What’s It About?
Set after a zombie plague that destroyed society, GUNS, CARS AND ZOMBIES! tasks you with running over as many of the living-impaired as you can before you run out of gas or your ride takes too much damage. The more undead you run over, the more money you earn, the more you can spend on your car, and thus the more undead you can crush on your next run.
Is It Any Good?
Like a cross between Mad Max and The Walking Dead, this violent car game, in which you have to run over zombies, is as fun and challenging as it is bloody and gory. Aptly (if simplistically) named Guns, Cars and Zombies!, this arcade driving game not only has you trying to run over the living-impaired, but also going over some small Dukes of Hazzard-like jumps, picking up gigantic coins, and grabbing power-ups along the way that will give you more gas and other goodies. All of which works as well as it does because the game's controls are responsive and accurate, which makes it easy to weave in and out of the cars parked on the road. Though it also helps that the more of the undead you run over, the more currency you earn and the more upgrades for your car you can buy, which lets you kill even more zombies. You even have a gun that will shoot 'em automatically ... assuming you remember to buy some ammo. Along with the main story mode, this also has different challenge modes as well as the option to play against other people online. All of which is why Guns, Cars and Zombies! is the fun zombie apocalypse Sunday drive you've been training for since you saw Night of the Living Dead at the drive-in.
Talk to Your Kids About ...
Families can talk about automotive safety. Driving like you do in this game isn't safe, so why is it important to obey the rules of the road, even during a zombie apocalypse?
Talk about planning for a disaster. Do you know what to do in the event of a disaster like a zombie apocalypse? Where is your bugout bag? Where do we all meet? Whose job is it to make sure we have enough gas?
Talk money management. Given that you can earn cars and car upgrades by playing, does it make sense to spend a lot of money on this game?
