|One-liners by Barry Steakfries – Enough said|
BRAIIINNNSSSSSS. Professor Brains has made a time machine and sent zombies to different eras to take over the world! The world is doomed… but wait, Barry Steakfries and his one-liners to the rescue! In Age of Zombies you play as Mr. Steakfries as he travels through time in order to stop Professor Brains with your collection of SMGs, shotguns, flamethrowers, buzz saws, bazookas, land mines, and more!
The controls are simple. One thumb controls movement while the other controls the direction you shoot. The controls were responsive and its nice how you can change in the options whether you want the controls fixed in place or wherever you place your thumb. The responsive controls are vital especially when you are being chased by hordes of zombies where one wrong move will get you surrounded and torn to pieces!
The graphics are great and the game did not slow down even if the entire screen was nearly full of zombies chasing me. There is a great level of detail in the zombies to the point where you can tell there are multiple types chasing you down. The sounds were right on as well from gunshots to zombies screaming “brainnnss”, although in survival mode the sound would occasionally go away for a few seconds and then come back.
There are two modes of play: story and survival. The story mode, while short, is a blast. There are 4 time periods you travel through, each with 3 levels. Mr. Steakfries is prepared for each era with not just his weapons, but also his awesome one-liners. At the end of each era you fight a boss related to the area. The game isn’t too difficult and I was able to beat the story mode in less than 2-3 hours. The survival mode is self-explanatory: survive as long as you can and rack up your score! This helps to add replay value as you try to climb up the leaderboards (it uses Open Feint).
Overall this is a great game from the creators of Fruit Ninja. We highly recommend it!
