuff would be cool though I run flawlessly a little time before next round would be nice and people should have colors and wish zombies were green a color option would be very cool lastly I think I might make vids on this idk I want to though since I love the concept have u ever thought of making a full survival single player zombie poly gone game I have a potato pc and this game runs nicely wish all games were this optimized thanks for your time even though u probably don't have time for me 8 and a half out  of 10 so far;)

Glad you're enjoying it! The resolution glitch should be fixed. Now you can adjust the resolution.

im not sure what the update did to the game, but i cant play it anymore. I cant  hit begin.

side note, the resoloutions screwed up too

pls help

found the problem. So sorry for the inconvenience. We will update the files immediately.


Thanks lad. cheers.

This should fix the problem. Is the resolution still funky?

yah it looks 720 p or lower like 480 or 600 p

Alright. I'll see what I can do.


This is the video I said I will post.

awesome video :D thanks for your support!


No problem,I will post one with the other map soon.

Are you planning on making a mode where you can disable some zombies, such as the purp zombies and crawlers?

Unfortunately that would mess up the fairness of the game. However, we may change the order that the zombies spawn in.

I have a quick question: Since NO ONE has said anything about the giant zombie, can you show a small video of it or tell us which round its on? thanks!

The giants come out on round 28

Some tips from the number 4 on Altas City

  1.Take out the zombies sistematicly,don't go out blazing guns(Only if you want to look badass,wich is tottally fine)take each part of the map sistematicly

 2.Take a gun as soon as possible,that goes for the pistol and for the bigger ones

 3.If almost everybody is zombified,you can take them in a closed area,put baricades around them,and add turets on them,but check them frequently,cause the turets disipear after an certain amount of time.

P.S.The ranking is gliched,cause it sais me that i'm 4th of74th but it won't show me on the scoreboard. :P

What round did you get to? Someone may have taken fourth after you got it. The game doesn't update your rank until you beat your high score.


Hey! i love the new update! the new map is really good and luckily, i had a better run on this video :'D Again, very good job on this!

 Awesome video! Glad you like it!


Really good game,if you could only add some mele weapones,an riot shield and being able to cary more than 2 guns,in rest it's FUCKING AWESOME!!!!

Thanks! we'll consider your suggestions for future updates :)


Cheers too,Also I really love the fact that you added an tutorial,before,Ididn't knew that I could Wall-Jump,and I thougt that the weapones shown on the buildings,were glighed trough them.

And,I will add an video on youtube,once I find an good video editor witch I can work with.

I will let it here.

Really good game,if you could only add some mele weapones,an riot shield and being able to cary more than 2 guns,in rest it's FUCKING AWESOME!!!!


boom! wave 20, shouldn't have taken on 3 on those phasing purple guys, i have to say that is AN AWESOME ADDITION! 


sorry not VERY observant


OMG ART SYLE SOOOO COOOLLLL NOW. THIS IS AWESOME NEW MAP IS AWESOME. if you see a rank player called HugSomeSunshine or The Cup Holder that is ME! I will do this weekend a play through of this update and post it because it deserves it! SO COOL....especially new zombie

HOWEVER...to be honest.......I did prefer some aspects before, e.g. seeing where some weapons are on the map did help, if i did not see that pleas tell, though this is sooo cool.

I will be the best ranking player on the leader board, i will DO IT! mostly because i love the game soon much. Also...i am awesome, got to night 16 on previous version!


I am introducing this game to some people so they can support you or get it and appreciate it :)


-HugSomeSunshine, The Cup Holder

Thanks for your support! That helps us out a lot. I saw your high score :'D We have no idea how you got that far. Nicely done!

You can still see weapons on the mini-map.





WOW! I am so happy that you have not abandoned this game like many devs. You are one of the few indie developers that will actually listen to their fans and respond. This game keeps getting better and better! P.s. do you have a release date for multiplayer yet? It would be awesome for me and my friends to play                                                       together.                                                                                

                                                                                                                                 -One of the many fans                                                                       

We'll keep updating periodically. As for multiplayer, that will only be released if we get enough support for the game. As soon as we have a large audience, we will reconstruct the game with multiplayer support. So share with your friends!



Version 2.0.0 is now out: worldwide rankings and a new map!

Support us on Steam! http://steamcommunity.com/shar...

That is a popular request and we will add that in a future update!

This game was awesome! pretty damn difficult but awesome! very nice job on creating this game! :D
