Zombie Night Terror
Top Critic Average
The best Lemmings game since the Amiga days, except with flesh-eating zombies instead of mindless mammals.
Plotting the downfall of the human race is a rare treat in videogames, and there’s a lot of fun to be had in bringing this to pass in Zombie Night Terror. The zombie apocalypse by way of Lemmings, NoClip have done a great job of mixing their inspirations into something new and imaginative.
A wonderfully designed zombie romp, providing a tough challenge with some fantastic humour and music along the way.
Zombie Night Terror mixes the tired undead genre with the puzzle gameplay of the Lemming series, oddly enough. It works for the most part but the game is too difficult and obtuse for its own good. There is an enjoyable puzzler here, just expect to deal with some trial and error frustration along the way.
Zombie Night Terror is a great little tactical game, with a distinct art style and direction that makes zombies interesting again. At a low price, offering a good length that offers replay value in side objectives, there's no doubt that this is a game that should be looked at and is worth your time.
The cute pixel graphics make the game ten times more haunting when a jolly pixel man with an afro is torn to shreds by a pack of zombies.
The art direction astutely compliments the gameplay and the self-referential, retro-infused style of Zombie Night Terror. It is a title that feels a lot like a postmodern love letter to games of a bygone era.
All in all, Zombie Night Terror doesn’t bring a whole lot of full-scale innovation to the table, but it’s an interesting and fun spin on a classic. The changes made to bring the theme to life all fit very well with the overall idea, and those who didn’t grow up with Lemmings as a ubiquitous presence are sure to find some new curiosities here.
Zombie Night Terror is a brilliant puzzle game, packed with care and attention to details.

Take one part Lemmings, combine with liberal but equal amounts of undead flesh and 8-bit pixel art. Heat vigorously. The resulting decoction is something more potent than its constituent parts that delivers a wholly unique and heady rush. This action puzzler will have you quickly hooked. Side effects may include compulsive level replaying, RSI of your click finger, and loss of sleep.
