Review of Free Flash Game: Boxhead Zombie Wars

Boxhead Zombie Wars is a shooter game controlled with only one stick and one button. It is currently available on the iPad, iPod, and iPhone devices for $2.99. It is the Boxhead series’ 5th installment. Before it became a popular shooter game on mobile devices, Boxhead Zombie Wars was a web game developed by Sean Cooper. The game was published by MEDL Mobile, who also published the popular Fruit Blast and Jungly Jump.

In Boxhead Zombie Wars, you shoot hoards of undead zombies on three maps with three difficulty levels. Your primary goal is to avoid getting killed by the zombies and stay alive as long as possible. The mobile version of Boxhead Zombie Wars allows you to use your own music as the game’s background music as you play. The three difficulty levels modify the quantity and speed of the zombies that attack you. Boxhead Zombie Wars offers plenty of variety on how you want to kill the hoards of zombies coming at you. The game has a total of 11 weapons. The handgun works fine if you want the game to be more challenging, but the shotgun is better for killing a bunch of zombies each shot. You can also call an airstrike to wipe out all the zombies in the field. Careful timing of the airstrike is very important if you want to stay alive in this game. You can also place barricades to manage the zombies’ path. You can also set-up some turrets that help you dispatch the nasty undead. All of the weapons need ammo except for the handgun. Health and ammo pickups regularly appear on the map.

Boxhead Zombie Wars also have Devils as the mini bosses. They can breathe fire and are very dangerous. They give a huge point boost if you manage to kill them. If you prefer to only kill zombies, you can choose to remove Devils from the game by turning them off in the options menu. There are some notable issues when playing Boxhead Zombie Wars on a handheld device. The game’s menus are a bit clunky and sometimes it does not respond to your touch. The default pause button was often unresponsive so I ended up having to use the weapons screen to pause the game. The game characters also become paralyzed for a bit when hit. This means that you can easily kill a Devil by shooting him repeatedly, or you will surely die when you’re attacked by two zombies at the same time. The game also has a few bugs. One serious bug is that the game occasionally stops after you complete a level, leaving you unable to continue the game.

Overall, the game was fun to play but the price $2.99 is a bit too much. There are a lot of better games priced at $2.99 and you can play this game for free on the web without any issues. Still, if you don’t mind a few touchscreen issues and bugs, Boxhead Zombie Wars can be a lot of fun.
