Zombie Revenge is an arcade and Dreamcast video game released in 1999, one that falls squarely in the beat 'em up genre. Armed with their fists, feet, and whatever weapons they should find along the way, players are tasked with ridding an unnamed city of zombies that look more or less like the ones in House of the Dead. The House itself is featured as one of the later levels in the game.

Story

The time is the present. A city has been suddenly filled with the souls of the dead. A GOVERNMENT TOP SECRET PLAN U.D.S., Undead Soldier. It was a top-secret plan to utilize the dead for military purposes. Just before it was ready for operation all was thrown into darkness by someone unknown. A year later the city had become the home of the dead. Three of the best AMS agents were sent in, Stick Breitling, Linda Rotta and Rikiya Busujima. They have now been sent out to eliminate the enemy and track down the mysterious leader of this attack, known only as "Zed".

Characters

Protagonists

  • Stick Breitling

A tough, young AMS agent, Stick is well rounded in speed and combat. His father worked in the "U.D.S" experiments but this was not known to him until revealed by Zed.

  • Linda Rotta

Quick and agile, Linda is the fastest member of the trio of AMS agents sent to stop Zed.

  • Rikiya Busujima

An AMS agent from Japan, Rikiya appears to have cybernetic enhancements and many battle scars. He specializes in hand-to-hand combat. Though he only speaks Japanese, both Stick and Linda are fluent in the language and are able to communicate with him.

Antagonist

Zed

The main villain of the game, he wants revenge for his parents, who were murdered and used in the experiments to create the zombies by Stick's father, Gil Brietling. He despises all humans and wishes to turn them all into zombies by spreading the virus. He houses a powerful U.D.S. inside of him that he calls the God of Destruction, and waits to release it to kill the rest of the humans.

Trivia

  • Originally titled Blood Bullet: The House of the Dead Side Story, the game was later renamed Zombies Nightmare before Sega decided on the name Zombie Revenge. This game also serves as a spinoff to Sega's popular House of the Dead series of light gun games.[1]
  • There are signs throughout the game that prove Zombie Revenge is a spinoff to The House of the Dead. Zombies sound the same as they did in the first game, and the main protagonists from both the HotD series and Revenge are AMS agents. At the start of the game, computer icons of Thomas Rogan and "G" can be seen on Linda's desktop. The Curien Mansion seen in the first House of the Dead appears as its own stage, called "The House of the Dead" and the music from the first stage is used. The final boss of Revenge is called Black Magician Type 01. The game's credits sequence is also the same, going back through the game's stages to the beginning of the game.
