Snake and Pac-Man are two of the most popular and classic games to ever be created. What if someone combined them into one game and slapped a zombie skin over the top? That is exactly what you get with Zombillie. You play as Zombillie, a caterpillar in a post-apocalyptic world. But now, instead of eating leaves, he has a taste for meat.

Each level of Zombillie looks a lot like a level of Pac-Man. It’s a maze filled with orbs (a.k.a. “meat) that need to be collected to win the level. The Snake aspect comes in when you start eating the meat. The more you eat the more you grow, which makes moving around a lot more difficult. Collect all of the yellow orbs to open the sewer and complete the level.

Along the way there are items that can help. Meat cleavers will trim a few pounds of your tail end, lights can open up gates, and hammers can break through weak walls. If you do run into your tail or get trapped, you can use clocks to rewind a few seconds and try again. There’s also a spikey shoe item, but the instructions don’t really tell you what it does. At least I haven’t been able to figure it out.

The puzzles get pretty difficult. Items like the lights and hammers only last for a few seconds, so you can waste time when you have them. It’s also very easy to trap yourself into a corner if you get too long. Zombillie has three different environments and over 100 levels. The post-apocalyptic art is creepy and beautiful, and the music is chilling. For $1.99, you can’t get much better.
