Your city is being overrun by zombies and you run down an alley because, why not? You’re probably dead anyway. But this alley is a dead end. Now, armed with only a nail gun and a chainsaw, you must fend off an endless wave of brain-hungry pseudo-living monsters who apparently have no one left to feed on except for you. Oh, and this one chick who keeps walking out of a club or something, totally oblivious to what is going on, and then just leaves without even acknowledging your presence or the fact that you very kindly didn’t put a nail through her ears for getting between you and the mindless horde. At least she has the courtesy to drop a health pak every single time.
This is a turret…uh, a turret-chainsaw-er, I guess. The graphics are great. A good cartoony style so you can let the kids try the game without too much worry about them being scared. But there is a decent amount of cartoony blood, so you’ll have to decide if the kiddos are ready for that. Unfortunately the gameplay seems a bit lacking. I kept trying to walk, thinking that there had to be more to the game. But it’s basically wait until the zombie gets close and then tap the trackpad and watch them burst. Repeat. Every once in a while you will have to deal with a “tank” zombie, but they are only slightly more difficult. It can be fun for a while and at only $1.99 it could be worth it just to kill some time for a while.
