Let's be honest. If you had both a medieval-style cannon thing and an unlimited supply of the undead to serve as ammo, you'd probably spend most of your time trying to launch them into various spikes, hooks, rotating saws, crushing anvils, and shocking tesla coils. Don't even try to front: we all know the mischief you caused with the trebuchet you constructed in physics class. Fortunately, Mibix has come out with Impale 2, a puzzle game that gives you gory zombie-flinging action without the intensive clean-up afterward.
Position the mouse to determine the cannon's direction and launching power, then click to fire. Each level has various obstacles that need to be activated by flinging a zombie against them. Some obstacles, like saw blades, are immediately fatal, while others, like the trapazoidal fire vats, require you to dump the zombie in from the top. Sometimes you will have to manipulate the environment to line up a good shot, but knocking an unactivated device off the screen may cause you to fail. While you won't run out of ammo, the fewer zombies you use, the more points you'll score. Impale 2 is great for a little simple, immature fun. The way the zombies flair across the screen is hilariously ragdolly, and, call it macabre, but a well-timed splatter is very satisfying. Impale 2 could use a clarifying instruction screen and a little adjustment to its hit-detection, but overall, its 70 levels of horror make one wish for Halloween to come early this year.
