Zombie Duck Hunter: one star
I decided to grab a bunch of zombie games to pass the few free moments I have this fall so I started with this classic game from the Nintendo era now resurrected on iOS.
Like the classic duck hunt, ducks come flying by and you shoot at them. The key here is that you are shooting zombie ducks, instead of regular ducks.
That’s it. I mean you could guess that much from the title right? It’s called Zombie Duck Hunt after all.
This game falls into a category of games whose game play hinges on the gimmick and the window dressing. It’s sort of a cheap duck hunt game that’s just been dressed up with the undead. That is, the zombies in this game don’t actually effect the mood or feeling of the game by building a palpable atmosphere and don’t add to the game play at all.
The game seems to be a bit roughly put together in some cases. Like where the blog displays inside a pop up window. But it pops up at full size so we have to navigate rather awkwardly around the window.
All in all it was a fun minute and a half but there’s nothing here to keep my attention for longer than that even on the crapper.
