    Don't let the generic zombies premisse scare you away. This is a very innovative game with a simple yet addictive concept.

    Going after all platinums (or gold medals) is good fun, and is what makes the game worth your while (otherwise, it can be considered rather short). Still, nothing wrong with that considering the budget asking price.

    This is how it works: you kill a mob of zombies
    with just a couple of shots (3 at the beginning). The trick is to time your shots just right (and choose the right zombie) so you start a chain reaction to clear enough undead to grant you a pass. That unlock extra levels, reward you with some money, and that's how you keep going.

    There is a light RPG aspect to it, and this is probably the tweak that make it such addictive. You get money by clearing a level, spend the money to 'upgrade' the destructive power of the zombies. Before you know it, you'll be clearing levels with one shot that seemed impossible prior to upgrades. Its very satisfying to watch all zombies die on the screen once you upgrade them enough.

    Since the levels are rather quick, its the kind of game that is hard to put down. It has that 'one more level' hook to it.

    I've spent about 3 days 'obsessed' with this game. When everything was set and done I went prestige, and to be honest I couldn't find the motivation to keep going again. There is one last golden trophy to persue (prestige it 20 times), so I might come back to it eventually.

    Anyhow, its totally worth your time and money if you're into simple puzzle games like this.

    Based on one of the best PSP games ever made, OMG HD Zombies is yet another stellar update for Sony's PS Vita.
  2. At just 2.99 this offers fiendishly addictive bursts of blood-splattery for your handheld. [Sept 2013, p.94]

    OMG Zombies HD puts aside the heated shootouts and incredible escapes to propose a deep and reasoned puzzle game.
