This game was inspired from our fight to keep a breathable air to our newborn baby girl.

Kill the zombies to keep the air clean. More score is awarded if the zombies dies faster.
Use the money to buy and upgrade weapons. Your coop shoother can use purchased weapons too, but takes time to use it with perfection and a good fire rate.

We at Zanardi&Liza do not encourage any kind of agression against particular behaviors. If do you want to smoke something, just make sure to not harass who does not want to. Everything have a good time and place to be done.

Critics and feedback are greatly welcome.

<Updated to version 1.1>
I want to say thanks to all the users that found and detected a bug in the game. It was a little hard to catch him because it was happening on very particular ocasions. The mention of the number 2 helped a lot.

- the purple hair girl:
short version: a pothead friend of mine asked if I could change the name of the game to "junkhead zombies". It was ok and I did it, and then the purple hair girl was created. Then I gave up the new name and returned the game name to Pothead Zombies, as it was the name we at ZanardiLiza always called the game.

I played this years back and after coming back to it nearly 8 years later brings me much nostalgia. I enjoy the concept, I like the character design (Despite not being a furry myself)
It's a shame this game series probably won't get much more traction, I think very highly of it as a base defense game with how unique the plot is and the partner mechanic is genius. I hope Zanardi and Liza keep at it with their games. I'm excited for that as well.

Hi there! Just a quick question: what's your feel on this game:
This is kind of a sequel from the Potheads game, and we're currently working on Battle Bruise's sequel right now.

i love this game and it's easy

This was a pretty fun experience, having that partner helping you out and killing all those zombies all over the place xD
The strangest and most confusing things are probably the achievements that won't unlock even if you do everything possible to get them ( ummm... is the creator of this a pothead zombie?`Seems like so )

There's also quite a bit of lag later on when there's multiple zombies on the field, but this is not as much of an issue as the upper case.
Overall, seemed like a pretty decent experience to me ^_^


Great defense game. I actually played it back in '11 and came back today. Never finished it until now. Was expecting a tank with a joint for cannon as final boss, but it's okay - wasn't disappointed with the current one.

Can't believe you guys changed the game's name once because it offended someone. I believe there is no reason to ban any drugs for adult consumption, and, nonetheless, the setting of the game is far from being "bigoted" against drug users. They are simply the antagonist - Although I believe tobacco smokers could have been included too (tobacco is far more dangerous than pot).

leonardozimbres responds:

Hi there!

Hum... we changed the latest game's name because of the iOS release. We're not sure if it would offend someone at Apple, so we tried changing the name.

Yep, tobacco is way worse. They are included on this first game, the enemies that get out of the wrecked car are tobacco smokers.

Sometimes, we at Z&L ask ourselves if we should work on a "Pothead Zombies HD Plus" version for Steam. But one thing that I ask myself is, "should I do it? With a different name? Will people always remember me as the Pothead game guy?"
