Gameplay

Zombie Apocalypse is a multidirectional Shooter. The player controls one of four characters through 55 levels set in 7 different maps. The player's main objective is to kill wave after wave of zombies using a range of weapons and the environment. Secondary to this is to save survivors, who appear randomly throughout the level and can be rescued via helicopter. Use of environmental kills rewards the player with more points for their score via a multiplier which resets back to 0 upon death. Each of the game's modes can be played in single player, local co-op or online multiplayer, supporting up to 4 players.

Gameplay is simple, using just the right analog stick to shoot your weapons in all multi directions, which range from your default unlimited machine gun through to powerup weapons that have a limited amount of ammo, such as shotguns, akimbo uzi's, sniper rifles, molotov cocktails, grendade launchers, chainsaw and rocket launchers. The game also uses "zombie bait" similar to the "monkeys" from COD 5 WAW, the Zombie Bait is a teddy bear where, when thrown, attracts the zombies to it and then detonates as the bait is also C4 in disguise !

Playing through the game you can unlock several new game modes such as Turbo (allows the game to be played at twice the speed, guns and zombies move faster), Chainsaw only mode, 7 days of Hell Mode also (the average level has 100 - 250 zombies, 7 Days of Hell has minimum 1500 zombies per level !) Blackout mode (playing the game through all the levels without streetlights).

There are 12 trophies available on both the PSN and XBOX 360 versions.

Development

Nihilistic sought to make a pure arcade shooter, akin to Robotron 2084 and Smash TV.[2] Inspiration for the environments and characters was taken from zombie films, including Night of the Living Dead and Return of the Living Dead.[2]

Reception

On Metacritic, it has received an aggregate score of 64 from 11 reviews, giving the game a ranking of "mixed or average reviews."[3][4]
