Releasing on Nintendo Switch on 28 October!
Rescue hostages, disarm bombs and save the day in this old school, side-scroller action game with retro graphics and retro sensibilities. Online and Couch Coop Included.
Door Kickers: Action Squad is a crazy old school side scroller action game that puts you in the role of a SWAT trooper and sends you to deal with the bad guys in Nowhere City USA.
Choose your gear, then kick the doors down and face the action. Adapt and react by the seat of your pants, and if needed – restart without a care and rethink. Master weapons recoil and time your reloads, use distance and cover to your advantage and use the in-game Strategic Abilities to decide for yourself when health-packs or gear refills are needed, or if that team-mate of yours is worth saving. Or just save up the Points earned and unleash your Ultimate to waltz through that tricky final room.
And when it gets too hard, bring over a friend to help.

‘’Action Squad is the game that you get when you mix our top down strategy title Door Kickers with an old school side scroller circa 1980-1990. Think Golden Axe, Dangerous Dave, Green Berets, but don’t think for one second we’re stuck in the past – we make games for the modern player and add our own ideas to the mix. And we’ve always meant the game to be played as informal as possible – easy to pickup, hard slash fun to master but also inviting to play at any time and in any context: Alone, with a friend online or a friend on your couch.
Obviously, there’s nothing more couch friendly and informal than playing on your console, and we’ve always known the game is headed there. The full Action Squad experience plus extra content and coolness we’ve added in the meantime is now available on PS4, XBox One and the Nintendo Switch.” says Dan Dimitrescu, game designer of the game series and bearer of the “I’ve seen Tape Loading Errors you wouldn’t believe” stare. No words of a Spectrum ZX version so far.
Door Kickers: Action Squad makes you think both tactically and strategically as you send your SWAT-like team to kick down the doors, blast the bad guys and rescue hostages in explosive Single Player and Co-op Multiplayer – with Couch play included. Launched in late 2018 on the PC and co-developed with PixelShard Labs, the game brings the full experience to consoles while also adding one new chapter with 12 new levels (The Slums) and a fun new playable character (the Off-Duty Guy). The new chapter and character will be available on PC as a free-for-all-players upgrade.
Door Kickers: Action Squad gets to have a limited edition boxed release as well, for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation®4 in partnership with Strictly Limited Games. In addition to the limited Standard Edition, there will also be an exclusive Collector’s Edition with 700 copies for PlayStation®4 and 1,500 copies for Nintendo Switch, which can also be ordered at www.strictlylimitedgames.com
