Not much about runes, but plenty about raiding, it’s Rune Raiders 2! Well, at least, we are hoping that there would be a sequel. The first was fun and enjoyable to play, though it did have its downsides. Hopefully the developers would take note of some of the parts where they could have done a bit better so that the next game would be more fun to play. Rune Raiders places you in control of a small team of heroes as you go off and slay monsters and other vile creatures in order to fulfill some command or other from a king who keeps leaving missives in the middle of a field map.
You would think that it would be difficult to make light entertainment out of something as serious as a nuclear holocaust, but many high-grossing movies of widespread critical acclaim would beg to differ. Terminator 2 managed it perfectly, Dr. Strangelove took an eccentrically comedic stance on the subject, and TV series Jericho even had a go as well. While many flash games may have also attempted to crack the nuclear holocaust market, there aren’t as many notable titles to list here. However, thanks to the sublime, distance-based action game Nuclear Outrun, the term “going nuclear” now has a slightly different meaning for me and perhaps all those who play. Nuclear Outrun takes the despair and desperation of an imminent nuclear attack and makes an incredibly addictive action-driving game out of the whole situation. If you’re prone to stress when presented with some moderate to extreme tension, you may find it difficult to make it through this game, but if you think with confidence that you can out-drive a nuclear missile then feel free to continue to one of the best distance-based games on the World Wide Web.
Plants Vs Zombies is an involved game with many important elements. I will endeavour to explain to players what is involved, who is involved plus how is the best way to get through the game. It isn’t just a case of level 1 do this do that, its more complex than that. So read on to get helpful, hints, tips, strategies plus all the information you need regarding these funny plants and zombies themselves. Any that are not listed players will find further information in the menu available in the game.
They are greedy, scary…but quite cute at the same time so it’s quite the tragedy that in greedy ghouls you have to kill your fellow creatures or ghosts if you like. Well we though seen as how you have to do so we may as well give you a few tips regarding the weapons available in which to do so!
Your character has a set weapons line up for upgrades and each new weapon requires that the previous tier be purchased. This means that you will have to go through all of the guns in order to get far in this game. It may feel a little unfair since you are forced to play through every single weapon until you have enough money for the next upgrade but as we said, this game is all about skill, this means that in order to get through Greedy Ghouls, you will need to be both proficient with jump-firing with the shotgun as you are comfortable doing ballistic trajectories with a grenade launcher. Flexibility is the key here, as well as plenty of practice. We do have a few notes about certain weapons that new players ought to keep in mind.
What a superb game this is! Resident Evil 2 is a must have game for all zombie fans old or new. It has a fantastic story along with hours of game play fun as you battle against masses of blood thirsty zombies who are out to kill you. The town is infested with monsters due to a virus outbreak and your job is to help survivors while destroying as many zombies as you can to move along.
I am not one to fault the Resident Evil series as I am a great fan of the stories that have been transferred from film to a fantastic series of games. Resident Evil Deadly Silence is just one in a long list of games that are full of zombie infested fun giving us ardent fans hours of horrific play time as you seek out and destroy the zombie masses that are trying to take over cities or towns all over the world. It has however been criticised by many players for being a rehash of the original Resident Evil game but that said fans will want to add it to their collection that’s for definite.
Resident Evil 4 has arrived at last so us zombie fans can rest easy in the knowledge that the wait is over. This edition is no let down either as it incorporates everything we have come to expect from Resident Evil and more. There is an abundance of blood curdling zombie fun that even the most ardent of fans will find frightening but this is what we want from a zombie barrage so there is no disappointment here.
Sometimes game producers just don’t listen to the fans when it comes to constructive criticism of a release or when suggestions of how games can be improved are made. Resident Evil Zero the first time around had certain features that were at least annoying but could have been resolved before this next release. Sadly this is not the case. What am I going on about? Well the painfully slow mechanism for the creaking doors as an example. You could go out for a stroll and come back in the time it takes for one to open. Slight exaggeration, I know but you get my drift. It is the same with other aspects but I won’t dwell on the negative as despite all this I found the game fun to play.
From Plants vs. Zombies to The Walking Dead, the undead are all the rage these days. After George Romero’s movies, it was the Resident Evil series that put the unwashed, rotting, previously dead masses front and center. Hipster jokes aside, Capcom seemed to know zombies were cool before they were and that spawned a line of games and movies. Due to no small part to Resident Evil 4’s success, Chris Redfield is back in what appears to be a title in the action genre in instead of the traditional survival horror fare. Sure, there are still plague-infested baddies to contend with but the trek through the sweltering desert is no scarier than plowing through the ravaged landscapes in Gears of War. Even Chris is starting to resemble Marcus Fenix. Really, just look at those arms.
It has been a while since we have found a good scenario simulation game, and in Pandemic 2, players are treated to wonderfully made mechanics that provide an interesting simulation of how the world would react to a massive sickness. Do note that this is not a simple zombie-virus infestation game, in fact, it does not necessarily have to be a zombie outbreak at all. In Pandemic, you get to chose what kind of sickness you are spreading (virus, bacteria, parasite) and more importantly, you get to choose the symptoms as well. So if you want the infected to appear perfectly fine and suddenly be attacked by liver failure, then so be it –the game allows you to tweak almost every aspect of the disease.
Not For Everyone
If you have played Uplink: Hackers Elite, Football Manager and similar other titles, then by now, you would be familiar with games that run mostly from menus. You get to read real-time stats getting updated and make game-critical actions –all of which done behind a massive user interface. This means that younger players will be turned off by the game’s stats-based gameplay. Those who appreciate the what-if scenario however, will find themselves enjoying the slow but certain progression of the sickness and they can either react actively to the world’s attempts at holding off and stopping the disease, or players can be active, continuously evolving the disease to make it spread further and kill faster.
What it all boils down into is what you final goal truly is. Do you simply wish to finish the game? Do you want to collect all the trophies? Do you intend to get a really high rank in the leader boards? Those going for a quick run will focus on earning cash, buying the best guns they can get and of course, speeding up the repair skill. This means finishing the game pretty early (around the 20th wave or even earlier) by focusing on repairing every free moment you can get –even in the middle of combat.
Going for all trophies will require you to save up enough cash to buy all the guns, deal out plenty of mine-kills and use the flamethrower to kill a set amount of targets. Not all that bad, considering that the most you will have to do is to hold off on fully repairing the car until you have gotten all the other achievements short of winning the game.
Every time Dude levels up, he gains two skill points to be used for leveling up. Each skill has three levels (the first level requires 1 skill point to learn, the second uses two and the third uses three) –if you concentrate on maxing out a single skill at a time, then you will max it out within three levels.
Our biggest recommendations are Experience up and Money up. These two will make your progress a lot easier–you earn skills and make money faster this way. Get the exp bonus first then go for the money. This will help you earn other skills and buy those powerful guns as early as possible.
When you are not doing anything else, you focus should be on repairing your car. The car start off with full armor and 00.00% repair status. Every millisecond you spend repairing the car increases the repair status –at 100% the car is ready to go. Now, each time an enemy attacks the car, the armor takes damage –repairing an armor damaged car takes a few seconds away as Dude will first bring the armor status back to full prior to resuming work on the repair statues. Lastly, at certain points in the process, you will be prompted to grab several items from the stage (such as the car door and the tires). Once you reach this point, you must walk over to the needed part, lift it up and bring it back to the car. Dude will move slower when bringing a part and you will not be able to jump or fire your gun. So if a wave comes in while you are bringing a part, simply press the repair button to put down the part –you can come back for it once the coast is clear.
The car in the center of the map is not just there to be repaired; you can take advantage of the car’s armor to use as a defensive fort. When on top of the car, only fliers can hurt you (allowing you time to regenerate HP), but all the other enemies will start attacking the car instead. Of course, you will have to fix any damage that the car takes aside from the usual repairs.
Choosing a weapon is a matter of deciding which one works for your playstyle. In general, a good weapon progression would be to get the uzi, then one of the automatic rifles and then end with the minigun. If you are after the achievements, they you will want to get the flamethrower before the minigun –we still recommend skipping over the other guns, you can buy those later on.
Your car is a valuable asset and tool in a world overrun by zombies. Regardless of the cuase of this apocalyptic scenario –be it a biohazard agent developed by some war-mongering multinational company or an ancient curse that magically reanimates the dead, zombies are a constant menace and a threat to all living things. And having a massive chunk of metal on wheels is one of the best ways to get away from them. So when you are stuck in a forest surrounded by the undead, the first thing you would most certainly want to have is a functional car.
