Zombie games have become extremely popular in this day and age. One of the reasons for the popularity is the rise of zombie movies and the mention of zombies in popular culture. There is a great demand for games which pit humans against zombies and a battle is raged for the survival of the human race. While there are a number of games which offer good battlegrounds, the storyline is normally lacking in most of the games. Zombie Catchers is one zombie game which offers a fantastic storyline coupled with missions which are fun and captivating.
Zombie Catchers puts a real focus on the story and this is why it starts with an introductory session which provides some background about the main characters and the main challenge in the game. The basic premise of the game is that the Earth has been infested with zombies and two intergalactic characters want to build their catering business by capturing the zombies to not just free up the Earth but to also enhance their food and catering business which uses zombie meat. It's an interesting play on the normal zombie games with the idea of catching zombies linked with improvement in the food business extremely funny too.
The game basically puts out a very simple mission for you. You have to catch zombies during missions once a location has been found which is infested by zombies. Once you complete the mission and capture the zombies, the captured zombies would be used to make juices and other food items which will be served to the humans. Both catching zombies and serving food would help you earn coins which can then be used to find impressive battle gear for catching more zombies and to buy better equipment for the food business.
The zombie game has different levels with most of the items in the shop simply being unlocked after you have gone to a certain level. There are five different kinds of zombies present in the game and you will come up against them as and when your level increases. The challenges increase as the game progresses with zombies using protection against being captured while their speed improves too. This is great as the game then also allows better gadgets which improve your chances of catching the more difficult zombies as well. You will also unlock better machines which can provide better juices and slushes while you can also upgrade machines to get more juice out of a lesser number of zombies, as well as the game, proceeds further. The game's controls are very simple as well while the graphics are on-point too.
The only criticism over the game can be that it puts a restriction of gathering Plutonium to find locations which have been infested with zombies. While the game actually offers Plutonium on doing successful missions and there is also Plutonium offered when you improve your level, there is still a low chance that you will have enough Plutonium to play back-to-back missions. This is because the game normally takes 10 minutes to find you a new location where zombies are present and it also requires eight 'plutoniums' in order to find the location right away. The game does offer another way around the issue by offering you to watch videos in exchange for Plutonium and this is probably the only way to quickly get around to capturing the ill-intentioned zombies who have taken over the world!
