Boxhead Zombies – You’d have to be a boxhead not to play!

Boxhead Zombies is a zombie wave attack flash game developed by Crazy Monkey Games. You can play it on their website or download and play offline.

Boxhead

Overview :
The game starts you in the middle of an open field with only a pistol for defense. Your task is to survive waves of zombie attacks from a variety of different types of zombies by earning new weapons and putting up defenses.
The Boxhead Zombies world is limited to 6 maps set outdoors.
There is a multiplier counter at the top of the screen, and the more successful shots you make, the higher it goes. This is important because higher counter scores will give you new offensive and defensive weapons.

Controls :
You need only your arrow keys to make your character navigate the 2-D map. The Space key fires your weapons. ‘Z’ and ‘X’ are used to scroll up and down your weapon list. To choose a specific weapon, use the number keys 0 to 9.
Controls can be set how you like by clicking on the ‘Controls’ header.

The Enemy :
There are five different ‘species’ of enemy – zombies, runners, mummies, vampires and devils in that order of both danger and difficulty to kill. Each has its own characteristics and weaknesses.
Just a tip: The Devil is very appropriately named and your defenses and automatic turrets won’t stay up very long after he turns up.

Defense :
You can set up defensive structures like barricades and crates in the breather period between consecutive waves. It’s worthy to remember that none of these are invincible and larger waves will break through.

Offense :
Starting from a pistol, you work your way up to earn shotguns, mortars, automatic-fire turrets and more. The most fantastic feature, though, has to be the air-strike. Try it – you won’t be disappointed.

Conclusion :
While the action is fast-paced right from the get-go, it tends to get a bit monotonous once you have seen all the 5 different types of enemy and earned and used all the weapons. Still, until that point, an exciting distraction.
