Have you been searching for a spooky game to play this All Hallow's Eve? Well, you can stop--the cult classic LucasArts title, Zombies Ate My Neighbors, has (finally) hit the Wii Virtual Console service for the oh-so-accessible price of 800 Wii Points.
What? You've never played the game? After slapping yourself until it hurts, read the following description (courtesy of Nintendo of America's PR folks):
You will play the game as one of two brave kids: Zeke or Julie. Both kids use the same control scheme and have the same characteristics. If you're playing in two-player mode, each player must pick a kid. You can't have two Zekes or two Julies. Each player starts with three lives. When your life bar runs out, you lose a life. There are hidden 1-Up bonuses in the game. You may also earn bonus lives if you have 10 victims left when you finish a level. Get ready to conquer 48 levels of giant ants, mad scientists and big babies. Find seven bonus levels (look for the question marks), earn points and stockpile your water pistols and other weapons.
Actually, forget that description. It sucks. Instead, check out the game's Wikipedia page or, better yet, check out a few YouTube videos of the game in action--like this one, or this one.
