I’ve been wanting to nuke zombies for a while and Atom Zombie Smasher claims to offer me that chance. It looks fun and appears it will run on pretty much any computer. But you really have to love surf guitar music since this game is chock full of it, which is humorously suitable for an indie title like this. The zombies and other units appear to just be dots on the screen, which probably puts this game into the E10+ (Everyone 10+) category even though there will likely never be an ESRB rating for the game. (After all, ESRB ratings are not exactly cheap.) If the game is purchased through Steam, then there are Steam achievements and the game is available for both the PC and Mac platforms thanks to SteamPlay. And there appears to also be a version for Linux and a demo for each major platform.
This game is actually similar in nature to a video game I dreamed up a couple of years ago. So when this showed up and I saw just the trailer, I naturally fell in love with the concept of the game. Whether or not it plays out somewhat like what I envisioned is another story. But it is hard to go wrong with a game that offers both atomic bombs and zombies in a single package. I’ll be trying out the demo tonight to see what it is like and there is a pretty good chance I’ll pick up the full game while it is on sale.
