What parents need to know

Ease of play

With multiple difficulty settings, most players will find just the right challenge level. The controls are perfectly simple in their design.

Violence

You use a shotgun or machine gun to mow down cartoony zombies. Some are old-lady "granny" zombies. When you shoot a zombie, its head flies off and it leaves a splatter of green goo for you to clean up.

Sex
Not applicable
Language

The only epithets here are fake ones, like the hero calling the zombies, "greenies."

Consumerism
Not applicable
Drinking, drugs, & smoking

One scene takes place in a bar and there's a joke about the zombies "drinking their guts up."

Privacy & safety

Some privacy concerns. Players can opt in to Crystal, an interactive network that allows users to upload real avatar photos, create a profile, set location, post scores on leaderboards, add friends, post status messages, and connect with Facebook friends or Twitter followers. The Crystal privacy policy states that it may collect and use information including name, email address, a phone’s Unique Device ID, and IP address. Crystal gives users the option to disagree to terms and conditions, after which new personal data will not be stored on their servers. This will reduce the functionality of the Crystal network for the user.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Zombie Wonderland is a tongue-in-cheek horror game, with cartoony zombies and a humorous premise: The hero is a "zombie cleaner" who is hired not only to kill zombies, but to clean up any guts they spill and leave his clients' homes spotless. There's a definite level of grossness and violence, but the style is very cartoony.

QUALITY
 

ZOMBIE WONDERLAND is ridiculously entertaining. The action occurs at such a frantically fast pace, that you can actually work up a sweat tapping away at the screen. From an overhead view, you'll need to dash back and forth guarding windows on all four sides of a house, blasting zombies that attack from all angles. If you can find the time in between shots, you can quickly hammer up some boards to block a window, but that will only buy you a bit of time until the zombies tear through it. The true humor of the game comes in the clean-up aspect -- the very idea that someone would worry about keeping the carpet clean during a zombie invasion is hilarious. Needing to stop and mop up green "guts" while there are still zombie breaking down your doors just adds to the ludicrous fun of it all. Obviously, this is not a game for young kids, though.
