"A bit biased here :) Still if you want a game for short bursts this is a good option. Just one well placed bullet creates waves of exploding zombies."

About This Game

OMG! Alert! Alert! The City of Redfield has been hit by an outbreak of exploding zombies! For cool and unimportant reasons these suckers literally explode when shot, showering their zombie brethren with gore and causing chain reactions of showering zombie gibs with just a single bullet!
As a lone cop armed only with bare wit, a large-calibre sniper rifle and bullets coated in a zombie-exploding pathogen, you are the last man standing at the epicentre of a zombie outbreak. Your mission? To succeed where the police and army failed by clearing the streets of 8 different strains of bloodthirsty zombies and stop Armageddon in its tracks!

Use your sharpshooting skills to vanquish 100 branching levels of zombie hell across 40 unique environments in this hugely addictive chain reaction shooter. Earn 400 shiny medals and cold hard cash to buy 100 different upgrades, all designed to MAKE THOSE ZOMBIES EXPLODE!

OMG Zombies is an awesome reimagining of a genuine classic: the critically acclaimed OMG-Z, a top-ten all-time Metacritic rated PSP game and ranked as Metacritic’s best action title ever released on PSP! The guys at Push Square gave it 89% and called it “a must buy” game, Escape Rope claimed it’s “...one of the best zombie games in recent memory” and Defunct Games gave it an A rating saying it’s “so addictive... I still can't get enough of watching the explosive chain reaction caused from a well-placed bullet.”

Now the new and improved OMG Zombies features completely redrawn HD graphics, more gore, more levels, more upgrades and all-new content including 12 trophies, 100+ leaderboards, a 20-stage ‘Prestige’ system and 5 beautifully illustrated endings.

You've got a maximum of 6 bullets to kill 100 zombies. Make each one of them count and enjoy the symphony of exploding gibs! Now that's a puzzle game!

This game is the type of game that I would call pick up and play (or 10 minute gameing) and for that it is perfect. I find my self popping on to the game doing a level then trying to baet my high socre a few times and then going off to do something eles and then retuning late again to try and get that high score.
But what is the game well its best descriped as a puzzle game, in each level its your goal to kill all the zombies but you only have a limited amount of bullets so every shot counts, this may seem like a tall order but luckaly the zombies explode casing a chain and better the chain the more zombie you can kill with one bullet. Though its not just the standard zombies casing a threat there are different type of zombies out there for example one type zombie when killed shots a gun and if that bullet hits any zombie they then get killed crating the chain . to help with this you can press the v button and see all the different types of zombie By Colour this helps in making strategic moves .
Over all I find the game a very fun time killer (pun intended) and at the time of writing this review it is very hard not to recommend at the price but even at normal price i would highly recommend OMG Zombies! but be warned it wll eat up your time

This game made me blind in my left eye. No joke.

I discovered OMG Zombies! on the PSP, which only has a screen size of 4.3 inches. I am 47 years old, which means my eyes don't work as well as they used to. I should have known better. This game is so addictive that I literally spent somewhere in the neighborhood of eight to ten hours playing it. Continuous. I finished the game, deleted my save, finished the game, deleted my save, and kept right on playing. As a result, I had a massive headache, and the inner lining of my left eye separated, as the ophthalmologist put it, "like peeling off a sticker." My eye filled with thousands of tiny, black dots (which were actually quite beautiful and which, I later was told, was blood inside the eye). It required laser surgery to repair, and I was told to avoid using the eye and not to lift anything. Two weeks later, it separated again (because I was being foolish and started using the PSP again). I told you all of that in order to tell you this: I regret nothing.

Nothing!

OMG Zombies (which I've just found on Steam in a bundle that did not interest me, but which I had to purchase just in order to share my opinion of the game) is one of those games that offers amazingly simple mechanics, but creative, open-ended strategy (okay, strategy-lite). You are in the middle of a zombie apocalypse, you only have three bullets (to start), and you need to completely clear the area of dozens --sometimes, hundreds-- of zombies. Sounds impossible, and it would be were it not for the fact that there are many different types of zombies, and each type behaves differently. Some explode, some shoot rounds off upon dying, some dissolve into pools of acidic goo that, in turn, dissolve any zombie that steps into said pool. Clearing each area awards a bronze, silver, gold, or platinum medal and, with it, different monetary bonuses that allow you to upgrade the zombies, yourself, or the environment (such as exploding barrels). As the levels progress, zombies gain hit points (requiring more damage to kill), and different combinations of zombie type, as well as environmental hazards, appear. You can replay each area to try to gain a higher award.

Let me tell you this: There are few things more satisfying than selecting one specific zombie, firing off a round, and watching it set off a chain reaction that decimates every (un)living thing on the screen. So powerful was the need to do this, that I kept resetting after completion to see if I could handicap myself. How far could I get in the game without purchasing a single powerup (pretty far, as it turns out, although killing every zombie in the area is all but impossible)? Could I successfully complete the game upgrading only soldier zombies? What if I played the game while only upgrading my weapon?

Digital crack, I say. Blind in one eye. BLIND in one eye!! And still, I played.

The Steam version adds three more zombie types (the Mortar, Runner, and Zapper), and the graphic novel story presentation, which offers some beautiful artwork, has been expanded. All of that said, the Steam version unfortunately suffers in its execution (no pun intended). The design of the PSP version is one of the most elegant and sleek I've seen; it's intuitive, and virtually everything you need to see is on one screen. On Steam, it's clunky, waaaay oversized, and confusing. Not only that, but the display resolutions are extremely odd (640x362, 1024x580, and 1920x1088, to name a few), resulting in a level select screen that you can't completely see, no matter the resolution, no matter if the game is fullscreen or windowed. On the PSP, it was easy to tell what upgrades did; here, it's difficult and unintuitive, and that's coming from someone who's played it before (have I mentioned I've played this before?). (EDIT: I've discovered that you can click and drag the level select screen. Maybe a mouseover tooltip would be appropriate for the next patch?)

Still, confusing layout aside, this is a must purchase if this kind of quick-to-pick-up-but-hard-to-put-down game play is your thing (and I suspect you already know if it is). The price is right and, as I said at the start of this review, it's currently bundled for much less. Either way, I'm playing.

Until I lose both my eyes.

(Just a quick note to give the dev peace of mind: My eye is almost completely healed now. :) No lawsuit is pending, and you have my eternal gratitude for creating such a great game.

You b*st*rd.)

I had a great time with this game initially. Exploding zombies, barrels and pure fragging. Unfortunately as I made my way through the levels to gain acheivements it became very monotonous. I actually had periods of madness and frustration trying to get platinum on some of the levels. Once I completed the game I come to find "prestige"... After taking 10hrs to complete this game already, which is waaay to much. Now, they want me to do it 5 and 20 times again respectively for the 2 remaining acheivements. Thats just ridiculous. That took me right away from the game and left a bad taste in my mouth. It seems they were trying to increase the life span of a game which is quick and simple. It should have been left that way. Which, in the end made me angry and was a huge mistake.

เกมยิงซอมบี้แนวใช้สมอง ส่วนตัวแล้วเกมนี้สนุกใช้ได้ เล่นไม่ยากไม่ง่าย แต่ใหม่ๆอาจจะยาก โดยเรารับบทเป็นตำรวจที่ต้องยิงซอมบี้ให้มันระเบิดไปโดนตัวอื่นๆจนกว่ากระสุนจะหมด และมีให้อัพเกรดกระสุนและตัวซอมบี้

คะแนน 8/10

It's like a flash game called Infectionator. Kill zombies and buy upgrades. Okay... maybe just like Infectionator...

Fun, concise, appropriately ridiculous title. A FANTASTIC deal at $5 despite the gameplay graphics being meh. I think the developer(s) is/are a traditional artist with game art aspriations because the graphic novel is brief but a nice touch and the logo/title is gloriously refined. The game really commits to what it wants to do without any apologies for what it is, what's expected of it or what it's missing. Bottom line: it does what it does well and it's $5 without being on sale at the time of this writing. You can finish this game in about 4 hours if you want to do the minimum, likely 6 hours for most folks but (of course) going back and getting gold or platinum rankings on all 100 scenarios will likely double its value if you're into that.

I like:
+ puzzler with zombie background
+ stages with zombie random groups
+ 100 upgrades
+ clever leveldesign
+ good background music
+ 100 levels
+ 20 prestige grades

dont like:
- weak backdrop
- dependent on luck


The allure of the game is in its simplicity – shoot a zombie and it blows up. If another zombie is in close enough proximity, it too will explode and so forth.
you must clear enough zombies from the screen to earn a medal and continue to the next level.
With each medal, you earn cash to spend on upgrading your weapon and your zombie’s abilities.

cant get enough of this chain reaction splatter destruction :)


Sorry for my bad english. This is my review account, because the low playtime.
Thanks for reading! If you Like my Review, give me a Thumbs up in Steam.
Your help is greatly appreciated :)

Nope. Don't buy it.

A clone of the Flash game-series Infectonator, but does nothing better or even as good as Infectonator. Sadly a huge disappointment as a game.

The comic strips explaining the story are lovely, very nice art style.

The main problem with it, aside from the poor amount of gameplay, is that it's an obvious tablet game not made for a desktop computer. The developers really need to redesign or at the very least resize the UI and other elements to fit for a desktop game.

Barely worth the $2 I paid for it.

Another instance of a mediocre flash game making it's way to steam, OMG Zombies is a perfect example of Valve's incredibly lacking quality control.

The premise is standard click n' watch affair, where you click on one of a handful of zombie types and watch 'em wreak havoc on the rest, the point being to destroy all zombies with the fewest amount of bullets. The game is surprisingly slow and plodding, even given the genre, and it looks absolutely terrible. It's supposed to have your standard indie pixel graphics, but instead it just looks like it's been stretched way too far to look even remotely good.

The same premise has been done countless times, for free, and in better fashion, too. There is absolutely no reason to pay for something lesser than the free flash games that can be found on Kongregate.com.

If you get it on sale, this is worth the price. It's a fun little casual game, shoot zombies and try to get them to chain react. I've beat the game, it's not a serious game, watch the trailer if you are still wondering.

I feel slightly cheated (though I didnt read the description or any reviews or look at any pictures) rather than zombie shooting action this is more akin to Bust-a-move or Bobble Puzzle. (which I suppose is ok)

OMG Zombies is a funny little puzzle shooter where the aim is to shoot all zombies on the screen and preferably with as less shots fired as possible. The game works like when the different zombies is shot theres a different reaction that will create a chain reaction killing the surrounding zombies like exploding, acid,elctrical and shooting and so on. well omg zombies doesnt has the greatest graphics or the greatest sound but it does have a great gameplay and it gets quite addictive. but eventhough the graphics isnt the greatest they are funny and fits the game well ill recommend this game like a good break from more demanding games. when that is said and as i have completed the game by now im not sure theres much replay value in it but i did enjoy it as long as it lasted. 7.5/10

First of all, OMG Zombies! is a puzzle game. A bit crazy, random-generated, puzzle game where winning is based on a well-calculated and timed click and the ensuing chaos. Your success is ultimately dictated on that crucial first click and statistics. Oh, and there are a lot of zombies too.

That tickles your interest? Basically, in each level you find yourself somewhere high, surrounded by zombies and with limited ammunition. Each zombie has a special power triggered on their death, like explosion or acid pool or shooting a weapon. With just a few bullets, you have to kill as many zombies as possible, preferably all of them.

This is difficult at first. Then you begin to see patterns within the horde and also accumulate money from winning levels, so it gets easier as you can upgrade your weapon and the zombies. It's left unclear how the zombies can be made stronger, but somehow that happens when you pump enough money in them. Whatever really, as it surely is surprisingly addictive. Several times I decided that the next level would be the last but then kept on playing regardless.

There's also a story. No, it's not very detailed or good, but it explains where the zombies came from and why you find yourself in this dire situation. Also, it's told in an artsy comic manner, so it's cool and it works well for this game. The whole game is drawn in greyscale, except the blood that's (you guessed it) red and everywhere. The unique style works well. Sounds are repetitive and uninteresting, but the cacophony of them can be amusing when you pull a great combo.

For me it lasted 8 hours for the first playthrough (100% completion until first prestige). That brings me to the one thing that kind of bugs me: there's a bad case of "that achievement" in this game, as to earn the last achievement you have to (you get to?) beat the game completely (100%) 20 times. That's going to take a while. I'd recommend the game regardless as it's cheap and fun. It's also a good game to go to when you're waiting for something but only got a few minutes to spare as it's fast to play through just a few levels.

I recently received the gift of a Steam card - though I could've used cash over it, I still love Steam cards. Why? Because they're ONLY good for Steam, only good for games, only good for an escape. OMG Zombies! was something I never picked up because I figured it would be just like every other shoot-zombie run-around eventually-die game that's already out there.

I was entirely wrong. I normally write extremely long reviews that cover everything about a game from length to fun factor to soundtrack to graphics. Literally everything. I can't speak for the music. I've played this game exactly once. My playtime? One day. The game is very huge. It's extremely addictive. I would make a long review for it, but I'm afraid if I don't play it through to 100%, my brain might literally explode. I also used some of my Steam card funds to buy it for several funds. Why?

This is the best indie Zombie killing game on Steam

OMG is right. Whether you're in for sitting at a game for hours or for a few minutes, this fits the bill, and is so friggin' addictive. Yes, yes, yes. Worth twice its normal asking price. Underrated, awesome.

99/10.
