What is Super Zombies Again?

Super Zombies Again is a twin-stick shooter from PXLink, the folks that brought you the great platformer Reed. Players are tasked with collecting boxes as they defend themselves from an onslaught from a rampaging zombie horde. Each time you pick up a box your score goes up, and you weapon randomly changes. That means that the revolver you were mowing down zombies with to get to your box might now be a katana, SMG, rocket launcher, or one of the game’s other weapons. Enough boxes collected and you unlock a new character. There is nothing beyond that at the time of this review.

Recommendation

Super Zombies Again would be an above average game if it had more content. At the moment it just feels incredibly repetitive. The random weapon mechanic is a nice touch, and it lends the game some depth as you plan your approach to each box with the possible outcomes in mind. The movement and shooting controls are what you would expect (and need) for a competent twin stick shooter, and the game also includes the option for static on-screen joysticks. At the end of the day it’s a simple game without a lot to do and nothing to get you hooked.
