Holy crap. It's not too often that I just throw in (or click in this case) a game and am totally blown away by it. Especially when it's a cheap (technically I got this free through PS+ on PS3) download title which I just downloaded to see what it was like. But that's just what happened.
I'm starting to get burnt out on bad download titles when it comes to tiny games be they on a phone or something akin to PSP minis or XBL indie titles. There's A LOT of them out there and A LOT of them are either bad or just plain boring. OMG-Z is neither.
I sat down the other night and learned the basics needed to complete a level and learned more as I went on in this OMG-Z game... which I assume is "Oh my gawd - Zombies!" ... but it could be Onion Meat Garnish - Zebra! for all I know
|In game screen, lots of blood.|
It's not a typical zombie killing game. Instead of some ammo king who runs around and slaughters everything in an arcade-y like setting, each level is just one screen (with various locations throughout the game) and you a lone shooter whom stands a-top something and has just 3 bullets to pick off the entire mess of undead (well over 100 zombies at times). You can upgrade your weapon's ammo to 6 shots through-out the game, but for the most part you'll be working with just those 3-6 shots. The strategy in play is with the different zombies, their chain reactions and how you upgrade your various skills.
|The upgrade screen. This helps out A LOT.|
It feels truly unique and is addictive like you wouldn't believe. It's got a black/white (and grey) color scheme with only the blood and your reticule showing color, which is quite helpful, as the game gets a little chaotic at times. It's pixel art, much like games of yesteryear and even playing in on my PS3 on a 1080p HDTV(it's built for the PSPs 480x272 resolution) it looked great - very retro.
If you've got a PSP or PS3, get this game I got it for free, but I would of gladly spent $5 for it at the least.
