Lollipop Chainsaw

7 Dec

 

Lollipop Chainsaw is an action game for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. It was developed by Grasshopper Manufacture and was released on June 12, 2012. It is one of the best zombie games released in 2012 and very refreshing to play if you want to kill zombies in a hack and slash game.

 

In Lollipop Chainsaw, you play as sexy girl named Juliet who must fight through hordes of zombies. She can use dodges, melee attacks, and low and high attacks with her chainsaw. She can make the zombies groggy so that they can be instantly killed with the chainsaw. During the game, you can earn medals by killing zombies, rescuing classmates, and smashing objects. You can spend these medals on new combos, moves, and items that increase Juliet’s stats. You can also earn platinum medals that allow you to unlock new costumes for Juliet, artwork, and music.

 

Juliet will learn new abilities such as the Chainsaw Dash and get the Chainsaw Blaster weapon as the game progresses. She can recover health by collecting lollipops scattered in the game’s levels. Throughout the game, Juliet is carrying the disembodied head of her boyfriend Nick. Juliet can attach Nick’s head to a zombie’s body and have the Nick zombie help her clear the way. You can also perform attack moves with Nick’s head such the bombarding attack move. You can also make a mass of zombies groggy with Nick’s head. Lollipop Chainsaw is a nice change from the zombie shooter games that are currently in the market because of its classic hack and slash gameplay.

The Walking Dead

7 Dec

Most of today’s zombie survival games focus on arming yourself with guns and shooting zombies in order to survive. If you’re looking for a different zombie survival game with a good story and some roleplaying elements, then The Walking Dead video game might be the one for you.

 

About the Game

The Walking Dead is a point-and-click game with some roleplaying elements thrown in. It is developed by Telltale Games, the same developer who made the popular adventure games such as Monkey Island and Sam & Max. The Walking Dead consists of 5 episodes in all. The fifth episode, “No Time Left” was released on November 20, 2012. This game is currently available on the PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Arcade, Microsoft Windows (PC), and Mac OS X.

 

Gameplay

This game is an adventure game that requires you to examine items and determine when and where you should use them. You will also need to interact with the game’s characters and make moral decisions that will have consequences with your relationship with them. You will need to use the environment and the items in your inventory in order to survive and move the story forward. Because of the zombies in the game, you often have limited time to figure out how to use your environment or items before the zombies get to you. There are also Quick Time events in the game’s action scenes that determine whether you survive or die. The Walking Dead is a nice change from the usual “point gun and shoot” zombie survival games in the market.
