Art feels too small, feel unfairly fast
Bloody Pixel Zombies for Android is a small game where you run through zombies and people - then you cut them down with a big sword. The sword looks like Cloud Strife’s sword from Final Fantasy, and not just in terms of style. Everything in the game is pixelated, and sometimes it can look cute, but the graphics mostly just make the gameplay feel annoying and old.
To say this game is twitch based would be the biggest understatement of the year, or perhaps, the century. You simply tap to swing your huge sword, and the game times your swing and your reaction close to mili-seconds. There have been times I could’ve sworn that I sliced a zombie in half but apparently I was slightly off. Running through 10 zombies is no small feat when it comes to this game.
When you aren’t choppin’ through zombies, you are trying to avoid chopping down people. If you chop down a person, you cry and lose. If you fail to chop down a zombie you get eaten. Each animation is quite funny and this is actually where the pixel graphics excel and look good. It’s a pity that when it comes to running through the levels the graphics make it hard to differentiate between friend and foe.
Bloody Pixel Zombies is exactly what it sounds and not much else. There really isn’t much to the game besides the run and gun elements it has. It’s a brutal game in terms of its mechanics, and mostly just feels like a flash game ported to Android (it very well might be just that).
