Farts VS Zombies Review
- Nothing considered sacred in its all-encompassing 'reference'-palooza.
- A few clever in-game moments to enjoy.
- The jokes feel disjointed; references made for the sake of them.
- Chuck Norris? What is this, Barrens chat?
Without the needlessly disgusting theme, Farts VS Zombies could have concentrated on its unique gameplay instead of being caught up in the need to refer to everything it possibly can.

I'll be perfectly honest here and say that I had no idea what to expect when I jumped in to Farts VS Zombies by Mutant Games. Was it meant to be ironic? Was it simply a cash-in on keywords? In short I asked myself, 'How self-aware is this game?' and the answer was fairly clear. It knows exactly what it's doing and I'm not sure that manages to make the experience any better.
You'll have to take control of Colonel John Farter (resident Chuck Norris look-alike) as he creates multicolored flatus clouds that can be directed towards oncoming zombies by drawing a path. Special super-zombies require multiple hits from specifically colored clouds, while 'helpless' schoolgirls can be defended (or left to be used as a shield against the zombies). Occasionally you'll fill up a power bar that can allow you to unleash a torrent of vomit and various power-ups, including the ability to combine clouds for special effects, also help to clear the screen with relative ease.
Overtly disgusting content aside, the biggest problem that the game faces is in trying to make its reference-palooza in to something coherent. Throwing out images of zombified Michael Jackson, The Pope and Hitler along with references to various overused App Store themes just feels cluttered and overall effect is like trying to watch Epic Movie, Meet the Spartans and Vampire's Suck at the same time; some jokes manage to make it through, but it feels far too disjointed to appreciate as a parody.
Farts VS Zombies attempts to poke fun at the tired themes that have come to dominate the App Store and the Internet over the last year, but the half-polished gameplay is overpowered by the attention given to its ADD-powered reference checklist that tries to be offensive at all costs.
