Gameplay

In Burn Zombie Burn The player controls a character called Bruce, against a never ending horde of various zombies. The objective of the game is kill as many zombies as possible before he dies, whilst reaching certain score thresholds that unlock more of the game.

Fundamentally, the game is an infinite play score chasing arena based shooter. The core mechanic, as described in the game’s title, is about setting zombies on fire. In order to score high, the player has to set zombies on fire and each zombie on fire adds to their score multiplier. Flaming zombies are also more dangerous as they run faster and deal more damage to the player if they get too close.

Levels

The game is split across six levels with varying layouts. Each level also has a unique event that’s triggered by the “Big Red Button”. Attaining three consecutive weapon combos activates the button. Each event will normally help the player in some way but later in the game they can also harm him if he's not too careful.

Game Modes

There are four game modes in the game and all are available on startup. However, unlocking levels within each mode has to be done by the player. There is also an optional Tutorial present.

  • Freeplay – The simplest of the four modes; as the player just has to survive and score high.
  • Defense – This has the player protect Bruce’s girlfriend Daisy, who’s stationary and normally positioned in the center of each level. In order to protect Daisy the player must set zombies on fire and kill enough of them to produce a health pickup for Daisy.
  • Timed – The player starts with a five minute limit and he has to kill flaming zombies so that they drop a time pickup, which replenishes the timer.
  • Challenges – There are a total of ten challenges in the game, with varying objectives. These normally isolate certain game mechanics and place them in tougher scenarios for the player to complete.

PlayStation Home

On July 30, 2009, Doublesix released a Burn Zombie Burn themed space in the PlayStation 3's online community-based service, PlayStation Home. The space is called the "Burn Zombie Burn Lobby" in Asia and the "DoubleSix Lobby" in Europe and North America, and features a mini-game called The Maze. The Maze is a zombie infested maze that the users must make it through within two minutes. If they make it through successfully, they are rewarded a t-shirt for their Home avatar. The space also features a shop where users can buy additional Burn Zombie Burn themed t-shirts. There is also a video screen in the space advertising the game as well as a poster and seating for the users avatars. This space is available in the Asian, European, and North American versions of PlayStation Home.[1]

DLC Add on

On July 31, 2009, Doublesix announced an upcoming downloadable content pack named "Burn Zombie Burn! In Space…" which would include two new levels set on an alien space ship [3]. For nearly a year nothing was heard about the pack and in February Doublesix finally announced that the DLC was awaiting approval from Sony as was a patch that would include a new game mode[4]. In March it was announced that the DLC had passed submission at Sony Europe but no news about the American release yet[5].

Burn Zombie Burn has received positive reviews with an aggregate score of 76 on Metacritic. IGN gave the game a 8.3/10 and commented that "Where Burn, Zombie, Burn really works best is its simple but flexible set of rules: burn stuff, but don't let the fires get out of control" and " there's a ton of stuff to check out for a downloadable game, but be prepared to spend days if not weeks trying to unlock it all." GameSpot gave the game a 7/10 and commented that "It's short on variety, but an innovative risk-vs.-reward scoring system makes Burn Zombie Burn an intriguing entry in the top-down shooter genre."
