16-Bit Gems #6: Zombies Ate My Neighbors

The Commodore joins Roo in this very special episode for a 2-player review of Zombies Ate My Neighbors. Continuing our celebration of Halloween-fest-tober 2009, we take you back to when Lucasarts was a game studio in its prime. High off of the success of titles such as the Monkey Island series, they created what on the surface would seem to be a standard action game involving two teenagers fighting zombies. But when you add in a bevy of weapons, tons of stages, and that classic off-the-wall humor, the product is much more than the sum of its parts. Kinda like Frankenstein.
