Zombie Hooker Nightmare

Yet another Adult Swim game, Zombie Hooker Nightmare is from This Is Pop, and is a multi-directional scroller. You play Lola, the last hooker left alive. You mission is to collect the required number of johns and return them to your trailer. [link]


While on your quest you will find various weapons. Some melee, some thrown, and several firearms. There are also sacks of money, because you know, hookers love money, right? Weapons are only good for a limited number of uses. If you don't have a weapon you can punch. All attacks are with the space bar.


When you find a john, you have to lure him by hitting the "X" key. If he has not been lured to you he can be killed by zombies. Once you have him, however, he is yours. Return to the trailer and he will go in. You stay outside until you have lured enough of them. If a john is killed, he will respawn. Also note, you can kill johns before they are lured if you are not careful.

There are numerous zombie types. Initially there are green and yellow zombies. Green zombies are simple one-hitters, but can be trouble in groups. Yellow zombies have reach and typically take three hits. Red zombies will show up in early stages if you take too long. They take multiple hits, and have a projectile attack.

You can choose to start at "Episode 2" which is much harder, but has a variety of other weapons and some difficult monsters in addition to the zombies.


Now, if you like your zombies more festive, there is always the XXX-Mas Edition. [link]


This one seems more difficult still, as there are a host of baddies out to get you right away. There is the North Wind, which will impede your progress, and an ice queen who will freeze you. Your johns are elves this time, and there are, I believe, zombie Santas.

I am lousy at games of this type, but this one is fun despite my skill. It is so quirky and weird, with just enough perversity to make me happy. Well worth trying out.
