The traps...

Posted on Sep 15, 2010

Each chapter of the game will feature at least one trap which will make it much easier or which will be required in order to advance in the level.

All of these traps are different in their setup, and today we want to give you the first example: In the prison, there is a water pond at the feet of the electric chair. By luring the Zombies to the chair and then activating the high voltage switch, you can grill the Zombies at this location, avoiding the deadly close combats required otherwise. Other traps are very different, but they do have one thing in common: They are all great fun :)

You can find all screenshots here.
