This was really fun and kinda cartoonishly cute. Its always nice to have a game that quickly sets the stage with a short little story. The enemies felt very on point and super accurate to the times we live in today. As a bunch of technology addicted zombies that crave power to play on their smartphones. Etc.

I don’t have a lot of specific feedback for this one. It feels super solid and like a more or less complete game. The only thing I can think of would be to add some more variation in the enemy’s appearance. Like a crab walking/spider looking creature that used to be a power in a power chair could be fun.

I would say you should definitely expand this game a bit with more story and more levels. It’s got just the right amount of cartoonish humor, a fun zappy superhero, and simplistic graphics.
