  • Summary: Take part in the great battle to rescue humanity and find out what's happening! The human race is in danger again. This time, scientists could not avoid the imminent threat and became monsters themselves. Crowds of zombie people filled the secret research base. The dreadful contagion is about to spread across the earth. Use the last chance to save the humanity from total annihilation! Find the answer to the main question--what caused the catastrophe? Who knows, maybe on the final stage you'll face something terrible? Try your monster-fighting skills in two additional game modes--Survive and Gun Stand. Only these modes will really show how good you've become. Expand

    I purchased the game on sale from Steam for $1.24 (normally priced $5). I have to say that I am actually pleasantly surprised by the game and could not be more happy with the purchase. In a nutshell, the game is a combination dungeon crawler and top down shooter. You crawl through maps, shooting down enemies and shooting open crates to earn XP, weapons, cash, and other pickups. Between each map, you can allocate skill points to one of four skills and use money to purchase weapons/ammo or to upgrade your weapons for more power. (If not purchased, some weapons can be found by exploring.) The game is extremely easy at first, as the zombies just stumble around slowly in small numbers. But the more you progress, you start to encounter mega-zombies with laser guns and rocket launchers, not to mention that the zombie numbers increase drastically. If you're not careful or properly equipped, it soon becomes easy to get yourself into a zombie rape situation. Fortunately, there are several different ways to save yourself from the game over screen. I am rating the game down a point because it's true that the enemies are not particularly interesting in their behavior. In fact, they are often glitchy, getting stuck on walls (as will you), standing in one place and spinning in a circle, sudden bursts of incredible speed for no apparent reason, etc. But despite those glitches, I don't feel like my game experience was much less fun as a result. If you're looking for a complex action game or deep gunplay, then you will possibly be disappointed in Zombie Shooter. If you are looking for a simple dungeon crawler where you control your character with WASD, shoot zombies by pointing your mouse at them, and pick up lots of loot and XP, then Zombie Shooter might just give you a thrill. If like me you get a special thrill out of old school graphics, then the thrills are even more likely. If you have a destructive personality and like a game where almost everything explodes or breaks when shot and where enemies burst open and spew their blood and guts all over the floor, wall, and surrounding objects, then there are even more thrills to be had! I personally think it's not a bad game for $5. But if you catch it on sale for any less than that, there is no excuse not to pick it up. Also note that there is a demo if you want to give it a try before you buy. Expand

    Really interesting and simple game at the same time. It is good time-killer with isometric graphics. There are a lot of blood and fun in "Zombie Shooter". Expand

    Wave after wave of zombies, your screen will turn red. Three different gameplay modes: Campaign, Survive and Gun stand; would be perfect if main story last longer...however the final battle is epic. Expand

    Zombie Shooter is a top-down isomorphic shooter where you gun down hundreds of zombies while making your way through a maze-like level. The concept of the game is simple enough, and I've seen it work just like this in a bunch of Flash games: kill things, get money, buy weapons, kill more things.

    The problem is that the design of this game is very sloppy. The level design is poor: things often get obscured by the walls, I got stuck in the geometry (surprising for a 2D game), and many other minor annoyances. There's no tutorial, and this game probably could have used one.

    The art and music work, but they're nothing special. The constant clinging of shells hitting the ground gets old.

    Zombie Shooter's fun as a quick diversion, but it's definitely not the best way to spend $5. Might be worth picking up on sale if you see it for a dollar.

    Well pretty straight forward game.
    Just make your way past hords of zombies untill you reach to the end of the level.
    Level designs are
    simple as are objectives. Go to the end of the map (while killing hundreds of zombies push one button and go back (while killing even more zombies )

    Overall is quite fun and relaxing game that you can beat in about 2-3 hours.

    Arcade game where you shoot zombies, upgrade your weapons, stats, shoot more zombies, upgrade more weapons, stats, shoot shooting zombies and 2 hours later you are finished. Also there is survivor mode. Expand

    Almost the exact same game as Alien Shooter, Alien Shooter: revisited and Alien Shooter 2: Reloaded

    Same controls, same ugly interface, same
    boring enemies and same budget-90's gameplay.
    Zombies can't make up for this sorry excuse of a game. Can't believe they actually dare charge money for this junk!
