honestly i got this game on sale for like 99 cents but it was easily the best 99 cents i ever spent. the gameplay is simple: move left/right and shoot zambies. you can find items and junk in houses and can sell that junk to stores for money to buy weapons or keep some of the stuff for yourself if it proves to be useful. survival mode is well executed. shame everything is local multiplayer only. other than that little thing, the game is great and i'm absolutely excited for DP2.

It's River City Ransom with zombies and boring reptition. It's not terrible and it's really cheap, so if the first sentence sounds appealing, it might be worth checking out.

Dead Pixels is a pixel based shooter (I hope you already figured this out from the title). You play a guy who is trying to survive a Zombie apocalypse. You have to make your way through the world killing zombies and buying upgrades and weapons. There is a good deal of replayability as well. Multiple game modes spice up the fun even more! I am not usually a fan of zombie survival games as of late (it feels like there are a lot of them now) but I like this one. Also it reminds me a little of binding of Issac, so thats something. I would definitely recommend this to someone looking for a cheap indie game.

This is a good, fun game to play when bored. There's even co-op, so if you wanted to, you could play with one of your friends. Overall, I'd give this an 8/10.
