It is uncommon to fire all six shots of a revolver with great suddenness when one would probably be sufficient. (fearsome flash friday fun). Battle zombies and contemplate he whose name cannot be spoken. No, not him.

I think this might be a later version, though. And it's still a great game.

At a new url, which is why search didn't find it. Very fun, though.

Killed 94 zombies, switched to my shotgun, and discovered I had no shells. Whoops.

How do you switch to the shotgun? I found the shotgun, found the shells, but...

Love this game.

If memory serves, you're better off sticking with the revolver.

The shift key switches weapons.

I got 99, would have gotten more had I changed my monitor's mode for level 10.

wow the reload time on that shotgun sure sucks.

Great game. 123 first try - didn't switch guns fast enough.

I don't know what I'm doing wrong but I can never get more than three or four. They only seem vulnerable in one spot and the closest ones are often too close to aim your gun low enough.

Is it just me, or is shooting them while they're standing up the simplest way of killing them (with one shot)? Now, if there were a quick way to reload....

Oh.

Click on the zombie.

Much Better.

Wasn't this on MeFi around a year ago?

Shoot them as they're coming up from the ground. One shot takes any zombie out when they're rising up.

The trick to the thin ones is to shoot them in the leg the first time. They drop down. Shoot them once more to kill them.

The big ones require three shots so best to kill them while they're emerging.

Also if you've 4 rounds left or less and there are no zombies shoot up all your remaining ammo and reload.

CynicalKnight was right. If you click ON the zombie and fire, you never miss. That kind of made it not so fun and challenging any more.

The big ones take 3 shots to kill until you get further on in the game. Then they take 4, 5, even 6. After about 525 zombies killed, the game gets hard. (I played this a lot when it was listed the first time.)

Got to 53 on my first game. Didn't try the shotgun. Simple but nicely creepy.

There's no way I'm going anywhere near that game.

I thought about posting this when I found it around a month ago, but a search for 'de-animator' seemed to work fine for me.

I was at around 135 when the last shotgun round before I had to reload missed, even though I clicked on the guy

/sob

It would be nice if you could switch weapons when your gun is empty, rather than after his tedious reloading. Anyone with experience killing zombies knows that you switch between weapons before reloading when you're in a crunch. Geeze.

SPOILER!!!!



press tab to cycle between zombies, ENTER to kill each one without using ammo

ok, can someone pls tell me how to switch to the shotgun and then back to revolver?
posted by forwebsites at 4:12 PM on October 13, 2006


At some point (around 400), you're just aiming into the mass of zombie bodies and emptying the revolver as fast as you can. Aim low to knock down the skinny ones.

Sooner or later you lose.

What this game needs is a "found minigun".

*shift* switches between weapons.

Another thing that's important: You can shoot all six shots out of your gun, but it won't reload until you click a seventh time. You can use this to your advantage by shooting all six, then quickly switching to the shotgun to get a few more shots off with no lag time.

true, it's a double, but this has nostalgia tie-ins... finding out how cool the woman was that I was dating (and have now been with for a long time) when she saw me struggling with the newly undead and shouted "It's a zombie -- shoot it in the head!!"

217 on first go but I did play it for a good 20 minutes the first time it was posted.

Aw, dreamsign, that's sweet. You two may end up being the last couple alive and repopulating the earth after a zombie plague. I for one would welcome a picture of the pair of you in your zombie-slayin' duds.
