I've played this game before on Xbox Live, simply bought it out of respect I have for it.

This is probably THE best Indie game I played on Xbox Live (though their tags for that are shoveling all the "indie" into the crap little-no effort aisle). Otherwise I quite like this game, though I dislike they apparently made updated Melee to be weaker at some point, which seems unnecessary (especially since HP for Zombies weren't compensated it looks like).

Anyway, its worth the $3.

8-bit isometric 2d-shooter with rpg-like grading. It costs very little, and can be a reasonable buy if you are looking to enlarge your games-in-possession number. It can even be fun to play - for an hour or two (if you're still not sick of zombies and 8-bit games). The game even have coop-mode, for extra-fun with friend...
Yet I dislike it much more than "Deadly 30"or any other little game I've played recently. Why? Because I like those games finished, with all achievements unlocked. As for "dead pixels", it is not hard to unlock all... but it takes helluva time spent on stupid grinding! And even if one really fell with that game, mastered it by every means... hi-scores chart flooded with cheaters! No point to go hard on it, nobody will ever notice your effort.

In short: that game isn't bad, it just overestimated itself. Like fingerprint lock, which opens only if you click it over 9000 times.

6/10, don't start it, save your time.

Pretty nice retro game including zombies. If you are not used to these type of games it's pretty hard to play, but it is quite easy to learn after a few rounds/streets. What I did find difficuilt was the hud... I couldn't see the lower bar, at all in fact. After reasigning it in the options menu the game got a lot more interesting.

One tip: No matter the ammount of ammo you have, always go to a trader and stock up on ammo, sell all your valuables so you can take as much as you can carry. This will save you from a lot of frustrations and anxiety when you run out of bullets in between that rock and a hard place!

9/10

So I was playing this game after a hard day of getting run over and thought to myself:
"This game is quite epic. I can explode zombies heads with my Swag Rifle and use drugs to be Hella awesome."
And then I played the game as a soap-dropping black man from prison who ♥♥♥♥ed Hella ♥♥♥♥♥es back in highschool and killed Hella zombies to get out of prison.
Seemed legit.
So I used my Swag Rifle to kill Hella zombies and save the world.(Even though it blew up anyway...)
And I went to Speedway for my morning brew and saw that Happy Smurf was prohibited in their facility.
SO!
I injected Happy Smurf into my Swag Liver and this 8-bit game became an HD zombie-killing swagfest of Hella proportions.
And everything else about this game is freaking awesome as well,you just don't get to know about it until you buy it.(Which I recommend.)
One problem:
YOU CAN'T EVEN 360 NOSCOPE BRUH!

I love Dead Pixels. An amazing throwback to 8-bit games and all during a zombie outbreak. It's great and you'll want to keep playing to get further and further.

For me, this was one of those, "Its so cheap, I've nothing to lose." games.
I really like it. Its full of tongue in cheek references to a number of famous zombie franchises, most notably Resident Evil.
Its very simple (as the greats often are) and most satisfying.
Value for money is spot on, though the gameplay isn't the longest experience. A number of game modes help rectify this issue.

Worth a go.
