12-27 Daily Sketch: Zombie Nation!
Today's NES inspired daily sketch is a weird one... Zombie Nation! Get this... You play a giant floating samurai head shooting eyeballs and barfing on buildings, little soldiers and planes and random shit... Here's the best synopsis I could find...
The plot of Zombie Nation takes place in 1999, when a meteor known as "Darc Seed" crashes in the Nevada desert. Darc Seed then shoots magnetic rays and turns the people of the United States into zombies. Darc Seed also brings the Statue of Liberty to life to follow its commands. The magnetic rays also allows Darc Seed to control many deadly weapons, including the most powerful weapon of all - the legendary samurai sword Shura. The head of the samurai, Namakubi hears of Shura falling into Darc Seed's clutches. He then heads to the United States to destroy Darc Seed, free the American people from the looming zombification, and reclaim
the samurai sword Shura..."
Pretty f'n strange game. I didn't really notice any zombies per se... You fight a reclining alien and the statue of liberty, but no zombies... If you like side scrolling shooters, you might get a kick out of this one. Its pretty easy to find a ROM for this online. Check it out, its a weird one.
