Zombie Kill of the Week – Reborn Review and more

GameInfo: Zombie Kill of the Week – Reborn is a challenging, fast paced, 2D survival shooter!


Review: The game in its core is fun, but it really suffers from a bunch of different things:
– Game is by default on 4:3 and a VERY low resolution, str8 ported from mobile without any PC optimization. PC games need a higher resolution. The menu’s make me dizzy as it looks like a mess because its scaled up from 480×320 to 1920×1080. This needs to be addressed and the menus really need to be re-designed for PC platform.
– Some HUD elements are overlapping like red texts in the crafting page making everything very confusing.
– Multiplayer doesn’t seem to be that stable, I’m not sure how its done but people keep disconnecting and there is no real way to have a long enough play session.
– Chat is in mobile design (press button to open string and then enter message) not a good idea. PC version could have a chat box which would fit if the menu’s would be re-designed for bigger screens.
– In overal feels like a mobile game played on a PC screen.

For these reasons I wouldn’t recommend this on the desktop platform, but for mobile. If these changes are addressed then I’d be happy to recommend it.

Verdict: 40/100
