The original House of the Dead (and its sequels) is one of my absolute favorite arcade shooters of all time. And House of the Dead: Overkill brought a whole new experience to the franchise, with more dynamic characters and full-on adult content (we're talkin' drug use, strippers, and more f-bombs than Pulp Fiction can shake a stick at). Needless to say, it's a fantastic rail shooter.
For those who have longed for more HotD action, Sega just pushed Overkill: The Lost Reels to the Play Store. The game – which was promised back at GDC – brings all the original characters to the mix, including foul-mouthed playboy cop Isaac Washington, his unlikely (and reluctant) partner Agent G, fully-armed stripper Varla Guns, and the oft-forgotten busty blonde Candi Stryper.
Together the group is on a mission to do what it does best: slay some undead mutant thingies. There are three worlds in Story Mode: Papa's Palace of Pain, Ballistic Trauma, and Naked Terror for you to satisfy your bloodlust on – if you'd rather just slay hordes of the undead, though, there's also a survival mode that'll pit you up again nonstop droves of 'em.
The game will set you back $5 in the Play Store, so hit the widget and get to work.
