Free Bytes: Big Pixel Zombies

“It may come as a surprise that sometimes unholy flesh eating denizens of hell can be so damn cute and disarming. While the concept of blowing the crap out of swarms of hungry zombies in a fight to stay alive amidst a world-ending undead apocalypse has been worn out heavily in the past few years, Big Pixel Zombies makes the same old formula irresistibly charming and fun again. It’s tough not to laugh at the grisly zombie faces painted on the large moving blocks that lumber towards your, presumably in an effort to eat your pixilated brains.”

Feel like stepping up to the plate for a shot at being named bird parent of the year? Be our guest.”
