Free Game Time

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Sometimes I like to mix in a free game to break up the EQII mania. This one isn't really an MMORPG or a MUD, though it has aspects of both. I guess I would call it a web-based multiplayer game. Did I mention it's about zombies? Did I mention it's free?

The game I'm talking about is called
Urban Dead. There are other games in this style out there but I like this one for several reasons. The gameplay is creative, the registration is very painless (you don't even need to put an e-mail address in if you don't want to), and it's the perfect five minute work-break game.

The game has basically no graphics but it does have a nice interface. The setting is a city overrun by zombies. There are four classes: military, civilian, scientist and zombie, with some subclass choices. I'm currently playing as a fireman and chopping some zombies down with my trusty fire axe.

When you're starting off, make sure you are near an empty building. With your full action points, venture out and take a few swings or shots at a zombie. You are not going to hit it much at first, but keep trying. When you are low on AP, make sure you head back into the building and shut the doors so you will be safe when you log out. Your action points return over time. Eventually, you will gain xp, which you can trade in for skills. Then you can start to explore some of the more advanced aspects of the game.

If you do die, fear not. Just consider it a special invitation to join the growing zombie horde. You will be less powerful than if you started the game as a zombie, but you can get stronger. It is rumored there are even ways to restore yourself to human form eventually, if you know a good Necro-Tech scientist.

Whether you want to fight the zombie menace or devour your way through humanity, be sure to check out
the forums. There are some good roleplaying groups that do some pretty wild coordinated stuff.

Oh, and if you feel like having some more free fun, be sure to check out
Supernoob's roleplaying game that is starting up soon on our very own Aggro Forums.

Man! I wizzed through the AP's faster than a zombie through the Olson Twins.
