Is It Any Good?

Even players who like the idea of torturing zombies should be prepared to be tortured themselves in this sub-par simulation game. The game starts with one unlocked game, toy, tool, food item, background, zombie, and furniture item. From there you'll need to slowly and painfully earn enough experience to unlock each and every item. How? By repeatedly feeding, torturing, and "playing with" your zombie.

In most cases torture is the fastest route to experience, but even those who giggle at the thought of clobbering zombies with mirrors will quickly grow bored here. Mini-games, which provide some respite to the tedium of zombie care, earn Zombucks, but no experience, which means it takes a long time to level up. The game picks up as items are unlocked, but by then you may not care anymore.
