Using an array of up to 11 lethal weapons including assault rifles, flame throwers and a teddy bear filled with C4 explosives, up to four players can play locally or via the Internet to stop the zombie attacks and rescue survivors as they compete for the highest scores. Players can use a chainsaw to melee zombies and protect themselves against becoming one of the undead. As an added line of defense, players can also use environmental hazards to crush, burn, slice, or cause other types of destruction on the masses of zombies.
"Konami is committed to providing original, quality entertainment through our diverse offering of console, handheld and downloadable content," said Anthony Crouts, Vice President of Marketing for Konami Digital Entertainment. "As a downloadable title, Zombie Apocalypse delivers all the fun and action of a console game at a fraction of the cost."
