Meet Edward "Stubbs" Stubblefield. During the Great
Depression, he was a down-on-his-luck travelling salesman.
Now it's 1959 and he's a zombie with an insatiable hunger
for human brains. How could this happen? The answer lies buried
somewhere in Punchbowl, Pennsylvania, a high-tech City of
the Future built by the world's richest man. Punchbowl is
a paradise of hovercars and helper-robots, where crime and
pollution simply don't exist. It's the perfect city: safe,
clean and convenient. Stubbs can't wait to movie in...
the Zombie in Rebel Without a Cause is
guaranteed to turn heads. This third-person action game is
a stirring tale of one man's hunger for love, justice... and
play Stubbs, a wisecracking Zombie who takes on an ultramodern
city of the future using nothing but his own carcass and the
weapons of his possessed enemies. The game's tongue-in-cheek
humour, innovative combat and strong storyline ensure that
the gameplay is as bizarre and unpredictable as its namesake.
On his quest, Stubbs lurches his way through numerous large
indoor/outdoor environments in and around the city of Punchbowl
- a city built during the Eisenhower administration to show
off the ultra-futuristic technology of the 21st century.
brain-eating adventure brings him through bustling shopping
districts and verdant farmlands to battle mad scientists,
rural militiamen and the world's deadliest barbershop quartet.
His enemies have shotguns, tanks, and all manner of futuristic
weaponry. All Stubbs has is his own rotting corpse, a distinct
lack of pain or conscience, and the ability to turn foes into
zombie allies. What begins as one zombie's search for revenge
quickly escalates into an all-out war between the living and
the dead - but this time it's the zombie fighting for truth,
justice and the redemption of true love. Yes, it's a love
is one of those games that you are either going to fall in
love with, or not get at all.
have to smile at the developers not even remotely subtle sense
humour. The farm you are set loose on is called Knobb Cheese
Farm (although you only see this written backwards if you
happen to head back to the main gates and look up; Stubbs
uses a sheep as a mode of transport; and this has to be the
only game where you have to urinate in order to progress to
another level. Yes,
it's schoolboy humour all the way, but it will also have 30-somethings
(like me) rolling around on the floor chuckling like an idiot.
loved the games innovative weapons system. Here you use your
body parts to despatch the enemy. You can break wind (to leave
any humans in the vicinity gasping for air (This stops them
from putting up a fight while you suck out their brains);
throw your guts and then explode them at the touch of a button;
remove your arm and guide it around until you see a likely
subject and then take control of their body (this means that
you can use any weapons they carry - like guns); or you can
use your head like a bowling ball and knock your enemies flying.
Of course, once you use any of these ways to dispatch your
enemies, you'll need to suck some more brains in order to
power each body part up before you can use it again.
graphics and music are great, and the gameplay is insanely
addictive - there's something satisfying about sucking people's
the down side, it is a little repetitive, and most seasoned
gamers will be able to complete the game on the normal mode
over a lazy weekend. Having said that, this is just different
enough from other games on the market to make it worth a look.
