Barbara vs Zombies

A game I made a few years back, for my then-girlfriend Barbara.

She used to like an old light-gun game, House of the Dead, so I depicted her dodging and shooting zombies in this one. Included a backstory with silly romanticism, cats, and inside jokes.

It's been nearly a year since we broke up, and this game has been sitting forgotten in my hard disk. I eventually decided it shouldn't go to waste. It is, after all, a game meant to remind us of happy times.


  • Move: Arrow keys or WSAD
  • Shoot (once you get weapons): Space
  • Switch guns: Left Shift


Music is from RPG Maker XP. I was a fan of this program and games made with it, so I chose its music to supplement the nostalgia.

Congratulations I really liked the game, the only thing I would change is her jump, because in the game it ends up becoming much easier to jump the enemies than to shoot them, beautiful art and great music, I was glad to know your work I will follow your profile here on the itch, a big hug.

Thanks a lot for your kind words and your suggestions! 

pretty cool game, it was a nice experience!

Happy to hear that, thank you!
