Aim for the Head
Defeat swarms of the undead in Dead Fire: Zombie Shooting. With a variety of guns and gear, players must clear stages full of zombies with special traits. Each zombie offers its own unique challenges that make each stage a fresh experience. Dygames.Inc manages to create a zombie shooting game that stays exciting as you progress.
This title separates each zombie shooting level into stages. Each level has twenty stages and ends with a boss fight. The first boss battle really changes the game. Normal zombies make your heart race, but the boss blows them all away with its immense size and grotesque appearance. Other zombies have unique traits. One zombie moves faster than the others, forcing you to focus on her. Another is explosive so you must kill it before it reaches you to avoid damage. These traits make the stages both more exciting and challenging.
Dead Fire also offers a wide variety of weapons for players to unlock as you. Once unlocked, they can be purchased. The biggest downside to this part of the game is that buying weapons and gear is very expensive. Even a simple hat can cost 32,000 coins to buy. You must play multiple stages to even get close to having enough money to buy anything new. Gear takes a long time to unlock and purchase with its high price tags. If you enter a stage that says to use a sniper rifle, you should already have one. High prices make this almost impossible so you can get stuck using the wrong weapon at first.
Every stage of this game has missions you need to complete to get rewards. They range from ending the stage without loosing health to killing two zombies with headshots. Stages can get replayed so you can try again if you don’t manage to get all three missions the first time. This adds more challenge to the stages and keep the game exciting.
Dead Fire’s controls are easy to use. Your character doesn’t move, the zombies come to you. Moving your finger around the left side of the screen moves the camera. Tapping or holding the right will fire your weapon. The left side has your scope that’s needed when you use your sniper rifle while the right has special items. In the main menu, you can buy grenades, health kits, and an item called “slow” to make the zombies move slower for a certain amount of time.
For a mobile zombie game, the graphics are alright. Your weapon and the zombies have a good amount of detail. Levels themselves are lacking in detail. Some areas have blurring or look flat, but this probably keeps the game running smoothly. With all the action that goes on during a stage, having heavy detail could potentially cause lag.
Some stages in Dead Fire have NPCs that you have to worry about. Zombies will instantly go toward them instead of going towards you. NPCs can be unarmed or have an axe that they use to attack the zombies. The stage will end if they die so make sure to clear the zombies around them.
Overall, Dead Fire manages to create a unique zombie shooting game that has plenty to keep each stage feeling new. Zombie games get repetitive after a while, but the different type of zombies, weapons, and missions keep each stage feeling fresh. The only real downside is the expensive shop. Fans of zombie games will enjoy this intense shooter. Dead Fire: Zombie Shooting’s special zombies will keep you on your toes until the very end.
Dead Fire keeps every stage exciting with unique challenges, zombies, and missions. Expensive prices on gear don’t bring this title down as you fight your way through action-packed levels.
