Teenage Zombies for DS

Fighting alien brains.

Ignition has announced a new DS platform game where you play as a trio of teenage zombies fighting off an invasion of weird floating alien brains.

Developed by InLight Entertainment and due out in the spring, "Teenage Zombies: Invasion of the Alien Brain Thingys!" is based around the idea that while the world of men has succumbed to the ray-guns and mind control of The Big Brain and his army of Brain Thingys, the titular teen zombs, who sprout from a graveyard disturbed by the invasion, are immune to his tools and rather fond of munching on his minions.

The story, said to be keen to parody the zombie genre and 50s science fiction, will play out in a comic-book style, while gameplay will take advantage of all the DS' various "thingys", with stylus mini-games, double-screen boss battles and puzzle challenges to complement the side-scrolling action at its heart.

Ignition USA's Ajay Chadha reckons the game offers "a uniquely humorous and satirical take on comics and retro sci-fi" and calls in "a solid platformer and some truly entertaining mini-games". Doesn't actually sound bad to us - what do you reckon, troops?
