They say when hell is full that the dead shall walk the Earth again. While the concept of zombies is nothing new, dating back centuries and over multiple cultures, the public’s fascination is something rather recent. This horror development reflects a cultural mindset of an enemy coming from within the group. Mechanically, zombies make for the perfect monster since they are both easy to kill, but nearly impossible to stop in a large enough group of ... things.
Imagine being able to control that sheer force of terror by starting a chain reaction of zombies and watching society crumble like fleshy dominos. That’s the idea behind Infectonator: World Dominator.
Okay. You got me. There’s nothing really frightening about this flash game other than the fact that it’s scary good. This highly pixilated world is ripe for the taking as you watch the men and women scurry around the area. For the most part, you get one shot to zap a couple of people and watch the chain reaction. Citizens flee in terror as cops and heroes (some of them super) try to take down your creation.
Ripping through the allotted citizens and razing the town earns you cash to improve your army by making them faster or live longer. There are even special zombies such as a Michael Jackson, Ronald McDonald, and Santa that you can deploy to take out more people or the military. Either way, 8-bit blood will splatter and you will be there to revel in the chaos.
Infectonator gives you just enough to make it through each of the challenges while making it a joy to go back to earlier levels in order to slaughter the living. While the bit of randomness can at times work against you, it’s a quick and easy way to see how the virus would spread given the right circumstances. Sometimes it’s just fun to be evil.
