Many moons ago, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six, was a popular game franchise. It was well-revered on PC, and made its way to consoles as well. There have been very few titles for Android gamers, that fill the void for tactical-team action. KillHouse Games released Door Kickers late last year. It is a top-down real-time strategy game involving a SWAT team. It started off on PC and was quite successful upon release. It made its way to iOS earlier this year, and will finally arrive on Android devices next week.
[UPDATE: Thursday, September 3rd – 8:54 AM, PST] Door Kickers as we mentioned earlier in the week, is now available to download in the Google Play Store. The game costs $4.99 to download and has no in-app purchases. If you are ready for some tactical-action gaming, you can download the game at the link at the end of this article.
KillHouse Games is a small independent studio in Bucharest, Romania. It was started in 2012 by Dan Dimitrescu, Mihai Gosa, and Catalin Saitan. They have produced one of the most visually impressive tactical games to grace the PC, and recently, mobile devices. We have been following the development of Door Kickers for Android for quite some time, and have been eagerly waiting for its arrival. The good news is that we don’t have to wait much longer. In an email we received from their updated blog, we got a single image. See that image below? That let’s us know that Door Kickers is coming really soon.
Door Kickers is a gorgeous looking game. Fortunately for Android gamers, this game goes way beyond the surface of that beauty, and has great depth in planning, strategy, action and missions. I already own the game for PC, and am looking forward to playing it on a tablet, because I think a tablet is the perfect size device for this type of game.
“Door Kickers is an innovative real-time 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 harder skill to master.” Killhouse Games
