Braindead *ALPHA*

Your rating: None Average: 1.7 (6 votes)

This is a game similar to RISK in the effect that each player is in a struggle to control sections of the level. The game takes place in a brain where a zombie infestation has taken place. You play as either the Brain Cells defending against the onslaught, or the Zombie Cells infecting the cells and zombifiying them.

Installation Notes: 

Please be sure that you have Microsoft XNA Framework 3.0 installed in order to play. Run the executable "pbats.exe" to begin the game. Remember that this is still in ALPHA stage.

Brief Play Description: 

The ALPHA build of this game is built for 2 players. Each player has 10 seconds to complete his/her turn. First is the brain cell player, then the zombie cell player. Hit 'Advance' to start your turn and again to end it, unless the timer runs out. Each of the - and + boxes correspond to a section of the brain. Each section has a number of points attributed to it. Section one has 5, two has 4, three has 3, four has 3, and five has 2. Each time either player wins a battle they get a point for that section. Once either one reaches the number of points for any given section they win. For example, if the brain cell player gets to five points on section one than he has taken over that section.

The only working visual feedback at this point is the scoreboard. Please be advised that this is only in ALPHA stage, and further improvements will be made in order to completely finish the game.
