All Zombies Must Die! Steam release date announced

Features fixes and improvements.

Downloadable zombie kill 'em up All Zombies Must Die! launches on Steam, on 12th March, developer doublesix has announced.

The PC version includes fixes and improvements, including a new "treacle" mode that makes it possible to wade through groups of zombies, thus fixing the issue of "zombie swarming". In short, it allows you to get out of previously impossible to get out of situations.

Also, the gate quest structure of the game has been tweaked to make it less repetitive. This, doublesix said, should be keenest felt towards the end of the game.

All Zombies Must Die! Review

But aren't they dead already?

Balance can be a tricky mistress to satisfy. Take All Zombies Must Die, for example. Its core components - a twin-stick shooter with zombies - are so overused that the combination inspires more fatigue than excitement. Clearly, something has to be done to the formula to make it stand out. But add too much, too little or simply the wrong sort of thing, and whatever base pleasures still remain in the twitching top-down zombie shooter corpse can be lost.

Unfortunately, with All Zombies Must Die, developer Doublesix has fallen prey to the last two pitfalls. It's not only added too much clutter to the genre's fragile framework, it's added the sort of clutter that actively detracts from the game's enjoyment.
