  • Summary: Burn Zombie Burn! is fast-paced action game in which the player must survive against a never-ending horde of zombies. In addition to using the various weapons that become available, the player must learn how to use fire to do well in the game. Setting zombies alight makes them faster and far more dangerous but allows them to drop far more useful pickups than normal zombies. The number of burning zombies also counts as your score multiplier meaning the more zombies you set of fire, the more you score. The game's protagonist is Bruce who must battle the zombies across all six maps and all three modes - including defence mode in which Bruce must defend his girlfriend Daisy from the undead horde. The game takes place within 6 infinite play arenas with 3 modes in each plus 10 challenges that provide alternate styles of play. Play by yourself or with a friend in the Co-Op or Versus modes.

    The game can become addicting especially after one of two good runs with a high score. It's mindless fun that will keep you playing for a good six hours if not more.
  2. The game is 10 dollars, which seems about right for the maximum amount of enjoyable this game is able to deliver.
  3. Burn Zombie Burn is a fun little zombie-shooter with appealing game modes and plenty of action. Unfortunately, the complete lack of multiplayer is a missed opportunity indeed.
  4. Doublesix's zombie shoot-em-up is a delightful mix of Geometry Wars' top-down, arcade action and a 60s monster movie. It satisfies your basic high score addiction and looks delightful doing it.

    I wanted to kill zombies in a mindless fashion. Not only did this game sufficiently scratch my zombie itch, but i also find it to be a very good mindless time killer. The game play is NOT the best, but if your looking to play something casually or competitively with non-gamers, this might just be your game. Expand

    A strong, simple game that tends to feel like one of the many top-down shooters popular on the iPhone, iPad, Android, XBL and PC. Enjoyable and fast paced, the game is great for its niche. However, it is a rather simple score based game that to some may get repetitive rather than challenging. Expand

    The Premise is beautiful, no story, just massacre as many zombies as possible. Stylized. Almost artistic. The unbelievable downfall is the controls are some of the worst every. Unintuitive, slow, clumsy, and unresponsive. Unforgivable for what amounts to and arcade- type game. Simply hilarious to watch but miserable to play. Expand

    Games in the series "all zombies" are nice for the first few hours of play, helps graphic cartoon style and charisma of the character, but at some point the game becomes too difficult, almost all the zombies, even the slowest appear below effect of speed. It become something nervous instead of fun and the poor arsenal does not help. Expand

    Conceptual wise it's hilarious. The game itself is mediocre even with the compatibility issues it faces (i.e. low frame rate) and you play a character what looks like one of Elvis Presley's offspring... I was done playing Burn Zombie Burn after 20 minutes of evaluating and I can strongly suggest you think a few times and watch a few more videos before you consider buying a poorly manufactured game. Because this isn't worth more than a couple of dollars, unless you enjoy zombie killing for no apparent reason. Expand

    Clunky and unresponsive control, fluctuating FPS, console oriented menu and tutorial.

    All of these suffer from a crappy console port which
    ruins all the potential of this game. Expand
