Favorite Flash Games #1

Let's post links to our favorite Flash games, and talk about them for a bit. I'll go first!

My pick is Sean Coopers Boxhead: The Zombie Wars. It's an action game from a isometric perspective, allowing players to wander around the map in two dimensions. Boxy zombies spawn from each side (based on the design of the map) that you can kill with a variety of weapons. Your selection of weapons is upgraded as you kill more zombies, but the zombies grow in quantity and complexity as the game goes on. Eventually the player is swarmed and dies, but not until a lot of zombie blood has been spilled.

What The Zombie Wars brings to the Boxhead franchise (which also contains the spectacular Boxhead: 2Play Rooms) is base building. Through a combination of explosive barrels, barricades and turrets, you can construct a base to help kill off zombies. This adds a new layer of strategy to the Boxhead games, making The Zombie Wars my favorite entry in the franchise.

Boxhead: The Zombie Wars is a wonderfully addictive game that combines visceral action with tactical know-how. A must-play for anyone who likes action games or zombies. And everyone likes zombies.

  1. This game is terrible. They only allow you to shoot in 8 directions, which is incredibly frustrating. Not to mention that they only allow you to shoot in the direction that you're walking.

    This game could take a clue from every other game like this on the internet and allow you to use the mouse to aim and shoot independently of movement.
