New weapons!?



Oh what's that? You want new weapons for ZKW-Reborn? Did I hear you right? Now did I?

You have been heard!
New update, balancing ALL of the weapons ZKW-Reborn currently has, changing the way weapon pickups work (more on that later!) and NEW, NEVER BEFORE SEEN (well, in ZKW atleast) WEAPONS!

There will be atleast one new type of RIFLE, one new SMG, SHOTGUN, and PISTOL in this update! And more!
Can you guess what these weapons will be?

Changing the way weapon pickups work!

Instead of every weapon being in one place at all times (which is.. well.. Kinda lame, if you think of it) there will be different weapon TIERS placed in the maps! (like that helps) So, instead of one weapon being in place X, there will be 3 weapons now on that spot! Now hang on to your horsies! These weapons will be RANDOMIZED every time they're purchased, so you won't be looking that UZI, or Thomps.. oops. on the same place all of the time!

Cool. When are we going to get this update?

This update is going to be huge, but we're working on it hard! Hopefully we'll get everything working (with the new weapons, there's a-lot of stuff that needs to be done on the Cloud saves again and such..) within a month! After this update, we'll start working on the campaign mode.

Stay trigger happy!

Campaign mode for ZKW?



Here's a picture of a doge.
Now that I have your attention, let me ask you something.
ZKW, and campaign mode.
Yay, or nay?

Let me explain a bit further.
I'm sure all of you already know, that after the first few hundred rounds, ZKW tends to get boring. I've tried to come up with multiple ideas that would make the game more interesting, even on the later rounds, but nothing seems to be working for long.

So, this one particular idea has been in my head for a few years already, but I never haven't had enough time, or interest to make it happen.
So, this campaign mode. The gameplay wouldn't be changed too much. You could still play as long as you wanted, BUT with a little twist. Once you've gotten to round X, a door would open. Or any other kind of transition thing (train, car, plane.. Hole?) in which you could enter, and you would then go to another area of the map. So, let's say you're in Abandoned Hospital. The door opens, and you go in there. Boom, you're now in another section, as big as the first one, of the hospital.

Each level would have 3-5 sections in total, and once you've finished them all, you win. Yes, sounds weird? Winning in ZKW? Well, yes. You would win, survive another day. But you could still just stay, in any of these sections, and make your last stand, just like now.

So, any ideas? What does this make you feel?

About This Game

Zombie Kill of the Week - Reborn is a challenging, fast paced, 2D survival shooter! And when we say fast, we mean breakneck, flat-out, adrenaline fuelled fast! What’s different from the other shooters is your goal isn’t to run through levels and finish the game, but to survive for as long as possible under increasingly frantic conditions (we say as long as possible because ultimately you will die!).



Seems simple enough, but where Zombie Kill of the Week - Reborn really takes off is in the added layers of depth and huge variety of features and customisation available. Players earn money for slaughtering the zombies (money might not bring you happiness, but it does buy you guns!). We live in a consumer society after all, which is useful, as you can spend big on over 25 different weapons (including chainsaw, katana, mini-gun, RPG, D.O.M. and many others!). You also need cash to open doors, activate jumps, buy new weapons, or hunt for the magic fridge and see what loot drops are inside! In short… the longer you survive, the more weapons and prizes you get.

Surviving longer also gains you ZKW-Points which you can cash in to totally customize your character, customize your weapons, buy new weapons, buy different perks, open new maps, and a lot lot more! Players also earn XP as they play, allowing them to level-up their character and develop them to fit their chosen gameplay skills. Survival is all about the margins, and every little extra helps!



The Steam release also features an exclusive level editor for the Zombie Kill of the Week - Reborn community, which allows the community to create their own custom and bespoke maps, then share them with friends (and enemies) for everyone to enjoy. Endless permutations and maps means endless challenges.

With a compelling single player survival mode, as well as cooperative multiplayer for up-to four players, this is one zombie firefight you are not going to want to miss! If that wasn't enough you can even play cross-platform play with Android owners too!



  • Kill zombies with a very wide arsenal of weapons, including: Chainsaw, RPG, D.O.M., katana and many others!
  • Over 20 Steam Achievements
  • 5 stunning maps
  • Exclusive Level Editor for PC. Create your own custom maps, then upload and share with friends.
  • Cooperative multiplayer for up-to 4 players
  • Full controller support
  • Online highscores
  • Cloud profiles
  • Weapon customization
  • Player customization
  • Skills, trophies, perks, blood and gore!
  • Original sound tracks composed by Roland La Goy
  • Cross-platform play with Android allowing you to carry on playing on the go!

A 2-Dimension zombie action game in which the dev team has shown respects on the Mega Man series. You are destined to get killed in this game, since this is a zombie game. However, this game gives the same delights in the shooting experience in the Mega Man series. There are many elements (perks, inventories, and weapons) to buy and upgrade, and if you keep playing, you will be able to stand for more endless waves of zombies with those upgraded weapons.

This game has worse voice acting than Resident Evil and Sharknado combined.
Neverless, it's still pretty good if you want to dish out some 2 dimensional pain.

Zombie Kill of the Week - Reborn is a 2D zombie action game where you have to defend yourself against the horde. In ZKWR you have to fight off wave after wave of undead in hostile environments. Killing zombies will earn you money which can then be spent on weapons and unlocking doors. Killing undead also rewards you with EXP and when you get enough to level up you earn tokens which can be spent on customising/upgrading your character.

+Decent pixel graphics, they aren't the best but I've certainly seen worse
+Tons of customisation options for your character such as perks, weapon upgrades and clothing
+Quite a lot of different weapons with a few more to be unlocked
+Good variety of zombies to kill
+EXP is permanent as are upgrades and appearance customisations
+A few different pickups/powerups which help you, they're basically rip-offs of the ones you'll find in CoD so they're pretty self-explanatory
+If you have no friends to play with you can play with bots but
+The 5 currently available maps are very different to one another
+Nice soundtrack

-As soon as zombies start attacking you from both sides you're pretty much screwed, especially if the fast moving zombies are in play
-Zombies still function and are able to kill you for a few seconds after you destroy their head which is pretty irritating
-Playing this game Singleplayer gets boring very quickly
-Bots have to be unlocked by finding items on the maps which I found annoying
-Painfully bad voice acting

Verdict:
Solo only: Worth purchasing on sale (6.5/10)

Multiplayer as well as Solo: Worth purchasing (7.5/10)

A decent Zombie horde style game with decent graphics, tons of customisation, a fair few types of undead and good maps that's let down by it's lack of focus on singleplayer.

No drama, Just Reviews?

Hours played when writing review : 11

This game is where you endlessly shoot zombies, bosses, and rat like things that steal your money. You buy new guns, unlock doors & even open fridges.

Pros :

+ Amazing soundtrack to the game
+ Graphics are very nice, animations are smooth.
+ "Level up" system with perks and weapons to unlock and it takes ages to unlock all of them. (I only have about half of it unlocked, 11 hours into the game.)
+ High fps over-all throughout the game.
+ Multiplayer doesn't require you to port-forward, and you can pass-word protect your server.

Cons :

- If you get surrounded by zombies, you're most likely going to die.
- Not very many maps. (Not sure if they will add more maps in the future.)
- You might lag in multi-player...a lot. (Rare occasion, but it still happens.)
- Not very many people play this game during certain hours of the day. Hard to get anyone to join a server.

Overall :

9 / 10 stars.
I would highly recommend this game to everyone who enjoys killing zombies. It is very fun, even when you are playing by yourself.
I thought this game would be a waste of time. I was wrong.
