This week: Zombie Ramming
Sometimes you've just got to man up, jump in a car and go off and save the world from the zombie horde using the front end of your busted little Vauxhall Nova...or something to that effect. Zombie Ramming is a delightfully simple game - arrow keys and spacebar to boost - that sees you leaping behind the wheel of a small variety of automobiles and telling the undead to piss off Carmageddon-style. There are 30 or so 'levels', although this mainly involves rehashing four small playing areas with a wider assortment of nightmarish fiends every, with each gruesome bit of roadkill giving you points and cash, the latter of which you can use to pimp your ride and expand your garage.
The music is fantastically epic, all creepy organs layered over the top of wailing choristers and menacing drums, and it gives what is actually a pretty average game a wonderful B-movie feel. The graphics are nothing really to write home about, but that's not exactly the point. There's claret in abundance, the zombies proving surprisingly sanguine-filled, and you'll want to avoid the larger blood pools simply because your car will become bogged down and begin moving slower, allowing the zombie horde to latch onto your mobile death machine and start tearing it to shreds.
Zombie Ramming, much like Ronseal, does exactly what it says on the tin - you ram zombies, that's pretty much it. But this little game makes our Click To Play list because it's a wonderful diversion. It doesn't pretend to be anything that it's not, instead eschewing innovation for a kind of simple purity. It's hilarious fun and the little shooting mini-games and boss battles are welcome little interludes that help to break the game up, making it a perfect stress relieving title for one of those days.
