Dead Block – Now Available On PSN
Digital Reality and developer Candygun Games today announced the release of their zombie defense video game Dead Block on PlayStation Network. Dead Block drops players into the 1950’s when the rock ‘n roll craze was first sweeping the nation – and creating an undead apocalypse as the deceased begin to rise and crave human flesh!
Dead Block features three survivors of the zombie day-of-reckoning – Boy Scout Mike Bacon, construction worker Jack Foster, and no-nonsense meter maid Foxy Jones- who have formed an unlikely alliance to defend themselves against the invading zombie horde!
“Dead Block is not your typical zombie killing game,” said Balazs Horvath, Director of Publishing for Digital Reality. “Rather than just killing zombies, players get to strategically create traps and use a wide variety of attack methods. This fresh twist on a much loved past time – killing the undead – forces players to use their brain while trying to save it from being devoured by undead ghouls.”
The three survivors of the shuffling zombie onslaught– Mike, Jack and Foxy– hide in shelters around town and fortify their area by boarding up windows and setting a variety of unique, entertaining booby traps like the Cardboard Trap that makes zombies attack each other or the Freeze Trap that causes them to break into pieces. Players collect items and power-ups while taking on zombies one-on-many with a variety of upgradeable weapons like Nail Guns and Hamburger smart bombs, and even rock the undead to shreds with awesome guitar power! The game offers 10 single-player levels as well as a 4-Player, split-screen multiplayer with an additional eight co-op levels where players can fight side by side with their friends.
Dead Block is now available on Playstation Network for £7.99/$9.99 and is already ready for download on Xbox LIVE Arcade for 800 Microsoft Points.
