Double Kick Heroes is a simple set of ideas: mixing heavy metal and zombies, and the rhythm game genre with a shooter, all in what feels like a lost episode of Metalocalypse. Sometimes it is the simplest ideas that create a great idea, and, along with an excellent trailer, certainly had me pumped for the game. I knew I was in for sure, though, when the blurb used the term Gundillac. It’s the vehicle of death the player rides in while raining down mass destruction, but also my new favorite name for anything.
This adventure is about survival on the highway while monsters give chase, and the introduction promises a high-octane ride, but it could be overrun by a few small problems other than the undead.
