The only thing I could think of when I started this game was that I was having flashbacks to the 80’s and the old Nintendo and Commodore 64 8-bit games. Then my kids walked in the room and I realized that I wasn’t dreaming at all. This game was real.
In Zombie Estate, you must survive the waves of zombies coming at you. There are 25 increasingly difficult waves to survive through. But don’t worry, you don’t have to do this alone. You can play locally with up to 4 different players. Between waves, you can purchase different weapons and ammo to help you out with the game.
The graphics here are definitely retro. I’ll give the developer that much. 8-bit graphics all the way. If you’re expecting to see faces and blood and gore, this is not the game for you.
What the game lacks in graphics it definitely makes up for in the sound dept though. The music is very catchy and really adds to the game. If you are going to give it a try or a buy, do it for the soundtrack.
The game itself is fairly simple to play. Basically, move around the board and shoot the zombies. Be careful you don’t run out of ammo. You do have a little bit of time between waves to purchase extra weapons and ammo from the store. Make sure you do this. The only problem I have with this game is the fun factor. It’s fun and cute for about the first 4 or 5 waves of zombies. Then it gets pretty stale. The background is the same and never changes. You go from the yard to the house and the house to the yard. That’s it. A save function for if you can’t continue playing would have been nice as well. Over all, this game gets 3 thumbs up from me. A cute game and great soundtrack but just doesn’t have good playability over time in my opinion.
