Though its title pretty much gives nothing away about the nature or sublime quality of the gameplay, the Boxhead series has made somewhat of a name for itself in the third-person shooter genre, carving itself a comfortable niche with its highly distinctive style and unmistakable format. Boxhead: The Nightmare sees the inevitable return of the superbly angular aesthetic, endless waves of zombies, and other evil folk, but most importantly of the defense game that through sheer brilliance of design and simplicity in gameplay has become synonymous with quality in the flash gaming market.
The Walking Dead is a really successful brand. The comic books achieved a solid cult following on its own. The AMC TV series garnered a massive amount of fans to the show. So when it was first announced that Telltale games was working on a point and click style Walking Dead game series, we were not all that surprised, and frankly, we did not expect much of it –until the first glorious game out. And from that point onwards, the episodic Walking Dead video game took a life of its’ own (pun intended).
The first instalment of the Resident Evil games this edition was released in 1996 but then rereleased in 2002 with upgraded graphics, music plus plenty of new game play features.

Play this one if you dare you certainly won’t be sorry plus you will have laughs and hours of entertainment along the way.
This game as you would expect is set in the Resident Evil Universe with teams completing missions against the clock to free the place of zombies. There are twenty missions across six levels that get more and more difficult as you progress. The first few are more like tutorials so you can reduce that number by three or four in reality. The game has the time honoured features of Resident Evil the Mercenaries but with great 3D effects making it a worthy release in this fabulous format for the zombie genre.
What other way could you run around the place blasting at the enemy while taking great delight in blowing them to smithereens?

Burn Zombie Burn is the ultimate zombie game that gives all fans the opportunity to blast those freaks into oblivion! You play as the character Bruce who is trying to save his girlfriend from the zombie hoards by any means available.

Dead Island Special Edition follows up the original Dead Island with an added extra which is The Blood Bath Arena. Set on the island of Banoi a sumptuous tropical paradise with golden beaches and beautiful swaying palm trees it is a fantastic zombie shooting game that fans will love.

John Marston was a great hero in the first edition of the Red Dead games so it is with great delight that I can announce the release of the sequel Red Dead Undead Nightmare.
