Internet Game Spotlight: Boxhead: The Zombie Wars

Zombie fever has swept the gaming community (or at least this blog) what with Left 4 Dead coming out. Until you get your four-fingered hand on a copy though, feed your zombie hunger with this excellent flash game, Boxhead: The Zombie Wars. This is the 5th Boxhead game to be made, but it’s definitely the best. The premise is simple, and the gameplay is addicting – the ingredients of an internet game hit.

You control a rectangular little dude left on his own to fight off a never-ending horde of zombies, mummies, devils, and the like coming at you. There are two modes, “Classic” and “Defense”, but it seems to me that the only difference between the two is that in “Defense” you start off with a barricade already set up around you. Those who choose “Classic”, where you’re just placed in an open field and begin there, can set up barricades eventually when they acquire the right items dropped by fallen enemies, but good luck doing so with so many zombies around! There is a nice variety of weapons for plowing through your opposition, from the standard pistols and shotguns to rocket lauchers, turrets, and explosive barrels. All in all, the game is good, simple fun. A bit bloody, but when you’re fighting off as many undead as this, that’s completely understandable. The other Boxhead games are also worth a look, even though they are pretty much shallower versions of Zombie Wars. At least there’s one that lets you play co-op, with two people at the keyboard – something even this can’t brag about.

    Left 4 Dead is a co-op oriented first-person shooter, where you play as survivors trying to escape from the zombie apocalypse. It’s all about teamwork and fighting together.
