The game was released in 2006 and many new versions of it have come out in since then. Its main character is Jon Bambo(yes, I know, who wouldn’t want to play a game which has a main character with such name?) and his goal is to kill all the zombies that come in his way, and, of course, to make things go BOOM.
What to do in the game?
Well, it’s quite simple. You go around and kill zombies. Every time you kill all the zombies you go a level higher and it gets harder. The point is to survive the longest you can, and make a lot of points. Also, the more zombies you kill in a row the higher the multiplier in the top left corner, and the better upgrades and weapons you get.
How do you play the game?
Player 1: Movement: Arrows; Shoot: Space; Weapon change: 0-9.
Player 2: Movement: W, A, S, D; Shoot: Space or /; Weapon change: Q-E keys. (Controls may be changed if you want to.)
The game itself:
There are several character you can choose from: Bambo, Bon, Bind and Bert. The enemies are the zombies and the devils. Both of them get harder to kill when you move levels up. Especially the devils. Quite frankly, it’s pretty addictive, so you better have some free time in your hands before starting to play it, as you might be late for an appointment.
The higher the levels the faster and the more zombies the game spawns, and you have to be able to use all of your weapons effectively if you want to reach a higher level. Personal advice: never ever use the rocket launcher when there are many zombies near you. It might seem like the weapon to go, but it’ll kill you as it has double edged blade. Even though the Mines might seem useless at first, just keep them in mind. When you reach higher levels, they’ll do much more damage than did in the start, and might even become your best companion for easy killing. All weapons have their upgrades and become deadlier as the game progresses. Except the pistol(the first weapon). It’s just there just to get you started until you reach the second weapon(the UZI). In fact, the UZI will very likely be the weapon you’ll be using the most. The shotgun is very cool, too, but it has limited ammo, so you’ll be left with the UZI. And the ultimate weapon is the Railgun. Strangely, I find myself using it the least, and only in very desperate situation where I don’t have ammo or specific weapon for the situation.
To sum up, it’s a great and addictive game to spend your time playing alone or with a friend, having much fun while making barrels explode.
