Zombie Shooter 1.0
Blast the undead into a very bloody mess with this free arcade-style game

If all those hours spent watching "The Walking Dead" has given you a taste for slaughtering the undead then you just might appreciate Zombie Shooter, a simple isometric shooter which provides a great deal of blood-soaked fun.

The plot (such as it is) sees you wandering around a secret research base, trying to figure out what's going on, but don't expect much in the way of complexity or depth. There are no difficult puzzles here: you're just running around a maze, slaughtering zombies and other creatures, while picking up weapons, ammo and health packs, until you find your way to the next level.

And while the graphics here are a little basic, it's this overall simplicity that is Zombie Shooter's appeal. You don't have to pay attention to some lengthy back story, or master a lengthy list of commands and options; in fact, we got started without reading any instructions at all. Everything works much as it does in many similar arcade-style games, so you'll point your gun with the mouse, move using the arrow keys, left-click to fire and press 1, 2, 3 and so on to select your weapons. That alone is enough to get you a very long way, and if you do make a mistake and die then you can respawn in a keypress to try again.

If you prefer your games to have, well, a little more thought, then obviously this rather basic approach will be limiting. We're big fans of zombie-slaughtering, for instance, but even we began to get a little bored in some sections of the game, where essentially all you have to do is hold down the left mouse button and wait until you've destroyed everything in sight.

Still, there are more challenging sections. Being approached by two crowds of zombies, for instance, from different directions, can present you with a dilemma. Particularly if you've only got the slow-loading shotgun to hand.

And so, if you're looking for some quick and simple arcade action, Zombie Shooter may well appeal. You can jump in and out of the game quickly, it's all very easy to learn, and while the graphics are basic this does mean it should deliver good performance on just about any hardware (the program runs on anything from Windows 95 upwards).

Verdict:

The graphics are rather basic, but Zombie Shooter is still fun to play (in small doses, at least) and it should run happily on just about any hardware

Unreal Engine 4.8

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."

8.48 brings:
    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
    - New Tone Mapper
    - Support for all the latest VR hardware including Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Steam VR and HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and Sony's Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4
