My time waster for the day is ZOMGies! Or as I like to call it — Oh My God Zombies! It is a fast paced shoot ’em up zombie survival game that you play with the mouse and keyboard Quake-style. You go after zombies with a few weapons. In the beginning, there is only a little pistol and a crow bar. But as you go on, you will unlock new and more powerful weapons. There are also items you can shoot on the screen to cause reactions to the environment. Let us check it out.
You can start by going to this URL. That will bring you to this screen that will allow you to start a new Zombgies quest or continue a saved one.
I clicked on NEW GAME and was pleasantly greeted with some basic instructions for how to play this zombie survival game. They show you that you can run up, down, left and right by either using the arrow keys or the W, A, S and D keys. You use the mouse to aim at the zombies and the left mouse button to fire! You shoot explosives (barrels) to kill everything on the screen and other goodies will give you points or health.
You are the dude in the pink pajamas! Just a side note, do not sleep in pink pajamas because if Zombies attack everyone will see them! You start off being chased by the horde. Simply move the mouse and start shooting! Aim at them and blast away and watch your points grow.
As you hit the enemies, you will see a life meter appear over there head. When the meter is totally depleted, they are dead. The same thing goes for you. Your health is represented by that red bar in the upper left hand corner of the interface. If it totally depletes, you are dead. The world is lost”¦ Or you can play again!
You can only carry two weapons at a time. To start, the only ones unlocked are the crow bar and the pistol. But as you get more weapons, you will choose your favorite two or the ones you feel will be the best fit with the upcoming board.
When you find a new weapon, you will see this screen asking you to select your weapons again. Here, I found an UZI which is a machine gun and kills much faster than the pistol.
Hitting that purple barrel is a good thing and it will kill everyone (except for you magically) and clear the screen of bad guys.
Direct Hit! Blamo!
Keep on playing and killing to advance and gain more weapons. The flame thrower is simply awesome but I will leave it to you and I will not ruin the game. I beat it in about an hour. And now I have to return to the real world of tech support. Sadly, there are no zombies in my office that need killing – until I start the game again that is!
