So everyone is wondering “How is Zombie Tycoon 2 played?”

I’ll try to satisfy your hunger for knowledge. Keep in mind that while everything below is true about multiplayer, it varies from mission to mission in the single-player campaign, mainly to avoid repetition and monotony.

Gameplay Basics

Let’s start with the absolute basics. Zombie Tycoon 2: Brainhov’s Revenge is a real-time strategy game. However, it’s not your classic RTS with resource gathering, base building and tech-tree climbing. No, it’s pure, unadulterated tactical zombie assault! You’ve got two zombie packs, a mobile base and a monster at your beck and call, each controlled using a different symbol button on the controller.


One zombie pack counts five of Tycoon’s shambling zombies or ten of Brainhov’s feral zombies. Their attributes vary, depending on their zombie type. There’s a total of six zombie types that you unlock by capturing specific buildings. I’m sure you spotted one or two of these zombie types in the teaser video. We’ll see how to capture buildings in a later post.


Your mobile base is where your scientist is hiding. If it’s destroyed, the game is over. It’s not defenseless, though. When it’s not burning rubber, it’s armed with a powerful machine gun! This mobile base also doubles as a zombie spawner. If any of your zombies die within the spawner’s operating range, or if one your zombie squads is entirely decimated outside of that range, your mobile base starts spitting out new zombies.


As for monsters … You guys are not ready to hear about the monsters yet.

That’s it for today, I hope you grasp the general idea of the gameplay now.

Stay tuned!
