Imagine if one day you woke up and discovered that all your friends have been turned into hideous zombies. Imagine, how alone and scared you might be. Right, and now imagine that the only way you can truly defeat the zombie menace is to beat them at games of Roshambo (or Rock, Paper, Scissors as it’s sometimes called). What? How can you be having trouble with that bit? Zombie Roshambo makes a hell of a lot of sense. Hmmm, well not really but since when does that mean anything.
The chaps behind Zombie Roshambo have taken ‘Rock, Paper, Scissors’ squeezed in some horrifically decaying undead and then smeared it all over with the social part that allows you to play with your friends, or indeed people you’ve never met.
For those living under a paper covered rock for well, ever. The rules of are as follows, you choose a rock, paper or scissors and your opponent does the same. Rock blunts scissors, scissors cuts paper, and paper covers rock. Winning or losing Zombie Roshambo can see you becoming yet another victim of the shuffling undead zombie hordes or even becoming human if you’ve already succumbed.
You can even see just how the war is doing globally. The zombies have yet to reach England, but I and another pirate are still able to attack overseas. Hoorah!
I’m amazed that zombies have the dexterity to create three completely different hand gestures and withhold from their ravenous flesh-eating long enough to play. Maybe we have them all wrong, and everything we know about them is just some form of anti-zombie propaganda.
