The Horror Geek presents: Run over (not away from) zombies in Zombie Driver

Mike Bracken's picture

If you're tired of shooting zombies in the head and dismembering them with various gardening implements, then perhaps Exor Studios' newest PC title will re-ignite your love of annihilating the undead. The indie Polish developer is hard at work on their first commercial PC release, a game called Zombie Driver. While the title is slightly misleading (the zombies aren't driving), it does promise a great deal of vehicular undead-slaughter. I think that's something we can all get behind.

Zombie Driver is an action driving game with a top down perspective and a dynamic helicopter chase camera. Fight your way through the streets of a zombie infested city to save the survivors of a disastrous chemical accident that changed most of the city's population into mindless brain hungry monsters. Time is your enemy and your car is your weapon as you race through the streets smashing everything in your way including fences, phone booths, street lamps and hordes of zombies. When the gruesomely mutated zombies become too much to handle, buy a new car or get more guns and upgrades installed. You can earn more money for finishing side quests, making kill combos and searching for hidden prizes. Game play is unrestricted and the player can freely roam through the dark streets, alleys and backyards searching for the best shortcuts or hidden power ups.

The game's feature list sounds fairly robust as well. There are six different vehicles and nine upgrades for each of them. The cars can then be equipped with weapons, which also boast numerous upgrades as well. The game promises thousands of zombies to kill and a robust combo system to rack up high scores through the 17 levels of the experience.

Zombie Driver will be available through digital distribution this November. You can learn more about the game by visiting the official website.

Need to see more of Zombie Driver

This game looks simultaneously fun and utterly repetitive. I hope there is more to Zombie Driver than just driving around shooting at hordes of zombies and rescuing "innocents". Maybe some of the more advanced zombies will have their own cars and come after you? :)

This is pretty much what I

This is pretty much what I thought, too. If that's all there is, I'd be tired of the game in about 10 minutes. I didn't see anything in their press release that says there's more to the game than what we see, though, so this may be all they have to offer.

Kind of reminds me of Full Auto with the Project Gotham Kudos system added in for shits and giggles.
