Burn Zombie Burn

All zombies are not the same, it transpires.

GUILDFORD, ENGLAND, November 7th 2008 – The crypt keepers at Pinnacle Software and developer Doublesix have today lifted the lid on a brand new in-game trailer and screenshots which reveals all of the enemy zombie types players will encounter in the fiendishly addictive arcade shooter Burn Zombie Burn!, releasing on PlayStation® Network in early Q1 2009.

Each type of zombie has its own behavioural pattern, strengths and weaknesses, and it is up to players to discover the most effective tactics to deal with them on their way to racking up that high score and of course staying alive. So, on to our undead roll call!

Normal – The every day, humdrum, wants-to-eat-your-brains zombie. They shamble slowly around until they get close and then they rush towards you

Exploder – Big flashing lights make sure these walking bombs are clearly visible. Don’t get too close or they’ll try to take you with them

Crazy – Identifiable by their beanie hats, these zombies will chase you clear across the map

Dancers – Dancers hate it when you look at them and will try and dance around to attack you from the back

Rushers – The jocks of the zombie world, they’ll charge you at speed but they’re not too bright and can’t turn very well

Riot – These zombies have taken precautions, with welder’s masks to protect their faces and dustbin lids to protect their bodies, they can only be shot from behind

Noxious – These diseased zombies can cause damage if you get near them but worse still – they can infect other zombies with a plague that turns them green and makes them immune to fire and dance guns. Kill these quick!

Super Zombie – He’s big, he’s strong, his brain’s in a jar and he has serious bowel problems! Pretty much immune to everything except explosives, the Super Zombie is hard to kill.

About Burn Zombie Burn!

Releasing on PlayStation®Network in early Q1 2009, Burn Zombie Burn! is an addictive and charismatic arcade shooter bearing the ‘just one more go’ hallmark that defines all of the great games in the genre. Set across six classic American horror movie inspired levels, you play as Bruce – an average every-day Joe who was looking forward to some ‘quality time’ with his girlfriend Daisy. In true B-movie style their Saturday night is ruined by an invasion of zombies.

The aim of the game couldn’t be simpler; shoot, burn and blow up as many brain munching zombies as possible using a variety of classic zombie killing weapons before they overwhelm you. Use fire to build up your multiplier and then destroy zombies en masse with explosives to increase that oh-so-important leaderboard high score. But beware! A burning zombie is a faster zombie – burn too many and they will burn you!

Burn Zombie Burn! is frantic, arcade gaming at its best, delivering humour and bloody zombie violence in copious amounts!
