Zombie Simulator: Zombie Infection Simulation

Zombie Infection Simulation

You never know when the next zombie epidemic will spread, so better be prepared. The first step – besides watching the obligatory documentaries – is to study the tactics of the enemy.

Zombie Infection Simulation enables you to watch the undead doing their evil deed without putting yourself in danger. Probably based on extensive scientific research, this handy java applet simulates how a handful of zombies infects a human population.

Zombies, civilians and soldiers are represented as pixels. When human pixels meet zombie pixels, they panic and run. If they get in contact with a zombie, they become zombified. Soldiers can kill zombies, especially if you allow them to use guns (press ‘a’). Nevertheless, soldiers are quite ineffective against zombies – expect your population to be consumed quickly unless you interfere.

One way to interfere is to use advanced technology for surgical strikes (read: big bombs which leave nothing behind). By pressing ‘n’ you can activate an automated zombie annihilation which will undoubtedly kill countless civilians in the process – if there are any left.
