“Play this game sober you’ll have fun, play this game drunk or high and you’ll be mesmerised.”
Keeping up the trend of QUICKPICKLE week I’ve decided to make my own focusing on the amazingly funky zombie horde Indie game fest “I MAED A GAM3 W1TH ZOMBIES 1N IT!!!1. “ It can be yours for only the price of one shiny pound coin, and at such a reasonable price this small simple game delivers.
Essentially, it is a platform game played using only the joysticks of your controller and nothing more- one to move the character, the other to fire weapons. New weapons are easily acquired throughout the game, by simply walking over them as they appear on the battlefield; these include such things as laser guns, flamethrowers (my favourite), rocket launchers and Gatling guns.
The real strength in this game becomes apparent as you continue to survive against your brain-eating counterparts. As you play, the whole setting of the game rapidly begins to change. At first your fighting in a simple green field but the next moment you find yourself doing battle on a psychedelic disco floor, then in space, then on a chessboard, the list goes on and on. Play this game sober you’ll have fun, play this game drunk or high and you’ll be mesmerised. Not only does the world change, but the enemies change also, from zombies to spaceships to blobs ect. The game also pays clever homage to classic games such as “Snake” and “Space Invaders” by making them iconic characters within the game that try their very best to kill you.
This game also has a great original soundtrack that fits appropriately into the game’s colourful personality. Featuring a heavy metal number with vocals, it’s sure to keep edging you on as you try to kill exploding diamonds.
The only real pitfall of this game is the fact that it has an ending; it is possible to survive against the increasingly tougher waves of enemies only to be sent packing back to the main menu. This does somewhat undermine the replay ability of a game that would’ve been almost perfect, had it been a never ending endurance run in the same way the “Nazi Zombies” series from Call of Duty had. However, at the low price of just a pound it most certainly isn’t penny pinching.
Cheap. Great fun. Simple Xbox 360 Indie game
