Zombie Panic in Wonderland DX is a fun action game in which players deal with the extermination of zombie legions. Production allows you to control several different characters (alone or in cooperation with friends) and has a characteristic, manga graphic style. The title is a conversion of a game released in 2010 on Nintendo Wii (in later years it also found its way to iOS devices and a portable Nintendo 3DS console). The Japanese company Akaoni Studio is responsible for its development, and Nintendo took the role of the publisher.
The action Zombie Panic in Wonderland DX takes place in the title world of Wonderland, which has been captured by bizarre, bloodthirsty zombies. The main character is Momotaro - a young man (known from the Japanese fairy tale titled The Peach Boy), who returns to his village years later. His friends from other stories of this type - Dorothy (The Wonderful Wizard of Oz), Alice (Alice in Wonderland) and Snow White - help him in the fight.
Zombie Panic in Wonderland DX belongs to the so-called rail-shooter genre. The action is observed from behind the back of the character (TPP perspective). The game takes place on static boards and focuses on exterminating further bloodthirsty undead waves - we do not walk on locations, but we can move sideways during combat to avoid objects thrown by enemies. After finishing the sequence we are moved to the next place and the fight starts from scratch.
The production offers several different characters, as well as a wide range of weapons to choose from, including machine guns, sword and mini-guns. For killing enemies and spectacular destruction of the environment we receive points - the results achieved by us are recorded on a special board.
Importantly, the game does not offer the ability to save the status of the game during the mission - every time we die, we are forced to start the level from the beginning.
In Zombie Panic in Wonderland DX we can play alone or with others. In single player mode, the game offers a fictional campaign, in which we get to the locations known from many popular fairy tales. The cooperation module allows up to two players to play together (in Arcade mode) - each of them chooses one of the available characters.
Zombie Panic in Wonderland DX has a fairly simple three-dimensional graphic design, enriched with two-dimensional, hand drawn and animated images of the characters and graphics through which the plot is presented. Although the projects of levels and light effects accompanying the attacks are unlikely to delight anyone, the manga style of art can be liked. A positive impression is also made by the physics system - we have here a partial destruction of both the environment and enemies (e.g. shooting off the limbs). The opponents themselves also look interesting - they are funny and grotesque at the same time.
