Game Review: Zombie High Volume 3

ZHV3

 

Halloween may have come and gone people, but the Zombies stay all year around in the world of Zombie High and guess what? Volume 3 is ready for your reading pleasure.

 

 

*Spoilers*

When we last left our crew they just survived the best & worst day of their lives: living the dream of being rock stars and enjoying the good life in Alpha Sector. However it doesn’t last as they come to find out that there is a new breed of Zombie out there; Smart, strong, knows how to talk and of course completely evil. What’s more, they want to turn what’s left of the human race into their own personal all you can eat salad bar and have an unknown plot to do it. Their numbers are hidden among normal humans and even the main character’s parents are suspect, can Jane Valentine uncover the HFVM plans and busts some un Ds heads? Only your skill will decided that.

 

*End Spoilers*

Zombie High Volume 3 is another well done ‘choose your own adventure’ book (CYOA) for the smart phones that been showing up lately, which I couldn’t be more pleased. The series has same excellent writing and storytelling that I expect from the people that made Wizard’s Choice. Volume 3 changes the formula bit however by removing the ‘bullet’ counter from gameplay, and focused on more the narrative. So in combat you don’t have any special weapons to use, instead players must select the best choice that is the most effective without causing any backlash – if possible. It’s tempting to use opal all the time in combat, but doing so in the wrong situation, might make things worse. While I do miss putting all my bullets I’ve saved into a sweet killing machine that is the bane of all Zombies everywhere, the change is not really bad. If you watch what’s said prior to the choices and reason the situations you’re in you can often find a solution that won’t have your face eaten. Of course social life in high school is just as dangerous as any zombie threat, and you must balance your status as ‘A Kid’ with your mission to stop the HFVM – I’ll be surprised how both will be hand in hand in Vol. 3. What else can I say but I’ve enjoyed another read here; the removal of special weapons and attacks via the bullet system is missed, but the story or is the challenge hurt by this decision.  After finishing this one, I can’t wait to see what happens next – the mark of good fiction.

  1. waiting for volume 4, and also your walkthrough too 🙂

  2. Thanks for the walkthrough! However I followed it to the letter and only got the second best score. Maybe you could revisit it?

    • I could, but I do the walkthrough more to guide players to the end rather than to get perfect scores (most of the time anyway). Not to say getting the highest rating possible isn’t an awesome goal, but it is something players should earn on their own. But hey, if my walkthroughs help players get the ‘Feared by evil, loved by good!’ title in these games then I know I’ve done my job.

      • Does your version have achievements? If so how do I get the strange choice. I have looked for the list of achievements and couldn’t find them, so I decided to ask you. (The reason for needing that achievement is because I’m 2 coins off form the 4th episode).

      • Sorry but the version of the game I have doesn’t have any achievements, I cannot advice on how to get strange choice. Again sorry.

  3. For anyone who is interested in getting that top score.
