Cubicle Worker Zombie Slayer (Free) by Edison Chadwick is a funky zombie shooter game with an unlikely hero. I imagine that the day began like any other one. There you are, sitting at your desk and contemplating if it would be a work-related incident if you smashed your head into your computer out of frustration and boredom. Suddenly, there are zombies filling your building. People are being eaten. Others are running and screaming in terror. You need a weapon. What do you have handy? A stapler. Yeah, that’ll work.
You refuse to be zombie fodder. All of those horror movies and video games have prepared you for this moment. With the left joystick controlling movement and the right joystick aiming your endless stream of staples, you are set to take on the undead. The only drawback to your stapler of doom is that it is a short range weapon. Obviously, the zombies have to be pretty close, or your staples would fall uselessly to the floor.
By the time you’ve got the hang of your impromptu weapon, the building is empty of people. They’ve either been turned to the undead or fled. You’ll need to make your way through the maze of walls and cubicles to find the exit door. These levels are long and involved, so it’s going to be quite the fight to get there.
Luckily, there are health packs and food to keep your strength up. The health packs increase the green bar at the top of the screen, and food affects the orange one. You can find those in abundance during the office levels. The side scroller levels are a little more sparse when it comes to resources.
This game doesn’t have one point of view. Some levels are a top-down perspective, and others are a side-scroller view. The controls also change when you move to the side-scroller view. You have directional arrows on the left and a jump button on the right. Personally, I found the side-scroller levels to be more difficult.
Cubicle Worker Zombie Slayer is a strange combination of two different viewpoints. It also has a unique weapon that I can honestly say I’ve never used in a zombie game before. There are other unique levels you can play like space, neighborhoods, or cars. This is definitely a fun zombie game for undead enthusiasts.
Cubicle Worker Zombie Slayer is an iPhone app, and it’s available in the App Store for FREE!
