An alpha version of a Last Stand 3, a very promising flash game made by Con Artist Games, became available this week.
The third game in the flash series picks up before the the earlier games -- sort of a prequel to them. It takes place when the zombie infection is just starting to catch on like wildfire. Turning your friends and neighbours into mindless blood-thirsting zombies. You know the drill: it's a zombie game.
While the excellent Last Stand 2 (check it out if you haven't) was a base-defender type game, where you have to defend yourself from zombie waves, while working through a town, the new game in the series is getting a big expansion to gameplay. It is looking like a sort of adventure, light-ARPG game now; you'll have to do a lot more exploring through randomized locations, and you'll experience levels, skills (setting traps, picking locks, conversational skills, etcetra), and a customized appearance.
The alpha posted isn't admittedly much of a game at this point. It is only two rooms; you have two weapons and you go kill zombies. Pretty straight-forward. It should amuse you for only about two minutes. But -- the big but -- if you are a fan of the series you'll want to check it out to see what the Con Artists have been up to. The Last Stand 3 promises to be a pretty big deal as far as flash games go.
