Zombieville USA Question

Is zombieville more like top score kind-of game (i.e. minigore, doodle jump, pac-man) or story/stage completion kind-of game (i.e. sway, Bust-a-Move, Labyrinth 2)?

Thanks!

High score, but you do stop to buy stuff in-between levels.

The devs refer to Zombieville USA as a "survival" game: how long can you stay alive against the undead horde, how many of them can you kill, etc. There are games stages, and you are given an opportunity to spend money to buy weapons and health at the end of each stage... plus, in the new update there are checkpoints every 5 levels so you can easily return to a level close to where the game ended as the zombies snack on your tasty brains.

Also, it features an awesome soundtrack.

So it does have highscores (with leaderboards) where I could compete for higher positions on the leaderboard? Also, you mentioned saving every 5 levels, how does this work highscores (do you start at #0 kills, is there a maximum stage)?

Thanks again!!! I played the demo. I loved the gameplay, but was confused on how it played.

I think they're just personal high scores, no online or anything. To be honest I really don't see the attraction of online high scores, I play fun games, I don't just play games to get on top of the leaderboard, mostly because I don't have the skill or time, but that's just me. Bottom line, Zombieville is a very enjoyable game that I always find myself coming back to especially since the most recent update.

yeah, it's a great game, i think the gameplay is the most important thing you should consider first。。。on line leaderboard is only an ornament。。。
