Intro

It's the Age of Zombies, and you are Barry Steakfries, cool guy extraordinaire! This top-down zombie horde shooter is a really fun game, ported over from the mobile phone app!


Gameplay Tips

  • Always be moving. You want to typically be moving away from the zombies, and shooting back as they come towards you.
  • Sentry Turrets are your best friends on bosses; especially those who stay in or around the same area.
  • Don't waste your weapon pickups! If you pick up an SMG, don't continue randomly spraying; try to get a group of zombies together.
  • Group them up! Zombies will often come at you from all sides. When this happens, it can be beneficial to abandon the "walk backwards while shooting" method, and adopt a "clear a path" methodology. Getting cornered is the worst thing that can happen.
  • Beware of exploding zombies! Even if you shoot the exploders yourself, the splash damage can be enough to kill you in a single hit. Zombies that glow red will explode when they take damage or come into contact with you. Sometimes it's best to stop shooting to put some distance between you and the zombie that will explode in your face.
  • Use edges to your advantage. The zombies only know that they want your face. They will mindlessly walk towards you no matter what. Use this to your advantage and use set pieces to funnel zombies into your righteous bullets!



Roadmap

Step 1: Complete the Campaign without using any Continues

Do your best to stay alive! There are 18 levels in total, and none of them are terribly difficult. Even if you do die once or twice, you can revisit levels later to clean that up (step 2!), so just be sure to not die TOO much! If you are going for 100% completion and DO end up using a continue during this step, I suggest starting over from scratch right away. The campaign is not overly difficult, so while it will be somewhat time-consuming, it shouldn't be too tough!

By the end of this step you will have the following:

Darwin Award
Babyface Barry
Mummies I’d like to frag
Barry san
To the future and back
New Sheriff in Town
Untouchable


Step 2: Clean up levels you died on during Step 1

Use Chapter Select to revisit any levels you died on in Step 1, and this time, don't die! Check out the Gameplay Tips section above if you're having trouble.

By the end of this step you will have the following:

You ARE Barry Steakfries


Step 3: Survival Mode

Survival mode is the same thing as the campaign levels, but it goes on forever. Getting to round 15 is your first and only concern here, and fortunately that's not terribly far to get. Persevere and move on!

By the end of this step you will have the following:

Immunity Idol


Step 4: Clean up miscellaneous trophies

Odds are you've missed a few odds and ends. Check out the Trophy Guide below to fill in the gaps! Some of these will likely have been unlocked during your first playthrough. Refer to the individual trophies if you're having trouble.

By the end of this step you will have the following:

Peashooter
SUPERSIZED COMBO!
Frag Out
Mowing the Grass
SharpShooter
Camper

15 trophies ( 13  )

  • You Finished World 1 (Prehistoric)

    Story related - cannot be missed.

    See New Sheriff in Town

  • You finished World 2 (The 1930's)

    Story related - cannot be missed.

    See New Sheriff in Town

  • You finished World 3 (Egypt)

    Story related - cannot be missed.

    See New Sheriff in Town

  • You finished World 4 (Japan)

    Story related - cannot be missed.

    See New Sheriff in Town

  • You finished World 5 (Future)

    Story related - cannot be missed.

    See New Sheriff in Town

  • You finished World 6 (Western)

    Story related - cannot be missed.

    Each world consists of three levels, the third of which being a shorter level, but with a boss encounter. After beating the boss in a world, the trophy will pop. These must all be done in order. Note that the 6th world, Western, is a new world not found in the app version for those of you who've played on your phones, and it shows up AFTER the credits have finished.

  • Finish the Story Mode in one sitting without having to use a continue!

    Missable! I'm calling this missable simply for that if you lose all of your lives and use a continue, you will have to restart from the beginning. Note that you CAN put the Vita into sleep mode and walk away from the game, and it will still count as one sitting. You can even use the PS button and go through the XMB without ruining your chance at this trophy. Just make sure you don't close the application, or power off your vita (keep it charged!).

  • Finish the game without dying once

    This is actually a little misleading. This trophy can be obtained using chapter select. The determining factor is the "Best Deaths" score on the level select screen. Just use chapter select, and once you've got a "Best Deaths" score on every level, the trophy is yours.

    The final level is likely to give you a lot of trouble. Fortunately, GastNDorf has provided a simple method to cheat the level:



    The level (6-3) is comprised of a single boss who is ever-present, and wave upon wave of minor enemies. The idea here is to kill all of the zombies in the first two waves, progressing to the third wave, which will be all "giant" zombies. Once you reach the third wave, kill all but a few of the minor zombies, then position yourself like in the screenshot above, with yourself on one side of the wagon, and the boss (and other zombies) on the other side. Once you have achieved this positioning, clear out any zombies that might edge out towards you (the wagon can only support one or two giants, as well as the boss). With that complete, you are now free to edge slowly to the right side of the carts, shooting straight up, until you are hitting the boss, and he is "stuck".

    Sometimes the boss will teleport. It seems as though this can be influenced by doing as little damage to him prior to getting him stuck as possible, though this is not a certainty. It IS possible though to have the boss stuck, and NOT teleport, in which case you will have a successful and easy run at the level.

  • You finished a level by only firing the pistol

    Pretty straightforward, and most easily done on the first level. Just don't pick up any guns (simply picking up a gun will swap your pistol out), and this simple trophy is yours.

  • You earned a 100x or more combo from any weapon pickup

    To earn a combo with a weapon, you simply get kills with it before you run out of bullets (or time). The easiest weapons for this are those with spread. I suggest timing picking up a shield and the Buzzsaw weapon at the same time with many zombies on the screen. In the later levels this will come with ease.

  • You killed 10 Zombies with a single Grenade

    This trophy will come with natural play. Each level has hundreds of zombies, and they will always bunch up, as their one goal is to eat your face. Chuck a grenade into a group, and the trophy will pop.

  • You killed 50 Zombies with a Buzzsaw

    The Buzzsaw is actually a relatively dangerous weapon to use if you think you can just run into the horde once you have it equipped. Usually you will want to hang back and let them come to you, or you risk death. The best way to get this trophy is to also pick up a shield at the same time, in which case you CAN run into the horde of zombies, and this trophy will come easily.

  • Survive to Wave 15 on any Survival Mode map

    Survival mode is much like the story mode, in that the earlier levels are easier. Enemies on level one for the first 5-10 waves will take only a single bullet to kill, making this relatively easy. See the Gameplay Tips section above if you're having trouble. I suggest going for this after you've completed the campaign, so you've got some practice. Training and perseverance are key!

  • Get 75% or greater accuracy on any Chapter

    This is most easily done on the first level. Simply use your pistol and aim carefully. Note that spread shots from the shotgun count as individual shots (i.e. one shot is 3), so I do suggest sticking with the pistol. Since the first level doesn't have very many zombies, this shouldn't be too tough.

  • You killed 20 zombies without moving

    Once again, you will want to boot up the first level for this trophy. Simply stand still and kill anything that comes near you. The trophy will pop sooner than you might think!
