Similar to Faerie Solitaire, but with Zombies. No pet zombies either.

It's good. It's not real solitaire though, it's like Faerie Solitaire: you start with the card on the bottom that's a turned over card from the pack, then you have to click cards to make runs: suit doesn't matter, just next card higher or lower with wrap-around at ace. To replace the complexity of actual solitaire that's been taken out you get cards that are blocked you need to unblock and so on.

To be honest it's a bit sad how closely they copied Faerie Solitaire, which came first, but if you enjoy that game you'll probably enjoy this one too.

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) .

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.

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.

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.

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.

THE PERFECT GAME TO ADD TO YOUR COLLECTION !!! This game is great for both the Zombie fans and old fashioned Solitaire lovers alike. Like many budget games, the graphics are cartoony which is very fitting. I find myself playing this game over the others. Has various differnt options to choose from to play the game your way. Getting geared up for the next encounter is also fun with the unique action cards and tombstones to pave your way through. I can hardly believe that it is devalued by others, as this game should at the top of the holiday specials!

I like solitair games.

This one has an easy mechanic with variety in the layout of cards, and interesting extras. You play a bunch of games in one location, then move on to the next, until you get to safety from the zombies.

The zombie theme is done in a humorous way, and very amusing. And there are even brief point and click adventure-like scenes in between locations.

The interface is comfortable, and while I sometimes think an undo function would be nice, I think it is not really needed.

Very nice to play during a break, for longer, while watching TV, eating,... Whenever you'd like to play a solitair game and want something new. Even after reaching the goal, you can go back to any of the games.

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 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.

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.

Relies too much on luck, so that you are forced to use coins to get extra cards and other things that help you finish a level. That should be ok, but the game keeps getting more and more annoying because of that, making me fail many times. The zombie + solitaire idea is great, but the game loves to throw many useless cards at you, sometimes even repeating the previous card (not that rare). As I got this on a bundle, it was no big deal, but I cannot recommend buying this game.

Back when I was a broke-♥♥♥ kid my only gaming option was my grandma's PC. It was a 386, and my choice of games were limited to the bargain bin at Wal-mart. Still, I got to play a lot of games that would influence my interests as I got older.

Castle of the Winds - Got me interested in rogue-likes, and then loot-heavy action-RPGs (Diablo, Torchlight, Path of Exile).
The Bard's Tale - Naturally it led me into other dungeon crawlers like Elminage, Etrian Odyssey, and so on.
Wolfenstein - Enough said.

And then there is good ol' Windows Solitaire....I hated that game so much. When I got bored of everything else it was back to Solitaire. You know that saying: Wherever you go, there you are. That's how I feel when I play Solitaire, it's such a depressing game. Today I own an Xbox 360, a WiiU, a Playstation 3, a PC that can play most anything, a 3DS, a Vita, and a freakin' Japanese Saturn. Next year I'll probably get a PS4, but you know what? None of that ♥♥♥♥ matters.

Because I'm reviewing a ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ Solitaire game right now. I just can't get away....I....just...can't....get.... ARGH!

As a bonus this game is called Zombie Solitaire. It's like my own personal hell. Zombies used to be cool, but when rotting undead that eats brains is somehow as kid-friendly as Strawberry Shortcake, you know something's wrong. Personally I'd rather the zombie apocalypse actually happen so I'll never see these freakin' games ever again.

Where was I? Oh right...I'm reviewing a game or something.

Zombie Solitaire has all of the qualities of a Solitaire game, it is addictive as hell, and it kills your productivity. Unfortunately ZS isn't even a better game than the Solitaire that came with your copy of Windows (Unless you're a Win8 user). No it's not just because it has zombies in it. ZS doesn't work because it's a bland overly-safe vanilla soft version of Solitaire. It's good at wasting your time, and not much else.

(This paragraph was originally an overly-long explanation of how Solitaire works.) Basically the goal is to get rid of all the cards

Zombie Solitaire adds a bunch of stuff. First off there's a store where you can buy special cards and tombstones. Tombstones are numbered cards (2-9) and you can use them whenever necessary. Special cards are straight up cheats. My personal favorite is the sudden strike, which simply destroys all of the cards, making you the winner. This is just plain silly because ZS has a ranking system, and even if you use the sudden strike, you still get the best rank. Sure they're expensive but money is easy to come by. Sure you know you cheated, but the game doesn't treat it as such. By the way, getting the best ranks in Zombie Solitaire is not at all brag-worthy.

Even without the overpowered cards, this game is still too easy. About 90% of Solitaire games are winnable, so it stands to reason that luck plays a factor. Zombie Solitaire has tons of levels, but there's still randomness to the cards that are dealt. The later levels are supposed to be more difficult, but if I get a good deal, then it's all rendered moot. At least Windows Solitaire tracks your wins & losses. Plus it captures the main appeal of the game, the combination of logic & luck. It's dealing with potential worst-case scenarios, decision-making, regret, and ultimately despair.

YMMV however. I spent far too much of my free-time playing Window Solitaire, and have become jaded because of it. If you're looking for a way to kill time, this is a decent way to do so. I'm not hip to the PC Solitaire scene, so I don't know if there's some Ultimate Solitaire 2014 simulator or whatever, but if you want something different, you could probably do better than Zombie Solitaire.

It's kind of cute but very pointless. The solitaire has some nice features but is far too dependent on luck. There are cute little "how would you kill the zombies" interstitials, but they are far too short, simple, and few and far between. It's a lot of good ideas but not nearly enough implementation.

Okay for a short while, but when I reached the bridge the gameplay wore thin. With some funny artwork and a decent theme, this is an interesting variation on the solataire game. But is it better than playing plain vanilla solataire? Not really.
