Over 9000 Zombies! Review
Taking advantage of game mechanics from other games, Over 9000 Zombies! is a fun zombie-slaying experience. By no stretch of the imagination is this game original or unique in any way, but it does exactly what it says on the tin.
Over 9000 Zombies! is a top-down shooter with an emphasis on survival through the use of fort building, gun turrets, and using whatever is available to mow down the undead. There is essentially no storyline – you are put straight into the action, but it doesn’t matter as a game such as this doesn’t require a deep narrative to work.
The zombies are relentless; they will attack you from all directions, forcing you to either find somewhere safer such as abandoned buildings or you can test your skills on the zombie-ridden streets. To increase your chances of survival, you are able to build strongholds and gun turrets, which if placed strategically, can provide a stable place to comfortably watch zombies get blown to bits.
Considering they’re dead, the zombies are clever and will tactically try and trap you inside a building, adding a level of difficulty and strategic thought that encourages diverse gameplay. Whilst the graphics aren’t much to boast about, you shouldn’t be put off as the gameplay is where this game shines – the addictive nature of shooting down hordes of enemies keeps you occupied for quite a while, although it’s easy to get bored eventually through the repetitive nature.
With each passing day, zombies will gain modifiers which either increase their speed, damage, or other attributes. With over 20 weapons available, including grenades, shotguns, machine guns, and rocket launchers, Over 9000 Zombies! provides plenty of fun and intense action – an indie game not to be dismissed.
