Is there no end to the abundant joy that’s been provided over the years by that most retarded of foils, the zombie? No, apparently not. The screenshots for this might look a bit kiddy, but the puzzling work definitely hits the mark like a shovel to the jugular.

Take control of a trio of zombies who must rid the world of aliens, using each character’s unique moves and powerups. Want a zombie on a motorbike to drive you safely across nail-ridden hardboard in an industrial network of corridors? Want a zombie’s almost-but-not-quite detachable arm to help you climb up those extra high ledges? Want a zombie with tentacles to, uh, slime around walls and generally move slowly like a lumbering manatee, while the background music enthuses you suitably and you find yourself delighted by ingenious puzzles? You’ve come to the right game.
