The X is silent, but the music, unfortunately, is not.

Zombie Slayer Diox

zombie Slayer Diox (pronounced Dio) is a downloadable 3DS rhythm game in which you slay zombies in time with metal music. IT sounds awesome in concept, but is it worth your $7?



In Zombie Slayer Diox, you are Diox, a samurai guitarist who lures in zombies with his sweet guitar skills and slaughters them with his katana. Ussually, in the context of a video game ridiculous concepts such as this somehow work, but in this case it's just kind of stupid. The artwork is simple, but it works. The 3D effect, however, is tiring and overbearing so you likely won't use it for long.



As a rhythm game, it is heavily reliant on its music...well, even the music is that good. Though the game claims to have a heavy metal sound track, it is actually just really generic and repetitive faux guitar. The sound track is most llikely composed of midi files, but they didn't even bother trying to make any of the instruments sound the least bit real. Furthermore, the music is unrelentingly loud to the point that I just turned the volume way down.



The gameplay consists of swiping your stylus across the bottom screen in the direction indicated over the zombies head while simultaneously holding either the d-pad or the slide pad in the direction indicated by the color. Each of the four directions on the d-pad/circle pad will change your reticule to a different color. It doesn't work nearly as well as it sounds like it might, as simple as the concept is. It just winds up being annoying. You can turn the difficulty to easy, which eliminated the use of the directional color changing, but then the game is just boring.

Zombie Slayer Diox is a shameless and lazy cash in on the zombie craze. Worse than that, it costs $7 and takes up over 1,000 blocks of your memory space. Just download one of the hundreds of 99 cent or free zombie games on your smart phone instead.

Open iTunes, pick an obnoxious song that is not even god and turn it to max volume. It won't be pleasant.
