An elegantly simple arcade-style alien blaster that’s all meat and no fat.

Zigguarat Review

by on May 25, 2012

Processor-pulverizing 3D graphics; a gripping tale of love and loss; a kooky, talking, coelacanth sidekick… Ziggurat has absolutely none of these things. It’s as stripped down and simple as games get, and for that reason, it’s utterly compulsive. As the Last Human (briefly) Alive, your goal is to take as many bouncy, slow-moving alien jerks with you, as possible. So you aim and shoot. That’s it.

Timing your shots properly, however, results in a chain reaction that makes aliens rue the day they instated the buddy system as official policy. And yet, all the while, their attack patterns and numbers increase. Some hop. Some run. Some pretend your face is a turtle from Mario. After about a minute, it’s sheer chaos.

Death – and the eardrum-bursting scream that accompanies it – is inevitable. In essence, it’s the emotional arc other action games load with golden guns that fire kitchen sinks, but distilled into a couple of utterly sublime minutes. And it all feels amazing. We don’t leave home without Ziggurat, and we doubt it will ever leave our home screen.
