Fun and Different Solitare
Lots of fun, and surprisingly challenging.

Luv this game
This is fun. Simple, good graphics, good music and sound. The game is easy in the early play and gets more challenging in later levels. You buy power ups. One trick to make money - go back to earlier level (1 - 3) and play them to make easy money for the later levels. No timed levels, fun mini games. Just enjoyable.

I Love This Game!
I have a few solitaire games to break up the monotony of one HOPA game after the other (HOPAs are my favs). This game is one of the best in the genre. I love the silly, but cute story line; the repetitious, but strangely compelling music; the zany, but adorable graphics; and the easy, yet rewarding game play.
Not being a 'pro' at solitaire, the game was not so easy that I didn't have to strategize a few times, ie. where to spend my coins and which pile to blow up first. I even lost a time or two. It was all in good fun. Getting out of a zombie-infested city and onto a safe island has never been such a hoot.
Btw, at the end, a cartoon girl is 'topless', but she's behind a large grill lid and you can't see anything. You wouldn't even know she was bare if she wasn't holding up a little black object that looks vaguely like a swim top. Nothing to offend or excite, unless you have the most sensitive of sensibilities. I wouldn't have even noticed, except another reviewer made a big deal out of it.
All in all, this is a keeper and one that I will play again. Thanks, Big Fish!

I knew Tofu was evil stuff!
I don't usually have tons of fun with solitaire games since they all seem to be the same 'ol same 'ol, but this game was a riot (I wish we could give 1/2 stars...this would be 4.5#
A man is eating a tofu sandwich when he is turned into a zombie. Serves him right. You go home and find the map your dad left for you for just these occasions #this becomes your game map# and make your way around the city to get to the harbor, jump a ship and get out of there.
Maybe I've played Plants vs. Zombies way, way too much #like, a LOT) but these graphics kind of remind me of that game. There is a good sense of humor throughout and creative graphics showing tangled vines around locked cards, "infected raven" cards who look well, infected. Everything is zombie.
~ Game Options are:
~ Adjust music
~ Adjust Sound
~ Window can be set at 16:6 or 4:3 or windowed
~ Can be set to system cursor, game cursor or touch pad
~ Bounce coins, or don't
You win gold coins as you remove cards, and you can set those to bounce around on the bottom of the screen like ping pong balls. It is incredibly distracting when they do, but then again it makes it harder to concentrate which might be a good thing.)
Music is actually good with a magnificent, rousing and robust classical piece when you clear all cards in a game, creepy-corny zombie music or music with a slightly hip 50s flavor. I actually left the music on which is rare.
There looks to be about 95 different game set ups/screens. If you clear the game you earn 3 stars. Using the map you can go back to or jump around to any game you want. Each game will tell you how many Zombies you have to "kill" to win the hand, so every one doesn't require that you clear the board.
Power ups are earned along the way and include things like extra coins, extra cards to use on the side if you get in a jam, cards that explode, tombstone cards that can be used if there are no matching cards, Zombie Slap cards that remove any card of your choice. You get the idea.
Graphics are large and clear. I really liked this game! Lots going on and funny to play. Good for when your brain needs a break - just be sure to hold on to it :)

Zombies for the Season ... Fun, Relaxing Solitaire Game
I like to play Solitaire when I just want to relax both the body and mind. This game lets you do just that. Some Solitaire games can certainly be more challenging, but this one, while not very challenging is just fun to play. It's the usual play where you add cards to the pile that are either one higher or lower. You get power-up cards and gold to purchase additional power-ups. Throughout the game, you have the usual challenge of having to find cards to unlock piles that have vines around them or other obstacles preventing you from playing until you clear the obstacles.
The graphics/visuals are great! The sound quality is also good but can become annoying. Like most Solitaire games, there is only one level to play. Not much of a storyline, but with Solitaire "who cares?" -- Smile
Expert players may find the game too be to easy, but as I said, I love most Solitaire games and for me, this one is great for filling in time (that I should be using to get some work done). -- Smile

Enjoyable Halloween Solitaire
I enjoyed playing the game and I even like the bouncing balls that drive some people crazy. I like special effects and sounds in my games - very satisfying to be rewarded when you do well.
It is your typical solitaire game - nothing new. If you can afford the power-ups, it's nearly impossible to lose. Some levels without them are almost undoable.
My only complaint is the screen transitions. Every level goes flying by every time you start a new game or go to the store. And the map that you keep being directed to is entirely unnecessary. Both of these features become increasingly annoying the longer you play. And wait until you want to go back and get a higher score on a previous level - every time it loads, it zips to the last level so you have to arrow yourself back to the beginning.
If you like this type of game, and the above stuff doesn't drive you crazy, I think it may be a keeper. I bought it with a credit.

Good Solitaire game
The reason why I gave this a four star is because even though it's more then OK I really didn't love it either. I loved the music good for Halloween and as for the visual, they did an excellent job. Rooms looked realistic. This game has put me in the Halloween spirit. But, the solitaire is straight forward and it's not really challenging. As for the storyline, I't OK. I'm not a fan of zombies'.
Since this is the beginning of October and Halloween is coming up, I'll wait to purchase this. Even though I like this game, I'm going to wait to see if there is something better. If not, then I'll purchase this.

A spooky solitaire for Halloween! (OR THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE)
Who knew tofu would turn you into a zombie??? The developers of this game obviously did! They took the idea of the zombie apocalypse and used their braaaaaiiiiiinnnns to merge it with solitaire. And it's a ton of fun!
On the positive side, the game looks great and the storyline is funny and immersive. At the beginning of each level set (ingeniously tied to your escape plan map) you have to solve a quick little adventure puzzle and this alone kept me playing, wanting to see what the next adventure would be.
On the negative side, the levels play through pretty quickly and after 60 minutes, I had played through 30 of what looked like probably 100ish total levels. I'm hoping they get more challenging as the game goes along, but with the powerful extra cards you can buy, you can make quick work of most of the game.
But overall, a must for any zombie fan! Tofu, anyone???

My review is based on the demo.
I really enjoy this type of solitaire - the one-up-or-down type, with Fairway Solitaire being my absolute favorite. This compares well with that classic game. Instead of being on a golf course, however, you are fleeing for your life from zombies. At the beginning of each chapter, you have to find play a little, easy mini-game, and then you play several levels of the card game to move on. There are power-up cards that you earn as well as extra cards that you uncover. You can also purchase these cards with the gold coins you earn throughout the level.
I certainly had fun playing the game, and will probably buy it. However, I do have two nits to pick. First, there is no 'back' button so that if you miss a play, you can't go back and fix it. Secondly, when you reach the last card in the deck, if it doesn't have a play, the level ends not giving you a chance to use one or more of your extra cards to complete the round. For this reason I had to take away one star. But, as I said, all-in-all a fun game.
