Age of Booty and Atom Zombie Smasher Join the OnLive PlayPack

Age of Booty and Atom Zombie Smasher are this week's new members of the OnLive PlayPack. The PlayPack now counts 148 games and growing.

Age of Booty

Age of Booty is a real-time action strategy game published by Capcom and developed by Certain Affinity.

Set in the swashbuckling era, Age of Booty is a casual real-time strategy game that puts players at the helm of their own pirate ship with the goal of sending your enemies to the briny deep, and looting and capturing towns for your pirate faction. In Age of Booty for OnLive, players team up with AI-controlled pirate ships to raid, pillage, sink, and destroy their way to dominance on the high seas. Spoils of war and booty are used to upgrade and customize pirate ships to make them even more deadly as players take on 25 unique challenges and seven of the most devious Pirate Alliances on the high seas. Gain notoriety and fame by climbing the online leader boards. Real-time action strategy from Certain Affinity, lead by Max Hoberman, designer of Halo 2 and Halo 3's multiplayer game. Raid villages, sink merchants, seize towns, steal gold, upgrade your pirate ship and use your guns and your wits to send your foes to the briny deep. Master twenty-five unique maps. Tons of customizable options that allow you to tune the game to meet your taste.

Sadly the game comes to OnLive without the multiplayer, the one feature the game is built in mind. Sadly this is custom for OnLive PlayPack games because OnLive doesn't get the source code of the game and the developer doesn't port the game for OnLive. The game on OnLive also doesn't support map creation and sharing. I guess it's better than no games.

Metascore: 76

Atom Zombie Smasher

Atom Zombie Smasher is an indie strategy game published and developed by Blendo Games.

Players must save survivors from the 1961 zombie apocalypse by assembling an army of mercenaries and firing nuclear missiles from orbit to destroy the oncoming horde.

Mercenaries for hire: Hire and upgrade your ragtag group of snipers, demolition teams, orbital bombardment crews, and more.

No two cities are the same: Cities are procedurally-generated, giving a unique experience with each playthrough.

Destructible environments: Yes, you can absolutely blow up everything.

Sadly the game also comes to the OnLive PlayPack with no cooperative multiplayer. Up to three people can cooperatively play together in the full game. Of course the game also comes with no mod support and mod sharing, which is a feature of the full game.

Metascore: 75
