"Zombie defense" game Dead Block shambles onto Xbox Live Arcade on 6th July, and PlayStation Network on 20th July, publisher Digital Reality has announced.

Developed by Candygun Games, the tongue-in-cheek title sees you attempting to kick zombies off your turf using a variety of traps and weapons.

Set in 1950s USA, it follows three unlikely heroes in the midst of a zombie outbreak apparently caused by the advent of rock 'n' roll.

You'll choose from Boy Scout Mike Bacon, construction worker Jack Foster or no-nonsense meter maid Foxy Jones, each of whom boasts their own unique special attack.

"We’re a huge fan of zombies, but we’re even bigger fans of finding the most creative ways of disposing of the undead buggers," commented Digital Reality exec Balazs Horvath.

"Dead Block has been a dream project of ours, and we’re elated to finally unleash it upon the world."

It'll set you back your local equivalent of €9.99 or 800 Microsoft Points. Trailer below.
