Niche Spotlight – Zombotron

This is Niche Spotlight. In this column, we regularly introduce new games to our fans, so please leave feedback and let us know if there’s a game you want us to cover!

Today’s Spotlight is Zombotron, the latest installment in the long-running series by Ant.Karlov and Armor Games.

Zombotron has been around for a while as a fairly successful series of free flash games, but this latest installment is a fully-featured commercial release.

You play as the ruthless mercenary Blaze Rush on his latest job, which brings him to a dangerous planet full of zombies to investigate an ancient crash site. Slaughter the undead with an arsenal of guns, gadgets, and vehicles, or use the game’s physics engine to get more creative with your carnage. You can check out the launch trailer above.

Zombotron is available on Windows PC and Mac via Steam for $14.99.

Here’s a rundown of the game:


A brand new entry to the Zombotron series!

Blaze Rush is a mercenary desperate for a job. In search of an easy payday he follows a distress beacon to the surface of a dangerous planet and the remains of an ancient crash site. There he finds a mystery that will test his strength, his resolve, and every gun in his arsenal. Zombotron features an arsenal of weapons and armor, enemies that hate each other as much as they hate you, and really nice explosions for an experience that’s out of this world.

Why go for headshots when you can drop a zombie down an elevator shaft? Or crush them beneath a pile of rubble. Or set of an elaborate daisy-chain of dynamite around them. Or run them over in an ATV. Or… you get the idea.

Features

  • Crush foes with elevators, send them flying with explosives, run them down in vehicles, and much, much more.
  • Lock and load with a variety of weapons to become a consummate badass.
  • Discover the secrets of the planet Zombotron in an engaging, camp-tastic storyline.
  • Customize Blaze’s armor to be the space-faring badass you’ve always wanted to be.
