doublesix games announces All Zombies Must Die!
will be released on Steam
on March 12th, a considerable delay from the plan
to release the Windows version of the shooter this past autumn. They say they have made it worth the wait:
All Zombies Must Die! combines twin-stick shooting with persistent role playing elements for a refreshing take on the well-worn subject of zombie slaughter. The fate of humanity rests in the hands of four unlikely heroes: Jack, the gamer; Rachel, the girl; Brian, the geek; and Luxo, the alien. Go it alone, or enlist the services of up to three like-minded chums to survive the zombie apocalypse.
The Steam version of the game addresses ‘zombie swarming’, with a new ‘treacle’ mechanic making it possible to wade through otherwise impenetrable crowds of zombies. Additionally, the gate-quest structure of the game has been re-jigged to improve the flow of play, making things less harsh towards the end of the game. As well as all this, the Steam version comes in tow with its own integrated leaderboards and achievements.
Taking on board feedback from the console versions of the game, doublesix has trimmed the fat, spruced up the core mechanics and put together an even more enjoyable Arcade RPG than before. The wait, it’s fair to say, has been worth it.
