About the Game

Containment: The Zombie Puzzler is an action puzzle game like you’ve never seen before. The goal of Containment is to surround zombies with survivors of the same color. But watch out for the zombies—they'll fight back by infecting the survivors in the street. Through the game's pulse-pounding campaign and multiple survival modes, you'll use your wits, items you find you along the way, and even the town around you to contain the zombie outbreak.

Key Features:

  • Not a Match 3 In Containment, you don’t match three of anything—you eliminate zombies by surrounding them with survivor tiles.
  • These Tiles are Alive Each tile is a fully animated character that interacts not just with its fellow survivors and zombies, but also with the environment.
  • Unique Storytelling There's no time for cutscenes or dialog boxes when the undead are trying to eat you—the story of Franklin County and its survivors is told through in-world text as you make your escape through what's left of the city.
  • Real-Time/Turn-Based Containment combines the cerebral strategy of a puzzle game with all the real-time action you'd expect from a zombie attack.
  • WMD’s Playing the game well rewards you with useful items that you can use against the zombie horde to devastating effect.
  • The Environment is Your Friend Franklin itself becomes a weapon as you knock over signs, power up heavy cranes, and roll cars over zombies.
  • Boss battles Yeah, that’s right. We even have boss battles. You haven’t seen zombies like these before.

It's a pretty simple game. Pretty quick to beat but the survival mode gives it some extra playability. Yes it's like Bejeweled and some other puzzlers with it's own little twists on the classic puzzler genre.

I'm sorry, you got lost on the way to the game you were actually looking for. Your typo led you to "Containment: The Zombie Puzzler", a poor title involving tile-swaps to surround and destroy zombies, when in fact you actually wanted "Girls Like Robots".

Common mistake, you should head that way now if you want to play something in this vein which isn't groaningly simple or cheaply designed.

Decent little puzzler with an amusing bit of tale-telling to it. Not just the usual match 3 , the mechanic is baout creating barriers of matching pieces. There are a good few item drops, which you keep between levels, adding to the tactical depth. Also there are a lot of environmental elements which you (or the enemy) can use. Theer are not too many levels, and each one seems to have been carefully hand-crafted, rather than just thrown together randomly. If you like puzzles, get it at 50% off, or cheaper.
