Games::Zumbis - How long can you survive in a zombies attack
# install the game and its prereqs cpan Games::Zumbis # run the game zumbis # get addicted
This game started as a self-imposed challenge by the authors to get a game written from scratch during the 11th International Free Software Forum - Forum Internacional de Software Livre FISL - from 21 to 24 july of 2010 in Porto Alegre, Brasil.
The game was playable and subject to a small gaming competition that took place 24 of july 15h being projected in a big screen near the "user groups" area.
The initial game art was taken from the free tile sets from http://silveiraneto.net and heavily modified (specially the zombie char) by Gustavo Barbosa during the event.
The gameplay is fast, simple and addictive: You have to shot the zombies before they touch you moving only in four directions and with only 4 bullets in the screen. You will, inexorably, die. The question is: How much time you survive, and how many zombies can you kill.
You move the character with the 4 arrow keys and fire with the space key. You might also choose between the male and female character before re-starting the game by using the keys 1 and 2.
