Game Review: Toxic Sonic Zombie Massacre

News to me and to probably most of you, Toxic Sonic is punk rock band from France.  And guess what: the trio now star in their very own zombie game! Exciting, right?!?! killed me a little inside to appear that excited over this. Alright, let's get this party started.

Toxic Sonic Zombie Massacre is a short, 2D, browser-based, action platformer by internet jack of all trades, Manning Leonard Krull. In it, you take control of the self-proclaimed badass trio, Incinerator, Putrida & Necros, as they travel across an 8-bit, post-apocalyptic Paris which is stylishly rendered tri-chromatically in black, white, and of course, red. Using their guitar, drumsticks, and what appears to be perfume, you'll smash, bludgeon and...spray any and every zombie that stands between them and the right side of the screen. The nominal "depth" comes into play when you realize that each chracter has a special ability and that only one of them can be actively controlled at a time. I won't get into the details of said abilities because a chunk of the fun comes from figuring out which character to use and when. The game is score-based and high-scorers get a free mp3 download of one of the band's tracks. SCORE! not

I have only one complaint about the entire experience: The absolutely abysmal background noise that some people call "music." The game only consists of one level and through out this entire level is the same, repetitive, obnoxious, palm-muted-power-chord-ridden punk rock track. I'd honestly rather scrape my teeth across a chalkboard before hearing that song again. 

I would say that, overall, this game provides an enojoyable, albeit short-lived experience that'll keep you distracted for a good 10-15 minutes. Check it out here and feel free to let us know what you think of it in our comments. We would love to hear your opinion!
