Tower defence strategy meets fast-action shooter

Exclusive to Amazon Fire TV, Sev Zero combines fast-action shooter mayhem with the calculated strategy of tower defence gameplay.

Sev Zero is a new kind of game that pushes the limits of living-room gaming. Strategically place and use a wide array of automated defences to stop invading aliens from taking control of your outpost. For more tactical attacks, teleport from your tower down to the ground to personally blast the invaders to smithereens.

Cooperative gameplay on a second screen

With Sev Zero: Air Support, the companion app for Sev Zero on Kindle Fire HD and Kindle Fire HDX, you and another player can unlock a gaming experience on your Amazon Fire TV unlike any other.

Sev Zero: Air Support uses the Amazon Fire TV’s Second Screen feature to provide each player with a unique role. The player with the Amazon Fire Game Controller defends the outpost from the ground in first-person view. The second player collects resources, launches air strikes and helps the main player destroy the invading aliens from their Kindle Fire HD or HDX tablet.

The plus points being the contours of the controller feel good in the hands, the triggers and shoulders buttons also feel fine and it synced up with the Fire TV with no hassle. Minus points being the analogue sticks are not very precise and seem to have a large dead zone off centre, they are also quite slippery. You need to have the thumb power of The Incredible Hulk to move that D-pad and after only 30 minutes of using the controller the X button has developed a loud squeaking sound every time it's pressed which is very annoying so it's either get a replacement or get the can of wd-40 out.

For that price I expect better.

I should have trusted the bad reviews. This is clunky, over complicated and over priced. The analogue sticks are in weird places, they'd work better if they were parallel to each other, like a PS3 controller. The D pad is either too sensitive or faulty because when I try to use it to navigate through menus, it often throws me back up to the previous menu. The texture of the plastic doesn't allow for a very good grip of the controller. It's £34.99 and comes with two free games, but Sev Zero is kinda crap and has already been removed and Castle of Illusion is for children, so, not the added value that they were meant to be.

I'll persevere with it and see if more regular use will make it better, but my initial belief is that it will end up in a drawer.

A bad controller can ruin a game system.

As stated elsewhere this has really awkward button feel. They stick the d-pad is terrible and the joystick are floppy and just not right.

But the main reason I am sending mine back is that for some incredibly odd reason when pressing the play pause button it turns my TV ON and OFF!?!! It's so weird. It's a 2008/9 Phillips so no idea why its doing it... it's not even bluetooth.

Also even 7 months after release, there seems to be a massive lack of games that actually use this thing properly. When Apple release theirs ATV4 with Appstore... you can bet there will be hundreds of good games.

The actual Fire TV player is great though. Keeping that.

Seems to work fine for a while then just freezes after several minutes when playing a game! After 'kick-starting' the game again with the remote the Game Controller again works for a while. Can't seem to find a cure - even rebooting the system doesn't work.

Bought as a present for a Minecraft fan so he could play the version of the game sold on Amazon Prime. Excellent quality and the packaging, like all Amaon products, looks sleek and stylish. Very similar to the Playstation control so I was able to get used to it quickly during the five minutes I was allowed to have a go. Also, you can use it to navigate Prime if you misplace the regular remote, so it's also a nice emergency backup when the kids lose the latter down the back of the sofa.

I bought this to complement my new Fire TV. There are a lot of times when the key pad approach is unsatisfactory. I noted how similar it appeared to the Xbox controller; and hoped for a similar performance. Generally it's OK but not outstanding. I found the control sticks small and easily fumbled; not a problem I had with the Xbox controller despite my advanced years. The Bluetooth is a great idea; but there is a pronounced latency, which makes for a frustrating experience when playing any reaction specific games.
Worst of all! there is no definition sheet with the controller. Do you imagine that everyone who buys a game controller knows instinctively what does what? Many purchasers of Fire TV will be older people as I am. Just a simple instruction sheet would do! we don't need an encyclopaedia; but not everyone knows instinctively how an Xbox controller works, although the online fraternity "assume" this is the case. Do some work on it - It does have the potential!!

I bought this controller specifically to play games such as GTA Vice City. Therefore it's really frustrating that it's unusable! As soon as you start playing the game it becomes apparent there's no button to select the Map option or to buy things.... it simply won't let you as the game is designed for touch screens. Does anyone have any idea how to get this to work? Tried changing the controls but it won't let you.
