Game Review: Stupid Zombies

 

 

This game is a take on the popularity of Angry Birds and most of the game play flows the same way. From a stationary position on the left of the screen you use your finger to fire something at obstacles/objects in ever increasingly compile arrangements.

 

In this case we aren’t flinging birds but firing a sawed-off shotgun at zombies. Although it looks like  a shotgun it actually fires a rather large bullet that ricochets around the screen taking out zombies. It’s surprisingly easy to pull off even the most complex shots and you’ll get drawn in to the game pretty quickly. I just went through the first few levels but found that the complexity and level of difficulty was fun as you shoot objects like barrels and planks.

On one level shooting a glowing red button causes a gate to open so look for that sort of functionality in the upper levels. Oddly enough though the one level I found like that never had any other levels like it immediately afterwards as I would expect so I’m not sure why that particular challenge was placed where it was.

 

One complaint I might make is that although objects in the game crush up the zombies and bust their heads pretty well, zombies landing on zombies have no effect.

One more feature rather similar to Angry Birds is the ability to call in an air strike to take out zombies on levels you get too frustrated with. It’s got a great bang for the buck.

Actually there isn’t even a buck as I was using the free version. The pay version supports game center and turns off the adds.

If you liked Angry Birds and want a little zombie fun this might be the game for you. It’s fun and not too hard. It’s not all that original though and it didn’t keep my interest as many of the levels just feel the same. I’d give it two out of three stars because it is to Angry Birds what the Gobots were to the Transformers. Well, no it’s not that bad. OK!

Three stars!
