    -- PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT --
    Welcome to the Zombie Escape experience! We hope that your stay with us will be pleasant. We ask that you await your helicopter, which will be coming to rescue you shortly. In the meantime, please enjoy the horde of zombies that is swiftly approaching your position. We do ask that you not feed the zombies, as this will only encourage them.

    We strongly recommend that you use all the tools at your disposal to guide survivors to waiting escape helicopters ... before the zombies eat them. Please make use of the provided raw meat, bombs, sniper rifles, and other weapons. Thank you for your attention!

    FAST AND FEARSOME GAMEPLAY
    Find fun and creative ways to distract the undead long enough to get those survivors out of there – or watch on helplessly as the eating of brains begins!

    A WORLDWIDE PANDEMIC
    It seems that nowhere is safe! Make your way between three different zones (Downtown, Airport and Forest), covering 28 days (levels) of catastrophic mayhem in total! Add to that four different types of brain-hungry zombie attackers, and it becomes clear that you’ll need to come prepared to do some damage! Thankfully, there’s plenty of special weapons to help you get the job done: with abilities including sniper, bomb, SOS helicopters, sleeping gas, raw meat, Safe Zones and a couple of secret weapons, there’s no end of firepower at your disposal!

    CONQUER THE APOCALYPSE
    With both Campaign and Survival modes available, there’s literally an endless supply of slavering zombies to sink your teeth into – or possibly, to sink their teeth into you! Put your survival skills to the test, and earn special Achievements. And when your skills are as lethal as they get, take it all online, and compete for top position in the fully-integrated Crystal leaderboards! Because what’s the point of conquering the apocalypse if you can’t brag to your friends?

    -- THANK YOU FOR YOUR ATTENTION. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU TAKE ALL OF YOUR BODY PARTS WITH YOU BEFORE EXITING THE BUILDING. --

    But Zombie Escape tosses real strategy into the mix with the addition of very different weapons that force you to rethink your attack plans every few stages.

    Zombie Escape adds a few new twists to the line-drawing genre and even though things can get hectic it's a fun challenge to conquer.

    Zombie Escape is better than most trace the path sort of games. There is far more incentive than just the high score battle that exists in similar titles, but it does not change the fact that is a path tracer, a genre term I have officially just coined.

    Zombie Escape is approachable and deep, but the screen full of tiny characters make it feel cramped.

    The game is fun overall. There is no real doubt about it, but to me it got a little bit repetitive and tedious after a little while.

    Close enough to other line-drawing titles to feel familiar, but fresh enough not to turn stale, Zombie Escape is worthy of your time.
