8695641625_8e640fc719 House of the Dead: Overkill – The Lost Reels is a smartphone port of the grindhouse style Wii light gun game from Headstrong Games. It’s a f-ing awesome parody of zombie mutant shooters as Isaac Washington would say.


Sega changed the controls so you can use a virtual pad, accelerometer or "frenzy tap" to blast swarms of mutants. Brand new for The Lost Reels is a Shinobi crossover. You can play as Sega’s 16-bit ninja and throw shuriken at mutants. Neat! Now, where’s Alex Kidd?

    XD Hahaha. Tried this one recently. It’s a very weird crossover XD But playing as Shinobi doing headshots on mutants? XD Awesome!

    You know what? I wasn’t initially interested in this, but I don’t think I can resist it now because of the shinobi minigame

    ugh, why can’t they also just make this DLC for the PS3 version? -_-

    also, I’m suddenly reminded of a SNES game called Shien’s Revenge

    Alex Kidd punchign zombies and Joe Musashi throwing shuriken at them. That may just be THE greatest concept for a House of the Dead game I’ve heard thus far.
