Zombie Grinder is the debut game of TwinDrills, an indie game development duo made up of Tim 'Infini' Leonard and Jordan 'Jordizzle' Chewning. It's a multi-platform (windows, mac, Linux!) (also Free!) cooperative multiplayer arcade game, reminiscent in style and gameplay of retro games like 'Zombies Ate My Neighbors' and 'Super Smash TV!', but with the added benefit of some newer game mechanics - achievements, ranking, player-customization, rpg style stats and so forth. The game sports a variety of different game modes, from co-operative 'campaign' style levels, to wave maps and even the classic 'pvp' style game modes - deathmatch, capture the 'bag' and so forth. All of these mods are bristling with a variety of weapons and items, all lovingly displayed in Jordan's classic quirky pixel-art style.
Very very nice game, even though it's only a demo so far.
-Very Colourful graphics
-Nice retro style music
-Easy to play controls
-Can't really connect to servers with players
I will stop here since this is only a demo and there are probably more improvements too come! Really fun to play :)
This take the run and gun zombie shooter RPG genre and mutilates it gracefully.
While that doesn't sound like a good statement, I can assure you it is.
This game being free is great to try out with friends and if you enjoy it you can upgrade or pay for other privileges. And if you're as poor as me, not paying for those things doesn't mean you miss out on a super fun experience. If you're not a fan of 16 bit games, you shouldn't be here but it is really amazing.
Check it out for free and support the devs as well!
