PJ member DawnBringer and Dan Curran (Zombie Head Games) have finally released a new game in their zombie-slaying series:
Zombie TD Uprise, is a tower-defence game that features well-balanced gameplay, some nice pixelart and a lot of zombies!
This time the game is in survival-mode but there's also Challenge scenarios. New in the arsenal are the armor-reducing-mine-flinging Magnet tower, the linking Lightning tower and the very tactical CorpX-tower that will curse zombies into corpse-exploding bombs. Can you master the tricky dual-path Urban map?
 

Play it at ZombieHead or NewGrounds
