Zombie games: Are you, like billions of other people around the world, fond of horror movies and games? Do you have a particular fondness for the stories featuring zombies? Well, I have some advice on how you could enjoy yourself over the next few days.

Below, in fact, you will find a series of zombie games that you can download on your PC, on your smartphone or play directly online at no cost. There are many shooters and FPS but also strategic games and other very original titles that I highly recommend you try. So what are you waiting for?

If you are looking for zombie games online that you can play directly from your browser, I recommend you take a look at Kongregate . If you follow me assiduously, you already know that it is one of the best Flash game sites within which you can find a wide range of free titles of all kinds, including those with a zombie theme. I’m not just talking about fast-paced shooters, but also about strategic games, RPGs and even some automotive titles.

To play, all you have to do is click on the preview image of the video game to be launched and wait a few seconds for it to load.

There are also other free browser-based zombie games to keep in mind. One of them is Shambles , which was developed in just 7 days by Markus “Notch” Persson, one of the creators of Minecraft. It is a first person shooter with retro-style graphics where the main purpose is to collect the most yellow spheres released by the eliminated zombies. To underline the fact that to obtain weapons and ammunition you have to annihilate the zombie policemen, while to increase your health you need to collect the first aid kits left by civilians. To play, the free Unity Web Player plugin must be installed on the PC: just download it to your computer (Windows or Mac), launch the installation package and click first on I agree and then on Finish .

Zombie Warz is also worth a look , a 3D shooter with first-person view where you have to get rid of all the “living dead” encountered along your way. The game has a fairly accurate graphics and a fairly high level of difficulty that can satisfy even the most demanding gamers. It works on all major web browsers and also requires the presence of Unity Web Player on the computer.

Leaving the context of browser games, I can recommend some more complex zombie-themed titles that can be downloaded / purchased from Steam . The first that comes to mind is No More Room in Hell , a free-to-play online multiplayer FPS (therefore free to download and play) based on Valve’s Source Engine graphics engine. It takes inspiration from the works of George Romero and is set in a world on the verge of chaos due to an illness that transforms its victims into zombies. The graphics are excellent and there is really no reason not to try it. It is compatible with Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.
