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.

I've been having troubles trying to get this game to run on my Linux machines - this will be my second one that I'm trying (it's a Samsung Chromebook [ARM processor, which may affect things] with xfce installed in) and I can not seem to be able to get anything when I run the ZombieGrinder executable file (obviously, on xfce - ChromeOS is a laugh of an OS). I've tried before on a Acer that I've converted to a Linux before without any better luck (this was supposed to have a x86 processor). Anyone Linux users manage to successfully run this or am I going to have to get myself a Window labtop?

Never mind - I've done a bit of homework using

file ZombieGrinder

And noticed that the file is compiled with Intel 80346 - which means this is an x86 executable. SInce I am using an ARM CPU, I'm always going to have problems. Time to do some Boxing Day shopping for an x86 computer :)
