A platformer that has you morphing between three different characters with different attributes, “Three Dead Zed” easily earns its (admittedly hefty by XBLIG standards) 400 Microsoft Points. The production values are strong, and it deserves a larger review than this. As a consequence, I’ve added it to my list of games to re-review in the future. But in the meanwhile, with a long day at work (we’re renovating the sales floor) as well as a meeting afterward, this was the best I could do today. But seriously, at least download the trial, this is good stuff. And it gets bonus points for having the “Zed” in the title.
Here’s what the developer (Gentleman Squid Studio) has to say about the game:
“Breaking out of a testing facility, Three Dead Zed (3DZ) lets you take control of an experimental zombie that can transform into three unique and distinct forms. Quick reflexes, a little problem solving, and some rescued kittens, players make a violent exit that won’t be forgotten by their captors. 3DZ is an action/puzzle platformer that features beautifully hand drawn characters and environments.”
