Si la difficulté ne le rend pas, il faut bien l'avouer, particulièrement abordable, qu'il aurait sans doute aussi mieux valu diviser les niveaux et laisser le choix de ceux-ci permanent, Abarenbou Tengu n'a cependant rien d'un mauvais jeu. Son principe délirant, comme une rencontre de Rampage et R-Type dans une maison de thé japonaise, est enchâssé dans une réalisation finement travaillée de shoot'em up plus sage, qui le met à l'abri des critiques qui auraient voulu tirer parti de sa marginalité pour se moquer de lui sur d'autres points. La preuve indiscutable de son succès, qui ressemble plus au fin mot d'une bonne blague, est qu'un titre comme lui soit sorti aux Etats-Unis, certes quelque peu remanié mais pas autant que pouvait le laisser penser le contenu.

The truth is, if it wasn't for some weird control issues, I would say that this is one of my favorite NES games. As it is, many of the good ideas found in Zombie Land are marred by the way the game feels. Thankfully you can get over that and enjoy a truly original game, but it's a shame that nobody thought to tighten up the gameplay before shipping it to stores.
Four stages of zombie-zapping action await in this weird action thriller from Meldac.

Zombie Nation is a cruel joke filled with repetitive game play, poor translation, and will definitely leave you thinking, "WTF?"
