Zombies! When will their hunger for flesh end?! Gamers have killed billions of them by now but they just keep coming! In Vanish Rain, a zombie shooter with defense elements by Origaming, it's time to do your part to cull the zombie legions once more. You're helping devoted sister Anna survive for 15 days in zombie-infested Riverhead City as she waits for her brother's return.
Aim with the mouse and click to fire your weapon, using the [spacebar] to reload. You'll need to blast zombies before they make it to your barricade and start chipping away at its health, since if the barricade falls, you'll fall with it. Wholesale slaughter of zombies will earn you money, which you can spend on new guns, upgrades and repairs during the intermission between each day. There's a variety of firearms available, each with their own strengths and weaknesses, so you can pick a piece that suits your style.
Along with the basic zombie-busting action in the main game, there's also a Survival mode available that challenges you to make it through 30 days rather than 15 and several Challenge levels that are unlocked as you play through the story. There's also achievements galore if you enjoy hunting them down. While the core gameplay in Vanish Rain never changes significantly, the plot is interesting and popping zombies left and right has an addictive quality all its own. Besides, it's not like we're going to run out of zombies anytime soon... go nuts!
Bored-quit on level 3.
upgrading weapons did not work for me. Bought a new gun at the shop, but when I started a new level, I still had the old one
applepie, I believe you have to equip the new weapon for it to be active when you start the next level.
I found that keeping an upgraded pistol for long distance and a shotgun for close range combat allowed me to breeze through several of the early rounds. I only wish headshots were a little more effective.
Some kind of bug brought up a console. Couldn't figure out how to close it.
Thanks for the review, JIG! I must pop up and let you guys know that this is "Pilot episode" for Vanish Rain. Please expect bigger sequels!
And about that Console thing: It was used to
win an achievement (open Achievements page to see more).
If you look at the console widget, you would see that there's a button to close it.
