Onslaught of the Electric Zombies: Zombie Minesweeper
September 8th, 2009
Minesweeper is one of the things I miss from running Windows. I’m sure there are browser versions available, but it’s just not the same as opening up that friendly little window and clicking around, only to have my butt blasted across the room. Metaphorically, anyhow. But for a zombiefied Minesweeper style game, I might just be willing to venture into the land of the Internet… and that’s exactly what Onslaught of the Electric Zombies is. Instead of mines? Yep. Zombies.
The concepts are the same as in the classic, so you will of course recognize all the numbered blocks and the dangers around them. But Onslaught introduces a few elements that take the clone beyond the numbers, like energy points. You start each puzzle with the points–essentially life points–and the longer it takes you to escape the puzzle, the more likely it is you’ll encounter zombies who’ll drain your precious points away. No leisurely clicking and clearing here; in Onslaught, you’d better get yourself to the door and on to safety.
Onslaught of the Electric Zombies is free to all, but only runs on Windows.
