Zombies Ate My Neighbors


“Hey, where’s that scary music coming from? Yikes! It’s Zombies Ate My Neighbors, where you appear in every demented horror flick ever to make you hurl ju-jubes. What are Zeke and Julie doing in a 16-bit game like this?! Trying to save the nice neighbors, cheerleaders and babies from a fate worse than polyester!”


Find your way through 55 horror-filled levels like a grocery store gone bad, a shopping mall awry, a mysterious island and your own back yard. Destroy Zombies, relentless Chainsaw Maniacs, Mummies, Evil Dolls that just won’t die, Lizard Men, Blobs, Vampires, Giant Ants, Martians and more using uzi squirt guns, exploding soda pop, bazookas, weed wackers and ancient artifacts. Also grab power ups-o-rama like secret potions and bobo clown decoys!


Ghoul Patrol


“Zeke and Julie, our intrepid teenagers, visit the Ghosts and Ghouls exhibit at the city library, where they find an old treasure chest containing an ancient spirit book. Naturally, they cannot resist reading it. Suddenly, a horrific snaggle-toothed spirit emerges infesting Metropolis and planning to rewrite history!”


Only you have the power to go back in time to de-spook these zombified historic guys. Terminate them using crossbows, ping-pong ball machine guns, Martian “Heatseeker” guns, and more! Vaporize garbage can ghosts and ninja spirits, rescue bug-eyed librarians and wigged-out pirates, dodge flying books and adolescent-eating plants! Will you get the mighty beastly spirit back into his book and stop the madness? Ghoul Patrol to the rescue!


Let us know your thoughts on this comeback! Will you play it for the first time or will it be a throwback to your childhood?
