This game was submitted to the mini Ludum Dare #35! This means that it was created in under 48 hours!

Woo! Thanks for the front page Tom!!
And thanks Prodevus for telling me!

You are the zombie in this human apocalypse arcade game (Interesting twist, huh?)
The goal is to survive for as long as you can while humans try to capture you!

Disclaimer - you can not infect other zombies, sorry! I hadn't thought of that until you guys told me. I will work to create an altered game-mode version in the future :)

- There's achievements for you to get! GET THEM!
- Try and get your name at the top of the scoreboard (see below).

It's an infinite world with the following features:
- There are bricks that you can break by shooting at them. The humans can break through blocks also!
- There is TNT which you can blow up (But be careful if you're too close!).
- There is water which slows you down.
- There are health power-ups that restore 1/10 of your health.
- There is Notch's Minecraft head! It only has a .0075% chance to spawn. It's just for fun.


Now that I've actually had a good chance to play it, I've found that having a strategy is the best way to survive. My strategy is to go back and forth in an area right from the start, breaking all of the blocks and shooting anything that's in my way. Once the humans come and start breaking the blocks, I'll have more room to move around! Using your enemies to work for you! How cool!? Also, using that method, it's easier to find hearts.

- Score save properly again
- Reset highs scores because of weird numbers (Sorry!)
- Added pause
- Updated instructions
- Added energy boost


my one complaint was that theres like 80,000,000,000,000 people to kill after one day

Zanzlanz responds:

I think that's an over-exaggeration. ;)
But yes, those humans are abundant, aren't they?

love the idea of the secret badge

Zanzlanz responds:

Nice!!! You got it! :D

Impressive game. Quite fun (for a short period of time at least). As said before, a shop would be nice. Also, the idea making the game more stealthy could work, but I still like the idea of 1 zombie versus shit tons of humans. Maybe you could make the game more apocalypsey by making stronghold to hide and fight the zombies off in, and loot lieing around. Basically a Left 4 Undead game? Either way, keeping going, this is a nice idea you have.

People find this review helpful!
Zanzlanz responds:

Thanks for your optimism!
There's a lot of room for improvements, yes. But right now to tell you the truth, after more than 2 straight days of seeing nothing but humans chasing me, I'm about ready to take a break, haha!
But I'll keep all that in mind for later versions ;)
I like the idea of something like an infinite outside dungeon with doors so humans can come in and chase you around the mazes. Meanwhile, you can find treasure and increase your artillery, or something.

fun for about....2 minutes

Zanzlanz responds:

Yeah it's just a time killer, really......

lol its awesome its better than sonic the hedgehog games!!! (Sonic the hedgehog is a a fast runner in games on the Wii,Xobx360,and computers I think lol)

Zanzlanz responds:

Haha really? I've never played Sonic games but I have seen some pictures and stuff. Doesn't it have a storyline and game modes and stuff though?
