Fun little variant on Solitaire, but not worth the full asking price. I got this on a super sale, so I'm not disappointed. I wouldn't pay over $2 for this. Buy it if you have Trading Card Steam Wallet money to burn, and if it's on a big sale. Either that, or if it's part of a bundle.

Good, simple time killer. Good for kids as well.

Note: don't expect it to be normal Solitaire.

zombie solitaire is not a terrible game. you get your standard solitaire gameplay with a zombie theme and good enough artwork, there are even point & click sections, albeit very basic ones, before entering each area, and there are 103 levels to play through, so you should be entertained for a few hours. or you would be if it weren't for a few issues.

what little music there is isn't that bad, but it gets repetitve really fast and the sound effects aren't great either, so I turned both off pretty soon, something I hardly ever do. replaying levels is kind of a pain too, because once you complete one, the replay button disappears, so it's either back to the menu or clicking the menu button, selecting replay, etc. and if you're going for a perfect (3-star) rating on the first level of a new location, be prepared to get annoyed even more because you can't skip the p&c sections, you have to do them every single time you start those levels.

an even bigger annoyance is that as soon as you reveal the last card in the deck and it's not usable, it's game over, even if you have tombstones (replacement cards) you could use. the solution? have at least one power card on you at all times (you can buy these with the money you collect), but preferably more. this way the game asks you if you want to continue using power cards and/or tombstones, even though, like I said, having only tombstones doesn't let you do this. and even this is not perfect, because as soon as you use up all your power cards, it's game over for good, even if you could still use a few tombstones.

also, it seemed to me that the way levels are randomized, they want you to use power cards, otherwise you'll fail more often than not. getting enough money to buy them won't be an issue even if you use them liberally, you'll be swimming in coins like scrooge mcduck in no time, but I think these cards are really overpowered and cheap, so some self-restraint might come in handy, otherwise you'll blow through the game pretty fast. the existence of an instant win card is really baffling too, you can buy them after level 50.

these are all issues you may or may not find that bad and if you love solitare as much as I do, you'll want to play zombie solitaire anyway, but if you're only looking for some of the better ones (the best being fairway, sadly not available on steam), you can skip this.

There are no resolution options; you can't open in windowed mode, only fullscreen. Has a fatal glitch involving the fullscreen display. When you can see the game runnning, the display is tiny, and fixed in the upper corner of the screen. It also cuts off much of what you should be seeing which means you can't see important bits of the UI. When you run the game in other compatibility modes, you can't see the game running at all. There's no way around this glitch. You'll find reports of it in the community discussions. If support were coming, that would be one thing, but there has never been an update to this game, and there likely never will be one. This glitch obviously doesn't affect everyone, but I can only speak to my own expereinces. Based on that, I can't recommend the game in case you end up in the same boat I'm in: having bought an unplayable game.

It's pretty much exactly what it looks like: variations on pyramid solitaire with a zombie theme. Progressing through the levels lets you travel along the path to escape from the zombies and get to a safe place. In addition to the varied layouts of each level, there are also various powerups you can buy in the shop which unlock as you progress, and which occasionally show up on the game board itself. While doing well (making long combinations and winning the level) will net you a large number of coins with which to buy the powerups, even losing a level will gain you some amount, meaning it's unlikely you will ever be stuck on a level for long. The powerups can be anything from a single card to help you bridge a gap between the showing card and what's on the table, to clearing an entire column of cards with a bowling ball, or even just an outright "I win" button for the level that clears everything. While I felt like the powerups made the game a bit too easy, it's likely that with over 100 levels, I would have gotten bored of the game and given up before I completed it, given the random nature of the levels and the probability that I would have needed to restart many of them repeatedly to win. Overall, I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys solitaire that wants to try a new twist on a familiar game.

I'm not going to sit here and explain how to play Solitaire to you. That was a rite of my childhood back when Windows 3.1 was cutting edge technology and it is sacred to my people.

What I will tell you is that ZOMBIE SOLITAIRE only loosely resembles traditional Solitaire and I guess for that at least, the developers deserve some credit. It's become pretty easy to sell something in this day and age by plastering the living dead all over it and some limited effort has gone into making the game bright, playable and attractive in a kind of third party PopCap clone sort of way.

Ultimately though, it's pretty pointless. You steam through 103 practically identical levels, revealing a redundant story as you go, with the only saving grace being that gold coins are easy to come by and can purchase you power-ups in the game's store. One of these, Sudden Strike, is basically a nuclear strike that wins the stage for you instantly. I mean, most of the other cards will win the round for you too but they'll at least have the decency to make you arbitrarily click a few times to get there. Sudden Strike just wipes its backside with everything on screen, gives you a perfect three star rating that you will forever know that you didn't earn and dumps a busload of coins on you to go buy another one.

Zombie Solitaire is one of those strange games that feels like it was designed for a mobile Pay-2-Win model and then had its difficulty scaled right back to utterly impotent levels for the PC release. Then again, I guess if the point of your title is to rob people blind then yeah, £4.99's pretty criminal. Good job.

This is a decent card game, but it's a knock-off of the superior Faerie Solitaire. It's a spin on solitaire with various obstacles on the board. You unbury certain cards from the stacks to remove the obstacles. You collect coins from playing and can use them in the shop to buy power-ups. There are also power-ups given for free randomly throughout the levels.

This game went with a zombie spin to appeal to the huge zombie market, but left out the magical creatures from Faerie Solitaire, which was something extra on the side.

You almost need to buy power-ups in this game to succeed. The cards don't feel sufficiently randomized in Zombie Solitaire. I run the chance of seeing far more rows with an 8 at the bottom, for example, than seems realistic. Then the hand I'm dealt to work from just won't give up any 7s or 9s. This is where it seems to favor power-ups. The gain of in-game currency seems decent, however, so this isn't a huge deal (at least in the early level 20s. But I'm already seeing a reliance of turning to these boosts.

Ultimately, I passed on this one after about 90 minutes in. It's not a bad game. Faerie Solitaire is just a better version.

This game has simpler mechanics than actual solitaire.

...A-K-Q-J-10-9-8-...-2-A-K

Using this sequence u try to eliminate all cards, both in your deck and in the screen. Colors do not matter. There are some locked cards which can be opened by "raven repellers"and "machetes" which are also cards, hidden in elsewhere in screen. And for each 15 chapters, you got a minor point and click puzzle, which is either too simple to be called a puzzle, or just glitched.

Sounds really simple right. And I know this is not a problem in itself, since no one expects Dominions 4 when trying to buy a game called "Zombie Solitaire". So, what is the problem? Actually there are three problems.

1) First, game algorithm is not well designed, so you can fail even with perfect moves. Random generation mostly works well, but you can lose the game by just random generation. When you win a level, the game claims, "Level Solved", but actually you are not guaranteed that there really is a solution always.

2) Saying this, finding optimal moves is not that hard. Optimal move can be deduced by following steps. If you do a mistake, it is not because you were not able to think through or something, it is mostly because of that you misclicked.
1) Check how many possible moves exist for each turn.
2) If there is only one, do it.
3) If there is more than one, check combo possibilities. Pick the best one. But since, you can not predict what will you encounter after your move, that is mostly redundant.
4) If everything is equal, try to use the cards from columns with more cards in it.

3) Designers knew how shallow are the mechanics, and how bad is their generation algorithm, so they implemented an additional mechanic. Buying gravestones to use an additional, free to use deck, and special power cards that can be used for eliminating a single card, making all cards visible, eliminating a column, and.... ELIMINATING ALL OF THE LEVEL.

So, if you are deceived by game's being a puzzle ambition -like me- you will mostly skip buying this special cards, since they kill the very purpose of finding optimal moves. I just bought some graveyards until getting nearer to halfway through. Then I realized, these levels were not designed for being played as a puzzle. You NEED to buy those special powers. If you suck with the game, you NEED to buy better cards, so grinding is incentivized. BY grinding, I am meaning losing the same level over and over again with no hope of winning, just to please developers that you had enough of that. Or, if you are a better player, you will hit the wall at a later stage, with 150000 gold in at your disposal.

What is the optimal strategy then? You will check Shop, it includes a card, as I said that eliminates all cards in the level, effectively skipping a level. When is the optimal time to start a shopping spree, just skipping all of the remaning levels? Doing this in the last 25 levels is exactly the threshold that finishes the game with no money remaining. Where am I getting to? This game is the only game I have, whose developers knew that their game is so bad, they actually put a mechanic to skip last 25~30 chapters! Almost 1/3 of the whole game.

With better generation, with some differentiation between raven cards, and jungle cards, and with redesigning of shop concept, making their use optional to pass the levels, but making them fun to use without causing massive difficulty decline, this might have been a better game that will fit the average expectation of the buyer. Now, what I see is, just a mish mash of two words with high marketability with no real effort put on mechanics.

Avoid. I spent 6 hours to say this. You can safely ignore this title, even if you are actually a necrophilia, or a hardcore solitaire fan. And if you are actually a hardcore solitaire fan, please add me as a friend, since I have not meet one.

Nice to meet you. Have a good day.

This is a cute game and it has good idea be hide but it's very poorly put together. You don't even have an option to change the screen resolution, you have 16:9, 4:9 or Windowed which is playable but will strain your eyes after a little bit if you’re on 1920 by 1080 resolution. But I got this game for a couple of pennies so not really too bothered…

All in all, alright game but poorly executed.

A cute enough game for what it is; but very short. It has only what amounts to a campaign mode, where each successful game advances you through a simple story. But the replay value after finishing, is just not there. There is no need for most of the capabilities you can buy in the game store. The interactive cut scenes where you have to click on the correct object instead of playing solitaire, are ridiculously easy, and completely pointless.

In this version of solitaire you move field cards onto the discard pile, which is the opposite to most forms of solitaire i've seen before. You've won if you can discard all of the field cards. It is enjoyable enough and would be fun to play occasionally if a non campaign mode had been provided.

As it stands, you might get an hour or two of fun out of this title. 2/5

Nothing fantastic going on with this game. Surely not worth $7. If you enjoy casual card games this might be a way to spice things up. Timer is off, I honestly couldn't play this game more than 1 hour.

Worth $0.99

Doesn't have the charm of a Faerie Solitaire by a huge margin, but if you want something in that vein, this is easily a decent time-waster. (Specifically: this thing gives me nasty draws quite often. I've lost 4-5 cards at the beginning of a round because they offer me no moves. Just hit restart out the gate if that's the case.)

It's gimmick solitaire, you already know if you want this or not whether I tell you so. It's just going to lock a lot of powerups until you hit later levels as its main trick.

edit: Playing on, this game... doesn't seem confident in itself as a solitaire game. It even adds little hidden-object puzzles between some stages to make you "continue", or keeps deck selection (DECK SELECTION of all things!!) locked behind stage progression. Guh.

This game is a zombie cash in, and rip off of other better solitaire games. Background art feels like stock images with some zombies pasted in. The "shop" part feels like it was supposed to be a cash shop for noobs in a mobile game. Points and gold make no sense what so ever, you'll have plenty all the time unless you suck at solitaire. Fixed unchangeable resolution. Frame rate capped at 50FPS leads to jerky game-play on 60FPS screens. "Run" mechanic is totally worthless. Why would I ever run when there is no timer, it reduces my score, and there is no consequence for not running? No Replay button for when you pass a level but didn't get the best rating. Confusing interface, very unclear what's clickable and not. Levels auto end even when you have wildcards which could get you a perfect score, thus meaning the level must be repeated to get a perfect score. No achievements.

This game is a result of a programmer saying I can code solitaire and zombies are in, and then I can totally shovel this onto Steam. The programmer wishes they were Popcap, but fails to even be half as good. The programmer of this game simply doesn't get what makes a tight, enjoyable game with a bit of a challenge. I'm shocked at how many casual gaming noobs think this garbage is good.

This game is actually pretty good. It is exactly what it says, basic solitare with zombie cards. You can buy some "powerups" from the shop with money you can get from playing the game, cards that will eliminate a pile of cards, zombie types etc. The game also has a few sections of the hidden objects/map type things, I was not a fan of those, but luckily they werent too long. All in all, a good solid solitare game, but with zombies.

Just finished all the levels and it is an ok game (good for wasting some time). If you like card games its a solid game, I got it in a bundle (I think) awhile back. I cant see buying it at full price but on sale or in a bundle its worth a look. Its one of those games you wish steam had a sideways thumb for. my only major complaint is the last level once you are done with it nothing you just replay the last level over and over. (kinda of expected somekind of ending). overall ok game, good time waster.

Picked this up in a Bundle Stars pack, happy I did! Very fun, cute graphics, a bit more than simply playing spider solitare. Very addicting. Definitely a great investment for a casual game to play while I watch TV. :D

I actually prefer this one over the often compared Faerie Solitaire. Not because of game play, but because on my 26" monitor Zombie Solitaire has clear, crisp images. Faerie Solitaire has less quality images that give me a headache after playing for a short while.

Zombie Solitaire needs achievements (cards would be good, too) .

So, a while ago, one of my Steam friends bought Faerie Solitare (you know who you are). That game looked good, with lots of unlockables, achievements, and Steam trading cards, but the faeries theme didn't really appeal to me. Then I saw this game. It looked like it was basically the same game as Faerie Solitare, but with a zombie theme. I also thought it was by the same company, so it too would have unlocables, achievements, etc. I threw it on my wishlist, and once it went on sale, I snapped it up.

I guess I need to pay more attention and/or do a bit more research before buying anything. The game is *not* by the same company that made Faerie Solitare, and is in fact kind of a ripoff of that game. Although the game plays well, and there are some powerups to unlock and purchase, there are NO achievements or trading cards. The zombie theme does add some entertainment value, and even at full price the game is cheaper than Faerie Solitare, so I guess the lack of extras is somewhat justified.

All in all, the game does play well, and there are things to unlock in game, even if there aren't any achievements or trading cards. So, if you like zombies and think a solitare game based on them sounds fun, go ahead. Just don't expect too much.

My rating: 7 out of 10. It does what it sets out to do, but is nothing special. Buy it on sale if you like zombies and solitare.

So, if zombies eat people, and we play solitaire by our lonesome - does that mean we are eating ourselves?!?!

Ok, if you liked Faerie Solitaire, chances are you will like this game.

I imagine that this game will have me for at leats 50 hours once I have pefected each part of it. It does not have all of the features to it that Faerie Solitarie does; but there is plenty here to keep you entertained for hours. This solitaire version does have features to remove stubborn cards or be able to continue sequence of play. In between every couple of levels you get a rather easy mini-point-and-click style story element to keep things moving. If you like solitaire style games and silly cartoon zombies; then this game is for you. Even at $7 you will easily get your monies worth of play time from it. And if you get it from a bundle; then you will even get more value for your buck.

Like others have state this game is ok for a card game. Nothing stands out like in Faerie Solitare. If your looking for a great card then Faerie Solitare is the better game. The issue I have is that while it does nothing bad per se it doesnt do a lot of great or interesting ideas either.

The zombie idea was interesting however they fail to do anything interesting with the idea. Its basically you have cards and can go up or down in value. So the 2 card you would need a 3 or an ace to play that card. If you dont have a card you need you draw from your deck. You can buy some powerups that reveal cards or get rid of cards. The graphics are good and the music while not great is ok.

I just feel like the entire game is a missed opportunity. It lacks a hook like Faerie Solitare has with their pet collecting. You do get to play little mini games but they are short. The regular price seems very high to me. I got this in a bundle along with 5 other games. No achiements or steam trading cards and looks like this game will never have them.

Someone made a suggestion via email and it was a big nope were a small company and dont have time. However they do have enough time to advertise there latest Green Light game. Found this out in the Steam Forums. If I had to rate it 7/10. Not bad but doesnt do anything special.

Zombie Solitaire is a novelty solitaire game with a little bit of Point & Click adventure cut scenes. You match up cards in ascending/descending order (card suit ignored). During progression of the game, you can buy power up items that vary from completely necessary to absolute cheaty. The more powerful the powerup, the more you pay for it. However, money is somewhat irrevelant due to the fact you gain money almost every game you play, regardless of how well you do. Sometimes it is nice to have an absolute cheaty power up if you start getting frusturated.

Ultimately the game is what you make of it. I would prefer to play something like this over a social media equivalent, being that I don't have to bug my friends for power ups, or buy power ups with my own money. On the other hand, the game is pretty flimsy over all. If you enjoy it, try Faerie Solitaire by Subsoap.

I also want to add that although most would say it is suitable for all ages, I do understand that some parents will be concerned with the fact that they do have elements of fantasy violence, as well as images and sounds of firearms. Something to note if you are buying this game for a child.

Zombie Solitaire, what can i tell you about it?
Its solitaire, you could get a free (one of many many free) one with every Windows.
Whats different about this one that you should buy it? (I got it from a bundle)
It can't be the story...some still images.
Well I can't find a reason to buy it. Everything (and i finished it just to be sure) you can find in other
games, the shop were you can spend your points and even buy an instant win, the 2 different blocks on
some cards that you first must overcome win,
If there were some archivements, but there is nothing. Add that the game is very easy (hey, i just played
105 levels in under 6 hours).

It's quite a fun game, but there are quite a few bugs and mistakes which for such a simple game makes it really expensive if you are paying 5 quid. The "Dutch" flag in the game is actually the Russian flag, the Dutch is really bad so I switched back to English but for the rest I've been enjoying it so far. Simple yet fun, but in retrospect a bit too expensive for what you get.

Buy this game if you enjoy playing solitaire and killing zombies. The humor and cartoony graphics are what make this game fun to play. You kill zombies by removing cards. You can purchase a maximum of three special cards like wild cards at once. The special cards and the search for hidden items between the levels make this game more fun to play than a typical game of solitaire. I thought this game would be really short. I thought there would be a maximum of 25 levels at most. There are 103 levels. The levels become more difficult because of the way the decks are arranged. There are also special cards in the decks that make the game more difficult. Something else I like about this game is that it was designed to work with wide-screen monitors. Most solitaire games have stretched graphics and blurry details if you try to use a wide-screen monitor to play them. Try to finish a level without buying an extra deck of cards from the shop. That's the real challenge of this game.

4/10 - Borderline, Average, Regs

Nothing fantastic going on with this game. Surely not worth $7. If you enjoy casual card games this might be a way to spice things up. Timer is off, I honestly couldn't play this game more than 1 hour.

Worth $0.99
