Zombies Ate My Neighbors And Ghoul Patrol Are Creeping Back Out


The classics of Zombies Ate My Neighbors and Ghoul Patrol have been announced to be hitting us again with more of the Zombies content to enjoy

Just when you thought some of those classic video games from the 90s were dead and gone, pun intended, we are going to be seeing Zombies Ate My Neighbors and Ghoul Patrol landing back out there one more time. That is the latest announcement from Lucasfilm Games and Dotemu where they will be bringing this 1993 classic and its sequel back to us all on the Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC. All of which should be out there on June 29th for those looking to kill more zombies in those 16-bit visuals and audio many out there can remember still playing. This time you will not need to emulate and can use some of the new features that the newer hardware offers up to us all. You can start to get excited about it all for now.

In addition to seeing the full versions of these two games, there will be some fun things for the Soundtrack and other interviews from the original team for Zombies Ate My Neighbors mixed into all of this. There will also be a quick-save feature to employ and then those sweet achievements/trophies that gamers always like to hunt out there. Not to mention the fact that we get to try to relive those glory days of the Zombies titles with all of the bigger and crisper visuals that 90s technology only did so well. Not that seeing 16-bit sprites on a 4K screen is all that much better, but it is something. Less grainy? Maybe? Thankfully, we do not need to wait that long to get to see and play it all one more time here.

Zombies Ate My Neighbors And Ghoul Patrol — Announcement

The cult classic Zombies Ate My Neighbors and its sequel make their long-awaited return in Lucasfilm Classic Games: Zombies Ate My Neighbors and Ghoul Patrol! Play these classics from the golden age of 16-bit gaming with new enhancements and never-before-seen museum features.

Zombies Ate My Neighbors

Hey, where’s that scary music coming from? Yikes! It’s Zombies Ate My Neighbors, where you appear in every demented horror flick ever to make you hurl ju-jubes.

What are Zeke and Julie, our two wholesome teenage stars doing in a 16-bit game like this?! Trying to save the nice neighbors, cheerleaders, and babies from a fate worse than polyester!

Who could put this SLICE of suburbia in such goose-pimply hysteria? Zombies, relentless Chainsaw Maniacs, Mummies, Evil Dolls that just won’t die, Lizard Men, Blobs, Vampires, Giant Ants, Martians, and more.

Will these crazy kids survive the night? Find your way through 55 horror-filled levels like a grocery store gone bad, a shopping mall awry, a mysterious island, and your own backyard. Don’t miss “Weird Kids on the Block,” “Mars Needs Cheerleaders,” and “Dances With Werewolves.”

You can fend off the freaks with a virtual candy counter of weapons like uzi squirt guns, exploding soda pop, bazookas, weed whackers, and ancient artifacts. Also, grab power ups-o-rama like secret potions and bobo clown decoys. Does this game ever end?!

Ghoul Patrol

Zeke and Julie, our intrepid teenagers, visit the Ghosts and Ghouls exhibit at the city library, where they find an old treasure chest containing an ancient spirit book. Naturally, they cannot resist reading it. Suddenly, a horrific snaggle-toothed spirit emerges.

Now, this snarling phantom and his dastardly minions are infesting Metropolis and slithering their way into the history books, where they plan to rewrite history with their spooky ways. Only you have the power to go back in time to de-spook an encyclopedia of zombified historic dudes.

Terminate, with prejudice, using crossbows, ping-pong ball machine guns, Martian “Heatseeker” guns, and more.

Vaporize garbage can ghosts and ninja spirits, rescue bug-eyed librarians and wigged-out pirates, dodge flying books and adolescent-eating plants!

Only our two heroes have the power to get the mighty beastly spirit back into his book and stop the madness. Ghoul Patrol to the rescue!
