*** Quick Start Guide ***
This is a quick guide for new players which I think may come in handy this weekend.
What exactly is Nation Red?
Nation Red is a perk based top-down arena shooter (twin-stick shooter for console players) like Smash TV, Robotron and Crimsonland, with single player, local coop and on-line coop play across various arenas. Barricade mode offers a different type of challenge and has become most players' favorite mode.
With 360 degree action, the game becomes very hectic after about 5 minutes of play. It is not a 'corridor shooter' like Alien Swarm, but the player control and coop game setup will feel very familiar for players of that game.
In short, Nation Red is a perk + leaderboard + achievement shooter, alone or with friends.
Move the camera up or down using the middle mouse or the PageUp and PageDown keys. You can also set the camera to a 'topdown' view in the game options.
You can play in three perk modes:
There are some perks which most players consider must-haves, among them:
Accuracy, Armor, Boss Power, Friendly Fire, Living the Moment, Luck, Messy, Mirror Image, Powerup Hook, Regeneration, Strike Team, Wild Bunch. Other perks depend on your play style.
Perk Selection in Online games
Online games will use the Perk Mode you selected in the main menu. When playing in Random or Strategic Mode, you will receive a free Cloak powerup when you select a perk. This will prevent zombies from targeting you during perk selection.
If you do not want to deal with perk selection or you feel you don't have enough time to choose, you can create an Auto Perk list and play in Auto Perk Mode. The game will take care of the perk selection for you.
Game modes available in single player, coop or local coop.
You can 'charge' your melee attacks into a 360 degree round swipe by holding down the left mouse button for a second or two and then releasing it. The longer you charge the attack the more damage it will do.

The weekend demo doesn't properly link to the manual (only accessible via store page.)
