So as we discuss the [...]

Zombie Hunter Inc Preview – Aim for the Dead

There has always been something oddly relaxing about playing a shoot ‘em up game. The appeal in mowing down waves upon waves of mindless enemies with an arsenal of weapons is timeless, which is exactly what Zombie Hunter Inc speaks to. Zombie Hunter Inc puts you in the place of someone who is essentially a mercenary. Your job is to keep those waves of zombies from reaching your client, who sits beyond the far end of the screen. The zombies [...]
