Digital Chocolate公司最近似乎也被卷入Facebook僵尸主题游戏的热潮中，他们刚刚发布了名为《Zombie Lane》的游戏。《Zombie Lane》将让玩家建立自己的角色在游戏中对抗僵尸大军，并在自己的后院建立一个安全区。
不过，在玩家在努力完成那些建筑任务的同时，僵尸们也会一直尝试把你变成他们的午餐，所以玩家需要用得到的金币给猎枪购买子弹，或者使用物品栏中的“充能”物品（这些物品都可以用食物点数来购买——没错，就算僵尸大军压境，你还是可以有时间来操作农场）。这款游戏将直接使用Facebook Credits货币，玩家可以用这些货币购买永久增加总能量上限的充能道具，或者装饰品和其他游戏物品。游戏邦了解到，在《Zombie Lane》中可以购买的道具很多，这些道具能够让玩家获得许多金币和经验值，另外，游戏还包含成就系统，不过使用这个成就系统有一定的等级限制。
Digital Chocolate officially launches Zombie Lane on Facebook
Digital Chocolate has broken into the world of Zombie-themed games on Facebook with the release of Zombie Lane. We brought you a preview of Zombie Lane earlier this month, but the game is now officially available to play on the platform. The game will have you creating your own avatar that you will represent you as you fight the undead scourge, and help create a safe zone in your own backyard.
Zombie Lane is called a “survival” game in that you must do everything in your power to survive. You’ll find new weapons (or will be given them) at various intervals (you start with a shovel, but are quickly upgraded to a shotgun, for instance), and you’ll then use these weapons to attack the zombies that are forever rising from the ground around your yard. Your yard is fenced in, but zombies will try to break the fencing and come after your brains, as zombies most often do.
While the game may be fairly original in its design, Zombie Lane does take a few gameplay elements from other established Facebook games (like FrontierVille). You’ll have an energy system that will only allow you to kill so many zombies at once, and you’ll receive bonus coins, experience points, and energy as drops from completed tasks. Picking up these bonus items in rapid succession goes to build a combo meter (think bonus bar), which, when filled, rewards you with even more coins.
As your starting yard looks as though it has been hit by a tornado, you’ll receive a series of missions that take you through a fairly basic story in the game, introducing you to other characters, and seeing you repair your home and fence to actually withstand stronger attacks from the undead. You’ll need to clear piles of rubble to gather bricks to rebuild the house, for instance. As you complete tasks, you’ll become closer and closer to the state when you can bring your spouse into the game with you, which is as much of a nod to FrontierVille as I’ve ever seen in a game.
While you’re trying to accomplish these construction tasks, it’s likely that zombies will be trying to make you their lunch, so you can use your coins to purchase ammo refills for your shotgun, or use items like energy boosts from your inventory (they can also be purchased with Food – yes, there is time to farm while the zombie apocalypse is nigh). The game’s premium currency is straight Facebook Credits, and these can be used to purchase permanent boosts to your total energy, decorations (as what’s a restored neighborhood without bushes and Adirondack chairs on the porch?) and other items.
There are collection items to earn here (which also drop from defeated enemies), which earn you various amounts of coins and XP, and the game also comes with an achievement set, but you must level up to receive it.
All told, this isn’t the first zombie themed Facebook game we’ve seen released, and we doubt it will be the last, but Digital Chocolate does seem to offer a sense of polish with this game as they do on all of their others. I’ll likely be sticking with this one for a while, and you’re more than welcome to join me. （Source: Games.com）
