All Zombies Must Die! is a top-down shooter video game for up to four players. The game was released as a downloadable title for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 video game consoles and personal computers running the Windows operating system. It is the spiritual successor to Burn Zombie Burn.

Gameplay[edit]

Players choose one of four characters; Jack, his ex-girlfriend Rachel, the Rastafarian alien Luxo or the scientist Bryan. Each of the characters has a different secondary attack in addition to their equipped weapon. The game is set in the fictional town of Deadhill, where a zombie apocalypse has occurred. Players must complete quests, gather items and fight the zombie horde with limited ammunition. Game locations include the suburbs, a shopping mall and the town centre.

The game uses a dual analogue stick control system, one stick is used to move the player's character, the other is used to aim the character's weapon. The game has light role-playing elements, such as quests and item creation. Players choose which quests they undertake, allowing non-linear progression and exploration within the game world.[1][2]

Players increase their character's level by defeating enemies and collecting items. Items are located in containers such as bins and cupboards. The chosen character can be levelled-up at bases, which also serve as hubs for weapon modifications, for instance allowing the player to create electrified melee weapons.[1]
