Guess what? A zombie game!

 This game had been suggested to me by someone in a comment and I would like to thank whoever did suggest it for that. Because Infectionator is simply awesome. You play as some kind of mad scientist who has the ability to spread a zombie-virus in some town and watch it and all the people become tasty treats to your new zombie army.
Dying people drop money (wut.) which you can pick up (how?) and buy upgrades for (from whom??) your virus with.
The game itself does not require great graphics or sounds, the retro look fits it well and the "bloop bleep" 16-bit-music creates a great retro-feeling about it.
 There are only minor issues I would like to adress though. First of all: there is a lot of less than subtle racism. You start in Africa in some tribe's village where people say token-sentences. You then spread to bigger African cities where all black people are apparently rastafaries and everyone in a suit is white. I have also not seen a single black woman in this game. All soldiers and police officers are white...
But I didnt mind that much. Becaus I thought it funny. Its so blatand that you cant take it seriously, really. Another part that was kind of annoying was the tutorial, that I mostly skipped, because itexplained the most self-explanatory parts while leaving out the ones that weren't (at least to me: it took me quite a while to figure out the update screen).
But despite these things, infectionator is really recommendable and quite a bit of fun if you want to procrastinate studying like me.
