The Horror Geek presents: Zombie Apocalypse shambling on to Xbox 360 and PS3

Mike Bracken's picture

I'm slacking off apparently, because IGN posted these videos back on the 2nd and I'm only just now finding them (and only because Dread Central posted them recently).

Anyway, my fellow Game Critic Brad Gallway is telling me that Burn Zombie Burn! didn't turn out quite as well as we'd hoped (you can read his thoughts on it here). That's a bummer (although I'm still gonna have to check it out for myself), but hope for a classic Robotron/Zombies Ate My Neighbors updating lives on—this time in Zombie Apocalypse, which is headed to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Checking out the video should make it obvious that the game draws a lot of inspiration from Robotron. The title is a two stick shooter with a multitude of weapons at the player's disposal. Hordes of brain-craving undead fill the screen and the main objective is to terminate them with extreme prejudice while saving the occasional civilian and racking up a bonus multiplier. According to early previews, the title will have four playable characters, feature 55 levels of zombie-slaying goodness, and features both local and online co-op play. I'm already sold.

Developed by Nihilistic and published by the fine folks at Konami, expect to see Zombie Apocalypse sometime in September of 2009.

Dude, Zombie Apocalypse

Dude, Zombie Apocalypse looks *WAY* better than Burn, Zombie, Burn. Can't wait to try that one out... maybe it'll help me forget the stunningly mediocre taste left over by BZB.

Looks like another average

Looks like another average top down shooter to me. What's the difference between shooting zombies as opposed to geometric shapes in this genre? Maybe the actual game will bring something new or unique to the table, but for now the video doesn't show a lot that I haven't seen before in a two stick shooter.
