Gamers Digital has announced a new title today for WiiWare. The game is Zombii Attack, an arcade survival game that will be launching sometime this Spring. It will cost 500 Wii Points and carry an E + 10 rating. Powered by the Unity 3 game engine, Zombii Attack will have you playing as a “fortunate survivor trying to last in an infected metropolitan city over-flowing with hungry zombies who want to munch on you for lunch. Armed with a slingshot and the laws of physics, survivors use their Wii Remote in a realistic natural motion in order to load and fire the slingshot with items such as anvils, tires, experimental highly-explosive z-bombs and even the undead themselves.”
While playing, gamers must keep five things in mind.
Improvisation: Use zombies, explosives and other items to destroy zombies and their hideouts before they eat you.
Cash: Earn money destroying zombies.
Firepower: Always stock up with armor and improve your slingshot. Remember to show no mercy because the zombies want you for lunch so you must destructive items at them and their secret hideouts.
Collect: Dr. Zii is looking for a cure. You are on the lookout for a certain type of zombie. You must collect this zombie as they contain elements needed by the Dr. to create a cure.
Defense: You can upgrade your barrier to better repeal zombies and repair it when damaged by zombies.
The game sounds kind of fun and should do well as a WiiWare title. It would probably also fit nicely on the XBLA. I generally enjoy these survival arcade games and I’ll likely check this one out when it releases, seems promising.
