Zombies Ate My Neighbours – What Is The Game All About?
So Zombies Ate My Neighbours see our two protagonists as in Zeke and Julie, who just discovered the zombies in the neighborhood. Now it’s up to them to save their nice neighbors, cheerleaders, and friends from fleshing-eating zombies. Plus, these zombies aren’t the only thing you need to worry about. As Zeke and Julie travel through suburban neighborhoods, shopping malls, pyramids, haunted castles, and much more. Zombies tag along with some of the iconic horror characters throughout history.
We have vampires, werewolves, huge demonic babies, spiders, squid men, evil dolls, aliens, and UFOs. Then there are also giant ants, blobs, giant worms, mummies, chainsaw-wielding maniacs. Everything compensating for the adventurous gameplay apart from the zombies. Amidst these, there are 48 stages where the player needs to save his/her neighbors that range from the regular ones to chefs to teachers or anyone. All you have to do is touch the neighbors to save them before the monsters touch them, which will kill them. Saving all of them will have a door opened for you, which takes you to the next level.
Apart from that, all the ten neighbors you are saving in a level have their own uniqueness and point. There are often times in the game you may witness nightfall. During this time, even the neighbors turn monsters, and you can’t save them at this point of the game. Also to fight back the monsters, the game allows players to use some weapons that are available throughout the game. These include Uzi water gun, bazookas, weed-whackers, explosive soda cans, ice pops, tomatoes, silverware, dishes, ancient crucifixes, flamethrowers, fire extinguishers, and Martian bubble guns.
The new features added to Zombies Ate My Neighbours on PS4, Xbox One, and other platforms including a quick-save system, achievements, and behind-the-scenes galleries, The game art, and video interviews of the original Zombies Ate My Neighbors developers.
Another new thing is that the game is bundled with Ghoul Patrol. It is kind of a sequel to the game. We have the same main characters. Although unrelated to the storyline, the game has a similar kind of gameplay and engine. JVC Musical Industries released the game in 1994. It sees the protagonists fighting ghosts and ghouls who have been released after reading an ancient spirit book. Now the protagonists aim to rewrite history to trap them again.
