Zombies Ate My Neighbors is a run and gun video game developed by LucasArts and originally published by Konami for the Super NES and Sega Genesis consoles in 1993.
One or two players take control of protagonists Zeke and Julie in order to rescue the titular neighbors from monsters often seen in horror movies. Aiding them in this task are a variety of weapons and power-ups that can be used to battle the numerous enemies in each level. Various elements and aspects of horror movies are referenced in the game with some of its more violent content being censored in various territories such as Europe and Australia, where it is known only as Zombies.
A nice and simple yet fun zombie-themed game from back when zombies weren’t over-saturated in entertainment media. A game I really didn’t pay much attention to back around its release, I’ve really come to enjoy its simple run-and-gun mechanics and crazy enemies since then.
