Time travel has been a popular aspect of numerous game franchises. From Time Crisis and Timesplitters to Chrono Trigger and BioShock Infinite, the ability to surf through time is not uncommon to the seasoned gamer. But how many games simultaneously offer a time traveling multi-dimensional adventure and rainbow laser guns? Zombie Party is an action RPG shoot ’em up developed by Peach Pie Productions that does just that.

Though it does include solo play, Zombie Party‘s title suggests it favors multiplayer over all else. Supporting up to four players simultaneously via local co-op, players face off against hordes of enemies and boss encounters via procedurally generated levels that include destructible environments. To help combat the variety of undead threats, Zombie Party features customizable modular guns which players can build to suit their style. Additional weapons and mods can be purchased via gold drops, and characters level up during play, earning skill points to increase basic attributes.
