The Game: Your Favorite Stew, Guaranteed!
So you want to know what’s in Zombie Soup?
Of course the main ingredient would be some awesome top-down twin-stick shooting with a moderate amount of the cliche “damsel in distress” story, add a pinch of puzzle-solving, sprinkle some classic hack-and-slash actions, and stir with all the deadly zombies and god-knows-what creatures, resulting in a satisfyingly intense and exciting gameplay experience!
Developed by AeonSparx Interactive from Malaysia, Zombie Soup won third place in the “PC Indie Pitch” and was also nominated for several awards, including Best Game Design, Best Technology, and Best Audio, in the “Level Up” competition.
The Background: In a Crooked Little Town…
In order to rescue Ashley, a young girl he had also just met in this unfamiliar town, Ricky strolled into (or is thrown into?) an unexpected adventure, with the help of a mysterious talking skull named MC Skully. Waiting for him will be hordes of zombies, intricately designed challenges, and ridiculously tough bosses with some of the most absurd abilities.
The Combat: LOCK N’ LOAD!
Who knows! This town seems like a mega-arsenal!
Whether you are a cool-headed sniper, close-quarters combat specialist, or grandmaster explosive engineer, you’ll find plenty of fun in Zombie Soup. We have not only gathered “conventional firearms” such as rifles, sniper rifles, SMGs, shotguns, etc., but also a ton of melee weapons
