Your name is Lance Greenly, and you are lucky to still be alive. You wrecked your car somewhere in the outskirts of town, and luckily, a survivor has come to your rescue. You're stranded in an abandoned house. There is no explanation of what is happening. The only thing that is clear - It's not normal. Will you be able to survive through the night?

The right click menu in the game allows you to set brightness, and quality buttons can be found in the menu. Medium or low quality is recommended. Using high quality almost guarantees poor game performance.
Please play the first game, "Zombies - The Beginning" if you haven't already!

Marginally okay.

First, with the good. The game looked pretty darn good, nice environments and all, if a little bit on the strange side.

Other than that, I wasn't particularly entertained. A pretty simple point and click puzzle, but a bit counterintuitive. The piece of wood that I had to use to get the batteries I got by randomly clicking around the bed hoping that my idiot character would push it out of the way, there's no real indication of what to do there, unless your hope was for the player to get frustrated and randomly mouse-flail until he hit something.

After the first random flailing, I figured that it must be something else like that to continue, so that's how I found the key. I jsut started randomly clicking on everything. There needs to be some indication of what you're supposed to do, instead of just being stuck clicking everything around. Maybe there were cracks there that were supposed to be an indication, but I couldn't see them due to the darkness.

There's nothing to really connect you to the character. The game is really short, too short to make a connection, and he doesn't have much of a personality other than being too stupid to get some batteries from under the bed without a stick to reach it, and refuses to carry a rifle around because it's too heavy for him to carry around. If there was more connection to the character, the Night of the Living Dead (aka Rocks fall, everybody dies) ending might make a little more sense, as is it's just kinda... random.

So, make the puzzles a little more intuitive. That isn't to say easier, but there needs to be some indication of what's required. Possible control over the light while you're searching around might make things easier to find, like the place to break the desk for the key. And as few items as you had, a bar with them listed across it instead of having to click back and forth between a backpack might have been in order, because 3 trips to the backpack to put batteries in a radio was a little annoying.

There is a brightness setting in the right click menu, as stated in the game description, as well as in the game menu.
If you were in his situation, you wouldn't have hints telling you what to do...
I wouldn't quite consider marginally okay as a 4 out of 10 though. That's pretty bad...

Nicely done and great effort for this game. It pretty much freaked me out with the new sounds.

Very good job, my friend! :D

Sincerely disappointed!

Zombies the Beginning was great. A first person fully interactive puzzle game. Now you've taken just about everything that was good and immersive and swapped it out for a half assed top down engine in which the act of crossing from one side of a room to another is tedious and annoying. I brought myself to play the entire game and I have to say the way it played out was disappointing as well. I suspected the sequel to include much much more outdoor stuff, or at least more progression from building to building. The shooting and puzzles weren't amazing either but those aren't what made or broke the first. It also wasn't enough about the characters, that's what makes zombie movies and games so good. Same scenario with completely different people, it's cool to see how it plays out. Yours though focused on none of that, in the first it didn't either but at least then the rest of the story seemed well and kept you on edge, plus I can't expect anything spectacular from a first in the character department. All in all I can ignore the boring action in games if the atmosphere, story and pacing is done well. However unfortunately this game didn't succeed to much in any of those categories. Now don't get me wrong I'm sure you put in a lot of effort, but personally I didn't enjoy it. Here me out, If you do make the third tweaked and more fitting to how a zombie game should be, exploration, story and good characters I will be the first to rate is 10 out of 10. Until then though I have to give this a flat 5.


MichaelJ responds:

You told me all about what was wrong with the game, and said to make it better. But you didn't really say how. I don't understand why you think this one is worse than the first one. So.. this review really doesn't help me. There was only one room with an overhead engine... and all you have to do to move is press the arrow keys, how is that so tedious?
It's just a flash game dude, not a universal movie. Thanks for being honest though.
