It’s been a hot minute since my last video game collection post. I recently started writing for another website, and have been trying to decorate my house.
I’m not looking forward to painting my bedroom.
Anyway, I’m taking a minute to breathe, and talking about some video games.
Today we picked up the new 2DS! This is number 4 in the DS collection. But someone just HAD to have it.
As I was waiting on Dill, I found some amiibos, and picked up The Guardian Amiibo. Which is badass, and so excited to have in my collection. And I never want to open it. I’ll cry when I do.
So, the game I’m spotlighting is Zombies Ate My Neighbors. A lovable arcade game that came out on the Super Nintendo. I didn’t play this as a kid. I saw it in a cheat-code book once, and thought the title was amazing. I was always curious about it, but only ran across it for the first time aeveral years later.
It was one of the first games I bought for my collection. I was so excited to play it. The cover of the game is perfection.
The aesthetic of the game is the best. The characters you can play as scream pop culture. Yes, it’s a co-op game, and it’s one of the best one on the SNES.
The concept is pretty simple. You have to rescue a certain number of people in order to move on the next stage. You are equipped with a water gun to blast away zombies. You run into other obstacles such as flying books, and different types of enemies.
Including a giant baby. A giant baby.
This is nightmare inducing to me. I hate kids, and a giant baby would make me piss myself.
This game is very challenging; get used to repeating levels over and over again. You never know what you will run into with each level, so you have to adapt in order to overcome the challenge. Like chainsaw weilding Jason look alikes that chase you through a hedge maze. Only certain weapons will defeat this enemy, and your primary weapon won’t do the trick. There are a variety of weapons you can pick up, and health packs along the way. So, the game is a little forgiving.
Zombies Ate My Neighbors is a must have for a SNES lover. It’s a fun game full of wonderful design, solid gameplay, and has great co-op. Just be prepared to die several times before beating the game. There are over 50 levels, so good luck.
