ZOMBIES Stole My Liquor! (2012) - Zombie Horror Videogame Review (X-Box Indie)

Ok, now at least this game has a different look to it. ZOMBIES Stole My Liquor! goes for a retro look and sound to it, it evoked feelings of old computer games when I first started playing.

Starting off in a square you play as some blocky guy with a gun who must locate a bottle of alcohol via a giant arrow. Once you have the alcohol you must return it to your base where you can use money to buy new weapons and then repeat to infinity.

If not for the controls this game would be fun. The controls are terrible! Your character controls like a tank making it frustrating to turn around as you are forced to go in big circles, especially annoying when you miss your target and have to go a huge circle to get back to it, being hit by zombies all the while. The zombies are blocky and die in a satisfying retro style but when the controls are this broken there is little enjoyment to be gotten.

It may look and sound different but it is at it's heart another over head shooter that cannot hide it's core blandness.
