One of my favourite local co-op games, fantasic fun with a friend. With a cool grindhouse theme and cute pixel art, this game is a must for all couch co-op fans, especially when it can be found really cheap on sale. a fantastic retro sidescrolling take on the zombie shooter genre.
+ Fantasic couch co-op.
+ Extra difficulty options. It definitely tests your survivability skills on hardest mode when you have to cross over 10 streets with only a single shop and a ton of zombies.
+ The Solution gives a new scenario and a relatively easy way of trying out all the funky weapons as you mow down thousands of zombies.
+ Procedurally generated maps for a different experience each time you play.
+ Cute pixel art, especially when the zombie's eyes go squinty when they notice you.
+ A large selection of cool weapons and upgrades.
+ Grindhouse style and music fits very nicely.
+ Steam Achievements.
- Partial controller supported only; have to use a mouse to start up the game initially.
- The Solution game mode is fairly easy, and doesn't change when difficulty increases, only more zombies to kill, which means more money to spend on a supply of infinite ammo, grenades and guns.
- Grenades not that powerful.
- May be waiting around a while if you poke a zombie off the bottom of the screen for him to come back on. Only problematic on Survival and Time Attack modes and when fighting bosses on the Original game mode. May last forever if they are also frozen. Can be easily avoided though.
My Score: 9/10
