Crunchtime

JayCrunchtimeA quick little mini-review for another Halloween-themed game, I just now dug up the link fresh from its moldy grave at Monsterland.se.

Crunchtime is a short and sweet, simple little Shockwave 3D zombie shooter. It's not a long game by any means; there are only 3 levels to the entire "experience." But it is an engaging one that will keep you occupied over a quick break for donuts and cider.

Use the arrow keys for movement while using the mouse to aim and shoot your staple gun. Conserve your shots and make them count, as it will take four shots per zombie and there are limited ammo packs available (staplers). Health power-ups are also few and far between, so keep some distance between you and those creeps.

Crunchtime is one from the vaults and more than a couple of years old. The game is not easy at first, but once you get the hang of it then it's a breeze. The prerendered graphics are gorgeous and help to make this tiny little Shockwave antique a classic. And while the gameplay experience won't likely win any awards, it does indeed fit within the spirit of the holiday with its dripping wet bloody zombies.

Update: The game is no longer available to play. Previously tagged as: browser, free, game, halloween, macwin, monsterland, pg13, shockwave, shooter, zombies

Not easy? Hehe, I had more then enough staples, and health wasn't an issue either. Only needed one health pickup. :P

Of course, it helps if you realize some nice mechanics.

For example, most zonbies don't come after you if you keep them on the edge of the screen.

And, also.. fire extinguishers explode, with one shot, as opposed to 4 for a zombie.

Correct music to put this to: "Re: your brains", by Jonathan Coulton. Listen and you'll understand...

I honestly don't like this game. Also, when reading some random comments page, I noticed you talking about Joytokey, a joystick keyboard emulation program. Thank you so much! Flash games are far more enjoyable now.

I'm having problems even loading the game. Is the game down?

A definitely dead link

It's a Shockwave game. The link is fine. Perhaps you just need to install the Shockwave player? A link for it is in the sidebar.

Link broken, well, at least, does not lead to game.

[The game is no longer available. I've removed the tags from the entry. Thanks for the note. -Jay]
