What’s this? Another ragdoll game? Another zombie game? Well yes…and no. More accurately, this game has zombie ragdolls. The object is launch them in the air onto lethal hooks, saws, spikes, and exploding devices. So this is really a physics puzzle game that is using zombie ragdolls, spooky backgrounds, and a little bit of gore.
Okay so I mentioned launching zombie ragdolls. You launch them off of a spinning wheel, and have to make them land in just the right spots. You can’t advance to the next level until you have hit all of your spots.
The really cool thing about the game is it’s length. There are 50 levels, plus another 20 bonus levels! mibix also included 12 different achievements, including one that is earned simply by visiting the sponsor’s site (pretty inventive, seems like a good idea for both the developer and sponsor).
Impale is this week’s Flash Game Friday winner not only because it has zombies that you can slice and dice, but also because it has good game mechanics, nice polish, and the physics are well done. Congratulations mibix!
