Yup, picked it up a few hours ago. I'm not even a fan of zombies (my god, will they ever end? And what is next? Hopefully a worldwide Cthulu obsession). But this looks just cheeky enough for my tastes.

read some reviews and actually bought this one. someone said its simple once you play it many hours/die alot on hardest level. but seems like a cool concept, and shows that unique gameplay always wins over mind-blowing graphics.

now i wish someone would make port over c=64 "M.u.L.e." on iphone/ipad

Wow, so much talk about a game that looks like an Atari 2600 game? Wow!

2600 could not have done this game, actually. It's based off the classic Oregon Trail on the Apple II+ computers.

And the game play is brilliant. The graphics are intentional -- meant to resemble Oregon Trail.

It's happening (M.U.L.E.). Like you I fondly remember the C=64 version, and hope the finished game resembles that more than the Nintendo version.

Mostly the game reminded me how much I hate Oregon Trail. Like a side scrolling boardgame, where everything is random and success or failure are pure chance.

But it was enjoyable for the novelty, so I can't regret buying it especially on sale.
