Age of Zombies is the latest mini from Halfbrick, the Aussie team behind PSN title Blast Off. The game has Barry Steakfries, the badass protagonist, travelling through various ages of time, blasting through hoards of zombies as he attempts to stop his evil nemesis Professor Barry Brains.
There is nothing particularly remarkable about Age of Zombies that sets it apart from the overabundance of zombie games around: dressing the zombies up as mummies or cavemen does not hide the fact that it’s another typical zombie shooter. Yet, Age of Zombies is still an incredibly moreish game that keeps clawing us back for more.
Make no mistake, zombies are fun to kill. We’ve had years of pleasure dismembering these lumbering sacks of meat. They allow us to become murderous fiends without our consciences ever getting in the way, but should we feelguilty about all those heads we’ve blown off with a rusty sawn -off shotgun? Of course not; zombies don’t have feelings – we’re doing them a favour by freeing them from the undignified situations they are in.
Nevertheless, maybe they deserve a break because they are being so over-used they’re starting to lose their impact.
Australian developers Halfbrick have announced that a new mini is on its way to the PlayStation Store titled Age of Zombies.
The splatter-fest adventure sees hero Barry Steakfries travel through the ages armed with a large stockpile of weapons as he blasts his way through a hoard of zombies.
