In the year 201X the United States is in fatal trouble … Zombies Everywhere.
In TEMPURA of the DEAD you play as President Thompson, an obvious caricature of President Barack Obama and a Samurai by the name of Sugimoto. The player can switch between characters in-game. The object of TEMPURA of the DEAD is to kill zombies and clear each stage of the germs. One of the main game play mechanics is juggling zombie heads, if done correctly you get rewarded with points that you can use to purchase upgrades.
I highly recommend this game, it is challenging and has great re-playability.
Game Play: 4.5
There isn’t much about the game play I don’t like, one complaint I have is that of the collision detection when juggling zombie heads, it seems like some misses should be hits to me.
Visually it is spectacular, the design is that of mid 80′s which I personally very much enjoy. Onscreen control indicators are very helpful, and not at all detrimental to the look and feel of the game.
Options in the world map to quickly adjust sound volume is great. Music and sound effects do get a little repetitive after a while.
