You Want Zombies? I Got Plennnty Zombies!
BASED ON DEMO
It’s your honeymoon, but it’s about to turn real ugly. The beautiful island getaway becomes a trap when you discover everyone else on the island, including your just-wedded husband has been taken ill with something that is turning everyone into ZOMBIES. Excuse me, didn’t I write up this story yesterday?
If you were a bit disappointed by the scarcity of actual zombies in yesterday’s game, you’ll be pleased to know, in this one, they are everywhere, moaning, whining, wrecking stuff. In fact they’d be a real danger to your health, except for one weakness. They can’t abide water – and it’s raining. First time I have been glad to see that in a spooky game. But you will still require ingenuity to move around safely indoors.
This game has marvellous FUN POTENTIAL, and if you can overlook quite POOR PRODUCTION STANDARDS, you’ll probably love it. The GRAPHICS at first appear good, but there is more than one occasion when the seams between image cuts are visible, SLOPPY. There are black screens between scenes.
Likewise, the names of items are sometimes completely wrong. Dall for a diary, or is it a doll picture on a diary? You see the problem.
There is also weirdness such as: shoot the small sack hanging from the street light to get the car key.
Once again, it’s NOT FOR THE EXPERT crowd. But it IS a HO Puzzle Adventure, there are as many PUZZLES as HO scenes (which are slightly INTERACTIVE LIST), but they are all EASY so far. Each HO scene is visited twice. Items are sometimes quite small.
We have NO MAP, but we do have DIRECTIONAL HINT, and a JOURNAL it’s a good idea to check, as it helps make the story make more sense.
We have ACHIEVEMENTS, of the necessary-for-game kind. They can be seen from the menu and there are only about 8 of them.
MUSIC is very dramatic and does add flavour to the tense and urgent atmosphere. VO was okay.
The demo took me 30 minutes, and I’m a slow player, but what I did I had fun with.
So, I am having difficulty rating this one. It’s definitely B GRADE, but I enjoyed it.
Guess that makes it an ideal punchcard filler!I Recommend This Game!
