Of course you can't expect anything clever like a brilliant story line or amazing graphics but that isn't what the game intended to be. It's a basic shoot-up arcade-style game and that's what I love it for.

Basically you are a secret agent and you have been sent out to deal with a problem at a house that's festering with zombies. It's been a time since I played it but I remember it having to do with a mad scientist and his experiments. Now you have to help other scientists who are being attacked by zombies, weird frogs, mean giant maggots etc. You also have the bosses, before you fight them you are told the weak spots you have to aim for except for the last boss, you'll have to guess all on your own. There's a boss who I particularly love who looks like a flying grey demon that sends his bat friends after you. His voice is high-pitched and sorta squeaky so even when he's threatening you it just sounds so damn cute.

Although when you've completed this game you'll find you can just play straight through it in a very short time which I think is good because it means there's enough time to have plays of it before you start doing the work you're supposed to be doing. Fans of shoot em ups and old arcade-style games should love this but I'd recommend it to any video game fans just to give it a try. It's really fun.
