Leicester Squared: Big Pixel Zombies

By Quintin Smith on August 3rd, 2010 at 1:37 pm.

See Spot shoot. Shoot, Spot, shoot. Now, Spot, NOW. NOW, NOW, NOW.

Who wants a good 10-15 minutes of braindead zombie shooting? Ah, you do. You do! IndieGames.com informs us of Big Pixel Zombies (from the makers of Big Pixel Racing), a browser game that sees players steering a proud pixel through the streets of a zombie-infested London, occasionally visiting shops to buy guns, steaks or dogs with guns strapped to them. I’ve run it through the RPS supercomputer and am informed that it’s at least 62% as good as Hellgate: London, so there. You can begin blasting right here.

    Pretty cool. The rewards could come a bit faster.

    Kinda just makes me want to go and play Boxhead.

    None of the links go to the game itself… Thanks torchedearth.

    I see young Quintin has learned well. The high editorial polish of RPS – which is obviously why we all come here no doubt – remains solid.

    No more zombies. Please, God, no more zombies. The games industry hasn’t been this saturated with one theme since world war two ended in late 2008.

      Do your part by playing this game and there will be fewer zombies.

      Pretend they are obsessive zombie media fans in makeup trying to kill you for being tired of their favorite theme. And all of London is ruled by them.

    Had a real problem with the mouse not responding in this game, it would fire constantly in the wrong direction. Felt like a buffer was overloading and then the mouse just ceased to work. Shame as I like the square dogs.

    Now Dead Rising 2 is going to feel useless unless it has a dog with a gun on it’s head.

    Since you guys know people in the industry, maybe you could find out if they’ll ever do a movie/dvd/mini-series based on the cut-scenes of hellgate: london? The art and animation in their trailers/cut scenes were great and I think the story had a lot of potential.

    While you’re at it, ask Blizzard the same thing!

    Fun little game, but difficulty plummets as soon as you can make a meat mountain: http://i35.tinypic.com/ank7b9.png
