[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

Last year PomPom made Alien Zombie Death on PSP minis. Heralded as “pacy, mean-spirited, and delightful.” By EDGE magazine. It was a simple, extremely focused platform shooter. We loved making it. Anybody with the required skill set loved playing it. Those who didn’t clearly play too much backgammon.

Alien Zombie Megadeath takes up the slimy baton, bringing the game to the PS3 in glorious HD, with a fabulous list of new features. At it's heart, a platform shoot-em-up. You are a lone spaceman, out in space, doing spaceman stuff. You have a gun. It shoots laser beams... Out there are the Alien Zombies. They don't like you. They smell.  Add all this together and the result is carnage... or death, if you are not very good.

The lovely feature list:

  • Intense retro shoot em up gameplay.
  • 70 levels
  • Both one-shot and survival level types.
  • Multiplayer Co-Op
  • Various game modes: Bomb Disposal, Space Baby Rescue, JetPack & Decoy Pods.
  • Medal system, with over 280 unique medals to unlock
  • A range of space suits available. Plus a few to unlock!
  • Independent leaderboards for all levels
  • Weapon power-ups for those sticky moments
