Review: Bunny the Zombie Slayer

I know Easter’s over, but in Bunny the Zombie Slayer you’ll be able to relive Easter over everyday (if you wanted). Watch out though because Easter could be over faster than you think [cues the dramatic symphony orchestra]. The work of one who slays zombies is never truly complete and who said that it couldn’t be a cute and adorable little bunny rabbit with a basket full of Easter eggs who is out to save the day. I don’t see you out there putting an end to all of the foul beasts who arose from the dirt. Oh yeah, that might be due to it not happening yet.
I definitely see the Easter bunny in a different light now after playing Bunny the Zombie Slayer but the real question that needs to be asked is do you want to purchase this title to add to your collection of iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad games? Let’s find out.
Okay, I’ll give you a few seconds while you process that. Yes, this game is about a bunny rabbit who slays zombies by throwing eggs at them. Simple; I like that concept but there really was no story and I was fine with that because I was aiming and throwing colored eggs at waves of zombies and trying not to let the zombies attack the little children in the front lawn. Do you think you have what it takes to take out as many waves of flesh-eating zombies as you can? If you don’t, Easter will be over and we don’t want that. You’ll need to start from the beginning and try to beat your high score again.
FYI: once you get up to wave 10 and above it becomes extremely hard as you’ll have cheerleaders and hockey players and even chefs trying to attack you… and with the quickness I might add.
Don’t expect too much out of this title. It is what it is. It’s not very complex at all. It’s a fun little game for your iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad that you can purchase from the App Store for $0.99 that let’s you throw eggs at the undead. Headshots are worth more points and if you get three of them in a row you’ll be able to use your special ability of throwing multiple eggs at once.
All in all, there are so many eggs that you can throw at the walking dead before you find yourself a little bored of throwing eggs. I really wish that special ability upgrades and weapons were an option because really…? Eggs? Just eggs? That’s all you got?
Bunny the Zombie Slayer isn’t bloody at all from what I could tell. Yes, there are moments of decapitation and dismemberment but from what it looked like the blood was replaced with little pink hearts. Ahhh, cute. Seriously? It is slightly funny thought when you think about it. It doesn’t get any cooler than that. It really just stops there.
If you like repetition, then by all means… hip hop hoppity hop your way over to the App Store and purchase Bunny the Zombie Slayer, otherwise I’d suggest crawling inside your little hobbit hole for a while.
