Plight of the Zombie
Charming and Original
Refreshing to play a game that has a new format/concept! I'd put this game more under a strategy or arcade category than time management. Plot the path of your zombie(s) through warehouse corridors in efforts to eat brains and turn those menacing humans into your zombie friends! - requires strategy and timing. Control four different zombie characters/personalities each with unique special powers!
Great little game so why only the 4 stars? Not many hours of game time and controlling the movement of your zombies is a bit awkward/difficult...found myself yelling at the screen "No! That's not fair! I didn't mean to do that!"

Family game with zombies. Feel sympathy for the Zombies? Yes, you do.
The game is simple enough to start but progress to more difficulty. Fun Strategy. Help zombies get the brains, turn people into zombies to help you. Sounds simple enough, right? HA ha... Don't get stuck, shot or miss your chance at the brains just waiting for you. This game has humor as well, and you really start to like the poor zombies that need brains. You have to be a strategist to help the zombies get to the floating brains, objects are in the way, people might shoot you or you just might not have the maze figured out in time not to starve. Replay value is middle of the road, but you can replay a level until you master it; which I suggest for the early level so you can play higher levels a little better planned. I bought this game, I thought at first it was kids game lame BUT quickly changed my mind once I was pass the tutorial, which I suggest you follow before diving in. I've played hours. My 7 year old grandson has played at his level. Family game with zombies.

Good fun at first...
The problem with this game is that the controls are just awful. You find yourself in situations where you mess up because you can't click the right zombie in time and they shoot you, you collide with objects in odd ways, etc.
There are two, easy things this game could've done to be less aggravating: Allow for a "lock on target" function. As in, if you hover the green circle over a human, your zombie will follow the given path, but then keep moving from the "follow human" set-point to the human it was set on. Allow for a "select group" function. Click and drag a green box to select multiple zombies. Then select an ending point, marked with a green circle. All targeted zombies will move to, or as close to, said point. This would stop those situations in which you infect a person and then can't move your previous zombie and new zombie out of another gunman's line of fire, or where they're turning to aim, in time.

Nifty little port
This started out as a mobile game, so it was interesting to see it available on BFG PC downloads. The port is decent, but the fact that you can't turn off the music is unacceptable. The sounds a nice but the music isn't so great, so this is why I have an issue with the fact that it can't be turned off. Besides this, the gameplay is quite solid, the graphics are top notch, and the number of levels is decent. I personally found the action a bit repetitive, since you are basically doing the same thing each level, within an increasing difficult setting. Those who like strategy games and puzzle games would love this one. Zombie fans in general should also enjoy this game a lot. Overall, I think I'll be playing this one again, when I am bored of my regulars.

This could be a good game if ...
This is a very fun game that plays well. However, there are two things that detract from it. (1) You cannot create and save a profile. That's not good if more than one person uses the computer to play games or if you want to compare different strategies or styles of play. (2) The items that can be bought in the store are only decorations and do not add value to the game. They do not make your zombie run faster, jump higher, fly, become invisible, or hit harder.
I really hope the developers re-visit this game and improve the features I cited above. That would make it a more clever and more likeable game.

I'm a big fan of "fun" zombie games, so this looked like a win for me. The object of the game is to gather the brains and turn the townspeople into fellow zombies. It was simplified by just dragging your zombie around. No real creativity or challenge other than avoiding the gun path of some of the townspeople. Really not engaging and rather boring for me. I didn't even finish the trial and it's definitely not a buy for me.

BAD BAD BAD
Probably THE worst BF game that I ever played.
No point, no instruction, no fun!
