“Yet Another Zombie Defense Game,” normally $1.99, was on sale for $0.67. I bought a copy for me and had way more mindless fun than if I’d stuck 75 cents in an arcade game. So I bought three more copies and gifted them to my zombie-killing kids. Then my boys and I played together for about an hour and a half.
It’s a top-down, 3rd-person shooter with arrow keys for movement and the mouse for aiming, firing, and switching weapons. It’s played on a super-simple board — pavement with a single street lamp in the center. The zombies spawn at the edges and rush inward.
Survive the night and the next day you can shop for better weapons, ammo, etc.
Mindless, yes, but I had a great time with my sons. Yes, I’m in for more than just sixty-seven cents now. I’m in for $2.68 plus tax, but I stand by that subject line.
