    Review: Zombie Tycoon

    ESRB: T for Teen Developer: Frima Studio Number of Players: One Size: 54 MB Price: $7.99 (CDN) Rating: Buy In my opinion, you can never have too many video games with zombies. Usually, you are spending all your time shooting them in the head, severing their limbs and trying to figure out how to stop the outbreak from spreading. We spend all this time destroying them, but what about the people who create and control them? Zombie Tycoon pits you as a budding ZEO (Zombie Executive Officer). You are given access to three zombie units with which you will terrorize the streets, destroying buildings and eating brains as you plan your global domination. Each of the game’s ten levels boasts a new map with various obstacles and items to collect. With the over 100 items, you can arm your zombie minions to the teeth, equipping them with items such as

    Undead Labs to create console-based Zombie MMO

    Zombies are kindof a big deal. It seems that any book, movie, or video game that features zombies is an instant hit. Well that is what industry Veteran Jeff Strain is banking on with his new development studio, Undead Labs in Seattle. The studio’s sole focus will be on creating a massively multiplayer online zombie game for console gamers. Strain knows the mmo space as he left NCsoft last summer to create Undead Labs. He also worked at Blizzard Entertainment on Starcraft and Diablo. “Every time I see a good zombie movie with friends, we spend days debating our strategies for surviving the zombie apocalypse,” said Strain. “The police station, or the supermarket? Garden rake, or staple gun? Bach, or the White Stripes? I’m a game developer, so I’d probably be useless for anything other than ghoul bait, but I’m excited to have the opportunity to build an MMOZ that

    Guest Review: The Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman

    The Walking Dead Writer-Robert Kirkman Artist-Tony Moore and Charlie Adlard After being injured in the line of duty, Rick Grimes awakens from a coma to find himself in an abandon hospital. He soon learned the reason why it is abandon. Zombies have taken over. Throughout the book, however, they are referred to as “roamers” and “biters”, but very rarely “zombies”. Leaving the hospital, Rick soon learns that civilization has changed drastically. After traveling for a bit, Rick is reunited with his wife, Laurie and son, Carl. He also meets the people they have been staying with. Food is scarce, staying in one place to long is dangerous and people aren’t always what they seem. Kirkman does a good job of keeping us on our toes and providing cliff hangers at the end of almost every chapter. As time goes on our characters run into more problems than just zombies; groups

    Nut up or Shut up… and go see Zombieland!

    It’s no secret that I love just about anything involving zombies. So when I first saw the trailer for Zombieland, I was stoked. It looked like it would have everything I could ever want in a zombie movie: shotguns, disgusting zombies, fire, and comedy. Zombieland takes place in a post-apocalyptic US where we are introduced to Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg), who is a bit of a wuss albeit a smart one with some great rules for surviving in Zombieland; and Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson), an ass-kicking zombie killer who is on a mission to get a Twinkie. Columbus and Tallahassee eventually run into Wichita (Emma Stone) and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin) who they then have to decide if they want to trust and stick out the zombie apocalypse with or to go their separate ways. WARNING: There may be spoilers below so DO NOT READ FURTHER if you don’t want to be

    Review: Undead Knights

    ESRB: M for Mature Genre: Hack & Slash Action Number of Players: One (2-4 in Ad-Hoc) Developer: Tecmo Games Release Date: Sept 29, 2009 Rating: Buy it! Disclaimer: This review is based on the review build that was sent out. The final version of the game may have some slight differences and tweaking of gameplay. I haven’t played a good hack and slash game in a very long time. So when you tell me about a game that incorporates zombies into it…. well, I’m sold! Tecmo Games has done just that, with a great new game for the PSP – Undead Knights. The story is a simple one: the King, influenced by his hot and busty young new wife, has decided that the House of Blood (a family who has long serviced the throne) should be wiped out. Little did the King know that his daughter had just married into

    What Will You Name Your iZombie?

    Panda Cake raises Your Pet Zombie from the grave on the App Store today. If you had a Tamagotchi (or if you didn’t but always wanted one… or even if you are saying right now, “what’s a Tamagotchi?”), it’s time to revisit the taking care of a digital pet phenomenon. Feed it brains every day (or else it may starve and die…again. Take care of it, don’t get him too fat (or he will be too tired to chase the humans), buy him a puppy, find him a girlfriend, watch him Tweet (and answer his trivia questions for a chance to win Apple gift cards), shop in the Brain Shop, and rain down the Zombie Apocalypse. The higher the body count, the better. Watch for a “Zombie Lovers” expansion pack featuring Anti-Survival and Fantasy modes, Thrilling new clothes, new items and abilities, and little magical creatures! “All this and more,

The new space has the cartoony art style of the game and has visitors wandering through the graveyard, crypts and a maze. There are goodies and extras in the two crypts if you’re brave enough to go in. I’m probably not. They aren’t saying what the third crypt has inside. Follow
