Hallowe'en Countdown: Top Spooky Games #1!

Hallowe'en is right around the corner -- and to help you get in the mood, over the next few days Curious Comics will be counting down the Top 5 Spooky Games to help you make this October as creepy as possible!

Top Hallowe'en Games #1: Zombies!!!

Admit it - you saw this one coming a mile away! Really, the #1 slot on the Curious Comics Hallowe'en Games Countdown couldn't have gone to anything else... Zombies!!! has everything you need to turn a ho-hum evening into a rapid-fire night on the edge -- full of laughs, near-misses and end-of-the-world goodness.

Zombies!!! puts you in the middle of the action as you try to escape the ever-advancing zombie horde. Players must use a combination of wits and firepower to be the first to the heliport and escape... the problem is, the heliport is hard to find, while the zombies are everywhere and your opponents would really prefer if you didn't swipe that chopper and head for the hills before they do...

Over the past few years, the kooky game designers at Twilight Creations have made the end of the world a one-stop shopping event. We've seen several optional expansions for the basic Zombies!!! game, granting players the chance to explore nasty new locations like sewers, army bases, shopping malls and (perhaps the most terrifying of all) the circus. We've also seen stand-alone variants for the game -- titles like MidEvil deliver an Army of Darkness-ish horror experience, while Humans!!! allows you to experience un-life from the zombies' (admittedly somewhat one-sided, brains-obsessed) point of view. In short, the award-winning Zombies!!! and its extended family of games offers something gruesome for everyone. What more could you want for Hallowe'en get-together?

Happy trick-or-treating!
