Hot Zomb

When it comes to computer games, I’m keen to try almost anything. I’ve even played those really old school games like mahjong and chess back in the days, it really comes down to the execution and whether the game can bring something new and interesting to the genre. That being said, my favorite type of games are action and RPG games on PC. I used to like arcade -type games more, but there have not been many in the recent years, at least not so much in the free games niche.

I’ve been playing a little bit this game called Hot Zomb. I don’t really understand why the name is cut off like that, but basically, it is a zombie shooting game. The game reminds me a bit of another one which had all those Marvel characters fighting against the villains. I could not find the name of that game now but will update if someone tips me off or I somehow find it from the archives.

Anyway, Hot Zomb is a cartoon style isometric zombie shooting game. You will move your character around the 3D scene and shoot the zombies that try to block your path. You can also target some exploding barrels which gives a nice tactical advantage against some of the enemies. At the bottom right there’s an icon for the shop. There are four types of weapons you can purchase with the “Z coins”.

You will have two sidekicks for each level that will be controlled by the computer, so make use of them when you position your character on the level. You can also switch your character just by pressing 1, 2 or 3. It might be a good idea to load each character with a different kind of weapon. The game is rather simple, but it’s the visual style that makes it interesting. I think it’s a good choice from the developer as well since making this game more realistic would have probably been a lot harder.

Verdict for Hot Zomb: 7/10

I would say that Hot Zomb is entertaining, but it becomes a bit boring after a while. The story could be more interesting and more variety to the games. For example, there are only four weapon types and not that much difference with the zombies either. It is not bad, but feels that it is somewhat halfway done. With a little bit more work, this could be really good casual game. For me personally, this wont beat Alien Shooter though.
