Thanks to Fortnite, a huge trend in battle royale games was started and it's still hanging around in games like Zombs Royale. This is an interesting take on the genre that presents a top-down 2D view of the battlefield. In many ways, you can appreciate a whole other side to the battle royale event with a perspective that offers a lot of information so that you can react and respond accordingly. Of course, it can seem a bit harsh to newcomers but there's no harm in jumping into match after match until you get the hang of it and are battling with the best of them.
About Zombs Royale
For those intimidated by battle royale games that have all the details and complexities like Fortnite and PUBG, this is a good way to get into it. The top-down view is very generous in terms of what it shows you while you're landing and when you're on the ground. It's also fairly intuitive as you go up to every sparkling object and learn what it's all about. It's fast to navigate and try out a variety of different items and weapons. You may or may not run into a more experienced player within the first few seconds, but it's all a learning experience.
How to Play
Zombs Royale is a 2D top-down battle royale game that is controlled between the mouse and the keyboard.
- Mouse Cursor - Aim
- W/Up Arrow - Move Up
- S/Down Arrow - Move Down
- A/Left Arrow - Move Left
- D/Right Arrow - Move Right

Regardless of what game mode you're playing, the goal is to eliminate opposing players. You typically start with only your bare fists and you can punch enemies to damage them or objects to break them. Crates and chests scattered around the field will contain items such as weapons or potions that can provide shields and healing. If you get eliminated, you need to wait until the next game to try again. You'll win if you (or your team) are the last one standing.
You can view your progress in the current season on the right side of the game mode selection. The more you play, the more you advance with every tier offering you new cosmetics to equip and items like XP, coins, and sprays.
Tips and Tricks
As a battle royale game, you need to be fast and constantly keep moving as players will almost always be on the hunt. You should also take advantage of objects while exploring and in battle since they can provide much-needed protection. Potions take a while to consume and leave you vulnerable, so never drink them out in the open.
