i'm not that big on top-down shooters but when they don't support widescreen or let me change the controls then what reason do i have to play them? it felt pointless and monotonous by the fourth level or so, and the view-obstructing walls and eventually getting stuck next to a bunk made me quit this game instead of trying to finish it.

You shoot zombies in this game. And zombie dogs. And rats. I can't tell if the rats are zombies. I'm just assuming they're rats.

I think this game is supposed to be like the old Crusader games from the '90s, but it's missing something. It definitely has '90s graphics and sound, but there's no good stuff. Like fun. It doesn't have much fun in it. Crusader had fun in it.

In conclusion, this is a bad game. It's bundle fluff. Steam shows that we have 6 hours of play on record, but that's because someone here started to play it and then just walked away with it still running.

P.S. May God damn that horrible song that plays over and over throughout the whole mess.

A game with zombies and guns and zombies with guns. And weapons have endless magazines that can fit unlimited bullets.
Anyways, this game is short and way too basic. Just mow down hundreds of zombies... And upgrade weapons. And kill more zombies... Nothing special.

Good if you are truly bored and have nothing to play at all.

Guns, Countless Bullets and an almost endless wave of Zombies.

There is something strangely satisfying about playing this game with your favourite playlist playing in the background. That feeling of leaning back in your comfy chair and unleashing a wave of molten metal justice into the unsuspecting horde of zombies. I'm not usually one for such mindless carnage (although now I think about it I enjoyed the hell out of Carmageddon all those years ago). Yet, I found myself turning to this game when I had no idea what else to play.

I'm not going to sugar coat the game at all, it 'says what it is on the tin' to be fair to the developers - It's Zombie Shooter. That's all there is to it, yet there feels like there's more.
It has a Campaign and a Survival Mode, both of which are pretty fun, although I did find myself enjoying the Survival Mode more. In Survival Mode you have survive as many Zombie Waves as you can in a small confined area. There are a selection of maps (each with their own unique element), a wide range of guns and a collection of power ups to use as you see fit. Interestingly there's a perk system too, which allows you to customise your character as you level up from killing the Zombies and surviving the waves.

Campaign mode was OK for what it is, a isometric 'corridor' shooter, and doesn't really try to be anything else. However, it does suffer from some environmental clipping, which is perhaps the most danger you'll find yourself in as it's easy to become trapped/stuck (forcing you to restart the level).
Much like the Survival mode you can upgrade your character, but you have to find the guns to unlock them (rather than the guns falling off of Zombies and into your lap).
I think what I really liked about the Campaign was that there wasn't a half-arsed story tacked onto it to try and justify the mindless onslaught against the Zombie Hoard. It just plonked you into the game and allowed you to go. It makes me realise that I'd actually like to see a Zombie Movie based on that idea - no poorly written story with terrible actors, just a person or two killing endless zombies before the zombies kill them.

The controls are basic and use as WSAD approach with Mouse aiming, sadly no gamepad support (that I could find). There are no real options to customise resolution or graphics, so you'll have to make do with what they offer. The sound is OK, but not amazing. I do feel as though this game is missing out on a killer soundtrack to support the carnage.

If you have low expectations, and are perhaps just looking for something to sit back and waste a few hours on this game is ideal - it might even surprise you.

Sometimes, you want to play a complex game with a rich storyline and well-written dialogues. But sometimes, you just want some brutal, old-fashioned violence. And this is when you want to play games like Zombie Shooter. It's not a ground-breaking game with advanced gameplay feature, no Sir. This is a game where you shoot zombies. Everything is in the title, and this is everything you'll do all along the game.

Is this repetitive? Maybe, but this is an arcade game. You will play it when you want to vent your violence on a good old game, or when you want to beat your friend's highscore. Is it worth the 15€ price for the entire pack ? Maybe, but it'd be better to get it cheaper if you're not sure you'll like it.

TL;DR - this is a cool little arcade game you'll play between two other games. Not the best one ever, but is well enough sufficient as a pastime.

A simple top down isometric shooter. A few weapons to choose from, levels are nothing interesting and mosters are quite generic overall. Gameplay is good and runs smooth, a few powerups to use along with a very simple level up system. An ok game overall. Music is alright. While the game is nothing special, it was worth playing through once, my only real problem with it is that there are way too many ammo drops and the game is quite easy, though this goes for almost every game out there.

The first Alien Shooter was not a good game at all so I expected exactly this just with even more boring enemies because Zombies are lamer than aliens, but actually this game rocks, it is stupid shooting fun with intense fights and gore all over the place, cool enemy types and alotta guns and some decent character customization as well, just a tiny bit worse than the excellent Alien Shooter 2 so try this for the fun, gore, action, and mindless fun cause my god is it a bloody mess and my god is it fun. Surprisingly good!

A basic over head shooter with a little throw back to graphics of the late 90's(Fallout, Starcraft, Warcraft, Diablo).

Like:
-Music, it's defitany one of the biggest pluses to this game. Main menu music is a nice throw back to Resident Evil games. Otherwise the rest is this rock style kinda like Starcraft rock.
-Classic late 90's graphics.
-Nice mix of open and close spaces.
-Distructable enviroment is a nice touch

Dislikes:
-The music doesnt really fade out well. There's a snap in the sound clips or a sharp ending. It's not a big complant it's just noticable.
-Ememies can be too easy at times where you can just pistol your way through most situations. Pistols are a little to OP well upgraded to full.
-Not worth $15 wait for a sale.


All in all its a good time waster. Nothing too serious but good relaxing fun.

Delivers what it says on the tin: there are zombies and you can shoot them. There's a bunch of upgrades and such, but this is not a genre of game I enjoy.

Simple but fun thirdperson action shooter with massive amount of gore. Story nonexistent and really short playtime.
Rating: 5/10 - definitely worth a buy on sale.

4/5 Stars, based on the GOG (DRM-free) version.
Note: My review of Zombie Shooter is based on the GOG version, where I've clocked in over 5 hours, so my Steam account doesn't reflect my actual play time.

Pros:
Fun and frenetic.
Adequate implimentation of light RPG upgrades.
LOW hardware requirements.
Excellent post-apacolyptic atmosphere.
Easy to pick up, yet hard to master.

Cons:
Old (5th gen; PS1/N64 era) graphics -given you're a graphics snob.
Repetitive gameplay.
No online multiplayer.

Just plain old zombie shooting galore. Nothing more is needed. An array of 9 guns with 3 upgrades each, and lots of missions with even more zombies. Shooting zombies has never been more fun!
