IMG Reviews Space Pirates And Zombies
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Inside Mac Games has posted a new review of MinMax Games' Space Pirates and Zombies. The action oriented top down space combat game challenges players to fight zombie infestations across the stars and features 33 ships, 70 unique components, and a physics based combat system.

Here's an excerpt:

The game looks absolutely great on even an older Mac. It plays pretty fast in fullscreen and windowed modes, has loads of quality background textures, particle effects, ship models, and zombie alternates to the main ship types. If you get in a huge ship loaded down with weapons, it's very satisfying to watch. There isn't much visual clutter, either, which is very helpful. You won't have a hard time picking your target out of the background or out of a large wad of weapon fire, which has been a problem in similar games of the past.

The soundtrack is also quite nice, despite the limited song choices. There are the usual tracks of action-packed, peaceful, and atmospheric music to keep you in the mood as you fly around, and the sounds are excellent. You won't find a jarring sound in the bunch, and they all serve their purpose quite well. You've got humming beams, pew pewing cannons, booming rockets, whining warps, and the usual set of interface sounds.
