Run-and-gun shooter Zombotron is releasing next week, and there’s a new trailer to celebrate the game’s upcoming release. Here’s when the game is out.
Zombotron has a plot that seems to hearken back to classic shooters of yore. You play as a tough-as-nails mercenary dude who finds himself stranded on a planet after his ship is stolen. Unfortunately for Blaze Rush (that’s his name), the planet he’s stranded on is quite alien and double-quite hostile. After that, you shoot things and try to make it out alive, while also customising your armour to look stylish.
According to developer Anton Karlov (who goes by the moniker Ant.Karlov), Zombotron will release on 22nd April, which happens to be the coming Monday. The launch will be on PC and Mac, and you’ll find the game’s Steam page here. The game is also expected to be available on Humble Store and Kartridge. Pricing has been set for $14.99.

Apart from the usual shooty-shoot, there seems to be a lot of environmental interaction you can use to your combat advantage:
Zombotron features an arsenal of weapons and armor, enemies that hate each other as much as they hate you, and really nice explosions for an experience that’s out of this world. Why go for headshots when you can drop a zombie down an elevator shaft? Or crush them beneath a pile of rubble. Or set of an elaborate daisy-chain of dynamite around them. Or run them over in an ATV. Or… you get the idea.
Although this game is the first ‘premier’ game from Ant.Karlov, the developer is actually a veteran in the field, having worked for over a decade on various web games (including previous versions of Zombotron itself).
Zombotron is being published by Armor Games Studios, who we know for previously publishing Atmos Games’ puzzle platformer Pinstripe, which we reviewed in 2017.
