This is Zombotron. You can scavenge for items and kill the undead in this Flash game. Your less-advanced mechanical brethren may even shoot you on site, as they are only programmed to detect motion. Welcome to Zombotron.

Needs more circles.

And light jazz.

I guess I'll stay of that site, then.

Great game! I feel like the unattainable is unknown.

Site, premises, line of sight, line of mind...

i was hoping that was related to a different zomb, but thanks for reminding me to check in on this site.

Anything is possible at Zombotron... or not.

This is pretty good. Nice use of physics.

I was expecting Robotron with zombies, but this is pretty cool too.

Fun. The shotgun loading sound as I head off to kill the undead is so satisfying.

I feel like I can do anything at Zombotron, anything at all.

Apparently the X key kills you. Thanks a lot for telling me that in advance, game.

Cool seeming game marred by infuriatingly poor control scheme/control response.

Shame. That could have been decent.

out of site, out of brainssssss

This is great! The physics are deployed really well, which is hard to do. Also, accidentally blowing up elevators can make things tricky. Managed to rescue myself at one point by shooting out a bridge and leaping from it after making it swing. So that was fun.

Also, the turret things are terrifyingly lethal.

The position of the 'X' key and its use to Self Destruct was a little frustrating.. I accidentally hit it twice.

Someone set up us the bomb! Am I doing it right guys?

Is this in any way related to zombo.com?

Ha! Bitten by the first law of grammar snark.

Read that as "grammar shark." That's actually a great mental image, with the "Jaws" theme and everything... pedants lurking just under the surface, waiting

Pretty cool and well designed for a flash game. The gameplay reminds me a lot of classic Doom.

Listen guys, this is not Zombo.com, and the only limit is not yourself!

That game was very fun. It reminded me of Abuse.
posted by TheKM at 10:48 PM on July 14, 2011


It failed to load level one... Is that the joke? I can't tell if it's the usual crappy Flash or crappy metagame.

GET OUT OF MY HEAD!

*sigh*
I keep getting the Flash dialog asking to store information locally. It doesn't accept "No" for an answer. The only way to get rid of the dialog is say "Yes".

Thanks Dalek. Now I can't get the kindergartner off my computer.
