JamesZombocalypseWhile on a surveillance mission over the suburbs, your helicopter goes down and you find yourself on the ground surrounded by the living dead. What do you do? What DO you DO? Because everyone on the planet must have seen something with a zombie in it by now, the answer is simple: 1. Don't Panic. 2. Lock 'n Load. It's action, it's survival, it's Zombocalypse time...

Zombocalypse is about marathon survival, a recurring theme in Ironzilla's games and the studio's most polished game yet. Moving left and right on a horizontal playing field (not unlike Zombie Knight), you have to keep the hordes of zombies at bay by lopping off their heads and employing all the firepower that falls from the heavens (presumably military supply drops). You can't hoard weapons, just fire them until the clip is empty. Then you nab the next gun that hits the ground or resort to your trusty machete. It's all locked to the keyboard: [left] and [right] [arrow] keys to move side-to-side and [spacebar] to open fire. [Down] picks up a weapon or power-up and [up] engages the backup weapon.

Back-up assaults are rewarded through escalating your kill combo; it's just what you need when the zombies (which come on three variants) start mobbing. Weapon drops include fun stuff like chainguns and flamethrowers; you soon learn that nothing, not even the slower sniper rifle or uncomfortably intimate riot shield, are off-limits when it comes to zombie carnage. You'd throw your shoes if you could... Backing all of this is a nicely rounded upgrade and achievement system that helps keep the momentum going. But if those don't get you hooked, you are likely to find Zombocalypse a try-once experience. It would have been nice to have a melee attack for when a zombie manages to sidle up next to you and while the ability to change heads is cute, it's a pity you can't do the same for backgrounds. Still, Zombocalypse is fun, reasonably difficult, and addictive; if escalation and nerves of steel seems like your thing, slap in another clip and start firing...

Nice game. It seems the best way to rake kills is to

use the flamethrower one very short bust at a time, which insta-kills everything but the big guys, and once you hit a 100 hits combo call down the chopper support and look for another flamethrower, or a minigun otherwise.

One question remains though, how do I ascend? I've already gotten 100% of achievements.

It starts pretty well, but soon you have to grind and grind and grind and grind to get a single upgrade. Don't try to stretch out ten minutes of content into four hours, it doesn't come out well.
